Another Trump Coup Plot Front Opens - Cambridge Analytica

http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/378978-senate-judiciary-dem-calls-on-zuckerberg-to-testify-before-committee



Like most socialist propaganda, the mix of lies and half-truths mirror the objectives.


Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) on Saturday called on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee following reports that a data firm took Facebook users' private information for President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

"Facebook breach: This is a major breach that must be investigated. It’s clear these platforms can’t police themselves. I've called for more transparency & accountability for online political ads. They say 'trust us.' Mark Zuckerberg needs to testify before Senate Judiciary," Klobuchar, a member of the committee, wrote on Twitter.

Her comment came in response to the news that Cambridge Analytica, the data firm used by the Trump campaign, obtained the private information of more than 50 million people without their permission for campaign uses.

It was also reported that senior members of Cambridge Analytica met with Russian business executives ahead of the 2016 campaign.

Facebook suspended the group on Friday for not fully deleting all of the data it had obtained.

Klobuchar also said that Cambridge Analytica taking data on Facebook users is further justification for regulating technology companies via her Honest Ads Act, introduced in late 2017. The bill would hold internet platforms like Facebook to similar political ad disclosure standards as radio, TV and print outlets.


Honest political ads!   ::laughonfloor::  From shizzle like Clinton and the rest of these progs?!   ::hysterical::

As ALWAYS, it is about control.  Facebook isn't radical leftist enough or rabid enough about censoring free speech of non-progs...no, they need to be regulated by the state to ensure full compliance and control of the statists.  You have your orders Zucker, bend over and obey your masters!

Mock tears for "privacy" rights after the Trump campaign were brazenly denied theirs and while Hillary's open private server packed with government secrets was available to every friend and foe to harvest!  All the while honest LIES were spewing out of Democrat pol's and campaigns and dutifully disseminated by the Democrat-Media Complex...the very essence of progressive democrat "honesty"!  And invoking "Russia" into the meme in another pathetic attempt to give life to legs long ago palsied by a deafening lack of evidence!

There is only one response to this latest attempt to usurp power -



Time to crush the coup plotters into oblivion!
Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*

Facebook for Trump?   What a joke.   Facebook and its main rival Twitter are so anti-Trump it makes your teeth hurt.

Facebook likes money more than it hates Trump.

A barely post-adolescent guy named Christopher Wylie has a way with data and social media.  He got hooked up w/ Steve Bannon who subsequently hired him in 2016.  Wylie put up a few of those "Find Out Stuff About Yourself" surveys on Facebook.  Bannon paid for them.  The collected data on some 230 million people(!) and used that data to help the Trump campaign.

If something embarasses the left they need to punish by launching an harassment committee investigation.

They had the guy who oversaw the operation at Cambridge Analytica (accent on the ANAL in Analytica,  'cause the guy is obviously gay) on some news show today.   A 20-something with dyed pinkish red hair,  he only came forward with it now because of a sudden attack of SJW guilt,  apparently. 
From what I could gather,  neither the Trump campaign nor Facebook did anything illegal or even unethical.  It just "looks bad",  I reckon,  at least in the eyes of the left.
Wylie was very effective in using social media in the campaign,  so much so,  some have said his efforts were responsible for the victory.  I don't doubt his being behind this--its just too damn good for him not to be. 
But,  I'm not going to expect too much in the way of praise from the FNMSM or left;  not like they heaped upon the '08 Obozo campaign for their "pioneering" efforts at social media and internet use in campaigning;  even to the point of illegality in the way they set up their campaign donations by credit card to be untraceable,  so they could illegally collect foreign donations.

I'm about the least knowledgeable person on all this social media crap,  so don't take anything I say about it as if coming from some authority:  "I'm just a caveman." 

As I understood it,  it was really only 60 million initially but those 60 million also linked to everyone on their friends lists.  That's where they get the 230 million. 

I didn't quite catch how they were "tricked" into making their personal data available to CA,  or even if that was how it was done.  I always thought the crap people put on FB was publicly available anyway.  It seemed to me they were more upset at the "collection" of that data and on so many--you know,  like Google,  Microsoft,  NSA,  every damn internet actor out there,  etc.  does on a regular basis to every damn body that goes on the internet.  It's only a problem when Trump does it...and did it with great success.   ::hysterical::

Suck on it,  libs:  ::mooning::

Thinking back,  I believe I remember them saying CA would ask them to take a quiz or some such,  in order to get an idea as to their political notions,  so they could be more accurately targeted with the right "propaganda" message or ad. 
Whether they did the same for the 60 mils' friends or merely extrapolated from the 60 mils answers to their friends,  assuming they would be like minded,  I can't say,  but I would guess the latter. 

Whichever the case,  it was a brilliant strategy for campaigning on social media.   That's why the left is so butthurt about it now,  'cause they didn't think of it first...the friggin' idiots.   ::smallestviolin::

I wouldn't be surprised,  if it's possible to employ this on other social media platforms,  to see some of them now come out and declare the same was pulled on them as well--a social media #metoo movement.   ::hysterical::

I recall in 2008 the MSM gushing over how the Obama campaign used big data gleaned from all their databases and that is why they won over the backwards GOP.  Now if Trump used big data in 2016 he is evil incarnate.  I would like to see a comparison of how Clinton and Trump used big data in the last election.

More sloppy writing from the MSM.
How would ANYONE using FB data ask users' permission? Has anyone asked you?
Doesn't FB sell the data to people who pay for it?
How is data posted on FB 'private'?

They've been doing this for at least few years.  What's sad is that we haven't figured out a way to call them on it and make it stick 'cause there's no way we're going to match them in hypocrisy.
I dunno.  Call 'em hypodimocrit. Hypo-dimo-crit

Still kinda lame.

You get asked all the time.  They send out some click-bait saying something like What is your dream car?  Before it tells you it asks if it can check all of your data.  If you don't agree you'll never find out what your dream car is.  (You really want to, don't you?  Just click the box.)

Facebook: failure or fraud?
It's fascinating to see that after all the ways that Big Social is spying on everyone, what has the media in an uproar is the belated realization that a sword can always cut two ways. They didn't mind when they knew it was the Obama, Hillary, and the SJW-converged corporations that were data-mining, but now that they realize the Right - and in particular, Steve Bannon and Donald Trump - can and have done exactly the same thing, they suddenly have reservations about the wisdom of letting organizations have access to that level of data.

It's called, "targeted advertizing",  in this casy an "attractive" ad was placed on facebook, you fill out a questionaire, get a hokey answer, and the
"questioner" now knows your facebook name, and from there can get your friends names.  Off facebook it happens when you go to different sites, amazon, walmart, bjs, etc.  you go to the site, they get the visiting ip.  Next you know, when you open your browser, oooooH!  look at the ads.

Facebook is in SERIOUS trouble
It turns out that the Obama campaign did the same thing that Cambridge Analytica did... only with Facebook's full knowledge and approval:

Ex-Obama Campaign Director Drops Bombshell Claim on Facebook: 'They Were on Our Side'

Ex-Obama Campaign Director: It's 'Unfair' Facebook Let Us 'Ingest Entire Social Network of US'
JASON HOWERTON | MAR 19, 2018 | 2:55 PM
...
A former Obama campaign official lit up the internet on Monday after claiming that Facebook allowed them to mine massive amounts of Facebook data because “they were on our side.”

Now, comments she made in 2015 are shining even more light on exactly how extensive the data mining effort was — and how it may have given Democrats an “unfair” data advantage going forward.

Carol Davidsen, former director of integration and media analytics for Obama for America, said the Obama campaign was able to “ingest the entire social network” in the United States.

“Where this gets complicated is, that freaked Facebook out, right? So they shut off the feature,” she added. “Well, the Republicans never built an app to do that. So the data is out there, you can’t take it back, right? So Democrats have this information.”

But Republicans do not have that information and they will not be able to gain access to it, she said.

Looks like Facebook stock isn't doing too well,  lost about 6 points today, more in the after hours market.   
Apparently Zuckerman anticipated and sold off about 20 million dollars late last week.  Facebook security
chief resigned today.
