With the elections coming up, it is extremely important for Republicans and Conservatives blogging on the Internet to remember that the Internet has been infiltrated by our government and leftist agents who are out to destroy Republicans. What once was thought to be the stuff of conspiracy theorists has been proven to not be the case. The government is actively infusing propaganda and lies onto the Internet to further their agenda.
In July 2011, we posted the story of Cass Sunstein and his plan to “nudge” opponents on the Internet for the sake of the common good as to be determined by him and like-minded people. His plan was clearly unethical and an egregious violation of Internet freedom.
Sunstein’s “nudge” theory is called “libertarian paternalism.” In 2008, while at Harvard Law School, Salon.com reported that Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government – and other leftist groups – employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-”independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups, social media, chat rooms, real-space groups, and websites which advocate views that Sunstein deems “false conspiracy theories” about the Government.
This “nudging” would be designed to increase citizens’ faith in government officials and undermine the credibility of conspiracists.
Most of us call that propaganda. At the time, when conservatives balked, they were called conspiracy theorists. Since then, we found out it is actually happening.
Sunstein was appointed by President Obama to the NSA panel to shape them up after their spying was disclosed. Obviously, Mr. Obama was not serious about shaping up the NSA.
In early March of this year, Glenn Greenwald exposed a joint operation of Internet spying by the NSA and their UK equivalent – GCHQ. The joint operation – JTRIG – did more than simply spy and collect, they injected and influenced with lies and manipulation. This information was made available by Edward Snowden.
The entire purpose of the JTRIG, according to the JTRIG, is to, among other nefarious operations, inject false material onto the Internet to destroy the reputation of targets and “to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes” they consider desirable.
They use “false flag operations” (posting material to the Internet and falsely attributing it to someone else), fake victim blog posts (pretending to be a victim of the person they hope to destroy), and post “negative information” on various forums.
Glenn Greenwald is a liberal UK journalist who published the NSA documents pilfered by Edward Snowden. He is now reporting on these documents on his new website, First Look.
Greenwald worked with NBC News on a series of articles about “dirty trick tactics” used by GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) on the Internet.
GCHQ trained the NSA on these tactics and worked with them on a special team known as The Joint Intelligence Threat Research Group (JTRIG).
Listen to Cass Sunstein, an Obama czar, speak about hunting, animal slavery, animal genocide, the Second Amendment, remembering he is the man Obama appointed to the NSA panel. He’s no friend to freedom.
Sunstein is married to Samantha Power, the UN Ambassador who carries a big mouth and no stick.
These are the extremists governing our country, the people who are fundamentally transforming us. Conservatives and Republicans aren’t the extremists, people like Barack Obama and Cass Sunstein are.
Sen. Ed Markey of Boston and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York have proposed the one-page 2014 Hate Crime Reporting Act. According to a release from Markey’s office, the act “would create an updated comprehensive report examining the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation and create recommendations to address such crimes.” This Reporting Act will order the Department of Justice to scour the Internet, television and radio for sites or shows that encourage quote-unquote violent acts and hate crimes.
The fact that this act is being brought up in both the House and the Senate at the same time suggests coordination and desire to ram it through though it seems to be going nowhere for the time being. If it isn’t rammed through, Obama can always resort to his pen and phone.
These people have few ethical limitations if any. They go onto blogs, lying, voicing opinions that often bait opponents. They might be posing as Republicans angry with Karl Rove or Ted Cruz. They could be spreading rumors and we all know that rumors become truth very quickly.
Before you get caught up in a rant against some Republican, do your research. The Internet is now a playground for liars and manipulators.
