HI-TECH HEIST: Trump campaign firm Cambridge Analytica poached FB data for ‘psycho-metric’ scam

Cambridge Analytica, the London-based data analytics firm that was hired by Donald Trump’s campaign team, helped themselves to the personal data of more than 50 million Facebook users – then used the data to identify “persuadable voters that could be influenced to vote for the Trump campaign,” as explained by Cambridge Analytica’s CEO, Alexander Nix while speaking at the 2016 Concordia Summit.

Facebook suspended Cambridge Analytica from its platform and denied any wrongdoing, saying users give their consent when they create an account. The scandal has given rise to a #DeleteFacebook movement and lead to a drastic drop in Facebook’s stock.

Monday, an undercover investigation by Channel 4 News in the U.K. featured a series of videos with Senior executives at Cambridge Analytica using unscrupulous intelligence-gathering techniques and “psychological warfare tools” to run election campaigns all over the world, including here in America.

“They use this to gain information and map the personalities of over 50 million Facebook users. You may be one of them … I think this was in [Orwell’s novel] Nineteen Eighty-Four.

“Cambridge Analytica is a company that is owned by the funders of Breitbart, and Steve Bannon is on the board. They were hired by the Trump campaign to help them out in the 2016 election,” said Glenn on the show today. He added that the Channel 4 News documentary, “uncovered, not only clever manipulation of social media but also tactics that might make a Soviet Union spy nod in approval — or even get a little bit squeamish.”

Watch the video clip above to see Glenn’s in-depth look into the controversial use of “psychometrics” by data analytics firms like Cambridge Analytica.

“What [psychometrics] does is it analyzes your social media activity and it ‘maps’ your personality. They use this to gain information and map the personalities of over 50 million Facebook users. You may be one of them,” said Glenn. “Once they obtain that data, they can ascertain what drives you, what you’re afraid of. From there, they showed you what made you afraid, and turned it into something that would make you angry … I think this was in [George Orwell’s novel] Nineteen Eighty-Four.”

NY Post editor speaks out after 'Big Tech' SILENCES bombshell story on Hunter Biden & Ukraine

NY Post Opinion Editor Sohrab Ahmari tried posting a link on Twitter to the bombshell story his newspaper broke about newly obtained emails between Hunter Biden and Burisma officials in Ukraine. But he was blocked. According to Twitter, the story was "potentially harmful." Yeah, harmful to the Joe Biden campaign… because this story — if verified to be true — is the "smoking gun" that threads ALL the pieces of the Biden, Ukraine saga together. But instead of allowing voters to make their own decisions in the upcoming election, it seems Big Tech is doing what it can to gate keep in new, dangerous ways.

How did a repair shop obtain Hunter Biden's alleged laptop?

This might be the craziest story of 2020 so far. So crazy, in fact, that Glenn and Stu have a hard time believing it's fully true. New, damning emails were just unveiled between a top businessman at energy company Burisma and Joe Biden's son, Hunter, discussing how he could "use [his] influence" on the company's behalf. But that's not the insane part...the emails were discovered on a laptop, possibly Hunter Biden's, that was mysteriously abandoned at a computer repair shop. So, is it fake news? The work of a foreign influence? Or did Hunter not think this through? Either way, the laptop is in the hands of a FBI investigation now, so the Biden family/Ukraine saga lives on...

'You have about 3 weeks to prepare for INSANITY': Glenn Beck issues warning ahead of election

Do you feel like something big is coming with this election? Whether it's societal collapse or just widespread unrest, it feels like "evil is washing over the world right now," said Glenn Beck on his radio program.

"I think these are the beginnings of the days that have been foretold," Glenn stated. He urged Americans to prepare — physically, spiritually, and mentally — but also warned against adding to any violence.

"We will not be counted as 'helpers', if you will, if we are engaging in violence. That is different than protecting your family, your home … but for those who are thinking, 'I'm going to get a group together.' That is not the way to go," Glenn said.

"You have about three weeks to prepare for insanity. It may not happen and I pray it does not happen. But I can't recommend highly enough that you prepare food storage. That you prepare for your home to be secure. That you have met with your family and your children, and you know where you're supposed to go if there is a problem. That you prepare financially. And then you've got to do your homework and prepare educationally. Do you have a physical copy of the Constitution of the United States and the Declaration of Independence? You need that," he advised.

Glenn also encouraged listeners to prepare spiritually, to work on establishing a strong relationship with "the spirit", to ask for advice, and to obey the answer.

"You also have to prepare mentally," he added. "We are going to be leaving things behind us. and I mean that historically. I think things are going to change. Don't pine for the good old days. Look forward to the future."

EXCLUSIVE: Here's proof that Joe Biden's family OWNED SLAVES

The left has been pushing "cancel culture" onto Americans for years now. But, for some reason, cancel culture only cancels those of us on the right…which is why people like Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel can either use or make fun of blackface and still live to tell the tale. So, in the name of fairness, it only makes sense to point out the blatant racism that occurred in the Biden family generations ago, right? Because a new report from a famous, well-known genealogy organization shows that Joe Biden's family owned slaves. It kind of puts Biden's connections with segregationists and his blatantly racist comments in a whole new light, doesn't it?
