Cambridge Analytica boss met with Peter Tiu Laviña and Pompee La Viña six months before Duterte run

Here’s the RESIBO [proof] that it could only be Rodrigo Duterte who used a British data analytics firm to help get elected President.

Cousins Peter and Pompee personally met Alexander Nix in May 2015, after he delivered a talk at the National Press Club on his company’s new way of running an election campaign.

What do you think they discussed during that meal which did not even include beer as a drink but only ice tea?

And why would the cousins La Viña and Laviña motor all the way to the National Press Club in Manila (which is so out-of-the-way from Makati, Pasig and Bonifacio Global City) just to listen to a foreign guy jaw off about a new way of conducting an election campaign?

Six months after that meal, Duterte had tossed his mayor’s hat into the presidential ring and the cousins had become a central part of his campaign team: Pompee La Viña as the “social media director” and Peter Tiu Laviña as the campaign spokesman.

I know that rabid Duterte supporters have been castigating me for concluding it was Duterte whom the Strategic Communications Laboratories (SCL) website had alluded to as their Philippine client. Some have even suggested the mystery client was Mar Roxas. So just to cover all bases, I talked to sources in the Mar Roxas and the Grace Poe campaign.

This one is for you, DDS, in the hope that you will start asking some hard questions.

Cambridge Analytica boss Alexander Nix dined with two of Rodrigo Duterte’s campaign advisers in 2015

Nix and his companies have come under fire for using data harvested from Facebook, which recently revealed that some 1.2 million Filipinos on Facebook were affected by the data breach

When Alexander Nix, the recently suspended boss of Cambridge Analytica, went to Manila in May 2015, he did more than deliver a talk on his new method of managing elections.

Nix dined with Jose Gabriel “Pompee” La Viña and Peter Tiu Laviña, cousins who later played key roles in Rodrigo Duterte’s presidential campaign, notable for its use of social media. At the time, Nix identified himself as a board director of Cambridge Analytica’s parent company, Strategic Communications Laboratories (SCL).

Peter snapped photographs of Nix’s talk at the National Press Club (NPC) in Manila and his meal at the club’s dining room, and posted them on his Facebook page. Also present on that occasion were NPC president Joel Sy Egco – now Undersecretary at the Presidential Communications Operations Office or PCOO – and Taipan Millan, a lawyer and family friend of Duterte.

Six months after that meal with Nix, both cousins were among those who convinced Duterte to run for president. Duterte appointed “Pompee” La Viña as his social media director – a first in Philippine election history – and Peter Laviña as his campaign spokesman.

    When Alexander Nix, the recently suspended boss of Cambridge Analytica, went to Manila in May 2015, he did more than deliver a talk on his new method of managing elections.

    Nix dined with Jose Gabriel “Pompee” La Viña and Peter Tiu Laviña, cousins who later played key roles in Rodrigo Duterte’s presidential campaign, notable for its use of social media. At the time, Nix identified himself as a board director of Cambridge Analytica’s parent company, Strategic Communications Laboratories (SCL).

    Peter snapped photographs of Nix’s talk at the National Press Club (NPC) in Manila and his meal at the club’s dining room, and posted them on his Facebook page. Also present on that occasion were NPC president Joel Sy Egco – now Undersecretary at the Presidential Communications Operations Office or PCOO – and Taipan Millan, a lawyer and family friend of Duterte.

    Six months after that meal with Nix, both cousins were among those who convinced Duterte to run for president. Duterte appointed “Pompee” La Viña as his social media director – a first in Philippine election history – and Peter Laviña as his campaign spokesman.

    Sources who worked on the campaigns of Duterte’s two rival candidates told the South China Morning Post they had never met nor heard of Nix or SCL.

    The source who worked on the presidential campaign of Senator Grace Poe said he was not aware of any contact from Nix or SCL. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity for lack of authority to comment, added: “We used our own social media strategy.”

    Ibarra Gutierrez, the spokesman for Mar Roxas, the ruling party contender, said the same.

    How Cambridge Analytica’s parent company helped ‘man of action’ Rodrigo Duterte win the 2016 Philippines election

    “[The campaign had] no organised effort to the extent others were utilising social media,” he said. “The focus of the campaign was traditional organising of local political allies at the grass roots level.”

    He laughed off recent accusations from Duterte supporters that it was Roxas and not Duterte who was the unidentified client of SCL in the Philippines. SCL had previously posted on its website it had managed elections for a male politician in the Philippines, who it recommended be rebranded into a tough crimebuster. This post has since been removed but archived copies remain.

    I’m not sure who [Alexander Nix] is. I attended one forum at the NPC where a foreigner was resource speaker. Can’t recall if it was this guy you are mentioning
    Peter Tiu Laviña

    Gutierrez said they had neglected to use social media because “we simply underestimated its impact on the elections”. He explained they based their strategy on a survey that indicated Filipinos got 70 per cent of their news from television.

    Duterte won the election, although without a majority of votes. Roxas was a distant second, closely followed by Poe.

    Basking in post-election glory, Pompee La Viña credited “Duterte social media warriors” for the win. He could not be reached for comment for this story.

    However, his cousin, Peter, denied – via Facebook Messenger – the Duterte camp had contracted Nix or SCL for the election.

    “We never had any foreign help during the campaign,” Peter Tiu Laviña said.

    Asked how many times he met Nix, he replied: “I’m not sure who he is. I attended one forum at the NPC where a foreigner was resource speaker. Can’t recall if it was this guy you are mentioning.”

    He did not reply whether this was the only time he had met this foreigner.

    The “intervention” of foreigners and foreign entities in Philippine elections is a criminal offence. But to be punishable, such meddling has to occur during the campaign period, according the Commission on Elections (Comelec) regulations.

    Christian Monsod, a former Comelec chairman, said the Post’s reporting of the activities of Nix and SCL in Manila provided “sufficient grounds” for a preliminary investigation. Such an investigation could consider “the accountability of any candidate or political party as principal, accomplice or accessory to the crime”.

    Nix and his companies have come under fire for using data harvested from Facebook, which recently revealed that some 1.2 million Filipinos on Facebook were affected by the data breach.

    I wonder how much moolah was paid for this firm. hmmm

    Harvested Facebook data 'used to elect Duterte'

    MANILA - The British consulting firm at the centre of a data mining scandal linked to the 2016 United States presidential race harvested information of about 1.2 million Facebook users in the Philippines, purportedly to help elect Mr Rodrigo Duterte to the presidency, according to media reports.

    A post written last week by Facebook chief technology officer Mike Schroepfer said the data of 1,175,870 Filipino users may have been improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica.

    The political consultancy hired by the Trump campaign is accused of siphoning information on 87 million Facebook users and using it to target political messages.

    Outside the United States, the Philippines saw the most number of Facebook data go to Cambridge Analytica.

    The South China Morning Post reported that the consultancy's parent firm, Strategic Communications Laboratories (SCL), boasted on its website that it helped get Mr Duterte elected by rebranding him from being "kind and honourable" to a tough crime fighter.

    "In the run-up to the national elections, the incumbent client was widely perceived as both kind and honourable, qualities his campaign team thought were potentially election-winning," SCL said in a post that it had since removed from its website.

    "But SCL's research showed that many groups within the electorate were more likely to be swayed by qualities such as toughness and decisiveness.

    "SCL used the cross-cutting issue of crime to rebrand the client as a strong, no-nonsense man of action, who would appeal to the true values of the voters."

    Mr Duterte beat four other candidates, largely on a promise to rid the Philippines of crime and corruption, and on an image as a straight-shooting, man-of-the-people who transformed his once crime-infested city into one of the nation's safest through a brutal response to criminals.

    A 2015 photo of two of Mr Duterte's key campaign officials dining with Mr Alexander Nix, who at the time ran Cambridge Analytica, had also surfaced.

    Cambridge Analytica suspended Mr Nix last month after a television broadcast in which he was recorded suggesting his outfit had used seduction and bribery to entrap politicians and influence foreign elections.

    Mr Nix had spend much of the past year making bold claims about the role Cambridge Analytica played in the election of Mr Trump.

    The two officials from Mr Duterte's campaign denied on Monday (April 9) having had business dealings with Mr Nix.

    One of them, Mr Jose Gabriel La Vina, who was Mr Duterte's social media director, told the online news site Rappler that while he recalled meeting Mr Nix at a forum organised by the National Press Club, "we couldn't afford a consultant like him".

    "What I recall was they were presenting him to the media in the hope of getting clients," he said.

    But Mr La Vina admitted that Mr Nix's presentation during the forum "influenced my work".

    "I picked up on the idea of elections being driven by emotions, and also that was what was happening on the Facebook battlefield," he told Rappler.

    Mr Joel Egco, a former journalist who is now under-secretary at the Presidential Communications Operations Office, was also in the photo.

    He told The Straits Times that while he saw Mr Nix exchange pleasantries with Mr La Vina and his cousin, Mr Peter La Vina, who was then Mr Duterte's campaign spokesman, the three hardly talked.

    "Nix was a nobody. No one was paying much attention to him," said Mr Egco.

    Mr Duterte's political party was known to have hired hired strategists who helped him transform his modest online presence, creating an army of Facebook personalities and bloggers worldwide.

    His large base of followers - enthusiastic and often vicious - was sometimes called the Duterte Die-Hard Supporters, or simply DDS.

    They targeted about 44 million Filipinos who were online, with nine in 10 having Facebook accounts, mostly through their smartphones.

    An Internet security consultant said the Facebook data culled by Cambridge Analytica "could've told the Duterte campaign exactly whether they were winning or losing".

    buti na lang may web archives.

    SCL Elections was asked to run the election campaign for a Presidential candidate; this included managing all aspects of the 
    campaign including research, strategy and output over a seven-month period. SCL Elections successfully won the election for their candidate.

    si noynoy naman pala. kung sinu-sino pa ang tinuturo.

    Facing national elections, the incumbent client was perceived as kind and honourable – qualities his campaign team thought were election-winning. By contrast, SCL’s research showed that many groups within the electorate were more likely to be swayed by qualities such as ‘tough’ and ‘decisive’. Using the cross-cutting issue of crime, SCL rebranded the client as a strong, no-nonsense man of action.

    Rebranding DU30
    Describing DU30 accurately without naming him, the SCL said on its website that“in the run-up to the national elections, the incumbent client was already perceived as both kind and honorable, qualities his campaign team thought were potentially election-winning. But SCL’s research showed that many groups within the electorate were more likely to be swayed by qualities such as toughness and decisiveness. SCL used the cross-cutting issue of crime to rebrand the client as a strong, no-nonsense man of action who would appeal to the true values of the voters.”

    This post was eventually archived, but not before the South China Morning Post was able to record it for its readers. DU30’s “rebranding” as a tough-talking and foul-mouthed politician became the hallmark of his campaign and ultimately of his presidency. People who thought they knew him (this writer included) could not understand the sudden Kafkaesque metamorphosis of the man—from one who seemed to be appreciative of friends and allies to one who seemed to be perpetually in search of “enemies” to denounce and damn.

    seriously, hanggang ngayon e hindi pa rin sila makapaniwala na natalo sila nung 2016

    at kung ano-anong palusot na lang ang ginagawa nila, para siraan ang kampanya at pagkapanalo ni Digong

    pathetic.
