"They've bulldozed the competition, used our private information for profit, undermined our democracy and tilted the playing field against everyone else."---Elizabeth Warren.

The word got out that Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO of Facebook, recently informed his employees that he would fight like hell against the "existential" threat posed by US Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.

Had he tried he could not have orchestrated a more effective endorsement of Warren's candidacy for president. Those of us who subsist on less than ten digits in annual income can safely assume that Zuckerberg has no concept of a true existential crisis. He may have dreams of global domination but he certainly has no understanding of the scourge of monopolies on a free market economy.

It seems Warren has the audacity to propose breaking up the social media monopolies, noting that Facebook has swallowed Instagram and WhatsApp and together they dominate to the tune of 85% of the American market. If Warren succeeded in breaking up the dominant platforms, she argues that they would compete in protecting user privacy and assert greater effort at combating the sort of mass misinformation that corrupted our last presidential election. [1]

Zuckerberg's counter argument is reminiscent of the big three automakers, the railroads and Standard Oil arguing for their monopolies. The historical monopolies claimed that only they had the resources to serve the public interest. Zuck argues that only Facebook has the power and money to combat misinformation and foreign interest. The problem of course is that Zuck and company lack motive. Just like John D. Rockefeller and Henry Ford, their primary motive is to boost market share and the profit margin.

Mark Zuckerberg has never demonstrated a social consciousness. He responds with evasion, obfuscation and misinformation every time Facebook faces criticism. Even if we could believe in his philanthropic values we should not. History instructs us that corporate entities always serve their own interests. Always. Without exception. How much power and wealth does Zuckerberg need? The answer is and always will be: more!

Where was Zuckerberg's social consciousness when Russian agents spent sizable sums creating fake accounts to distribute false facts and vicious propaganda to targeted populations in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in the 2016 election? Did he know? Yes. He had to know. Several members of Facebook were working directly with Donald Trump's campaign, working alongside rightwing data operation Cambridge Analytica, in formulating advertisements and targeting Facebook users. An estimated 126 million users were exposed to Russian propaganda and 85 million had their data stolen by Cambridge Analytica. [2]

There is no doubt that Russia used Facebook and Zuckerberg profited. At his appearance before congress in April 2018 he testified that "tens of thousands" of fake accounts were identified and taken down in 2017 after the election. His solution for new verification requirements can easily be bypassed with shell companies and fake identifications. [3]

Zuck failed to answer questions about the data Facebook provides Russian and other foreign agencies where Facebook operates. Russia requires Facebook to store their data in Russia where they can access it. The irony is rich in that Zuck refuses to share data with the US government.

I'm not suggesting that Facebook should share its data with the US government. I am suggesting that it should not be sharing personal data with any government. As it now stands corporations like Facebook operate in a Wild West environment where anything goes. We have no way of knowing what data it retrieves and stores for analysis and what data it buries. Moreover, we have absolutely no reason to trust Zuckerberg and his loyal minions.

No one on the congressional committee thought to ask Zuckerberg what kind of assistance his employees provided to Russia agencies like the Internet Research Agency. If they provided data used to target voting populations in critical states, their complicity in defrauding the 2016 election would be significant.

When you take a closer look at the services Facebook typically provides its corporate customers it becomes highly probable they conspired with Russian interests in tipping the election. For example, they provide a "custom audience" application that matches your message with a receptive audience.

Between tech talk that no one outside the industry understands Zuckerberg repeatedly asserted that users have the power to control their own data. Really? The truth is we have no idea what Big Brother does with the data we provide. He repeatedly said they do not sell user data. That is only true in the most abstract sense. They use our personal data to feed algorithms that they then sell to advertisers who have something to sell to you. Without your data there would be nothing to sell.

It goes on and on but the bottom line is clear. Zuckerberg is no friend to American democracy or the public interest. He and his people are smart enough to find ways to sell you out a million times over and make unconscionable sums of money doing it.

Zuckerberg thought he was delivering a punishing blow to the Warren campaign. Instead, he delivered a ringing endorsement.

Actually, the best endorsement for Warren is the recent sway of coverage from the MSM since she apparently has linked up with Hillary Clinton which shows Warren's true views on matters that count for our nation and our citizens. Warren actually showed her true backside in 2016 when she endorsed Clinton over Sanders when all the while she was touting Sander's issues which were the complete opposite of Hillary's and the Deep State's.

In reality, Warren would be nothing more than another puppet of the Deep State. We will continue bullying sovereign nations in regime change fashion, Wall Street will continue its criminal activities, we will continue to "refine" Obama Care thus making more profits for the insurance industry, private prisons will continue to profit as more become incarcerated, our infrastructure will continue to crumble, and private schools will grow in profits at the expense of educating our youth.

This will all continue in spite of Warren's telling us she has a plan and the MSM will continue to emphasize her words while stifling the reality of decay.

Warren endorsed Clinton after she clinched the nomination. Check it. Sanders endorsed Clinton after a heated convention. That said Warren's connection to the Clintons does concern me. However I don't see her backsliding on the issues. We'll see.


Your repeated references to the Deep State make me wonder if you're not a Trumper in thin disguise trying to create divisions on the progressive front. I don't think it'll work. Warren is not Clinton. Warren stands with Bernie and so do I. Except Warren is for striking down the filibuster and so am I. Good luck with your Deep State theories. You might enjoy my trilogy: Pawns to Players - the Chess Series.

You're right, there is no Deep State every President in the past four decades have dismantled our nation on their own without any agenda. That's just coincidental.

As for Warren, the "I have a plan" gimmick did work for Nixon for his re-election when he had a plan for Viet Nam. If you believe Warren is a Progressive all that can be said is, "OUCH!"

Why stop at four decades? Traditional conspiracy theories go back JP Morgan. I know mine do. As for Nixon, his secret plan to end the war was hardly necessary. He won 49 states. Warren is a progressive. Ask Bernie. Any evidence to the contrary? You're still not admitting it: you're a Trumper trying to split the progressive front.

First, Elizabeth Warren is a phony portraying as a Progressive in wolves clothing as she continues to change her spots according to the group who is listening. After removing the Progressive clothing one finds a once Republican and present would-be puppet of the Deep State (you like that, don't you? ­čśŐ ) As for splitting the "progressive front" Warren is doing a better job through her dishonesty and waffling.

Now your ill-conceived notion that I am a "Trumper" only diminishes your credibility as a writer and observer. I would assume you opine I am a Trumper because of my use of "Deep State" which is a lame reason to think that at best but may reveal a degree of shallowness in critical thinking.

Seems I've touched a nerve. If you want shallow read your own statements. You've failed to provide a single example of Warren's conservative positions. I'm still curious: Do you claim to be progressive? I see no evidence of it. Are you for Bernie or is he a phony Deep Stater too? Prove you're not a Trumper. What do you think of our president?

Eisenhower gave us a clear warning about the danger of the "deep state", he called it the military-industrial-complex then. It has gone by many names such as the "power elite" and "permanent state": how about "permanent power elite state".

The deep state is not a single entity. It is the unelected power that comes from like minded interests, but is not a monolithic force with a single leader and marching in lockstep.

The deep state is the bureaucracy of the 'intelligence' services, the military leaders, corporate ceo's, big banks, think thanks, members of the CFR, academia (especially Ivy League), secret societies, and the media moguls, the billionaire class, old family dynasties, PACS such as AIPAC & NRA, etc.

They don't always agree, there is a tug and pull between them, but the one thing in common is that they have tremendous economic and political influence and power.

Seldom is the 'deep state' in line with the interests of the American people in general, but in line with the benefits to their own interests.

To deny the existence of the MIC, deep state, power elite, etc, regardless of the name, is to be extremely naive. The conspiracy theory is that it does not exist.

P.S. ...and no, Putin is not part of the US deep state, has zero influence in 'our democracy', nor does any other foreign power with the exceptions of Israel and possibly KSA.

P.S.S. Just out of hatred for DT is a very bad reason to embrace the deep state or to deny its existence.

Just fyi: I was lured into reading this abysmal puff piece because I have my OpEdNews settings to notify me when YOU comment on something.

The fact that the editorial staff has allowed a nasty little fingernail paring of an article that not only endorses a disgusting cardboard cutout of the previously loathesome DNC candidate (who cheated her ass off to get the nomination), it also continues to beat the dead horse of the fully debunked Russiagate blarney.

The author rushes to ad hominem when challenged by the very excellent Dennis Kaiser (hero of the working class) and calls him not only a conspiracy theorist but a supporter of Orange Mussolini simply because Dennis expresses the disgust we all share for that grandstanding, finger wagging fraud, Elizabeth Warren.

I am pretty close to giving up on social media in general and, sadly, OpEdNews in particular.

The ONLY thing I could agree with is that Zuckenberg is a jerk but talk about setting the bar low...

You are mistaken to assume that I deny the existence of the Military Industrial Complex originally the Military Industrial Technology Complex or that I deny the existence of conspiracies. I believe, for example, in compelling evidence that Russian agents including the Internet Research Agency conspired with Facebook, the NRA and Cambridge Analytica to tip the election to Donald Trump. I also believe that a small group of wealthy elites exerts extraordinary influence on the political process. I believe that Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren stand against that influence.

The Deep State, however, has its American roots in the far-far right of Stephen Miller, Steve Bannon and Alex Jones. It became popular with the elevation of Donald Trump to the Oval Office. I am frankly surprised that you are using that term and applying to include the bureaucracies of virtually every institution of power and/or influence in American finance, economics, military, media, education, think tanks and political action committees. When you define a conspiracy so broadly it ceases to have meaning.

By and large, I believe the bureaucrats who work in the institutions of government and finance have no secret agenda. They are there to uphold the norms and standards that enable the institutions to function. They are not responsible for the evil deeds their masters have sometimes committed.

It is my purpose to fight against the corporate elites of the MITC in the best way that I know how. I choose not to target the Facebook employee who wields little power but Mark Zuckerberg who wields a great deal of power. I choose to fight against those who deny the Russian election meddling conspiracy. They did it with surprising ease and efficiency and they'll do it again. The deniers are enabling them.

Half of the Russian click bait business' posts in 2016 occurred after the election. And most of them were of things having nothing to do with politics. You really should learn to do better research.

The Russians and Facebook didn't elect Trump. The national security state, corporate monopolized media and the bought and paid for Democratic party did. They used their hatred of Putin who had the audacity to remove the Western looters from his country to deflect blame from their own arrogant disinterest in the loss of middle and working class living standards they caused with their embrace of neoliberal policies.

I agree Zuckerberg is a narcissistic monoplist with no interest in the public good. However, he snapped to attention when congress insisted his operation begin censoring content the imperialist power structure finds inconvenient to their absolute rule.

This waning military empire needs no help from outside forces to continue its decent into third world status. The Wall St. money junkies will be happy to play that role so long as they get to make off with the countries shrinking pile of loot to spend on themselves elsewhere. Please learn who our real enemies are.

The margin of victory for Trump in 2016 was razor thin in the critical states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Russia had the propaganda apparatus and the fake accounts, Cambridge Analytica possessed the stolen data and Facebook provided the service connecting the propaganda to the culpable. That combination may well have tipped the election. Do your research.

Putin is bad actor a man who has usurped power, stolen the people's resources, assassinated and imprisoned political opposition and journalists. Defend Putin and you hurt your cause. Yes, our media is biased but Russia's is state-owned and state controlled. Yes, income inequality in the USA is horrific but not when compare to the poverty of the masses in Russia and the obscene wealth of Putin and his oligarchs.

We agree on Zuckerberg but not necessarily on his voluntary remedies. He still serves the almighty profit margin and will only do the bare minimum to secure privacy and label blatant foreign propaganda. You should support Warren's proposal to break up Facebook.

P.S. My enemies are your enemies. They include the military empire, the corporate elite, the Wall Street money junkies and Russian propagandists.

Russia's media is not state owned. There are some state owned outlets, but there are many privately owned media outlets as well.


Crowd Strike was the source of the Russian hacking theory. A privately owned cyber security firm with ties to the pro NATO think tank the Atlantic Council which was paid by the DNC to inspect the DNC servers even though Comey wanted the FBI wanted to inspect them. They were denied access. There were no repercussions for that. Seriously?

Bill Binney did a download speed test on the hack vs. leak of the emails. The former technical director of the NSA determined the download speeds from a hack didn't match the recorded download speeds while a leak from a thumb drive did.

There has never been any proof the Russians interfered in the 2016 election. None. It was a giant psyop concocted by the Clinton campaign and the intelligence agencies to cover up their embarrassing loss to Donald Trump after using every illegal means at their disposal to shoe horn their unpopular candidate into the White House.

Russia-gaters are suffering from a classic case of refusing to come to terms with having been snookered. Frankly, watching liberals succumb to supporting the national security state by sheer panic over Trump has been one of the most surreal experiences I can remember. Russia not our enemy. The national security state will do us in if we don't get a handle on their iron grip over our politics. and public perceptions via corporate state media.

I come back to the fact that a significant group of left-leaning intellectuals are attempting to split the progressive front by attacking Warren based on the slimmest of evidence. Given Bernie's recent health difficulties, your efforts inadvertently serve the cause of reelecting Donald Trump. Forgive me for thinking: if you serve Trump's interests and you peddle the language of the Deep State, you just might be a Trumper.
