The idea that corporate media, government, and large technology companies collaborate to create a false sense of reality in an effort to drive a specific élite chosen narrative has been the stuff of conspiracy legend for years. However, thanks to the Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, the Freedom of Information Act, and WikiLeaks, the inner workings of how empire operates have been clearly put on display for the world to see.
In March, The Free Thought Project reported on the explosive emails revealing how the U.S. State Department and Google worked in concert to topple the government of elected Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in an attempt at forwarding U.S. geopolitical strategy.
Prior to that report, they revealed Clinton’s cozy relationship with Google and YouTube after an email chain exposed the internet giant bowing down to Clinton’s demand for censorship.
Now, in another bombshell revelation, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has backed up Clinton and Google’s relationship, claiming they are working together to promote the Democratic presidential candidate.
Assange appeared via video conference at a session of ‘End of the Monopoly: The Open Information Age’, part of the ‘New Era of Journalism: Farewell to Mainstream international media’ forum organized at the Rossiya Segodnya International Multimedia Press Center in Moscow.
“Google is directly engaged with Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” said Assange before going on to claim the technology giant used the US State Department on “a quid pro quo” basis.
Behavioral Psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein, who has pioneered research on how search engines affect elections and much more, explained to Lee Camp the effects of such a relationship and that “when one candidate is higher in search rankings ‒ that is, looks better than another candidate in search rankings ‒ that shifts a lot of votes to that candidate. And it’s not a tiny number. It’s a very, very big number of votes.”
“Google is heavily integrated with Washington power, at personal level and at business level. Google, which has increasing control over the distribution channels,… is intensely allying itself with the US exceptionalism. It shows the will to use that at different levels. It will inevitably influence its audience,” said Assange.
He then added, “Google is an intensely Washington, DC-aligned company. I see a Google exit from China… It seems much more to do with Google’s feeling that it is part of ‘family America’ and that it is opposed to the Chinese.”
Shortly after the WikiLeaks revelation, the group SourceFed actually found evidence that Google may be manipulating autocomplete recommendations in favor of Hillary Clinton. As SourceFed explains:
If true, this would mean that Google Searches aren’t objectively reflecting what the majority of Internet searches are actually looking for, possibly violating Google’s algorithm. According to a research paper cited in this video, that kind of search result manipulation has the potential to substantially influence the outcome of actual elections.
Below is the very powerful video explaining this connection.
