A Rat-Fucking Trial Balloon?

by William Skink

Perusing my usual conspiracy haunts brings me back, one more time, to look at the Bernie Sanders Seattle disruption.

After a reactionary jab at the (mostly) angry white progressives, then a jab at the predictable Soros scapegoating, I’m exploring the rat-fucking trial balloon possibility of Cointelpro tactics being deployed against Bernie.

While the ubiquitous Soros smear seemed weak and perfunctory, this new wrinkle is more specific and technical. It builds on the BLM co-optation angle mentioned in my last post, derived the from the two agitators identification with a group called Outside Agitators 206. Not mentioned in the last post is the odd “former support” by the activist Marissa Jenae Johnson of Sarah Palin. Johnson also still refers to herself as a “radical Christian”.

At issue is the provenance of an IP address. My understanding of this is terrible, so I’ll leave it to the more technically minded to grapple with the implications:

But what specifically does Outside Agitators 206 stand for? Well, here is a public statement that doesn’t appear to hold the same goals as the larger #BLM movement. This is the relevant text of that statement:

To succeed, the Black Lives Matter Movement must transform the politics of Black America. By definition, that means declaring war on the Democratic Party, and forcing Black politicians and activists to choose between the Party and the people’s struggle.

As usual, the Democrats will try to make Black people more angry at the terminally racist Republican Party than at the police and local administration of their (typically) Democrat-run city. Hillary Clinton is already making noises of empathy with Blacks suffering under the urban police state. However, the Black Lives Matter movement has no institutional stake in the victory of either party, but is, in fact, locked in mortal political struggle with other Black people in the Democratic Party. These Black Democrats will insist on a truce, a cessation of agitation against national or local Democrats, until after the election.

In a recent interview, at about the 29 minute mark, Johnson seems to echo this sentiment by stating, “We actually need to keep pushing people to dismantle the system.” The larger question then is are these the genuine sentiments of quasi-anarchists or the underhanded machinations of agent provocateurs? Actually, it could be a combination of both: genuinely committed activists being manipulated by operatives with a vastly different agenda. The answer may lie in the quest that Deep Throat gave to Bob Woodward in All the President’s Men: follow the money. Are there any powerful interests that stand to lose billions during a Sanders administration connected with Outside Agitators 206? I’d like to thank alwyn from Rigorous Intuition (and Project Willow for posting the image) for posting what friend Lassiter Jones found through a traceroute of their IP address and a check of the ownership on cqcounter.com which revealed it was owned by Merck and Co.

There is some back and forth on what the date Merck and Co. relinquished the IP address means (April 22nd, 2015), made more confusing by an apparent back-dated social calendar on the website going back to February of 2015.

None of this is very conclusive, but one implication, at least to me, seems apparent: Bernie is making some deep pockets very nervous.

And that is a very good thing.

    None of the tactics to disqualify Bernie can succeed without major MSM collaboration.

    Bernie has been granted unusually generous media coverage as a so-called “socialist-progressive” candidate for President and titular leader/face/voice of an anti-establishment social/cultural movement. Why is this all being accommodated by the MSM?

    Bernie’s message is popular, it resonates. His unflinching commitment to a single-payer health system cuts deeper into bipartisan neoliberal injustice than almost all other “progressive” issues combined — except maybe his talk of cutting military spending, which I think is pure campaign rhetoric. His votes don’t match the quotes on that one.

    If Bernie and his staff understand how digital technology shapes our environment I believe he has a real chance to transcend TPTB, which seems mired in outdated practices and methods.

    After all, Jim Messina ran successful campaign operations for former Sen. Max Baucus and President Obama. A couple of smart political operatives can absolutely take Bernie a long way, possibly all the way to the general election.

    Thank you posting that article. I suspected a rat f*cking immediately and I said so. Why? Well, first of all the way these two black chicks acted. NEVER have I seen antics like that before. They took over the stage easily. They had their say. They insulted the crowd. They incited the crowd. They held Bernie hostage and even got the crowd to go along with their moment of silence. In other words, they got everything they wanted and they STILL would not allow Bernie to speak! Their actions made NO sense. And after they got all that they asked for, they didn’t know what to do! Sendera Luminosa they ain’t! They did everything they could think of to provoke an angry reaction leading to some sort of actionable film event! They were indeed hoping for some sort of embarrassing incident. AND IT DIDN’T WORK! And when it didn’t, they didn’t know what to do.
    True activists would have allowed Bernie back on the stage and shared the stage with him. Bernie surely would have had no problem with that. Their stunt backfired. They did NOT count on the civility and decency of the folks sponsoring the event! Pure and simple! They rat f*cked their entire movement in the process. And yes, now we can have that conversation about race in a civil manner. Incredible. As a result, Bernie seems stronger than ever. And hence, I worry more for his safety! Hell, even Dopey Reeburp used to travel everywhere with his ex-cop butt buddy Vogel. Vogel used to punch out detractors who got to close to Dopey. Bernie needs an ex-cop buddy!

  4. This is a fascinating story. Bernie cannot possibly win, so that his candidacy is either an ideological statement, or a tool for some other campaign. If it is merely a statement, the media would ignore it and it would pass unnoticed. He would not count in the polls, just be “others.”

    The fact that people care enough about the campaign to run covert ops to undermine it says that the campaign is a tool for another campaign. Then it is just a question of whose campaign.

    My guess at this time: Bernie is tooling for Jeb Bush and attempting to weaken Hillary. Her machine is fighting back by sending in covert ops to attack Bernie, undermine his public appearances.

    Bernie himself is either an unwitting tool or a participant. Neither speaks well of him.

      So Bernie’s “either an unwitting tool or a participant [in undercutting Hillary]”? He can be only these two things? Says who? You and only you.

      If I were to say that you are either a pedophile or a rapist, that you can be nothing but these two things, and that neither speaks well of you, am I being intellectually honest and fair? Of course not. But I don’t speak out of my ass as you do. Unlike you, I try to provide supporting evidence for my statements.
