Fraudulent “fights” at Trump Events – Formal Instigation

We all knew it was happening, that manicuring of events to fit a narrative, the feeding of the Nightly News Cycle with the expected garbage deliverables. What I didn’t realize was just how “businesslike” it had become. These folks don’t have a single qualm about such “rigging” of events and staged production for the news cycle narrative. No morality need apply.

h/t to J. Martin in tips.

Which sends you off to the Michael Smith News site:

(No relation, but I’ve noticed folks with the name Smith tend to be reality oriented and prone to a clear understanding of things like tech and construction… not afraid of fire much either. I suspect it is that shared ancestry of working iron in fire making weapons and ploughs both…)

Where they are releasing a ‘one a day’ undercover video series. It looks like they have done one hell of a job with going undercover inside the Democrats Machine and come up with some pretty strong evidence of fraud, news coordination and manipulation, and moral corruption. Just my opinion, of course, but you decide:

Part 2 to be released in an hour or so per their top page at this moment.

    I have seen that video before. It has completely turned me off of automation of the vote counting.

    As for the instigators, Bernie told us that 6 months ago.

  2. H.R. says:

    I commented on false flag operations right around the time Trump sewed up the nomination, but with all the stuff coming out now, it looks like EVERYTHING from TPTB via the MSM has been pretty much a false flag (disinformation included as such) or just outright lies. We know that the MSM has been in the tank for decades, but I would think that there was step increase in the cooperation and duplicity that the MSM brought to party starting the in the ’70s.

  3. Larry Ledwick says:

    I think the astounding thing for me is that they don’t seem to care much if they get caught!
    Being very blatant/careless It will be interesting to see what happens to cable news viewership in the next couple months.

  4. BobN says:

    There are many example videos of how the Democrats cheat. Here is one from Project Veritos.

    I’m convinced the election will be stollen.

  5. Gail Combs says:

    I also think they will try to steal the election. That is a given. However I have seen info stating they can not vote flip more than about 5%.

    Stealing the election is going to be hard because for once they are not dealing with the Uniparty. They are dealing with a candidate that has been yelling the system is RIGGED for a year.
    They are dealing with the PROOF the system was rigged against Bernie via the DNC Wikileaks.
    They are dealing with a wide awake electorate that KNOWS the MSM lies and the DNC will try to steal the election.

    They are dealing with a VERY ANGRY bunch of hackers and there may be more moles within the DNC.
    Anonymous Warns Trump Of Democrat Election Fraud
    (ERRRrrr aren’t these people supposed to be liberals or are they Classical Liberals. Anyway it is a good read.)

    They are dealing, not with the equally corrupt RNC (wink nudge) but with angry Trump supporters who are organizing to prevent the steal.
    ROGER STONE (with Alex Jones help broadcasting the site)
    (Has video on voter fr@vd)

    Last they are dealing with private polling by Trump and a bunch of lawyers standing by in each state to jump on any case of voter fraud. (H/T to the anon author in first link.)

    Googling trump prevent voter fraud brings up lots and lots of MSM articles frothing at the mouth with “Move along folks nothing to see here” instead of the set of links I was looking for. This tells me the Globalists are really panicking because their intentions to steal the election has been outed to a very large segment of the US population.

    From my point of view they are now in a real bind.

    Americans no longer believes the MSM fantasy narrative that Hillary is ahead in the polls thanks to the alternate media and now Wikileaks. The MSM cameras NEVER showed the Trump crowds so Trump funded the equipment to buy for Rightside Broadcasting. NOW the crowds are panned and the MSM is again shown to lie.

    The Sleeping Giant has already awakened BEFORE Hillary could peacefully confiscate all the guns or drive ammo/gun manufacturers out of business with a law making them libel for ANY death caused by a gun. (In one of the Wikileak emails)

    The new revelation that the DNC/Hillary was responsible for putting people and cops at risk resulting in this:

    San Jose Rally where police funnelled trump supporters directly into La Raza thugs and did NOTHING to prevent injury.

    Cop injured at cancelled Chicago Rally because they were understaffed and not allowed riot gear.

    Now add in the hunting of cops by Black Lives Matters and even the liberal cop running the Second City Cop blog is disgusted with the corruption.

    The Armed forces is generally more conservative esp in no draft years because liberal beta males are just not interested.

    People are careful what they say on the net but you can still hear the rumblings.

    I was amazed at how fast the information about the Federal Reserve/Fractional Reserve Banking spread after the mortgage collapse. You do not expect knowledgeable discourse about the Fed in a 1800s vintage feed store in the middle of nowhere among black and white farmers. Yet that is what I heard. Trump has had over a year to spread his message of a rigged system and that message is spreading even faster.

    I do not think even a war with Russia will serve as a distraction this time and I think Putin is wise enough to hold off until AFTER the elections. North Korea, Iraq probably don’t care and their puppet master China is a complete wild card.

  6. Larry Ledwick says:

    (ERRRrrr aren’t these people supposed to be liberals or are they Classical Liberals. Anyway it is a good read.)

    I think you would describe them as anarco-libertarians, they want only the very smallest government possible (some of them want no governments) and are willing to dabble in anarchy to get it, it really is a large tent group, interested in various key issues like, free speech, free access to information, transparent government (even to the extreme of not understanding why some things are classified).

    That said yes the establishment has successfully surrounded itself with peaceful (mostly) vigilantes who are bound and determined to cut the reins and shackles of government on the people.

  7. hillbilly33 says:

    In Australia, we have had nothing but negative commentary and reports on Trump in our MSM with our taxpayer funded national broadcaster ABC the chief culprit and cheerleader. They have wall to wall Left/Green commentators and so-called journalists and have become a law unto themselves.
    Our ABC – Anything But Conservative – Always Biased Commentators – Always Biased Commentary.. Groupthink rules the day and night and woe betide anyone who would seek to deviate from the line pursued in the bubble of the alternative universe in which they seem to dwell.
    They completely either overlook or discount the main reason for Trump’s rise, which will still be there regardless of whether he succeeds in becoming President or not.. The dissatisfaction with politicians and the the political class is worldwide and will only increase if changes are not made..

    The dark forces in Australia ensured the knifing of a first-term elected Prime Minister to manipulate a crook into the position as Australia’s first female PM. We are still paying dearly for that.
    I hope .Americans don’t have the same catastrophe thrust on them..

  8. Gail Combs says:

    All Trump did was jump in front of the bandwagon. It could have been Ross Perot but the people were not ready to hear him and the Elite succeeded in threatening his family and making it stick. (Ron Paul was also threatened according to Dan Estulin.)

    In 2010 the old Rasmussen Reports (before sold to leftists) showed 1/3 democrat 1/3 republican and 1/3 Tea Party. The Elite moved swiftly to suppress these Tea Party voters that were leaving the Democrat and Republican plantations using The Blair-Rockefeller Poll to call Tea Party members ‘Racist’ They also infiltrated the movement and took it over. link

    In the UK, you had the rise of UKIP and now in other countries, as the horrors of bad political decisions hit home, you have the rise of many other non-globalist parties. This is thanks to the internet and despite the ‘Hate Speech Laws’

  9. Gail Combs says:

    Turnbull is Goldman Sachs.
    Hillary is also ‘Goldman Sachs

    Any surprise that Australian MSM hates Trump?

    Snippets from Private Hillary Speeches:
    Download file:
    Lloyd Craig Blankfein in those emails is the CEO and Chairman of Goldman Sachs. He assumed this position upon the May 2006 nomination of former CEO Henry Paulson to United States Secretary of the Treasury.

  10. hillbilly33 says:

    No surprise at all Gail. The MSM and ABC played just as large a part in leading Turnbull and his “wets” to knife elected PM Tony Abbott as they had done in the Gillard/Rudd scenario. Gillard and Turnbull were both “darlings” of the ABC, and both turned out to be complete failures. Possibly the main reason Turnbull changed his mind (or had it changed) and stayed in Parliament after he was replaced as then Leader of the Opposition, was to ensure the Global Warming Scam continued to thrive and thereby protect the huge Goldman Sachs investments.

    True Australian conservatives have been effectively disenfranchised and are very angry.

  11. Mddwave says:

    In the future, I wonder what methods, laws, etc. that could be put in place to prevent election fraud.

  12. Steve Crook says:

    > I’m convinced the election will be stollen

    I hope so, I like Stollen, though I prefer to bake my own.

    I’ll get my coat on the way out…

  15. E.M.Smith says:

    @John Silver:

    Um, I’d prefer not to have threats at anyone, even a vague Evil Overlord Class, on this site. Express all the displeasure at their actions that you like, but threats “to the person” (or in this case, to the collective of persons) just isn’t right. (Not to mention that in some jurisdictions it can get you up on charges…)

    So while I might agree with the strong displeasure at where our “leaders” have taken us, and are taking us, and despise their methods, I’d rather not see them threatened with bodily harm…

    Note that I do realize ‘terminated’ has dual meanings. You might want to clarify when you mean “terminated from office or power’…

    BTW, in the USA in particular, threats to the POTUS or POTUS-in-waiting will get you visited by the FBI and / or Secret Service and / or a visit to an unnamed tropical location prone to hurricanes… and I don’t mean Florida…

    @Steve Crook:

    What, you want stollen? Christmas fruitcake? Got a door you need to keep open? Something to prop up the car? … Getting my hat and coat now ;-)

  16. Gail Combs says:

    “…I’m convinced the election will be stollen….”

    I agree, the election is certainly filled with fruits and nuts.

    I used to make traditional fruit cake around election time, wrap it in cheese cloth saturated with brandy and then wrapped in foil. Oh and don’t forget the syringe full of brandy injected into the cake at several sites. Eat more than two slices and you were looking at a DUI.

    It would appear that for duckduckgo images you need to click through to the picture, then click ‘view file’ and then get THAT link to paste in for the image to show…

    I’ll try to find / fix your image…

    UPDATE: Got it. Just trim out the leading ‘duckduckgo’ stuff, up to the www, and turn the % 2 F into / between parts. I also made it an http instead of https, but that might not have mattered…

  18. Gail Combs says:

    Thanks EM
    I am used to google.

  19. Gail Combs says:

    grannysue pointed out another method of voter fraud. This needs to be passed on.

    They, I suspect are using a technique called harvesting votes. They get the info on a voter which is pretty easy considering twenty states had their voter rolls hacked and then send in ballots for them. I think on election day when people go to vote there are going to be a whole lot of them who are told they already voted. This means someone else voted in their place. It is going to be a huge mess and people need to know that they need to contact the Trump campaign when this happens. And, pray that our states elections offices catch the fraudulent ballots.

  20. Gail Combs says:

    On the ‘busing of voters’ method of cheating, Someone brought up Obama major pushed for Cash For Clunkers when he first came into office. What if the DNC wanted a fleet of beat up used vehicles specifically for use in voter fraud?

    All it takes is someone to collect the Cash For Clunkers cars from the car dealers, sort through them and keep the useable ones. The government is already footing the bill and no one is keeping track of the vehicles.

    Reminds me of Clean Harbours in MA. The local school had to pay megabucks to have an old parking lot removed because the old pavement was declared ‘hazardous waste’ by MA. My brother-in-law, a local newspaper reporter, followed the trucks and found all they did was dump the material in a place where fill dirt was wanted and got PAID by the contractor for the fill!

    So yeah, I could see someone warehousing fleets of cars to be used in voter fraud every couple of years. That gets rid of all the paper trail problems. All those billions in donations have to go somewhere.

    Rental cars would have to have the licence plates switched and many rental agencies have logos on the cars. This by passes that problem.

  21. E.M.Smith says:


    Per the leanings of Anonymous:

    It is rampant in the hacker community to want freedom, often to excess. Larry described it pretty well. The very LAST thing they want or like is an oppressive boot of government on them; which is exactly what Hillary is saying she will supply… So “anarcho-Libertarian” is likely the best you can label it; though with massive disagreements over just what that really means…

    There is an ethos in hacking that’s hard to explain. It’s “OK” to crack into somewhere (despite what the law might say). Perhaps I ought to digress… Despite the common usage, “hacking” is not the same as breaking into a system. It is writing quick and dirty code that works, as in “I’ll hack something together for that problem.” Now breaking in to a system is properly called “cracking”, but it is usually done with quick and dirty tools / hacks… thus the confusion… That is slowly changing as now many of the common cracks are embodied in formal attack programs, called scripts, and the folks who run them while having little clue are called “scrip kiddies” (mildly derisively and despite their age…) So back at the main point: To crack in is OK in that ethical system as long as you don’t do any damage, don’t get caught, don’t leave a lot of evidence behind, and / or “they deserve it”.

    It’s at this point things go from muddy to near opaque…

    Not leaving evidence behind is first off, critical to not getting caught. It is also a reputational thing. Both yours personally (how good are you at leaving no foot prints) and for the collective culture (not bringing down wrath on everyone by being stupid).

    Don’t get caught is also important both personally and to the group for the same reasons, plus the idea of jail time in many jurisdictions is a bit, er, problematic… Also the bad press is much higher when someone is caught.

    Finally, we have the “don’t do any damage” vs “they deserve it”. This is where it gets really sticky. In the hacker / cracker ethos, snagging a copy of a song for free, or wandering through the CEO’s Email at Evil Corp. is not doing harm, thus their very large disagreement with the recording companies and “digital rights enforcement” code… They see a badly configured email spigot that they can open as you giving permission by your configuration being bad. They see any music or video or ‘whatever’ as something that ought to be free, since taking a copy doesn’t damage the original. I know, a bit of a stretch… and not all folks feel that way, but enough. Finally, if it really IS an Evil Corp (or even an Evil Person, and especially an Evil PTB) then “they deserve it” kicks in and you get things like defacing web sites, erasing disks, outing their email archive to the public, etc. etc. That whole “Snowden” thing and the UEA “Leak” / “Hack” / whatever. Basically, you don’t get a lot of folks cracking in to places like The Red Cross and dumping their email or defacing their web pages as they are “nice” and don’t “deserve it”. As soon as a perception of Evil exists, a place or person or company becomes “fair game”. Jerks and A-Holes get hacked and cracked more than honest and just folks.

    The Final Complication: State Actors & Businesses.

    Lately, the cracking and probing culture has been invaded by a bunch of State Actors, while the Corporate Crackers business has also taken off. Phishing is sending folks a bogus email “offer” of some sort, and if you ‘click the link’, it plants malware on your box. Often backdoor access code that lets it be taken over and run remotely (‘remoted’) for further use. While at an Entertainment Company in Florida, they contracted with an outside company to “phish their employees” and for about 3 weeks were were all treated to random phishing attacks. Those who took the bait got sent off for reeducation… (I didn’t take the bait, and in fact, sent the email and a forensic on it, including the name of the originating company, to Corporate Security, who were a bit surprised but told me not to worry they were being paid to do this…) This kind of thing is called “Ethical Hacking” which in some ways is a double misnomer…

    In any case, between the State Actors (some of which are actual hackers and crackers who like making money without risk of arrest in countries that give them cover, and some of which are just script kiddies and conscripts given a government job…) and the Corporate Ethical Hackers For Cash; you have a much more mixed set of folks attacking your boxes Every Single Day… With vastly variable ethics…

    About Me:

    I’ve occasionally had “Ethical Hacking” contracts. That’s about all I’ll say on it. (First off, some required an FBI background check and work with ‘agencies’; second, it just isn’t right to talk about security gigs.) It hasn’t been a major part of my employment. Mostly I’m employed in things like Disaster Recovery and building out / closing down networks and data centers. At present, my skilz are out of date enough I’d likely be classed as a script kiddie for a month or two as I sharpened them up again. I’ve not done any ‘free lance’ hacking or systems cracking. (Well, not since college, but then it was legal… and I only found ways to get more computer time on the campus machine since I wanted to do more on the computer… the one guy in our small band who got caught got hired by the data center… Different times ;-)

    Back at Anonymous:

    So OK, who are these folks? Well the whole point is that nobody knows. In theory, I could hang out my shingle tomorrow as one ( I’d have to find a source of a quality nifty mask ;-) as they have limited membership rules. There’s a couple of folks who started it, who’s names are known; and I suspect there’s an informal enforcement (i.e. if you assert you are Anonymous while advocating for Evil Corp, I suspect you would find yourself cracked, outed, and your computer a mass of worms and viruses…) I’m sure the politics span a wide spectrum, but as long as the Ethos and Ethics match, that’s fine.

    Any more depth than that and I’ll need to make it an article ;-)
    Below is a small quote block from:

    Anonymous is a loosely associated international network of activist and hacktivist entities. A website nominally associated with the group describes it as “an Internet gathering” with “a very loose and decentralized command structure that operates on ideas rather than directives”. The group became known for a series of well-publicized publicity stunts and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on government, religious, and corporate websites.

    Anonymous originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan, representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain. Anonymous members (known as “Anons”) can be distinguished in public by the wearing of Guy Fawkes masks in the style portrayed in the graphic novel and film, V for Vendetta.

    In its early form, the concept was adopted by a decentralized online community acting anonymously in a coordinated manner, usually toward a loosely self-agreed goal, and primarily focused on entertainment, or “lulz”. Beginning with 2008’s Project Chanology—a series of protests, pranks, and hacks targeting the Church of Scientology—the Anonymous collective became increasingly associated with collaborative hacktivism on a number of issues internationally. Individuals claiming to align themselves with Anonymous undertook protests and other actions (including direct action) in retaliation against copyright-focused campaigns by motion picture and recording industry trade associations. Later targets of Anonymous hacktivism included government agencies of the U.S., Israel, Tunisia, Uganda, and others; the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant; child pornography sites; copyright protection agencies; the Westboro Baptist Church; and corporations such as PayPal, MasterCard, Visa, and Sony. Anons have publicly supported WikiLeaks and the Occupy movement. Related groups LulzSec and Operation AntiSec carried out cyberattacks on U.S. government agencies, media, video game companies, military contractors, military personnel, and police officers, resulting in the attention of law enforcement to the groups’ activities. Some actions by members of the group have been described as being anti-Zionist. It has threatened to cyber-attack Israel and engaged in the “#OpIsrael” cyber-attacks of Israeli websites on Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) in 2013.

    Dozens of people have been arrested for involvement in Anonymous cyberattacks, in countries including the U.S., UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, India and Turkey. Evaluations of the group’s actions and effectiveness vary widely. Supporters have called the group “freedom fighters” and digital Robin Hoods while critics have described them as “a cyber lynch-mob” or “cyber terrorists”. In 2012, Time called Anonymous one of the “100 most influential people” in the world.
    Broadly speaking, Anons oppose Internet censorship and control, and the majority of their actions target governments, organizations, and corporations that they accuse of censorship. Anons were early supporters of the global Occupy movement and the Arab Spring. Since 2008, a frequent subject of disagreement within Anonymous is whether members should focus on pranking and entertainment or more serious (and, in some cases, political) activism.[citation needed]
    “ We [Anonymous] just happen to be a group of people on the Internet who need—just kind of an outlet to do as we wish, that we wouldn’t be able to do in regular society. …That’s more or less the point of it. Do as you wish. … There’s a common phrase: ‘we are doing it for the lulz.’ ”
    — Trent Peacock. Search Engine: The face of Anonymous, February 7, 2008.

    Because Anonymous has no leadership, no action can be attributed to the membership as a whole. Parmy Olson and others have criticized media coverage that presents the group as well-organized or homogeneous; Olson writes, “There was no single leader pulling the levers, but a few organizational minds that sometimes pooled together to start planning a stunt.” Some members protest using legal means, while others employ illegal measures such as DDoS attacks and hacking. Membership is open to anyone who wishes to state they are a member of the collective; Carole Cadwalladr of The Observer compared the group’s decentralized structure to that of al-Qaeda, writing, “If you believe in Anonymous, and call yourself Anonymous, you are Anonymous.” Olson, who formerly described Anonymous as a “brand”, stated in 2012 that she now characterized it as a “movement” rather than a group: “anyone can be part of it. It is a crowd of people, a nebulous crowd of people, working together and doing things together for various purposes.”

    The group’s few rules include not disclosing one’s identity, not talking about the group, and not attacking media. Members commonly use the tagline “We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.” Brian Kelly writes that three of the group’s key characteristics are “(1) an unrelenting moral stance on issues and rights, regardless of direct provocation; (2) a physical presence that accompanies online hacking activity; and (3) a distinctive brand.”

    Chefio, it’s not for me to decide, it’s for the people. Voting perhaps?
    The tropics are fine for me.

  23. philjourdan says:

    @Gail – that can be done in this state, but they will leave a tell tale sign. You cannot walk in and get an absentee ballot. You can walk in a request one, but it has to be sent to your residence. So the only way they can make it happen, without the complicity of the postal service, is to change your address of record. And that will show up when you go in to vote.

    “These folks don’t have a single qualm about such “rigging” of events and staged production for the news cycle narrative. No morality need apply.”

    Each of us can probably sense on some level when we are being given a pre-packaged, manipulative version of a story. There is some neuroscience behind that but maybe another time.

    Although, I can see plainly that my own children often accept what is in the news cycle without very much discrimination.

    I have decided that I cannot rush them down the road to realization. In my own experience, you really have to see how the presstitutes behave when reporting on an event or issue that you deeply care about, or know the truth about already. This can be jarring and can open your eyes. Then afterwards you consider carefully what is set before you, as the good book says.

    The simple believes every word, But the prudent considers well his steps. Prov 14

  26. Gail Combs says:

    philjourdan says: “….@Gail – that can be done in this state, but they will leave a tell tale sign. You cannot walk in and get an absentee ballot. You can walk in a request one, but it has to be sent to your residence….”

    That is assuming that the voter registration (not absentee ballot) people are not also paid off or just plain lazy.

    In MA, when they went to the new ‘forgery proof’ drivers licences, the crooks had the brand new machines before the state drivers licence offices did!

    A CBS4 investigation has found multiple cases of dead men and women voting in Colorado months and in some cases years after their deaths, a revelation that calls into question safeguards designed to prevent such occurrences.

    “We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred,” said Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams after reviewing the CBS4 findings. “It shows there is the potential for fraud.”

    There were other reports, where, I think it was college students, were never taken off the rolls and multiple ballots showed up at the same address. The present student then filled out all the ballots.

  27. Larry Ledwick says:

    There was a study that showed college students voting both in their college towns and in the birth home address in the same election. Some even bragged about it.

  28. Gail Combs says:

    The gateway Pundit is a great site. Unfortunately it has a tendency to crash my system as does Breitbart.

  29. Aron says:

    I may be reading more into what Trump said in the debate tonight than implied, but the point when he was talking about Hillary letting in Syrian refugees and how that was like a Trojan horse for ISIS, he said, “lots of luck with that Hilary”. I got the immediate impression that he was saying it from the point of view of Hillary becoming president and so I wonder if Trump has come to the conclusion that Hillary has already been selected and that he won’t win, regardless of votes.

  30. H.R. says:

    Aron (“I may be reading more into what Trump said …”)

    Yup. It’s the New York equivalent of the South’s “Bless your heart” [unsaid: “Idiot”] polite epithet.

  31. Gail Combs says:

    “lots of luck with that” and “Bless his heart” are polite forms of swearing at idiots.

    When a Southerner says “Bless his heart” you know they hold the person in complete contempt.

    “ Yeah, lots of luck with that” (usually said with a sneer) means ‘that’ has zero chance of happening.

    It is fun reading at the TreeHouse because you will see “Bless his heart” on occasion and everyone knows the person just flipped the finger without getting vulgar.

    My mom & family was from so far south in Texas you had to go 100 miles north to hear a southern accent ;o) I used to have the ear to distinguish N vs S Carolina accents and regionalisms, Tennessee, Georgia (the most beautiful southern accent IMO), Alabama, Louisiana (easy one), and then that Texas dialect.

    I’ll accept (and appreciate) your expertise on North-East expressions and accents since you have actually lived among those “damn Yankees” and lived to tell about it ;o)

    Fair point about being near a high-value target area, Gail.

    North Dakota would probably be reasonably safe for the 600,000 who live there, but then it’s so out of the way that they might welcome a nuclear strike just to break up the monotony. I suppose it also might bring some badly needed warmth to the State if the strike is in Winter. However, I’m afraid they are doomed to disappointment.
