NOTICE just how the Twitter hashtag CNNBlackmail got started and notice how it is being picked up and spread into MSM....

Again. HanAssholeSolo is not 15 or anywhere close to it. This is POTUS' son spreading misinformation.

EVEN Trump family members play the info warfare game....

Will in fact Trump lift Russian sanctions as a "show of good faith" .....thus in fact allowing Russian hacking of US elections and continued info warfare operations against the US......without any penalty.....without any cost to Russia...

US Russian Ambassador Kislyak encourages POTUS to break w/ "Washington" on Russia, remove punitive measures for bad Kremlin behavior.

NOTE:
The twitter account ELEVEN_GOP is a Russian controlled English language bot that was up to a few days ago titled TEN_GOP and was deeply involved in supporting Le Pen twitter accounts in pushing leaked Marcon hacked emails into France from the US...just before the French election.

APPEARS Twitter suspended TEN_GOP with no warning..... looks like @Support discovered it was a Russian controlled account appearing to be a US account....

BTW..the chart below is a good indicator of the "human2 driving a lot of the proTrump alt right ie white nationalist messaging and proTrump hashtags and in this case...driving the hashtag CNNBlackmail.....

BTW....Posobiec and Cernovich drove the hashtag Syrianhoax which was basically retweeting Russian statements that the sarin gas attack as a fake and if real it came from the rebels...they practically used Russian tweets word for word.....

NOTE:
Someone must have the twitter account for SoS Tillerson under their control ...cannot believe he would be retweeting CNNBlackmail....
IMPORTANT to watch this particular hashtag being driven by proTrump alt rightists ie white nationalists......

The Reddit user behind Trump’s CNN meme apologized. But #CNNBlackmail is the story taking hold.

NOTICE now the proTrump alt rightist ie white nationalist social media infrastructure kicks in.....

Quote:
Overnight, the r/The_Donald board that once hosted the user’s apology and plea for peace was filled up with even more anti-CNN memes, and posts calling for a full-on war against the network. The Trump-supporting Redditors picked up an idea from 4chan’s /pol/ board, organizing mass calls and tweet-storms to a long list of companies, demanding they stop advertising on CNN. The story soon spread to Trump-friendly publications like Gateway Pundit and Infowars.
Quote:
The reference to the Redditor’s age comes from#a tantalizing but extremely unconfirmed detail that began to attach itself to the meme as it spread. Was the user#a 15-year-old kid, as many posts on the #CNNBlackmail hashtag repeat as fact? Even though CNN, and screenshots of the user’s own Reddit history seem to contradict this, indicating that the user is significantly older, the notion that CNN had just threatened to doxx a minor was extremely shareable among Trump supporters, including one of the president’s own sons:
Donald Trump Jr.

@DonaldJTrumpJr
So I guess they weren't effective threatening the admin so they go after & bully a 15 y/o? Seems in line w their "standards" #CNNBlackmail

The White House is staying silent about the possible anti-Semitic connection of President Trump’s anti-CNN video

http://cnn.it/2sGE92M

NOTE...the original poster of the Reddit meme was known for extensive anti- Semitic postings on the sub Reddit account....ALL now deleted immediately after his apology was posted on Reddit...WHICH is now unwilling to repost....

So glad Trump shut down the State Dept section that monitored anti-Semitism this week

Daily Stormer Troll Army Threatens CNN Staffers Over Reddit User Behind Trump/CNN GIF

“Just like CNN tracked down this child and used media exposure as a bludgeon against him for posting (truthful and funny) things that they don’t like, we are going to begin tracking down their families as a bludgeon against them for publishing (seditiously fraudulent) things that we don’t like,” wrote Auernheimer. “CNN, this is your one singular chance to walk back this behavior of public blackmail. You have one week to fix this.”
Auernheimer’s list of demands includes the public firing of the KFile team, a denouncement of their alleged threats, a $50,000 college scholarship for HanAssholeSolo, and a public assurance that “he and his family will never be harmed by your organization.”
The only problem:#HanAssholeSolo is an adult,#according to CNN.

The 4chan message board /pol/, which is#dedicated to#politically incorrect discussion,#dubbed the campaign “Operation:Autism Storm” and posted a four part plan of attack that includes banding together with other far right sites, going after CNN’s advertisers, discrediting everyone at CNN, and forming a legal strategy for HanAssholeSolo should he later be doxed.
At least nine separate hashtags trended across far-right accounts Tuesday evening – including #cnnblackmail, #cnndoxing, and #fraudnewscnn – as the controversy erupted.

Quote:
Within hours, personal information for multiple CNN staffers and their family members -- alongside images and gifs of individuals with CNN superimposed over their faces being shot in the head -- appeared in the comments of the posting.

All the BS on CNN, Trump's CNN tweet & Reddit is designed to distract you from Trump's total lack of options on DPRK & his meeting w/Putin.

The Russian Propaganda Principle works on the 6Ds

Auschwitz Memorial condemns Rep. Clay Higgins for filming homeland security video inside gas chamber at death camp: "It's not a stage"

http://abcn.ws/2unZY9M
NOW this same Congressman is apologizing for his video efforts....SO what the heck was he thinking in attempting to tie the Holocaust under Nazi's to the Muslim immigrant issue???

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politi...cid=spartanntp

Forgot...he was just parroting Trump and the entire alt right ie white nationalist movement....which is very strong in LA BTW....

SEEMS others fully understood what this LA Congressman fully meant with his video.....EVEN if he ignores it himself in his apology.....

WHY does it take Europeans to educate US Congressmen.....in of all things history????

Quote:
"As a site for reflection, one that often evokes deep personal pain for survivors and their families, Auschwitz should never be politicized or used as a platform for giving personal views," ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said in a statement to NBC News.

"The museum at Auschwitz-Birkenau lies on sacred ground. It is a burial site and a memorial to the estimated 1.1 million prisoners who were exterminated or tortured inside the camp's walls. It is a permanent testament to the brutality of the Nazi regime, and a reminder of why the world should never turn away when forces of hatred and prejudice lead to genocide," Greenblatt added.
HINT...look at what you the US are currently doing...sometimes looking at your reflection in a mirror is extremely helpful....

NOW Trump will actually experience first hand just how Russian non linear warfare is used within say Poland which is a reflection of how this tactic is used in Russia as well....latest polling indicates that JUST 6% of Poles have any interest in the Trump visit thus no one was actually going to come at all.....thus the bussing for PR effects...

Actually a very valid assumption by NYTs.....

Fiona Hill is not "Kremlin Critic." She is the president's senior advisor on Russia. She must attend Putin mtg.
http://thebea.st/2sHPk02?source=twitter&via=desktop#

Watch to see if Trump allows her to be there...which BTW there should never be a discussion on...IF he allows her then one MIGHT have the view he is not connected to Russians....IF though she does not attend those meetings because Trump does not want her there as he did with the Russian FM meeting...THEN you have your evidence of Russian collusion.....

Quote:
The White House’s best-known Russia hawk is already in Germany, in advance of Donald Trump’s high-stakes meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the G-20 summit. But whether Fiona Hill will be allowed in the room when the two presidents get together is still very much an open question.
According to two White House aides, senior Trump administration officials have pressed for Hill—the National Security Council’s senior director for Europe and Russia and the author of critical psychological biography of Putin—to be in the room during the president’s highly anticipated meeting with Putin.
If Hill is there, these officials believe, it will help the White House avoid the perception that the president is too eager to cozy up to the Kremlin. The hope is to avoid a repeat of Trump’s last meeting with top Russian officials, during which he disclosed classified intelligence to two of the country’s top diplomats—and was pictured by Russian state media looking particularly friendly with them.
NOTE...SAD when an adult must be in the room with a US President these days...

BTW...she is not considered to be a "Russian hawk".....

Interesting if actually true....so the core question....is the Trump WH really interested in defending US democracy built on the 1st Amendment...free speech and a free press????.....NOT really......

Is then the Trump WH to be seen as a developing authoritarian regime ie "smiling fascism"????

Maybe is the current answer....

More evidence of a pattern of abuse of power linked to Trump loyalty demands. WH is eyeing a_merger_as leverage in its war on @CNN!

WHAT is simply amazing is that both Reddit and Twitter could actually stop this type of activiy if they would truly clamp down as has YouTube and FB which has hired over 5K new employees to just focus on filtering out such activity....BUT do not due to maybe those Russian oligarch investors?????

AND the US alt right and ultra right is still shooting yesterday at CNN......what is it about free speech and free press that the right and ultra right seems to ignore but then get's seriously uptight when they are attacked????

Differences between Infowars and Breitbart.com .....none really.

REMEMBER Trump's special advisor Bannon has obtained an Ethnics Exemption to continuing working as a Director of Breitbart.com.....

Limbaugh: ‘It Is the End of CNN’

http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/...baugh-end-cnn/


Quote:
Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com):
Hey, let me ask you a question, folks. How many people over the course of your life, over the course of the recent past, months, years, how many people do you know that constantly complain about the media? Everybody, right? Everybody’s always complaining about the media. So over this past weekend I had somebody say, “Do you believe what Trump is doing to CNN?”
I said, “What do you mean what Trump is doing to CNN? It’s not what Trump is doing to CNN. It’s what CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post are doing to Trump!”
So many people have complained to me about the media for all of my life, the entire portion of my life that I’ve been doing this program. “Something’s got to be done. We’ve got to do something. Why doesn’t somebody do something about the media?” And here comes Donald Trump doing something about the media and people are getting nervous. Not everybody. Some people are obviously very supportive and happy about this.

NOTICE...absolutely no mention for FAKE news and or propaganda being distributed from alt right ie white nationalist social media accounts and or blog sites AND OR anti Semitic comments also being posted on those sites.....

SO if I correctly understand this..he is demanding the elimination of the 1st Amendment??



BTW...CNN just had it's most watched second quarter in their history...so someone must be intently watching it.....MAYBE that is the problem...too many are listening and forming their opinions due to their reporting which on Trump has been exceptionally accurate of late....

OR maybe the fear from the right is that CNN does in fact sit on a massive explosive article complete with Trump and family audio recordings....

Russian Information Warfare is all about creating a "narrative perception"....if this occurs just what then is the "perception of the US in the ME".....especially in Sunni areas.....ie REMEMBER Aleppo and the Russian use of incendiary munitions against civilians, their bombing of hospitals, market places and mosques etc....

Their "perception will be" US is no different than Russia which has killed via bombing thousands of Sunni's...

U.S. would consider no-fly zone in Syria if Russia agrees
http://reut.rs/2tLlhod

Trump is desperately trying get together with Putin.....why is that especially when DoD under Obama basically waved off on this for the same reasons stated above..."perception"....

Why almost every state is partially or fully rebuffing Trump’s election commission
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...d-commission/#

45 states rejected giving Kris Kobach all of the voter data he asked for. Here are the facts
https://www.thenation.com/article/th...firing-badly/#

Actually interesting in that this is a main Trump info warfare statement.....he was "robbed of 6M" votes via illegal voting by immigrants who voted at least twice.

Why is it that we see virtually no difference in Russian info warfare and Trump info warfare??

BUT REMEMBER Trump still has not published that US cyber defense plan he promised within 90 days....but "so called voter fraud"...off and running with a full commission....
