Prescient Matt Drudge in 2015: “don’t get into this false sense that you are an individual when you’re on Facebook. No you’re not! You’re a pawn in their scheme”…

Ever since the Facebook data-privacy issues surfaced I’ve been thinking back to one of the rare Matt Drudge interviews we noted back in 2015.   Drudge was warning about how on-line revenue would be weaponized by Google; and issues surrounding social media platforms selling and controlling you as a product. Drudge’s warning was prescient:

Drudge added, “Now if you think of that setup, how rare that is. Because everybody is so hungry for referrals, for likes. I don’t need to be liked. I don’t need to be liked at all.”

Throughout the lengthy interview, Drudge repeatedly warned Americans that they have become confined on the Internet into the “playgrounds” of massive corporations.

“This is ghetto. This is corporate,” he said of social media. “They are taking your energy and you get nothing in return!”

“I’m just warning this country that — don’t get into this false sense that you are an individual when you’re on Facebook. No you’re not! You’re a pawn in their scheme,” Drudge added. (link)

    Great find!

    History allows that Matt Drudge has the best political instincts in our time.

    I’ll never forget that Drudge was the first famous conservative influencer to get on the Trump train. Hannity was second.

      Michael Savage may have been before Matt. Savage was on WJR between 4pm and 6 pm weekdays. He “red-pilled” Michiganders driving home from work. Huge market; Savage contributed to the Michigan/Trump victory. Savage’s phrase Language/borders/culture!
      Note, right after the election, WJR did not renew his contract.

          In the 2008 campaign, I was ranting to my wife: what each party needs is one candidate to come out and say what they stand for. FOR.

          If they are a Dem, say this..
          If a Repub, say this…

          Get away from the xeroxed statements, the focus-group polling, etc.

          I was ranting: if someone does this, they will sweep the party. Either party.

          Trump swept the Repubs.

          The Dems are lining up Biden. Plus a handful more just in case – to see what polls well…remember, you have to grab two regions – a yank and a Texan, etc. …But a genuine American could pop out and claim GENUINE AMERICAN, and wipe the Dem field…

I like what he has done so far and one thing I think people need to remember is that the guy you see on television is not the guy people negotiate with in private. That is a different animal. But you cannot help but love the man because in general, he is doing what he promised during the campaign.

I hope people note, especially Alex Jones bashers, that both Drudge and Trump appear on and are long time followers of Infowars. When he won, President Trump made sure that his long time friend, Dr. Corsi, got a WH press pass as Infowars correspondent.

        Yes, I agree…and I agreed with Stephen Miller when he said this is the chance of a lifetime (to elect Trump and actually change the corruption). Trump is fighting a mighty war…it’s much worse than I thought it would be. I frequently tweet him just to remind him how much he is appreciated.

        I deleted a lot of my info off FB yesterday but I’m still on there so I can see family activities. But really dislike making that twit rich just so I can look at family and friend’s photos. And then some people can barely go to the grocery store without telling everyone about it. Sheesh!

I made sure to get my children interested in many films on this list early (among others – my daughter at 4 years old used to insist that her favorite film was “Treasure of the Sierra Madre”) because now they recognize crappy story telling in modern films vs well-crafted film-making. They also clearly reject gratuitous violence, sex and stupidity. I believe we have to be responsible stewards for youngsters about what represents quality in everything. Full stop. Your list proves you absorbed that lesson somewhere. Thanks for sharing: I’ll be using it.

  4. There’s no reason someone couldn’t write an open source version of Facebook that isn’t controlled by any central actor.

    The problem is finding a way to host the content in a decentralized way. Once we crack that nut, Facebook is finished.

    Similar to BitTorrent, where social media content would be hosted on a distributed network of users.

      There’s an alternative to Youtube out there called BitChute that let’s you upload videos in a bit-torrent fashion rather than having servers. I strongly suspect that will ultimately be the next big step in the internet as a whole, in which everyone is basically keeping up their own part of the internet once smatphones and what have you can hold hundreds of gigs or even terabytes on their phones. That will be a BIG game changer because it’ll effectively decentralize the internet. Very smart people who thumb their nose at authority of any kind are going to make sure that’s it’s hard as hell for anybody to spy on you in the future. Count on it.

        the other side of the coin from privacy (what users write) is censorship (what users read)

        a decentralized open source platform would prevent lefties at Facebook/Google from censoring/curating content

        Have we become so insecure that we have to cling to a cell phone 18 hours a day everywhere we are and then share every thing about our personal lives w/the world. I have NEVER and will NEVER use any type of social media. Zuckerburg was correct when he said dumb fks. use facebook.

        If I had youngsters I would never allow them to be on facebook and I would not let them have a smart phone. They would have the cheapest cell phone on the mkt. w/100 mins. purchased (no monthly plan) and would use it only for emergencies and to check in w/parents or for parents to check in w/them.

            Yes, peer pressure is insidious. I think parents have to start w/teaching their children about peer pressure at a very young age. There’s ways to teach them, and a good dose of Christianity mixed in w/the teaching helps. When the process is done properly, it instills character, self confidence and a respect for others.

            It used to be that teachers and coaches would be cognizant of peer pressure and they took steps to diminish it as much as possible. I don’t think that exists today. Not implying that you did not teach your children properly. It’s really tough in today’s culture and there’s not many readily available models to use to help parents.

            The church used to be a good source but even our mainstream religious orgs. and churches have abandoned the word of God for a watered down version that offends no one. God did not want his children to drop out of the culture and not have a voice in it, and he surely did not want us to assimilate into that culture. Unfortunately, most of our churches, teachers and role models and pastors have assimilated.

What people seem to forget is the fact that when many of us old-timers were in high school (before 1999) people didn’t get shot in school and by and large schools were safe places. We had plenty of guns, got them as presents (real and pretend) so something has changed in our culture to create the in-school chaos we see today and it’s not the guns although it appears that puppet Hogg and some of corporate America would like to brainwash us into thinking otherwise.

Even on school or government property. No one ever thought about taking the gun and shooting up any place.

      I totally agree!

      One aspect that some are not mentioning but is probably most important is the aspect of “time” itself! I like to call it “time robbers”! I am currently working on a book about the dangers of media, and this one aspect is something I have been researching for a Long time in relation to social media, mobile devices and MSM itself and it influences the behaviours of people! It wasn’t until I heard Tucker Carlson mentioned that smart phones ruined an entire generation that I was ahead of the curve in realising what was going on long before he brought attention to it.

      1st) smart phones and the apps are designed with predatory functions to target human addictive behaviours. Such as games, social media etc. I like to use the analogy of eating empty calories such as potato chips, or candy, they taste good but provide no real value of nutrition. Same with addictive apps! Games are fun to play, but time is being wasted as a result!

      2nd) online search’s done by desktop computers by people are also a target but with a different tool set being used such as algorithms intended to be suggestive to the user, or manipulative to go to other sites to satisfy further surfing indulgence of curiosity. This also includes retail shopping and the ease of satisfying needs of purchasing! Amazon seized in this and made out like bandits as a result!

      3) online platforms like YouTube, and other entities to provide a way for people to be heard or self promote their brand is another way where narcissistic behaviours are exploited. The other elephant in the room that got covered up pretty quickly was that Google and YouTube were funding terrorism indirectly by making such platforms available and are using this as an excuse to implement censoring policies on users for so called questionable content to cover their dark secret for fear of unwanted scrutiny of this particular issue! Google has blood on their hands!

      4) MSM itself! Look at news yesterday and today to see how much has changed! The one element and target is fear itself in which news orgs like Fixnews, and the rest of legacy media prey on this human behaviour for the ratings race! People watch because they can’t help themselves to satisfy their need to be informed, to be entertained or for better or for worse to be invoked to think about a certain subject matter. This is why news orgs can no longer be trusted to deliver true news anymore due their priorities for profit over content!

      Each one of these aspects can be explored deeply to reveal more truths and I don’t have enough space to write here, hence the fact I am writing a book about it. However, my point in all that I just outlined is that people’s time is being taken without anything in return. So much time that people spend on their phones or computers that they don’t realise that it is actually contributing to their own demise and having detrimental effects in their own productivity and metal facilities to the point it is becoming debilitating. After all Enstein predicted that technology would make people dumber not smarter. That is what the elite who are part of the larger tech corps objective is, to control the masses by getting inside heads and being in control of time. On the latter, one has to ask themselves honestly how much time do they spend indulging in these platforms or watching TV in order to self assess what of their own lives is being wasted that can otherwise be used to improve their lot in life and be more productive and creative?

      In one aspect human behaviour is predictable and is quantifiable in the age of data collection and analytics which if one really thinks about this from an objective stand point is being used against the people who are doing the consuming!

      Lastly I leave with this one thought in what this all means for humanity and the discourse we are currently on:

      “Technology did a great job of connecting the world but equally did a good job of disconnecting all the people”

        “I like to call it “time robbers”

        You are absolutely right. Please let us know when that book is done. I do not have any mindless “games” or apps downloaded on my smart phone. I did not even have a cell phone until March 2016, I had to buy a smart phone to help with the DJT campaign volunteers to run canvassing apps.

        For the two months prior to that I was using my mother’s smart phone, which she just had as a collective family phone. Prior to that I only used it for a day at a time when I went out on fishing trips, or to use the camera feature. After taking the phone off to NH & SC, my younger brother could not stand to be with out the phone for Pinterest and fascistbook for a few days (he did not want to use my computer while I was away). So he took over the account from my mother and I got my own.

        Now that my phone is paid off, I am being bombarded with offers to “upgrade”. No thank you.

          I will sure to do that! It has been a long and tiring process, but I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel for all the hard work I put in thus far.

          You are one of the lucky one’s that are not dependent on external devices. Devices today are almost at the point if not already that are doing the thinking for a lot of people and that is really the scary part. I am one of advocacy of changing behaviors when it comes to how we approach our internet and phone usage. It needs reminding that these devices used should be viewed as tools and not sources for entertainment. The computer should be for research, ways, to help foster entrepreneurs endeavors and people need to have clear objectives when using these tools so that their time is not spent wasted on useless self indulging surfing the net for other nefarious or unsavory things out in cyberspace.

          The predatory function of cell phones and their apps in particular is targeting youths between the ages of 11 to 18 by creating addictive environments within the games they play, and thus prey on the monetary aspect to exploit those addictions. I also argue that if no supervised properly it can interfere with learning. When my child is old enough, it will be explained to him why he can not have a cell phone, until he is old enough such as college. The same with computers, however it will be limited in that aspect, with a condition for him to use the computer as a learning tool, not for games and entertainment. However, that being said on the latter, it may get more challenging as always with time that technology evolves and incorporates it’s tentacles into the institutions of learning as it becomes more common in its usages such as books, tools in the classroom etc. But at least I am advocating to my child how to approach these tools, to have awareness and condition him on why privacy is so important and of course with peer pressure and the envy of others is another challenge that will no doubt be a negative influence on my child. We as parents have to do our part in changing this culture and this is a good place to start!

    I saw this coming long ago. THE big name in data collection, Experian is a major player with not only facebook but all social networking. They are also the data base behind most, if not all Departments of Motor Vehicles for all states. They tell the DMV’s what data to collect and what documentation will be required to verify it. It explains why at every interaction that I’ve had with a gov’t agency in the last year, they have demanded a cell phone # and a email address and were not happy when they didn’t get them. They are the reason for photo ID’s required for everything we do. It’s not the threat of terrorism, that’s the excuse. A disposable cell phone that you turn off (or take the battery out) when you’re not using it and leave the social stuff to the sheep. Use a Tor browser so your location won’t be logged by the web sites you visit. Thailand now requires a face scan and a fingerprint to get a cell phone. People are so addicted to the social validation that they will agree to anything to get more “bouncing bunnies” as a reward. This does not bode well.

The lady on the pnone two days later was very patient while I listed off 50 channels, one by one. When she came back it was only a savings of $1.90. I knew they have just gotten my personal information and for what. I believe DISH is going to soon be history in my house.

    Right now, we have no laws that cover what these Internet Giants are doing to people.

    Google, Facebook and Twitter, lure people onto their sites with a ‘free service’…and then Take something from them without asking.
    They then turn around and Sell what they have taken from people.
    They even put ‘tracking cookies’ on their visitors’ devices…to increase what they Take from their visitors.

    There is no Law against this.
    But I think there should be.

    At the very least these Internet Giants should be required to give Full Disclosure of all the ‘data’ that they are taking from people.
    And also Who they are selling it to…and for how much.

            Amen. Took my two sons to home depot to get outfitted with their own basic gear to start working construction this summer. If they have the knack, they can make decent money plus experience. I call it tent making; learn a trade, then pursue your career etc. But if you ever get in a bind, you can always sling on your tools and ply your trade again, or moonlight for extra cash. Even if you don’t return to it, you’ll still have tools for your own home projects.

            If they like it, they’ll have good work every summer and in between college semesters. Or even pass on college and go specialize in a trade.

            Being a jack of trades is what allowed me to “walkabout” in Europe for almost a decade, for what initially was a just supposed to be year long break from the aviation rat race. I had several solid options to choose from upon returning, but just never came back. 20 years later I’m in IT, LOL.

    I am totally diggin’ this thread, as this is a topic near and dear to my heart. Mostly I am surrounded by people who have been totally duped by Googlet and Faceplant. I do have quite a few friends who have stayed away from Faceplant like me. I always point out that Hitler, Stalin, Mao, et all, would have thoroughly loved to have these social media sites to help them get rid of pesky people much faster. That being said, they did a pretty good job without these modern tools that are actually weapons against the people. IMHO, no real good can come from these sites.

      That is my position as well. All the “authorities” have to do is get a couple of people and track all their acquaintances on like-minded Garglet, fascistbook , Tweedle, etc. to pretty much round up the whole group.

      Especially since in recent years Robert Mueller destroyed the FBI Muslin database and has one instead on Patriots (potential subversives) like NRA members, military veterans, etc. When FBI trainers visit local police academies now, afterwards they hand out their business cards with instructions to report vehicles displaying bumper stickers like “3%”, “Oathkeepers”, etc.

  34. A must watch.

    One interesting point, Drudge was very confident he was unaffected by the totalitarianism of the corporate media and Clinton machine. I wonder…his headlines changed at some point. I don’t visit DR anymore and haven’t for a couple years.

    He also seemed to think Trump was part of the corporate hype, but in a bad way.

    So very many smart people had no idea about Donald Trump. Our VSG President was/is a Godsend.

    Trump did not come up on my radar as a POTUS candidate until my Democrat spouse said he hoped that he would run. I thought at the time there was no way. Trump was just doing this as a publicity stunt or chicken out at the last minute as he had twice before. When he announced his candidacy my spouse was pleased and was sure he had a chance. I did not since I was certain that once they turned up the heat and threatened his family he would run for the hills as Perot did. Keep in mind I have been a life long Republican, I was sure only thing running was RINOS and the nation was doomed even if a Republican won. Election night I sat staring at the TV until I could no longer listen to the stupidity of the commentators. I could not decide why was no longer able to watch. Was it I didn’t want to see Hillary win or watch Trump lose. I awoke at three in the morning to tune back in simply out of morbid curiosity. I was so elated and excited I could barely get back to sleep when I read the announcement across the screen. I woke my spouse to tell him Trump had won and he rolled over to view the TV in disbelief as I had.

    Everyday I pray for Trump and his family. He does this at great sacrifice and tremendous love for his country. I do not know how we could replace him. No one has the stamina and sheer will he has shown. I wonder if he knew how hard this would be. He had to see how corrupt and willfully incorrigible the press and public could be. Only he has the tenacity to give as good as he gets.

    Yup, facebook what? It was basically a wanna be social network back in the day. Stop and think when did Facebook blow out into the public consciousness hmmm….

    Had something to do with events of 2011.

    Before then, Facebook who??? Of it seems all so long ago, like FB has been around since the dawn of time. But, FB was the manufactured result of how it was USED by a political narrative to achieve an outcome.
    Now, just who owes who in that equation, or who owns who are some real troubling questions.

    Oh, by the way the above event is the Arab Spring.

    If going “off the grid” doesn’t seem to be a reasonable option in the 21st century, what can a private citizen do to combat the personal data collection of tech giants such as Google and Facebook?

    Technical consultant and Web developer Dylan Curran demonstrated in a series of tweets this week how much information Google and Facebook are storing about individuals, the Gateway Pundit reported. Commenting on Facebook’s spying, he observed to the popular blog: “When you aren’t paying for the product, you are the product.” In a video, he explained how to to opt out of data collection:

    Facebook has purged two popular pro-Trump Facebook pages over the Easter holiday weekend after the creator of both revealed his previously anonymous identity on the Milo Yiannopoulos podcast.

    God Emperor Trump (GET) and its back-up account, God Emperor Trump II, boasted 330,000 and 75,000 followers respectively, before they were flushed down the memory hole under suspicious circumstances, as the tech giant continues its unbridled attack on free speech, conservatives, and Trump supporters.

    Social media works by rewarding the brain’s dopamine centers similar to smoking, drinking alcohol and gambling, meaning entire generations of young people are being turned into addicts.

    Facebook believes ‘most’ of its 2bn users had their data improperly mined & misused
    Published time: 4 Apr, 2018 20:10

    Facebook’s powerful search engine allowed any users to search for accounts by typing an individual’s phone number or email to locate the required person. While convenient and efficient, the ‘Search and Account Recovery’ function likely also helped “malicious actors” gain access to the personal data of “most” of Facebook’s two billion users, the company has admitted. Unless the user changed their setting to block the built-in search function, they were vulnerable to potential misuse of their data.
