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.

All rested up? ... Good, we have work to do.

We are going out on the streets of DC. .... We are going to try and stay out of the tunnels (and off of the Metro as much as possible)

The city is crawling with operatives that work for The Evil Pirates.

Unfortunately quite a few of them have badges and guns.

Does that make you uncomfortable? ... Yea, me too.

Once upon a time all of the good guys could carry a gun on the mean streets of DC. ... Now only the bad guys have guns and a few Park Police Rangers. ... Those LEO dudes are super cool and they have horses. No kidding, great big beautiful horses. And guns, did I mention they have guns? ... So if you ever get in a jam with the bad guys in DC look for a Park Police dude. He might be able to help you.

He kinda your best shot at help from LEO in DC.

Let's get going. ....George is up and at'tm early.

Where first?..... We're going to a School Play.

Say what?

DC is also a city of commerce. .... But street vendors or Wall Street traders they ain't. ..... It is the Pirate Business (tm). .. Very nasty, very, very lucrative but all very carefully hidden.

I'm getting worried about George.

Everbody else is getting shut down, or even murdered,yet nothing happens to his narrative.

I hope we are not being spoon fed disinfo.......

Already have.

I think most people following George have already figured it out.

This is a spy vs spy war for turf basically.

George we will call Mossad Lite or Freelancer Spooks LLC. vs. The Clinton Satan Foundation, DynCorpse and silent partner the CIA./ISIS who were/are starting a scorched earth policy on USSA soil. ... That cooks the goose that lays the golden eggs for one 'last supper'. ................ Apparently George and Mossad Lite aren't ready to harvest dinner yet.

They aren't done squeezing out golden eggs from the goose.

Well, anything that puts Pirates in jail is a good thing.

But we aren't even to close to the end of the battle, much less seeing any Pirates in leg irons.

At least they are making it infotaining.

Right there with you it really a school play?  Then won't Hillary and Podesta want to get to the bottom of it and show that Seth Rich is actually alive?

Twitter -- Wall Street failure -- has probably realized that if it follows Soros's directives it will never go under, regardless how badly otherwise Twitter is managed.  Infinite Soros support.

It's breaking on 4chan (so take it with a grain on salt) that Jerome Corsi has stated that he has proof of DNC involvement with Rich's death. Corsi writes for WND and apparently has been at the white house in the very recent past (e.g. this week.) Reportedly going to disclose the evidence on Tuesday.

grunk's picture

About an hour ago, Alex Jones said Corsi was going to release the information Tuesday unless something happens to him. Then it gets released sooner.

Kind of wish he'd release it tomorrow and let it fester through the weekend.

Why is it that all the Seth Rich related boards on 4chan are being systematically closed and archived?  Little odd no?

I heard John Kerry served in Vietnam.

Corsi was just credentialed as InfoWars' WH pool rep.

So a suspicious murder is not even allowed to be talked about?


I really didn't pay this story much attention until the Gestapo tried to shut it down.

If you know that twitter is a leftist propaganda machine that censors comments that interfere with their agenda, why would you use it?  Better to ignore it and let them depend on their leftist users for their revenue.

SETH will bring the reeking pile of shit all down therefore nothing will happen. It must be squashed.

Incredible that is just no coverup anymore.  How long will it be before we the people get too tired of orchestrated serfdom?

I've often wondered the same thing.  I think that when there is popular pushback that might have some effect, then there will be moar war, more pervasive war, and financial instability such that most will be glad for a more global governing authority to restore order - sort of like a pistol with a "U" shaped barrel pointing right back at the shooter.  There is no human way out.

For me, it's happening at about the same rate as for society.

Earlier this month, I fought off the IRS in US Tax Court.  Currently I'm just about done reading "Cracking the Code" and will then apply it.

It was really neat, reading it yesterday in a hyperbaric chamber (pressure and breathing 100% oxygen seems to help the concussions), and realizing how much like computer code our legal code really is.  But rather than using variables like X, Y, or Z for terms, they have reused existing terms but defined them to mean something different.

So, being paid "wages" or "income" means being paid by the federal government, or using federal property for gain (office, for instance).  They could have easily invented a word, like "mxyzptlk", to use for the term -- but instead, they chose a more confusing route.

I do realize there's a chance that I'll end up kidnapped (imprisoned) for acting on my new-found knowledge, and I'm okay with that.  I am too tired of orchestrated serfdom, and am actively doing something about it.

Get the message you mugs? "WND", who you have never heard of before, is suddenly who you should be listening to, bitches! Thank God for ZH, keeping everyone on message.


any_mouse's picture

No, you are the only one who hadn't heard of WND.

Are they credible?

Do your own analysis then make your own decision.

The point of the article is not WND, it is Twitter's secret policies and arbitrary actions to "fake" news.


Oh, "Spaced Out", you got me.
