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.

Trending: Biden Refers to Cops As the ‘Enemy’ & Now Supports Cutting Police Funding — ‘Absolutely!’

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

Trump or Biden, who will win?

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.

Google

 

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.

Democrat Governor Frees 8,000 Inmates Over COVID-19, But Bans Singing In Churches

Priorities?

Once again, the Golden State continues to lead the nation in crazy. Thanks to radically far-left Governor Gavin Newsom, 8,000 prisoners will be freed due to spikes in coronavirus – which most likely stem from increased testing and Black Lives Matter riots, where police officers are treated like animals. Newsom has no problem banning singing in church, though. From KPIX 5: The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) on Friday said it estimates 8,000 currently incarcerated persons could be eligible for release by end of August under release authority granted to the CDCR Secretary allowing alternative confinement or release in any case in which an emergency endangering the lives of incarcerated persons has occurred or is imminent. The 8,000 inmates to be released are in addition to the state’s reduction of about 10,000 inmates since the start of the pandemic. Jay Jordan, the executive director of Californians for Safety and Justice, noted: “We’re glad the Governor is taking action to release more people. This is absolutely critical for the health and safety of every Californian. Too many people are incarcerated for too long in facilities that spread poor health. Supporting the health and safety of all Californians means releasing people unnecessarily incarcerated and transforming our justice system.” Regarding church, via Fox News: Faith leaders are speaking out after California Gov. Gavin Newsom banned singing and chanting in houses of worship last week due to a surge in coronavirus cases following weeks of protests. “Places of worship must, therefore, discontinue singing and chanting activities and limit indoor attendance to 25 percent of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower,” the new guidelines read as state health officials recommend churches have members sing online from their homes. Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…

Roger Stone Will Not Serve Prison Time, Has Sentence Commuted By POTUS Trump

Freedom!

Liberals are going to have a field day with this one. Then again, they generally go bananas for anything and everything “Trump,” so this will just be more gas on the fire. As of late Friday evening, longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone learned that he won’t be serving time in the big house. From Fox News: Tucker Carlson lauded President Trump’s commutation of longtime Republican political consultant Roger Stone’s prison sentence Friday, saying the 67-year-old had been the victim of a “nakedly political” set-up aimed to put him away for the rest of his “useful and expected life.” Stone was to report to prison Tuesday on charges of witness tampering and making false statements in connection to the Mueller investigation of alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. Carlson said, “His arrest and his trial were nakedly political. It was a set-up. The presiding judge, a political activist called Amy Berman Jackson, issued a gag order that prohibited Stone from defending himself in public or making a living. She bankrupted him as a result.” Here’s the letter from the White House: California Congressman Eric Swalwell’s (D) 2020 presidential campaign lasted a solid five minutes. Even he probably knew he didn’t stand a chance. But that hasn’t stopped the radically far-left liberal from saying some very, very silly things. Swalwell knows the lines he’s supposed to parrot and does it well – or, at least, well enough. He’s just not the most likable of characters. In February, the Democrat suggested a new plan his peers might hatch in order to take down the duly-elected president of the United States.
