Cambridge Analytica once bragged of its ability to target voters with ads based on their psychological traits in order to manipulate them better. Whether that worked has been the subject of raging debate, but now you can see those targeted ads for yourself, courtesy of documents leaked by a whistleblower earlier this week.

gnome chompsky's propaganda model ought to be basic reading at this point. once you see what they're up to, you can't un-see it.

what is new is the amount of data being harvested. which is why it's important to feed some garbage to the monster from time to time, or all the time.

Anyway, the same people who are all pissed off about CA data mining to help Blumpf couldn't care less that Obomber campaigns also got data through fedbook. Barry Soetoro is/was Standing On The Right* (*As In Correct Not The Political Orientation) Side Of History when he did that, and also when he sent humanitarian bombs of peace to Libya, etc.

I immediately trash any ad that features John Bolton. I remember all too well the televised image of his bulbous nose and mustachioed face flattened against a plate glass door when he was summoned to Miami to stop the Bush/Gore vote re-count. He was screaming with rage and trying to break into the room.

Too bad nobody got a screen shot of that. It was hilarious, horrifying and insane all at the same time. It was one of those images that can't be undone. I can never look at him now without seeing a flashback what I saw that day.

Once the Democrats mixed in the "found votes" and counted them they couldn't be separated from the real votes.
