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:

[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!

Bloomberg Sets Goal To End Sale Of Gas-Fueled Vehicles By 2035

Published

on

The one thing we can all count on every presidential election cycle is that politicians of all stripes will come forward and make absurd promises that tickle the ears of voters, but are more than likely impossible to actually keep. Then again, keeping promises isn’t something most politicians, especially those on the left, are interested in at all. It’s simply a means to grab power, and unfortunately, many voters are naive enough to fall for it. A great example of this “pie in the sky” kind of strategy for winning votes comes to us in the form of Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg who has now promised to end the sale of gas-fueled vehicles by the year 2035, a move geared toward appealing to the climate change fanatics. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Bloomberg’s proposal released Friday targets the transportation sector, the largest source of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, as part of his overall goal of cutting emissions economy-wide 50% by 2030 in order to fully decarbonize before midcentury. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, is trying to distinguish himself in the Democratic field by promoting his philanthropic success working with environmental groups to shut down more than half the nation’s coal plants. “Mike is unique in his track record committing to this issue,” a senior adviser to the Bloomberg campaign told reporters on a press call. Bloomberg has made a pledge to see to it that the construction of natural gas plants are halted and wants to see 80 percent clean electricity by 2028. Lofty goals, right? He also released a plan this week that details how he wants all new buildings to be zero-carbon by the year 2025 and have old ones retrofitted so that natural gas appliances will be completely phased out through…

Parnas Says Ex-Trump Attorney Told Him To ‘Be A Good Boy’ And Sacrifice Himself For President Trump

Published

on

The plot continues to thicken in the impeachment proceedings against President Trump as an associate of the president’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is now claiming that an attorney visited him in jail and asked him to sacrifice himself to protect Trump. Lev Parnas, who has been charged with violating campaign finance laws, recently recounted a conversation that took place between himself and Trump lawyer John Dowd in an interview he did with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Thursday. The Washington Examiner has more: “I started seeing in the process of the bail stuff, the way things were going on, they were more concentrating on — I didn’t feel that they were trying to get me out,” Parnas, 47, said. “John Dowd, instead of comforting me, trying to calm me down, telling me, ’It’s going to be OK, don’t worry,’ basically started talking to be like a drill sergeant, giving me orders, like, ‘Be a good boy.’” Parnas clarified that he was not quoting Dowd verbatim, but that’s how he interpreted Dowd’s message. He said he fired Dowd during that heated conversation. “Were they telling you to sacrifice yourself in order to protect the president?” Maddow asked. “That’s what I felt,” Parnas said. “They tried to keep me quiet.” Parnas allegedly aided Giuliani in a campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his involvement in a potential abuse of power to protect his son, Hunter, from an investigation into some rather shady business dealings. Parnas has also handed over some documents and messages to the House Intelligence Committee that includes more detailed information about the “pressure campaign” which also includes a letter Giuliani sent to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The letter seems to indicate that Giuliani was acting at the direction of the president. The president commented on…
