The powers that be are doing all they can to prevent the re-election of Donald Trump.
Everyone from establishment RINOs to the Democrat Party, the Fake News Media, and even Big Tech are getting in on the act.
But now Attorney General William Barr and the Trump administration are getting ready to do something about it.
The Department of Justice made the much anticipated announcement that it filed an antitrust case against Google alleging the company’s use of their monopoly powers to squash competitor ability to grow possible alternative platforms.
Word of Google manipulating their search algorithms first gained mainstream attention in 2020 after news broke that Google had allegedly manipulated its search algorithms to inhibit the right-wing news site Breitbart from showing up in users queries.
Fox News reports:
Lawmakers in the House and Senate on Tuesday welcomed the Justice Department’s (DOJ’s) move to file antitrust lawsuits against google that claims the tech behemoth used its power to preserve its monopoly via its search engine.
“Today’s lawsuit is the most important antitrust case in a generation,” Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., said in a statement. “Google and its fellow Big Tech monopolists exercise unprecedented power over the lives of ordinary Americans, controlling everything from the news we read to the security of our most personal information. And Google in particular has gathered and maintained that power through illegal means.”
Many conservatives feel this is just the first blow the Trump Administration has in store for Big Tech.
After social media giants Twitter and Facebook censored the New York Post’s story reporting on a trove of emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop raising many questions about his Ukrainian business dealings – and his father’s involvement in them – support swelled to revoke Big Tech’s carve out under section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, which grants Google and other Big Tech giants uncommon privileges as long as they remain a neutral content provider.
After Trump’s win in 2016, many on the Left claimed his victory was possible only in large part due to his ability to communicate directly with voters through various social media platforms.
Provoked and encouraged by Fake News Media outlets like CNN, Trump’s Presidency has seen social media companies censor conservatives to dominate and control the flow of information concerning the election and various other topics by repressing any and all stories about Democrats being cast in any kind of negative light and advancing misinformation and false narratives about the president spread by the Left.
But that might not be the case for long, especially if President Trump is re-elected in November.
