Kevin Cernekee is one of a handful of employees (or in his case, a former employee) who is bravely speaking out about the far-left culture that’s being promoted by tech giants, as they work to manipulate the minds and votes of American citizens.
WSJ reports – Kevin Cernekee was still a “Noogler”—Google’s term for a new employee—when his conservative take on political and social issues raised hackles within the search giant.
After several posts on the company’s freewheeling internal message boards in early 2015 rankled some colleagues, he was given an official warning from human resources about conduct deemed disrespectful and insubordinate. Around that time, a senior manager wrote on the boards that he added Mr. Cernekee to a “written blacklist” of employees he wouldn’t work with.
Mr. Cernekee, 41 years old, spent much of the next three years battling Google over his perceived violations and pressing his contention that right-leaning employees were being treated unfairly, according to interviews, documents and copies of posts on Google’s internal message boards. In one example from 2017 that he reported to human resources, a manager publicly asked on a board about employees holding views like Mr. Cernekee’s: “Can’t we just fire the poisonous assholes already?”
In June 2018, Mr. Cernekee was fired.
Google told Mr. Cernekee in a termination letter that he was let go for misuse of equipment, including its remote-access software system. Mr. Cernekee, who hasn’t spoken publicly before about his status at Google, denies that. He says he was fired for being an outspoken conservative in famously liberal Silicon Valley.
“Historically, there’s been a lot of bullying at Google,” Mr. Cernekee says. “There’s a big political angle, and they treat the two sides very differently.”
A Google spokeswoman, Jenn Kaiser, declined to comment on the specific incidents described in this article involving Mr. Cernekee and other employees. “We enforce our workplace policies without regard to political viewpoint,” Ms. Kaiser said in a statement.
Last week, Greg Coppola, a senior engineer at Google, was put on administrative leave after speaking to Project Veritas founder, James O’Keefe, about how the company manipulates their algorithms to favor the Democrat Party. Coppola has and Ph.D. in Computer Science and five years of experience working at Google. He reports directly to Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai.
Coppola says Google’s bias is undeniable. He told O’Keefe, “I’m very concerned to see big tech and big media to merge essentially with a party—with the Democrat Party.” Coppola told Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe. “I don’t have a smoking gun. I’ve been coding since I was 10, I have a Ph.D. I have five years with Google, and I just know how algorithms are. They don’t write themselves; we write them to do what we want them to do. And…you can use machine learning, but you can get the results of machine learning to get them to come out the way they want them to. It’s just a tool that we control. You know, I look at Search, I look at Google News, and I see Google exec’s go to Congress and say it’s not manipulated, it’s not political, and I’m just so sure that’s not true.”
“Are we going to continue to have elections that mean anything? Are we going to continue to think for ourselves, or are we going to allow the tech companies to decide who wins the elections from now on?” Coppola asked.
Coppola tells O’Keefe, “You know, I look at search, and I look at Google News, and I see what it’s doing, and I see Google executives go to Congress and say that it’s not manipulated. It’s not political. And I’m just so sure that’s not true.”
Here’s the interview:
When a highly respected psychologist testified about how Google and Facebook manipulate elections and have the ability to determine the outcome of our elections through invisible manipulation methods, it got the attention of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Americans who care about protecting the sanctity of our vote.
Former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today, Dr. Robert Epstein, testified in a Senate Judiciary Committee about how liberal tech giants like Google and Facebook have manipulated, and will likely continue to manipulate votes for Democrats. He also warned that in 2020, the invisible manipulation by companies like Google will be like nothing we’ve ever seen.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) started his questioning of Dr. Epstein by asking about his political preference. When asked if he wasn’t a conservative, Dr. Epstein laughed and said, “That would be an understatement.” In his testimony, Epstein admitted he openly supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
Senator Cruz read from Dr. Epstein’s testimony: “Google’s manipulation of votes gave at least 2.6 million additional votes to Hillary Clinton in the year 2016.” Cruz asked, “Is that correct?’ Epstein answered, “That’s correct.” Cruz confirmed that Dr. Epstein was a Hillary Clinton supporter. “I was a very strong public supporter of Hillary Clinton, yes.” Cruz continued, “So, you’re not dismayed that people voted for her, but your testimony is, that Google is, through bias and search results, manipulating voters in a way they’re not aware of?” Epstein’s answer was shocking. “On a massive scale,” he said. Epstein continued, And what I’m saying is that I believe in democracy, and I believe in a free and fair election, more than I have any kind of allegiance to a candidate or a party.”
Senator Cruz then dropped a massive bombshell. Reading from the liberal doctor’s testimony, Ted Cruz asked, “You said in subsequent elections, Google and Facebook and Twitter and big tech’s manipulation, could manipulate as many as 15 million votes in a subsequent election?”
“In 2020, if all these were supporting the same candidate, there are 15 million votes on the line that could be shifted without people’s knowledge and without leaving a paper trail for authorities to trace.” Dr. Epstein told Cruz.
Dr. Epstein explains how Facebook’s own published data reveals how their “Go Vote” reminder experiment is a way to get his users to get hundreds of thousands of Democrats to get out and vote. Epstein told Cruz that in 2016, he doesn’t think Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sent out the reminder to get out and vote to Democrats because he was so confident that Hillary would win. Epstein warned Senator Cruz that in 2020, “you can bet, that all of these companies are going to go all out.” He continued with his stunning testimony, “And the methods that they’re using are invisible, they’re subliminal. They’re more powerful than most any effects I’ve ever seen in the behavioral sciences, and I’ve been in the behavioral sciences for over 40 years.”
Senator Cruz addressed how a handful of Silicon Valley billionaires and giant corporations can spend millions or even billions of dollars to “massively affect” the outcome of elections.
Dr. Epstein corrected Senator Cruz, telling him that if Mark Zuckerberg chooses to send out a “Go Vote” message to Democrats on election day in 2020, “it won’t cost him a cent.”
Near the end of the testimony, Dr. Epstein clarified that the 2.6 million votes Google moved to Hillary was a “rock bottom” number, saying that the actual number of votes moved in the direction of Hillary Clinton was closer to a range of 2.6 to 10.4 million votes.
