Project Veritas and Persuasion

I keep coming across Project Veritas and James O'Keefe doing amazing work in exposing the misbehavior of the powerful. And this has become an increasingly effective form or persuasion.

There is nothing like seeing insiders brag about their power and how they intentionally deploy unfair or illegal practices to promote their agenda. Nothing better, in fact. 

I've set up several threads on OL to present this work, but now it's time to consolidate all things Veritas. From now on, I will use this thread to present new reports coming from Project Veritas and James O'Keefe, even if I present them elsewhere.

On doing a site search, here are some of the places on OL that already present this work.

This Is Worth $63,280.00 Per Year... - This 2015 thread is about administrators at Vassar College literally shredding the US Constitution in a paper shredder.

A 2015 post about Common Core

A 2016 post about the Clinton Campaign and DNC stirring up violence at Trump rallies

WikiLeaks and other Whistleblowers - Clinton - The opening post of this 2016 thread presents the four videos in the "Rigging the Election" series.

A 2017 post about a group called the DC Anti-Fascist Coalition trying to sabotage with butyric acid stink bombs the pro-Trump Deploraball at the National Press Club  the night before President Trump's inauguration

A 2017 post about releasing 100 hours of audio from inside CNN

A 2017 post (and the one following it) about a lawyer who helped exonerate a pedophile teacher who raped students

A 2017 post dealing with CNN admitting it hyped Trump-Russia bullshit for ratings

Veritas Deep State Project - A 2018 thread.

Veritas, O'Keefe and the 2018 Midterm Elections - A 2018 thread.

There's some more stuff around, but that is the bulk of the past postings. I might add to them if I find anything important.

For now, let's do the thing that is exploding today.

From Zero Hedge:

Google Using AI To Meddle In 2020 Election, Prevent 'Next Trump Situation': Veritas

Here it is on the Veritas site (which hit Drudge):

Insider Blows Whistle & Exec Reveals Google Plan to Prevent “Trump situation” in 2020 on Hidden Cam

There are videos at both links, and documents from Google at the Veritas link, but for convenience, here is a YouTube video of the main issue:

(VIDEO DELETED BY YOUTUBE.)

Since this could be taken down at any time seeing how Google owns YouTube, here is a BitChute link:

https://www.bitchute.com/video/re9Xp6cdkro/

The gist is that an employee of Google is interviewed as a whistleblower (with no clear image of him and with voice altered for the sake of anonymity), an administrator at Google is on tape openly admitting that Google is trying to skew the 2020 election with AI algorithms, and James O'Keefe shows how this works running a few trial searches.

This is disgusting. Google wants you to see what it wants you to see, not what you want to see on your own. And it has lots of behavioral science behind its manipulations to make sure what it wants you to see nudges you in the direction of its political agenda.

The employee said this was pure 1984 Newspeak and fascist.

The most damning thing was that the Google administrator said she loved Elizabeth Warren, but finds her midguided about wanting to break up Alphabet (Google's parent company). Why? Because if Google turns into a bunch of smaller companies, they will not be able to skew the 2020 election. If Google remains large, they will have (and use) the power to do that.

Since Tim Pool was mentioned in the Veritas video above, here is his response.

At face value, it looks like he is undermining the insider's claims by saying his own views are not suffering.

But I think he is actually making them stronger by saying he believes that the insider's stuff against Google is credible (based on his own sources inside YouTube) and recommends people set their platforms up (or make backups) on alt sites, especially Minds.

Tim did not deal with Google Search, which is where the Google insider worked, but instead with YouTube, which is a separate wing. So that could confuse the audience.

Still, Tim did a good and balanced report, both pro and con. Ultimately, he wants Google out of the elections and thinks Google actually is doing nefarious stuff against Trump's reelection. He's grateful for his platform on YouTube and does not agree that his own project has been damaged since it has grown instead, but is preparing for the day when they kick him off. And he tells everyone else who does political videos to do the same.

On Infowars:

Blacklist: MSM Ignores Project Veritas Bombshell Google Exposé

Quote

CNN, WaPo, CNBC, HuffPost, The New York Times, Vox, Vice, Newsweek, Politico, and even The Daily Beast haven’t written a single piece on the devastating evidence presented by a Google whistleblower and undercover footage of a Google executive discussing how to algorithmically manipulate the 2020 presidential election.

And there follows screenshot evidence. It's quite a show.

Another quote from the end. I believe it correctly states what most Trump supporters--and even some anti-Trumpers--think about all this.

Quote

Imagine if it was revealed that a “right-wing” tech company was trying to meddle in the 2020 election.

The truth is, the mainstream corporate media and the Silicon Valley czars are colluding with each other to consolidate power for the Democrats in the 2020 presidential election by employing censorship, manipulating data, and fabricating their own narratives.

But there is someone who did notice.

The Google lady busted in the video:

This is not how I expected Monday to go!
by Jen Gennai

She doesn't like it when the crap lands on her. She cried foul because people decided to do this covertly. But when you listen to the video, she likes it when it lands on others, especially when Google does it covertly.

At least she said this:

Quote

I was having a casual chat with someone at a restaurant and used some imprecise language. Project Veritas got me. Well done.

Imprecise language?

Heh...

Well done?

She should know...

It looks like the Google censorship ain't working.

The grilling below is in direct response to the Project Veritas report.

The Google lady didn't do well in her attempt to respond like a politician. She started out way too arrogant, saying she didn't review the Veritas report in preparation for the hearing because she's too busy. After all, she has a day job. Then Senator Cruz said he's sorry the hearing in Congress is impending on her day job and things went downhill from there. But her arrogance went away.

As soon as Senator Cruz started getting under her skin by quoting directly from the Veritas video about Google wanting to skew the 2020 election against Trump, she started answering each question with a preface, "Thank you, Senator." She then said what she wanted to say. In other words, she said, "Thank you, Senator," before each answer even in relatively rapid-fire questions.

That made her sound like a goddam robot. Seriously. It was weird.

:) 

Total PR fail. You would think a Google person would not be such an amateur and so awkward at speaking in public.

I wonder if Google will now censor the videos and search results of Senator Ted Cruz.

Good luck, if so.

Some more ripples in the culture. From Breitbart:

Project Veritas – Leaked Google Document Labels Prager U, Jordan Peterson ‘Nazis’

Quote

A recent report from investigative journalism group Project Veritas claims that leaked internal Google documents shows a Google employee and a member of a Google “transparency-and-ethics” group calling conservative and libertarian commentators such as Dennis Prager, Ben Shapiro, and Jordan Peterson, “Nazis.” The email was sent as part of internal communications between the Google “transparency-and-ethics” group and suggests that content published by PragerU, Jordan Peterson, and Ben Shapiro should be removed from the “suggestion feature.”

A Google employee named Liam Hopkins can be seen stating: “…if we understand that PragerU, Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro et al are nazis using the dog whistles…” The employee further suggests following through with the suggestion of another employee named Meredith: “I don’t think correctly identifying far-right content is beyond our capabilities. But if it is, why not go with Meredith’s suggestion of disabling the suggestion feature?”

Here is what the Breitbart article is referring to on the Project Veritas site:

BREAKING: New Google Document Leaked Describing Shapiro, Prager, as ‘nazis using the dogwhistles’

Quote

Project Veritas has obtained a newly leaked document from Google that appears to show a Google employee and member of Google “transparency-and-ethics” group calling conservative and libertarian commentators, including Dennis Prager and Ben Shapiro, “nazis.”  Project Veritas received this document after the release of its investigation into Google through the “Be Brave” campaign at VeritasTips@protonmail.com.

Other big tech insiders can contact Project Veritas HERE.

Images of the Google documents are giving in that article.

Now President Trump is talking about Google being busted on national TV with Maria Bartiromo.

Great job, James.

This time I think it's different. I think some serious measures are going to unfold to stop this crap.

Platform or publisher?

There are vastly different legal implications for each and it's time for big tech's gaming of this to stop.

The official hits against Google due to Veritas just keep coming. 

Representative Dan Crenshaw asked the Google dude what education the Google people have received that they refer to two highly religious Jewish people, Ben Shapiro and Dennis Prager, who had family killed in Concentration camps as Nazis. He mentioned that all three people called Nazis--as a Google premise--in the emails, the third being Jordan Peterson, had family killed during the Holocaust. And he asked it in a tone implying that the Google people were as dumb as rocks.

It actually does make you think. Seriously. How dumb are these people who work at Google?

They do algorithms and coding well, but it's starting to be clear that they know jackshit about human nature, history, and even about simple identification and logic.

Say it slow, Googlers. Religious practicing Jew is one thing. Nazi is another. Did you get that? Need some more time? OK... now, let's go to the next step. Nazis killed Jews. Lots of 'em.

Let's give you a few days to see if that sinks in. Then we can go onto something a little harder.

Great job, James.

That was a tweet by James O'Keefe in that post. But the audience suddenly grew.

President Trump himself tweeted it.

Just to be on record, ever since Project Veritas launched its report about Google, the video was removed from YouTube. I don't know if a reason was given by YouTube. 

But, in addition, the Project Veritas account was banned on Vimeo and Reddit for "hate."

There is more, but those are the main ones.

There's a Breitbart article about this:

4 Companies Move to Blacklist Project Veritas in Quick Succession After Big Tech Exposés

This tweet is included in the article with a discussion of each point.

In the comments to the Breitbart article, one guy wrote:

Quote

Facebook / Twitter - Use Gab or Minds
YouTube - Use Bitchute
Gmail / Yahoo / Outlook - Use Protonmail
Reddit - Use Voat
Pinterest - Get a Life

That's a pretty good plan, or at least backup, except for the comment about Pinterest. Internet marketers know Pinterest is a massive traffic source when you learn how to use it correctly. It's even more powerful in driving traffic than SEO or video.

Here's a longer video than the one in that post.

It's even better.

I really like Crenshaw based on this video alone.
