CNN Interviews Brad Parscale, Then Accidentally Notes the DNC 2020 Strategy…

This is a little funny.  CNN’s Dana Bash interviews President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale.  The discussion is about the election, but on a granular level is really about data use in the 2020 election.  Parscale has given these interviews before, the one with PBS [SEE HERE] is much better.

However, the more interesting aspect to the interview actually comes after the segment when CNN’s Jake Tapper happens to note what the DNC is attempting to do.  Within Tapper’s remarks he happens to outline why the DNC is running the crew currently enlisted as candidates.  Watch specifically at the 04:00 point.

.

What Tapper notes as the urgent data collection priority of the DNC is specifically the reason why the club has enlisted Beto to draw-in the community they need to harvest.  The Democrats, specifically young democrats, have no idea how the ‘club’ plans to use them.

It is important to remember the DNC and RNC are private clubs. The club rules and processes have have no direct connection to the administration of government.

The DNC and RNC are completely private organizations with the ability to make their own rules, membership terms, conditions and agendas. You’d be surprised how many people do not know that simple point.

Because they are private clubs it is always laughable when politicians talk about “campaign finance reform”. Quite simply if either club -or both- wanted to put limits or restrictions on the financial side of their club membership or activity, they could; easy peasy. Those rules have nothing to do with government; the clubs make the decisions not to do so.

The introduction of Robert Francis O’Rourke was weak at best.  There was little to no fanfare from the DNC club.  The roll out was horrible.  This is not the entrance of ‘the chosen one‘.

The unofficial ‘chosen one‘, the intended party donor candidate, will not surface until April or May 2019. The DNC is predictable; it’s a club. It’s far too early for the anointed candidate to surface.

Planning, scheming, endless meetings, talking points, operational organization and strategy is one of the key elements of the Democrat party.  This is what they do.  This is all they do.  It might seem weird at first, but the DNC club is not chaotic; and, from my perspective, that is their weakness. It makes them predictable.The Democrats rarely, if ever, go off script.

Now, let’s get down to business….

Remember, the DNC is a private club. They set their own member rules, bylaws and regulations.

The DNC is a private club, they do not need to allow anyone to become a member. The DNC controls the terms for membership.

[The RNC is the same]

Most voters have no idea about how the RNC and DNC being private clubs plays into U.S. elections. Let’s talk about the open secret.

Like any club, there are dues or fees associated with being a member. However, the primary currency for members to receive support from the DNC club does not revolve around direct payments to the club. Instead, the club membership agreement is based upon a much more valuable currency of data gathering. The citizens, or individual voters, represent the data the club needs to collect.  The data is the game now.

Private companies like: Apple, Google, Facebook and Amazon have business models that are dependent on data collection. The data is you. Your data is valuable. When they have your data; your phone number, address, email, bank account, ip address, geolocation identifiers, pictures, vehicle location etc. they then have control over your profile. In essence, they know you… and they know your contacts… and your family… and your friends… and your work…. and your dentist… and your diet… and your secrets.

If you use your phone a lot, most people do, your phone holds a lot of your data. When you plug your phone into your computer the operating software downloads your phone data and transfers it to file sharing systems for transmission via the internet. Log on to a wifi network and the router automatically uploads that data to the host. If you plug your phone into a vehicle enabled with GPS or Bluetooth tech the same thing happens; the car downloads your phone data and then transmits it to the vehicle data-center.

Rental car companies make just as much money selling the uploaded phone data of rental car users as they do from the traditional business model of renting you the depreciating car.

In the business realm, the assembled profile allows the data owners to track you and influence you toward purchasing decisions. You, that is your ‘data profile’, then becomes a commodity; a currency of sorts. As a commodity the business can sell your data to another business who aggregates thousands, perhaps millions, of other profiles. Take a picture with your phone and voila, you’ve just shared data with the provider.

Your data is valuable.

The currency of the private club (RNC or DNC) is based on this model. Data is the trade-able currency for club membership. If you want to be an important club member; if you want the support of the club’s leadership; well, gather more data. Gather a lot of data and that data file is worth a great deal to the club management. They too want to influence your decisions.

Even if Joe Biden wanted to, he cannot gather the data needed for a 2020 presidential bid; Biden cannot pack an arena with 10,000 high-energy voters. So if the club wants to support Biden (or another party-favored milquetoast candidate), they need another method for data collection.

Enter Bernie Sanders….

Bernie is a great capitalist.

Bernie is perhaps the greatest capitalist on the left side of the ledger.

Bernie Sanders as a political candidate is a great harvester of data. What makes Bernie’s harvest so valuable is the type of data profile he is harvesting. Bernie is harvesting from a key audience. For whatever reason, the valuable audience loves Bernie. Jane and Bernie love the value of the audience data. Yum.

Bernie and Jane know their how to exploit their business model for their benefit. The DNC club loves that Jane and Bernie know how to harvest. The club pays Bernie and Jane a premium because their harvest product is full of healthy young data nutrients.

The club also doesn’t want to undermine Jane and Bernie’s efforts; so they wait. Bernie and Jane know the club is waiting for the deposit; the club rules require it. Jane and Bernie have their eyes on a very nice house. The future is bright for Bernie and Jane.

And so it goes…. and so it goes.

March is harvest month for Bernie and Jane. After the harvest the club will pay handsomely and then all will cheer.

The same role and responsibility applies to Beto; this is why President Obama visited Beto.  However, unlike Bernie, Beto might just be stupid enough not to realize his role.

Additionally, just like the unsuspecting young couple who plugged their phone into the convenient rental car charger and gave away their data, the Bernie and Beto data providers will be oblivious.

Club rules.

Enjoy the show.

      She had and LGBTQXYZ gaffe and has also blamed US soldiers, however for dems that’s a feature not a bug.

      Don’t know if they are keeping her under wraps so she can’t be discredited fast enough, or if the LGBTQ gaffe was a mortal wound.

        Tulsi is of Samoan and European ancestry. Her mother is a white woman from Indiana who converted to Hiduism. Her father is a Catholic and Samoan. She was born in Samoa and grew up in Hawaii. She chose to become a Hindu in high school.

        Tulsi would be a great candidate for the Dems. She’s well spoken, attractive, and young, and a woman. Ticks a lot of boxes. She’s willing to buck the establishment, as she endorsed Bernie over Hillary in 2016. That’s a plus to attract Dems who are angry at the establishment. Plenty of progressives love her.

        She’s basically a socialist in everything but name. She wants Medicare for all and government funded abortion. She’s a leftist who knows how to sound like a moderate.

        The way to take her out would be to make her come out for more moderate and centrist policies to alienate the Young Turks crowd.

          Thanks for the info. However, I don’t think outing her “moderate policies” will do anything but help her because the Dems will abandon AOC, Bernie, Beto, etc. after they get all the donations and data out of the pot smoking dupes who are brain damaged enough to support them. Then they will move to the center with a candidate like Tulsi.who has a chance in the general election of deceiving the general public.

          If you want to take her out, point out that she is not sufficiently woke with the LGBTQ community…oh wait…..that doesn’t really hurt her either as it will play well with the rising Islamic faction battling for the helm of the Democratic party that is VERY well funded.

          If you want to take her out, encourage Hillary to run again. She do the work for us.

          However, Mitch did a LOT to undermine MAGA in midterms; he and Ryan control campaign funds, and supported non-MAGA candidates against MAGA candidates in the Primary, used splitter strategy, and if MAGA candidate won anyway, witheld $ from MAGA candidate in general.

          That played more of a roll in Republicons losing House majority, than ballot fraud, IMHO.

        • Agreed. The PBS interview was longer and far more revealing.

          Every time we write POTUS or otherwise interact (via official WH news feeds, clicking on a picture, etc.), this is logged. That way they know what types of stories motivate us. Sometimes I deliberately click on a story about a specific issue to emphasize its importance.

          Kind of creepy, actually, as I am uber privacy oriented. I use various means to try to obscure what can be captured about me, both in platforms, searches, browser and no social media presence–no FB, no Twitter.

          At this point it would seem that POTUS has Republican votes locked up–despite Jeb’s whining about a primary challenger. But to win Pres. Trump will have to peel away Dem votes and capture Independents. Can’t see how data capture from those already “sold on POTUS” will advance that. Parscale and his team are likely way ahead in crunching through this issue.

    This message joins up with another aspect of the Dem Party: Dem Party actually does not have a platform, or a set of positions on the main, obvious issues. They use the apparent, supposed “platform” as a means for sustaining power.

    Are they against capitalism? Well, no. They are not really against anything. They are against capitalism, if you frame the issue one way. Frame it another, and they are not.

    Are they against abortion? Of course. Unless you frame the issue another way. Then, they are not.

    The main way they get away with this is by avoiding common sense analysis such as being in a position to answer, “what is your plan for this ‘job creation’ you mentioned in a speech the other day?” The battle front is on emotion, and on framing the opposition as “bad,” or evil;” not on explaining exactly how they might bring back middle class jobs.

    Individual candidates will have to have positions. The lower level the position, the more clearly. But higher up, candidates and elected officials become more generic. So they can avoid having a platform.

    The current thing to do is to throw a direct question at a candidate: “overall, do you think regular citizens are OK having firearms?”

    Think of how Beto answered the NFL-knealing question: very vague.

    Digital marketing doesn’t amount to anything, as far as I am concerned. The promises made are what drew me in, the promises kept are what keeps me. I care about results.

        It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if many of Enterprise’s employees aren’t aware of this aspect of the business. The data can probably be retrieved wirelessly from the vehicles when they are returned to the facility, with regular staff unaware of it the whole time. And they probably don’t want the staff to know about it, because if they let that info slip out while talking to a customer, they may lose business.

    Neither Jake nor Dana sound optimistic that the DNC will catch up to Trump’s data by 2020. That’s encouraging.

      Except that is the part I feel is their disinformation. To give an illusion D’s will be the underdog in the data mining volume. Dana & Jake just spoke of the DNC vs RNC . D’s big dog is Act Blue . Largely aided by Bernie’s 2016 run. Hillary eventually gave hers to DNC in 2017 as an “in kind” contribution, but you know Clinton never do anything for free and got it back someway. Of course most candidates “rent” their lists and this is where many make their $$$$ . Lots of articles about Bernie’s valuable data.

      We now have a FARA czar and now we need one for campaign finance , and eventually closing of many loopholes.

    I have been an admirer of Brad’s brains and expertise since this interview that he did thenweek after the 2016 election. Megan Kelly is as annoying as always, but I just loved listening to Brad talk about his certainty of an electoral college win. (He predicted 305)

  25. Sundance is 100% correct. Let me throw out a very simple and factual data point. If Facebook has a user that clicked 70 likes, they can more accurately predict your personality traits than your roommate. If a Facebook user has clicked on 300 likes, they can predict your personality traits better than your spouse! This is a fact, I am in the data business. Brad has created a data operation that CAN NOT be replicated again until there is another Trump like candidate….and that ain’t coming along for another 30-60 years. We are going to keep on winning, enjoy the ride!

    Private clubs. The best thing about private clubs is that the members get to decide who can join the private club and who cannot join the private

    In 2016 both parties made a mistake about who can join their private clubs. The republicans let Mr. Trump join their private club which resulted in a disastrous outcome (in their view) that mistake changed (perhaps forever) their private club.

    In 2016 the democrats let Mr. Sanders join their private club. They assumed they dodged a bullet by giving it to Mrs Clinton, but the end result was just as disastrous.

    Once they let Mr. Sanders in the private club, they can’t just kick him out. Because they let Mr. Sanders into the private club, look at all the riffraff that believe that they are entitled to belong to the democrat private club.

    If the democrat private club takes a loss (perhaps a big loss) in 2020, they will be able to say ‘I told you so’ and then re-establish the absolute requirements for their private club. The republican private club would have been more than happy to lose the 2016 election and re-establish their absolute requirements.

    Remember there are trillions at stake (I read that somewhere ;). Why would a private club want to to let the riffraff decide what to do with that money?

    Another crucial insight from Sundance, not only insight on campaign data strategies but it’s very serious connection to massive surveillance under the guise of the “big” data industry.

    We are under the grip of one of the most dangerous, Orwellian monopolies in history – one that could easily be broken up with open market standards. But no one is willing.

    There are only two device platforms left. Apple and Google. Both business models are based on data collection and surveillance. Both control what apps are made available, and what data they are allowed to collect and share.

    Then add to all of this that Facebook is the primary social media app on both of those platforms and, that ubiquitous Google controls of consumer information searches.

    Our government’s exploitation of this is undergoing a trial balloon in this week’s media/propaganda cycle. Watch it unfold. Communicable disease “outbreaks” are being blamed on anti-vaccine movies, books and websites. Google, Facebook, and Amazon have been “pressured” by the CDC to censor this content and, they are willingly doing so. A fake crisis, exploited to test government nullification of the First Amendment.

    It will get far far worse.

    “The DNC and RNC are completely private organizations with the ability to make their own rules…” Back in ’16 I used to get a laugh out of people hyperventilating over the shafting Bernie was taking. I’d patiently explain to them that the DNC was a private organization and could rig its game anyway it wanted to, but unfortunately, most people aren’t perceptive enough to see it.

    Wow, thanks for that look under the DNC rock, Sundance. It’s interesting that after the 2016 election Bernie got a $600K lake-front home. He didnt go hog wild with some millionaire’s palace. Perhaps he hoped to fool his constituents. What will he get this time around? What will Beto get? Veto is the leftist poster boy for white privilege. Though he got a degree in English he worked in his uncle’s internet firm then opens up his own related business. I dont know of many English majors like that.

    I am so in agreement with the tone of this article. In 2015/16, democrats loved referring to the republican ‘clown car’ with 17 candidates. Now I am seeing it more and more, particularly when ‘yet another’ democrat announces a run for president. However, make no mistake – the DNC candidate has not yet been selected, and those who have declared will ultimately have a job to do. That job will be to deliver voters to the ‘selected’ candidate. Bernie will deliver his Bros, Kamala – the AA vote (although she isn’t), Spartacus – watchers of The View, Gillibrand – #metoo voters, Klobuchar and Hickenlooper – the flyover vote, etc., etc. And just like Senator Lakehouse, they will deliver because ‘Orange Man bad’.

    I don’t recall this same strategy for president Trump. How many voters did Jindal, Kasich, Rubio, Bush, McCain deliver? That’s why the POTUS win will always amaze me.

    Flipping channles today and as I went by MSNBC Chrissy Mathews said “we look forward to the database” and I remembered this post here, so I searched a little and here ya go,
    Bill Barrow reported in Feb

    The arrangement would allow the national party, state parties and independent political action groups on the left to share voter data in real time during campaigns. That means, for example, that a field worker for a congressional campaign in Iowa and another for an independent political action committee knocking on doors in Florida could update a master voter file essentially as they work. When a presidential campaign spends big money on consumer data to update voter profiles, the new information would go into the central file as well. And all participating organizations would have access to the latest information.

    Parties, campaigns and PACs use that kind of voter data to decide which voters to call and who to visit in person or to determine which voters receive targeted digital ads on platforms such as Facebook and YouTube, among other things.

    Currently, political action groups on the left must gather, update and use data independently from the party.

    Guy Cecil, who runs the leading Democratic super PAC Priorities USA, confirmed his group plans to join the exchange. Perez said he envisions adding organized labor groups and Planned Parenthood, along with PACs tied to Democratic congressional leaders.

    I fully expect the left to put a full-court press on Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc. to not sell the Trump campaign digital ad space. These companies will make up some false reason to severely limit their services to the Trump campaign. I also expect there will be completely fraudulent stories questioning the Trump campaign’s data collection efforts, and we will hear how “the seriousness of the charge” requires Facebook, Twitter, etc. put a moratorium on Trump campaign ads.
