  • New Movie Claims Google Handed the Popular Vote to Hillary Clinton in 2016

    When Donald Trump surprised the world by winning the 2016 election, liberals clung to the idea that his victory was illegitimate because Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. According to a psychologist who supported Clinton in 2016, however, Google's bias in Clinton's favor may remove even that symbolic victory from her. Almost all of Clinton's popular vote margin could be attributed to Google bias, making her win "negligible." Dr. Robert Epstein, a psychologist who earned his Ph.D. at Harvard, actually reported this finding last year, but he explains how it works in the upcoming film "The Creepy Line." Epstein made...

  • White House proposes executive order to Trump that would examine tech companies’ practices

    The White House is drafting an executive order to look into the business practices of top tech companies like Google and Facebook, Bloomberg reported Saturday. A copy of the draft order obtained by Bloomberg directs federal antitrust and law enforcement officials to “thoroughly investigate whether any online platform has acted in violation of the antitrust laws.” Other government agencies are then asked to provide recommendations on how to “protect competition among online platforms and address online platform bias.” Bloomberg noted that no companies are explicitly named in the order, but that it would apply to tech giants like Google, Twitter...
  • Report: Google suppressed an explosive memo about its Chinese search engine

    The Intercept is reporting that Google tried -- and apparently, failed -- to suppress a memo that may have revealed how that search engine could have allowed the Chinese government to track those citizens who used it. According to the report, the so-called Dragonfly search engine would require Chinese citizens to log in to perform searches, track their physical location, and then share all of its data with a Chinese partner company that could presumably share it with the Chinese government. The company would reportedly have "unilateral access" to the data. That might also presumably include Chinese citizens' phone numbers,...
  • Google staffers wanted to manipulate search results to combat Trump's travel ban, emails show

    Google is in the spotlight after internal emails show conversations between employees highlighting a desire to manipulate search results on the heels of President Trump’s controversial travel ban in order to mute conservative viewpoints and push ways to combat the ban. Like many Silicon Valley titans, Google has drawn the ire of conservatives who feel right-leaning views are condemned from within. But internal company emails made public by Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Thursday appear to show employees wanted to curate Google's algorithm to boost left-leaning political views on immigration.   The emails were written on Jan. 29, 2017...
  • GOOGLE EMPLOYEES WANTED TO RIG SEARCH RESULTS FOR ‘ISLAM,’ ‘MUSLIM,’ AND ‘IRAN,’

    Not surprising. Google has already rigged search results for certain Islamic searches without being at all subtle about it. But the explosive thing here is that it was a response to a specific government policy. That takes Google out of the realm of rigging results and into anti-government activism. Days after the Trump administration instituted a controversial travel ban in January 2017, Google employees discussed ways they might be able to tweak the company’s search-related functions to show users how to contribute to pro-immigration organizations and contact lawmakers and government agencies, according to internal company emails. The email traffic, reviewed...

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News on Thursday that Google’s “bias is not surprising” in the wake of a video that details their determination to thwart Trump’s populist agenda. Breitbart News obtained an hour-long video featuring Google executives such as co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, as well as CEO Sundar Pichai and many other executives disparaging Trump voters and plotting ways to use their vast resources to thwart Trump’s populist agenda. In the leaked video, Brin compared Trump supporters to fascists and extremists. He then asked his company what Google can do to...

    WASHINGTON—Days after the Trump administration instituted a controversial travel ban in January 2017, Google employees discussed how they could tweak the company’s search-related functions to show users how to contribute to pro-immigration organizations and contact lawmakers and government agencies, according to internal company emails. The email traffic, reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, shows that employees proposed ways to “leverage” search functions and take steps to counter what they considered to be “islamophobic, algorithmically biased results from search terms ‘Islam’, ‘Muslim’, ’Iran’, etc.” and “prejudiced, algorithmically biased search results from search terms `Mexico’, `Hispanic’, `Latino’, etc.”

    Get The DEEP STATE Out of America's National Security The August 20, 2018 resignation of retired Navy admiral William McRaven from a U.S. Defense Department advisory board begs the question why an Eric Schmidt-headed Defense Innovation Board (DIB) is still up and running in the Pentagon. McRaven, who oversaw the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, that some say gave President Barack Obama most of the credit, resigned from the DIB on Aug. 20, four days after he wrote in the Washington Post that President Donald Trump’s actions revoking former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance “embarrassed us in the...

    Google built a prototype of a censored search engine for China that links users’ searches to their personal phone numbers, thus making it easier for the Chinese government to monitor people’s queries, The Intercept can reveal. The search engine, codenamed Dragonfly, was designed for Android devices, and would remove content deemed sensitive by China’s ruling Communist Party regime, such as information about political dissidents, free speech, democracy, human rights, and peaceful protest.

    Facebook and other companies routinely track your online surfing habits to better target ads at you. Two web browsers now want to help you fight back in what's becoming an escalating privacy arms race. New protections in Apple's Safari and Mozilla's Firefox browsers aim to prevent companies from turning "cookie" data files used to store sign-in details and preferences into broader trackers that take note of what you read, watch and research on other sites. (snip) Safari makes these protections automatic in updates coming Tuesday to iPhones and iPads and a week later to Mac computers. Firefox has similar protections...

    Silicon Valley giant Google employs nearly 10,000 foreign workers, importing them to the United States on visas, a newly leaked video obtained by Breitbart News reveals. The video is a full recording of Google’s first all-hands meeting following the 2016 presidential election in which President Trump historically beat out Democrat Hillary Clinton. These Google meetings occur on a weekly basis and are known inside the company as “TGIF” meetings, short for “Thank God It’s Friday.” In the Google meeting, Vice President of People Operations Eileen Naughton reveals the extent to which the tech conglomerate has imported and currently employs close...

    While browsers such as Tor might be associated with dark web criminal activity and hackers, there are a growing number of reasons for the average person to think about using a secure browser. In light of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the average consumer has become more conscious of their privacy and the ways in which their data is being used. A secure browser is one way to avoid your data being collected by companies such as Google and Facebook. Another concern driving people to secure browsers is avoiding hacks. Although the nastiest campaigns are aimed at large businesses, the average...

    Google, owned by the same parent company as YouTube, is arguably the most influential social media company in the world, with a power to affect the public dialogue across the globe in ways unimaginable just a handful of years ago. The question is now being asked: Is Google flexing its muscles to do just that? Conservatives have pointed to mounting evidence that Google is waging war on them. They’ll cite everything from YouTube banishing conservatives for espousing their beliefs, to Google partnering with left-wing organizations to disparage conservative thought itself. All along, Google has issued bizarre, barely understandable statements denying...

    Bad news for Google and other internet advertisers: Brave is pushing to make farming user data a whole lot harder. Founder Brandon Eich wants to bring the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to the doorstep of some of the most powerful companies in the world. “There is a massive and systematic data breach at the heart of the behavioral advertising industry. Despite the two-year lead-in period before the GDPR, adtech companies have failed to comply,” Brave’s chief policy officer Johnny Ryan told Reuters. Eich and Brave are calling out the way that personal data is harvested by various websites...

They can steal the election and no one would know it. GOOGLE DENIED IT Google denied it but they took...
