FBI Investigating Google & Facebook For ‘Rigging Elections’ For Democrats – Your News Wire

The FBI’s Counterintelligence Division is leading an investigation into the Google and Facebook cyber operation that rigged the 2008 and 2012 elections for Barack Obama, and attempted to rig the 2016 election in Hillary Clinton’s favor.  

Investigators are examining whether Google’s left-wing news site manipulation played any role in the 2008 operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories — some fictional — that favored Obama’s and, later, Clinton’s presidential bid, people familiar with the inquiry say.

Experts also claim that the DNC hyped up a faked perception of a “Russian Hack” in 2016 in order to distract from the fact that the DNC’s Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and an army of off-shore bot-farms actually did rig Obama’s original election, the 2012 election and attempted to rig the 2016 election for Hillary.

AbelDanger report that operatives for Google/Soros appear to have strategically timed the computer commands, known as “bots,” to blitz social media with links to the pro-left stories at times when the multi-billionaire Silicon Valley Cartel of businessmen were on the defensive in the Presidential races.

The bots’ end products were largely tens of millions of Twitter and Facebook posts carrying links to stories on leftist internet sites such as Huffpo News and CNN, as well as on the Soros-backed Move-on and Black Lives Matter News, the sources said.

Some of the stories were false or mixed fact and fiction, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the bot attacks are part of an FBI-led investigation into a multifaceted Google-based operation to influence multiple year’s elections.

Investigators examining the bot attacks are exploring whether the far-left news operations took any actions to assist Soros’s operatives. Their participation, however, wasn’t necessary for the bots to amplify their news through Twitter and Facebook…

Germany Threaten Facebook With ‘Huge Fines’ If They Don’t Remove Alternative News – Your News Wire

Germany will impose fines of up to 50 million euros if Facebook don’t remove alternative news content from their platform. 

A new law being drafted will see social media firms face hefty fines if they take longer than seven days to remove content that German authorities deem to be “illegal” – including so-called fake news.

Germany’s justice minister, Heiko Mass, says that social media giants such as Facebook have not done enough to tackle content that the government deems ‘subversive’.

BBC News reports:

The proposal requires sites to run 24-hour helplines and to delete flagged content within seven days.

‘Utterly impossible’

Social media firms such as Twitter and Facebook were getting better at handling illegal content, said Mr Maas, but both had a long way to go.

Mr Maas quoted research which suggested Twitter deletes only 1% of the hate speech it is told about by users, and Facebook, 39%.

“This isn’t sufficient yet,” said Mr Maas.

Racism and hate speech are believed to have become more prevalent on German social media following the arrival of large number of refugees in Germany.

Any content that was “clearly criminal” would have to be removed within 24 hours under conditions outlined in the draft law. If, after an investigation, content is found to be criminal then that must be removed in seven days. The people who posted the illegal content must also be told about its deletion.

The proposed law would require each network to run fully staffed, round-the-clock reporting systems and to name an individual responsible for handling complaints. That person could face an individually levied fine of five million euros if companies break laws governing what can be published.

Mr Maas said the law could apply to fake news articles if they proved to be slanderous, defamatory or libellous.

Facebook did not comment directly on the proposal but said tests it commissioned showed it removed a higher percentage of illegal content than Mr Maas claimed. The social network said it expected to have 700 people employed in Berlin by the end of 2017 overseeing its efforts to review flagged content.

German digital trade association Bitkom criticised the proposed law. It told the Financial Times that the requirement to remove material within 24 hours on sites that handle more than one billion posts per day was “utterly impossible to implement in operational terms”.

Julian Assange Proudly Declares Himself A ‘Deplorable’ – Your News Wire

Twitter has binary class system with proximity to power represented by ‘blue tick’ insignia. I am enjoying being one of its deplorables.

Twitter usually verifies celebrities and accounts “determined to be of public interest” with a “blue tick”, letting users know that it is the official account of the individual or company.

Though WikiLeaks and the WikiLeaks Task Force accounts are verified, Assange, one of the most prominent public figures in the world, has been repeatedly denied a verification badge on his own account despite repeated attempts to get Twitter to verify him.

This is absurd,” Assange tweeted at CEO Jack Dorsey on Wednesday, along with a screenshot of Twitter’s verification rejection. “We’ve been trying to verify this account since early October.”…
