Google, World's Biggest Censor, Was Founded By The CIA

by Internet Freedom Monday, Jul. 09, 2018 at 5:25 PM

Google censors by totally erasing some search links, hiding others in the back pages, designing algorithms to generate more negative than positive links, placing old data first,

Google, World's Biggest Censor, Was Founded By The CIA

by Internet Freedom 09 Jul 2018

Your tax $ paid for the CIA's founding of Google through Sergey Brin at Stanford whom they made a billionaire. Google is the world's biggest censor.

googoo.jpg

Oceana, the World Socialist Web Site WSWS.org,

John Kerry (elected president in 2004, his

victory stolen by fraud from the Ohio Republican

Party) are some of the millions who have been

censored by Google in a variety of ways

such as

a. total elimination from search

b. being hidden in the last pages

c. link truncation (activists find

their links listed as 1% to 50%, e.g.

of what link list should contain

d. conspiracy of algorithms.

In Kerry's case, Google designed algorithms

which caused 14 negative websites for every

1 positive when someone searched his name.

e. listing several year old articles before current ones

Activists fear Google censorship will increase

with Trump's elimination of net neutrality

as he and Ajit Pai have given megamedia

corporations much more freedom to remove content.



Google Abuses: Worldwide Spying, Censorship, War Promotion, Spying On Children, Etc

Because of pawns of the plutocracy Trump and Ajit Pai of the FCC, net neutrality was tossed out, allowing search engines and internet companies to accelerate their censorship.

Recently Google removed the World Socialist Web Site wsws.org from its searched.



Brad Thor paraphrased: Google's partial listing of links is akin to a librarian who hides 95% of the library books.

Search & Destroy Why You Can’t Trust Google Inc. by Scott Cleland and Ira Brodsky

is one of many articles or books on the subject.

THE FOUNDER BY CIA FUNDED

Google was funded by you the taxpayer and founded by the CIA which made Sergey Brin at Stanford

and made him a billionaire. Google Earth cooperates with the US

military and in addition spies on people around the world, though the European Union has

filed lawsuits. One NYC poet said that Google Earth did not stop at building

walls but went through her window. Google Earth spies on the entire earth.

GOOGLE SPYING ON CHILDREN

GOOGLE SEARCH DATA MINING

Firefox and Yahoo search do not keep track of searches, but datamining Google does.

GOOGLE 117 CHARACTER LINKS

Why should your search query generate a 117 character link by Google? More datamining

GOOGLE EARTH PEEPING INTO PEOPLE"S WINDOWS

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Street_View_privacy_concerns

GOOGLE ALLEGED ALGORITHMS

Google's socalled algorithms in conspiracy with the Republican Party and Bush

called up 19 anti Kerry websites in 2004 to every 1 proKerry website.

In 2016, questions about Gary Johnson's poll numbers gave prime placement to early numbers, not those of the last quarter.

http://www.poynter.org/how-tos/digital-strategies/e-media-tidbits/25856//

PORNOGRAPHY

Google increases its ratings by splattering pornographic images in replies to serious searches.

Google not suitable for children under 12

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfect_10,_Inc._v._Google_Inc.

YOUTUBE

Google is slowly increasing time of commercials on YouTube from no ads to 5 second ads to 15 seconds to 30 seconds

A power grab by Google against Adobe (a much faster download system). Google is throwing its monopoly bound weight around in banning Adobe videos and screwing Bing, Yahoo and other search engines in the process.

Ask Google and their Youtube to stop teaching children and adults how to torture animals, such as the frying of fish while alive.

GOOGLE IS A PARAMILITARY ORGANIZATION which makes all of its Google Earth data available to the US military.

LINK TRUNCATION

One day after criticizing Google's partner Wikipedia on the internet for its

prowar bias, Google listing of links for one author already truncated to 70,000

links was further decimated to 4800. In general, antiwar, environment, prison

rights, minority rights, animal rights, socialist activists and poets find their

links are not fairly reflected, are hidden or eliminated altogether from lists.

Vegetarians and vegans who request vegetarian restaurant listings in a certain city might

find a steakhouse prominently featured as first in the list. Those who ask

for the number of casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan find 2009 or 2005 articles

listed first. There is a matrix of warmonger media which includes

Google, Wikipedia, and Facebook, a social network which eliminated 850,000

Boycott BP page

members. Facebook is the world's largest dataminer and privacy violater, as it usesfacial recognition software. Another reports 73,000 links... but only 9 pages of links accessible



Federal lawsuit on Google censorship of search results goes forward

http://blogs.wsj.com/law/2016/05/17/federal-lawsuit-alleging-google-impr/



LINK HIDING

When one asks for a particular website, such as for John Perkins' http://economichitman.com.... one is directed first to 1 to 3 or more Wikipedia and other sites.

YOUTUBE

Google is aggressively promoting mammal flesh on the front page of YouTube (May 2016)

YOUTUBE

Google ads when listening to music interrupt more than even the worst tv stations.

GOOGLE WASTES YOUR TIME

Google wastes your time, making you plough through all their product placement to find what you want

LAWSUITS

Gmail Lawsuit

http://www.webpronews.com/google-accused-of-violating-your-privacy-again

"Courthouse News reports that Google is being sued over Gmail as the plaintiffs

in the case, Brad Scott and Todd Harrington, accuse the search giant of

violating the California Invasion of Privacy Act. The law protects citizens'

communications from being intercepted by third parties without their

permission".

Google pays 22.5 million dollar fine

http://ftc.gov/opa/2012/08/google.shtm

Google is much more respectful to Chinese and Chinese Americans than many other nationalities... for those in comparable careers, Google lists as many as 1000 times the links for Chinese.

Google gives out of date columns. For instance when Republican Governor Kasich announced plans to cut Ohio library funding (but not funding for the hunters of ODNR), Google isntead directed searchers to a story about Gov Strickland, out of office. When searchers ask for information about India's strong response to the violation of strip searches in the US, Google gave precedence to 5 Time Warner CNN links which were Indophobic.



UNSOLICITED PORNOGRAPHY

People often find naked or scantily clad people gratuitously inserted into search pictures



GOOGLE TIME WASTING

Google could list 100 links per page instead of 10, but that would diminish the power of their profiteering on pay to play placement.

GOOGLE DELIBERATE DECEPTION

Those who typed in '"5 worst senators, Sierra Club" are directed to its 2012 and not its 2016 press releases.

WORSE THAN ANY TV STATION Google with some threads has an interrupting ad after each song

TWITTER VS GOOGLE

Twitter has the legal right to censor content because it is a corporation, but Google was begun with taxpayer money from the CIA and therefore is subject to lawsuit. Though Twitter has that right, it does not censor, but Google does, e.g.Indybay.org is the San Francisco and Bay area part of Indymedia.org It publishes needed articles censored on other sites. It's time for Google to follow Twitter's example and stop censoring.

If Emily Dickinson has 8 million links, why are only a small fraction of them or any other person available?

Google's decimation of the links of activists, hiding of articles by peace, environment, civil liberties, animal rights, spiritual and other activists, shilling for evil through the ads it runs, promotion of war, environmental desecration, unethical datamining, connection to the CIA from its inception, use of Google Earth technology to spy on people around the world, cooperation with the US military in illegal wars etc. are just a few of its lawbreaking activities.

Google had contracts with authors in creating Google Books. Those contracts did not include datamining users through requiring Gmail accounts nor that only Google would be able to cut and paste portions of text.

In late December of 2013, 40 million Target customers became the latest victims of datamining or hacking by Google, Facebook and other corporate thieves.

*

MONOPOLY

a. Google's attempted global monopoly of web links

b. Typing in "Pinocchio" in images, the first 100 were for warmonger ABC Disney's Pinocchio art.



FAST FOOD PROMOTION

Google gives prominent placement to fast food, butcher and drug company funded

Richard Berman's links.



DELAYS IN BRINGING UP LINKS IN PICTURE SEARCH

Google often delays in bringing up the source links in picture searches, so that one is left posting instead a 4 line Google link.





"Google will be bound not to seek court orders against competitors' use of

certain "standard-essential patents" it owns."

"Google has accepted certain limits on the terms it can require programmers to

accept in order to have their software access to Google's advertising database."

"Google has promised to allow website publishers to opt out of having their

content included in Google's specialized pages without opting out of having

their content listed in Google's main web search."

*

Google has been giving prominent placement to articles supporting the hasty executioner and sealer of court records Merrick Garland

30.12.2012 00:30

The following comment was placed on http://indymedia.org.uk

It was a reply to http://indymedia.org.uk/en/2012/12/505089.html

I am glad this issue has been raised. I have run an independent news website for

the past 12 years.

The site includes a free links listing service where visitors can post their

own links to their websites in a comprehensive links directory.

I stipulate that these links are free, are placed by their respective owners,

and all links automatically include the tag 'rel="nofollow"' as requested and

required by Google. Regardless, this has not stopped Google from threatening

people who place links on my pages.

Over the past year I have received emails from persons requesting removal of

their link from my pages as they had been 'penalised' by Google.

Google appears to consider that only Google or affiliate search engines are

'authorised' to maintain a directory of website listings and links and anyone

else attempting to provide a free links service is doing something wrong.

If there is someone out their with legal standing who would like to pursue this

illegal activity in a court of law then I have all the required evidence for

such a case.

Google, not content with 1 ad per youtube music experience, is interrupting sometimes every song on the track, much more than the greediest AM radio station.
