Nearly Half Of The Twitter Accounts Discussing ‘Reopening America’ May Be Bots
CMU Researchers Say Sophisticated, Orchestrated Bot Campaigns Aim To Sow Divide


They are not Russian Bots or foreign bots of any kind.  The only place bots that promote the re-opening of America come from is America itself.

No one said they are Russian bots. Although the aims of Russian money and big American money are pretty congruent these days.

If you do a search for Russian you will find it on the page.  You are right 'No one said they are Russian bots.' That is the art of it.

"Russian and Chinese playbooks"

So? Are you saying their assertion is wrong?

Force me to take a stand why don't you.  Yes, I will say their assertion is wrong.  I will also say that is the only way they could get their article published.

Well, about that. Preoccupation with surveillance had distorted my professional and personal life. I had balked at the main gate of Disney World when I realized I would have to scan a fingerprint and wear a radio-tagged wristband everywhere in the park. My partner, Dafna, standing with our 7-year-old son, dared me with her eyes to refuse. I caved, of course. I brought my laptop almost everywhere I went, even on beach and hiking trips. I refused to leave my bag at coat checks at parties. The precautions I took to protect my electronics inconvenienced my friends and embarrassed my family. “You’re moving further and further into a world that I’m not a part of, and that I don’t understand and I don’t want to be a part of,” Dafna said one night. I had not come to terms, until that moment, with how abnormal my behavior had become. I never felt safe enough.

Yes, It is good to read of someone else's experience.  I have his story about watching a command line window reinstall a new kernel on his Macbook beat.  I watched them work on two computers simultaneously.  I had two laptops on at the same time.  I don't think Barton expressed how chilling this sort of thing is well enough.  The hair on the back of my neck stood up.  If I had had no hair on the back of my neck I would have grown some on the spot so it could stand up.  My shoulders and upper arms were cold.

And on it goes.  I stayed away from Kunstlers' site for three weeks.  Then Kunstler posted a Russia-Gate piece two weeks ago and it totally pissed me off.  Fucker works for the deep state himself and he complains about intrusions into liberty.  If I think about this too much my eyes will roll back and I will start to drool.  There would be something wrong with me if you did not know this is personal.

So I'm back there for a while.  The state likes me there because they know exactly what I am doing.  Since they are reading this I can remind them that they know exactly what I am doing so chill the fuck out.

Because the operation there has been going on so long and because I know most regular commenters there are state actors who come and go they may think they know what I am doing and I make their stats look good, but they are telling me far more than I am telling them.   :exp-evil:

The story is ongoing.  Do they know exactly what I am up to?

I'm smiling and I'm all alone.  I almost want to laugh.  The story is not over.  They are watching me for life and I'll be pissed for life.

The file names specify “non-public investigative techniques” and “non-public details about techniques and procedures that are otherwise known to the public.” The FBI is especially concerned about protecting one unspecified intelligence-gathering method.

Quote
The bureau wants to protect “the nature of the information gleaned by its use.”

Total control which guarantees our fall off the Seneca Cliff.  Conservative assholes whose current sworn duty is to protect Trump and maintain empire.  Men who do not think deep and follow their orders without question.  Atrophied mechanisms of social change.  That is what all this gives us.  If we had any democratic institutions at all, now daddy knows best so you can kiss those dreams of a better world goodbye; at least until things get so bad they can't keep up.  But then it is too late. 

It is too bad that the system was not in place in 1930 Germany.  The Nazi Party would never had more than 20 members.  Hitler would have found himself with all sorts of credit problems and assorted bad lucks.  He would have died as a broke house painter from alcoholism in about 1950.  He did not drink you say?  They would have fixed that.

It is possible that Brandon thinks all they do is investigate and watch.  It is possible I'm even 'out there enough' now so all I will ever experience in the future are occasional indications that I'm being watched. 

I started my own website and came to the Diner.  If K-Dog gets taken out now a dozen people could notice.  That is why I did started chasingthesquirrel and came here.  Not that it would matter but now the paperwork would cost and that likely keeps me safe.  But that is not how it was when this all started.  I was a name on scattered blog posts without a real face.  I'm not talking about the dog pic, you know what I mean..  I was nobody.  Now I'm a nobody but a bigger nobody.  Had I become a grease spot then, before I was more well known the paperwork would have been easy with very few lose ends to tie up.  Now things would be far more complicated so I'm less likely to get any more obedience school treatment.  I hope.

Freaking out at Disneyland and while in other security systems.  Been there and done that in spades!  It can still happen but now I manage far better.  Trauma for life but adjustment to it for life too.  Optimism is forced on me.  Relax I tell myself, they know you are no threat.  So they know exactly where you are right now.  What's the big deal.  They usually do anyway so how is this any different?

Thanks dad.



* And thank you Surly1.  Reading this has been therapeutic.  Sanity moves our minds away from the unpleasant and it was chilling now to be reminded how much they had affected me when the action was hot and heavy those years ago.  It strengthens my resolve and stokes my anger.  I survived but that is no credit to them.  For that I take full credit.  The system would be happier with me smoking meth in a homeless camp.  If they can push you in that direction, they will.  It turns out I have a strong mind. 

I wish they did not hate doomers so much.

For More Information Byron Spice | 412-268-9068 | bspice@cs.cmu.edu Virginia Alvino Young | 412-268-8356 | vay@cmu.edu

Yeah right.  Bots are busy for sure.  They show up to attack my website in direct proportion to how much hell I'm raising online.  Moldova, Ukraine, the center of the US and other large server farms.  But since I write my own code there is very little they can do.  Denial of service but that is obvious so we can't have that.  That stirs the pot.  They are looking for stuff and probing for ways of taking control.  Standard procedure.  Making a list and checking it twice.  Like Santa.

In code one could imagine a function where you send info about a bot and it returns the identity of the bot.  But how do you know it is true?  I don't think Byron or Virginia have a clue and I think I do.

It is a funny thing.  Media can rant about the deep state being at odds with Trump but the marching orders of the uniformed contingent is to promote Trumps policies like it or not.  To protect the existing order and defend the empire.  That is what the military does.  I'll cut to the chase with the smoking gun example.

The commander of an Aircraft Carrier had to take it in the shorts because that is what big daddy wanted.  It is like Trump got to walk around the bowels of the big boat turning knobs and spinning wheels at will without anyone able to stop him.  After he leaves a room and moves on to fresh equipment somewhere else, some things might get turned back maybe.  But Trump gets his way.  It is institutionalized.  Quash dissent regardless of other considerations because that is your mission.  Agree or not Trump is in charge.  Promote Trumps policies and suppress dissent.  That is the brutal truth Mr. Specialist 4th class.  Would you like to review the UCMJ?  You follow orders and if you have a problem with your orders you take it up the chain of command after you do your duty.  You get it?

They are not Russian Bots or foreign bots of any kind.  The only place bots that promote the re-opening of America come from is America itself.

And nothing else would make any damn sense anyway.  If bots are promoting the reopening of America it is your tax dollars at work.  I have made these conclusions watching what trolls are doing.  Their orders are clear.  Suppress dissent.  I don't expect this to be as obvious to anyone else.  Some people don't believe a troll army even exists.  I know otherwise.  Bots would just be part of the package.  It's only obvious.

If you do contact Byron or Virginia use your Proton Mail account.  That should buy you abut thirty seconds.

The research team cannot point to specific entities behind the orchestrated attempts to influence online conversations. "We do know that it looks like it's a propaganda machine, and it definitely matches the Russian and Chinese playbooks, but it would take a tremendous amount of resources to substantiate that," Carley said.    <-- A wise policy.  Get around to it later!

We do know that it looks like it's a propaganda machine  <-- A broken alarm clock could not make a statement more pussified than this.

Yeah, that is what it looks like but we can't be sure can we?  I'm hearing if I want to blame the Ruskies you will be fine with it.  Empire forever.

Not that I can blame you.  They have nukes.

It is too easy for ballots not to make it in 'on time'.  This has happened to me twice.  The last time I mailed in my ballot  I mailed it two days before it was due and a postcard back said that my ballot had not been received in time to be counted.  Now I don't trust the mail and drive to the drop box in front of the King County election building.  RE was with me last time I was there.  That is where we made the video of me voting for Bernie.

Ironic, Trump has to pretend to be concerned about fraud to get people out so they can participate in the economy and catch Covid.  That is what this is about.  To get people out and build up herd immunity because the Turd knows America was stupid enough to vote for him once and they will do it again. 

The irony is Republicans love mail in voting.  Mail in voting strongly favors the affluent.  The affluent have stable addresses to begin with, addresses that don't get 'lost' in the system.  What you moved two years ago and forgot to tell us?  But there is more to it than that.  If you don't consider issues and vote a strict party line you won't forget to mail your ballot in.  You open it up, fill it out and turn it around.  If you have to consider issues and check things out the chances of you forgetting to finish in time is significant enough to guarantee many a Republican victory.  Mail in voting favors the follower and the brain dead.  I am not a fan.

But considering the circumstances we should do mail in voting this year.  The up side knocks down the down side.

I always wondered why Republicans always vote more than others do but it is clear that their decisions are easy.  Voting for them is akin to taking a dump.  The Candidate Has a 'R' next to the name.  Check the box or fill in the circle.  You are done.

Lately, I have noticed a gap between those statistics reported by the Johns Hopkins website and Worldometers as regards US stats. I noted this in my last blog post. the delta seems to be widening. Does anyone understand why this should be?

Here's a screenshot of there Worldometers site as reported for yesterday. Note the US stats.



Now here are this morning's stats from Johns Hopkins for the US.



Johns Hopkin s stats are now pretty significantly lower. I can't find any reason why this should be, such as a change in methodology or the ump admin's meaty thumb on a scale somewhere.

Any thoughts?

A few weeks ago I noticed the Johns Hopkins update pattern was getting weird.  For the total to actually go down by a few which it did a few times yet still have an update cycle slow enough for any particular total to sit for hours clearly was not reflecting reality.

But don't forget this is not China and our government would never put pressure on a medical institution to fudge numbers.  That can't happen here.

It's the voter who votes for that kind of dangerous blundering populist that we need to grok...

People are easily manipulated and pride prevents the admission necessary to take preventative steps.

How many people can spell preventative?  I'm being serious, the Dunning–Kruger effect is in play.  People will let other people do their thinking for them and in their naive optimism not understand that they give their power away and will always suffer and be taken advantage of in the the exchange.  People raised to believe in win-win become snacks to those who believe in you-lose.

The answer you seek is one of these:

Quote
We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

People don't have an App for thinking these days and people who don't think always need a leader.  They need a touchstone to give them answers that they are too lazy to get for themselves.  An empty void yawns before them and in the terror of infinite insignificance they will kill for a leader.  Otherwise life just hurts too much.  It is how their brain is wired and people never question how their brain is wired.

Leaders come in many forms.  And for some non-thinkers there are so many gods to worship in the Hollywood pantheon they can't get to them all.

I have a bit of personal good fortune if conditioning by early abuse can be called good fortune.  Like a dog who has been kicked I have always been reluctant to put my trust in a leader or to emulate and adore any particular person too much.  Lack of trust gave me a social immunity from exploitation of a sort.  I seem to have got just the right balance in my random walk.

The good fortune was that I did not have to have my world turned upside down when I realized that 'following a leader' is a pervasive form of arrested development in an atrophied culture.  Adults are supposed to think for themselves.  Adults should value thinking for themselves so much that their vanity would not persuade them they are thinking and knowledgeable when they are in fact, being total ignorant dumbfucks.  But that is not America.

An average person who has been following people all their life is not going to stop following.  To stop they would have to admit how empty they are and nobody wants to do that.  Americans only do what they want.  That is how one of my gang stalkers put it to me. 'Americans only do what they want.  You can't make them do anything!'  For me understanding that human nature seeks slavery was not an admission that destroyed my self-esteem so I am able to see and admit the truth.

But the rest of you can call me crazy.  And that is Ok, I understand.

So...if you want to hear a Jungian psychoanalyst give his opinion about Hitler and his psyche, you might expect him or her to describe Hitler through the lens of Jungian psychoanalysis.  Duh.

I've watched the video.....a long time ago now, so I'm not about to get caught up in the details.....but this is just another bullshit cheap takedown piece. There have been many books written about the psychopathology of Hitler...and all of them were written after he was dead. They have wildly different takes on the man, and there is no one of them that it right or wrong...they are all speculative.

Peterson is a man with great intellectual curiosity who has given a lot of thought to a lot of subjects...and he has strong opinions, not all of which I agree with. But this silly article is just another biased takedown that basically says he shouldn't comment because he isn't an expert. It trots out some basic facts (that even I know) about the Nazis and builds a straw man argument. Do you think JP doesn't know the Nazis enslaved the Jews? He isn't that ignorant, I can assure you.

I'm so tired of this whole subject, and tired of people who have to read Medium to know what they're supposed to think.

Wake up in de-mornin and you got to do.

A video of Peterson in his classroom.  Internet surveillance.  We don't know what kind of students he was teaching that day or if Peterson ate breakfast.  We lack context.  True I wrote what he said about Hitler made no sense and I'm right about that, but are we all going to be judged by our senior moments now?

Good Grief!

Peterson deserves half of the criticism he gets.  He engages mouth before brain frequently but a lot of us do that and we are not stupid.  The other half he gets because he dares to represent traditional values as being valuable.  Men who suck cock don't like that.  Men who have their dicks cut off and pretend they are women don't like that.  A particular kind of man hating lesbian hates traditional PATRIARCHY with a rawness that can only mean serious daddy issues.  Men who have no intention of ever getting serious about the business of life don't like him.  Lots of people don't like Jordan.

Mostly for self-serving reasons because Peterson is an affront to the cult of me.

I dedicate this song to him.  I look at JP like a little brother.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/spGFdXGMw58" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/spGFdXGMw58</a>

Traditional values are not so bad as long as you adopt live and let live as a core value. 

To find peace with the Jordan Peterson puzzle just appreciate him as a great storyteller.  You always have to check the facts of a great storyteller out on your own and if you find out he was wrong it was still fun.  Within the range of Psychology he has personally studied he should be respected.

Last October I was approached by a 'Q'.  I'm pretty sure he was planted to chat me up on purpose and see where I was coming from.  He gave me a business card which had a few website addresses on it.  I checked them out.

Do you guys know about the CERN laboratory Devil worship ritual?  I didn't.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/dZAQNo9bXwI" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/dZAQNo9bXwI</a>

I did not watch this.  I just posted it for cred.

The website I went over with a fine tooth comb and my conclusion is 'Q' is an American surveillance operation.  What these fuckers won't do to get paid ain't much.

It was a comprehensive and finely detailed compendium of every conspiracy theory you can imagine except for the Sumerian Lizard People which only I know about.  No crazy or lone sane person cool as a cucumber or mad as a hatter could have put the website together.  That was the flaw.  It was too good.  It was a group effort.  It was a group effort at a website that was not represented as such.  Then I realized what I was looking at.

I was looking at a fishing net.  Just about anyone who is touched has a pet conspiracy.  Some more than one.  They were throwing mud against the wall to see what would stick.  Nothing sticks with me since I am not crazy but if I did have a conspiracy I believed in besides the Sumerian Lizard People they could have hooked me.  I could have made someones' stats look good.



Divide and conquer.  If homeland security can get you talking about your freedoms, space aliens and fluoridated water you are absolutely no threat.  None at all.  And if that means giving a few ex-military people a pile of business cards and a list of people to run into by accident.  Well then.  That's the way it is.  The more they can get you thinking about phony problems the more you will ignore real problems and that is what power wants.

I don't care what a man has to do to feed his family.



The deep state now has their very own politician and she does not even know it.  That is serious irony.  Or, perhaps she knows exactly what is going on.  That would make me say calculated risk, too!

It is a triangle.  At one point on the triangle we have Trump. On another point of the triangle we have our perennial malcontents and idiots. They are always with us. Rebels who need no cause. People who spend an inordinate amount on hair products even when they have no hair.  The final point provides the balance to our centroid of despair. A nation that lost touch with its citizens. This toxic trio is the geometry of our doom.
