Justice Department Files Antitrust Lawsuit Against Google

Published

on

On Tuesday morning the Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit against Alphabet Inc.’s Google, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The lawsuit accuses Google of engaging in monopolistic, anticompetitive practices to tighten their stranglehold on the search and search advertising market.

In the words of the WSJ report, the company is “maintaining its status as gatekeeper to the internet through an unlawful web of exclusionary and interlocking business agreements that shut out competitors.” Google also allegedly uses billions of dollars in ad revenue to pay smartphone manufacturers, carriers, and browsers, so that they “maintain Google as their preset, default search engine.”

Many have been eagerly awaiting this move for some time. Big League Politics published an article five months ago on the Justice Department’s intention to file an antitrust suit against the tech giant:

Despite the Wuhan virus pandemic making work complicated for the Justice Department, Attorney General William Barr has allocated significant resources into the Google investigation and continues to place it as a top priority. Barr told The Wall Street Journal in March that he wanted the Justice Department to make a final decision this summer. “I’m hoping that we bring it to fruition early summer,” Barr said during the time. “And by fruition I mean, decision time.”

Paxton said the pandemic was not preventing his office from pursuing further action. “We’ve issued [civil subpoenas] to Google and impacted third parties. We hope to have the investigation wrapped up by fall,” Paxton declared in a statement. “If we determine that filing is merited we will go to court soon after that.”

Google responded to the lawsuit saying, “Today’s lawsuit by the Department of Justice is deeply flawed. People use Google because they choose to—not because they’re forced to or because they can’t find alternatives. We will have a fuller statement this morning.”

It’s about time we see one of these Big Tech behemoths get challenged in court. Hopefully this represents a first step in the government going after Silicon Valley in general.

Tucker Carlson LIGHTS UP Stooge Senator Mumbai Mike Lee for Big Tech Cheap Labor Giveaway

Mike Lee has spearheaded a massive cheap labor provision for Big Tech.

Tucker Carlson took down Utah Senator Mike Lee in a blistering monologue on his Thursday night show. Lee spearheaded a cheap labor provision to eliminate per-country caps on annual H-1B visa green cards through the Senate earlier this week, effectively monopolizing the H-1B system for nationals of large countries such as India. Big tech monopolies such as Apple, Google, and Facebook have aggressively lobbied what Lee called the “Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act,” seeking to replace their American workforce with a new supply of cheaper and compliant foreign labor.

“It will give them the bulk of all employment-based green cards- up to 90%. What will that do to you and your kids? Let’s say you would like your kids to graduate from college, with all the debt they have, and get a high paying job in technology? Much less likely now. That job is going to go to someone from another country.

Tucker also called out Republican Kevin Cramer, who served as Lee’s point man in jamming through the cheap labor provision in the Senate.

This is all unfolding at a time when we have the highest unemployment rate since you’ve lived in this country… And yet the United States Senate-led by the Republicans- has made it easier for foreigners to take high paying jobs. White collar jobs. The jobs you actually want your kids to have. If Silicon Valley gets its way, it’ll be the first and last immigration bill this administration signs off on. Hope it isn’t. And you should remember who did it. Mike Lee.”

The bill is expected to receive approval in the House. It will fall upon President Trump to veto the Big Tech globalist immigration bill.

These business Republicans are prioritizing a Silicon Valley visa worker giveaway as millions of Americans face unemployment in the coronavirus economy. It’s no coincidence that Big Tech’s cheap labor operative has earned the moniker of “Mumbai Mike.”
