While fact-checking a Federalist article early Monday morning, I did a quick Google search for “hunter biden joe biden ‘an absolute wall.’”
It’s the language now-President Joe Biden used during the 2020 campaign to allege a separation between his vice-presidential duties and his son’s overseas work for the family business. It’s back in the news after the House Oversight Committee on Thursday asked the National Archives and Records Administration for unredacted communications containing three of Joe Biden’s vice presidential pseudonyms: Robert Peters, Robin Ware, and JRB Ware.
Google, however, apparently didn’t want me to find too much information — at least not from certain sources.
“It looks like the results below are changing quickly. If this topic is new, it can sometimes take time for reliable sources to publish information,” Google alerted me, prompting me to make sure the source is “trusted on this topic” and maybe just to “come back later.”
Here’s the thing: This isn’t a new topic; it’s four years old. It was all the way back in August 2019 that Biden was making the “absolute wall” pledge, according to contemporaneous articles from regime-approved media such as Politico. More than “a few hours or days” have passed.
So why did Google want me to come back later? Perhaps because in 2023, Biden’s “absolute wall” resembles the one on our southern border or surrounding the biblical Jericho: at best easily penetrable and at worst completely tumbled down.
Now that his campaign promise has been exposed as utter horse pucky — just check the receipts, whistleblower testimony, texts from Hunter Biden, assertions from former Biden family business partners, “highly credible” FBI source evidence, and more — the only journalists covering it, consistently and without burying the lede, are outside of Big Tech-boosted leftist media.
Yet those excellent reporters aren’t the types tech giants consider “reliable” or “trustworthy,” due entirely to their political leanings. Those labels are reserved for the media laundering juicy disinformation straight from the “Big Guy’s” DOJ and Hunter’s lawyers.
If the 2024 election cycle is anything like the last one, this is exactly the kind of foul play we now expect from Big Tech. Recall some of the many ways tech oligarchs interfered in the 2020 election. Remember when Google allegedly disproportionately sent 2020 GOP campaign emails to spam folders?
Perhaps worst of all, social media giants colluded with the FBI to make sure the fewest possible people could see or share the bombshell story about Hunter Biden’s laptop (which the FBI knew was authentic). That true story implicated then-candidate Joe Biden in a pay-to-play scheme.
One poll showed more than 1 in 6 Biden voters would have changed their votes had they been aware of some of the damning stories suppressed by Silicon Valley gatekeepers. That would have been enough to tip the election.
If that weren’t enough, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg dumped hundreds of millions of dollars into local government elections offices in the blue areas of swing states to get out the Democrat vote in 2020.
Then to keep people from questioning the most rigged and irregular election in U.S. history, tech giants removed the posts and accounts of incredulous social media users, including even the sitting president of the United States.
Big Tech’s warfare goes far deeper than a single election, too. As the gatekeepers of information, tech giants control public opinion and drive traffic to certain sources and away from others with algorithmic manipulation.
YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter habitually nuke speech leftists don’t like, often relying on deceptive fact-checks and colluding with the U.S. government to do so. Google, Twitter, and other tech overlords have shadowbanned conservative thinkers.
In one particularly brazen anti-expression act, when The Federalist criticized media coverage of George Floyd’s death and the violent Black Lives Matter arsonists and vandals in 2020, Google worked with left-wing media to demonetize this website.
Now another presidential election is right around the corner, and the stage is set. Democrats and left-wing prosecutors are waging endless lawfare against Trump, the far-and-away GOP frontrunner, to keep him out of office again. Meanwhile, more scandalous information about the Biden family business is brought to light by hard-working congressional investigators and whistleblowers by the day.
For what it’s worth, I checked back about 12 hours after my initial query to see if any other sources Google considered “reliable” had gotten around to publishing something new on Biden’s “absolute wall.” Nada. “Results below are changing quickly,” my arse.
That’s because Google’s little “come back later” message wasn’t an invitation to see the truth about Biden. It was an attempt to hide it. More than that, it was a reminder as we embark on another election season: Big Tech doesn’t need to be told to prop up the regime’s candidate. It already knows its job and is happy to oblige.
