Google Election Meddling Concerns Raised by Virginia Voters

Are we comfortable with information being hoarded by companies who are too big to care about impartiality?

Google

The war over our right to information is fully upon us, with internet goliath Google demonstrating why they cannot be trusted to play fair.

Google is, legally, a private company who can do whatever they would like.  This is a cold, hard fact that will likely be examined in the near future by our nation’s top adjudicators in a free speech case, but for the time being, we’re stuck with it.

The worry is, of course, that a vast majority of internet traffic is directed by Google.  Heck, your car is even directed by Google anytime you pull up your GPS.  If Google wanted to write a piece of code that sent everyone to a Starbucks or a Whole Foods, they could do that…and likely with impunity.

So, if Google wants to write a code that misrepresents the search results for a certain political candidate, that would also not be off limits to them as a private company.  And, in Virginia’s 5th congressional district, that appears to be exactly what is happening.

Here are the first website results for republican Denver Riggleman as provided by Google:

Denver Riggleman

Notice anything peculiar in there?  Right in between his official website and his official Facebook link there is a Vox article that aims to paint Riggleman as an oddball and pervert.  Reading the excerpt below the article also adds in a dash of racism – a popular accusation used by democrats to belittle their opponents and cast fear among the electorate.

Now let’s search for his opponent, Leslie Cockburn:

Denver Riggleman

The first four results are from Cockburn’s official outlets, followed by an article praising the candidate from over a month ago.

Even more peculiar is the fact that this Cockburn article wasn’t all that well received, according to statistics from NewsWhip:

Virginia

[Author’s Note: Given the age of the Vox article, these same statistics were not available.  A request made to Vox for this data was not immediately returned.]

So, what is Google’s real role in our electoral process, and are we comfortable with information being hoarded by companies who are too big to care about impartiality?

That is a question that we will need to have answered, and soon, if we are to save our nation from the coming storm.

Save conservative media!

Dozens Of Cops Quit The Force As Seattle Council ‘Defunds Police’

Published

on

The Seattle City Council voted on Monday to cut the Seattle Police Department’s budget, as many cops leave the force as a result of all the hostilities pointed at them from local leadership. The city council held a vote to defund the police, which was passed 8-1. This measure will slash the budget by 18 percent. Granted, radical activists wanted to see the budget cut by 50 percent, but this is still a devastating number. via Daily Wire: Such a move will leave many vacant jobs on the force unfilled and require 911 dispatchers and parking enforcement to be moved outside of SPD jurisdiction. As of Oct. 31, 134 officers have left the force, according to the mayor’s office. In October alone, 23 have thrown in the towel. Democratic Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan expressed her support for the budget, saying in a statement, “I applaud the City Council for taking a more deliberate and measured approach to the 2021 Seattle Police Department budget than occurred this summer which led to the resignation of former SPD Chief Carmen Best.” Nikkita Oliver, a radical Black Lives Matter activist who played a leadership role in city’s short-lived Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (or CHAZ) last summer, said during a virtual meeting after the vote: These are all really exciting things that have been won after many, many years of mobilizing and partnering together. They’ve been won because of the uprising and defense of Black lives, and the many people who put their feet to the ground, who have made calls, sent emails, and organized their communities. The president of the Seattle Police Officers Guild, Mike Solan, wasn’t quite as excited about the vote, referring to the council as “naive” and warned that the response to calls coming in to 911 would take longer to…

New Poll Says Trump Will Retain Power Over Republican Party

Published

on

According to a brand new poll, President Donald Trump is going to keep a lot of power and influence over the Republican Party and, should he not get a second term, will be the heavy favorite to become the 2024 GOP nominee. The poll was conducted by Morning Consult/Politico, and says Trump is already at the top of a list of 14 potential presidential candidates, with 68 percent of GOP voters saying they consider Trump to be the most in touch with the party’s rank and file members. via Newsmax: The poll, conducted from Nov. 21-23 among 669 Republicans and 1,990 voters overall, comes as Trump and many in the party are challenging the election. Newsmax has not called the election. The poll also showed: 71% of Republican voters say Trump is effective and committed to the country’s best interests, but just 17% say the same of congressional Republicans. 56% say Trump is predominantly looking out for the party’s best interests. 54% said they’d back Trump in a primary contest. 12% said they’d back Vice President Mike Pence. 8% would back Donald Trump Jr. against his father. 4% of Republicans each said they would support Texas Sen. Ted Cruz or former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Other members of the GOP, such as Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Rick Scott of Florida, and Josh Hawley of Missouri, got even less support for a potential 2024 presidential bid. President Trump has made it clear already that he wants to continue being influential in the Republican Party. He’s kept Ronna McDaniel as the chair to the Republican National Committee and has already built a political action committee. What this means is that if the left succeeds in stealing this election, they might be ousting Trump from the White House, but they are…
