💰Arron Banks - STM Fidecs Ltd

STM Fidecs Ltd was the first to register Leave.EU as a wholly owned subsidiary. Its ownership then passed to Banks.
theguardian.com/politics/2015/…
🔑Banks was previously a “substantial” shareholder in the firm’s parent company.

📌And the Panama Papers give further details of Banks’s offshore interests. He is listed as a shareholder of PRI Holdings, together with two other people.
theguardian.com/world/2016/oct…
One of them is Elizabeth Bilney, the chief executive of Leave.EU. Documents show Banks owns 25,500 shares in the firm, and Bilney 12,250.

It also shows how far yet to come. I fear #ETHI are falling short on addressing how to regulate, and improve governance and oversight of the subterranean influence industry #CambridgeAnalytica #SCL - GDPR fails here too. Dual strategy needed! Can we talk? @bobzimmermp @beynate
I’m alarmed by how much of what I know about #CambridgeAnalytica #scl is unaddressed in the debates taking place which are focused on #facebook - there needs to be a fuller understanding of the political economy of the substrate of #disinformation and influence companies
The business model of how the influence industry companies operate and how this is enabled and how it makes us vulnerable is not being addressed directly.

RECALL: BANKS: "In 12/18, So African intel officials confirmed to me that Banks, who owns diamond mines, had been the subject of two investigations by the Hawks....”

"This detailed @NewYorker investigation into Arron Banks, his Russian connections, and his opaque funding of the Leave.EU campaign makes an unanswerable case for a Mueller-style inquiry into whether the EU referendum was stolen."

Deep Dive: #FTC Negotiating Multi-Billion Dollar Fine For Facebook’s Privacy Scandals; Violating 2011 Accord
#FacebookPrivacyScandal

activistpost.com/2019/02/ftc-ne…
The FTC’s probe of Facebook began in March of last year in response to big social’s entanglement with #CambridgeAnalytica, a political consultancy firm connected to a U.S. subsidiary (SHELL COMPANY) of a UK defense contractor #SCLGroup, (Strategic Communication Laboratories)
#SCL improperly accessed data on 87 million of the social site’s users. According to reports, #Facebook knew for an entire three years that #CambridgeAnalytica was abusing and misusing user data but did absolutely nothing.

Speaking of crazy stories about former Israeli intelligence agents…the one about citizenlab nabbing a bumbling former agent in a sting op that turned the tables…
Hacking elections means different things to different people. That said, are we starting to see the pattern? And the same names keep popping up. It's rather peculiar that way. For example, Nigeria. theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/m…

Cambridge Analytica and SCL Elections are still operating. I have files strongly indicating this from 6 days ago.
Gov't investigations would be wise to get preservation notices out to AWS Ireland for anything interacting with ca-eng[.]io, auth[.]ca-eng[.]io, vault[.]ca-eng[.]io
And for everyone digging for nuggets of truth (gov't or otherwise), look into https://clear[.]ai

If you want a thread to pull on, consider why the same entity would be behind these listed sites: americanstrawpoll.com/img/
[ web.archive.org/web/2018100119… ]
Why would someone be interested in the data generated by the public interacting with those sites?
#CA #AIQ #SCL #PG #LD #AS #WPA
And, yeah, the "neverhillary" section is in reference to a previously active site "neverhillary2016.com" (a domain which I have since taken over ownership of after they let it lapse).
Here's a hint, "LoudDoor" is a bigger player than people realize.

Meet Sam Patten, former #CambridgeAnalytica operative who teamed up with accused Russian intel asset, Konstantin Kilimnik. In 2014, #AggregateIQ built RIPON for SCL Elections Ltd. AIQ is now suspended by Facebook. thedailybeast.com/accused-russia… via @dcpoll
Of course @carolecadwalla covered Patton’s role in Nigeria election black ops, with (now suspended) #AggregateIQ it turns out. The Oregon office of #CambridgeAnalytica would be conveniently close to Victoria, B.C., just saying.

Meet Kristen Fotenrose, who until a month ago worked at SCL Group Ltd, but now works in the White House for the NSC. This is insanity. #CambridgeAnalytica politi.co/2pZImzA
Evidence suggests that all of SCL’s data, including that sourced from #AggregateIQ and #CambridgeAnalytica appears to flow toward SCL Group’s data warehouse. Unsettling to say the least.
Listen to this profile on BBC radio of Nigel Oakes, founder of SCL. It is both engrossing and distressing. #CambridgeAnalytica #SCL

Remember when Nix told @CommonsCMS that “certain” #CambridgeAnalytica data in the US can flow to SCL Group? From @chrisinsilico docs, note #RIPON system architecture sends data to SCL warehouse. Unreal.
That, my friends, is what digital colonialism looks like.
From the #Ripon brochure. Did Nix give this to Lukoil (Putin)?#CambridgeAnalytica #SCL #AggregateIQ documentcloud.org/documents/4421…

Notice our AGs can’t go to #CambridgeAnalytica directly. Is it because it’s a British company? America’s voter dossiers are sitting in London and even by threat of legal action, SCL are weirdly refusing to fully disclose them to us. Now its servers seized by British authorities.
Good thing the UK Information Commissioner told @DamianCollins in House of Commons that the UK Data Protection Act applies regardless of citizenship if we perform a Subject Access Request and prove #CambridgeAnalytica processed our data. I did, last year.
We can’t assess the potential effects of psychographics if haven’t even seen a single complete, example of a #CambridgeAnalytica voter dossier. Let’s wait until we get mine back before we decide one way or another.

UK-CH4: #VoteLeave said they couldn't have won the #Brexit EU Referendum without Canadian firm Aggregate IQ.(AIQ)

I’m hearing Bannon lied at the FT conference. I have many reciepts that show Cambridge Analytica and SCL Group are tightly intertwined down to our data. Plus Nix told Parliament data is shareable between the entities.
Note Bannon’s Kremlin-style “whattaboutism” deflection but he’s wrong: Facebook’s Custom Audiences and Lookalikes features were not available during Obama campaigns. Bannon’s Project Alamo was all about uploading voter files into Facebook.

The Data That Turned the World Upside Down

#psychometrics #OCEAN #Psychographics motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/…
The "Big Five" (OCEAN) has become the standard technique of psychometrics. But for a long time, the problem was data collection, because it involved filling out a complicated, highly personal questionnaire. Then came the Internet. And Facebook. And Kosinski
Kosinski and his team could now ascribe Big Five values based on how many profile pictures/contacts a person has on Fb, but we also reveal something about ourselves even offline.

Phone motion sensors reveals how quickly we move/how far we travel (emotional instability)

Revealed: 50 million Facebook profiles harvested for Cambridge Analytica in major data breach
Whistleblower describes how firm linked to former Trump adviser Steve Bannon compiled user data to target American voters  theguardian.com/news/2018/mar/…
Cambridge Analytica who worked with Trump’s team and the winning Brexit campaign harvested millions of FB profiles of US voters, in the tech giant’s biggest ever data breach, and used them to build a powerful software program to predict and influence choices at the ballot box.
They used personal information taken without authorization in early 2014 to build a system that could profile individual US voters, in order to target them with personalised political advertisements.
