CTH: He still hasn’t identified the source code, the proverbial ghost in the machine, buried deep in the algorithmic code; however, Twitter owner Elon Musk has finally identified the agency within the U.S. government who spearheaded the creation. The “Global Engagement Center” (GEC) of the State Dept.
The GEC mission is described as, “To direct, lead, synchronize, integrate, and coordinate U.S. Federal Government efforts to recognize, understand, expose, and counter foreign state and non-state propaganda and disinformation efforts aimed at undermining or influencing the policies, security, or stability of the United States, its allies, and partner nations,” (link). However, when you overlay the expanded Dept of State mission that Obama delivered, transferring GEC intent to domestic operations, suddenly the background of Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop makes sense.

Readers here are so far ahead of the curve on this story, it’s kind of cool, funny, and yet frustrating at the same time. Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop is all a wild conspiracy theory born from the oddly wired brain of some dude in the corner of the internet; until suddenly it’s not.
Factually, it has been staring at everyone since the operation began in 2011, yet no one was willing to believe it. Apparently, Elon Musk is starting to realize what is inside the communication platform he purchased. MORE
Democrat voters are just fine with this attack on the God given rights of others. Each and every one of them think the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately, by the grace of god.
One would think that people who supported Donald Trump and MAGA are of with Thomas Jefferson on this would be furious and ready to open federal investigations and be gathering rope while the prosecutions were proceeding.
This is explains the absolute steadfast and unyielding support for McCarthy in the Speakership roll. It explains the shutdown of practically every reader comments feature on newspaper’s websites across the country. It explains a hell of a lot more, that is just a start.
Trust me on this, it absolutely demands the establishment Republicans involvement. The Bush element cannot be understated, that is the conduit they have maintained into the alphabet Agencies.
Liberal acquaintance: Where’d ya get that information, on the internet?(sarc)
L.A.: I suppose you believe everything on the internet don’t you?
Me: Well, CNN is on the internet……..Jus sayin.
Snarky L.A.: THAT’S DIFFERENT!
My woke sister-in-law got bent out of shape because Elon bought Twitter because free speech is dangerous.
Interesting article, but I think it underestimated Tic Toc’s information gathering (spying) role.
Did you know that in 2012, the Congress made it Legal for the US Government to use Propaganda on US Citizens (NDAA Amended), negating the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 which explicitly forbade the USG from psyops aimed at influencing US public opinion?
So they already have a disinformation department!?
I trust my government to do what the unelected, unaccountable Agencies want regardless of Constitutionality, Laws or what is best for the Nation, with an unlimited offline Budget.
It’s not always the the elected officials (Congress) who infringes upon our liberties. The largest effort is made by strategically placed Bureaucratic operatives (rogue political element) in Federal Agencies who initiate rules, regulations and restrictions of the Rights of Americans.
Most of these political bureaucrat’s positions are protected by United States Civil Service Commission, United States Merit Systems Protection Board.
The Merit Protection Board The Board is composed of 3 politically appointed members, nominated by the President of the United States, with the advice and consent of the Senate, for a term of seven years. By statute 5 U.S.C. §§ 1201, “not more than 2 […] shall be adherents of the same political party”.
Many critics state, the MSPB now makes it nearly impossible to fire poor performers or problematic employees, even when they have committed egregious violations that would result in immediate termination in the private sector. The Politically placed Bureaucrats have become virtually untouchable career federal employees even when violating Constitutional Rights.
Attacks upon the Bill of Rights occur more frequently by unelected politically appointed Bureaucrats in most Federal Agencies:
First Amendment [Religion, Speech, Press, Assembly, Petition
Second Amendment [Right to Bear Arms
Fourth Amendment [Search and Seizure
Fifth Amendment [Grand Jury, Double Jeopardy, Self-Incrimination, Due Process
Sixth Amendment [Criminal Prosecutions – Jury Trial, Right to Confront and to Counsel
Eighth Amendment [Excess Bail or Fines, Cruel and Unusual Punishment
Tenth Amendment [Rights Reserved to States or People
