“A HuffPost investigation in 2017 revealed that @TEN_GOP, a pro-Trump Twitter account run by the Kremlin’s IRA, retweeted Posobiec more than any account in a large data set of significant conservative accounts.” 5/ #PosobiecRussia huffpost.com/entry/the-vast…
“Posobiec was the first real amplifier of forged documents about Macron, according to an investigation by the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab. He then promoted a cache of Russia-hacked Macron campaign emails.” 6/ #PosobiecRussia
9/ “Posobiec has…promoted ‘Foundations of Geopolitics,’ a book by the Russian neofascist Aleksandr Dugin that explains how to undermine American democracy by inflaming racial tension & chaos thru political sabotage & disinformation.” #PosobiecRussia huffpost.com/entry/the-vast…
11/ “Manafort shared polling data on 2016 election with elusive Russian [Konstantin Kilimnik] – Mueller” 1/8/19 theguardian.com/us-news/2019/j…
13/ “The #MacronLeaks hashtag, from the moment Posobiec tweeted it, was the primary social media propellant of the hacked Macron data, according to cyber-intelligence analysts at the Atlantic Council's Digital Forensics Research Lab.” nationalobserver.com/2017/05/09/opi…
14/ “They also concluded that bots played a significant role from the outset. Some 40 minutes later, Wikileaks tweeted the link with Posobiec's hashtag, and the Internet erupted.”
15/ “The appearance of bot activity, observed independently by both the DFRL and Belgian academic Nicolas Vanderbiest, from the first minutes after Posobiec's tweet, strongly suggests a planned and coordinated campaign.”
16/ “Others online also spotted anomalous activity patterns in two Macron hashtags used by Posobiec. No evidence directly connects Posobiec to observed bot activity, and he denies using them.” Image
17/ Posobiec also “has a Russian social media profile page, thanks he says, to his fiancée [who he married in 2017], Tanya Tay, who hails from Belarus, in the former USSR.” #PosobiecRussia Image
18/ “Both Posobiec and Cernovich have history with online viral fake news campaigns... All three of their major campaigns — #Pizzagate, #SyriaHoax, and #MacronLeaks — involved Russian-hacked data or a Russian-led campaign.” #PosobiecRussia

23/ “Trump’s First Reaction to Charlottesville Was to Retweet [Jack Posobiec, a far right associate of Steve Bannon, Roger Stone, Mike Flynn, & David Horowitz]” - July 2017 #PosobiecTrump observer.com/2017/08/donald…

25/ “Donald Trump Jr. Pictured at 'We Build the Wall' Event With Neo-Nazi Collaborator Jack Posobiec” 8/24/20 #PosobiecDonJunior splcenter.org/hatewatch/2020…
27/ Posobiec was conveniently situated in PA during the 2016 Democratic National Convention protest, which was triggered by Wikileaks’ publication of hacked DNC emails. After one Wikileaks DNC email dump, Bannon’s publicist (Alexandra Preate) texted Stone “well done.”
33/ Oh yeah. Posobiec also doxxed one of Roy Moore’s accusers. See post 32.
34/ Posobiec has more than once tweeted “1488” (which means Heil Hitler) & used the echo symbol (triple parentheses, which are used to target Jews w/ hate). By @MichaelEHayden splcenter.org/hatewatch/2020…
36/ BTW, Posobiec is coming for our kids. In May, he left OANN and joined Charlie Kirk’s Turning Point USA, which specifically targets kids and young adults (kindergarten through college) for far right radicalization. thedailybeast.com/notorious-pizz…

😳More ominous news for Jews in America. Mike Flynn, who says that America should have only “one religion,” recently spoke at a John Hagee church. Hagee claimed that god himself had sent Adolf Hitler, to persecute Europe's Jews & so chase them towards the "promised land", … 1/
2/ … , the only place, per Hagee, that god wanted Jews to live.
3/ I had not heard of John Hagee before. I learned this from @brucewilson.

This seems like a frightening development from the MAGA loving Florida Governor who legalized running over protestors & requiring that students & teachers register their political views. 1/

@B52Malmet Mike Flynn said it: one religion (Christianity) and a very extreme version of it, meaning oppression & discrimination against people who are LGBTQ or practice a different religion. They also want to dismantle most federal agencies & federal regulations. No more DOE, EPA, SSA. 1/
@B52Malmet Immigrants are screwed. Protesters & opponents of the regime will be screwed & silenced. I imagine there will be show trials of some leading Democrats, though I’m less sure if that. 2/
@B52Malmet Definitely more book burnings & rewriting of history. Muslims will face the most discrimination, but it will bleed over to Jews as well. I worry that Jews will be pressured to go “home” to Israel (even if they are American citizens), but I’m not sure about this part. 3/

Mike Lindell is a grifter & an empty suit. But @rawstory itself falsely claims that if the voting machines themselves don’t connect to the internet, “the ‘hacker’ wld have to go to each electronic voting machine in each polling place in every state.” 1/ rawstory.com/thanks-a-thon-…
In fact, @rawstory’s claim is one of the original (since debunked) lies that drew me to election security advocacy in the first place, as I wrote here. 2/ jennycohn1.medium.com/why-have-so-ma…
If you want something shorter, I wrote this a few years ago. 3/ jennycohn1.medium.com/all-voting-mac…

“Biden’s Global Democracy Summit Raises an Awkward Question: Can Ours Endure? In the past year, the prospects for improving American democracy have dimmed considerably.” By @suehalpernVT, 11/30/21 1/ newyorker.com/news/daily-com… via @NewYorker
2/ “In March, …, Freedom House, a democracy-watchdog group, ranked the state of democracy in the US well below that in Chile, Costa Rica, & Slovakia, citing gerrymandering, the influence of money in politics, and the disenfranchisement of people of color…”
“‘A change of president is not gonna make [these issues] go away,’ Sarah Repucci, the group’s VP for research and analysis, told the Guardian at the time.” Indeed, in the months since Biden took office, the prospects for improving American democracy have dimmed considerably.” 3/
