These images are impression and engagement statistics for my reply to the Tweet seen below. (LINK) On November 9, 2019, the number of people who had seen this Tweet was LOWERED from what it had been just three days earlier, on November 6, 2019.
Listed BELOW are the monthly statistics for my social media campaign on Twitter, as of March 2020. I launched my Twitter account at the end of February 2018.
Note the number of “New Followers” I gain each month. Also note when those numbers start to deviate from being statistically random.
(Note: The location of “New Followers” changes starting in February 2019.)
Something changed late in the summer of 2019. No matter what, I cannot seem to get my follower count to stay above 150 followers. Every month I have a handful of “bots” who will follow me. I know they’re bots because it’s always a young woman with a bunch of numbers in her name, and they send me a direct message saying, “Hello” or “Hi there”, or “Can we connect”.
At the end of the month, the accounts are REMOVED from Twitter in their monthly security sweeps. All of the month’s progress is wiped out, leaving me hanging at just under 150 followers.
As soon as it became CLEAR that I should report potential interference in my campaign, I took immediate action. I contacted my Representative in Congress.
On September 20, 2019, I sent the following email to my Representative, Sharice Davids:
“I am concerned the President is blocking my comments on his Tweets in violation of the 2nd Circuit ruling in July 2019. I believe he is labeling my campaign hashtag as a phrase he doesn’t want to see.
I believe the term he uses is ‘shadow banning’.
Again, I don’t have proof of who is doing this. I only have my own internal data analysis, and it suggests a firm LIMIT to the size of audience I can reach.”
Unfortunately without any PROOF of my suspicions, there was nothing she could do. Once I had PROOF that a candidate for President of the United States was being CENSORED on Twitter, I contacted the Speaker of the House.
I felt confident that my claim would be heard. As she repeatedly said… whistleblowers are “her wheelhouse”. But I am no fool. I was hopeful political affiliation would not determine who’s case is worthy of consideration when it comes to investigating crimes committed by the President.
Should party affiliation matter in a moment like this? Is removing Donald Trump from Office this fall NOT the top political priority for the Speaker? Is Joe Biden the candidate who can do that?
Would she remain SILENT if I had physical evidence that Joe Biden’s campaign was the target of this censorship?
Is it now ACCEPTABLE in the United States of America for an incumbent to SILENCE their political opposition?
… where does THAT line of questioning lead.
What candidate does Donald Trump fear the most. We’ve seen what lengths he will go to, to dig up DIRT on opponents… and not even THAT, just to arouse the suspicion of, a possibility of, some kind of INVESTIGATION into…
He was IMPEACHED for it… and he would do it again. He said so on live TV.
The candidate Donald Trump fears the most is the one with NO DIRT to be found, the candidate he has no LEVERAGE over. If there is no dirt, his only option is to label that candidate’s campaign messaging as OFFENSIVE.
‘That VILE, NASTY phrase… #EndTheElectoralCollege!’
It offends him. So it is “shadow banned”, unable to be seen by the PUBLIC. It’s MOVED from sight, hidden behind a virtual wall that says “Click HERE for more replies“… hidden away because he’s offended? Or is it because he has NO REPLY…
The President of the United States has NOTHING TO SAY in response to that phrase.
No defense. No denial. No discussion.
(ASIDE: If you want to hear a really interesting story… ask me about being BLOCKED on Facebook.)
Do you remember in the Spring of 2018, when it was reported that Donald Trump was privately discussing Constitutional Amendments with his team, and they were telling him that it was a bad idea…? I do.
That was the point in my campaign, where I knew without a doubt, that my ideas were in his circle of influence. If not him, then someone on his team. I realized that I had become an advocate. I had INFLUENCE on the decision making process of the President of the United States… and humbly, I have not forgotten it.
The best part is, every position I’ve staked out that aligns with my views, and demonstrates decisions I would make if I were in Office, they’re all POLAR OPPOSITE of everything he represents. But I do not stake these positions out simply to oppose Donald Trump… I’m just being ME.
These are the things I hold sacred… it’s all written right here.
… biased? Yes, it is an autobiography. And it is a Political Campaign, an inescapable fact. If anyone doubts my motives, I welcome your inquiries, and I would gladly answer them DIRECTLY.
I’ve sought to propose a SOLUTION to the problems highlighted by the current Administration… he is not the FIRST. His is only the most recent example of systemic issues that have existed since this nation was founded. Allowed ascent through an electoral system that declares VICTORIOUS a candidate, who LOST the vote of the people by 3 MILLION.
And Twenty years ago the vote was even closer.
And Nixon may have had justification to call for recounts in 1960 against JFK.
And on, and on, and on…
… is anyone else tired of chasing our own tail?
What IF our Presidential Primaries worked more like the NCAA Championship Tournaments… and they only lasted SEVEN MONTHS.
What IF EVERY STATE had an equal say in who should be our next President.
What IF ONE CITIZEN truly did equal ONE VOTE.
Which candidate does he truly fear facing this fall…
That should be for THE PEOPLE to decide.
I’ve shared this information with my elected representative and received NO RESPONSE. I’ve shared this information with the Speaker of the House… again, NO RESPONSE.
If a candidate believes their campaign is the target of foreign interference, they should call the FBI… what about domestic interference? In this specific instance… should I address this to the Attorney General of the United States? Would he ensure this case is expedited and brought to light BEFORE the election?
So… admittedly, I have a political stake in this. Should I surrender two years of campaign data to the investigative arm of my political opponent… in the middle of my campaign? My campaign has always been about the people. Everything I have done, I’ve done for OUR benefit.
I would want to know, before I made my decision this November, if the incumbent OR his campaign were actively SILENCING one of their opponents.
That is a fact that should not be silenced…
To be SILENT, is to be COMPLICIT.
