Why Trump Bombed Syria
via Johnny Gat
I’ve recently discovered a campaign being run by the pro-Israel pro-Trump shills in alternative media to disassociate the election campaign of Donald Trump and Cambridge Analytica. The article that first caught my attention was by Daniel Greenfield of FrontPage Magazine. The source “Shillman Fellow” Daniel Greenfield is references in his article is a CBS article by Major Elliot Garrett. I guess it’s okay to reference “fake news” from “fake news” outlets if it fits your agenda.
A look into Major Elliott Garrett’s background reveals several connections to powerful people that are part of the network that I continue to expose. Garrett was employed by Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News for a eight year period. His articles have also been published in The Weekly Standard which is owned by the powerful Philip Anschutz. Anschutz Foundation is donor to right wing organisations such as Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy.
The above image is taken from the Center for Security Policy’s 2013 Schedule B that you can view here.
Frank Gaffney and David Horowitz worked together on the book entitled The Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration.
“Shillman Fellow” gets it’s name from Robert Shillman who sits on the board of the David Horwitz Freedom Center and also funds David Horowitz’s Frontpage magazine that Greenfield works for. So this whole moniker of “Shillman Fellow” which Daniel Greenfield, Laura Loomer and Tommy Robinson use is a meaningless farce bestowed on sellout frauds in a sad attempt to give them some journalistic credibility. The “Shillman Fellows” are “fake news” journalists that are funded to push forward the agenda of their paymasters and run hasbara to counter information that is causing damage to this network. The Daniel Greenfield is a classic case of just that.
This is the quote Greenfield uses in an effort to discredit the connection between Cambridge Analytica and the Trump Campaign.
In late September 2016, Cambridge and other data vendors were submitting bids to the Trump campaign. Then-candidate Trump’s campaign used Cambridge Analytica during the primaries and in the summer because it was never certain the Republican National Committee would be a willing, cooperative partner. Cambridge Analytica instead was a hedge against the RNC, in case it wouldn’t share its data.
The crucial decision was made in late September or early October when Mr. Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and Brad Parscale, Mr. Trump’s digital guru on the 2016 campaign, decided to utilise just the RNC data for the general election and used nothing from that point from Cambridge Analytica or any other data vendor. The Trump campaign had tested the RNC data, and it proved to be vastly more accurate than Cambridge Analytica’s, and when it was clear the RNC would be a willing partner, Mr. Trump’s campaign was able to rely solely on the RNC.
This quote from Garrett’s CBS News article is complete disinformation and is purposely playing on peoples lack of knowledge about how Cambridge Analytica works and it’s deep connections to the Trump campaign for many reasons which I will delve into deeper further.
Channel 4’s Cambridge Analytica Video
In the above video after the 4:40 mark Channel 4 reports that Cambridge Analytica was paid $5 million by the Trump Presidential Campaign “in September 2016 alone.”
Alexander Nix the suspended CEO of Cambridge Analytica is featured in the video explaining how CA used psychoanalysis using big data including data from the primaries to target individual voters or potential voters in the Presidential Election. This proves without doubt that the Trump campaign were using Cambridge Analytica after the primaries. Alexander Nix is also quoted in a interview with Motherboard stating “Pretty much every message that Trump put out was data-driven.”
The video also features Trump campaigner Jack Posobiec talking about how big data through the application on his phone is helping him target individuals. Posobiec is a part of this entire network. He is a regular guest and host on the Alex Jones’ Infowars. He previously worked for Rebel Media which is funded by Robert Shillman much like FrontPage Magazine that Daniel Greenfield works for. Amazingly, after this appearance on TV in this Channel 4 report Posobiec is now denying that the Trump Presidential campaign worked with CA during the election. Repeating the exact same narrative as Daniel Greenfield. This is just unbelievable.
Trump Campaign payments to Cambridge Analytica
Above is a screenshot taken from the Federal Election Commission website showing the payments made by the Trump campaign to Cambridge Analytica.The final payment in December 2016 for $312,500 is second only to the campaign’s $5 million payment on Sept. 1, 2016. All the payments are made after the Republican primaries and after Donald Trump got the GOP’s nomination on July 18.
Thou the filings only show when the firm was paid, not when it provided its services. However, the video above clearly shows Cambridge Analytica working for the Trump campaign in the Presidential Election. This is further backed up by former Cambridge Analytica staffer Matt Oczkowski and Brad Parscale who described for Wired magazine the work the firm did in the final months of the campaign.
Oczkowski told Wired, “The RNC was the voter file of record for the campaign, but we were the intelligence on top of the voter file.”
“Matt Oczkowski and his team created a daily tracker of polling, so that I could see how Trump was doing in key swing states,” Parscale said. “They provided that to me daily.”
Plus, Parscale said Cambridge Analytica helped with “persuasion online media buying,” and “they created a visualization tool that showed in each state which areas were most persuadable and what those voters care about.”
It bears noting that while the Trump campaign didn’t rely on Cambridge Analytica’s voter data for core voter outreach, the firm stayed busy attacking Trump’s opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton and employed other tactics to target undecided and swing voters.
In the final months of the election, the firm was paid about $850,000 by the Make America Number 1 Super PAC. The group’s self-declared aim was “to make clear to the American voter the full extent of the untrustworthiness of Hillary Rodham Clinton by focusing on the corruption of the Clinton Machine and especially the corruption of the Clinton Foundation.”
Despite these facts the self proclaimed “journalist” Daniel Greenfield claims “Trump didn’t even use the Cambridge data. This is a typical fake news scandal.”
The Real Making of the President: Cambridge Analytica
I put together the video below and published it on the April 26 2017. The video gets into further details on the role Cambridge Analytica played in the election campaign. It details the deep connections to the network that I have been exposing including a big player behind Trump, Robert Mercer a mathematics genius of Renaissance Technologies that incorporates sophisticated algorithms with hedge funds. Mercer is connected to both the Make America Number 1 Super PAC and John Bolton SuperPAC, Breitbart News and the Council for National Policy.
