How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations

One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction. It’s time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents. Over the last several weeks, I worked with NBC News to publish a series of articles about “dirty trick” tactics used by GCHQ’s previously secret unit, JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group). These were based on four classified GCHQ documents presented to the NSA and the other three partners in the English-speaking “Five Eyes” alliance. Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics: (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets; and (2) to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable.

And the brainwashing commences Media Manipulation of 9/11 Truth -- Puppet Masters -- © In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously ruled for Fox News, saying no rule or law prohibits distorting or falsifying news. Just as Wall Street, war profiteers, Big Oil, Big Pharma, and other corporate favorites steal with impunity, it's OK for America's media to lie. The ruling pertained to a 1996 Jane Akre/Steve Wilson Fox affiliate WTVT, Tampa reports on bovine growth hormone (BGH) dangers, Monsanto's hazardous to human health genetically engineered milk additive. At first, the station loved them. They refused, threatened to inform the FCC, were fired, and sued. Fox appealed and won, the Appellate Court saying Acre wasn't protected under Florida's whistleblower statute, loosely interpreting it to mean employers must violate an adopted "law, rule, or regulation." In other words, Fox simply followed "policy" entitling its stations to lie - whether on product safety or falsifying facts about anything, including 9/11 truth. A personal note. A Final Comment

The 10 Most Important Theories About Why We Make War I'm very disappointed, though not surprised, at this analysis. I don't fault the author, but rather the inherent bias of the academic fields involved. Most of these items help explain how people are exploited in order to support war, but none offer the main motivation for war: the health of the state. Government is not somehow the pooling of community resources for the common good under the supervision of society's best and brightest. Politics is an arrangement by which the most ruthless and violent factions in a socio-cultural environment consolidate their power and violence to gain beneficial economic advantages. Malthusian pressure has nothing to do with war as a direct cause. And, to finish the thought, if there was true Malthusian pressure that social and technological innovation couldn't solve, then the result would be migration.

Revealed: US spy operation that manipulates social media The US military is developing software that will let it secretly manipulate social media sites by using fake online personas to influence internet conversations and spread pro-American propaganda. A Californian corporation has been awarded a contract with United States Central Command (Centcom), which oversees US armed operations in the Middle East and Central Asia, to develop what is described as an "online persona management service" that will allow one US serviceman or woman to control up to 10 separate identities based all over the world. The project has been likened by web experts to China's attempts to control and restrict free speech on the internet. Critics are likely to complain that it will allow the US military to create a false consensus in online conversations, crowd out unwelcome opinions and smother commentaries or reports that do not correspond with its own objectives. OEV is seen by senior US commanders as a vital counter-terrorism and counter-radicalisation programme.

We need to remember this, when the government starts using "terrorist" as a buzzword, to control you Newly Published Clinton Email Reveals How Government Manipulates Media Carey Wedler October 1, 2015 (ANTIMEDIA) Washington D.C. — A Hillary Clinton staffer planted questions in a CBS 60 Minutes interview with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, according to email records released this week. At the time of the interview in early 2011, Assange had already leaked sensitive, embarrassing information from the State Department. The unclassified staff email to Clinton, released amid her ongoing email scandal, demonstrates not only that the former Secretary of State and her staff were out to discredit Assange, but that the government manipulates media and wields heavy influence over it. In an email from January 28, 2011, Philip J. Crowley, then Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs, alerted Hillary Clinton that 60 Minutes conducted an interview with Assange set to air on the 30th. The 2011 interview features a younger looking Assange with interviewer Steve Kroft. Several minutes into the conversation, Kroft asks Assange point-blank if he is a “subversive.”

Neuro-enhancement in the military: far-fetched or an inevitable future? | Science About five years ago, not long after I started up my research group at Cardiff University, something rather strange happened. One morning I came down to my lab to find the door wide open and a suited man standing in the middle of the room, peering around and scribbling on a clipboard. He told me he worked for a private defence firm who were interested in applications of my research on human brain stimulation. He also said there was funding available for joint research projects. Thinking about it afterward, something about the encounter chilled me. Five years later, brain stimulation research has moved far and fast. Different forms of neurostimulation in humans have now been shown to boost our ability to learn and perform motor actions, to pay attention to events in the environment, to recall information in memory, and to exercise self-control. Most of these findings stem from two basic forms of brain stimulation. Applications like these, in turn, raise ethical questions.

Exclusive: Leftist Google Employees Conspire To Undermine Breitbart's Ad Revenue Previously, Google employees have contacted Breitbart News to reveal an atmosphere of indoctrination and intimidation, driven by leftist zealots at the company. Current and former employees at Google now tell us that those same zealots are trying to use the company’s immense power against Breitbart News. In addition to placing pressure on management to take action against the site, they are also working to undermine Breitbart’s reputation with advertisers. Breitbart News has obtained a screenshot (withheld to protect our source) that shows Google ad account manager Aidan Wilks advising another company – a client of Google’s – that advertising on Breitbart may impact their “brand safety.” In the screenshot, Wilks can be seen linking Google’s client to the website of Sleeping Giants, a far-left organization that has repeatedly targeted Breitbart and other conservative-leaning news sites with false claims of racism and bigotry. Open Letter The open letter accuses Breitbart of “hate speech”:

Following the Bodies: "We Are at the Precipice of Something So Big, It Will shake the Financial World" Editor’s Note: In the investigative report below, Douglas Hagmann of the Northeast Intelligence Network delves deep into a world that most only believe exists in the realm of cinematic thrillers. It’s one of intrigue, corruption and murder, and it involves some of the world’s most influential firms, business leaders and politicians. There are billions, if not trillions, of dollars on the line. One can chalk off the recent string of banker suicides to coincidence, but what if there were more to it? It all just seems… a bit too convenient. Exposing what lies beneath the bodies of dead bankers and what lies ahead for us By Douglas Hagmann I feel that this is one of the most important investigations I’ve ever done. If the bodies were dots on a piece of paper, connecting them results in a sinister picture being drawn that involves global criminal activity in the financial world the likes of which is almost without precedent. It is often said that life imitates art. January 11, 2014 Ms.

Top 15 Defense Budgets 2013. U.S. Military spending versus the rest of the world CNN Exposed: Emmy Winning Former CNN Journalist, Amber Lyon Blows The Whistle Source: | Original Post Date: October 7, 2012 – CNN Exposed: Emmy Winning Former CNN Journalist, Amber Lyon Blows The Whistle. Let me repeat that. CNN is paid by the US government for reporting on some events, and not reporting on others. The Obama Administration pays for CNN content. The central issue is Media Controlled by The Obama Administration, and more specifically CNN – as a VERIFIED tool for propaganda and disinformation. Within this Canadian video report you will find footage of a CNN story on Egypt and Mohammed Al Zawahiri. In the previous thread I asked two central questions. Why would CNN [or CNNi] refuse to air the Nick Robertson report with Muhammed Al Zawahiri (brother of Ayman Al Zawahiri) that clearly shows the Egyptian uprising was 100% in response to his call for protests for release of the Blind sheik on 9-11.? Amber Lyon provides the answer(s). Apparently they have a history of this no-one knew about. Let me repeat that. Let that sink in.
