“The Force for Change,” The Use of Twitter During the Arab Spring as a Technological Beta Test for U.S. Intelligence Control of Public Opinion and Elections

Barack Obama and Eric Holder did not create a weaponized DOJ and FBI; the institutions were already weaponized by the Patriot Act.  What Obama and Holder did was take the preexisting system and retool it, so the weapons of government only targeted one side of the political continuum.

This point is where many people understandably get confused.

This article comes from Sundance who has made this case for years. A recent piece by Robert Malone corroborates Sundance’s assertions. Both of these essays should be mandatory reading for all concerned Americans. The new world is very much one of mass behavioral manipulation based on manipulation of information and information sources. There is no possible way to be clear about politics or sociology today without having a deep understanding of how this manipulation works. Consider covid news sources during the pandemic. The best, most accurate and truthful sources were small sites such as ABN and independent individuals such as Robert Malone who were frequently featured on small sites. Small sites are small because they are honest and also because they are suppressed by social media, certainly not promoted by it. Malone’s voice was heard because many small sites promoted it. Humans more readily seek and register information if the signal is loud, or has strong “semiotic valence.” It took brains and courage to look past the loud signals coming from CDC and FDA to the quieter but more truthful signals coming from Sundance or Robert Malone. This is a principle of novel information today that we must understand and work with. ABN

Twitter is a Weapon, not a Business: In the information war, nothing is what it seems, and your mind is the battleground ~ Robert Malone


There are some key things that people need to understand about social media in general, and Twitter in particular. Most know that essentially all of these platforms are basically deployed as intelligence gathering tools. That is one of their primary functions. What they do not know is that Twitter and some of the others have capabilities which make them more appropriately categorized as Cyber Weapons. These Cyber Weapons target human and group behavior and thought. They are deployed by industry, governments, non-governmental organizations, intelligence agencies, anyone who can afford to pay.

First off, please recognize that if you are using a cell phone to communicate in any region with multiple cell phone towers, your precise location can be readily identified by signal triangulation. And of course that can then be coupled with high resolution satellite imaging. If you are using a social media tool in that environment, then who you are, what you are concerned about, and where you are in space is all public information and can be readily determined. And here is where things get even more interesting. The Arab Spring protests were most definitely used as a test bed for these capabilities.

The emotional content of your social media communications can be abstracted. Not just what you are “tweeting”, but your underlying feelings, and the strength of those feelings. And, through your connections, you can be positioned in a cloud map as an influencer, outlier, follower etc. within your group of connections. These maps have proven useful to identify those who are shaping the behavior of factions or crowds (including flashmobs). Those individuals who are shaping crowd behavior in ways which the manipulating organization wishes to increase can be amplified using social media algorithms to further drive the crowd behavior in the desired direction, and those shaping behavior in undesirable directions can be suppressed. Because of the geospatial location capabilities, individuals can also be physically targeted using kinetic weapons or other assets if so desired. Think drone missile strikes, and decentralized drone clouds.

The algorithmic manipulations of communication which so many of us have observed during the COVIDcrisis are merely a small component of the overall cyber weapon capabilities of Twitter and other “social media” communication platforms (Tic Tock, Telegram, Facebook, etc.). Multilingual analytical capabilities are now routinely deployed in “elections” all over the world, in protests and “color revolution”-type movements (I suspect including in some of the protest movements over the last few years in the USA), and for mundane commercial activities like selling drugs and (of course) vaccines. This Cyber Warfare technology is values and ethics neutral. It can be used to advance agendas which may seem good or evil. In my opinion, any and all of this intentional manipulation of human thought and emotions is evil, just to be clear. The power of this technology, when deployed, appears to make abstract human concepts such as freedom, sovereignty, ethics and individual autonomy obsolete.

I leave you with selected slides (many years old now) from my old client Behavior Matrix. These are “public”, as opposed to the confidential and/or classified summaries that I have seen which go much deeper into the technology. And Behavior Matrix was just one of many examples of firms that have developed similar capabilities. I offer these so that you can get some sense of the power of the technology which has been developed and is being further enhanced in the present.

In conclusion, please do not be naïve. None of this is “fair”. None of it is “right”. None of it is “Proper”. It is way, way off base from what we thought were the accepted rules for engagement in a representative republic such as ours. Rules and social contract relationships between the government and the governed, the Administrative state and the free citizens which it was intended to serve, which are centuries old. And in the case of the alliance between the US Government and Big Tech, it is clearly a violation of the first amendment of the US Constitution as well as a vehicle for furthering totalitarian control of one political group over their political opponents.

Mattias Desmet is correct, third party actors allied with big tech are very actively manipulating information and seeking to shape your thought and behavior, and put you under a form of mass hypnosis which they control. And these third party actors include the Democratic party of the United States, the Obama and most specifically the Biden administrations.

I have taken a long quote from a longer article. The quote is sort of the bottom line but the whole article is extremely valuable and something we all have to understand. All emphases are Malone’s except a short one in red which is mine: “individuals can also be physically targeted.” This is something I know to be a fact, no question about it. This kind of violence can come from “friends” or associates who are agents of some nefarious group that does not like what you represent. Their weapons include anything you can think of, including poison, psychosurgery, targeted energy weapons, reputation destruction, jail-bait schemes, etc. I am glad to see Malone knows this and writes about it. There are few of us who openly speak of this very dark and dangerous side of Western society. One gruesome aspect of targeted harming at the individual level is it generally works better if the individual is left alive, not killed. This is because living casualties are a depressing burden on their communities and a powerful tool in mass mind-control since their debilities will be viewed as existential warnings that whatever they were doing leads to a bad outcome.

China and USA Are Officially At Economic War – Technology Restriction Overview

Today [Oct 8] the US government levied new export regulations and restrictions against China that amount to a full-scale bilateral economic cold war. We will break down the impact and affected companies, but the actions were a long time coming. China intensified its covert economic warfare in the last decades through state-sponsored corporate espionage, state-sponsored hacking, dumping, and draconian restrictions for market access. The US is now responding with its salvo of restrictions to market access in semiconductors, telecommunications, optics, and AI.

There were two main sets of regulatory actions taken today. The first is a new ruling on new export controls for advanced computing, semiconductor manufacturing, and the general semiconductor supply chain. The other is adding 31 companies to the unverified list and modifying how companies on the unverified list must be treated. Both these changes will shift the landscape of technology and industry and reduce global trade by hundreds of billions of dollars a year.

Add this to blowing up Nord Steam 2 and it’s clear Biden’s handlers are flexing at the very least or pushing for more. It’s too early to say they are starting WW3 but these are people who do not back down even when they are being reckless. They almost certainly did covid and certainly did the covid response disaster, both of which harmed the West greatly while facilitating election theft, so I put nothing past them. Don’t be surprised if emergency war powers is this year’s October surprise. ABN

Ukraine: Putin says Germany made ‘mistake’ to side with NATO

Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a press conference in the Kazakh capital of Astana Friday that Germany had made a “mistake” in siding with NATO in the war in Ukraine.

He claimed that the decision to cancel the Nord Stream 2 pipeline was a German one and that it was an error to prioritize NATO and European security over what Moscow believes to be Germany’s national interest.

“German citizens, businesses, and its economy are paying for this mistake, because it has negative economic consequences for the eurozone as a whole, and in Germany,” he said, in reference to Nord Stream 2.

Jeff Nyquist on Russian strategy, weaponry, and timeline in Ukraine war

The greatest foreign policy mistake in the world has been the West not forming an alliance with Russia or at least good relations. The fall of the Soviet Union was the best time to do that but Western forces raped Russia instead. Since that time 30 years have past, all wasted with bullshit against Russia even down to the micro-politics of Washington, DC and the lies of Russiagate. I place almost all blame on USA and the EU. Forming an alliance with Russia–a Top of the World alliance including Japan, Korea, and others–would have prevented the very dangerous situation we are in today and also guaranteed prosperity for all parties.

Jew Zuckerberg (Powerless, Victim) Blocks Kanye’s Account, Deletes Posts to Prove Jews Are Not Powerful

On Friday, Kanye West posted about powerful Jews on instagram, and now that Jew who runs instagram has silenced him in order to prove that he is wrong and Jews being powerful is an anti-Semitic hoax.

The earth-shaking post was a screenshot of a SMS exchange between West and rapper Puff Daddy. West told Puffy that he’s not going to be cowered by the Jews.

…I don’t want to sound hysterical, of course. But it’s unclear what else could happen at this point than for things to start really falling apart in earnest. The idea that this current “normal” of Brandon’s America is sustainable on really any timeframe is just simply absurd. You notice that after the Nord Stream bombing, people are no longer claiming that talking about World War III is “hysterical.” Brandon himself is out there saying we’re all going to get nuked. These people just do a terrorist attack inside of Russia.

Whitney Webb Interview – The Google AI Sentience Psyop

direct link

I finally had time to watch all of this and am disappointed in it. Webb brings up many good points and it is worth viewing but she is also missing the deep framework of what is truly going on. I will touch on that by describing what Eris Schmidt says and how she responds.

Schmidt is talking about a geopolitical conflict that presents questions such as: How do we deal with China? On Chinese AI and technological advancements, Schmidt says: “China is not a near-peer. It is a peer competitor. They are also now demonstrating quantum capabilities that we did not expect…” He goes on to list several other major Chinese tech advancements. What Schmidt is referring to here is our inevitable ineluctable competition with China across virtually all domains. This is the fundamental “game theory” of great powers. “Game theory” does not mean it is merely a “game,” or that it is something we can choose to participate in or not. This fundamental game theory is inescapably basic to top world power competition. This game/competition is extremely dangerous. Whoever wins will control the world. Schmidt asks, “How do we manage this?” meaning how do we manage competition with China. He answers by saying, “We don’t have a good answer but… we need groups to get together to agree on what the ethics in these areas should look like…. If we don’t do this, those decisions will be made by computer scientists like me… We need to make these decisions with the best minds that include non-computer scientists.” Webb misquotes and misconstrues what Schmidt is saying and then digs deep into the past to smear his ethics when Schmidt himself clearly said he wants to avoid having people “like me” making these decisions. Webb does not understand that increasingly advanced AI is inevitable and that someone will control it. That someone will be some sort of configuration of people (and gangs) in the West, in China, in Russia or India or some other place. No one has a choice in whether this happens or not. Each player must strive for total control because there is no other option. Right now, in Schmidt’s implied view if the West loses, China wins. Beyond this fundamental frame, which is all-important in this discussion, I share many of Webb’s fears about governmental totalitarian control. ABN

Mattias Desmet: The Attempt to Burn Me at the Stake

In recent weeks, an offensive has been launched against me in the Flemish media. I’ve been accused of being a liar, a far-right extremista conspiracy theorist, controlled opposition, and of indoctrinating my students. I’ve quietly listened to every voice that felt called to make itself heard. And I have the impression that everyone who had something to say has now done so.

Now I’m going to say a word for myself.

I think I have some right to respond to a story about myself. Members of the media apparently disagree. As eagerly as they speak of me, they have obstinately refused to speak to me. But isn’t it a fundamental precept of humanity—that everyone has the right to tell their side of the story?

Granted, the media has had a certain inhibition about me for some time. For example, there was an uncomfortable silence in the press when my book The Psychology of Totalitarianism was translated into ten languages ​​earlier this year and sold tens of thousands of copies.

Why such silence? Perhaps for this reason: people might start to take seriously the idea that the corona crisis was primarily a psycho-social phenomenon that marked the transition to a technocratic system, a system in which the government would attempt to claim decision-making rights over its citizens and, step by step, take control of all private space.

Consider this in light of global game theory. Top players–USA, China, Russia, maybe India–do not know what their adversaries have or are capable of doing. Which of them will be first to make a quantum computer that can break all current digital passwords. Or which of them has some other weapon or means of global control. Since none of them–and there could be other top players–knows what their adversaries have or are capable of, all of them are forced to engage in some form of unrestricted warfare. You could say there is nothing new in that, all of history has had that condition and that would be true enough, but the speed of technological change today makes it different. Today, it is a much more dangerous game with stakes higher than they have ever been before. The heart of this KOBK geopolitical game is zero-sum, unrestricted war in the face of profound and dire uncertainty. This the deep reason almost anyone with a significant voice is silenced or behaves with apparent (or real) confusion and ignorance. Desmet, and those of us who have listened to him, knows something very dangerous is looming. Consider what he says in light of the conditions facing the top global players. It seems clear to me that there is no escape for them from this game. Top players cannot form trusted alliances with each other because they cannot have anything even approaching perfect knowledge of their partners. Therefore, all of them are forced into a melee of unrestricted war. Including unrestricted warfare against their own citizens. That is what is happening now and not something else. ABN

Taiwan Will Treat China Flights Into Airspace as ‘First Strike’

Taiwan warned it would treat any Chinese incursion into the island’s airspace as a “first strike,” as Taipei seeks to deter Beijing from ratcheting up military pressure around the island. 

Defense Minister Chiu Kuo-cheng told lawmakers in Taipei that the ministry was taking such incursions more seriously after a recent spate of closer flights by Chinese warplanes and drones. Pressed on whether any warplane’s violation of Taiwan’s airspace would be viewed as a first strike, Chiu said, “Yes,” without elaborating what the response would be.

“In the past, we said we won’t be the first to strike, which meant we won’t do it without them firing artillery shells or missiles, et cetera, first,” Chiu said Wednesday. “But now the definition has obviously changed, as China used means like drones. So we have adjusted, and will view any crossing of aircraft or vessels as a first strike.”
