Northam’s Nightmare is a Perfect Example of Google’s Collusion with Mainstream Media

At what point does the First Amendment yield to the whims of a private company operating in the United States?

There have been no shortage of concerns in our great nation that our right to free speech is disappearing before our very eyes.

The First Amendment is a beautiful, undeniably grand idea.  It has preserved our very way of life here in America for well over 200 years by allowing every man and women in this nation to speak out against the injustices they perceive in their every day lives, and to bring that attention to the highest levels of authority when necessary.

The issue we face today, however, are the gargantuan media companies that our government isn’t regulating in terms of the First Amendment.  Google is a particularly poignant example due to their overwhelming power on the internet.

Google’s only saving grace in these regards is their unregulated, but assumed benevolence.

Simply put, we are crossing our fingers and hoping that Google isn’t that evil or petty or biased.  The issue is that there is plenty of evidence that Google is acting in bizarre and unexplainable ways…especially toward conservative Americans.

For instance, in the case of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s recent racist debacle, Google will let you search for and read a vast number of articles about it.  The problem is, they are all from inadequately auxiliary sources.

You see, the story of Ralph Northam’s bigoted medical school photo was broken by a news site called Big League Politics.  The site has a heavy conservative lean, and so they have been quite obviously shadow-banned by Google.

When you type “Ralph Northam Big League Politics” into Google, you actually will not receive a single link to the powerful, premiere article from the conservative news brand….only references to them in mainstream articles.

How on earth does this happen?  Simple:  Google is adjusting their algorithm to keep Big League Politics out of the search results.  [Author’s note:  If Google would like to provide a better explanation, I’d be glad to publish it.]

How does this jibe with the First Amendment?  Well, it doesn’t, but Google will claim that they are a “private company” that can act as they please.  This is akin to Hitler saying that “private companies” produced the yellow stars that the Nazis forced Germany’s Jews to wear on their clothing, or that a “private company” provided the fuel for their book-burning bonfires.

Then, to top it all off, we add Google’s Orwellian behavior into the mix, and the liberal mainstream media is beginning to look a lot like the fascists of yesteryear.

Worse still, it seems as though there is a coordinated effort by a mafia-like posse of left wing journalists to keep this sort of censorship moving forward:

The Internet once seemed poised to utterly destroy the establishment media. In an era where everyone with a phone and a social media account could reach an audience of millions, the need for professional journalists gatekeeping information seemed pointless.

Yet journalists have savagely fought back against the social media companies that once threatened to displace them. Today, one angry email from a left-wing journalist is enough to get a tech giant to frantically manipulate its algorithms — or even create manual blacklists — to appease them.

The journalists at BuzzFeed have become masters of this tactic. Recently, they launched an investigation into “misinformation” and “hyper-partisan” content on YouTube. A day after the publication of BuzzFeed’s report, YouTube announced it would adjust its algorithms to tackle “misinformation”. The outlet led the media pressure campaign to have Alex Jones booted from Twitter. Anti-censorship comedian Michael Meecham (aka “Count Dankula”) says it was BuzzFeed that made YouTube demonetize his channel, effectively firing him.

Now we must ask ourselves the tough questions here in America:  At what point does the First Amendment yield to the whims of a private company operating in the United States?

Hopefully, the answer is “never” and, hopefully, we let Google know this right away.  Otherwise we’ll all be wearing metaphorical yellow stars before we know it.

 

Save conservative media!

AOC Fails to Mention Amazon Only Bringing 1,500 Jobs Instead of 25,000 After She Interfered

23,500 less jobs. Not good.

It might be time to raise the age limit for members of Congress. However old AOC is is clearly too young. She’s far too naive to be in such a position of power. And worse yet, you just know she’ll run for president in 2024. That’s a devastatingly scary thought. After working to undermine Amazon’s deal to open a headquarters in her state, which would’ve brought with it billions for the local economy and 25,000 jobs, AOC celebrated and Amazon moved on. On Saturday, the Jeff Bezos-led company announced it would open a much, much smaller operation in Manhattan, employing only 1,500 people. In case AOC isn’t sure, that’s a lose of 23,500 potential jobs. She doesn’t care, though. She thinks she won the argument. Naturally, she’s wrong. Go figure. Me waiting on the haters to apologize after we were proven right on Amazon and saved the public billions https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1203093051859750912?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203093051859750912&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Focasio-cortez-declares-victory-after-amazon-announces-offices-in-nyc-but-theres-a-yuge-problem-with-her-story%2F From Daily Mail: However, the congresswoman’s critics were quick to point out that Amazon’s new plans differ significantly from the cancelled HQ2. ‘Another day, another viral misleading tweet from AOC. Amazon is leasing office space in Manhattan for 1,500 employees, which is 6% of the 25,000 jobs its HQ2 in Queens (her district) was supposed to add,’ tweeted Peter J. Hasson, a reporter for the Daily Caller. ‘Amazon is now going to create just 6% of the jobs they would’ve before AOC killed their deal with NYC (1,500 vs 25,000), but by all means take a victory lap for the 23,500 jobs that are never coming to NYC thanks to AOC,’ tweeted Josh Jordan, and marketing-research consultant in Chicago. While we’re here, let’s clear up some GOP disinfo: – “It’s 1500 jobs vs 25,000”: The 25,000 jobs figure was a 10-20 year fantasy # from Amazon, not a promise or…

Democrat Rep. Says Trump Must Be Impeached In Order to ‘Deal With Slavery’ [Watch]

This is some kind of awful, right here…

Texas Rep. Al Green has been calling for President Trump’s impeachment more often than quite possibly any other Democrat in Congress. The guy absolutely loathes the duly-elected leader simply because…his policies are working? His guy didn’t win in 2016? He needs the attention? Who knows? There isn’t a legitimate answer to the question. The only thing Dems understand is that they dislike 45’s tweets so they want him out of office. How mature. Check out Green’s appearance on MSNBC where he finds the nerve to conflate Trump with “slavery,” while ignorantly ignoring that black unemployment is at record low levels in America. From Daily Wire: Green, who has previously stated that Trump must be impeachment or else “he will get reelected,” said this week that there is “no limit” to the number of times that Democrats can try to impeach the president. WATCH: Democrat Rep. Al Green says the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump is needed “to deal with slavery.” MSNBC’s Alex Witt “mmhhhmms” throughout the clip in agreement. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1203420159639277573?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203420159639277573&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fdemocrat-congressman-al-green-trump-must-be-impeached-to-deal-with-slavery Let them keep thinking Trump should be impeached. Let’s see how that plays out for them. As we’ve seen so far, it’s not going well. In fact, it’s going very poorly. Here’s the latest regarding impeachment support, via Washington Examiner: The Emerson poll released Thursday found support for impeachment has dropped from 48% to 43% since October, while opposition to impeachment has risen from 44% to 45%. Independents are key in the shift, with 49% opposing impeachment and only 34% supporting impeachment. In October, 48% of independents supported impeachment and 39% opposed. From Daily Wire: Kurt Volker, the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a top National Security Council official that was on President Donald Trump’s Ukraine phone call, both confirmed during their testimonies on Tuesday that there was…
