Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, 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.
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.Jen Gennai

How Google plan to prevent another “Trump situation” in 2020
Project Veritas has released a new report on Google which includes:
- Undercover video of a Senior Google Executive.
- Leaked documents.
- Testimony from a Google insider.
The report appears to show Google’s plans to affect the outcome of the 2020 elections and “prevent” the next “Trump situation.”
The above video has been removed from YouTube at Google’s request (Google owns YouTube). Project Veritas is fighting back.
Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act
Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, protects internet platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Google from liability for statements and content its users generate. When fighting for that protection, social platforms argued that, because of the volume of material being posted by users of their services, it’s impossible to control what lands on their servers.
The question is. Should Google, Facebook, and other social media companies enjoy immunity deserved by unbiased internet platforms, or should they, due to all the hard work they perform in censoring conservatives, be treated as publishers and be held responsible for the content published by their users?
It is more and more evident that all those social giants possess technology that, to a large degree, let them control what does or doesn’t show on their platforms. Unfortunately, instead of using that technology to help people in expressing and widening their views, social media barons use it to prevent people from expressing opinions, not in line with those the owners of these services want to promote.
Thought control practiced by Google and others doesn’t sit well with some politicians. Particularly with the congressman from Texas – Louie Gohmert.
Rep. Gohmert issued a statement regarding Project Veritas report.
This video shows Google’s biases are now a threat to a free and fair election, all while they hide behind the immunity given by Congress years ago when they were supposed to be a simple ‘town square’ where everyone’s voice could be heard without biased results. In fact, Google references a significant role they see themselves fulfilling in the 2020 elections. This discovery should set off alarm bells throughout the country.Congressman Louie Gohmert
It is no secret that Google has a political agenda. Multiple brave tech insiders have stepped forward and exposed Google’s censorship of content and specialized algorithms. This media giant’s ‘social justice narrative’ should distress all Americans who value a free and open society. Google should not be deciding whether content is important or trivial and they most assuredly should not be meddling in our election process.
They need their immunity stripped and to be properly pursued by class action lawsuits by those they have knowingly harmed.
Why stockholders don’t complain?
Alphabet – Google parent company is an enormous enterprise. Although run by progressive liberals, not all stockholders are liberal. Many stockholders would like to see the company operated without mixing into politics, but because most of Class B shares, valued at 10 votes each, are owned by company founders giving them over 51 percent of shareholder voting power, what they want, goes.
There are 50 million B shares, approximately 45 million of which are owned by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. That means the two founders control 450 million votes, while the publicly traded shares plus the remaining B shares account for 342 million votes.
It’s going to be interesting to see if Messrs. Page and Brin will cool down attempts to use their Google empire to prevent Donald Trump from being re-elected as US President. I have a feeling that they will do the right thing for the company shareholders, and put their ambitions of running the world, on hold. Otherwise, they will position themselves in the government’s cross-hair, and that is never a good thing.
