    Exclusive: Leaked Docs Expose China’s Secret Internet Troll Ops Amid CCP Virus Pandemic!

    Taiwan’s intelligence agency says they have detected trolls from mainland china trying to stir up the spat between Taiwan and the WHO. Leaked documents obtained by NTD show what china’s internet army looks like and how they operate. Beijing has a history of spreading disinformation via its so-called 50-cent army. The groups of internet users got their name for getting paid 50 cents per post by the Chinese regime. They often troll through websites and social media inside and outside of China and help push the Chinese regime’s narrative. For China, this political task is no less serious than any other of the regime's operations. These photos obtained by NTD show at a northern town in China , officials training commanders who regulate the 50 cent army. The Chinese regime ramped up its propaganda machine since the ccp virus outbreak. According to internal training materials accompanying the photos, the propaganda task force not only involves the police force, but also the justice system --both under the direction of the Communist Party’s Political and Legal Affairs Commission. The internet-army commander is no easy job. Principles the army need to follow include: “Make sure the narrative is unified and the same.” “Make sure the comments are political, authoritative, timely, come out as a group, with human elements, and in accordance with societal trends. The commentators need to understand 'the language used by common people' and make use of 'official languages.'” And “Whether or not the commentator is able to complete their monthly portion of tasks is directly related to their monthly rewards and punishments.” The scale of China’s internet army is formidable. State Media reported in 2013 that there were at least more than 2 million “internet monitors” at that time. That equals the active personnel in China’s People Liberation Army, the largest military in the world. And a Twitter influencer in China affairs recently tweeted a leaked document, showing the regime is planning to recruit over 10,000,000 more “internet volunteers.” Penny Zhou, NTD NEWS.

    They don't even need to pay American's to do this, as we all fight about everything anyway... Sad but true.

    Yes John good post. China define all future plans for next 50 years, in every aspect life. Make everything clear in official documents if you dig and see. China trying to ensure survival with bigger population who need resources for motherland survival. Old cycle repeating. Political cycles always. China and India just doing what always do. No real change, just technology.

    Well yes and no Most of the latest technologies including the internet, computers and its substitutes, Google and google patents, surveillance technologies AND strategies, methodologies, security measures etc. originated in the US and were either assimilated or copied to and by China and used to their dare ends by them,
    similarly the same technologies were passed and adopted by India though in completely different manner but influenced by global trends.

    That’s nowhere near to say that those guys are incapable of developing entirely own sourced level of technologies but historically speaking they did not have time to do that during the last century while the “West” was rather prosperous and advanced while they’ve been struggling with basics.

    Guess it’s complicated. The same people were subjugated and humiliated by many of the European Empires for centuries. So once technologies were offered or for sale,
    they had but one option to get on with it or stay behind.

    If I can speak for India where I lived for more than 12 years on and off, its mindset and policies were always very liberal, people do not automatically agree with anything coming from outside as necessarily benevolent( they kind of always suspect there is a trick in it long before the trick comes to obvious), least they always agree with gov policies.
    Technologies sneak in with global trends. Once in, the smart computer guys learn to operate them really fast because it does not require specific language skills rather than thinking in numbers.

    Internet in itself is the most exploitable in nature than most “real commodities”.

    It’s free by being “owned” by third, fourth etc. parties. No matter what you post where, it is upon benevolent agreement between a person and number of providers, domain and forum hosts. If even one of them fails in the chain, all you’ve invested to this effort can be altered, manipulated or disappeared - sometimes without us noticing it.

    Again, if you look to who dominates the world of security and guards its borders the most nowadays it is still the US, not China or India , China competes and tries to domineer but it can only successfully drill its own citizens, no one else other than playing little tricks.

    Saying so I’m aware of China having “underground arsenal” of technologies they do not admit in open sight or sell them to public.
    But DARPA has too.

    So the equation goes like this: whoever have the most advanced technologies will domineer global trends unless they fall on their own sword, so to say and so far,
    everything in the area is originally US patents 😀
    Sorry if I sound ridiculous but it’s a real equation.


    Not saying there is nothing to fear from China and how they operate internally.

    As Denise said perhaps, we do the same only in different manner. While in China subversion is being detected and destroyed almost immediately, in our “freedom democracies” we only collect data, cast predictions based on those data and adjust laws so that people are controllable without them ever noticing it.

    Mass media supply information and disinformation, equally and they are well payed for it.

    India is the largest living democracy in the world and internet is being subtly controlled but in open, rather transparent and ethical manner.
    It’s a tool and huge advantage, educational tool as well, not “a problem”.

    What seems rather inadequate to me through out the last decade though are security measures. It’s never been that bad before and getting on peoples minds as an oppressive element hard to live with.
    It’s unreal but police presence became the “new norm” due to numbers of people who could cause potential “threat” to each other which is often rather disgraceful and ridiculous considering the same people always travelled( India is famous for its pilgrimages to thousands and millions of its temples), gathered, without plans, following their intuitions and freedoms. India is freedom loving country.

    Since 9/11 and so forth, Muslims turned to be a “problem”. Much of the problem is in “angered blood” I believe, where it’s always been.

    But it often starts at the endless security checks, sometimes at temple doors for example.

    I can’t speak for those peoples hatred and revolt, no way. But I feel the hurt and humiliation equally if all of us have to pass through a scanner, have your bag checked etc. each time you wish to visit any bigger temple, monastery or tube station.
    In Delhi, entering any metro/tube station, railway station and other places means passing through airport level security check.

    I know there’s about 1% chance of terrorist attack.

    If so: the terrorists can attack people on bus, in grocery store or just at any other public place that isn’t heavily guarded.

    For normal people who are fortunately in majority it’s a nuisance,
    it’s feeling completely out of ordinary
    and it should not be that way.


    Tongue in cheek, don’t give up on India. Maybe we will find out how to throw the scanners to the garbage and return to our rice and tea pads and forget about the rest. I think we would already if it was not for “global trends” and making foreigners feel safe when they visit.
    Since India depends on tourism economically it all is here to make Americans and Europeans feel better. Don’t you.

    Americans are well trained. That's why we get democracy instead of communism.

    Hi there ExomatriTV, thanks for bringing alternative stuff as always



    Here I'll follow a recent approach I've adopted in order to cope with the overabundance of information as a result of stay at home madness. Instead of wasting energy on the information, focus on the source. It's really more practical and saves a lot of time.

    So this video is actually from a news network based in NY, USA called NTD. In their about youtube page they state (highlights mine)

    Quote At NTD we believe the integrity of our world hinges on the accurate and truthful spread of information. We dedicate ourselves to providing the truth, no matter the cost, and shedding light on major issues the world deserves to know. We cover the stories that others don’t. Our unbiased news provides critical information and insight. Our focused, exclusive analyses cut through the complicated political landscape and provide a clear perspective. We hold ourselves responsible to society by steering clear of sensationalism and producing news with the utmost integrity.

    The truth they provide is that allegedly the Taiwanese Intelligence Agency/Bureau claims that they have proof of these activities on the Chinese part. Taking into account the ever-going spats between the Chinese and Taiwanese governments I wouldn't trust intel leaked by either site, but even a quick look at their official site reveals that there's not even an official announcement. I strongly believe that these tactics are being employed by the Chinese as for every other state. Has anyone tried to support the BDS movement online without being slated from the US based internet paid shills?


    Looking at NTD's content it consists of 25% videos praising Trump, 25% videos videos vilifying China and 50% various state official press releases. Given that the press releases are obligatory boring stuff they have to post, their real content consists exclusively of two largely polarizing concepts namely fake hope (trump is a savior) and fear (china is evil and coming to get us) Like literally no other content "shedding light on major issues the world deserves to know".


    Furthermore by filtering out the press briefings all that is left are videos with largely biased content and over-sensationalized bait clicking titles.


    We are experiencing an extraordinary crisis and historically speaking crises are resolved with large scale wars. I see China being increasingly demonized and I wouldn't want to see them becoming the new cold war target. It also doesn't help much the Chinese people perpetually showing them that they're hopeless against an almighty communist regime. I'd rather have them side by side learning from them how to design efficient environmentally friendly megacities and transportation systems and teach them how to defend themselves against tyranny.


    As for the USA calling out other regimes, I'll leave you to contemplate with my favorite politician's speech ...

    AI engines as source points for troll and agenda pushing armies, out of the military and black op side of things, in the USA.

    More expensive and difficult to get off the ground than 50 cent armies, but ultimately more effective and steerable in the minor and the major.

    In the meantime, have armies of posters and narrative controllers as a stopgap system.

    These are known things.

    Without a doubt. My comment was a bit tongue in cheek.
