A good while back my friend Mike Bishop (who no longer blogs for various reasons) wrote a very well-informed piece called ‘cognitive infiltration’ laying out the means that various detractors and moles infiltrate political opposition outlets and seek to erode the message by any and all means possible. The term itself was created by Sociology and Law Professor Cass Sunstein as a label for subversive means to undermine and end debate from potential dissidents. It is especially effective concerning online resources for a number of reasons.
Among the many takeaways was the rather simple method of changing the narrative, engaging in rambling or pointless diatribes and attacking anyone and everyone who held a dissident, rational opinion. One of the reasons comments here are HEAVILY monitored and controlled is for the mitigation of this threat. This blog is meant primarily to be a resource for anyone and everyone in the survival and preparedness community, aimed nearly exclusively towards Conservative Christians, but anyone is welcome provided they come in objectively and don’t start undo trouble. No other explanation is needed. However recognizing that many sources wish to shut this voice and all other honest ones down, several tactics are employed over and over again, most recently with a ‘familiar’ poster to these type blogs who notoriously has posted long, rambling, pointless diatribes and has violated nearly EVERY instinct I had that he’s not exactly as he presents himself. Judge for yourself from statements such as this:
I stand by what I was trying to convey in my original comment.
If it doesn’t fit your world view that is your business.
Remember it is you who stated I was incorrect. If you do not care for me not agreeing with your criticisms nothing I can say too you really matters, as evidence in the first instance.
The difference between us originates in your comments to me personally. I was not criticizing you or anyone on this blog, I was making counter argument against the people who have written revised history, which we all are guilty of falling for.
Why it was so important for you to discount my premise out of hand regarding North’s theory of Political Polytheism and his subsequent outlier work Conspiracy in Philadelphia. I take as a measure of your character, and now you want to appear all justified because you do not like being called out for being aggressively critical.
If you do not like a fellow commenter defending himself from your out of hand criticism I suggest you look before you leap.
You wrote those words, not I, and like bullets you can not take words back.
Personally, I have no doubts now you where looking for a fight.
And I stand by my observation about you fighting in another country for the interests of Gen Eisenhower’s warning regarding the military industrial complex. You took that personally, which is your want, but you missed the entire object of my original comment, that suffering from revisionism is a terrible thing which has led us all to this point. It doesn’t matter if either of us are right on details, or who has the better viewpoint on history, that damned revised history is killing us who want to be free. I’m no less guilty of falling for it than you.
You just had to take it personally, which falls right into the revisionists trap.
I baited you on purpose because you totally missed what I was trying to convey. And your pig headedness is keeping you from rejecting the revisionist trap or seeing how you where sucked in.
This isn’t about your or mine honor or duty, our commitment you dumb ass, it is about the very crux of the intent on why revisionism’s intent to remove us from our principles, our values our faith in the Lord, because that is how they have worked to destroy us men of the west in the first place.
OK…now for relevancy’s sake, I only pointed out that his use of “sovereign governed individual” is inherently an oxymoron in a comment on my buddy Jesse James’ blog. As usual Mr ‘mtnforge’ was being insolent and in need of correction. A sovereign according to definition is habitually obeyed yet obeys no one else. This is the accepted definition in every context, but he felt the need to begin an offensive rant towards my service to this nation based upon a correction.
What where you as a piece of cannon fodder to be sacrificed for the benefit of the elites who enrich themselves on invasion of a sovereign country and have been there for 14 years?
Did you not kill sovereign people, against their will, their beliefs, in a foreign land, uninvited, at the will and whim of elites who are not subject to your or my will, (or those in that other country, their ideology not withstanding?), as sovereign men who at least at one time believed in being governed through a system of trust of elected representatives in a republican form of government, guaranteed to us by The US Constitution?
Aside from the fact it was all a lie?
The trouble with this is…while I don’t take offense to what he says…I do have an issue with those who make comments like his yet offer so little. You like to talk the talk but you’ve never walked the walk. Wonder why? I did reply to him labeling him a snowflake, because that’s what thin skinned folks are. Nothing more, nothing less. Then there’s this:
And FYI, I also took it upon myself to do my duty, for I believe as a natural born American that Oath comes automatically with the blood of liberty in my veins I was born with.
I was the direct object of actor’s within the obama regime. From literally the day of his “inauguration”, because my research and investigation, and subsequent publication of citizen journalism regarding many truths and history of those in and behind that regime, something the regime did not appreciate.
I took great risks, alone, no support, no financial backing, no allies, just myself. I had the FBi on me, the regime sent things to my home to threaten me, (who I’m happy to state I got the drop on and gave them the offer you can’t refuse), they broke into my home on multiple occasions, followed friends, hacked my computer, even set out stakeouts on me, which to convey to you the import of this, was an IP in the executive wing of the whitehouse. They had operatives working inside HughesNet North America main IT Department, hoisting servers where threatened if they hosted me. Some very serious stuff.
I wrote about those sonsofabitches and what they where doing before anyone, and I was called a nut job, a radical, I was investigated as a highly dangerous Nazi white supremacist skin head, called deranged, a nut job, and things you imply here. I was right before, I been right all along on many things, I’m right also about the deep and insidious effects of revised history and revisionism, and what it is doing to us. It is such an insidious strategy, we may never know or find what the true history was.
Take that or leave that as you will.
But honestly and sincerely, I hope you figure it out.
So I see you’ve made good friends, Mr. Cook. What we have here is open admission to implicit assault and conspiracy to commit such acts on Federal Officers during an investigation of some sort, which is a crime under 18USC sec 111. What a smart fella. Read for yourself:
You might wanna reference 18USC 245 and 372, covering conspiracy charges as well, which if you didn’t do what you implied you did above, still applies as conspiracy were such an investigation actually occurring. You might wanna consult a lawyer. What was that ‘offer they couldn’t refuse’? By statute you incurred the enhanced penalty which no Prosecutor under the sun would turn down. What, you’d troll for them and seek information in exchange for an extension on your disability scam? Either you’re a lunatic, a paid informant, or both. And anyone who knows a thing or two about a thing or two appears to agree. Both Legal folks and Law Enforcement friends I have. Either way, persona non grata.
‘Doug Cook’ AKA ‘mtnforge’ 188.8.131.52 ,you’re done.
You never know who you’re talking to online. This is not a free fire zone. So keep it civil, sane, honest, and let this be the last warning.
