No Russians Need Apply

Corrupt Reporter and Former IC Official

On October 19, 2020 in a document entitled “Public Statement on the Hunter Biden Emails”, more than 50 former US intel officials signed a public letter saying they believe the Hunter Biden story has ‘all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation’.

They stated:

“Our view that the Russians are involved in the Hunter Biden email issue is consistent with two
other significant data points as well. According to the Washington Post, citing four sources,
“U.S. intelligence agencies warned the White House last year that Giuliani was the target of an
influence operaton by Russian intelligence.”

This letter is a textbook example of what is wrong with many of our former intelligence officers. On the professional front, they are incompetent, they exhibit poor analysis and reporting tradecraft, and show exceedingly poor technical skill. These individuals should never have worked in intelligence in the first place. Morally, the are completely bankrupt. Public statements like that subvert the truth and are meant to deceive the public. 

As Larry Johnson wrote:

“Their inability to grasp basic facts and engage in simple reasoning perhaps explains why the Obama team abandoned American military and intelligence officials at Benghazi in September 2012 and why they considered ISIS as “a junior varsity” team. “

No, dear former intelligence officers, it wasn’t the imaginary Russians again! The repair shop that handled Hunter Biden’s equipment is confirmed to have received the three damaged laptops from Hunter Biden himself. 

He signed on the work order on June 13th, came back a few days later and picked up two of the three laptops, and on the second visit he dropped off a data recovery USB drive for the third laptop. All the data circulating currently in the news is sourced to the third machine which he legally abandoned after 90.

His signature on the work order and on several other corporate documents including Burisma resolutions, credit cards, payment records, CEFC contracts, and other official documents all show a >95% match on his verified signature.

Amy Coney Barrett The Harbinger of Good

ACB shows her notepad

In an era where comets were considered the harbinger of death and wars, 13th century scholar Albertus Magnus wrote:

“Now it must be asked if we can comprehend why comets signify the death of magnates and coming wars, for writers of philosophy say so. The reason is not apparent, since vapor no more rises in a land where a pauper lives than where a rich man resides, whether he be king or someone else. Furthermore, it is evident that a comet has a natural cause not dependent on anything else; so it seems that it has no relation to someone’s death or to war. For if it be said that it does relate to war or someone’s death, either it does so as a cause or effect or sign.”

Amy Coney Barrett the harbinger of good
Image 1: Albertus Magnus  by Joos (Justus) van Gent, Urbino, c. 1475 and ACB 2020

Comets don’t bring death, wars nor pestilence, and neither will Amy Coney Barrett. She is one of the most stable, eloquent, rational, intelligent, and able judges we’ve seen. The fact that she preaches the separation of church and state should clear any remaining doubts about her suitability for office. The arguments that ACB is ‘too Christian’ for the job are similar to the claims made over hundred years ago against admitting the ‘too Jewish’ Louis Brandeis.

During the 1916 confirmation hearings, the opposition to Brandeis was virulent. The press attacked his character and downplayed his qualifications. Harvard’s President A. Lawrence Lowell — who urged establishing quotas for admitting Jews to the school and segregating them in separate dormitories on campus—collected over fifty signatories to a petition objecting to Brandeis’ nomination. The names on his list included leading members of the American Bar Association such as Taft and Elihu Root. More than forty witnesses and known figures from the losing side of cases that Brandeis had prosecuted spoke before the committee against him, disguising their personal animus in rhetoric about dishonorable and unprofessional conduct.

Just like in the Brandeis case, the frenzied attacks and wild howling against ACB are driven by  superstition and bigotry. This display of raw hate also reminds me of another time in history: that of the Malleus Maleficarum, when strong and independent women were charged with witchcraft and burnt at the stake by the tens of thousands.

Separation Between the Garden of the Church and the Wilderness of the World
Roger Williams the 17th century founder of Providence Rhode Island and the founding father of the founding fathers wrote that Church-state separation was essential for the health of both the state and the church. Williams asserted that there should be a “hedge or wall of Separation between the Garden of the Church and the Wilderness of the world.” When that wall or hedge was breached, he argued, it was necessary to rebuild it. Williams’ language is very similar to Jefferson’s metaphor of “a wall of separation between church and state.”

2 Chronicles 19:5-7
”He appointed judges in the land in all the fortified cities of Judah, city by city. He said to the judges, Consider what you are doing, for you do not judge for man but for the Lord who is with you when you render judgment. Now then let the fear of the Lord be upon you; be very careful what you do, for the Lord our God will have no part in unrighteousness or partiality or the taking of a bribe.”

Operation Snort

Operation Snort

There are currently a number of images circulating on social media that purport to depict Hunter Biden snorting cocaine off the backside of a prostitute. 

These images are being falsely attributed to Hunter Biden. The sources of these uploads are several progressive media outlets like Thunder Walks About. This seems to be a part of a wider discreditation operation that aims to attack the credibility of the recently released authentic Hunter Biden images and email. 

Hunter Bided snorting fake

: The fake post on Twitter. Within an hour of this post at 4:50 PM it received 636 retweets and 2.3K likes

The concept behind distributing this misinformation is to have these images circulate for a while and wait for some conservative users or media to start sharing them. Once this happens, the fabricators will point out the source of these images and use it to attack the credibility of the individual who referenced it. The end result is that the false information will end up discrediting the people who shared and used it.

Justine Coleman from The Hill is A Manipulative Media Hack

Justine Coleman is an media hack

On October 15, 2020 at 9:20 PM, Justin Coleman, a breaking news reporter with The Hill, published a ±640 word piece entitled

Intelligence officials warned Trump that Giuliani was target of Russian influence campaign

On the same day at 11:05 PM (105 minutes later), she rushed to publish a second ±880 word piece entitled:

Feds investigating if alleged Hunter Biden emails connected to foreign intelligence operation

In the first article, Coleman claimed that four former US intelligence officials that were ‘familiar with the matter’ said that the Hunter Biden emails and images published by the New Your Post are part of an influence operation by Russian intelligence. In the second article, she repeated the same claim and added that the materials are not being published by Twitter and Facebook because they violated their “hacked materials policy”.

Ignoring for a second the unfounded claim that these documents were obtained by Russian intelligence when they hacked Burisma. Coleman’s allegations about the inability to authenticate the emails and that the images are fabricated seem legitimate…that is, until you evaluate her credentials to make these statements, her articles, and her sources. Running Coleman through various analytics shows the following:

  1. She is a new hire at The Hill. According to her resume and bio, she has no commercial writing experience beyond a few fluffy internships.
  2. She lifted the articles from an NBC News piece by Ken Dilanian (the prince of impeachment) and a WaPo piece written by Ellen Nakashima (the queen of Russian collusion).
  3. She was instructed by her editor to publish the piece ‘as is’ with no independent verification of sources or their claims.
  4. The pieces were published by The Hill to help ‘amplify’ Dilanian’s NBC and Nakashima’s WaPo articles.
  5. All of Coleman’s, Dilanian’s, and Nakashima’s work is completely circular. None of these articles have even one substantiated piece of evidence.

 Justin Coleman LinkedIn Justin Coleman Resume
Image 1: The illustrious journalistic credentials of the highly trustworthy Justine Coleman

What about Justine Coleman’s expertise writing about national security and intelligence? Don’t bother looking for them, they are non existent. Her largest on-line footprint for original investigative work is her 8th grade science project. In this article, her ”Key to Awesomeness” is described as:

“Her science fair experiment was to determine how detergents, and the temperature of the water, affected stain removal.  “My experiment, basically, consisted of staining cotton pieces, washing them with different detergents and in different temperatures of water, and measuring the results,” said Justine.

To summarize it in a non-scientific language, she discovered that some of the stains came out, while others remained on the fabric, and that water temperature does, in fact, affect stain removal.

This basically concludes the listing of Justine Coleman’s professional qualifications to opine on any national security or intelligence issue or the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s images and emails.

Clearly, Coleman is somebody’s worn out sock puppet. It didn’t take much to figure out that Ellen Nakashima was the brain behind this little manipulative enterprise. So what’s the deal with Nakashima? If you are not familiar with this journalistic seraph, she is the reigning queen of the Russian DNC hack narrative. In May-June 2016, she actively colluded with Crowdstrike and the DNC’s senior leadership to develop the Russian source of the DNC hack claim. She then published that story on June 14, 2016. Then as now, she argued that the damaging DNC emails (the ones that describe how the DNC torpedoed Bernie Sanders) couldn’t be authenticated. On December 22, 2016, Nakashima again knowingly published and pimped another false article that promoted the Crowdstrike debunked claim that the Russians hacked the Ukrainian artillery using the same techniques they allegedly used on the DNC. 

What about the identity of the four anonymous former US intelligence officials that provided Nakashima with this information? It turns out that they are not anonymous at all. Just like the four blind mice, they are mere literary devices, they don’t exist! As with the DNC hack fiction, Nakashima completely made them up.

Bottom line is that the Hunter Biden images published by the New York Post have already been proven authentic. The same applies to his video, images, texts, emails, and other digital content that came from his laptop.

Hunter Biden Laptop Images Are Authentic

Authentic

The following composite shows the results of a image authentication and evaluation tests performed on two images from the ‘Hunter Biden laptop’ collection. The Biden campaign and various MSM apologists claims that they are fakes. The results of the image analysis beg to differ:

  1. The two images match Hunter Biden on face recognition within a 98% certainty (using a validated image as the reference) 
  2. The object in Hunter Biden’s mouth matched a glass crack pipe within a 93% certainty 
  3. Both images came back as negative on a wide range of tampering and deepfake manipulations

Conclusion, these are authentic images within a probability >90%.

Seen below is Vadym Pozharskyi in situ at an Atlantic Council event with former senior state department officials in the Obama administration including: Evelyn Farkas, Ambassador John Herbst, and Ambassador Roman Popadiuk. All hard at work unselfishly promoting the interests of Burisma. Why do you ask?  Because they are just nice like that.

Sampling of the Tests Performed on Imagery
Based AI based face recognition and deepfake detection. I’ve also performed a battery of forensic image analysis tests that included functions such as:

Double Quantization – These types of inconsistencies occur when a foreign object is inserted in a JPEG image. When the new image is saved, the untampered part of the image will have been compressed twice, while the inserted region only once. In this case, the tampered area should appear red while the rest of the image blue. If other colors are present (green, yellow) then no conclusion can be made.

Error Level Analysis –  These types of inconsistencies are produced by recompressing the image as a JPEG of quality 75 and subtracting the new image from the old. The resulting image of differences is then enhanced and displayed. Areas of interest are those with higher values than other similar parts of the image. Only similar regions should be compared, i.e. edges should be compared to edges, textures to textures, and uniform regions to uniform regions. Color discrepancies (commonly blue regions) are also generally suspicious.

Median Noise Residuals – These type of inconsistencies are based on isolating the almost-invisible image noise through median filtering. When interpreting the results, areas of interest are those that return higher (i.e. brighter) values than other similar parts of the image. Only similar regions are compared, i.e. edges are compared to edges, textures to textures, and uniform regions to uniform regions.

Compression anomalies 1 – JPEG compression operates in an 8-by-8 grid, which is near-invisible but detectable. Adding or moving an object on an image may locally disrupt this grid. The GRIDS algorithm seeks such discrepancies, and highlights them locally. The algorithm produces local red/orange “blobs” where it detects grid discrepancies. Generally, the GRIDS algorithm is less distracted by textures in the image, and focuses on grid disturbances.

Compression anomalies 2 – JPEG compression operates in an 8-by-8 grid, which is near-invisible but detectable. Adding or moving an object on an image may locally disrupt this grid. The GRIDS-Inverse algorithm is complementary to GRIDS in seeking such discrepancies. The algorithm produces local blue “blobs” where it detects grid discrepancies. Generally, the GRIDS algorithm is less distracted by textures in the image, and focuses on grid disturbances. However, it should mostly be interpreted in combination with other algorithm outputs that highlight the same regions.

Compression anomalies 3 – JPEG compression operates in an 8-by-8 grid, which is near-invisible but detectable. Adding or moving an object on an image may locally disrupt this grid. The BLOCK algorithm detects the image grid and looks for local discrepancies. Any coherent region with different color to its surroundings may correspond to tampering, although reds and yellows against a blue background are the most typical indication of tampering.

Compression anomalies 4 – The JPEG Ghosts algorithm is based on recompressing the image in multiple different qualities and subtracting each of them from the original. The resulting difference images are post-processed to highlight regions that stand out and are likely to originate from a different JPEG image. Then, the images most likely to contain interesting findings are selected (i.e. those that feature localized inconsistencies). Consistent yellow regions against a blue background may correspond to traces of tampering, especially if they do not correspond to edges, but to entire regions.

Noise anomalies – Each image carries invisible, high-frequency noise that is the result of the capturing process as well as the compression. The Discrete Wavelet Noise algorithm filters the image and calculates the local noise distribution at each part of the image. Regions that differ from the rest of the image are highlighted in strong red, and are likely to originate from other images.

Murder for Ratings

Stop media corruption

“The righteous man perishes, and no one lays it to heart; devout men are taken away, while no one understands… But you, draw near, sons of the sorceress, offspring of the adulterer and the loose woman. Whom are you mocking? Against whom do you open your mouth wide and stick out your tongue? Are you not children of transgression, the offspring of deceit, you who burn with lust among the oaks, under every green tree, who slaughter your children in the valleys, under the clefts of the rocks?”  Isaiah 57:1-21

Another public gathering and another Antifa-BLM-Green Alliance murder. It turns out that what appears to the naked eye in the edited news product as random violence are in fact carefully orchestrated progressive media events. In the case of the Denver murder this week, it shows clear evidence of a coordination between media outlets and well known Antifa-BLM-PSL agitators. As can be seen from the composites below, a professional agitator, named Jeremiah Elliott, baited and assaulted multiple peaceful demonstrators while his Denver Post camera wing lady, Helen Richards, was busy capturing the fictitious ‘right wing extremists’ in action.

This agitprop campaign joined by Zack Newman, a Denver 9News produce, and it was clearly aimed at generating progressive propaganda. Unfortunately, just as in any revolutionary activity, the business of manufacturing violent news is riddled with potential casualties. This event was no exception. Richards’ and Newman’s little Pulitzer prize initiative ended abruptly when Matthew Dolloff, another Antifa-BLM-Green activist and Zack Newman’s paid muscle, murdered Lee Keltner, all while Newman watched on and Richards captured the murder on her camera a few feet away.

Oops He Did it Again

Steve Scully Stolen Twitter Cookies

Evaluating Steve Scully’s Twitter melodrama and hacking claim, one can’t but recall the immortal words of the 4th century Roman poet Brittania Spearus. In her lyric masterpiece “Oops!…I Did It Again” she wrote:

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

You see my problem is this
I’m dreaming away
Wishing that heroes, they truly exist
I cry, watching the days
Can’t you see I’m a fool in so many ways
But to lose all my senses
That is just so typically me
Oh baby, oh

Yes, it does seem that life imitates art and Scully, just as in the poem, suffers from multiple reoccurring problems. Beyond his chronic narcissism and pathological dishonesty, he:

  1. Doesn’t understand the fine nuances of Twitter’s DMs vs. public posts
  2. Has an established pattern of posting inflammatory content and then attributing it to hackers
  3. Fails to grasp even the basics of what hacking is and how it’s done
  4. doesn’t understand that each tweet is traceable to the device posting it: the device’s IP address, it’s carrier, its MAC address, its IMEI and MEID #, and its phone number

Steve Scully Narcissus
Image 1: Typical social media comments on Steve Scully’s postings: “What are you eating? You’re looking younger by the minute.”, “He doesn’t age.”, “Looking sharp”, “You’re so handsome.”, “Dorian Gray!”

Scully’s assertion that his Twitter account was hacked doesn’t jibe with any of the evidence. For someone else to have tweeted from his phone would have been exceedingly difficult because such an exploit would have kicked him off his device and he’d likely notice it. Furthermore, to hack his phone and control it remotely would require significant resources, skills, and risk, and it would be easy to trace. The attacker would first have to bypass the device login security, gain full interactive control over the phone, launch the Twitter app, log in, compose the message, and tweet it.

Why go through all of this trouble when it’s faster/safer to just post the tweet from the alleged attacker’s own device? In typical phone hacks, the attackers look to conduct surveillance on the device (voice/video) and/or retrieve files and information such as an address book, images, and texts. Hence, a hacker taking over Scully’s device for the sole purpose of an ‘ambiguous’ tweet is by far the poorest return on hacking investment in recorded history. 

Steve Scully false hacking claim
Image 2
: Steve Scully’s ongoing 8 year Twitter hacking victim melodrama

Scully’s past pattern of behavior is consistent with a few other Twitter ‘work accidents’ and his excuses of having been hacked. Twice before, in 2012 and 2013, Scully claimed that his Twitter account was broken into; each incident occurred after he posted ‘regrettable’ tweets.

The fact that he deleted his Twitter account, then reactivated it, then went private, then deleted the post in question are also strong indicators that Scully is, as Brittania Spearus observed in her poem is a “a fool in so many ways”.

If Scully really wanted to, he could quickly put this debate to rest by asking Twitter to publish the event logs for his account activity. But he won’t, because these logs will unequivocally show that the source IP addresses, device type, and date/time of the logins to his Twitter account matched his iPhone. The cell phone logs in turn, will further validate that he was using his iPhone before during, and after the post was tweeted.

For those who are still trying to figure out if Scully is an unbiased reporter, a quick examination of his linkages shows that he is connected professionally and socially to a large number of hard core anti-Trumpers. One such friend is Mark Zaid, the attorney for Eric Ciaramella from the Ukrainian impeachment drama.

For A Good Time (and Ballot Harvesting) Call Ilhan Omar

For Ballot Harvesting, Call Illhan Omar

James O’Keefe III from Project Veritas has released a second video exposing voter fraud and ballot harvesting by Ilhan Omar connected political operatives in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Shortly afterwards, President Trump Tweeted it as well.

At min 1:59-2:06, the video references one of Ilhan Omar’s largest donors, the mysterious Basim Omar Sabri. If you would like to learn more about this outstanding human being and gain some insight into the type of individuals who float her and finance the 2020 armed insurrection, read on.

Ah, Salaam and Good Day/Evening to You, Worthy Friend 
Welcome to the Minneapolis caliphate. Our story of prince Basim begins on a dark night, where a dark man waits, with a dark purpose…

To the uninitiated to the shadowy characters of the bazar, Basim can be best described as the spiritus animus corpus of the sorcerer Jafar from One Thousand and One Nights. He is a convicted felon and a career criminal. In 2005, he was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison for three counts of bribing a Minneapolis council member Brian Herron. Basim’s illicit repertoire is not limited to old fashioned middle eastern baksheesh (bribery), it also includes other fine feats such as:

  • Removing a serial number from a firearm
  • Savagely beating a family member
  • Driving a vehicle without license plates
  • Damage to 3rd party property
  • Child endangerment

Basim vs. Gazeem from the Cave of Wonders
Image 1:
Basim and Gazeem

An Abridged Bio
Born in 1959, Basim Sabri is a Palestinian Arab who immigrated with his family to the US in 1979. In 1981-84 he attended the University of Minnesota majoring in political science. After graduation, he founded Sabri Properties. The company expanded overnight, building a massive real estate portfolio in Minneapolis. Sabri Properties rent revenues in 2015 alone were about $6,900,000. He owns multiple apartment buildings, commercial spaces, malls, private houses, and businesses. He is notorious for keeping his properties in unsafe and dilapidated condition and being in violation of building code standards. The city regularly cites his properties with infractions (182 times since January 2010).

Sabri owns a 13K square foot mansion in a Minneapolis suburb, an oceanfront condo in South Beach, Miami, and 10 acres of land in Miami. Sabri’s wife, Sahar Hamdan, runs several businesses under her maiden name and both have over 50 family members that live in the Minneapolis area. Sabri is considered the king maker in Minneapolis and is the second leading donor of Ilhan Omar and backer of several other progressive politicians including former senator Al Franken. In the past, Sabri has raised funds for the terrorist organization Hamas through a variety of charity events including one entitled “Medical supplies for the children of the massacre in Gaza”.

What Are the Odds?
In what can only be explained as a 1 in a billion chance, Sabri (under the name “Omar”) happens to own the Latino restaurant, El Nuevo Rodeo, on Lake Street & 27th in Minneapolis. This was the club where George Floyd and Derek Chauvin worked together as security guards. If that is not statistically significant enough, Basri also owns 15 properties on Lake Street, within the bustling commercial corridor that was wiped out in ‘a series of unfortunate events’ during the May riots.

The Wretched Refuse
In 1883, Emma Lazarus published The New Colossus in response to the plight of Jews fleeing from religious persecution in Russia. This poem (as well as the whole statue of liberty cult) has unjustifiably become the battle cry of the open borders and free immigration movements. A favorite among the soy latte sipping proletariat is the last stanza:

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Even if we follow the faulty Marxist interpretation of these lines, it looks like between Ilhan Omar and Basim Sabri we have already reached the quota for accepting humanity’s refuse and wretches. I know that this might sound outlandish, but moving forward, how about if we just avoid importing more characters from Alibaba and the forty thieves and instead limit the immigrants to the mentally stable, hard working, and law abiding individuals?

Being grateful for the privilege of living in this great country is not mandatory but it would be nice.

The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus – November 2, 1883
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”


Prince Basim’s Menagerie

He has many progressive white monkeys in his palace
And to view them perform a riot he charges no fee
He’s got Somali slaves, servants, and flunkies
Ilhan and the local media are so proud to work for him

The Anti-Defamation League Must Go

ADL 2020

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was founded in 1913 by B’nai B’rith to address the rise in institutionalized anti-Semitism in the US in 1900s. In this regard it shared many traits with other early twenty century American Irish and Italian civic fraternities. The ADL’s original mission statement was:

“To stop the defamation of the Jewish people, and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.”  This mission was extended to the ultimate goal of: “a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination or hate.”

The ADL used to be apolitical and did a decent job in upholding their mission statement but eventually, it got entangled in progressive politics and has been gradually losing its relevance. In 2015, shortly after it recruited Jonathan Greenblatt, the current CEO, the ADL shed its political nonpartisanship affiliation and morphed into a full blown, far left auxiliary tool of the progressive elements of the Democrat party. The Irony of this move seems to have been lost on Mr. Greenblatt, as this is the same Jew hating element of the democratic party that was behind the lynching of Leo Frank—the event that triggered the formation of the ADL in the first place.

The Lynching of Leo Frank

The leaders of the lynching party were all members of the KKK and senior Democratic party officials in Marietta, Georgia. The act was cheered by local newspapers and publishers like Tom Watson—a supporter of the Socialist Party of America, who also openly identified as a white supremacist. Frank’s kidnaping and murder was overseen by judge Newton Morris (who In 1891, at the age of 22, was charged with attempted murder and cattle rustling in California) and was carried out by over 40 KKK notables such as: Joseph Mackey Brown, former governor of Georgia; Eugene Herbert Clay, former mayor of Marietta and later president of the Georgia Senate; E. P. Dobbs, mayor of Marietta; Moultrie McKinney Sessions; lawyer and banker, a clergyman, two former Superior Court justices, several Cobb County sheriffs, and various ‘professionals’.

Living on Credit
The ADL still promotes itself as a social moral compass but it has become quite the opposite. These days, it resembles a massive money laundering and an organized crime extortion machine. In 2016, it fundraised over $67 million. During the 2016 Charlottesville marches alone, it raised $11 million. Between its unlimited cash and its now undeserved reputation of civil rights organization, the ADL has turned into one of the leading political king makers and serves as an advisor to elected officials and an arbitrator in all matters related to what should or shouldn’t be considered anti-Semitism.

Despite paying lip service and shading many crocodile tears, since 2015, the ADL has done virtually nothing to fight the flood of anti-Semitism which comes almost entirely from the ranks of the progressive left, MSM outlets like the NYTimes, and Muslim Brotherhood affiliated organizations. Instead, under Greenblatt’s leadership, the ADL has been targeting imaginary white supremacists, conservatives, and the state of Israel. Yup, you read that correctly: the ADL—which started its life as a defensive Jewish league—has actually turned into one of the leading enablers/apologists of anti-Semitism and is now playing footsie with classic anti-Semitism groups like the BDS movement.

Bring in the Trojan
Appointing Jonathan Greenblatt as ADL’s CEO wasn’t coincidental. Rather, it was part of a wave of red green alliance takeovers of US civic organizations. Greenblatt is a hardcore democrat loyalist and shares the same DNA/scruples with the likes of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Before he was parachuted behind enemy lines into the ADL, Greeblatt established his reputation as a battle hardened veteran of the Clinton and Obama administrations. He was a Special Assistant to president Obama and the Director of the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation (SICP) in the United States Domestic Policy Council. As director, he led the office’s efforts to utilize human capital and financial capital (concept Obama copied from the soviet People’s Commissariat).

Shared Funding and Progressive Information Warfare Platforms
A part of Greenblatt’s new political realignment for the ADL included getting funding from progressive big-tech sources like Pier Omidyar (founder of eBay), who also funds the internet censorships industry and many of the leading anti-Trump initiatives including Defeat Disinfo. As can be seen from the linkages below, Defeat Disinfo is a member of a large network of political information warfare platforms focused entirely on attacking the Trump/his administration and defeating him in the 2020 elections.

Defeat Disinfo Linkage
Image 3: Curtis Hougland, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, David Eichenbaum, the leadership of Defeat Disinfo. Hougland, currently works on multiple large scale initiatives to censor and block conservative content and users on social media. One of Hougland’s companies, Graphika, is also used by social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Google to detect and mass delete “deepfake” and “fake news” content

Decompiling several projects like Defeat Disinfo, shows that their network of enablers and operators includes a large number of retired and currently serving high ranking US military personal. On August 11, 2020 DefenseOne published an open letter by two retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonels, John Nagl and Paul Yingling to General Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The letter includes multiple false statements like the following:

“There can be little doubt that Mr. Trump is facing electoral defeat. More than 160,000 Americans have died from COVID 19, and that toll is likely to rise to 300,000 by November. One in ten U.S. workers is unemployed, and the U.S. economy in the last quarter suffered the greatest contraction in its history. Nearly 70 percent of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track. The Economist estimates that Mr. Trump’s chances of losing the election stand at 91 percent.”

The two lieutenant colonels openly called for a coup d’état in order to remove the president by force. Not surprisingly, the two are active members of McChrystal’s Defeat Disinfo initiative. But, these military linkages go even deeper. Paul Yingling, one of the two publishers is also a close friend of Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and was his deputy commander in Iraq. If you are not familiar with McMaster’s little conspirator club, he managed Alexander Vindman and Eric Ciaramella, the Ukrainian whistleblower at the NSC. In 2017, Ciaramella, was McMaster’s special assistant.

A week later on August 17, 2020, in another DefenseOne publication by Thomas Crosbie titled: Six Scenarios for Military Intervention After January 2020, Crosbie provided a step-by-step playbook for the upcoming coup d’état. Again, analyzing Crosbie’s network shows the same Defeat Disinfo linkages.

The presence of senior ‘retired military’ DNA and fingerprints in the 2020 election information warfare theater (where the ADL, NIF, and J Street are active) should raise a lot of regulatory questions. Four obvious ones are:

  1. Why is the Pentagon tolerating DARPA sponsored information warfare tools being used in the US for political targeting of the administration and the president?
  2. Why does the Pentagon and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff tolerate blatant violations of Article 88 in the UCMJ?—Which clearly states that:
    Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”
  3. Why does the DOJ, Secretary of Defense, and the Pentagon permit completely false statements like ‘…Trump’s suggesting that injecting bleach or other household disinfectants could be a treatment for the novel coronavirus’ to be published, out of all places, in US military news outlets like Stars and Stripes?
  4. Why are US non-profits like the ADL, J Street, and NIF allowed to engage in extreme partisan political activity?

The Progressive ADL Ideology
Ideologically, Greenblatt is a ‘cash on delivery’ kind of a guy. In 2016, he wrote a pro BDS essay praising Steven Levitsky and Glen Weyl and their call for a boycott of Israel. The same year Greenblatt wrote a foreign policy piece targeting Israel. In it, he argued that Israel was falsely claiming that the Palestinians were advocating for “ethnic cleansing” in Judea and Samaria (which they do, not a false claim at all). Greenblatt’s ‘expert source’ for his claims was Stefanie Fox from the Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), a leading extremist left wing Jewish BDS organization. JVP has a $3.2 M budget and a massive 200K member outreach program. This cross pollination is not unusual, as Greenblatt’s has a long tradition of affiliation with subversive left wing groups. While serving in the Obama WH, he worked with the leadership of Avaaz and other leading anti-American and anti-Israel groups like J Street and the NIF.

Leading the Internet Censorship Movement
In 2018, Greenblatt established the ADL Center for Technology and Society (CTS) and received a $1.75M payment from Pierre Omidyar. Despite CTS’s wholesome and organic title, it is little more than an information warfare platform used for massive censorship, influence operations, and political targeting. The members of the CTS advisory board include disinformation specialists like Shawn Henry, the president of Crowdstrike and the brain behind the fake DNC Russian hack and Eli Pariser, the co-founder of Avaaz.

ADL claims that they are apolitical, but it exhibits clear extreme left-wing bias through every aspect of its organizational structure and function. For example, its Belfer Fellows program is staffed entirely with pure political appointees like:

  • Naveed Jamali – An MSM talking head who made a name for himself promoting the Trump Russian collusion narrative
  • Dr. Molly Crockett – A psychologist who promoted the theory that Trump was elected because 60 million people wanted to “punish others—even at a personal cost to themselves” 
  • Dr. Amy Zhang – An assistant professor at the University of Washington who promoted Antifa propaganda and called for “the white house to disavow white supremacy”.

A Quick Tour Down Rabbit Hole of One Front Organization
Greenblatt is a collaborator and a friend of Eli Pariser, the co-founder of Avaaz. In 2015, Avaaz’s Hebrew language webpage featured a call to support the campaign by one Daphne Leif and other ‘pro-peace’ and progressive leaders of the ‘occupy’ and ‘tent-protest’ movements.

Image 7: Foreign activists and agent saboteurs (L-R) Eli Pariser, Dafna Leif, and Raluca Ganea

The idea of an American nonprofit NGO like Avaaz (which is interestingly headquartered in London and Canada) is meddling in the internal affairs of a sovereign country should raise a huge red flag. And, so should Avaaz’s ability to operate an international underground railroad for the supply of foreign left wing activist during the Obama administration. One illustration of how this maze of progressive organizations operates word-wide can be found in Raluca Ganea, one of Avaaz’s senior campaigner. Ganea, in addition to her work with Avaaz, also operated in a number of other international extreme left-wing organizations such as the NIF, Shutafut-Sharaka – where she worked as a senior media coordinator.  

Shutafut-Sharaka is made up of a group of organizations (mostly EU and Soros funded) that include the NIF ‘Shatil’, the Araham Fund Initiative, Sikkui and Agenda – a “Centre for Strategic Communications” which includes among its management Rachel Liel (also director of the NIF) and Oriella Ben Zvi (of Ben Or Consulting—a firm she founded together with J Street’s president Jeremy Ben Ami (a former senior Clinton advisor). On October 17, 2018, Jeremy Ben Ami and his J Street senior leadership met with the leading holocaust denier Mahmoud Abbas and expressed support for him and PA Minister Hussein al-Sheikh–this was just days after al-Sheikh personally authorized a grisly terror attack in Jerusalem. In that attack, the terrorists murdered 3 Jews, including a Jewish woman who was pregnant with twins, and injured 100 others. Just a few months after the terror attack, in August 2019, J Street was also leading the charge in promoting and shielding Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. It goes without saying the Greenblatt who knows Jeremy Ben Ami had little to say about this encounter.

Lineup 1

Rachel Liel was active in her role at the NIF in international fundraising for the occupy and tent-protest movements. Raluca Ganea in the past has also used Avaaz to promote her views on other political issues such as the deportation of illegal African workers and the “aggressive Judaization of East Jerusalem“, urging Avaaz members to participate in the weekly demonstrations organized by the Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity Movement. That organization’s leader, Sara Benninga, was the recipient of an ‘Honoring Our Heroes’ award at the J Street conference in the US in February 2011. Liel, Benninga, and others also worked on creating untraceable progressive funding pipelines via the Luminate and Arabella platforms and by using the NIF and J Street pipelines for laundering foreign political donations.

These operations were executed by routing large payments via domestic <-> foreign
<-> domestic bank accounts such as:

Avaaz, NIF, J Street, and the Incestuous Political Commune
Avaaz is engaged in promoting the agenda of the red green alliance and post-modern organizations, like Antifa, BLM, and B’Tselem. These organization in turn are tightly coupled and connected to the NIF and J Street and to two of Avaaz’s founders on the J Street advisory council, and Tom Perriello who had his 2008 election campaign endorsed and financed by J Street. Perriello just like Greenblatt, is a former a senior Obama official. He is now the executive director for U.S. programs at Soros’ Open Society Foundations.

Avaaz the BDS and Hamas agent
In 2009, during Operation Cast Lead, Avaaz ran a large media campaign entitled “Gaza: Stop the Bloodshed” calling for a ceasefire and re-opening of the borders and crossings and ending the blockade of Gaza. No reference was made to the thousands of Hamas rockets which terrorized Israeli civilians for years before the operation and no explanation given as to why a blockade was necessary to prevent the smuggling of arms to Gaza.  At the time, the following statement appeared on the Avaaz website:

“The people of Gaza are being squeezed to death. This week’s blackouts have finally reached the attention of the world — and the international community could help end the blockade. Our obligation is clear. This isn’t about Israel vs Palestine or Hamas vs Fatah: this is about 1.5 million human beings locked up in the biggest prison on earth…. The humanitarian crisis of sealed-off Gaza is only getting worse, and a rain of missiles is falling.”

In 2010, Avaaz firmly pinned its colors to the mast of the Turkish terror ship Mavi Marmara when it launched a petition calling for world leaders to:

“investigate the raid, end the blockade”, and describing the IHH/Muslim Brotherhood-organised flotilla as “humanitarian”.

Avaaz was also promoting a petition in support of Mahmoud Abbas’ unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state. Part of its campaign included a propaganda video analyzed by Andre Obler who concluded that:

  • Avaaz’s Israel-related campaigns were heavily biased and deceitful
  • The Avaaz web based “instant click to sign” policy encouraged its members to add their names to any US political petition without providing any background information on the issue
  • That Avaaz engaged visitors by means charged emotional language, and the promise of belonging to a “community” which “empowers” them and the plea to “tell your friends” 

These classic astroturfing campaigns were done on behalf of organizations such as Hamas, BDS, and Muslim Brotherhood affiliates like CAIR by promoting their objectives and parroting their anti-American and anti-Israel narratives.

The reason why Avaaz and the ADL function as Islamic mouthpieces can be traced to Avaaz’s founding members and their roles as paid foreign agents.

Paul Hilder
Image 10: Paul Hilder, one of the creators/promoters of the script that became “The Great Hack”, a paid propaganda piece that claimed that Trump hacked the 2016 elections using stolen data, futuristic analytics, and that the minds of millions of voters “were hacked” and manipulated to vote for him

Avaaz’a resident Middle East expert is Paul Hilder, a foreign intelligence asset and author of an 2009 article promoted by Avaaz titled “Gaza is Dying”. Hilder was employed by Oxfam in the position of campaign manager; he also worked in the same role for Avaaz and has written about online social activism for the Guardian. Like another Avaaz co-founder, Ben Brandzel, he is a board member of the British online progressive campaign organization ‘38 Degrees’, and the co-founder of ‘openDemocracy‘.

Paul Hilder and the political revolution
Image 11: Paul Hilder’s profile and his strategy for defeating Trump

Hilder’s credentials as a ‘progressive’ social justice activist and Middle East expert make him a favorite on the international conference circuit as well as in the MSM. One less-known fact about Hilder’s resume is that at the same time as he was employed by Avaaz, he also worked as Policy Director for the Middle East Policy Initiative Forum—a collaboration between the Oxford Research Group and the ‘Conflicts Forum’—on an EU-funded report entitled “From Crisis to Opportunity. The Conflicts Forum’s stated mission was:

“From Crisis to Opportunity” aims to support a new, inclusive approach to the Arab-Israeli conflict by opening consultations among legitimate yet opposed stakeholders through civil society-brokered dialogue, analysis and engagement. The goal is to explore accommodations grounded in real support in the societies. The action will engage rooted elements of Palestinian and Israeli society and stakeholders from the wider region, including faith-based movements. “

Ben Brandzel
Image 12: Ben Brandzel an Open Society Foundations funded expert in the formation of NGO fronts for international violent militant organizations  

Just like Paul Hilder, Ben Brandzel doesn’t limit himself to only promoting jihadi terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah, he also runs multiple Antifa style organizations. Here is a small sampling: Brandzel was one of Leadnow’s original founding advisors. At the same time, he was the Director of strategic incubation at the Citizen Engagement Laboratory (CEL) based in Oakland, California, and an advisor to the The Tides Foundation (“Tides”). Timeline wise, CEL began its operations in 2008, the same year during which Tides began to fund its anti-pipeline, “Tar Sands Campaign.” The Tides Foundation was fully sponsored by Soros’ Open Society Foundations.  In 2011, Brandzel came to Canada to set up Leadnow as part of the CEL’s strategic Incubation program for grassroots revolutionary action organizations.

One of CEL’s sponsored projects was the Online Progressive Engagement Network (OPEN). Ben Brandzel was its director. OPEN describes itself as “a sisterhood of grassroots campaigning organizations from around the world.” As it appears, the CEL bundled its strategic projects—including Leadnow—into OPEN. Just like with all these other NGO’s, in 2014, Soros’ Open Society Foundation donated $100,000 to “OPEN”.  

So what does this spaghetti of NGOs, projects, and international activists mean? The answer is that to the naked eye, they all seem geography separated and unrelated, but in fact, they all know each other, communicate/coordiante with each other, draw funds from the same sources, and belong to a world-wide umbrella of Soros funded progressive political initiatives.  

Bring in the Iranians
Hilder’s and Brandzel Conflicts Forum was co-founded and directed by the former MI6 officer Alistair Crooke. Crooke, who doesn’t speak nor read Arabic or Farsi, promotes himself as on Middle Eastern ideologies and claims that the negative perception of Iran is entirely attributed to the western failure to accept the benefits of revolutionary Islam.

clip_image012
Image 13: Alistair Crooke

Beside Crooke, the Conflicts Forum’s Board of Advisors includes Hamas supporter Azzam Tamimi, Ismail Patel of ‘Friends of Al Aqsa’, and Moazzam Begg of ‘Cageprisoners’. In describing the organization’s raison d’etre, Middle Eastern affairs analyst Dr Jonathan Spyer stated that: 

“It describes its aim as opening “a new relationship between the West and the Muslim world.” A document published by this group explains their intended meaning is to bring about the basic change in Western perception and bring Hamas and Hezbollah into the mainstream. The document notes the need to build a “link-up between activist groups and mobilizers of opinion in order to shift the debate on Islamism from a predominantly defensive posture to a positive assertion of Islamist values and thinking.” It also suggests “articulation of Hamas’s and Hizballah’s values, philosophy and wider political and social programs… Being more proactive in statements and rephrasing discourse to focus on the positive aspects of Islamist ideology.”

Azzam Tamimi’s

clip_image016
Image 15: Ismail Haniyeh and Ismail Patel pinning each other

A deeper dive into Crooke’s ideology shows a complete embrace of hard core doctrines of the Iranian ruling clique and strongly suggests that Conflicts Forum is likely either a front for Tehran or an intelligence influence operation of some $ort. Crooke frequently promotes Russian interests in the Middle East and is also close to the Qatari royal family which has been funding his activity.

According to Crooke, the true moderates in the Middle East are movements like Hamas and Hezbollah which are driving the philosophy of armed “resistance” (moqawama). Crooke claims that these movements were born in the Iranian Revolution and the more flexible intellectual traditions of Shia. He also argues that while Sunni Islam is based on a literal interpretation of the Koran, Shiite Islam is open to scholarly debate, which Crooke believes makes it more open to the Hegelian dialectic style, philosophical discourse, and positive engagement with the west. He uses Hamas as an example of Sunnis who have been positively influenced by radical Shiite ideology.

In this spirit, Conflicts Forum works to establish a:

“link-up between activist groups [Jihadi terrorist organizations] and mobilizers of opinion” and to “link with mass organizations in Western countries – social movements”. 

In a 2016 interview with Khamenei.IR (the official propaganda channel of the revolutionary guards) Crooke stated:

“Imam Khomeini was an Islamic cleric, a philosopher and a poet of high standing: pursuing what is often a private and personal voyage of inner intellectualism. He somehow, incredibly, in the words of Jaques Berques, “took in hand his people” ; gave them healing, authenticity and a solution to their crisis. He gathered up a tradition and forged a new equilibrium: one which would offer renewal through a grand ‘sewing together’ of dispersed parts, making the present ‘an organic whole’, not some mere syncretic assembly of parts. The tradition, on which he drew, was of Mulla Sadra, Ibn Arabi, Mir Damad’s.”

Alastair Crooke

Conflicts Forum’s relationship with Paul Hilder and Ben Brandzel appears to have provided that much needed link-up/cross-over to the American NGO Avaaz. Avaaz and J Street subsequently became engaged in the organization and mobilization of world-wide petitions in complete accord with the Hamas narrative. In this context, Avaaz and J Street are the actual link-up/cross-over and demonstrate Iran’s successful public relations campaign to re-brand Islamist terrorist in the west as proponents of “social justice”. They also work to whitewash militant organizations like BLM and Antifa and arrange US speaking engagements for convicted terrorist like Leila Khaled

A Case Study of the ADL’s & Open Society Foundations’ Strategy and Tactics
Over the past few years, the ADL and Open Society Foundations have been funding an analytics company named Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI). The stated objective of NCRI is to hunt down ‘white supremacists’ on the internet and trace the sources of anti-Semitic and hate speech. The company claims to have developed advanced AI based analytics capable of sifting through large amount of data and identify linkages and trends. It’s difficult to verify any of their conclusions because of the proprietary nature of their datasets and algorithms. In general, most of their reports seem to be driven by a political agenda. None of their published results can be validated independently, cross verified, and be traced to specific targets—which is a crucial requirement when evaluating any source claim in intelligence.

In one NCRI publication titled: A Case Study on COVID-19, Bioweapon Myths, and the Asian Conspiracy Meme, their ‘scientific’ claims can be classified as paid Chinese propaganda.

What we can determine with a high degree of certainty is that:

  1. The NCRI organizational and leadership linkages show that they are working on and promoting political opposition research that is targeting Trump and his administration
  2. They are whitewashing Soros’ worldwide social justice operations
  3. They are working on wide scale political censorship projects and are targeting conservatives
  4. They are promoting information warfare operations like the Lincoln Project and pro-China Covid-19 narratives

Final Thoughts
In the early 2000s, several US based Soros funded progressive NGOs such J Street, Avaaz, and NIF started developing a world-wide political influence and ‘justice’ network. These entities honed their subversive strategies and tactics attacking Israeli conservative movements and politicians. During the Obama administration and under the guidance of officials likes Greenblatt, these NGOs begun collaborating with extremist Islamist organizations that imported their activists/strategies/tactics (including Palestinian invented concepts like Pyro-Terrorism and the intifada) to the US. Now, with a few exceptions, they guide and control subversive politicians like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and the leading ‘violent riot justice’ movements.

Under Jonathan Greenblatt, the ADL, with the support of organizations like J Street has effectively been turned into a left wing agent saboteur that is promoting anti-American and anti-Israel agendas and shielding/whitewashing militant hate groups like BLM and Antifa. Starting in 2015, the ADL lost whatever little credibility it had and is now fully engaged in wholesale defamation and censorship of conservatives and the wide-scale suppression of US free speech. 

If you think that I’m over intellectualizing all these linkages (which are just the tip of the iceberg), I invite you to do a cursory examination of the organizations that now promote/support the ADL. Not surprisingly, you will find that they are made up of a coalition of the likes of The Democratic Socialists of America, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, the Movement for Black Lives, Jewish Voice for Peace, Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, and many others ‘extreme’ justice organizations which have been fueling the riots across the US.

All good things must come to an end the ADL’s free 1st class ride on the moral train is no exception. The time has come to strip the ADL of its 501(c)(3) status and have the DOJ conduct a review of its dubious domestic and foreign political affiliations and funding sources. Considering the ADL’s close affiliation with organizations like Avaaz, J Street, OSF, and their leadership, they should also be investigated for supporting terrorism, money laundering, and FARA violation.

If you are considering a donation to the ADL, J Street, NIF, or any other progressive Jewish organization, don’t’! Over fifty years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. wisely observed that:

When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism. 

*** Update 09/30/2020 ***

the Jewish Democratic Council of America which has close ties to many of the entities identified in this post has released a 30 second video that draws parallels between the rise of fascism in Germany and the Trump presidency. This targeted message stated:

“As antisemitism and white nationalism rise to dangerous levels in America, we are all less secure. It’s time to show that we’ve learned from the darkest moments in history. Hate doesn’t stop itself. It must be stopped. Vote — our future depends on it,”

In line with this strategy of attacking and defaming benign individuals and organizations like Ben Shapiro and Proud Boys, during the presidential debate, Biden, beside dropping an “Inshallah’ (with the help of Allah), and calling for a Jihad in the US also accused President Trump of being “sort of like Goebbels.”

The ADL’s silent nod of approval and turning a blind eye to these types of defamatory statements and tolerance of Jihadi and Muslim anti-Semitic activity is another affirmation that the ADL and other related organizations are cashing-in on the holocaust for political and financial gain, and  have completed their conversion to progressive ideological whitewashing outlets. To add insult to injury, these are the same outlets that also promote the claim that a fascist and anti-Semitic organization like Antifa is just an abstract ‘idea’.

Terrorists in Suits: The ties between progressive NGOs and terrorist organizations

In Mahmoud  Abbas’ 1982 thesis, titled “al-Wajh al-Akhar: al-‘Alaqat as-Sirriya bayna an-Naziya wa’s-Sihyuniya” at the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia, Abbas claims that the number of Jews killed during World War II was less than one million and that their death was a joint Zionist-Nazi plot. It’s interesting to note that Abbas worked with the director of the Peoples’ Friendship University, Yevgeny Primakov. Primakov was one of the architects of the Soviet active measures doctrine and the masterminds behind of the most successful KGB disinformation initiatives called Operation INFEKTION.

The Source and Meaning of Biden’s Jihadi Speech
Biden cites Abu Sa`eed al-Khudree (Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri), who was one of the ‘companions of the prophet’. al-Khudree is considered a leading transmitter of hadith (traditions attributed to Mohammad). He has over 1150 traditions to his name, making him the seventh largest source of ‘authentic’ hadiths. Biden’s passage came from Hadith Nawawi 34:

“I heard the Messenger of Allah (Mohammad) say, Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” 

The definition of “change” and “with his hand” can be further illuminated by Sahih Muslim’s Book of faith Hadith 179. Another canonical work on hadiths. In 50 a: Book 1, Hadith 86 we find the following passage:

“It is narrated on the authority ‘Abdullah b. Mas’ud that the Messenger of Allah observed:

Never a Prophet had been sent before me by Allah towards his nation who had not among his people (his) disciples and companions who followed his ways and obeyed his command. Then there came after them their successors who said whatever they did not practise, and practised whatever they were not commanded to do. He who strove against them with his hand was a believer: he who strove against them with his tongue was a believer, and he who strove against them with his heart was a believer and beyond that there is no faith even to the extent of a mustard seed.”

This reference repeats in several other credible sources such as Riyad as-Salihin, the book of Miscellany and Mishkat al-Masabih book of Faith.

The Arabic word for ‘strove’ is جاهد (Jahidun) and means to ‘wage Jihad’. This term is used in various related forms such as Mujahideen a plural form of mujahid, the Arabic term for one engaged in jihad.

By citing Abu Sa`eed al-Khudree and others and talking about ‘removing evil’ in the context of president Trump and his administration, there is no doubt that Biden (or his handler) is referencing the classic Islamic jurist definition of Jihad, which includes these three functions:

  1. Jihad by the hand – Jihad bil yad (force) – struggle through physical means (such joining a Jihadi army).
  2. Jihad by the tongue – Jihad bil lisan (speech) – struggle through writing and speeches (such as the Dawa – call to Islam).
  3. Jihad of the heart – Jihad bin nafs (faith) – fighting sin.

What is EMGAGE – Sourced from Clare Lopez
Emgage Action is a Muslim Brotherhood-linked Political Action Committee (PAC) that endorsed Biden back in April 2020. Left out of most media accounts, however, is the fact that Emgage Action’s parent organization, Emgage USA (formerly called Emerge USA, an acronym for Empowering, Motivating, & Educating Resourceful Grassroots Entities), is a front group for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is the U.S. branch of designated Foreign Terrorist Organization, HAMAS (itself the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood). CAIR was named by the Department of Justice an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation HAMAS terror funding trial.

Down the Discreditation Rabbit Hole

Down the Discreditation Rabbit Hole

Over the past few days an elaborate new on-line narrative has been gaining traction. It proposes that the death of George Floyd was a staged incident. Another claim is that Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer who arrested George Floyd is not the person currently in police custody and that the police officer seen in the images is, rather, the actor Benjamin Ray Bailey.

One likely explanation for why this story is being circulated is that it’s part of a disinformation campaign similar to those of the  Eric Ciaramella misidentification, Ilhan Omar at an Antifa riot, and Need a Nazi for a project.

Regardless of the rationale behind this publication, O 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 (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. 

Note on Image Sourcing:
All Derek Chauvin’s images were acquired from the following primary sources. All images were tested for deepfake content and post editing.

  1. Booking photos taken on on May 29, 2020, at the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office
  2. Booking photos taken on May 30, 2020, at the Hennepin County Jail
  3. Booking photos taken on May 31, 2020, at the Oak Park Minnesota Correctional Facility
  4. Minnesota beauty pageant competition footage recorded on June 23, 2018

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 and news feeds, or reaches a certain level of engagement, the fabricator will point out the false information and use it to attack the credibility of the individual(s) who referenced it. The end result is that the false information ends up discrediting the people who shared and used it. Fact checker organizations like Snopes.com and  Factcheck.org, are some of the largest producers of this type of content.

Samples of Discreditation content

The use of discreditation techniques can be illustrated via some of the QAnon affiliated user content on social media and how its being leveraged to censor conservative political speech. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube permit vile anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic, and pro-jihadi materials to circulate widely for months on their platforms (this is despite the fact that they have the AI to instantly intercept and block it). As these materials spread throughout various communities and gain traction, the platforms take note of the users that view it and then censor them on the grounds that they are affiliated with the conspiratorial materials.

As many conservative users have discovered over the past three years, they don’t have to post anything controversial to get banned. Their only crime is that they viewed ‘subversive’ materials (which ironically, at least some them are produced by US based progressive propagandists as bait). Suspiciously, these propagandist continue to operate on these platforms even after the legitimate users are banned.

Of interest is the “Putin personality cult” propaganda published by some operators in early-mid 2016, long before the QAnon movement started.

Interview with Rabbi Abraham Finkelstein

A radio Interview with a Rabbi Abraham Finkelstein (the photo is a repurposed image of an attorney named Kenneth Weinberg). This hoax interview was produced in 2001 by the James Wickstrom. In the interview, the fictitious New York Rabbi admits to murdering between 100K-300K children per year in the US in order to first use their blood to make Passover bread, and then sell their bodies to McDonalds so they can be made into burgers and sausages. This posting has been on YouTube since September 27, 2019. It has been viewed over 227K times and has 2,075 comments.

*** Update 06/12/2020 ***
Apparently, the current Derek Chauvin conspiracy theory has spawned another conspiracy theory which claims that George Floyd’s fiance, Courtney Ross, is actually Derek Chauvin. Running the analytics on her verified image shows that the image of Courtney does not match Chauvin on gender, age, nor facial features.

Jason Gelinas and QAnon

Gelinas’s progressive linkages, social network, and on-line activity don’t match the early 2017 QAnon style and form. It is likely that the content that Gelinas is aggregating/generating on his Qmap.pub site is either a honeypot or a large scale discreditation operation in the style of ‘Trust Sessions
