Learn From the Idiocy of Others

For some reason, I keep seeing people using Facebook to coordinate activism, or recruit new members. I’ve seen groups work with little codewords they think are clever, or come up with callsigns that they think will somehow keep them anonymous. No matter how many times people and groups get infiltrated successfully, the idiocy continues to abound, as people think they’ve come up with a sure-fire way to protect themselves on Facebook. None of that works, and I’m about to show you why.

Blue Lives Matter infiltrated the KKK — on Facebook — and it looks like exactly the same type of action I’ve done, taught others to do, and seen over and over in so-called “patriot groups” and leftist groups alike. It basically goes like this:

  1. Make a fake account, tailor it to the target audience, and add a few folks from the group you’re trying to get into.
  2. Keep adding people, a little at a time. Leverage the mutual friends aspect. The better you are at this, the faster you’ll develop your network in the target group. It’s not about bulk — it’s about targeting very specific people, then leveraging their friends list to get more, slowly worming your way in.
  3. Usually if you have mutual friends, your target will accept your friend request. Later, when you have 40-something mutual friends with people, they’ll start thinking YOU are the popular one, and they’ll start chasing you down.
  4. Once you’re in, you’re in. People still can’t seem to wrap their heads around the basic idea of layered security, so they figure if you have all those mutual friends, you’re in the secret group, and you’ve got the appropriate ‘bling’ on your page, that you’re down with the struggle.  Sit back and watch the information flow.

Why am I posting this? Because you need to learn from the mistakes of others. It doesn’t matter who the story is about — their tactics (or lack thereof) are what you need to look at. It’s important to note that these guys were especially stupid — but then again, I’ve seen worse.

Learn to look past WHO, to the WHAT and WHY. And for God’s sake, quit coordinating stuff on Facebook.

The Fourth Reich: Coming, or Already Here?

John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute says the Fourth Reich is already happening, and the FBI is its ‘silent terror.’ He’s right. Are you watching?

With every passing day, the United States government borrows yet another leaf from Nazi Germany’s playbook: Secret police. Secret courts. Secret government agencies. Surveillance. Censorship. Intimidation. Harassment. Torture. Brutality. Widespread corruption. Entrapment. Indoctrination. Indefinite detention.

These are not tactics used by constitutional republics, where the rule of law and the rights of the citizenry reign supreme. Rather, they are the hallmarks of authoritarian regimes, where the only law that counts comes in the form of heavy-handed, unilateral dictates from a supreme ruler who uses a secret police to control the populace.

That danger is now posed by the FBI, whose laundry list of crimes against the American people includes surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, intimidation tactics, harassment and indoctrination, governmental overreach, abuse, misconduct, trespassing, enabling criminal activity, and damaging private property, and that’s just based on what we know.

Consider the FBI’s far-reaching powers to surveil, detain, interrogate, investigate, prosecute, punish, police and generally act as a law unto themselves—much like their Nazi cousins, the Gestapo—and then try to convince yourself that the United States is still a constitutional republic.

What Do Your Facebook Likes Say About You?

This morning, you might have checked your Facebook account. According to StatisticBrain.com, over 1.7 billion people in the world have a Facebook account they log into at least monthly, so you’re certainly not alone.

While you’re logged into Facebook, you might come across a page you decide to like so that those updates show up in your news feed. Now let’s say one of your friends posted a meme you find amusing — so you like that as well. As you travel around the Facebook world, you leave a trail of likes. But did you know that trail is followed by big data companies, government agencies, and researchers? One researcher designed a way to know things about you, information that not even your spouse may know about you.
