Facebook documents offer a treasure trove for Washington’s antitrust war

…from Politico

[ Editor’s Note: The FTC-Facebook battle is on. Once again, one whistle blower made all the difference, which is why we have to encourage and protect them.

They are the tip of the spear if we are ever to remove the boot from our necks from those business entities that decide it is their right to rule over our information flow by any and all means necessary.

This going is going to be a long and drawn out battle, which Facebook can easily afford. It needs the anti-trust treatment in terms of getting broken up. But that is just the first step.

Closet dictator Jim Dean would have all social media platforms only working in partnership with the people’s trustees watching over their operations, and by that mean in real time, on location every day, permanently.

They would be constantly on scene, going to all the meetings, and having access to any and all code so any shenagigans could be nipped in the bud and those responsible banned from any social media work for their life times, after their prison term is over.

The biggest hurdle in doing this would be the main intelligence entities that are playing ball with the social media giants on ‘their’ issues, and could not care less what else they are doing in other areas. These platforms are huge intel psop operation tools, with one of the biggest examples being regime change operations.

The Egyptian revolution was a home run, the star of what the medium could be used for put on public display. The tyrant was thrown out, replaced by the mullahs, which were then targeted as fair game to be taken out in turn. As Gordon would say, “Welcome to how the world really works.”

The internet was an American creation, and paid for by us, but was later hijacked from ‘we the people’, who are now just along for the ride. Where we got short circuited is the agencies like the FTC are answerable to Congress, but then Congress can be bought, and it is, on almost a daily basis as it it a ‘pay to play’ institution.

Unfortunately we are in the middle of a political hurricane, and not the one day kind. Attention span for items like the long term dealing/control over social media companies is low on the interest pole.

Godbless the whistleblowers. They are the best defense, or possible defense I should say, that we have to unmask those who rule over us with hidden agendas… Jim W. Dean ]

The Internet is the New Gutenberg press which is truly revolutionary and is creating a strong, emerging populism in America and much of the World. Populism is antagonistic to Globalism and will destroy the Globalist’s NWO agenda unless stopped. Many insiders believe that the Internet’s popularity will assure the destruction of the Globalist’s NWO Agenda and the repatriotization of American Intel and Law Enforcement.

First published … October25, 2021

Facebook likes to portray itself as a social media giant under siege — locked in fierce competition with rivals like YouTube, TikTok and Snapchat, and far from the all-powerful goliath that government antitrust enforcers portray.

…Previously unpublished reports and presentations collected by Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen show in granular detail how the world’s largest social network views its power in the market, at a moment when it faces growing pressure from governments in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere.

The documents portray Facebook employees touting its dominance in their internal presentations — contradicting the company’s own public assertions and providing potential fuel for antitrust authorities and lawmakers scrutinizing the social network’s sway over the market.

…Facebook’s goal, employees said in a 2021 presentation, is to be a “super app” that consumers use for everything from sharing life moments with friends and building community to reading the news and watching entertaining videos.

…“This is very, very strong support for the core story underneath” the FTC’s case, said a former agency staffer who reviewed the documents for POLITICO and spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid influencing the agency’s litigation. “There’s a lot to regret in these documents if you are Facebook.”
