FLASHBACK, May 2020, Democrats Announce Intent to Use ISIS Level Propaganda Against Trump on COVID Messaging


As recent media reports provide hindsight into how wrong the narrative was against President Trump; and specifically as details emerge about: (1) Anthony Fauci misleading background statements; (2) Obama’s involvement in the restart of SARS-CoV-2 weaponization via the Wuhan bio-lab; (3) the intentionally hyped risk caused by the COVID-19 virus; and, (4) the intentionally false attacks against mitigating medical treatments proposed by President Trump; it is worth revisiting an announcement in early May 2020 when the Democrats said they intended to use intelligence community methods to promote propaganda against the Trump administration.

On May 1, 2020, the Washington Post -an outlet known for being the manipulative propaganda voice of the Intelligence Community- openly stated a network had formed with the intent to weaponize “Technology once used to combat ISIS propaganda” against President Donald Trump and the White House efforts on COVID.

The problem, as they identified it, was President Trump’s ability to work around media control and share his message on COVID through his social media platforms. The former intelligence operatives and defense department personnel were creating a network of aligned interests to undermine President Trump’s ability to communicate.

MAY 2020 – The Washington Post: “A new Democratic-aligned political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former head of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, is planning to deploy technology originally developed to counter Islamic State propaganda in service of a domestic political goal — to combat online efforts to promote President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

The group, Defeat Disinfo, will use artificial intelligence and network analysis to map discussion of the president’s claims on social media. It will seek to intervene by identifying the most popular counter-narratives and boosting them through a network of more than 3.4 million influencers across the country — in some cases paying users with large followings to take sides against the president.

The initiative reflects fears within the Democratic Party that Trump’s unwavering digital army may help sustain him through the pandemic, as it has through past controversies, even as the economy craters, tens of thousands have died, and Trump suffers in the polls.

“It’s often said campaigns are a battle of ideas, but they’re really a battle of narratives,” said David Eichenbaum, a Democratic media consultant who is a senior adviser to the PAC. “Today those narratives spread quickly online.”

The initiative is run by Curtis Hougland, who is using open-source technology initially incubated with funding from DARPA, the Pentagon’s research arm, as part of an effort in 2015 to combat extremism overseas. (read more)

In hindsight we can now see everything was coordinated. We can see exactly what this group did to create actual disinformation against President Trump, which eventually included the assistance of Big Tech in removing him from their platforms.

The people within this network all come from various institutions within government.  This is the epicenter of the alignment against ‘We The People’, and this is the ideological enterprise I uncovered after spending time in Washington DC talking to people inside the Administrative State {Go Deep}.  In essence this type of network is at the operational center of the DC system that has removed the ‘checks-&-balances’ with three branches of government.

The vast intelligence community within the United States government now functions as a rogue controlling force.  Their institutional access to private information (NSA database), their control over all meta-data collection (PRISM etc), allows the people within this network to operate in the dark and weaponize information against their political enemies.

The “inside groups” permit and facilitate access to outside groups via intelligence contractors.  There is no supervision against their power and control.  Politicians (legislative branch) are fearful of their power, the executive branch is exposed and vulnerable to the IC’s political and ideological intents, and the judicial branch is manipulated by the IC (in some ways also facilitates the IC network) who use “national security” as the weapon to continue advancing their objectives.

Sundance Goes to DC – […] I still held the belief there were three branches of government…. and there were “checks and balances”… and there had to be some way for a good person to expose corruption. He quickly dispatched those beliefs (with examples).

10.) He explained the “checks and balances” I spoke of did exist at a time when there were three branches of government. However, that time has long passed.There is only one overarching DC eco-system now. The three branch concept is gone. Doesn’t exist.

11.) As he explained, the levers of power are all controlled by the same system, and behind that system are positions – not people, “Positions”

12.) People are evaluated based on their ability to support and protect the system. Their skill level is what moves them into position.Position. Evaluation. Next Position. Evaluation. Etc.

13.) The system more like an institution. Within the institution there are divisions. The divisions are what we used to call “branches”.The divisions (branches) are not independent from the institution of DC. The divisions are operated by people in power who hold positions.

14.) He identified the timeline of this institutional creation as a slow build (over decades), but most visibly increasing in publicity after 9/11/01 and the patriot act.

15.) Once the patriot act made the government responsible for total safety; the previously embedded bad actors took full control. One office of particular note was the creation of the ODNI.As he noted the amassing of surveillance power.

16.) once that Rubicon was crossed, everything after was downstream and unstoppable. The institution of the total intelligence apparatus now had full control…. over every branch (which again, he said is more like ‘divisions’).

17.) When he explained about the Inspector General part, I understood why the IG’s offices (all of them) are compromised…. and why there can never be a whistleblower against the system. Remember the “positions” part.  Yeah, the IG’s are key on that aspect.

18.) When he explained the legislative committee heads, he also explained how ‘advise and consent’ is used to keep the (executive) positions staffed only with particular people who have passed the institutional evaluation.

19.) He would know… his experience was deep in the part of the system that does the evaluation.  Think about what is needed to move into a position. A background check right? A clearance right?  Control of the people in the system, is done from the place where checks are done

20.) This is the place where people of honor and integrity are weeded out. They are a threat; or really not so much a threat, but just the “wrong type” of people. Said with a very matter-of-fact acceptance.

21.) One of the key institutions who do the background checks is The FBI.  That is why the FBI had to be compromised first in the structure of the new (post 9/11) system.

22.) Once you realize there is only one party, the UniParty, the next step is to recognize there are no longer three branches within government. Then everything that has previously created frustration starts to make sense.

23) The discussion about there no longer being three branches of government was an eye-opening part of the talk… But if you think about it, it makes sense. The executive, the legislative and the judicial branches all defer to the Intelligence Community.

24) Here’s the exercise he sent me away with: “If you doubt this system, stop and think for a while, then show me a single example where they don’t.” (more)

President Trump was an outsider, a threat to this system.

President Trump was too close to being successful.

As a result all weapons were authorized in the fight for his removal.

…. including mail-in ballots which required biological weapons.
