Shame on you, Joe Biden

A call to the American Liberal Jewish Community, join the WalkAway Campaign.

The WalkAway Campaign is a true grassroots movement, founded by former liberal, Brandon Straka on May 26th, 2018. The WalkAway Campaign encourages and supports those on the Left to walk away from the divisive tenets endorsed and mandated by the Democratic Party of today. We are walking away from the lies, the false narratives, the fake news, the race-baiting, the victim narrative, the violence, the vandalism, the vitriol. We are walking away from a party driven by hate. We are walking toward patriotism and a new, unified America! We are the future of this great nation!

Union Worker Responds to Biden’s Threat Against “AR-14”

Pro-gun worker who Biden said was ‘full of ****’ speaks out on Fox News

William Cummings:

The worker who got into a heated gun control debate with Joe Biden at a Detroit auto plant told Fox News on Wednesday that the former vice president “went off the deep end.” 

Jerry Wayne told the hosts of “Fox & Friends” that he had been thinking about what he would ask Biden if he had the opportunity since learning Tuesday morning that the 2020 presidential candidate would be visiting the Fiat Chrysler facility. 

When Wayne got his chance, he said he asked Biden how he planned to help union workers. 

“I also asked him how he wanted to get the vote of the working man when a lot of us wield arms. We bear arms and we like to do that,” Wayne said, “If he wants to give us work and take our guns, I don’t see how he’s going to get the same vote.” 

Video of their exchange shows Wayne accusing Biden of “actively trying to end our Second Amendment right” and “take away our guns.” 

“You’re full of —-,” Biden responded. “I support the Second Amendment.”

Wayne and Biden continued their gun control debate. Biden went on to mistakenly refer to “AR-14s” when he meant AR-15s, and he told Wayne not to be “such a horse’s —.” 

“He could have easily said, ‘I’m not taking questions,’ and I would have very respectfully walked away. But he wanted to listen to my question and I don’t think that he was ready for it,” Wayne said. 

Wayne was not bothered by Biden’s use of profanity, which he said was common where he worked and which “most people use all the time.” 

“I don’t think that’s something to beat the guy up about,” Wayne said.

“I thought I was pretty articulate and respectful. I didn’t try to raise any feathers. And he kind of just went off the deep end,” Wayne said.

In their exchange, Biden said AR-15s – a U.S.-made style of semi-automatic rifle that has become synonymous with assault weapons – should be illegal. Wayne says handguns are responsible for more deaths, so he is skeptical of bans on assault rifles in the name of safety. 

Among other gun control measures, Biden’s campaign platform calls for a ban on the sale and manufacture of assault weapons (though that term is not defined). While possession of such firearms would not be made illegal, owners would have to either sell them in a voluntary government buyback program or register them with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. But nothing in Biden’s platform calls for the seizure of any previously owned firearms. 

Nonetheless, Wayne seemed convinced Biden wishes to confiscate guns. The “Fox & Friends” hosts played a clip of Biden accepting the endorsement of former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, and vowing to have O’Rourke – who has called for a mandatory buyback program on assault rifles – lead his gun control effort. 

“It was a little bit disturbing to see that a politician wants to take away my right to defend myself,” Wayne said. 

“He doesn’t need to touch anybody’s weapon at all,” Wayne said. “What we need to do is we need to concentrate on teaching people how to respect firearms and how to use them, not take them away.” 

The fierce gun rights advocate said his life has been a “whirlwind” since the encounter but he considered it an “absolute privilege and an honor to be the voice of Americans” on firearms.

“This is a right that we need to protect with our heart and soul,” he said. 

Wayne said he did not vote for Donald Trump in 2016, but declined to say who planned to vote for in 2020. 

Communism – The Deadliest Virus

The World’s Deadliest Virus – Global Communism – it’s coming!

By Tina Brooker:

The violence and division that we are witnessing sweeping across the West should be a wake up call for each and every one of us.  We must learn from history NOT destroy it.  

Communism is a deadly virus, one which must be vaccinated and eradicated before it spreads and kills our freedoms and all that we hold dear.

Nearly 200 years after the writing of the Communist manifesto, the left are now using identity politics and violence in order to resurrect this extremist ideology which is all about power and control.

What is Communism?

In 1848 Europe was burning, political upheaval led to mass violent riots in over 50 countries buildings burn, shops looted and national militias are called in to quell “the mob” sound familiar?

This was the year when Karl Marx published his Communist manifesto it outlined how to destroy Capitalism and usher in Communism through the means of Socialism.  To accomplish this goal the manifesto pits two groups against each other based on their identity – Bourgeoisie versus Proletariat – essentially business owners versus the workers of that business.  

Identity hatred is the key component that makes Communism work.  The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles – Karl Marx.

Today we would call this IDENTITY POLITICS.

The principles are the same define people by their groups and pit them against each other with a perceived injustice, a toxic mix.  What follows is violence.  Marx embraced violence.  He called for the overthrow of all existing social conditions and for the common ruin of the classes.

The United Nations

At this point I would like to refer you to an excerpt from an earlier article I have written on the United Nations entitled “UN Calls for Global Governance” in which António Guterres the UN Secretary-General and former president of the Socialist International Party from 1999 to 2005, is, off the back of the “Coronavirus “pandemic, pushing for “global governance”.  Stating:-

“There is a widespread and increasing distrust of national governments, “inequality, discrimination, corruption and lack of opportunities all over the world – grievances that still need to be addressed, including with a renewed social contract. 

The UN also recently tweeted its support for Antifa on its official page – alarm bells ringing yet?

Now lets return to the Marx era – What we were left with after this violent ideology of class warfare is a Communist state. Complete State ownership of your life.  No private property, high taxes, Government control of communications and media. Government jobs for all workers.  Government income for all workers.  Mandatory Government education.  Government that supersedes the Church in power.  

These are the programs the left are pushing today using Identity Politics and violence to do it. This is all about Power and control.

In 1917 Marx’s ideas got their big shot. Vladimir Lenin was a Russian Marxist living in exile in Switzerland during World War I.  Lenin believed wholeheartedly in Communism and saw the Russian political upheaval during the war as his shot to create a Communist State.  Shockingly, when Lenin asked the German military for passage to Russia in the midst of a war between the two countries Germany enthusiastically said yes.  

The Germans treated Lenin and his Communism as a deadly weapon to be used against their Russian enemy – a virus to infect the opponent and cripple them.  The Germans agreed to transport Lenin across the front lines into Russia, but only via a sealed train so Lenin and his virus could not break out into Germany.  Unleashing the deadly weapon of Communism on the Russian people was a horrifically effective tactic.  As soon as Lenin arrived in Russia, he began to employ Identity Politics and Social Justice as a potent tool in his civil war.

Lenin told his armed revolutionaries in 1918 “Comrade, hang and I mean hang so that the people can see, not less than 100 known rich men, do this so that for hundreds of miles around the people can see, tremble, know and cry.”

Lenin won using Identity Politics to pit groups against each other, incite violence, create anarchy, and then the virus took hold.  Private property and businesses were immediately dissolved, freedom of speech eliminated, individual freedoms crushed, economic collapse, famine, starvation, secret police raids.  Millions of Russians were sent to concentration camps.  

It is critical to note this mass death is not caused by Foreign Forces, but from within.  Communism kills in the name of equality.  They kill their own people, Communists do not care, they are indifferent to the suffering.

Man made famines and mass starvation in concentration camps are the norm, the cost of social justice.

The death toll numbers under Communism are staggering Eastern Europe 1m, Vietnam 1m, Afghanistan 1.5m, Africa 1.7m, North Korea 2m, Cambodia 2m, Soviet Russia 20m people, but nowhere is the genocidal sociopathic blood lust of Communism more evident than the dark history of Communist China.  

The Rise of Chinese Communism 

China became a Communist State in 1949 after a bloody prolonged civil war led by Mao Zedong.  After becoming a Communist dictator Mao joked about the killing of business owners in his own country.  30m people.  “We have so many people we can afford to lose a few”.  

Mao’s attempt to industrialise China known as the Great Leap Forward murdered more than 45m people in a few short years, many simply from starvation.  A total of 65m Chinese nationals were murdered under Mao’s Communism.  Mao kept power in spite of the genocide.  Communists NEVER give up power, ever.  They don’t have to.

The State is god, you are nothing.  Mao’s political party remains in power in China to this day and they exercise an iron clad grip on its people.  

Antifa/Black Lives Matter

Many of the organised leftists torching American cities are Marxists, they openly admit it.  Indeed, Patrisse Cullors co-founder of Black Lives Matter is on video openly stating “We are trained Marxists.  We are super versed on ideological theories”.  They use identity and class division to destroy private property in the name of “justice”, demonise capitalists, publicly persecute those who disagree with you.  Incite violence and seize power and control.

Analysis

It would appear as with Lenin who used the upheaval of war as his shot at create a  Communist state – we now see Antifa and Black Lives Matter using the upheaval of Covid-19 to launch their opening attack upon the West.  We have started to see history repeating itself. 

But who is the Chief Commander leading this dangerous coup? 

The United Nation’s Agenda 2030 is an inventory and control plan of ALL land, water, minerals, plants, animals, construction all means of production, food, energy, information and all human beings in the world – ultimately a one world governance structure from a central unit.”  

I believe we may have been given a few inadvertent clues as to who is really running this operation – hidden in plain sight.

Time to shine the spotlight on the United Nations – and join up the dots.

Remember you cannot kill an idea but ideas can kill you.

The Left has moved from Socialism to Careerism

AG Barr:
Democrats are now the “Rousseauian Revolutionary Party that believes in tearing down the system”
“They’re not interested in compromise. They’re not interested in [a] dialectic exchange of views. They’re interested in total victory…It’s a substitute for religion.”
The left is Knowingly complicit in the destruction of America as we know it.
They don’t want to stand by the ideals of justice instead they cower to the mob and don’t condemn the violence in hopes that they too will not fall victim to the mob
They have surrender their ultimate authority to anarchists with one goal, destruction.
The Left has moved from Socialism to Careerism where they move with one motive no matter the repercussions to society and that is solely to get re-elected by any means.
This is why our founding fathers created The Constitution, for groups just like this who choose to water the seeds of division and try to cultivate hate for America thus creating future generations who also despise our country.

Weaponizing the Social Media

All credits to The Corbett Report.

Now openly admitted, governments and militaries around the world employ armies of keyboard warriors to spread propaganda and disrupt their online opposition. Their goal? To shape public discourse around global events in a way favorable to their standing military and geopolitical objectives. Their method? The Weaponization of Social Media. This is The Corbett Report.

TRANSCRIPT

It didn’t take long from the birth of the world wide web for the public to start using this new medium to transmit, collect and analyze information in ways never before imagined. The first message boards and clunky “Web 1.0” websites soon gave way to “the blogosphere.” The arrival of social media was the next step in this evolution, allowing for the formation of communities of interest to share information in real-time about events happening anywhere on the globe.

But as quickly as communities began to form around these new platforms, governments and militaries were even quicker in recognizing the potential to use this new medium to more effectively spread their own propaganda.

Their goal? To shape public discourse around global events in a way favorable to their standing military and geopolitical objectives.

Their method? The Weaponization of Social Media.

Facebook. Twitter. YouTube. Snapchat. Instagram. Reddit. “Social media” as we know it today barely existed fifteen years ago. Although it provides new ways to interact with people and information from all across the planet virtually instantaneously and virtually for free, we are only now beginning to understand the depths of the problems associated with these new platforms. More and more of the original developers of social media sites like Facebook and Twitter admit they no longer use social media themselves and actively keep it away from their children, and now they are finally admitting the reason why: social media was designed specifically to take advantage of your psychological weaknesses and keep you addicted to your screen.

SEAN PARKER: If the thought process that went into building these applications—Facebook being the first of them to really understand it—that thought process was all about “How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?” And that means that we need to sort of give you a little dopamine hit every once in a while because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever, and that’s gonna get you to contribute more content and that’s gonna get you more likes and comments. So it’s a social validation feedback loop. I mean it’s exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you’re exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology. And I think that we—the inventors/creators, you know, it’s me, it’s Mark, it’s Kevin Systrom at Instagram, it’s all of these people—understood this consciously and we did it anyway.

It should be no surprise, then, that in this world of social media addicts and smartphone zombies, the 24/7 newsfeed is taking up a greater and greater share of people’s lives. Our thoughts, our opinions, our knowledge of the world, even our mood are increasingly being influenced or even determined by what we see being posted, tweeted or vlogged. And the process by which these media shape our opinions is being carefully monitored and analyzed, not by the social media companies themselves, but by the US military.

MARINA PORTNAYA: When the world’s largest social media platform betrays its users, there’s going to be outrage.

ABC HOST: The study to see whether Facebook could influence the emotional state of its users on that news feed.

CNN ANCHOR: It allowed researchers to manipulate almost 700,000 users’ news feeds. Some saw more positive news about their friends, others saw more negative.

CNN GUEST: Well I’m not surprised. I mean we’re all kind of lab rat than the big Facebook experiment.

PORTNAYA: But it wasn’t only Facebook’s experiment. It turns out the psychological study was connected to the US government’s research on social unrest.

MORNING JOE GUEST: This is really kind of creepy.

PORTNAYA: And it gets worse. What you may not know is that the US Department of Defense has reportedly spent roughly $20 million conducting studies aimed at learning how to manipulate online behavior in order to influence opinion. The initiative was launched in 2011 by the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, otherwise known as DARPA. The program is best described as the US media’s effort to become better at detecting and conducting propaganda campaigns via social media. Translation: When anti-government messages gain ground virally, Washington wants to find a way to spread counter opinion.

SOURCE: US military harnesses social media to manipulate online behaviour

The DARPA document that details the Pentagon’s plans for influencing opinions in the social media space is called “Social Media in Strategic Communication.” DARPA’s goal, according to their own website, is “to develop tools to help identify misinformation or deception campaigns and counter them with truthful information.”

Exactly what tools were developed for this purpose and how they are currently being deployed is unclear. But Rand Walzman, the program’s creator, admitted last year that the project lasted four years, cost $50 million and led to the publication of over 200 papers. The papers, including “Incorporating Human Cognitive Biases in a Probabilistic Model of Retweeting,” “Structural Properties of Ego Networks,” and “Sentiment Prediction using Collaborative Filtering,” make the thrust of the program perfectly clear. Social media users are lab rats being carefully scrutinized by government-supported researchers, their tweets and Facebook posts and Instagram pictures being analyzed to determine how information spreads online, and, by implication, how the government and the military can use these social media networks to make their own propaganda “go viral.”

As worrying as this research is, it pales in comparison to the knowledge that governments, militaries and political lobby groups are already employing squadrons of foot soldiers to wage information warfare in the social media battlespace.

AL-JAZEERA ANCHOR: The Pentagon’s got a new plan to counter anti-American messages in cyberspace. It involves buying software that will enable the American military to create and control fake online personas—fake people, essentially—who will appear to have originated from all over the world. The plan is being undertaken by CENTCOM (US Central Command), and the objective of the online persona management service is to combat enemy propaganda by influencing foreign social media websites. CENTCOM has hired a software development company called “Ntrepid,” and, according to the contract, the California-based company will initially provide 50 user licenses, each of which would be capable of controlling up to 10 fake personas. US law forbids the use of this type of technology, called “sockpuppets,” against Americans, so all the personas will reportedly be communicating in languages like Arabic, Persian and Urdu.

CTV ANCHOR: So is it okay to have the government monitor social media conversations and then to wade in and correct some of those conversations? With more on this, let’s go to technology expert Carmi Levy. He’s on the line from Montreal. Carmi, do you think the government’s monitoring what you and I are saying right now? Is this whole thing getting out of line, or what?

CARMI LEVY: It opens up a bit of a question. I’d like to call it a Pandora’s box about, you know, what exactly is the government’s aim here, and what do they hope to accomplish with what they find out? And as they accumulate this information online—this data on us—where does that data go? And so I think as much as we should applaud the government for getting into this area, the optics of it are potentially very Big Brother-ish. And the government really does need to be a little bit more concrete on what its intentions are and how it intends to achieve them.

4WWL REPORTER: New evidence that government-owned computers at the Army Corps of Engineers office here in New Orleans are being used to verbally attack critics of the Corps comes in an affidavit from the former editor-in-chief of nola.com. Jon Donley, who was laid off this past February, tells us via satellite from Texas, in late 2006 he started noticing people presenting themselves as ordinary citizens defending the Corps very energetically.

JON DONLEY: What stuck out, though, was the wording of the comments was in many ways mirroring news releases from the Corps of Engineers.

SANDY ROSENTHAL: These commenters tried to discredit these people . . .

4WWL REPORTER: And when Rosenthal investigated, she discovered the comments were coming from users at the internet provider address of the Army Corps of Engineers offices here in New Orleans. She blamed the Corps for a strategy of going after critics.

 ROSENTHAL: In the process of trying to obscure the facts of the New Orleans floodings, one of their tactics was just verbal abuse.

NAFTALI BENNETTMo’etzet Yesha, in conjunction with My Israel, has arranged an instruction day for Wiki editors. The goal of the day is to teach people how to edit in Wikipedia, which is the number one source of information today in the world. As a way of example, if someone searches the Gaza flotilla, we want to be there. We want to be the guys who influence what is written there, how it’s written, and to ensure that it’s balanced and Zionist in the nature.

These operations are only the visible and publicly-admitted front of a vast array of military and intelligence programs that are attempting to influence online behaviour, spread government propaganda, and disrupt online communities that arise in opposition to their agenda.

That such programs exist is not a matter of conjecture; it is mundane, established, documented fact.

In 2014, an internal document was leaked from GCHQ, the British equivalent of the NSA. The document, never intended for public release, was entitled “The Art of Deception: Training for a New Generation of Online Covert Operations” and bluntly stated that “We want to build Cyber Magicians.” It then goes on to outline the “magic” techniques that must be employed in influence and information operations online, including deception and manipulation techniques like “anchoring,” “priming” and “branding” propaganda narratives. After presenting a map of social networking technologies that are targeted by these operations, the document then instructs the “magicians” how to deceive the public through “attention management” and behavioural manipulation.

That governments would turn to these strategies is hardly a shocking development. In fact, the use of government shills to propagate government talking points and disrupt online dissent has been openly advocated on the record by high-ranking government officials for the past decade.

In 2008, Cass Sunstein, a law professor who would go on to become Obama’s information “czar,” co-authored a paper entitled “Conspiracy Theories,” in which he wrote that the “best response” to online “conspiracy theories” is what he calls “cognitive infiltration” of groups spreading these ideas.

“Government agents (and their allies) might enter chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine percolating conspiracy theories by raising doubts about their factual premises, causal logic or implications for political action. In one variant, government agents would openly proclaim, or at least make no effort to conceal, their institutional affiliations. […] In another variant, government officials would participate anonymously or even with false identities.”

It is perhaps particularly ironic that the idea that government agents are actually and admittedly spreading propaganda online under false identities is, to the less-informed members of the population, itself a “conspiracy theory” rather than an established conspiracy fact.

Unsurprisingly, when confronted about his proposal, Sunstein pretended to not remember having written it and then pointedly refused to answer any questions about it.

LUKE RUDKOWSKI: My name is Bill de Burgh from Brooklyn College, and I know you’ve written many articles. But I think the most telling one about you is the 2008 one called “Conspiracy Theories,” where you openly advocated government agents infiltrate activist groups of 9/11 Truth and also stifle dissent online. I was wondering why do you think it’s the government’s job, or why do you think the government should go after family members who have questions and 9/11 responders who are lied to about the air, survivors whose testimony conflicts, and also government whistleblowers that were gagged because they released information that contradicts the official story.

CASS SUNSTEIN: I think it was Ricky who said I’d written hundreds of articles and I remember some and not others. That one I don’t remember very well. I hope I didn’t say that. But whatever was said in that article, my role in government is to oversee federal rule-making in a way that is wholly disconnected from the vast majority of my academic writing, including that.

RUDKOWSKI: I just want to know is it safe to say that you retract saying that conspiracy theories should be banned or taxed for having an opinion online. Is it safe to say that?

SUNSTEIN: I don’t remember the article very well. So I hope I didn’t say either those things.

RUDKOWSKI: But you did and it’s written. Do you retract them?

SUNSTEIN: I’m focused on my job.

Now, a decade on from Sunstein’s proposal, we know that military psyops agents, political lobbyists, corporate shills and government propagandists are spending vast sums of money and employing entire armies of keyboard warriors, leaving comments and shaping conversations to change the public’s opinions, influence their behaviour, and even alter their mood. And they are helped along in this quest by the very same technology that allows the public to connect on a scale never before possible.

Technology is always a double-edged sword, and sometimes it can be dangerous to wield that sword at all. There are ways to identify and neutralize the threat of online trolls and shills, but the phenomenon is not likely to go away any time soon.

Each of us must find our own answer to the question of how best to incorporate these technologies into our life. But the next time you find yourself caught up in an argument with an online persona that may or may not be a genuine human being, it might be better to ask yourself if your efforts are better spent engaging in the argument or just turning off the computer.
