As Stacy cannily points out, Rauhauser earned his living by bedazzling leftists with his BS about arcane data mining tools and file secrecy programs. The idea was to hide all of their underhanded ops while exposing the equivalent ones from the other side, which they assumed must be there, but which kept on receding as approached like a rainbow with a pot of gold at the end of it. Thus did the spycraft fantasists beguile themselves. It doesn't take Hamlet digging a yard beneath to blow them to the sky, when these guys do it themselves. It's satisfying in the same way as videotaped jihadis exploding themselves while making bombs or lobbing mortars against allied positions. Somehow, despite all the focus on security, this mental midget decided to bolster his cred by posting his methods online in public forums, where technologically challenged conservatives made screen caps, shrugged their shoulders, and saved them for a rainy day.
Brooks Bayne has a great post from yesterday, which Stacy picked up on, in which he reveals the way in which another leftist super spy, Matt Edelstein, aka @shoq, blew himself up in the most ridiculous Wile E. Coyote fashion imaginable, by (illegally in Florida) recording conversations with a colleague suspected of being a double agent to #stoprush, then sending the audio out to a group that included, among others, the target of his counter-investigation. D'oh. Anyway, Brooks has the dirt on their sock-puppeting, among other things. Hilariously, it appears that the programmatic multiplication of online personalities that are the stock in trade of these operatives was what screwed Shoq.
Oh, what a tangled, etc. You can have some grand amusement watching these idiots try to stamp out their subterfuegos, now they've burned themselves with them.
Yesterday, professional ass Al Sharpton continued yammering about how Fast and Furious was begun under Boooosh! even after, earlier in the day, Eric Holder was forced formally to admit that despite his repeated iteration of the charge before Congress, it was untrue. I guess dummy didn't get the memo.
Unfortunately, all of this fraud seems to have gone mainstream in the persons of Kent and Jill Easter, lawyers, who decided to try to frame a PTA volunteer whom they felt was being too harsh on their son. SWATting, what Kimberlin tried to do to Aaron Walker when he claimed Walker physically assaulted him, the persecution of whistleblowers in government agencies, all of these tactics are designed to deprive people of their livings, their freedom or even their lives simply because some vicious putz finds them politically disagreeable, or they've taken personal umbrage. One is simply that important.
Somewhere, deep down, I think these people know they're lying, but they believe, at the same time, that if they pervert the truth often enough, reality will conform to their perversions. One is simply that important.
