Manipulations” to Influence Election Results
By Peter Koenig
influence election results? Ridiculous! That may have
been a thing of the past.
Or not even. It’s
an evil invention of the evil losers of the evil Hillary
camp, supported by a criminal departing President Obama,
who will be leaving office, of course, not with a bang,
not even with a whimper, but with a disgrace for his
nation and for the truth loving people all around the
What a legacy the
first African-american US President leaves behind – the
architect of thousands of indiscriminate and illegal
drone killings, by starting five new wars, being
currently involved in seven unjustified and illegal
armed conflicts around the globe, killing millions of
people and, finally, as a miserable liar.
Already back in
August 2016, NSA whistleblower William Binney stated on
Aaron Klein Investigative Radio that
Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) server was not
hacked by Russia, but by a disgruntled US
intelligence worker.” Binney went on to proclaim
that “the NSA has all of Clinton’s deleted emails,
and the FBI could gain access to them if they so
that there was no need for Trump to ask the Russians for
the emails, he could just ask the FBI or NSA to hand
So, one of
President Obama’s last deeds in this illustrious office
of the Presidency of the United States, is lying to the
American people and lying to the world. – Bravo!
behind Donald Trump’s ‘surprise’ election may lay
somewhere else. It’s called Psychometrics, a
method based on massive behavioral data collection of
people to be targeted by propaganda, or more accurately
expressed by mind manipulation. This PR technology has
been marketed and applied by a small London-based data
analysis firm, called ‘Cambridge Analytica’.
firm first worked for
Republican Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz, U.S. Senator
from Texas, who was little known by most Americans.
Cambridge Analytica increased his popularity to 40%, but
not enough to win the Republican nomination. The data
analysis firm was then hired by Trump’s campaign team –
successfully as it appears. In this 11-minute YouTube,
Alexander Nix, CEO of Cambridge Analytica, explains the
method on the case of Ted Cruz.
As reported by
the Swiss newspaper, ‘Tagesanzeiger’ (TA),
Psychometrics, or Psychographics, as such is not new. It
was developed in the 1980s, as a scientific tool to help
determine people’s personalities.
concluded that every trait of a person’s character can
be categorized into five personality dimensions. The
system is called OCEAN, for Openness,
Consciousness, level of
(compatibility) and Neuroticism.
In this regard,
Cambridge Analytica’s CEO claims that based on about 70
Facebook-Likes, they can determine with 95% accuracy
whether a person is black or white, with 88% accuracy
whether he/she is homosexual and with 85% accuracy
whether he /she is a Democrat or Republican.
‘Likes’ he knows a person better than his / her parents,
and with 300, better than his / her partner. These are
impressive claims. But Are they correct? Many critics
dispute them, mainly arguing there is no proof that
targeted people (i) actually do vote, and (ii) that they
vote according to their profile. In any case, it would
be difficult to verify to what extent Cambridge
Analytica helped Donald Trump to win the elections.
Cambridge Analytica also claims credit for the BREXIT
entries are not the only input to “Big Data”. In
addition to tens of thousands of ‘likes’ collected, data
on peoples’ google browsing, eating and consumer habits,
what cosmetics and rock bands they like, whether they
are drug, cigarettes and / or alcohol addicts, or just
users, what type of alcohol, brand or type of car they
prefer, their banking customs, even the speed with which
they remove their cell phone from their pockets when it
rings – and-so-on – are also entered into “Big Data”. We
are indeed living in the age of no holds barred as far
as disrespect for privacy and universal data collection
is concerned. As long as we let it happen, it will only
thousands of people are literally being ‘profiled’ for
targeted and personalized propaganda messages to
convince segments of people and individuals of
think-alikes to vote for or against a candidate. The TA
concludes, that’s why Trump’s campaign messages were
often contradictory and confusing, difficult to
establish a clear picture of where he really stands.
This is still the case today.
Cambridge Analytica, in the ‘olden days’, social
research firms had to get people filling-in cumbersome
questionnaires, based on demographics. Today this
approach is outdated. We have internet and Facebook. Not
all women, blacks, Hispanics, gays, straights – vote
alike. This false assumption was still used by Hillary’s
campaign and demonstrated to be deceptive. Even though
Hillary had about 2.7 million more popular votes, she
lost the election by electorates. Cambridge Analytica
worked on swing states. Within these States, they
targeted specifically the ‘vulnerable’ or undecided, or
motivated those with no intention to vote to get off
their butts and cast their vote for Trump, or against
Hillary, depending on their profile.
Haitians in Florida, who had no intention to vote, but
would have leaned Democratic, i.e. for Hillary, were
targeted with propaganda describing the corruption of
the Clinton Foundation and how the Clintons ruined
Haiti’s economy. So – they went to vote for Trump as an
anti-Clinton vote. At least this was the plan and
apparently, it worked in sufficient cases to be
will never know for sure to what extent Cambridge
Analytica has contributed to Trump’s election win, we
can be certain that the method, inexpensive as compared
to demographic profiling, will be used masively in the
future, most certainly in the upcoming elections in
France and the Netherlands (Spring 2017) and Germany
for President Putin (I must have said this many times
before) to give Mr. Obama and all the people around him,
a lesson on how to behave like a statesman and not like
a losing looney what he is.
did not retaliate Obama’s flagrant lie-based expelling
of 35 Russian diplomats with families just before New
Year’s Eve, in full preparation of year-end festivities.
Instead he invited US diplomats in Moscow and their kids
to celebrate the year-end festivities with their Russian
colleagues. Obama’s act of cowardice was framed as
‘sanction’ for ‘Russian interference in US elections’ –
a blatant lie. Mr. Obama, the master puppet of the deep
state that pulls the strings on his lips and mind – he,
(nominally) President Obama, knows it’s a sham.
