Exposed ! – The Bearded Blogger Behind The Dirty Tricks Campaigns

Exposed ! – The Bearded Blogger Behind The Dirty Tricks Campaigns

Texas image!

Sarawak Report can reveal that a key orchestrator behind the dirty tricks campaigns that have been waged against Anwar Ibrahim, Gordon Brown and Sarawak Report is a ginger-bearded American blogger named Josh Trevino.

Trevino claims he was a speech-writer for George Bush and he is a founder of the popular Republican blog, Red State.  His outspoken, far-right views have provoked controversy in the US, where he has been striving to make a name for himself via the internet.

Those provocative views are, however, unlikely to appeal to his Malaysian clients in BN, who, nevertheless, have clearly being paying him and his associates to defame their political enemies and boost their own publicity.

“My red hair and pale skin IS my passport!”

Trevino - racial profiling?

For example, many people found Trevino’s tirade against being forced to go through standard border checks particularly obnoxious.   In a series of outbursts on Twitter he proclaimed that the US Border Patrol were “fools” and “bureaucrats” for bothering to look at his papers, because he was white.

He expressed his views with such offensive arrogance that the story provoked nearly 900 angry comments when it was reported in the online Huffington Post.

In his original ‘Tweet’ Trevino pronounced:

“Dear Border Patrol: my red hair and pale skin IS my passport, bureaucrats.”

After criticism from other Twitterers, he later added:

“For the record, kids: that border should be open, open, open. But if you’re going to check documents, don’t be a fool about it.”

Unlike most Malaysians Josh is pale, red-haired and non-Muslim - so he thinks he should not be subjected to border checks.

Rent a blogger ?

The question is are all Trevino’s outbursts his own considered views or are some of them paid for?

Trevino provides lengthy self-profiles on Linked In and other internet sites.  We learn that after a period in the US Military, followed by a stint working in communications for the US Government’s Health and Human Affairs department, he decided to deploy his penchant for political invective onto the internet.

In 2004 he started the blog Red State, which describes itself as “the leading conservative news blog for right of center online activists”.  Red State concentrates on core, anti-liberal ‘tea-party’ issues, but has also gone on to spawn other ‘opinion forming’ web-platforms, in particular New Ledger, which feeds virulent attacks on Anwar Ibrahim and Sarawak Report onto a series of Malaysian websites.

Right of centre... influential voice...

Trevino describes new media as one of his main interests besides political commentary and he promotes himself on twitter and blogs and facebook, as well as online radio and occasional tv shows. He also records himself making ‘diary items’ and interviewing commentators and then puts them up on You Tube or Vimeo.

Minimal web presence. All there is about Trevino's 'strategic communications company'

Besides this, Trevino runs a company with the interesting name of Rogue Strategic Services. It claims to specialise in Political and Corporate Communications Strategies and to provide “cutting edge communications”.

However, strangely for a company specialising in communications and run by such a self-promoting character, Rogue Strategic Services provides just one page about itself on the internet, containing just 8 words and an email address (see right).

According to  Act For Israel (where Trevino serves on the Advisory Board), Rogue Strategic Services has “assisted clients wishing to engage in strategic planning, organizational conversations, political outreach, communications, and new media”.

Trevino has recently achieved a position as Vice President of Communications at the right leaning Texas Public Policy Foundation, however, his involvement with the above organisations and activities are still clearly on-going.

All about Josh - he says he has clients for his savvy web-based services all over the globe

Classic 'liberal-bashing' is the flavour of Red State - something in common with BN?

Given Trevino’s Texas-based right-wing Republican focus, his frequent commenting on the subject of Malaysia and passionate support for the BN government against Anwar Ibrahim and the PR coalition seem unaccountable.  People in Texas are not interested in such matters.

Furthermore, Trevino is a trenchant and single-minded supporter of the State of Israel, of which the Malaysian BN Government is one of the world’s most die hard critics.

So why, time and again, does Josh Trevino come to the defence of ‘moderate’ Malaysia?

Describing himself as “a long-time observer of Malaysian affairs” and editor of the recently defunct blog Malaysia Matters, Trevino is on a mission to portray Malaysia as a Muslim democracy under threat, not from Islamic extremism or the corruption resulting from 50 years of BN rule, but from the PKR liberal opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim, whom he paints as terrorist.

The Islamic threat is a favoured topic on the right wing Red State. Trevino seeks to portray Anwar as a number 1 terrorist!

Trevino has posted recent pro-BN articles attacking Anwar in the Washington Times,  the UK’s Guardian newspaper, and the on-line Huffington Post .  He has also placed articles on the same topic in Red State and New Ledger.  Based on scant evidence, Josh’s constant claim is that Anwar is a Muslim extremist and a Jew-hater, who would turn Malaysia into an Anti-American hotbed of radical islamic terrorism if he won the election!

“It is of paramount importance that both Malaysians and Americans understand the dangerous implications of a Malaysia ruled by Anwar Ibrahim”

[Malaysia Matters, published in Red State 21/08/2010]

Josh Trevino’s campaign in the mainstream media has likewise focused on a clear attempt to portray Anwar as a man who has changed from a well-known liberal, with many friends in the West and a reputation for religious tolerance, into a dangerous threat to freedom and democracy!

Persuading people Anwar has turned from from a liberal to an anti-semite

The barrage of sex accusations that BN have unleashed on Anwar since his near election win in 2008 has also given Trevino and his colleagues plenty of material to accuse Anwar of both deviant homosexuality and deviant behaviour towards women.  However, the only connection between these myriad and contradictory claims is that they seek to discredit the leader of the Malaysian opposition.

Obsession with Anwar - how odd for a blog in Texas!

Sarawak Report therefore puts the question, are any Malaysian BN politicians or their paid agents, clients of Josh Trevino’s Rogue Strategic Services and the political communications strategies that he provides?

Linked in

There is plenty of compelling evidence that the answer is yes.  Trevino’s blog, Red State, claims that its “day to day efforts are led by.. a talented and largely volunteer team of front page contributors”.   Yet Sarawak Report notes that its links with the paid for site New Ledger (hired to run numerous dirty tricks articles about Malaysia) are very extensive.

New Ledger was set up in 2009 by Trevino’s founding partner on Red State and former speechwriter colleague in the Department of Health and Human Services, Ben Domenech ( Domenech had lasted 3 days at the Washington Post before he was fired for plagiarism in 2006).

The other founder of New Ledger is a blogger called Brad Jackson.   Brad Jackson also acts as a ‘senior executive’ at Rogue Strategic Services, the company set up by Trevino to provide “political and corporate communications strategies”  focused on ‘New Media’ expertise.

Josh's senior executive in Rogue Strategic Services, Brad Jackson, set up New Ledger, where he writes articles attacking Anwar Ibrahim and Sarawak Report

The writers on the two blogs, Christopher Badeaux, Brad Jackson, Leon H Wolf, Pejman Yousefzadeh, Ben Domenech and Josh Trevino himself, appear on both sites and they have all written articles about Malaysia supporting BN and attacking Anwar in the period following 2008.

Friends on Facebook and Twitter. Here New Ledger's Rachel Motte, who makes clear she is paid, indicates she is does 'things' for Trevino

These articles have then been ‘bounced’ back into Malaysia via online portals, like Malaysia Watcher or Sarawak Report(s), Bernama and BN supporting newspapers in order to circulate the impression that Anwar is thought badly of in the US and to give credence to the accusations being made.

These connections and the clear agenda being followed by Red State and New Ledger raise serious questions about the integrity of these online sites, which are seeking to be treated as alternative sources of news and opinion for members of the public.  Trevino has successfully used his online platforms in order to gain credibility and access as an ‘opinion former’ to mainstream newspapers and television, where he has carried on promoting these agendas.

Volunteers or paid 'strategic communicators' ?

However, at no point has Trevino, Red State, New Ledger or any of the writers concerned declared any financial interest or sponsorship behind their otherwise unaccountable internet campaign on Malaysia.  Do they seriously expect us to believe they are doing it for free?

Indeed, Mr Trevino refers to his ‘clients’ in his own twitter chats.  Readers of Red State, New Ledger and other Trevino-related blogs have a right to know who those clients are and whether the activities of Rogue Strategic Services relate to any of his copy.

Likewise, supporters of the non-profit Texas Public Policy Foundation and readers of the mainstream media outlets he has targeted on the subject of Malaysia have a right to know too!

Uncomfortable allies or just a clash of clientele?

As we have already pointed out, Josh Trevino is by no means an obvious supporter of the Malaysian world viewpoint.  In particular Trevino is actively and aggressively pro-Israel, a country that the Malaysian BN government bans its citizens from even visiting!  To be exposed as the client of Trevino, given all his other activities and pronouncements, would only be highly embarrassing for BN.

For example, Trevino is on the Advisory Board of Act For Israel, which describes itself as the  “preeminent online activism group for Israel”. In its ‘Manifesto’ Act for Israel states:

Israel’s fights are no longer just on the battlefield. They are on the internet. Every day, tens of thousands of anti-Zionists take their messages of hate and delegitimization to Twitter, Facebook, blogs, You Tube and more.. polarizing the media and the world against Israel.  Act for Israel will turn the tide in Israel’s favour..

…… Our team is comprised of some of the most influential, knowledgeable and passionate pro-Israel forces on the web today. ……. We come together for Israel for one purpose only: to capture the hearts and minds of the world through the power of the web”

Another of Trevino's new media clients? An uncomfortable juxtaposition with Malaysia's BN!

President of Rogue Strategic Services, Josh Trevino

Josh’s web of connections to dirty tricks websites

Equating Muslims with terrorism certainly gains support in US right-wing quarters, but Trevino goes further than most.  At a time when the Malaysian BN Prime Minister Najib Razak was condemning the treatment of the Palestinian mercy flotillas by Israel, Trevino shocked readers of his new media outpourings by suggesting that the Israeli forces were welcome to shoot dead any of the humanitarians involved, including Americans.

Shoot them! - Josh Trevino's attitude towards the mercy ships for Palestine

This was at a time when Najib was giving a hero’s welcome home to the Malaysians who had taken part in the flotilla and come under attack from Israel:

“It was a blatant act of aggression and terrorism, and I would not want to say anything less. I want to say that this can be interpreted as a state form of terrorism. This is an example of what has been done by the Israeli regime.
……..it was a cold-blooded act of killing committed by the commandos on the instruction of the Tel Aviv regime,”
[Najib Razak]

Trevino found his way round this clash of alliances by writing a contorted commentary in the Washington Times , which was then widely circulated in Malaysia.  In it he carefully excused Najib’s remarks by saying that helpful action in Afghanistan and Iran “arguably offsets and supersedes harsh rhetoric”!   On the other hand he lambasted Anwar Ibrahim, saying that his very similar statements were by contrast not excusable and that Americans should start to regard him as an enemy!

The muddled arguments of such articles become far clearer when the reader is aware that the author has a long history of ‘strategic communications’ directed against Anwar and promoting BN’s political leaders.

US Ambassador John Malott - another target of New Ledger

As we have reported, former US Ambassador to Malaysia John Malott, himself a target of these writers (see previous Sarawak Report), has told us:

“Why do these people, who are unknown and not experts on Malaysia suddenly become so interested in one issue, not other countries only Malaysia?  It seems obvious to me they are being paid”[John Malott]

The attack on CNN

Trevino’s agenda became even more blatant when he marshalled his guns against the news group CNN, who had invited Anwar Ibrahim to be interviewed last July.

Positive PR for the Malaysian opposition leader in the United States could clearly not go unchallenged.  Wading onto New Ledger with an outpouring of vintage vituperation, Trevino accused Anwar of buying his airtime on CNN!

“the entire reason Anwar Ibrahim is making this media appearance is that he’s spent all of 2010 attacking Jews. Count the number of times CNN mentions this, that right: zero. The interview in its entirety mentioned the major news about Anwar Ibrahim exactly zero times.
I’ll be blunt: this is what a good rolling of a major media outlet looks like. Whomever Anwar has hired to do his U.S. public relations clearly has solid media contacts, particularly in CNN proper. The charade doesn’t just extend to omitting Anwar’s excursion into Jew-baiting — it permeates the entire piece..”
[josh Trevino, New Ledger July 2010]

The scandalous accusation was taken up widely in the Malaysian media, as had been the intention.  However, Trevino may have been less comfortable with some of the commentary the story provoked from BN politicians, whom he so studiously avoids attacking for the anti-semitism he alleges against Anwar.

UMNO Vice-president Mohd Shafie Apdal’s response was, for example:

“If it is true that Anwar paid for the CNN interview, it shows that he stoop so low to the United States and the Jews… he will do anything to achieve his ambition of becoming the prime minister,”

Trevino could have written a whole diatribe against the anti-semitism and dangerous anti-Americanism contained in such remarks by a senior Malaysian Government figure.  But he chose to remain silent.

The President of Rogue Strategic Services should be wary of making accusations against others over accepting payment to produce comment and media platforms. While CNN convincingly and categorically denied that Anwar had paid them, Trevino is closely associated with just these sorts of dubious activities himself.

    So Taib is receiving some form of help from the dark forces of US politics as represented By one J Trevino. The US has a deep interest in keeping the S.E. Asia area "white" and Taib has been a stalwart who represents capitalists exploitation and plunder of resources here for over 30 years.

    The New World Order Vs Freewill

    I am compelled to write this piece with the hope that we become more aware of what’s happening in our homes, community, state and beyond so that we are better prepared

    for the onslaught of the New World Order and how we should respond to it.

    What do we see when switch on our television, read the newspaper, or listen to the radio? Beamed from across the globe, we are being fed with daily news and images of war crimes,destruction, violence, injustice, prejudice, exodus of refugees, hunger, hostility, oppression, racism, religious intolerance and persecution, violation of human rights, genocides, rapes, drugs, greed, corruption, and deception, …….

    These have become our daily bread and we have been sanitized to accept them as “business as usual”. However, open debates on such matters, by and large, are muted, side-stepped or greeted with scorn. The usual response one gets to hear is, ‘oh, sorry, no time or not interested’, ‘it has nothing to do us’ or ‘it’s happening elsewhere, why should we care?’ to the state of resignation ‘there’s nothing we can do about it’. It’s as if the human mind has been programmed for self-pity, self-defeat and self-denial.

    It’s exactly what the New World Order wants us to be – docile, unquestioning, couch potato, psychologically dependent, and to accept what we see, read or hear as the whole truth . The media professionals are in the business of ‘mind control’ in almost all fields of human activities – advertising, business, entertainment, food, fashion, education, sports…….and the most powerful controllers are the elites or barons of the New World Order.

    Though we live in the 21st Century, the human race cannot yet claim to be ‘free’ because humans ‘seem’ incapable of escaping their imprisoned mind and exercising their freewill. Someone said “Man is born free, but everywhere he’s in chains”. Is this an inescapable fact of life or we mentally programmed to feel and think so?

    The upshot is we need to be able to read between the lines to awaken our minds and allow ourselves to make our judgments in this world. We need to put the pieces of information together and see a whole picture instead of disjointed bits and pieces of the puzzle. As humans, of course, we have the ability of freewill given to us by the Almighty to think for ourselves and arrive at our own conclusions without the ‘noise’and influence of the Media.

    We as people of the globe are entitled to the truth. Don’t let the New World Order take our freedom to think and let our mind become its prisoners. Don’t let our minds be trapped….think beyond the eyes!

    • Miri

      aborium,

      Food for thought post.

      The New World Order isn't new ! The seeds were planted by the Pilgrims when they landed at the Cape Cod in 1620. For goods or ills the Americans have ever since been leaving their footprints all over the world. With her economic strength and military might America could impose its Orders at will and be seen as the protector of the Free World. But the collapse of Soviet Union sent panic to the the military and Langley. Who are we fighting now ? To maintain the military machinery , a different enemy has to be found and a different war has to be fought. The neo- conservatives took over Capitol Hill when George W Bush moved in. The New World Order was redefined, " Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. " The war on terrorism has largely sapped the American confidence ( and arrogance ) and the neo- conservatives are driven underground but there is no sign that the New World Order is dead and buried. Like you said, we are being brain washed by the multi media ( yes, controlled by the neo-con ) not to think for ourselves but to follow like puppets. Bro, we are being watched.

      • aborium

        Bro' yes I know we're being watched that's why we are extra careful not to mention names. Yes the New World Order or its earlier label 'Brave New World' has been around for ages, but then we didn't have the TV and the radio, let alone the Internet as the present day.

        Don't be too paranoid, all comments are padded. Just to read it in between the lines!

    It is very obvious these Josh Trevino is moron red neck bastard and a real sonuvitch who are hired by BN/UMNO upon introduction by APCO. He is on the take from the both side of the coin. He is attacking Najib in the Gaza Flotilla and meanwhile telling the IDF to shoot the participants even if there are American as well.

    It is a shame that the BN/UMNO is hiring these crappy redneck moron SNAFU for the the job to harm their political. They are going all out to destroy the opposition voice by all means and intent, even coming to the extent of a known anti Muslim individual and against the Palestinian Gaza Flotilla even by mimicking the Flotilla are being carried by the Terrorist Big Whale. Is it what the BN/UMNO and Perdana Global Fund stand for, where is your conscience on these matters.

    BN/UMNO is hiring these Redneck is no different franchising the other activities to PERKASA and Pembula as their agent of trouble makers in Malaysia. Stupid and idle BN/UMNO to the core.

    CNN issued a very strongly-worded denial in response to Trevino's claims.

    Now that BN is found out sleeping with the enemy, they are losing credibility by the day. Perception is everything and BN is now perceived to be not only selfish but they are in fact terrorists of the rakyat.

    As for the Americans, you don't really have to worry about outside enemies such as the AlQaida as much as you worry about your own homegrown ones. JT is no much different from the blokes who bombed Oklahoma Tim McVeigh and the deluded ones. Now that's scary isn't it?

        May the be force be with you.

    Now that Mahathir has openly admitted that he was a "dictator" I can feel free to make the same admission. So here it is. Malaysia is a dictatorship. I am the dictator. Democratic freedoms, including the right to demonstrate, do not exist and ketuanan reigns supreme. Disagree and the police will beat you and lock you up without trial. Now you know!

    It's the global scene we're more worried about. The latest is the hand-phone hacking in UK by News of the (new)World (order).

          We all know the power of the media. Printed words are mightier than the swords ! For decades, the political establishment have been cosy up with the Murdoch Press. No political parties could win elections without the support of Murdoch. So much so that The Sun boasted, " The Sun wont won it " for the Tories in the 1992 General Election. Elected politicians kneeled to Murdoch's summons. Such was his great influence that came hubris and this may prove to be his Watergate !

    According to the annual 2011 Small Arms Survey released recently, it was reported a booming private security industry has emerged – triggered mostly by 'terrorist' threats, domestic insurgencies and drug wars. It deploys some 20 million armed personnel worldwide: twice the number of police officers.

    Who are they? Are some already deployed to Malaysia? Are they watching or partaking in Bersih? That's why we say the world is becoming 'dangerous'.

    We seek answers.

      They are private armies dressed up as private securities licenced to hold fire arms by our government to carry out its dirty works against her citizens.

    HIRING OF JOSH TREVINO IS DONE THRU THE ADVICE FROM APCO

    Msian Govt thru the advice of APCO is hiring these foreign red neck faggot KKK sonuvitch to do the talking for them from the foreign land. It would be more cheaper and competence if they are going for a local talent, whereby there is no element of rocket science are involved in what had been written by these red neck in all his release made out everywhere.

    So what is the rationale and justification behind using these red neck Josh Trevino all along. Is it because of his white skin and a red neck origin. If that is the reason, then it just all stale and stink to high heaven. All of his so called specialist work farmed out to his client are nothing more than just all craps, with a cut and paste thing. His knowledge is nothing,but just a red neck mentality and always cross his prejudicial understanding just to fill his empty stomach.

    It is not out of jealousy, but with what he had published were just a pure rubbish and not even fit for a primary school syllabus and what more for a pride and respected client and his opponent. Thereby, the continuous utilization of these red neck moron will be rendering his client into a laughing stock of the sober World at large forever.

      Syabas!, Dato Ambiga and all the partriotic warriors, though against all hells, still manage to shame up the coward and the paranoid UMNO government.

      Dato Ambiga, you are the new darling and the real hero of the rakyat and Nurrul Izzah for the next PM of Malaysia.

    Peh Moh must be having a nice field days and nice sleeps for the last few weeks, since all attention is toward BERSIH 2.0

      Not so, just a short reprieve for Taib. Once we know who the players are on the world stage, we would then be able to see their possible links with players on the local stage. It's a step closer to reading their game better, including their wheeling and dealings. Their common interests are power, control, and money. Nothing stands in their way.

      Importantly, we would then know who our enemies and friends really are, 'cause in this day and age you can't be too sure who's who in the crowd – they wear different masks and some masquerade as NGOs, members of social clubs, or some religious outfits.

      This is not meant to be a scare, but a keen reminder to all of us to make use of our God-given senses to spot the bad wolf before it gobbles up us up in one mouth full!

      Better to be vigilant now than to be sorry later.

        It is as complicated as its may seems, however there must be a complete but a simple solution to this all. 54 years of a single party rule, what do you expect? The real democracy was devised after a few hundred years of trials and errors in the west, but a single party government can bend it in what ever directions they want in according to their own perspective for their self-conveniences and advantages that surely only benefits a small group of people.

        The New World Order is the power of internet. This is the generation of Twitter and Facebook and other scores of independent alternative medias. Unfortunately, we are not even close, since we are only having less than 14 % of our state population with internet access.

      Yessssss, it should be enacted and implemented with immediate effect. But I doubt it very, if it ever take off the ground with the BN/UMNO is still in Power. We need to bring them down by GE13 and it is only then, such will see the light of the day.Hopefully.

    I am also writing to let you understand what a brilliant experience my friend’s daughter went through studying your web site. She realized a lot of pieces, most notably how it is like to possess an amazing teaching mood to let other people completely have an understanding of a variety of complex things. You undoubtedly exceeded her expectations. Thanks for displaying these good, healthy, edifying and even cool guidance on that topic to Gloria.
