‘Brig Gen Joel Harding’: NATO’s Teen Porn Addict and Troll King Extraordinaire – Part II

There was a time when Russians had a healthy yet grudging respect for the United States. No more. Not with trolls like these upholding the US Constitution and their brutal, relentless non-stop cyber and telephonic stalking

This article is the second of a 3 part investigation done specially for RI. See Part 1 here.

  • As a recent lawsuit filed in a Virginia court reveals, Joel Harding seems hopelessly addicted to teen pornography from “former Soviet-bloc countries”
  • Keeping close tabs on Russian women in social networks and cyber-stalking some of them also takes up much of Harding’s Information Operations time and budget allocation.
  • Harding’s peer trolls at LinkedIn, including US Department of Commerce officials, ostensibly countering "Russian propaganda", appear equally addicted to porn.

To understand ‘Brig Gen’ Joel Harding’s real-world, you need to understand his psyche. It’s on the level of “max Star-trek”, requiring a psychiatric evaluation usually reserved for children with “developmental disorders” or adolescent psychopathology.

From his Captain Kirk chair, Brig Gen Harding commands and controls a small army of pathological trolls sharing a folie à plusieurs. The plethora of shared delusions is too great to be enumerated here, but the characters, who seem to be trolling 24/7 seem to have a collective persecution complex. All claim to be ex-intelligence officers for the US Army, the CIA, or some other clandestine outfit, if not real pro-Ukrainian activists.One can only deduce that they are being paid to troll 24/7; they are working out of a mental asylum; or they are working toward early release from prison.

Their melodramatic sense of self-importance and injury is nicely captured by the following solemn declaration from one of Brig Gen Harding’s fellow trolls: “I took an oath to ‘support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that I will bear true faith and allegiance to same,’ and I will continue to do so.” The “enemies, foreign and domestic” here is a figment of their collective paranoia and their stunted psychological development. Besides, didn’t Samuel Johnson warn us almost three centuries ago that “patriotism was the last refuge of the scoundrel?”

How 24/7 trolling, making a complete ass out of your society is supposed to “uphold and defend” the US constitution is beyond the realm of reason. As a remarkable example, a certain Jason C. Groves, was depicted as a U.S. Department of Commerce official by Kseniya Kirillova, a rising star in the trolling world. Kirillova is allegedly a Russian national and describes herself on her Euromaidan blog as “an expert of the Center for Army (sic), conversion (sic), and disarmament studies (sic) and the Free Russia foundation” (sic).

Needless to say, if Jason C. Groves really exists, the only “enemies, foreign and domestic” he has successfully neutralized were real-time investors to the US economy. Screenshots of his endless verbal diarrhea would make handy digressions during commercial negotiations, both foreign and domestic.

Grove’s lunatic ravings on LinkedIn are matched by another obsessive maniac, Charles Leven, the bane and inquisitor-general of retired US intelligence officials.Leven’s enemies, far more domestic than foreign, include those who were familiar with the article referring to a Soviet defector agent allegations regarding his pilferage of CIA funds meant for another ex-Soviet defector.This former senior CIA intelligence officer and self-styled “military equivalent of a three-star (US Army) General”, has elevated trolling to a new psychopathological art-form. The psychiatric community probably needs a new term to describe this madness. How about the Harding-Leven Syndrome? Or the Ziggy Stardust Syndrome?

These whackos are symptomatic of the progressive erosion of faith in the US government and its credibility among citizens both domestic and foreign. There was a time when we Russians had a healthy yet grudging respect for the United States. No more. With trolls like these upholding their Constitution, homo sapiens, both domestic and foreign, need only be aware of their brutal, relentless non-stop cyber and telephonic stalking.  

Here’s a snapshot of what this particular “US Department of Commerce official” is up to most of the time:

Below is another sexually-explicit outburst from the same Jason C. Groves. One wonders whether the US Department of Commerce insisted on including child pornography copyrights as part of  the TTIP. Otherwise, why bother hiring someone like Groves? The reader will appreciate why complaints to the Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) went unaddressed for years. These upright US officials were inadvertently upholding Russia’s interests by sheer stupidity, against “enemies, both domestic and foreign.” With trolls like these, Russia really doesn’t need a global army of fictitious Putinbots.

Such classy rhetorical outbursts like the one above may explain why even former members of the US intelligence and diplomatic communities are getting disgusted with what is happening to their country. Unbeknownst to many, a more troubling explanation of the abundance of opportunities available to Harding’s troll platoon is that they may be part of a wider online community of pornography addicts and profiteers; one where their “patriotism” a quid pro quo to avoid prosecution.

It so happens that our “former senior US military intelligence officer” or “Brigadier General” was sued recently for copyright infringement of Internet-distributed pornography  (Case No. 1:16-cv-00384-AJT-TCB) in the US District Court for the eastern district of Virginia, Alexandria division. The plaintiff, Malibu Media LLC, is seeking damages from the defendant, a certain Joel Harding who uncannily shares the same address as our Brigadier General, for the unauthorized downloading, copying and distribution of the plaintiff’s copyrighted pornographic movies. The Plaintiff charges that the “defendant is a habitual and persistent BitTorrent user and copyright infringer.” This is of course natural for an online stalker who trolls through 3,000 blogs to uphold the US Constitution. Most of these blogs are presumably centered on content such as the one below in his one-stop centre for “information warfare” patsies and imposters.

Is this how former senior US military officers while away their time? As the court files in Virginia reveal, our dear “Brig Gen” Harding seems hopelessly addicted to teen pornography from “former Soviet-bloc countries, such as the “Czech Republic, Slovakia, Russia, Hungary, and Romania.” Notice that the defendant, Joel Harding, scrupulously omitted to mention Ukraine in the defendant’s affidavit. Yet, it is post-coup Ukraine that supplies an overwhelming majority of “Eastern European” teen porn models today, contributing to a surge in HIV infections. The rates are reportedly so cheap now that even Ukrainian MPs are known to watch pornographic movies during parliamentary sessions. Why bother with the affairs of state when Kiev’s policies are decided by Victoria Nuland in Washington.

Anyway, Harding’s teen porn activities were supposedly a cover for hush-hush counter-espionage and information warfare of the highest order. Harding took the plaintiff’s allegations like a true soldier in order not to blow his clandestine-covert mission. Instead of claiming “Putin did it” or “Russia framed me”, this time the defendant claimed that he merely “acted in good faith as an innocent infringer under Section 504 of the Copyright Act and without any intent to infringe Plaintiff’s work.”

One can also sympathize with what Harding desires and what he has been stuck with right now. The photo below is explanatory.

A network of pornographers would be able to explain the 24/7/365 trolling contract outsourced as part of an off-the-books US government program; where ecstatic eruptions of patriotism accompany each ripple of a more perverse variety.  This explains the profusion of pornographic references and content in their LinkedIn diatribes. Their obsessive stalking is  eerily similar to those of clinically-certified perverts.

But pornography is connected to another anti-social phenomenon relevant to Harding’s case, mainly Nazism. After all, the American white supremacist David Duke himself once resorted to peddling anonymous sexual advice to raise funds for his “patriotic” activity.The tendency to accuse another race or nationality over something one is actually guilty of is typical of porn-obsessed neo-Nazis.

So, when Harding and his crew accuse Russia of being guilty of whatever their sick mind conjures, think of the bridge between Nazism and pornography that they frequently cross.

In the next and final part, we explore the Nazi end of the bridge.
