Emerald Robinson was a news host for Newsmax. She was recently taken off the air for her anti-vaccine statements and then Twitter suspended her permanently.
In a statement provided to The Hill, a Twitter spokesperson confirmed that Robinson’s second suspension in one week’s time is now a permanent banning. To quote Robinson’s frequent political missives on Twitter, “RIP Emerald Robinson.”
HuffPost put it this way
Newsmax White House correspondent Emerald Robinson was permanently banned from Twitter on Tuesday for repeatedly violating its rules on COVID-19 misinformation.
Now we have to ask ourselves- what is the suspension for- misinformation or COVID misinformation?
I can’t think of a greater example of disinformation and misinformation than the Russian collusion BS and I cannot think of a greater purveyor of this poison than Adam Schiff. On The View Morgan Ortagus called out Schiff for his malignant lies:

It’s fun to watch Schiff squirm and then continue the lie. Jonathan Turley wryly observes:
Schiff surprisingly declared “First of all, whoever lied to the FBI or Christopher Steele should be prosecuted, and they are.” (It is actually not a crime to lie to Christopher Steele under 18 U.S.C. 1001. It is a crime to lie to federal investigators). It was a curious statement from someone who attacked the appointment of the Special Counsel and, with other leading Democrats, did his level best to kill the investigation. If it had been left to Schiff, there would have been no John Durham and no Durham indictments.
Schiff claimed that he personally had evidence of Russian collusion. He said it was “in plain sight” but he never produced it. The WSJ blasted Schiff over a year ago
Americans expect that politicians will lie, but sometimes the examples are so brazen that they deserve special notice. Newly released Congressional testimony shows that Adam Schiff spread falsehoods shamelessly about Russia and Donald Trump for three years even as his own committee gathered contrary evidence.
The House Intelligence Committee last week released 57 transcripts of interviews it conducted in its investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. The committee probe started in January 2017 under then-Chair Devin Nunes and concluded in March 2018 with a report finding no evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with the Kremlin. Most of the transcripts were ready for release long ago, but Mr. Schiff oddly refused to release them after he became chairman in 2019. He only released them last week when the White House threatened to do it first.
Now we know why. From the earliest days of the collusion narrative, Mr. Schiff insisted that he had evidence proving the plot. In March 2017 on MSNBC, Mr. Schiff teased that he couldn’t “go into particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now.”
In December 2017 he told CNN that collusion was a fact: “The Russians offered help, the campaign accepted help. The Russians gave help and the President made full use of that help.” In April 2018, Mr. Schiff released his response to Mr. Nunes’s report, stating that its finding of no collusion “was unsupported by the facts and the investigative record.”
KT MacFarlane properly likened Schiff to Josef Goebbels.

If spreading misinformation or disinformation is grounds for a suspension from Twitter, why hasn’t Schiff been banned? For that matter why haven’t most democrats been banned?
Twitter’s multi-tiered suspension system needs to be explained. Twitter needs Federal regulation.
