Meet the Wikimedia Foundation’s regime-change operative CEO

Post by hyatt » Tue Jun 16, 2020 12:38 pm

The Grayzone calls out Katherine Maher as a CIA operative.
a degree in Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies

interned at the bank Goldman Sachs, as well as the Council on Foreign Relations and Eurasia Group

Maher moved on to a job at London’s HSBC bank

the National Democratic Institute (NDI), which was created and financed directly by the US government

the World Bank

In October 2012, in the early stages of the proxy war in Syria, Maher tweeted that she was planning a trip to Gaziantep, a Turkish city near the Syrian border that became the main hub for the Western-backed opposition.
The authors Ben Norton and Max Blumenthal undermine their report by complaining that Wikipedia has banned websites that they like, the Iranian-influenced Mint Press and the terrorist war propaganda Electronic Intifada. They also gloss over one very important piece of information.
Maher and her associates partnered with an influential technology non-profit organization, Meedan
To understand the significance of this relationship, you need to have read a book.

The Islamization of Knowledge, by Dr. Abdulhamid Abusulayman
The present dualism in Muslim education, its bifurcation into an Islamic and a secular system, must be removed and abolished once and for all. The two systems must be united and integrated, and the emergent system must be infused with the spirit of Islam and must function as an integral part of its ideological program...

The educational system must be endowed with a mission, and that mission must be none other than that of imparting Islamic vision and cultivating the will to realize it on the largest scale.
Abdulhamid Abusulayman was a member of the International Institute of Islamic Thought which was raided by the Customs Department because it was funded by Sulaiman Abdul Aziz al-Rajhi, one of the names on Osama bin Laden's Golden Chain list of financiers. The IIIT and its affiliates were therefore known as the SAAR Network, and also the Safa Group after one of their front companies.

Abdulhamid's daughter Muna AbuSulayman is a Member of the Steering Committee of the Meedan Project. Muna is also the secretary general of the Alwaleed bin Talal Foundation which manages the donations of the Saudi prince who is an investor in Twitter, and who may have funded 9/11.

Another member of Meedan is Adnan Hassan of Mecasa Advisors.
Mr. Hassan served as a senior executive of the World Bank Group in Washington, D.C., at various times over a 22 year period from 1991-2013, and worked closely with the 9th president, James Wolfensohn. He also served for 3 terms on the Board of Directors, as a special advisor, especially overseeing the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the world's leading emerging market investor.

Mr. Hassan worked with Mr. John Pickering, at the law firm of Wilmer, Cutler and Pickering in Washington, D.C. and briefly at Citibank in NYC.
Wilmer, Cutler, and Pickering, since renamed WilmerHale, was the law firm that represented one obscure Twine game developer named Zoe Quinn. It may be a coincidence.

WilmerHale is also the law firm of Aimen Nabi Mir who headed the youth wing of the Islamic Society of North America. The ISNA was co-founded by Mahboob Khan whose son Suhail Khan was head of external affairs for Microsoft which was running two programs of note. The first of these programs was Execution Labs which included personal friends of Zoe Quinn such as Phil Fish, which is another coincidence.

The other notable Microsoft project is the Social Computing Symposium which included WMF board member Clay Shirky, Twitter administrator Del Harvey, and Global Voices member Dina Mehta. Joi Ito, the brother of WMF board member Mimi Ito, is also a member of Global Voices along with his additional jobs as a board member of the New York Times and Sony. This shows that they know each other, and Microsoft has them on hand if it has a marketing problem.

WMF board members Clay Shirky and Esra’a Al Shafei are part of the Meta-Activism Project which also includes WMF board member Ethan Zuckerman. Also on the project are David Faris, the author of It's Time to Fight Dirty: How Democrats Can Build a Lasting Majority in American Politics; Hardy Merriman, advance planner for Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign for the New York U.S. Senate seat; and Patrick Meier, Director of Social Innovation at the Qatar Computer Research Institute.

And when people on the internet disagreed with the conduct and quality of work of two personal friends of theirs, these well-connected Wikipedians wrote a false article and waited for citogenesis to set in, banned everyone who tried to keep it neutral, planted disinformation in the New York Times to support their narrative, and had QCRI scan Twitter to gather the identities of everyone talking about it. And they had their friends inside Twitter ban anyone who was gaining influence.

This was all to protect the reputations of a couple of Democratic Party campaign staff so that no one could be seen to have a negative opinion of them. And it was done on behalf of the United States government through the State Department's Civil Society 2.0 project whose partner Personal Democracy Media gave awards to the Wikipedians who falsified the article. And when people reported this state censorship of social media to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, they were reporting it to Hillary Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta. All that it accomplished was to paint targets on every whistleblower and online rights activist.

A presentation by Civil Society 2.0 director Alec Ross exposes the kind of people they are:
He told them that “The Dictator’s Handbook” made it clear, that created chaos was the perfect situation in which to achieve their goal and that was put on the screen in bold capital red letters – POWER.
This might give insight into why Wikipedia's power admins act the way that they do. Of course, they say that there is no cabal and they deny ever communicating with one another offsite. However, they are organized through a Meta-Activism Project. They have a CEO who may have helped found ISIS. And they are closely related to a project for "the Islamization of Knowledge".

thanks, this is hilarious....

(I apologize for messing up the links in yr post, it's too easy with this idiot forum setup to edit another user's post accidentally. And there's no way to disable or restrict it. Tried to fix what I could.)

Once again: in this declining empire of dirt, it really doesn't matter who is running Congress and the WH, Democrat or GOP. They absolutely hate "troublemakers" and whistleblowers. Just like Wikipedia.

You know when a journalist has pissed off the Wiki-Nits with his criticisms of Israel: when his article is controlled by one guy, and has also been fiddled by pro-Israel cranks like Avaya1 and PlotSpoiler. Plus their regular opponents Malik and Nishidani.

https://xtools.wmflabs.org/articleinfo/ ... Blumenthal

His website The Grayzone is "not considered to be reliable".

Apology accepted. Fortunately, it was not difficult to restore the links. It is important to have supporting evidence for serious claims such as these.

Thanks for fixing the links, I forgot how many there were.

It remains to be seen if the Grayzone posts will have ANY impact outside of AN/I and the ever-pathetic "spam blacklist". Apart from some assorted Reddit posts, it's been ignored so far.

You just KNOW the IRC channels are on fire this week. Probably plotting how to take revenge on Blumenthal. Don't be surprised if his article is AFDed.

Hi, sorry I was going to send a PM, but it's disabled - would it be possible for a mod to re-approve my thread on a new Wikipedia fork? I made a minor edit to it, and not it's not longer viewable; thanks.
