WANTED: Renee DiResta, Technical manager of the Stanford Internet Observatory, which I wrote about earlier, and Alex Stamos, its Director, for creating a US Stasi--outside of government
Will Stanford finally shut down this illegal operation? Some 'Observatory'! What mischief will these two get up to next?
What is the Stasi? According to Brittanica.com,
“…The Stasi was a highly effective secret police organization. Within East Germany it sought to infiltrate every institution of society and every aspect of daily life… By 1989 the Stasi relied on 500,000 to 2,000,000 collaborators as well as 100,000 regular employees, and it maintained files on approximately 6,000,000 East German citizens—more than one-third of the population.”
The Stanford Internet Observatory—no planets or stars in sight—is a central node in the massive effort to censor EVERYTHING to keep out all the news that the USG and these losers have decided we are not allowed to hear. It is these “professionals” that greased the machinery of totalitarianism that has been creeping in on us further and further these past 3 and a half years. These so-called professionals made destruction of democracy trendy, a well-paid career that many students have now gotten degrees in, according to Mike Benz of the Freedom Foundation Online. They interfaced with social media companies for the USG, and did who knows what else to effectively keep the world population in the dark.
Renee DiResta is central to the operation of turning illegal viewpoint censorship into an academic field, and helped to mislabel free speech as mis, dis and malinformation, then call it a crime, which justified the massive censorship apparatus. She is one of the few fat spiders who spun the web that encircled the US (and other countries) to control what everyone has been allowed to see, and what they are not. She and her buddies like Alex Stamos and Kate Starbird pretended to be ivory tower academics when they were in reality jack-booted Nazis successfully hammering away and destroying our democracy.
From Renee’s own website bio, we can see she is also an expert in newspeak and neologisms:
“Renée DiResta is the technical research manager at Stanford Internet Observatory, a cross-disciplinary program of research, teaching and policy engagement for the study of abuse in current information technologies. Renee investigates the spread of narratives across social and media networks, with an interest in understanding how platform algorithms and affordances intersect with user behavior and factional crowd dynamics. She studies how actors leverage the information ecosystem to exert influence, from domestic activists promoting health misinformation and conspiracy theories, to the full-spectrum information operations executed by state actors…
Renée has degrees in Computer Science and Political Science from the Honors College at SUNY Stony Brook. She is an Emerson Fellow, a 2018-2019 Mozilla Fellow, a 2017 Presidential Leadership Scholar, a Council on Foreign Relations term member, and a Truman National Security Fellow. She is a Harvard Berkman-Klein Center affiliate, and is a Founding Advisor to the Center for Humane Technology, and was previously a Staff Associate at the Columbia University Data Science Institute. She is passionate about STEM education and childhood immunization advocacy, and is one of the co-founders of parent advocacy organization Vaccinate California.”
Alex Stamos is a cybersecurity expert, business leader and entrepreneur working to improve the security and safety of the Internet through his teaching and research at Stanford University. Stamos is an Adjunct Professor at Stanford’s Freeman-Spogli Institute, a William J. Perry Fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation, and a visiting scholar at the Hoover Institution.
Stamos, meanwhile, joined the Stanford Internet Observatory after holding senior cybersecurity positions at Facebook and Yahoo.
