  • Brad Parscale: Trump Won After Facebook Employees Taught 2016 Campaign Workers To Micro-Target Ads

    Brad Parscale told 60 Minutes that Facebook employees worked right alongside the Trump 2016 campaign workers to help President Donald Trump win the presidency. Parscale is Trump’s digital director – and as seen in the below 60 Minutes video, Brad called Facebook the “500-pound gorilla,” taking up 80 percent of the digital budget. Meanwhile, people on Facebook and Twitter are calling it troubling that Parscale spoke of micro-targeted Facebook ads that helped Trump win the presidency. Especially troubling to folks unfamiliar with social media strategizing is the notion that Facebook employees were “embedded” in the Trump 2016 campaign, according to...

    San Antonio digital strategist Brad Parscale denied that the work he did on President Donald Trump’s campaign was intertwined “in any way shape or form” with alleged Russian operatives to use social media to influence the election. “Absolutely not,” Parscale said on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Tuesday. He emphasized that the Trump campaign got the data it used here in America. “In the United States, we actually have access to some of the best data, and the data we used on this campaign directly came from the Republican National Committee, and what they did after the 2012...

    State attorneys general will launch one of the largest bipartisan, multi-state antitrust investigations into Facebook and Google on Monday. State attorneys general spanning across dozens of states will announce an antitrust investigation into Google and Facebook, and other technology companies at the Supreme Court at 2:00 p.m. ET Monday. The investigation will investigate whether America’s largest technology companies have stifled competition, restricted access, and harmed consumers. A Wall Street Journal report suggested that New York Attorney General Letitia James will lead the investigation into Facebook, while Texas Attorney General Attorneys Ken Paxton will lead the investigation into Google. James said...

    Facebook is censoring pro-life group Live Action, claiming that its content is "false news" and using two doctors that perform abortions as fact-checkers.The social media giant marked Live Action as “false” for promoting in a video the perspective that abortion is "never medically necessary," a view, the group stressed, that is held by thousands of OB-GYNs across the globe.Live Action said last week it was notified that their page's reach will be reduced for the "repeated sharing of false news."The third-party mechanism that Facebook used last week to determine the group's content was "inaccurate" relied upon the viewpoints of Robyn...

    SHANGHAI — More than a decade ago, Chinese physicist Pan Jian-Wei returned home from Europe to help oversee research into some of the most important technology of the 21st century. At a conference in Shanghai this summer, Pan and his team offered a rare peek at the work he described as a “revolution.” They spoke of the hacking-resistant communications networks they are building across China, the sensors they are designing to see through smog and around corners, and the prototype computers that may someday smash the computational power of any existing machine. All the gear is based on quantum technology...

    FULL TITLE: Exclusive–Hilarie Gamm: Amazon, Google Reap 15 Percent Discount to Hire Foreigners over American Graduates The federal government is helping giant multinational corporations such as Amazon and Google to reap a 15 percent discount every time foreign workers are hired over American college graduates, says Hilarie Gamm, author of Billions Lost: The American Tech Crisis and The Road Map to Change and co-founder of the American Workers Coalition. During an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight, Gamm explained how the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program provides a tax incentive, and thus a subsidy paid for by U.S. taxpayers, for corporations to...

(snip) “The IRS has returned my tax return to me this year after I apparently answered one of the questions incorrectly… In response to the question, ‘Do you have anyone dependent on you?’ I wrote: ‘9.5 million illegal immigrants, 1.1 million crack heads, 3.4 million unemployable scroungers, 80,000 criminals in over 85 prisons plus 650 idiots in Washington’. The IRS stated the answer I gave was ‘unacceptable!’,” the meme stated. (snip) He also posted a meme mocking Sen. Elizabeth Warren...

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Friday asked a federal appeals court to reconsider a case in which President Trump was told he could not legally b lock people on Twitter from seeing his tweets. The DOJ’s Friday court filing requests a rehearing from the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, which has not yet said whether it will hear the case, CNN reported. In the filing, the DOJ argued that Trump — whose personal Twitter account is not owned by the federal government and which was used by Trump for years prior to taking office — should be able to...

    The Hong Kong anti-government protests have now turned into a flashpoint in an information war between China and the US, after American social media giants Twitter and Facebook struck back at what they said was a state-backed disinformation campaign focused on events in the city. Both companies announced on Monday that they had suspended accounts on their platforms they alleged were part of a Chinese government-backed, coordinated campaign. Twitter said the accounts were meant “to sow political discord in Hong Kong”. The San Francisco-based company also announced, in a separate statement, that it would no longer accept advertising dollars from...

    Washington (CNN Business)A draft executive order from the White House could put the Federal Communications Commission in charge of shaping how Facebook (FB), Twitter (TWTR) and other large tech companies curate what appears on their websites, according to multiple people familiar with the matter. The draft order, a summary of which was obtained by CNN, calls for the FCC to develop new regulations clarifying how and when the law protects social media websites when they decide to remove or suppress content on their platforms. Although still in its early stages and subject to change, the Trump administration's draft order also calls for the Federal Trade Commission...
  • “Flyover Culture” Falls to Facebook’s Partisan Crackdown

    With conservative freedom of speech under attack across social media platforms like YouTube, Twitter, and Pinterest, social media giant Facebook has begun directly attacking conservative groups, individuals, and content under the guise of shielding users from false content and hate speech. Carole Quattro Levine, founder of the Facebook-based conservative media site “Flyover Culture,” is among the latest, but not nearly the first victim of Facebook’s crackdown. According to Levine, Facebook’s censorship arose after sites such as her own “stunned the political world in 2016” by empowering like-minded conservatives often overlooked by coastal political elites and mainstream media, and thus ushering...

    In a now-viral Facebook post from September of 2018, Breana Carlson led with a disclaimer about graphic potentially disturbing information and pictures, before exclaiming, “I genuinely feel like birth control has ruined my life.” Carlson was put on birth control in middle school in order to “regulate her menstrual cycles.” She was prescribed the hormonal contraceptive Junel and, within a couple of months of taking it, her cramps, acne, and heavy bleeding all lightened up. Within a year of starting hormonal birth control, her period stopped completely—also causing her relief. But her mother began to worry. A gynecologist reassured them...

    On Saturday The Gateway Pundit contributor Byron McKeeby pointed out that the shooter was a committed progressive. It is clear from his words that he is a PROGRESSIVE white nationalist – what was once defined as a “Nazi.” This is not to say he’s a Democrat or a Republican, but he is without question a progressive. All you have to do is read his manifesto to see the obvious tell-tale signs. Under his section titled “Economic Reasons” for the attack, the shooter states: “In the near future, America will have to initiate a basic universal income to prevent widespread poverty...

    After two recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, President Trump said his administration would ask social media companies to develop tools that could detect potential mass shooters. While delivering a speech on the recent violence, Trump said “we must do a better job of identifying and acting on early warning signs,” and he suggested social media companies could develop new ways of catching “red flags.” “I am directing the Department of Justice to work in partnership with local state and federal agencies, as well as social media companies, to develop tools that can detect mass shooters...

    Lila Rose, president of Live Action, was in the White House on Thursday to talk about censorship and Big Tech’s attempts to mute the spread of pro-life information with President Donald Trump. Live Action, one of the pro-life movement’s biggest and most influential companies, has run into issues across social media. They’re well known for their videos describing abortion procedures, undercover clinic videos in Planned Parenthood locations, and other materials that support a pro-life worldview. Pinterest removed its account and, when other users attempt to pin content from the organization, the content is placed on the same lists as pornographic...

    We’ve all looked up a word to find out its definition, but some of the political terms on Google’s “dictionary” are biased and could have long term implications for our nation’s political future.If you look up the word “conservative,” for example, you get these acceptable synonyms: traditionalist, conventional, orthodox, stable, prudent, and old-fashioned.  But these are also accompanied by these rather unflattering words: dyed-in-the-wool, unchanging, hidebound, timid, unadventurous, unenterprising, and set in one's ways, and stick in the mud.Terms associated with leftist politics did not have such condescending synonyms. The word “progressive” was described as modern, liberal, advanced, forward-looking, forward-thinking, go-ahead, enlightened, enterprising,...
