(New York City) — 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.”

The report includes undercover footage of longtime Google employee and Head of Responsible Innovation, Jen Gennai saying:

“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.”

Jen Gennai

Said Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe:

“This is the third tech insider who has bravely stepped forward to expose the secrets of Silicon Valley.  These new documents, supported by undercover video, raise questions of Google’s neutrality and the role they see themselves fulfilling in the 2020 elections.”

Jen Gennai is the head of “Responsible Innovation” for Google, a sector that monitors and evaluates the responsible implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies.  In the video, Gennai says Google has been working diligently to “prevent” the results of the 2016 election from repeating in 2020:

“We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’re rapidly been like, what happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again.”

“We’re also training our algorithms, like, if 2016 happened again, would we have, would the outcome be different?”

Google: Artificial Intelligence Is For A “fair and equitable” State

According to the insider, Machine Learning Fairness is one of the many tools Google uses to promote a political agenda.  Documents leaked by a Google informant elaborate on Machine Learning Fairness and the “algorithmic unfairness” that AI product intervention aims to solve:

“The reason we launched our A.I. principles is because people were not putting that line in the sand, that they were not saying what’s fair and what’s equitable so we’re like, well we are a big company, we’re going to say it.” – Jen Gennai, Head Of Responsible Innovation, Google

The Google insider explained the impact of artificial intelligence and Machine Learning Fairness:

“They’re going to redefine a reality based on what they think is fair and based upon what they want, and what and is part of their agenda.”

Determining credible news and an editorial agenda. . .

Additional leaked documents detail how Google defines and prioritizes content from different news publishers and how its products feature that content.  One document, called the “Fake News-letter” explains Google’s goal to have a “single point of truth” across their products.

Another document received by Project Veritas explains the “News Ecosystem” which mentions “editorial guidelines” that appear to be determined and administered internally by Google.  These guidelines control how content is distributed and displayed on their site.

The leaked documents appear to show that Google makes news decisions about what news they promote and distribute on their site.

Comments made by Gennai raise similar questions.  In a conversation with Veritas journalists, Gennai explains that “conservative sources” and “credible sources” don’t always coincide according to Google’s editorial practices.

“We have gotten accusations of around fairness is that we’re unfair to conservatives because we’re choosing what we find as credible news sources and those sources don’t necessarily overlap with conservative sources …” 

The insider shed additional light on how YouTube demotes content from influencers like Dave Rubin and Tim Pool:

“What YouTube did is they changed the results of the recommendation engine. And so what the recommendation engine is it tries to do, is it tries to say, well, if you like A, then you’re probably going to like B. So content that is similar to Dave Rubin or Tim Pool, instead of listing Dave Rubin or Tim Pool as people that you might like, what they’re doing is that they’re trying to suggest different, different news outlets, for example, like CNN, or MSNBC, or these left leaning political outlets.”

 

Internal Google Document: “People Like Us Are Programmed” 

An additional document Project Veritas obtained, titled “Fair is Not the Default” says “People (like us) are programmed” after the results of machine learning fairness.  The document describes how “unconscious bias” and algorithms interact.

Veritas is the “Only Way”

Said the insider:

“The reason why I came to Project Veritas is that you’re the only one I trust to be able to be a real investigative journalist.  Investigative journalist is a dead career option, but somehow, you’ve been able to make it work.  And because of that I came to Project Veritas because I knew that this was the only way that this story would be able to get out to the public.”

“I mean, this is a behemoth, this is a Goliath, I am but a David trying to say that the emperor has no clothes. And, um, being a small little ant I can be crushed, and I am aware of that. But, this is something that is bigger than me, this is something that needs to be said to the American public.”

Project Veritas intends to continue investigating abuses in big tech companies and encourages more Silicon Valley insiders to share their stories through their Be Brave campaign.

As of publishing, Google did not respond to Project Veritas’ request for comment.  Additional leaked Google documents can be viewed HERE.

Your Feet Are In The Air

We helped build these platforms when we joined and shared with family and friends. We helped make some people super rich and powerful and now they turn and hide behind our misplaced notion that they have the freedom to promote or demote whatever they feel free to do.

It is the old immoral bait and switch tactic.

beGoogled!!

Do you see what I see? (ignore the color highlight). This is a Google search.

Sneaky sneaky sneaky they are.

This is why I’ve sought out other search engines and use them.   It is inconvenient, but still easier than getting in the car and going to the library and opening periodicals and searching through index cards.

“One or more of your videos have been removed”

Well, that is an understatement.  27 of my 53 saved videos on Zionism have been removed.  I guess the bright side is it will take me half the time now to get to the bottom of the truth about Zionism.

Do you understand the impact of this?  Let’s say you were dying of cancer and you were collecting information on it and came back to work your way through your stack of stuff and now it was only half as high.  Who should decide whether what is missing is important or not?

Gab Banned By Godaddy, Shopify, Medium

Ag Plans Investigation;  Founder Inundated With Death Threats

The media is going after Torba’s friends and family
Chris Menahan | Information Liberation – OCTOBER 30, 2018

The free speech social network Gab has been taken offline after being banned by web domain registrar GoDaddy, shopping cart service Shopify, PayPal, payment processor Stripe, web host service Joylent and even blog site Medium since being blamed by the media for the mass shooting in Pittsburgh.

Though heinous crimes are regularly livestreamed by criminal users of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube without the owners of those sites being held personally responsible, Gab is being held to a completely different standard and its founder Andrew Torba is being targeted for personal destruction.

Gab’s website now shows only this statement:

https://twitter.com/getongab/status/1056708683130781696
https://twitter.com/getongab/status/1056720079574814720
https://twitter.com/getongab/status/1056735204717420544

Former DNC chair Howard Dean said Gab should be tried as an “accomplice” to murder:

 

Attorney General John Shapiro told CBS Philly on Monday: “Were also going to be conducting independently a review of the social media platform Gab, used by this individual in Pittsburgh. We’re going to do everything we can to support law enforcement and do our work as well to keep people safe.”

 

The media is going after Torba’s friends and family:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Torba spoke out about the censorship push on The Alex Jones Show:

Dana Loesch criticized the hypocrisy of the situation on Twitter:

 

The left’s favorite line is to say “if you don’t like their platforms build your own.”

That’s exactly what Torba did and yet he’s being blacklisted and banned from every service on the internet over the criminal actions of a user which he had no control over and is doing everything in his power to bring to justice.

Caught in the Act: Democratic Consultants Alter Candidate’s Wikipedia Page to Hide Socialist Past

Democratic consulting firm GMMB was caught altering their client, Lisa Brown’s, Wikipedia page, the Washington Free Beacon reported. The company was doing their best to hide Brown’s socialist ties as she faces a tight race against House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R) for Washington’s 5th Congressional District.

Brown’s Wikipedia page originally said:

Around 1990, Brown traveled to Nicaragua to teach economics at the Central American University in Managua, where she supported the Sandinista National Liberation Front government. When the conservative National Opposition Union won power in 1990, Brown expressed worry that the new leaders would walk back the partially state-run command economy, replacing it with a more conservative, market-based economy.

They changed that paragraph to:

Around 1990, Brown traveled to [[Nicaragua]] to teach economics at the Central American University in Managua.

Another paragraph that was changed originally said:

In 2016, Brown accompanied former Lieutenant Governor of Washington Brad Owen to Cuba on a fact-finding trip concerning healthcare Upon return, Brown praised aspects of the community based Healthcare in Cuba In the same interview, Brown stated that aspects of the Cuban model should be used in the United States.

The paragraph now reads:

In 2016, Brown accompanied former Lieutenant Governor of Washington Brad Owen to Cuba on a fact-finding trip concerning healthcare.

The Wikipedia page was edited by the IP address mail.gmmb.com and the consulting group’s website is gmmb.com, the Free Beacon reported.

The information that was edited concerns a trip Brown took to Central America. During that time, she worked “opposition to U.S. policy in Central America.”

“I started on the activist side of politics,” Brown said during an event at Washington State University back in March. “I worked in opposition to U.S. policy in Central America, which I felt was supporting governments that were not supporting the human rights of the people in the countries and creating war and refugees.”

During the 1990s, Brown taught macroeconomics at the University of Central America and was “one of hundreds of so-called ‘internacionalistas,’ cooperating with Nicaragua’s outgoing Sandinista government by offering technical skills,” the Free Beacon reported.

Those who were deemed “internacionalistas” strongly supported Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortena, who was head of the Sandinista National Liberation Front, the Democratic Socialist Party in Nicaragua.

When Ortena lost, Brown became worried. In fact, she was mentioned in a newspaper article after Ortena’s defeat. It’s important to note that Brown favored “Nicaragua’s ‘mixed’ economy, in which banks and institutions are state owned. She says that allows the government to distribute more wealth to the poor.”

The McMorris Rodgers campaign didn’t seem surprised by Brown’s campaign tactics.

“This just goes to show that Lisa Brown will go to any length to try and hide from her long and radical record. That’s not fair to the voters of Eastern Washington. Voters deserve to know about each candidate’s past and present beliefs, and Cathy is proud of her record of leadership and results for the people she represents,” Jared Powell, spokesman for Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, told Townhall.

The Lisa Brown campaign did not respond to Townhall’s request for comment.
