Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) launched a lawsuit against Google, one of the largest and most egregious big tech companies, for allegedly censoring her campaign since its inception using the same tools the company uses to systematically censor conservatives.
According to Gabbard’s legal team, Google has been instrumental in the censorship of her fledgling campaign. Gabbard, the only anti-war, anti-interventionism candidate running in the Democrat Party, claims Google has systematically worked against her campaign since its launch.
Her lawsuit, available online, maintains that “Since at least June 2019, Google has used its control over online political speech to silence Tulsi Gabbard, a candidate millions of Americans want to hear from.” The lawsuit goes on, “With this lawsuit, Tulsi seeks to stop Google from further intermeddling in the 2020 United States Presidential Election”
From the lawsuit:
On June 28, 2019 – at the height of Gabbard’s popularity among Internet searchers in the immediate hours after the debate ended, and in the thick of the critical post debate period (when television viewers, radio listeners, newspaper readers, and millions of other Americans are discussing and searching for presidential candidates), Google suspended Tulsi’s Google Ads account without warning.
For hours, as millions of Americans searched Google for information about Tulsi, and as Tulsi was trying, through Google, to speak to them, her Google Ads account was arbitrarily and forcibly taken offline. Throughout this period, the Campaign worked frantically to gather more information about the suspension; to get through to someone at Google who could get the Account back online; and to understand and remedy the restraint that had been placed on Tulsi’s speech – at precisely the moment when everyone wanted to hear from her.
In response, the Campaign got opacity and an inconsistent series of answers from Google. First, Google claimed that the Account was suspended because it somehow violated Google’s terms of service. (It didn’t.) Later, Google changed its story. Then it changed its story again. Eventually, after several hours of bizarre and conflicting explanations while the suspension dragged on, Google suddenly reversed course completely and reinstated the Account. To this day, Google has not provided a straight answer – let alone a credible one – as to why Tulsi’s political speech was silenced right precisely when millions of people wanted to hear from her.
This comes only weeks after Google’s election and political interference were exposed by Project Veritas and James O’Keefe. O’Keefe revealed that Google manipulated its search results to influence campaigns both in the United States and abroad, and that the company instructs its employees on how to protest right wing policies.
Project Veritas later informed Congress of Google’s actions.
After an earth-shattering week of revelations from Project Veritas showing Google’s plans to manipulate the U.S. presidential election against Donald Trump in 2020, the whistle-blowing organization is making sure that Congress is aware of their findings.
The organization’s legal counsel, Benjamin Barr of Statecraft Law, sent letters to a bipartisan group of lawmakers in Washington D.C. including Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Mike Lee (R-UT), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Mark Warner (D-VA), and Ed Markey (D-MA) as well as Reps. Louis Gohmert (R-TX), David Cicilline (D-RI), Steve King (R-IA), and Jim Jordan (R-OH) informing them that Big Tech is an existential threat to our democratic process.
Veritas provided a link to the letter they sent to Sen. Cruz where they outlined exactly how Google was violating election law with their abhorrent practices.
It remains to be seen what elected officials will do to reign in Google and other big tech companies, but earlier this week, Attorney General William Barr’s Department of Justice announced a broad antitrust review into big tech companies.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
