All Search Engines are Effectively Controlled by the US Government

Because It has become Widely Known that Google Search Results exclude Any Find that proves the Falsehood of the US Government S Key Allegations regarding International Relations (such as the US Government S Allegation that Ukraine S Government is Not Controlled by Racist Fascists or “Nazis” as It Actually Is and has been Ever since February 2014), Many Researchers have started using Other Search Engines, such as DuckDuckGo, which Advertises on America S Neo Conservative Liberal National Public Radio (NPR) Network as being an Alternative to Google. However, on March 9th, DuckDuckGo S CEO & Founder, Gabriel Weinberg, issued A Tweet saying “Like so Many Others I am Sickened by Russia S Invasion of Ukraine and the Gigantic Humanitarian Crisis it continues to create. #StandWithUkraine. At DuckDuckGo, we ve been Rolling Out Search Updates that Down Rank Sites associated with Russian Disinformation.

There was Immediate Blowback from Researchers who hate Google because it does what DuckDuckGo had just admitted there that DuckDuckGo ALSO does Filter Out Information that the US Government doesn T want the Public to know (such as that Ukraine S Nazis Control Ukraine and are backed by the US Government).

So, Weinberg quickly followed up with “In Addition to Down Ranking Sites associated with Disinformation, we also often place News Modules and Information Boxes at the Top of DuckDuckGo Search Results (Where they are Seen and Clicked the Most) to Highlight Quality Information for Rapidly Unfolding Topics.”

That didn T Quell the Blowback. So, on April 17th he tweeted that “There is A Completely Made Up Headline going around this Weekend. We are not ‘Purging’ Any Media Outlets from Results. Anyone can verify this by searching for an Outlet and see it comes up in Results.”

That Response from him was assuming what he Undoubtedly Knew to be False that the Users Concern was Whether or Not A GivenOutlet” that’s being Searched For by A User will be found if Specifically Searched For on DuckDuckGo. He S Not So Stupid as to Actually believe that That is What Users are Actually Rebelling Against o he knows that Instead they are Rebelling Against having A Search Engine, whether Google or DuckDuckGo or Any Other, Pretend to be Able to Predetermine Which Allegations or Types of Allegations that are Accessible through the Web are True, and Which are False (or ‘Low Quality’). Obviously, No Search Engine Can Do That. Any that Pretend To are Committing Fraud. But that Sadly includes Every Search Engine.

Any Intelligent User of the Internet knows that ANY Censorship on the Web is Dictatorial, NOT Democratic. It S at least as Dictatorial if it is coming from Billionaires such as Gabriel Weinberg, or Jack Dorsey, or Mark Zuckerberg, or their Agents, as it is if It comes from the Government itself – which the User can Vote Against at Election Time without needing to Purchase Shares of Stock in Some Corporation in Order to become Enabled to Vote Against It S CEO and Other Officials. Corporate Dictatorship is what Benito Mussolini Proudly advocated for in 1920 S Italy and called Alternatively “Fascism” and “Corporationism.” That S What we ve Now got in the US and It S Allied Countries.

One of the US Government S Mouthpieces, the Neo Conservative Liberal Website Slate (Owned by the Neo Conservative Liberal Donald Graham who had Sold the Neo Conservative Liberal Washington Post to the Neo Cnservative Liberal Jeff Bezos), Headlined on March 15th The DuckDuckGo Users Furious at Its Response to the War in Ukraine, and tried to Marginalize the Opponents of Censorship by Pretending that All of Them are Far Right Wingers.

More than 30,000 Users on Twitter have Responded to Weinberg S Post with Largely Negative Comments about the Decision, Accusing the Company of Engaging in Censorship and Injecting Bias into Search Results. Breitbart ran A Piece attacking DuckDuckGo as “Diet Google,” and High Profile Libertarian YouTubers have also told Their Followers to Stop Using It.

DuckDuckGoSExecutives have been trying to Quell the Unrest. “The Whole Point of DuckDuckGo is Privacy,” Weinberg wrote back to One of his Critics. “The Whole Point of the Search Engine is to Show More Relevant Content over Less Relevant Content, and that is What we Continue to Do.” The Company also released an Official Statement, which read in Part, “It S also Important to Note that Down Ranking is Different from Censorship. We are Simply Using the Fact that that these Sites are Engaging in Active Disinformation Campaigns as ARanking Signal that the Content they produce is of Lower Quality, just like there are Signals for Spammy Sites and other Lower Quality Content.”

DuckDuckGo didn T Originally Set Out to be A Conservative FriendlyFree SpeechPlatform, Even though Many of It S Users seem to see it that Way.

On March 10th, A Thread was started at Reddit titled Whelp No More DDG for me and Users were asking there for Recommendations of Search Engines that are NOT being Controlled by Agents of the US Government. Allegations were made there that the Brave Browser S Brave Search Engine isn T Censoring It S Finds. However, I have Consistently found that the Brave Search Engine is Just as Cleansed of Finds that are in Sites that America S Billionaires and the Government they Control Black List as is Google and DuckDuckGo. Someone instead Recommended – and it was Seconded – “Yandex.” That is A Russian Search Engine, but – At Least in America – It rides on the Back of Google and thereby excludes Finds that US Billionaires and Their Agents Black List. I have tried other Search Engines as well, but Never Yet found One that doesn T Censor Out Almost All of the Sites that Publish (or have Published) my Articles. In fact, I know that Some Excellent Sites that Publish or did Publish my Articles were Closed Down by the FBI, and that Others have told me that they Received Warnings from Google to Stop Publishing Articles from me. Almost All of the Sites that Publish my Articles Fail to Show Up in Any Search Engine when the Article S Title is Web Searched. Instead, Mirror Sites that Automatically Republish from Sites that Publish me Show Up, and Sometimes ONLY Such Mirror Sites Show Up in A Web Search for an Article from me. You can Try It Yourself (such as by Web Searching the TitleIncluding the Quotation Marks Surrounding It – of the First Linked to Source in the Present Article, “Zelensky S Secret CIA Nazi Ukrainian Government”). Most of the Finds are Mirror Sites, Not Sites that Actually Accepted and Published the Article that I had Submitted. The US Regime doesn T seem to be trying to Crush Mirror Sites, but Only to Crush Independent Publishers. So, Independent Publishers, in US and Allied Countries, tend Not to Last Very Long, because they are Black Listed, by the Billionaires and their Government.

As A 2008 Scholarly Article, “Search Results: A Censorship Case Study”, noted “Censorship by Search Engines presents Even Greater Problems for Users. Search Engines are Essential in Discovering New Sources of Information. Therefore, ACensored Search Engine can Hide that ABlocked Site Even Exists. How can you Know What you re Not Being Shown?” And How can you Evaluate What is being Hidden from you? Of Course, Proponents of Censorship present AMultitude of BogusJustifications’ for What they are Doing. But the Truth is Always that the Only Real Reason for Censorship is to Enslave the Public by Deceiving the Public – to Enslave the Public Mentally, instead of Physically.

Investigative Historian Eric Zuesse S Next Book (Soon to be Published) will be AMERICA S EMPIRE OF EVILHitler S Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change. It S about How America Took Over the World after World War II in Order to Enslave It to US and Allied Billionaires. Their Cartels extract the World S Wealth by Control of Not Only TheirNewsMedia but the SocialSciences’ – Duping the Public.
