Internet Giant’s Election Meddling Exposed by New Research

This is the sort of power that we wouldn’t grant to even the most benevolent or pragmatic person, so why has America allowed a corporation such gravity?

While the left decried the possibility of Russian “election meddling” until they were blue in the face back in 2016, their friends over at Google were taking lessons.

You see, the internet itself exists parallel to our “real world” in many ways.  We use this channel of information often for convenience, paying bills and ordering goods and services through the click of a mouse or the tap of a finger.  Data is stored, packed, sent, received, and acted upon just as though we had committed these acts in the real world, leading many to tout the internet as some sort fo “new reality”.

This is dangerous thinking, folks, given that the internet itself is a privately controlled space.  Enormous tech companies such as Google and Facebook are the de facto kings of the world wide web, steering more traffic between them than outside of their purview.  This has granted companies such as these an extraordinarily precarious grip on public knowledge and what was once the freedom of information.

Just how monopolistic are these private companies?  A new research study shows that Google actually influenced the American 2018 midterms, flipping congressional districts.

New research from psychologist and search engine expert Dr. Robert Epstein shows that biased Google searches had a measurable impact on the 2018 midterm elections, pushing tens of thousands of votes towards the Democrat candidates in three key congressional races, and potentially millions more in races across the country.

The study, from Epstein and a team at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology (AIBRT), analyzed Google searches related to three highly competitive congressional races in Southern California. In all three races, the Democrat won — and Epstein’s research suggests that Google search bias may have tipped them over the edge.

The research follows a previous study conducted in 2016 which showed that biased Google results pushed votes to Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. Democrats and Google executives have disputed these findings.

Just how bad was it?

According to Epstein’s study, at least 35,455 undecided voters in the three districts may have been persuaded to vote for a Democrat candidate because of slanted Google search results. Considering that each vote gained by a Democrat is potentially a vote lost by a Republican, this means more than 70,910 votes may have been lost by Republicans in the three districts due to Google bias. In one of these districts, CA 45, the Democrat margin of victory was just over 12,000 votes.

This is the sort of power that we wouldn’t grant to even the most benevolent or pragmatic person, so why has America allowed a corporation such gravity?

Perhaps it is because of convenience, or perhaps it is due to the unprecedented nature of Google as an informational gatekeeper.  In either case, the only acceptable course of action is to educate Americans on the dangers of internet monopolies, and remind the nation to always question authority…especially if it’s on the web.

Ilhan Omar Caught Red-Handed In ‘Cash-For-Ballots Harvesting Scheme’ — Project Veritas Report

Caught ya!

Everybody knows that Ilhan Omar is corrupt. Her disturbing track record proves it. However, this new blemish on her resume is likely to turn more heads than usual. If the mainstream media was honest with the American public, they’d report on this story from Project Veritas. Here’s the deal, via Project Veritas: [Minneapolis–Sept. 27, 2020] Project Veritas investigators revealed a ballot harvesting scheme here involving clan and political allies and associates of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) in the first of a series of reports. “Numbers don’t lie. Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentees’ ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these, my car is full. All these are for Jamal Osman… We got 300 today for Jamal Osman only,” said Liban Mohamed in a series of Snapchat videos posted July 1 and July 2 on his own Snapchat profile. CONTINUED: Mohamed said he was collecting the ballots to help his brother win the city’s Aug. 11 special election for a vacant Ward 6 city council race—which was held the same day as the primary for Omar’s MN-05 congressional seat. Ward 6 is the heart of the city’s Somali community and the Omar’s political base. James O’Keefe, the founder and CEO of Project Veritas, said: “Ballot harvesting is real and it has become a big business. Our investigation into this ballot harvesting ring demonstrates clearly how these unscrupulous operators exploit the elderly and immigrant communities—and have turned the sacred ballot box into a commodities trading desk.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/DonaldJTrumpJr/status/1310385604962775042?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310385604962775042%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-project-veritas-exposes-ilhan-omar-connection-to-illegal-ballot-harvesting-voter-fraud-scheme%2F VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWK56l2VaLY&feature=emb_title

Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Republicans’ Are ‘Spineless, Misogynistic Hypocrites’

How original!

The New York Times, a hysterically funny satire “news”paper, or, a liberal version of The Babylon Bee, if you will, put out a report on Sunday about President Trump’s taxes. Yeah, they’re back on that train again. AOC gleaned the highlights, then decided to tweet at her uninformed, politically backward social media followers. Check this out, via The Hill: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) slammed President Trump on Sunday over a report in The New York Times detailing his personal tax contributions over the past 20 years. In a tweet, the freshman New York lawmaker pointed to the taxes reportedly paid by the president and former media mogul in 2016 and 2017 — $750 a year — as being less than she paid while working as a bartender in New York City prior to her election to office in 2018. LOOK: https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1310384989524185093?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310384989524185093%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fhouse%2F518529-ocasio-cortez-trump-contributed-less-in-taxes-than-waitresses-and-undocumented Next, Ocasio-Cortez hammered Republicans for being “spineless, misogynistic hypocrites.” https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1310388421286920193?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310388421286920193%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fhouse%2F518529-ocasio-cortez-trump-contributed-less-in-taxes-than-waitresses-and-undocumented For a member of the lower chamber, who swore an oath to the United States of America, to claim that illegal immigration should be accepted, is absolutely preposterous. AOC said, “We can’t go on with kinda these xenophobic narratives that undocumented people are somehow wrong.” See how she words it? She’s making the uninformed believe that conservatives feel that illegals are bad people. No, that’s not it at all – IT’S THE ACT OF CROSSING THE BORDER…ILLEGALLY!! Why is that such a difficult concept for her to grasp? VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8LwqJ_6T3Q&feature=emb_title Check this out, via Washington Examiner: Conservative political commentator Candace Owens got involved in a Twitter argument between former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, accusing the New York congresswoman of hypocrisy in her response to the coronavirus.
