    Another Major Cambridge Analytica Document Leak

    Fresh Cambridge Analytica leak ‘shows global manipulation is out of control

    “An explosive leak of tens of thousands of documents from the defunct data firm Cambridge Analytica is set to expose the inner workings of the company that collapsed after the Observer revealed it had misappropriated 87 million Facebook profiles.

    More than 100,000 documents relating to work in 68 countries that will lay bare the global infrastructure of an operation used to manipulate
    voters on “an industrial scale” is set to be released over the next months

    There are emails between these major Trump donors discussing ways of obscuring the source of their donations through a series of different financial vehicles. These documents expose the entire dark money machinery behind US politics.” The same machinery, she says, was deployed in other countries that Cambridge Analytica worked in, including, she claims, Britain.

    Emma Briant, an academic at Bard College, New York, who specialises in investigating propaganda and has had access to some of the documents for research, said that what had been revealed was “the tip of the iceberg”.

    “The documents reveal a much clearer idea of what actually happened in the 2016 US presidential election, which has a huge bearing on what will happen in 2020. It’s the same people involved who we know are building on these same techniques,” she said.

    “There’s evidence of really quite disturbing experiments on American voters, manipulating them with fear-based messaging, targeting the most vulnerable, that seems to be continuing. This is an entire global industry that’s out of controlbut what this does is lay out what was happening with this one company.

    No wonder Trump doesn't want any legislation against electoral interference.

    These revelations are far more damning than the Steele Dossier. The Steele Dossier was thoroughly investigated, so no doubt there will be a closer scrutiny of Cambridge Analytica and what it really stood for!!

    When was the last time right wingers in Canada and The US won an election fairly? I'm no expert on UK politics, but I question the Cons over the pond now as well.

    At the bottom of all the tributes paid to democracy, is the little man, walking into the little booth, with a little pencil, making a little cross on a little bit of paper - no amount of rhetoric or voluminous discussion can possibly diminish the overwhelming importance of the point.

    The manner in which the Conservatives won and by a stunning margin kind of draws a red flag. Especially if the REMAIN were just a couple of points behind the BREXIT in the referendum. But there will never be an investigation into these elections. No doubt, the Russians must have also contributed their two cents to it!!

    Can only think of 2015 and 2019 in Canada. As the midterms are not of huge concern to the foreign powers, add 2018 to the list for the USA!!
