The Department of Justice has announced a broad antitrust review of big tech giants likely including Facebook, Google parent company Alphabet, and Amazon, in a move suggesting President Donald Trump’s administration is taking the threats posed by social media and big tech companies seriously.
Yesterday evening it was announced that the Department of Justice would be beginning its review of major big tech companies, and though none were specifically named, it is likely they will examine the behavior of big tech platforms that appear to collude to prevent individuals and organizations considered conservative or populist off their platforms, and prevent new competitors from competing.
From the Department of Justice press release:
The Department’s review will consider the widespread concerns that consumers, businesses, and entrepreneurs have expressed about search, social media, and some retail services online. The Department’s Antitrust Division is conferring with and seeking information from the public, including industry participants who have direct insight into competition in online platforms, as well as others.
This comes after Project Veritas exposed how Google is able to influence political elections, including President Trump’s 2020 reelection, and shape narratives by manipulating its search results, as Big League Politics reported. After Project Veritas exposed Google’s election interference, and how the company instructs its employees to protest right wing policies, YouTube, owned by Google, banned the Project Veritas video from its platform.
Earlier today, whistle-blower James O’Keefe of Project Veritas released a bombshell video exposing Google’s manipulation of algorithms in an attempt to prevent Donald Trump from winning re-election in 2020.
That video can no longer be seen on YouTube, which is owned by Google. They are trying to cover-up the exposé after getting caught red handed committing thought control and electoral manipulation.
Jen Gennai, the Google Responsible Innovation Head, was forced to respond to the video earlier today in a post on Medium where she admitted that “Project Veritas got me. Well done.”
Following this, Twitter temporarily suspended Project Veritas from its platform, in what some view as an attempt to protect Google from negative press.
Additionally, as rumors swirl about President Trump joining the new social media platform Parler, Apple threatened the app with removal from its app store if Parler refused to comply with Apple’s internal policies regarding what is considered politically incorrect hate speech.
John Matze, the founder of the pro-free speech social network Parler, revealed on the platform that Apple contacted him to demand he censor “offensive” speech from the website or the big tech platform will remove Parler’s app from its App Store.
Matze revealed on his Parler account that he was threatened with the deletion of his smartphone app if his company does not change its Community Guidelines and immediately begin removing content Apple considers “offensive.” When Matze flatly refused to comply with the tech giant’s demands, Apple prevented the Parler app from sending publisher updates of the app to users.
According to Assistant Attorney General Makan Dalrahim of the Antitrust Division, “Without the discipline of meaningful market-based competition, digital platforms may act in ways that are not responsive to consumer demands.” Dalrahim went on, “The Department’s antitrust review will explore these important issues.”
Big League Politics will track the progress of this investigation and what ramifications it may have for the tech giants.
Google Hits Alternative Social Media Platform Minds with Deplatforming Threat
Minds is under attack.
The alternative social media platform Minds is reporting that Google is threatening to remove their app from their Play Store feature if they do not tailor their app to Google’s restrictive specifications.
Minds founder Bill Ottman made the announcement in a post on his pro-free speech platform.
“Google Play sent Minds a 24 hour warning,” Ottman said. “Our response app was accepted into the store based on our interim solution and ninja developers, but we had to remove major functionality from that version of the app.”
Big Tech is trying to force Minds to play by their rules or choke them out of the marketplace. This is how Silicon Valley uses their government-granted monopoly power to enforce Big Brother.
“What is happening on the internet with major providers is fueling the cultural divide as much as anything,” Ottman stated.
“We had to remove search, discovery and comments. I know. We aren’t happy and we will be working towards something better,” he continued.
“We will be releasing a full report on our plan for fully censorship-resistant infrastructure. For those asking about Amazon, don’t worry, we have multiple escape pods ready to go,” Ottman added.

Big League Politics has reported on how Big Tech is ruthlessly putting down all competition as they proudly manifest the Orwellian nightmare:
The conservative social media platform, Parler, is already on its last legs, as the platform’s developers relied upon Big Tech to provide their infrastructure.
Parler CEO John Matze had claimed that there were a bunch of competitors vying to host the social media site. However, the notion of a free market is laughable with a handful of far-left tech monopolies dominating the world, and he was forced to admit the awful truth in a Fox News interview.
“They all work together to make sure at the same time we would lose access to not only our apps, but they are actually shutting all of our servers off tonight, off the internet,” Matze explained.
“They made an attempt to not only kill the apps, but also destroy the entire company… Every vendor from text message services to email providers to lawyers all ditched us too on the same day,” he added.
Matze said that Parler is pretty much doomed because of the Orwellian super-structure that has been put into place to destroy all potential competition.
“We’re going to try our best, ya know, to get back online as quickly as possible but we’re having a lot of trouble because every vendor we talk to won’t work with us because if Apple doesn’t approve and Google doesn’t approve, they won’t,” he said.
“Amazon is the largest cloud storage vendor in the world, and we use them to host our servers. Hundreds of them. Hundreds of servers. And they gave us basically, they said, you have 24 hours to get all of your data and find new servers. So, where are you going to find 300 to 500 servers in a 24-hour window, and how can you send all of the data from everybody out to them in a 24-hour period? It’s an impossible feat,” Matze explained.
The fix is in. Every aspect of society is rigged against the American people to destroy their rights. Now, what are they going to do about it?
