America’s favorite search engine is in bed with Hillary Clinton. As if it wasn’t bad enough that nearly half the nation has swallowed her lies, now Google has joined the State Department in shocking and unprecedented displays of political favoritism.
“There’s an inherent trust that when you Google something, you are seeing the actual, factual answer to your query or question based at least in part on the results of what other people are searching for,” explains Sourcefed’s Matt Lieberman.
This is not true for searchers related to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
When you begin typing a question or keyword into the Google search bar, several recommendations pop up. These recommendations are supposedly based on what others are searching. Type in “Hillary Clinton cri,” for example, and you will see:
• Hillary Clinton crime reform
• Hillary Clinton crisis
• Hillary Clinton crime bill 1994
Numerous agencies have proved these recommendations do not align with the most popular searches. Type that same phrase into any other search engine and you get suggestions like:
• Hillary Clinton crimes
• Hillary Clinton criminal record
• Hillary Clinton criminal investigation
See a short video and try it yourself if you don’t believe me.
What this means is that America’s most trusted search engine has been quietly manipulating search recommendations to influence the public’s opinion of Hillary Clinton. In other words, Google doesn’t want potential voters asking questions about Hillary’s criminal record or potential indictment (email scandal).
“Google is burying potential searches that could have hurt Hillary Clinton in the primary elections over the past several months by manipulating recommendations on their site,” reports Lieberman. Google’s behavior is not illegal, but such a bias is deeply unethical.
Speaking this week via video link from Moscow, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claims that Google chairman Eric Schmidt, who now serves as head of the Pentagon’s innovation board, “set up a company to run the digital component of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”
“Google is directly engaged with Hillary’s campaign,” he continues. “Of course when she is in power…she is a problem for freedom of speech. We know what she is going to do. And she made the chart for the destruction of Libya, she was involved in the process of taking the Libyan armory and sending it to Syria.”
“Google is heavily integrated with Washington power, at personal levels and at business levels. Google, which has increasing control over the distribution channels…is intensely allying itself with US exceptionalism.”
Google is hiding the truth from Americans as they try to educate themselves in preparation for the general election this fall. This is censorship, folks.
“Google search rankings could potentially decide the outcome of an election,” reported Fortune Magazine last year. “Google controls 80% of the smartphone market through its control of Android and if you control the device itself – that people use to read – then anything that they connect to through that device you have control over as well,” adds Assange.
Google handles nearly 4,000 queries per second. Just imagine what effect such widespread censorship could have on public opinion.
Google’s pathetic response to these accusations is almost laughable: “Autocomplete predictions are produced based on a number of factors including the popularity of search terms. Our systems are periodically updated to improve search, and our users’ search activity varies, so the terms that appear in autocomplete may change over time. Additionally, our systems automatically filter a small set of offensive or inappropriate content from autocomplete predictions.”
GOOGLE is already down -1.26% as of Thursday, and will likely fall further as Americans lose their trust in the nation’s #1 search engine. As we wrote in May, Facebook has also been caught censoring the conservative perspective.
Author’s Note: Censorship should be a bipartisan issue. No matter which candidate you support, we can all agree that search engines and social media sites should not censor results based on political preference. Such actions directly violate the freedoms on which this country was founded, and yet the woman involved time and again in many of these incidents stands poised to take the White House this fall…
