President Trump’s Enemies and Covert Influence

Are the Socialist Democrats using Covert Action and Covert Influence operations as a political and media influence tool leading up to the 2020 election? It’s certainly something to consider as a tactic being deployed by President Trump’s enemies against the Trump campaign as we move forward into the election season.

As a former Spook who has had a little experience I think I’m fairly knowledgeable about Covert Action and Covert Influence Operations. They can be a very effective tool to change a political narrative from one of policy discussions into one of personal attacks and disparagement, and completely eclipse the message being delivered.

Nothing that I’m sharing is of a classified nature, it’s all well known in intelligence circles as something that can be used as an effective tactic to change or influence what goes on in targeted countries, particularly in the realm of a target country’s internal politics.

One of the tactics of Covert Influence is to create and direct actions that can influence the public perceptions of a targeted political movement. If one can impugn reputations by creating a perception, then they can perhaps successfully create stronger opposition to a particular political party, alliance, or movement.

If you can paint Republicans and President Trump as “racists” then maybe you can more easily defeat them at the polls. Regardless of whether there’s any evidence or not, “perception is often reality”.

As an example – Planting people into political events or rallies to create disturbances and disruptions, or to create a particular narrative and perception is a common tactic. Especially using the news media to provide coverage and to add emphasis to the message (usually negative) that you are trying to project.

Political events are well covered by the news media who are often times looking for potentially controversial incidents that they can highlight on their evening news broadcast. How much coverage could be generated by someone putting on a red hat or wearing a large campaign button on their chest and then positioning themselves in front of a TV camera while spouting off racially, sexist, or other very offensive comments?

You can bet your bottom dollar that on the evening news that individual will be portrayed as typical of those attending the event, even though the overwhelming vast majority of attendees would roundly reject that kind of thinking. My bet is that it has happened on more than one occasion in the past, and is ongoing.

My suggestion for anyone attending a Trump rally is to be mindful of this. Don’t allow yourself to be lured into chants and demonstrations that might initially seem innocent but in fact do have negative undertones. People could easily have been planted into the crowd to initiate that very thing in order to get media exposure and discredit the entire event, the attendees, and the candidate and their political party.

(An exception in my humble opinion would be the chants of “lock her up”. Those continue to be perfectly acceptable as far as I’m concerned, considering that Hillary Clinton is the most dishonest, corrupt, and despicable politician in American history to ever run for the highest office in the land.)

If you’re in attendance and you observe anyone being filmed while making racist or other negative comments you need to call them out on it immediately! Discredit THEM and get yourself on the TV cameras doing so. Don’t allow them to be used by the media as an example for the entire group. Make sure the news media and everyone else understands that individuals who act that way are not indicative of your group or your movement.

It’s also important for the candidates or speakers at the events to insure that they take steps to stop any outbursts that could be used to reflect negatively on them and their message. Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the moment of enthusiasm, but President Trump’s opponents are looking for anything they can use against him. Don’t give them the ammunition. President Trump was right not to acknowledge the recent “send her back” chanting during his speech in North Carolina, but he should have quickly denounced it at the time it happened.

Even when one is using social media it’s important to be careful in responding to other comments that might be intended to elicit a response from you that could be twisted and distorted. Be clear and firm in what you’re saying. Offering your opinion is perfectly fine, just be mindful that there are people out there being paid to search for anything they can find which can be distorted or taken out of context and used to discredit you or your movement.

It’s a sad state of affairs that our political discourse has devolved into our being concerned about these kinds of tactics being used. But our Socialist Democrat opponents are certainly knowledgeable about these tactics, and very capable of using them. They are desperate to stop the Trump movement, and will resort to anything to discredit it and stop his re-election.

Let’s not make their job any easier.

The Truth Behind the Soviet-Era Supply Chain Crisis

The Truth Behind the Soviet-Era Supply Chain Crisis

The latest bottleneck in the supply chain is the hundreds of container ships waiting to be unloaded in West Coast ports like Los Angeles and San Diego. The mainstream media tell us the cause is a shortage of truck drivers. Now we find out that there ARE enough drivers (for the Ports, at least). The real cause is the State of California imposing an…

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

As if the stench wasn’t enough, until this fake Pfizer approval, pushed through with the complicity of a fake president, elected by fake votes, and pushed by the fake media, until today the fastest approval for a vaccine ever took five years – which was for Ebola, that kills ~50% of its victims. By contrast, we have around just six months of safety data for the Covid shot until approval, and the survival rate is 99.997 if you are under 21 and not far below that even up to age 70…

America’s Decline is a Choice

America’s Decline is a Choice

Many in America think that America needs to be brought down to size. Barack Obama once said, “My legacy will be an America brought down to the level of the rest of the world,” and though Obama was not able to realize this ambition, the Biden Administration is moving full speed ahead with plans to weaken the United States militarily and economically, destroying the wealth of the American people in the process…

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

Marching alongside residents like John Tabacco, NYC Conservative Activist and host of the Newsmax show “Wiseguys” were equally incensed New Yorkers like Rev Kevin McCall, a BLM activist. Where MAGA rally-goers generally remain lawful and peaceful, unlike what mainstream media likes to portray, BLM protesters have no such parameters. McCall “made it clear to the crowd that sometimes civil disobedience is the only way to get the government to listen.”

19 Biden Policies Designed to Destroy the Middle-Class

The dark forces behind the scenes working to reshape the U.S. are not stupid. It’s clear they’re working to destabilize society, with the long-term objective being to get them the power to transform America! The enemy of the Biden Cabal are clearly those terrible middle-class deplorables who cling to their guns and Bibles. It’s all those creepy people who go to work every day, pay their taxes, obey the law…

School Transfers Gender-Fluid Boy to Another School to Rape Again

School Transfers Gender-Fluid Boy to Another School to Rape Again

The latest mutation is “gender fluid” people – you can be a man one day, a woman the next day, then back to a man, and then whatever suits you. The predictable result? Rapists can now claim to be female whenever it helps them to rape. This rapist wore a skirt, entered the girl’s restroom, then raped a girl. Twice. Enabled and abetted by the school authorities, who knowingly transferred him to another school where he promptly committed the same crime all over again…

Biden Blunders Make Trump Tweets Sound Like Music

Biden Blunders Make Trump Tweets Sound Like Music

Politically biased private communication monopolies have canceled social media accounts of a duly elected sitting president, along with blocking scandalous information regarding foreign influence-peddling by his opponent just prior to the 2020 election. First Amendment rights are being routinely abridged through an ever-creeping ideologically…

Vaccination Alone Will Not End This Pandemic

Vaccination Alone Will Not End This Pandemic

We can see that as the months rolled on over the summer and the Delta variant shaded in the CDC variant report, the virus has found a way to attack the most vulnerable citizens who so badly needed protection from the vaccines. Since so many unvaccinated have natural immunity from prior infection, we can expect a greater proportion of those with severe illness to be among the vaccinated…
