Facebook Suffers Huge Stock Crash After Cambridge Analytica Caught Using Stolen Data

The world’s largest social media company Facebook suffered the biggest one-day drop of its stocks by seven percent on Wall Street Monday in four years following reported data leakage of its 50 million users for alleged political purposes, the Associated Press (AP) reported.

The Facebook loss came after U.S. and British media reported that the data of more than 50 million Facebook users were inappropriately used by a British data analysis company, Cambridge Analytica, in activities allegedly connected with U.S. President Donald Trump during his 2016 campaign.

Trump’s campaign reportedly used the firm’s data during the primaries but not during the general election, and Federal Election Commission numbers showed the firm collected 5.9 million U.S. dollars in 2016 from Trump’s campaign, California-based The Mercury News daily reported Monday.

The AP quoted Facebook as saying last week that Cambridge Analytica received user data from a Facebook app years ago that purported to be a psychological research tool, though the firm wasn’t authorized to have that information.

Facebook admitted that an estimated 270,000 people had downloaded the app and shared their personal details with it.

Last Friday, Facebook said in an official post that it had suspended “Strategic Communication Laboratories (SCL), including their political data analytics firm, Cambridge Analytica,” from its website.

It said the two companies had failed to delete user data acquired in 2015 in violation of Facebook rules.

Last Saturday, Facebook said that claim that this is a data breach is completely false, arguing that people knowingly provided their information.

“No systems were infiltrated, and no passwords or sensitive pieces of information were stolen or hacked,” Facebook said in its official blog post.

Mercury News said Monday that a U.S. senator is demanding that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the abuse of user data for U.S. campaign activities.

How Ronna Romney McDaniel Bribed Her Way Into Brigham Young University

It was the late 90, and Ronna Romney, named after her great grandmother, was looking for a college to attend. She had though she was shoe-in to BYU, because she was a legacy and everyone knew her father and uncle.

However her graded were less than stellar, with a grade-point average of a a C. She additionally hadn’t done much activities, and the school felt they would be criticized if they let her in. Her school shut down a few years ago, and we couldn’t reach anyone there to comment.

She called her uncle Mitt immediately, according to a family member who shared the story with me over Twitter and got my attention.

And he immediately got into action defending his favorite niece, according to the relative.

He called the President of BYU and had a conversation with him: His niece really wanted to go to BYU, and was there something he could do?

Cecil O. Samuelson, a friend of Mitt, made it clear that a donation of a million or so, and a renaming of their business institute to a Romney would make sense, especially if the niece was a business major.

So Mitt, thinking still of doing a Presidential campaign in 2000 or Gubernatorial Campaign, decided he would give a few million here and there to help the University — and it would help his reputation enormously to be seen more than a business raider.

Strangely, the next week, Ronna Romney was accepted into BYU.

She wasn’t much of a student, and decide to take the English program, feeling it would “be easy. She graduated with a BA in english a few years later, without honors or any notation.

So, is the person who claims to be a relative of the Romney’s telling the truth? Sure looks like the timeline works, that the donation happened exactly as she was making choices for colleges, and happened seemingly only after she was accepted in BYU.

Lucy Parsons Project Racists Protest Pakistanian Middle Eastern Cafe in San Fransisco

Looks like the GOP can’t help funding fake “progressive” organizations under the guise of fighting for black rights. What’s the new “cause?” A half dozen white women have been daily protesting a local Middle Eastern Cafe owned by a Manny Yekutiel, a man of Pakistani Jewish Descent whose family fled persecution in Pakistan.

Manny Yekutiel opened his eponymous Manny’s in November, calling the Middle Eastern cafe and restaurant in downtown San Francisco a “civic social gathering space.” His goal for the Mission District eatery was “to create a central, accessible and affordable place to go to become a better informed and more involved citizen,” he told the San Francisco Examiner.

Manny’s has earned praise for hosting talks with speakers on issues ranging from Black Lives Matter to urban sustainability.

But Yekutiel, who is Jewish, is being protested weekly, accused of espousing “racist, Zionist, pro-Israel ideals.” His café has been vandalized and painted with anti-Semitic and anti-Israel slogans over and over again — mainly by White racists.

The only allegation seemingly against him is that he is Jewish. Yekutiel has even said he does not support everything the Israeli government does and disagrees with its treatment of the Palestinians — and has many friends who are Palestinian.

Yekutiel reportedly has met nearly all the requirements of United to Save the Mission, a coalition of more than a dozen neighborhood nonprofits and activist groups. They include bilingual signage and staff, moderate prices (a cup of coffee is $1.75) and food prepared by a nonprofit employing homeless, formerly incarcerated and low-income community members, who earn all the food revenue. Community groups can use the space for free.

Trump Promotes “Hitler Lover” Buchanan

Despite claiming 20 years ago that Pat Buchanan was a “Hitler Lover,” the President is now quoting him in tweets.

Last week, Buchanan posted an article on the anti-immigration site Vdare.com that implored Trump to declare a national emergency on the southern border, “because mass migration from the global South, not climate change, is the real existential crisis of the West.” Trump has publicly considered such a declaration as a way to go around Congress in order to secure funding for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

On Sunday, the president quoted a portion of Buchanan’s post in a pair of tweets. The first said, “‘The Trump portrait of an unsustainable Border Crisis is dead on,'” and then listed a number of immigration-related crime statistics. Buchanan did not cite the source of the data, but the context indicated it was from the Trump administration.

In 1999, Trump called Buchanan a “Hitler lover” and said it was “incredible that anybody could embrace this guy.” Buchanan, who has often been accused of expressing racist and anti-Semitic views, at the time was seeking the Reform Party’s nomination for president.

“Look, he’s a Hitler lover,” Trump said on “Meet the Press” in October 1999. “I guess he’s an anti-Semite. He doesn’t like the blacks. He doesn’t like the gays. It’s just incredible that anybody could embrace this guy.”
