Down the Discreditation Rabbit Hole

Down the Discreditation Rabbit Hole

Over the past few days an elaborate on-line narrative has started gaining traction proposing that the killing of George Floyd was a staged incident. The claim is that Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer who killed George Floyd is not the person currently in police custody or could be the actor Benjamin Ray Bailey. 

One likely explanation for why this story is being circulated is that its part of an information discreditation similar to the Eric Ciaramella misidentification, Ilhan Omar at an Antifa riot, and Need a Nazi for a project campaigns.

Fellow fish citizens, beware of the bait! Hopefully the following conclusive results will put this little conspiracy to rest. 

  1. The Person of Interest 1 F (POI-1 F) identified as Derek Chauvin in the police booking images matched within 99% certainty the image of the uniformed police officer seen in the video kneeling on George Floyd.
  2. POI-1 F matched within 99% certainty the image of POI-2 identified as Derek Chauvin in the police booking images. 
  3. The ear geometry of POI-1 S identified in the police booking images as Derek Chauvin matched the officer in uniform seen kneeling on George Floyd within 97% certainty. 
  4. The height of the officer seen kneeling on George Floyd is ~ 5’-9”.  This did not match the height of Benjamin Ray Bailey who is ~ 6’-6”.
  5. Benjamin Bailey’s image did not match the image of the officer in uniform seen kneeling on George Floyd.
  6. The ear geometry of Benjamin Bailey Object of Interest 2 (OOI-2) did not match the ear geometry of OOI-1 in the image of POI-1 S identified in the police booking images as Derek Chauvin.

What is a Discreditation Operation
Information discreditation is a form of character assassination and black propaganda. It entails the deliberate production and publication of information that is either completely or partially false and the distribution of such misinformation on various on-line or print platforms. Soon after the misinformation starts showing up in derivative works, news feeds, etc. or reaches some other level of engagement, the authors points out the false information and uses it to attack the credibility of the individual(s) who used, referenced, and/or distributed it. The end result is that the false information ends up discrediting the people who consumed and shared it.

*** Update 06/12/2020 ***
Apparently, the current conspiracy theory has just spawned another conspiracy theory claiming that George Floyd’s fiancé, Courtney Ross is Derek Chauvin. Running the analytics shows that the images of Courtney do not match Chauvin on gender, age, or facial features.

Gunfight at the O.K. Corral 2020

Gunfight at the O.K. Corral

In the final year of English Civil War (1642-1651), Thomas Hobbes wrote in his book Leviathan:

“Whatsoever therefore is consequent to a time of Warre, where every man is Enemy to every man; the same is consequent to the time, wherein men live without other security, than what their own strength, and their own invention shall furnish them withall. In such condition, there is no place for Industry; because the fruit thereof is uncertain: and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving, and removing things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continuall feare, and danger of violent death; And the life of man solitary, poore, nasty, brutish, and short.”   Leviathan, Chapter XIII – The Cost of War

Leviathan deals with the legitimacy of government and is one of the earliest treatises about the theory of social contracts. Hobbes observed that civil war and the brutal state of existence it creates (bellum omnium contra omnes – ”the war of all against all”) could only be avoided with a strong government.

The fundamental assertion of the social contract theory is that law and political order are not natural, but man-made. The political order that the social contract provides is a means to an end—it benefits the individuals who participate in the contract. But this contract also has a key condition; it is valid only when each party fulfills their part of the agreement. Hobbes argued that citizens are not obligated to submit to the government when its ineffective in suppressing anarchy.

This argument of a contractual condition was also supported by other political theorists like John Locke, who argued that when the government systematically fails to secure the individual’s natural rights, citizens can withdraw their obligation to obey the government and defend themselves. Locke believed that personal natural rights were inalienable and came from G-d (i.e., the rights to life, liberty, and property), and were supreme to the government’s authority (which also applies to the various Covid-19 mandates).

The Ride Into the Sunset
Several years ago our family decided to drive Route 66. Instead of finishing at the Santa Monica Pier, we opted for the southerly route and took a left-turn in Arizona. I cranked up the radio and to the tune of It’s another Tequilas Sunrise, headed into the burning desert sunset; final destination: Tombstone. I chose this destination as an educational aid for the kids, because this long-forgotten dusty town holds one of the most important civic and practical political science lessons that every American citizen should learn.

Route 66

On October 26, 1881, at 3:00 PM, two marshals and a deputy, stood up to the notorious Clanton gang in the small mining town of Tombstone, Arizona, and enforced the law that the local sheriff refused/was afraid to. The resulting shootout in a dusty alleyway next to the O.K. Corral Livery and Feed Company consisted of 30 shoots and lasted for about 30 seconds. This brief encounter became one of the most iconic gun fights in the west and has come to be known as “The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral”.

Beyond the simple function of enforcing the law, the gunfight set in motion the doctrine that the US Marshal Service has jurisdiction everywhere in the US including state police and local sheriffs jurisdictions. It wasn’t by coincidence that when the US Marshal Service was looking for a visual to represent their mission, they chose the likeness of Wyatt Earp (one of marshals who fought in the gunfight) as a model for the “Frontier Marshal” statue.

Regardless of place and time, the manner in which lawlessness thrives and spreads is always the same. Prior to the gunfight in Tombstone, Waytt’s brother, Virgil, said the following about the influence that the Clanton gang extorted on the town:

“This [large sums of money] is one reason they [the Clanton gang] have so many friends in town. All that large class of degraded characters who gather the crumbs of such carouses stand ready to assist them out of any trouble or into any paying rascality…They spend their money free as water.” 

In like manner, the mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, with the help of his funders/backers from various Red-Green Alliance organizations, is the primary enabler of the lawlessness and anarchy that now engulfs NYC. Just like the local sheriff in Tombstone, he too issues directives to the NYPD and DA not to arrest and persecute the Antifa and BLM gangs of rioters and their leaders.

After we got back home from our trip, I wanted to help our daughter visualize Hobbes’s abstract idea of government. So, we’ve built a display case with some Tombstone related memorabilia to illustrate why/how the feds should defend our natural rights. These include:

  1. Provide consistent nationwide law enforcement standards – the badge
  2. Deliver justice promptly, as, “Justice delayed is justice denied” – the pocket watch
  3. Allocate adequate resources for enforcement – the silver dollar
  4. Don’t manipulate the truth via media leaks – the newspaper clip
  5. Protect private property and enterprise – the sliver bar mined in Tombstone
  6. Facilitate nationwide concealed and open carry gun laws – the Colt revolver
  7. Own up to mistakes, power without accountably is like quicksand – the sand bottle

Image 6: The moral of the “Gunfight at the O.K. Coral” story

Welcome to the Minneapolis Caliphate
We know that the Red-Green alliance is behind the riots and that they fully control BLM and other related organizations like ANSWER and Antifa. On the surface, It may not be obvious, but what the alliance is trying to achieve has little to do with the much needed criminal justice system reform. The real objective behind these riots is the creation of independent nation state enclaves styled after the one operated by the Nation of Islam in Chicago. In this vision of a domestic Liberia, these enclaves will quickly expand into nearby neighborhoods, metastasizing and increasing their size and political influence.

Due to the rapidly growing middle eastern and south American illegal immigrant population in many large cities in the US, highly saturated ethnic centers such as LA, Dearborn, Minneapolis, Queens and Brooklyn are ripe for this takeover. The funding for the expansion and growth of these city-states comes from foreign sources such as Qatar and Turkey (through proxies like Mustafa Gulan), and south American drug cartels which have strategic interest in establishing these bridgeheads in US cities.

If you think that this is some far fetched conspiracy theory, check out the city of Chicago. The west side is controlled by the narco cartels militias and the south side by the Nation of Islam’s fruit of Islam battalions. The Chicago Police doesn’t dare to venture into these areas because of the native’s superior fire power. The following causality stats illustrate just how these self-governed territories operate. Last week, between May 29 to June 1, 2020 (one weekend) Chicago had 85 shootings resulting in 24 people killed and 61 wounded. This is despite the fact that Chicago has one of the strictest anti-gun laws. Not surprisingly, there were no BLM demonstrations in these locations in support of any of the 24 victims—many of which were innocent law abiding blacks.

What Is to Be Done? Or as Comrade Lenin Said Chto Delat?
The danger of allowing the ‘autonomous’ trend to spread is the precedent this will create in large urban areas like Minneapolis, Portland, and Seattle. AOC’s, Ilhan Omar’s, and Keith Ellison’s attacks on the police and their calls to defund it is just an opening gambit in this game. The rationale is that once law enforcement is out of these neighborhoods, the local warlords would be able to form ‘Mogadishu style’ militias that will (depending on the ethnic makeup of the city-state) include either a foreign army of “cartel sicarios” or “jihadi brothers”. Once entrenched, the leadership will shake down the locals and make demands for millions of dollars in ‘protection fees’ from the state using the ‘no justice, no peace’ model. Once this happens, we can kiss goodbye to legal jurisdiction in these locations. An attempt to enforce US law through basic functions like serving a warrant will turn into a full-blown military confrontation—a risk that no politician or police force would dare to undertake. By the time that someone in DC finally wakes up and decides that we need to re-raise the American flag over these territories, they would have to conduct a house-to-house battle of Iowa Jima style operation.

We know who is funding the Red-Green Alliance and who their leaders, organizers, and activists are. The time has come to act now! Anyone related to these organizations should be prosecuted, including leading media figures, academics, high-tech executives, and politicians. All foreign citizens involved in these subversive activities should be promptly detained and tried as enemy combatants by military tribunals. They shouldn’t have the benefit of access to our court system—where they can drag the process for years. Any foreigners who are even remotely affiliated with the subversive political activity—including foreign reporters/students/UN staff/diplomats—should have their visas promptly canceled and be deported/expelled. Finally, violent foreign demonstrators and rioters should be treated as Ex parte Quirin; non-uniformed enemy saboteurs.

For this past week, New York and other US cities have come to resemble the lawless Tombstone on the eve of October 26, 1881. We are now effectively on the verge of civil war and the president should invoke the Insurrection Act of 1807 and the Alien and Sedition Acts. He should also strictly enforce the Smith Act in order to above all protect life and personal property.

The support by progressive politicians, the MSM, and several governors for the gangs of anarchists and rioters—who now, with complete impunity, attack the police and law-abiding citizens, tear down public monuments, and destroy private property—constitutes a dissolution of the social contract and their rights. Beyond the thin veneer of woke civil rights activism, what we are really seeing here is a paramilitary led rebellion to topple the US government.

Over the past four years, we’ve heard a lot of talk about the need to do away with the second amendment and ‘modernize’ the constitution. In 1859, President Lincoln had the following to say about a similar proposition:

“The people—the people—are the rightful masters of both congresses, and courts—not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it.”

What we urgently need now is not a new constitution, but for the DOJ/FBI to take a short break form their political activism and incessantly blaming imaginary “white supremacists” for the violence and stand up in ‘Gunfight at the O.K Corral’ style to the anarchist mob and Red-Green Alliance gangs. In the meantime, we should all put our trust in G-d and keep our powder dry.


*** Update 06/8/202-06/11/2020 ***

The Seattle Antifa and BLM leadership has captured a 6 block area which they call the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone”. The roads leading into this area are blocked with barricades and protected by AR-15 and AK-47 armed militia. The police has abandoned their precinct station located in this zone.

The New York Times (a member of group of US newspapers registered as Chinese agents, who were paid > $19 millions to publish its propaganda) leads the campaign promoting the riots. In one such article titled: “Free Food, Free Speech and Free of Police: Inside Seattle’s ‘Autonomous Zone’”, the author presents the violent anarchy as progressive street performance art:

“What has emerged is an experiment in life without the police—part street festival, part commune. Hundreds have gathered to hear speeches, poetry and music. On Tuesday night, dozens of people sat in the middle of an intersection to watch 13th, the Ava DuVernay film about the criminal justice system’s impact on African-Americans. On Wednesday, children made chalk drawings in the middle of the street.”

John Brennan’s Final Letter

Comrade John O. Brennan

Perhaps I should not write all this in my situation, but I would ask for your pardon. I am seeking your understanding, since you know me better than others. I only lived to think, together with you, on how to improve our country, powerful and glorious, of course, within the limits of my abilities. For me to think otherwise is simply beyond comprehension. Of course, after what has happened, I should be called strongly to order, directed to my place, and dressed down so that I would remember it to the end of my life.

But dear comrades, you should understand that I am a faithful soldier of our Motherland, a loyal son of the party of Lenin and Stalin and your loyal friend and comrade. Send me wherever you wish, to any kind of work, [even] a most insignificant one. See me out, I will be able to work ten more years and I will work with all my soul and with complete energy. I am saying this from the bottom of my heart, it is not true that since I have held a big post I would not be able to perform in a small position.

This can be easily proven in any region or area, in a Soviet farm, in a collective farm, on a construction site of our glorious Motherland. And you will see that in 2 to 3 years I will improve my behavior strongly and will be still of some use to you. I am to my last breath faithful to our beloved party and our government.

John O. Brennan, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency

This original letter was written on July 1, 1953, by Lavrentiy Beria (the deposed head of the Russian NKVD while awaiting his trial) asking for the forgiveness from the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union Politburo.

I just substituted Beria’s name with Brennan’s; everything else fits perfectly. It’s all there, the job title, being a communist party stooge, the failed coup, his crocodile tears about the failure of the rule of law, his moral debauchery, the patriotic justification for his dirty deeds, and his willingness to take a ‘lesser’ job with CNN pimping the Russian collusion narrative.

Tavorish Brennan, Lavrentiy Beria would have been proud of you!

Beria Lavrentiy Stalin's Architect of Terror

Beria The Sexual Predator (Sourced from Wikipedia)
At Beria’s trial in 1953, it became known that he had committed numerous rapes during the years he was NKVD chief. Simon Sebag-Montefiore, a biographer of Stalin, concluded the information “reveals a sexual predator who used his power to indulge himself in obsessive depravity.”

According to official testimony, in Soviet archives, of Colonel Rafael Semyonovich Sarkisov and Colonel Sardion Nikolaevich Nadaraia–two of Beria’s bodyguards–on warm nights during war II Beria was often driven around Moscow in his limousine. He would point out young women to be taken to his mansion, where wine and a feast awaited them. After dining, Beria would take the women into his soundproofed office and rape them. Beria’s bodyguards reported that their duties included handing each victim a flower bouquet as she left the house. Accepting it implied that the sex had been consensual; refusal would mean arrest. Sarkisov reported that after one woman rejected Beria’s advances and ran out of his office, Sarkisov mistakenly handed her the flowers anyway. The enraged Beria declared, “Now it’s not a bouquet, it’s a wreath! May it rot on your grave!” The NKVD arrested the woman the next day.

Women also submitted to Beria’s sexual advances in exchange for the promise of freedom for imprisoned relatives. In one case, Beria picked up Tatiana Okunevskaya, a well-known Soviet actress, under the pretense of bringing her to perform for the Politburo. Instead he took her to his dacha, where he offered to free her father and grandmother from prison if she submitted. He then raped her, telling her: “Scream or not, it doesn’t matter.” In fact Beria knew that Okunevskaya’s relatives had been executed months earlier. Okunevskaya was arrested shortly afterwards and sentenced to solitary confinement in the Gulag, which she survived.

Beria’s sexually predatory nature was well known to the Politburo, and though Stalin took an indulgent viewpoint (considering Beria’s wartime importance), he expressed distrust of Beria. In one instance, when Stalin learned his daughter Svetlana was alone with Beria at his house, he telephoned her and told her to leave immediately. When Beria complimented Alexander Poskrebyshev‘s daughter on her beauty, Poskrebyshev quickly pulled her aside and instructed her, “Don’t ever accept a lift from Beria.”After taking an interest in Marshal of the Soviet Union Kliment Voroshilov‘s daughter-in-law during a party at their summer dacha, Beria shadowed their car closely all the way back to the Kremlin, terrifying Voroshilov’s wife.

Before and during the war, Beria directed Sarkisov to keep a list of the names and phone numbers of his sexual encounters. Eventually, he ordered Sarkisov to destroy the list as a security risk, but Sarkisov retained a secret copy. When Beria’s fall from power began, Sarkisov passed the list to Viktor Abakumov, the former wartime head of SMERSH and now chief of the MGB – the successor to the NKVD. Abakumov was already aggressively building a case against Beria. Stalin, who was also seeking to undermine Beria, was thrilled by the detailed records kept by Sarkisov, demanding: “Send me everything this asshole writes down!” Sarkisov reported that Beria had contracted syphilis during the war, for which he was secretly treated (a fact Beria later admitted during his interrogation).The Russian government acknowledged Sarkisov’s handwritten list of Beria’s victims in 2003; the victims’ names will be released in 2028.

Evidence suggests that Beria murdered some of these women. In the mid 1990s, the skeletal remains of several young women were discovered in the garden of his Moscow villa (now the Tunisian Embassy).According to Martin Sixsmith, in a BBC documentary, “Beria spent his nights having teenagers abducted from the streets and brought here for him to rape. Those who resisted were strangled and buried in his wife’s rose garden.”

The testimony of Sarkisov and Nadaraia has been partially corroborated by Edward Ellis Smith, an American who served in the U.S. embassy in Moscow after the war. According to historian Amy Knight, “Smith noted that Beria’s escapades were common knowledge among embassy personnel because his house was on the same street as a residence for Americans, and those who lived there saw girls brought to Beria’s house late at night in a limousine.”
