Skip to comments.Is There a Search Engine Uncorrupted by the Obama Admin?
Posted on 06/27/2013 6:21:46 PM PDT by originalbuckeye
Is there a safe search engine? I am not that computer savvy but would love to know if there ar ANY search engines that haven't rolled over for Obama's Big Brother Government.
Duck Dusk Go and Iquick
Nope nada nothing is safe
Thank you. Will try one.
I use Startpage for all searching. It does not record your IP.
Startpage results come from the back door of other search engines...www.Startpage.com
how do you know that
They don't record IP address and you can open the page via proxy if you'd like......however, sometimes you can't use certain functions in the target webpage in the proxy mode.
I have also heard that.
I do not know for a fact, that is the truth, but they claim so.
I suspect that Ixquick and startpage are one in the same.
Their home pages are identical.
Only one I know ids the Encyclopedia Britannica, but only the printed version.
That is also my understanding.
I believe they were originally ixquick, then changed to startpage (also) when that better word became available.
AFAIK it is the same search engine.
I don’t trust any of them. But I don’t care if they track me either. My philosophy hasn’t changed in the last 40 years.
No, it’s true that nothing is completely safe, but I recommend StartPage.com
It says it is enhanced by google
“how do you know that”
Katherine Albrecht, a privacy expert has been pushing Startpage for quite some time.
ahhhh you were toled that
“Take a deep breath. You’re safe here.
Click here to learn how Ixquick protects you from government surveillance.”
Actually on their home page-—LOVE it. (hope it’s true.)
“It says it is enhanced by google”
That does not matter. Google sees only the Startpage IP, not yours.
IXQuick, DuckDuckGo, Entireweb
What is primarily important is that you lock encryption on every web page. https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere
And that you make sure your point of contact, like IXQuick is not Backdoored by the NSA. The have server connections to google, yahoo, etc. Encryption doesn’t help when you are connecting to a rootkit’d node.
To ensure safety, you can go a step further with a VPN to swissvpn or another Country with better privacy laws. Then browse, play, whatever you want to to without being recorded.
Https in and of itself will not stop deep packet inspection. It will irritate it and buy time. Not being there via a VPN will make archiving much more difficult.
In short, it’s not just the search engine. It’s the ISP’s. You must have encryption + anonymity. One is good, but both are realistic protection from your NAZI government.
Your ISP is probably supplying them with the info anyway.
I’m normally not a conspiracy theorist - in fact, I hate that sort of thing - but I’ve thought I noticed a distinct bias in the returns I get when I search on controversial political topics. Almost always, all the liberal propaganda comes right to the top.
I also use StartPage and have for quite awhile. Don’t miss google or bing or yahoo. The results from StartPage are nearly the same, with less cruft.
I also use a personel VPN and connect to VPN servers out of the country. ISP doesn’t see anything other than the VPN connection to whichever VPN server I choose to use that day.
Keep safe out there.
Please tell us what a VPN is.
I would tend to believe your assessment. Any search or web page visit will jump from server to server until it gets what it is looking for. Just run a “tracert” on any URL and see the jumps. I did a tracert on www.freerepublic.com and it took 20 hops.

At least one of those servers is likely to be tracking the data. It would not be hard to force all traffic though a server used to track internet activity.
I use Goodsearch.com.
So far I don’t think it’s large enough for the summit honchos to bother with. It’s a great search engine IMHO.
It’s safer just to buy more guns and ammo.
You’re worried about the search engines but you are here?
They monitor this site for sure. That’s why I give them the pleasure of letting them know how I REALLY feel.
F U B O !
Start page says that it is “enhanced by google”.
I've mostly switched from Google to StartPage.
This description is provided on StartPage.com:
Startpage offers you Web search results from Google in complete privacy!
When you search with Startpage, we remove all identifying information from your query and submit it anonymously to Google ourselves. We get the results and return them to you in total privacy.
Free proxy surfing available.
Praised by privacy experts worldwide.
Fourteen-year company track record.
No IP address recorded.
No record is made of your searches.
No identifying or tracking cookies used.
Connection using powerful SSL encryption.
So you would choose this over IcQuick?
Thanks very much for all the excellent input, Freepers. Right now I’m using searchnu.com, just to avoid Google. It’s not the best search engine, actually kinda shoddy, but at least it ain’t Google.
Have a question. How do I add a Facebook Toolbar to my computer?
All of which means squat if you post comments on a conservative web site. Or anywhere for that matter if your post contains the forbidden words.
Everyone here is in the cross hairs already. Be less concerned about search engines and more concerned about what you are going to do when “they” decide to come for you. Be it an IRS audit (financial ruin) or jackboots pounding on your door, they are eventually going to retaliate against all contrary political thought.

I noticed something else; maybe this deserves its own thread, but I don’t know how to set that up:
Jonestown Massacre...a subject of recent interest of mine since it looks like the country is headed in a direction like that.
Search ‘Jonestown massacre’ on youtube to find documentary videos produced by many all over the world.
But...some 90s BS folksinger whatever decided to rename himself ‘Brian Jonestown Massacre’ (no BS that is supposedly the name of this musical group).
So to find info on Jonestown you have to wade through all this crap. What kind of sick fu## would call a band that; without some other motivation.
Have a friend who did some work for them. They store no info so even if they get a subpoena they have nothing to give up.
IxQuick may actually be better, I don't know. Basically I love Google except for its privacy invasions, so StartPage gives me most of what I want.
Nope. Rely on your own intellect and you’ll be fine.
