Both companies came across as shady/sketchy .... both willing to break moral/legal boundaries...but also to be snakeoil sellers

The testimony of Chris Vickery to Parliament in the UK today seemed to finally nail AIQ/CA
WSJ - Cambridge Analytica Closing Operations Following Facebook Data Controversy
Nigel Oakes, the founder of SCL Group, Cambridge Analytica’s British affiliate, confirmed that both companies were closing down.
However...will their shady practices live on ? Where will their staff go next ?

New company names and registrations. The wonderfully clueful people on P.ie on the CA/FB thread will think that they've closed but they will still be in business.

And it's reborn: Emerdata Ltd - the new Cambridge Analytica/SCL Group? CA's Nigel Oakes said Emerdata was set up a year ago to acquire CA/SCL, now two Mercers are on the board, with Erik Prince's business partner Chun Shun Ko, who has close ties to the Chinese govt.

I think it will be harder to pull off the same trick twice. I have noticed when trying to get back onto Google Adsense recently (where you put ads on a website and earn commission for clicks) that they seem to have tightened up the rules especially for conservative blogs. Now obviously I was not involved in collusion but I think your common or garden conservative is getting caught up in the fallout from this.

Julian Wheatland, CEO of SCL Group Ltd, parent of Cambridge Analytica, has two new roles (neither appears connected to CA/SCL) - Company Director of Fanalytica Limited as of 27 Oct 2017 and Chief Operating Office of Emerdata Ltd as of 11 Aug 2017

Another director is ROMAN ABRAMOVICH, lols to the max.

Oh and Dorian Barack, nasty man, whose partner turned states evidence against Bibi Netanyahu for big bribery/corruption is also on the same board as Ko Chun Shun and Erik Prince which now controls Emerdata, the Phoenix from the Flames.

Israel, China, Russia and American crooks.

Woop-de-dooh.

Major investor - Vincent Tchenguiz, god awful crook who crashed Icelandic banks and was dragged through the courts in the UK for fraud.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_Tchenguiz

He also works with a terrible private spook agency, called Black Cube, full of former Mossad.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Cube

BTW, this cant, Tchenguiz owned the company which refused to replace the dodgy cladding on Grenfell Tower.

International criminals, all of them.

The irony is, this has helped the owner's profiles immensely.
Because in truth, I don't think they had much of an actual impact.
Democrats are still smarting so much at their loss to Trump that they are pointing at everything and anything to blame (because it definitely wasn't Hillary).

Remember when it was the Twitterbots that swung it for him ?
And the pandering to racists (they couldn't defeat a black man - twice, yet somehow came out in force against an elderly white woman).
And rednecks.
And the flyover states.
And the 'deplorables'.
And the etc. etc.

Meanwhile the Clinton Foundation took in over $2 billion, much of which from highly dubious regimes.

But nothing to see here.

Quick, look over there - a Russian !

Like the numerous dodgy building firms in the UK, "A&J builders", will just become "J&A better builders" and carry on regardless..
And apologies to any companies with either name, they were plucked from my arse and are fictional!

Arthur Anderson Consulting the auditors and accounting giant that set up a myriad of subsidiaries within Enron to keep it trading illegally while it was broke just changed their name after the scandal to Accenture and everything turned out rosy in the garden.
A leopard never changes his spots and within 10 years I expect more "stench of scandal" about these techies making the headlines.I can well imagine some big tech companies associated with F******B***K also doing a re-branding exercise within a year as the bad news just keeps rolling on.Some more execs who started with MZuck
have quit the companies bought by F****B***k and they must see something coming headlong for them or their share options losing value quickly.

Facebook has not been rebranded.

No change there.
