Brian Mast worked at World Patent Marketing with now-acting AG Matthew Whitaker.
Whitaker worked on Rick Perry 2012 with Anthony Bustamante.
Bustamante worked for Brian Mast's Congressional campaign where he used hacked data from GRU officer Guccifer 2.0.
This is awkward....
“There was data for our campaign available, so I used it,” Anthony Bustamante told POLITICO last year after The WSJ first reported his involvement. He told the Journal that “I did adjust some voting targets based on some data I saw from the leaks.” politico.com/states/florida…
Jack Posobiec, who has sent dozens of tweets in the last 24 hours promoting #/StopTheSteal on Twitter, claims this movement completely organic. He even presented a map showing that none of the tweets came from Russia. The map is real, but here's why he's wrong.
Hamilton 68's disclaimer states what they're showing are hashtags "promoted by Russia-linked influence networks on Twitter."
The content may or may not be from Russian sources, but it is from sources linked to Russian disinfo. Here's their latest image showing #/StopTheSteal
Posobiec's image from Trendsmap.com shows the tweets using #/StopTheSteal coming from inside the US.
However, the recent indictment of Russia's troll farm noted that one of the first things the group did was setup a VPN inside the U.S. to mask their true location.
"Roger Stone, a Donald Trump supporter pushing the idea that the elections are rigged, claimed Wednesday that Hillary Clinton met privately with Broward's elections chief, Dr. Brenda Snipes. Both sides deny it."
@GOPChairwoman "Stone promised that photos of the meeting would be available 'shortly' on the website infowars.com. But two days later, there were no photos on the website.
Good luck to Gab's new domain registrar @EpikDotCom@robmonster. I hope you realize who you're getting in bed with. Gab's anti-Semitism problem is endemic to the platform as a whole, from the company's CEO all the way down.
“Cultural suicide by demographic transformation must end,” King tweeted—in September—with a photo of him smiling alongside and summiting with Wilders and Frauke Petry, far-right leader of the party Alternative for Germany (AfD). thedailybeast.com/steve-king-the…
Andrew Torba thinks @MichaelEHayden is a bigger threat than the people who posted this on Gab.
... Okay then.
The Neo-Nazis and those who placate and enable them—such as Gab's CEO Andrew Torba—believe the press is the enemy. They justify it any possible way they can. Facts are never required for their arguments.
Now that Gab is offline, Doug, I'm wondering if Microchip or any of his Neo-Nazi pals have taken their talents to CounterSocial full time yet? Can you offer any insight, since you recommended and were active on both platforms?
No mention of @Parscale's support for Gab either. You know, the Neo-Nazi version of Twitter that Robert Bowers used. Gab users issued death threats daily to various perceived enemies, including journalists. They also advocated genocide against Jews and various other minorities.
Don't for one second think that Robert Bowers' statements were more radical or extreme than the average post on Gab. They were not. I could do one search and find dozens of posts that are as bad or worse than anything Bowers said.
Patrick Little is a Neo-Nazi holocaust denying "politician" who ran in the GOP primary for the chance to oppose Senator Dianne Feinstein in her 2018 re-election bid. After Little lost the primary, he went on a "Name the Jew" tour around the country. He used signs like these.
If you thought a van covered in stickers was going to convince the Pro-Trump conspiracy crowd of anything, I have a large dose of reality for you. Some people's opinions cannot be changed, no matter how much contradictory evidence you present them. Please keep that in mind.
There's plenty more, because there always is.
Alex Jones is jumping in now too.
Again, the layers of the conspiracy will only deepen. They will spread. The talking points will be amplified along the usual right wing media infrastructure.
The "migrant caravan" story might sound familiar for a reason. Hungary—like Trump, backed by Kremlin-friendly media outlets happy to blame all the world's woes on George Soros—pushed a very similar story back in 2015.
Focus on what matters. Not on shiny objects like this.
This story is absurd on so many levels. What's the "deep state's" motivation here? More Trump-friendly talking points in time for the midterms?
