Old Woman Harassed by Antifa for Attending a Free Speech Event Has a Message for Them

Screenshot via this video.

By now, you’ve seen the video of the old woman attempting to cross the street to attend a lecture on free speech, only to be impeded by three members of Antifa who refuse to let her pass and began screaming accusations at her and her son that they were Nazis.

If you haven’t, here it is. It’s going to get your blood boiling as you watch the old woman attempt to be on her way, and Antifa literally putting their feet in the way of her walker.

Her son, David Turkoski, commented on the tactics of these Antifa punks who harassed the old woman as reported by my colleague Sister Toldja. According to him, their name is highly contradictory to their actions.

“It strikes me as contradictory that a group opposing Nazis or fascists would engage in these tactics. The suppression of opposition is a cornerstone of fascism, while it is our freedom to debate ideas that is a cornerstone of democracy,” said Turkoski.

It would appear that Turkoski’s mother also has something to say. It’s simple, and it’s a direct message to Antifa, the real fascists.

“Free speech is a cornerstone of our democracy, and can never and will never be denied,” she said.

The thing about Antifa is that they’re consistently doing fascistic things in order to achieve what they consider to be a Utopia. What’s completely lost on them is that this is exactly what every fascistic dictator has done throughout history. They oppress others and claim they’re doing it in the name of good.

However, there’s nothing good about screaming accusations of Nazism at people as you try to prevent them from attending an event about free speech. Not only is it disgusting, it’s fascistic.

In order to live in a society free of fascism, we need to make sure that the most basic of rights to free speech stay secured and well-practiced. Not allowing the freedom to express opinions and beliefs is the first step on a very slippery slope that leads to some of the worst governments humanity has seen.

This woman’s message was simple, but it is far more powerful than anything screamed at her by ridiculous people in masks who mistake bullying for heroism.

Colbert and Clinton Obsess Over Trump on Late Show, Chant “Lock Him Up” and Talk About Hitting Him in the Mouth

Westlake Legal Group Capture-1-620x375 Colbert and Clinton Obsess Over Trump on Late Show, Chant “Lock Him Up” and Talk About Hitting Him in the Mouth Ukraine Television Steven Colbert Politics late show Joe Biden hunter biden Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump Chelsea Clinton Allow Media Exception 2020

It was a night of “lock him up” chants and relentless “orange man bad” sentiment on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night as both Hillary and Chelsea Clinton appeared on the show.

The Clinton women are releasing a book called “The Book of Gutsy Women,” but before they could begin talking about it, Colbert was already lining up other important topics, such as how bad orange man actually is with all this Ukraine stuff. Clinton was ready to go with the Trump-bashing.

“So, here we are, and we have started an impeachment inquiry, which will look at the evidence, and I think that’s exactly what should be done,” Clinton said. “I believe strongly that this particular incident has had such a huge impact because we’ve known for a long time that he was a corrupt businessman who cheated people, and we’ve known that he and his campaign asked for aid from Russia. We’ve known that. But to see him in the Office of the President, putting his own personal and political interests ahead of the national security of our country, just pierced through whatever confusion or denial people had. And at that point, Speaker Pelosi rightly said this is something we have to investigate. And that’s what’s going on.”

Just a quick reminder, while Trump is no perfect angel, he’s been found innocent when it came to working with Russia, and the position of the left about the phone call to a Ukrainian president has been summed up best by Sen. Lindsey Graham when he called it “insane.”

Colbert made the wild claim that, while he was never a fan of impeachment and would rather rely on the ballot box, Trump is making the ballot box no good. Clinton agreed, saying the founders put impeachment in the rules for people like Trump.

Oddly enough — and no one can fathom why — neither Joe or Hunter Biden’s involvement in this entire affair was brought up. Colbert did, however, ask Chelsea how it feels to have Trump so obsessed with attacking her mother, and asking if she wanted to “slap his mouth.”

Chelsea said she does feel the need to protect her because of what she’s seen at Trump’s rallies.

The interview goes on like this for some time, with Colbert bringing up one leftist media talking about after another. If they had wheeled out a punching bag with Trump’s face on it, it would have saved a lot of time.

For some people who think Trump is obsessed with Clinton, they sure seem obsessed with Trump.

Interestingly enough, having Clinton on put Colbert ahead of the other two late-night hosts in terms of ratings. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon’s numbers combined equaled out to Colbert’s ratings:

In late night, an appearance by Hillary and Chelsea Clinton gave CBS’ Late Show With Stephen Colbert its highest-ever overnight ratings for a Monday show. It drew a 3.2 household rating in metered markets, equaling the combined ratings for Jimmy Kimmel Live (1.7) and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (1.5).

Clinton’s sudden boost in eyes may have a lot to do with rumors floating around that she may announce her candidacy for the 2020 Democratic primary for a second shot at Trump.

Leftist Comedian Bill Maher Calls for the Rejection of Radical Fringe Democrats, Bashes PC Culture

Westlake Legal Group f493b821-3180-49f9-a4dd-7ab36a1d965b-620x317 Leftist Comedian Bill Maher Calls for the Rejection of Radical Fringe Democrats, Bashes PC Culture Woke Crowd Social Justice SJWs Politics political correctness PC Culture Front Page Stories democrats Culture comedy Bill Maher Allow Media Exception

Leftist comedian and show host Bill Maher is not happy about the radicals that have taken over the Democratic party, and like other leftists who have grown sick of it, Maher is speaking out against them.

New York Times Magazine interviewed Maher and the first question posed to him was why he tends to attack the left as much as he does the right. Maher’s response wasn’t kind to the PC culture police who have effectively become giant babies:

It’s hard to answer that question without sounding self-serving. I will say this: Our studio audience is not representative of liberals across the country. Your paper and The Atlantic had in the last year saying that 80 percent of Americans think this politically correct BS has gone too far. But the people on Twitter are the people who control the media a lot. They’re the millennials who probably grew up with helicopter parents who afforded them a sense of entitlement. They are certainly more fragile than previous generations. Trigger warnings. Safe spaces. Crying rooms. Microaggressions. That crowd feels like anything that upsets their tender sensibilities is completely out of line.

Maher went on to suggest that if the Democrats want to win another election, then the correct way to deal with this “ultrawoke” crowd is to push them out of the party.

“The most important thing that the Democrats can do to win the next election is to broom this element out of their party and stand up to the Twitter mob and the ultrawoke,” said Maher.

The comedian went on to describe the SJW crowd with accuracy, and he wasn’t kind:

They don’t do anything. They’re pointing at other people who are somehow falling short of their standards, which could have changed three weeks ago. They’re constantly moving the goalposts so they can go, “Gotcha!” For example, when I was growing up, the most liberal thing you could do is not see color. Well, that’s wrong now. You see color, always, so you can register your white privilege. But I grew up in the Martin Luther King era: Judge by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. I still think that’s the best way to do it. Not see it.

Maher’s take on PC culture is one that seems to be shared by many comedians, and it’s no wonder. The outrage mobs that have sprung up around this “woke” philosophy have sunk careers and ruined comedy as a general rule. Society needs comedy. It’s one of the best disinfectants we have against the ridiculousness of people taking things too seriously to the point of creating sacred cows.

Dave Chappell and Bill Burr recently released comedy specials that more or less dared the SJW crowd to get angry with them. It worked, and the resulting support from the general public showed that the woke crowd may be loud, but they’re not numerous.

Recently, Joker director  Todd Phillips also took a moment to bash the “woke” crowd in an interview with Vanity Fair.

(READ: “Joker” Director Todd Phillips Smacks Social Justice Warriors And Their PC Culture)

“Go try to be funny nowadays with this woke culture,” said Phillips. “There were articles written about why comedies don’t work anymore—I’ll tell you why, because all the f***ing funny guys are like, ‘F**k this shit, because I don’t want to offend you.’ It’s hard to argue with 30 million people on Twitter. You just can’t do it, right? So you just go, ‘I’m out.’”

Perhaps we’re approaching a point where the hold of SJWs on our society is going to break. Rest assured, if and when it happens, society will become a lot less stressful.

VA Police Officer Suspended After Turning Illegal Alien Over To ICE: Police Chief Says Officer Had ‘Lapse in Judgement’

Westlake Legal Group ice-immigration-620x507 VA Police Officer Suspended After Turning Illegal Alien Over To ICE: Police Chief Says Officer Had ‘Lapse in Judgement’ political correctness immigration Ice Front Page Stories Featured Story Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler Jr. democrats Allow Media Exception

 

Following a September 21st traffic accident in Alexandria, VA, a police officer discovered one of the drivers did not have a state driver’s license. He ran a check with the Virginia DMV which showed this individual had “failed to appear for a deportation hearing. The officer verified the warrant and alerted officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). An ICE agent was close by and arrived at the scene. The officer cited the driver for not having a driver’s license and turned him over to the federal agent.”

It turns out that in 2007, Fairfax County had enacted a policy which “prohibits officers from confirming a person’s immigration status and detaining them solely based on civil violations of immigration law.”

After spending three hours in police custody, the driver was released and issued an ankle monitor.

Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler Jr. said, “This is an unfortunate issue where the officer was confused. We have trained on this issue a lot. This is the first time we’ve had a lapse in judgment, and the officer is being punished.”

Roessler added, “Our county is one of the most diverse counties in the nation and no one should have the perception that FCPD is acting as a civil immigration agent for ICE.”

Roessler posted a statement about this incident on the Fairfax County Police Department website. He describes the situation and displayed the county’s policy.

Since 2007, the FCPD General Order 601-Arrest procedures (VIII c. 5. e.) is very clear on this matter:

If the response reads “OUTSTANDING ADMINISTRATIVE WARRANT OF REMOVAL” and the individual is not in custody or being taken into custody for any other violation of law, officers shall not confirm the hit through LESC and shall not take the individual into custody based solely upon the IVF hit. The majority of such administrative warrants represent civil violations of immigration law.

In addition, training at our Academy, as clearly outlined in lesson plans, as well as in-service training reinforces to our personnel that we do not enforce nor detain for administrative warrants and we have no authority to enforce federal law. We have also been working closely with community members and advocates to review our General Orders in this regard.

As a matter of full transparency to our community – our police officer violated our longstanding policy and deprived a person of their freedom, which is unacceptable. We have been informed by ICE that the driver was released after three hours and issued an ankle monitor. When I learned of this event, I directed an immediate internal investigation to look at all factors in this matter to ensure that all are held accountable for this violation. Our county is one of the most diverse counties in the nation and no one should have the perception that FCPD is acting as a civil immigration agent for ICE. This matter damages our reputation and the longstanding policy that I have stated many times that our officers shall not act as immigration agents. The officer involved in this event has been relieved of all law enforcement duties pending the outcome of this investigation. It is my duty to enforce our FCPD – and Fairfax County – policies and hold all accountable for their actions.

Forget purple. Virginia has already turned blue.

Newly Obtained Documents Shred the Media’s False Narrative on Ukrainian Interference in 2016 Election

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-02-at-4.09.13-AM-620x255 Newly Obtained Documents Shred the Media’s False Narrative on Ukrainian Interference in 2016 Election Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin Mainstream Media Liberal Elitism katy tur John Solomon Joe Biden Impeachment of President Trump hunter biden Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story fake news elections donald trump democrats corruption collusion Campaigns Allow Media Exception Alexandra Chalupa Abuse of Power 2020

Photo Credit: Screen shot from Fox News’ “Hannity.” October 1, 2019 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYptoqAmt2A

 

Last week, The Hill’s John Solomon reported he had obtained 450 pages of new documents related to former Vice President Joe Biden’s Ukraine story and Ukrainian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Solomon is a long-time investigative journalist with an extensive network of connections inside the Washington intelligence community. Clearly, it will take time to pour through such a vast quantity of material. Accordingly, Solomon will be presenting several documents at a time. Last night, he appeared on “Hannity” to share the first two, both of which discredit the false narratives being peddled by the left. Solomon reports:

There is a media narrative that is false…MSNBC’s Katy Tur and many others over the weekend said there is no evidence that the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington was ever asked to help the Democratic National Committee. In fact, on NBC News, Katy Tur called that claim Russian propaganda. Now, you showed the Politico article.

I have a statement from the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, on the record, from their sitting ambassador in Washington, that in fact, Alexandra Chalupa, the DNC contractor, came to the Ukrainian Embassy in spring 2016 and asked for help in finding dirt on Donald Trump in hopes of staging a Congressional hearing to hurt Donald Trump in the fall election of 2016. That is the Ukraine Embassy’s on the record statement.

In addition, they state that Miss Chalupa also asked for the Ukraine president to visit the United States and spend time with an investigative reporter trying to turn up dirt on Donald Trump and Paul Manafort.

What did the Embassy do? They said they recognized this request for what it was – an improper effort to influence the election and they refused to cooperate with Miss Chalupa. That’s a very important confirmation of something that the rest of the media is calling a tin foil hat conspiracy. It’s on the record. It’s in Politico. It’s in the Embassy’s own words.

The second document Solomon presents is the deposition of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. He is the prosecutor whom Biden demanded be fired in March 2016. Biden famously threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid to the country unless Shokin was fired in the next six hours. Shokin had been investigating Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, at the time and was planning to interview Hunter Biden about his business dealings with the company as part of his probe. For obvious reasons, Biden insists he called for Shokin’s firing because he was corrupt. Solomon explains:

Mr. Shokin says in his sworn deposition, under the penalty of perjury, under oath, that in fact, he was fired because he refused to stand down in the Burisma investigation. That is the only reason he was fired. He was told that by Ukraine’s President [Petro Poroshenko].

That is a complete contradiction of everything Joe Biden has said.

Solomon will appear again on “Hannity” tonight to “go through 8-10 of the biggest lies and show people the proof moment by moment, step by step.” I will post on this new information tomorrow morning.

Note: The Politico article Solomon refers to is an in-depth, investigative piece written by Kenneth Vogel and David Stern in January 2017. It is a well-researched overview of Ukraine’s interference in our election. It covers the role of Alexandra Chalupa whose name you will likely hear frequently as this story unfolds. It is entitled, “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire.” Here is the link.

Federal Funds ALWAYS Have Strings Attached

Westlake Legal Group puppet-620x413 Federal Funds ALWAYS Have Strings Attached Uncategorized Taxation state's rights state sovereignty republicans Politics Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception
Foreign Aid isn’t the only instance of Federal funds having strings attached. As I noted previously, one of the reasons we give monetary and other forms of aid to other countries, is so that we can establish a “string” to pull on should we need to exert some influence on their behavior.

However, our Foreign Policy isn’t the only arena in which the Federal government uses this technique. Closer to home, Federally funded, stand alone, state and local programs , along with joint, Federal-State programs, are all subject to Federal strings. This is how the Federal government gets around state sovereignty issues. For now at least, there are still some things the Federal government may not force states to do. These funds give the Feds leverage to “encourage” cooperation, often resulting in severe degradation of state sovereignty and sometimes civil rights.

Once a state or locality has been the recipient of Federal dollars for any length of time, it grows dependent upon those dollars. Government entities become so dependent, they often “bet on the come,” by including Federal funds in their forward budget projections. If for some reason those funds are withheld, budgetary havoc ensues. The Federal government and its legions of unelected bureaucrats know this. Every dollar that the state or local government gets back (The Feds can’t give what they first don’t take away) from the Feds, comes with specified and implied constraints.

The specified constraints aren’t usually the problem. For example, Federal highways built and maintained with joint State-Federal dollars must meet certain specifications…materials, construction methods and the like. These are clearly related to quality and hopefully lead to best results on any given project.

However, some Federal strings have little relation to the project being funded and are solely about Federal control. Some examples regarding Federal Highway Funds were enforcement of the national 55 MPH speed limit, national motorcycle helmet law and raising the drinking age to 21.

Some other examples hit closer to home and have led to some egregious civil rights violations and the destruction of lives. Title IX U.S. Code involves equal treatment of women in Education. During the Obama administration, his Department of Education rewrote Federal guidance regarding the handling of ”sexual assault” cases. These new regs came with thinly veiled threats to withhold federal funding from Universities and Public School districts for failure to comply with these new regulations.

As has been determined by numerous court cases, these new regulations turned presumption of innocence on its head. Male students could be charged and “convicted” in a School run process outside the criminal justice system, without being able to see the evidence against them or in many cases, unable to confront their accusers. Several students have been later proven in civil court to have been wrongly “convicted” and expelled…but not before their reputations were ruined—all to exert Federal control and promote a leftist agenda. This is dangerous to our Republic.

Where do conservative, liberty loving states and locales go next? The answer is simple, but tough. The best way to put some limits on this form of Federal control, is to limit dependence on Federal funding. Every Federal dollar comes with strings attached. Some visible, most hidden. It’s tough, but in the long run, states and localities that run their own tight budgetary ship, will be rewarded. Such states will of course attract highly motivated, skilled workers. Just make sure they don’t bring their Blue State attitudes with them.

Liz Cheney to Pelosi: How Did You Get to See Full Ukraine Call Transcript Before White House Authorized Release?

Westlake Legal Group LizCheneyFaceTheNation-620x317 Liz Cheney to Pelosi: How Did You Get to See Full Ukraine Call Transcript Before White House Authorized Release? Wyoming washington D.C. Social Media republicans Politics North Carolina Nancy Pelosi Media Liz Cheney Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Georgia Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Doug Collins donald trump democrats Culture Congress California Allow Media Exception 60 Minutes

There are some pretty fishy things going on with respect to the Ukraine call transcript, the whistleblower complaint itself, and the how Democrats are conducting the impeachment process – and GOP leaders are demanding answers.

This morning, I wrote about how Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, was on Fox News Monday raising questions about what House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) knew about the whistleblower complaint and when he knew it. Here’s what he told Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade (bolded emphasis added):

Collins: “If you go back, actually the whistleblower complaint was on August 14th I believe. On August the 28th, go back and look at Adam Schiff who is now heading the ramrod investigation. He actually put a tweet out saying basically what the whistleblower complaint said. This is a month ahead of time. I’m beginning to wonder if there was not more communication here.

Collins also said there is a troubling reason why Pelosi has not called for a House vote on a formal impeachment inquiry:

And this is why I’ve said this week that the Speaker abused her power … she said we’re starting the impeachment inquiry and she gave it to her buddy Adam Schiff who has been dishonest with the American people from the get-go on Russia. And why that is important for everybody in this country to know is a [true] impeachment inquiry would actually afford due process, it would make sure both sides were heard. It would make sure the President and the minority have the rights that are not present in the hearings currently.

Kilmeade pointed out something else during the segment about how Pelosi made “a slip” in an interview she did with 60 Minutes on Sunday about when she read the Ukraine call transcript. Here’s what he said:

Kilmeade: “Nancy Pelosi on 60 Minutes last night was asked ‘Did the President call you?’ She said ‘yes, he called me.’ [This was] before she came out with the impeachment inquiry. [Trump said] ‘the letter was perfect. We’re gonna release the transcript, the call was perfect.’ And she said to him, ‘I knew what was in the letter.’ Then she paused and said ‘it was in the public domain.’ Number one, it was not in the public domain, and the transcript had not been released yet. How could she possibly know?”

Collins isn’t the only GOP leader in the House raising alarm bells about what Democrats knew and when they knew it.

Rep. Liz Cheney (WY), who is the GOP Conference Chair, tweeted out a clip of the Pelosi interview on Monday and stated “This is starting to seem like a political set up”:

Fred Fleitz, who has extensive experience working for various intelligence agencies including the CIA NSC, and DIA, speculated last week that the whistleblower might have had “outside help” writing the actual complaint itself – either from a member of Congress or staff:

I am very familiar with transcripts of presidential phone calls since I edited and processed dozens of them when I worked for the NSC. I also know a lot about intelligence whistleblowers from my time with the CIA.

My suspicions grew this morning when I saw the declassified whistleblowing complaint. It appears to be written by a law professor and includes legal references and detailed footnotes. It also has an unusual legalistic reference on how this complaint should be classified.

From my experience, such an extremely polished whistleblowing complaint is unheard of. This document looks as if this leaker had outside help, possibly from congressional members or staff.

He also wrote that it was “more than a coincidence” that a Schiff tweet from late August virtually mirrored the whistleblower complaint.

You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to see shades of the Russia collusion hoax playing out all over again. This whole thing stinks.

Bill Maher Blasts Cancel Culture: SJW’s Don’t Want Justice. They Want Scalps

They Want Scalps woke Uncategorized Social Justice Real Time Politics Media Front Page Stories freedom of speech Free Speech democrats Culture Bill Maher Allow Media Exception 1st amendment

 

 

In a recent interview with The New York Times Magazine, Real Time host Bill Maher spoke out on the increasing intensity of cancel culture.

To Bill — and, possibly, you — this present generation is weak.

But here’s an oddity: a group known for their fragility has become a muscled monster.

As Bill sees it, a coddled bunch trying to protect their delicate feelings is, to a great degree, controlling the media:

“[The NYT] and The Atlantic had long articles in the last year saying that 80 percent of Americans think this politically correct BS has gone too far. But the people on Twitter are the people who control the media a lot. They’re the millennials who probably grew up with helicopter parents who afforded them a sense of entitlement. They are certainly more fragile than previous generations. Trigger warnings. Safe spaces. Crying rooms. Microaggressions. That crowd feels like anything that upsets their tender sensibilities is completely out of line.”

And Bill said the Democratic Party needs to prune said softies away in order to have a shot at 2020:

“The most important thing that the Democrats can do to win the next election is to broom this element out of their party and stand up to the Twitter mob and the ultrawoke.”

Bill is certainly a liberal, but the changing-by-the-minute-mores on the left side of the aisle have delivered, between Maher and conservatives, something that wasn’t likely to occur: common ground.

How ya like these apples:

“They’re pointing at other people who are somehow falling short of their standards, which could have changed three weeks ago. They’re constantly moving the goalposts so they can go, ‘Gotcha!’ For example, when I was growing up, the most liberal thing you could do is not see color. Well, that’s wrong now. You see color, always, so you can register your white privilege. But I grew up in the Martin Luther King era: Judge by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. I still think that’s the best way to do it. Not see it.”

Here’s another bit o’ goodness:

“If someone walks in the room, after a minute, I should not be thinking about color. And I am not. That’s how I have always been. I have actual black friends. I don’t think they want me to be always thinking: ‘Black person. Black person. I’m talking to a black person.’”

YES!

The controversial TV man also apologized:

“Look, I tried to drive a stake through political correctness in the ’90s. I obviously failed dismally. It’s worse than ever.”

I wrote Monday that tensions seem ever-greater in our society; we need civility (here).

And recently, I suggested “we’d all be a lot better off if less time was spent trying to prevent speech and more investment was made in listening” (here).

Bill seems to agree. The SJW’s are out for blood, not a round of “Kumbaya”:

“The politically correct people are not concerned about social justice. They care about putting scalps on the wall. I don’t see a lot of desire for people to talk to each other, to accept that, ‘O.K., this person doesn’t agree with me on a lot of stuff, but I don’t have to think he’s a monster.’ We want to beat our chests and vanquish the other side. Compromise seems like a dead concept.”

The left side of politics was once arm-in-arm with the free speech movement, and an embrace of individualism. Not so much anymore.

Here’s how Bill summed it up:

“The difference is that liberals protect people, and P.C. people protect feelings.”

Proof that YouTube Is Censoring Non-Mainstream Conservative Content Surfaces

We all know it’s happening. Social media suppresses conservative voices, articles, and videos all the time.

One person in particular who has been censored both overtly and behind the scenes is Steven Crowder, who claimed that his content was being censored. It turned out that he was right, and that his videos would not pop up if you searched for them by name.

They would continuously show themselves in overseas countries, but in America, they were being censored. Crowder created a video to show first-hand screenshots.

As Crowder says in the video, this happening in the United States, where we celebrate free speech, has some very dark implications.

The problem is that it doesn’t end there.

Paul Joseph Watson of Summit News also did an experiment and searched for a video specifically by name called “Hillary Clinton lying for 13 minutes straight.” The video features Clinton caught telling lies about her political positions as you can see.

Entering the name of the video directly into YouTube’s search function yields many results, but not this video as you Watson shows in a screenshot.

I recreated the search myself and got the same exact result.

Meaning that YouTube is actively censoring this video about Clinton, and one that would be damning to her if she were to ever run again, which is a rumor that is floating around at this time. In its place are mainstream sources for videos giving commentary and one promotional video by Clinton herself.

While I wouldn’t call all the videos presented flattering to Clinton (with the obvious exception of one) I wouldn’t exactly call them damaging, unlike the one showing her blatantly lying is.

Google’s attempting to protect and promote Clinton has not been anything new. In fact, as a pro-Clinton author detailed, the relationship between Google and Hillary, and noted that it goes much deeper than support from Google employees for her campaign as he detailed in a series of tweets:

Now, switching to Hillary Clinton: This is going to hurt me to write, because I & my whole extended family have been strong supporters of the Clintons for decades. I have a framed, signed letter from Bill on the wall near my desk. But Hillary should be ashamed of herself.

Hillary has long depended on Google for both money & votes. Her largest donor in 2016 was Alphabet/Google. Her Chief Technology Officer during the campaign was Stephanie Hannon, a former Google exec. And then there’s Eric Schmidt, longtime head of Google …

A leaked email showed that in 2014 Google’s Eric Schmidt offered to run Hillary’s tech campaign (see pic). In 2015, Schmidt in fact funded The Groundwork, a highly secretive tech company, the sole purpose of which was to put Clinton into office.

About 96% of 2016 campaign donations from Google employees went to Hillary. And Elan Kriegel, Hillary’s Chief Analytics Officer, credits his 2012 tech team, informally supervised by Eric Schmidt, for half of Obama’s win margin: nearly 2.5 million votes.

Even if Clinton doesn’t run, what we have here is pretty solid evidence that Google is willing to rig searches in order to better benefit a Democratic candidate.
