Handy things to know: Someone inside the Department of Justice in the US has talked to the New York Post and says that Facebook spied on Americans who doubted Joe Biden or the election, and gave that information to the FBI “outside due process”. A full FBI investigation often followed the “leads” that came from Facebook.
Despite the mountain of data they found no domestic terrorists — not one criminal or violent Trump supporter — only full blooded patriots. They must have been disappointed. “It was a waste of our time” said an insider.
So, Facebook has become a wing of the Government. Facebook needs Big Government to protect their Section 230 legal loophole and Big Government needs Facebook to protect the voters from the ugly truth. Nice racket if you can get it.
The old Sovinformburo must have longed for a searchable database of private conversations. If only the USSR had Facebook.
As the commenter Deplorable at the NY Post says “First thing is Facebook must be told that they can no longer call their private messenger private. “
Thank goodness for the New York Post. Thank goodness for brave whistleblowers.

Facebook has been spying on the private messages and data of American users and reporting them to the FBI if they express anti-government or anti-authority sentiments — or question the 2020 election — according to sources within the Department of Justice.
Under the FBI collaboration operation, somebody at Facebook red-flagged these supposedly subversive private messages over the past 19 months and transmitted them in redacted form to the domestic terrorism operational unit at FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, without a subpoena
So Facebook found the right keywords, notified the FBI and gave them “leads” with some parts of the private conversations. The FBI then got the subpoenas to officially get the conversations and investigate them. But even the covert surveillance teams found nothing.
Facebook says the claims are “just wrong”. The FBI neither confirmed nor denied it worked with Facebook.
Of course Facebook would never do anything like that — says Facebook comunication expert who used to work for Obama:
These claims are just wrong. The suggestion we seek out peoples’ private messages for anti-government language or questions about the validity of past elections and then proactively supply those to the FBI is plainly inaccurate and there is zero evidence to support it,” said Sackin, a DC-based crisis response expert who previously worked for Planned Parenthood and “Obama for America” and now leads Facebook’s communications on “counterterrorism and dangerous organizations and individuals.”
Notably, the insider says that Facebook and the FBI were only looking at conservative right-wing people, not potential Antifa terrorists. It was a biased fishing trip
One whistleblower seems to have been inspired to come forward after the raid at Mar-a-lago. One breach too far?
Unrest has been building among the rank and file across the FBI and in some parts of the DOJ for months. It came to a head after the raid last month on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida.
“The most frightening thing is the combined power of Big Tech colluding with the enforcement arm of the FBI,” says one whistleblower. “Google, Facebook and Twitter, these companies are globalist. They don’t have our national interest at heart.”
As I said in 2019, their new algorithms to combat misinformation were going to bore the world. Facebook announced it would limit the spread of links that were “more prominent on Facebook than across the web as a whole” — thus ensuring Facebook would propagate only Groupthink:
So that pretty much rules out Facebook spreading the word of whistleblowers, rebels, new theories, suppressed ideas, oppressed people and anything controversial, interesting or not completely predictable. Facebook seems to want to transform itself into a mumsie discussion board of old news and approved memes with all the thrill of an in-flight safety lecture.
Thus, Facebook will become a mirror of the permitted, official, authorized web. Expect their ratings to adjust accordingly.
Something isn’t working well for Facebook (Meta). Here’s the market CAPITALIZATION:
Couldn’t happen to a nicer crew. The top three shareholders of Meta are Zuckerberg, then Vanguard and BlackRock.
That would be Meta as in metastatic…Read it all at the New York Post.
Tell your friends and children that Facebook Direct Messaging is direct to the FBI.
Big Gov protects the Big Tech monster from market competition — and in return Big Tech protects Big Government from political competition. Democrats have outsourced political repression of their enemies to cabals of private companies.
