It’s hard not to notice the extremely ‘close’ relationship between big tech megacorps and elected Democrats. At what point have they officially crossed the line?

Democrats love throwing around accusations that Republicans are unduly influenced by ‘Dark Money’, while carefully avoiding any conversation that would point back to the many unaccountable agencies that dump money into their war chests in exchange for political influence.

Has this whistleblower identified an example that was more flagrant than even our admittedly cynical expectations had anticipated?

We’ve already spent gone to some length exposing the irony of Democrats screaming that Russians spending a few hundred thousand in Facebook ads was ‘stealing the election’ while at the same time maintaining that Mark Zuckerburg whitewashing hundreds of millions of dollars through a ‘charity’ with ‘strings-attached donations’ that he used to politicize and hijack the work of election officials in key battleground states was somehow a non-issue.

Examples:

We all witnessed a variety of interests coordinate to ‘fortify the election’ in 2020. We looked on as the big tech censors closed ranks to bury the Hunter Biden story, how they worked in concert to destroy Parler, and deplatform President Trump, we were raising red flags long before the election that search algorithms could push voter swings numbering in the millions, and YouTube refused to run Trump campaign ads. On top of that, top brass in Silicon Valley were discussing how even red state America could be strong-armed into being California-ed (expressly against your will!) through a ‘new civil war’.

Little did most of us know they weren’t talking about a military conflict; they were talking about an information war, while they knew they were holding all the cards.

Now that Biden holds the balance of political power, he has stacked his White House with tons of advisors from the usual suspects in Silicon Valley … who have carried forward in dutifully carrying Biden’s water in silencing political dissent on the government’s behalf  — under the guise of ‘stopping misinformation’.

They did it through Covid, they’ve done it for a variety of racially divisive issues, and they have been crushing anyone who dares say the unsayable things about male encroachment on women’s sports.

But now we know there have been Silicon valley plants in the White House for quite some time.

As you read what follows, imagine the outrage if this same scenario were to play out with some megacorp drilling or mining company cozying up to Republican leadership.

Reports are circulating about former Alphabet (i.e. Google) CEO Eric Schmidt using a charitable foundation as a backdoor to inserting his people into positions where they can exert influence in the White House. (In light of all the talk about changes to Big Tech legislation, including Section 230, over the past few years this is no small matter.)

Schmidt, who is estimated to be worth $23 billion, has had an outsize influence on OSTP since Biden took office, Politico reported Monday. According to the outlet, more than a dozen officials in the 140-person office are or have been associates of his — including some current or former employees.

Through his foundation, Schmidt Futures, Schmidt has indirectly paid the salaries of two OSTP employees, including chief of staff Marc Aidinoff for six weeks, the report said.

In addition, the charity’s chief innovation officer, Tom Kalil, spent four months at OSTP as an unpaid consultant while on the Schmidt Futures payroll before stepping down amid ethics complaints.

Schmidt also maintained a close relationship with Eric Lander, Biden’s former science adviser, and other White House appointees, Politico reported.

…During Lander’s tenure, “significant” ethical red flags were raised about the agency allowing Schmidt Futures to foot the bill for some of Lander’s staff due to the former Google exec’s financial interests overlapping with the office’s work on artificial intelligence and data analytics, Politico reported, citing internal emails from then-general counsel Rachel Wallace.

… “I and others on the legal team had been noticing a large number of staff with financial connections to Schmidt Futures and were increasingly concerned about the influence this organization was able to have through these individuals,” said Wallace, who is being represented by the Government Accountability Project as a whistleblower.

Even before Biden was sworn in, this was a trend that had caught the notice of reporters:

At least 14 people who President-elect Joe Biden has picked to serve either in his administration or to advise his transition have worked for the Big Tech firms that cracked down earlier this week on President Donald Trump and a social media site popular with conservatives.

Apple’s top lobbyist was a chief adviser to the Biden transition team. A former Facebook executive will serve as staff director in the Biden White House, and a former Twitter executive will serve as chief spokesperson for the National Security Council under Biden.

Current and former executives at those firms and two others, Google and Amazon, fill out other positions in the incoming Biden administration, or his transition team. —DailyCaller

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
