I received an email from a new veteran friend. He sent me an article that was misattributed to Marshall Kamena. It was really written by Evan Sayet. Marshall was a Democratic Mayor as the email suggests but he did not write the article.

Evan wrote a great and compelling argument for President Trump’s way of doing things. Click here to read Evan’s article. It is a  fantastic read and rings true.

The question comes to my mind; Why do people misattribute emails? I have a theory. When someone writes something as compelling as Evan Sayet the leftists cannot deny the truth of it. I believe the left is the one who misattributes these compelling stories. They do this so they can later claim it was bogus.

The story was not bogus but by misattributing it they can cast a shadow of doubt over the entire story. If you cannot get the author or his political affiliation correct how much else is false? Nevermind the impact of what is being said. The misattribution becomes the story rather than the story itself.

I believe intentional misattribution is part of the lefts Psychological Operations. I encourage all my fellow veterans and Americans to have a basic understanding of PsyOps. Below is a one paragraph definition that may help you spot it in the media and around the web.

Psychological operations (PSYOP) are planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, and objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.
