Pro-Rittenhouse tweets came largely from Russia, China and the EU: ex-FBI official

Mod: So Rittenhouse is getting the same kind of support from certain foreign actors that Trump got? Of course.

Pro-Rittenhouse tweets came largely from Russia, China and the EU: ex-FBI official (Raw Story link): Former FBI official Frank Figliuzzi tweeted about an analysis of the tweets from the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse came largely from outside of the United States.

Figliuzzi said that the researchers took a sample of 32,315 pro-Rittenhouse hashtag tweets on Nov 19-20. The data showed 29,609 tweets came from Twitter accounts that disabled geolocation. "Of those, 17,701 were listed as "foreign", but a deep scrub revealed most of those were in Russia, China, and the EU," he said.

noted that this is more of the "divide and conquer" approach that Americans saw around the Black Lives Matter movement to pit different races against each other.

"Throughout the campaign, Russian operatives created hundreds of fake personas on social media platforms and then posted thousands of advertisements and messages that sought to promote racial divisions in the United States," wrote William J. Aceves from the California Western School of Law

In his 2019 article Virtual Hatred: How Russia Tried to Start a Race War in the United States, Aceves explained that the fake accounts were created by Russian operatives. "But their effects were real." They sought to manipulate Americans to such a degree that they would attempt to bring down U.S. democracy. 


  1. Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes resign from Fox News, protesting 'irresponsible' voices like Tucker Carlson

  2. The GRU and the NRA are the same animal; widespread gun violence is intenional with the aim of crumbling our country. Everything the GQP does is authorized by the Kremlin.

    1. Trump asked for the Russian government to interfere in the US elections in 2015, and they have never stopped. The GOP is grateful for their assistance.

    2. The GOP pays the Russians well for that assistance. Vlad ain't doing this for nothing!

      And who knows... it's probably taxpayer money.

  3. GOP Donors Back Manchin and Sinema as They Reshape Biden's Agenda
    What in the hell happened> Since when have communist been able to buy off 2 senators?
    That is done all the time in the Republican Party/Communist Party.

    Cash has also poured in for Manchin and Sinema from political action committees and donors linked to the finance and pharmaceutical industries, which opposed proposals initially included in the domestic policy bill that the lawmakers helped scale back, including changes to Medicare and the tax-rate increases.
    This year, Manchin and Sinema have received donations from major Republican donors who had never before given to them, including James A. Haslam III, who owns the Cleveland Browns football team, and Dallas real estate developer Harlan Crow, who is close to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

    1. You keep using the word "communist" but still haven't a clue about what it means.

      The modern GQP is fascist or totalitarian, not communist. The very last thing the GQP and it's wealthy property-owning donors want is public ownership of property and the means of production. They want to own it all.

  4. I was hoping they were all republicans on respirators?

    These Fools Thought a COVID Party Sounded Fun. Now They Are on Respirators.
    The trend has taken hold in northern Italy, where people who don’t want to get vaccinated are trying to get COVID to acquire a Green Pass to work, go inside bars and restaurants, and ride public transportation. In Italy, proof of recovery is sufficient to get the coveted pass for six months.
    “It was a serious mistake,” he told the paper, adding that he feels sure he only had pneumonia and that the doctors told him it was COVID to make him change his mind. “It’s only propaganda.”


  5. Citizens United was a cover for Communist Party influences.
    Elon Musk and Lauren Boebert engage on Twitter over Biden's plan to expand the IRS,

    Under the proposal, the IRS would hire nearly 87,000 new workers over the next decade in an effort to close the "tax gap" by collecting unpaid taxes owed by large corporations, partnerships, and wealthy individuals, Politico reported.

    Boebert compared the proposed increase in IRS workforce to Tesla and Apple, which employ 70,000 and 154,000 individuals, respectively.


  6. Germany debates compulsory vaccination as fourth COVID wave rages?

    "We've reached a point at which we must clearly say that we need de facto compulsory vaccination and a lockdown for the unvaccinated," Tilman Kuban, head of the youth wing of Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU), wrote in Die Welt newspaper.

    Germany's seven-day coronavirus incidence rate rose to the highest level since the pandemic began for the 14th consecutive day on Sunday, reaching 372.7 nationwide.

    In some regions, it has surpassed 1,000 with some hospitals already reporting full intensive care units. The record in the third wave of the pandemic last December was 197.6.

  7. Go put your shirt on you flabby old man.

  8. Only Democrats are prone to mind manipulation backed by the FBI; stop blaming Russia.

    1. Sure, comrade. Say hi to Vlad for me.

    2. Trumpers are far more loyal to Russia than they are America.

  9. It is sad how many do not recognize the United States is under attack. We read it every day on social media and no one responds in kind.

  10. Michael Cohen: Steve Bannon is a racist 'maniac' who thinks Trump is an 'idiot'

    He is right about the Trump thing.

    1. He may "think" that Dimwit Donnie has a couple loose screws with a few missing, but, I know for a fact, that Stupid Stephen is not playing with a full deck, either. Going through your life, hating others, causes premature aging, as indicated by his appearance.

    2. Kyle is a wanted for murder, his friends and family who help him kill 2 and wound 1 will not rest easy for very long. Remember the FL clown who shot and kill a teenager has lived in terror and had a terrible life so far, live a lie and them maybe die a liar? Enjoy whatever you got out of kill people, no joy is coming.

  11. Here is the real problem in the USA, Republicans Now Want Biden to Apologize to Kyle Rittenhouse. See the divide in the nation working at full capacity. Must be time for an old fashion FOX HUNT.

  12. A real diplomat is one who can cut his neighbor’s throat without having his neighbor notice it, Trygve Lie, former secretary-general of the United Nations, once allegedly said.

    The North Korean government seems to have understood the assignment.

    Hackers with suspected links to the Pyongyang dictatorship have been going after Chinese security researchers in an apparent attempt to steal their hacking techniques and use them as their own, according to CrowdStrike research shared exclusively with The Daily Beast.

  13. Communist Russian & China play tough but their country is under siege from COVID deaths.
    Russia's coronavirus deaths still hover near all-time highs.
    In total, Russia’s coronavirus task force has reported over 9.3 million confirmed infections and 265,336 COVID-19 deaths, by far the highest death toll in Europe.

    Some experts believe the true figure is even higher. Reports by Russia’s statistical service, Rosstat, that tally coronavirus-linked deaths retroactively reveal much higher mortality. They say about 462,000 people with COVID-19 died between April 2020 and September of this year.

  14. Video included.

    The Communist Chinese might want to pause and take a long breath, what happens after they launch the first strike will surely end in total destruction of Communist China.

    Those launch points and other major military locations will receive the first and strikes in Communist China, once again Communist China will fall back to nothing more than a fiefdom rule.

  15. “Because we right now have a substantial chunk of our country that has real doubts about the integrity of the election,” he said, attacking Democrats and the media for refusing to acknowledge those doubts — which largely only exist because he and other Republicans have stoked them.

    Trump and his allies have continued to spread disinformation about fraud more than a year after the 2020 vote. Dozens of audits, legal challenges and recounts in multiple states have yielded no evidence of widespread voter fraud.

  16. If this isn't justice in America, under republican blind fools.
    Former Baltimore County Officer Sentenced To Home Detention For Rape Of 22-Year-Old Woman.

    A Former Baltimore County police officer was sentenced Friday to house arrest for the 2017 rape of a 22-year-old woman, authorities said.

    Officer Anthony Westerman, 27, was convicted in August of two counts of second-degree rape, one count of a third-degree sexual offense, one count of fourth-degree sexual offense and one count of second-degree assault, according to a search of online court records.


  17. Why people with mental illness are at higher risk of COVID.
    If an individual had a history of a mental disorder, they were more likely to get infected," says study author Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. "And if they got infected, then they were more likely to have negative outcomes, such as hospitalization and death."

  18. Choose a side, China tells Taiwan firms as it punishes conglomerate.
    Taiwan's government has yet to comment. Taiwan says it is already an independent country called the Republic of China, its formal name, and that Beijing has no right to speak for it or pressure its elected representatives.


  19. House Jan. 6 panel subpoenas Alex Jones and Roger Stone
    The House panel also wants to hear from Jones, with Thompson saying that the conspiracy theorist and talk-show host helped organize the Jan. 6 rally at the Ellipse before the insurrection. The letter from Thompson says that Jones repeatedly promoted Trump’s claims of election fraud, urged his listeners to come to Washington for the rally and marched from the Ellipse to the Capitol.
    The results of the election were confirmed by state officials and upheld by the courts. Trump’s own attorney general, William Barr, had said the Justice Department found no evidence of widespread fraud that could have overturned the results.

  20. Why Georgia is on there minds?
