The award against Gawker in the Hulk Hogan case was so out of all proportion, one had to wonder what it was all about. The only possible explanation I could think of is that it was meant to get the media to self-censor, but that would mean that someone with a bigger agenda was behind the Hulk.
Enter Peter Thiel. Just this week, Peter Thiel was revealed as the money man behind the exposed wrestler’s suit. Libertarians might recognize Thiel’s name. He was a supporter of Ron Paul and other libertarian causes, however, I’ve smelled a rat with this guy ever since I read that he sits on the steering committee of the Bilderberg Group. Upon further investigation, one finds that Thiel, co-founder of Paypal, was also an early investor in Facebook (alongside the CIA?) and is now a delegate for Donald Trump’s unlikely campaign.
Could Thiel be the kind of front man Pierre Omidyar, another tech billionaire (whose eBay bought Paypal in 2002), seems to be? Omidyar is the money behind Glenn Greenwald and The Snowden Project via The Intercept, but also worked hand in hand with the US government to overthrow the democratically elected government of Ukraine, the very Deep State stuff Greenwald & Snowden proclaim to work against.
As I have observed before, the relatively new Big Tech oligopoly seems to be leapfrogging Big Farm & Big Pharma to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Big Three of the M-I-C, Energy, Finance & Defense, putting in place what I’ll hereby dub the next generation of “the world operating system.”
