PJW: Facebook is Violating General Data Protection Laws by Withholding Reasons for Ban

What is Facebook trying to hide?

Published

Journalist Paul Joseph Watson is accusing Facebook of violating European law by refusing to hand over information about why he was thrown off the monolithic social media platform earlier this year.

Watson believes that Facebook is violating the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), implemented by the European Union in May 2018, with their unwillingness to comply with his request.

Despite Watson’s accusation, Facebook claims on its website that they are in full compliance with the GDPR.

“Data protection is central to the Facebook Companies (Facebook and Messenger, Instagram, Oculus and WhatsApp). We comply with current EU data protection law, which includes the GDPR. Our GDPR preparations were led by our Dublin-based data protection team and supported by the largest cross-functional team in Facebook’s history,” they wrote.

Despite their lip service, Facebook has already been implicated for possible violations of the GDPR throughout Europe. They are facing a potential fine of over $1 billion over their alleged abusive practices in violation of the law.

ZDNet reports:

Facebook could face potentially billions in fines under GDPR for the latest data breach which impacted roughly 50 million accounts.

The security incident, revealed last week, was caused by a vulnerability in Facebook’s code which permitted attackers to steal access tokens.

Access tokens are used to keep Facebook users logged in when they switch over to a public profile view via the “View As” feature.

The breach was detected on September 25. The vulnerability, comprising of three separate bugs, has been resolved and the access tokens of affected users have been reset, alongside an additional 40 million users that were subject to a “View As” lookup over the past 12 months.

It took mere hours before class-action lawsuits were filed against Facebook for failing to protect user data. It seems that it took only a little longer for regulators to become involved.

According to the Data Protection Commission (DPC) for Ireland, the number of affected accounts involved in the latest security incident relating to EU citizens is less than 10 percent of the total 50 million users impacted.

This works out to roughly five million users, which is still a huge number of people who may have had their data accessed or stolen.

If Watson’s interpretation of the GDPR is correct, Facebook may be in more trouble as the social media platform loses prestige and market share for its myriad of privacy violations and censorship policies.

Facebook Instituted Extreme Censorship After Presidential Election to Bury Fraud Whistleblowers

This is the greatest crime in U.S. history.

Published

In the direct aftermath of the election, Facebook instituted brand new draconian censorship measures in order to prevent electoral fraud whistleblowers from having their voices heard on the platform.

The New York Times revealed in an article published on Tuesday how Facebook became Big Brother to enforce the Democrat theft of America:

President Trump was already casting the election as rigged, and stories from right-wing media outlets with false and misleading claims about discarded ballots, miscounted votes and skewed tallies were among the most popular news stories on the platform.

In response, the employees proposed an emergency change to the site’s news feed algorithm, which helps determine what more than two billion people see every day. It involved emphasizing the importance of what Facebook calls “news ecosystem quality” scores, or N.E.Q., a secret internal ranking it assigns to news publishers based on signals about the quality of their journalism.

Typically, N.E.Q. scores play a minor role in determining what appears on users’ feeds. But several days after the election, Mr. Zuckerberg agreed to increase the weight that Facebook’s algorithm gave to N.E.Q. scores to make sure authoritative news appeared more prominently, said three people with knowledge of the decision, who were not authorized to discuss internal deliberations.

The change was part of the “break glass” plans Facebook had spent months developing for the aftermath of a contested election. It resulted in a spike in visibility for big, mainstream publishers like CNN, The New York Times and NPR

As a result of Facebook’s editorial policy to censor whistleblowers, much of the public has been convinced of the legitimacy of an incredibly dubious election marred with improprieties and abnormalities.

Big League Politics reported on the insanity of election night in Detroit after tens of thousands of mystery ballot showed up:

One day after the election, the results are still pending and will likely depend on the rust belt. President Donald Trump holds a strong lead in the state of Michigan, but the city of Detroit and their mail-in and absentee ballots have yet to be officially tallied.

In news that will likely cast further doubt on the election results, tens of thousands of absentee ballots arrived in large U.S. Postal Service boxes at the TCF Center in Detroit, Mich. on Wednesday morning at 3:30 am. The TCF Center, formerly Cobo Hall, is where the absentee ballots are counted for Wayne County, which is the home of Detroit.

Former Michigan state senator Patrick Colbeck wrote that the total number of ballots dumped on the counting board totaled 38,000…

Before the ballots showed up mysteriously at 3:30 am, no ballots had arrived at the TCF Center for over six hours, and many poll workers in the facility sat around with no work to do while getting paid hundreds of dollars by the state of Michigan.

According to Michigan election law, all of these mail-in and absentee ballots had to be submitted before 8pm on Tuesday night in order to be lawfully accepted and counted for the election. This means the city of Detroit potentially sat on these ballots for hours. The white van that arrived had the name of Detroit city clerk Janice Winfrey emblazoned upon it as well as a logo and a phone number. Last month, Winfrey set the stage to drag out the process in an interview with ABC 7 News.

“We’re back in control, and we know that we will have nearly 10,000 poll workers that will be working with us to process ballots on election day, or election week is what we’re calling it now, because we know we’re going to be slow,” she said, adding that she was not going to let “outside influencers” get in the way of her election day schemes.

If the election steal isn’t reversed, Western Civilization is finished, and the Beast System will reign supreme over the world.
