Palantir worked with Cambridge Analytica on the Facebook data: Whistleblower

Palantir worked on the Facebook data that was acquired by Cambridge Analytica, whistleblower Christopher Wylie tells members of U.K. Parliament.

Check this out. These are no fucking jokes.

Everyone remembers the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and how the mainstream media tried to show how the Trump campaign spied on Facebook users.

Beyond the fact that user profiling for targetted ads, on the Internet, is a legal activity that dates decades back, and that EVERYONE uses – that’s how you get your shoes ads, in exchange for all your activity records, this is what cookies are for, for those that still don’t get it – beyond all that, there are a lot of powerful pieces of information, that you can find if you research a little, and that the idiots thinking they get the truth from their TVs will never get.

Here they are.

* Palantir is a data mining company – just like Cambridge Analytica – based in Sillicon Valley – you know, the place where all the miracle, hundreds of billion dollars worth, “basement startups” like Microsoft, Apple, Google, Uber – another independent startup that spread up like a wild fire across the globe, in a few years, without any obvious competitional reason, promoted by the mainstream worldwide – just like all the rest of the independent miracles – and universal beneficiary of inexplicable operational and financial regulation exemptions in all jurisdictions, compared to all other, normal, private taxi companies. The only differences Uber presents to other cab companies are, across the board, competitional disadvantages – inability to use cash, the impossbility to use taxi stops, the absence of call centers, drivers without background checks or licenses, the absence of special, publci transportation insurance, and every single trip recorded, with the personal data of every user, along with the times, stops, etc.. within a personal car sharing system. We all know how the removal of cash, recording all personal data and activity, and car sharing/pooling, as opposed to car owning, are stated intended implements of the Leftist NWO, but I digress.

* Among Palantir’s clients were the NSA, and FBI. The company itself I’ve seen reported as being backed by the CIA.

* Palantir was co-founded by billionaire Peter Thiel, who owns Paypal – a chairman of which has been, until recently, Elon Musk (Tesla, Space X) – and also stakes in… Facebook. Facebook is the platform Cambridge Analytica worked on.

* Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix was introduced to Palantir by Sophie Schmidt, the daughter of former Google CEO Eric Schmidt.

* Eric Schmidt himself has established a company which carried on the exact same task for Hillary Clinton, after having done the same for Barraq Hussein. The had of Google himslef – the one that records all your searches, provides the results that you take as news, that own the operating systems of the vast majority of all smartphones in the the world – Android – and claims to be politically objective – but about all this, in a separate post.

* Before the 2016 US elections, these are all Obama’s FBI, NSA, and CIA. I seriously doubt it that they set out to help Trump win.

* Several people from Palantir moved to work at Cambridge Analytica, reportedly at Christopher Wylie’s behest (the whistleblower).

* Wylie, himself, who said that he dreamed of turning CA into “NSA’s wet dream”, is a gay, hair dyed, army uniform wearing, vegan guy, with a resentful, cynical attitude, that fits the Leftist “liberal” profile to a tee. We all know how fond Liberals are of Trump.

I find it very hard to believe that these people decided to go against their convictions, or job descriptions, to help Donald Trump win, against the establishment, and then, all of a sudden, had the revelation that they were working against their conscience, which they were unaware of, until then, and blew the whsitle.

* Another great coincidence – I told you how much I believe in coincidences – is that Donald Trump’s campaign declined using the data from CA, shortly after hiring them, which the mainstream media doesn’t say, preferring to use RNC data instead.

The whstile blowing happened soon after.

So, these are the facts. That you will never hear in the mainstream. You draw your own conclusions.

BBC, tech giants will fight fake news with an ‘early warning system’

Tech companies know disinformation remains a major threat, and they’re forming an alliance with a media giant to help fight the online spread of falsehoods. The BBC has partnered with Facebook, Google and Twitter on a strategy to fight fake news and other disinformation campaigns. The effort will include an “early warning system” that lets organizations tell each other when they find false content that “threatens human life or disrupts democracy.” Ideally, this helps companies quickly neuter disinformation before it has much of a chance to spread.

The plan also involves a joint media education campaign, shared learning (with a focus on elections) and voting information. More details are coming “at a later date,” the BBC said.

The timing of the collaboration likely isn’t a coincidence. Internet giants know that the 2020 US presidential election is fast approaching, and they’re already working with intelligence agencies to tackle disinformation and security risks. The companies don’t want any risk of repeating the missteps from 2016, and that means forging pacts with anyone that can further their goals. While the BBC clearly isn’t based in the US, its work could be useful for fighting election meddling in the country on top of any help it can offer abroad.

2019 the year of blockchain

On the first day of this year’s DC Blockchain Summit in Washington, D.C., concern that a heavy-handed approach from the federal government may stifle blockchain innovation within the u. s. was lessened by the regulators themselves, who told attendees that they often support permitting the technology to flourish.

That message was bolstered on day 2 of the conference, when U.S. Representative Tom emmer (R-Minnesota), a lawmaker who has taken on blockchain as a difficulty on capitol hill. Emmer, who co-chairs the legislative assembly Blockchain Caucus, expected that 2019 “stands to be the year of blockchain, the year we separate hype from reality, and begin harnessing blockchain in the right-use cases to lower costs and increase efficiency,” he told attendees on March seven.
But he conjointly stressed the requirement for coordinated government oversight. “Congress has a clear role: we must insure that regulation is simple and precise,” Emmer said. “If a patchwork of regulations emerges, the industry will suffer, and prove government to be ineffective. This confusion will beyond question result in a lot of regulation, which is able to solely stifle the innovation and potential application of the technology.”

The financial stakes were highlighted throughout the conference once it absolutely was noted that there’s $130 billion in price presently being keep in public blockchain networks, and that ten percent of the world’s gross domestic product is predicted to be stored by 2025.

Emmer counseled the Chamber of Digital Commerce for releasing its National Action plan for Blockchain, that necessitate a pro-growth restrictive approach to developing blockchain technology within the U.S. The document specifically mentions however the technology is already being applied in supply chain networks for following food safety.

“The National Action plan also provides a required need clear regulation before enforcement. although regulators of blockchain and cryptocurrency have been considerably restrained and have allowed innovation during this area to flourish, we’re presently operating beneath ‘regulation by enforcement.’ Regulators should offer clear rules of the road to make sure that even the tiniest start-up with a superb plan will become a serious enterprise.”

Emmer said he’s doing his half to hurry the expansion of blockchain within the U.S. through his Blockchain regulatory Certainty Act, a bill he introduced in January. The legislation ensures that blockchain developers that never take charge of client funds don’t have to register as a cash transmitter within the states in which they operate.

“Money transmitter laws were enacted to ensure the protection of the buyer entrusting another entity with their funds so as to transmit them. If no funds are being entrusted to a different, it ought to make sure that these rules don’t apply,” he said

Decentralised YouTube, finally

DTube, as you might have guessed is the decentralized answer to YouTube. The app looks similar to the familiar video site, but there are a few key differences. Content creators can upload videos and have the opportunity to earn cryptocurrency.

The app is censorship resistant, claiming that only the users can censor content through the power of upvotes and downvotes. There are no ads and creators don’t have to worry about algorithms prioritizing popular content over new posts.

We browsed around, finding that most of the content is about crypto and blockchain topics. Granted, that’s probably because DTube isn’t exactly widely publicized on mainstream internet publications or social networks.
