ALERT: Big Tech Could Derail President Trump in the 2020 Elections

Published

Robert Epstein, senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology and former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today, appeared on Glenn Beck’s Wednesday night show on March 4, 2020 to talk about how Big Tech companies can manipulate America’s elections.

And they can pull this off without anyone knowing.

According to Epstein’s research, Google was deliberately changing what people can view on the Internet in order to mold public opinion. Epstein claims that Google’s search algorithm has the power to “shift the voting preferences of undecided voters by 20 percent or more — up to 80 percent in some demographic groups — with virtually no one knowing they are being manipulated.”

Dr. Epstein conducted one experiment where he was able to change a person’s view of a candidate between 37 percent and 63 percent of the time. The catch is that he was able to do so in just one search session, per The Blaze report.

Search engine manipulation is one of many tools in Big Tech’s toolbox to shift voter opinion. Another way Big Tech tries to influence political decision is through search suggestions that pop up as someone is typing in a search or ephemeral experiences.” Epstein contends that there are at least eight more ways that Big Tech can subtly change the way Americans vote.

Epstein informed Beck that he’s been working closely with the White House and is of the opinion that the Trump administration will conduct an investigation into how Big Tech companies may be undermining elections.

Big Tech meddling is one of the most pressing issues of our time. Social media has effectively become a “Fifth Estate” and acts an appendage of the Deep State. Gun rights organizations and other groups promoting gun-related content have already been demonetized on social media outlets such as Facebook and YouTube during the last few years.

Policymakers will need to look into reforming some of the government-granted immunities that these companies receive so that there is a level playing field, and also to keep these companies in check.

Will Josh Hawley be the Next Champion for an America First Foreign Policy?

America First May Have its Next Leader to End Wars Abroad

Does America First have a new non-interventionist champion?

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley has been viewed by many as one of the figures who could potentially lead a Trumpist movement after Trump, should Joe Biden end up being installed as president on January 2021.

Hawley has made a name for himself as a champion of Middle America and questioning the neoliberal orthodoxy on immigration and trade. Lately, Hawley has made a pivot towards  questioning the interventionist conventional wisdom on foreign policy. 

In early October of this year, the Missouri Senator called for the American government to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. Hawley tweeted, “Almost 20 years now in Afghanistan. Long past time to draw this war to an end.”

Hawley’s foreign policy has been a work progress over the past two years. During a 2019 speech Hawley gave at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), he questioned the nation-building policy prescriptions of previous administrations, demonstrating some degree of skepticism towards non-stop interventionism abroad on the part of the Senator.

That said, it remains to be seen if Hawley’s legislative record will fully match his rhetoric.

Hawley is a staunch China hawk, who fears the rise of China and is a strong voice against China’s expansionist efforts. Hawley’s track record shows that his foreign policy views are rough around the edges. Daniel Larison of The American Conservative is not as optimistic about Hawley judging by his votes on the Yemeni Civil War. Larison cited several of Hawley’s votes that may be cause for concern:

Sen. Hawley voted against the Senate’s resolution of disapproval that opposed the president’s effort to circumvent Congress with a bogus “emergency” to expedite arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. More important, he voted with the president and most Senate Republicans against the antiwar Yemen resolution that would have cut off all U.S. support to the Saudi coalition.”

Nevertheless, Hawley’s comments on Afghanistan are a good sign that Hawley is catching on to the fact that Americans are tired of foreign wars. Politicians can change their views and behaviors. Hawley is likely recognizing that the America First movement is exhausted by the endless wars and wants candidates and elected officials who offer withdrawal plans. 

After looking at the list of people who have been tapped to join the Biden administration, Hawley tweeted, “What a group of corporatists and war enthusiasts – and #BigTech sellouts.”

Journalist Glenn Greenwald, a fierce interventionist skeptic, maintained cautious optimism about Hawley. In a tweet, he commented, “All kinds of reasons to be skeptical of the authenticity here, but — purely as a matter of rhetoric — just imagine any national Republican speaking this way about a Dem administration even 10 years ago. The framework of politics is radically shifting.”

The jury is still out on Hawley. Regardless of flaws in his voting record, America First advocates should continue to push him and other America First leaning Republicans in the right direction. We should never forget that politicians are still receptive to political pressure and the grassroots holds the keys to political change. 

Young senators like Hawley are the future of American politics and it makes sense for foreign policy restrainers to lobby them and push them in a direction that favors non-interventionism.
