Scientific Study: Google Manipulates Votes for Dems in 2016 & 2018

A recent scientific study has shown that Google’s search engine during the 2016 presidential election manipulated “at least 2.6 million votes” in Hillary Clinton’s favor and gave Democrats “between 800,000 and 4.6 million more votes” than Republicans on Election Day 2018.

The leader of the study, Dr. Robert Epstein, a Democrat and Hillary supporter, testified about the vote manipulation Tuesday, July 16, 2019, before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution.

Epstein, senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, added that Google, Facebook and Twitter could use similar technology to shift 15 million votes in 2020 “without people’s knowledge and without leaving a paper trail for authorities to trace.”

“No private company should have either the right or the power to manipulate large populations without their knowledge,” he told the subcommittee.

He noted, “Google has likely been determining the outcomes of upwards of 25 percent of the national elections worldwide since at least 2015.”

Google has blocked access to or deleted videos on its YouTube website and often blocks access to millions of websites, he said.

Epstein suggested a “worldwide network of passive monitoring systems” to track such manipulation by Big Tech and urged Congress to declare Google’s search engine “a public commons, accessible to all.”

Democracy is “meaningless” without such controls, Epstein concluded (https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Epstein%20Testimony.pdf).

Google has denied the allegations in Epstein’s controlled scientific study.

The subcommittee Wednesday also accepted testimony from Dennis Prager, conservative author, radio host, and founder of Prager University, about YouTube restricting 59 or more educational and conservative videos produced by the university so that many families with children and most schools and libraries most likely would not be able to watch them.

One of the videos was a five-minute teaching video or vlog by Prager about the Ten Commandments in the Bible.

Google’s Vice President of Government Affairs Karan Bhatia said that vlog was probably restricted because Prager mentioned the commandment against murder several times.

Senator Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) also noted that the vlog features images of a Nazi swastika.

Prager responded by joking that he could perhaps re-release the vlog as “The Nine Commandments,” and added in a more serious vein that he actually denounced both the Nazi swastika and the Communist hammer and sickle in the video because he wants young people to know that these symbols and the people who’ve used them historically promote murder, and God condemns murder as evil.

Prager complained that YouTube’s restrictions on so many of Prager University’s videos is comparable to calling those videos pornographic or hateful.

“I promise you,” Prager told the subcommittee, “one day you will say, first they came after conservatives, and I said nothing, and then they came after me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”
