‘Fake News’ Crusaders Caught Red Handed CREATING Russian Bots to BLACKLIST Conservatives

If you aren’t FURIOUS by the time you’re done reading this, you may want to check your pulse.

What a time to be alive, folks.  

I mean that with every ounce of sincerity and sarcasm that you could possibly imbue from that sentence.  We are living in a world that is evolving so rapidly before our very eyes that we may just lose sight of exactly what it means to be truthful.

Let’s not take that lightly.  Truth, the pursuit of it, and the dissemination of it, are the key principles to forming the basis of our very morality.  Without morality, we cannot have a society – or even a civilization.  Our entire history as a species, from the moment we woke up and began this adventure, was to seek the truth.

Now, thanks to layers of nuance, opinion, bias, greed, and hate, we have to dig for the truth.

Everyday, I wake up to stare into the abyss of this truth-seeking.  I can choose one topic for the day, let’s say its the border wall, and I can read about it on three different “news” websites.  What I glean from those three sites is a similar difference of realities to that of a gaggle of young children when you ask them who broke the window?

In short, the mainstream media, (which is funded by the same advertisers who can fund politicians through Citizens United), is playing a game of selective truth.  CNN tells us one thing.  Fox News, another.  Somewhere in the middle might be reality.

In the latest battle over the truth, (and how we find it), those in the media have ramped up their inexcusable bias to the umpteenth degree.  Spawned by their pure hatred for Donald Trump, this corporately controlled informational monopoly needed a plan to neuter his executive power during the 2018 midterms.

That plan?  Convince the American people that conservative leaning news and opinion sites were being weaponized by Russian “bots” in order to influence the coming election.  This was the narrative that spawned the “fake news” cavalcade on the left, as well as the sudden and abrupt glut of fly by night “fact checking” companies whose sole purpose was to tag conservative content creators with a Scarlet Letter, or a “demerit”, or a Red X…or whatever their imaginary rating system called for.

[Author’s note:  In the lead up to the 2018 midterms, I was bombarded with emails from these sort of companies, nitpicking the most asinine of metaphorical concerns about my writing.  Since the elections have ended, I have received not one inquiry.  That should tell us all about the motives behind this nonsense.]

Now, in an inexcusable and traitorous revelation, we have discovered that one of the main proponents of the “Russian bot” story was simply making it all up.  And, yes, these are the same folks that had several of my colleagues blacklisted for being “Russian bots”, thus effecting their ability to put food on the table.

Operatives with New Knowledge, a group affiliated with [Former President Barack Obama campaign organizer Mikey] Dickerson, created thousands of Twitter accounts posing as Russian bots to boost the election-year chances of Jones — the accounts began following Moore’s Twitter account in October 2017. The project created a slew of Facebook accounts as well that were designed to troll conservatives into opposing Moore.

But the misinformation project attracted attention from local and national media, falsely suggesting Russia was backing Moore’s candidacy. The Montgomery Advertiser, for one, was the first to cover the story using the Russian-bot angle. National media outlets quickly followed suit. (REPORT: Facebook Dings Dem Operatives Who Pulled A Fast One During Alabama Election)

“Roy Moore flooded with fake Russian Twitter followers,” read the headline on a New York Post story, which cited the Advertiser. WaPo focused its reporting on the fact that Moore blamed Democrats for the fake accounts. Other major national outlets picked up on the story shortly thereafter, with many pundits mocking Moore for blaming Democratic operatives.

The cost of the effort, which was funded by liberal billionaire Reid Hoffman, totaled $100,000 — the identical amount Facebook says the Russian Internet Research Agency spent trolling people on social media leading up to the 2016 presidential election. Dickerson, who has not responded to TheDCNF’s repeated requests for comment about the campaign, finally responded to reporters Monday.

This sort of “Red Scare” nonsense should have no place in American politics, but, yet…here it is, with Barack Obama’s name attached to it.

Worse still, the New Knowledge model directly affected the livelihoods of American political writers, cartoonists, satirists, and content creators at the behest of an Obama crony with no interest in finding the truth.  Rather, Dickerson and his posse of progressive meddlers were looking only for power, success, and the obliteration of the First Amendment.

This subversion of our right to free speech, through means of such a dastardly disinformation campaign must not go unpunished.  Otherwise, we have forfeited our First Amendment rights.

“Bias Response Teams” are Nullifying The First Amendment at Portland State

When free speech dies, so too does America herself.

first amendment

A terrifying new authority has arrived on the campus of Portland State, and their purpose is to police the language used anywhere on the property. The idea is simple enough:  If you or one of your colleagues finds yourself either offended, or concerned that someone else could be offended, by something that just occurred on campus, you can call the “Bias Response Team” to come “investigate”…or whatever it is that they do. Yes, this is a real thing, and not some dystopian, concept-opinion piece I’m trying out. Members of the campus community at Portland State better think twice about making a joke on campus — it could very well lead to their names being reported to the university’s bias response team. Two bias reports filed at the public institution last fall were against people making jokes or similar off-hand comments on campus, according to documents obtained by The College Fix through a public records act request. Just how bad were the jokes? In one case from last September, a student overheard someone in their classroom making a comment about sometimes feeling like they having schizophrenia. “She then stated she was not trying to make fun of schizophrenia,” the student reported, “but that sometimes she can be ‘schizophrenic.’ … She stated this in a joking manner and even laughed about it.” Now let’s look to the future, when you are perhaps looking for a job, or perhaps a career in politics, and your “bias response team” report finds its way to Wikileaks.  Now, instead of focusing on who stands before you today, you are either tainted by or forced to spend time explaining the situation that led to your being included in such a wildly subjective, yet somehow serious report. Worse still is that comedy is one of the last real safe harbors for free speech…

Americans are Turning Away from Mainstream Media’s Monsters

This media malady has maintained course for too long, and the American people are growing tired of it.

mainstream media

The division that we see in our current society is unacceptable, but the loud, crashing, rapid fire mortars of the mainstream media have us so disorientated that we cannot see it. At any time of the day, you could turn on the television and watch two grown adults shout at each other over politics.  There are channel after channel devoted to this very idea; that we can induce catharsis living vicariously through the talking heads on the television. At times, it is even barbaric.  There are nuclear moments that go viral, adding fuel to this fire of fervor and frenzy.  Then, these snippets get snatched out of context and weaponized on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. It has put us all at each other’s throats, and that is not what this great nation is all about. This media malady has maintained course for too long, and the American people are growing tired of it. A new poll shows trouble for the figurative tip of the mainstream media spear, CNN. Last place CNN’s already humiliating ratings nosedived by double digits last week. Even more than usual, some ten days ago the far-left CNN launched a 24/7 jihad against President Trump, going so far as to question his mental health, his patriotism, blaming him for a mass murder in New Zealand, and serial lying about his response to Charlottesville. But this unhinged hate campaign obviously turned off a considerable number of Americans. When compared to this same week last year, CNN lost -16 percent of its primetime viewers and -17 of total day viewers; young people ran away screaming: In the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo, CNN shed an incredible -31 percent of those viewers during primetime and -29 percent in total day. Even more telling still are the metrics available to us that compare CNN to their rival…
