General Stanley McChrystal delighted the left and the war-loving neoconservatives today by joining his name to the ranks of military-industrial complex “national security” professionals supporting Joe Biden.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1311769586782609414&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.revolver.news%2F2020%2F10%2Fbiden-loving-general-is-deploying-military-grade-information-warfare-against-trump-supporters%2F&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=500px

This development should not be surprising. While Trump enjoys overwhelming support from the military rank and file, the brass has been largely corrupted for some time. As the President himself pointed out, many of the Generals and national security bigwigs have their fortunes tied to the continuation of precisely the never-ending war policies that Trump successfully ran against in 2016.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-1&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1303037246875017216&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.revolver.news%2F2020%2F10%2Fbiden-loving-general-is-deploying-military-grade-information-warfare-against-trump-supporters%2F&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=500px

General Stanley McChrystal is a certified military brass swamp creature deep in the bowels of the military-industrial complex. His specific business ventures are disturbing, even by swamp standards. According to a Fox News report, General McChrystal was involved in a venture that aimed to redeploy information warfare tools–originally designed to combat ISIS–against Trump supporters:

An anti-Trump Democratic-aligned political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal is planning to deploy an information warfare tool that reportedly received initial funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Pentagon’s secretive research arm — transforming technology originally envisioned as a way to fight ISIS propaganda into a campaign platform to benefit Joe Biden.

The Washington Post first reported that the initiative, called Defeat Disinfo, will utilize “artificial intelligence and network analysis to map discussion of the president’s claims on social media,” and then attempt to “intervene” by “identifying the most popular counter-narratives and boosting them through a network of more than 3.4 million influencers across the country — in some cases paying users with large followings to take sides against the president.”

Social media guru Curtis Hougland is heading up Defeat Disinfo, and he said he received the funding from DARPA when his work was “part of an effort to combat extremism overseas.”

After this article was published, the Post updated its reporting to clarify that Hougland was “using open-source technology initially incubated with funding from DARPA.” The Post originally reported: “The initiative is run by Curtis Hougland, who received initial funding for the technology from DARPA, the Pentagon’s research arm, as part of an effort to combat extremism overseas.”

Hougland explained in an interview with the Post that he was unhappy that top social media accounts often supported Trump, and had effectively defended the president in recent days from claims that he had suggested Americans inject themselves with disinfectant. [Fox News]

So here we have a former General involved in an effort to censor the President of the United States and his supporters, using information warfare technology originally intended to fight ISIS terrorists. This is neither the first, nor will it be the last such example of a former national security officer using tools designed to fight America’s adversaries against Trump-supporting American citizens.

Infamously biased anti-Trump Tech behemoth Google sponsors a project known as Jigsaw whose main purpose is to develop Artificial Intelligence capabilities to censor so-called “hate speech” online. Of course, hate speech is weakly defined, and almost always ends up casting a wide net. Inevitably, those censored tend to be Trump supporters concerned with law and order, fighting open borders, and ending America’s wars. The man who runs Jigsaw, Jared Cohen, is a veteran of Hillary Clinton’s State Department. Cohen made a name for himself in developing digital strategies to advance American national security objectives.

Jigsaw, a technology incubator within Alphabet, says it has developed a new tool for web publishers to identify toxic comments that can undermine a civil exchange of ideas. Starting Thursday, publishers can start applying for access to use Jigsaw’s software, called Perspective, without charge.

“We have more information and more articles than any other time in history, and yet the toxicity of the conversations that follow those articles are driving people away from the conversation,” said Jared Cohen, president of Jigsaw, formerly known as Google Ideas. [CNBC]

“Toxic” is, of course, a term of art used by censorious globalists to justify shutting down speech they don’t like.

Discussion in comments sections often devolves into an offensive and hateful exchange unless it is carefully managed. This has prompted some publishers to turn off the comments section on articles because moderating them can be time-consuming and difficult.

With machine learning, a computer system is programmed to learn from repetition. It takes in training data — essentially, example after example — until it is familiar enough to anticipate with a high degree of confidence the proper response for a given situation.

In this instance, Jigsaw had a team review hundreds of thousands of comments to identify the types of comments that might deter people from a conversation. Based on that data, Perspective provided a score from zero to 100 on how similar the new comments are to the comments identified as toxic. [CNBC]

In case there was any doubt about the political bias of this technology, the first use-case should offer a pretty clear hint:

Jigsaw worked with The New York Times and Wikipedia to develop Perspective. The Times’s comments section is managed by a team of 14 moderators who manually review nearly every comment. [CNBC]

And in case there was any doubt about Jared Cohen’s national security bona fides, the following passage should offer similar clarity:

Cohen’s directorate appeared to cross over from public relations and “corporate responsibility” work into active corporate intervention in foreign affairs at a level that is normally reserved for states. Jared Cohen could be wryly named Google’s “director of regime change.” According to the emails, he was trying to plant his fingerprints on some of the major historical events in the contemporary Middle East. He could be placed in Egypt during the revolution, meeting with Wael Ghonim, the Google employee whose arrest and imprisonment hours later would make him a PR-friendly symbol of the uprising in the Western press. Meetings had been planned in Palestine and Turkey, both of which—claimed Stratfor emails—were killed by the senior Google leadership as too risky. Only a few months before he met with me, Cohen was planning a trip to the edge of Iran in Azerbaijan to “engage the Iranian communities closer to the border,” as part of Google Ideas’ project on “repressive societies.” [Wikileaks]

So, in General McChrystal we have a former General in Afghanistan involved in a firm deploying information warfare tools designed to fight ISIS against Trump supporters. In Jared Cohen, former Hillary State Department official turned Google’s “director of regime change,” we have a man deploying military grade AI censorship tools to police internet conversation, with politically predicable biases.

These two troubling cases must be understood within the context of the undeniable corruption of large swaths of America’s national security bureaucracy–from the CIA, to the FBI, to the DOJ, to other top military brass. Over the past four years we have seen how each institution has been corrupted and repurposed–not to advance American national security interests, but to suppress expressions of populism and nationalism domestically. Ironically, while the national security establishment likes to accuse its adversaries of using weapons “against their own people,” increasingly corrupt elements of the national security state are doing just that—repurposing our vast security apparatus to suppress political expression and activity at home.

Perhaps the most disturbing example of this is the recent claim by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security that “white supremacy” is the biggest national security threat. True white supremacy is virtually non-existent in the United States, and any efforts to “combat” white supremacy simply amount to code-language intended to justify the use of the security apparatus to intimidate and silence conservatives, populists, and nationalists.

The case of McChrystal, his fellow general Mattis, and similarly corrupted individuals in the broader national security apparatus force us to acknowledge difficult truths. Just as Americans had to learn the hard way that corporate America has become fully corrupt with woke ideology, so must they now confront the reality that the same disease has thoroughly infiltrated institutions that Americans traditionally thought of as patriotic and conservative. This infiltration includes the police forces, the FBI, and even the Military, and it goes all the way to the top. As this process accelerates, we run the risk of having our country’s formidable security apparatus increasingly abused for political purposes–specifically to persecute and suppress conservatives.

Such disturbing developments remind us of the stakes of the broader political struggle in which we are engaged as citizens and patriots. We must come to realize that every single institution in the country has come under the control of forces that are utterly hostile to the interests of the American people. To acknowledge this reality with a sober and clear eye is not to give in to demoralization or defeatism. To the contrary, only with a clear eye as to the nature and scope of the challenge we face will we be able to successfully rise to a moment that calls for the very best in us to save our great, and greatly imperiled nation.

  1. Todd says:“Racism” is an accepted global norm, to protect people’s lives, cultures and prosperity from threats.
    “Racism” keeps the Japanese from being butchered by Africans, blown up/”groomed” by Pakistanis, losing their quality of life and culture to Indians and Chinese.
    Only white people are denied borders and homogeneity, those are exclusively nonwhite privileges. This isn’t “antiracism”, it’s antiwhiteism.
    One-way mass immigration and assimilation is not “diversity”, it’s…?Reply

  6. Bob Wales says:Another arm chair General who doesn’t fight on the battlefield. I predict that the left will make all military guys preform oral sex on each other to prove that they are not homophobic.Reply
    • Gerald Montgomery says:He’s no “armchair general.” He’s ex-Special Forces, Ranger Regiment, and JSOC Commander. His infowar company is the subject of Millie Weaver’s great documentary “Shadowgate.” He’s a deep state scum bag yes but armchair general? Hell no. He’s been in combat. A lot.Reply
      • Ragnar says:Well…that’s not totally accurate. He was an upper field grade and flag officer when he was in those areas. So he wasn’t exactly kicking in doors and shooting people in the face. More like with a TOC somewhere removed from most of the bad stuff. The army is real careful where it lets flag officers go. I had him as a company commander in 3rd Ranger Bn.Reply
      • Sunny says:Yes, his soldiers, he just played the chess piecesReply
  7. Grunt8041 says:Having his endorsement is like being endorsed by the village idiot. He was relieved from command because of his hubris and gross negligence. He has become increasingly irrelevant and can’t stand not being the center of attention…just a ploy to get “sunlight.” Pathetic really…much like Mattis…which is painful for me considering I spent 27 years in the Corps.Reply
  8. Wolf Strike says:Anybody remember the few real journalists in America – Michael Hastings?
    He had the guts to deliver the truth to the American people about the
    power and agenda of the Deep State/ Pentagon.
    He reported on General McChrystal’s actions and comments in
    Afghanistan. It came out in a Rolling Stones Magazine article.
    Obama fired him. McChrystal personally blamed Hastings for his
    firing.
    The general had connections to very covert operations and the CIA.
    Mysteriously, a few years later in 2013, Hastings, who was about to
    blow the lid off the Pentagon and Deep State actions, gets in his car
    In L.A. and “mysteriously”, his car somehow accelerates to 80 mph
    in a residential neighborhood and crashes and catches fire and he
    burns alive.
    Michael Hastngs can be seen on YouTube and these moments show
    the guts he had in confronting truth to power.
    General McChrystal works for the Globalists/Deep State and has betrayed
    the people of the United States.
    He has worked to overthrow President Trump behind the scenes and should
    be tried for treason.Reply
  9. Patrick Cusick says:This article is exactly what ShadowGate exposed. Corporations within Corporations & platforms within platforms. All designed to cull information and use it as a weapon.Reply
  10. Tom SteChatte says:Hold up! McChrystal is the general whom Obammy fired in 2010 for calling Biden, “Bite Me”, to a Rolling Stone inbred, I mean, imbed. This is the guy who coined the effing name! Now, he’s BiteMe’s best bud? Beware the military elite–they are NOT patriots and never were. They have always been in it for themselves. Megalomaniac Ayholes!Reply
    • Wolf Strike says:Don’t worry about the “inbred”. That journalist’s name was Michael Hastings.
      Hastings was a real journalist.
      He dies “mysteriously” and conveniently in 2013 in L.A. when his car
      “mysteriously” amped up to 80 mph in a residential neighborhood and
      crashed into a ball of flames.
      General McChrystal is a traitor and a Deep Stater who has worked tirelessly
      to destroy our country.
      If anybody is an inbred it is McChrystal.Reply
  11. Dusan says:Recall him to duty and court-martial him
    Done.Reply
  12. Holden Caulfield says:An important article of the highest priority. There are more than 2 dozen AI driven efforts to suppress and distort the narrative of public discussion towards progressive globalism.We are entering into and incredibly repressive dark period with complete dominance by the world government and the “retired” military utilizing our own National Defense technology.This is the most serious threat.Reply
  13. N. Remita says:McChrystal is a disgrace to our country. He placed our great men and women needlessly in harm’s way in Afghanistan just to promote his own name. A sick individual and those who promoted him.Reply
  14. Realist Thinker says:Anyone know what the penalty for treason is?It seems like police and soros-funded DAs are enforcing the law selectively.Maybe it’s time for citizens to start enforcing the law.Reply
