A few days after the 2016 election, at an internal meeting later leaked to Breitbart News, top Google executives, including Sundar Pichai, Sergey Brin, and Kent Walker, lamented President Trumps victory, comparing Trump voters to extremists and discussing their desire to make Trumps election and the populist movement a blip in history.
True to their word, four years later, Google is deliberately working to interfere with the reelection of Trump in 2020.

Google Has Been Purging Breitbart Content from Search Results Since the 2016 Election
Search visibility is a key industry measure of how findable a publishers content is in Google search. New data shows that Google has suppressed Breitbarts search visibility by 99.7 percent since 2016.
On April 4, 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top ten search positions (i.e., on the first page of Google search results) for 355 key search terms; but now, as of July 20, 2020, Breitbart ranks in the top ten search positions for only one search term. And, on April 4, 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top 100 search positions for 16,820 key search terms; but now, as of July 20, 2020, Breitbart ranks in the top ten search positions for only 55 search terms.
Moreover, organic Google search traffic to Breitbart (measured by unique visitors) is down 63 percent when comparing the first half of 2016 with the first half of 2020.

Silicon Valley has been assimilated by the Leftist Collective. Trust it as much as you do the Marxist Media.
I am in the process of disengaging completely from Google. I have moved to the Brave Browser, use the ASK and DuckDuckGo search engines, and will transition to another email address, away from Gmail, just as soon as I have time to sort out my contacts and make sure everyone gets the word.
I tried and it was first up on google.
I'd be surprised if Breitbart doesn't have its own search engine on its website.
Google (and Facebook Ana Twitter) depends est!
Break them up.
Our health ins only works on chrome browser. I think there is one more site we need.
