an article by Dr. Joseph Mercola
(our site's article review)
Zach Vorhies says “I gave the documents to Project Veritas, I had been collecting the documents for over a year. And the reason why I collected these documents was because I saw something dark and nefarious going on with the company and I realized that they were going to not only tamper with the elections, but use that tampering with the elections to essentially overthrow the United States. . . . Vorhies received a letter from Google containing several 'demands.' Vorhies told Project Veritas that he complied with Google’s demands, which included a request for any internal Google documents he may have personally retained. Vorhies also said he sent those documents to the Department of Justice Antitrust Division."
From 1765 to 1783, the Colonists successfully overthrew British rule; now, in 2019, high-tech oligarchs and leftist extremists are tampering with Google searches to slant elections so only politically correct liberals can win elections, essentially overthrowing United States' democracy and submitting citizens to Google's rule
Vorhies draws "parallels between the ironically named Google Machine Learning Fairness program and a number of classic books warning about how a totalitarian regime can take over by seizing control of what constitutes 'political correctness' and indeed the overall narrative of 'reality' itself." says Dr. Joseph Mercola.
Partial transcript of the video interview with James O’Keefe for Project Veritas about when Google sicced the cops on Vorhies for copying and distributing their confidential documents: "(At about [.30], we see Vorhies forced to do a perp walk outside his home. This seems to be the “wellness check” referenced earlier.)
Zachary Vorhies: The police didn’t announce themselves. I decided that I’m just not going to talk to them.
Google sicced the cops on Vorhies for copying and distributing their confidential documents
Project Veritas: So… why are the police outside your home in San Francisco?
Zachary Vorhies: So, what I did was, I put out a Dead Man’s Switch [a backup plan in case of disappearance, or death.].
People act like you’re brave and it’s like, when I am coming and explaining what Google is doing, this is an act of atonement, okay, to make my conscience clear. They are not an objective place. They are not an objective source of information. They are a highly biased political machine that is bent on not ever letting somebody like Donald Trump come to power again.

Google sicced the cops on Zachary Vorhies for copying and distributing their confidential documents, but he was doing a vital civic duty like Edward Snowden did, so he is a hero
“I felt that our entire election system was going to be compromised forever, by this company that told the American public that it was not going to do any evil.”—Zachary Vorhies
"Greg Coppola, the senior Google engineer who spoke to Project Veritas in an on-the-record interview about alleged bias in Google News and Google Search, has been placed on administrative leave,” Project Veritas reported Thursday in an update on the Coppola interview. . . . “I think for a while we had tech that was politically neutral,” he said. “Now we have tech that really, first of all is taking sides in a political contest, which I think, you know, anytime you have big corporate power merging with political parties can be dangerous.” . . . Newsbusters reports that if Coppola is indeed fired, as he expects to be, “he will be the third public victim of Google’s inherent bias toward conservative engineers.” (Source: Google Takes Action Against Whistleblower Who Called Out Political Bias, James Barrett, DailyWire.com)
Google's new 'progressivism' seems to be based on egregious political influence sufficient to ramp up their power to tyrannical levels
"Our friend James O’Keefe and his team at Project Veritas have produced another bombshell Silicon Valley expose, this time with the help of Google whistleblower Zachary Vorhies. The documents Mr. Vorhies released included a document with a Google Now blacklist and Google block list, and hundreds of other pages of material from internal Google memos, emails, and guidelines. This allegedly impacted the app and not all Google searches.
That blocklist included NewsBusters, Twitchy, Conservative Tribune, Front Page Mag, RedState, Christian Post, Daily Caller, MRCTV, and Catholic News Agency, among other sites that might support President Donald Trump or his policies
"Ms. Weaver reports the list of sites with a high block rate included other places, such as the sites belonging to noted right or right-leaning voices such as Glenn Beck, LTC Allen B. West, USA, (also a senior fellow at MRC), Steven Crowder, the Duggar Family blog, Megyn Kelly, Rush Limbaugh, and Michelle Malkin. In other words, sites that might offend the progressive sensibilities of millennial snowflakes, but are well within the mainstream of American culture, and might support Trump or his policies in the upcoming election. As Ms. Weaver reported, Google has created blacklists and blocklists before, for its sister site YouTube."

Zachary Vorhies is a brave Google whistleblower who did his civic duty, like Snowden, and exposed the blacklists, political bias, and the fact that Google lied to Congress; Zach is a hero
"Zack Vorhies was a Google Insider who leaked a 'treasure trove' of documents to Project Veritas that proved Google lied to Congress. They are not an 'unbiased, apolitical company,' they are ravenously anti-Conservative and do not want Donald Trump to win the election again. Though they blatantly told Congress that a 'blacklist' doesn’t exist, Google lied. They have a blacklist, and Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children is on it. . . . Censorship is the purview of Communism. Manipulating the electorate by not allowing them to see what they choose to see is an affront to the Constitution. Google might as well be state-run media in totalitarian countries. Will any of the current investigations into Big Tech do anything when companies like Google lied to the face of Congress?"

A Google whistleblower, Zack Vorhies, has gone public with evidence pointing toward the election manipulation and political bias driving Google’s agenda. If we were Google, we'd realize the huge incentive they are giving to rich rightwingers like the Kochs to brand Google "the leftist search engine," after which they invest billions of dollars in building an agenda-free search engine that gets objective results. Huge numbers of rightwing advertisers would abandon Google since conservative websites were being filtered out of SERP results, but no such filtering would happen with AgendaFree (suggested name). Google has a big ego and would not act to dump their biases until it was too late, since their corporate buddies would all be acting as yes men. By the time they realized what was happening and what they did wrong (trying to influence elections and the public mind), AgendaFree would have stolen half its user base and half its advertisers as a side issue of U.S.'s extreme polarization.

This competition and the birth of an agendaless search engine would be wonderful for democracy and for the righttwing sites that are currently being filtered out of results! Google lying to Congress will finally get the consequences they deserve, and hopefully the liars would be prosecuted. Tampering with the elections to essentially overthrow the United States by tricking the public with crooked searches and swaying public sentiment their way is a cheap and dirty way for greedy Google to unfairly exploit their position as the main search engine to gain more power and influence so they can aid the leftist radicals in their dirty plan to force political correctness down the unwilling throats of all our citizens.
"After multiple sources corroborated the longstanding accusation that Google stealthily infuses its political preferences into its products, the company has continued to claim neutrality, leading to incongruous answers by its executives to lawmakers’ questioning. A June 24 exposé by Project Veritas showed several Google employees and a cache of internal documents describing methods Google has used to tweak its products to surreptitiously push its users toward a certain worldview. One employee even appeared to say, when caught on hidden camera, that Google’s goal was preventing President Donald Trump, or anybody like him, from being elected again—an assertion confirmed by another employee who spoke under the condition of anonymity."

Google’s goal, in their own words, was preventing President Donald Trump, or anybody like him, from being elected again—an assertion confirmed by another employee who spoke under the condition of anonymity—Google’s joined the Trump-hate train

Google is manipulating public opinion and the political landscape. The documents Google whistleblower Zach Vorhies exposed clearly reveal Google is far from a neutral platform for information. It has a very clear political agenda, and is using its platform to shape the public view by selectively promoting some content and demoting others
Google, we beg you to reconsider your current misguided course of being the internet's censor making sure that nothing of substance shows up in search results
The non-mainstream reporters in alternative journalism are not afraid of the truth even if it ruffles a few feathers
Searchers want real search, not foolish censorship from misguided leftist amateurs! See Google Is the World's Biggest Censor and Its Power Must Be Regulated.

Beginning in the 1980s, right-wing Republicans and Democratic comparatists switched sides, and ever since they've increasingly allowed corporate lobbyists and campaign donors to disempower America's workaday majority, further enrich themselves and impose an abominable, un-American culture of inequality across our land." I.e., the greedy corporatocracy robbed the middle class and pocketed the loot. (Source: What Is Killing the Middle Class in the US?, Jim Hightower, Buzzflash)
The greedy corporatocracy robbed the middle class and pocketed the loot
The gap between rich and poor widens more every day
The U.S. oligarchy is slowly degenerating toward Russian oligarchical standards, where the rich are the relevant individuals and the nonrich are mere cash cows, working to enrich the greedy rich. Wu says we are CITIZENS, not merely consumers. And, large corporations should not be permitted to become more powerful than government (e.g., regulatory capture, and market domination). Mega-corporations control the media, therefore you don't hear about the loss of good jobs, the loss of innovation, the corruption of the patent process, and all the barriers to competition that hide below the radar.

In a recent article, Henein, perhaps best known for directing the documentary film, "The Vanishing of the Bees," writes:
"Google has become the digital Thought Police for health content, tampering and manipulating information, and shadow banning health professionals and independent journalists."
39-year-old Zach Vorhies, who served as Senior Software Engineer at Google/YouTube for 8.5 years, is Google's Snowden. "He's a hero in my book," says Mercola. And if you use Google, YouTube, Gmail, etc you are being impacted. Vorhies turned whistleblower, releasing a cache of internal documents illustrating that Google is NOT a reliable source of information."
The 2019 PC-obsessed Thought Police seek any thoughts or ideas that are not in the accepted liberal narrative so they can hit the offenders with character assassination, demonization, and dehumanizing tactics and silence them
Edward Snowden, U.S. hero
As noted by Maryam Henein, director of The Vanishing of the Bees, "Google has become a digital thought police" — just as described in chilling detail in George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984. "Part of technofascism is to confuse people so their sense of memory is altered," Henein says. "They don't know what is real and what is not real. We're now living in confusing times with fake news and alternative facts, and that is all part of it." Vorhies agrees, saying the ultimate plan is to make you doubt your own memory and thus teach you to turn to the established authorities to learn "the facts," which will be whatever is considered best in the moment. As Orwell wrote in 1984, "The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became truth." That, in a nutshell, is exactly what Google is doing right at this moment.
The PC Police ensure that everything we see and hear conforms to their bigoted standards, and Google is moving farther that way daily

"In this examination of the multiplying attacks on freedom of speech [The Silencing: How the Left is Killing Free Speech], Kirsten Powers casts a cool eye on the damages done to politics, academia, and civic discourse by the aggressive assertion of a perverse new entitlement. It is the postulated right to pass through life without being disturbed, annoyed, offended, or discomposed by the expression of anyone else's thoughts."—George F. Will, Pulitzer Prize–winning syndicated columnist and author of the New York Times bestseller A Nice Little Place on the North Side.
"So, who's behind this rise of 'technofascism'? Henein suspects Big Pharma has a hand in it, considering the fact that drug advertising is a major profit center for Google, and the fact that alternative and holistic news sites have been actively shadow banned, to where you can no longer find them in Google's search results. Indeed, the traffic to my own site [mercola.com] from Google has dropped by 99.9% since its June 3, 2019, broad core update, says Mercola."
This century, Big Pharma has been jacking up its prices in a manner that is unethical, shocking to the conscience, and indefensible—let's begin trust-busting!
The ultimate irony is that Google has allowed its evaluators to exercise their own biases when assessing the truth, accuracy and validity of these websites, and in doing so, are censoring essential information inconvenient to the narrative of the Washington establishment or simply politically incorrect. Google is deciding what is an acceptable story, and what is unacceptable, whose views and voices are to be preferenced, and whose are to be silenced. There is no transparency and accountability.
in the past year, Google has started censoring the news under the guise of eliminating fake news. They have thousands of monitors, people who were hired to dump anything they see as fake news or conspiracy theory. And yet anyone with a pulse realizes that we live in a polarized society wherein half the people lean right and half lean left, and Google's people are drawn from this pool of polarized citizens. Since Google censors are polarized, if they were allowed to mark for death all things they felt are fake, eventually all political opinions on the internet would disappear.

Studies have shown that U.S. citizens are terrible at recognizing fake news when they see it. Since 80% of people cannot tell real from fake, this means most of the work of Google censors will have been destructive, reflecting on the politics and beliefs of the censor, not on the realness of the content, so thousands of legitimate content pages will have gotten the ax for no reason except the fact that Google is so naive that they actually thought fake content could reliably be detected by censors even though studies have proven just the opposite.

Google is supposed to be an objective search engine that is not politically motivated, but now they are admitting the company is trying to prevent 'the next Trump situation'
On June 2019, Project Veritas published an undercover video recording in which Jen Gennai, Google's head of responsible innovation, admits the company is trying to prevent "the next Trump situation." This is not how citizens act in a democracy. We want free and fair elections, not elections rigged by giant corporations trying to play God. Google needs to be stopped from being fascists, tyrants, demagogues, and just plain bad citizens. Do they have so little faith in our citizens that they feel they have to stack the deck, put their finger on the scale, and deal from the bottom of the deck in order for the will of the people to be actualized? Our fear is that they are only interested in the will of the Google.
Here, leviathan Google threatens Mr. U.S. Democracy, Freedom, Freedom of Speech, reminding us of the joke Where can a 900 pound gorilla sit? Anywhere it wants! And we thought Russia hacked the 2016 election—Google's 2020 plans will put Russian efforts to shame
"So using a company's dominance on the internet to sway the outcome of an election. That's their plan. There should be a term for what Gennai is describing. It turns out there is a term, it's a term you've heard constantly from talking heads on television for more than two years. It's called hacking an election. Google wants to hack our election."
