Email Shows Google’s Bias Against Trump in 2016 Election

A newly obtained email from November 2016 reveals Eliana Murillo, former head of Multicultural Marketing at Google, strategically deploying company resources as part of an effort to help Hillary Clinton win. “[Google] supported partners like Voto Latino to pay for rides to the polls in key states,” the email reveals, describing the assistance as a “silent donation.” This is just one more piece of evidence in a long train of abuses by Uber-left tech giants in Silicon Valley conspiring as willing accomplices to put Hillary in the White House. Coupled with the FBI Strzok conspiracy, one could begin to wonder whether Trump’s victory might have been a landslide in an otherwise fair fight.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed in an exclusive segment Monday that a newly obtained email from inside Google allegedly shows the tech giant’s pro-Hillary bias during the 2016 election.

“An email obtained exclusively by this show reveals that a senior Google employee deployed the company’s resources to increase voter turnout in ways she believed would help the Clinton campaign win in the last election,” Carlson said.

The November 9, 2016 email obtained by Fox News reportedly came from Eliana Murillo, the former Head of Multicultural Marketing at Google.

“In her email, Murillo touts Google’s multifaceted efforts to boost Hispanic in the election,” Carlson said. “She knows that Latinos voted in record-breaking numbers, especially in states like Florida, Nevada, and Arizona.”

Carlson reported that Murillo said that Arizona was a “key state for us,” and bragged that the company “used its power to ensure that millions of people saw certain hashtags and social media impressions with the goal of influencing their behavior during the election.”

GOP Bill Asserts Constitutional Authority Over Courts

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) introduced the Injunctive Authority Clarification Act to stop federal courts from sweeping injunctions against the enforcement of federal law regardless of Republican or Democrat politics. It will instead limit injunctions to the parties presenting their case before the court. According to Rep. Goodlatte’s office, mark-up is expected this week. Recall that the Constitution gives clear authority to Congress, via Article III, to “ordain and establish” appellate courts. The practical effect of this clause as clarified in cases since ratification is that Congress has a check on the power of the federal courts. This is a clear response to overreaching federal judges who have taken it upon themselves to nullify just about anything that does suit their fancy. And it’s answer that’s long overdue.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., has introduced legislation that would stop federal courts from issuing sweeping orders that block the enforcement of federal policies across the country directed by both Republicans and Democrats.

Goodlatte, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced the Injunctive Authority Clarification Act late last week. The committee is expected to mark up the bill this week, according to Goodlatte’s office. It held a hearing examining the impact of nationwide injunctions in November.

If the legislation is passed and signed into law, injunctions issued by a federal court could extend only to the parties before it, not to the entire nation.

“The Constitution gives courts the authority to decide cases for the parties before them, not to act as super-legislators for everyone across the country based on a single case,” Goodlatte said in a statement. “It simply cannot be the law that opponents of government action can seek a preliminary injunction and lose in 93 of the 94 judicial districts, win one injunction in the 94th, and through that injunction obtain a stay of government action nationwide despite it being upheld elsewhere.”

McConnell: Kavanaugh Will Be Confirmed This Month

In an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) confirmed that there will be a confirmation for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. “Before the end of September,” said McConnell, “he’ll be on board at the Supreme Court by the first Monday in October, which you and I both know is the beginning of the October term.” Asked if there was “any doubt” in his mind that Kavanaugh would be affirmed, McConnell said, “None whatsoever.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Somebody tell “Spartacus” that it’s time to make his final stand because, according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Democrats only have about three weeks to deliver the country-saving death blow to the most oppressively constitutional, “least transparent” Supreme Court nominee in the history of the country.

Speaking with conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt Friday, McConnell rained on his Democratic colleague’s resistance parade.

“You’ve said many times that Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed, and that your major power is controlling the calendar,” Hewitt said. “So the question is, when will he be confirmed?”

“Before the end of September,” said McConnell. “He’ll be on board at the Supreme Court by the first Monday in October, which you and I both know is the beginning of the October term.”

Asked if there was “any doubt” in his mind that Kavanaugh would be affirmed, McConnell said, “None whatsoever.”

Grand Jury Impaneled for McCabe Leak Investigation

One witness has been summoned so far to testify before a grand jury impaneled months ago by federal prosecutors to investigate whether former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe intentionally misled investigators by leaking information to reporters. According to a Washington Post report, it could be a sign the investigation has “intensified.” Of course, here at Conservative Alerts, we’re wondering why it didn’t intensify precisely after the moment McCabe was discovered to have colluded with the Obama administration in concert with the infamous Strzok texts. At any rate, justice may finally be served. We’ll keep you posted.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Federal prosecutors reportedly impaneled a grand jury several months ago as part of an investigation into whether former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe intentionally misled investigators about improperly leaking information to a reporter.
According to The Washington Post, at least one witness was summoned to testify by the grand jury, in what is believed to be a sign that the probe has “intensified” in recent months.

“The presence of the grand jury shows prosecutors are treating the matter seriously, locking in the accounts of witnesses who might later have to testify at a trial. But such panels are sometimes used only as investigative tools, and it remains unclear if McCabe will ultimately be charged,” writes author Matt Zapotosky.

Neither McCabe’s spokesperson or a representative for U.S. attorney’s office in D.C. would comment on the matter.

Kavanaugh Confirmation a Nasty Preview of 2020?

According to CNN political director David Chalian, Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) are trying to weaponize the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh ahead of their speculated 2020 presidential campaigns. Speaking on ‘Newsroom’ Chalian said, “Kamala Harris in questioning Kavanaugh late last night had a moment that went viral…Her potential 2020 rival, Cory Booker, who sits next to her on the panel, comes out swinging this morning saying, ‘I’m breaking Senate rules. This is my only chance to have a Spartacus moment.” The trouble is it’s really difficult to discern when Democrats are posturing for advantage ahead of an election or if they’re just being Democrats. The circus in the hearings is either a sign that 2020 is kicking into gear or that it was a Thursday.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Thursday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” political director for the network David Chalian said Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) are using the Supreme Court confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to impress their base voters for a 2020 presidential run.
Chalian said, “This is about showing a fight. That’s what the Democratic base is demanding. I think you are now seeing the two people that are the most talked about likely 2020 presidential contenders on the Democratic side of this panel are Cory Booker and Kamala Harris.”

He added, “Kamala Harris in questioning Kavanaugh late last night had a moment that went viral. She got a lot of attention for it in the overnight hours about questioning him about any comments he had with a lawyer or a member of a law firm about the Mueller investigation, indicating she knows there’s something there. Her potential 2020 rival, Cory Booker, who sits next to her on the panel, comes out swinging this morning saying, ‘I’m breaking Senate rules.

Kavanaugh Evades Feinstein’s Abortion Trap

On day two of the confirmation hearings for SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) wasted no time in attempting to put Trump’s pick in the abortion corner with questions about Roe v. Wade, complete with loaded language [read: lies]. At one point, Feinstein claimed “Deaths from illegal abortions in this country ran between 200,000 and 1.2 million … so, a lot of women died in that period [before Roe v. Wade].” Of course, the truth usually tells another story. According to a 1972 CDC report, the rate was actually 39 deaths in the U.S. the year before Roe v. Wade became law of the land. Kavanaugh cut straight to the core of the matter, bringing up the importance of precedent, settled law, and avoided getting bogged down by Feinstein’s gotcha question. Unfortunately, we weren’t treated to another of her “dogma lives loudly within you” utterances. Conservative meme-makers around the world were soundly disappointed.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Within moments of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing on day two, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) attempted to corner the SCOTUS nominee with questions about abortion and Roe v. Wade.

Keeping it dramatic, the senator from California began with the statement that “a lot of women died” prior to abortion becoming legal, citing refuted statistics to support her assertion.

“Deaths from illegal abortions in this country ran between 200,000 and 1.2 million … so, a lot of women died in that period,” Feinstein claimed.

As noted by LifeNews, in actuality, “government statistics prior to the Roe decision in 1973 show nowhere near 1.2 million women (or even 200,000) died in abortions. A 1972 Center for Disease Control report noted the maternal death rate from abortions was 39 in the United States, the year prior to Roe.”

Kavanaugh Confirmation Chaos

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) didn’t even get through his opening sentence before Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) interrupted him to ask that the hearings be delayed in order to review 42,000 documents. Grassley declared her “out of order” following the outburst, but then it snowballed from there with all the Democrats starting to shriek their outrage about the unfairness of it all for a full ten minutes with the help of an anti-Kavanaugh mosh pit in the back of the room. This is, of course, typical of the left. When rules can’t be bent, broken or circumvented to suit their agenda, civil disruption and, ultimately, criminal behavior suddenly become justified.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Within ten seconds of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, Democrats immediately began to showboat.

Before Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley could even finish his opening sentence, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) immediately interrupted to ask that the hearings be delayed in order to review 42,000 documents pertaining to Kavanaugh that were dumped on the Senate last night.

“We cannot possibly move forward,” Harris said, prompting applause from the audience.

Harris’ recalcitrance was met with Grassley declaring her “out of order.”

Former Google Leader Admits Trump Made ‘Good Point’

Tim Hwang, former global public policy lead for machine learning at Google, admitted in an interview with Slate that President Trump made a “good point” about the search engine’s bias. “The president’s tweet is picking up on a good point…I don’t think the question is whether or not it’s biased. All these systems embed some kind of bias. The question is: Do we have transparency to how some of these decisions are being made?” And the answer to that last question is quite obviously ‘no’.

Here’ more from Breitbart…

Tim Hwang, former global public policy lead for machine learning at Google, claimed President Trump made a “good point” about the company’s bias this week.
During his interview with Slate, Hwang pointed out that Google lacks transparency, a constant point of contention for Breitbart News and other critics of the Silicon Valley Masters of the Universe, including Trump 2020 Campaign Manager Brad Parscale, who has targeted Facebook on transparency.

“The president’s tweet is picking up on a good point, but I don’t take as conspiratorial a view as he does on the questions of whether it’s biased or not biased,” declared Hwang. “I don’t think the question is whether or not it’s biased. All these systems embed some kind of bias. The question is: Do we have transparency to how some of these decisions are being made?”

“After responding to a lot of complaints about the quality of information coming through these platforms, a lot of these platforms — Facebook and Google included — have said that they want improve the quality of information.

NBC Covered Up ‘Credible’ Weinstein Allegation

Rich McHugh, a producer who worked closely with Ronan Farrow on the Harvey Weinstein story, is now a whistleblower telling the New York Times that he was ordered to “stand down” on an investigation of a ‘credible’ rape allegation against Weinstein. “Three days before Ronan [Farrow] and I were going to head to L.A. to interview a woman with a credible rape allegation against Harvey Weinstein, I was ordered to stop, not to interview this woman. And to stand down on the story altogether.” Farrow himself was forced to take his would-be Pultizer Prize winning investigation on this to the New Yorker because NBC refused to run the story. Naturally NBC denies this, just like they denied knowing anything about Matt Lauer’s exploits.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

NBC News covered up a credible rape allegation against Harvey Weinstein, according to sources who spoke to the New York Times and Daily Beast.
“Three days before Ronan [Farrow] and I were going to head to L.A. to interview a woman with a credible rape allegation against Harvey Weinstein, I was ordered to stop, not to interview this woman,” an NBC News whistleblower told the far-left New York Times. “And to stand down on the story altogether.”

“Farrow was prepared to fly to California to interview a woman who was going to claim in silhouette on camera that Weinstein had raped her,” reports the far-left Daily Beast. “Farrow wanted to publish this interview and what he had already gathered, but network higher-ups said he needed more and would not allow Farrow to use an NBC News crew for the interview[.]”

The NBC News whistleblower is Rich McHugh, a 43-year-old producer who worked closely with Farrow on the Weinstein story. He left his job at NBC’s investigative unit some two weeks ago for an opportunity to work for Al Gore on a climate change documentary.

De Blasio: Progressives Just ‘Acting Like Real Democrats’

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio says those social democrats are not novel, they’re just “acting like real Democrats.” De Blasio went to explain it’s the key to victory in the midterms following Andrew Gillum’s surprise grab on the gubernatorial nomination in Florida and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s primary win for a House seat in New York. “That energy is on the Democratic and on the progressive side right now, and that’s what I think can’t be tracked. You know, polling’s not picking it up; the reality of turnout is something that is beyond the reach of traditional polling to analyze.” The shorter version goes something like this: Hillary lost because she didn’t embrace Bernie Sanders. Let’s let them continue smoking that pipe.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said of his party’s midterm direction — including primary wins for some progressive candidates who weren’t backed by the Dem establishment — that “what Democrats are doing this year are more and more is acting like real Democrats.”

De Blasio said that was behind Andrew Gillum’s surprise win for the gubernatorial nomination in Florida and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s House primary win.

“I think you see something happening all over the country, and the reason I say that is I think that is the pertinent reality is what’s going to move people in their hearts emotionally to come out and vote,” de Blasio told MSNBC this morning. “That energy is on the Democratic and on the progressive side right now, and that’s what I think can’t be tracked. You know, polling’s not picking it up; the reality of turnout is something that is beyond the reach of traditional polling to analyze.”

“And we keep getting surprised, we keep seeing things happen that were not predicted and I think you’re going to see a lot more of that in November. You certainly saw it last November, Virginia is a great example in the House of Delegates,” he added.
