The Facebook Privacy Revelations Aren’t That Shocking

James Corbett, April 14 2018

So we'll also have to point out Google's own repeated violations and abuses of users’ privacy, and how, despite all the creepiness emanating from Facebook these days, Google still manages to find ways of being way creepier in its privacy invasions.

It's shocking, shocking, I tell you! Apparently, and I'm just learning this from some breaking news headlines so bear with me, but apparently Facebook has not been on the up and up when it comes to protecting their users' privacy. Incredible, I know. I mean, these are still early reports so we'll have to wait and see, but...

...OK. Enough sarcasm. But you probably have seen the headlines by now. Facebook scans the photos and links you send on Messenger and Zuckerberg says most Facebook users should assume they have had their public info scraped and Australia launches investigation into Facebook over data scandal and Facebook Decides Now's Not a Great Time to Harvest Patients' Medical Data.

And on and on and on. Yes, it seems even the normies are now finally aware of what we have known for years: Facebook is not so much a social media platform so much as it is a giant data vacuum sucking up your personal details for fun and profit (and social engineering and political control).

But rather than mocking the MSM addicts who are just getting the news, why don't we do something even more productive. Why don't we inform them about the bigger picture? With facts to back it up, even!

Like a link to the now-infamous IM exchange that Zuckerberg shortly after launching Facebook, in which he bragged that “I have over 4000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS. People just submitted it. I don’t know why. They ‘trust me.’ Dumb fucks.”

Or a link to the story of how Zuckerberg hacked into his rivals' email accounts using data he obtained from Facebook's server logs?

Or a link to a report about the hot mic that caught Zuckerberg promising German Chancellor Angela Merkel that he was working on the "problem" of political wrongthink on Facebook?

But then we run the risk of misleading our poor, info...

From Poisoned Spies to WWIII

James Corbett, March 17 2018

if there is a bright side, is that this incident probably won't lead to WWIII. Directly. Yet. But it is one more step along the path to outright conflict. And however much some might take solace in the fact that this is all a stage show between two sides that are being controlled by the same deep state forces...

Too Much?

Bob Rinear, March 14 2018

I don’t believe Trump wants war with anyone. I really don’t. But he stepped into a position that’s been created and maintained by war hawks for years on end. Afghanistan, Iraq, Vietnam, Syria, Lybia, you name it, and the Military/industrials love it.

Meet the New Fed Chairman

James Corbett, February 17 2018

As always, the people know that the markets are rigged, that the dollar is a paper promise with nothing to back it up, and that the central bankers and their financier cronies are not the "Wizards of Wall Street" but the "Wizard of Oz," i.e., little men behind a curtain desperately trying to distract the public with their hocus pocus parlor tricks.

So, what isn’t fake?

Bob Rinear, February 14 2018

No matter where we look, we see it. The media lies, the politicians lie, the markets get rigged, and we’re left to try and navigate through this mess. It gets frustrating. You find a stock that should be trading considerably lower. Their balance sheet stinks like 5 day fish.

What are the options?

Bob Rinear, January 17 2018

There are all sorts of options plays you can have fun with. I suggest that 90% of the people should stay with the absolute basics of trading options, and that simply means buying call options if you think a stock is going to rise. It means buying a put option if you think the stock is going to fall.
