The PM breaking #COVID19 lockdown rules then lying about it is serious

But there are MUCH bigger scandals than #Partygate (many of which I broke)

5/3/20 - #TakeItOnTheChin #HerdImmunityScandal

3/2/20 #GreenwichSpeech👇

15/5/20 #CarehomeScandal

👉the #DataGrab / #PalantirPlan
For me, my investigation began by chance on 8/3/20 when I stumbled on @BorisJohnson’s interview with @Schofe & @hollywills where he said “one theory is we could #TakeItOnTheChin

I clipped it & it went viral

Ironically, this was also the same day as first Briton died of #COVID
As #COVID19 hit, every epidemiologist/virologist made clear #HerdImmunity without a vaccine was an “outcome” not a “strategy”

Every behaviourist made clear “behavioural fatigue” was unscientific

Every expert knew about asymptomatic spread in Feb 2020

Then the penny dropped

So some interesting things have surfaced in the last few weeks that I want to share. Be patient with me, I’m slow & get interrupted a lot. But, I think it’s worth it to share this information before the mid-term elections.

😃 Please don’t forget to vote in November…💙
This article from 04/06/2022 has been weighing on my mind…it’s regarding the #RockbridgeNetwork, defined as a coalition.

What is a “political coalition” in the US?
Not much. It’s basically a verbal, non-regulated agreement to finance an agreed upon political agenda.
While #RockbridgeNetwork is being considered a “new GOP coalition”, it isn’t, think #CambridgeAnalytica. Plus, it is not the only “new GOP coalition” popping up before mid-term elections. #ChestnutStreetCouncil has been started by Matt Schlapp, think #KochNetwork

Please read this thread and listen to what I have to say.
We have a serious problem in our country. The GOP is fascist. 1
You need to come up with a united messaging strategy & go on the attack. I'm a lifelong Democrat. I'm incredibly disappointed in the lack of defense of: #JudgeKetanjiBrownJackson; the #LGBTQIA community; abortion rights; voting rights; and civil rights of Americans.
It's time 2/
To have daily press conferences pointing out the danger of the GOP to Americans.
The GOP has been taken over by white, fundamentalist, 'Christian', nationalists, who don't believe in multi-culturalism, democracy, or separation of church & state, aka #Dominionism.

Petit rappel qu'en 2011-12, la société de RP, Bell Pottinger, s'adonnait déjà à la rédaction malicieuse des pages @Wikipedia en faveur du dictateur du Yémen, Ali Abdallah Saleh, ce que son fondateur avait alors dénoncé ...

J'en parle rapidement dans @AgoraToxica

Les opérations sémantiques menées par Bell Pottinger pour le compte de Ali Abdallah Saleh (#Yémen) incluaient l'#astroturfing de pétitions, dont une sur @Change qui spooffait celle que j'avais co-créée avec des activistes yéménites.. Des milliers de faux comptes...

1/. Tomorrow, voters in #Hungary will go to the polls

#Orban, who installed what he calls “illiberal democracy” is running for his fifth term

He controls public television

His allies dominate private media

Voters are inundated with pro-Orban coverage…
2/. Ahead of the European elections, virtually all Hungary's newspapers ran the same front page Orban interview

Research found that 77% of political & public affairs media is financed by sources decided by ruling Fidesz party

These tactics are part of the authoritarian playbook Image
3/. Fascism experts like @TimothyDSnyder, believe politicians around the world are reviving century-old fascist tactics

They use populist rhetoric to stir-up divisions & harness the power of tech, big data & social media to win power & reshape narratives.

@SenWhitehouse @kelly2277 @SenWhitehouse, the #KochNetwork & #CouncilForNationalPolicy were gaming out how to overturn trump's loss in November in April 2020!! @EXPOSEDbyCMD has the receipts.

The GOP is behaving like they're lawless bc they're working on calling an Article 5 Constitutional Convention.
@SenWhitehouse @kelly2277 @EXPOSEDbyCMD The GOP #11PointPlan is a combination of their wish lists to destroy democracy & the federal government.
They're brainwashing people in churches. Watch the documentaries: People You May Know & @BrainwashingDad.
What they're doing should be illegal.
@SenWhitehouse @kelly2277 @EXPOSEDbyCMD @BrainwashingDad They're using #gloo, by #KochNetwork, to outreach to opioid addicts, mentally ill, & vulnerable people 4 outreach & indoctrination into RW politics.
These people have no idea that this is being done to them. It's morally wrong & should be illegal. It's like #CambridgeAnalytica.

@carolecadwalla What's happening has been decades in the making. The #ReligiousRight in America has been in bed with Russia for decades.
#TheFamily, #CouncilForNationalPolicy, the #KochNetwork & World Congress of Families are behind #January6th.
Billionaires loyalty is to greed.
@carolecadwalla If it's in America, I'm sure it's global.
These #Dominionists have been using a #CambridgeAnalytica operation in US churches since at least 2013. 60,000 pastors use #UIP & #Gloo metadata. They prey on opioid addicts, mentally ill, & the vulnerable for indoctrination into RW 2/
@carolecadwalla Politics. I'm an #exvangelical. In church, the pastors were telling us that all liberals/Democrats were satanic/demonic/evil & if we loved God, we'd vote for trump & GOP to save America. I got so freaked out that I quit my church. This happened all over the US in 2016. 3/

Boris Johnson: “It did happen & I’m not ashamed of it”

Angus Deayton: What aren’t you ashamed of, Boris?

Boris Johnson: Whatever there is not to be ashamed of


The laugh is crucial

He manages to make people laugh even while admitting his crime
In this 2013 interview, @BorisJohnson admits he’s not really “bumbling”

It’s just an put on act

In reality he’s “hard as nails”

He also tells us “a terrible truth about politics & human nature”

That you can “make a good case for any course of action”
“It’s often useful to give the slight impression that you are deliberately pretending not to know what's going on - because the reality may be that you don't know what's going on but people won't be able to tell the difference." @BorisJohnson #BorisJohnson

Palantir, the shadowy data, surveillance & genomics, that run the NHS COVID data store, plans to shift its entire UK data processing operation from the US!…

@DawnButlerBrent tells @MattHancock that Palantir rptdly taught #CambridgeAnalyica to scrape data!👇
3/. Whistleblower @chrisinsilico says that Palantir showed #CambridgeAnalytica how to harvest data from Facebook users ahead of #Brexit vote

"Hancock Cock Inn Cockup”

Ystdy, @MattHancock tried to get @AnnelieseDodds to withdraw a comment re his helping the ex-landlord of his local pub, the Cock Inn, to get a PPE contract

We’ve see the emails

Hancock & Lord Feldman helped 47 firms win 'VIP' contracts worth millions
Ystdy, @MattHancock went on the attack claiming Alex Bourne "never got a contract from the govt" & this was a "fabrication pushed by the Labour Party"

He was lying

@NAOorguk found PPE suppliers with links to Tory MPs were 10x more likely to win contracts
Digging by @JolyonMaugham reveals the contract went to Alpha Laboratories

That contract stipulates that Alpha Laboratories will sub-contract the manufacturing to Hinpack Ltd, owned by Alex Bourne

This info was redacted before publishing in what seems a clear attempt to deceive!

If I had a spare $10,800 I might spend it on dinner with #PeterThiel, the man behind the data/surveillance/genomics #Palantir who are behind the unparalleled #datagrab in the UK & globally

I’ve been investigating Palantir for 18 months & have a few questions I’d like to ask him! Image
So what would I ask Peter Thiel on our dinner date?

Is it true that #Palantir taught #CambridgeAnalytica how to scrape data?

Whistleblower @chrisinsilico says Palantir showed them how to harvest data from Facebook users ahead of #Brexit vote.
Emails link #CambridgeAnalytica & #Palantir’s psychographic project in data mining Facebook for electioneering in Brexit & in US in 2016

@chrisinsilico says “senior Palantir employees that were also working on the Facebook data”

Is this true?…

Ex-MI6 officer Christopher Steele tells @haynesdeborah about Russian interference in #Brexit

Palantir who rptdly taught #CambridgeAnalytica how to scrape data run the NHS #COVID19 data store with Cummings-linked Vote Leave firm, #FacultyAI
Christopher Steele also compiled a dossier alleging collusion btw Russia & the 2016 Trump election campaign

Were Brexit & Trump part of an intelligence-backed, right-wing plan for power through genomic data?

The #PalantirThree & #RussiaReport offer clues
Earlier this week, #ChristopherSteele told @GStephanopoulos that he’s speaking out now because “the problems we identified back in 2016 haven’t gone away, & arguably have actually got worse."

In the mid-20th century, satellites helped us determine the exact circumference of the Earth: 40,030km

But 2000+ years earlier, Eratosthenes
a Greek mathematician, came up with nearly the exact same figure using two sticks & his brain

Carl Sagan explains
I once asked “how is it that all scientists aren’t mystics, all cosmologists not poets?”

Carl Sagan was both of these

This passage - Pale Blue Dot - was inspired by the photo of Earth taken in 1990, by the Voyager 1 from a distance of about 6 billion km.
Scientists are like mystics in that they can travel in time explaining the past, seeing into the future

In this 1974 interview, Arthur Clarke makes precise predictions about the Internet & PC

1/. #BREAKING #COVID NEWSFLASH: The “official scientific advisers" behind the #HerdImmunityScandal were in reality were political advisors, appointed by politicians, who's advice had little or no basis in science (e.g. “Dr” David Halpern who has a doctorate in Political Science)
2/. Today’s findings are not new

The truth has been in plain sight from the start

We didn’t need #Cummings to tell us

Indeed, @Dominic2306 ‘revelations’ raised far more questions than answers

It was clear that #HerdImmunity was the strategy & they didn’t “pivot away” from it
3/. Every epidemiologist, virologist or public health expert will tell you that #HerdImmunity is an “outcome” NEVER a “strategy”

Without a vaccine it would involve sacrificing the vulnerable in vast numbers

This “strategy” would also clearly damage the economy

So why do it?👇

Today, the @ElectoralCommUK registered Britain First as a political party

#BritainFirst is a far-right, fascist political organisation formed in 2011 by former members of the BNP. The BNP was created from the NF

If it can be shown to insight racial hatred, could it be barred?
In 2015, Bannon told #CambridgeAnalytica’s @chrisinsilico to build a psychological warfare tool to hollow out democracy & rive open divisions in societies

It worked

The far-right are not only on our streets & TLs but increasingly pulling strings of power
In 2017, Bannon asked #Farage to be part of a "convening authority" to "knit together a populist nationalist movement around the world"

He mentions Modi, Orban, Sisi, Duterte

We can add Trump, @BorisJohnson & @jairbolsonaro to that list, & several others

🔥Shareholders sue #Facebook alleging that the company overpaid nearly $5 BILLION more to the FTC than its original $106 million penalty to settle the #CambridgeAnalytica data leak **so Mark Zuckerberg could avoid deposition and personal liability**.…
#Facebook conditioned its $5 billion payment to the Federal Trade Commission to resolve the #CambridgeAnalytica data leak probe on the FTC dropping plans to *sue Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg individually*.

Americans’ personal data was weaponized to help flip the 2016 to Trump.🤬
“Zuckerberg, Sandberg & other #Facebook directors agreed to authorize a multi-BILLION settlement with the FTC as an express quid pro quo to protect Zuckerberg from being named in the FTC’s complaint, made subject to personal liability, or even required to sit for a deposition.”💥

After not hearing a peep from Michael Gove for months, eye-watering videos of him dancing in a club above a pub last night have emerged

He turned up alone & tried to avoid paying the £5 entry fee

“He was saying he shouldn't have to pay,” the manager said
Unverified footage shows #Gove leaving the club in the early hours of the morning

We may laugh, but he’s a key architect of Brexit & champion of Cummings

Did his “Bell Curve bookshelf stunt”hint at his Involvement with the #GenomeUK plan & #PalantirPlan?
The #PalantirPlan & #GenomeUK plan are summarised below👇

Our society is based on science & technology, but few people understand anything about science & technology
