Billionaire Who Bankrolled Faulty App in Iowa Democrat Caucus Also Funded Sabotage Ops in 2017 Alabama Senate Race

This Silicon Valley technocrat is notorious for funding shady political operations.

Big League Politics has reported about Acronym, the political organization that is behind Shadow Inc., the tech firm that made the faulty app that caused massive delays in reporting the Democrat results of the Iowa caucus.

Acronym is closely tied to South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg and the failed campaign of Hillary Clinton, and it is funded by Silicon Valley oligarch Reid Hoffman. Hoffman has a history of funding shady social media operations, which makes it incomprehensible that a firm funded by him would be tasked with securing electoral integrity for the all-important Iowa caucus.

Hoffman, who founded the popular networking portal LinkedIn, has frequently funded campaigns to manipulate voters using technology. As the Democrats accuse the Russians of running disinfo ops to influence elections, one of their richest backers actually does it, gets caught doing it, receives with no repercussions, and is given an opportunity to do it yet again. Hoffman’s top henchman is Dmitri Mehlhorn, who used to promote privatization of schools before he joined the dark side.

Hoffman has also funded and promoted the political ambitions of Acronym CEO Tara McGowan, who is married to a Buttigieg campaign senior advisor.

She was once called “a weapon of a woman whose innovative tactics make her critically important to the Democratic Party,” but that weapon seemingly blew up in their faces in Iowa, and she is now under incredible scrutiny for her connections.

Before the Iowa caucus, Hoffman’s most infamous political dirty trick was his funding of Project Birmingham. This project used social media to spread disinformation on social media to damage the campaign of U.S. senate candidate Judge Roy Moore, who was hammered with false accusations that ended up costing him the seat in the Dec. 2017 special election.

The Washington Post reported Hoffman’s involvement in Project Birmingham in Jan. 2019 long after the damage was done:

Project Birmingham got its funding from Internet billionaire Reid Hoffman, who emerged as a leading underwriter of Democratic causes after the 2016 election … Hoffman gave $750,000 to a progressive technology start-up called American Engagement Technologies — founded by Mikey Dickerson, a former Obama administration official … This person said Dickerson used $100,000 of that to hire New Knowledge, a Texas-based social media research firm, to work in Alabama in support of Jones during the special election in December 2017.

The Project Birmingham campaign enlisted thousands of bots to follow Judge Moore on social media in order to capitalize on hysteria about the Russians and tie it to Moore’s campaign. It was done to “radicalize Democrats, suppress unpersuadable Republicans (“hard Rs”) and faction moderate Republicans by advocating for write-in candidates,” according to the Project Birmingham Debrief that outlined the Hoffman-backed black op.

“This fraud and interference was evident during the 2017 U.S. senate election when tens of thousands of Russian bots were programmed to follow the Republican candidate on Twitter to make it appear as if his campaign was being backed by the Russians,” Alabama Republican State Rep. Andrew Sorrell said to Big League Politics about Project Birmingham.

Hoffman was forced to accept his culpability in the electoral interference operation in Dec. 2018 and apologize for his organization’s devious acts.

“I find the tactics that have been recently reported highly disturbing. For that reason, I am embarrassed by my failure to track AET – the organization I did support – more diligently as it made its own decisions to perhaps fund projects that I would reject,” he said.

Hoffman’s shenanigans were unfortunately successful in Alabama in 2017, and they may have been successful in Iowa as well if it ends up that turning the caucus into a grueling nightmare was the plan all along.

New Emails Show Hunter Biden and Associates Floated ‘Formal Meetings With Dad’ to Woo Business Partners

This is shameless cronyism.

Published

on

New Hunter Biden emails obtained by The National Pulse have shown that the dope-and-hooker-loving rapscallion used the possibility of “formal meetings with dad” to help secure billion-dollar deals.

A June 2011 email thread titled “Engagement” showed Biden business associate Sean Conlon making a remark that seemed to indicate how Hunter worked intimately with the Obama/Biden White House. Conlon wrote: “we need to get these guys to an event or something where they get to just formally meet your Dad. For follow on they can talk to Chief of Staff.”

The full text of Conlon’s email reads as follows:

So we have engagement letter if they get other 10 bonds they have a face value of 10b. While it is far fetched Devon said he talked to his professor and these get traded. We get 10% in fees. We need to get these guys to an event or something where they get to just formally meet your Dad. For follow on they can talk to Chief of Staff. Let me know how soon we can do that. V brief. If Nagi get that done we get more bonds to move. Regards your hard working partner in Positano! Sean

Conlon issued this as a response to the following email from Hunter Biden: “what do we need to do moving forward.” According to other emails, each bond referenced by Conlon is worth over $2.1 billion.

Hunter Biden’s confidant and frequent business partner Devon Archer would later respond that he was “in” on the “interesting” plan even though he found it “difficult to imagine working out.”

It has yet to be determined whether anything concrete emerged from these talks, but it shows how Joe Biden was at the center of Hunter’s business dealings.

Big League Politics has reported on the testimony of whistleblower Tony Bobulinski, a former Biden associate who is now publicly airing the dirty laundry of his former acquaintances:

A former Naval officer and Hunter Biden business associate revealed shocking claims about Joe Biden’s involvement with Biden family Chinese business dealings in a press conference before Thursday’s presidential debate…

Watch the full Bobulinski press conference here.

The Navy veteran recounted speaking with Hunter Biden about extensive Chinese business dealings during his meetings with the Vice President’s son…

Bobulinski ultimately claims to have agreed with Hunter Biden to become a CEO of a company that would be called “Sinohawk.” The entity was allegedly being arranged by Hunter and James Biden, the former Vice President’s brother.

Big League Politics will continue reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop-from-hell leaks as they emerge.
