Google Staffer Says Company Has Ability to Censor ‘Right-Wing’ Parties

Project Veritas, an undercover journalism nonprofit, recorded a Google staffer speaking about the ability of the big tech giant to boost or censor political views. Adriano Amaduzzi, a technical account manager at Google Marketing, was recorded saying that Google can “offer free credits, free advertising credits to Democratic parties to advertise” and “can censor out news” from its search engine to suppress views it doesn’t want. “I don’t know how much you do that,” he added, presumably referring to Google. Responding to a follow-up question, Amaduzzi acknowledged that Google’s Trust and Safety team can make decisions surrounding the matter. He did not know that he was speaking to Project Veritas, which released hidden camera recordings of his comments late Tuesday. In another segment, Amaduzzi can be heard saying that nearly “80 percent of videos uploaded have been blocked in total that contain hate speech.” He later said that hate speech gets reviewed by people working in Google’s Trust and Safety team, and that it has the potential to get involved in the 2020 election by “stopping right-wing parties from advertising” and “reducing the exposure of their ads.” He did not dispute an off-camera comment that “the majority of Trust and Safety is extremely left.” The founder and CEO of Project Veritas James O’Keefe said in a statement that Amaduzzi’s comments are consistent with other investigations by the organization into how social media giants manipulate speech and content. “Recently we’ve seen censorship of free thought and stories from the big tech giants. Many believe this kind of editorial suppression will affect the upcoming election,” O’Keefe said. “But it seems the biggest tech giant of them all—Google—may have other ways to impact the election—this time coming from their ad sales division overseas.” James O’Keefe, founder and president of the non-profit Project Veritas, in New York on Oct. 31, 2017. (Benjamin Chasteen/The Epoch Times) Project Veritas also recorded Amaduzzi saying that he had ignored a request by someone from the Conservative Party in the UK for advertising to promote Brexit. “Funnily enough about Brexit, I had a guy LinkedIn me—I don’t know why—contacting me, saying, ‘Hi I’m the head of digital infrastructure of the Conservative Party of the United Kingdom. We would like to do advertising with Google. Could you help me with that?'” he said. “I was like, I didn’t answer. You’re telling an Italian that lives in London that you want to advertise Brexit,” he added. “It’s like, seriously … promoting the blocking the free movement of European people. And you’re asking a European guy to help you do that … I didn’t help him.” The latest report followed an earlier piece the investigative group released on Monday, in which Google Cloud Technical Program Manager Ritesh Lakhkar was recorded alleging that Google search is “skewed by the owners and the drivers of the algorithm,” and that the company is allegedly “playing selective God” over information Americans receive. Google did not immediately respond to The Epoch Times’s request for comment. Read More Trump Administration, 11 States, Launch Antitrust Lawsuit Against Search Behemoth Google The news come amid an antitrust lawsuit (pdf) filed on Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Justice and 11 states against Google. The suit accuses Google of anticompetitive and exclusionary practices that make it an unlawful monopoly in both search and advertising. Google reacted to the suit, calling it “deeply flawed.” “People use Google because they choose to, not because they’re forced to, or because they can’t find alternatives,” Kent Walker, senior vice president of global affairs for the company, said in a statement. “Our engineers work to offer the best search engine possible, constantly improving and fine-tuning it. We think that’s why a wide cross-section of Americans value and often love our free products.” “This lawsuit would do nothing to help consumers. To the contrary, it would artificially prop up lower-quality search alternatives, raise phone prices, and make it harder for people to get the search services they want to use,” he added. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), a high-profile Silicon Valley critic, described the legal action as “the most important antitrust case in a generation.” “Google and its fellow big tech monopolists exercise unprecedented power over the lives of ordinary Americans, controlling everything from the news we read to the security of our most personal information,” Hawley said in a statement. Matthew Vadum contributed to this report.

DoD ADMITS Directed Energy Weapons Are IN USE, Alludes To WAR

The Department of Defense has admitted that directed energy weapons are in use.  Defense Secretary Dr. Mark T. Esper said at the Air Force Association’s Virtual Air, Space & Cyber Conference that America’s air, space, and cyber warriors “will be at the forefront of tomorrow’s high-end fight.” Tomorrow’s high-end fight? Is there a war coming we don’t know about? But that’s not the only thing he admitted. The Pentagon is going to ramp up their efforts to use whatever means necessary as weapons, using the largest defense budget in history to do it. The military stood up U.S. Space Command a year ago, and Congress created the U.S. Space Force. The command is charged with operations and the USSF looks to man, train and equip the force. The new service has already submitted a budget and has released its first doctrine — Spacepower. -Defense.gov He also blames the use of directed energy weapons (DEWs) on Russia and China. Esper says China and Russia have placed weapons on satellites and are developing directed energy weapons to exploit U.S. systems “and chip away at our military advantage,” he said.  “In this era of great power competition, we cannot take for granted the United States’ long-held advantages,” Esper said. The last time an enemy force dropped a bomb on American troops was in the Korean War, according to Defense.gov. “China and Russia, seek to erode our longstanding dominance in airpower through long-range fires, anti-access/area-denial systems, and other asymmetric capabilities designed to counter our strengths,” he said. “Meanwhile, in space, Moscow and Beijing have turned a once peaceful arena into a warfighting domain.” A directed-energy weapon was caught on a live stream a few days ago starting and even making worse those fires worse. After being caught on a United States live website, the energy beam was censored. Why would the U.S. censor that if Russia or China had been guilty? Are Directed Energy Weapons Starting Fires In California and Oregon!? Take the time to listen to Esper if you can.  He’s basically outlining a future dystopia filled with war and death on a massive scale using whatever technology they want no matter how “unconventional.” These are interesting times, folks. Pay attention and stay alert. This could be some kind of a psyop disused as an announcement, or it could be something much worse. It’s hard to say right now, but this video is an admission by the U.S. government that this kind of technology exists. President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve! He wants zero rates and QE4! You must prepare for the financial reset We are running out of time Download the Ultimate Reset Guide Now!
