Local web design firm with Donald Trump presidential campaign contract offers 100 jobs as election nears

Last June [2015], Giles-Parscale was selected to build Trump’s main campaign website after designing for the company since 2011 for other ventures. In May, Brad Parscale, the president of Giles-Parscale, was promoted as a vendor of the Trump campaign to oversee digital marketing.

The local company has netted nearly $2 million connected to a variety of services in the digital realm, according to documents on file with the Federal Election Commission.

That’s one of the biggest expenditures for the Trump campaign.

Other major vendors used by the Donald Trump for president campaign include $17.5 million for Rick Reed Media, a public relations and marketing firm based in Virginia. and more than $3 million to Ace Specialties, a uniform store.”

“WASHINGTON — The FBI’s wide-ranging criminal investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election may include scrutiny of the Trump campaign’s San Antonio-based digital operation overseen by senior White House adviser Jared Kushner.

CNN reported that along with Kushner’s contacts with Russians and his relationship with fired national security adviser Michael Flynn, the FBI is looking at the campaign’s 2016 data analytics programs conducted largely out of San Antonio under the direction of local digital advertising executive Brad Parscale.

Parscale, 41, became heavily involved in the Trump campaign after designing a website for the campaign exploratory committee and carrying out other tasks for the Trump family. He worked under Kushner. By the campaign’s end, Parscale ran Trump’s digital operation, media buys and overall advertising, an exceptionally large role for someone with little experience in political campaigns.

“The data, that’s the big question that everybody wants to ask me,” Parscale said. “Right now, it’s Mr. Trump’s and he’s going to continue to build that data, and I’m going to Trump Tower as we speak to continue to cultivate that data.”

Parscale, 40, a Kansas native, arrived at the University of Texas at San Antonio on a basketball scholarship. He graduated from Trinity University in 1999, his basketball career cut short by a back injury. He’s endured seven surgeries on his back, knee and ankle.

The company he founded, Parscale Media, joined with Giles Design to create a web design, web marketing, and branding firm.

 Parscale joined the Trump campaign after designing websites and doing modest tasks for the Trump family for several years. He rose swiftly in the campaign under Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Deploying a database called Project Alamo, Parscale oversaw Trump’s digital operation, television media buys and overall advertising — an uncommonly large campaign portfolio, especially for someone who professes to have no abiding interest in electoral politics.  San Antonio Express-News

Parscale has plans for San Antonio By Brian Chasnoff  February 1, 2017 San Antonio Express-News

In the last days of the Trump campaign, he produced a two-minute ad that featured Trump decrying “global special interests” over footage of Clinton, George Soros, Janet Yellen and Lloyd Blankfein — all Jewish, except Clinton.

Parscale is now helping to lead a new pro-Trump nonprofit called America First that echoes the name of a committee created in 1940 to keep the nation out of World War II. The spokesman for the original America First was Charles Lindbergh, a celebrity aviator who praised Nazi Germany and once gave a speech warning of the dangers of “the Jewish race.”

“I want to form a (political action committee) in the city of San Antonio to help advocate for the business community because I feel some of our local groups are unwilling to stand up to local officials,” he said.” San Antonio Express-News

For Oczkowski, who worked for Governor Scott Walker’s primary campaign, such an oversight seems natural. “The Clinton campaign was built like a traditional big campaign, where there are political norms that go into things,” he says. “Probably if they did know, they didn’t want to admit it to themselves.”

The election upset already has inspired headlines about data being dead. Trump did, after all, reject the need for data, only to hire Cambridge Analytica during the summer after clinching the nomination.” Wired

Inside the Trump Bunker, With Days to Go  Bloomberg, October 27, 2016

“On Oct. 19, as the third and final presidential debate gets going in Las Vegas, Donald Trump’s Facebook and Twitter feeds are being manned by Brad Parscale, a San Antonio marketing entrepreneur, whose buzz cut and long narrow beard make him look like a mixed martial arts fighter. His Trump tie has been paired with a dark Zegna suit. A lapel pin issued by the Secret Service signals his status. He’s equipped with a dashboard of 400 prewritten Trump tweets. “Command center,” he says, nodding at his laptop.”  Read article for examples of Tweets from Parscale

Trump’s Data Firm Is Selling A Top Conservative Think Tank Its Trump Voter Playbook Daily Beast The Heritage Foundation hasn’t always agreed with the president. But it recognizes the cash that his followers can bring. Lachlan Markay September 29, 2017 “Three weeks after Donald Trump was elected president, a data company owned by one of his wealthiest supporters began cashing in. The company, Cambridge Analytica, inked a deal with the nation’s leading conservative think tank, the Heritage Foundation, for the purpose of hitting up Trump voters for donations.

The marrying of the two institutions was made easier by a shared principle. Cambridge Analytica is run by Rebekah Mercer, who with her father provided major cash infusions for Trump and groups supporting him during the 2016 campaign. Mercer is also a board member of the Heritage Foundation, the nation’s flagship conservative think tank.

But the alliance also reflects a new reality within the broader conservative universe. Trump didn’t just bring an idiosyncratic set of political priorities with him to Washington. He brought a massive amount of first-time voters and supporters as well—individuals that establishment institutions like Heritage would want to mine for dollars.

Heritage had used Cambridge Analytica’s services before. From late 2015 through June 2016, the firm provided “statistical models to identify new donors” and developed digital ads for the group, according to documents Heritage filed with New York regulators.”

Around October 2019, they learned from a financial institution that they may be under federal investigation and started using encrypted messaging apps and added a website statement about Kolfage receiving a salary starting in January 2020.

Andrew Badolato, Bannon associate since 2003: Behind the Casey Key address Steve Bannon used, a questionable associate The Florida Times-Union April 24, 2018 “Badolato’s past — according to county and federal court records, state business filings, Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office reports, interviews with former associates and internal documents obtained by the Herald-Tribune — includes numerous lawsuits, substantial monetary judgments and sizeable Internal Revenue Service liens filed against him; business dealings with convicted felons for stock-related fraud; an extortion attempt after he borrowed money from a self-described mobster that led to him wearing a wire for the FBI; an association with a Costa Rican offshore firm that was called a “money laundering hub” by the Justice Department; and sexual assault allegations made by three women over a period of four years that allegedly took place inside his million-dollar home on Casey Key Road.

Badolato, a 1982 graduate of Cardinal Mooney High in Sarasota, has never been charged with a crime, nor has he been the subject of any “regulatory body investigation, proceeding or hearing,” according to a letter from his attorney, Wil Florin.”  Badolato took a $12,500 loan in September 2008 from Gambino crime family associate Luis Caputo of Sarasota, and Badolato helped as a witness to his arrest.

Bannon used Badolato’s 3108 Casey Key Rd, Nokomis, FL, address on his August 22, 2016 voter registration while CEO of the Trump Campaign. “Richard Painter, chief ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush from 2005-2007 and currently a professor at the University of Minnesota, said Bannon’s recurring 13-year relationship with Badolato should have precluded him from becoming a powerful senior White House advisor with unlimited access and undeniable influence.

Finance and Entertainment Success

Bannon graduated from Harvard Business School in 1985, and then became a mergers and acquisitions banker with Goldman Sachs. In 1990, he founded Bannon & Co., a boutique investment bank that specialized in media. He soon brokered a deal that landed him an ownership stake in a then little-known TV program called Seinfeld, which eventually generated massive profits through syndication.

After selling his company in 1998, Bannon became a partner in an entertainment production and management company called The Firm. He also devoted more time to his own creative interests, adapting a book about Ronald Reagan into a 2004 biopic called In the Face of Evil.”

STEVE BANNON’S POPULIST MEDIA EMPIRE IS FUNDED WITH OFFSHORE CASH Vanity Fair Including his Government Accountability Institute, which lists exposing the “misuse of taxpayer monies” as part of its mission. BY TINA NGUYEN  NOVEMBER 7, 2017 “the publication of the Paradise Papers over the weekend revealed that Breitbart itself is largely funded by up to $60 million that, thanks to the Mercers’ use of an offshore investment vehicle in Bermuda, is not taxed in the U.S.

According to The Guardian, Robert Mercer—the billionaire hedge-fund manager and Trump supporter who until recently held a majority stake in Breitbart (he announced last week that he would transfer that stake to his children)—created a network of offshore accounts in Bermuda to fund the Mercer Family Foundation, which dumps money into conservative causes. The foundation reportedly draws its money from “feeder funds”—offshoots of the main hedge fund Renaissance Technologies—registered to Bermuda law firm Appleby. (A similar system was set up to manage the retirement accounts of Renaissance employees.) The Mercers then sold off their Bermuda investments to finance the foundation, avoiding the up-to-39-percent U.S. tax rate normally levied on nonprofits funded by investments financed through debt. “This is simple, but ingenious,” an investment adviser told the Guardian. ‘You take retirement plans or foundations, you invest them in a hedge fund, and even if the value rises 100 percent, you can sell off the investments with no tax consequences.'”

The e-mails, which date back to October of 2015, show that Bannon, who was then the vice-president of Cambridge Analytica, an American firm largely owned by the U.S. hedge-fund billionaire Robert Mercer, was in the loop on discussions taking place at the time between his company and the leaders of Leave.EU, a far-right nationalist organization.

Bannon, backed by billionaire, prepares to go to war

Steve Bannon’s next moves will be all about the billionaire Mercer family. I’m told Bannon, who visited New York this week, met with Bob Mercer and together they will be a well-funded force on the outside.
  • Bannon has felt liberated since it became clear he was being pushed out, according to friends. He’s told associates he has a “killing machine” in Breitbart News, and it’s possible he returns to lead their editorial operation.
  • A source familiar with Breitbart’s operations told me they would go “thermonuclear” against “globalists” that Bannon and his friends believe are ruining the Trump administration, and by extension, America.
  • Watch for Breitbart’s Washington Editor Matt Boyle to be a central figure in this war — which has already begun — against White House officials like HR McMaster, Dina Powell, Gary Cohn, and Jared and Ivanka.

Bannon’s billionaire meeting to plot a path forward  Axios “Bob Mercer and Steve Bannon had a five hour meeting Wednesday to plot out next steps, said a source with knowledge of the meeting. They plotted strategy going forward — both political and media strategy. The meeting was at Mercer’s estate on Long Island. Mercer had dinner the next night at Bedminster with President Trump and a small group of donors. The source said Mercer and Bannon “remain strong supporters of President Trump’s and his agenda.”

The day after the disastrous “Unite The Right” Rally in Charlottesville, VA:   Trump advisers signal the knives are out for Bannon  Sun August 13, 2017 Bridgewater, New Jersey (CNN) “The comments come as a source inside the White House tells CNN that White House chief of staff John Kelly has soured on Bannon, a political operative with deep ties to the ‘alt-right’ and the former head of the conservative news site Breitbart. Bannon is seen as pursuing his own agenda, which does not fit mesh with the power structure Kelly is putting in place, the source added. A second source told CNN on Saturday that it’s not only Kelly and Bannon whose relationship is on the rocks, it is also Bannon and the President….His job was on the line in April, according to a source close to the White House, after Trump grew frustrated with his inability to cooperate and work with others. The chilling came as Bannon fought with Jared Kushner, a top Trump aide and the President’s son-in-law. “I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late,” Trump told the New York Post in April.” CNN

The Following PBS Video, “Bannon’s War“, is an excellent introduction.

February 23, 2017, Speaking at CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) Bannon vows a daily fight for ‘deconstruction of the administrative state’ Washington Post     

He thinks Deconstruction and Devastating war are good things. The Fourth Turning by William Strauss and Neil Howe. ”

Bannon’s Views Can Be Traced to a Book That Warns, ‘Winter Is Coming’

The book delineates history into four seasonal cycles, or “turnings”: growth, maturation, decay and destruction. It is the kind of wild, provocative idea that Mr. Bannon loves. But it is also just the kind of thinking that his opponents see as evidence that he is too Machiavellian and idiosyncratic for the job of President Trump’s chief strategist.

The basis of his worldview — which has been described as everything from Leninist to alt-right, an extremist fringe movement associated with white nationalism — is still shrouded in mystery and conjecture. But by his own telling, much of the foundation for his political beliefs can be found in the book, which predicts that America is hurtling toward a crisis on par with the American Revolution, the Civil War and the Great Depression.

I don’t think there’s any doubt that the world is in the beginning state of a crisis that it can’t avoid,” Mr. Bannon said in a recent interview.” NY Times

The ‘Deconstruction of the Administrative State’ 

The Fourth Turning will trigger a political upheaval beyond anything Americans could today imagine. New civic authority will have to take root, quickly and firmly — which won’t be easy if the discredited rules and rituals of the old regime remain fully in place. We should shed and simplify the federal government in advance of the Crisis by cutting back sharply on its size and scope but without imperiling its core infrastructure.

The rhythmic, seasonal nature of history that the authors identify foresees an inevitable period of decay and destruction that will tear down existing social and political institutions. Mr. Bannon has famously argued that the overreaching and ineffective federal government — “the administrative state,” as he calls it — needs to be dismantled. And Mr. Trump, he said, has just begun the process.

As Mr. Howe said in an interview with The Times: “There has to be a period in which we tear down everything that is no longer functional. And if we don’t do that, it’s hard to ever renew anything. Forests need fires, and rivers need floods. These happen for a reason.” NY Times

“Bannon, Kushner, and Flynn have been working closely together for two years,” added another source who was part of the Trump transition, again speaking anonymously to discuss sensitive policy discussions”…Bannon and Kushner formed the Strategic Initiatives Group: “Less-charitable observers say the SIG is intended to be an alternative lodestar of power and influence to just possibly supersede the advice coming out of the traditional centers of influence like the National Security Council and the wider agencies of government.”  January 31, 2017  Steve Bannon Builds A New Node Of Power In The Trump White House   The Daily Beast

And with people he calls ideological allies now in the White House, Dugin says he’s bullish on better ties with the U.S., too.”
