The Truth Factory suspects that something deeper is afoot with the recent de-platforming and demonetization of numerous accounts belonging to Conservative pundits on Facebook. She takes a look at the history of Facebook to find out what is going on.
She reminds us of a DARPA project called LifeLog, which tracked users’ browsing, chat and banking histories – plus the books and magazines users had read, plus television watched – plus geolocation!
Does this sound like anything you’ve ever used? Like Facebook? She notes that DARPA’s LifeLog project was canceled on February 4, 2004 – on the very same date that Facebook was founded.
Facebook, like Google and other Big Tech companies was funded through CIA incubators, like In-Q-Tel and the Highlands Forum and it was always intended to be a form of privatized intelligence-gathering, which would enable the intelligence agencies and law enforcement to circumvent Constitutional law to spy on platform users.
She points out the speciousness of Zuckerberg’s story about the birth of Facebook and wonders how someone with the “charisma of styrofoam” was able to attract investors, let alone how someone with lackluster coding skills was able to write the hundreds of thousands of lines of source code for the Facebook website in a matter of 3 weeks while also attending classes at Harvard University full-time.
According to Michael McKibben, Zuckerberg’s claims sound far-fetched because they’re not true. McKibben claims his 1999 white paper with his revolutionary source code for the scalability of social media fell into Zuckerberg’s hands while the latter was attending Harvard as a classmate of his son. The verdict in McKibben’s case against Facebook said that Facebook HAD infringed on his patent – but that the patent was invalid due to an obscure law.
Until recently, Fcaebook was working with DARPA to develop a Silent Speech Interface, which would enable users to send texts and emails directly “from their brains”, without taking out their phones.
The Truth Factory says, “While they’re acting as moral arbiters, selectively silencing out speech, who is monitoring their morality?…Who is to say that this culture war and move towards political correctness and censorship online hasn’t been created and orchestrated by them through social manipulation, by intentionally and repeatedly showing us what they want us to believe?…If we weren’t a threat to them and their agenda, there wouldn’t be any need to get rid of us. They know that the right-leaning pundits on their websites in no small way helped Trump get elected. And now they’re using ‘hate speech’ to manipulate the entire world.”
The tech giants have so far evaded Anti-Trust litigation because they’ve provided a convenient way for the Deep State to break the law but if 13 Russian trolls can be indicted for subverting democracy by posting political memes on Facebook, then Facebook deleting American political pundits with millions of viewers is also subverting democracy and potentially manipulating political outcomes. On the bright side, the Anti-Trust investigations launched last week enjoy surprising bi-partisan support.
