Edward Snowden is still a whistleblower. He’s just shared a video that is going to really anger one particular social media giant…
Facebook is all over the news lately.
We’ve been covering how the Social Network has been gathering your information and using it for their own gains. (See below)
The Media (D) has handled the Trump ‘data mining’ and Obama’s much more insidious ‘data mining’ quite differently:
The problem is that this was well known years ago, but the Media (D) was fawning over Barry’s ‘smart’ use of Social Media but now they find it insidious because a Republican dared use the information.
What about all the rest of us that think this is both incredibly disturbing and unbelievably creepy and don’t want anyone using our information without permission?
Well, that doesn’t matter because… ‘TRUMP!’
You know, one has to wonder if there was indeed ‘Madam President Pantsuit’, would any of this have come to light?
The anti-Trump hysteria is actually doing some good, it seems. It’s just not in the way that they intended.
Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower, posted a video on Twitter of Mark Zuckerberg speaking with BBC journalist Laura Trevelyan regarding Facebook’s use of data and it’s damning.
‘Facebook will never sell your information without consent.’
That is the impression Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was keen to give during a 2009 interview, but events in recent weeks suggest that was not the whole story.
Video footage of the conversation was posted to Twitter by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
It follows revelations that the Trump-affiliated consulting firm obtained data on at least 50 million unsuspecting Facebook users.
This information was used to target voters in the US, based on psychological profiling, with political adverts spreading disinformation.
Facebook is also facing criticism for collecting years of data on call and text histories from Android users.

The Cambridge Analytica scandal is even starting to hit Facebook’s bottom line:
And rightly so.
People didn’t agree to, or completely understand how Facebook was going to use their personal information.
Watch this 2009 interview on the BBC posted by Snowden:
Facebook: "This is their information. They own it"
BBC: "And you won’t sell it?"
FB: "No! Of course not."

Here is the transcript, you know, in case something ‘happens’ to it.
TREVELYAN: So who is going to own the Facebook content, the person who puts it there, or you?
ZUCKERBERG: The person who puts the content on Facebook always owns the information, and this is why Facebook is such a special service.
TREVELYAN: And you won’t sell it?
ZUCKERBERG: No, of course not.
TREVELYAN: Just to be clear, you’re not going to sell, or share, any of the information on Facebook?
ZUCKERBERG: We’re not going to share people’s information except for with the people that they’ve asked for it to be shared.

Facebook says that they’re now really concerned about keeping your information safe.
Tell me another bedtime story, Mr. Zuckerberg.

There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
Ladies, get yours here.
