SHOW NOTES/REFERENCES:

1.  On Wednesday 5/29/2024 history was made in the Texas Senate Committee on State Affairs when they held a crucial hearing on maintaining election security, featuring explosive testimony from Google whistleblower Zach Vorhies, Ryan Hartwig Facebook whistleblower, Dr. Robert Epstein, and Dan Schneider Vice President Of the Media Research Center.

In a shocking revelation, Vorhies, the former Google engineer delivered a bombshell testimony, shedding light on Google's alleged efforts to interfere with elections and maintain a biased information landscape.

The hearing, chaired by Sen Bryan Hughes, aimed to identify and neutralize threats to Texas's election integrity, including those from Big Tech and foreign entities. Hughes opened the hearing stating, [VIDEO CLIP 1: https://youtu.be/hFJ71QPNmzU

"On the issue of elections and election security, both big tech, and that's a broad term that is somewhat amorphous, but I think, you know, what we mean in general, are large entities which have a tremendous reach and have a lot of influence. This has been a subject of legislation here in a number of areas in Texas and many states. Taking a look at the influence of big tech, large internet companies have a lot of power and the power that they have over the information, what information they allow us to see, how they shape the information that they allow us to see, what they choose to withhold, what they choose to promote, it's obviously tremendous. In an election year like this one, I guess there's never been an election year like this one, but with what's already underway, folks are concerned as we go into the fall election. There are big issues at stake. That's why the Lieutenant Governor has charged this committee with looking at these issues."

Vorhies exposed Google's secret "Machine Learning Fairness" program, which he claims is aimed at "programming the public" to align with the tech giant's corporate values stating [VIDEO CLIP 2: https://youtu.be/HVg41YdSUus

"Make no mistake. Machine learning fairness is and has always been the real censorship program and it is massive. The goal was to, quote, "program the public to align with Google's corporate values." Those are their words. This was a 4-step process laid out by the AI ethicist Margaret Mitchell who has since been fired for unethical behavior. Step 1: training data are collected and classified. Step 2: algorithms are programmed. Step 3: media are filtered, ranked, aggregated or generated. And step 4: people like us are programmed. That's a direct quote from their slides. It wasn't just in one slide. It was littered throughout the company. This process was repeated in a cycle with step 4 feeding back into step 1. This sounds like something out of a conspiracy theory, but it's real. Google rewrote their news algorithms specifically trained on mainstream media stories targeting Trump, such as his fight with Comey. Systems like real-time events, real-time boost, and hive mind assigned higher amplification scores to stories related to targeting Trump. Google's internal documents revealed their stance on, quote, "algorithmic unfairness." They stated that even factually accurate representations could be considered algorithmically unfair and removed. Let me just quote them: "For example, imagine a Google image query for CEOs shows predominantly men. Even if it were a factually accurate representation of the world, it would be algorithmic unfairness. In some cases, it may be appropriate to take no action if the system accurately reflects current reality. Well, in other cases, it may be desirable to consider how we might help society reach a more fair and equitable state via either product intervention or broader corporate social responsibility efforts," end quote." 

He also alleged rampant censorship and bias, specifically targeting conservative outlet Next News Network, which has been demonetized for over six months stating, [VIDEO CLIP 3:https://youtu.be/aeoRqiTBIf8

"Let's talk about news ranking. News sites that supported Democrats were ranked with the highest quality and trustworthiness. Here's a partial list:

Wall Street Journal: 8.53

CBS News: 6.57

CNN: 6.0

Fox News: 5.2

Russia Today: 4.57

The Young Turks: 2.53

Alex Jones Network: -1.56

At the bottom of the list is Next News Network at -3.35.

Let me reiterate: the foreign propaganda outlet Russia Today was scored 7 points higher than the Next News Network, one of the top YouTube news networks in America. Since my disclosure, Next News Network has been permanently demonetized and will soon be bankrupted.

These sound more like the actions we'd expect from a Russian propaganda complex. But shockingly, it's the actions of Google." 

According to Vorhies, who was invited to testify by the Heritage Foundation, Google employs blacklists, skewed search rankings, a "algorithmic unfairness" to suppress right-leaning content. 

In a bold move, Vorhies called for subpoenas to uncover Google's clandestine operations, including the "Machine Learning Fairness" program, blacklists, media ranking documents, and the decision process behind Next News Network's demonetization. When asked "What recommendations would you have for this legislature to take action to address the issues you address?" he stated, [VIDEO CLIP 4: https://youtu.be/1SfBreAepok]  

"My recommendation is that subpoenas would be filed against Google for any documents that have the name "blacklist.txt" related to Google, YouTube, and their news search corpuses. I would also ask that you subpoena their documents related to rankings of media outlets. I've provided a supplemental showing a slide deck, including such a list. Um, that is four years old. It's a bit dated. The open question now is: what are the updated rankings of the media outlets that they have? Also, machine learning fairness is so huge. I don't even know how you would even swallow that. But if you could, like, you know, ask them, file a subpoena, ask them for documents related to machine learning fairness. And that is going to be such a huge bombshell that it just needs to get into the public disclosure. So it's those three things: Machine Learning fairness, blacklists, and their media rankings. It's just the start of the entire... What might be a really cheap way to get at this information is to ask what the decision process was for demonetizing Next News Network. Right? Like, they're very large. And if you can get that information related to that case, I think that that's going to sort of illuminate what their decision-making processes were for that demonetization. Like, they're still demonetized. They've been demonetized for, like, 6 months. So, like, the top conservative news network on YouTube. And the question is: why did they get demonetized? And if we have the answer to that, we're gonna get the answers to a whole bunch of other, like, censorship activities with the company." 

And then Sen Bryan Hughes Takes Bold Action After Explosive Google Whistleblower Testimony!

In response to the shocking revelations from Google whistleblower Zach Vorhies, the Senate Committee on State Affairs unanimously voted to authorize subpoenas to big tech firms like Facebook and Google.

Vorhies reacted to the news of the subpoena power authorization with tear filled eyes on a video post to his X account stating, [VIDEO CLIP 5: https://video.twimg.com/amplify_video/1795973018759426048/vid/avc1/720x1280/PeGD_hhOWB3ngQuZ.mp4?tag=14]

"? I just wanna let you guys know that it's been 5 years of fighting.  ? ? I've got nothing but media to show for until today.  ? ? ? ? The Senate the Texas Senate has finally taken legal action and authorized subpoenas that I'm so happy ? ? ? It's been 5 years.  And now this has come out of nowhere, and I just hope and pray ? ? that other state tenants will take up the call ? and investigate these big tech companies you deserve a democracy and a representation ? ? ? ? in your vote, ? and these people are trying to subvert it ? and ? I couldn't live with myself knowing that this was happening.  ? Thank you for everyone who's believed in me. ? Through the years.  ? ? I feel like we're on the verge of something absolutely huge.  And from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you so much. ?  "

Vorhies exposed Google's alleged bias and censorship, specifically targeting conservative outlet Next News Network, which has been demonetized for over six months. 

The mounting evidence presented in Wednesday's hearing suggests that these tech giants impose their own biases to manipulate and stifle dissenting voices, undermining the very foundation of our democratic process. 

Senator Hughes and the committee have made it clear that Texas will not stand idly by while big tech threatens the integrity of our elections. 

It's time for big tech to answer for their actions and face the consequences of their alleged election interference. 

Stay tuned for updates as this groundbreaking investigation unfolds. Together, we will ensure that every voice is heard and that our elections remain free, fair, and transparent.

As the Senate Committee on State Affairs continues its investigation into election security and the role of "Big Tech," Vorhies' testimony has ignited a fierce debate about the need for transparency and accountability in the tech industry. 

With the integrity of our elections at stake, it is crucial that the public remains informed and vigilant and it is our prayer here that this compels youtube to remonetize the Next News Network as they had for the past 11 years until truth became treason in the empire of lies.
