Tucker Carlson Highlights Google’s Ideological Control and Congressional Inaction…
CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 6/16/2020 | SUNDANCE

Posted on 06/16/2020 7:44:55 PM PDT by bitt

In his opening monologue today Fox host Tucker Carlson took on the subject of Google and their control over 70% of all on-line advertising revenue. Within the very accurate segment, Carlson noted that Utah Senator Mike Lee is in charge of the antitrust subcommittee and yet does nothing, absolutely nothing, to stop the authoritarian demonetization and deplatforming action carried out through the monopoly Google holds.

No single issue will do more damage to the reelection efforts of President Trump than allowing Google to carry out their political agenda. However, that accepted, that’s also the motive for the Senate and DOJ to do nothing. This is a good, honest and painful segment:

Google, US Senate, DoJ are major players in the Deep State Swamp; of course they’ve got Lee paralyzed and owned, lock, stock and barrel.

He didn’t just highlight Congress’ inaction he ALSO highlighted REPUBLICANS who fight against any reform to Big Tech.
AND, he noted these are the SAME REPUBLICAN Congressmen who are PUSHING against President Trump’s desired limitations to the numerous visa programs whereby cheap foreign labor competes against Americans in America.

Love how Tucker called out Mike Lee (said he hopes he gets voted out of his office), Doug Collins and Jim Sensenbrenner for defending Google from scrutiny and attacking those who wanted to investigate Google.

How much has Google donated to these three??

(RIP to Rep Sensenbrenner’s wife, Cheryl.)

Tucker Carlson speaks truth to power. Seems like a lonely voice but his message is having an effect. Would love to eavesdrop on what the Google commissars are saying in their conferences.

Are you saying these swamp creatures - who support Google - should get a pass, from Tucker, during an election year?

FYI....Mike Lee isn’t up for re-election until 2022.

Doug Collins is in a primary race w/incumbent Kelly Loeffler.

Shame on Doug Collins for NOT wanting any investigations of Google’s control over 70% of online ads/deplatforming people.

Are you okay w/Google deplatforming conservative websites? Dictating that they can/cannot receive certain comments, in their comments section?

....First, they came for The Federalist, and....I did not speak out, because I don’t comment on the Federalist....

Tucker is the only one telling the unvarnished truth.

Tucker has emerged as one of the best rhetoricians for the times.

Most people are unaware that Obama and Google were joined at the hip.

The Android Administration. Google's Remarkably Close Relationship With the Obama White House, in Two Charts

"Over the past seven years, Google has created a remarkable partnership with the Obama White House, providing expertise, services, advice, and personnel for vital government projects.

"Precisely how much influence this buys Google isn’t always clear. But consider that over in the European Union, Google is now facing two major antitrust charges for abusing its dominance in mobile operating systems and search. By contrast, in the U.S., a strong case to sanction Google was quashed by a presidentially appointed commission.'

The Intercept teamed up with Campaign for Accountability to present two revealing data sets from that forthcoming project: one on the number of White House meetings attended by Google representatives, and the second on the revolving door between Google and the government.

No other public company approaches this degree of intimacy with government. According to an analysis of White House data, the Google lobbyist with the most White House visits, Johanna Shelton, visited 128 times, far more often than lead representatives of the other top-lobbying companies — and more than twice as often, for instance, as Microsoft’s Fred Humphries or Comcast’s David Cohen. (The accompanying chart reflects 94 Shelton visits; it excludes large gatherings such as state dinners and White House tours.)

GOOGLE DOESN’T JUST lobby the White House for favors, but collaborates with officials, effectively serving as a sort of corporate extension of government operations in the digital era....

Google needs to be broken up, it needs to divest Android, and You Tube

I remember reading about all the Google visits to Osambo’s WH, and that they probably had an “unofficial” office in the West Wing. I think that the NSA and Google are “inextricably-joined” somewhere, too, along with other US Gov’t agencies. Scary stuff.

I also recall back in the late 80s & 90s, when we railed against MS and Netscape, but they were rank amateurs, compared to Google.

I believe this is the dumbest, and most false comment I've seen on FR all day. Congratulations.
