Amazing how one man ties it together.
Citing Russophobia and his Russian wife finally securing a green card, the head of the California separatist movement calls it quits.

Also the same exact players were involved in the DEC BLM demo that turned to violence.....

Notice the trend...

BUT you ignored the way it then was played in European/US MSM...."a proTrump demonstration attacked by anti Trump protesters"....not a single mention anywhere of the neo Nazi element was there?

I find it interesting that right now on any given day virtually any of the well known white nationalist or white supremacist social media or blogsites carry at least one conspiracy myth started out of the Russian bot net and further pushed via RT or Sputnik.....then ending up in either Infowars and or Breitbart.com

And you do not find that "interesting"??
I find it off-topic.

For the record, Antifa and BAMN rioters arrived at the demonstration to commit violence and did so. Whereas in Europe, it is typically a one-sided affair when the “black bloc” lashes out, at Berkeley, they met their opposite numbers. The full video clip of Damigo punching the rioter clearly shows that she delivered an ineffective short-hand to his chest before he slugged her with a stiff right-punch to the jaw. To paraphrase Mercutio: “a plague on both their houses”.

While organized skinhead violence in the U.S. is concerning to you now, where have you been when “anti-Trump” rioters ran amok following the election?

As for the Kremlin, it will support whatever it feels like. Its support did not make the anti-Vietnam War or anti-nuclear weapons movements any less genuine during the Cold War, and it certainly does not diminish the aspirations of Western peoples to protect their sovereignty from supranational institutions, control their borders and undo the official multiculturalism and political correctness ideologies that have disrupted social cohesion.

To all readers of this thread….


I have been reading SWJ since 2004 when I first became aware of it…and I have since then contributed a few articles to it as well as FP…

But since the Russian military annexation of Crimea…their unleashing of non linear warfare with cyber and information warfare as it’s core and then their military invasion of Ukraine and their adventure into Syria in the name to defeat IS which we all know is a farce……

During the last two years I have posted roughly 30,000 posts on these two areas and then starting posting more and more information on Russian infor and cyber warfare.

Alone on the Ukrainian thread Views have in the last two years climbed to over 980,000 …the Syrian thread climbed in the same time to over 360,000. I also noted that in the last two months the Russian disinformation and hacking has climbed over 8,000 Views.

While it is hard to see if readers were looking/researching or just skimming through I am happy that they “viewed” anything as I have seen that basically a lot of what I posted never did make it into US MSM or if it did…then days later.

During this process I have learned the value of social media OSINT and the ability of conducting excellent information warfare using social media….and took pains to show how Russian info warfare was being conducted both in Ukraine and Syria….and developed along the way a working relationship with @bellingcat one of the best social media OSINT types going these days..actually produces better quality open reporting than anything I have previously seen in the IC which also uses OSINT...

Along the way I have bashed the Obama WH for basically changing the entire ME in the desire to tilt fully to Iran and for their apparent lack of a solid strategic strategy on virtually anything…and they walked away from engaging in the Ukraine…..the Obama WH was great smoke and mirrors machine and the US MSM never really challenged that…

We then transitioned to the Trump WH….and suddenly and truly we are seeing for the first time the somehat serious political theory of “Wag the Dog” in it’s full glory being applied to cover up for a total lack of any strategy on anything other than “tweets” being used as a FP……using "on a whim and a prayer" as FP....

I learned a long time ago after VN if one does not ever speak truth to power things get worse….and in my work career that was a principle I held to which cost me sometimes, but I always learned even then you in fact move forward…because some along the way respected that.

The posting has led me to fully “see” and “understand” the intertwining of a lack of US FP built on well thought through strategies and allowed me to see at the same the interesting development of the Russian non linear warfare which is pushing their political war with the US….and they do view it as an actual war…somehow we do not…

BTW I have posted many comments on this concept of “seeing” and “understanding” something that drives me in all these years as I learned long ago ground reality “does talk to you..if you are willing to listen”….

After being recently chastised and sidelined for three days “for being on a soap box” that not many were willing to actually share…..even though reading and then responding by cut and pasting comments….I have decided it is now a good time to withdraw from SWC…it has been a great ride , the knowledge I gained in the postings has flowed into my company in a far different way than I even imagined and is openly up a startling new realm in integrating hacking defense with customers demanding now how to counter the everyday info war they are in….

It has been one heck of a long ride and I really enjoyed it…will comment on occasions if an article interests me…….

The killing in eastern Ukraine and Syria will just continue until someone stands up in the US and truly leads….and leads not by tweets….but by the realization of what Putin’s geo political goals really are guided by a strategic strategy...finally.....

Based on evidence I have had the opportunity to be shown/review the person tweeting might not be in office much longer IF treason counts for anything these days in the US…

AND if readers of this thread have not learned at least the following....Russian propaganda is no different than what the current US President is doing.....with his tweeting and then lack of clarification of what he tweeted......

The White House insists Trump is not trying to tilt outcome of #frenchelection after #ParisAttack.

Another terrorist attack in Paris. The people of France will not take much more of this. Will have a big effect on presidential election!

NO US President prior to Trump ever used twitter to impact anything ....ALL previous Presidents have basically refrained from commenting on the internal elections of other countries.....

It has been the white nationalist Bannon and Trump who have repeatedly talked about the demise of EU after Brexit....they both in theory stated that Holland would go the way of UK followed by France......will be more than happy to provide the links to their statements....

AND this WH attempts to then deflect that Trump actually was supporting a French anti-Semitic white nationalist with a neo Nazi father...who wants to destroy NATO and walk away from EU and the Euro...as her stated goals....

WHICH actually are the same goals as Bannon and Trump....

BTW...all her past meetings with Putin have always been held under tight secrecy.....and she recently stated she had not met him the last time she was in Moscow...but then social media did in fact prove she and then she attempted to lie further about the so called "non meeting"....

This white nationalist US President cannot simply keep his mouth shut especially when it comes to European affairs when he cannot get a single thing passed in Congress and the government will shut down on the 28th...

Claiming to know anything about France and French politics when he has not read a single book...watches only ultra right/right wing social media and cannot put a complete sentence together and cannot spell when typing his own tweets says everything...

Quote:
Speaking to the Associated Press, Trump called Le Pen the “strongest on borders, and she’s the strongest on what’s been going on in France.”

Trump told the AP he was not making a formal endorsement ahead of Sunday’s vote in France, expected to produce two finalists for a May 7 runoff vote to replace outgoing President Francois Hollande.
But the comments reignited alarms in Europe and the U.S. about Trump’s commitment to the continent’s key institutions—including the European Union and the NATO alliance—after several weeks of reassuring signals from Trump and his top officials.
They followed a Friday morning tweet in which Trump said that a Thursday shooting on Paris’s Champs Elysees, believed to be an act of terrorism, would "have a big effect” on the country's election.
Trump and his WH merry white nationalist band of brothers in Miller and Bannon have been exceptionally quiet but it appears they are coming out again....
