Editor’s note:  With Google turning over their material as well, every email from GMail, every search, even every errand run with a phone in your pocket with Google Maps secretly monitoring, every move we made targeted us for a massive and totally engineered for each and everyone of us, psychological warfare campaign that may kill us all.

Trump is going to start a nuclear war.  That is his only job.

“Whistleblower describes how firm linked to former Trump adviser Steve Bannon compiled user data to target American voters”

The data analytics firm that worked with Donald Trump’s election team and the winning Brexit campaign harvested millions of Facebook profiles of US voters, in the tech giant’s biggest ever data breach, and used them to build a powerful software program to predict and influence choices at the ballot box.

A whistleblower has revealed to the Observer how Cambridge Analytica – a company owned by the hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer, and headed at the time by Trump’s key adviser Steve Bannon – used personal information taken without authorisation in early 2014 to build a system that could profile individual US voters, in order to target them with personalised political advertisements.

Christopher Wylie, who worked with an academic at Cambridge University to obtain the data, told the Observer: “We exploited Facebook to harvest millions of people’s profiles. And built models to exploit what we knew about them and target their inner demons. That was the basis that the entire company was built on.”

Documents seen by the Observer, and confirmed by a Facebook statement, show that by late 2015 the company had found out that information had been harvested on an unprecedented scale.

  1. Good whistle blower. There it is folks. Linkedin also, and the way to find out as an individual is to control the data set you feed them. It has to be small to be affirmative. Then you will see, although it has been curbed slightly, that suggestions to connect with people, may be derived from an obscure e-mail you sent or received back in the dial-up days, and no other connection exists.
    Facebook and Google are the nosiest neighbors you could possibly dream up connected to your party line. I grew up with a party line, you could be on the phone, and the neighbor or any person on your party line could just pick up and listen. The modern version, is a vacuum with a sorter and analyzer feeding a data base.

    • We have gotten very complacent with our “long term’ allies. They are not acting in our best interest, and they do not respect our sovereignty. This is not surprising from Britain. Both Britain and Israel, do not make things with their hands. They rely on opportunistic plundering to make their living. It is amazing we have to learn this all over again, as our grandfathers spared no ink in passing down the very solid advice with tons of proof.
      See, we the American dream, do not need Britain or Israel or Saudi Arabia. They very much need us.
      In fact, when their grip starts to loosen, the squealing can be heard around the globe. We have reentered an abusive relationship like a forlorn lover afraid to be alone, and disillusioned by the weak apologies.
