How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations - Commentary and Links Included
In the truth community, we enjoy diversity within our various groups and subjects of study. Perhaps one of the most enjoyable aspects of this community is the ability to openly gather and converse about our own personal views of the world. We enjoy theorizing about what the corporate media has kept from us and about how to liberate ourselves from the ever-present thought control which many of us have become fed up with.
It has, however, become abundantly clear that certain interests within these groups do not appreciate open and authentic conversation. Instead, these individuals seem to have a destructive agenda when entering into these otherwise peaceful online communities.
By now, most—if not all of us—are at least somewhat familiar with the concept of trolling. We have been unfortunate enough to encounter these individuals online and have seen their attempts at community disruption firsthand. Studies have shown these people have a very high probability of being sadists, narcissists, and psychopaths by nature. Along with these less-than-preferable qualities, many trolls possess an organized and officially-derived method of community disruption via psychological manipulation.

It is a well-known fact that corporate and/or government interest have an official procedure for infiltrating online groups of authentic members in order to divert and disperse them using the classic method of divide and conquer. Have you recently seen individuals in social online communities deliberately and consistently fixating on highly controversial topics? Perhaps they would obsess over politics or heated sociological issues of race, gender, or religion.
Many of these agents are trained in the art of psychological manipulation. NLP, or neuro-linguistic programming is a key method used by these infiltrators to manipulate unsuspecting community members and cause them to act in disharmonious ways. Whether the establishment deems the group advantageous to their own interests, or as a threat to the establishment, these trained agents will test the environment for the best plan for their manipulation. The method is simple and usually consists of introducing disinformation into the community as well as manipulating members emotionally—usually by insulting, ridiculing, or attempting to trigger them, causing them to lose composure.
Have you ever seen anyone in alternative communities habitually making fun of alternative ideas? How about those who promote hate and/or division? Why do these individuals choose to linger in these otherwise peaceful communities, do you think? Sure they may simply be narcissists or psychopaths, and may enjoy making others feel smaller than themselves. That may simply be their choice. However, sometimes, there is more to the story. Sometimes, a clear and pre-constructed agenda might be in play.
Those who initially read and listened to the disclosures of Edward Snowden might be familiar with the methods by which the CIA, the FBI and other alphabet soup organizations infiltrate and disrupt communities which the establishment considers a threat. Back before many of us knew just what type of people ran the establishment, this trend of infiltration might not have seemed as hazardous. However, now that we know the psychopathic, pedophilic, and murderous intent of those within the Cabal/Deep State, we know that the establishment (at least in its traditional form) represents an extreme threat to human prosperity.

This is the establishment which has interests attempting to make you forget about pedophilia, that is attempting to discredit the most influential topics of disclosure, and which intends to preserve the Cabal regime instead of overthrowing it. When we see supposed members of truth communities who attempt to stop members from thinking and independently searching for the truth, it might be time to ask some serious questions.
Be aware of those who consistently insult, degrade, and/or accuse others of wrongdoing simply for thinking differently than they do. It may be that these mockers are simply new to the truth community and are unfamiliar with the practice of free thought. It may be that they simply never learned to respect the beliefs of others, or that they have narcissistic tendencies. But again, there may be the other explanation.
The Cabal views the general public as mindless puppets who cannot function without a controlling authority over them. If they see a group of people, they will automatically look for a "leader" of some kind. However, with the truth community, it seems clear that not everyone follows a leader.
The Cabal is commonly confused by this notion and considers it absurd that a human being that doesn't have billions of dollars could possibly think for themselves. Consequently, online infiltrators will typically exhibit this same confusion. This may be why some trolls will accuse free-thinkers of being brainwashed when the free-thinker expresses beliefs that oppose their own. Then again, this may simply be a method of demeaning the target and causing them to lose confidence.

Some may not realize this, but on the professional side of trolling, most of those who participate in these activities are actually students of Satanic. That's right. Many trolls are avid readers of Saul Alinky—a writer, community organizer/manipulator, Marxist, and outspoken Luciferian.
Alinsky demonstrated his affinity for Satanic concepts in multiple interviews as well as his book, Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. This book is actually considered required reader for professional trolls, according to numerous sources. Within this book, Alinsky describes the Luciferian belief that the universe is, by nature, chaotic and disharmonious, and that it is up to those with power to seize control over it and force it to conform to their will.
Along with these questionable beliefs, Alinksy alleges that life as we know it is a war and that only the powerful will prosper. The book is basically Alinsky's attempt to justify the Cabal's destruction of the planet and humanity and proposes that power should only belong to those who take it from others.
If this sounds familiar, it should. Those within the Cabal/Deep State believe the same thing, and this seems to line up perfectly with the actions of this Luciferian cult for at least the past century. Never-ending wars, genocidal tirades, and deliberate destruction of human health has been the normal practice of this group of elitists. By comparison, internet trolling by CIA and destructive government operations may not seem very extreme. However, we can still see clearly, the tireless attempts of these trolls to wage war on otherwise peaceful people online.
The goal of compromised government appears to be to stop the truth movement from gaining the final bit of ground we need for breakthrough. The anti-Trump campaign funded by George Soros and a few Saudi princes failed (though this is not to condone every decision Trump has made necessarily). The media campaign to discredit rampant pedophilia, rape and government corruption failed, and a good majority of Cabal puppets have already been arrested. It is down to the wire for the Cabal, and they know it.

It appears that the Cabal realizes that it is our agreement to see them taken off this planet that is allowing it to happen. Our agreement with the military forces to arrest and eliminate the corrupt elitists of the planet is propelling the disclosure and liberty train forward. This is the most likely reason as to why we see so many strangely negative and skeptical characters in alternative communities attempting to downplay and discredit matters of disclosure such as Pedogate, ET life, the Secret Space Program, and zero-point energy.
Trolling is a good sign that a community is doing something right. This is not to reference single trolls acting alone in attempting to aggravate others, but to reference the targeted, official-sanctioned trolling which is designed to slow the process of disclosure and planetary liberation.
The presence of these infiltrators can be a clear sign that things are about to shift in a very significant way. It also demonstrates the fact that the Cabal knows our power as the awakened people of the world to bring this shift into being. Each of us holds the power to shape the future as we choose, and as we use this power in freedom and respect for all those around us, we help co-create the greatest experience possible.

One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction. It’s time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents.
Over the last several weeks, I worked with NBC News to publish a series of articles about “dirty trick” tactics used by GCHQ’s previously secret unit, JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group). These were based on four classified GCHQ documents presented to the NSA and the other three partners in the English-speaking “Five Eyes” alliance. Today, we at the Intercept are publishing another new JTRIG document, in full, entitled “The Art of Deception: Training for Online Covert Operations.”
By publishing these stories one by one, our NBC reporting highlighted some of the key, discrete revelations: the monitoring of YouTube and Blogger, the targeting of Anonymous with the very same DDoS attacks they accuse “hacktivists” of using, the use of “honey traps” (luring people into compromising situations using sex) and destructive viruses. But, here, I want to focus and elaborate on the overarching point revealed by all of these documents: namely, that these agencies are attempting to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse, and in doing so, are compromising the integrity of the internet itself.

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. Here is one illustrative list of tactics from the latest GCHQ document we’re publishing today:
Other tactics aimed at individuals are listed here, under the revealing title “discredit a target”:
Then there are the tactics used to destroy companies the agency targets:
GCHQ describes the purpose of JTRIG in starkly clear terms: “using online techniques to make something happen in the real or cyber world,” including “information ops (influence or disruption).”
Critically, the “targets” for this deceit and reputation-destruction extend far beyond the customary roster of normal spycraft: hostile nations and their leaders, military agencies, and intelligence services. In fact, the discussion of many of these techniques occurs in the context of using them in lieu of “traditional law enforcement” against people suspected (but not charged or convicted) of ordinary crimes or, more broadly still, “hacktivism”, meaning those who use online protest activity for political ends.

The title page of one of these documents reflects the agency’s own awareness that it is “pushing the boundaries” by using “cyber offensive” techniques against people who have nothing to do with terrorism or national security threats, and indeed, centrally involves law enforcement agents who investigate ordinary crimes:
No matter your views on Anonymous, “hacktivists” or garden-variety criminals, it is not difficult to see how dangerous it is to have secret government agencies being able to target any individuals they want – who have never been charged with, let alone convicted of, any crimes – with these sorts of online, deception-based tactics of reputation destruction and disruption. There is a strong argument to make, as Jay Leiderman demonstrated in the Guardian in the context of the Paypal 14 hacktivist persecution, that the “denial of service” tactics used by hacktivists result in (at most) trivial damage (far less than the cyber-warfare tactics favored by the US and UK) and are far more akin to the type of political protest protected by the First Amendment.
The broader point is that, far beyond hacktivists, these surveillance agencies have vested themselves with the power to deliberately ruin people’s reputations and disrupt their online political activity even though they’ve been charged with no crimes, and even though their actions have no conceivable connection to terrorism or even national security threats. As Anonymous expert Gabriella Coleman of McGill University told me, “targeting Anonymous and hacktivists amounts to targeting citizens for expressing their political beliefs, resulting in the stifling of legitimate dissent.” Pointing to this study she published, Professor Coleman vehemently contested the assertion that “there is anything terrorist/violent in their actions.”
Government plans to monitor and influence internet communications, and covertly infiltrate online communities in order to sow dissension and disseminate false information, have long been the source of speculation. Harvard Law Professor Cass Sunstein, a close Obama adviser and the White House’s former head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, wrote a controversial paper in 2008 proposing that the US government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-”independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups and websites, as well as other activist groups.

Sunstein also proposed sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups” which spread what he views as false and damaging “conspiracy theories” about the government. Ironically, the very same Sunstein was recently named by Obama to serve as a member of the NSA review panel created by the White House, one that – while disputing key NSA claims – proceeded to propose many cosmetic reforms to the agency’s powers (most of which were ignored by the President who appointed them).
But these GCHQ documents are the first to prove that a major western government is using some of the most controversial techniques to disseminate deception online and harm the reputations of targets. Under the tactics they use, the state is deliberately spreading lies on the internet about whichever individuals it targets, including the use of what GCHQ itself calls “false flag operations” and emails to people’s families and friends. Who would possibly trust a government to exercise these powers at all, let alone do so in secret, with virtually no oversight, and outside of any cognizable legal framework?
Then there is the use of psychology and other social sciences to not only understand, but shape and control, how online activism and discourse unfolds. Today’s newly published document touts the work of GCHQ’s “Human Science Operations Cell,” devoted to “online human intelligence” and “strategic influence and disruption”:
Under the title “Online Covert Action”, the document details a variety of means to engage in “influence and info ops” as well as “disruption and computer net attack,” while dissecting how human beings can be manipulated using “leaders,” “trust,” “obedience” and “compliance”:
The documents lay out theories of how humans interact with one another, particularly online, and then attempt to identify ways to influence the outcomes – or “game” it:
