Feds Demand Gun Scope Data From Apple and Google

Apple and Google have mountains of data on those who use smart phones, including where we are at any given time, what we look at online, what we buy, et cetera. That means the feds have mountains of data — at least potentially. Anything Big Tech has, its BFF Big Government can acquire. Forbes has an example pertaining to the imperiled right to bear arms:

According to an application for a court order filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) on September 5, investigators want information on users of Obsidian 4, a tool used to control rifle scopes made by night-vision specialist American Technologies Network Corp. The app allows gun owners to get a live stream, take video and calibrate their gun scope from an Android or iPhone device. …

If the court approves the demand, and Apple and Google decide to hand over the information, it could include data on thousands of people who have nothing to do with the crimes being investigated, privacy activists warned. … Apple and Google will be told to hand over not just the names of anyone who downloaded the scope app from August 1, 2017 to the current date, but their telephone numbers and IP addresses too, which could be used to determine the location of the user.

If this is happening under a Republican administration, imagine the data bureaucrats will acquire with power-mad Democrats in control.

Anti-American tyrants like Dianne Feinstein, Robert Francis O’Rourke, and Joe Biden have made it crystal clear that as soon as they have the leverage, they will begin confiscating firearms from law-abiding Americans. The progressive agenda can’t be inflicted on a populace able to defend itself.

People will ignore the mandatory “buybacks.” Then will come the knock at the door, because when Silicon Valley knows everything, the federal government will know everything.

Muslim Okay, Christian Forbidden as Google Keyword

Google is so powerful that it can make updates to the Newspeak Dictionary. “Muslim” is confirmed as an acceptable advertising keyword. “Christian” as a Google keyword is forbidden. One America News reports:

No good deed goes unpunished at Google, as Mighty Oaks demonstrates.

That Google allows “Muslim” but forbids “Christian” reflects the Left’s Cultural Marxist strategy. Islam is alien and hostile; it gets a pass. Christianity is a core component of Western heritage going back 2,000 years; it is banned. Google could not make its fundamental hostility to American civilization more obvious if it tried.

Greg Coppola Gets Himself Suspended From Google

Despite the strategic hysteria ginned up by Democrats, Russia does not pose a serious threat to our democratic republic. Google does. Watch Google Senior Software Engineer Greg Coppola commit career suicide by going public about the political agenda of an alarmingly powerful corporation devoted to advancing a still more alarming ideology:

Did you think Coppola would get away with this? Of course not:

Hours after Google engineer Greg Coppola appeared with James O’Keefe in a Project Veritas video, he was put on administrative leave by his company. In the video, Coppola said that he believed that Google News and Google’s search engine algorithms were biased.

A heavy hand toward dissidents is nothing new at Google:

In 2017, Google fired engineer James Damore after he wrote a memo about the company’s “ideological echo chamber.” In 2019, Republican engineer Mike Wacker was fired after he complained about the hostile attitude in the corporate culture toward conservatives.

Coppola is correct that Big Tech and Big Media have in effect merged with the Democrat Party. Their power to propagandize explains why Democrats are able to run on an agenda that would otherwise frighten off any sane person.

Who is the trail boss? That is, who determines where Big Tech and Big Media drovers drive the herd?

It sure isn’t Nancy Pelosi; she has been forced to bow before junior congresscritter Ilhan Omar. Maybe Google isn’t a tool of the Democrat Party; maybe the Democrat Party is a tool of Google.

Google brings to mind the classic line from the movie Videodrome once again:

It has a philosophy, and that is what makes it dangerous.

Peter Thiel on Why Google Helps Chinese Military

Billionaire Big Tech investor Peter Thiel floats two possible explanations for Google helping the military of our Chinese rivals to acquire breakthrough artificial intelligence technology (while refusing to work with the US military):

• Google is afraid China would acquire the technology anyway through illicit means.

• Google is a cult of leftists who will reflexively side with a nominally communist totalitarian country against their own out of sheer moonbattery.

One of these explanations makes sense, in light of Google’s well-established record of extreme moonbattery.

Here’s Thiel on Tucker Carlson’s show:

It’s a good thing for Google that treason isn’t considered a crime anymore.

YouTube Suppresses Project Veritas Exposé of Google Election Meddling

One advantage to owning YouTube is that it allows Google to suppress videos that reveal its alarming election meddling on behalf of the Democrat Party:

Project Veritas has released a new report on Google which includes undercover video of a Senior Google Executive, leaked documents, and testimony from a Google insider. The report appears to show Google’s plans to affect the outcome of the 2020 elections and “prevent” the next “Trump situation.”

Barks Google’s Head of Responsible Innovation Jen Gennai:

“Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”

Here we learn that the purpose of a search engine is “preventing the next Trump situation” — i.e., preventing the unwashed masses from electing someone the liberal establishment does not want elected.

The Responsible Innovation sector run by this zealot “monitors and evaluates the responsible implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies.” We would be safer under Skynet.

According to Gennai, the point of AI at Google is to inflict “what’s fair and what’s equitable.” By now, we know enough to shake with terror whenever a liberal with power brandishes the words “fair” and “equitable.”

Russian election interference is not good, but we have more serious problems closer to home.

Confirming that it does not act in good faith, Google removed the Project Veritas exposé from YouTube. Fortunately, you can still see it here, and get an idea of just how rabidly devoted to far left ideology Google really is:

Update:

As you can see above, Vimeo killed the video on behalf of the Silicon Valley Thought Police. You can still watch it at Project Veritas here.

Google Autocomplete Defends Jussie Smollett

Anything produced by the progressive establishment is likely to be a pernicious lie. This includes Google autocomplete.

Given that Jussie Smollett is the most infamous of the many hater hoaxers who disgrace our day and age, it is unsurprising that people who search for his name are interested in the hoax he lamely tried to pull off, but for which he received no significant punishment, due to his friends among the liberal elite. And yet:

A review of Google’s autocomplete function on searches of Smollett found no references to anything regarding the hate crime, even though the company’s own data show it is the only reason his name was ever searched.

This is no accident, but rather deliberate policy on the part of Google, which is suppressing the searches people are likely to want so as not to “associate potentially disparaging or sensitive terms with named individuals.”

How kind of them to protect the reputation of Jussie Smollett, widely regarded as one of the lowest lifeforms on the planet (although not by moonbats).

Google does the same for people who are not of the Left. Ha ha; just kidding:

Nicholas Sandmann, the Covington High School student the media made into a villain after a video falsely portrayed him as a racist bully, wasn’t a beneficiary of the policy. All the Google search suggestions for Sandmann are related to the video of him.

Only the guilty get protection. The innocent continue to be smeared. This is one of the many ways Google helps to inflict social justice.

Google/Facebook/Twitter Employees Give Big to Dems

Any conservatives hoping to get fair treatment from Google/Facebook/Twitter should consider the political donations made by employees of these overwhelmingly leftist operations:

Employees of the tech giants have given a total of $2.4 million to House and Senate candidates, according to Federal Election Commission filings. Of that, only $176,000 – just 8 percent – went to Republicans.

The leftist radicalism of Big Tech has been getting worse at an alarming rate:

By comparison, in the last midterms in 2014, Google, Facebook and Twitter workers gave a total of $838,000 to congressional candidates, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Of that, $679,000 went to Democrats and $259,000 went to Republicans.

If this trend continues, Democrats won’t need George Soros anymore.

Google Workers Conspired to Counter Travel Ban

Its dominance among search engines gives Google a great deal of political power. The rigidly ideologically nondiverse company’s employees give thought to how they can exploit it:

Days after the Trump administration instituted a controversial travel ban in January 2017, Google employees discussed ways they might be able to tweak the company’s search-related functions to show users how to contribute to pro-immigration organizations and contact lawmakers and government agencies, according to internal company emails.

The travel ban was intended to stem the ongoing flood of “refugees” from terrorist hotbeds, which is in effect a military invasion. Refer to Europe for specifics.

According to Google, none of the suggestions was implemented. Even if not, we can see what lines these people think along.

One of the emails … explained that there was a “large brainstorm” going throughout the company’s marketing division over how to respond.

“Overall idea: Leverage search to highlight important organizations to donate to, current news, etc. to keep people abreast of how they can help as well as the resources available for immigrations [sic] or people traveling,” the email says.

The pernicious ACLU is given as a specific example of an organization people should be encouraged to donate to.

The email included a compilation of specific ideas that individual company officials had already floated. Some apparently involved finding ways to “actively counter” Google searches that produced anti-Islamic and anti-Hispanic search results.

The terms “anti-Islamic” and “anti-Hispanic” would cover anything anti-terrorist or anti–open borders, from the viewpoint of Google employees.

It would be naive to assume the search results Google produces are not biased in favor of the company’s radical agenda.

Google to Begin Policing the Air

No longer content to police thought on the Internet, Google will now police the air:

Google’s Street View cars — the global cruisers that collect data for the making of more accurate maps — now have a new mission, and it’s one that’s sure to make the Green groups cheer. The tech company’s bolstering its fleet with updated pollution-recording devices from the San Francisco company, Aclima, to patrol streets in Europe and in the United States, and monitor fluctuating levels of air quality.

Carefully selected data will inevitably find its way to leftist politicians, who can implement appropriate policies if Google finds that we are emitting too much harmless carbon dioxide or actual pollutants.

Liberals already hate America’s love affair with cars. Imagine the arguments they can make against driving and in favor of rail, or buses, or bicycles — or walking — armed with the latest breaking snapshot figures on pollution levels, as recorded during a city’s rush hour.

Google is also partnering with the radical Environmental Defense Fund to get the data to those who can do the most damage to our way of life.

As Google Earth Outreach program manager Karin Tuxen-Bettman said in a statement reported by TechCrunch: “These measurements can provide cities with new neighborhood-level insights to help cities accelerate efforts in their transition to smarter, healthier cities.”

“Smarter” is libspeak for “less free.”

Google Proposal: Lower Pay for Lower Position on Cultural Marxist Totem Pole

Goodbye merit. In utopia, compensation will be based not on your aptitude, your industriousness, or the results you produce, but on your position regarding the cultural Marxist totem pole — or at least it will if moonbats infesting Google have their way:

On behalf of Zevin Asset Management, a self-described “socially responsible” investment firm, Google employees presented a proposal that requested Alphabet Inc. [Google’s parent company] consider “integrating sustainability performance metrics — including metrics regarding diversity and inclusion — among other factors evaluated in awarding executive pay … to help drive sustainability performance and improve senior executive accountability on race and gender-based inclusion during a time of particular challenge in our Company’s development.”

That is, employee pay would be determined in part by the same factor that gets employees hired in the first place these days: not being a member of the core population that built America. If you manage to get hired despite being a white male who doesn’t base his identity on sexual perversion or rejecting Christianity, you would be paid less — probably increasingly less, given the incremental nature of progressive tactics.

No Political Advertising on Google in Washington State

Google has put the kibosh on political advertising in Washington State — possibly indefinitely:

This means that the largest advertising platform in the world is now off limits to anyone wishing to speak about a candidate or ballot measure anywhere in the Evergreen State.

For once, Google is not the villain.

The root of the problem is a recently enacted state rule requiring companies like Google to maintain extensive records for every political advertisement they accept, including ads about both candidates and ballot measures.

The pile of data Google would have to collect is so excessive that you can’t blame the company for balking.

The implications are alarming.

The world’s most prominent outlet for media information has now censored all speech about candidates and ballot measures—prototypical First Amendment-protected expression—out of fear that the government will punish it for not publicizing confidential information.

This is how liberty dies: not by full frontal assault, but by gradual asphyxiation through excessive regulation.

Google Identifies Republican State Senator Trudy Wade as Bigot

Google blamed “vandalism” when people objected to it listing Nazism as the primary ideology of the California Republican Party…

Or maybe it was just an accident. Funny how mistakes and acts of vandalism always seem to support the core message of militantly politicized Google.

Google’s Selfish Ledger Reveals Social Engineering Ambitions

Google is an explicitly ideological entity, known to fire employees for expressing even centrist opinions where only an ultra-left viewpoint is allowed. It has tremendous leverage, being able to an alarming extent to determine what is seen and what is not seen on the Internet. If knowledge is power, Google’s possession of vast amounts of data on us makes it a rival to the federal government. Given this context, try to watch this leaked internal Google video about social engineering without shuddering in horror:

See The Verge for more information. The leaked video was made by Nick Foster…

Foster envisions a future where “the notion of a goal-driven ledger becomes more palatable” and “suggestions may be converted not by the user but by the ledger itself.” This is where the Black Mirror undertones come to the fore, with the ledger actively seeking to fill gaps in its knowledge and even selecting data-harvesting products to buy that it thinks may appeal to the user. The example given in the video is a bathroom scale because the ledger doesn’t yet know how much its user weighs. The video then takes a further turn toward anxiety-inducing sci-fi, imagining that the ledger may become so astute as to propose and 3D-print its own designs. Welcome home, Dave, I built you a scale.

Foster’s vision of the ledger goes beyond a tool for self-improvement. The system would be able to “plug gaps in its knowledge and refine its model of human behavior” — not just your particular behavior or mine, but that of the entire human species.

Where ambition is concerned, totalitarians of the past were pikers compared to Google’s social engineers.

Whoever writes the code, rules the future. Almost exclusively, militant moonbats write the code. Silicon Valley has little tolerance for anyone else.

Google Cracks Down on Instructional Gun Videos on YouTube

Google/YouTube proves once again that it is too ideological to serve as a reliable component of the information infrastructure. Presumably exploiting Parkland as a pretext to attack pro-liberty gun culture as so many others on the left have been doing, it has announced a new policy on instructional videos, banning content from YouTube that commits the following infractions:

Intends to sell firearms or certain firearms accessories through direct sales (e.g., private sales by individuals) or links to sites that sell these items. These accessories include but may not be limited to accessories that enable a firearm to simulate automatic fire or convert a firearm to automatic fire (e.g., bump stocks, gatling triggers, drop-in auto sears, conversion kits), and high capacity magazines (i.e., magazines or belts carrying more than 30 rounds).

Provides instructions on manufacturing a firearm, ammunition, high capacity magazine, homemade silencers/suppressors, or certain firearms accessories such as those listed above. This also includes instructions on how to convert a firearm to automatic or simulated automatic firing capabilities.

Shows users how to install the above-mentioned accessories or modifications.

Mixed in with arguably reasonable measures regarding converting guns to full auto is censorship of legal technology. Worse, you can now lose your YouTube channel for linking to a business that sells firearms.

Every time there is a tragedy involving a gun, the ratchet tightens. Who knows what restrictions Google will impose after the next shooting?

Rather than wait to find out, some gun enthusiasts are already bailing out. More reliable alternatives already exist, including RECOILtv. Some have resorted to using PornHub, which couldn’t be less wholesome than moonbat-infested Google.

Google Puts the Squeeze on LifeSiteNews

LifeSiteNews has experienced the ire of the Ministry of Truth — a.k.a. Google:

Google, the world’s most popular internet tool, has removed revenue-generating ads from select LifeSiteNews reports after it deemed that some of the content on the pro-life and pro-family website violated Google standards.

Stories that were regarded as unacceptable by Google included a woman reporting on the sexual abuse she experienced growing up in an LGBT home, a piece featuring a baby born prematurely and looking conspicuously human, one with a video of another conspicuously human fetus still in the amniotic sac, and a story with no images of a baby born alive after an abortion failed.

Evidently, anything likely to tug heartstrings in a direction not to Google’s ultraleft liking is subject to ad restrictions.

These days it is difficult to get anywhere online without Google. The company is aware of its power and does not hesitate to exploit it to advance an ideology that is pernicious and depraved. This places an insalutary spin on the entire Internet.

Google/YouTube Cranks Up the Censorship

When it comes to information and opinion dissemination on the Internet, the far left owns the infrastructure.
