This is the first of a series of articles outlining for the public the Information Operation being used against the American people in this 2020 election season, and beyond, to change beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors which will lead to the Deep State’s dream — a socialist America, controlled by elite oligarchs and corporations.
Many of us have wondered aloud as to why the corporate media, big-tech generated social media, and once-trusted American companies have all been strategically aligned to the Democrat/Chinese Communist Party/Deep State agenda. It’s been obvious for some time now that something is very wrong in our beautiful country that most of us love dearly.
Well, as we have reported before, and will continue to report, there is a reason for this phenomenon — the American defense industrial complex has been weaponized against us. The corporate media is its propaganda delivery service, and big-tech social media is its censor.
One example stands out in particular for the brazen, open, public admission of its tactics.
The story of DefeatDisinfo.org and Stanley McChrystal’s involvement has been widely reported in the press, but most Americans still do not realize what is going on right in front of them as we head into November. The Washington Post first reported on the development in May, highlighting the fact that McChrystal, a former U.S. Army theater commander in Afghanistan, was using psychological and information tools initially developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and used extensively against our enemies, against the American people, specifically Trump supporters.
A new Democratic-aligned political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former head of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, is planning to deploy technology originally developed to counter Islamic State propaganda in service of a domestic political goal — to combat online efforts to promote President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, wrote The Washington Post.
The group, Defeat Disinfo, will use artificial intelligence and network analysis to map discussion of the president’s claims on social media. It will seek to intervene by identifying the most popular counter-narratives and boosting them through a network of more than 3.4 million influencers across the country — in some cases paying users with large followings to take sides against the president.
In short, AI-driven information warfare is being used against you, right now, against your online opinions, beliefs, and internet experience. If you are a Trump supporter, you are most-likely identified, profiled, and targeted by anti-American bots, and even paid influencers, to marginalize your freedom of speech.
This is truly frightening.
Of course the problem goes much deeper than just McChrystal’s efforts, and we will outline more of the Information Operation as we proceed with our reporting in the coming weeks.
For now, just realize when you are online and opining, you’re dealing with an opposition that is organized, trained, and funded to be against you, compliments of the U.S. government, the development paid for by your tax dollars.
Think long and hard about that.
