Correct the Record is a Hillary-campaign super-pac that is dedicated to “fighting the lies” on the Internet. What it is, is a battalion of paid trolls whose job it is to disrupt, demoralize, and defame any Trump supporters and message boards. They communicate using a secure messaging software called “slack” pictured above.
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. What exactly this means, we’re not sure (the comment at the end of the conversation wasn’t good though). Below are the screen shots and the full transcript of today’s conversation.

ekim [5:52 AM]
set the channel purpose: clean up this mes
brock [5:52 AM]
joined post-debate from an invitation by @ekim
brock [5:53 AM]
go round up the others. i need some coffee.
ekim [5:53 AM]
efink [5:54 AM]
brock [5:54 AM]
good morning to u to fink.
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?
brock [5:56 AM]
i can’t talk. 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.
efink [5:57 AM]
me 2. do i have time for coffee?
brock [5:57 AM]
we’re all gonna need a lot of coffee.
ekim [5:58 AM]
shaw is on his way sir.
i don’t see what’s so bad. She looked really healthy! I thought she did GREAT!
efink [5:59 AM]
she was scoring 3 on AMTS a couple of weeks ago and 22 on mmse. Yeah, whoever that was was normal.
but the telemetry sucks. look at all the snap onlines: we’re losing 100%
romney v obama numbers
ekim [6:01 AM]
but those don’t mean anything
efink [6:01 AM]
it means they’re enthusiastic. organized. if they can swarm a poll whats to stop them swarming a voting booth?
it also creates a counter-nar. the free press will sniff it. we have to stop the bleeding.
ekim [6:01 AM]
efink [6:02 AM]
don’t worry. we have something. GET SHAW OUT OF BED.
i’m going for coffee.
cshaw [6:05 AM]
I see we’re not happy :disappointed:
brock [6:06 AM]
Not at all.
cshaw [6:06 AM]
I read the 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 [6:07 AM]
okay. guys, this is 18-2381 stuff. Got it?
cshaw [6:10 AM]
ekim [6:10 AM]
efink [6:11 AM]
alright. we need to move beyond the disruption scripts and down-voting. 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]
fuck–okay. so the Trump team is an emergent order. thirty million little chan and reddit assholes 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.
Fink–let’s do this. I have a plane to catch.

cshaw [6:16 AM]
i like it! wtf is it??
efink [6:17 AM]
This is manna from heaven, kids.
We have the use of an NSA intrusion package. We are going to find the thought leaders. the meme-generators. the shit-posters. I need a target analysis for reddit, twitter, and the chans by tomorrow 5 PM.
You will monitor, identify, and using the FA software set we have, identify/dox.
cshaw [6:18 AM]
that will dox them??
efink [6:20 AM]
It will man-on-the-side for the anon boards and intercept traffic. We can use that for IP addresses and loading tracking software and magic lantern onto their devices. Once we have them compromised
David? How many do we need?
brock [6:21 AM]
I want 150 from 4chan, whatever you can get from 8. I want 1000 top reddit drivers exposed and I want content analysis for their posts. I want the people who are really driving their narrative.
I need all that in a packet by tomorrow afternoon with lexical analysis, proof of compromise. I want clips of memes. I want to up-vote patterns. All this has to be inside the US too. We can’t use externals.
cshaw [6:23 AM]
It won’t work outside the US?
efink [6:23 AM]
It works fine outside the us you idiot. That’s NSA stuff.
brock [6:24 AM]
WE don’t work outside the US. Do you think this is fucking bean-bag?
We are going to disrupt them before this shit goes any further.
if they don’t have leaders, we’re going to get their thought leaders.
cshaw [6:24 AM]
like pajama boy!
brock [6:25 AM]
I AM NOT N THE MOOD cshaw
cshaw [6:25 AM]
efink [6:26 AM]
just get us the target profiles. Hit the numbers. Give us a matrix for each of them. Okay? PII, influence grid, recent activity, Q-rate. Like that.
You know what to do.
cshaw [6:26 AM]
ekim [6:26 AM]
What are we going to do with that?
brock [6:27 AM]
dof u really want tio fucking know, kim?
ekim [6:27 AM]
brock [6:28 AM]
u better be. I am going to get a plane. You will be up ALL NIGHT. Keep the lab LOCKED. Fink bring in pizza or whatever to keep the kids going.
I am out.
cshaw [6:28 AM]
does it have to be We the Pizza?
efink [6:29 AM]
Brock LIKES WtP. What do you want?
ekim [6:29 AM]
Sushi. Sushi would be nice.
efink [6:30 AM]
what do you think this is, the Trump campaign. We’re getting pizza from We.
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.
cshaw [6:31 AM]
well, they are deplorable. idk. I think we should have done this a long time ago.
efink [6:32 AM]
get working kids. I’ll check back in a couple. Have something for Brock before he hits the ground. k?
ekim [6:33 AM]
I’m sick of We the Pizza.
cshaw [6:33 AM]
ekim [6:33 AM]
Rich Seth is the recently deceased (murdered) whistle-blower who gave information to Wikileaks. FOXACID is NSA software designed to compromise enemy systems. We think ‘word of god’ and ‘heaven’ are code for Obama and the White House.
If you know anyone who might be a target of this initiative, please let them know to be careful.
