TECH TYRANNY: Some New Numbers On How Many MILLIONS Of Votes Were ‘Shifted’ In 2018

While Democrats still grumble over the results in Georgia, and complain about ‘Russians’ we’ve got a much bigger threat to Democracy right here in Silicon Valley.

We were already talking about the fifteen million votes that could be quietly influenced by Big Tech to tilt Blue in 2020 through almost untraceable methods.

Now we’ve got a NEW estimate out for how many votes were flipped by Big Tech influence for all the races in 2018.

You might want to sit down before you read this number: 78.2 Million votes.

Dr Robert Epstein, who gave us the 15 Million number for the 2020 presidential election has crunched the data for 2018.

While there is a bipartisan interest on how to deal with these big tech companies, Dr. Epstein said that “Congress is just not gone get it together on time to protect us, the American public, from interference in the 2020 election by big tech.
Google has likely been determining the outcomes of upwards of 25 percent of the national elections worldwide since at least 2015. This is because many races are very close and because Google’s persuasive technologies are very powerful.

In the weeks leading up to the 2018 election, bias in Google’s search results may have shifted upwards of 78.2 million votes to the candidates of one political party (spread across hundreds of local and regional races). This number is based on data captured by my 2018 monitoring system, which preserved more than 47,000 election-related searches on Google, Bing, and Yahoo, along with the nearly 400,000 web pages to which the search results linked. Strong political bias toward one party was evident, once again, in Google searches.

These effects are nothing like Russian-placed ads or fake news stories. Russian interference, although troubling and unacceptable, does not, in my opinion, shift many votes (Epstein, 2017d, 2018a). Ads and news stories are competitive and visible, like billboards. The kinds of ephemeral effects I am studying, however, are invisible and non-competitive. They are controlled entirely by Big Tech companies, and there is no way to counteract them.

So, Hillary can wring her hands about Russia all she likes. But if Google keeps this up, we will only continue under the illusion of having a democratic process, where the real decisions are being made by people with technology that can literally influence our thinking on a fundamental level.

And that group just ‘HAPPENS’ to be rabidly political.
