For more than a year now I’ve been following the devious and tangled web of criminality and dark money that’s been at the heart of this monster the British created, “BREXIT.” There is no doubt that BREXIT would never have happened without the clever technological assistance of Facebook and other nefarious companies that make up Silicon Valley.
