( Daily Caller ) Twitter buried significant portions of tweets related to hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chair John Podesta in the last two months of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Twitter’s systems hid 48 percent of tweets using the #DNCLeak hashtag and 25 percent of tweets using #PodestaEmails, Twitter general counsel Sean Edgett said in his written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

“Approximately one quarter (25%) of [#PodestaEmails tweets] received internal tags from our automation detection systems that hid them from searches,” Edgett said.

He added that “our systems detected and hid just under half (48%) of the Tweets relating to variants of another notable hashtag, #DNCLeak, which concerned the disclosure of leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee.”

Just two percent of the tweets using the #DNCLeak hashtag came from “potentially Russian-linked accounts,” according to Edgett. He explained that Twitter hid the tweets as “part of our general efforts at the time to fight automation and spam on our platform across all areas.”

Anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks published the DNC and Podesta emails, which were damaging to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, throughout the election.

Among other things, the leaked emails revealed party officials secretly aided Hillary Clinton during her primary battle against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and exposed ostensibly neutral journalists as pro-Clinton partisans.

TRUMP TO END DIVERSITY LOTTERY VISA: “We’re so politically correct, we’re afraid to do anything,”

Posted on


( Fox News ) President Trump vowed Wednesday to scrap the federal immigration program that allowed the New York City truck terrorist to enter the United States, and said “animals” like the suspect in Tuesday’s attack belong in Guantanamo Bay.

 Speaking just before a Cabinet meeting, Trump took a somber tone in the wake of the vicious attack that left eight dead and a dozen hurt. In addition to vowing to end the State Department’s Diversity Immigrant Visa Program, which is how suspect Sayfullo Saipov came into the United States in 2010 from Uzbekistan, Trump called for swift and harsh justice.

“We have to come up with a punishment that much worse than what these animals are getting now,” said Trump, who is asking Congress to end the diversity visa program.

… Trump took aim Wednesday at the diversity immigration program, as well as others that allow “chain migration,” in which immigrants can enter the country simply to be united with a relative already living here.

The type of visa Saipov possessed could theoretically have allowed dozens of his family members into the U.S.

“We will take all of the necessary steps to take care of our communities and our country has a whole,” Trump also said Wednesday. “What we have now is a joke and a laughingstock.”

The president instead wants foreigners allowed into the country only under merit-based programs.

“We’re so politically correct, we’re afraid to do anything,” he said.

New York attack: truck terrorist left behind an ISIS flag


The manager of Saipov’s local grocery store in Paterson, Farm Boy Super Fresh Supermarket on Getty Avenue, had a very different opinion of the man.

She claims that Saipov was an ‘erratic’ customer who berated the cashiers, the New York Post reported.

‘Every time he came here he was always erratic or arguing with the cashiers,’ the manager, who did not want to provide her name, told The Post.

‘He would get angry very fast…. he would break the cans, dumb things,’ she said, adding that he was known for his rude behavior.

‘I feel like he was prejudiced to the cashiers – whether they were covered or not in a hijab – he would belittle them,’ she told The Post.

‘He was talking good English, proper, but he would call the cashiers dumb, uneducated – how they didn’t know how to scan the items.’

She also said that Saipov  argued often about the price of Canada Dry Ginger Ale.

‘Soda was the problem. He would come here and buy soda,’ she said. ‘He would give us a hard time on the 12-pack Canada Dry – if it was one price he would want his own price. It was always the soda, always a problem with the 12-pack of cans. Always a problem.’

The ride-hailing company Uber said Sayfullo Saipov (pictured) passed its background check and drove for the service for six months, making more than 1,400 trips


From Daily Mail:

After coming out of surgery, Saipov was interviewed and has showed no remorse. One source told ABC News that he seemed ‘proud’ of what he had done, and the New York Post said he was ‘boasting’. Investigators are also interviewing his wife.

New York Post reports:

The Uzbek man who carried out an ISIS-inspired attack by mowing down tourists along a Big Apple bike path has shown no remorse — and was practically boastful about it, a senior official told NBC News.

Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, 29, remained in critical but stable condition at Bellevue Hospital on Wednesday after undergoing surgery.

A police officer shot him in the stomach after he jumped out of a rental truck holding realistic-looking pistols that turned out to be a paintball gun and a pellet gun.

He has refused to answer an initial round of questions, according to the network.

NYPD: Terrorist truck driver cased his killing field, planned bike path attack ‘for weeks’

NYC terror attack suspect planned assault for weeks, did prior reconnaissance


The Uzbekistan native accused of killing eight people in New York City had been planning his attack for weeks and did prior reconnaissance before he plowed a rented truck into pedestrians along a popular Manhattan bike path, officials revealed Wednesday.

Sayfullo Saipov, 29, was interviewed by investigators at the hospital after his surgery Wednesday, John Miller, NYPD’s Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism, said in a news conference. Miller did not reveal what was said, though reports indicated Saipov bragged about the assault and said he was “proud” of the attack. NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill would not confirm the statement.

Days before Tuesday’s assault, ISIS had been encouraging its followers to carry out Halloween attacks with propaganda from the terror group showing a graphic with a blood-splattered machete and Tuesday’s date. SITE intelligence group, which monitors terror activity online, also highlighted a recent photo taken by an ISIS supporter near the scene of Tuesday’s attack; but it remained unclear if there was a connection between that photo and the rampage.

( Daily Caller ) Media outlets and journalists are already warning of an “anti-Muslim backlash” and “Islamophobia” after an ISIS-inspired terrorist killed eight in New York.

Sayfullo Saipov killed eight people with a truck in Manhattan on Tuesday while yelling “Allahu Akbar,” and police found a note inside the truck that expressed ties to ISIS.

However, journalists are warning that the attack could lead to increased Islamophobia because people will question the terrorist’s religious motives and possibly call for stricter immigration restrictions.

MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle tweeted that Muslims “should not fear retaliation…just as my white American Dad didn’t after the brutal Las Vegas massacre,” seemingly forgetting that investigators still have not determined a motive in the Las Vegas shooting.

President Trump wants to end ‘Diversity Visa Lottery Program’  created by Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer that allowed the ISIS-inspired terrorist Sayfullo Saipov from Uzbekistan to enter US in 2010. Saipov is the first ISIS jihadist to use a truck for terrorism  in U.S. who mowed down pedestrians on Tuesday at Manhattan killing eight, more injured.

Trump’s tweets:

The NY terrorist came into our country through what is called the “Diversity Visa Lottery Program,” a Chuck Schumer beauty. I want merit based.
