Whereas President Trump’s attorneys proceed to problem the validity of weird tallying, anybody excited by free and truthful elections ought to take into account the function of Massive Tech.
Undercover operatives for Challenge Veritas caught a Google government on digicam final 12 months boasting that solely Google may forestall “the subsequent Trump state of affairs.”
Twitter blatantly saved the general public from essential info lower than a month earlier than the election by suspending The New York Submit’s whole website over its blockbuster articles exposing the Biden household’s profitable contracts in Ukraine and with Communist China.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted after the election that this in all probability wasn’t the fitting factor to do. Surveys point out that sufficient voters to simply make a distinction wouldn’t have chosen Mr. Biden if that they had identified in regards to the colossal corruption. Thanks, Jack. We anticipate the Biden group will give you an acceptable type of gratitude.
However one thing much more highly effective in Silicon Valley was afoot than easy censorship.
For years, behavioral psychologist Robert Epstein has warned that Google, which accounts for greater than 90% of Web searches, can simply decide elections by adjusting algorithms to favor one occasion over the opposite. Provided that most individuals see solely the primary few entries on a search, the remaining would possibly as effectively be invisible.
“Google’s search algorithm can easily 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,” he wrote in 2015 in Politico Journal, basing his calculations on experiments he carried out together with Ronald E. Robertson.
They confirmed how the Search Engine Manipulation Impact (SEME) works in a research revealed within the Aug. 4, 2015, version of Proceedings of the Nationwide Academy of Sciences.
After 5 experiments carried out with greater than 4,500 individuals in america and India, they concluded that SEME “can shift the voting preferences of undecided voters … and search ranking bias can be masked so that people show no awareness of the manipulation.”
In July 2019, Mr. Epstein, a Democrat with a Harvard Ph.D., warned Congress that this was an actual menace to election integrity and that Google may have shifted 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton in 2016. He mentioned that within the 2020 election, SEME may shift as many as 15 million votes from Mr. Trump to Mr. Biden.
On Nov. 24, Mr. Epstein informed FOX Information’ Tucker Carlson that he believed the SEME approach had value Mr. Trump this time a “bare minimum” of at the least 6 million votes. He mentioned he had 733 discipline brokers in three swing states — Arizona, Florida and North Carolina — and that his group recorded greater than 500,000 “experiences,” akin to voting reminders despatched to some on Google however to not others.
“We found a period of days when the ‘vote’ reminder on Google’s home page was being sent only to liberals. Not one of our conservative field agents received a vote reminder during those days.” After he blew the whistle on this, he mentioned, Google started sending the “vote” reminder to everybody.
However, recall that we had an unprecedented quantity of early voting, with greater than 100 million ballots forged earlier than Election Day trip of 156.eight million. The injury may have already got been completed.
On Oct. 31, Mr. Epstein informed Tucker Carlson that “just based on the first 150,000 searches that we’ve looked at, and that’s about 1.5 million search results and over a million web pages, we’re finding very substantial pro-liberal bias in all 10 or at least nine out of 10 search results on the first page of Google search results – not on Bing or Yahoo, though.”
Vote manipulation utilizing expertise isn’t new. Rutherford B. Hayes, a Republican, received the 1876 presidential election over Democrat Samuel J. Tilden at the least partly due to assist from Western Union. On the time, Western Union had a digital monopoly on communications and “the company did its best to assure that only positive news stories about Hayes appeared in newspapers nationwide,” Mr. Epstein wrote. “It also shared all the telegrams sent by his opponent’s campaign staff with Hayes’s staff.”
The election dragged on for weeks, with either side charging vote fraud or voter suppression. In a retrospective article, The Washington Submit’s Ronald G. Shafter wrote, “A lot as President Trump is doing now, backers of Hayes, the governor of Ohio, charged the election was being stolen. The distinction was that, not like now, there was clear proof of fraud and voter intimidation.”
“Unlike now.” Proper.
Yet one more factor. Not everybody responded to requires unity after the divided Electoral Fee awarded the final 20 disputed votes, giving Hayes a 185-184 Electoral Faculty victory 4 months after the election.
Indignant Democrats, the forerunners of Black Lives Matter and Antifa, cried “Tilden or blood” and deliberate “to send a threatening and bellicose mob to the National Capital to see that the count is made according to their wishes,” reported an unnamed Washington newspaper.
Given Mr. Epstein’s calculations, the Election Night time poll dumps for Mr. Biden and the Democrats’ collusion with Massive Media and Massive Tech, we’re seeing the 21st-century equal of what Democrats in 1876 referred to as the “stolen election.”
