The latest bombshell from the Twitter Files is in: the head of Twitter’s Strategic Response Team, Jeff Carlton, who was responsible for censoring top conservative spokespeople like Charlie Kirk, Dan Bongino, and “Libs of TikTok” was a CIA analyst before joining Twitter.
Who is Jeff Carlton?
Carlton joined Twitter in May 2021 as a senior project manager before being promoted to the head of Twitter’s Strategic Response Team (SRT). SRT is tasked with “limit[ing] the reach of certain users,” and, as one team member describes SRT’s role, “resolving the highest-profile Trust & Safety escalations,” as well as managing “crises and non-standard incidents in content moderation and customer support to promote ‘healthy public conversations.”

According to Twitter’s Trust and Safety Council, content that would violate Twitter’s “Trust and Safety” standards include “Online Safety and Harassment,” “Human and Digital Rights,” “Child and Sexual Exploitation,” and “Suicide Prevention and Mental Health.” Twitter’s SRT, led by Carlton, labeled Charlie Kirk, Dan Bongino, Jay Bhattacharya, and other “anti-woke/establishment” spokespeople's pages on various blacklists, which is reserved for content from accounts violating "Trust and Safety" standards. In many cases, these blacklists have censored conservative content on the same scale as child pornography.
It comes as no surprise that the person leading the witch hunt against conservative content creators had a long career in the intelligence establishment. According to a Mint News report, Carlton served as a Marine Corps intelligence officer beginning in 2014 all the way up to 2021 when he joined Twitter.
Most notably, between 2014-2017, Carlton was an intelligence analyst for the FBI and CIA. Baker worked for the CIA and FBI between 2014-2017 and “authored dozens of official reports, some of which were read by President Barack Obama." According to Andy Ngo, the award-winning journalist who rose to notoriety for exposing ANTIFA's violence during the "Summer of Love" in 2020, Carlton has since deleted his LinkedIn account and changed his name to a fake alias since the "Twitter Files" bombshell.

What is the big picture?
Is it any wonder why conservatives have felt “gaslit” for so many years? As Glenn continues to expose the depths of the FBI and CIA’s corruption, from interfering in global elections to their explicitly-stated war against the 2020 Trump campaign, it comes as no surprise that Twitter's censorship against conservatives is largely driven by people deeply connected to agencies that are overtly animus towards our values and beliefs.
As we continue to hear more stories about the blatant censorship against conservatives on social media giants like Twitter, it's important that we put these stories in their proper context. Big tech has made its bed with the deep state, whose self-proclaimed goal is to restructure the world order into their leftist utopia brought under centralized government control. This vision, aptly called the "Great Reset," was cast by globalist elites during the 2020 World Economic Forum, taking advantage of the social instability brought about by COVID to bring about their vision — a power dynamic that Marx himself could only dream of. Is it any surprise that the deep state would use its mistress to silence any opposition?

This is only the tip of the iceberg connected to the unholy affair between Big Tech and the deep state. Buckle up.
