House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH) posted the entire text of an explosive New York Post story about Hunter and Joe Biden on his congressional website on Thursday, after Twitter censored a link to the House Judiciary GOP’s website where the story text was also posted.

The House Judiciary GOP account tweeted, along with a link to Jordan’s website: “Twitter censored our last link! So, we put the article on @Jim_Jordan‘s website. Nice try, @jack. But, we won’t stop. Click, share, and RT!”

By approximately Thursday 9:35 a.m. ET, clicking on the link to Jordan’s website did not trigger a warning from Twitter.

The move came after Twitter added a warning before allowing people to access the story text posted on the House Judiciary GOP’s website.

The warning said:

Warning: this link may be unsafe.

Twitter also used the same warning for the Post‘s follow-up story on Thursday about Hunter Biden making a lucrative deal with a Chinese firm that benefitted his family.

Twitter also on Thursday began taking action against accounts for posting photos of Hunter Biden that were published by the Post.

Left-wing Hollywood actress Bette Midler was mercilessly mocked after she called First Lady Melania Trump an “illegal immigrant” and mocked her accent after Trump delivered an address during the second night of the Republican National Convention.

As Trump began her address, Bette Midler tweeted: “#beBest is back! A UGE bore! She can speak several words in a few languages. Get that illegal alien off the stage!”

Minutes later, she tweeted: “Oh, God. She still can’t speak English.”

Midler’s xenophobic tweets about Trump sparked a backlash from the right — and the left, from many who pointed out that Melania Trump actually speaks five languages and English is not her first language.

Conservative media personality Allie Beth Stuckey tweeted: “Called it. The same people who call Trump a racist.”

Radio host Dana Loesch noted that Midler could only speak one language: “Xenophobe who speaks one language mocks immigrant who can speak five.”

Journalist Ryan Saavedra tweeted the five languages that Trump is fluent in, including: her native language of Slovenian, English, French, Serbian, and German.

Veteran actor James Woods pointed out the hypocrisy of the Democrat Party: “The party of diversity mocks an American for her accent…”

Conservative politico Benny Johnson also noted that hypocrisy: “Amazing that open racism exists in the Democratic Party but NO ONE in their party calls it out.”

Red State Editor Brandon Morse contrasted Trump’s message of “hope and positivity” and Midler’s comment. He tweeted: “An immigrant woman, who doesn’t have English as her first language, just got up on on a stage and was so gracious that she refused to attack classless people like you and instead focused on hope and positivity. I’ll take her accent over your ghoulishness any day.”

Music video director Robby Starbuck mirrored Midler’s own comment in a mocking tweet: “Oh God. Bette’s still a horrible bigot.”

Asian-American entrepreneur Lisa Song Sutton tweeted: “My Mother and many immigrants to this country have an accent due to English being their second, third, fourth language… @BetteMidler = xenophobe.”

Conservative host Jason Rantz called out Hollywood’s silence on Midler’s tweet: “When did @BetteMidler become such a virulent racist and why is woke Hollywood cool with this? Because she’s washed up and stuck on crappy Netflix shows? How’s this an acceptable criticism of Melania? So disgusting. @FLOTUS gave a great speech.”

Conservative African author Obianuju Ekeocha recalled when she once admired Midler, tweeting that today she sees her “ruthless xenophobia.” “I’m disgusted & ashamed.”

Actor Nick Searcy, tweeted: “Hollywood leftists are hateful bigots.”

British talk show host Piers Morgan also mocked Midler’s tweet: “Oh, God. Bette Midler’s a racist.”

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer also stuck up for Trump:

And a number of other prominent conservative figures slammed Midler as well on Wednesday morning:

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) suggested Thursday during an exclusive interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily that Google’s suppression of political news critical of Joe Biden and Democrats on its search engine is election interference.

Asked by host Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow if he believed Google’s suppression amounted to “election interference,” Cotton responded:

Why else would Google be suppressing a conservative news site or suppressing news about Joe Biden? I mean they’re not suppressing news about the Chicago Bears. They’re not suppressing news about the weather. They’re suppressing political news that’s critical of the Democrats. What else do you think it is?

He also said there appears to be a “systematic effort” to remove or at least rank substantially lower Breitbart News’s coverage of Joe Biden, and called it “especially troubling”in the leadup to an election:

All this is troubling under any circumstances, it’s especially troubling as we lead up to an election season to see one of the huge monopoly search engines in this country manipulate search results by all appearances to favor the Democratic Party. I’ve asked the Justice Department to look into this, to expand their anti-trust probe into it, and I hope they do just that.

Cotton revealed last week to Breitbart News that he has written to Attorney General Bill Barr and Google CEO Sundar Pichai about Google’s censoring of Breitbart News and other conservative outlets.

His letter came after Breitbart News’s Allum Bokhari exclusively reported data showing Google has suppressed Breitbart News articles from its search engine results since 2016 by 99.7 percent.

“I think the censoring of Breitbart and other conservative news sites by Google is very alarming. That’s why I’ve written to Sundai Pichar about it. I’ve also asked the Attorney General to look into it and expand their anti-trust probe into Google,” Cotton said.

“Google has the monopoly of power in the search market. Google cannot use that monopoly power to then try to get a monopoly to harm competitors in other markets as well, like say the digital advertising market. That is almost a per se violation of our anti-trust laws,” he said.

“That’s why the Department of Justice has begun this probe and some state attorneys general are following on. I would encourage them to expand or look into this issue, too,” he said.

Cotton said that it seemed that Big Tech’s censorship — even if allegedly accidental — is always of conservatives.

When was the last time you heard Talking Points Memo or DailyKos or MSNBC having a story or an article or video censored? ‘Oh we’re sorry,’ they say at Google. ‘We’re sorry,’ they say at YouTube, ‘That was just an inadvertent mistake. Our algorithm screwed up. We didn’t mean to censor Rachel Maddow, we’ll put it back up.’

It never happens. It never happens. It always seems to happen that their accidents and their slip-ups are designed to censor conservatives.

He said that while legislation could be a long-term answer, only the Justice Department has the power to act quickly before the election.

“That’s why I’ve asked them to promptly expand their anti-trust probe to look into exactly what Google is doing and to ensure that this is an issue that is front and center for the American people,” he said.

“Not just that they know that the news that they’re seeing on Google may be skewed, but also so they appreciate the danger of giving some of these giant tech companies the power to determine what we read and what we see.”

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA)’s campaign press secretary suggested Russia was behind Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) after she landed an effective blow on Harris’ record as a prosecutor during the Democrat debates on Wednesday night.

Her press secretary, Ian Sams, tweeted shortly after the attack an NBC News article from February 2019 claiming the “Russian propaganda machine” was promoting Gabbard:

“Reporters writing their stories with eyes on the modern-day assignment desk of Twitter, read this: ‘The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat,’” he tweeted. He later retweeted his tweet.

The NBC News article from February 2019 cites, “several experts who track websites and social media linked to the Kremlin” who have seen “what they believe may be the first stirrings of an upcoming Russian campaign of support for Gabbard.” Among the experts are analysts from New Knowledge, which ran a Russian-like disinformation campaign against Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Sams’ attacks came after Gabbard pointed out Harris prosecuted more than 1,500 people for marijuana violations after she became California attorney general in 2010, but earlier this year laughed about smoking it during an interview with the Breakfast Club radio show.

“Senator Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor, and that she’ll be a prosecutor president, but I’m deeply concerned about this record. There are too many examples to cite, but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana,” Gabbard said, to loud applause.

“She blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so,” Gabbard continued. “She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California and she fought to keep the cash-bail system in place. That impacts people in the worst kind of way.”

Instead of addressing those attacks, Sams blasted Gabbard on her meeting with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in 2017 to discuss an end to the civil war in Syria, where U.S. troops were deployed.

“Yo, you love Assad,” he tweeted first.

He continued attacking Gabbard, calling her a “friend” of Assad, and then an “apologist” for Assad.

Harris, in the spin room afterwards, took up the line Gabbard was an Assad “apologist” — also not addressing the substance of Gabbard’s criticism.

“This is going to sound immodest but I’m obviously a top-tier candidate. And so I did expect that I would be on the stage and take hits tonight,” Harris said.

“I think that this coming from someone who has been an apologist for an individual, Assad, who has murdered the people of his country like cockroaches, she who has embraced and been an apologist for him in a way that she refuses to call him a war criminal, I can only take what she says and her opinion so seriously. And so, you know, I’m prepared to move on,” she said.
