Investigative journalism Maga-style. Dude just busted Biden, who was hiding his Antifa essence by cleverly concealing it at Antifa.com. Behind the Guy Fawkes masks, it was always Joe Biden.

I've been waiting for this report in nearly two weeks. You started to promote this a little too early. But I'm excited to read it! 😊
Every time we come close there's more stuff we find and have to add to the articles

2 Russian Air Force Tupolev Tu-134AK planes, outfitted with first-class cabins and special comms, have been detected flying from Moscow to Minsk; in Soviet times high-ranking party officials flew in such planes, now Russian top brass does. rbc.ru/politics/12/08…

Ever since mid-June, the network’s been outspokenly anti-Trump, criticizing his response to Covid-19, the George Floyd protests and, of course, relations with China.

Its reaction time was pretty impressive. After @SecPompeo announced his expansion of the Clean Networks policy, Spamouflage had a video published within 36 hours. Not quite same-news-cycle stuff, but they’re obviously watching closely and reacting fast.

The network kicked into really high gear after the U.S. ordered the closure of China’s consulate in Houston…

The quality of Spamouflage’s videos was pretty low. These accounts posted about the U.S., but some of the (automated) voice-overs couldn’t even pronounce “U.S.” (They called it “us”.) Not sure what “sinaction” is, either.

Some of the amplification came from accounts with AI-generated profile pictures. At the moment there’s still a quick spot for these: superimpose them and the eyeballs line up. But we keep seeing networks try this. We need a serious talk about the impacts of this technology.

Early this year, the network started pushing pro-China content about coronavirus, in Chinese. In mid-June, it started running videos in English (bilingual subtitles). They criticized the U.S. over Covid and race - just as the U.S. was criticizing China over Covid and HK.

We exposed Spamouflage last year, when it was posting in Chinese about the Hong Kong protests. Spamou used fake and hijacked accounts across platforms. High volume, low impact. We don’t know who’s behind it. It doesn’t look state-of-the-art. graphika.com/spamouflage

NEW FIND: remember pro-China network Spamouflage Dragon?

It’s started posting videos in English that focus on U.S. politics, including the election.

It’s still spammy and low-impact, but it’s high-volume and quick to react.

Really neat -- @gianfiorella and @questiionn01 watched footage of Memphis Belle (1944 documentary on a B-17 bomber active during WW2) and geolocated where all of the bombing runs took place.

New @Graphika_NYC report exposes a network of fake accounts posting videos to hurt Trump's reelection bid. Dubbed "Spamouflage Dragon," it also shows "the first direct reference to Biden from the Chinese" -- presumptive Dem nominee Biden depicted favorably washingtonpost.com/technology/202…

83 days to go, down in the polls, and the Trump comms team is...attacking a Republican Congressman in order to defend QAnon conspiracies.

Just laser-focused on the task at hand.

This is a reminder that geolocation has many applications. Historians and film fans can use these techniques to find out more about past events. If you want to know more about using modern tools to solve old mysteries, read the full case study! bellingcat.com/resources/2020…

We geolocated one of the bombing runs to Wilhelmshaven, using historical aerial reconnaissance imagery to start. A crowdsourcing effort (big up to @nixintel & @_Hydrofish for their work on this!) determined that the other sequences were filmed over France.

In reply to @bellingcat
By stitching together frames from the movie, we created panoramas of the bombing runs. In total, we identified bombing runs over *four different sites*
 
Eliot Higgins Retweeted ·  
In reply to @bellingcat
The footage was filmed by crews aboard Allied bombers over targets in Europe. The film suggests all of the targets were located in Wilhelmshaven, Germany. But were they? We checked, using the same techniques we use to geolocate images from modern day conflicts.

Do you like history? Documentaries? Historical documentaries? Then you are in the right place ;)

Check out @gianfiorella and @questiionn01 on geolocating sequences from the 1944 documentary "Memphis Belle: Story of a Flying Fortress"

It's a conundrum. You either create an echo chamber or drown in one.

The way I see it if some idiot knocked on my door and started telling me about Q or how Douma was a false flag I'd shut the door on their face and go about my business, so it might as well be the same on Twitter.

My block list is longer than my following list and the experience is far, far better than it was two years ago.
This is why I just freely block anyone who has even the whiff of tankie or conspiracy theorist around them, not like they'll ever contribute something to my life that'll be a net positive, so why have them in my life at all?

Remember training manuals advise truncheon blows to less visible body areas away from the face. So we're likely only seeing the tip of the iceberg. You can also see in the footage that most of these poor guys have some sort of covering over their knees / ankles. Horrific.

We obtained one of these so-called Russian/encrypted/white SIM cards via a source close to the criminal world. Paid around $100 in Bitcoin, a small package arrived very quickly after. Allowed us to buy a data SIM without giving identifying info to a teleco vice.com/en_us/article/…

Here's someone selling a so-called Russian SIM. In the demonstration, they show how easy it is spoof whatever number you want. Some cards also add the worthwhile benefit of being worldwide, unlimited data SIMs criminals obtain anonymously via Bitcoin vice.com/en_us/article/…

These SIM cards, sourced through word of mouth networks, companies online, or street dealers, even let people spoof the number of a bank to scam victims. Want to ring up someone, but leave a random number on their phone? Also possible vice.com/en_us/article/…

New: recently got a call from France. That's what my phone said. Turned out the caller was using a SIM that spoofs any number they want. Went into the underground industry of these SIMs, that can also add voice manipulation.

THREAD: I am now at the end (hopefully) of a week-long journey through the Kafkaesque maze of the Government’s COVID-19 self-isolation bureaucracy. It strikes me as a perfect illustration of how inept and amateurish the governance of the UK has sadly become. 1/

Again, @OCCRP has real impact - German officials have acted on our Troika Laundromat story with raids and a money laundering investigation. The Russian government at the time called our story non news. I guess they were wrong. washingtonpost.com/business/germa…

The handiwork of Belarusian riot police who, according to this protester, punched, kicked, and beat him with their shields in detention. “In my mind, I said goodbye to my family,” he says.

A US government watchdog investigation into the "emergency” sale of more than $8bn in weapons to Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies has found the state department failed to “fully assess” or mitigate the risk of civilian casualties in Yemen.

As an aside, it's interesting to see that there's always the same hardcore group of a few dozen accounts who seem to produce a huge number of conspiracy theories regarding international events. Whether it's regarding Syria, CW, Venezuela, the US, it's always the same group.

Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I'm proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.

I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate.
