Pentagon Wants To Police Social Media Fake News And Deep Fakes…(The Truth Is What We Say It Is!!)

The U.S. wants to use the military’s Pentagon arm to police fake news online; what can possibly go wrong?

According to reports, the Pentagon’s DARPA research agency has announced it will deploy online cyber forces to watch for “large-scale, automated disinformation attacks,” using specialized software to detect deep fakes of photos, videos and audio clips, Bloomberg reported.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency wants custom software that can unearth fakes hidden among more than 500,000 stories, photos, video and audio clips. If successful, the system after four years of trials may expand to detect malicious intent and prevent viral fake news from polarizing society.

U.S. officials have been working on plans to prevent outside hackers from flooding social channels with false information ahead of the 2020 election. The drive has been hindered by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s refusal to consider election-security legislation. Critics have labeled him #MoscowMitch, saying he left the U.S. vulnerable to meddling by Russia, prompting his retort of “modern-day McCarthyism,” Bloomberg wrote.

Independent journalist and Newsbud contributor Kurt Nimmo reports:

The target is not Russians per se, it’s millions of American citizens the state and its secret political police, the FBI, are attempting to prevent from participating in social media and the larger political discussion that is ostensibly democratic but is, in fact, a form of hippodroming, that is to say rigging the political process for a favored outcome by the fixers.

Meanwhile, the state and its Silicon Valley partners are picking off targets one by one, the latest victim being Daniel McAdams at the Ron Paul Institute. His account was permanently suspended for the crime of criticizing Sean Hannity.

As Nimmo expresses, the target isn’t any state actor; it’s American citizens who are sharing controversial information that combats a narrative. In other words, the U.S. military wants to police free speech and thoughts online.

Here’s a friendly reminder for the reader that the blurred line between the CIA and Pentagon exists from what was formulated during the Obama administration. Although, in the more distant past, the CIA has run clear disinformation operations on the American public during Operation Mockingbird.

Besides the CIA, other agencies in the U.S. government are allowed with impunity to run Press Packages (paid government releases) i.e. propaganda.

In fact, then U.S. President George W. Bush himself exposed what are known as “Government press packages” in the early 2000s when Ken Harman of Cox News Service questioned him on the use of government-produced pieces aired on television stations across the U.S.
