Paid Gov’t and Corporate Internet Trolls Are Real

21st Century Wire says…

You know them… 

Their mission has nothing to do with national security, fighting terrorism, and catching criminals. Their mission is to distort public opinion and spread propaganda in order to generate a ‘consensus reality’ – and they are responsible for polluting the internet with much of the garbage in comment sections, Facebook groups, forums and bogus blog posts.

They jump into productive online discussions and civil debates, and undermine them, ruin them, with uninvited insulting, racist and inflammatory comments. If only it stopped there.

The secretive  GCHQ and JTRIG training manual which was leaked via Glenn Greenwald and Ed Snowden show an even dirtier side to our governments’ new ‘digital Stasi’. Their report means that the public can finally put an ugly face on this disease which is ruining the internet. First Look explains:

“Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics: (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets; and (2) to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable. To see how extremist these programs are, just consider the tactics they boast of using to achieve those ends: “false flag operations” (posting material to the internet and falsely attributing it to someone else), fake victim blog posts (pretending to be a victim of the individual whose reputation they want to destroy), and posting “negative information” on various forums.”

Now that the cat is out of the bag…


Where do trolls come from?

Brasscheck TV

We’ve posted this on our Facebook page when it first came out. Now here’s a video that explains it in detail…

We’ve been victims of this going back as far as 1997 when a police agent hired to sabotage the Critical Mass bicycle ride in San Francisco launched a smear campaign against me for exposing the elaborate plot and her role in it. I sued her and won a $5,000 judgement which was overturned by a corrupt San Francisco judge who literally dozed off during the trial.

We also reported about this when the US Army Corps of Engineers got on the web after the federal levee failures in 2005 (Katrina) that killed over 1,000 people, rendered over 100,000 homeless and caused $100 billion in financial losses.

Corps computers were used to post insulting, racist and inflammatory remarks and disrupt any forum – anywhere in the world – where people were asking about the Corps role in the catastrophe. Nola.com owned by the New Orleans Picayune has all the data on the posts to its site and not only will not release it but fired the employee who collected the data and was about to turn it over to investigators.

We're covering news you won't necessarily find in the mainstream, and things which regularly confuse career politicians, FOX and CNN watchers... #SundayWire
Neither #TRUMP , nor #HillaryClinton will be able to "fix" this system. It's much bigger than the puppets: https://t.co/ADXO5RiSLm - 10 hours ago

    AIPAC and the 54 Jewish organizations have been doing this for years against our Congress using ‘sockpuppet; technology, inflating their numbers and creating a false consensus of fact and reality.

  • solar toad

    We’re never going to get anywhere until we keep exposing what I call the “Administrator Class”. The Administrator Class consists of all those “everyday” people who work for the NSA, FBI, CIA, Homland Security, FDA, and all the other agencies of the Government. It must be nice to have a nice pay check but it is not nice when it is at the expense of the entire nation. Between 1-2 Million people work for the NSA alone.

    We have to realize also that when I say they work for all these government organizations, it also includes the Banking Cartel and other Corporate entities, because the Government is controlled by the Privately owned corporations and Banking System. There is little left of “We the People”.

  • bankrupted taxpayer

    do the paid trolls do so from public paid govt locations ?

    work at govt job and sit on the computer while at work and earn pension ?

  • Carl Jones

    I think the above article is a bit tame! There was a story in the Guardian about a journo watching his text disappear from his screen and I tell a bit about my own experience on the Snowden Training Guide article, so read that and see the abuse I get from Mark Rushing! Mind you, I turned him over in my reply.lol

    Sure, in the early days there were armies of trolls. I read there were somewhere around 100,000 pro Israeli trolls working the forums globally. I used to joke with obvious trolls that they were on the night shift at GCHQ, or in the basement at Langley or that they were some medically retired bitter and twist vet from some pathetic Amerikan war lost by design…not nice, but in those days I was leaning!

    Most of the stuff that I post about, they don`t actually engage in debate…when you are on a unique line of thought, they don`t want to give you any creedance to your idea[s]. The most common reply is “do you need a new tin-foil hat”. Or “tell us about your theory on reptilians posing as humans”…that`s the sort of rubbish they come out with.

    But there is a new level that is not mentioned above and that is advanced computer code that poses as a human commenter/troll. We all know about computer programs that can write an average novel? Well, they now have code that can overwhelm comments threads. You could be posting and have multiple code bots interacting with you and for the most part you would have no idea they weren`t human! Beware of the nice reply which is there to set you up for a bashing. Very often, if its a nice reply with no specific content, then ignore it. You see, this code bot might have posted a long line of blatantly offensive comments which other human posters have read…the code bot then replies to you with a nice comment….IF you reply in a nice way, your reputation just got sideswiped!!!!!

    The US and UK government through their various intelligence outfits and military have spent huge sums of money on this sophisticated software. So you could have one human geek at say GCHQ (outside in one of cabins) running multiple code bot trolls. These trolls can operate at any intellectual level and have access to any published data, report or media content. So the code bot troll could enter a debate on climate change and argue that he/she was at the latest climate conference in XYZ and quote from what was said and published….this adds a huge amount of weight to their agenda. Then you have comments threads which appears to have multiple intellectuals debating on a level that is frankly beyond most people…this is a statement to most skeptics to stay away, or we will blind you with science…these are easy to spot…how often do you get 3/4/5 professor level people to spend an inordinate amount of time debating with each other on something they all basically believe on???

    You will notice that many newspaper articles simply don`t allow you to comment on direct political comment from politicians. David Cameron and William war criminal Hague get special protections. You never get the opportunity to comment on any of their press pontifications!

    I`ll tell you something I have been posting about over the last 4/5 years and I will first set this in context.

    When I was a teenager (52), I remember an edition of BBC Tomorrows World where I was told that “within 30 years, we will control the weather” (and I am not talking about seeding clouds!!

    However, once the US military realised this technology was the most powerful WMD known to man, the longstanding human quest to control the weather was dropped by the scientific community (unless you were directly involved) and MSM. The deliberate dropping of this longstanding human quest to control the weather, ran in conjunction with the sham of global warming where the sheeple were conditioned to believe the weather was getting worse, more violent and unpredictable…an excellent cover for weather/natural event warfare!!

    Hurricane Katrina made Bush`s mates a FORTUNE…all those lush rebuilding contracts hand out to Bush`s chums and paid for with money raised on the debt markets. The remarkable collapse on the Minneapolis bridge…yet more lush contracts to rebuild this important NAFTA transport link!!

    The repeated flooding in various areas of the UK has allowed the cabal to get insurance money into the High Street economy. This year, the cabal has gone full tilt in their desperation to save the “sinking” UK economy. All those very expensive homes flooded in the Thames valley are going to require lots of refurbishment…lots of new flash kitchens with new appliances…don`t forget all those ruined cars!!!lol

    Sure, I`ve had comments, but mainly comments from real people who might not have taken what I have said fully on board , I do detect that they are certainly giving it some thought…and really that is just what I hope for. Just to get people to look at things from another perspective. In fact, I was amazed that one of my flooding comments was published on the Daily Mail!! At my last viewing, I got 39 upticks and only 19 down ticks. So it just shows, people are starting to think outside the box and question the purpose of events that are mostly constructed to distract us.

    People only have so much emotional energy and if you can find systems that keep draining this energy, it allows those in power to pull off more crimes.

    BTW, I have been highly active posting since 9/11 (that day..it really did change my world) and I have very thick skin when it comes to trolls. In fact, I like them, because it can reveal their concern about what you are saying. But after years of posting on weather/natural event warfare, I haven`t had many trolls. Maybe this is an area where they just don`t want to go?lol

    • ander

      Do you need a new tin-foil hat? LOL.
      I’d like to see a troll bot program approach anywhere near spiritual truths. There are just some places they will never get us or dare approach. Thank God

      • ander

        A page and a half of reading into 1 kings 18 gives a good accounting of the troll bots future.

      • Carl Jones

        If you say so.

    • Alex Constantine

      IT”S THE JOOS!

    • wylekat

      The most common reply is “do you need a new tin-foil hat”.

      I have an answer for that:

      The trolls don’t reply. (usually)

      My other fave is when a post/ reply is so lacking in grammar, spelling, or much else, is Word Crimes.

  • Peter Greenall

    Absolute rubbish!

  • abinico

    Note that the story is by RT. RT has some of the best coverage nowadays – bit ironic that to get real news you have to go to Russia.

    • Johnathan Myers

      We are more likely to get the truth about our government from a Russian Media outlet than our own, and vice versa.

      • Serg Derbst

        Unfortunately not vice versa. “Western” media is nothing but lying or hate-mongering when they write about Russia. Best sources about Russia are in Russian, but luckily there’s plenty of translated stuff available.

  • trololol

    this is a site for a bunch of losers and obama is gay and can suck my dick

    • Be careful what you ask for….he may hear you..and send for you….Michele too….Bad idea…..

  • trololol

    this is a site for a bunch of losers obama can suck my dick

  • In other news, DUH!


    JUST A HEADS UP FOR PEOPLE ON GOOGLE+ eeeaten is a government troll view my google+ to read her comments and share so others can block her

    • Fred smith

      So true!
      I have just discovered that fact myself.

  • Simon

    I want job doing this! Somone please contact me. I am intelligent, aware of current affairs, inventive and adaptive, used to social media. Contact me 🙂

  • hvaiallverden

    Yup, hehe, like the Google if something suddely getts tracktion and atracts people, they will after a while flood their seatch result with sites aka flatearth and reptiles.
    I have encountered this many times, and lately in the teachings of Islam and in Quantum physics, where a new world is emerging, the electic unverse, and gravity is an lame duck and dont even exist other than an media infested scam, to keep the scammer humping along their so called physics, witch is wurse than AGW, because AGW is a preschoollevel scam, compared to the physics scams that I consder to be wurse, since its our future and energy.
    Suddenly during the last 3 months, the ZOogle have injected this shitholes into thei seatch result, thats why Zoogle is crapp.
    The reason for me NOT to use others is that this injection of shit is basicly an Zoogle task, but the other seatch engines use the same logaritms aka web bot, akaka Hasbaratnjiks.

    The latest from the scammers are more of an direct attac, of course imacualte camuflaged but stil an attac, and now the Norwegian PCs foot soldiers are targeting us directly.
    Yea, fat, white and fifthy, are the PC main enemy, fat well, but the rest fits.
    So their problem is annonymeti, and they hate it.
    I await an attac on dyslectics as well, they have, but stoped when I writed that our Kings are dyslectics, Olav 5 couldnt read/write at all.
    They are dowright threatening people, and this is alwed by our MSM.

    I have no problems with revealing my name, witch is totall unintresting but I dont trust them at all, untill some of my family is out of school, then I may do it, but all in all Im just a nobody from nowhere.
    PS, the south varanger (sør-varanger) is the Vraganian home land, and home to my people, the Finns.
    The border crossing is infact just some few klicks from our familys ground, and only my people arent aloed to move home, russiand and norwegains have taken everything, incl our farms, fisheries and so on, and stil after 70 eyears, only Skoltics and others now dying tribes of white people, are stil denied to go home, thats why I dont belive Putin for an splitt second, no more than our own, the rotten Khazars whom calls them selfs Norce.
    There are ruins, ten thousands years old, boats , graves are litered, but stil I cant gett thrue.
    I will hammer them to day I die, or they stop lying, witch I know they never ever will, unless we the people make The revolution.


    • Seems like there are less trolls about while Congress is in session or when it’s time for certain politicians to tee off or enjoy sumptius meals on someone else’s dime…..LOL HAHAHAHAHAHA PROBABLY TRUER THAN WE KNOW HUH?………. AIN’T THAT RIGHT “MISTER SCHUMER’? ARE YOU ON TODAY “CHUCK”? “DIANE”? “NANCY”? “MiZ JACKSON LEE? LOL HAHAHAHA” HOOT HOOTIE HOOT HOOT!MICHELLE, I SEE YOU HIDING OVER THERE IN THAT CLOS…. UH ER I MEANT THAT CORNER…..


  • desertspeaks

    govt trolls are easily dispensed with when you ask the right question! For instance,
    Can you “the troll” personally attest to what you’re saying and back it up with tangible, factual, personal firsthand, irrefutable, verifiable evidence! NOTE; feelings, beliefs, opinions, hearsay, rumors, nor their PAID agenda are not nor will ever be considered evidence. They’ll resist the question but you just hammer them with it and they go away!
    When the troll interjects themselves with nonsense/off topic comments, USE THE IGNORE BUTTON!

  • yEshUA ImmAnUEl * ben-‘Adam

    There is a few of them on this comment board right now.

  • yEshUA ImmAnUEl * ben-‘Adam

    A way to tell if its a paid poster is by looking at the comment/upvote ratio. If you see more upvotes than comments then its fake.

  • zencowboy61

    You can easily tell paid govt trolls when you tell them you are former Military….they start calling you out fake and other useless names……for regular people don’t do that to combat veterans….

  • implicaverse .

    If you ever visit Reddit, you’ll see that the top of the comment threads are dominated by inane off-the-wall discussions even just trails of pathetic puns. Try to post something serious, and it gets buried and downvoted. Reddit has been effectively neutralized by the trolls.

  • dogmatix

    Your tax dollars at work.

  • Michael Riggans

    Didn’t take long for the trolls to appear on here did it.

  • Sara11199

    I’m collecting racist trolls that are all part of the same network or entity. Click on my pic and look at who I am following. It’s the dumbest, most pathetic bunch of trolls I’ve ever seen and the easiest to uproot. I’m almost up to 100!
