Let’s flash back real quick to this August 19th of 2015 story over at Politico titled “How Google Could Rig The 2016 Election“ within which they reported that google had the ability to drive millions of votes to a candidate with ‘no one the wiser‘. Keep in mind with everything that we’re now watching unfolding in America as we head towards 2020 that this was written back in 2015.:
America’s next president could be eased into office not just by TV ads or speeches, but by Google’s secret decisions, and no one—except for me and perhaps a few other obscure researchers—would know how this was accomplished.
Research I have been directing in recent years suggests that Google, Inc., has amassed far more power to control elections—indeed, to control a wide variety of opinions and beliefs—than any company in history has ever had. Google’s search algorithm can easily shift the voting preferences of undecided voters by 20 percent or more—up to 80 percent in some demographic groups—with virtually no one knowing they are being manipulated, according to experiments I conducted recently with Ronald E. Robertson .
Given that many elections are won by small margins, this gives Google the power, right now, to flip upwards of 25 percent of the national elections worldwide. In the United States, half of our presidential elections have been won by margins under 7.6 percent, and the 2012 election was won by a margin of only 3.9 percent—well within Google’s control.
There are at least three very real scenarios whereby Google—perhaps even without its leaders’ knowledge—could shape or even decide the election next year. Whether or not Google executives see it this way, the employees who constantly adjust the search giant’s algorithms are manipulating people every minute of every day. The adjustments they make increasingly influence our thinking—including, it turns out, our voting preferences.
Flash forward back to June of 2019, we get this new story from Zero Hedge which absolutely confirms that 2015 Politico story via a new Project Veritas video (that is already being censored!). And as we’ll take a look at within this ANP story, nothing less than ‘America‘ is on the line and should google have their way, never again will the US have another ‘nationalist’ President like Donald Trump. Think about that. And as The Liberty Daily pointed out in this perfect headline linking to this Breitbart story, “Seriously? How Does Google Attempt to Prove They Don’t Censor & Meddle in Elections? By Censoring the Video Proving they Censor and Meddle in Elections!!!“ Seriously!!!
And think about what that REALLY means! All TYRANTS attempt to censor the truth. We’ve seen it from the mainstream media, the Democratic party and the US government under Obama/Bush/Clinton for DECADES! This is truly freedom’s last stand. If President Trump doesn’t take down ‘big tech‘, ‘big tech‘ will be sure to take down President Trump, allowing the globalists, who won’t even admit to ‘neutering‘ America for their global agenda, to complete their demolition of America.
Let’s first take a quick look at this new Zero Hedge story within which they report upon the new Project Veritas video that google and youtube are already censoring. As ZH reports, this new video totally exposes google for their political bias and agenda that they claim they don’t have, meanwhile pushing their billions of users around the world towards particular stories they choose via their searchengine manipulations that we’ll look at more deeply in the next section below.
And as we’ll see in the excerpt below, not only do we get more proof that google is very upset about the 2016 election results, but through the mouth of one of their head employees we see that they’ll do anything and everything in their power to make sure such results don’t happen again. Talk about manipulating the elections! Russia has nothing on google.
A new undercover exposé by Project Veritas reveals that the company is programming its machine learning algorithms in order to avoid the “next Trump situation.”
“We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’re rapidly been like, what happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again,” said longtime Google employee and head of “Responsible Innovation,” Jen Gennai.
“We’re also training our algorithms, like, if 2016 happened again, would we have, would the outcome be different?” she added.
Gennai says that Elizabeth Warren’s proposal to break up Google is ‘very misguided,’ because “all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”
Meanwhile, a Google insider who came forward to Veritas confirmed what they filmed Gennai admitting; that the company is using “Machine Learning Fairness” as just one of several political tools used to promote their political agenda by combating “algorithmic unfairness.”
Of course, as Gennai puts it: “We have gotten accusations of around fairness is that we’re unfair to conservatives because we’re choosing what we find as credible news sources and those sources don’t necessarily overlap with conservative sources …”
And while google/youtube/twitter/instagram will claim that they don’t censor Conservatives, claiming they only crack down upon ‘hate‘, the ‘Conservative body count‘ continues to pile up, with Missouri Senator’s Josh Hawley’s new proposed Congressional bill that would crack down upon big tech censorship hopefully not coming too late.
The 2015 Politico story then went on to describe how google has that ability to sway elections using what they then called the ‘searchengine manipulation effect‘, something that we’ve all seen ever since then. With the author showing how google’s tech could be used to sway voters back in 2015, just think about what more they’ve accomplished since then with their stated all out goal being to stop another ‘President Trump‘. If google has their way in 2020, America is done. From Politico.:
What we call in our research the Search Engine Manipulation Effect (SEME) turns out to be one of the largest behavioraleffects ever discovered. Our comprehensive new study, just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), includes the results of five experiments we conducted with more than 4,500 participants in two countries. Because SEME is virtually invisible as a form of social influence, because the effect is so large and because there are currently no specific regulations anywhere in the world that would prevent Google from using and abusing this technique, we believe SEME is a serious threat to the democratic system of government.
Our new research leaves little doubt about whether Google has the ability to control voters. In laboratory and online experiments conducted in the United States, we were able to boost the proportion of people who favored any candidate by between 37 and 63 percent after just one search session. The impact of viewing biased rankings repeatedly over a period of weeks or months would undoubtedly be larger.
In our basic experiment, participants were randomly assigned to one of three groups in which search rankings favored either Candidate A, Candidate B or neither candidate. Participants were given brief descriptions of each candidate and then asked how much they liked and trusted each candidate and whom they would vote for. Then they were allowed up to 15 minutes to conduct online research on the candidates using a Google-like search engine we created called Kadoodle.
