Every Time We Think The Donald Finally Has His Mouth Under Control, He Does It Again. [ Please Run for President Michael Bloomberg! ]

If only!!! If only businessman billionaire Donald Trump could control his oh so un-presidential off-the-cuff mouthings’, there might be a chance in hell, albeit it slim, that he would begin to sound credible as a candidate and a future national leader. But this man is apparently INCAPABLE of sounding presidential on the campaign trail, ergo – he will sound so much worse if he is elected, that yes, he WILL become a national embarrassment – in short order.

What’s the country to do? I cannot tolerate the idea of a corrupt liar like Hillary Clinton in the White House, and I DON’T want an openly socialist president Bernie Sanders as president either. He would run up the national debt by another 15 trillion right out of the gate. NO!!! Enter the possibility of an Independent run by NYC billionaire businessman and former mayor Michael Bloomberg. I have no qualms. If Bloomberg enters the race, I will absolutely vote for him. He would bring a refreshing centrist intelligent non-gridlock inducing personality into the Washington D.C. culture of corruption, that might just get some things done for a change.  At least we would not have to worry nonstop that something unfathomable would fly out of Bloomberg’s mouth at a G20 meeting that could set off an international crisis. Bloomberg is a smart, savvy man who knows how to conduct himself in international circles. And he could do much to resurrect the American economy and bring back jobs to the country. He’s an equal [ or better ] of Trump in every aspect as a businessman. We would finally – possibly – have a fair election race, one that could not be dominated by sheer verbal assaults and bullying of other candidates by Trump.

#RunBloombergRun

Rumors are swirling that former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg may enter the 2016 presidential race, unsettling the odds and possibly bringing t the first truly credible independent run for the White House in recent US history.

Meanwhile, here’s the typical kind of nonsensical slop we get from Donald Trump onstage. Someone hand me an aspirin. This is giving me a huge headache.

Whaaat? Gas Price Temporarily Dips to 47 Cents a Gallon in Michigan as Price Wars Rage

In the summer of 2008 I paid $4.75 per gallon for a fill-up in rural Northern California. I won’t forget that pinnacle gas price anytime soon. It cost me almost $100 that 102 degree summer day to fill the tank of my jeep. I would have NEVER believed anyone who told me that a few years later, the ongoing global oil price war being waged by OPEC would drop the price of gas in the USA back down to less than $2.00 a gallon. That didn’t seem possible at the time.

Yesterday we hit a new low water mark in the “new” gas wars of recent years. The price of gasoline temporarily dipped all the way down to 47 cents a gallon in Michigan as competing gas stations lowered the bar, again and again, vying for customers.

So we all know that the price of gasoline is pegged to the price of crude oil, which has plummeted since 2013 and was trading yesterday at the unheard of price of $28.90 a barrel. The recent plunge in oil prices has created a cascade of falling and downward correcting prices for other commodities, including the precious metals. If you have been squeamish about buying gold or silver bullion, the fortuitous drop in the price of oil has worked in your favor, with silver now at the bargain basement price of about $14 an ounce.That’s a price we most likely won’t see again for decades once gold and silver begin heading north again in about a year and a half.

So what does a gallon of gas now cost in the US? The average gas price as of 1.19.2016 is just $1.89, although prices will vary  from state to state. Let’s have a look. Based on this map from http://gasbuddy.com, gasoline prices are the cheapest in the American heartland [ note the green ] and most expensive in New England, California and the coastline of the Pacific Northwest in Washington state. If you’re traveling this winter, download a copy of the map to hopefully save a few bucks as you make your way across the country. Bon voyage, land rovers!

 

Dr. Marc Faber Is One of the Few Financial Gurus Willing to Tell the Truth about World Financial Markets and You Ought to Be Listening

Financial analyst Marc Faber has been warning investors since last October about a “Chinese credit bubble” and a potentially devastating correction to come in world markets.

1.7.2016

What average investors [ $50,000 to $250,000 usd in the stock market ] mostly don’t realize is that about 80% of the advice which is given to you as the ‘little guy’ investor is designed to make money for the guy who is giving the investment advice. Most brokers advise their customers to buy thus and such and they get a commission on that transaction, whether the stock soars or tanks. Small companies rise and fall like the daily tides in a global market beset by constant graft, corruption, currency manipulation, and the incessant tinkering with stock markets that governments attempt to do, which only makes matters worse in the end. The commentary of Dr. Marc Faber comes as a refreshing dose of pragmatic, experienced wisdom and common sense which stands out in the sea of self-centered profiteering which seems to run most contemporary investment advisories. Dr. Faber successfully predicted the now famous 1987 US stock market rout. What he sees happening today in 2016 is not dissimilar as a prelude of events to come.

It is now very difficult to ascertain REAL market conditions, as opposed to murky smoke and mirror tactics initiated by governments designed artificially to prop them up, year in year out. Blunt truth tellers are rare in the business of assessing and forecasting where the world economy might go. Joel Skousen is one of the few men who will fearlessly tell his subscribers the truth, ugly as it may be. But today I’d like to focus on market analyst Dr. Marc Faber, who has been making specific warnings to investors since last fall about a major correction or collapse of inter-connected world markets.

The impetus for this post was an event which took place early this morning, about 2-3 am pacific time in the US. When the Chinese CSI stock market opened at 9:30, traders immediately began dumping their stocks and selling off. 29 minutes later at about 10 am, the Chinese closed the market entirely, and halted trading. Had the Chinese not halted trading, we would be now facing a worldwide market crisis of epic proportions this very afternoon. As it is, this morning’s drop of 7% in China’s stock market has caused a drastic cascading effect around the world in nearly every market exchange. Dr. Faber had begun warning investors about this very real possibility last fall.

My own opinion is that today’s events might be likened to the moment the Titanic first hit the iceberg. The damage was there, but it was beneath the surface, not yet visible. Investors have two choices: remain on the ship, believing that it was just a small bump, and that everything will be fine – or listen to the sound of the water gushing into the floors below deck and get off the sinking ship before it’s too late.  Today’s events are the sound of that initial “crunch” of the ship hitting that iceberg. Investors are forewarned.

Be willing to take the right actions necessary to protect your nest egg. And if that means getting out of the US stock market, take that action. Sometimes the very smartest thing an investor can do is just park their money for awhile. It’s worth noting that a considerable amount of money has flowed into gold, silver and the Yen today – worth considering. In one of his reports Mr. Faber stated that gold could double in the next few years, during all of this market wash-out.

Will 2016 Be a Wild Ride? Future Prognosticators Weigh In.

“You can ignore reality, but you cannot ignore the eventual consequences of ignoring reality.” – Ayn Rand

The annual American cultural ritual of predicting and prognosticating about possible future events to come in the new year always yields fascinating theories and interesting, if not often troubling, video reports. Below are several I watched and gathered for readers. It goes without saying that I don’t necessarily feel that everything discussed in these reports will occur, or even vaguely coalesce. Often these video reports turn out t o be little more than prepper “fear porn.”

But it would be a very tumultuous new year indeed in 2016, if even some of these theorized possible events materialized.  Pay special attention to the commentary of Bill Holter in video three. For those who live in southern California, [ or Israel ] pay close attention to the narrative in video four. Video four lists the top five places NOT to be when the US dollar collapses: Israel, southern California, New York, Washington DC and Great Britain. It’s worth a watch if one of those locales is your home. OK. You have been warned.

Feel free to share these videos on your own social networks. It might also be a good idea to DOWNLOAD these videos to your own hard drive in the event they suspiciously “disappear” from YouTube after a few weeks. This happens frequently these days.

How do these predictions for 2016 compare to the predicted events of 2015 one year earlier? Review the video at

2015 Comes. Here’s an Interesting News Report Which Should Be Shared.

Are You Heavily Invested in the US Stock Market? It Is Urgent That You Listen to What Milton Berg Has to Say

11.30.2015

If investors had known in March, April or May of 1929, or 2008 what was coming, do you think they would have wanted to know, so that they could take profits where possible, preserve / salvage capital, and GET OUT of the stock market before those disastrous collapses took place? OF COURSE they would have wanted to know ahead of time! I would like to give my readers a gift. I’ve also been looking at all the indicators all this year and had arrived at the same conclusion that Mr. Berg speaks of, but I had no confidence anyone would listen, so I chose not to write about it. I now know that I can no longer NOT write about this issue, as a stock market correction is now on the horizon which could give millions of investors the shock of their adult lives, not to mention a heart attack.

I have privately felt that the ridiculous Alice-in-Wonderland “quantitative easing” program that the FED has put America on since 2008 would eventually lead to fiscal disaster, but it’s hard to convince the average Joe of that fact when they see a US stock market roaring into the stratosphere. The truth is that at this point about 10-12 ‘Mega cap’ super-stocks are now holding up the entire market, and there is no real value supporting a market which is hovering close to 18,000 points. What’s happened instead is that a literal tonnage of federal funny money, steaming right off the digital presses as computer entries onto balance sheets, has pushed the US stock market into artificially inflated territory which has to eventually come back to earth and back to reality. That day is coming, folks.

The extra 3-4 trillion dollars which has been pumped into the US money supply by the FED via balance sheet entries has now swollen the markets with imaginary wealth and artificial gains which are not backed by solid economic performance, with one or two exceptions. Actuality is calling.

Please please please listen to every word that financier and investment analyst Milton Berg is saying, especially if 80% or more of your retirement assets are invested in the US stock market. Pay attention to the warning signs he is discussing. Hang on every word, then play the clip again.  Milton Berg is giving you a gift and a blessing: fair warning, right here, right now. Feel free to share this video with those you love.

An Introduction to Joel Skousen’s “World Affairs Brief” – Daily News Headlines

Alternative news journalist and world affairs analyst Joel Skousen is a frequent guest on Coast to Coast Radio and I have listened with keen interest to many of his interviews. As the events of the world darken and escalate, it’s helpful to get a clear point of view which is not intent on keeping the truth from the American people, but is focused instead on revealing it. Here’s a sampler of recent headlines gleaned from Joel Skousen’s news website:

After boosting trade pacts, Hillary Clinton gets millions from speeches to traders

posted by askousen – Wednesday, May 20 2015
…In addition, the Biotechnology Industry Organization paid her $235,000 for a speech in San Diego, and the Advanced Medical Technology Association paid her $265,000 to speak in Chicago. Both groups have joined the broad ranks pushing for passage of the measures over the last couple of years. “I suppose that those in favor of the free-trade agreements know that when push comes to shove, Hillary Clinton is going to be on their side anyway,” said Craig Holman, who lobbies Congress for the consumer watchdog group Public Citizen. “Providing her with a lot of money is one sure way to keep her in their camp. . . . That’s how you buy influence: Find ways to hand cold cash over to the Clinton family.” Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, has made the speaking tour a cash cow for more than a decade, and separately he made about $13 million, bringing the former first couple’s total to $25 million from speeches in the 14 1/2-month period. — McClatchy News

Katie Pavlich: The protected, connected liberal media elite

posted by askousen – Wednesday, May 20 2015
…This time, it’s former Clinton White House communications hack and current ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos. Stephanopoulos was busted by the Washington Free Beacon last week for donating a total of $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation without disclosure to his employer or the audiences he serves. The revelation came less than one week after Stephanopoulos conducted a harsh interview with Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer, where he accused him of having a lack of evidence to support his claims that Hillary Clinton traded political favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation during her time as secretary of State. Stephanopoulos defended the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation and claimed ABC News had done a thorough investigation and found no wrongdoing – all while hiding his own donations to the organization. ABC hasn’t announced any plans to reprimand Stephanopoulos – after all, he was just helping to protect the environment and fund AIDS research. — The Hill

Cancer charities allegedly misused $187 million for concerts and dating sites, U.S. says

posted by askousen – Wednesday, May 20 2015
…Law enforcement from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, along with the Federal Trade Commission, are charging Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, Children’s Cancer Fund of America and the Breast Cancer Society and some of their executives with taking money that donors had given to help cancer patients and using it to on themselves as well as their families and friends. — Mashable

Staff quit Clinton Foundation over Chelsea

posted by askousen – Wednesday, May 20 2015
…Several top staffers have left the foundation since Chelsea came on board as vice chairman in 2011. “A lot of people left because she was there. A lot of people left because she didn’t want them there,” an insider told me. “She is very difficult.” Onetime CEO Bruce Lindsey was pushed upstairs to the position of chairman of the board two years ago, so that Chelsea could bring in her McKinsey colleague Eric Braverman. — Page Six

Russia says soldiers captured in Ukraine are not on active duty

posted by askousen – Wednesday, May 20 2015
…Despite the Kremlin’s staunch denial of active Russian troops in Ukraine the Russian defense ministry has admitted that the two men are indeed Russian nationals and have served in the country’s military at some point in their lives. In video from Ukraine’s Armed Forces one of the Russian soldiers says that just before he was captured by the Ukrainian side he tried to kill himself. — Ukraine Today

Rand Paul: I plan to do ‘everything humanly possible’ to try stop the Patriot Act

posted by askousen – Tuesday, May 19 2015
…He said he could demand 60 votes and not give consent to proceed – “that I will do, so I will do a formal filibuster.” “Whether or not that means I can go to the floor – some of that depends on what happens, because – you have to get to the floor when the floor allows you to come, so whether that happens or not, I will filibuster the Patriot Act, and I’ll do everything I can to try to adhere to the courts – the courts have now said the bulk collection of records is illegal,” he said. “They should stop immediately.” — Washington Times

Ukraine crisis: ‘Russian special forces’ captured

posted by askousen – Tuesday, May 19 2015
Ukraine’s military says its forces have captured two Russian soldiers fighting with rebels in eastern Ukraine. The troops were seized in the town of Shchastya, near the line of separation. A video emerged apparently showing one of the soldiers – which it said were members of Russia’s elite special forces – saying during questioning that he was a sergeant from the central Russian city of Togliatti. — BBC

Stephanopoulos, ABC have not fully disclosed Clinton ties: Schweizer

posted by askousen – Tuesday, May 19 2015
…If Stephanopoulos had disclosed his donations to the very foundation I was there to talk about, perhaps it would have put the aggressive posture of his interview with me in context. But he didn’t. And even though he has apologized to his viewers for keeping this information from both his audience and his bosses, there is much that Stephanopoulos has yet to disclose to his viewers. Indeed, far from being a passive donor who strokes Clinton Foundation checks from afar, a closer look reveals that Stephanopoulos is an ardent and engaged Clinton Foundation advocate. — USA Today

Wire-tap scandal brings thousands out against Macedonian leader

posted by askousen – Tuesday, May 19 2015
…Since February, he has faced a wave of embarrassing revelations against him and his ministers, contained in taped conversations that appear to expose tight government control over journalists, judges and the conduct of elections. Opposition Social Democrat leader Zoran Zaev says the tapes, which he has dubbed “bombs”, were made illegally by the government, part of a mass surveillance operation targeting 20,000 allies and opponents alike, and leaked to him by a whistleblower. — Reuters

Fitch downgrades Chicago but keeps investment-grade rating

posted by askousen – Tuesday, May 19 2015
…Moody’s Investors Service dropped the city to junk on Tuesday. Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services also downgraded the city this week to ‘A-‘, which leaves a split among rating agencies: only Moody’s believes the Windy City’s $8.1 billion of unlimited tax general obligation debt is below investment grade. — Reuters

Republicans claim enough votes to pass fast-track trade bill

posted by askousen – Tuesday, May 19 2015
Top Republicans predicted on Sunday that both chambers of Congress would muster the votes to pass the “fast-track” authority sought by President Barack Obama to negotiate major trade deals, despite opposition from Obama’s fellow Democrats. “Yes, we’ll pass it. We’ll pass it later this week,” Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said in an interview with ABC. — Reuters

George Stephanopoulis outed as Clinton crime family operative, has financial ties just like Monsanto

posted by askousen – Friday, May 15 2015
Mainstream media news anchors just can’t help lying all the time, it seems. Mere months after NBC News anchor Brian Williams was outed for utterly fabricating a long list of sensational news stories, ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulis has been exposed as a Clinton crime family operative who donated $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation and then deliberately withheld that information from his employer and ABC News viewers, reports Politico. — Natural News

Osama bin Laden was killed with help of Pakistanis, who held 9/11 mastermind prisoner at Abbottabad

posted by askousen – Friday, May 15 2015
Throughout his account, Hersh maintains, as many skeptics of the account have in recent years, that it “just made no sense that bin Laden was living in Abbottabad,” a military stronghold that is home to the nation’s equivalent of the West Point military academy, without the help of the Pakistanis. — NY Daily News

The Killing of Osama bin Laden

posted by askousen – Friday, May 15 2015
It’s been four years since a group of US Navy Seals assassinated Osama bin Laden in a night raid on a high-walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The killing was the high point of Obama’s first term, and a major factor in his re-election. The White House still maintains that the mission was an all-American affair, and that the senior generals of Pakistan’ s army and Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) were not told of the raid in advance. This is false, as are many other elements of the Obama administration’s account. The White House’s story might have been written by Lewis Carroll: would bin Laden, target of a massive international manhunt, really decide that a resort town forty miles from Islamabad would be the safest place to live and command al-Qaida’s operations? He was hiding in the open. So America said. — Seymour Hersh/London Review of Books

The US Is Hiding Its Nukes so Poorly, It Undermines the Point of Having Them

posted by askousen – Friday, May 15 2015
…The problem, he said, is that U.S. nuclear weapons sites have moved little since the Cold War. Plans to create mobile defense systems that can be moved and hidden were likewise scrapped in efforts to reduce the U.S. nuclear arsenal. “We’re just not hiding them,” Fisher said, noting that even a hobbyist using Google Earth could spot most of the land-based nuclear sites in the United States. — Epoch Times

DHS caught busing in illegal Somalis from Mexican border

CONFIRMED: US “Operation Rooms” Backing Al Qaeda in Syria

posted by askousen – Friday, May 15 2015
The war in Syria continues to drag on, with a recent and renewed vigor demonstrated behind an opposition long portrayed as fractured and reflecting a myriad of competing foreign interests. Chief among these competing interests, the public has been told, were the US and Saudis on one side, backing so-called “moderate rebels,” and Turkey and Qatar on the other openly backing Al Qaeda and its various franchises including the Islamic State (ISIS). — Land Destroyer blog

TPP Vote 2015: Senate Reaches Agreement To Move Fast-Track Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Authority

posted by askousen – Friday, May 15 2015
Senate Democrats reached a deal with Republicans Wednesday to move forward on U.S. President Barack Obama’s fast-track trade agenda, one day after pro-trade Senators stalled the bill by blocking debate, according to Politico and Roll Call.

A number of RAF jets have been scrambled to intercept two Russian long-range bombers off northern Scotland, the latest in a series of provocative operations by the country’s air force. As tensions between Nato and Russia have worsened over the Ukraine crisis, Moscow has significantly increased the number of military flights probing Nato airspace. The number of interceptions over the Baltic States trebled last year and Nato members including Britain have stepped up air policing support in the area. — Telegraph

Judicial Watch: TSA pat downs at 3 airports ‘violated,’ ‘humiliated’ passengers

posted by askousen – Tuesday, May 12 2015
…”That we had to fight and sue in court to get the TSA to disclose these shocking complaints shows the TSA is more interested in a cover-up than in addressing the problem that its employees violate innocent travelers too often, sexually or otherwise,” charged Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “With more than 56,000 employees and a $7.7 billion budget, the TSA can’t be trusted to its job of securing air travel. [Americans] simply trying to board a plane should not have to worry about being assaulted by federal employees working for TSA.” — Washington Examiner

As US News Media Practices Denial, Red Flags of Economic Collapse Still Apparent

To hear Big Media tell the story, 2014 has been a stellar year for the American economy. The Stock Market is roaring and passed the eco-fantasy-land high water mark of 18,000 just a few days ago, Christmas spending is up, we are told and so forth. But the colossal size of America’s swelling debt looms over our children, grand children and their children as well. There are a few news bloggers out there who are willing to publish actuality RE: the American economy.

Historically, nations which are sinking into the mire of mega-debt often turn to war to try to reverse their fortunes. War is a luxury which Americans well know we can no longer afford, literally. It’s bankrupting the wealth and resources of the greatest nation on earth. But some see the signs that a fresh new war is exactly what many banking cartel elites desire to have happen. Since we are perpetually at war somewhere in the Mideast, we turn instead to events in Russia, where indicators speak that only the collapse of the ruble will halt Putin’s Ukraine adventurism. It just so happens [ ahem ] that the recent plunge in oil prices has sent the ruble into a tailspin. I happen to feel that the oil price slide was not accidental, just a hunch. And I am keeping my eyes on Russia and Turkey in 2015.

Unemployment Rate - Official vs ShadowStats Alternate - U.S. Dollar Collapse 2015

We’re told in American news broadcasts that the unemployment rate has fallen to it’s lowest number in 18 years. Yet the numbers of shaggy homeless people holding up signs at street corners, wandering along highway medians pulling everything they own in a grocery cart, or accosting my vehicle every time I drive into town, are greater today than they were last month or last year.

Boarded up windows in haggard blighted buildings are obvious driving through town, where large retail sales spaces right on the main drag sit empty for months and months. “For Rent” and “For Lease” signs dot the urban downtown landscapes of nearly every small town on the Oregon coast. Ask anyone out here and they will tell you: It’s a struggle to find work, and it’s a struggle to keep it. Good jobs are sparse and when they appear thousands apply.

If you are inclined to question the “official” unemployment numbers that media outlets like CNN keep spouting, stop by http://shadowstats.com and have a look around. It’s an eye opener.

Contrary to the way the financial world may be presented in the mainstream media, the Fed is at the head of the global central banking crime syndicate cartel that runs the show Don Vito Corleone style, where should any foreign central banks get out of line will soon be in for a currency markets massacre as they see their currencies soar or collapse against the dollar and thus destroying their ability to export to the worlds largest consumer market which many economies are addicted to drug addicts style or manage inflation, as the official policy of the U.S. since the midst of the cold war has been to control the worlds financial system by means of operating a continuous large trade deficit, as I have covered at length several times over the years such as in my article of October 2010 (12 Oct 2010 – USD Index Trend Forecast Into Mid 2011, U.S. Dollar Collapse (Again)?).

For many years the Fed had been effectively inflating the whole world as I covered the dynamics of as long ago as in March 2011 – U.S. Dollar and Stock Market Trend Relationship, Currency and Real Wars”

#BREAKING: Controlled Demolition of the US Dollar & Mysterious Banker Deaths EXposed

Preface:  I began to suspect back in the fall of 2008 that something very ominous was afoot with the US banking system, the Federal Reserve and Wall Street. It looked to me exactly like a well planned “slow motion controlled demolition of the US dollar” over the past 5-6 years by Illuminati Elites working within the US government, Wall Street, and the biggest US banks. This was all taking place during the Obama presidency, during which time the national debt has been run up higher than at any time in US history, and now teeters at more than 17 trillion dollars, an unthinkable, unimaginable sum of money, a debt so huge, it can never be paid off – EVER.

My gut would rumble with each new bizarre development during the sudden and spectacular events of the fall of 2008, when according to a complicit media, [most of which is owned by conglomerates of the same Illuminati Elites who were orchestrating events], our own economy and thus the word economy, nearly collapsed entirely, due to a rash of sour mortgage investments. We were all told that only a sudden and massive bailout by American tax-payers would immediately stop the chain reaction of defaults that was happening, stop the financial bleeding and save the US economy.

Beginning there, in the fall of 2008, distinguished guest Douglas J. Haggman of Northeast Intelligence Network who spoke on Coast radio last night, explains why he believes that an ongoing controlled demolition of the US dollar is now underway, leading to the eventual collapse of the dollar and the introduction of a new NWO global currency. This show is probably one of the most important Coast shows I have listened to in decades, and I wanted to share it. This link is to the entire two and one half hour long show, so set the time aside and give this intelligence expert serious attention. I believe every tax paying American ought to hear what he has to say.

Here’s the show.

DHS Insider: Obama’s cyber warriors & preparing for collapse

Excerpt: RE: How the Cyber Warriors for Obama work online to discredit truth researchers, independent conservative journalists and alternative news reporters;

“The instructions seemed very specific. Infiltrate web forums, collect screen names, avatars, and posters’ tag lines, and attempt to resolve these to their actual identities. I read one paragraph that listed circumstances when the “asset” was only to monitor but do not disrupt without authorization. There was another section titled “Divert, Disrupt and Destroy,” listing “how to’s” in certain cases.

There was also a section on maintaining a social media presence, and another on the most effective use of Twitter.

Lastly, there was a “reference section,” which included statistics, specific language to use to marginalize different posters, and effective methods to discredit people while maintaining a sense of legitimacy.

It was surreal, to say the least.

Oh, one more thing that’s important. As I said, these “kids,” or young people I believe, are known collectively as “Cyber-Warriors for Obama.” The subheading was “And the truth shall set you free.”  Truth? Really? They were hired on their hacking abilities, or more precisely on their abilities to make postings through proxy servers and effectively use alternate identities and multiple e-mail addresses. Their purpose is to spread disinformation, not truth.

There were also motivational statements on various pages, including one that referred to Obama as the “Pharaoh of the Internet,” which I thought was an odd characterization.

But what’s important is that suddenly, through the use of Internet aliases, multiple e-mail addresses, and screen names, a project that employs 3,575 people will have the appearance and effectiveness of maybe 10,000 or more different people.”
