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.

I'm long kleenex. When the snowflakes, social justice warriors and virtue signallers have to process the fact that they have been fooled for their entire lives, they will need to go through the five stages of acceptance at lightening speed.

Boycott Tweeter, CNN, and MSNBC. Drive these scumbags out of business.

ZH has always been on the cutting edge, but even that is changing.

There is the P2P change.

Tylers, set up in the new too.

Who is using WebTorrent today?

WebTorrent is still pretty new, but it's already being used in cool ways:



I also like but more so the fact you can do your own in that too... and what they are up to...what a time...a .bad and good struggle.


I prefer freedom. there will be more...

I'm not sure how George is staying alive at this point. Better not open any letters, packages or pizza boxes.

George Webb's videos should be front page news all over the country.


I'm considering getting FB and Twitter accounts just to get the word out.

Obadiah's picture

Wow been following George for a couple months..  Flipping amazing gumshoe reporting.  Big Balls.


The BEAST ( One World System) is so close to receiveing the DEADLY WOUND people, and THEN the False Christ, who will look just like the Christ you remember from paintings, will "Fix It".  He arrives first to decieve at the 6th Trump.  Don't Believe him.  This will be the 6th Trump NOT the 7th and Final Trump.  Lucifer is the Father of Lies and the one who these sick twisted meat puppets serve, to recieve power.  Question is will the "False Christ" serve them up for us on TeVee to be gutted?  MMM I think so, that will make millions say "He's the Savior!!!"  WutWoh


Get into the Word that will prepare so that YOU you not to be tricked again.


Try this preacher in Revelations, laying it all out for us, to those whom have an ear to hear...

You might think you're funny, making a topical Simpson's reference.

Did you know that there is a tribe of Jebusites in the Old Testament?  I hadn't either when I laughed at that intentional mispronunciation.  Now I'm up to Job, so about halfway through the OT.

Yeah...the real shit is Netanyahu and the Talpiot Program...and how Isreal runs all the security, hospital, court infrastructure, the energy distribution, etc of the world because they've got kill switches.  

Isreal is dominating the high-technology sector through Operation Talpiot.

All these "crises" and "false flags" are there to distract from this fact.

FoggyWorld's picture

Where the hell is our government and why is this suppression of a murder story going on?

Is Sessions still in office and does he care about anything other than pot?

He is NOT doing the job we expected him to do.  Maybe it's time for Gowdy.

He's resting comfortably at Shady Swamp Federal Nursing Home where he remains recused from all matters involving law, and law enforcement.

Along with the rest of the pathetic frauds on the red team "opposition party".

Mr. Universe's picture

Why would they investigate? If anyone tired they might be gently reminded who is in charge of the swamp and if they wish to remain a denizen they better knock it off. Oh and here are a couple of candid shots of the last Pizza Party you attended? Who knew you were that flexible? Capiche?

The Imperial City is a terrible place full of evil people. Nothing good ever comes from there. Paging all deities: it needs to be destroyed for the good of humanity.

If they do not do what we think is right, only one thing remains....

The day may have come when the .gov at all levels needs a check on it the way the founders intended, the dejure voluntary assembly at the local, county, state, and national levels.

It can be a great help as it can tap into the hands and minds of the people and wake them from their slumber, and uncaring apathy, while also empowering them as they gain a stake by their participation. That creates "buy in" -  COMMITMENT, SUPPORT and HELP. That lightens the burden for all. It can help you renew community, address injury, and correct mistakes.

Most have forgotten, but that will change very soon.

Pain has a way of waking people up. They will be upset and placing blame when they really need to work toward solutions. Keep cool, acknowledge causation, promise justice, and switch to solutions focus.

Here is the Dejure Handbook. It is a critical guide. There is much good historical precedent, but remember, you are the law, the living "document" - use it wisely.  History is yours too.

Here is Robert's Rules of Order. (attached too with summary and simplified guide)

This is for meetings & Procedure. It is a difficult thing as people are people, but that's the way it is.

Remember to keep order but also consider rule changes like speaking time and other ways to streamline in more difficult times - especially emergencies, with pressing issues. The slow deliberate way may not be expedient for your needs, but always review, and go slower when you can, or delegate to committees, have them report, but always check on their work in detail when you have time. They can slip things by you, or unintentionally miss something. That can cost you.

Good Luck to everyone,.

Do Not Get Suckered into another "Civil War" Arrest the crimiinals, hold hearings, review EVERYTHING.

It has been asserted that Kim Dotcom tried to hack into Seth Rich's Gmail account and plant fake evidence.  Kim Dotcom drafted the following open letter to Seth Rich's family.  This is worth reading:
