Twitter Suspends WND For Seth Rich Story

Tyler Durden's picture

A couple of days ago, WND ran a story entitled "Bombshell: Donna Brazile Warned Off Private Eye On Seth Rich Murder."  The story was sourced back to on-the-record quotes provided by Detective Rod Wheeler who was hired by the Rich family shortly after their son's suspicious murder in July 2016.  Among other things, Wheeler said that it was former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile who allegedly called police and the Rich family and demanded to know why a private investigator was “snooping” into Rich’s death.

“The high-ranking DNC official that called the police after I inquired about Rich’s case was Donna Brazile,” veteran homicide detective Rod Wheeler told WND. “Why shouldn’t I reveal who it was?”

To promote the story, WND sent the following tweet:


Unfortunately, Twitter seemed to take issue with the story and sent a message to WND demanding that they "Delete Tweet."

When they refused, a follow-up message from Twitter informed WND that their account had been effectively frozen.

"We have determined that you have violated the Twitter Rules, so we've temporarily limited some of your account features.  While in this state, you can still browse Twitter, but you're limited to only sending Direct Messages to your followers - no Tweets, Retweets, or likes."


Of course, Twitter refused to highlight which of their rules (which can be found here) had been violated when asked by WND.  After a quick review, we must admit that we would have a hard time identifying which rule was 'violated' as well.  Here is a list of Twitter's "Abusive Behavior" rules...see if you can figure out which of them was violated.

  • Violent threats (direct or indirect): You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism.
  • Harassment: You may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others. Some of the factors that we may consider when evaluating abusive behavior include:
    • if a primary purpose of the reported account is to harass or send abusive messages to others;
    • if the reported behavior is one-sided or includes threats;
    • if the reported account is inciting others to harass another account; and
    • if the reported account is sending harassing messages to an account from multiple accounts.
  • Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.
  • Multiple account abuse: Creating multiple accounts with overlapping uses or in order to evade the temporary or permanent suspension of a separate account is not allowed.
  • Private information: You may not publish or post other people's private and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, street address, or Social Security/National Identity numbers, without their express authorization and permission. In addition, you may not post intimate photos or videos that were taken or distributed without the subject's consent. Read more about our private information policy here.
  • Impersonation: You may not impersonate others through the Twitter service in a manner that is intended to or does mislead, confuse, or deceive others. Read more about our impersonation policy here.
  • Self-harm: You may encounter someone considering suicide or self harm on Twitter. When we receive reports that a person is threatening suicide or self harm, we may take a number of steps to assist them, such as reaching out to that person expressing our concern and the concern of other users on Twitter or providing resources such as contact information for our mental health partners.

But that's not really the point now is it?  Perhaps the reason we can't find the 'rule' that was violated is because Twitter doesn't overtly publish their policy which demands the censoring all media which conflicts with their 'progressive' worldview.

Or maybe Twitter simply deemed the story to be 'fake news'?  If so, perhaps Twitter could share their evidence that negates the on-the-record quotes reported by WND.  Or, maybe Twitter just assumed that an upstanding citizen like Brazile, a woman who destroyed her own integrity by sharing debate questions with Hillary's campaign and subsequently lying about those actions on every media outlet in existence, would never do such a thing.

Moreover, if Twitter is now in the business of censoring 'fake news' then perhaps they can explain why our friends at CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post seem to be able to publish numerous 'fake news' stories, on a daily basis, without consequence?  Remember that whole 'Golden Showers' dossier that CNN pumped relentlessly over Twitter that was subsequently debunked with very minimal efforts...


Curiously, we don't remember CNN or Jim Acosta being temporarily suspended for pumping that story.

Note the Twitter rules listing both: Gender and Gender Identity.

Confirming even in their unicorn world, that they aren't the same.  So where Gender is important (showers and bathrooms, etc.) Identity is not important.

"are they just trying to look guilty?"

... well, let's shine more spotlight on Seth Rich's assassination ... and the Klinton Krime Kartel's and the DEEP SWAMP critters' news “censorship” ...

... portions of this article posted on The European Times on May 24th, 2017 might shed some light on this murder/assassination plot by the Klinton Kriminal Kartel and their parasites ...

... also note that for those waiting for the Kim Dotcom "bombshell", this article might explain and also shed some light ...

... some of the key highlights of the articles:

... “Another intriguing Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today detailing the surging “Deep State” war against President Donald Trump states that the Seth Rich “trap” gambit, which destroyed former FBI Director James Comey, appears ready to be sprung in its entirety—and whose effects once sprung will be the complete destruction of the US mainstream propaganda media and its leftist Democratic Party masters.” ...


... “With Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta having previously warned, on 22 February 2015, that “I’m definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it”, this report continues, the SVR became “alarmed/highly concerned” when, during early July 2016, intercepted signals traffic in the United States “suggested/leaned towards” that Seth Rich’s life might be in danger—and that SVR Director Mikhail Fradkov authorized an emergency contact between his agency and the US State Department to reveal the details of—but, and shockingly, when Russian diplomats presented the SVR findings to US authorities, on 7 July, they were immediately expelled from the United States—and as we had detailed in our 13 July 2016 report titled “Assassination Of Top US Democratic Party Official Leads To FBI Capture Of Clinton “Hit Team” .


... “Three days later, on 10 July, this report grimly notes, Seth Rich was assassinated with his believed to be assassins captured by US federal police forces after a running gun battle two days later on 12 July—and who were named in their original charging documents as 19-year-old Keyante Edwards, 18-year-old Alpha Jalloh and 20-year-old Keith Jones—all three of whom have completely disappeared from all US record searches of those charged with and/or convicted of crimes.


Of the most important of these three believed to be assassins of Seth Rich, this report says, is Alpha Jalloh, whom though identified in his Washington D.C charging document as being 18-years-old, the SVR had previously identified, in 2015, as being 26-years-old and a “high level fence and shipper” belonging to an international car theft criminal organization operating in New York City and New Jersey.


In fact, this report continues, it was through the SVR’s electronic surveillance of Alpha Jalloh that concerns were first raised about Seth Rich when in early July, 2016, this international criminal, who had been “suspiciously” released after his 2015 arrest, and believed to be an FBI informant, was discovered to be in direct contact with both Hillary Clinton’s New York City campaign office and the DNC office in Washington D.C..


... “As to how Seth Rich accomplished his sending of tens-of-thousands of secret Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party documents and emails to Wikileaks, this report explains, was through his “alliance/partnership” with the German-Finnish Internet entrepreneur named Kim Dotcom—who since 2012 has been in a protracted legal battle with the United States from his home in New Zealand


Kim Dotcom’s battle against the United States government, this report explains, was instigated by the Obama regime who were threatened by their powerful Hollywood elitist backers to shut his Megaupload file sharing website down (Hollywood threatened both the Democrats and Republicans that they would lose their massive financial support unless they targeted Kim Dotcom) ...”


... “Upon President Trump taking power in January, 2017, and his loathing the leftist-communistic Hollywood elite as much as Dotcom, this report further notes, Kim Dotcom began negotiations with the Trump administration to have all of his charges dropped in exchange for his providing evidence proving that Seth Rich, not Russia, released all the Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party documents and emails to Wikileaks—and that culminated in the unprecedented secret meeting between Kim Dotcom, FBI Director Comey and CIA Director Mike Pompeo in New Zealand on 23 April.


... “The Trump administrations secret meeting with Kim Dotcom, however, was nearly thwarted though, this report continues, when FBI Director Comey arrived prior to CIA Director Pompeo in New Zealand to begin negotiations—but with Dotcom refusing to meet privately with Comey unless Pompeo was there too—and President Trump being so outraged at this “backstabbing” attempt, he fired Comey a fortnight later telling Russian officials that this FBI Director was a “nut job”.


Two days after President Trump fired FBI Director Comey for his attempting to sabotage the negotiations with Kim Dotcom, this report details, the SVR reported that a “dark web” “kill order contract” worth 82,900 Bitcoin’s (now valued at over $198 million) had been issued against Trump—and though the SVR is not claiming responsibility, a highly-coded “dark web” conversation held between approximately 5 of these conspirators in the United States intelligence communities “Deep State” conspiring to assassinate President Trump was “released” to the public showing their plot plans, and as evidenced in their “conversations” held on Wednesday, 17 May from 2:31 pm to 3:15 pm

Considering that was the media that Trump used to get elected I am sure that it is on the Deep State's target list for elimination.


Be careful what you ask for as you are being manipulated.

Hello T_T.

Long time, No see, here at ZH.

Absolutely a possibility there. Nothing should be discounted at this point.

They always 'select' the prez since JFK.

you guys are all so stupid.  that kimdotcom thing was blockbuster!!  the headline lied when it said "warned"  she enquired... 


i agree that it looks like foul play...but it is realllly stupid for a presidential candidate to kill a leaker after the leak...clinton may be a lot of things but she ain't stupid....


maybe it was russia?  how many of you think it is a 0% chance it is russia, raise your all are so fucking stupid, the rest are ok.  you guys and your binary's it working for you? 

jeff montanye's picture

thank you for the invitation.  lets take it bit by bit; i'll pass on kim, he seems a starfucker or something but i don't insist on it.  hillary clinton is stupid.  she let the fbi not investigate the seth rich murder and she didn't let them see the servers.  the fbi is ok if the awan brothers killed seth rich.  comey and mccabe know they have to go along to get along.  but how you going to stop the leaks if you don't go outside of internal discipline?  they didn't take his wallet because it was a warning to others.

it wasn't russia.  absolutely counter to their interests.  and here's how you know.  if it had been russia the fbi would have been investigating it with hundreds of agents from no later than july 22, 2016.  not "never have investigated it at all", the tell of deepstate corruption.

you guys are in some deep shit.  you answered a couple of questions a little too fast and let time creep by so that a restatement looks even more desperately false. 

in pilot's lingo, you have screwed the pooch.

Yes Hitlery isn't that  stupid, yet she seriously asked "Can't we drone him" ( Juilian Assange) after he leaked information.

The reason Seth Rich's murder hasn't been pursed vigorously is becuase the oppostion/law is either complicit or has skeletons in their closest as well.  Nothing to see here move along.

Take 9/11 for instance.  Based on comments Trump has made in the past you don't think he knows 9/11 was an inside job.  He and his entire adminstration are looking the other way and have no desire/intention to investigate and prosecute.

It's what #1A is about...

el buitre's picture

Yeah, Trump seems to know quite a bit about high rise construction.  In the early naughts he was on record saying that there was no way smudge furniture fires dropped WTC #1 & 2.  Particularly as all the beams were still encladded with asbestos.  I bought Prof. Judy Wood's book.  It is meticulously done by an honest academic professional, her specialty field being engineering - material science,  and well worth the price.  The only question I have at this point is ... was it several micronukes or a scalar weapon which dropped #1 & 2.  I think #7 was a conventional demolition.  Wood's arguments against micronukes (which Israel had stolen from the US arsenal), is that they would have shattered the fragile "bathtub" and everything below ground level would have been flooded by the Hudson.  She also claims that a traditional demolition would have done the same thing when those 100+ floors of concrete pancaked and hit the ground at terminal velocity.  The reason it didn't was that most of the towers were "dustified."  Both a scalar weapon and micronukes could, in theory, dustified the towers.  I am leaning toward scalar.  "Rebecca Roth" in her three books pretty much solved who did it and how, other than the physics of the demolition.  Spoiler Alert - Israel was the co-ordinator of the operation assisted by neocons (Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz et. al.) and air force traitors in the USA.  I suspect that Boy Bush was left out of the loop before the fact as too incompetent.  Cover-up handled by that square-jawed paragon of virtue now in the news again - Mueller, who was appointed as FBI director 2 months prior.

JethroBodien's picture

The books you are referring are red herrings (dis information) and likely funded by the CIA.


Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth.  The video below is a scientific look at what happened to the towers.  Video is prepared by and endorsed by thousands of architects and engineers for 9/11 truth.

Thanks Jeff.  I'll give it a read

Pinefox's picture

I was project manager on a 62 story highrise office building and the structural engineer was the same one who designed the World Trade Center.  I had personal discussion with him after 9/11.  The upshot of the conversation was that the jet fuel added to the intensity of the fire and accelerated the burn of all the furnishings and the fire became so hot that it compromised the tempering of the steel and that the fire proofing on the steel was not able to handle the speed and intensity of the burn.  Once the steel failed and the floor fell into the one below, there was no way the structure would could withstand the weight of the floors as the pancaked down.

Amen for an off topic post distracting from the matter at hand in an attempt to smear everything into a big conspiracy basket? Give me a break.

JethroBodien's picture

The real conspiracy is the so called NIST investigation.   Look just watch the video I provided and draw your own conclusions.  Thousands of Architects and Enginners provide scientific/imperical evidence on what happend to the 3 World Trade Center towers.  If you don't watch the video thats certainly your prerogative but please stop throwing around "conspiracy theory" simply becuase you choose to remain ignorant on the facts and science.  Note I said facts and science not wild conjecture and silly nonsensical specualtion.

Why do you think the 9/11 issue won't die?.  It won't die because well meaning, open minded, intelligent people from all walks of life and vocations have looked at the scientific evidence and that evidence is not consistent with the offical story (lie).

How did any jet fuel get to building 7 ? 

TBT or not TBT's picture

A big heavy hot GE turbine engine at maximum thrust with fuel still in it doing 550 knots could have sailed right through either tower and and through a floor of WTC 7 then lodged in some part of WTC 7 where there was plenty of combustible crap like plastic fiber carpet, fat people, paper, furniture, crap like that.

Srth Rich is the story here, and all the tangents, not your b.s.

JethroBodien's picture

So naive.  Seeking the truth is the story here.   Your telling me you can't see the parallels between what transpired with John and Robert Kennedy, 9/11 and what is happening now isn't related.  Kennedy warned us about what is now commonly referred to as the "deep state".
