Pro-Doug Jones Ad Removed By Google ‘at the Request of the Alabama Secretary of State’s Office’
Breitbart ^ | 12/7/17 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 12/07/2017 6:08:48 AM PST by x1stcav

Late Wednesday, the Alabama Secretary of State’s office issued a statement claiming what it described as a “misleading” ad from the Birmingham-based pro-Doug Jones super PAC Highway 31 was removed by Google at its behest.

According to the release, the office headed by John Merrill required “several intense discussions,” but resulted in Google removing the ad.

“Secretary Merrill’s team contacted the Media and Advertising team at Google (YouTube’s parent company) and through several intense discussions and many references to Alabama State Law the team at Google felt the ad should be “disapproved” and that it was in violation of the AdWords advertising policies.”

If that standard was applied to the TV media, 75% of Jokes’ ads would go away.

Google did the right thing?

Broken clock?

I sadly admit that I use them a lot.

Protesting Target and Walmart (selling BLM online and now ANTIFA) and NFL (admit to watching Jets last week) and budweiser for gay marriage commercials on NFL last year..etc.

Getting TIRED of having narrower and narrower outlets.

At some point, a little common sense has to be used.

Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, etc.

Thanks for the link. I watched more of it than I wanted to of the three minutes twenty-some seconds. Perhaps I can regain some of the IQ points I lost by lunchtime. The House and Senate need to have sort of of means and abilities testing procedures before any more sub-humans like this are seated.

That is the future of the South. Too many whites can’t be bothered with raising children. Too many others can’t stop.

When will Breitbart smarten up and get rid of the bombardment of advertisements that makes their site unnavigable? I literally could not get to this story because of ads popping up on my phone.

Pulling the ad is a good first step, but somebody needs to be charged with voter intimidation. You’re not suppose to be allowed to threaten voters.

Apparently that’s the business/income model that enables them to deliver this sort of alternative news coverage to us.

While I too find the ads annoying, I won’t complain too much considering the good they’re doing.

On my PC Breitbart the one popup, the one asking me to subscribe. I x that and the rest is clear. I don’t have a “phone” and, observing everyone around me, I conclude that my days are a lot less hectic thereby. And, when I am out of touch- I am out of touch and do not have to listen to the recrimminations of callers complaining that I don’t answer my phone.

On the news last night out of Memphis mentally troubled 17, picked up by PD, for soliciting, turned loose, mother has done EVERYTHING to get her help, she is dying of stage 4 Breast Cancer, girl soon turns 18, and will have nowhere but the streets and Pimps to go to. Instead of a mental institution where she belongs. Mom has stacks of legal paper asking for help, being denied.

calling someone a child-predator based on unproven, suspicious, 40 year old allegations should be criminal.

Moore should sue every one of these women AND every news outlet that called him a child-predator, when this is all over.

I assume that after Franken resigns, Judge Moore will be repeatedly asked through the election if he will resign even if elected.

Attn: Attorney General of the United States, the honorable Jeff Sessions.

18 U.S. Code § 594 - Intimidation of voters

“Whoever intimidates, threatens, coerces, or attempts to intimidate, threaten, or coerce, any other person for the purpose of interfering with the right of such other person to vote or to vote as he may choose, or of causing such other person to vote for, or not to vote for, any candidate for the office of President, Vice President, Presidential elector, Member of the Senate, Member of the House of Representatives, Delegate from the District of Columbia, or Resident Commissioner, at any election held solely or in part for the purpose of electing such candidate, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”

In addition, based on the information that PAC Highway 31 has engaged in a violation of 18 U.S. Code § 594, the Internal Revenue Service should be notified of this violation, so that this PAC may have its status suspended and lose anonymity of its executives and donors.

I totally agree.
Should have been included in the original Constitution.
Founding Fathers' political malpractice by omission...

Of course, at the time, no normal, rational, educated, ethical citizen could imagine that as a problem.

The poor quality of recent Supreme Court members have just compounded the problem.

Hard to imagine three members of a 9-member Supreme Court being perverts themselves.
