🔥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.”💥

The NHS = the most trusted brand in the UK

Cambridge Analytica = the least trusted

And yet #Palantir & #FacultyAI who run our #COVID19 data store, rprtdly have links with #CambridgeAnalytica

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

As Carl Sagan said this is a“combustible mixture that will one day blow up in our faces”

Let's just remind everyone who Jack POS-obiec is, shall we?

#RussianProxy #Propagandist

While you read the info in this thread, remember that Matt Gaetz is still on the oversight committee investigating people like POS-obiec & Gaetz’s own crimes while GOP doesn't say a word.

POS-obiec — a Trump fav — collaborated w/white supremacists, neo-fascists & antisemites, producing #propaganda Trump & inner circle publicly celebrate.…
One America News Network (OANN) correspondent Jack POS-obiec tweeted 28 times over a span of ten months links to a website the U.S. government says is backed by Russian intelligence.…

1/. Gross press freedom violations revealed by #PegasusProject can’t be met with impunity

Govts & agencies who’ve spied on journalists must provide answers on this misuse of NSO technology #Pegasus #PegasusSnoopgate @amnesty @globalfreemedia @pressfreedom…
2/. Journalists, MPs & human rights activists were selected as targets for surveillance by authoritarian regimes

#Pegasus is the spyware developed, marketed & licensed to govts around the world by the Israeli company NSO Group.

1/. @MattHancock on #r4today claims he pushed back the GP #DataGrab by two months

@MishalHusain fails to point out that it is 8 MONTHS since the FIRST deadline passed to “opt out” of another NHS patient data sharing scheme!

Our data iseven advertised by the Dept of Trade!👇
2/. The “opt out” from having your NHS patient data shared with pharmaceutical companies was 30 Sept 2020

It didn’t apply "when there is an overridinng public interest...for example, to help manage contagious diseases like #COVID19

So there was NO opt out & NO media coverage.
3/. Last Wednesday #MattHancock claimed that GP’s having exclusive control of patient data is “undemocratic”

Instead he says he wants every citizen to “control their own data” (!?)

That may sound great, but how would that work in practice?

I trust my GP

I don’t trust Hancock

1/. Starting today, the most important courtroom drama the UK has ever seen

The PM challenged on grounds of national security following the findings of the #RussiaReport by
@BenPBradshaw @RhonddaBryant @CarolineLucas @LordStras @AlynSmith & @PJWheatcroft
2/. Last July - after much delay - the #RussiaReport was finally published

It’s findings were truly terrifying

It revealed the govt & intelligence agencies had actively avoided looking for evidence that Russia interfered in the Brexit vote

3/. The implications of the #RussiaReport fed into my ongoing investigation into what appears to be a global #DataGrab for population-wide genomic data

I’d already traced the plan back to 2015

Russian interference in the 2016 #Trump election & #Brexit vote made perfect sense!

1/. Dido Harding officially applies to become CEO of NHS England

“If she gets the job after spaffing £37bn on Test & Trace, it’s blatant corruption & we should report it to the government’s corruption tsar who is - *checks notes* - #DidoHarding’s husband. Oh.” @davidschneider
2/. #DidoHarding will no doubt draft very compelling cover letter, but I’d suggest anyone on the @NHSEngland interview panel looks at this @PrivateEyeNews article

It puts together things that Dido somehow left out of her official CV

Her career appears to be a litany of disaster Image
3/. “Putting Dido Harding in charge of the NHS would be like putting Gavin Williamson in charge of schools” @davemacladd

As well as getting a peerage, Dido
has also won awards: two wooden spoons from @DailyMailUK for “worst customer service in the UK” while she was at @TalkTalk Image

1/. I am at #CogX2021 for @MattHancock’s first public appearance - Live Tweeting from the front row

Oh dear! He’s just started & has lost his voice lost his voice

Short pause...
#MattHancock #COVID19 #coronavirus #Genomics #GenomeUK
2/. Matt’s back!

@MattHancock has regained his voice & is continuing his keynote address at #CogX2021

A friend just DMed:

“Maybe he lost his voice when he you in the front row & realised you’re going to ask him about the links btw #Palantir #FacultyAI & #CambridgeAnalytica!”
3/. #MattHancock says that he thinks that GP’s having exclusive control of patient data is “undemocratic”

Instead he says he wants every citizen to control their own data(!?)

He says people are enthusiastic about sharing their health data as long as privacy is assured #CogX2021

Disturbing footage of @BBCNewsnight’s Nick Watt, being pursued by anti-lockdown protesters

@umairh wrote recently “Britain — the gentle, wise, intelligent, expansive one — was put to the torch. It became a nation afflicted by a fever dream of nationalism”
Such scenes became commonplace in America where #Trump denounced the media as “fake news” or “enemies of the people” (see @AP’s @johnminchillo at the #CapitolRiots👇)

The problem is, once the genie has been let out the bottle, it’s hard to put it back in.
The Reichstag fire in 1933 shows how quickly a modern country can be hijacked & transformed into an authoritarian regime

How they laughed at Hitler in 1923 when he marched on a Munich beer hall with his comedic moustache

Rule by Decree introduced after the fire wasn’t so funny!

1/. It isn’t remotely credible that #Hancock had no idea of the links btw #Palantir & #FacultyAI - who run the NHS #COVID data store - & #CambridgeAnalytica

And yet, had due diligence been done, Palantir wouldn’t have been embedded at the heart of the NHS
2/. It also isn’t remotely credible (or intelligible) that #Cummings had no knowledge of what #Palantir are doing in the NHS “other than on ICU bed capacity”

It also isn’t credible when he claims he thinks #FacultyAI “do not have personalised data at all”
3/. Two questions by about #Palantir & #FacultyAI

Two garbled, nonsensical answers from @MattHancock & @Dominic2306

It’s a shame it’s taken 16 months before these question have finally been asked

It’s a shame the media still ignore it

But as this👇shows, Palantir are central.

“We were guided by the science. We didn't always follow the science" @MattHancock

So @BorisJohnson was lying when he said “we stuck to the science like glue”

Were they following the cod behavioural science of Halpern’s Nudge Unit & the ‘data science’ of #Palantir & #FacultyAI?
2/. On 13/5/20, I broke the #CareHomeScandal

On 2/4/20 the govt had INSTRUCTED hospitals to send people “who may have #COVID19” to care homes WITHOUT TESTING

The govt KNEW about asymptomatic transmission in Jan/Feb 2020

The question is which Minister signed off this directive.
3/. Hancock claims that no one knew about ASYMPTOMATIC SPREAD

This is not true

The govt knew asymptomatic transmission of #COVID19 was likely in Jan & had this confirmed in Feb

SAGE minutes on 28 January 2020 state that early indications suggest there was asymptomatic spread.

All roads lead to genomics

Dido Harding’s was chair of Genomics England

Palantir rptdly taught #CambridgeAnalytica to scrape data

Is the #NHSDataGrab really about about population-wide genomic data?

Complete control?

Bell-Curve eugenicist’s wet dream?
“We could close our eyes & pretend that contrary to all the evidence, #Palantir is a rights-respecting company or we can call this façade what it is: another company placing profit over people, no matter the human cost.” Michael Kleinman, @amnestyusa
The #NHSDataGrab has been underway since Oct 2020 (see Tweet👇)

Why was it ignored for the last 8 months?

News editors, journalists & politicians appeared to be unwilling to report it

It’s great that the #PalantirPlan is now getting wide coverage, but are we already too late?

Tweet from 8 months ago👇on how the govt was sharing our private NHS health data for “life science research” (genomics) with private companies

Now, NHS Digital is “refusing to rule out #Palantir being involved in the datastore from the GP data grab"

I call it the #PalantirPlan. Image
2/. The NHS is the most trusted brand in UK

#CambridgeAnalytica is the least trusted

Yet #Palantir - who rptdly taught Cambridge Analytica how to scrape data - run the NHS #COVID data store along with #FacultyAI, a company that worked for LeaveEU/Cummings & also has links to CA
3/. A year ago, Blair’s ex-Chief of staff – someone who knows about political skulduggery – wrote:

“This looks like the beginning of a rolling coup. It starts with the civil service then moves on to the judiciary & the media”

A coup for health data?

A coup for genomic data?

This week #EddieHearn announced the worst kept secret in sports broadcasting - He's taking his show, Lock Stock, to Mr #Blavatnik first-mover streaming service.

#Thread with a different perspective...🧐 ImageImageImageImage
This is exciting for #Sports fans - Especially #boxing

Lower cost access
More shows
Bigger production

Interesting, it's announced a week after #SundayTimes named the owner of #DAZN as the richest man in the UK (again)!

That rich list is an good starting point to explore Image
We're living through changing times;


What's that got to do with #DAZN & #Sport 🤔

Well, Sport & #Entertainment is big business 💰

It's also used by powerful people to influence Hearts & Minds...

A polling firm linked to #Brexiteer Nigel #Farage faces scrutiny over a short-lived company that its owner used to do political work for Farage’s party and the 12 million-pound ($15.5 million) campaign he fronted to leave the European Union, according to records and interviews.
As part of a broader probe, investigators for the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office are seeking details behind more than £186,000s in payments made by #Farage’s U.K. #Independence Party (#UKIP) to an entity established by the head of the polling firm Survation.

1/. All the claims about our preparations & how everything was in order were basically completely hollow, but we didn’t figure this out until the back end of February”

#Cummings claims he was lied to by Hancock & others about the preparedness for COVID

These were not “mistakes”
2/. “Lots of COBRA meetings are just a bunch of PowerPoints & not very useful”

#Cummings explains why he didn’t bother to attend any of the 5 Crucial COBRA meetings in Feb 2020 & didn’t advise @BorisJohnson to attend either

He sent ‘his friend’ 33-year-old Ben Warner, instead.
3/. #Cummings has referred to Ben Warner a dozen times

Ben isn’t an epidemiologist, virologist or public health expert

His 2014 thesis was “Engineering the properties of magnetic molecules through the interaction with the surface

#Cummings has now mentioned his brother, Marc👇

On Friday, @BorisJohnson welcomes Viktor Orban, a populist leader who speaks of "Muslim invaders" & has pushed #Hungary into what @freedomhouse calls a 'grey zone' between democracy & pure autocracy”

Downing St insists good relations with Budapest "vital"…
“We don't want #Hungary to be a diverse country. We want to be how we were 1,100 years ago," said #Orban in 2019, harking back with nostalgia to that golden era...known as the Dark Ages!

After reshaping the Constitution, judiciary & electoral system, he launched a culture war.
If this sounds eerily familiar, that’s ‘’cos it is

In 2017, Steve Bannon asked @Nigel_Farage 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, Bolsonaro

Check out my new database for FBI 302s aka Mueller Memos. Here's a thread on all 302s that mention #CambridgeAnalytica:

First up, Rick Gates proffer agreement detailing CA's "psychological polling," integration with Conway and Fabrizio, and sensitive information Rick Gates passed along to Konstantin Kilimnik.


Sam Patten deleted emails related to his work for Cambridge Analytica in Mexico after the FBI executed a search warrant of his home.

1/. In 2009, I there was a commotion in the small Tuareg compound where I was staying near Aueglhok, northern Mali

3 boys had chased a deadly snake into a nearby rocky outcrop

Men gathered with sticks & takobas (swords) pushing dry grass into holes & crevices around the outcrop ImageImageImageImage
2/. The men positioned themselves around the outcrop, waiting by each hole with their weapons raised

They then lit the grass

Snakes are v sensitive to smoke & before long the horned viper emerged from rocks to be swiftly battered to death

And I learned how to smoke out a snake ImageImageImageImage
3/. I've been smoking out snakes ever since

Like everything in life, the answers we seek are usually in front of our noses all along

But sometimes - if something is being concealed - you have to smoke it out

Which brings me on to #DominicCummings!

1/. We know SAGE recommended a circuit-breaker lockdown on 21 Sept

We know that on that day, the PM & @RishiSunak met controversial anti-lockdown scientists Anders Tegnell & Prof Heneghan & Prof Gupta

Now we know Prof Gupta advised a full #HerdImmunity strategy. #DISPATCHES
2/. We know that the PM did NOT “stick to the science like glue”

Every epidemiologist & virologist will tell you #HerdImmunity is an ‘outcome’ never a ‘strategy’

And yet the govt briefed @Peston that it was their ‘strategy’ on 12/3/20 & it appears the strategy didn’t go away. Image
3/. Could it be these repeated blunders were not really ‘mistakes’?

@sarahkendzior writes of the Trump admin:

“They cover up crime with scandal & cover up malice with incompetence. They want to project an image of being inept, instead of as having a cruel & well-defined plan.”

1/. A year ago today, I broke the #CareHomeScandal

The reason so many had died in care homes was b/c the govt had INSTRUCTED hospitals to send people “who may have #COVID19” to care homes WITHOUT TESTING

The guidance was issued on 2 April 2020

Yet NO journalist had reported it
2/. As I’ve been doing since March 2020, I shared this widely

15 days later ITV reported it

Whilst I may have “broken” dozens of #COVID19 scandals, I no more “discovered” them than Cook discovered Australia

But by asking WHY these scandals happened, I did make a BIG discovery.
3/. The govt STILL claim that they put “a protective ring“ around care homes

The 2/4/20 guidance proves that, despite knowing about asymptomatic spread, the govt did the opposite

Who issued the instruction?
Was it approved by a Minister?
If so which one?
