This Is Groundbreaking, You Can’t Make This Shit Up. Or Can You?
True or not this story is very interesting and has a lot of important facts in it. Found on the Conservative Daily Post, which has been known from time to time to post false stories.
The story goes like this…
A hacker broke into the encrypted network of Clinton Campaign’s Super PAC, Correct The Record, during the debate last week. They were using a program called SLACK which obviously has some vulnerabilities. What was discovered was a conversation between two head coordinators of the Clinton Campaign’s social influence and image. Sounds innocent right? They were talking about murder. Using NSA technologies leaked by Edward Snowden called FOXACID, David Brock and Elliot Fink were making plans to track down the most influential supporters of the Trump following. They specifically name leaders of the “anon boards”, “reddit boards” and “chan boards” as direct targets for DOXING (which means exposing). The conversation goes on to discuss hurting people and alludes to Title 18 Section 2381, which states “whoever…levies war against them…shall suffer death” which is the punishment for Treason.
Read the conversation for yourself. These guys are talking like its just another day, only their guy (or girl) happens to be under fire and they are taking the offensive.
Working for Hillary Clinton is the most significant techno-political force in the game, David Brock’s Super PAC, Correct The Record. CTR modestly describes itself as “a pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC.” RTN paints a more vivid picture: CTR “is a battalion of paid trolls whose job it is to disrupt, demoralize, and defame any Trump supporters and message boards.”
This description comes from a post at RTN by “Max Insider,” dated September 27, 2016, which was a day after the first presidential debate. Max Insider adds that CTR trolls “communicate using a secure messaging software called ‘Slack’ pictured above.”
And that’s when things get really interesting.
Max Insider explains:
We were able to get some monitoring software onto a junior analyst’s laptop to take a look inside the Slack-channel where they were doing work. What we found was startling. In the fall-out from last night’s debate, they are beginning a new campaign of targeted harassment (or worse) against the “ring leaders” of the decentralized online Trump movement.
Without a traditional campaign infrastructure to target, it appears they have been reduced to going after the “most influential voices” in the online debate.
Now we will make our way through this CTR chat. I don’t expect the image below to make much sense at first glance, so I will highlight and discuss elements of it as we proceed. Please be advised there is some offensive language involved–call it “locker room talk.”
First of all, who are these people? As we’ll see, brock is David Brock and efink is apparently Elliot Fink, another CTR employee.
Next, what are they discussing?

set the channel purpose: clean up this mes[s]
brock [5:52 AM]
joined post-debate from an invitation by @ekim
“Why correct the record, David, when you can just delete it?”
efink [5:55 AM]
the only good thing about it was that whoever that was, she looked pretty good. how tf did they do that?
By “this mess” they mean the voter reaction to the first debate. Fink is saying that “the only good thing about” the first debate is that “whoever she was” looked pretty good. As disturbing as it sounds, Fink is saying that he doesn’t know who the woman was in the first debate or how “they” pulled off the deception, but it worked. If you’re interested, I have written about this issue before here at CDP.
brock [5:56 AM]
i can’t talk [about how “they” put the woman into the debate]. very hush hush. still, we’ve lost every online poll and we need to get tough here. get this under control.
still, i hope we put the sick thing to bed.
In light of Hillary Clinton’s chronic health problems, it is hard not to conclude that Fink and “brock” are referring to her as ” the sick thing.”
ekim [5:59 AM]
i don’t see what’s so bad. She [“whoever that was”] looked really healthy! I thought she did GREAT!
she [i.e., Hillary Clinton, “the sick thing”] was scoring 3 on AMTS a couple of weeks ago and 22 on mmse. Yeah, whoever that was was normal.
AMTS means “Abbreviated Mental Test Score” and MMSE means “Mini Mental State Exam.” Both tests are used to assess confusion and cognitive impairment. So, how did “the sick thing” do?
There are ten questions on the AMTS, each worth 1 point. A score of 6 or less indicates dementia or delirium.
A couple weeks before the first debate, apparently Hillary Clinton scored a 3.
With a 22, she fared no better on the MMSE scale:
- ≥25 – normal
- 21 – 24 – mild impairment
- 10 – 20 – moderate impairment
- <10 – severe impairment
That level of cognitive impairment would have been obvious to everyone watching, but “whoever that was” in the first debate against Trump, “was normal.” Nevertheless, Fink is fuming.
but the telemetry sucks. look at all the snap onlines: we’re losing 100%
ekim [6:01 AM]
but those don’t mean anything
efink [6:01 AM]
it means they’re enthusiastic. organized. if they [i.e., Trump supporters] can swarm a poll whats to stop them swarming a voting booth?
it also creates a counter-nar[rative]. the free press will sniff it. we have to stop the bleeding.
[but] don’t worry. we have something. GET SHAW OUT OF BED.
cshaw [6:06 AM]I read the [post-debate] round-up. It looked good?
brock [6:07 AM]
the round up my burning ass. I’m talking about the real world. Trump made her look like a girl. Today we hit back. We hit back hard.
efink [6:10 AM]
okay. guys, this is 18-2381 stuff. Got it?
“this is 18-2381 stuff”
cshaw [6:10 AM]
ekim [6:10 AM]
efink [6:11 AM]
alright. … we need to start hurting people and that’s what this is about. This is about winning because we’ll never get a chance at this again. everything is justified. David?
brock [6:11 AM]
f**k–okay. so the Trump team is an emergent order. thirty million little chan and reddit a**holes that bump around and then congeal to vote in a poll or push a meme or make a hashtag trend or whatever. This is new. It isn’t like fighting a centrally organized campaign.
It’s more like fighting a disease.
So what we need to do is break the pattern. The usual means isn’t working. Trump’s too charismatic. Morale is too high. This is an army of chaos[,] folks.
so we have full clearance. Word of God.
Max Insider believes “Word of God” refers to Obama, and I’m inclined to agree.
brock [6:15 AM]
Fink–let’s do this. I have a plane to catch.

This is a slide from an official NSA Powerpoint presentation that was released by Edward Snowden. Dated: 01/08/2007; To Be Declassified On: 11/23/2029
ekim [6:16 AM]Ew.
cshaw [6:16 AM]
i like it! wtf is it??
efink [6:17 AM]
This is manna from heaven, kids.
Max Insider also thinks “heaven” refers to the White House, where “Word of God” lives.
efink [6:18 AM]
We have the use of an NSA intrusion package. We are going to find the thought leaders. the meme-generators. … I need a target analysis for reddit, twitter, and the chans by tomorrow 5 PM.
You will monitor, identify, and using the FA [Foxacid] software set we have, identify/dox
On the Internet, “dox” means to reveal someone’s identity and personal information.
cshaw [6:18 AM]
that [Foxacid] will dox them??
efink [6:20 AM]
It will man-on-the-side [MotS] for the anon boards and intercept traffic. We can use that for IP addresses and loading tracking software and magic lantern onto their devices. …
Details from another slide in the same NSA Powerpoint presentation that Snowden released. “Magic Lantern” is data-tracking software used by the FBI.
ekim [6:26 AM]
What are we going to do with that?
brock [6:27 AM]
[do] u really want [to] f**king know, kim?
ekim [6:27 AM]
brock [6:28 AM]
u better be. I am going to get a plane. …
efink [6:30 AM]
Get those files together.
ekim [6:30 AM]
I’m on it. Do you know what brock is going to do with them? I do kind of want to know, sir.
efink [6:31 AM]
google Seth Rich and shut up about it.
As Max Insider explains, “Seth Rich is the recently deceased (murdered) whistle-blower who gave information to Wikileaks.”
Is this authentic? We can’t know for sure, of course, but there seem to be too many real-world details that mesh together to reject it out of hand. If you ever had any doubt our own government was out to get us, wonder no more. The establishment is so terrified of the positive changes Donald Trump will make, that they’d rather commit treason and murder than let the people have a fair vote. As David Brock said, “This is about winning because we’ll never get a chance at this again. Everything is justified.”
