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.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
