My millennial friends don’t believe that Bill Clinton has sexually assaulted anyone simply because he’s still a public figure, and surely if he had done these heinous things he wouldn’t still be ‘relevant’.  This is actually their line of reasoning.

The genesis of the problem here is Republicans wouldn’t prosecute the case in the court of the public because they are all cowards who are more afraid of ‘bad press’ more than lovers of truth.  Trump is the first person with a set of testicles that will say what is needed not only to win, but simply because it’s the truth and politically relevant in order to to expose the lack of character of his opponent.

Hillary's Columbus Rally
The only rally that the Clinton campaign has had a decent sized turnout this political season – Columbus, Ohio 10/10/2016

Polls can’t measure turnout, and the idea that the Clinton camp is going to all of a sudden launch some kind of massive turnout juggernaut is laughable. Hillary has had exactly one event that has had a respectable turnout, the event in Columbus, on the campus of OSU.

All of these media talking heads who are focusing on polls, which are ALWAYS based on hypotheticals, rather than watching actual voters who are filling up stadiums OR not filling up high school gymnasiums (as is the case of Hillary) are fooling themselves.

Excitement and motivation cannot be reflected in getting 30% Republicans, 35% Democrats and 35% ‘Undecideds’ to answer questions in a survey, PERIOD, as seen in Brexit, OR Eric Cantor’s primary shellacking.

Also, the media has made Trump out to be lower than the spawn of the devil, literally!  How many people are going to answer that they are in favor of a ‘deplorable’, misogynistic, homophobic, fascist in a poll?

No one, they will keep their cards closer to their chest and tell the pollsters what they want to hear.

While there is no sign of ‘turn out’ there are signs of turn down!

Think about this for a minute, the Clinton campaign has went out of their way to call out Bernie supporters as being a bunch of high-minded idiots with no grip on reality.

Additionally, now with the Wikileaks Podesta emails being brought to the forefront, where the Clinton campaign has shown that they iced Bernie before the contest ever began, with help from the DNC staff, do you think the Bernie crowd is going to show up big on election day?

Neither do I…

Finally, how many stories have you seen where tens of thousands OR hundreds of thousands of people are switching parties to vote for Hillary as they are for Trump?

HINT: There aren’t any…

Well, other than the occasional Paul Ryan/Bush 1 tepid endorsement for her, and who can forget the ever changing Glenn Beck?

All of these signs together point to a serious loss for Hillary in November, there is NO good news for her candidacy to be seen anywhere other than politicized polls that will be found to be grossly inaccurate.

In the end Big Media will look like fools who did not see the obvious, they staked their reputation on the wife of an impeached, serial sexual predator, and lost.

S

omeone noticed that the internals of the post debate CNN poll show that they purposefully created a sampling field that bears no resemblance to the American electorate.  If you think about what went into this actual poll, and consider how CNN put it together, it’s purpose from the get-go was deception!

It had to be planned in advance, too many bizarro-world things go on at CNN for it to just be happenstance!

The guys at InfoWars write:

Almost three quarters of the respondents were not Republicans and 57% more Democrats were asked than Republicans. If the sampling was flipped, with 41% of respondents being Republican and just 26% identifying as Democrats, the outcome would almost certainly have been in Trump’s favor.

Liberals are all over the news today declaring victory yet there is only 1 poll that shows Clinton winning the debate, this cooked CNN poll.

Additionally, as a bot coder myself, it’s impossible to surmise that the other thousand polls that disagree with CNN’s dishonest poll are wrong.  Botting on that level would be nearly impossible due to the sheer amount of polls where Trump wins.

If you are so certain that you are winning, or have won, then why do you have to deceive in order to show a ‘win’?

There is a noticeable lack of confidence in Hillary, and you should read every piece of ‘news-spin’ with that in the back of your mind until election day, in the meantime get ready to vote!

Also if you haven’t seen this gem, take a look, it’s the results of Gallup doing research on the ‘trustworthiness’ of the media, and it’s at an all time low.

Most honest people, when confronted with ‘7 of 10 people think you are full of crap’ would do some serious soul searching, not the media, their response is to double down on lying!

Gallup Trust in Media Poll

Since Obama has been in office, the ‘trust in mass media’ has declined 15 points from 47% pre-Obama in 2007, to 32% on September 16, 2016.

Look at the results of the poll, notice that confidence drops in 2008, reflecting the serial dishonesty regarding coverage of Obama’s first term campaign.  From there, confidence briefly recovers and levels off until 2012 where again the media breathlessly took off the mask during the Romney campaign, another noticeable drop.  This is followed by a brief recovery, then ultimately tanking.

The public is on to the ‘news’ scam!

Katy Tur has a penchant for asking questions and when not getting an answer that fits her narrative, interrupting the person answering the question in order to ‘steer’ the comment in a direction that would be more beneficial to her reporting.

She’s basically David Gregory without a penis, and while you may think that’s a harsh assessment, here’s the video proof! (we miss you Tony Snow!)

She did this to Donald Trump today and Trump was having none of it!

If you listen closely you can hear Katy’s manufactured outrage.

OMG, the Russians have hacked the Democratic National Committee(DNC)!

Well, except no one is sure that the Russians are indeed the ones that hacked the DNC server.  The narrative put forward by the DNC is that the Russians are the party responsible for the hack.

Feral Katy Tur
Feral Katy in action!

Regardless who hacked the emails it changes nothing regarding the substance of the corruption that has been laid bare for everyone to see, THAT is the REAL story here.

I have to wonder if this is really helping relations between the two countries.

I don’t imagine that bringing allegations, that may be false, to the table is going to ‘win friends and influence people’ in Russia.  If anything it drives a wedge in US/Russian relations, but most journalists are happy to carry the narrative without thinking it through.

The DNC has money coming in from everywhere, honestly, can’t you hire a competent security firm?  If you can’t secure an email server, you sure in the hell can’t secure a whole country!

The DNC is a corporation, all of a sudden the media is concerned about the leaking of internal corporate emails.

Wonder if we will see the same level of outrage should Exxon endure the same unfortunate circumstance?

I won’t hold my breath on that one…

I’m starting to understand the feelings of the African-American community. I don’t want to comment on specifics because frankly we know very little about the shooting in Minnesota.

If you can, imagine for a minute an inner-city African American kid who has joined the Armed Forces and has a desire to serve his country honestly. One day he accidentally takes home classified information and notifies his Superior Officer upon returning it, sharing the details that caused him to make the mistake with an apology offered from his heart.

The Commanding Officer, doing HIS due diligence would then write up this young man, strip him of his clearance and pursue Non-Judicial or perhaps Judicial Punishment where he could be Court-Martialed, jailed, fined, and dishonorably discharged.

There would be no special treatment for him, he’s just a cog in the system.

Now, on the other end of the spectrum we have a white woman, the absolute definition of ‘white-privilege’ who has done FAR WORSE, even to the point of an FBI investigation, yet even after hearing all of the evidence of her guilt laid bare, she gets off scot-free due to being the most powerful woman in America.

What have evidenced this week is; there is one system for the less fortunate, and another system for the Democratic candidate, and it’s horrific.

As a citizen I’m appalled at the treatment of the poor, and the DNC has shown that they really don’t care for the average American, winning elections is more important than truth.

This is not the country that I have fought in a war to protect anymore, I fought to protect every American’s rights, not just the political elite.

Thread updated, the last bot net is now manned after I found it, but is still re-tweeting away!  Additionally, H/T to Mark Buchanan for reporting on the issue, he writes “Could the same happen in the U.S. and Europe?” Yes, and it’s happening now, but the bot nets are getting better, moving beyond poorly created now.

Andrew Kalven has found another bot-net on Twitter, post updated

Update: July 21 5:57PM

Andrew Klavan has discovered another bot net:

Andrew Klaven finds another bot-net

 


You might be wondering why I know so much about bot-nets, that would be because I’ve created them for clients, and one of the focuses of our business is web automation (read more here).

Poorly constructed bot nets are very easy to spot because they are famous for not having a profile picture or cover image on Twitter, thus defaulting to the profile ‘egg image’ on Twitter.

On Facebook most bot-nets will use the picture of a smokin’ hot girl in a compromising position, and that account will ramble on about 1 or 2 subjects, post links to products, or click-bait stories, from here to eternity.

Amanda is so popular that she hasn’t even said anything yet but she already has followers!

Another way that you can easily can spot a bot-net is by the usernames (like the examples in the image on the right), notice the random strings of numbers after the username.

The reason for this character string is so that your profile creating robot doesn’t accidentally run into an real live person with the same username, which would cause the ‘account creator bot’ to crash.

SIDEBAR: Bot nets are the reason that Twitter’s stock is going down, but the number of users is going up.  Bot nets cause ad impressions to go up but return on investment for advertisers to go down.  Click-bots are the bane of pay-per-click advertisers.

A well executed bot net can drive massive amounts of traffic to your websites, additionally, you can program your bots to spread a political message, send links to your products, etc.

If you are almost instantaneously attacked on Twitter or Facebook for something that you post, it’s most likely a bot net that is setup to reply to negative (or any) message.

Bot Nets Have a Lot of Shady Friends

Another hallmark of a bot net is looking at their friends, if you look at the following image on the left, you will notice that they are all following one another, and they have no description.  DO NOT go to any of their profiles if you are at work, they are 99% porn (don’t say that I didn’t warn you).

Porn bot-nets
These bots cater to men’s weaknesses, pornography.

This is a no-no in the bot-net community, you should never link them together!  When 1 account gets banned they all do, totally a ‘jayvee’ move. Also, this screams ‘automation’ since none of the descriptions are completed.

However, we should give this guy props for at least having a profile picture and a cover image, but they are used to get the male juices flowing so that the person will click the ad and go to the porn site where they will earn a portion of the signup fee (affiliate commission).

Very Effective When Used Correctly!

While the run-of-the-mill bot creator is usually fixed on getting paid an affiliate commission, there new creators are focusing on a higher goal, winning elections.

The following article in Bloomberg details how one man was convicted, and currently in prison, for helping to fix the results of elections, his tactics were very effective if you read the article.  With this in mind I’ve been on the lookout for bot supporters of any political persuasion.

I’ll make it a point to show you many more!

Another bot net
Come on man, you’re not even trying anymore #fail

Bot Nets Have Good Uses Too

A good bot net could be very useful for catching online criminals, online forensics, as well as busting other bot-nets, so they can be used for good, or used to break the law just like anything else…
