Social media IS surveillance: Platforms like Facebook and Twitter are infested with federal agents from the CIA and FBI
By Ethan Huff // Dec 21, 2022

Almost immediately after Donald Trump was elected president in 2016, tech giants including Facebook and Twitter started aggressively hiring former intelligence agents from the likes of the FBI and the CIA to police their social media platforms in pursuit of truth so they could eradicate it.

We recently learned that Twitter hired on at least 15 former FBI agents during that time, while Facebook brought in at least 115 people who formerly worked for the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, and DHS.

As Trump was being sworn in, the FBI was frantically forming a Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF) to police the internet in the new age of Trump, which threatened the existing globalist power structures that have ruled this country for many decades.

In Part 6 of the Twitter Files, investigative journalist Matt Taibbi uncovered evidence showing massive coordination between the FBI (and its FITF) and Twitter between 2020 and 2022. We now know that Facebook was similarly colluding with the deep state to try to silence all truth.

At least 10 former intelligence agents were hired within Facebook's "Trust & Safety" department, this being the department where Facebook focused its efforts to fight "misinformation."

One of them is named Aaron Berman, or "Aaron B. (He/Him)," according to his public LinkedIn profile. This guy claims to have worked at the CIA for 17 years before joining Facebook's misinformation team.

"Aaron states that his experience at the CIA included writing President's Daily Brief, leading briefings for Cabinet members, senior NSC officials & members of Congress," tweeted the "Name Redacted" Twitter account.

"On Twitter, Aaron is followed by Yoel Roth & admits he is friends with Trust & Safety people at Twitter. Was Facebook coordinating with Twitter on info-sharing to censor posts they deem as 'misinfo?'"

(Related: According to former White House covid adviser Scott Atlas, tech platforms like Facebook and Twitter also played a critical role in the unleashing of covid pandemic tyranny.)

Facebook interfered with foreign elections, too

On Feb. 25, 2021, Berman tweeted about how Facebook's policies regarding covid misinformation were guided by "health authorities" who instructed the tech platform as to which information is "true" and which information is "false."

During a virtual YouTube discussion about the matter, Berman further admitted that Facebook works with a "global network of over 80 fact checker organizations" that direct the company about which posts require "reduced distribution," "warning labels," and "shadow-banning."

Facebook apparently goes to great lengths, according to Berman, to censor critical information about covid protocols like "vaccines" to ensure the narrative is controlled as much as possible.

Berman also played a role in censoring truthful information about foreign elections, including those in Brazil and the Philippines.

"Here's how Meta is preparing for the Philippines election, including combatting misinfo by removing some content, partnering with fact checkers, and helping users find voter registration information."

Then we have the Russia-Ukraine war narrative, which Facebook (Meta) heavily controls in support of Ukraine's power structure and against Vladimir Putin and his military operation there.

When it comes to the matter of climate change, Berman announced on Nov. 1, 2021, the release of an update from the "Meta Newsroom" highlighting changes the platform was making at the time to combat "climate misinfo."

"Specifically on the misinfo side, we partner with more than 80 independent fact-checking organizations globally to review and rate content, including content about climate change," Berman tweeted.

"When they rate content as false, we reduce its distribution so fewer people see it and we show a warning label with more context. And we apply penalties to people who repeatedly share false information."
