Are Social Media Leviathans Colluding to Undermine the 2020 Elections?
May Heaven help other people of conscience to awaken to the wrongs being committed against the people in this Democratic Republic. It is yet not an oligarchy, and may it continue to remain a Land of Liberty,

Who needs Russians meddling in an election, when you have genuine home-grown oligarchs right here in the United States?
Last week, ironically as America celebrated the birth of the Land of Liberty, a social media giant was exposed for their plans to tamper with the election process. James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas posted an undercover video of Google officials freely admitting their plans of action to do as much in their power to undermine the 2020 electoral process as possible. The video was posted, but once discovered, it was promptly removed from YouTube. Links were broken. Nothing to see for a truly unsuspecting general public. Yet, there was much to be hidden from candid disclosure. However, it was fortunate that quick-acting patriots were able to preserve the original video.
Common citizens are discovering that the social media leviathans like Google and Facebook, et. al. must see their big opportunity to meddle in the 2020 election with impunity. It is ironic that nearly one year ago today, a House Judiciary Committee received testimony from social media leaders regarding the investigation into the appearance of purposeful political bias and religious bias within the social media arena. Representatives from YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook appeared at the hearing. Yet, with the Democrats in control of the House of Representatives now, it is unlikely that any concerns of impropriety or illegality will be voiced by the members of the majority party—especially, if the election outcome will benefit them. Democratic process? No.
If the political criminal cabal can avoid public scrutiny or civil litigation with respect to all of the other crimes against the Republic, why would the social media moguls worry about anyone who discovered their secret protocols to undermine an election? Who needs Russians meddling in an election, when you have genuine home-grown oligarchs right here in the United States?
Democrat-controlled mainstream media, or the MSM moguls who control the Democrats, do not care if all of the noise aimed at denigrating Trump by the political criminal cabal is baseless
There is a pervasive stench embedded within the irony of the failure of genuine justice at the core of the government in this time that it has a paralyzing effect on the average citizen. That stench is emanating, not only from the swamp in Washington D.C., but also from the realms of Silicon Valley in the cesspools known as Google and Facebook and Twitter. The poor average citizen has no scorecard, is not able to keep up with the constant state of corruption that passes for “political correctness” on both American coasts. However, the dismay and days of dumbfoundedness must pass, as citizens need to demand justice in the genuine sense. The hollow justice of Democrats will no longer suffice.
Consider that in January of 2017, the outgoing Obama Administration made a substantial claim that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence reported all three intelligence agencies, the CIA, FBI, and the NSA had concurred that the intent of Vladimir Putin and his government was to undermine Hillary Clinton’s real chances of winning the election. The National Intelligence report determined that “Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency.” Obama seems to be the one who ordered the report to be de-classified—mainly to set the stage for the investigation of the alleged Trump collusion with Russia.
Yet, when the “shoe is on the other foot,” the Democrat-controlled mainstream media, or the MSM moguls who control the Democrats, do not care if all of the noise aimed at denigrating Trump by the political criminal cabal is baseless. It has done much to harm Trump’s respectability and his candidacy in 2020. Just the attempt at raising enough noise to cast reasonable (or unreasonable) doubt upon the president is important. It was important for Obama to bring it up, and doing so at the same time straight-faced with the knowledge of his own potentially criminal behavior in the Spygate drama.
The time has come for the real investigations of undermining U.S. elections
Now, as the best laid plans of Google executives are exposed, who really cares about any Russian meddling in the next elections? Certainly, the Democrat leaders never cared because they knew it was a ruse. But, Google, the information leviathan can control what people find on the internet, and what they won’t find as well—that is because they control the search process. It is much like going to the library to do some research and the “helpful” librarian only shows you materials of only one-sided or biased information. One’s basic assumptions are controlled by the “thought police.” Only they know what is good for one to study, or to be aware of—even if it is only one side of the story, or a few pieces of the puzzle.
Unfortunately, someone needs to break it to the geniuses at Google that there are at least two sides to a narrative—not just a single, politically sanitized and correct version. The charge that the Obama Administration brought against the Russians, and ultimately against Trump, is the charge against the social media leviathans. It is time the elected federal government officials take a real serious look behind the techno double talk at these major corporations that pretend to be public forums, If indeed there is genuine concern over any entities that successfully “undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process” the time has come for the real investigations of undermining U.S. elections. This is overdue.
Megalithic business empires that have become way too large for their own good
Additionally, such social media leviathans like Google, Facebook, and Twitter and the like need to be viewed for what they really are: megalithic business empires that have become way too large for their own good, and for the public good. If such manipulation of online search results occurs, if the deliberate removal of patriotic, conservative, or Christian postings on Facebook or Twitter does occur regularly, or if deliberate censorship exists, American citizens need to seek alternative sources of information exchange or online interaction. A mass boycott would speak much more effectively than an effort at government regulation. Monopolies have and can be busted but the general public needs to boycott these social media outlets.
The civil rights movement started and succeeded when truly oppressed black Americans were able to put their own self-interests aside and boycotted the public bus system in the South. What is happening right now by the social media leviathans is even more dangerous and insidious than what the Southern Democrats were doing to control the invisible plantations of the Deep South. A grassroots response is required if any substantial accountability can be established, May Heaven help other people of conscience to awaken to the wrongs being committed against the people in this Democratic Republic. It is yet not an oligarchy, and may it continue to remain a Land of Liberty,
