The election of 2016 was a PSYOP. No, really.  https://nyti.ms/2E6xgmD 

Cambridge Analytica and Psy Group had a memorandum of understanding, reported in May.  https://www.wsj.com/articles/israeli-intelligence-company-formed-venture-with-trump-campaign-firm-cambridge-analytica-1527030765 â€¦

Fact that Cruz’s Cambridge Analytica appears to have sought to team up with Psy Group, which sought to run a social media PSYOP against Cruz is…awkward.

This news also broke today. Cambridge Analytica’s Alexander Nix is reportedly a scumbag racist on top of being a professional scoundrel.  https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/oct/08/former-cambridge-analytica-chief-alexander-nix-used-n-word-to-describe-barbados-pm â€¦
