Democrats Want Control, But What Do They Mean By Control? by The Elephant's Child

google_2015_logo_detailFrom the Washington Free Beacon, Sept. 13, 2018:

Former Google research scientist Jack Poulson has resigned from the company over its decision to move forward with a censored search engine approved by the Chinese government for use in the country.

Poulson quit after he raised concerns with his supervisors about Google’s secret project to release a censored search app in China, ultimately determining the company was willing to “capitulate” to China, the Intercept reported.  …

“I view our intent to capitulate to censorship and surveillance demands in exchange for access to the Chinese market as a forfeiture of our values and governmental negotiating position across the globe,” he wrote. “There is an all-too-real possibility that other nations will attempt to leverage our actions in China in order to demand our compliance with their security demands.”

Poulson said around five people have resigned for the same reason. When the project, codenamed Dragonfly, was reported in the press, he was one of many both inside and outside the company demanding answers from the tech giant. Not only did they fail to answer him, Google executives even refused to show up to a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing and answer questions about their activity in China.

From ABC.net.au: “Leave no dark corner” China is building a digital dictatorship to exert control over it’s 1.4 billion citizens. For some, “social credit” will bring privileges—for others, punishment.

Do read the whole thing, particularly the last piece just above. Note the facial recognition. Democrats here at home want control. Just what do they mean by control?

What is it that George Soros wants, that he is so ready to plow in big money to influence? Nancy Pelosi has already been somewhat clear in declaring that they will immediately end the tax cuts that have created such a booming economy, because they only(in spite of vast evidence to the contrary), went to the very rich. But it is also rumored that Democrats are determined to get rid of Pelosi as a potential Speaker, once again.

We were taken aback at the crazy Democratic reaction to the election of President Trump – calling it Trump Derangement Syndrome – almost as if it was all a big joke. It isn’t. Someone, and I forget who, explained that the Democrats were terrified when the Tea Party movement broke out. Republicans weren’t supposed to protest, be activists, Democrats depended on their polite objections, not actual confrontation. We might keep that in mind.
