Obama’s data advantage [Drudge Headline: "Obama Watching You"]
politico ^ | 6/9/12 | Lois Romano

Posted on 06/09/2012 8:12:10 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

On the sixth floor of a sleek office building here, more than 150 techies are quietly peeling back the layers of your life. They know what you read and where you shop, what kind of work you do and who you count as friends. They also know who your mother voted for in the last election.

The depth and breadth of the Obama campaign’s 2012 digital operation — from data mining to online organizing — reaches so far beyond anything politics has ever seen, experts maintain, that it could impact the outcome of a close presidential election. It makes the president’s much-heralded 2008 social media juggernaut — which raised half billion dollars and revolutionized politics — look like cavemen with stone tablets.

Some of this, no doubt, is psychological operations--an attempt to intimidate and create doubt among those of us who want to boot the Kenyan Communist.

I do think, though, BO's "campaign" now includes government resources not available to the other side--I believe Obama's perverted sense of ethics will allow his side to take private information (he won't consider it "private", since he is the Occupier of the White House) and use it for his advantage.

Obama can data mine all he wants... what’s he going to do, blackmail people into voting for him?

The only way he gets re-elected is through voter fraud.

Well then, Obama will know from the data that he is going to loose because people are sick of him and his communist crew.

My mother is dead and therefore has voted democrat for the past 12 years.

She votes, do you think she could at least call me on election day. Nope.
Nothing not a peep from her.

Who should I sue?

Him knowing how my mother voted, my shoe size or what I bought at Walmart isn’t going to help him gain my vote. My data isn’t valid to the question of who the candidate for POTUS is and if he’s going to preserve the good name and power of America. The entire world has known the answer to that for at least 3 years so that means all this data collection has NOTHING to do with the election.

Absolutely!

How many states now have Voter ID in place? So, they can enact fraud in reliably donk states. Big whoop.

Also, we have all learned to ignore the ads on web pages, if we even see them because we have blocking programs.

So, we now know that his voters are slavishly following their Tweets and engaging in FB campaigns. How does that help them when they are tweeting to and friending the choir? I still get a very few liberal emails from clueless statists. I ignore them. They simply strengthen my own convictions.

This is all just a big circle jerk. I am so intimidated. Not.

They were already at that level in 2000 but did not have the means to plant the votes. Now, with the counting of votes farmed out to a Spanish company owned by George Soros, they have the means to do just what you imagine! It is not as difficult a task as folks might believe. we have network pundits who can recite the counties in given states where voting is crucial, and these same pundits have been following the voting patterns for decades and updating with new census registries. Even Karl Rove has a working memory of these seemingly too small a detailed aspects of the voting patterns. ... And that should scare the bejeebers out of true conservatives.

Yaknow, Mr. Obama, both our Moms passed away along time ago.

It would be a shock and a real shame to see that they were still voting.. but not a surprise considering the snake you&crew have been all along.

They also know who your mother voted for in the last election.

My mother was a Roosevelt Democrat, although she did vote for Goldwater in '64 (she did NOT like LBJ). I'm sure she's still voting Democrat, although she passed away 10 years ago.

Obama’s 2012 Theme Song should be:

Every breath you take
And every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
Ill be watching you

Every single day
And every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
Ill be watching you

Oh, cant you see
You belong to me
Now my poor heart aches
With every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
Ill be watching you

Since youve gone, Ive been lost without a trace
I dream at night, I can only see your face
I look around but its you I cant replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby please

Oh, cant you see
You belong to me
Now my poor heart aches
Every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
Ill be watching you

Every move you make
Every step you take
Ill be watching you
Ill be watching you

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
(Ill be watching you)

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
(Ill be watching you)

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
(Ill be watching you)

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
(Ill be watching you)

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
(Ill be watching you)

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night

It is funny to me there are still people that don’t think this guy is not like Stalin or the H word. He is sinister and evil. I still hold it in my heart that there will not be an election. Call me paraniod but who would have thought that a president would have techie spies watching people. I mean Nixon had an enemies list but this is scary. He is watching private citizens. He’s got a plan, and what it is we will be finding out soon.

So, I sent Barry the following email in December of 2009 in response to an email I got from his campaign folks. Think I'm on some sort of list?
Subject: Fwd: We will not back down
To: info@barackobama.com

In all my years alive I have NEVER seen anyone in the position of the presidency do more than you to undermine the very concept of the United States. Not even Jimmy Carter comes close.

I have become convinced by your choices that you are either a blithering idiot, as seen by the tiny fraction of your nominees who have any private sector experience compared to all other presidents back into the century before last, or an arrogant fool, as seen by the tiny fraction of your nominees who have any private sector experience compared to all other presidents back into the century before last. Same for your plans for health care. Same for your breaking the bank through deficit spending. Same for your cash for clunkers. Same for your support of that complete fraud of anthropogenic global warming and every bit of statist crap built on top of that from "renewable energy" to cap and trade to Copenhagen.

You've been an embarrassment and disaster for the United States and a blight upon the world. You've set back by at least a generation the chances for a competent black or fractionally black individual to be elected President.

In 2010 the first adjustment will come. In 2012 the second. And soon after that you will be that diminishing revolting burp people have to experience after having swallowed something that had lots of pretty garnishes but turned out to be fundamentally unfit for human consumption.

I and all the others you derisively refer to as tea-baggers will not back down either.

Here's another one:
Date: Sat May 14 02:42:50 WST 2011
Subject: Re: Something happened
To: info@barackobama.com

"The CEOs from the five major oil companies -- which together booked $36 billion in profits in the first quarter of 2011 alone -- went to the Senate on Thursday to try to justify the $4 billion in tax giveaways they're receiving this year."

You see, I also know that for every dollar of profit, oil companies have paid about three dollars of tax. I also know that for the fourth quarter of 2010, Exxon-Mobil made a profit of about 2 cents on every gallon of gasoline sold, whereas the federal and state governments made over 50 cents "windfall profit" per gallon through taxes for doing absolutely nothing in locating, drilling, refining, and delivering the gas.

I know that most of those "tax giveaways" go to small, independent oil companies, not the big corporations. I know that eliminating long standing tax deductions (the things you guys mislabel as "giveaways") will help big oil by eliminating competition. Hmm, which big oil gave Barry Obama 20 billion to use for something that still hasn't happened? What is Barry planning to do with the loot? I know that Barry's favorite "green" technologies have received far more subsidies than the oil industry and they produce and will produce almost nothing of America's energy. So, in dollars spent for unit of energy gained, wind, solar, ethanol, and geothermal are among the biggest wasters of taxpayer money in the history of energy.

Something happened.

It's people in the millions seeing the ruin that Barry's Soros-directed policies have made of a strong and prosperous nation and determining that they're not going to be fooled again.

Something is happening.

It's the last grains of sand in the hourglass rapidly draining away. Get ready to find private sector employment.

Date: Tue Sep 20 00:01:30 WST 2011
Subject: Re: "Class warfare"
To: info@barackobama.com

Geez, please! You guys are such economic tards. Go back to the late 19th century when Barry's political economy was in vogue, though, even then, it was just as defective.

I know that if all the income of all the "millionaires and billionaires" were confiscated, it would be enough to run the federal government for a matter of months, if that. So when I hear Barry appealing to the mass of people who are paying little to nothing at all in income or capital gains taxes while getting "benefits" such as food stamps and free medical care like Medicaid against "the wealthy" to gain support for his plan to impose higher taxes on folks making far, far, far less than millions and billions, and promising more loot to his voter base, I know he's engaging in class warfare.

The thrill is gone. The Democrat soda is flat. The mask has come off. The man behind the curtain has been revealed. And what the American people are seeing isn't something as grand as an old man who got lost in his balloon and wound up in Oz mistaken for a wizard. We see a self-deluded relic from the radical sixties playing a political theme that is even more lame than disco.

To quote Roy Orbison, "It's over. It's OOOOOOOOOOOVER."

Now, more than ever, we know you're a clueless, scheming anti-American asshole of the highest caliber. The Bush years had 52 consecutive months of economic growth after his tax cuts. A record. The Bush years had an unemployment rate, even in the beginning of 2008, of ~5% or under. Yes, now we know that YOU ARE A MISERABLE FAILURE!!

Obama can data mine all he wants... what’s he going to do, blackmail people into voting for him?

He may try blackmailing people into not opposing him. Look at the level of harassment that supporters of California's anti-gay-marriage Proposition 8 received. Look at the Wisconsin mailings listing neighbors who have not voted.

Now, there's accusations that the Obama campaign is targeting Republican donors for harassment. Don't be surprised if it doesn't get VERY ugly.

I will not be surprised to see Leftist activists get lists of conservative supporters, including their home addresses, and contact info for their employers.

Everyone knows that both Google, and FB are left lead businesses, so Ancestry will provide them and the dims a proverbial gold mine of personal family information.

Think about why these two would bite? Neither has geneaology as core to their business.

Big brother is definitely here.

I work for a “big data” analytics company and the power of today’s computing technology along with the vast amounts of data that is available is astounding. With the right knowledge (which i am sure they have), you could load hundreds of billions of records into a single database, and perform analysis across data from a variety of sources:

- personal financial data
- financial industry data
- census data
- employment data
- voting data
- social media posts
- blog posts
- focus group data
- etc.

Someone said above - they would be able to target a group of 2000-3000 people where the election could hang in balance. And with all the information they have available, they could use that detailed data to structure a campaign message specifically at that group of people.

“Facebook is probably sharing their data mining with the white house.”

You can guarantee that, along with Google also.

That means I forgot to list browser search data, which could also be part of their analysis and that makes it all even more scary on what their analysis can provide.

Most people do not know this, but Google has created their own database platform called Hadoop. It is being positioned as an open source database that companies use for their analytics - hundreds of software companies and clients are building analytics solutions on top of the platform, very similar to Salesforce.com has done. I am 99% certain that I read somewhere that the Obama campaign is using Hadoop as their database and analytics platform.

This is a whole new level of big brother that no one could have imagined 10 years ago, much less when Orwell wrote 1984.

“I still hold it in my heart that there will not be an election.”

If that was his plan, he wouldn’t be going to all this trouble would he? Or maybe he’d LIKE to win, but his other plans are just for back-up.

Like you, “I still hold it in my heart that there will not be an election.” But I have the satisfaction of A. Knowing I’m usually wrong, and B. Having prepared for it anyway.

In the future, the United States has converted to an “electronic democracy” where the computer Multivac selects a single person to answer a number of questions. Multivac will then use the answers and other data to determine what the results of an election would be, avoiding the need for an actual election to be held.

The story centers around Norman Muller, the man chosen as “Voter of the Year”. Although the law requires him to accept the dubious honour, he is not sure that he wants the responsibility of representing the entire electorate, worrying that the result will be unfavorable and he will be blamed.

Ya gotta admire Satan's command of the English language and sense of irony.

He picked the one man we couldn't call Big Brother to be Big Brother.

I suppose we could, in the spirit of calling Janet Big Sis, call him Big Sissy...
