The Demo/Social Media monopoly and manipulation, has rigged the 2020 election.
“We should be unfaithful to ourselves if we should ever lose sight of the danger to our liberties if anything partial or extraneous should infect the purity of our free, fair, virtuous, and independent elections.” —John Adams (1797)
The Democrats’ House Antitrust Subcommittee released a summary report on its 16-month “inquiry” into BIG Tech companies — including search and social media giants Google and Facebook, and online retailers Amazon and Apple. Antitrust laws are federal and state statutes designed to prevent market-crushing concentration of economic monopolies. There is no question that these companies are marketplace monopolies.
But the first question about this Demo-controlled House investigation: Why would the Democrat Party take on companies that are headed by their wealthiest leftist benefactors? Fact is, if Demos are biting the hand that feeds them, then the “bite” is a nibble intended to head off any action that might really interrupt the feeding.
The real feeding is not in campaign donations, but in election rigging.
While Democrat Party principals spent much of President Donald Trump’s first term pretending the Russians rigged the 2016 election, the real existential threat to free and fair elections — one almost as influential as the Demos’ Leftmedia propagandists — emerged in 2016 virtually unnoticed. It will be one of the biggest election determinants of 2020.
Don’t confuse economic monopolies with monopolies on the marketplace of ideas — particularly the search and social media opinion shapers.
Facebook and its Instagram and WhatsApp platforms, controlled by billionaire CEO Mark Zuckerberg, have a virtual market lock on opinion-shaping manipulation — and they are using that lock to suppress conservative speech and promote leftist ideologues and ideologies. Their monopoly on ideas is a huge threat to the future of American Liberty.
In August, when Barack Obama told his Democratic National Convention lemmings, “Do not let them take away your power — don’t let them take away your democracy,” he was referring to Republicans. More specifically, he was referring to Republican efforts to thwart the Demos’ voter fraud plans, which include carpet-bombing their own mailboxes with ballots and refusing to require voter IDs.
In other words, fighting back against Demo voter fraud constitutes “taking away your power,” and insisting on free and fair elections is tantamount to “taking away your democracy.”
Behind the curtain of all this rancor, though, is a subtler yet much greater threat to our elections than systemic Demo voter fraud. In fact, it’s a threat designed to give socialist Democrats perpetual control of government.
Leftist BIG Tech social media bias manifests primarily as selective censoring of conservative content with algorithms that actively suppress whatever the leftist tech giants want to suppress — at the proverbial turn of a data-selection switch.
An algorithm is a deliberate data-management process that is designed to solve a problem. In this case, the “problem” is conservative content itself — including news, commentary, and imagery. Big Tech’s leftist search and social media switches have emerged as the most effective way to manage that problem, and they are thus a powerful determinant in national elections.
