Election Meddling Enters Bizarro World As MSM Ignores Democrat-Linked
Meddling Enters Bizarro World As MSM Ignores Democrat-Linked
For over two years now, the concepts of "Russian collusion" and
"Russian election meddling" have been shoved down our throats by the
mainstream media (MSM) under the guise of legitimate concern that the
Kremlin may have installed a puppet president in Donald
Having no evidence of collusion aside from a largely
unverified opposition-research dossier fabricated by a former
British spy, the focus shifted from "collusion" to "meddling" and
"influence." In other words, maybe Trump didn't actually collude with
Putin, but the Kremlin used Russian tricks to influence the
election in Trump's favor.
To some, this looked like nothing more than an establishment scheme to
cast a permanent spectre of doubt over the legitimacy of President
Donald J. Trump.
Election meddling "Russian bots" and "troll farms" became
the central focus - as claims were levied of social media
operations conducted by Kremlin-linked organizations which sought to influence and
divide certain segments of America.
And while scant evidence of a Russian influence
operation exists outside of a handful of indictments connected to a
St. Petersburg "Troll farm" (which a liberal journalist cast
serious doubt over), the MSM - with all of their
proselytizing over the "threat to democracy" that election meddling
poses, has largely decided to ignore actual evidence
of "Russian bots" created by Democrat IT experts, used against a GOP
candidate in the Alabama special election, and amplified
through the Russian bot-detecting "Hamilton 68"
dashboard developed by the same IT experts.
Democratic operative Jonathon Morgan - bankrolled by LinkedIn founder
Reid Hoffman, pulled a Russian bot "false flag" operation against GOP
candidate Roy Moore in the Alabama special election last year - creating
thousands of fake social media accounts designed to influence
voters. Hoffman has since apologized, while Morgan was
suspended by Facebook for "coordinated inauthentic" behavior.
As Russian state-owned RT puts
it - and who could blame them for being a bit pissed over the whole
thing, "it turns out there really was meddling in American democracy
by “Russian bots.” Except they weren’t run
from Moscow or St. Petersburg, but from the offices of Democrat
operatives chiefly responsible for creating and amplifying the “Russiagate” hysteria
over the past two years in a textbook case of psychological
A week before Christmas, the Senate Intelligence Committee released a
report accusing Russia of depressing Democrat voter turnout by
targeting African-Americans on social media. Its authors, New
Knowledge, quickly became a household name.
Described by the New York Times as
a group of “tech specialists who lean Democratic,” New
Knowledge has ties to both the US military and intelligence agencies.
Its CEO and co-founder Jonathon Morgan previously worked for
DARPA, the US military's advanced research agency. His
partner, Ryan Fox, is a 15-year veteran of the National Security
Agency who also worked as a computer analyst for the Joint Special
Operations Command (JSOC). Their unique skill sets have managed to
attract the eye of investors, who pumped $11 million into the company
in 2018 alone.
On December 19, a New York Times story revealed that Morgan
and his crew had created a fake army of Russian bots, as
well as fake Facebook groups, in order to discredit Republican
candidate Roy Moore in Alabama's 2017 special election for the US
Working on behalf of the Democrats, Morgan and his crew
created an estimated 1,000 fake Twitter accounts with Russian names,
and had them follow Moore. They also operated several
Facebook pages where they posed as Alabama conservatives who wanted
like-minded voters to support a write-in candidate instead.
In an internal memo, New Knowledge boasted that it had
“orchestrated an elaborate 'false flag' operation that planted the
idea that the Moore campaign was amplified on social media by a
It worked. The botnet claim made a splash on social media and was
further amplified by Mother Jones, which based its story on expert
opinion from Morgan's other dubious creation, Hamilton 68. -RT
Moore ended up losing the Alabama special election by a slim margin of
In other words: In November 2017 – when Moore and his
Democratic opponent were in a bitter fight to win over voters –
Morgan openly promoted the theory that Russian bots were supporting
Moore’s campaign. A year later – after being
caught red-handed orchestrating a self-described “false
flag” operation – Morgan now says that his team never
thought that the bots were Russian and have no idea what their
purpose was. Did he think no one would notice? -RT
Even more strange is that Scott Shane - the journalist
who wrote the New York Times piece exposing the
Alabama "Russian bot" scheme, knew about it for monthsafter
speaking at an event where the organizers bragged about
the false flag on Moore.
Shane was one of the speakers at a meeting in September, organized by
American Engagement Technologies, a group run by Mikey Dickerson,
President Barack Obama’s former tech czar. Dickerson explained how AET
spent $100,000 on New Knowledge’s campaign to suppress Republican
votes, “enrage” Democrats to boost turnout, and execute
a “false flag” to hrt Moore. He dubbed it “Project
Shane told BuzzFeed that he was "shocked" by the
revelations, though hid behind a nondisclosure agreement at the request
of American Engagement Technologies (AET). He instead chose to spin the
New Knowledge "false flag" operation on Moore as "limited Russian
tactics" which were part of an "experiment" that had a budget of "only"
$100,000 - and which had no effect on the election.
New Knowledge suggested that the false flag operation was simply a
"research project," which Morgan suggested was designed "to better
understand and report on the tactics and effects of social media
While the New York Times seemed satisfied with his explanation,
others pointed out that Morgan had used the Hamilton 68 dashboard to
give his “false flag” more credibility – misleading
the public about a “Russian” influence campaign
that he knew was fake.
New Knowledge’s protestations apparently didn't convince Facebook,
last week that five accounts linked to New Knowledge –
including Morgan's – had been suspended for engaging in “coordinated
inauthentic behavior.” -RT
They knew exactly what they were doing
While Morgan and New Knowledge sought to frame the "Project Birmingham"
as a simple research project, a leaked copy of the
operation's after-action report reveals that they knew exactly what
they were doing.
"We targeted 650,000 like AL voters, with a combination of persona
accounts, astroturfing, automated social media amplification and
targeted advertising," reads the report published by entrepreneur and
executive coach Jeff Giesea.
BREAKING: Here's the after-action
report from the AL Senate disinfo campaign.
The rhetorical question remains, why did the MSM drop
this election meddling story like a hot rock after the initial
headlines faded away?
