Dissident Trolling for the NSA
More important than details top-secret United States and British government mass surveillance programs, Edward Snowden, American CIA NSA computer specialist leaked to the press, are methodologies of analysis and verification. For raw information gleaned. without context is for all intents and purposes useless, as a quick survey of prominent American and foreign politically involved persons would reveal.
Appearances are no means to judge the real mettle and character of a person, from Eldridge Cleaver to Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) to President Harry S. Truman, one can not judge a book by its cover.
On the Right
Numerous American politicians were also members of Klu Klux Klan, including one Democratic Party President Harry Truman (D-Mo). As it is alleged one Republican Party President Warren G. Harding (R- Ohio) 29th President of the United States from 1921 to his death in 1923, including:
Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court Hugo Black (D – Al). In 1921, Black successfully defended E. R. Stephenson in the sensationalistic trial for the murder of a Catholic priest Fr. James E. Coyle. He joined the Ku Klux Klan shortly after, thinking it necessary for his political career. Running for the Senate as the “people’s” candidate, Black believed he needed the votes of Klan members. Near the end of his life, Black would admit that joining the Klan was a mistake, but he went on to say “I would have joined any group if it helped get me votes
On the Left
Eldridge Cleaver, writer, political activist, early leader of the Black Panther Party. His book Soul On Ice is a collection of essays praised by The New York Times Book Review at the time of its publication as “brilliant and revealing”. Cleaver went on to become a prominent member of the Black Panthers, having the titles Minister of Information and Head of the International Section of the Panthers, while in exile in Cuba and Algeria. As editor of the official Panther’s newspaper, Cleaver’s influence on the direction of the Party was rivaled only by founders Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale. Cleaver and Newton eventually fell out with each other, resulting in a split that weakened the Party.
Like the once left wing red diaper baby turncoat David Horowitz, Eldridge Clever changed, where Cleaver spent seven years in exile in Cuba, Algeria, and France, Cleaver returned in 1975 to the US. Eldridge Cleaver (if one is to believe his initial revolutionary associations) strangely became involved in various Christian groups (UnificationChurch, CARP, and Mormonism), as well as becoming a conservative Republican, appearing at Republican events.
Today much of the information collected by the National Security Agency (NSA) is raw data. If one is to presume in ill placed beliefs that the NSA is the exclusive or main source, of information gathered in the massive large scale data mining conducted by the United States government, then the Central Intelligence Agency and, Federal Bureau of Investigation, NATO Allies that includes.
Where NATO Allies includes and represents officially 28 countries:
Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, Totaling 906,002,051 people
With intelligence agents and resources it can be presumed in most of the world, including countries not listed in Asia, Africa, and South America.
Social Networking Sites Analysis
Some twenty years ago I foresaw and predicted the development and use of bots in chat rooms, online. I make the comparison today between intelligence and chess, as World Chess Champion Grandmaster Garry Kasparov suggested “the future of chess will be the Computer Human hybrid”. To explain in detail intelligence gathering and analysis, that analysis most often would be most crucial in real time events crucially related real life circumstances not hypothetical circumstances.
In what is not as of yet applied fully within N ATO countries as the collected resources of those countries would like to have some believe as for example most drone assassinations (aka attacks) are in fairly remote sparsely populated areas. Where NATO forces would prefer for propaganda purposes not to cause civilians casualties, it is not entirely sensitive to civilian causalities, as Israeli use of cluster bombs, widespread use of land mines, and America’s long history of attacking civilian targets indicate.
Without more full and complete information of what occurs within intelligence groups some conclusions can only be presumed though often such matters as Standard Operating Procedures (SOP). As SOP that is safe to say just as predictable, as pawn to King four, or. pawn to Queen four, the two most overwhelmingly used opening moves first made in a game of chess.
For intelligence has much in common with what is referred to as police or detective work worldwide. Where in interrogations as in social networking environments there are the good cops and the bad cops which are utilized to dynamically obtain an accurate perspective of what is being said.. Where in the same conversation on the American based internet there will be liberals, as well as perhaps conservatives, or even other identities so as to be able to distinguish, Green Democrats, from Green Party Activists, Green Anarcho Communists, where there are mainstream Republicans and Democrats as well as fringe minorities as the Dragnet TV Show line goes “Just the facts Ma’am, just the facts”.
But what are the facts? As there are two ways to get the facts if not more, just as there are more than two ways to skin a cat most people do not expect to be subject to police intelligence agents for what is considered and presumed legal activities. which does not mean it is not of interest to intelligence when a party of interest is concerned.
Where much is made of people who are considered “Trolls”, where all “trolls” can be viewed as dissidents. In internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidentally or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.
But first of all who is supposed to be the authority to determine who is and who is not a troll, in what would otherwise be considered bullying, harassment, political oppression, political suppression, in what is technically illegal at least in some part of the world?
Who is supposed to be the authority as to what “sows “discord on the Internet”?
Who is supposed to be the authority as to what is “starting arguments”?
Who is supposed to be the authority as to what “upsetting people”?
Who is supposed to be the authority as to what is “inflammatory”?
Who is supposed to be the authority as to what is “extraneous”?
Who is supposed to be the authority as to what are off-topic messages?
Where “either accidentally or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers” is immaterial, who is supposed to be the authority as to what is “an emotional response?
Or Who is supposed to be the authority as to what is “otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion”?
But most importantly as to who is supposed to be the authority to determine why , why not, what, who, where and when all the aforementioned troubles should ?
If you ask Democrats and Republicans undoubtedly in my mind they both would have different answers though not as probable as some other choice questions as with Tea Party conservatives and Occupy Wall Street Democrats or better yet Anarcho Occupy Wall Streeters.
While this sense of the word troll and its associated verb trolling are associated with Internet discourse, media attention in recent years has made such labels subjective, with trolling also used to describe intentionally provocative actions and harassment outside of an online context.
Though Wikipedia claims in explanation that:
“A concern troll is a false flag pseudonym created by a user whose actual point of view is opposed to the one that the user claims to hold. The concern troll posts in Web forums devoted to its declared point of view and attempts to sway the group’s actions or opinions while claiming to share their goals, but with professed “concerns”. The goal is to sow fear, uncertainty and doubt within the group.” (Wikipedia)
The fact of the matter is that the political status quo has for years use this as a tactic in approach to online views they have disagreed with.
“An example of this occurred in 2006 when Tad Furtado, a staffer for then-Congressman Charles Bass (R-NH), was caught posing as a “concerned” supporter of Bass’ opponent, Democrat Paul Hodes, on several liberal New Hampshire blogs, using the pseudonyms “IndieNH” or “IndyNH”. “IndyNH” expressed concern that Democrats might just be wasting their time or money on Hodes, because Bass was unbeatable. Hodes eventually won the election.” (Ibid.).
In wide a spread sociopath political hooliganism:
“Although the term ‘concern troll’ originated in discussions of online behavior, it now sees increasing use to describe similar behaviors that take place offline. For example, James Wolcott of Vanity Fair accused a conservative New York Daily News columnist of ‘concern troll’ behavior in his efforts to downplay the Mark Foley scandal. Wolcott links what he calls concern trolls to what Saul Alinsky calls “Do-Nothings”, giving a long quote from Alinsky on the Do-Nothings’ method and effects: These Do-Nothings profess a commitment to social change for ideals of justice, equality, and opportunity, and then abstain from and discourage all effective action for change. They are known by their brand, ‘I agree with your ends but not your means’ The Hill published an op-ed piece by Markos Moulitsas of the liberal blog Daily Kos titled “Dems: Ignore ‘Concern Trolls'”. The concern trolls in question were not Internet participants; they were Republicans offering public advice and warnings to the Democrats. The author defines “concern trolling” as “offering a poisoned apple in the form of advice to political opponents that, if taken, would harm the recipient”.
In what in the long term only benefits the intelligence apparatuses of the military industrial complex as taxpayers are robbed to pay for what can neither be supported nor justified in a changing world purported to be civilized. How can the big nations in their chauvinism demand other nations as enemies neither develop nor possess weapons when they themselves retain those weapons, in a degree of hypocrisy they rationalize. Where the president and other high level functionaries speak within a limited degree of truthfulness, and no guarantee can top provided nor which is provided by them so as to assure and guarantee one of the many sociopaths who work for the government as contract agents, informers, provocateurs; and, where in the recent trial it was revealed domestically alone that the “FBI allowed its informants to commit more than 5,500 crimes in a single year – or over 15 times a day” (DAILY MAIL 5 August 2013)
Where the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) the National Security Agency (NSA), and the NATO allies proportionately equal or greater numbers of crimes that are reported, that this writer estimates to be 3.7 crimes an hour, 24/7, 365 days a year which inot to mentions crimes that are obscured in the forms of deaths on the job, starvation, illiteracy, poverty, greed, product defects, war and civil unrest.
Where “dissident” “trolling” seems a minor inconvenience for some in what is done on behalf of the governments of the world representing the United States, China, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Israel, Iran, Egypt, Turkey, Australia, India and Pakistan, South African where through the joint cooperation of those same countries, the people are prejudices as dissidents, as is democracy that some ironically call trolling. Governments that one can presume that by their actions thinks the world would be better off if society collapses so they can profit by those troubles as the worlds most major arms dealers and manufacturers, and traffickers.
