Group At Center Of Iowa Caucus App Chaos Birthed By Billionaire-Funder Of Alabama DisInfo Campaign

Authored by Max Blumenthal via TheGrayZone.com,



Silicon Valley billionaire Reid Hoffman funded the creation of ACRONYM, the group that sabotaged the Iowa caucus results, after bankrolling voter manipulation campaigns including the notorious online “false flag operation” in Alabama’s 2017 senate race.

/>



At the time of publication, February 6, the winner of the Iowa’s Democratic Party caucus is still unknown. Senator Bernie Sanders, the clear winner in virtually every exit poll, is currently ahead in votes. Yet somehow Pete Buttigieg, a favorite of the party establishment who was unknown to most voters until last year, has claimed victory.



The force accused of sowing the confusion and disarray surrounding the first Democratic Party contest of the 2020 election season is a dark money nonprofit called Acronym. It was Acronym that launched Shadow Inc, the mysterious company behind the now-infamous, unsecured, completely unworkable voter app which prevented precinct chairs from reporting vote totals on caucus night.



The exceptionally opaque Acronym was itself created with seed money from a Silicon Valley billionaire named Reid Hoffman who has financed a series of highly manipulative social media campaigns.



The billionaire founder of LinkedIn, Hoffman is a top funder of novel Democratic Party social media campaigns accused of manipulating voters through social media. He is assisted by Dmitri Mehlhorn, a corporate consultant who pushed school privatization before joining Hoffman’s political empire.



One of the most consequential beneficiaries of Hoffman’s wealth is Acronym CEO Tara McGowan, a 33-year-old former journalist and Obama for America veteran.





Acronym CEO Tara McGowan with Barack Obama, her former boss



Once touted as “a weapon of a woman whose innovative tactics make her critically important to the Democratic Party,” McGowan’s name is now synonymous with the fiasco in Iowa. She also happens to be married to a senior advisor to Pete Buttieg’s presidential campaign.



Back in December 2018, McGowan personally credited Hoffman and Mehlhorn’s “Investing in US” initiative for the birth of her dark money pressure group, Acronym.




“I’m personally grateful and proud to be included in this group of incredible political founders + startups @reidhoffman and his team, led by Dmitri [Mehlhorn], have supported and helped to fund over the past two years,” she declared on Twitter in December 2018.





At the time, Hoffman had just been exposed for funding Project Birmingham, a covert disinformation campaign consisting of false flag tactics that aimed to depress voter turnout and create the perception of Russian interference in the 2017 Alabama senate election.



Hoffman and Mehlhorn have also faced scrutiny for their alleged operation of a series of deceptive pages which attempted to manipulate center-right users into voting for Democrats. Today, Acronym’s McGowan oversees a massive Facebook media operation that employs similarly deceptive techniques to sway voters.



Through youthful, tech-centric operatives like McGowan, Hoffman and Mehlhorn are constructing a massive new infrastructure that could supplant the party’s apparatus.



As Vanity Fair reported, “Hoffman and Mehlhorn, after all, are not just building a power base that could supplement traditional Democratic organizations, they are, potentially, laying the groundwork to usurp the D.N.C. entirely.”



‘Laying the groundwork to usurp the D.N.C. entirely’

Having fostered friendships with nationally known Silicon Valley oligarchs like right-wing libertarian Trump supporter Peter Thiel and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Reid Hoffman, the founder of LinkedIn, is now making his name as a top sugardaddy of the Democratic anti-Trump resistance.



Following Trump’s election in 2016, Hoffman plowed his money into an array of new Democrat-aligned social media groups through a funding hub he founded called Investing in US.



To run Investing in US on a day-to-day basis, Hoffman tapped Dmitri Mehlhorn, a venture capitalist and political strategist accustomed to walking the line between the corporate world and Democratic Party.




“There was no risk-capital or growth-capital arm of the resistance, and so that is what we’ve tried to build,” Mehlhorn told Vanity Fair.



“Now, in terms of what that implies, that implies that we are backing founders, so people who we think have big, potentially game-changing ideas.”




Mehlhorn’s career path tracked closely with neoliberal party favorites like Pete Buttigieg and Cory Booker. He studied at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, launched his career at McKinsey Associates, and became a leading advocate for school privatization as the chief operating officer of Michelle Rhee’s StudentsFirst.



According to Mehlhorn’s bio, he sits on the board of American Prison Data Systems, a company that claims to reduce recidivism by giving prisoners tablets to study coding for five hours a day.





Dmitri Mehlhorn



Mehlhorn is also an advisor to the Democratic group DigiDems, which Pete Buttigieg’s 2020 presidential campaign paid $1,540 for technology services.



In a 2018 Medium post, announcing the “founders” that Investing in US planned to back, Mehlhorn resorted to distinctly neoconservative talking points to emphasize the mission of his organization.



After quoting Ronald Reagan, he declared, “Trump and his movement, borrowing heavily from other authoritarian criminals such as Hugo Chavez and Vladimir Putin, promised to hollow out America’s principles in favor of his own personal enrichment.”



Pledging to “inoculate our politics and our economy against corruption, white nationalism, and mass deceit,” Mehlhorn announced major donations to “diverse groups” with names like Woke Vote, PushBlack, and an “anti-Nazi” organization known as Integrity for America.



Among the top recipients of support from Investing in US was McGowan’s Acronym, which Mehlhorn described merely as a “media group.”



As The Grayzone reported, Acronym has ballooned since its founding into a massive dark money operation, even launching a Super PAC dubbed Pacronym that has raked in money from hedge fund billionaires like Seth Klarman and Donald Sussman.



What Mehlhorn and Hoffman never disclosed to the public, however, was their support for a Democrat-aligned group that waged a covert online disinformation campaign which aimed to influence the outcome of the 2017 special senate election in Alabama.



Project Birmingham: From New Knowledge to no knowledge

The 2017 senate election in Alabama was one of the most dramatic races of President Donald Trump’s first term in office. Treated by national media as a referendum on Trump in a red state, it pitted a far-right Republican, Roy Moore, against Doug Jones, a moderate Republican who ran as a Democrat. In the end, Jones won an upset victory in a deep red state, thrilling Democrats across the country.



As Dan Cohen wrote in a series of reports for The Grayzone, the outcome of the 2017 Alabama race was heavily influenced by an online disinformation operation. The campaign, which was unknown to voters at the time, was called Project Birmingham.



Silicon Valley billionaire Reid Hoffman provided $100,000 to the architects of this black ops campaign. His money was pipelined through American Engagement Technologies (AET), a company run by Obama administration veteran and Democrat tech operative Mikey Dickerson. Through AET, another firm comprised of Obama campaign veterans and national security state operatives called New Knowledge was contracted to carry out the secretive voter manipulation project.



In internal documents first covered by the New York Times, Project Birmingham’s architects described the scheme as an “elaborate false flag operation” which aimed to convince voters that the Kremlin was supporting Moore through thousands of fake Russian bots.



Project Birmingham went to absurd lengths to drive voters away from Moore. Its architects deployed a phony Facebook page encouraging Alabamians to vote for an obscure write-in Republican candidate, arranged interviews for the candidate in major newspapers, and even sought to arrange SuperPAC funding for his dark horse campaign.



The deeply un-democratic campaign was overseen by a cast of characters remarkably similar to those who bungled the 2020 Iowa caucus count. Like the staff of Acronym and Shadow Inc., the New Knowledge operatives who carried out Project Birmingham were 30- and 40-something techies who had worked in the Obama administration and on various Democratic campaigns. (New Knowledge was rebranded as Yonder after the scandal was exposed in national media.)



The devious tactics they waged in Alabama likely influenced the outcome of the election. A leaked “Project Birmingham Debrief” claimed that New Knowledge’s black operations “moved enough votes to ensure a Doug Jones victory.”



After the scheme was exposed, Hoffman issued a public apology and claimed he had no knowledge of the New Knowledge disinformation project. He said nothing about the Investing in US employee who worked directly on Project Birmingham, however.



This was hardly the first time Hoffman and Mehlhorn’s finger prints were discovered on a deceptive voter manipulation campaign.



Aiming to ‘mirror’ the tactics of Russia’s Internet Research Agency

Following the 2018 midterm congressional election, Reid Hoffman and his henchman Dmitri Mehlhorn faced further scrutiny in national media, this time for operating a fake news-style organization called News for Democracy.



This shady outfit managed an array of community Facebook pages initially focusing on sports, Christianity, patriotism, and other topics that were likely to generate interest from right-wing voters in swing states.



Yet the seemingly locally-branded cultural pages took a decisively political turn as election night approached. After racking up millions of likes, News for Democracy slipped in ads for Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke on a Facebook page targeting evangelical Christians, and attacked a Republican candidate, Senator Marsha Blackburn, on a page focused on local Tennessee sports.



While Hoffman’s right-hand man, Mehlhorn, claimed to reject the spread of misinformation, he told the Washington Post that through projects like News for Democracy, he aimed to “mirror” the tactics of the notorious Russian Internet Research Agency troll farm.




Facebook eventually launched an investigation into the insidious manipulation ploys of Hoffman and Mehlhorn’s News for Democracy.



The very tactics that landed the two in hot water are remarkably similar to those that Tara McGowan, the Acronym founder who disrupted the Iowa caucuses, has put on display.



McGowan recently founded Courier Newsroom, a seemingly journalistic initiative that appeared to take on a more overtly partisan role with time. Like News for Democracy, Courier Newsroom has opened local news pages on Facebook with unassuming names like “The Virginia Dogwood” or “Arizona’s Copper Courier.” After seeding the pages with folksy local stories, Courier Newsroom bombards users with pro-Democrat political messaging.



As Bloomberg reported, McGowan used “her sizable war chest and digital advertising savvy to pay to have her articles placed into the Facebook feeds of swing-state users.” McGowan then used “that feedback to find more people like them.”



One of McGowan’s dubious news pages, the Virginia Dogwood, spent a whopping $275,000 on Facebook ads during the 2018 midterm elections.



“We’ll try it, see if we can make it work, and hopefully become a permanent piece of the new infrastructure,” McGowan told Bloomberg.



Tara McGowan’s shenanigans in Iowa could be seen in the light of a wider string of manipulations by the Silicon Valley-backed neoliberal network behind her. While Democratic Party elites blame incompetence for the fiasco in Iowa, the history of Acronym and its billionaire backers casts a disturbing shadow over the whole episode.

Trump Exposes Pelosi And Son's Ties To Ukraine-Linked Energy Group

Trump Exposes Pelosi And Son's Ties To Ukraine-Linked Energy Group

Well, this is a little awkward...



Having earlier called Speaker Nancy Pelosi “desperate," a clearly frustrated President Trump told reporters this week, following a video teleconference with U.S. troops,




“she hates the Republican Party. She hates all of the people that voted for me and the Republican Party."

Read More
>




Marc Short, chief of staff to Vice President Pence, said of Trump on “Fox News Sunday.”




He's frustrated [with] what he found to be a completely unreasonable impeachment.




And that frustration boiled over as the president tweeted a link to something that the Democrats may have trouble fully explaining...




"Wow Crazy Nancy, what’s going on? This is big stuff!"




Shortly after his mother became the first woman speaker, Paul Pelosi Jr., was hired by InfoUSA for $180,000 a year as its vice president for Strategic Planning.



Nancy Pelosi’s son Paul is also on the board of an energy company.



As Patrick Howley reports, Nancy Pelosi's son Paul Pelosi Jr. (who went to Ukraine in 2017) was a board member of Viscoil and executive at its related company NRGLab, which did energy business in Ukraine!




And Speaker Pelosi even appears in the company’s video commercials...





And Howley confirms NGRLabs links to Ukraine...






Of course, while there is no allegations of wrongdoing in the Pelosi case (and certainly no political intervention which we know Biden admitted publicly), it does make you wonder just how deep the cookie jar goes in Ukraine...





And explains why the country suddenly became a key strategic ally.

Bipartisan Group Of NYC Lawmakers Pushing For "Gentrification Tax"

Bipartisan Group Of NYC Lawmakers Pushing For "Gentrification Tax"

It's almost as if New York politicians are deliberately trying to crash NYC's housing market.



On Christmas Day, the New York Post reported that a bipartisan group of NYC lawmakers is pushing Albany to change state laws and close a loophole that extends tax breaks to homebuyers in gentrifying neighborhoods.



The "gentrification tax" law would requ

Read More
ire homebuyers to pay taxes at the market rate, rather than at the much-lower assessed value.





Presently, homebuyers across the five boroughs who buy multimillion dollar brownstones and other existing homes often pay less in taxes than those who buy more moderately priced homes.



Republican Staten Island City Council member Joe Borelli is spearheading the movement to end the tax loophole. He told the Post that New Yorkers are "just getting fed up" with the unfair treatment.



"My proposal would end the practice of charging more tax on $500k home on Staten Isl etc. than a $2m home in Park Slope," Borelli tweeted on Thursday. "This can be done Jan. 1."



Borelli also blamed Mayor de Blasio for creating the 'yuppie tax' loophole.




Borelli's coalition also includes Park Slope Democrat Brad Lander and Bay Ridge Democrat Justin Brannan, two other members of the city council, which is controlled by Democrats.



The NY Post breaks down the impact of the gentrification tax thusly: A buyer who snapped up a Clinton Hill brownstone for $3 million in 2017 only pays taxes on a fraction of the buying price, leaving the building's new owner with a tax bill of just $4,297 a year.





Joe Borelli



Meanwhile, the owner of a $500,000 Bergen Beach bungalow pays a nearly identical amount, even though the bungalow is worth roughly one-sixth of the brownstone.



The change to opaque state tax laws advocated by Borelli would raise the brownstone owner's annual tax bill by $1,600, while the owner of the bungalow would see no increase.



Of course, the changes would come with drawbacks: Back in April, New York State passed a revised 'mansion tax'. First passed in 1989 by New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, New York’s original mansion tax was a 1% tax on statewide sales of homes of $1 million or more. Under the original tax, if a house, co-op, or condo sold for $1.25 million, the buyer would have paid a tax of $12,500, in addition to whatever other taxes they would pay.



For fiscal year 2020, the statewide mansion tax will remain at 1% for property purchased for $1 million or more. For properties in NYC, however, the 'progressive' mansion tax will rise incrementally with purchase prices of $2 million or more, capping out at a total of 3.9% for properties sold at $25 million or above. Homes sold for $1 million+ outside of NYC but within New York state won't be affected by the progressive taxes.



Homebuyers in New York state (including NYC) will also need to factor in the Republican tax plan's rejection of the SALT deductions.



Borelli sent the proposed resolution to City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and state Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie earlier this month. Johnson spokeswoman Jennifer Fermino said the speaker is waiting for a preliminary report from a city property tax reform commission that he and Mayor de Blasio commissioned back in 2018.



With the new mansion tax, it's hardly surprising that Manhattan home sales plunged in Q3. Will we see more housing market pain in Q4 and the new year? Investors don't need a magic 8-ball to figure that one out.

Three civilians and one police officer were killed during the

shooting on Tuesday, with the civilian victims later being named as members of the local Chassidic community.



The tragedy took place in a “historically black neighborhood where an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community recently has taken root,” reported the Wall Street Journal.



David Anderson was subsequently named as one of the shooters, with NBC New York reporting that he had made anti-Semitic and anti-police statements online.




Anderson was “once associated with the Black Hebrew Israelite movement,” reports Heavy.com.



The Black Hebrew Israelite movement is described as “Groups of Black Americans who believe they are descendants of the ancient Israelites.”



However, despite this information being known yesterday, Rep. Rashida Tlaib tweeted earlier today, “This is heartbreaking. White supremacy kills.”



Tlaib deleted the tweet after an immediate backlash pointing out that at least one of the shooters was a black supremacist, not a white supremacist.

Trans Lobbying Group Pushes 'Puberty-Blockers' On Children As Young As 12

Trans Lobbying Group Pushes 'Puberty-Blockers' On Children As Young As 12

In the latest example of transgender community advocates offering advice to schools and parents that doctors and health officials warn could be harmful to children if followed, an NGO in the UK is facing a backlash for telling teachers that so-called 'puberty blockers' are harmless and should be given to children as young as 12 who are questioning their gender identity.

Read More
>

According to RT, medical professionals have warned that this advice is "disturbing," and that the effects of puberty blockers can't be easily reversed without harming the child.





The recommendation was made by the trans lobbying group Mermaids during a meeting with 20 teachers and support workers at Newman University in Birmingham. The group said that this treatment would be "beneficial" for the child because it would offer them "immense relief", while also being "completely reversible" if they decide they don't want to pursue a transition.



Though the meeting was held back in December, this recommendation was first reported by the Times on Sunday. Critics worry that this advice is now part of a blueprint for future Mermaids training sessions with teachers and school staff.




"Puberty blocker medication doesn't make any changes," the trainer said during the meeting. Instead, it simply puts "a pause button on the pituitary gland and freezes puberty where it is." The biological processes "will recommence" as soon as the treatment is stopped.




This advice didn't sit well with one of the school support workers who attended the meeting. He taped the Mermaids trainer delivering this advice, and told the Times that he was concerned that the group was deliberately trying to convince children that they were "born in the wrong body."




"This is putting children at risk," he said.




He isn't alone in harboring these concerns. Michael Biggs, an associate professor in sociology at St Cross College, Oxford, told the Times that this strategy is deliberately designed to push young children toward a medical transition.




"Mermaids [are] not giving pupils a choice that they may just be gay or lesbian. Instead, it is diverted down a drastic path that ultimately ends in surgery. To be propagating such information to schools is disturbing," he said.




In response to the Times story, Mermaids published a statement on its website saying its 'advice' was based on an "international scientific study and 25 years of experience in this field." Amusingly, the group also revealed that it had received funding from the UK's Department for Education through a program "overseen by the Government Equalities Office."



Earlier this year, a group of medical specialists in the US and UK warned about the long-term effects of puberty-blockers and hormonal drugs, calling them a "grave public health concern."

away to reveal images of the Cambodian genocide while Heng narrates. 





"This is the face of socialism and ignorance," says Heng, asking "Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror of socialism?"



"My father was minutes from death in Cambodia before a forced marriage saved his life. That’s socialism. Forced obedience. Starvation. Mine is a face of freedom. My skin is not white. I’m not outrageous, racist or socialist. I’m a Republican," she continues. 





Instead of addressing the merit of Heng's ad, Ocastio-Cortez played the race card.  



"Republicans are running TV ads setting pictures of me on fire to convince people they aren’t racist," tweeted the freshman lawmaker, adding "Life is weird!"





AOC's fellow "Squad"-mate Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) was similarly triggered by the ad, calling "The mere act of burner her image" a "display of violence." 



"Folks need to stick to facts & policy positions," she added - perhaps unaware of the irony.





Heng - a former staffer to California GOP Rep. Ed Royce (who lost a state House race during the last cycle), hit back - saying in a statement "This ad is about fighting the socialist agenda that has taken over the Democratic Party," adding "I am not afraid to engage in a debate of ideas, and it is the AOC extremists that have to resort in name calling because they don’t have real solutions for our country."
