Foreign influence in our elections via Reddit

It’s no secret that our elections in the United States are constantly under attack.  Illegal election influence comes in many forms. It could be anything from”hit piece advertising”, campaign finance violations, voter manipulation, foreign influence, hacking electronic voting machines  to basic ballot stuffing.   It’s common knowledge that governments outside the U.S. A. have made found ways to influence our elections.    It’s hard to say who meddles the most.  It’s not always the so called “enemy”.    If I had to make a list, China would be in the top five.  Add Mexico and the other four of  Five Eyes which are  Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom.  Cannot forget  Israel, Saudi Arabia, France, Germany, Japan, Pakistan, Turkey, etc.  By the way, Yes, our closest allies are just as guilty as the rest.

Russia….still…?

Currently Russia is still being made out like it’s the only country that has tried to influence our elections.   Leading the pack of accusers are the Mainstream Media(MSM)  and the democrats  with their never ending  “spin” on Russia as being the biggest threat to our elections.  Although Russia is a concern, when it comes to the integrity and security of our elections, their focus should be here in the U.S.A..  Americans are the biggest threat to our elections.  What Americans?  The Fascist Left. (*The Fascist Left democrats)

While all the attention is on Russia, Ukraine and unconstitutional impeachment inquiries, etc, the Fascist left may be quietly  creating an environment that helps them cheat in 2020.   That’s a polite way of saying “rigging the election”.  Sometimes I call it “election warming”.  There are many ways to rig an election. An example would be making sure a specific voting machine is used.(tampered or hacked)  Another example  could be sneaking something through legislation that would give their party an “extra” advantage in the next election.   That’s how the democrats gained  control in California.  They rigged the elections. Now they have the super majority in California.  Now the state is being run into the ground.

When I look at how the democrats are running the state I am reminded of 4 junkies trying to hustle cash to cover their drug debt.  I can see them  running a con job with 1 of their cars.

They drive into the path of a moving car and cry whiplash after the car hits them.  The governor is the neck brace wearing idiot in court that was injured.  The secretary of state was driving the car the idiot was in.  The state legislators are the witnesses.  The state AG is the slimy lawyer for the neck brace wearing idiot.  The U.S.A. taxpayers are  the driver of the moving car they drove in front of.(the “mark”)

One thing that I should point out is that democrats often look and act  insane.  That doesn’t mean they’re stupid.   Just remember what happens when the democrats gain control of anything.  If the opportunity arises, they will  change rules and/or laws. They will do  anything  and everything that may  help them  can keep control.  Many of these changes are unethical and some illegal.  Unfortunately, more often than less they go unchallenged.

The Fascist Left also  have Social Media working for them.  We witnessed this on Twitter.  The segregation of Trump supporters wasn’t working good enough to stop the Trump train so Twitter made the decision to stop political advertising .  This will be their excuse to remove other Trump support content on Twitter.   I’ll be surprised if Facebook doesn’t do the same.  Both  share the same “anti-Trump, anti-Right agenda.”  Both being “all they can be” as faithful minions of the Fascist Left.

There is another large social media platform that shares the same ideology as the Fascist Left. I consider them as being one of the main gateways/ hubs to the virtual land of opportunity for anyone who wants to influence our elections. Legally influence or illegally influence, either way, the opportunity is there. I’m talking about Reddit.

Reddit is a online forum/social media platform.  Here are some Reddit facts.

  • In 2018 it ranked 3rd most visited in the U.S.A..
  • In June 2019 Reddit clocked in as the 7th most visited in the world.
  • It has 330 million monthly active users( currently Twitter declined to 269.6 million monthly active users).
  • In 2017 Reddit reported that 54% of it’s users are in the U.S.A..  Basically, Reddit has a ton of traffic.
  • Reddit discriminates against Trump supporters, conservatives or anyone else on the “Right”.  Reddit is aligned with the Fascist left.
  • Because I believe Reddit is breaking various election laws, which would include allowing/aiding a foreign entity to illegally influence our elections.  I consider Reddit to be the armpit of the internet.

Reddit discrimination

I mentioned that Reddit discriminates against Trump Supporters.  We learned this after Reddit unfairly banned all the Qanon subs.  We learned  this when Reddit unfairly Quarantined President Trumps number one online forum/social media/Trump supporter site,  r/The_Donald.  *  Both punished and accused of promoting violence while letting subreddits that do far worse on a daily basis. remain.  Subreddit  r/darkjokes  is a good example..  Racism leads to violence.  Racism occurs daily in darkjokes.  Too racist for me to feel comfortable posting a screenshot.  You can just click on the name

 Reddit is aligned with the fascist left   

I did query(2016 to present date) on people employed by Reddit.  I wanted to see what party they made campaign donations to.  I got 714 hits. Some made multiple donations so their names came up more than once.  Four or five hits were removed because their business had the same name  as Reddit.  No relation.  The end result was that every Reddit employee that was in the 714 hits had all made donations to the democrats.  Zero had made any donations to the republican party.    That’s enough to convince me Reddit is part of the Fascist Left

Reddit Administrators control every subreddit

Reddit employs people to be Administrators(admins).  Each subreddit is ran by moderators(mods).  Mods police their subreddit  and  try remove any content that might be a violation of Reddit’s rules.  Mods are just volunteers.   They are not paid.  Some of Reddit admins exploit and extort the mods.

  • Each  admin has a group of subs they are expected to monitor.  This is what they are paid to do..
  • They have complete control of each subreddit they monitor and have final say on everything.
  • Technically, they are responsible  for all content in their subs..  This includes every upload made by users, every decision made or not made by mods.
  •  Admins are able to ban subreddits, quarantine subreddits,  issue temporary account suspensions  or issue permanent accounts suspensions.
  • Every subreddit has a admin assigned to it.

Registration of certain organizations

Reddit received $300 million from Tencent holdings.  Tencent has many ties  to the Chinese government.   One very obvious one is the the Independent Non-Executive Director of Tencent, Siu Shun Yang.  Yang is a Member of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference(CPPCC) The CPPCC is an organization in the patriotic united front of the Chinese people, an important organ for multiparty cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), and an important means of promoting socialist democracy in China’s political activities.

Here are additional links that provide more information about Tencent and China’s relationship.

Because of Tencent’s connection to the Chinese government and it’s huge investment in Reddit.  Reddit is “subject to foreign control”  Reddit should have registered with the Attorney General.  This is defined in U.S. Code   Title 18. CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE   Part I. CRIMES Chapter 115. TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES  Section 2386.   Registration of certain organizations.

Reddit’s election related crimes

Now that’s it’s understood that Tencent is a co-owner of Reddit and  that Reddit  subject to foreign control.  It should also be noted that  the change in Reddit’s ownership status from being a domestically owned company to a foreign and domestically owned company also places more restrictions on  Reddit in matters involving elections in the USA.  The Federal Elections Commission regulations prohibit foreign nationals from directing, dictating, controlling, or directly or indirectly participating in the decision-making process of any person (such as a corporationlabor organizationpolitical committee, or political organization) with regard to any election-related activities. 

Reddit’s “Ask me anything”(AMA) events that host candidates participating in elections in the U.S.A. caught my attention.   Reddit may not be part of any of the candidates campaigns but,  If during election season a  candidate attends a event where they are the key speaker and discuss and answer questions that are related to their campaign.  it would be considered a “campaign event”.   Every AMA that occurred  and featured a candidate that is actively running for office after Reddit accepted Tencent Holdings $300 million has been a violation of our election laws.

Foreign national as campaign volunteer

Although he or she may not make contributions or expenditures (including advances of personal funds), an individual who is a foreign national may participate in campaign activities as an uncompensated volunteer. In doing so, the volunteer must be careful not to participate in the decision-making process of the campaign. The Federal Election Campaign Act (the Act) and Commission regulations specifically prohibit foreign nationals from participating in the decisions of any person involving election-related activity. For example, a foreign national volunteer may attend committee events and campaign strategy meetings, but may not be involved in the management of the committee.

Definition

The following groups and individuals are considered “foreign nationals” and are subject to the prohibition:

  • Foreign citizens (not including dual citizens of the United States);
  • Immigrants who are not lawfully admitted for permanent residence;
  • Foreign governments;
  • Foreign political parties;
  • Foreign corporations;
  • Foreign associations;
  • Foreign partnerships; and
  • Any other foreign principal, as defined at 22 U.S.C. § 611(b), which includes a foreign organization or “other combination of persons organized under the laws of or having its principal place of business in a foreign country.

How did Reddit violate election laws? Reddit falls under  “foreign national”.  The following would fall under  prohibited behavior by foreign nationals  related to campaign funding and campaign events.

Reddit and it’s admin’s have full control the AMA’s.  They control all context of the event.  They decide what comments, submissions or questions that are acceptable.  They have their rules people have to abide by.  They have the ability to remove anything they want. 

What should Reddit have done different?

 It’s one thing to host an event.  It’s a different thing when they administer and moderate the event.  That’s their crime, administrating and moderating the events.  What they should have done was host the event and let the speaker and campaign administer and moderate the details, comments, questions and rules.

Having foreign investors really isn’t what changes things for Reddit.   It’s the amount in dollars that changes things.  You don’t receive a 300 million dollars and tell the investor  “now go away, we got this”.  The investor is going to want to part of how that money is spent.

Reddit has committed election crimes and will continue breaking the law until the Federal Election Commission(FEC) steps in and shuts them down.

Reddit is a propaganda generating, fascist left website.   It is perhaps the most hateful, bigoted, racist website on the internet.  This is not because of it’s users.  Most of the negativity, hate, election crime activity comes from Reddit admins.  They are the promoters and pushers.  Reddit needs quit being so political.  They have double standards when it comes to enforcing their rules.  Often users receive a harsher punishment for rule violations if they are conservatives.  Punishment decisions  based on persons political preference  is ……lame.

If they continue  this behavior It’s entirely possible that they will do one or all of the following: implode, lose every penny in lawsuits or end up in prison.  What more can you expect from the armpit of the internet.

Final thoughts

*Foreign nationals, companies, governments have been influencing our elections for years.  The path they take is by making large investments in American companies, like Reddit.   Also, they may buy or open a subsidiary  company based in the U.S.A.. There’s more they have to do.   These are 2 examples  This is where more focus should directed when looking for foreign influence….Investment  Election  Influence. DP

*I would also spend some time looking at politicians and upper level government employees with duel citizenship. DP.

*Reddit is jam packed with shady behavior.  Definitely needs some  attention from some  badge packing 3 letter agency of the United States government.

With all that being said.  I have to explain to myself why I still visit Reddit, almost daily, during the slow times of the year.

*Foreign influence in our elections unfortunate reality.  So much so that a person can spend a lifetime writing about it.  It’s almost to the point to where it is easier to find than not finding it.  I barely scratched the surface of the problem.  I mention a couple  a couple of key points.  Fact checked but included a couple person comments that are obvious.  Please share your thoughts in  the comments. “

Respectfully, Deplorable Patriot

There are thousands of individuals that volunteer their time to help make the world a better place to live.  They don’t want money, fame or power.  They won’t sell you a tee shirt or a book about Qanon.  They don’t want your “likes or follows”  Anons only want to leave a world behind that’s a little bit better than when they arrived here.  These are the true heroes of modern times.”

Thank you for this information-dense post. I knew almost nothing about Reddit as I wasn’t interested. But as patriots we have to be interested; the price of liberty is eternal vigilance. My sense is that Russian influence in our elections is minimal and Chinese influence is massive. And Israel influences elections by controlling highly-compromised politicians, on “both” sides. Any pol who doesn’t support the Zionist agenda doesn’t get elected and more often than not they don’t even get nominated. And any who actively oppose the zio/globalists commit political suicide by doing so, with very few exceptions

Thank you, DP, for your always well-researched posts. Given Tencent’s connection to the Chinese government and it’s huge investment in Reddit, Reddit certainly should be registered with the Attorney General as a foreign agent. The question then is why isn’t it?

Here’s how to contact AG William Barr: https://www.justice.gov/contact-us

Well, let’s see there is the wall-to-wall Israel First Jewish power orgs getting money from Israel and foreign interests. AIPAC, ADL, JDL etc. They should all be registered as agencies of a foreign government

So true. Chinese foreign influence is nothing compared to Israel. But then, neither our elected politicians nor the media consider Israeli influence to be “foreign”. Any politician who points that out is immediately denounced and vilified as “anti-Semitic”.

Chinese influence is increasing, the country is crawling with Chinese agents abetted by traitorous rats like the Clintons. Bernie Sanders lived in China and thinks it’s utopia. Pols and the media don’t consider Israeli influence to be foreign, they regard the US as an Israeli colony. China and Israel have mutual and converging interests re: taking the US down
