A new report from The Free Thought Project exposes the truth about what many independent media outlets have been saying for years: The world’s most popular social media platform, Facebook, is a hotbed of deep state corruption and public manipulation.
While the baby of Mark Zuckerberg is often described as a “private company,” the fact of the matter is that Facebook is actually a massive government psy-op run by various deep state swamp creatures – many of whom previously worked within the Obama administration.
For instance, Facebook’s censorship head, also known as “Head of Cybersecurity Policy,” is a man named Nathaniel Gleicher who previously prosecuted cybercrimes at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Gleicher also worked as Director for Cybersecurity Policy at the National Security Council under Obama.
Joel Benenson, a former top adviser to Obama and chief strategist for failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, also now works at Facebook – as does Aneesh Raman, Obama’s former speechwriter who’s now in charge of Facebook’s “economic impact programming.”
There are many others as well, including:
• Joel Kaplan, Facebook’s Vice President of Public Policy, who worked for George W. Bush as the White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy
• Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s Chief Operations Officer, who used to work in the United States Treasury Department under Bill Clinton
• Kate Patchen, Facebook’s Litigation Counsel, who previously worked in the Department of Justice
• Meredith Carden, head of Facebook’s “News Integrity Team,” who worked in the Office of the First Lady under Obama
• Sarah Feinberg, head of Facebook’s Communication Team, who was Special Assistant to the President under Obama
• Joe Lockhart, Vice President of Global Communications at Facebook, who worked as Press Secretary under Bill Clinton
In essence, Facebook has become a who’s-who of government swamp creatures, most of whom were Obama’s cronies previously – and these are the people deciding what constitutes “real” versus “fake” news.
“It appears the government is using Facebook – the world’s largest social media company – to sway public opinion,” writes Jeff Charles for Liberty Nation.
“The company has employed a significant number of former officials in positions that grant them influence over what content is allowed on the platform.”
In case you didn’t know, Facebook also recently formed a partnership with a neoconservative “think tank” known as the Atlantic Council, which is tied to the pharmaceutical industry, the military-industrial complex, and to the federal government itself.
The Atlantic Council, The Free Thought Project discovered, plays a major role in deciding what content is allowed to be published and shared on Facebook, and what content isn’t. And the Atlantic Council is funded in large part by the United States government, it’s important to note.
“It is a telltale sign of a corrupt industry or company when they create a revolving door between themselves and the state,” writes Matt Agorist for The Free Thought Project.
“Just like Monsanto has former employees on the Supreme Court and Pharmaceutical industry insiders move back and fourth from the FDA to their companies, we found that Facebook is doing the same thing.”
David Recordon has similarly reported on the revolving door between the federal government and Facebook, emphasizing the incredible amount of political influence that’s wrapped up into the day-to-day functionality of Facebook.
“… there are dozens of former Obama staffers, advisers, and campaign associates who quite literally fill Facebook’s ranks,” Agorist adds. “It is no wonder the platform has taken such a political shift over the past few years.”
