    Default Who Owns the US Congress, Really?

    FDA medical adviser: 'Congress is owned by pharma'

    Erin Elizabeth Health Nut News
    Wed, 13 Mar 2019 13:39 UTC


    Given the state of things now, it's easy to lose hope. But then you get someone willing to speak out and the glimmer of hope comes back. There is obviously no guarantee that anything will happen, but the small spark of someone willing to speak truth is often just enough to start a fire.
    "Dr. Raeford Brown, a pediatric anesthesia specialist at the UK Kentucky Children's Hospital and chair of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Committee on Analgesics and Anesthetics, has been openly critical of big pharma and the lack of proper oversight from the FDA.

    Despite many politicians, particularly declared presidential candidates, beginning to speak out against big pharma, Brown does not think that anything will come out of it 'because Congress is owned by pharma.'

    'The pharmaceutical industry pours millions of dollars into the legislative branch every single year,' he told Yahoo Finance. 'In 2016, they put $100 million into the elections. That's a ton of money.'"1
    Wonder just how much they are giving? Check out the list below, courtesy of OpenSecrets, a website operated by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics that tracks money in U.S. politics. The infographic below ranks the top 20 members of the House and the Senate that have received the most campaign contributions from the pharmaceutical and health products industry during the 2017-2018 election cycle:

    Contributions from the pharmaceutical and health products industry during the 2017-2018 election cycle.

    Notice number two, Kevin McCarthy's (the current House minority leader) total of $380,350 in campaign contributions? A large amount of that came from pharma companies like Abbott Laboratories (ABT), Pfizer (PFE), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Eli Lilly (LLY), Amgen (AMGN), and Merck (MRK).

    And Brown is concerned, as am I. He said:
    "I'm really much more concerned because Congress is supposed to have oversight for the FDA. If the FDA isn't going to hold pharma accountable, and Congress is getting paid to not hold pharma accountable, then it really doesn't matter who the president is because it's really about Congress."1
    We couldn't agree more. And our friend RFK Jr. agrees, too. Check out his article on this issue here.

    Just a couple of gems we should ALL be aware of when discussing why our elected officials seem to have no desire to actually serve the people that elected them:1
    • Fourteen out of the top 20 recipients in the House were Republicans.
    • Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), former speaker of the House, received $222,070, seeing most of the funds coming from Merck.
    • Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), received $238,289 in donations, with Merck being the biggest donor among manufacturing companies.
    • Fifteen out of the top 20 recipients in the Senate were Democrats.
    • Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas), a former congressman and current presidential candidate, received $171,255.
    • Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), current presidential candidate, received over half of her big pharma money from Pfizer, with Amgen, AbbVie (ABBV), and Johnson & Johnson also in the mix. Overall, she received a total of $151,197 from the pharmaceutical/health product industry.
    • Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), current presidential candidate, who has repeatedly stated in public appearances that she will not be bought by big pharma, has been bought to the tune of $8,500 coming from pharmaceutical companies, with Abbott Laboratories being her biggest pharma donor at $8,000.
    • Richard Burr (R-N.C.) (not among the top 20 senators in big pharma money) received $6000 in donations from Purdue for the 2017-2018 election cycle. Since 2007, Purdue has contributed $170,250 to his campaigns, according to Kaiser Health News.
    • And Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who ranks 12th among senators on the list, received $149,113, with Eli Lilly being the prevailing big pharma company.

    Who spends the most dollars lobbying Washington, DC?
    Oil? Financials? Aerospace? When someone asks who the biggest sources of lobby dollars for DC's politicians-for-purchase are, these are the three usual suspects that come to mind. Some may, therefore, be surprised to learn according to the database kept by OpenSecrets between Pharmaceutical and health product industry, hospital and nursing homes, health professionals and health services, HMOs, or more broadly Pharma/Healthcare/HMO, the total lobby dollars spent between 1998 and 2012 was a staggering $5.3 billion, or nearly three times greater than the second most generous industry: insurance, and well above Oil and Gas at $1.4 billion, and Securities and Investment at $1.0 billion. Is it becoming clearer why the US government has few qualms about unsustainable taxpayer funded healthcare spending, especially when there are so many current benefits accruing to the politicians who see so many billions in benefits from passing lobby-friendly laws now (by which we mean generous taxpayer funding, the bulk of which benefits the healthcare industry's bottom line)?

    Cartels That Run The World (Which, of course, includes the US Congress)
    by Jon Rappoport

    The following information comes from insider interviews with Ellis Medavoy and Richard Bell, two people I interview extensively in my collection, The Matrix Revealed. This is just a brief taste of what they have to say...

    Major institutions on this planet that control Military, Money, Energy, Government, Medical, Corporate, Media, and Education are becoming, more and more, global cartels, horizontally integrated across national borders.

    This is more than a top-down command process. It's organically evolving. Three steps forward, two steps back. There is a great deal of competition among the components of a given cartel, but there is also cooperation. And in the long run, the see-saw is tipping in the direction of cooperation, as these entities realize they may well have more to gain that way.

    I can't stress too strongly this EVOLVING process. All attempts to merely assume twelve men in a room run the planet fall woefully short.

    Instead, over time, people who lead a powerful institution (like Energy, for example) look out and recognize more major players, and in this recognition there is an impulse to compete and win and destroy, but there is also an impulse to build commonality and therefore monopolize the entire territory.

    During one conversation with retired master propagandist Ellis Medavoy, I asked him about the extent of mutual cooperation in his given field, psychological warfare. He responded:

    "Twenty years ago, I would have said we were all operating separately and jealously. Each of us was mining his own contacts and building his false pictures of reality for the masses. But then things began to change. Globally. First of all, more of us were pushing the same holograms. And because communication and travel were speeding up so rapidly, we were working a lot of the same venues. We would run into each other more often. We began to share information. I mean, it was cautious. We weren't gushing with unbridled love, I assure you. The competitive factor was still strong. And we had fights. But through all that, we began to see through the fog, so to speak. We began to understand the effectiveness of cooperating. We would test each other with privileged information, to see if we could trust each other to keep it private. A tidbit here, a tidbit there.

    "And you see, behind us, other groups were finding commonality, too. For example, in the area of medical propaganda, where I operated a lot of the time. And these groups saw they could join together for specific operations, on an international scale. They could push enormous lies globally, and everyone of their class would profit and gain wider control. So I would find myself working with a psy warfare guy from, say, France, or Germany in a joint venture. We would rub elbows. We'd be feeding from the same basic money trough.

    "We'd both be briefed by a team of intelligence experts, and those experts would be of several nationalities. Slowly, I saw a new kind of umbrella structure emerging.

    "See, suppose during the secret lead-up to a planned economic crisis [money cartel], you can distract everybody with a phony epidemic [medical cartel]. Do you see? Leaders perceive a reason to cooperate. Planners become more intelligent and clever. They reach across lines they never would have reached across before...

    "You begin to see the outlines of a much more inclusive future structure. This is multi-front warfare."

    Richard Bell, another former insider, said to me: "People like to assume that money is everything. If you can limit the amount of money the public has, eventually they weaken and cave in and they're easier to control. And this is certainly true. But on the other hand, as mega-corporations gain more power and range and markets, you have a clash, because those corporations, which are now cooperating in ways they never have, as a cartel in some respects, want customers for their products. They don't want abject poverty across the board. People have to be able to buy their products.

    "So there is a heavy conflict. It's a conflict between elite bankers [money cartel] and mega-corporations [corporation cartel]. It needs to be resolved through advance planning, over the long term. So now you have these powerful men sitting down and talking in a new way. Other big-time players get involved, too [government, media, energy cartels, for example]."

    I'm more curious about who "owns" the people who own Congress.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if The People really owned Congress, as designed?

    Donations from lobbyists are nice, but nothing compared to blackmail and threats of prison time, or worse. I don't think you'll find publicly-available figures on that.

    Love your work here Hervé.

    These industries are very present.

    Another one who captures every member, if they want to stay in congress, is the pledge to that little country in the middle east. You don't sign The Pledge, you don't get money and support for reelection.
    It is bizarre, forcing to pledge allegiance to a foreign nation. There's several video's but here's some:

    Cynthia McKinney:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUMt9Lo6bKY
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_VNOk7Wv5A

    There was a video some years ago of a white congress woman being interviewed talking about how she got harassed to sign it, but didn't. She described how her speaking engagement/fund raiser got cancelled and support just evaporated after she said she hadn't signed it.
    Wonder why the multiple standing ovation for the "real" president (Nathanyahoo) came about when he visited the US?

    Anyway something I have been falling over again and again, when narrowing in on several topics. All roads seem to lead to Jerusalem/Tel Aviv lately.

    And interesting how I feel a visceral reaction to even write this. Wow, what a propagandised lot we are. I live for freedom, and this is a huge roadblock.
    Both the internalised propaganda and these political machinations.

    I say it is more pervasive because Jesuit driven and therefor in major universities, sports, military, in the only developed country where the medical industry is driven by a for-profit insurance agency. In that sense, Pharma is nested with the hospitals and everything medical, along with, you might say, favorable legislation.

    If you are awake, you see death and decay advertised everywhere, all over the street and on t. v.

    Then what happens, they scarf your property. Not really any such thing as inheritance.

    It outright owns a vast majority of human consciousness.

    Shaberon,

    Jesuit you say... This is what could use it's own thread; jesuits vs jews vs zionists vs illuminati vs ?
    Who is who and what means what?

    Probably most of the threads on the whole forum could be connected to that one in a way.

    But ok, this thread is about how the congress of the biggest military power is under control of a foreign power and used at will everywhere on this planet. A ,visual , military budget that is bigger than the next 14 countries together. What?

    In 130+ countries this power is misused. That is a serious thing. And, on the surface, the people doing it half-overtly are, or say they are zionists or jews and armageddonite christians as a support base.

    But I have serious doubts that it is that simple. I expect layers behind them, that use them as a shield and even maybe wish for a real ( maybe even in both possible interpretations...) holocaust to pave the way for something else. Just throwing out some thoughts here to see what Avalon says in return.
    But in any case, this capture is very significant. It is the major threat in this world, done by human hands that is.
    Who or what is leading those hands is again something else that has to be mentioned.

    At one point I had a thought that goes like this: A non-physical force ( archontic or whatever...) leads a civilisations in cycles up and crashes it to a point where a civilisation gets up under significant centralised controll ánd has the tech to make machines and computers to make a connected system that in the end can house souls/energy and finally give that archontic power a body, like a large interconnected mycelium over the world and harness the control without the pesky humans. Bam, done.

    I won't be the first with this thought for sure, but I had to formulate it in this capacity on this thread.
    But if this ending is inevitable, then why the wars everywhere and bother to manipulate so much in such detail?
    Destroying cultures and its proofs I hear. And preventing others to get to such a state maybe.

    Love, O.

    Hi Orobo,

    I think you're totally spot on regarding a non human entity/entities being the real driving force behind the nefarious, psychopathic, sociopathic behaviour of the elite on this planet (no other theory cuts the mustard for me, and hasn't for many years now).

    I do believe all the new tech that has been developed/developing (think communication devices, driverless cars, and especially A.I.), is designed to facilitate the overtaking of human capabilities, and yes, to probably dispense of us when the job is done.

    Your final point about why they seem to need to have perpetual war, famine disease etc. got me thinking about a possible reason why the need to do this instead of just wiping us out.

    I'm kind of paraphrasing what you said, but I reckon the real war on earth is to do with stopping us evolving in a spiritually, conscious, more enlightened and compassionate way (also the seemingly ever increasing 'super human' abilities (think indigo children)).

    So they wear us down with material fear and the mundanities of capitalist consumerism, thus preventing we humans from evolving to a point whereby it's beyond the capabilities of said entities to complete their endgame of harnessing our souls for themselves.

    Just my pennies worth ☺

    (Re)read post #2... and check this thread: Global Corporations and the Orchestration of “Competitors”' Elimination[/QUOTE]

    Hervé,

    Post #2 describes an interesting progression. Have you seen anything on how big this part of the pie is, in relation to alphabet agencies/government, (pseudo-)religious entities, and possible others?

    In that question one has to take into account the several agencies within government and how independent they are as a vector to the movement of this large blob, slurping up all crumbs into an even bigger amoeba.
    Like for example CIA vs NASA. They seem opposites at times with both their own (ethnic?) interest-group at the helm.

    Are there in this movement more than one "breakaway" group vying for increased control of such a monster?
    And in what way can these well-equipped agencies be used as a tool for non-governmental industries. Those lines between industries and government are possibly well underway to total dissolution.

    On another plane there is this evolving situation where Israeli software/internet companies/government are mopping up all controls of the internet with backdoors, downloading and storing (and possible analysis) of all data streams everywhere. This has been confirmed in normal media coverage.

    Also see the interview with Mr Binney (ex NSA) by Richard Grove of Tragedy and Hope.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3owk7vEEOvs
    Very profound and important interview of two and a half hours, about data and telephone surveillance.

    All agencies of the most evolved countries are connected ( Five Eyes etc), with a central factor that controls all, if you see what has been accomplished the last few decades( 911 and other terror and actions worldwide) with fingerprints of many of the same peoples and privileged groups visible.

    Since the US is the biggest military power, with a big tax base, when it comes to wielding power. It's congress would be the first prize.
    The foreign politics decisions and money streams is a dead giveaway who is benefitting most at this point.

    The weakening of the local population through faulty medicine and large scale use of agricultural poisons and other scheming, it looks like a logical strategy if one imagines an end phase of a very evil plan of a foreign parasite using, and readying to discard the host.

    Why not build a few hundred internment camps? That would come in handy. Oh wait...


    Love, O.

    "Legislations"?

    A question is, are these different entities who pay and control congress interconnected? I doubt they compete...
    Even mafia bosses compete with their own criminal organizations. Politicians (or their family members, close associates, etc.) mysteriously die all the time.

    When psychopaths are dealing and negotiating with other psychopaths, I think "fair weather friends" is the most they can hope for.

    Monsanto spied on friend and foe alike in several countries to steer opinion about GMO and herbicides

    RT
    Wed, 22 May 2019 12:55 UTC


    © Global Look Press / Helmut Meyer zur Capellen

    The recently exposed illegal dossier US herbicide maker Monsanto, now owned by German pharmaceutical firm Bayer, apparently compiled to influence public opinion, included people from seven European states and maybe beyond.

    Monsanto files listing prominent pro- and anti-herbicide public figures, initially revealed by French media, included "stakeholders in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom, as well as regarding stakeholders related to EU institutions," AFP reported citing Bayer's statement on Tuesday. The company added that it is currently trying to determine whether similar lists exist in other states and hired a law firm for this purpose.

    Earlier in May, French media reported that around 200 journalists, politicians, and scientists were named in the filing, created by PR firm FleishmanHillard on behalf of Monsanto. The list, which covered the personalities' views on herbicides and GMO, whether they could be further influenced and reportedly included a lot of personal data, was initially thought to exist only in France, before Bayer admitted that people in other countries might also have been targeted.
    "[We have] decided with the agency to end the collaboration in the areas of communication and public affairs for the time being," the German pharmaceutical giant said referring to Monsanto's PR firm FleishmanHillard.
    French news agencies and outlets, including AFP and Le Monde, filed complaints to French regulators as some of their journalists were named in the dossier. France has already opened an investigation into the case.

    Apart from the PR scandal, Bayer has inherited thousands of lawsuits over the weed killer since acquiring Monsanto in a $63 billion deal last year. After the latest verdict that found Roundup weed killer liable for causing cancer, Bayer stock crashed to a seven-year low last week and has only slightly recovered since then.

    Well... who really owns Google?

    Google attacks alternative health information by burying Mercola in their latest search engine update

    Dr. Joseph Mercola mercola.com
    Mon, 24 Jun 2019 00:00 UTC

    Over the years, the government and business monopolies, including the likes of Big Tech, have formed a global alliance hell-bent on protecting and concentrating member profits. The price for keeping business going as usual is personal liberty and freedom of speech that may impact these fascist government-industrial complexes.

    The major industries colluding to take over the government and government agencies include banking, military, agriculture, pharma, media and Big Tech.

    The leaders of these industries have organized strategies to buy off politicians through lobbying and to capture regulatory agencies through revolving door hiring strategies and paid-for media influence through advertising dollars.

    Big Tech has joined the movement, bringing in a global concentration of wealth to eliminate competition and critical voices - voices that bring awareness to the frightening future as our rights, freedoms and competition erode into a fascist sunset, all disguised as a means to protect you from "misinformation."

    This year, we've seen an unprecedented push to implement censorship across all online platforms, making it increasingly difficult to obtain and share crucial information about health topics. If you've been having difficulty finding articles from my website in your Google searchers of late, you're not alone.

    Google traffic to Mercola.com has plummeted by about 99% over the past few weeks. The reason? Google's June 2019 broad core update, which took effect June 3,1 removed most Mercola.com pages from its search results. As reported by Telaposts.com:2
    "The June 2019 Google Broad Core Algorithm Update impacted the rankings of websites in Google's Search Engine Results Pages. Several aspects of the algorithm were changed which caused some sites to gain visibility and others to lose visibility.
    Generally speaking, sites negatively impacted will see a drop in rankings for many or all of important keywords or key phrases which they used to rank well for ... The June 2019 Google Broad Core Algorithm Update impacted sites across the web, however, I am personally seeing the most impact on News and Health sites."
    Mercola.com targeted in Google's latest core algorithm update
    Now, any time you enter a health-related search word into Google, such as "heart disease" or "Type 2 diabetes," you will not find Mercola.com articles in the search results. The only way to locate any of my articles at this point is by searching for "Mercola.com heart disease," or "Mercola.com Type 2 diabetes."

    Even skipping the ".com" will minimize your search results, and oftentimes the only pages you'll get are blogs, not my full peer-reviewed articles. Negative press by skeptics has also been upgraded, which means if you simply type in my name none of my articles will come but what you will find are a deluge of negative articles voicing critiques against me in your searches. Try entering my name in Yahoo or Bing and you will see completely different results.




    As explained by Telapost,3 a core update "is when Google makes several changes to their main (core) algorithm." In the past, Google search results were based on crowdsource relevance. An article would ascend in rank based on the number of people who clicked on it.

    Traditionally, if you produced unique and high-quality content that matched what people were looking for, you were rewarded by ranking in the top of search results. You would find Mercola.com near the top of nearly any health search results.

    So, let's say one of my articles on diabetes was seventh on the page for your search; if more people clicked on that link than, say, an article listed in third or fifth place, my article would move up in rank. In a nutshell, Google search results were, at least in part, based on popularity.

    That's no longer the case. Instead, Google is now manually lowering the ranking of undesirable content, largely based on Wikipedia's assessment of the author or site.

    Wikipedia's founder and anonymous editors are well-known to have extreme bias against natural health content and authors. Google also contributes heavily to funding Wikipedia, and Wikipedia is near the top of nearly all searches - despite the anonymous aspect of contributors. Who better to trust than a bunch of unknown, unqualified contributors?

    Wikipedia's co-founder even admits these bad actors have made it a "broken system."4 Why would Google give such credibility to a platform that even its own founder says is broken and overrun with bad actors?

    Google's new quality rater guidelines are a death knell for experts whose views threaten industry profits

    Another major change was Google's 2019 quality rater guidelines,5,6 released May 16. What are these guidelines? As explained by Telapost:7
    "Google hires 'quality raters,' people who visit websites and evaluate their quality. Their feedback doesn't directly impact your site; it goes to engineers who update the Google algorithm in an effort to display great websites to their users. The guidelines give us great insight as to what Google considers a quality web page."
    One significant change: Google now buries expert views if they're deemed "harmful" to the public. As explained by The SEM post:8
    "There has been a lot of talk about author expertise when it comes to the quality rater guidelines ... This section has been changed substantially ... [I]f the purpose of the page is harmful, then expertise doesn't matter. It should be rated Lowest!"
    Google used to rank pages based on whether an author could prove their expertise based on how many people visited a page or the number of other reputable sites that linked to that page. No more.

    As you may have noticed, we've stayed on top of this, even creating a peer review panel of medical and scientific experts that review, edit and approve most articles before they're published. This is in addition to my own medical expertise as a board-certified physician.

    My articles are also fully referenced, most containing dozens of references to studies published in the peer-reviewed scientific literature. Alas, none of this now matters, as the very fact that the information I present typically contradicts industry propaganda places me in the lowest possible rating category.

    Bait and switch
    Different perspectives are essential to a healthy debate of ideas. When our voices are censored humanity loses and fascism wins. Pinterest has banned me, Google has mostly erased my information and many others are experiencing this same censorship. What makes me so dangerous to these industries that they need to censor me from those looking for my information?

    Google had the brilliant idea of utilizing crowd sourcing, providing the best answers to your questions by pushing the most frequently selected content to the top of the search results - a truly democratic system to reward people for sharing information, and helping you locate this information by essentially sharing the most popular, highest quality content.

    My information was frequently at the top of many health searches, because many people like you found it to be the most valuable. But as Google's power grew to enormous proportions, the goal of providing this service to you changed. The goal now is to become even more powerful by uniting with other powerful industries and government to force their beliefs on the masses and manipulate the future itself.

    Crowd sourcing has become crowd control. Google began by giving you everything you want so it can now take everything you have. Google has changed from looking at users as customers and giving them what they want, to making users custodians of their will - essentially making you a host of a virus to carry out their agenda.

    Google has become the ultimate puppet master, infecting people and manipulating them without even knowing it. Their true goal is to be in complete control of all of us, directing our behavior - and should we rebel, they also have partnered with the military to create drones utilizing artificial intelligence to ensure resistance will be defeated.

    This is eerily reminiscent of many science fiction books and productions, but we have proof of what Google is doing - and we cannot go along with it. Google refers to the goal of controlling humanity as "The Selfish Ledger," described in the video below. Our lives are being exploited by Google and other large tech companies, and you have no idea how far they have come or where they are going. The truth is, they can already predict and control your behavior.

    Natural health and healing threaten drug and vaccine industry profits
    This sentence in the SEM Post article9 cited earlier is key to understanding what's going on: "If the purpose of the page is harmful, then expertise doesn't matter." In other words, if a page is deemed harmful to the public, it gets the lowest possible rating regardless of expertise. And if pages don't vanish automatically in the new algorithm, quality raters will go in and manually manipulate crowdsourced relevance to bury the page or pages.

    Just what might Google and its industrial and government/military allies deem "harmful"? In short, pretty much anything that presents views differing from the PR created by said allies, and that most certainly includes alternative and holistic health, and articles revealing the truth about toxic industries, including the drug and vaccine industries.

    Indeed, Telapost lists10 Mercola.com as one of the biggest losers in Google's June 2019 core algorithm update, along with other natural health sites and Vimeo - a direct competitor to Google's Youtube video platform. The article also notes that:11
    "In the QRG [quality rater guidelines], Google notes that raters should conduct 'research on the reputation of the website or creator of the main content.'
    Later they say '... Wikipedia articles can help you learn about a company and may include information specific to reputation, such as awards and other forms of recognition, or also controversies and issues.' If a news style website has a poor reputation, factors on their site could correlate with what Google is trying to push down in search results."
    I will delve into Wikipedia's role in this censorship movement in Part 2 of this article, which will be published tomorrow.

    Google is undoubtedly one of the largest and clearest monopolies in the world. In fact, the company monopolizes several different markets, including search and advertising. Bing, its closest search competitor, has just 2% of the market - hardly a significant threat to Google's 90%.12 Google also controls about 60% of the global advertising revenue on the internet.

    So, with this core algorithm update, Google is very effectively preventing a majority of people worldwide from learning about how to protect and support their health, which is nothing short of an attack on your civil liberties and right to pursue health and happiness.

    I've written about the dangers of monopolies within the drug and agricultural industries on numerous occasions, but Google is without a doubt the greatest monopoly that has ever existed on the planet, and most people don't even realize it.

    The technology giant has injected itself ever deeper into our day-to-day lives, from childhood education to Android phones, to patented meat substitutes13 and health care. Google's internet monopoly combined with its creepy personal information tracking and sharing poses a very unique threat to public health, privacy and well-being.

    Anyone concerned about their health, food or environment and their ability to obtain truthful information about any of those issues needs to understand the role Google plays, and whose side Google is really on. I'll delve further into this in part 2.

    Who are the Google quality raters?

    So, just who are these quality raters Google hires to decide who's who and what's what, and manually rank pages higher or lower? Ars Technica has written articles about the poor working conditions of these raters. In April 2017, senior tech culture editor for Ars Technica, Annalee Newitz, reported:14
    "Few people realize how much these raters contribute to the smooth functioning act we call 'Googling.' Even Google engineers who work with rater data don't know who these people are. But some raters would now like that to change. That's because, earlier this month, thousands of them received an e-mail that said their hours would be cut in half, partly due to changes in Google's staffing policies.
    Though Google boasts about its army of raters, the raters are not Google employees. Instead, they are employed by firms who have contracted them to Google, full time, for years on end. These raters believe that Google has reaped significant benefits from their labor without ensuring their jobs are secure and stable. That's why 10 raters came to Ars Technica to tell the story of what their lives are really like."
    At the time, Leapforce - which was incorporated in 200815 - was one of the largest companies supplying Google with raters. Most raters work from home and virtually everyone, including managers, use online pseudonyms, preventing employees from knowing who they're really working with.
    "To get a task, raters log into Raterhub and see what's available. Some days plenty of tasks exists; on others, a rater might wait hours and be offered nothing ... A typical task takes anywhere from 30 seconds to 15 minutes, and the amount of time the rater can bill for the task is pre-determined by Google," Newitz writes.16
    In 2017, the hourly pay for a rater ranged between $13.50 and $17.40.17 Effective June 1, 2017, Google raters working in the U.S. could no longer bill for more than 26 hours a week, which meant those working full-time (about 20% of Leapforce raters) were reduced to part-time to minimize employee benefits.

    In response to panicked workers, Leapforce founder and CEO Daren Jackson18 told the raters "this is not a change we are able to control," and that the abolishing of full-time work was due to "risk mitigation" related to "regulations."

    According to Newitz, a new Google policy stipulated they wanted to work with employee-based workforces, so to keep its contract, Leapforce converted its raters from independent contractors to employees. It was very likely unlawful to have so many people independently contracted for these positions in the first place.

    However, Jackson told Newitz he couldn't convert his full-time contractors to full-time employees "because Leapforce couldn't afford health care for all of them," as required under the Affordable Healthcare Act. After speaking to Ars about their work conditions, three of the raters were fired by Leapforce, Newitz reported in a subsequent article.19

    Leapforce founder is a former Google employee

    While Jackson claimed Leapforce had other clients beside Google (which he would not name when asked by Ars Technica), Google certainly appeared to be its largest. It should come as no surprise then that Jackson and Leapforce didn't just appear out of the blue. In fact, as reported by Newitz, Jackson used to work for Google. She writes:20
    "Jackson told Ars that he started Leapforce in 2008 after quitting Google, where he had been working on a project called EWOQ. EWOQ is the precursor to Raterhub, though its origins are shrouded in secrecy. We do know that, as early as 2004, Google had a quality rater tool ... At that time, raters were hired directly by Google ...
    But by the time Google purchased the website Raterhub.com in 2012, all of Google's raters were coming from contracting companies like Leapforce, Lionbridge, Appen, and ZeroChaos. Many of Leapforce's raters still call the tool they use at Raterhub 'EWOQ,' though one told me that they have no idea why, nor what it stands for."
    In essence, the separation between Leapforce and Google appears to have been little more than a legal fiction that shielded Google from any legal liabilities for the way this workforce was treated.

    In a subsequent article,21 published May 2, 2017, Newitz pointed out that Jackson had just created yet another rating company called RaterLabs,22 and was in the process of transferring raters from Leapforce to RaterLabs, but at reduced pay rates.

    As reported by Newitz in a third article,23 published December 1, 2017, Leapforce/RaterLabs were ultimately acquired by a top competitor, Appen.24 She also reported that several Leapforce raters had filed complaints with employee rights groups. Two of the raters fired after speaking to Ars Technica filed complaints with the National Labor Relations Board. Both cases were reportedly settled.

    Google is not an independent actor in its censorship movement
    While some argue that Google, being a private company, has the right to do whatever it wants, even if that means creating algorithms that censor important and relevant news and health insights while manually burying "undesirable" pages to protect the profits of its advertisers and other financial stakeholders.

    However, being one of the biggest monopolies in the world, one could argue Google has really become more of a utility (like gas, water and electric utilities), and as such has a responsibility to serve the people. In fact, last year, U.S. House Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, suggested Google and Facebook be turned into, and regulated as, public utilities.25

    After all, if you want to find an answer on the web what do you do? You Google it, you don't just "search." Google worked for many years to earn your trust, but it was just setting a trap to twist that trust into powerful control.

    Unfortunately, even if such an idea were to gain traction (which it has not), it still wouldn't solve the problem, as Google is not acting independently, but rather is merely fulfilling a role within a much larger complex that includes the U.S. government, its military and national security apparatus, as well as several of the wealthiest and most powerful industries on the planet. I'll delve into these issues in part 2 tomorrow.

    All of these "partners" have a vested interest in censoring information addressed by yours truly on a daily basis; information relating to nondrug options for the prevention and treatment of disease and/or warnings about dangerous treatments, drugs and vaccines, for example, or the benefits of regenerative agriculture over conventional farming and fake meat, or the hazards of toxic chemicals found in everyday products and food.

    Again, as explained earlier, Google's latest core algorithm update and quality rater guidelines bury all of this information, favoring instead information relayed by sites that are either part of this industrial-technological-military-government complex, or that peddle the desired talking points.

    It doesn't matter that I'm reporting on and referencing publicly available peer-reviewed research and have a whole panel of medical and scientific experts reviewing much of the information, because the science I highlight is the science industry doesn't want you to see.

    Few are ever going to take the time to dig up these studies even though they're readily available, and thus by censoring me and other online sources like myself, the industrial-technological-military-government complex's task of social engineering is significantly simplified.

    The information I share about pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines, GMOs, pesticides, junk food, fake meat, artificial sweeteners and other dangerous additives are prime targets for censorship for the simple reason that when you take control of your health, they LOSE control over you. By being informed, you take their power over you away from them.

    What can you do?

    I have been writing about Google for years because I knew this day would come. June 3, 2019, Google predictably removed my website and several other health sites from its search results.

    It's a wakeup call for everyone, and now more than ever we must work together to share this information with others by word of mouth, by text and email. We have built in simple sharing tools at the top of each article so you can easily email or text interesting articles to your friends and family.

    My information is here because all of you support and share it, and we can do this without Big Tech's support. It's time to boycott and share! Here are a few other suggestions:
    - Become a subscriber to my newsletter and encourage your friends and family to do the same. This is the easiest and safest way to make sure you'll stay up-to-date on important health and environmental issues.

    - If you have any friends or relatives that are seriously interested in their health, please share important articles with them and encourage them to subscribe to our newsletter.

    - Use the internal Mercola.com search engine when searching for articles on my site. Nearly all major search websites except Yahoo! and Bing still use Google as their primary engines and have their own privacy issues. Then you have sites like StartPage and DuckDuckGo, which provide greater privacy than Google, but rely on Google's search results.

    - Boycott Google by avoiding any and all Google products:
    ◦ Stop using Google search engines. Alternatives include DuckDuckGo26 and Startpage27

    ◦ Uninstall Google Chrome and use Brave or Opera browser instead, available for all computers and mobile devices.28 From a security perspective, Opera is far superior to Chrome and offers a free VPN service (virtual private network) to further preserve your privacy

    ◦ If you have a Gmail account, try a non-Google email service such as ProtonMail,29 an encrypted email service based in Switzerland

    ◦ Stop using Google docs. Digital Trends has published an article suggesting a number of alternatives30

    ◦ If you're a high school student, do not convert the Google accounts you created as a student into personal accounts

    Default Re: Who Owns the US Congress, Really?

    hmm, i just googled "dr. mercola" and his website came up as the second featured website.

    that was pretty easy


    [Edit by Hervé: Right, because that was a direct search on the name "Mercola"... try vaccines or other search keywords and see what you come up with... and compare with Yahoo, Bing or Yandex.
