Coordinated inauthentic behavior

"Red Lobster Drops Tucker Carlson After His Sexist Rants" (News Hound Ellen).  Big corporations drop 'Karl' Carlson when he becomes too populist/socialist (real left-populism is the biggest single fear of the establishments from both American parties), but the Clintonista 'left' wouldn't recognize socialism if it hit them in the face, so they ascribe the decision, as you would expect, to identity politics (as if Red Lobster would virtue-signal on that issue!).

For months now, Marshall has been intentionally muddling Ukraine and Russia so he can describe Manafort's connections to Ukrainians - and we've known these Manafort-Ukrainian connections all along - as the smoking gun evidence that Trump is 'colluding' with Putin.  He does this over and over and over again, and still expects people to pay to read this crap.  Here's an amusing example outside his paywall (note the 'Ed. Note', which completely ruins his thesis, but he carries on regardless of the 'switcheroo'!).  "The ‘Collusion’ Debate Ended Last Night".  RT takes this apart very nicely:  "Collusion with… Ukraine? NY Times corrects its bombshell ‘Russiagate’ report".  You'd have to laugh at these people if they weren't strenuously, and treasonously, trying to lie the US into WWIII (just as the (((same people))) lied the US into other Wars For The Jews).

Here's the 'correction' (shouldn't they have withdrawn the entire article once it's entire underpinning turned out to be the exact opposite of what they claimed?):
"A previous version of this article misidentified the people to whom Paul Manafort wanted a Russian associate to send polling data. Mr. Manafort wanted the data sent to two Ukrainian oligarchs, Serhiy Lyovochkin and Rinat Akhmetov, not to Oleg V. Deripaska, a Russian oligarch close to the Kremlin."
And 'journalists' wonder why nobody has any respect for them!

Tweet (WikiLeaks):
"New York Times corrects Manafort-Deripaska false story (it wasn't Deripaska) and says so. Guardian editor still hiding over Guardian's fabricated front page Manafort-Assange story which was stealth edited post-publication to conceal the direct assertion."
While Mueller and 'journalists' continue to dig a hole full of nothing looking for Putin-Trump 'collusion', real journalists (and hackers) continue to uncover real political skullduggery (in fact, the conspirators sold themselves to the British government by expressly promising to stir up anti-Russian sentiment! - this fits my thesis that the main underlying motivation of all this crap isn't an attack on Trump but an attack on Russia which they hope will lead to WWIII):  "New Documents Reveal a Covert British Military-Intelligence Smear Machine Meddling In American Politics" (Blumenthal/Ames).  Note how the British government thus sponsored Americans from both the extreme 'left' and extreme right, as long as they could be worked into an anti-Putin propaganda frenzy.  Also note the detail about removing the British military from democratic supervision, which is the neatest example of pure fascism anybody could come up with!

I didn't know about (((Ames))), always useful information.

"Shock Files: What Role Did Integrity Initiative Play in Sergei Skripal Affair?" (Klarenberg).  The Integrity Initiative was curiously ahead of its time in predicting the shape of the Skripal false flag (to be fair, a lot of the suggestions were not particularly novel).

The 'cluster' are 'influencers', usually with obvious Cold War or even intelligence agency backgrounds, who are supposed to appear to operate independently as they spread the propaganda messages generated by the intelligence agency, in this case MI6:  "Damaging Ties: Why Germany is the Integrity Initiative’s 'Most Important Target'" (Klarenberg).  This hack is less interesting in the details of the propaganda, or even the personal details of the politicians, than as a perfectly described example of how this kind of intelligence/PR operation actually operates.

"Summing up the Official Claims in the Salisbury Poisonings: Weighed in the Balances and Found Wanting" (Slane).  A competently run conspiracy - in this case, a false flag - should have a showrunner (who runs the whole conspiracy) and a treatment (setting out the basics of the Official Story, and anticipating possible problems and inconsistencies) and a script (with the details of the false flag).  Everything should be planned out so the Official Story can match the actual facts as closely as possible.  The Brits obviously didn't have any of this, and just tried to wing it, which meant they had to keep going back and re-rigging the Official Story, using their incurious 'journalists' and other assets like Bellingcat to retcon it as required.  The Magic Doorknob they came up with to attempt to save the day doesn't make any sense, and the Official Story doesn't even match the (very partial) CCTV coverage that has been released.  Any careful analyst like Slane can rip the whole thing to shreds.

Admiral Bolton and his fleet of yachts - the 'Thanks to Sheldon' the 'Shabbos-Goy', the 'Shlomo Schlepped This', the 'Vig', etc, - is having a rough ride in his Zionist Mystery Tour once he left the Golan.  "Turkey’s Erdogan snubs Bolton for support of Kurdish YPG: ‘He made a grave Mistake’".  "True to form".  It is interesting that Pompeo, a guy literally waiting for the Rapture, which he thinks requires the Zionist Empire to be built first, is toeing the Trump line, while Bolton goes around the Middle East acting like a mad man.  This is how you get the shekels without giving the machers exactly what they want.

"LinkedIn Co-Founder Who Bankrolled Russian Bot "False Flag" Also Funded Left-Wing Midterm Meddling" (Durden).  Note that this operation did exactly the same kind of vote-suppression that Democrats are always (correctly) accusing Republicans of.  That makes it impossible for Democrats to make a serious case that the Republicans have tricked their way to victory in other cases.
