Is Cambridge Analytica Scandal Replacement for Russians-Stole-The-Election Investigation?
Is the Cambridge Analytica alleged scandal—in reality a bombshell dropped out of the blue by the New York Times and The Guardian’s Observer—now dominating the daily news, a desperate replacement for Special Counsel Robert Mueller III’s fading ‘Russians-Stole-The-Election’ investigation?

It certainly fits the desperate, no-evidence special counsel need like a glove.

A Canada Free Press (CFP) synopsis of where things now stand:


At best the Cambridge Analytica scandal is fake news

At best the Cambridge Analytica scandal is fake news; at worst, a brand new way to continue to press for the much longed for impeachment of President Donald Trump.

No time for questioning the timing of the NYT and Observer’s news bombshell drop when the alleged “data breach from Facebook accounts” story has already gone viral over the Internet.

Conspicuously missing from the story is something pointed out by today’s Washington Times:

“This alleged data “breach” from Facebook accounts is not identity theft, in which hackers try to steal your credit card information, Social Security number or bank account. The accusation leveled against the voter-profiling research firm Cambridge Analytica involves the exploitation of Facebook users’ personal choices and “likes”—expressed online voluntarily for their friends to see—that let researchers and analysts make educated guesses about a person’s political leanings and susceptibility to advertising. (Washington Times, March 20, 2018)

“This sounds scary to a lot of people because the name ‘Trump’ is attached to it,” Republican digital strategist Patrick Ruffini said. “In reality, this was being done first by the Obama campaign in 2012 and subsequently by other Republican campaigns. This is no different than what Obama did, and no different than what other campaigns and companies have done.”

Obama pioneered the strategy in 2008, perfecting it in 2012—without the MSM, social media or “digital strategists” ever batting an eyelash

But it is different than what Obama did because Obama pioneered the strategy in 2008, perfecting it in 2012—without the MSM, social media or “digital strategists” ever batting an eyelash.

Lost in the current media saturation hoopla is that Obama owns the masses, courtesy of a mass data mining technique—he continues to own to this day.

Patently ignored by the media is that while Obama is no longer in office, he is still out there data mining, a data mining that could be the blueprint for the return of Democrats in exile come this November’s Midterms.

That the media would come along and blame the Donald Trump campaign team’s alleged data “breach” from Facebook is Obama Marxist Projection 101.

Obama, well-known for spying on his political opponents, was spying on American citizens—and getting away with it—as far back as 2013, when Rep. Maxine Waters was openly bragging about it on national television: (Brietbart, Mar. 20, 2018)

“The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life,” Representative Maxine Waters told Roland Martin on Monday. “That’s going to be very, very powerful,” Waters said. “That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it’s never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They’re going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can’t get around it. And he’s [President Obama] been very smart. It’s very powerful what he’s leaving in place, Waters told Roland Martin on Feb. 11, 2013.


The media give Facebook far too much credit for its ‘likers’ having won Donald Trump the presidency

Waters, who was to go on to become the Democrats’ prime Impeachment agent following the election of President Donald Trump, unwittingly gave us a bird’s eye view on why so many Republicans jump into the tank with the Progressive Democrats, and why so many of them are voluntarily not standing for re-election for Midterms 2018.

Call it blackmail.

Nor has Facebook been anything but willingly compromised.

“Facebook said Monday that it had hired a firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of Cambridge Analytica, which was hired by the Trump campaign, and the whistleblower, Christopher Wylie, who accused Cambridge of misusing the data. (Washington Times).

“Facebook officials said Mr. Wylie has declined to submit to an audit.

“We are moving aggressively to determine the accuracy of these claims,” Facebook said in a statement. “We remain committed to vigorously enforcing our policies to protect people’s information.”


Like hundreds of others, Facebook suspended Cambridge Analytica last week for what it says is “a violation of its policies”.

The media give Facebook far too much credit for its ‘likers’ having won Donald Trump the presidency.

Some 63 million voters did that.



It is well known that Facebook was already suppressing Trump-supporting conservative news sites back during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

Meanwhile, although they’ll never admit it, things aren’t going well for the Dems in Exile. The Mueller camp has not been able to come up with any evidence for their Russian Collusion pursuits with Midterms within sight.

Is that why the MSM has thrown Cambridge Analytica to the ravening wolves?

Obama, the King Midas of the gold known as Data Mining, pioneered the strategy Cambridge Analytica used to get Trump elected.

And just to think this Sneaky Pete of Politics is just blocks away from the White House in the $5.5 million Kalorama headquarters with his activist wife and Valerie Jarrett!

Fortunately for President Trump attorney Joseph diGenova, nicknamed “The Pit Bull”, who pushes the belief that Trump is being framed by a group of FBI and Justice Department officials, has joined his legal team.

Over to you, Mr. diGenova.
