Revealed: US spy operation that manipulates social media

Howdy hey all,

As if things were not bad enough when it comes to people being afraid of each other and in fear of actually meeting on line, we have this huge waste of taxpayers money to create lies and dis-information in these "social media" sites.

There goes the neighborhood.

We can be sure that these cons are at work here on the DP also. May be the reason for the increase in TROLLS lately. Totally a waste of energy and the American people's hard earned tax dollars. We must ask how can this exist in a country that spends more money on the war machine than it does on it's own people? How can this be if we see children starving and homeless veterans in the streets? Do they have the vast amounts of tax dollars to throw away on this kind of out right blatant lies and fraudulent presentations of fakes here or there to disrupt the flow of harmony and good energy with their tripe from hell?

Sure glad this kind of govt waste and bloated budgets to declare war on the American people will be cut short post haste when Ron Paul is elected President.

What a ugly horrible wasteful evil sin this is.

Much of the criticism of

Much of the criticism of social media are about its exclusiveness as most sites do not allow the transfer of information from one to another, disparity of information available, issues with trustworthiness and reliability of information presented, concentration, ownership of media content, and the meaning of interactions created by social media. Thanks.

Pennsylvania Head of HomeLand Security went into hiding 2 wks

http://www.pennlive.com/editorials/index.ssf/2010/11/too_man... then came back and quit. Gov. Ed Rendall caught paying Isreali spy firm $150,000/year to spy on teaparties, anti war and other peacful groups. DONT let it create a chilling effect. This only shows how scard and paranoid the criminals are. The ants can defeat a few grasshoppers! Take courage patiots, and move on!

We will see...

...more and more of the rats jumping ship as we get closer to the crash/false flag/war escalation any day now.

Watch Europe and the bank runs.

Soon...they will get it here too and that...is what the babylonians fear the most so to take the blame off them, they might give us a horrendous false flag to distract and divert the peoples attention away from who the real criminals are and what they have done to America.

And this is why we shouldn't

And this is why we shouldn't have a standing army (CIA, DIA, NSA, etc); idle hands are the Devil's playthings.

Congressmen Seek To Lift Propaganda Ban

Propaganda that was supposed to target foreigners could now be aimed at Americans, reversing a longstanding policy.

The law would allow "U.S. propaganda intended to influence foreign audiences to be used on the domestic population."

The new law would give sweeping powers to the State Department and Pentagon to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public. “It removes the protection for Americans,” says a Pentagon official who is concerned about the law. “It removes oversight from the people who want to put out this information. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false.”

According to “senior public affairs” officers within the Department of Defense want to “get rid” of Smith-Mundt and other restrictions because it prevents information activities designed to prop up unpopular policies—like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Pentagon spends some $4 billion a year to sway public opinion already, and it was recently revealed by USA Today the DoD spent $202 million on information operations in Iraq and Afghanistan last year.

NOTE: (You know, I don’t think I could find 1 person in America that would say “4 billion for propaganda to be used against us?…YES, I’m for that!) Oh what the hell, just keep piling more debt on to the backs of the unborn. It’s about us. It’s about today. It’s about being selfish and not giving a rats ass about our children and future generations. Too bad the propaganda won’t be honest like I am being. They will wrap the 4 billion in the American flag and say we are doing it to keep us safe and to spread freedom. You gotta give our leaders credit, they have setup a system of theft and corruption that warlords, drug cartels, and the mafia could only dream of!

Yes...

...this propaganda WAR to do harm against the innocent American people has been ongoing for many years. The people are waking up to the dis/mis-information on public airwaves and the reputed news sources, but this sneak attack using pure BS and disillusionment as another weapon of mass distraction has hit the limits of coo-cooville about to become nazi-germany 2.0.
