[Kp note: want to skip to my summary? Here it is: “Overall, I cannot put any “faith” in this report. To me, it is a flash in someone else’s pan. Not mine.”]
This thing has been flying around the internet tubes recently, and posted by several people. I am not even going to post the document. Here’s a link to download the pdf. The image above is from the top of page 1 of that document.
Well, this one has had a circuitous journey, at least as it “popped” into my awareness. Here’s how it went:
Alright, I’m not doing an advanced analysis or anything like that. But take a look at the BSG logo in the report (image at top). Now, take a look at the current BSG logo:
Quite a difference. Now look at prior logos:
So the 2012 logo is the one that’s used in this report. A 2012 logo is used in a “supposedly from 2016” BSG report (for the Clinton Foundation, no less) (note: the report pdf metadata says it was created on 10-18-16 (open the pdf, click File, Properties, and you’ll see the date)).
Doubt 1: Why would anyone use a 2012 logo in a 2016 report? Especially if it is from a highly professional company with high end clientele (link to clientele), and surely they must prepare numerous professional reports each year. Makes no sense to me.
Doubt 2: The address shown on the report is 1000 Potomac Street, Washington, D.C. 20007. However, BSG’s website has the address as, “1901 Pennsylvania Ave NW Suite 1000 Washington, DC 20006”. There is one FB page that does have that “1000 Potomac Street” address, but there is no website listed. The (apparently) official BSG FB page, has the website listed.
Doubt 3: The report itself seems to read very pro-Trump. One header even states, “Trump Voters are Virtually Unstoppable”.
Doubt 4: So where did it really come from anyway? Being posted at BeforeItsNews tells you nothing. Anyone who has an account with BeforeItsNews could have posted it. How can you tell it’s from “Anonymous”?
