Shortly before the 2016 election, at a crucial moment in time, Austin began
Operation Burnback. With the advent of the release of a trove of incriminating emails through Julian Assange's Wikileaks, Austin began the Psychological Operation (PsyOp) of placing hand-selected, and particularly damning emails, of Hillary's Clinton's nefarious activities into targeted regions of the nation via social media information loops. In this initial truth-telling PsyOp, Austin managed to depress the enthusiasm in those targeted areas that could have swayed the election for Hillary Clinton. "Quarterbacking" through social media, Austin began building a global network of hacker-misfits with hearts of gold and ready to "dig" into any target connected to the corruption in government.
