Over 1,000 Big Tech Titans Donated to Democrat Super PAC Since 2015

Published

on

Over 1,000 executives and employees from Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Apple made financial contributions to ActBlue, a pro-Democrat super PAC that has raised over $1.5 billion since President Donald Trump entered the political scene in 2015.

An examination of ActBlue’s fundraising gathered by the Federal Elections Commission and compiled by watchdog website Campaign Money reveals a large influx of cash poured in from top executives, vice presidents, managers, and rank and file employees at major tech companies now leading the crusade against free speech.

A detailed list of donors to ActBlue for the 2015-2016 reporting period was provided to Big League Politics by independent journalist Tom Pappert. It includes:

  • Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg
  • Twitter co-founder Evan Williams
  • Google senior executives Urs Holzle, Vinton Cerf, and Jennifer Fitzpatrick
  • Apple senior executives Angela Ahrendts and Lisa Jackson

The organization raised over $1.5 billion in the last three years and recently boasted cracking $1 billion in this campaign cycle alone.

“The fundraising milestone, shared first with USA TODAY, offers a sign that the liberal activism fueled by President Donald Trump’s election isn’t slowing down,” USA Today reported on August 5.

As Big Tech works to silence a growing list of conservatives, libertarians, Christians, and supporters of President Trump, mounting pushback has prompted Silicon Valley spokespeople to deny any political motivation behind their censorship strategy – but many aren’t buying it.

President Trump fired a warning shot across the bow on Tuesday, hinting at plans to move against the tech monopolies and investigate possible collusion between mainstream media and Big Tech.

“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media,” Trump tweeted. “In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stores & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal?”

In a follow up tweet, the president continued, “96% of results on ‘Trump News’ are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous. Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!”

President Trump continued on the subject while speaking to reporters at the White House, warning that the Big Tech companies are “treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful.”

President Trump’s top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, also told journalists the Trump administration is “taking a look at” the possibility of regulating Google and other Big Tech companies.

While recent events led Twitter’s Jack Dorsey to admit the company leans left politically, Facebook and other companies maintain that they are a public forum for all ideas.

Most recently, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before Congress that he does not know the political leanings of his employees, and that Facebook strives to be a “platform for all ideas.”

It would appear from this research that while Big Tech companies pride themselves on diversifying their companies in terms of race, gender, ethnicity, and other physical characteristics – as evidenced by Google’s Global Head of Diversity Staffing appearing on the list of ActBlue donors – they have thus far not been able to ensure the same degree of intellectual diversity in their employees.

Medical Examiner: ‘No Physical Findings’ of ‘Traumatic Asphyxia or Strangulation’ in George Floyd’s Death

This may come up as crucial during the trial.

Published

on

A medical examiner who examined the body of George Floyd, who was killed during an encounter with police earlier this month, has determined that there are “no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation.”

“Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death,” the Hennepin County Medical Examiner determined in their report.

Floyd’s family has called for an independent autopsy of his body by a medical examiner to build the case against former Minneapolis Police Department Officer Derek Chauvin, the officer who appeared to hold his knee against the throat of Floyd during an encounter shortly before his death.

“We’ve just spoken recently with district attorney. We’re going to take custody back of George Floyd’s body, and we’re bringing in Dr. Michael Baden to perform an independent autopsy because we saw in the Eric Garner case and so many other cases where they have these people who work with the city come up with things that are such an illusion,” said family attorney Benjamin Crump, a prominent attorney known to take cases with racial implications.

“They’re going to have their own autopsy,” Crump said of Floyd’s relatives. “We’re not going to rely on this DA or this city to tell us the truth. We already saw the truth.”

Crump is inferring a possible conspiracy between law enforcement and the medical examiner in the hopes of getting Chauvin off from his criminal charges.

“We don’t want to begin to speculate about what their narrative is,” he said, cautioning it could be something like, “You didn’t know he had a heart condition?” or, “Oh, he had asthma.”

Forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, who performed the autopsy of deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein that determined evident foul play, is expected to perform the second autopsy on Floyd’s body.

“I’m awaiting their call to make the arrangements,” Dr. Baden said over the phone. “I would go to Minneapolis.”

The city of Minneapolis is on fire because of the response to Floyd’s death, and rioters have laid the city to waste:

Even though Chauvin has been charged with manslaughter and third-degree murder, the riots are continuing. If Chauvin is somehow exonerated in the court of law by a jury of his own peers, there will certainly be more senseless destruction. Rule by violent mob is replacing the rule of law in a diverse and multicultural America.
