Robb: Networked Propaganda And US Politics


Worth your time, subject to the caveat that networked propaganda has always been part of politics in the media age.

This time, the Dirt People had their own network to counter that of the Elites.

  1. Did you see his piece on ISIS drones?
    Some eyeopening stuff.

  2. Propaganda is only as effective as those who buy into it. Think about that for a moment.

    • Jimmy the Saint

      To get really effective buy-in, the propagandist has to control all avenues of information acquisition.

  3. Correlation here:

    Bill King: “Trump is a Common Sense Revolution & China, Japan and the Fed in BIG TROUBLE”

    “Seek ye His Kingdom and His Righteousness”

      McAlvany is a pretty good fellow; I don’t mind the asians being a little worried about economic welfare ending, and I’d like to see the Treasury take over US money from a certain private bank.

      But I am NOT seeking any foreign kingdom on middle-eastern soil as a holy place, now or future. My own native soil is what is truly Holy.

      And the native volk living on my land are the chosen ones.

      No middle-eastern deity plagiarized from Ugaritic clay tablets, or his cuck-spawn son, gets to decide otherwise.

      • Hey there STP, I agree with you regarding where our feet stand.
        To me, anyone which does not take by force has chosen rightly,

        Some see and hear “The Kingdom of God is at hand,” and think
        that it is somewhere, but I think that “at hand” is exactly where it
        is, specially when we help and serve others to make them stronger,
        not weaker using our free will, from our own sweat upon our brows,
        not somebody else’s. I for one, see the opposite all over the world demanding their freedom via “other gods” taking by force from
        others, and that is their choice, but do not consider the depth
        and breadth of it all.

        If you do not force your will on me, no matter what you think, it is
        good of you not to do so, and I certainly try my best not to force
        my will on others. Simple I think, but as you should know, that is
        not the case overall, and that, I think was the struggle and passion
        of the man which was to be called emmanuel (God with us), which
        knew how/why/when that Kingdom (world/form of government) was
        not being applied.

        STP, kindness is not weakness, and there are times where one
        should give their lives for others, for there is no greater love.

        I only hope you can see and hear through all the confusions out
        there calling evil good and good evil.

        This quote is for you STP, and others:
        “Every man to his family and his belongings”

      • “And the native volk living on my land are the chosen ones.”

        Behold, another Prophet appears, not from the desert this time but from the Boreal Forests of The Great Northern Native Land……….

        Your land?

        “Chosen ones?”

        Sounds all-mighty like, y’know, biblical, ‘n shit. Or Mein Kampf… which was prolly written by Hitler’s Jewish ghost writer/counteragitshadowprop handler.

        My ancestors have been on American soil for 400 years, the other native Americans for far longer. It”s my land, and theirs too.

        We all get a say, see??????

        Watch out studying all that desert mysticism, it’ll infect yer “thinking!”

        Don’t you get it? Guys like you with hidebound ideologies, ironclad , narrow POV’s, are what’s known as “useful idiots” by the PTB, and are first into the ditch. I’d nominate you myself.

    Just love how the twittering “twits” took out the “book o face suckerburgs” using their tactics.

  5. Some people on the article were asking for a bit of info on TOR exploration. I tried to post it there but it wasn’t working for some reason, so I will include here a few linkys for the “Scary Internet” enabled.

    sigaintevyh2rzvw.onion – anon email, one of the best – FREE!

    grrmailb3fxpjbwm.onion – disposable email, auto deleting, always changing (just make sure you don’t use it to troll the “left” ’cause that would be wrong! 🙂

    rrcc5uuudhh4oz3c.onion – general intel exchange, both left and right on here

    underdj5ziov3ic7.onion – “The UD” massive website directory

    facj5l7pgk6ekxgw.onion – Additional DW “Security Tools”

    tt3j2x4k5ycaa5zt.onion/index.php – Chat, directory, links etc etc

    hc3sz3i2rb5dljqq.onion/#getnumber – “Ghost Call” anon phone (self explanatory)

    oxwugzcpbkscizdp.onion/index.html – This is the infamous “8Chan”, be careful who you talk to, what you post, and for God’s sake don’t click on any redirecting links unless you are 100% sure they are safe!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    hackcanl2o4lvmnv.onion/blackcrawl/patriot.html – older “patriotic” info, but still mostly relevant.

    gjobqjj2wuc5qecx.onion – Dark Web search

    w363zoq3ylux5rf5.onion – Galaxy2, social media’esk; groups, chat, blogs etc…

    Now for anyone that does not know how to use TOR, please google it. Understand that browsing there is slightly different than here on the Clear Net. There are certain online behaviors that everyone on the surface has that has to be modified when you use TOR. Also, it is best to download and use TAILS as well. Finally, research and get a PGP key!! —>double exclamation here!!

    First business would be to get an email address, SIGAINT is the best (first link).

    Questions? Fire away!

  6. I think williambanzai7 is a one man counter insurgent agitprop network.
    A genius. Along with Oleg Atbashian of The Peoples Cube. Stilton Jarlsberg of Hope and Change, and Ramirez is no slouch either. Counter agitprop is an extremely powerful weapon.


  7. The man is astute, and what he says here is important. What’s more, a great many people don’t even understand they’re being propagandized. And even if they do, they’re not aware of HOW it’s being done. The people doing the propaganda on both sides are relying on the oldest and best ally for success they’ll ever have. Time. Most people simply do not have the time in their lives to digest the whole scheme, nuances and all, in order to successfully counter or combat it.

  8. It took me a second to realize what was missing from this near Trump hit piece: The fact that the very same media he suggests creates a ‘cacophony’ can and are being used to create the exact opposite, namely, the fucking truth!

    Propaganda->fake news and easily proven to be so

    Also, not pointed out, is that propaganda (fake news) is self extinguishing and the old broadcast media he mentioned are now irrelevant and without virtue or credibility.

    • All normal people from 1900 to 1960 knew this stuff. It’s been suppressed the last 50 years.

      McCarthy was right.

  9. 350,000 fake twitter accounts used to gaslight and create fake trends:
    “Mr Echeverria’s research began by combing through a sample of 1% of Twitter users in order to get a better understanding of how people use the social network.

    However, analysis of the data revealed some strange results that, when probed further, seemed to reveal lots of linked accounts, suggesting one person or group is running the botnet. These accounts did not act like the bots other researchers had found but were clearly not being run by humans.

    His research suggests earlier work to find bots has missed these types of networks because they act differently to the most obvious automated accounts.

    The researchers are now asking the public via a website and a Twitter account to report bots they spot to help get a better idea of how prevalent they are. Many bots are obvious because they have been created recently, have few followers, have strange user names and little content in the messages.”

    John Robb is an interesting guy. I would go so far as to say that his self-image, due to his success, is several notches above where it really should be.

    Is he smart? Hell yeah. Is he biased in ways that he doesn’t understand? Hell yeah. Do these biases negate many aspects of analysis? They certainly do. I’d leave this comment on his blog but he has comments disabled in most posts.

    Check his “Tahrir Square style protests break the Trump administration” article, wherein comments are disabled. How did that succeed in Egypt? MASSIVE external financing and propaganda, organizational consulting and advising, almost entirely from US-rooted groups – govt and/or Islamists. Our State Department and intel agencies were all over that… the entire ME spasm was US-led.

    He doesn’t think that Trump is a suitable president, because Trump wants to break the system that Robb came up in and profited from. He is seeing himself as opposition to Trump. Does he get how Trump operates? In many ways. But which outside groups would finance and encourage his overthrow in the US?

    We all know – Soros and his bros, careening, to use the insults Robb leveraged in his article as subtle negs. It would be simplicity itself for Trump to tweet out links to multiple independent sources showcasing the source of the disruption. People would go to jail. Rightists would be in the streets, defending his administration. The right would KNOW that failure was not an option if they wanted to live – an overthrow would be utter ruin for us. It would go kinetic real quick.

    Sure you want to bet on that approach, John? I sure don’t. 😉

    • no, an overthrow wouild catalyze CW II. Which, after some time, we will win. And better the overthrow sooner than later because, Trump or no Trump, White demographic time is running out.

  11. The time for politeness is over. Understand this: the (((communists))) want to KILL us. They’ve done it every time they took power of a host nation. 20 million in Russia.

    Their holiday Purim celebrates tricky control of government followed by murder of the host nation. We let them celebrate this in our faces.

    They are “this close” to doing it again.

    Not conspiracy theory. Just open your eyes.

    Until Trump deputizes all white men to solve this problem, I side with those who say he’s another establishment fake. It’s time for the host nation to be freed to DEFEND ourselves.

    Read every word of this:

    CA, have you read it? No skin off my back, but this should take precedence over any other study in your life. Read it all, and then tell me the JQ is not THE question.

    Those who think Haxo is too radical are simply wrong. No insults needed.

    A news network used to be hugely expensive, and now it’s not. Reminds me of a time when books were hugely expensive, and then they weren’t. Trump = Luther. It’s Reformation II. What happened to the Catholic Church is now happening to The Cathedral.

    • The same argument holds for “movie studio” (which is now a digicam, a laptop, and a NLE software program), a “TV station” (laptop with a webcam), a “radio station” (laptop with a decent microphone for podcasting), and “newspaper” (webpage) or “column” (blog, facesnark, etc.).

      The average person is now Time/Warner/AOL, GE/RCA/NBC, Rupert Murdoch, Pinch Sulzberger, Random House publishing, or SeeBS News, with a couple of weeks’ pay, the time, and the desire. Bonus points if they go for credibility as frosting on the cake.

      If you install solar panels, a battery pile, and a back-up genny, you are now “the power company”.

      If the same becomes/is true WRT things like intelligence collection/analysis, electronic warfare, WMDs, or kinetic weaponry, we could expect western civilization to turn into Yugoslavia circa 1992 (or 1914) in short order.

      It’s a fine thing when people can take the reins of responsibility for their lives.

      But not so fine when they decide to become Pravda, the Irish Republican Army, the PLO, or the Cheka in their county, state, or nation-state.

    Seems to me that if a guy lived his life by his own values and judgments, propoganda wouldn’t be that big a deal.

    I wonder if that’s why they propogandized doing that as the definition of “immoral.”

    Nobody likes to be a chump. The answer isn’t to ignore it; the answer is to stop being one.
