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.

VIDEO: Indiana Teacher Claims She Was Fired for Exposing Left-Wing ‘Social Emotional Learning’ Scheme
This woman’s story is going viral.
An Indiana teacher released a viral video this week giving riveting testimony about her dismissal from a public school because of her activism efforts against left-wing educational schemes.
“My name is Jennifer, and I am a public school teacher who is also the founder of Purple for Parents Indiana,” she said. “I started Purple for Parents here to expose the truth about Red for Ed, the NEA and the radical agenda behind it.”
She believes that the National Education Association (NEA) is involved in a scheme to not only elect Democrats, but also indoctrinate and brainwash young minds through a sneaky overhaul of the curriculum in public schools.
“One of these hot topic issues is a push to change school culture through social emotional learning programs,” she explained.
“My school is currently in the third year of its SEL program called ‘Leader in Me.’ It is used to educate what they call the whole child through language manipulation, role playing, and influence of morals and values. As a teacher and a parent, I find this program to be very disturbing because these things should be taught by parents,” she said.
Jennifer said she was fired last Friday from her school as a result of exposing this agenda, based on a Facebook post she made the previous Monday exposing the agenda. Jennifer said that the school claimed she was “making them look bad” and being “untruthful” with her post.
“I want everyone to know that everything that I said was the truth. I believe parents should be aware of what’s going on, and my concern is truly because I care about children and parental rights,” she said.
Jennifer’s main concern with the SEL program is that it is being administered without parental consent, and parents have no ability to opt their children out.
“After being fired for speaking the truth, I immediately realized I can no longer trust the school to care fairly for my daughter, and I immediately unenrolled her,” she said. “I am deeply worried about what is going on in the public schools, and the measures that they will take to silence the truth.”
Jennifer had to choke back tears in the video when recalling how she was fired without being able to say goodbye to the students she cared for so much.
“I am an extremely hard-worker who is always kind and professional. It hurts me that I had to leave without saying goodbye to my students, and I have no idea what reason they will give for my absence,” she said.
Jennifer urged people to share her video to help raise awareness of what is going on in the school system, as leftists become more bold in their exploitation of the youth.
Her entire video address can be seen here:
Educational experts refer to SEL programs as “government-sponsored personality manipulation” and note how they cannot be tested for effectiveness due to their total subjectivity.
While Education Secretary Betsy Devos claims that Common Core is dead, the underlying principles behind the standards remain firmly in place. Exposing the agenda can have serious consequences.
