How Google Could Rig the 2016 Election

GoogleAmerica’s next president could be eased into office not just by TV ads or speeches, but by Google’s secret decisions, and no one—except for me and perhaps a few other obscure researchers—would know how this was accomplished.

Research I have been directing in recent years suggests that Google, Inc., has amassed far more power to control elections—indeed, to control a wide variety of opinions and beliefs—than any company in history has ever had. Google’s search algorithm can easily shift the voting preferences of undecided voters by 20 percent or more—up to 80 percent in some demographic groups—with virtually no one knowing they are being manipulated, according to experiments I conducted recently with Ronald E. Robertson.


Presidential candidate 'Deez Nuts' is an Iowa 15-year-old

Deez NutsThe 15-year-old Iowa boy behind the presidential campaign of "Deez Nuts" said he plans to take his practical joke "as far as America wants to take it."

Brady Olson, a Wallingford teenager whose identity as Deez Nuts was confirmed by a tweet from his father, told Rolling Stone magazine he is a 15-year-old incoming high school sophomore with "no day job, no kids, no marriage."


Mike Huckabee blunders his way through Israel press conference

Mike Huckabee in IsraelRepublican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee delivered a confused and garbled press conference in Jerusalem during a brief campaign stop, which included a controversial fundraising visit to a settlement in the occupied Palestinian territories.

At times taking positions to the right of Israel’s government, the former governor of Arkansas at one stage described Russia as the “Soviet Union” – when referring to its plans to supply Iran with S-300 anti-aircraft missiles – before correcting himself.


Scott Walker's immigration policies cause fear in Wisconsin's dairyland

Scott Walker immigrant policyBruenig’s employees look much like the rest of the labor force powering Wisconsin’s $43.4 billion dairy industry, more than 40 percent of which is made up of immigrants, according to a conservative estimate from a 2009 University of Wisconsin-Madison study. Many of them — like Sancristobal and Gonzalez — are undocumented.

The importance of immigrant labor to dairy may come as a surprise to some who have followed Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s trajectory on the issue as he’s gone from a swing state governor to a 2016 presidential contender.  Critics say Walker’s rightward drift reflects a tendency to capitulate to the whims of the Republican party’s base, particularly on social issues, no matter what the realities on the ground may be.


How Anti-Obama Zealots Went Off Rails on Iran Deal

ObamaThe campaign against President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal tends toward the apocalyptic even when it’s in repose. Right now it’s virtually jumping the rails, plunging into a swamp of anti-Obama conspiracy theory, with a gaggle of conservative pundits openly accusing the president of anti-Semitism.

The charge has been a staple of the extreme far right since Obama first began his White House bid in 2007. Until recent weeks, though, it wasn’t common in the mainstream. Now it’s spreading like a chemical spill in a coal miner’s backyard creek.


Jeb Bush Is Even Nuttier Than Trump Now

Bush's revisionist historyDonald Trump’s remarks about Megyn Kelly still make him the most vulgar of the Republican presidential candidates.  But he is no longer the nuttiest.

That distinction was claimed by Jeb Bush in a speech at the Reagan Library, when he declared that President Obama and Hillary Clinton are to blame for the rise of ISIS.

Jeb being the brother of the guy who used 9/11 as a pretext to invade Iraq in the first place, a venture that then-Senator Barack Obama opposed.


Black Lives Matter protesters disrupt Jeb Bush campaign stop

BLM disrupt Bush speechRepublican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush abruptly ended a campaign stop Wednesday as Black Lives Matter activists clashed with the candidate's supporters, marking the fourth time in recent weeks the grassroots movement has interrupted candidates on the 2016 election trail.

The stop in North Las Vegas quickly ended after members of a group began chanting "Black Lives Matter." Responding to a question about racial disparity in the criminal justice system, Bush said, "we have serious problems and these problems have gotten worse in the last few years. Communities, people no longer trust the basic institutions in our society that they need to trust to create, to make things work."
