It’s not over ’til it’s over!
Coming up from the underdog, Senator Rick Santorum is gaining momentum like wildfire. Some people are calling him the new ‘frontrunner’. Check out this Google Trends chart from today, February 18, 2012. This is not a poll, but a significant chatter meter of how candidates are doing.
While polls, when properly calculated, are move scientific, it is obvious that all polling is not on the same page. We believe that there is some affecting of bias by the mainstream media. We have recently found out that Media Matters has been linked to access to the White House perhaps for the purpose of generating a ‘consistent’ front on all the networks, just like in the last election (2008).
By God, it’s not going to work this time. The American people know what you guys are doing. People like George Soros, David Brock, etc., are in bed with the Obama Administration to pull together the same ‘slick trick’ they did last time.
Not gonna work. This time we not only have the record of a failed president, but we have full knowledge of the intentions of this administration. We know that the job numbers are being cooked to look good on the surface, but in reality, we know that the real number much higher.
The ‘tax cut’ Congress passed is a bad idea. It’s not a tax cut, its taking money from Social Security receipts and calling it a tax cut. Why is it that Social Security has always been the victim of legislative robbery? We know that Social Security is funded by current, on-going tax receipts from Social Security taxing. Where is the money coming from to replace those funds?
It’s continuing to be obvious that President Obama is secretly and willingly trying to crash this economy. This is the worst ‘tax and spend’ administration since Woodrow Wilson! It’s even worse than the Carter administration. We need a REAL CONSERVATIVE. We believe Sen.Rick Santorum is that man to get this nation back in the direction it should be going.

Google Plus users just got a pretty horrible new feature: search your name, and instead of finding out information about yourself, you’re asked to provide it. Quite simply, Google doesn’t want to give you information until you give it information. Guh.
As Drew Olanoff of The Next Web noted today, if you are using Google’s new Search Plus your World (which is on by default) instead of giving you the results you are looking for, a Google vanity search now prompts you to fill out the remainder of your Google Plus profile. It’s a clear example of Google prioritizing Plus over Search. It’s essentially allowing a social network to hijack your Search screen until you feed it personal data. Your normal results appear below the nag, but when I tried this myself, the prompt took over the entire window of my 13″ screen. Google is increasingly acting like an overbearing second grade teacher. If you don’t share, you can’t have any for yourself.
So what happens if you do try to “complete your profile?” Mine was nearly complete, at 85 percent. I filled out my university information and added a photo to my “scrapbook” (related: what the hell is my scrapbook and who can see it?) which were the only two missing fields in the “Update your profile” window. But that only took me to 95 percent. I tried editing my profile directly from within Google Plus itself, dutifully filling out each and every field, including the really intrusive stuff like my relationship status and “who are you looking for?” (I’m just looking for myself!)
I’m still only at 95 percent. I have no idea what I need to do to get to 100. Maybe it’s some philosophical lesson that represents the fundamental loneliness of the human condition by never allowing you to reach completion. I have no idea.

It’s funny what a million dollars in political contributions, support for the right candidate and a liberal meme can buy you in Washington these days. For Google, it is buying them a free pass as they amass growing power in Washington and the marketplace.
AT&T, while unionized, does not have the same liberal bent as Google. They are more a traditional Beltway player. Open Secrets.org describes their strategy as “Although the company has historically favored Republicans in its political giving, people and political action committees associated with AT&T have as of late generally split their contributions between Democrats and the GOP.”
Recently both Google and AT&T made strategic acquisitions. How they were treated by the politicized Department of Justice makes an interesting statement.

I’m told the below ad is going wide tomorrow. That in itself is interesting. Google is already a power-house on the Internet and, in recent years, has become inextricably intertwined with the Obama Administration. They collect and retain silly-amounts of data on all of us. We know they leverage this data for ad sales, but what else could or would they use this data for?
I have no idea who is actually behind this ad. But, considering that Google is apparently moving into almost everyone’s on-line business, there is no doubt a long line of possible suspects.
More interesting to me has been recent fall-out to a series of articles published at BigGovernment.com that have been critical of Google. Each of the articles has been based on very tangible problems with Google’s business practices. So far, so normal on how we criticize government, corporations or special interests. But, we’ve experienced serious push-back from many of our colleagues in the blogsphere. My hunch is that they are worried that any criticism of Google could negatively impact their results on search engines. Google might be leveraging their market-dominant position to cool criticism.
Which, in itself, is a different, and possibly more important, story. As they say, stay tuned.

[Editor: Will Google use it's power to "push" Obama in the upcoming election? Is this 'love' relationship going to negatively affect the GOP or Conservative and Tea Party movement in 2012? Why is it that uber-rich jerks that made their wealth from capitalism turn against the very system that gave them this wealth? This perplexes me, the editor of this website. Good story from Flopping Aces!]
Despite his populist anti-free market rhetoric and record, the President has a love affair and relationship with a corporate giant. The company is Google and the incestuous relationship pays dividends to both parties but leaves taxpayers out as the third wheel.
Money magazine in an article entitled “Obama & Google (A Love Story)” described the love affair as “[F]rom his denunciations of Wall Street greed to his critiques of the auto manufacturers, Obama and his team have done little to disguise their mistrust of big business — except when it comes to one very large, very influential technology company.”
The relationship between the corporate giant and the president started before Obama’s ascension to the presidency.
Google has long supported President Obama. In his book, “The Audacity of Hope” President Obama embraces the relationship pointing out that Google managers and employees were among his largest supporters, donating nearly one million dollars to his campaign.

Google’s growing influence with government is beginning to pay dividends for the company while leaving consumers and taxpayers on the short end of the stick.
Since donating over $1 million to the president’s campaign and building its online presence and fund raising base, the company has reaped continued returns on their investment, so much so, that Google’s former CEO is rumored to be on the shortlist to be the nation’s new Secretary of Commerce.
In order to pad its bottom line, Google made a conscious effort to grow its influence in Washington by hiring insiders and placing Google executives in the Administration. In a short period of time, Google has been rewarded with over 25 contracts with government agencies including the NASA, the Pentagon and the National Security Agency.

BEIJING (AP) — A leaked U.S. government cable shows sources told American diplomats that hacking attacks against Google were ordered by China’s top ruling body.
The cable said that according to a source, the Chinese government coordinated the attacks on Google late last year. The cable says the intrusions were directed by the Politburo Standing Committee.
The cable was released by WikiLeaks to The New York Times and The Guardian newspapers.
A separate cable released by WikiLeaks showed a Politburo member demanded action against Google after looking for his own name on the search engine and finding criticism of him.
The cable did not identify the leader. The New York Times reported it was propaganda chief Li Changchun, the fifth-ranked official in the country.
