Let’s forget about Twitter.

This update is copied from CJ Hopkins; for the entire wonderfully snarky post, click HERE.

And so the “Twitter Files” Limited Hangout has come to its inevitable, ignominious end. It is over… If you missed the final twists and turns in the Twitter-Files story (R.I.P), Matt Taibbi… published an update on Racket News, his “Twitter-killing” Substack newsletter covering the juicy bits.

Here’s the “money” paragraph, or most of it …

“In doing all this Elon immolated the last remnants of any reputation he had as a free speech advocate and gave immeasurable succor to the assorted David Brocks, AOCs, and Renee DiRestas who view him as an antichrist. All can now point to his outbursts of cartoon censorship and argue individual eccentric CEOs are the real danger to free expression, not squads of executives working in oligopolistic secrecy with the FBI, DHS, and ten million Pentagon-funded Centers for Securing Whatever. It won’t be true, but Elon’s public meltdown will in the short run take a ton of pressure off these villains, while accelerating the piranha frenzy currently skeletonizing Twitter’s profits …”

What Matt can’t quite say (and I understand why) is that Elon’s meltdown will not just “give immeasurable succor” to the David Brocks, AOCs, and other functionaries and puppets who have demonized him, and “take a ton of pressure off these villains,” it will effectively kill the future of the story, and consign what has been reported so far to the “lunatic fringes” of the Internet, where no one “normal” will ever be forced to pay it any serious attention again…

From now on, any further Twitter Files reporting — any actual reporting on the Censorship Industrial Complex at all — will be summarily dismissed as another episode of Elon’s Flying Narcissistic Circus. There will be no more congressional hearings. Anyone who continues to cover the story (i.e., the actual story, not the Twitter Files) will be branded a minion of Elon Musk, “a right-wing extremist conspiracy theorist,” no more serious than a “9/11 truther.”

I hope Substack Notes can replace Twitter, so I posted the short message below. I never did Twit except for checking the T box on Substack when I published my stories. But this brief opportunity has gone the way of all censored content into an Orwellian “memory hole” somewhere. The minions muzzled it, and I already forget that platform’s name.

This is part of an essay about physicians titled “Et tu, Brutus?” that will drop in a few days. I put 30 hours into it, but this does not predict that it will be well-received. If you want to read it now, click HERE. If you have suggestions, I can still change it.

Notes is a new space on Substack for us to share links, short posts, quotes, photos, and more. I plan to use it for things that don’t fit in the newsletter, like work-in-progress or quick questions. Come along and help me figure it out.


How to join

Head to substack.com/notes or find the “Notes” tab in the Substack app. As a subscriber to Surviving Healthcare, you’ll automatically see my notes. Feel free to like, reply, or share them around!

You can also share notes of your own. I hope this becomes a space where every reader of Surviving Healthcare can share thoughts, ideas, and interesting quotes from the things we’re reading on Substack and beyond.

If you encounter any issues, you can always refer to the Notes FAQ for assistance.

Let’s hope this works. In the meantime, sell a few free subscriptions for me and give away a few books. Best and thanks.

The Cassandra’s Memo ebook is free HERE if you promise to send this download link to five or more others. With your help, we will educate some people sitting on the fence.

BONUS: I am also giving away the Hormone Secrets and Butchered by “Healthcare” ebooks using the same arrangement; please download them free HERE and HERE if you send the links to your friends. 

We are in an information war. As Peter McCullough says, once someone sees, they cannot unsee. You are drafted—only if you give a damn—to start a Substack, upload your entire phone list, then mail them once a week as I suggested HERE in “Your Conscription Notice Into the Revolutionary Army.” You have something to say, and even if you doubt that, you should copy and send out the words of others. If you think this is too much work, contemplate what it was like at Valley Forge during the Revolutionary War. You may find yourself in a situation like that someday soon.

    The media is a constant stream of bull. I used to watch it.
    The medical profession is completely gone off the rails. The pretty lab coats. The high school chemistry sets. The endless supply of toxins disguised as miracle cures. Most are designed to provide minor relief from symptoms, rarely ever s cure, then a lifetime of side effects and addiction.
    You don’t sue companies like Pfizer or Purdue, you put them out of business, burn everything they have ever produced, jail every top executive and scientist. Anything less is a waste of time. And that should apply to any corporation, person, or politician who willfully destroys the environment and/or people and then lies about it.
    I only believe in God, my wife and children.

    Hopkins nails it every time.

    Without naming names, I got into a Notes “discussion” with the same person as CJ that used linguistic gymnastics to tell us fee speech “needs to be moderated.”

  • Avatar George says:

    FWIW, I found twitter invaluable during the dark days of the pandemic. It was the broadest source of good pandemic information even under heavy censorship.

    I still think it is the best place to find breaking news.

    • Avatar Robert Yoho MD (ret) says:

      How do you search it or do you just find people to follow who have not been censored?

      • Avatar George says:

        First, it was easy to avoid censors even on facebook. People just started writing in code. Maxinated, or other such things.

        It’s about finding the right people to follow, but that didn’t take long TBH, I easily found some like minded people and then follow who they follow as you learn who is posting good stuff. There are a few super qualified people posting (who now also have substacks), but they post short things and news on twitter first usually.
