The corrupting influence of big business in marketing Hillary Clinton.
It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Hillary Clinton. The pundits expected her to coast to the presidency, but it hasn’t exactly turned out that way. Her scandal-ridden bid for the presidency is rapidly losing altitude while a more statesman-like Donald Trump is surging. The most recent polling data suggests that Trump is up by 3 points.
Not a day goes by without another damning revelation plaguing her campaign. The Benghazi fiasco, the email breaches and the emerging Clinton Foundation pay-for-play corruption scandal have all taken their toll on the 68-year old.
Clinton is viewed by the vast majority of the electorate as untrustworthy and for good reason. Her tendency to evade and deflect rather than directly address questions pertaining to her alleged malfeasance has not endeared her to the voters.
Her health is another cause for concern. Up until this month, those who questioned Clinton’s health were dismissively referred to as conspiracy theorists by the mainstream media. Her three blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, a concussion, fractured elbow, inexplicable falls and coughing spells were all dismissed as events which occurred in the past with no relevance to the present.
But on Sept 5, while addressing a crowd in Cleveland, Clinton encountered an uncontrollable, lengthy coughing spasm. She then picked up a glass of water and pretended to drink but upon closer examination, coughed up what appeared to be two greenish-yellowish balls and spit them into the glass. Later that day, she encountered another debilitating coughing fit while addressing members of the press on her campaign plane. On Sept 9, she abruptly cut short a press conference and quickly departed from the podium in an attempt to hide yet another coughing spasm. And Daily Mail U.S. Political Editor David Martosko who watched the press conference noted that Clinton appeared tired, bored, half-awake and disinterested to the chagrin of Clinton acolytes.
Questions began to surface once again about her health and fitness to lead the nation. Clinton attributed the coughing spells to “talking too much” and “seasonal allergies.” The mainstream media continued to place their collective heads in the sand but the medical community took heed. 71 percent of doctors polled believed that Clinton’s health was a serious issue that could be a cause for disqualification and warranted further investigation.
Then on September 11, at the 9-11 memorial in downtown Manhattan, Clinton fainted and had to be dragged into a waiting SUV. One of her shoes was later recovered at the scene. Her campaign claimed she “overheated” but weather conditions were moderate -- 77 degrees punctuated by a cool breeze – and the episode occurred in the morning. Something didn’t add up. Later that day, Clinton’s physician acknowledged that Clinton was suffering from Pneumonia and was taking antibiotics (that didn’t stop her from endangering the health of a young child by taking advantage of a photo-op).
Following the frightening episode, most within the mainstream media belatedly acknowledged that Clinton’s health, as well as her attempts to cover-up her health problems, were real campaign issues. Those who were previously and derisively referred to as conspiracy theorists were vindicated.
But despite all the evidence, media and electoral interest, the tech giant Google hasn’t gotten the memo. It has engaged in a deliberate mendacious campaign of deception by steering its users away from searches that highlight her multiple health issues and deteriorating condition.
I came across this phenomenon by reading an article in Sputnik, a pro-Russian online publication. Though the article appeared to be well-researched with graphics, I don’t consider this source to be entirely reliable so decided to conduct my own searches to verify the veracity of claims alleged in the Sputnik article.
I typed four different search requests into the Google search engine – “Hillary he,” “Hillary health” “Hillary health i,” and Hillary health p” and then compared the findings with two rival search engines, Bing and Yahoo, and the results were both astonishing and disconcerting.
Google’s autocomplete feature steered me to obscure Clinton topics and in a direction that was nearly completely devoid of anything relating to Clinton’s health woes. By contrast, Bing and Yahoo directed my searches to matters concerning her multiple health issues.
The following graphics represent screenshots of those troubling results.
The results speak for themselves. Clearly, Google is being mendacious and is deliberately trying to suppress negative coverage of Clinton. The reasons for this are quite obvious. Google and Clinton maintain close pecuniary ties. The Clinton campaign is utilizing the technology resources of a start-up company, known as Timshel, to boost Clinton’s presidential prospects. Timshel is largely funded by billionaire Eric Schmidt who also happens to be the executive chairman of Google’s parent-company Alphabet. From there, it’s easy to connect the dots. This type of deceptive conduct, designed to manipulate the electorate is beyond disgraceful and demonstrates the corrupting influence of Clinton-connected businesses on the 2016 election.
