Democrats Created Fake "Russian Bots" to Help Doug Jones Win the Alabama Special Election Against Roy Moore

False flag. For real.


As Russia's online election machinations came to light last year, a group of Democratic tech experts decided to try out similarly deceptive tactics in the fiercely contested Alabama Senate race, according to people familiar with the effort and a report on its results.

The secret project, carried out on Facebook and Twitter, was likely too small to have a significant effect on the race, in which the Democratic candidate it was designed to help, Doug Jones, edged out the Republican, Roy S. Moore.

Note they immediately claim it was too small to impact the race -- and yet they've been claiming for two years that a hundred thousand or so dollars spent on FaceBook ads in the five billion dollar plus 2016 Presidential race was nigh decisive and an assault on our very democracy.

But this $100,000? Pish-posh. 'Tis nothing.


...

An internal report on the Alabama effort, obtained by The New York Times, says explicitly that [the "cyber security firm" here] "experimented with many of the tactics now understood to have influenced the 2016 elections."

The project's operators created a Facebook page on which they posed as conservative Alabamians, using it to try to divide Republicans and even to endorse a write-in candidate to draw votes from Mr. Moore. It involved a scheme to link the Moore campaign to thousands of Russian accounts that suddenly began following the Republican candidate on Twitter, a development that drew national media attention.

...

"We orchestrated an elaborate 'false flag' operation that planted the idea that the Moore campaign was amplified on social media by a Russian botnet," the report says.

They're now claiming that this was purely a scientific experiment and that they did not intend to hurt Roy Moore's campaign or depress Republican turnout or excite Democrat turnout.

I guess that's just a bonus coincidence that it worked out so nicely for them.

Let's check in at how the New York Times reported this expenditure of $100,000 in confessed false flag operation in a race costing $51 million, versus how it reported about the same amount being spent to influence a five billion dollar plus presidential election:



It's almost as if it's not an attack on our very democracy if it's intended to help Democrats -- which I guess is why the Democrats never fussed themselves much about seventy years of Soviet agitation on behalf of the American left and Democrat Party.

A quibble. The American Left have always been Soviet apologists. That wasn't necessarily true of the Democratic Party (e.g. Sen. Pat McCarren) for many years but the Left took over the Democrats in the 70s.

And the "outrage!" and "deep concern!" about "attacks" on "our democracy!" are idiotic. We rightly attempt to influence all sorts of situations, including elections, around the world, where it matters to us, offers advantages, etc. As does everyone else who can do so.


Many US states would not have their elections recognized by US, or the EU, or the UN (which is just us and/or the Euros, in reality, on things like this) due to the lack of election integrity that we insist on in election processes we assist overseas. Wayne County MI has worse election integrity than most Third World elections. The judiciary mocks the country repeatedly, pretending to believe that voter ID is anything but easy, normal, and should be always required. Gawd only knows what potential massive fraud vistas are opening up with all the stupid changes that allow "vote harvesting".


AL voters are to blame for electing Jones. Period.

That is a much discussed topic. The true believers, the opportunists, the uninformed, the useful idiots,....

Personally, I think it is the short bus of ideology. Like going to the special ed class and giving them the tools to build a nuclear bomb. I can excuse young people who lean that way, but anyone with any knowledge or life experience who thinks it can work must be an idiot (meaning, well below average intelligence) or an evil bastard that knows it is bs and just wants the power.

I don't even know what sexual assault means anymore, what sunk Moore though was a guy in his 30s "dating" high school aged girls looks like a predator. And he admitted he did date girls with that sort of age gap.

It was different back then, but it's still not a good look. Especially since he made himself to be some sort of super Christian. And the guy was a prosecutor at the time.

The Kavanaugh stuff was straight up bullshit.

One possibility is that they understand it is rubbish, but they truly think it is no worse than the alternative (freedom.) That is, they rationalize it.

Hastert sexually assaulted young boys like Gerry Studds or Harvey Milk. It is almost certain elements of the left knew what he was doing and helped him cover it up - the MSM knew by at least 2006 (as they've admitted) and probably knew since they sunk Newt G. Note that the left sank Newt G and Newt G's chosen successor by getting a hold of information about both men's personal lives (they were having affairs).


Moore was accused of sexually assaulting a girl. The woman in question lost a law suit in front of Moore and admitted to fabricating some of her "evidence".

gone, or is it just a big kabuki game with them. Do they believe their
own lies?

It is a mix. Most of the power brokers don't. They are using this as a means to power. And you can see proof of this in how they keep building mega-mansions in areas that global warmination is apparently going to destroy.


For most of the low level people? Believing is like a religion for them. The fact that their religion changes, fundamentally, every year doesn't phase them which is...odd.

For the LIVs? The only thing they hear is that the left is caring an wants to help them.

166 Gub thread!


Weasel - my current approach, which remains academic since I haven't reloaded the brass more than once, is to use the brass from HXP surplus (loading for the M-1) 3 times, then recycle it. So, a total of four firings.


I visually inspect each case from the first reloading on, of course.


I don't think I want to get into doing the "paper clip test" or similar to 1,200 cases, when I get to 3 reloadings/4 total firings, so I assume a safe approach is just to junk the brass at that point.


Of course I might just set it aside, in the event I get a Springfield to reload for down the road (where I wouldn't be all that concerned about the cases, and also could more easily do close inspection for a much smaller number of cases).

I was completely dismissive of the stuff against Moore until I heard his interview on Hannity. It was a lot of "well, I always asked their parents first if I did date teenagers when I was that much older" and I was like WTF.

The amount of stretch (actually flow) results from excessive headspace - a condition common in loosely chambered (military) rifles. I'd think you could get quite a few more reloadings from brass, though. Have you considered annealing? I would think the likelihood of case head separation at 4 firings would be low.

Which can be mostly mitigated by truly mastering the Natural Point of Aim physical discipline when behind the rifle in the prone.

That, and an effective Hasty Sling, as taught in many an Appleseed Course.

A quality "snap cap" dummy cartridge for Dry Fire practice, and lots of properly coached Dry Fire practice, will pay dividends on Live Fire days.

If the shooter will DILIGENTLY improve their "behind the rifle" basics and skills *before* the first round goes downrange...

Then that first and many subsequent rounds ought to land in a much cozier group than without that necessary Dry Fire practice.

Whole lotta improvements can be made to one's shooting, without firing a single round.

211 Weasel, yes the extraction process is extremely violent. I spend probably 50% of the total time on 30-06/M-1 reloading just filing down the dents and deformations affecting the extracting groove, so I can get the brass into the shell-holder on the press.


As I approach the reality of this (I am still shooting through my HXP for the first time, plan to shoot it all up, I have new-production Prvi ammo as my "reserve"), I will revisit the issue. CMP forums naturally have lots of experienced reloaders for the M-1; I've read through many threads there the past few years, seems like the lazy/careful sorts go to 4-5 firings and recycle, while some of the more experienced/adventuresome inspect each case and get 8 or more uses out of each.


I kind of like my own just-improvised idea of 4 M-1 firings followed by retirement to the bolt-action pasture, for use with a Springfield. Of course I'll have to actually get one of those rifles. Small detail, for the future.

225 With ballot harvesting, democrats have discarded trying to get more people to vote for them and gone straight to finagling the count. It used to be that you had to either cast a ballot in person, mail in an absentee ballot, or drop it off at the proper location. In all cases the voter had to do that himself. California made it legal for a third party to pick up your ballot and drop it off for you. No way to corrupt that, nosiree.

235 It's almost as if it's not an attack on our very democracy if it's intended to help Democrats -- which I guess is why the Democrats never fussed themselves much about seventy years of Soviet agitation on behalf of the American left and Democrat Party.

I wouldn't mind so much if Democrats would just admit that they think theirs is the side of righteousness and that justifies anything that aids them, and that anything that aids conservatives is immoral. But they don't say that. They try to frame things in terms of neutral principles "Whoever uses fraud to influence elections is bad" and then backpedal when they're caught doing it. That's what's so irritating. Stop claiming to adhere to some neutral principle.

You're most welcome, BifB... and cheers to you for already being in the proper practice groove, there!

Seeing as you're on the right track, I'll leave you with the one tip I'd give if I was standing there coaching you.

Put every bit of your mental focus into not only your sight picture and "the break"....but also to the FOLLOW THROUGH.

Those sights ought to be as exactly on-target *after* the sear breaks, as before.

Get that as a result in your dry fire practice, and I'll hope that you see your desired result!

That's where I go back to my previous comment about how nice it would be having a government that was actually interested in accurate voting enough to insure the same by prohibiting bullshit such as this.

I suppose I should take my ass-fucking like a man and not complain since it does absolutely no good.

I'm reasonably sure there are already laws that prohibit voter fraud, they just aren't enforced, just like the border laws and sanctuary cities. We don't need any more laws that will just get ignored by Progs.
This "social justice" bullshit is illegal too. As one of the Morons (named "An Observation") has already pointed out several times, it's illegal to prevent someone from exercising their rights, but it's already happening with no repercussions at all.
