How to Finance Your Congressional Campaign with Arms Sales

The DC Ukraine Mafia 4.0

Running for Congress? Short on cash or donations? No need to worry. Now, you too can finance your campaign through Ukrainian arms dealers. Igor, for example, will host the fundraising events in his $2+ million Washington DC brownstone (just one of several such houses he owns in the US). He will even throw in the Ukrainian Hors d’Oeuvres, Vodka, and Cigars.

And the best part is that you never have to worry about paying him back for any of these favors, because it’s all absolutely free, no strings attached. After all, everyone knows that Ukrainian arms dealers float the election campaign of congressional candidates like Adam Schiff, and Loretta Sanchez and socially and politically hub nob with Nancy Pelosi because they are just so cuddly and lovable.

If you don’t buy any of this, then the following Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, and Alexandra Chalupa linkage agrees with you.

Sourcing
Identifying Pasternak as Ukrainian and as an arms dealer is based on multiple sources including official ATF documents and press interviews with Pasternak. For example, an article titled ‘New Ukrainian M4-WAC47 rifle ‘a strong political message to Russia’ written by Illia Ponomarenko, published January 28, 2018 (using Pasternak as the source) states:

UkrOboronProm’s (One of Ukraine’s largest arms producers)…signing a memorandum of cooperation with the Aeroscraft (Pasternak’s company), a major aviation and weapons producer founded and directed by Ukrainian immigrant Igor Pasternak.   

In another publication, on July 8, 2016, the KievPost reported:

“Pasternak found himself walking on Kyiv’s central square, Maidan Nezalezhnosti, where the central protest camp was based. “(At that moment) I understood that I am a Ukrainian,” Pasternak said during an interview on Ukrainian television’s Espreso TV shown on April 2015. Before seeing the EuroMaidan protests, he identified as an American. Pasternak then started to visit Ukraine every month or two. In January, he signed a contract for Aeros to supply Ukraine’s State Border Service with a surveillance system to monitor the Sea of Azov.”

Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes – Who will Fact Check the Fact Checkers?
Shortly after uploading this post, I was contact by Saranac Spencer Hale, an an investigative reporter with Factcheck.org. Saranac asked me via email to verify that the images in the post were authentic. She also inquired about the face recognition and AI based analytics and wanted to know how the technology worked.  I provided her with the details and even demonstrated the Sentinel AI capabilities by running it against one node of her social network (using her email address as the entry point).

After providing her this information, she never responded to my emails or gave me an opportunity to comment about what she was going to publish. Several days ago, she posted a misleading report that falsely claims that I’ve misidentified Randy Credico as Igor Pasternak (the man Nancy Pelosi is shanking hands with in the middle of Image 15).

The fact is that Credico wasn’t event tagged or identified because he was irrelevant to the linkage. The main reason why this image was used is because it contained several of Pelosi’s characteristics that the AI classifier used to verify her identity. These included her face recognition, hair parting style, body features such as hand geometry, the age spots (on her right hand), and the ‘tight lips’ facial expression.

It is clear from the content of Saranac Spencer Hale’s misleading post and its deliberate mischaracterization of the facts that it was a designed to attack the Ukrainian linkage between Igor Pasternak, Adam Schiff, and Nancy Pelosi, and down play Pasternak role as an ‘arms dealer’. It is noteworthy that Snoops.com came up with and identical article shortly afterwards that recycled all of the arguments made by Factcheck.org. This suggests a close collaboration and synchronization between these two platform. This MO fits well into the genre of internet facts checkers who in reality are little more than progressive political damage control tools and information warfare units that whitewash inconvenient facts.

For the sake of transparency and to allow others who may want to get a first hand view into how the Internet fact checking industry works, I am posting the email thread with Saranac Spencer Hale below:

—————————————————————————————————————————————

Sara,

I have read your fact check and would like to reference this comment:

Apelbaum told us through email that his company used facial recognition technology to identify Pasternak — although incorrectly in Credico’s case.”

Your statement of me misidentifying Credico as Pasternack is both dishonest and deceitful. I have never claimed to identify Randy Credico as Igor Pasternack or labeled him as an arms dealer.  None of my images show Credico with Pasternack’s name.

Nancy Pelosi with Randy Credico

The image that you are referencing as being a misidentification was used to confirm the identity of Nancy Pelosi.  The relevance of the image with Credico is that it contained the following Pelosi reference objects:

  1. Pelosi’s age spots visible on her right hand (shaking hands with Randy Credico)
  2. Pelosi’s hand geometry
  3. Pelosi’s hair parting style
  4. Pelosi’s facial expression, specifically, her ‘tight lips’

These and other features were then used to confirm Pelosi’s identity in the image with Mr. Pasternak.

I was transparent with you about how our technology works and even went the extra mile to demonstrate the process on a person in your network. I expected that you would have had the decency to give me the courtesy to respond to your false claim before you published your article.   

But I guess, that is not how professional fact checkers with an agenda operate.

Best regards,

Yaacov

Hi Sara,

I wanted to follow-up on my last email. Will you be publishing the confirmation of the FR search you inquired about?

Also, find attached a sample run of the Sentinel AI against one person you know. The search used FR, object classifier, and GIS engine, and text analytics.  We constrained the parameters to a 60 seconds search, a single relationship node, and the detection of deepfake content. We also striped the search linkage and removed adult content, drugs, and firearm related matches found.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Yaacov

Hi Sara,

The high level overview of the FR process is:

  1. Ingest any image source (real-time streaming video, video in files, newspapers, images, microfiche, illustrations, CCTV, mobile phone, etc.)
  2. Optimize the image (poor exposure, illumination, stability, rain, or fog, etc.)
  3. Reconstruct the image (remove occlusion, compensate for counter detection methods like sunglasses, fake beard or mustache, hats, and scarf)
  4. Create a 3D facial object so that it can be manipulated in space
  5. Perform a wide range of analytics on the object including face recognition, age, race, gender, emotional state.  We can also plug-in custom analytic such psychiatric and medical indicators
  6. Fuse and enrich the detection with other sources

I hope this helps,

Yaacov

Great – could you tell me how this technology works?  Do you use standard news video footage?  Also, were you able to confirm the identity of Igor Pasternak in the photo where he is shaking Nancy Pelosi’s hand?

Thanks, again,

Sara

Hi Sara,

Thanks for reaching out.  Yes, we did utilize our Sentinel AI face recognition and video analytics platform on the Gigapixel mosaic and confirmed the identify of Igor Pasternak.

Hello –

I’m a reporter at FactCheck.org, a U.S. fact checking organization.  A recent claim has been circulating online based, in part, on graphics with your logo on them.  Here’s a link to the story that began circulating the claim and the graphics: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/09/breaking-update-speaker-pelosi-and-adam-schiff-connected-to-prominent-ukrainian-arms-dealer-photos/

I’m wondering if your company did, in fact, use facial recognition technology to identify the people indicated in the graphics. I’m particularly interested in whether or not you contributed to the image that’s attached.

You can also reach me by phone at 215-573-9195

Many thanks,

Sara

My Cane-tuck-ee Girl

My Can-tuck-ee Girl

Fresh of the lathe and CNC machine, a 4140 chrome-moly steel, 42” octagonal barrel, 45 caliber, and a 1:56 twist rate with 8 groves. Maple stock, brass patch box, and adjustable iron sights. She is a beauty.


My Cane-tuck-ee Girl

Keep your bony AR15 chick, I like mine with some meat,
My curvy Cane-tuck-ee girl, always sweeps me off my feet.

I love her lines and the solid weight of her body,
She’s a straight shooter, never vain or haughty.

Her dark maple wood stock, In my arms it lies content,
Her black powder perfume, intoxicates me with its scent.

She is a thrifty girl, takes sixty grains of powder, that is all,
Down her 42” grooved barrel slides the ramrod patch and ball.

I align the plain iron sights and gently pull her set trigger,
She instantly recoils with a youthful vim and vigor.

Practice, patience, and discipline, these are her demands,
A tight grouping at two hundred yards requires loving hands.
