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.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
