One could say that the American Redoubt was “founded” when Montana became a State of these United States of America on November 8, 1889, just 1 year before Idaho and Wyoming.

For those who are more attached to the East Coast and can't easily migrate to the American Redoubt in the Intermountain-West, we recommend the blog of the inspirational M.D. Creekmore who posted Joel M.

“As a relocation specialist and designer, I found safe retreat locations and helped clients develop high security homes in every state of the union and you can too. The concept that anyone caught East of the Mississippi River is doomed is only partially valid and highly exaggerated. You can achieve a significantly higher level of safety going beyond the Appalachians to the high plateau regions of Tennessee and Kentucky. This massive and relatively unpopulated area is called the Cumberland Plateau—most of which falls within the state of Tennessee.” Joel M.

Googlag - The Gulag Archipelago of Big Tech Google, Alphabet and other Giant Silicon Valley Corporations

The biggest winners in the burgeoning Surveillance State of inseparably allied Big Tech/Big Government big data privacy mining are the autistic authoritarian busybodyelitists” of Googlag-Facebook-Twitter-Amazon-Microsoft-Apple.

Google - also know as Googlag (as in Gulag and Gulag Archipelago) due to their draconian authoritarian censorship of those who do not conform to the GroupThink propaganda of Big Tech

“Don't Be Evil!”

Snippet from Wikipedia: Gulag

The Gulag (, UK also ; Russian: ГУЛаг, romanized: GULag, [ɡʊˈlak] (listen), acronym of Main Administration of Camps) was the government agency in charge of the Soviet forced-labour camp system set up under Vladimir Lenin and reached its peak during Joseph Stalin's rule from the 1930s to the early 1950s. English-language speakers also use the word gulag to refer to any forced-labour camp in the Soviet Union, including camps which existed in post-Stalin times. The camps housed a wide range of convicts, from petty criminals to political prisoners. Large numbers were convicted by simplified procedures, such as by NKVD troikas or by other instruments of extrajudicial punishment. The Gulag is recognised by many as a major instrument of political repression in the Soviet Union.

The agency was first administered by the GPU, later by the NKVD and in the final years by the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD). The Solovki prison camp, the first corrective labor camp constructed after the revolution, was established in 1918 and legalised by a decree "On the creation of the forced-labour camps" on April 15, 1919. The internment system grew rapidly, reaching a population of 100,000 in the 1920s. According to Nicolas Werth, author of The Black Book of Communism, the yearly mortality rate in the Soviet concentration camps strongly varied, reaching 5% (1933) and 20% (1942–1943) while dropping considerably in the post-war years (about 1 to 3% per year at the beginning of the 1950s). The emergent consensus among scholars who utilize official archival data is that of the 18 million who were sent to the Gulag from 1930 to 1953, roughly 1.5 to 1.7 million perished there or as a result of their detention. However, some historians question the reliability of such data and instead rely heavily on literary sources that come to higher estimations. Archival researchers have found "no plan of destruction" of the gulag population and no statement of official intent to kill them, and prisoner releases vastly exceeded the number of deaths in the Gulag.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, who survived eight years of Gulag incarceration, gave the term its international repute with the publication of The Gulag Archipelago in 1973. The author likened the scattered camps to "a chain of islands", and as an eyewitness he described the Gulag as a system where people were worked to death. In March 1940, there were 53 Gulag camp directorates (colloquially referred to as simply "camps") and 423 labour colonies in the Soviet Union. Many mining and industrial towns and cities in northern and eastern Russia and in Kazakhstan such as Karaganda, Norilsk, Vorkuta and Magadan, were originally blocks of camps built by prisoners and subsequently run by ex-prisoners.


Googlag, also known as Evil Google of the Silicon Valley Gulag is a left-wing authoritarian American Communism 2.0 company whose primary business is Internet-based services, including an extremely popular Big Brother search engine. Google is associated with liberal causes and has been criticized for catering to communist China in censoring information from the people as requested by dictators:<ref>http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/4647398.stm</ref>

: Reporters Without Borders joined others in asking how Google could claim to stand up for US users' freedoms while controlling what Chinese users can search for. Its previous search engine for China's fast-growing market was subject to government blocks. The new site - Google.cn - censors itself to satisfy Beijing. While cooperating with China's government, Google refuses to fulfill requests by the U.S. Department of Justice. <ref>http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/4630694.stm , BBC Google defies US over search data, January 20, 2006</ref> Google counsel Nicole Wong said “..we intend to resist their motion vigorously.”

“Google is known to hire the best and brightest in the world, but what happens when political correctness meets science? James Damore made history when he was fired from the tech giant after his memo on gender and STEM jobs was released to the public. The media attacked him as a sexist but MILO gets an in-depth interview with the man behind the memo and the science of the sexes.”

Milo's Silicon Valley Thought Crimes Shirt is convincing enough that the real morality police won't even ask to see your papers!

James Damore of Google recently wrote a memo detailing his thoughts about Google's diversity initiatives. Within a month, it went viral, and he was fired, for “perpetuating gender stereotypes.” The problem is that everything James claimed is solidly backed by well-developed scientific literatures. Thus, the company in charge of much of the world's communication has now fired an excellent engineer for citing established scientific truths.

In this full 50 min interview, James and I discuss his motivations, and the consequences of his actions. We are joined (audio only) by another Google employee who wishes, for obvious reasons, to remain anonymous.

A fund-raiser for James has been established, here: http://bit.ly/2uuI0lf

To quote de Bruyn et al: high status predicts more mating opportunities and, thus, increased reproductive success. “This is true for human adults in many cultures, both ‘modern’ as well as ‘primitive’ (Betzig, 1986). In fact, this theory seems to be confirmed for non-human primates (Cheney, 1983; Cowlishaw and Dunbar, 1991; Dewsbury, 1982; Gray, 1985; Maslow, 1936) and other animals from widely differing ecologies (Ellis, 1995) such as squirrels (Farentinos, 1972), cockerels (Kratzer and Craig, 1980), and cockroaches (Breed, Smith, and Gall, 1980).” Status also increases female reproductive success, via a different pathway: “For females, it is generally argued that dominance is not necessarily a path to more copulations, as it is for males. It appears that important benefits bestowed upon dominant women are access to resources and less harassment from rivals (Campbell, 2002). Thus, dominant females tend to have higher offspring survival rates, at least among simians (Pusey, Williams, and Goodall, 1997); thus, dominance among females also appears to be linked to reproductive success.”

Google is an internet services company whose primary business is the collection and dissemination of information. However, they have become known for their political bias, as they continually slant the information they serve (particularly through their search engine and YouTube platform), in favor of leftist ideology. Their services include a monopolistic search engine (which promotes something liberal nearly every day), a web browser, webmaster tools, and phone operating system. Google is associated with liberal causes and has been criticized for manipulating search results,<ref>Nolan, Lucas (September 21, 2018). 5 Times Google Manipulated Search, YouTube, and News Results. Breitbart News. Retrieved September 21, 2018.</ref> along with catering to communist China in censoring information from the people as requested by dictators:<ref>http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/4647398.stm</ref>

Google virtually never features a conservative theme on its search page, and repeatedly promotes liberal themes instead. Google espouses Leftist political policies while underpaying its own workers and even creating a severe housing crisis in its community for low-income workers. Google also exploits H-1B visas in order to import foreigners to do engineering work, with less risk of the workers leaving for a competitor to Google.

Major competitors of Google include Yahoo!, DuckDuckGo, and Microsoft's Bing.

Corporate Information

The CEO of Google since 2001 was Eric Schmidt. He announced that he was stepping down as CEO in 2011. Google is headquartered in Mountain View, California. Google was founded on September 7, 1998, by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Since then, it has grown to be the largest Internet search engine in the world. According to Alexa Internet, over 25% of all Internet users visit Google monthly.<ref>Alexa Traffic Results for Google</ref>

Google also owns YouTube, the homemade video clip site. Viacom is suing YouTube, and thus Google, for a reported $1 billion, arguing that the economic model of YouTube is based on copyright infringement.<ref>Viacom will sue YouTube for $1bn</ref>

After much debate about their corporate Code of Conduct, Google's founders settled on the all-encompassing “Don't be evil”, saying,“It's built around the recognition that everything we do in connection with our work at Google will be, and should be, measured against the highest possible standards”.<ref>Google Code of Conduct</ref> This Code of Conduct has generated much criticism, saying they have missed that mark badly.

History

Google's logo on [[Earth Day />

, April 22, 2007.</small>]]

Founding

Google was originally a research project, started by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1996, when the two attended Stanford University. The two registered the domain name google.stanford.edu, and the small search engine went online for the first time.<ref>Corporate Information:Google Milestones</ref>

Growth

The year Google was created 1998, it had amassed 26 million unique URLs in their database. By 2000, Google had indexed more than 1 billion pages. As of July 2008, Google has indexed over 1 trillion pages. Its core service is usually referred to as Google Search.<ref>Google reveals scope of Web-crawling task CNET News, July 25, 2008</ref> Google Search was enhanced with a feature called Google Instant in 2010 which quickly displays suggested search works as the user types. This reveals how the search information is organized in a “semantic Web” and the degree to which is it understood beyond just simple string matching. This feature seems to be further enhanced by the semantic information in Knowledge Graph.

Competition

Microsoft has been aggressively competing with Google for a larger share of the search market. Their latest effort, Bing.com, is a “next generation” search service which has generated praise for its user interface and criticism for its speed and performance in comparison to Google and Yahoo.

Other potential competitors, such as Apple, have chosen to keep Google as its default search provider. In return, Apple received $9 billion.<ref>Google reportedly paying Apple $9 billion to remain default search engine in Safari on iOS</ref> That amount will increase to $12 billion in 2019.<ref>Google reportedly paying Apple $9 billion to remain default search engine in Safari on iOS</ref>

Secular Progressive Culture

Google's West Coast headquarters hires a majority of left-leaning personalities, explicitly in executive decision-making.<ref>See ://www.google.com/corporate/execs.html for a list of board members and senior staff.</ref> Google supports causes that are a radical departure from traditional American views, such as their public support of a 'no' vote for California's Proposition 8, which defined marriage as being between a husband and wife. Also in a subtle way, they favor politically-correct global liberalism, championed by secular progressives. They select certain days of importance for tribute, some of which are controversial.<!– commenting out the following as it's not clear what it means: some are for lack of observance.–> As such, Merry Christmas is replaced by Happy Holidays. Even though, poll <ref>Wish Me A Merry Christmas Campaign Crusades to Change Retail Culture PRWeb, November 26, 2008</ref> after poll <ref>68% Prefer “Merry Christmas” to “Happy Holidays” Rasmussen, November 27, 2008</ref> after poll <ref>Poll: More Americans prefer 'Merry Christmas' greeting CNN, December 20, 2005</ref> shows the public prefers 'Merry Christmas'. The problem may be that Google doesn't respect traditional Christian holidays, in favor of a 'culturally-correct' approach. In addition, Google accepts the Theory of Evolution by Charles Darwin as fact, promotes Darwin on their homepage with a Google Doodle logo.<ref>[Scientists unveil fossil of Darwinius masillae]</ref>

Google often honors Russia with their logo of Sputnik and for composer Igor Stravinsky. Google based their United States Independence Day logo on ‘This Land Is Your Land’ as an ode to leftism. Woody Guthrie wrote the lyrics and also wrote for The Daily Worker, a Marxist newspaper.<ref>Google Chooses Communist-Oriented ‘This Land Is Your Land’ July 4th Theme, Breitbart.com, July 4, 2012</ref>

Google versus Conservatives

Google has also been accused of delisting conservative news sites from its search engine. As one of many examples, “In February 2005, Michelle Malkin wrote of the difficulties she was having becoming part of Google News.”<ref>http://newsbusters.org/node/5477</ref> Google has made it harder to find websites promoting conservative content.<ref>Multiple references:

Google is also a major promoter of Charles Darwin and atheistic science, even to the point of giving special recognition to the anniversary of Darwin's birthday (“Darwin Day”).

Google's online translator system generally “translates” by predicting from linguistic patterns based on UN documents in various languages.<ref>https://blogs.transparent.com/language-news/2015/09/02/how-google-translate-works-and-why-it-doesnt-measure-up/</ref> This generally results in shoddy translations from languages that don't have the same or similar linguistics as English, such as Japanese.

Google versus Anti- Obama Blogs

The question immediately raised, “Did Google Silence Barack Obama critics?” It turns out, no they did not. A group of separate blogs were targeted by their spam filter as a result of manipulating the 'flag' feature. This caused a temporary blockage for five days. Sites affected were Hillary supporters and all anti-Obama. They include http://bluelyon.blogspot.com, http://comealongway.blogspot.com, http://hillaryorbust.blogspot.com and http://mccaindemocrats.blogspot.com and their main associate JustSayNoDeal.com <ref>Google and the Anti-Obama Bloggers NYTimes June 30, 2008</ref>

Google sensitive to Islam

In 2010, it was noted that Google's search suggestions for the world's various religions would bring up many negative results for Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism. Typing a search for “Christianity is…” the results would be “Christianity is a lie,” or “Judaism is…” would be “Judaism is a cult.” Google removed negative search suggestions when typing “Islam is…”,<ref>Google Blocking Negative Search Recommendations On Islam – Why?, The Next Web, May 1, 2010</ref> however it seems that Google has reverted this, as the current first suggestion when typing “islam is…” is “Islam is evil”.

Google versus Vladimir Putin

On the day of Olympic Winter Games in Russia, Google created a homepage icon, that supports the homosexual agenda. It shows a rainbow-coloured group of athletes. The background is Putin's position on Homosexuality.<ref>https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-26080047</ref>

Google bombing

Perhaps the most innovative contribution Google has made to Internet searching is its PageRank algorithm. This system works by counting the number of sites that link to another site; the more links pointing to a page, the higher that page will be ranked. The engine also takes note of how often the page is updated. Due to this, Wikipedia® is consistently ranked very highly by Google, due to its constant updating and heavy linkage. More recently, Internet-savvy Googlers have discovered ways to game the system; creating massive numbers of pages with links pointing to one page to form what is known as a “Google Bomb”. Some examples can be found below.<ref>Dropping 'Google-bombs'</ref>

  • “Miserable Failure”: For nearly two years, typing “miserable failure” (or even just “miserable”, or “failure”) and then clicking “I'm Feeling Lucky” in the Google search engine would return the White House Biography of George W. Bush.<ref>'Miserable failure' links to Bush</ref> This was orchestrated by Democratic Party supporters in late 2003,<ref>In October, Johnson, a Democrat, added the phrase "miserable failure" to his Web site, Old Fashioned Patriot. He then linked the site to the online White House biography of President Bush and asked others to follow his lead</ref> as part of the 2004 Presidential election. However, at times, Conservative supporters were able to shift the phrase to Jimmy Carter, Hillary Clinton and Michael Moore.
  • '“Great President”: returns the White House Biography of George W. Bush.
  • “Jew”: The first result used to be the home page for “Jew Watch”, a racist, anti-Semitic hate group. As of September 2012, Jew Watch is the 4th result, although it has now shown even lower in the result list.
  • “Waffles”: Also as part of the 2004 Presidential election, Conservative supporters managed to link the term “waffles” to the official Web site of John Kerry.
  • “French Military Victories”: Hitting “I'm Feeling Lucky” for this term directs you to a fake Google page (in reality, it is an AlbinoBlackSheep.com page, styled to look exactly like a Google page, here) giving no matches, and asking if you meant “French military defeats?”.
  • “Weapons of Mass Destruction” would bring up a similar page with the error message 'not found.'
  • “[Rick] Santorum”: Homosexual activist Dan Savage created a Web site with an obscene definition for the word “santorum” because politician Rick Santorum opposes same-sex marriage. This page was number one on Google for several years when people searched for his last name (and at times, his full name as well). Once Santorum began to campaign for President, his campaign Web site eventually made it up to the top spot, but as of September 2012, the Wikipedia page about Savage's actions is currently the top result, followed by the Wikipedia page for Santorum. Savage's site has fallen to the third spot. Santorum's presidential campaign Web site has fallen to number four, since Santorum is no longer in the race.

On January 25, 2007, Google claimed to have modified their PageRank algorithm to lessen the likelihood of future Google bombs<ref>Bush no longer "miserable failure": Google tackles googlebombs</ref>

Controversy

Tax Dodging

A report by Bloomberg News has Google setting up offshore banks accounts to avoid paying taxes on foreign profits. More than $3.9 billion have made it to Bermuda bank accounts over the last several years. Google has cut its effective tax rate abroad to just 2.4%. The practice is common and George Soros has been known to place his billions of dollars in Cayman Island banks. This costs the U.S. government more than $60 billion in revenue.<ref>After news of Google tax dodges, Obama raises money with Google execs, Washington Examiner, October 22, 2010</ref>

Privacy Concerns

Google has been criticized by privacy activists and others. Google chief executive Eric Schmidt said, “We cannot even answer the most basic questions because we don’t know enough about you. That is the most important aspect of Google’s expansion.” <ref>http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/c3e49548-088e-11dc-b11e-000b5df10621,dwp_uuid=e8477cc4-c820-11db-b0dc-000b5df10621.html</ref> Google has attempted to “remedy” this situation by storing search information, in effect, keeping tabs on people for two years after they search. This has led Google critic Daniel Brandt to create “Scroogle.org”, which runs Google searches that users conduct through his organization's personal servers to prevent Google from being able to connect any personal information to the searchers.<ref>http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=55935</ref><br />

A number of other privacy concerns have arisen, including the disclosure of Google's Sensorvault database in 2019. This database reportedly contains extensive records of GPS locations on almost all Android devices. This is an extensive record of every precise location almost every individual device has ever been. This wealth of information reveals many aspects of each owner's behavior, interests, and overall lifestyle. Sensorvault has also reportedly been utilized by law enforcement to find behavioral correlations of devices, then acquire the identity information of certain users of special interest. It is unclear exactly to what extend Google (and Alphabet Inc.) have been selling/sharing access to this data, or analytical conclusion from it.<ref>https://www.eff.org/es/deeplinks/2019/04/googles-sensorvault-can-tell-police-where-youve-been</ref><ref>https://www.cnet.com/news/law-enforcement-taps-googles-sensorvault-for-location-data-report-says/</ref><ref>https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/13/technology/google-sensorvault-location-tracking.html</ref>

Google has sometimes been called the Orwellian “Ministry of Truth.” In many ways, its offerings have evolved into one singular full-scale surveillance platform.<ref>How Google Made Android The World’s Most Ubiquitous Surveillance Platform</ref>

The Wall Street Journal reported in November 2019 that Google had been collecting the health data of millions of Americans.<ref>Copeland, Rob (November 11, 2019). Google’s ‘Project Nightingale’ Gathers Personal Health Data on Millions of Americans. The Wall Street Journal. Retrieved November 17, 2019.</ref>

Net neutrality

Google has repeatedly demonstrated hypocrisy as it says one thing and does another, tarnishing their reputation in the process. This can can be seen again with their support of net neutrality, while at the same time doing what they want in regards to restricting access.<ref>Google undermines the Internet, RedState.com, August 23, 2009</ref>

Election meddling

:

Dr. Robert Epstein of the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology testified before Congress in 2019 that Google bias and meddling had shifted “between 2.6 million and up to 10.4 million votes” to Hillary Clinton.<ref>https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2019/08/psychologist-google-generated-at-least-2-6-million-votes-for-hillary.php</ref>

On October 20, 2018, Google, acting in collusion with the liberal media outlets and other mayoral candidates (including incumbent Toronto mayor and former Ontario Progressive Conservative leader John Tory, who is also a former broadcaster and has connections in the mainstream media), illegally shut down the online advertising campaign of conservative journalist and Toronto mayoral candidate Faith Goldy, 48 hours before the opening of polls for the Toronto civic election on October 22, with no justifiable explanation for the shutdown against Goldy and in potential violation of Canada's campaign financing and election laws.<ref>Google Shuts Down Advertising Campaign of Toronto Mayoral Candidate Faith Goldy Before Election at Breitbart News Network</ref>

In an article titled How Google Could Rig the 2016 Election in August 2015 Politico warned Google “can easily shift the voting preferences of undecided voters by 20 percent or more—up to 80 percent in some demographic groups—with virtually no one knowing they are being manipulated… In the United States, half of our presidential elections have been won by margins under 7.6 percent”.<ref>How Google Could Rig the 2016 Election, Google has the ability to drive millions of votes to a candidate with no one the wiser, By Robert Epstein, Politico, August 19, 2015</ref>

On July 19, 2019, Professor Robert Epstein revealed before the Judiciary Senate Committee that Google was responsible for swaying 2.6 million people into voting for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential elections, and had also implied that the amount of people swayed may have been as many as 10.4 million votes, and may have even been trying to influence national elections as early as 2015.<ref name=“Epstein testimony PDF”>https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Epstein%20Testimony.pdf</ref><ref name=“Epstein testimony YouTube”>https://youtu.be/IzF7nBmwPso</ref>

2020 election meddling

:

Tulsi Gabbard is suing Google for $50 million for censorship of her campaign ads.<ref>https://thehill.com/policy/technology/454746-tulsi-gabbard-sues-google-over-censorship-claims</ref> Google blocked her ads account shortly after the first Democrat presidential debate, when Gabbard became the most-searched-for candidate in the Democrat field.

Gabbard’s complaint accuses Google of censoring the candidate at the very moment when millions of Americans wanted to learn more about her. It also accuses Google of sending Gabbard’s campaign emails to people’s Gmail spam folders at a “disproportionately high rate.” The campaign seeks a legal injunction against Google to prevent further election meddling, as well as $50 million in damages. According to Gabbard’s legal complaint against Google:

The legal complaint argues that Google could have a nefarious impact on American democracy if its behavior is allowed to continue unchecked. This is the viewpoint of Dr. Robert Epstein, who says the Silicon Valley Masters of the Universe will “go all out” to influence the 2020 election.

In a series of Tweets, the Hawaii Democrat said Google’s actions “reveals the danger of their dominance & how the dominance of big tech over public discourse threatens core American values.”<ref>https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/07/25/tulsi-gabbard-sues-google-for-censorship-of-ads/</ref>

After Hillary's Clinton's xenophobic smear, Steven Crowder demonstrated during his radio program how Google was actively suppressing Tulsi Gabbard search results in the United States.<ref>https://www.zerohedge.com/political/tulsis-youtube-suppressed</ref>

Interference with Trump presidency

Owing to all of the above, Google has been accused of trying to stifle conservative voices (especially those that support Trump) and only allowing for left-wing viewpoints to be shown on the search engine. Although Google twice denied these claims, this was eventually confirmed on September 12, 2018, via a leaked video via Breitbart for the TGIF session immediately after Donald Trump's election, where the upper management not only made their views of the American public clear by inferring that those who voted for Donald Trump were “fascists and communists”, but also strongly implied that they were going to dedicate all of their resources to making sure the rise of populism is squashed.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRf9UxsM-NE&feature=youtu.be</ref><ref>Bokhari, Allum (September 12, 2018).

On a similar note, Professor Epstein when giving testimony towards Google's efforts in overturning elections mentioned that, aside from its aforementioned role in manipulating votes in Hillary Clinton's favor, it also may have been responsible for the manipulation of as many as 78 million votes during the 2018 midterm elections, and has also implied that they are using their autocomplete programs for their products as a form of social engineering.<ref name=“Epstein testimony PDF” /><ref name=“Epstein testimony YouTube” />

Relationship with the Obama Administration

Consumer Watchdog crafted a 32-page report detailing how Google has inappropriately benefited from its close ties to the Obama Administration. NASA's Moffett Airfield has been turned into a taxpayer-subsidized private airport for Google executives used for corporate junkets. NASA's Moffett Airfield is a short distance from Google's world headquarters. The report details, “A growing fleet of jets and helicopters stand ready to ferry the company's top executives near or far, for business or pleasure, for vacations or schmoozing, including at least three wintertime trips to the Caribbean and a trip by Google chief executive Eric Schmidt to the Cannes Film Festival.” <ref>Consumer Watchdog Sends Issa's Oversight Committee Google Report Showing Inappropriate Relationship with Obama Administration, RedOrbit.com, January 24, 2011</ref>

Homosexual agenda

As was already mentioned, Google has been actively blocking certain websites and services which oppose sodomy (homosexuality). They also speak out in support of the homosexual movement, and promote search results which do the same.<ref>https://blog.google/topics/causes-community/transvoices</ref><ref>https://money.cnn.com/2012/07/08/technology/google-legalize-love/index.htm</ref><ref>https://winteryknight.com/2012/07/09/google-starts-wordlwide-campaign-to-legalize-gay-marriage-target-donates-to-gay-rights-groups</ref><ref>https://onetoday.google.com</ref> They also donate to some other organizations which do the same, as well and politicians who seek the same goal.<ref>http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2008/09/our-position-on-californias-no-on-8.html , Our position on California's No on 8 campaign</ref>

Google considers the term “family friendly” to be “homophobic.”<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--3oGtllMXY&feature=youtu.be</ref> On June 21, 2009, Google displayed a special multicolored line for searches on the word “gay”. Additionaly, Google compensates employees to cover taxes paid on their domestic partner's health benefits, but only offers its 'generosity' to homosexual couples.<ref>https://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/07/01/google-raises-eyebrows-new-gay-employee-benefit/</ref>

Collaboration with China

It was revealed in 2018 that Google was collaborating with China and supported the government's censorship agenda.<ref>Nash, Charlie (October 10, 2018). Google’s ‘Shift Towards Censorship’ Aids Relationship with China. Breitbart News. Retrieved October 10, 2018.</ref>

Reporters Without Borders joined others in asking how Google could stand up for US users' freedoms while controlling what Chinese users can search for. Its previous search engine for China's fast-growing market was subject to government blocks. The new site - Google.cn - censors itself to satisfy Beijing. While cooperating with China's government, Google refuses to fulfill requests by the U.S. Department of Justice.<ref>http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/4630694.stm , BBC Google defies US over search data, January 20, 2006</ref> Google counsel Nicole Wong said “..we intend to resist their motion vigorously.”

Opposing industry standards

In addition to their political activities, Google has caused some controversy within its own industry by refusing to comply with industry standards. Since they own the most popular web browser and the most popular search engine (at least within the US), they have decided that they can bring about changes they believe are needed despite what the rest of the industry has decided.<br /> For example, the norm is that users are only logged into a service when they request it, and when they attempt to delete the cookies in their browser, the browser does so. However, Google decided in 2018 to automatically log users into their google accounts, and protect the google cookies from deletion, so that Google's cookies could not be deleted by the user (through the browser).<ref>https://www.wired.com/story/google-chrome-login-privacy/</ref><ref>https://www.theverge.com/2018/9/24/17895536/google-chrome-69-log-in-sync-password-user-data-privacy</ref><br /> As another example, Google search was changed in 2018 to hide certain subdomains, including the “www” which many websites use. Users only would see the domain name and the TLD, while the rest was masked. Further, the search engine would link users to sites which were using the “www” subdomain without that subdomain, so the site would need to redirect users to the proper location. Google knew this was not what the sites wanted, but chose to make this change anyway.<ref>https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/google-security-risk-hiding-subdomains/</ref><ref>https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/google/google-testing-removal-of-www-subdomain-from-search-results/</ref><ref>https://technocodex.com/google-removed-www-and-m-subdomains-in-chrome-69-how-to-disable-it/</ref> Not only is this inconvenient, but masking parts of URLs in inherently dangerous, since attackers can abuse such features to trick users into trusting a fraudulent site or page. The industry standard is, therefore, to show users the entire link which they have used to connect.<br /> Also in 2018, Google decided to make an additional change. They began trying to force websites to begin using the Hyper-text transfer protocol secure (HTTPS) rather than the older standard HTTP. While HTTPS is helpful, some webpages have reason to not use HTTPS. While the industry is moving slowly to HTTPS, Google decided to begin interfering with the loading and interaction in Chrome of sites which are not using HTTPS for their pages and all of the content therein. This caused many users to experience problems visiting websites, simply because Google no longer approved of sites using HTTP.

Wi-Fi Snooping

Google collected information from Wi-Fi networks as its street-view vans cruised neighborhoods around the globe, raising issues in more than 30 countries. The information Google gathered included e-mail fragments and passwords, alarming politicians and privacy and security advocates in Germany, France, and Spain.<ref>Is National Security Behind Google's Wi-Fi Spying?, Fox News, July 23, 2010</ref> It was noted that Google supplies special mapping and search products to the U.S. military and intelligence community, with some Google employees enjoying Top Secret clearance to work with the government. Google said it was “accidental” data gathering. Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, a senior Republican lawmaker, suggested that Google's data collection wasn't accidental and that it was “something to look at.” Under the Democrat leadership, the FCC investigated, but dropped further inquiry, coincidentally, just before a Google Democrat fundraiser was held. Many groups have been calling on Republican Darrell Issa to investigate Google's cozy relationship with the Obama administration.<ref>Congress Must Investigate Google-Obama Ties, National Legal and Policy Center, November 10, 2010</ref>

International Agitation

Google's Map service is responsible for escalating tensions between foreign nations by radically misleading versions of current borders.

Costa Rica took offense to Google Maps version showing that a specific area of encampment was on Nicaraguan soil. The dispute that had ensued over Google's version of the Nicaragua-Costa Rica border has became rather serious. So much so that the secretary general of the Organization of American States had to intervene.<ref>Envoy to solve latest Google Maps border dispute?

Egyptian Uprising

Google executive Wael Ghonim helped with protesting Egypt's rule of Hosni Mubarak, calling for him to step down and organizing protests. He was detained by authorities and released after two weeks. Ghonim is credited as being a major factor in sparking Egypt's uprising. Google CEO Eric Schmidt said that Google is “very, very proud” of Wael Ghonim.<ref>Google CEO Eric Schmidt says company is 'very proud' of Egypt's Wael Ghonim, LA Times, February 15, 2011</ref>

Benghazi massacre

After the Benghazi attack, Hillary's State Department was in contact with Google. Hillary publicly claimed a controversial video was the source of a 'spontaneous' riot which proved to be a knowingly false statement. Google participated in the ruse by agreeing to block the video even after President Obama admitted it was a pre-planned terrorist attack. Copies of the email were forwarded to Denis McDonough, Cheryl Mills, Patrick F Kennedy, Jake Sullivan and John Brennan. The email also contains contact information for Google CEO Afternoon (Larry) Page and YouTube CEO Salar Kamangar including their mobile and office phone numbers.<ref>UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2015-04841 Doc No. C05739829 STATE DEPT. wikileaks.org</ref>
