Default Cambridge Analytica, SCL, Facebook, Wikileaks, Trump, Brexit

For a couple of times it looked like the Cambridge Analytica (part of the SCL Group) scandal would erupt...

It was Cambridge Analytica that made Brexit happen and, together with WikiLeaks, got President Trump crowned as president.
In one of those strange coincidences, Julian Assange effectively headquarters WikiLeaks from the Ecuadorian embassy, just a few miles away from Cambridge Analytica’s head office (in London).

Just before the US election in November 2016, Alexander Nix (CEO of Cambridge Analytica) contacted Julian Assange to ask him if he wanted some “help” with WikiLeaks’s stolen emails.

In some more strange coincidences, Nigel Farage, who led the Brexit campaign, is friends with Steve Bannon and Robert Mercer (Mercer is financier of Cambridge Analytica, part of the SCL Group). Steve Bannon was part of Donald Trump’s team, is leading propaganda network Breitbart and was working with Cambridge Analytica.
Farage subsequently visited Donald Trump, Assange, and then Dana Rohrabacher. Rohrabacher is described in the US press as “Putin’s favourite congressman”.

Then Rohrabacher met Donald Trump’s Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya…
This was followed by Rohrabacher meeting with Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy:

By common consensus,Cambridge Analytica is owned by Robert Mercer, but in reality Cambridge is “the US subsidiary of SCL Group” in which the British Iranian multimillionaire Vincent Tchenguiz is the largest shareholder.
Cambridge Analytica is entirely owned by SCL Elections, owned by executive Alexander Nix. Julian David Wheatland, SCL Group Chairman is still Tchenguiz’s employee Wheatland. Vincent Tchenguiz also has connections to Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash.

In March 2011, the brothers Tchenguiz were arrested as they were suspected to be guilty of a bankruptcy fraud involving the Icelandic bank Kaupthing. Just before its collapse, Kaupthing’s loans to the Tchenguiz brothers totalled 40% of its capital. The Tchenguiz brothers were acquitted as in our Brave New World the legal system protects the big criminals.
Kaupthing’s largest shareholder, Meidur (now called Exista), owned 25% of its shares, had ties to the Alfa Bank that - together with Spectrum Health of the DeVos family - was caught communicating with a server of the Trump Organization during the 2016 election:

Whistleblower Christopher Wylie claims to have created “Steve Bannon’s psychological warfare mindfuck tool”.

Wylie has evidence - receipts, invoices, emails, legal letters – that between June and August 2014, he got a hand on the profiles of more than 50 million Facebook users. He even has a letter from Facebook’s lawyers admitting that Cambridge Analytica had acquired the data illegitimately.

Wylie has a copy of a 4 June 2014 contract, between SCL and Global Science Research (GSR), owned by Cambridge-based Aleksandr Kogan. Cambridge Analytica spent $7 million for the Facebook data. Kogan’s app, thisismydigitallife, gave him permission to access not only the Facebook profiles of the people that accepted the terms and conditions, but also of their friends.
Some 320,000 Facebook users in total gave permission, which also gave them access to more than 50 million of their “friends”.
Wylie explains that:
Facebook could see it was happening. Their security protocols were triggered because Kogan’s apps were pulling this enormous amount of data, but apparently Kogan told them it was for academic use. So they were like, ‘Fine’.
Both Facebook and SCL strongly denied the allegations by Wylie…

Starting in 2007, David Stillwell, devised various Facebook apps, including a personality quiz myPersonality. This was used to measure personality traits across the population and was used to analyse against Facebook “likes”, which Wylie explains:
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.
Wylie met Steve Bannon, Robert Mercer (co-CEO of Renaissance Technologies) and his daughter Rebekah.
SCL “reached out” to WikiLeaks to “help” distribute Hillary Clinton’s emails in 2016.

SCL group has been contracted by the UK’s Ministry of Defence and the US’s Department of Defense. Its expertise is in psychological operations (psyops) – changing people’s minds through “informational dominance”, a set of techniques including rumour, disinformation and fake news.
Wylie explains:
It’s like dirty MI6 because you’re not constrained. There’s no having to go to a judge to apply for permission. It’s normal for a ‘market research company’ to amass data on domestic populations. And if you’re working in some country and there’s an auxiliary benefit to a current client with aligned interests, well that’s just a bonus.
Wylie also explains that he once gave a presentation with Cambridge Analytica CEO is Alexander Nix for Russian giant oil and gas company Lukoil, whose CEO is a former Soviet oil minister and associate of Putin, Vagit Alekperov.
Their presentation was really about behavioural microtargeting in the context of elections. Wylie says:
It didn’t make any sense to me. I didn’t understand either the email or the pitch presentation we did. Why would a Russian oil company want to target information on American voters?
