Facebook is seeking to hire employees with national security clearances, which would allow the company to coordinate with Deep State agencies in its quest to censor and remove content posted by its users.
If Facebook goes ahead with this plot, it could further embolden the cause championed by Steve Bannon to hold Facebook to public-utility standards. Currently, Facebook removes a lot of so-called harmful content and “Fake News.” Many users feel that this censorship scheme disproportionately affects supporters of President Donald Trump. The term “getting Zucked” has taken off in right-of-center Facebook circles, referring to the company’s stringent moderating procedures.
“Facebook Inc. is looking to hire people who have national security clearances, a move the company thinks is necessary to prevent foreign powers from manipulating future elections through its social network, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Workers with such clearance can access information classified by the U.S. government. Facebook plans to use these people — and their ability to receive government information about potential threats — to search more proactively for questionable social media campaigns ahead of elections, according to the person, who asked not to be identified because the information is sensitive. A Facebook spokesman declined to comment.
Job candidates like this are often former government and intelligence officials or contractors. The status can carry over to private-sector jobs, as long as the position still requires access to sensitive information. Previously granted clearances become inactive when intelligence workers leave government employment, but they can be reactivated on Facebook’s behalf, the person said.”
Big League Politics recently reported that a major pro-Trump group with 132,000 members was deleted by Facebook with no explanation. After our report and widespread Deplorable outrage, Facebook backed down after seven days and re-instated the group.
“A lot of what we can do is to help create a more civil and productive debate on some of the bigger issues as well,” Zuckerberg told CNN at his Communities Summit in Chicago, indicating that he plans to focus on censoring political content (like he is trying to do in China to get the government to un-block Facebook there). But why does he allow left-wing troll attacks to bring pro-Trump groups to their knees?
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton urged social media platforms to “hurry up” and moderate the kind of content that she thinks helped Trump defeat her in the election.
“The other side was using content that was just flat-out false and delivering it in a very personalized way,” Clinton said at the California-based Code Conference. “If I put myself in the position of running a platform like Facebook, first of all, they’ve got to get back to trying to curate it more effectively,” she said. “Put me out of the equation, they’ve got to help prevent fake news from creating a new reality that does influence how people think of themselves, see the world, the decisions that they make.”
Replying to Clinton’s comment, Schwartz told BLP, “We pleaded with Facebook to deploy admin tools beyond the crude ones they provide, so we could indeed block Macedonian #FakeNews websites, so we could clean up the mess Facebook helped create in our gigantic group; but we were repeatedly ignored. What’s more, I also admin a couple small groups, and the “ask member a question” tool used to screen people who want to join was available over a month ago, while it was just available to us a couple days ago.”
Facebook shareholders recently pressured Zuckeberg to cut down against “Fake News” while taking a jab at President Trump.
Arjuna Capital executive Natasha Lamb defined fake news as “content posed and disseminated with the intent to mislead, not the mainstream media which the [US] President refers to as fake news.” The supposed epidemic “needs to be managed systemically,” Lamb argued, saying that, “A lack of self regulation could incite government regulation.”
Zuckerberg vowed that Facebook has a “special focus on trying to reduce the prevalence of false news in the system.”
Zuckerberg is generating murmurs as a possible presidential candidate against Trump in 2020. Zuckerberg downplayed presidential speculation after his recent very public road trip across America, saying he was merely “doing it to get a broader perspective to make sure we’re best serving our community of almost 2 billion people at Facebook and doing the best work to promote equal opportunity at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.”
The Facebook founder’s Chan Zuckerberg Initiative recently hired Obama campaign veteran David Plouffe and George W. Bush campaign manager Ken Mehlman.
SAD: Former Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale Goes on Fox News to Whine About Being Fired
Parscale is in denial.
Failed former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale has an ax to grind, and he has taken to globalist Fox News to spread nonsense about why he was let go from the campaign earlier this year.
Parscale appeared on “The Story with Martha Maccallum” on Monday where he appeared oblivious and unable to understand exactly why Trump canned him.
“We had a plan. We had a lot of confidence in the plan, and it was unfortunate that we diverged from the plan right as we came down the stretch,” Parscale said.
Parscale made it clear though that he does not accept the fake news that President Trump lost the election. He believes that Trump has a case to overturn the steal based on the documented fraud and anomalies that occurred during the election.
However, Maccallum quickly diverted the conversation back to Parscale’s complaints over his firing.
“I was hurt…I didn’t get a warning sign, really. Nobody asked me to change my plan. Nobody asked me to do anything different. I don’t know exactly why I was removed and why all of a sudden we had to challenge the plan,” he said.
“They paused the plan. Eventually went back to it, but…I’ve had a lot of time to plan,” he added – crediting the success of President Trump in 2016 to the work of himself and Jared Kushner.
A clip from the interview can be seen here:
Former Trump campaign manager Brad @Parscale: “I was removed — I was hurt.”
“I don’t know exactly why I was removed and why all the sudden we had to challenge the plan… They paused the plan.”

Big League Politics reported on Parscale’s gross incompetence and squandering of funds that put President Trump’s campaign in a big hole early in the re-election race:
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale is getting criticized harder than ever after the rally fiasco in Tulsa, Okla. on Saturday.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has bragged about far-left activists using TikTok to trick the campaign into bragging about an inflated number of ticket requests for the rally, which drew considerably less than capacity…
While Ocasio-Cortez wants to brag about TikTok youngsters sabotaging the rally, it was really Parscale’s own incompetence that resulted in the embarrassment…
“I think people liked the myth that teenagers could take down the Trump Death Star, but I would not be surprised that the Trump campaign was seeing those numbers and decided they didn’t need to do follow-up calls because their numbers were so good,” veteran digital staffer Melissa Ryan said about Parscale’s rally snafu.
“If you’re doing campaign data, you should be able to realize when your system is getting gamed. If you’re getting a flood of signups, if your first instinct is to announce it on Twitter rather than check the tires, that’s just incompetence,” Ryan added.
All sides of the Trump movement are apparently getting fed up with Parscale’s incompetence as well. Former Trump 2016 campaign manager Corey Lewandowski spoke out publicly about comedy of errors that were made due to Parscale’s woeful stewardship of the campaign.
“I think a fundamental mistake was made,” Lewandowski said. “Overpromising and underdelivering is the biggest mistake you can make in politics.”
“I lived this as you know, I did this when candidate Trump was running. We won 38 primaries and caucuses under my stewardship, obviously all due to Donald Trump, but we never did something like this,” he continued, referring to the 2016 campaign when he was at the helm.
“And what that means is we have to go back and re-evaluate the system in which people were getting those tickets and determining if they were real, if they were robots, and putting additional protocols in place so this doesn’t happen again,” Lewandowski added.
Even Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, the power couple known as “Javanka,” are angry at Parscale over his failures. Javanka has been close with Parscale, backing up his rise within the Trump White House, since before the 2016 campaign when Parscale was a website builder for Trump with zero political experience.
“Jared and Ivanka are pissed at Brad over promising on crowd size,” a campaign source close to Javanka reportedly said following the rally.
As well-intentioned as he may be, Parscale has shown himself to be a severe liability to the “America First” movement at every turn.
