DOJ Making Moves To Break Up Google, Calling It The ‘Most Important Antitrust Case In A Generation’

Published

on

The Department of Justice is moving to file an antitrust lawsuit against Big Tech company Google on Tuesday after a very thorough investigation was launched into the company over alleged monopolistic behavior.

This lawsuit will allege that Google has been engaging in practices deemed to be “anticompetitive” in order to help insulate and protect its search and search-advertising businesses, according to a source from the Justice Department.

Google has frozen out competitors through contracts between the tech giant and browsers, carriers, and mobile phone manufacturers that give Google such prime standing as the default search engine across a variety of platforms as to bar any competitors from beginning to compete with the tech giant. Googles search queries make up roughly 80% of all those in the U.S.

Google has argued in the past that billions of people choosing to use its product every day is evidence of the company’s competitive edge, not monopolistic behavior. The legal battle between the tech giant and the U.S. government is likely to span years.

The lawsuit follows an investigation into the company that lasted for more than a year and took place in a wider investigation into Silicon Valley tech giants for alleged anticompetitive practices.

The president himself has been among the most ardent voices speaking out about the monopolistic behavior of tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as drawing attention to their censorship of conservative views. Some of Trump’s most loyal supporters, like Sen. Josh Hawley, were very pleased to hear about the lawsuit.

“Today’s lawsuit is the most important antitrust case in a generation. Google and its fellow Big Tech monopolists exercise unprecedented power over the lives of ordinary Americans, controlling everything from the news we read to the security of our most personal information,” the senator said in a recently released statement.

“And Google in particular has gathered and maintained that power through illegal means. That is why I launched a sweeping antitrust investigation of Google when I was Missouri Attorney General, and that’s why I stand behind the Department of Justice’s actions today. But to be clear – this is just a first step, and I will continue to fight for the legislative solutions needed to end the tyranny of Big Tech,” Hawley said.

Tech companies largely have a leftist bias, and since they rely on the help of the government in order to continue to expand their businesses, it’s not that hard to understand why they would push against conservative values, seeing as how those principles seek to shrink the intrusion of government into the private sector and would leave companies like Google at the full mercy of the free market.

Guess they don’t have as much faith in their product as they pretend to have.

‘Bout time!!

Elderly people are supposed to be more effected by COVID-19 than younger folks. Yet in Florida, with its large population of Boomers, the “death rate” isn’t all that different from New York, even though one state has taken a hardline approach and the other much more relaxed. Goes to show that “social distancing” and wearing a mask were never really the answer to the China virus. From Fox News: Texas’s Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday said he planned to open the state next week “100%,” roughly a year after the coronavirus pandemic broke out throughout the U.S. Abbott issued an executive order that rescinds many of the state’s previous orders, allowing all businesses in the state to fully reopen and revoking the statewide mask mandate as of next Wednesday. And in Mississippi… https://twitter.com/tatereeves/status/1366849019935412228?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1366849019935412228%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-mississippi-also-stopping-mask-mandate-and-reopening-all-businesses-without-restriction%2F Speaking of New York, why is Andrew Cuomo still in office? From Fox News: A third woman has accused New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of unwanted advances. According to The New York Times, 33-year-old Anna Ruch has claimed that Cuomo asked to kiss her at a wedding in 2019. In an interview Monday, she specified that Cuomo put his hand on her bare lower back.

Behar: Dems Should ‘Ignore’ Allegations Against Cuomo Like GOP Did With Kavanaugh

Protect Cuomo at all costs!

Behar is a proud American who loves her country. Okay, enough with the jokes. Joy is absolutely, without question, an anti-American nut who wants to see the United States fail. She has pretty much made this clear for a long while now. One of President Trump’s fiercest celebrity critics, Behar was at it again on Tuesday morning. The talk show co-host just couldn’t help herself. Ain’t she just lovely? From Breitbart: Joy Behar told her co-hosts on Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” that Democrats should “ignore everything” regarding the allegations of sexual harassment against Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) using what she claimed is the “Republican model.” In a clip from Fox News, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said, “Here’s what I would tell my Democratic colleagues to do, follow the Republican model. We had a Republican nominee for the Supreme Court be accused of something the day before we voted, the moment before we voted. We could have gone ahead and said this. It’s too late. You sat on it. It’s not fair. We stopped the entire damn process.” Behar barked, “Well, yes, I do agree with them they should use the Republican model, which is to basically ignore everything like they did with Kavanaugh, they had no witnesses, they had a three-day investigation. Rob Porter — remember him, physically abused two of his wives. I remember Trump said, ‘I wish him well.’ Didn’t they back up Roy Moore for a long time?”
