Bannon and Cambridge Analytica ...




1/
2/ This article references the defense contract as well and explains the substantial overlap & fuzzy line between SCL and Cambridge Analytica. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
3/ In Feb. 2017, SCL had “just finalized” a $500k contract w/ the State Dept. & had “pitched officials in key national security agencies on how its technology could be used to deter terrorism & ...help assess attitudes about IMMIGRANTS.” What the H?!

4/ So has the White House been using Cambridge Analytica/SCL to spread its anti-immigrant messaging via taxpayer funded government contracts?!
5/ Here is Bannon’s White House disclosure filed in March 2017 (after he left the WH) disclosing his close ties to Cambridge Analytica. drive.google.com/drive/mobile/f…
6/ “The SCL has come under fire for collecting the personal information of 50 million Facebook users and giving it to Cambridge Analytica, its spinoff branch.”
The firm behind Facebook's massive data scandal has a U.S. State Department contract
The U.S. State Department reportedly confirmed it has an open contract with the parent company of Cambridge Analytica, the data firm ousted for harvesting Facebook user data.

7/ “The company harvested the data with the help of Cambridge professor Aleksandr Kogan and his company Global Science Research, which used a personality test app called thisisyourdigitallife to learn more about Facebook users.”
8/ “After receiving the data without permission, Cambridge Analytica created a powerful software that was designed to influence Facebook users’ votes.”
9/ “We exploited Facebook to harvest millions of people’s profiles. And built models to exploit what we knew about them & target their inner demons,” Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie told The Observer. “That was the basis that the entire company was built on.”
10/ “Wylie, who went public with the allegations last week, briefly addressed the contract in an interview with the Guardian.”
11/ “It’s insane,” he said. “The company has created psychological profiles of 230 million Americans. And now they want to work with the Pentagon? It’s like Nixon on steroids.”
12/ I would like to know if Trump’s White House awarded government contracts to SCL not to deter actual terrorism, but rather to fuel its anti-immigrant messaging and other propaganda. This is potentially a lot worse than standard “corruption.”
13/ “As Cambridge Analytica and SCL Elections shut down, SCL Group's defence work needs real scrutiny.” I couldn’t agree more.
As Cambridge Analytica and SCL Elections shut down, SCL Group's defence work needs real scrutiny
We can’t understand the significance of Cambridge Analytica without looking at the network it sits in, and how inadequate controls nurtured aspects of this networks’ development.

14/ And it will likely take subpoenas from the House or a lawsuit by a group line @CREWcrew to get this information.

15/ “In explaining that the [NSA] had declined to even...search for records about...SCL Group, Chapman wrote, ‘...due to changing security concerns, this is now our standard response to all requests where...records are being sought on a contract or contract-related activity.”
