"Psychologist and Google critic Robert Epstein says his research shows that manipulation of search algorithms to favor a given candidate could easily shift people’s voting intentions, with few noticing the bias. He suspects such manipulation in searches for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign."
The cache of documents, some of which may include correspondence between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and company executives, stem from a lawsuit in California that outlines a litany of allegations against Facebook. Among them: claims about the company's alleged disregard for user privacy, and the claim that Zuckerberg devised a plan that forced Facebook's rivals, or potential rivals, out of business.

If so, click on Gibiru .. the search engine you’ve been looking for.
According to their website, “Gibiru is the preferred Search Engine for Patriots.”
They claim their Search results are sourced from a modified Google algorithm, so users are able to query the information they seek without worrying about Google’s tracking activities.
Because Gibiru doesn’t install tracking cookies on your computer they purport to be faster than “NSA Search Engines.”

On Google, I just typed in “top races Republican,” and the word “races” got a squiggly underline suggesting I had misspelled the word. Beneath it ran Google’s helpful correction: “top racist Republican.” With “top races Democrat,” no such veering into the gutter. No squiggly line. The word “racist” did not insinuate itself into my field of vision. Oh, and before I completed the phrase, with just “top races Democra,” two lines below ran the following little hint: “best Democratic races to donate to.” Huh? Who said anything about donating? I’ve never donated to a political candidate in my life, and if I did, I wouldn’t donate to Democrats. Again, no parallel on the Republican side. No steering me to fundraisers
The documentary The Creepy Line takes its name from a shockingly unguarded remark by the former Google CEO Eric Schmidt. He is smiling and relaxed in a conference as he explains that Google has (had?) a nickname for excessive invasiveness. “Google policy on a lot of these things,” Schmidt says, “is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”
How is that going so far? The Creepy Line, a terrifying and important 80-minute documentary now streaming on Amazon Prime, is an attempt to answer that question.
The film delves into some of the troubling habits of our two Internet masters, Facebook and especially Google. An early segment of the film, produced and partly narrated by the journalist Peter Schweizer, illustrates how your search history gives Google an enormous, permanent cache of information about you, everything from what things you like to buy to what you like in bed. Naturally Google uses the data mainly to fine-tune ad sales. But what else might they do with it? Who knows?
Google, noticing that people would leave the search engine to roam the Internet, came up with a browser, Chrome. Now everything you do online through Chrome is logged by Google. But Google wants to know what you’re doing even when you’re not online. Hence: Android. As soon as you log on, Android uploads a complete picture of everywhere your phone has been that day.
“These are all free services but obviously they’re not,” notes professor Jordan Peterson, another talking head in the doc. It’s a surveillance business model. Google Maps, Google Docs, Gmail . . . Google knows more about you than your spouse does.

"The judges on the Ninth Circuit and in other jurisdictions who spin spurious theories to deny the president the authority clearly given by legislation and the Constitution—authority that other presidents have exercised without comment or rebuke—are misguided and should be corrected."
Who gets it right, President Donald Trump or Chief Justice John Roberts? The president earlier this week attacked “Obama judges,” whom he believes are erroneously interpreting the law and the Constitution to frustrate his administration’s policy initiatives. The chief justice told the Associated Press on Wednesday there is no such partisan thing.
The chief justice, like his great predecessor John Marshall, wants his court to be above politics. Perhaps Roberts believes that in rebutting the president’s attack on judges who are using politics rather than the law to make decisions, he will protect the judiciary from the charge that it is partisan, and thus help to preserve the noble American ideal that ours is a government of laws, not men.
But it is the president, not the chief justice, who is most faithful to our tradition in this case. For judges to make law, to depart from precedent and from original understanding—in other words, to ignore the strictures of the Constitution and our statutes—is to deprive us of self-government.

Our new governor is a former JAG officer and federal prosecutor. Our new attorney general is Ashley Moody, a former judge for the 13th Judicial Circuit Court in Florida.
There are large Republican majorities in both houses of the legislature. In addition, Governor DeSantis will appoint 3 new judges to the FL. Supreme Court on Jan 8, giving it a 6-1 conservative majority.
So with all the power of the state, executive - legislative - judicial, the solutions to Florida's mechanical and procedural voting problems are at hand. But the Democrat criminality aspect must also be dealt with.
Brenda Snipes in Broward Co. and Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher must be investigated, indicted, given a fair trial and then put in prison. Election Fraud is a felony.
WCTV – Democrats conceded in the races for U.S. Senate and governor, but not before Florida asked federal authorities to investigate possible election fraud conducted by the party.
The U.S. Department of Justice declined, but the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Office of Statewide Prosecution say they have an opened a criminal investigation into the allegations.
Evidence reported to the Department of State suggests a possible effort by Democrats to have voters fix ballots after the state’s deadline in at least four counties.

Tijuana officials said late Monday they had arrested 34 caravan members for drug possession, public intoxication, disturbing the peace and resisting police, and they would be deported to their home countries.

"More than 500 criminals are traveling with the migrant caravan that’s massed on the other side of a San Diego border crossing, homeland security officials said Monday afternoon. The revelation was made during a conference call with reporters, with officials asserting that "most of the caravan members are not women and children". They claimed the group is mostly made up of single adult or teen males and that the women and children have been pushed to the front of the line in a bid to garner sympathetic media coverage.
Homeland Security officials say there are currently 6,000 people in Tijuana waiting to be processed at the San Ysidro border crossing, with more on the way."

"The government of Mexico must be evaluating the possibilities of severe civil unrest unless they do something different; it is obvious the position of President Trump will remain unchanged.
Additionally, and importantly, Democrats realize they are on the wrong side of this issue as the majority of Americans -including their own constituents- do not want to see a mass influx of economic migrants. The shift toward silence from the media narrative engineers is transparent.
President Trump has a quiver full of consequential economic arrows that can be used to leverage Mexico into action. There is a decent possibility President Trump can utilize the growing crisis at the border to change the perspectives within Washington DC. "

With 84 of his judges already confirmed — 29 of them at the appellate level, a record number for the first two years of a presidential administration — Trump appointees make up one-sixth of the active judges on the federal bench. Transforming the federal bench is serious business for conservatives.
“This White House has made the judiciary a priority,” said Carrie Severino of Judicial Crisis Network, a right-leading advocacy group. “If they can’t pass legislation, liberals have used the courts to rewrite the laws,” she said. “It took a while for conservatives to realize what was happening and to push back.”
Republican senators plan to speed the latest batch of confirmations through its lame-duck session after this week’s Thanksgiving recess. And they have no intention of slowing the conga line in the new Congress, says Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), who is likely to succeed Grassley in January.
“If I’m chairman next year, we are going to do judges, judges, and more judges,” Graham said Wednesday. At least 86 more Trump-nominated judicial candidates are waiting to be confirmed.

“Campaigns are meant to be vigorously debated contests of ideas and competing visions for the future. The campaign for governor achieved this objective as evidenced by historic voter turnout from people of all parties across our state.
But campaigns of ideas must give way to governing and bringing people together to secure Florida’s future. With the campaign now over, that’s where all of my focus will be.
And, to this end, I invite Mayor Gillum to join me in the days ahead in a conversation about the future of our great state. We have both traveled the state and met Floridians from all walks of life. Sharing these experiences will, I believe, help us unite our state and build toward unity on behalf of the people of Florida.”
