Facebook Caught Profiling American Traitors – Russia and Putin Blamed!

by Phil Butler, … with New Eastern Outlook, Moscow

Phil Butler

[ Editor’s Note: Butler picks up on an old VT topic, the behind-the-scenes dirty dancing between intelligence agencies and social media platforms that, in return for using their service for free, get permission to collect all the data needed to create a massive profiling database that someone might want to use.

Some of the suspects would be the people who long ago realized that supercomputers and artificial intelligence, working seamlessly with each other, could take “crowd control” to a level beyond the imagination.

But there was a catch. That would require a huge amount of historical preference data on people and some way to stay current with breaking events to be able to predict what people would do in various situations.

A Google executive went overboard at a conference on this and gave up the ghost, saying that they would soon be able know what their users were going to do before they did.

VT quickly put two and two together – being incurably suspicious folks – and quickly saw the potential that the major money-losing major platforms, like YouTube and Facebook, were created specifically to provide the data streams necessary for the artificial intelligence technology to use.

The biggest joke is their continuing claim that it was all set up purposely for advertising – but we know better. The major intelligence agencies could not, and would not, allow such data to be compiled without their having the ability to use it.

Are we a more sophisticated plantation animal to “them”?

Suspiciously, no major investigative journalism has been done by mainstream media on what is one of the most important privacy security-breach conspiracies in the history of mankind.

The Intel agencies, including Israel, have their hooks deep in these data streams, by either enticing them to hand it over, and making it attractive to do so, or by stealing it from them, probably with their knowledge so they would have deniability.


Don’t hold your breath waiting for Congress or any parliaments to put minders inside all of these companies, like receivers in a bankruptcy case, to constantly monitor any abuse of their data collection.

This of course would be fought tooth-and-nail by those involved, but it is a story that must eventually come out, even as the vested interests team up to make sure that it does notJim W. Dean ]

In this report, I want to accomplish two goals. First, I want to come out and admit that I often wonder what it is like to be totally devoid of intelligence and good character and to possess only one paramount and defining trace of good – to be lucky as hell. Second, I want to share with you a story that proves once and for all that we are doomed to an eventual cataclysmic meltdown.

They really do want to know what we are going to do before we do it

Five years now I’ve spent the better part of my day’s gathering, analyzing, and processing news and information about today’s lunatic geopolitical situation.

And every day of my stint trying to make sense of the mess we’re in, I’ve considered the real enemy – the dotard, atheist, nincompoop on the other end of the globalist narrative who’s been struck by the magic wand of fate. The god of luck, you see, is the real enemy of humankind.

Look at Facebook’s Mark Elliot Zuckerberg, for instance. He and his college chums Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes were mystically catapulted into billionaire-land on the power of a cheesy website decked out in dull blue that basically emulated MySpace.

I was there testing and analyzing the horde of competitors to Facebook, so I am more aware than most of the degree of “luck” these Harvard boys were stricken by. But the warped Disneyland that is the Silicon Valley epic is another story. Today Facebook has been caught in more skullduggery.

When I read this morning that Zuckerberg’s social media giant was caught labeling tens of thousands ofUS users as persons “interested in treason,” I was only surprised a Dutch Radio station broke the story first. For those of you who have not learned of this, the Danish public-service broadcaster Denmark’s Radio (DR) reported discovering that Facebook was attaching a “treason” tag via its automatic algorithm to identify selected users.

To make matters worse, once the Danish investigators called the social network out, Zuckerberg’s PR people went to work cooking up the ridiculous excuse in the history of social media spying, “We did it for advertisers!”

Well, since Zuckerberg was probably put in place by the deep state and the NSA in the first place, I guess the social network’s biggest advertiser needs all the user data it can get. This must include McCarthyism in its latest form – tagging any of us who do not agree with the hostile takeover of the whole world. But hold on, the latest Facebook spying story gets even more ridiculous, read on.

Caught red-handed targeting users for watchful eyes, Facebook’s brilliant PR team slams on the realism brakes and reverts to pure fantasy. According to the story from DR, the network then claimed 65,000 Russians might be in danger because it was the Kremlin using the tags to unmask traitors! Confused yet?

The Danes went so far as to conjure up their own social media expert Benjamin Rud Elberth, to explain how those pesky Russians did it again. Elberth, who makes his living doing digital campaigns for the same politicians who try and enslave us all, frames the Russians by chiming in about Facebook targeting practices. Duh.

Anybody can build a database for minute targeting using Facebook or any other digital media channel. The problem is not countries or company’s using Facebook data, but the internal application of tagging for nefarious reasons. As a digital PR and marketing expert (legit one), I can make sure your customer gets your message this afternoon. What I cannot do is manually insert a variable that ferrets out people I consider traitors or terrorists etc.

This “labeling” by Facebook did not just start the other day. The social network had been churning all the user data since the beginning back in 2004. Anybody who knows these Silicon Valley amoralists knows for certain that cheating is seen as just part of the game, a fun game of conniving and using the good old switcheroo.

Again, this aspect of the digital age is a subject for another book. We are better served today asking how a story in Denmark about Facebook labeling people as “treasonous” turned into a defense for Zuckerberg and whoever stands behind Facebook spying.

Enter another Denmark company called CSIS Security Group, and anti e-crime service run by another DR cited expert, Peter Kruse. DR seems fascinated in CSIS discoveries, and now the radio station plants the notion Nigerian officials may be targeting homosexuals using Facebook tagging using Kruse as an expert again??? Yeah, you read that correctly.

What makes the Danish “investigative” story most interesting (suspect) for me is the fact the radio station turns to Danish SEO experts to lend credibility to the notion Putin and Russia are hunting traitors via Facebook!

As the former editor of Search Engine Journal and an expert in search since Google became popular, I can tell you that the tag “SEO” attached to anybody’s name brings to mind digital mafia. Citing Obsidian Digital’s Halfdan Timm puts a real black hat on the Danish news cowboys attempting to implicate Russia in all this.

Maybe Obsidian is one of the handfuls of white hat SEO companies, and maybe Putin had Elvis killed too, but I doubt it. However sensational (and useful for traffic) the Danes think Facebook revelations are these days, the capability to target people based on their prior actions is a no-brainer. Before I go on, let me quote from a study from the Psychometrics Centre, University of Cambridge:

“We show that a wide variety of people’s personal attributes, ranging from sexual orientation to intelligence, can be automatically and accurately inferred using their Facebook Likes. The similarity between Facebook Likes and other widespread kinds of digital records, such as browsing histories, search queries, or purchase histories suggests that the potential to reveal users’ attributes is unlikely to be limited to Likes.”

So to break this down, the story here is not about national intelligence agencies using every scrap of intelligence they can get to protect their countries. The breaking story is the probability a publicly owned U.S. company is collaborating with the intelligence community covertly, in order to abuse the rights to privacy of not just tens of millions of Americans, but billions of people worldwide.

But the Danish spy experts and radio announcers were not so much concerned with Facebook lawbreaking and skullduggery as with implicating those Ruskies. I quote from the RT article:

“When Danish journalists stumbled upon this awkward Facebook practice, the first thing they thought about was Russia. The DR piece on the issue does not mention any nation except for the Russians, even though Facebook admitted that the tagging practice was worldwide. However, they took the trouble of counting exactly how many Russians using Facebook were labeled as “interested in treason” only to warn readers that as many as some 65,000 people could be subjected to “persecution” by Russian security services as a result of the social media giant’s callous actions.”

Once again, we are left in a conundrum. There’s still no definitive answer to questions like “Who’s gaming whom?” Who’s getting paid? Which one is the bad guy? Who is telling the truth? All these and more questions are these days obscured by the noise and the cover-ups. Facebook working with the Deep State is lost in the propaganda set to label “Putin evil” above all else.

It’s amazing how a breaking story about Facebook being caught profiling its users made no mention of the fact Facebook and other technology giants work with the NSA and CIA. Instead, would be experts from Copenhagen are linked in to insist Vladimir Putin stands behind. Right.

As a passing note, does anybody know how to spell the Russian word for “treason?” Gee, I wonder why Facebook did not tag treasonous thinkers in all languages? Sorry, I am just thinking out loud.

    • Twitter Disavows Shadow Banning, But Facts Say Otherwise

      A Vice exclusive story on Wednesday caught Twitter red-handed engaging in the practice of shadow banning prominent GOP politicians, removing their profiles from drop-down searches. Since then, the social media platform has struggled to provide an adequate explanation for the phenomenon.
      “We do not shadowban,” a Twitter spokesperson told Sputnik Wednesday. However, Twitter employees were secretly filmed earlier this year explicitly bragging about doing just that.

  1. an example of obscure correlation of data: The Duck Boat tragedy on Table Rock Lake yesterday claiming 17 victims, happened within a 24 hour difference in the 260 day calendar, as the 1999 Arkansas Duck Boat incident which is dominating comparisons and claimed 13 lives.
    Table Rock – July 19 2018 – 12 Ajmaq, Trecena of Kan
    Arkansas – May 1, 1999 – 13 Noj, Trecena of Kan
    The commonality is shape, and result. geographically within the same vector. at the same time
    This happens every day. And the reason the simultaneous Sandy Hook / Chenpeng incidents were not more widely compared and talked about, is “it is that which must not be discussed”. We must discuss it. The computer guys need to know this stuff if they want integrity in the machine. send me an email.

    • Also, years ago, while studying calendrics, I was informed Yale was hiding information. At that point, I already knew, the information of calendrics was the bane and death knell of religion. But, if folks watch the documentary. “Three Identical Strangers”. you get a whiff of how far the study went, how much was found out, and then now, as we see what is happening in cyber, know how important it is, to get up to speed.
      This didn’t start yesterday, the stories go back centuries. The internet is crack to this study and the implications are ,… surprising ,…..no matter what vector or level of knowledge you come from.

  2. facebook just another example of idiot humans thinking they are so important to others that they all need pages and pages of self provided info….in the hope that others will make them an online “friend”…which carries no meaning at all.
    they all have something to sell….using fakery that would make a used car salesman blush.

    doctored pictures of huge asses on the women and photo shopped muscles even steroids cant give you for the guys….and everyone is selling tee-shirts and workout programs…..all junk…to those lazy and ignorant enough who actually believe they are making real friends…so willing to argue and defend /trash anyone attempting to point out the truth of the con.

    i saw it all developing during the bush white house …carl rove(still MASSIVELY involved)…writing his daily talking points emails…sent to fox news where you were told the info comes from the drudge report…establishing for the dummies who get ALL their info from fox news…the perfect circle of propaganda…..just vastly improved by the likes of Facebook..etc.

    the real point being that even the people understanding it all..will never stop joining never stop giving their info…never stop being STUPID…no matter how bad it is.

  3. Neither a hack nor a break is necessary when they simply selling all data worldwide. So the fairy tale about “Hacks” or “breaks are revealed

  4. put two and two together, join to googoo/youtuuu/Faceshit/NSA/CIA and artificial intelligence technology and add the new U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory newest supercomputer Summit the world’s “most powerful and smartest scientific supercomputer” and start to shake….

  5. Facebook to allow holocaust denial , because to cut it off, loses tons of wanted data.
    Hey Bob, we got this stream of dialogue from Heroin traffickers, should we disallow ? um, nope
    Predictive anything from data of anything is highly addictive to humans. To throw the predictive capability into a room full of blood thirsty capitalists, is itself, a highly predictable event as to the outcome.
    Each day, more correlations are made, and more bizarre reference points to form the correlates. Each epiphany is worth gold, and it becomes an all consuming desire that blots out the sun. I’m not an astrologer, but I have known a few. One was a recluse, very few friends, no phone, just piles of books. If I wanted to go see him, I had to go over, and knock on the basement window. One day I went after not seeing him for months (and we seldom talked about astrology) he was there, waiting, proud as a peacock, with my chart on the table next to his, and they both had little colored pins in places, and he said, see that pin, that’s today at 1pm. It is 1;10 and you are ten minutes late. He had predicted my arrival several days in advance to within 10 minutes.

    • The first thing facebook asks for is date of birth. If people only knew how much information that alone gives to data collection for predictive purposes they would puke. It is because of this, that the use of it, is kept from the public by nefarious and benevolent folks both. We are entering uncharted waters, and all I can say is, this is going to hurt. The only questions remaining are how bad and what part.
      The ancient arts could locate a person, with high precision, after years of being gone. We do have free will, but the extent of that cannot be determined unless, a person knows where their thoughts are from. Most are external sources, the periodic waves. The old calendars do not have any stars on them. That would be ridiculous. They have shapes.

    • That’s not the thought. If two people get the same idea, like hunger, they diverge into preference based on memory,. Intuition cannot conjure anything in a human mind without the mind having reference.
      Interpretation is divergent. The way to study thought is to observe what people produce when they are doing the same thing over and over freely and from a place of self expression. The artists. Most everyone else is behaving from a schedule dictated by the need to secure sustenance. But, if the artists are predictable, then the rest of the group certainly is. The most commonly asked question of any artist, “Where did you get the idea?” The answers are invariably formulated to be palatable to society at large, else lose money.

    • “Where did the thought come from?” This is the oldest science on earth. The changes in patterns are recorded and kept by nearly all cultures. It is a study, that is fed by rocket fuel , by having the internet and massive data. So, if a person says, “Oh I had a dream, ” and we know the day the dream came, then it can be determined if the content is expected or unexpected, using available data. It isn’t perfect, but 90 % of dreams correlate precisely with the changes. This separation from natural time, was administered, forced, and directed, by the religions, so go ask them. The guys at the top of any theological knowledge know this .
      Every architect, painter, sculptor, writer, anyone who follows their dream,. to fruition, invariably produces that which is already recorded. Tesla for instance, born on the day of lightening, and energy from waterfalls. That information is older than 6,000 yrs, probably 50,000

    • Khalid, What you should be asking, is why does the Gregorian calendar start in the middle of winter in disagreement with hundreds of calendars from hundreds of cultures ? Where did they get that particular idea ?
      If we know AI is coming, how can we build integrity into the system ? When the machine get’s to the point where it correlates the data, the choice will be , release it, or use it secretly. To release it would destroy religion and atheism at the same time. So, if you could push a button, to destroy atheism, while simultaneously destroying religious dogma, would you do it ? So far, the decision has always been to use it secretly, … and that continues. It is a dam experiencing stress cracks.
