#MongolsMC #Sturgis:One of the 1st requests #TrevorFitzGibbon made was asking for my #StopTPP videos, claiming he/#JacobAppelbaum (he liked to name-drop him, a lot, probably b/c I admired him) wanted to watch my "wonderful" videos, allegedly.
#PanQuake=#ScamQuake #TalkLiberation
#MongolsMC #Sturgis: I have no idea if #TrevorFitzGibbon is really in touch with Appelbaum and/or if his relationship is exactly how he characterized it...but what is clear is "Trev" probably targeted me for my #StopTPP work, IMO.
#PanQuake=#ScamQuake #TalkLiberation
#MongolsMC #Sturgis: I mean, why else would this creep, imo, being propped up by pro-#TPP #DevinNunes's attorney, inexplicably, be contacting a random, suburban activist, like me, for ~2+yrs, manipulating me, allegedly?

1. I don't think this is Baradar. Not even close. This is a younger voice. In addition, Baradar has a protruding right incisor that makes his speech distinct. Meter and breath is all wrong. This is not Baradar IMO. #Taliban #Haqqani #PanjshirGenocide #Panjshir
2. Here's the real one. I don't think it's even close. So IMO he's dead or severely injured. At least it's a reasonable conclusion. @DefenseIntel

Taliban leader Mullah Video Abdul Ghani Baradar's message to Afghans via @YouTube
3. If that assessment is accurate, then what are the Haqqani going to do now? The charade can't last. What's their plan? I would think that may be the reason that Zabiullah Mujahid flew to Mazar-e-Sharif. Designated survivor, while Haqqani and the Pak ISI complete the coup.

Bit of clarification on @JaredKushner vs Tom Barrack and #FARA. Kushner did not act as an unpaid agent of Saudi Arabia. Instead, he committed the far worse crime of selling US foreign policy for a bribe.…
Jared Kushner took a bribe to allow Saudi Arabia to blockade Qatar. This blockade affected the United States military, as @CENTCOM has a forward base in Doha.
Saudi Arabia and MBS, of course, per my sources, had evidence they bribed @JaredKushner which enabled them to blackmail the Trump administration. This is why #Khashoggi was not warned when Trump knew in advance he’d be assassinated…

@CT_Bergstrom Cambridge Analytica, Russian intel, etc could have blundered into using evolutionary algorithms in psychological warfare.

Evolutionary algorithms take a multitude of programs and throw them at the same problem. You eliminate the ones that fail & mix together those that succeed.
@CT_Bergstrom With automated and micro-targeted propaganda it's a similar process, informed by your targets' reactions to your latest efforts, their previous responses and psychographic profile.

You don't just elicit responses.

You drive them to particular decisions or attitudes over time.
@CT_Bergstrom But your key targets are not your only test subjects.

You're studying people on an immense scale.

So you have people with matching or near-matching profiles in less critical locations - non-swing states, voters w/more certain voting profiles, etc.

🚨The Feds conducted pre-dawn raids of Rudy Giuliani's home & business, along with the home of Victoria Toensing, who represented Dmitry Firtash, a pro-#Russia Ukrainian mobligarch under indictment in the US.

Team🇷🇺Traitor is gonna go thru some things.😎…
"The execution of search warrants is an extraordinary action for prosecutors to take against a lawyer, let alone a lawyer for a former president."

Meaning: prosecutors had to show evidence that Rudy had committed a CRIME to get the search warrants.

Prosecutors are investigating Giuliani's role in the ouster of then-Ambassador to #Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who blew the whistle on Trump's corrupt efforts (via Lev Parnas & Igor Fruman) to dig up/make up dirt on Biden in #Ukraine.

🔥A federal probe into the overseas and business dealings of Rudy Giuliani has resumed after being stalled last year amid Giuliani’s prominent role helping Trump’s attempt to overturn the election.…
“The full scope of the investigation is unclear, but it at least partly involves Giuliani’s Ukraine dealings, the officials said.”😎
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan pushed last year for a search warrant for records, including some of Giuliani’s communications, but officials in the Trump-era DOJ *refused* to sign off on the request.🤬

The Presidential Pardons, of which we will now have a slew, have nothing to do with Justice but will simply be a way to put lots of his White Collar criminal buddies back on the street! 😒

Remember! People like #PaulManafort and #RickGates were involved in more than tax fraud. They are international criminals who cynically profited from directly...
... undermining US Foreign policy in support of repressive, Authoritarian regimes.

@AWeissmann_ Since we're talking about Stone, and Facebook just shut down one of his social-media networks over there, perhaps it's time to discuss what the @FBI has known about how vulnerable they are since 1/2/20.

Also of interest to @GCHQ, @csiscanada @AIVD @CyberGovAU.

News Analysis🔎The @EpochTimes has so far counted 85 “Unusual” instances for the case of Lt. @GenFlynn, which has been filled with contradictions, falsehoods, apparent blunders, extraordinary moves, and strange coincidences. (Thread👇)…
The case of @GenFlynn is inevitably heading toward its conclusion.

While District Judge Emmet Sullivan is trying to keep it going, there’s only so much he can do since there’s nobody left to prosecute the case after the #DOJ dropped it last month.…
In the latest developments, the #WashingtonDC appeals court set a hearing in the case on June 12, while the #DOJ’s solicitor general himself, as well as 5 of his deputies, urged the court to order the lower-court judge to accept the case dismissal.

@ericgarland @thespybrief @nielsrosenquist One of the reasons it's useful to have multiple global, interlocking evidentiary maps showing hard, court-admissible evidence is it effectively *forces* many investigations to fuse.

It's not *just* where the money comes from and where it goes.
@ericgarland @thespybrief @nielsrosenquist Other threads go into this in more detail, but it's really more than you can fit into even epic Twitter threads.
@ericgarland @thespybrief @nielsrosenquist Example given: Flip everybody. Sift their computers/devices for more evidence, whether they cooperator or not. Turn cooperators phones into walking bugs. Dial-a-crook.

Here’s a full list of President Trump’s pardons and commutations today 👇
Full pardon went to former San Francisco 49ers owner Edward DeBartolo:

Former football player Jerry Rice thanked Trump.

Full pardon to junk bond king Michael Milken (Ugh, though he already served his time and had his sentence reduced for cooperating with the feds in previous years).

People seem distracted by other events, but Michael Flynn's defense team offered rare window today into his decision to plead guilty in Mueller probe. Weeks before he pled, his lawyers said they saw no 'significant' criminal exposure from his FBI interview…
Also defense insisted or discussed insisting that Flynn would not consider pleading guilty to a felony, which he soon did. They also dismissed as 'nothing to worry about' concerns abt potential conflict of interest stemming from firm's earlier advice to Flynn on his #FARA filing.
Flynn's new defense team is going whole hog with a strategy of blaming his former lawyers at Covington & Burling for giving him bad & conflicted advice. New lawyers dumped emails showing Covington planning to tout Flynn's plea deal 2 win other business even before deal was signed

RU Inquiry Review Is Expected to Undercut Trump/RW Narratives

Giuliani’s Firm Was in Talks to Receive $500k From Ukraine Prosecutor #FARA

Lutsenko said Giuliani told him he would have to hire a lobbyist to get the meeting.

“They even offered me such a company,” Lutsenko said.

Ballard or Livingston?🤔

He said that he was told it would be “impossible” for him to get the meeting without paying. #FCPA

"One [Firtash] had been indicted on federal bribery charges. The other [Kolomoisky] was embroiled in a vast banking scandal and was reported to be under investigation by the F.B.I."
"...they had one more thing in common: Both had been singled out by Rudolph W. Giuliani and pressed to assist in his wide-ranging hunt for information damaging to one of President Trump’s leading political rivals, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr."
"That effort culminated in the 7/25/19 ph call between the American and Ukrainian presidents that has taken Trump to the brink of impeachment and inexorably brought Mr. Giuliani’s Ukrainian shadow campaign into the light."

Recall, Firtash was supposed to be extradited in July.

1. There are a number of people who have earned a living as paid shills for the Turkish jihadists. Let's see that they all are investigated for #FARA violations. We need copies of propaganda pieces to turn over to @TheJusticeDept.
2. Also proof that their income comes from sources linked to Turkey. If they are paid they can be a proper targets IMO. Remember, Flynn violated FARA the day after the 2016 election. I reported last week's @washingtonpost Turkish govt propaganda piece lacking proper markings.
3. If you are a foreign government agent you need to register. If you publish their propaganda it has to include a warning notice that it is "informational materials." Fun fact the congressman who changed that wording from "propaganda" to "informational material went to prison
