A Disaster for Democrats by The Elephant's Child

Interesting hearings today. They didn’t go quite as the Democrats had planned. And the consensus seems to be that it was a disaster for them and may have ended their pursuit of impeachment. We’ll see. I don’t expect they will give up easily.

Have you noticed that nobody seems to mention the extent to which President Trump cooperated with the investigation? He gave them everything they asked for, access to staff, his lawyer, papers, answered questions and complied cooperatively with the whole effort, though he did call it a “witch hunt” from time to time.

Lawrence Tribe, Harvard Law School, Lefty, wrote that: “the effort to save democracy and the rule of law from this lawless president  has been set back, not advanced.” That one startled me — “Save Democracy and the Rule of Law?” A little full of ourselves are we?  I continued on browsing, and discovered the same quote at InstaPundit. 422 other people were disturbed enough by Tribe’s statement to want to comment on it, quite a few angrily, some scatologically and many just wanted to tell Mr.Tribe where he could take his opinions.  Funny.



Is Big Tech Going to Control Our Elections? by The Elephant's Child

A very liberal professor warns that Google has manipulated voters,and can manipulate them far more in the 2020 election.

Dr, Robert Epstein explains what happened in the last election and the potential for Google to manipulate votes by manipulating search results. Scary.

When you need to search, use Duck Duck Go. They don’t track you.

Facebook has just been fined $5 billion, which is apparently the maximum the law allows, but is a drop in the proverbial bucket for Facebook which earned many more billions this last year.

Ted Cruz has been holding hearings on the misbehavior of Big Tech, and Congress is hearing plenty from their constituents. The monitoring of the citizenry in China is an alarming example of what is now possible, and what Big Tech knows about us is disturbing as well.

I don’t know that I have ever been aware before of business companies playing politics. not just in their advertising attempts, but actually getting into national politics. Apparently Conservatives are not welcome at Google, as James Damore showed us. And supposedly the rest of that bunch as well. One would think that they would know better, but apparently not. Write your congressperson if you are concerned. Congress does not as yet have a clear understanding of the public attitude nor understanding of what is going on.
