Gabbard Going After Google Is Double Plus Good

Gabbard Going After Google Is Double Plus Good

  • Any candidate that is publicly against the empire is the enemy of not only the state, it’s quislings in the media, the corporations who profit from it and the party machines of both the GOP and the DNC.

Authored by Tom Luongo:

Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is suing Google. It’s about time someone did. It’s one thing to for conservatives and libertarians to be outraged by their treatment by the tech giant, it’s another for them to go after a female Democrat.

Since Trump’s election the campaign to curtail free speech has went into overdrive and we are now far beyond Orwell’s dystopian vision in 1984 in terms of technological infrastructure.

Google makes Big Brother look like George Carlin’s the Hippy Dippy Weather Man with the “hippy dippy weather, man.” The drive to stamp out all forms of political division has only one thing animating it, protecting the drive of the elites I call The Davos Crowd to erect a transnational superstate to herd humanity to their vision of sustainability.

Gabbard is the only person running for the Democratic nomination worth any amount of my time. Her fundamental criticisms of the U.S. warfare state are spot on. She’s sincere about this. It’s costing her stature within her own party.

She’s a committed anti-imperialist. She’s also young, inexperienced and a little bit naive. But that, to me, is part of her charm. It means she is still malleable. She’s smart enough to be outraged about where we are headed and young enough to be flexible about what the solutions are to stop it from happening.

So, as such, she’s the perfect champion for the defenders of free speech and critics of the U.S. empire. A young, attractive, intelligent woman of mixed-race heritage with a service record who stands athwart the mainstream on the most important issue in politics today: the U.S. empire.

The entire time I was growing up the prevailing wisdom was Social Security was the third rail of U.S. politics. That, like so many other pearls of wisdom, was nonsense.

The true third rail of U.S. politics is empire.

Any candidate that is publicly against the empire is the enemy of not only the state, it’s quislings in the media, the corporations who profit from it and the party machines of both the GOP and the DNC.

That is Gabbard’s crime.

And it’s the only crime that matters.

For that crime Google acted to blunt interest in her campaign in the critical hours after the first democratic debate. So, Gabbard, rightly, sued them.

The two main points of her lawsuit are:

1) suspending her Google Ad account for six hours while search traffic for her was spiking and

2) Gmail disproportionately junked her campaign emails.

This represents an intervention into her ability to speak to voters and, as such, is a violation of not only her First Amendment rights but also, more critically, campaign finance law.

Whether this lawsuit goes anywhere or not is beside the point. Google will ignore it until they can’t and then settle with her before discovery. Gabbard doing this is good PR for her as it sets her on the right side of an incredibly important issue, censorship and technological bias/de-platforming of political outsiders.

It’s also good because if she does pursue this principally, it will lead to potential discovery of Google’s internal practices, lending the DoJ a hand in pursuing all the big tech firms for electioneering.

On a day when it became clear to the world that Robert Mueller led an investigation to affect the outcome of the 2018 mid-term elections (and beyond) while attempting to overthrow an elected President, Gabbard attacking the one of the main pillars of the information control system is both welcome and needed.

Her filing this lawsuit is making it clear that even a fairly conventional Democrat on most all other issues is to be marginalized if she criticizes the empire.

As libertarians and conservatives it is irrelevant if she is conventional in other areas. It doesn’t matter that she’s been to a CFR meeting or two or that she’s anti-gun. She’s not going to be president.

This is not about our virtue-signaling about the purity of essence of our political figures. They are tools to our ends. And on now two incredibly important issues leading up to the 2020 election Tulsi Gabbard is on the right side of them.

She is someone we can and should reach out to and support while she makes these issues the centerpiece of her campaign. Her timing is even more excellent than what I’ve already stated.

Filing this lawsuit is a pre-emptive strike at Google now that she’s qualified for the next two Democratic debates. And it may assist her in breaking out of the bottom tier of the Democratic field, Ron Paul style if she gets her opportunity.

Shedding light on Google’s anti-free speech practices is a fundamental good, one we should celebrate. Dare I say, it’s double plus good.

As shown in this document, Google’s chief executive played a key role in setting up Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign:

The United States narrative is now in the hands of the technology tyrants.

Suppression of dissident views, could be fascism, could be bolshevism. Best call it totalitarianism and leave it at that.

Uh, Tom, in case you were out to lunch, this is the same Tulsi Gabbard who voted with the House to condemn the Israel lobby resolution targeting the nonviolent Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions resistance movement, and who voted for Trump’s $1.47 trillion Pentagon (war) budget. Like ALL politicians, you can’t believe a single word they say, for they are nothing more than overpaid vassals of the Zio-Fascist ruling elite.

I would think Ms Gabbard was certainly being political in her vote. One can’t be anti Israeli and run for president of the US, I guarantee she knows more about Palestinians plight than most of the politicians, but she’ll be left in the dust if she plays that card anytime before an election. I don’t mind people being coy if the ends justify the means.

Tulsi is certainly the only Dem candidate with any interest. The rest is so banal and the old same, that I can’t get myself to even follow any of them. Unless Tulsi makes it to the top, it will be one more election with nobody to vote for. With respect to Mueller, Luongo is wrong. Mueller, together with Horowitz, set up the facts so the entire convoluted fraud by the Dems/FBI/CIA can be proved in a court of law from the facts and contradictions of facts assembled by the Mueller team. Hence his refusal to testify on anything not in… Read more »

You made almost as many excuses for Mueller as Mueller refused answers 198. Mueller is a deep state soldier with nothing but a deep state illegal shady past. His only job was to investigate allegations of Russian interference in 2016 elections. It had nothing to do with collusion, Trump or any other republican target. That was all mueller choosing to make it a political assassination if you will. He was so far off the reservation from the guidelines of his instructions he showed up on Mars during the hearings. He and the entire democratic team he assembled will be indicted… Read more »

This is the most presidential thing she’s done and I was already in intrigue. Yes she’s young and a bit naive as stated, but her willingness to learn truths is more than apparent. I saw this immediately when she chose to meet with Assad. I already knew he wasn’t some monster, that I did my homework long before helped, but it’s an automatic for me now that anytime some politician and msm peacocks about some country or foreign leader I automatically take the side they’re against. Fantastic counter against Google Ms Gabbard, I’m guessing you learned that from President Putin… Read more »

I have expunged ‘google’ from my online vocabulary, as well as my search engine. It’s that time, folks.

Google’s censorship is hitting this site, too. The very prescient take on Russiagate is being blocked.
