Former FBI agent creates website that tracks Russian propaganda in real time.

Courtesy of the Business Insider:  

A website launched on Wednesday by a former FBI special agent-turned disinformation expert claims to track Russian propaganda in near-real time, as it spreads via Twitter accounts that have been linked to Russian influence operations. 

Clint Watts, who garnered national media attention after testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee about Russia's ongoing cyber and propaganda war against the West, spearheaded the project called Hamilton 68 — a hat tip to the founding father's Federalist Papers No. 68. 

"In the Federalist Papers No. 68, Alexander Hamilton wrote of protecting America’s electoral process from foreign meddling," the site reads, alluding to Russia's interference in the 2016 election. "Today, we face foreign interference of a type Hamilton could scarcely have imagined." 

Watts worked on Hamilton 68 with JM Berger, a fellow with the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism who studies extremism and propaganda on social media; Andrew Weisburd, a fellow at the Center for Cyber & Homeland Security; and Jonathon Morgan, the CEO of New Knowledge AI and head of Data for Democracy, a volunteer collective of data scientists and technologists.

You can visit the website here. I have to say that it's actually a little overwhelming to see so much data coming in from Russian trolls and bots. 

Interestingly enough some of their favorite websites include True Pundit, The Daily Caller, Zero Hedge, and of course Fox News.

I would also like to point out that if you don't want to visit the website you can also track Russian propaganda by visiting Donald Trump's Twitter account.

    "Hatreon doesn’t have any “hate speech” restrictions. Which is perhaps why it’s attracted controversial figures such as alt-right leader Richard Spencer and Andrew Anglin, founder of neo-Nazi news site The Daily Stormer."
    "The Daily Stormer is looking for new funding because it is being sued by the Southern Poverty Law Center for organizing a harassment campaign against a Jewish woman in Montana."The site is not Wilson’s first controversial move. He describes himself as an “old-school anarchist” and was called the 14th “most dangerous person in the world” by Wired. (The list includes Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and now imprisoned Sinaloa cartel kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán). Wilson’s main pursuit is fighting for the right to distribute blueprints online for 3-D-printed firearms in hopes of rendering gun control laws obsolete. He is suing the State Department for the right to do so."
    ". Another crowdfunding site modeled after Patreon is expected to launch soon. Counter Fund, founded by former Business Insider Chief Technology Officer Pax Dickinson, is raising money to offer subscription-based funding for the alt-right. Dickinson recently parted ways with yet another alt-right crowdfunding platform, WeSearchr, which helped Anglin raise more than $150,000 for a legal defense fund against the Southern Poverty Law Center."
    . “My best hope for it right now is it will piss off Germany and we can have a showdown with European internet law.”"

    Hamilton 68: Putin apparently trying to incite American Civil War #2 (not kidding)





    Share this article

    If you go on Twitter and search “#civilwar” you will be horrified, disgusted and enraged at best, alarmed at worst. This is basically a thread for Trump supporters to threaten the country with civil war if Trump goes down in some way, whether it be impeachment, charges via Mueller or what-have-you. I was thinking of sharing a few examples, but I don’t even want to put that energy onto this site. If you want to see, do the search yourself.

    But what is far worse — and I feel almost sick writing this — the hashtag is also being pushed by Russian trolls/bots.

      These folks are certainly not a well regulated militia. Some will hem and haw but most of them won't come out from behind their computer.

    Keep the Trump Leaks Coming

    Both in content and in context, the official transcripts of Donald Trump’s January phone calls with Australian Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto—which were leaked to The Washington Post and published Thursday—depict a president whose very presence in high office is destabilizing, and whose continued service constitutes a dangerous crisis.

    We learn, in intimate and excruciating detail, the ways the president’s mental limitations make basic requirements of the job (such as understanding what allied leaders are talking about) impossible for him. We see not for the first time that Trump will lie about anything, even when he knows, or should know, that foreign governments can produce evidence of his deceit.

  10. And Tillerson turns down $80 million from Congress for fighting Russian propaganda because they might get their wittle fee fees hurt and his department wants to open up a friendly dialogue with them.

    Nice to see it doesn't take $80 million to track them. Fighting the propaganda. That is an entirely other thing.

    Aww, the poor little trannies and homos are still mad they lost the 2016 presidential election. Now they have a "propaganda finding" website. Keep it up you simpletons. You lost because you suck. Americans are fed up with rainbow flags and political correctness. You have no chance at winning until your message changes. You bunch of sick wack jobs.
