An email chain reveals the company tried to influence the 2016 election by encouraging Latinos to get out the vote for Clinton.
“In the emails, a Google executive describes efforts to pay for free rides for a certain sect of the population to the polls–a get-out-the-vote for Hispanic voters operation–and how these efforts were because she thought it would help Hillary Clinton win the general election in 2016. She also used the term ‘silent donation’ to describe Google’s contribution to the effort to elect Clinton president.”
The emails, first obtained by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, admitted that the effort was a failure when Trump carried 29 percent of Hispanics nationally and about 31 percent in the key battleground of Florida. Heh.
UPDATE: John Hinderaker at Power Line Blog posts a video of Google execs obtained by Breitbart showing them lamenting Trump’s election and strategizing how to unseat him. Hinderaker says it’s official, Google is a Democrat Party front. What to do about the Leftist tech-monopolies of Silicon Valley, Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.?
Gee, haven’t they (and radio and TV and some of the Internet) been doing that since 2016?. But this is a special effort called and coordinated by the Boston Globe (
owned sold by the NYSlimes in 2013) due to Trump’s general “fake news” criticism and his “enemy of the people” charge against specific outlets.
“I hope it would educate readers to realize that an attack on the First Amendment is unacceptable,’’ said Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the editorial page of The Boston Globe. ‘‘We are a free and independent press, it is one of the most sacred principles enshrined in the Constitution.’’
Ah, but the First Amendment doesn’t say the government can’t criticize the news media.
“Mr. Trump enjoys free speech just as his media adversaries do. Rather, the First Amendment prevents government from infringing on the rights of Americans to speak and publish. And on that score, there’s a reasonable case that Mr. Trump’s predecessor presented a greater threat to press freedom, to say nothing of Mr. Trump’s 2016 opponent. Mrs. Clinton wanted to restrict the ability of Americans to make a documentary about her. We don’t recall editorial boards joining together to announce they were not with her.”

UPDATE: Another recovering journalist: “By Friday, those pages will be in the bottom of recycle bins and bird cages. And in their cozy, mutual isolations, millions on both sides will feel sure once more that they’re in the right.”
“The question is which of two scenarios is more likely true. Either 1) [FBI director of counter-intelligence Peter] Strzok was completely incompetent, or 2) his pro-Clinton bias displayed in the thousands of text messages between him and Page caused him to downplay this security issue and ignore it, because it could hurt his favored presidential candidate if it came to light.”—Swen Swenson at Instapundit.
“…according to the information [Texas Rep Louie] Gohmert received from the intelligence inspector general, something was causing Clinton’s server to send copies of all of her email communications outside of the country ‘to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia.'”
