Greenwald Courting Conspiracy Theory Market with New “Leak” and a Cass Sunstein Mention

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

by Scott Creighton

Glenn Greenwald’s new “truth telling” site is up and running and it appears he’s looking to broaden his base by courting the conspiracy theory market.

Aaaaaand as it just so happens, he has a Snowden “leak” readily available to use for just such an occasion. What a coincidence. How convenient for Mr. Greenwald and his new business venture that all of a sudden a new “leak” surfaces which will garner him and his new partners much needed credibility in a growing market.


Look around the alternative and fringe internet sites and you will find a new article out from Glenn Greenwald and his new site The Intercept. This is the online “news” collaboration between Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill and Laura Poitras which was bought and paid for by Glenn’s new sugar daddy, globalist billionaire Pierre Omidyar.

The article, titled How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations, deals with exposing part of the institutional operations centered around what I call “influence peddlers”. These are contractors hired by either the federal government, defense department or big business to infiltrate, disrupt, distract and ultimately destroy online dissident groups or those individuals who effectively lead them.

The basis of the new article by Mr. Greenwald is yet another Power Point slide presentation “leaked” by Mr. Snowden or should I say, given by someone to Mr. Greenwald that HE may leak it when it best suited his needs.

Like the “groundbreaking” leak involving the NSA domestic spying scandal, this one also tells us nothing new. At least, it tells people LIKE us nothing new. We have known for years that the government was in the business of contracting businesses to disrupt and distract us from our unofficial investigations. We have also known, for years, that they are in the practice of committing whatever character assassination campaigns they need to in order to marginalize various writers, researchers or other alternative leaders as the need arose.

This is the gist of Mr. Greenwald’s big revelation. He says it’s true what the “conspiracy theorists” have been saying all this time… and “he has the documents!” to prove it.

Sound like someone else we know?

He even tossed in a mention of Cass Sunstein to buy himself the appearance of credibility which apparently is working. You can find Mr. Greenwald’s “truth telling” article plastered up on such sites as Washington’s Blog, Blacklisted News, Zero Hedge, Information Clearinghouse, Daily Kos, Above Top Secret and many others.

Are we “conspiracy theorists” really that predictable that all one has to do is ring the Sunstein bell and we come to the table drooling like Pavlov’s idiots? Does Greenwald really think it’s that easy to “game us” as one of his “leaked” slides suggests?

Let me explain something:

  • Mr. Greenwald is in the employ of a globalist billionaire and his task is to create a marketable “truth telling” website that will endure after the new CISPA shuts down many of the websites I just listed above (and this one) leaving a great deal of readers without access to a trustworthy alternative news site.
  • The new collaboration website is clearly targeting that potential market for a variety of reasons.
  • Mr. Sunstein headed up the 5 person committee of globalists who put together President Obama’s recommendations for how to “fix” the “crisis” caused by the Snowden leaks.

Let’s not forget… Mr. Greenwald has been a key advocate of the Wikileaks psyop from the very beginning and he’s been selling these Snowden “leaks” like they were his personal cash cow for nearly a year now. After having cashed in with the billionaire globalist on this website, Mr. Greenwald now produces a leak which promises to garner him attention and trust in the very market that will soon enough be looking for a new home.

I don’t buy it and neither should you.

Sure Mr. Greenwald mentions Cass Sunstein in his new article, but does he really delve into explaining what Sunstein wrote and what it means?


There’s a reason for that.

Take a look at an article I wrote on this website back in Dec. of 2010 (yes Glenn, that was over 3 years ago) dealing with Wikileaks and Cass Sunstein. For those of you in the know you will recall that Cass Sunstein wrote about Wikileaks in 2007, even BEFORE they published their first leak. Wikileaks like the Snowden psyop, was a Sunstein project.

Take a look at an explanation of Mr. Sunstein’s contributions to our current situation:

“Sunstein co-authored a 2008 paper with Adrian Vermeule, titled “Conspiracy Theories,” in which they wrote, “The existence of both domestic and foreign conspiracy theories, we suggest, is no trivial matter, posing real risks to the government’s antiterrorism policies, whatever the latter may be.” They go on to propose that, “the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups“,[22] where they suggest, among other tactics, “Government agents (and their allies) might enter chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine percolating conspiracy theories by raising doubts about their factual premises, causal logic or implications for political action.”

Sunstein and Vermeule also analyze the practice of secret government payments to outside commentators, who are then held out as independent experts; they suggest that “government can supply these independent experts with information and perhaps prod them into action from behind the scenes,” further warning that “too close a connection will be self-defeating if it is exposed.”[22] Sunstein and Vermeule argue that the practice of enlisting non-government officials, “might ensure that credible independent experts offer the rebuttal, rather than government officials themselves. There is a tradeoff between credibility and control, however. The price of credibility is that government cannot be seen to control the independent experts.”” Wiki

Sunstein’s real contribution isn’t so much that they need to cognitively infiltrate various conspiracy theory groups, they’ve been doing that for years. What his focus was really on was creating new groups and new fake alternative leaders who would carefully bring the stragglers back into the fold of the official narrative. To do that he suggested they provide these “independent experts” with various information that would buy them credibility in certain circles. Like “leaks” perhaps? Like “leaks” exposing Sunstein’s cognitive infiltration techniques perhaps?

Wikileaks served two purposes. They used the fake leaks to reinforce various narratives they wanted sold to the public involving international figures they didn’t like and it also served as a honey pot, sucking in countless real leaks to never again see the light of day (and probably arresting or disappearing whomever sent them)

What we are talking about here with this project is us being corralled into yet another limited hangout venue, this one owned by a billionaire globalist and run by his lawyer turned “alternative” journalist lackey. Surely it will be a honeypot as well, guaranteed to register your visit and load your system with tracking cookies and whatever else they have dreamed up these past few years.

More importantly, like Di$info Jone$, Mr. Greenwald is being installed as a new false prophet, a Pied Piper if you will, who will lead us salivating conspiracy theorists back to the warm comfortable confines of whatever conventional wisdom they deem appropriate for our consumption.

It’s kinda cute that in order to do that, he baits the hook with Cass Sunstein but I guess that was easier than having Glenn recant his position on 9/11.

Don’t fall for this one folks. Glenn’s always been a sleaze peddler and that hasn’t changed one bit, Sunstein mention or no. Let’s show him what I already know and he damn sure should know by now… we’re smarter than that.
