The State Dept Behind Twitter, Google, Facebook, YouTube Content Control And Censoring Mechanisms Insiders Prove

… He still hasn’t identified the source code, the proverbial ghost in the machine, buried deep in the algorithmic code; however, Twitter owner Elon Musk has finally identified the agency within the U.S. government who spearheaded the creation.  The “Global Engagement Center” (GEC) of the State Dept.

The GEC mission is described as, “To direct, lead, synchronize, integrate, and coordinate U.S. Federal Government efforts to recognize, understand, expose, and counter foreign state and non-state propaganda and disinformation efforts aimed at undermining or influencing the policies, security, or stability of the United States, its allies, and partner nations,” (link).   However, when you overlay the expanded Dept of State mission that Obama delivered, transferring GEC intent to domestic operations, suddenly the background of Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop makes sense.  [Musk Tweet Link]

Readers here are so far ahead of the curve on this story, it’s kind of cool, funny, and yet frustrating at the same time.  Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop is all a wild conspiracy theory born from the oddly wired brain of some dude in the corner of the internet; until suddenly it’s not.

Factually, it has been staring at everyone since the operation began in 2011, yet no one was willing to believe it.  Apparently, Elon Musk is starting to realize what is inside the communication platform he purchased.

For several years, CTH has been outlining the relationship between DHS and social media.  Currently, the headlines are filled with stories about Twitter and revelations of censorship and government influence coming from the purchase of the platform by Elon Musk.  However, as I said from the outset of this new moment, I promise you things are not what they seem.


As noted earlier, and it is worth repeating, let me put some context to the dynamic that will hopefully clarify what is going on, and perhaps the context will help explain what you are seeing and what you are not seeing as this unfolds.  There are going to be a lot of citations to fill in the details, and understanding the modern Fourth Branch of Government is critical.  The bigger picture also explains why SSCI Chairman Mark Warner said “people will die” if the seized Trump Mar-a-Lago documents become public.

♦ Elevator Speech: Twitter is to the U.S. government as TikTok is to China. The overarching dynamic is the need to control public perceptions and opinions. DHS has been in ever increasing control of Twitter since the public-private partnership was formed in 2011/2012.  Jack Dorsey lost control and became owner emeritus; arguably, Elon Musk had no idea (you’ll see proof toward the end).

To explain the background activity of Twitter in a way that readers could understand, I used the metaphor of Twitter as Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop.

…”The metaphorical Jack had a great idea, open a coffee shop where the beverages were free and use internal advertising as the income subsidy to operate the business.  Crowds came for the free coffee, comfy couches, fellowship, conversation and enjoyment.

It didn’t matter where Jack got the coffee, how he paid for it, or didn’t, or what product advertising the customers would be exposed to while there.  Few people thought about such things.  Curiously, it didn’t matter what size the crowd was; in the backroom of Jack’s Coffee Shop they were able to generate massive amounts of never-ending free coffee at extreme scales.

Over time, using the justification of parking lot capacity and township regulations, not everyone would be able to park and enter.  Guards were placed at the entrance to pre-screen customers.  Some were denied.  A debate began.”…

Here’s what happened….

In/around 2011 and 2012 the U.S. Government, Obama administration and the U.S. State Dept., came into Jack’s Coffee Shop and asked him for help.

The govt officials needed to deliver massive amounts of coffee to their allies in Egypt, Libya and the middle east to support the Arab Spring party.  Jack told the officials he was willing to help but didn’t have the capacity to deliver on that scale.  The officials told Jack not to worry, they would handle that aspect – he just needed to agree to the partnership and let them utilize his business.  Jack agreed.

[Note, the timing here is not accidental.  The operational agreement happened at the same time DHS was fine tuning the domestic surveillance systems to monitor social media platforms and target political opposition. See The Fourth Branch.]

Over the next several weeks, months and eventually years, Jack watched as hundreds of new employees flooded into the business to facilitate the rapid expansion.  Along with a myriad of new faces, new equipment was delivered, and soon Jack found himself looking at heavy industrial equipment erecting large buildings in the back lots of the property.  Coffee urns were replaced with massive industrial coffee delivery systems that far exceeded anything Jack ever imagined.

Business was booming, but slowly Jack realized he had lost control.  Jack was riding a dragon.

As the years progressed, thousands of new employees moved into the offices of the new buildings and massive pipelines were producing incredible scales of coffee.  Jack noted offices of the United Nations Human Rights Commission were now creating unique blends of coffee for international distribution, and the European Commission had an entire suite of specially trained coffee production engineers creating alternate combinations and flavors.

By 2018, Jack had essentially become an “owner emeritus”; his name was on the shingle, but the day-to-day operation of Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop had turned into an industrial park complex.

Jack saw his personal wealth attached to the success of the business, but operationally, his only responsibility was traveling to symposiums and venues where he would stand on stage and wax philosophically about the future of a coffee delivery organization he no longer controlled.  Day-to-day operations were now controlled by experts in the scale of massive industrial coffee.  Those experts came from the Dept of Homeland Security.

[The Intercept] – […] Behind closed doors, and through pressure on private platforms, the U.S. government has used its power to try to shape online discourse. According to meeting minutes and other records appended to a lawsuit filed by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, a Republican who is also running for Senate, discussions have ranged from the scale and scope of government intervention in online discourse to the mechanics of streamlining takedown requests for false or intentionally misleading information.

“Platforms have got to get comfortable with gov’t. It’s really interesting how hesitant they remain,” Microsoft executive Matt Masterson, a former DHS official, texted Jen Easterly, a DHS director, in February.

In a March meeting, Laura Dehmlow, an FBI official, warned that the threat of subversive information on social media could undermine support for the U.S. government. Dehmlow, according to notes of the discussion attended by senior executives from Twitter and JPMorgan Chase, stressed that “we need a media infrastructure that is held accountable.” (read more)

o streamline the operational efficiencies as the industrial coffee system grew, direct portals between the Washington DC government offices and Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop were created.  Officials no longer needed to travel to the location of Jack’s Coffee Shop in order to operate the valves, mixers, grinders and systems to generate the scale of blends being produced.

Experts could now use direct portals to the facility to operate the coffee production systems remotely, with a limited number of specially trained (FBI) coffee engineers doing the laborious tasks and maintenance at the facility.

The badges were intimidating to Jack who went to sleep every night under the realization he no longer had any clue about how the coffee shop communication business was operating.

[…]  The extent to which the DHS initiatives affect Americans’ daily social feeds is unclear. During the 2020 election, the government flagged numerous posts as suspicious, many of which were then taken down, documents cited in the Missouri attorney general’s lawsuit disclosed. And a 2021 report by the Election Integrity Partnership at Stanford University found that of nearly 4,800 flagged items, technology platforms took action on 35 percent — either removing, labeling, or soft-blocking speech, meaning the users were only able to view content after bypassing a warning screen. The research was done “in consultation with CISA,” the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

Prior to the 2020 election, tech companies including Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Discord, Wikipedia, Microsoft, LinkedIn, and Verizon Media met on a monthly basis with the FBI, CISA, and other government representatives. According to NBC News, the meetings were part of an initiative, still ongoing, between the private sector and government to discuss how firms would handle misinformation during the election. (keep reading)

After several years of increasing distance from the Coffee Shop operation he initially started, eventually Jack decided it was silly to own an industrial coffee delivery system that he didn’t control.  So, Jack decided to sell his shingle to someone else.

Enter, Elon Musk.

Billionaire Elon Musk, a man intimately familiar with large industrial systems and government, had been watching the disgruntled visitors to Jack’s Coffee Shop who were no longer permitted to enter.  Musk saw an inequity between the amount of coffee that was available, and the scarcity of the coffee amid a community blacklisted by the operational executives and managers of the shop.

With expressions of both interest and fellowship, Mr. Elon Musk told Mr. Jack Dorsey he would take ownership of Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop and remove any discriminatory guards that were now controlling permitted entry.  Jack had no aversion to Elon and eventually a deal was brokered.

After the transfer of sale was complete, Mr. Musk fired many of the guards and then set about checking the payroll to identify which group of shop employees were actually involved in the generation of coffee, and which employees were involved in promotion of the industrial coffee delivery system that were no longer needed.

Within this process, Elon Musk begins to discover the complex nature of what, at least at the surface, appeared to be an uncomplicated coffee shop.  Why is there a 500-room glass walled office building on the backside of the coffee shop?  What is going on in that GEC building that has anything to do with selling domestic coffee?

The sunlight revelations began surfacing a few months ago when someone of reasonably intelligent curiosity finally asked Elon Musk the right question about this direct portal from DHS into the coffee shop. How Mr. Musk replied might surprise you.

You see, the Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop metaphor is evidenced in the Musk response.

Twitter owner Elon Musk has no idea that a DHS portal into the coffee shop existed and what it would be for.  WATCH:


To put it in brutally honest terms, the State Dept initially created the partnership between the U.S. government and Twitter (Arab Spring).  However, when the operations needed to become domestically centered (post Trump election), another agency stepped in…. The United States Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) is the operating system running in the background of Twitter.

You can debate whether Elon Musk honestly didn’t know all this before purchasing Twitter from his good friend Jack Dorsey, and/or what the scenario of owner/operator motive actually is.  Decide for yourself, but with public statements it genuinely looks like Musk didn’t know.

Regardless of foreknowledge, I feel confident the conflicting and odd datapoints only reconcile in one direction.  The State Dept started it, but now DHS, via CISA, controls Twitter.

Wittingly or unwittingly (you decide) Elon Musk is now the face of a quasi govt controlled enterprise.

If you concur with my researched assessment, then what you see being released by Elon Musk in the Twitter Files is actually a filtered outcome as a result of this new ownership dynamic.

Put simply, DHS stakeholders, to include the DOJ, FBI and Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), are mitigating any consequential public exposure of their domestic surveillance activity by controlling and feeding Mr. Musk selected information about their prior Twitter operations.  DHS is still the ghost in the machine.

TikTok is to Beijing as Twitter is to Washington DC.

The larger objective of U.S. involvement in social media has always been monitoring and surveillance of the public conversation, and then ultimately controlling and influencing public opinion.

Mr. Elon Musk and his team are combing through millions of lines of algorithmic code, trying to find that “fundamental part” that will deliver their own ‘ah-ha’ moment.  Until then, we keep watching and smiling…

I’m not saying that Elon musk is one of the good guys or not. He’s a businessman, very successful one at that. I’m sure he loves capitalism and the almighty dollar. Elon is riding the proverbial dragon as Sundance has pointed out. He has to expose the depravity to keep the dragon fed. Now. Note that the Chinese already have there digital currency, the Chinese have “weechat” their social media platform that they use to facilitate the use of the Yuan. Elon just spent 44 billion dollars to be able to facilitate what’s coming in the US.
Now you know, the rest of the story.

Special Envoy and Coordinator for the U.S. Department of State’s Global Engagement Center. Sunlight needs to be shined into every corner of this operatives life. He appears to be a true “believer” and “kool-ade” drinker. “Hey, jimmie…tell us all about twitter!”

Elon may not be comfortable with government censorship, but he is very comfortable with government partnership, especially when it provides the horsepower his enterprise needs. If Twitter is to grow into an “everything app” like WeChat it will need a financial (payment) services feature suite. Elon knows how to build that, think Paypal. Now think about the coming CBDC and you’ll see where this might go. God help us all in these trying times.

February 7, 2023 11:49 am

The State Department. It’s worth looking at who was overseeing said department during the last 3 administrations. Explains a lot & raises many more questions. ? I hate this game. I want my country back. In any event, thanks for the info, Sundance. The bureaucrats are in charge.

We have become huge Elon fans and by that I mean that we watch a lot of videos about SpaceX, Tesla, Boxabl and Neurolink – anything and everything that he has done/is doing. We think that he shares some common traits with us and President Trump in that he loves humanity and wants to do good in the world and is basically very honest. People like us could not imagine the depths of the evil coming against America and Western Civilization. I will see comments about President Trump not doing this or that in particular while in office and I want to scream Do you remember what it was like? Precious few real allies and the whole 4th Branch (which we knew next to nothing about at the time) arrayed against him. We personally think that Elon faced a similar situation taking over Twitter. Yes, he knew there were serious problems but I doubt he had much of a clue just how deep the issues run.

I just got my Twitter account back. I was suspended in the week after Jan 6th along with probably thousands of other accounts of 5-10k. Husband got by with just a couple thousand followers. I don’t think my tweets are very visible now but I am waiting and watching and praying that Elon will stand strong and continue working towards having a real open platform. It’s a Herculean task in today’s world.

For me the jury is still out w Elon. On the one hand I respect his willingness to stand up for a more open Twitter. At first I thought it was awesome bravery, almost akin to President Trump. Then I began to wonder why Elon has not yet been buried under DOJ and lawfare attacks like President Trump. Yes he’s gotten some unwanted attention, but given all the Twitter dumps recently, why has he been mostly left alone? So my sense of respect for his free speech efforts is bumping up against Suspicious Cat.

Outside of Twitter, I’m greatly concerned by Elon Musk’s current work with Neurolink and his enthusiastic embracing of transhumanism (chipped humans, linked into an AI/Cloud, part-human/part-machine). Transhumanism is not a path that will work out well for free-loving, God-created humans.

Elon’s Neurolink activity and transhumanism views probably fly under the radar for most as it is not getting much atttention outside Bannon’s War Room.

Those like Elon who embrace transhumanism believe the human race will benefit from an upgrade into a sort of super human by blending the human body with computers and the power of artificial intelligence. I suspect though that transhumanism will change who we are on the inside. I believe our personality and every part of who we are as natural born humans will be warped, even dissolved by becoming a part-AI/computer hybrid. And not to go to far over the edge, the thought does cross my mind that anything digital, even a part-digital human might be hackable or programmable at some point down the road.

Dorsey made it very easy for the government to take over Twitter and I do not believe the reason is complicated!

The money was irresistible but, did he step down as CEO when the censorship got more and more extreme or did he feel his job was done once Biden got elected.

What’s astounding is how blind the left is regarding the dangers of censorship.
Currently it’s okay because all the censoring benefits their narrative, but the cost has been huge!

The more information people garner the more people realize they have to filter and then formulate
their views, reactions to it.

All these super tech supposed geniuses are a bunch of treasonous wannabes.
The government bought them all and is now spitting them out!

I bet the left elites turn on them all, now that their limited usefulness has diminished.

Dorsey is a despicable, weasel that sold out our country.

Once he got in bed with the government any ethics or morals he had were wiped out!

“Twitter owner Elon Musk has no idea that a DHS portal into the coffee shop”

If I remember correctly, back in late 90’s/2000, I believe after either the Cole or Iowa incidents, the government demanded back door portals into, I don’t know, maybe Linux?? ..Solaris??software, allowing access into the private businesses using them. Imagine what you could do with that kind of information!

All for the children, of course.

Musk is not stupid. He knows what is behind the curtain. If you suspect the worst, you are right. It is relatively easy to figure out who at Twitter was collaborating with the Deep State and what their backgrounds are which would be a huge tip off to who within the government is pulling the strings. No, they are not associated with MAGA and maybe not even the US; at least not all of them.
