"I would describe it as a primer that functions as an all-purpose tool for sites-yet-to-be-determined, ie. disinfo qua disinfo, rather than a topic-specific thing listing established strawmen, weakpoints, buzz phrases etc. Which is a shame since it's the latter I'd really like to see.Yes yes of course.
"The last couple of frames featured seem to take the topic a step further and in doing so defy comprehension at a quick glance. Clearly more study needed but keep your eye out for the phrase 'magic techniques and experiment'. Um... okay, didn't expect that. It's almost enough to make to make you think Aleister Crowley still treads the halls of GCHQ. Or his students at least.
"Then again this is Glenn Greenwald fronting for the Snowden archives. Perhaps it's what they want us to know about? Either way one can't fail to be impressed by Greenwald. He didn't so much as bat an eyelid at the thought of GCHQ training its staff in the use of magic. Nerves of steel obviously. Or a thousand yard stare? Something like that.
"Still, interesting no?
The link in question, where MISTER Snowden, and his handler, the lovely MISTER Greenwald, have recently divulged some dastardly presentation proving How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations, tells us things we pretty much already sussed out a long time ago. However for those who aren't "conspiracy theorists," it's rich stuff. Indeed. [We note that Tarpley ably explained, a year ago, why Snowden was a limited hangout.] Anyway, the issue leads somewhere else, even deeper into the conspiracy hole, where things get good. So let's see.
Russian Nesting Dolls Star Wars Version
Written by Mr. Greenwald, it begins thusly:
One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting (wink wink wink) to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction. It’s time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents.
It's TIME TO TELL a CHUNK of the story of the extreme tactics (of what we here out in the internet wilderness have known for years) (and not the whole thing now don't be getting greedy), complete with the relevant documents (HOT damn); reports the magnamimous Mr. Greenwald, from deep inside the bowels of the very wolf whose treacherous claws and teeth he will now describe for us.
OK. We are ready.
So, you can click through but it's a very bad story. It's a story of psychopathic asshole types who get trained by psychopathic psychiatric types, who basically all share the common denominator of zero ethics, and plot ways to destroy people's reputations, businesses, relationships -- WHATEVER -- to "game" outcomes in the herd attention space. In case you hadn't noticed this phenomenon yet.

Importantly, one slide explains the following:
Mirroring: People copy each other while in social interaction with them. - Body language, language cues, expressions, eye movements, emotions
Accommodation: Adjustment of speech, patterns, and language toward another person in communications. - People in conversation tend to converge, Depends on empathy and other personality traits, Possibility of over-accommodation and end up looking condescending
Mimicry: Adoption of specific social traits by the communicator from the other participant
QUESTION: CAN I GAME THIS?
What's so amusing is that, as a human, we can't help notice that human beings are the SUBJECT of the lesson here. The curious humans do these weird things, see? They copy each other, match each other's language. They converge emotionally, and they don't even try or have to think about this. It just happens naturally. SO Weird. The TASK AT HAND here is to somehow try to MIMIC these strange humans, without making an error in emotional connectivity. Be Careful! Only highly trained psychopaths can successfully infiltrate the deeply empathic human interaction space without making a mistake and coming off as a condescending blowhard. This training may take years of practice, and perhaps dozens of internet identities, before a sub-human troll might hope to successfully infiltrate some of the more intelligent human gathering spots. Still, the national security state has huge budgets and this is exceedingly important work, so they plug along bravely providing good employment opportunities for countless social engineers and their internet flunkies; and THAT'S what Greenwald's leaked document is all about.
Why is it time now to tell this chunk of the story? We don't know. It's just TIME, presumably because the operation has been ongoing in various stages and as the world metadata, in particular the hapless American zombie varietal, filters through the Israeli data collection centers, buckets of subject matter awareness such as knowledge about the total surveillance state are filled until ready to dump, and then it's time to start all over again with the next stage of awareness. In this case, the next stage of awareness covers the extreme tactics of manipulation and reputation-destruction.

As a matter of fact, if you listen to the latest show at Red Ice Creations, Henrik interviews Jon Rappoport on this very topic. The first hour is free and worth a listen. Rappoport makes the point that the entire Snowden operation, by nature of the extensive coverage received from corporate media, makes the JOB of the national security state much EASIER by encouraging people to Censor Themselves. It's the least you can do, human.
We did take the liberty of annotating one of the slides. In this slide you can see the amazing thoroughness of the social engineers. They study the humans in great detail, the way the humans think and communicate, and behave. Look at all this analysis, all for the sake of successfully deceiving and mind-fucking the stupid humans. Humans, this is A Lot Of Work! If only you would realize how HARD they have to try to MIMIC your natural human behavior, you might notice all the times that they fuck up by letting their natural psychopathic qualities burst through. It takes great effort to keep that in check while pretending to care about the never-ending stream of human feelings and sensibilities.
Did you really need Glenn Greenwald to leak the slides to know that the social engineers have been studying human behavior, legitimizing violence, targeting people, swarming the internet with vile trolls and making every effort to control the narratives? We hope not. It wasn't for nothing that the national security state budget ballooned dramatically over the past decade. It's a big payroll, and there are lots of people at the trough. How are you going to defend yourself against this? You can't really, but you can dramatically reduce their reach by 1) not watching teevee; 2) reducing or eliminating use of the social media (these two things combined = The Vortex of Stupidity); and if you blog 3) diligently moderating your comment section.
What is actually much more interesting than these mouth-breathers and their social engineering professors are the secret technologies NOT discussed in this controlled-leak CHUNK of the story. Rappoport touches on this in the Red Ice interview. He mentions Russell Tice. You may recall Tice because years ago he was the guy who said:
In my case, there’s no way the programs I want to talk to Congress about should be public ever, unless maybe in 200 years they want to declassify them. You should never learn about it; no one at the Times should ever learn about these things. (Source January 2006)Of course we still don't know what he means only eight years later, but it sounds very bad. Like you might want to hide under your bed for the rest of your life bad. We figure it is technology related. As in black ops technology. And sure enough, Russell Tice recently had something to say about Snowden's leaks.
ECI = Exceptionally Controlled Information. I do not believe Mr. Snowden had any access to these ECI controlled networks). VRK = Very Restricted Knowledge. I do not believe Mr. Snowden had any access to these VRK controlled networks.In the past we have made connections and assumptions about this secret black ops technology world, and the size of the gap between what we understand as the given state of technology, and the probable true hidden state of technology. We don't know the size of the gap but we deduce it is huge beyond imagining. We have written about it a few times:
These programs typically have, at the least, a requirement of 100 year or until death, ’till the person first being “read in” [i.e. sworn to secrecy as part of access to the higher classification program] can talk about them. [As an interesting sidenote, the Washington Times reported in 2006 that – when Tice offered to testify to Congress about this illegal spying – he was informed by the NSA that the Senate and House intelligence committees were not cleared to hear such information.]
It’s very compartmentalized and – even with stuff that they had – you might have something at NSA, that there’s literally 40 people at NSA that know that it’s going on in the entire agency.

The thing is, we must once again go near to the "alien" theme, because with all this horrible war business and poison business attacking the humans on the planet, we must be inexorably drawing closer to the day when the alien psyop will unfurl from the sky like some creepy vision from Revelations.
We deduce (see links above) that some of the hidden technology would strike us as "alien" technology. In contrast, what Snowden/Greenwald have leaked, bad as the documents are, simply reveal that we have a lot of ethically devoid people who make it their business to study human behavior and HARM humans, from the comfort of the government payrolls. As they say, no shit, Sherlock. Thanks for the tip you're a real pal.
Poor Pal! (See the post alien fail for context.)
Suppose you were a fish. A nice big ocean fish, like a striped bass. Thirty plus pounds, maybe much more, of simple fish, living happily in the ocean, swimming far and wide in deep water and sometimes going to the shallows, to hide among the rocks. Life is good.
One fateful day, something goes terribly wrong. While snacking on sea worms and little fish, you bite something hard and sharp. It pierces your mouth -- agony. Bleeding, you struggle, but against your will, you are dragged by this sharp thing, by an unknown but powerful force coming through a thin cord attached to the sharp thing. WTF? The more you struggle, the deeper it gouges your mouth. You become exhausted, but still pulled up and up, against your will, toward the surface. Finally you are pulled out of the ocean and into the blazing light, landing in a strange ship. The light is so bright., and suddenly you can't breathe. A monstrous creature grabs you and roughly wrestles the sharp metal thing from your mouth. Relief, but, the monster handles you, it seems to be weighing and measuring you. It holds you up triumphantly, making strange noises with the other monsters. You are powerless.
Either one of two things will happen. You will die and surely the monster will cut up your body and eat you; or the monster will throw you back into the ocean for some inexplicable reason. Stunned, you will slowly recover from the agony and confusion of the struggle, the bright light, the ship, the suffocation, and the monsters. Maybe you will forget, but you will have a scar, and somewhere deep in your brain you will not forget.
It's not an alien abduction. It's just fishing. Sport. There's no mystery up here. It's cold beers and good times for the humans, and hellish confusion for the fish.
So, what if some of the black technology, the things Russell Tice hints darkly about, may involve us being treated like so many fish. Used for sport, entertainment, a food supply. Technology that is so evil, so inhumane, that our great great great grandchildren could learn what happened to us after we are long gone and buried, with the same detachment we might look at pictures of the Civil War.
The sad fate of those poor people back then.
Nameless, confined to two dimensions, and without color.
We are not nameless, none of us at any time. The reality of this man's life and death was technicolor and multi-dimensional. The passage of time doesn't actually make us nameless, colorless and two-dimensional unless we let it.
Our lives are technicolor and multi-dimensional. On that much, can we agree?
Not sure where to go from here. We've been reading a lot of different things, and listening to various podcasts about the secret technology. Red Ice Creations has the motherlode of secret technology experts. Some of them seem legit and others seem inexplicably naive, like the guy who is an artist with amazing access into secret hangers with UFO-type-US military aircraft, who claims he just figured out he could use google earth a couple of years ago. I think it was this guy. Sure, whatever. There is a lot over there at Red Ice. Henrik is a great host, and there's a big conference coming up in about a week about the secret space technology. NO DOUBT the spooks will be there posing as researchers, but also, no doubt people like you and me can listen to how they finesse this.
In the other corner, we have concepts like the Corrupt Demiurge. IE: The aliens are not really aliens they are multi-dimensional beings who have been here for thousands of (our) years.
If you can imagine a Venn diagram, with a circle for religious theory, and a circle for space technology, and these two circles intersect -- that intersection is the thing we are concerned with -- the alien psyop. And if you can imagine being a fish hauled up into a boat, you can begin to grasp what we might be faced with as multi-dimensional creatures who don't necessarily have access to the dimension next door unless we're pulled over there against our will by psychopathic beings using technology for sport.
And that's the thing we suspect is the real story that you should not expect to hear from Team Snowden Greenwald, lovely and connected as they are.
Just a guess.
Love and courage to all the humans out there.
