    A Foreign Service Officer just told me "Tillerson is tired, frustrated and very unhappy.

    It's not a question of if he leaves but when".

    WHY.....US FP is being driven by Bannon and Trump's son-in-law.......

    Someone should do an analysis of American companies doing business in Russia, especially in energy, and donating to House GOP leadership and to the Trump campaign.

    The list would be rather long and would surprise a lot of people as well as the sheer amounts of money beig passed around....

    Trumps meme actually came from Reddit.....REALLY worth reading ..........

    Trump's CNN body-slam video appears to have gained traction from a controversial Reddit user
    http://www.businessinsider.de/trump-...ffer&r=US&IR=T

    On Sunday morning, the Reddit user celebrated that Trump had tweeted out his meme: "Wow!! I never expected my meme to be retweeted by the God Emporer himself!!!"

    Many in the subreddit, which has over 441,000 members, took it as validation that the president reads the pro-Trump community that has long promoted alt-right views attacking Islam, minorities, and immigrants. HanA--holeSolo is a frequent participant of such conversations.
    In the past, r/The_Donald's have aggressively gamed Reddit's algorithms to see pro-Trump content rise to the top of the site, and have sometimes engaged in abusive behavior against the volunteer moderators and members of other communities on the site — causing significant disruption. In December, Reddit promised reforms to crack down on its most abusive members in the wake of attacks on its CEO.
    Reminder: 28 people were injured in a shooting at an Arkansas club.

    POTUS has attacked the media again. He remains silent on the shooting.

    This is the guy who created the meme Trump tweeted out today. Trump's making him a celebrity in his online circles.

    BREAKING: Twitter declares Trump's tweet depicting him brutally assaulting "CNN" is within its Terms of Service. All journalists, take note.

    Twitter lack of actions in the face of automated bots being used in information warfare and used by Russian trolls SOMEHOW never gets addressed.....

    Maybe it is that Russian oligarch investment into Twitter of 800M USDs....

    Trump has brilliantly changed the subject from “Is he a Russian intelligence asset” to “Is he a dangerously violent lunatic?"

    Default Thread closed for a Moderator's review

    Following a number of posts I have closed this thread to enable a review, which may take a couple of days.

    What is the theme here, the arena clearly shows this:
    Politics In the Rear National will and developments back home for the intervening nations.
    SWJ's Forum is not for political discussion; there are I expect being on "this side of the pond" many places in the USA that cater for that and I exclude Twitter etc. That is one reason we have survived and have considerable value to the 'Small Wars' community.

    We aim to be an 'online discussion board', not for individual(s) to dominate.

    Posts that refer to 'national will' etc should be retained, pending re-opening. If they appear elsewhere on SWJ they will be deleted.

    It seems that some at SWJ feel that the use by Russian info warfare is one discussion item BUT the use by the US President of the same tactics as the Russians and the intertwining of US al right ie white nationalist bots, and bot nets is not a discussion basis.....

    The accusations of Russian collusion whole still being investigated and not commented on by FBI SC Mueller although there are now 140 FBI investigators and 16 top flight Federal prosecutors should say a lot more than it seems to say to many Americans.

    BUT the threat and use of info warfare by Trump and his alt right supporters is just as dangerous as the use of Russian info warfare directed at the US.....

    RMEMBER Russian info warfare is composed of two key cornerstones....

    1. cyber warfare
    2. info warfare


    Here's an interesting thread - folks at /r/The_Donald discussing/helping one another with bot creation.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/The_Donald/...tting/#…

    NOTE...Trump twitter account "Followers" has increased 100,000 in under 24 hours...all automated bots created, paid for and managed not in the US....

    In order to fully understand Russian non linear warfare which actually supports Russian political warfare in this case fully directed at the US you must understand the eight phases of Russian non linear warfare....

    BUT the two key elements that support the eight phases we are seeing right now in the US.....and in Europe

    1. cyber warfare
    2. information warfare .....information warfare also has two parts
    a. weaponizing information in general meaning...completely distorting the term "Truth".....to actually mean to people FAKE.....or "alternative truth"
    b. weaponizing social media ie FB, Instrgram, Reddit, Twitter etc.

    The Russian non linear warfare has eight distinct phases. The first and second phases consist of non-military asymmetric warfare. They include information warfare, psychological, ideological, diplomatic, and economic measures, but also special operations conducted to mislead political and military leaders. Coordinated measures are carried out by diplomatic channels, media, top government and military agencies; they include leaking false data, orders, directives, and instructions. The third phase’s objective is to consolidate the first two, by intimidating, deceiving, or bribing government and military officers, with the objective of making them abandon their duties. The fourth phase is the one including the “polite green men”. It encompasses destabilizing propaganda to increase discontent among the population, boosted by the arrival of bands of militants to escalate subversion. Only with the fifth phase military action per se begins, although still in an indirect way. It consists of establishing no-fly zones over the country to be attacked, imposing blockades, and extensively using private military companies in close cooperation with armed opposition units. This is as far as events have progressed in Ukraine at this moment.

    The sixth phase is the beginning of employing direct military measures, with large-scale reconnaissance and subversive missions, including but not limited to special operations forces. The seventh phase is a combination of targeted information campaign, electronic warfare, and aerospace operations, combined with the use of high-precision weapons (long-range artillery, possibly weapons based on new physical principles, including microwaves, radiation/radiology, non-lethal biological weapons). The eighth phase’s aims are to roll over the remaining points of resistance and destroy surviving enemy units.
    Only when one fully understands the above and is fully able to process that say the President of the US has roughly 18M non human "Followers"...then you understand Russian non linear warfare.....

    If you fully understand and can actually see Trump and proTrump voters conducting info war even in the US against all those that do not support Trump......THEN you fully understand Russian non linear warfare.....THIs though requires one to jump over a shadow...the shadow that yes even Americans can be and are willingly controlled by Russian propaganda and misinformation....no questions asked.

    And that is inherently dangerous for US democracy.......and the core question is how is that possible.....

    To Make Your Conspiracy Theory Legit, Just Find an 'Expert'

    https://www.wired.com/2017/05/conspi...heory-experts/

    In some neighborhoods of the internet, all it takes to start a conspiracy theory is Photoshop, a webcam, and confidence. Susli—aka PartisanGirl—has thrived in that environment, parlaying a college chemistry degree and a series of conspiracy-minded YouTube videos into a new kind of internet authority. But when conspiratorial musings bubble up into the mainstream web or cable news, it’s not because Don Lemon or Ashleigh Banfield took PartisanGirl seriously. To make it in the major leagues, a conspiracy theory—or any other kind of hoax—has to find a voice with a mainstream claim to credibility. A voice like Postol's.

    Cynthia Storer‏ @CindyStorer
    The NRA is feeding an us vs them narrative of the kind that fuels all extremist movements. I should know.

    NOTE
    Cindy was a CIA terrorism analyst. She was the first to warn of Al-Qaeda in the early 90s. She developed the CIA's radicalization model.



    The NRA recruitment video that is even upsetting gun owners

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.b2f0a8b3c573

    But these are the opening lines of a new recruitment video by the National Rifle Association of America that is headlined by conservative television host Dana Loesch. The Blaze personality and NRA spokeswoman doesn’t hold back, painting a stark picture of the U.S. political climate that some have interpreted as an ad designed to provoke fear, if not incite violence.
    “I’m an old white guy and a life member, but this BS is disgusting,” Facebook user Eric Eugene Rush commented under the post. “When you spew crap like this, you don’t speak for me anymore. I try to avoid doing things on the spur of the moment, but I’ll be thinking about canceling my membership.”

    “Jeeeeesus … it almost looks like you’re encouraging violence against demonstrators,”

    Can anyone explain just why it is that Trump tends to use the same tactics as Russian info warfare especially the Russian 6Ds Propaganda Principles.....

    Distort...Deflect...Distract...Dismiss...ALL designed to create Doubt and Distrust.......


    So in this set of Trump tweets.......how many of the 6Ds is Trump actually using?????

    Why does a US President Resort to Russian info war tactics????

    @CNN's ratings are at a five-year high in several key categories

    Why is it important to understand the Russian non linear warfare...Putin has three strategic geo political goals in his political war with the US....

    1. damage and discredit NATO

    A possible fourth goal...completely disconnect US from Germany....

    With that in mind...does in fact Trump assist Putin in achieving these goals...????

    Valid point in that he drives his tweets as a form of info warfare using the Russian 6Ds Propaganda Principles of ......

    Distract......Distort...Deflect...Dismiss.......AL L designed to create Doubt and Distrust......
