When You Search for "Illegal Immigrant Crime" on Google, It Secretly Changes Your Prompt to "Crimes Commited Against Illegal Immigrants"

And it absolutely refuses to actually answer your query with news articles about crimes committed by illegal immigrants.

Note this is about Google's search function, not its also biased, also election-rigging AI image generation program.

This is far and away the most important issue in America, according to all the polls -- and Google is absolutely refusing to provide Americans with any information about it.

Except the information Google wants you to see, which is that Americans are committing crimes against illegals.

immigrantvictimsofcrime.jpg

Can the suppression of this information be claimed to be just Google protecting us from "disinformation"?

No, David Strom writes, quoting from this article.

Crimes committed by illegal aliens have increased by 95% since Trump left office. That's a pretty inconvenient statistic, and one that could actually cost Joe Biden the election.

More illegal immigrants have been convicted of murder since October than happened under Trump in his four years in office. And that is just convictions. Who knows how many have gotten away with murder, literally?

Nationwide there were a total of 11 criminal convictions of noncitizens for either homicide or manslaughter during the four years of the Trump administration. There have already been more murders committed by noncitizens since last October -- 14 -- than occurred during the entire four years of the Trump presidency. In the three years and one month that Joe Biden has been president there have been a total of 165 murders committed by noncitizens (that are known of). The murder rate of American citizens by noncitizens has risen 15-fold since Joe Biden became President of the United States. In other words, Americans are now 15-times more likely to be a victim of a noncitizen than they were during the Trump administration.


More at the link. Google is also censoring searches about the Supreme Court's review of the Trump persecution, and Mitch McConnell's fake abdication of his leadership role.


WHY ARE REPUBLICANS ALLOWING THIS ILLEGAL MONOPOLY TO CENSOR THEIR ALLEGED CONSTITUENTS AND RIG ELECTIONS FOR THE FAR LEFT?!

That's rhetorical. The answer is "Because they're paying off Mitch McConnell and his gang of corrupt corpratists."

"The MDDS research effort has never been part of Google’s origin story, even though the principal investigator for the MDDS grant specifically named Google as directly resulting from their research: “Its core technology, which allows it to find pages far more accurately than other search engines, was partially supported by this grant,” he wrote. In a published research paper that includes some of Brin’s pivotal work, the authors also reference the NSF grant that was created by the MDDS program.

Instead, every Google creation story only mentions just one federal grant: the NSF/DARPA “digital libraries” grant..."

If you are really interested, you can get a de googled phone and install alternative operatings systems. AOP has one I think and another poster used to take Pixel phones and install Lineage (open source Android OS minus Google hooks).

The stumbling block is that you are on your own regarding security on the phone and you have to use a flaky substitute for Google Play to install apps if you find those necessary. Some of those apps will not work without the hooks that Google has in its official version of Android. New phones are almost never supported by the open source Lineage OS so you will have to get one that is one to two years behind the current tech for it to work.

Are people just searching Amazon for what they need? (Pretty sure their crappy indexing is by design.) Or going directly to the source when they need something? (Buying yarn directly from the manufacturer instead of a craft store or online, for example).

89 Note this is about Google's search function, not its also biased, also election-rigging AI image generation program.

And it's not just this.

Covid is another topic it is impossible to search.

And it has trickled down to even mundane topics that are hard to politicize. You can reframe your search over and over and still get nothing but irrelevant garbage.

This is what fascism actually looks like: corporations working hand in hand with government to ensure you only have access to state-approved truth.

90 I have a now-former friend, an anarchist early computer hacker; he went to the NW and married a woman who works for Google, and when I told him in an email his old lady was evil, or maybe contributing to evil I forget, he totally cut it off!
I could not believe it.
He actually made an effort to tell ME that Google was a force for Good, which no sane person who believes that power corrupts could possibly believe. It is simply not possible to believe that.
I admit I was and am still stupefied to see this man go down that way, it's like watching some guy you know and value commit a horrific crime right in front of you, and expecting you to back him up.

Except the information Google wants you to see, which is that Americans are committing crimes against illegals.


It's not just about crime percentages.
Googly wants to sell you on the idea that it's white middle-class southerners committing these crimes, when in fact any anti-illegal alien crimes being committed are by black/asian/mohammedan gangster types fighting the illegals in gang turf wars.

132 88 Do we know why online ad revenue is down?
Posted by: pookysgirl
=======
Sellers of real goods are simply not getting the new customers that were promised by advertising. During downturns, businesses contract rather than expand by cutting expenses not related to actually buying and selling products such as advertising, HR, marketing in general, DEI, and so on.

The online ad market is split between Meta and Google and much of that is essentially what used to be from yellowpage ads by business. Basically a lookup service. Then there is the more in depth study your potential customers type but due to turnover, data becoming ratty, etc., my guess is that is less useful during contraction phase of the business cycle aka hard times.

Not quite, Brave is de googled chrome. Chrome is actually paralleled by an open source Chromium source code that several browsers use but the specific tracking hooks used by Google are generally stripped out (or hidden if you are conspiratorially minded) from Brave, Vivaldi, and a couple of others. Foxfire uses its own engine and supposedly is a bit more ethical in its data.

On apple products any alternatives can use only a shell (the way it looks) for Brave, etc. on top of Safari code if Apple has not changed that recently.

I think I've seen how the numbers break down. American citizens, of all types, commit more crimes per capita than illegal aliens--that we know of, anyway.

However, if you check the per-capita of European-descent American citizens, guess what happens? And I believe the same thing holds for Asian-descent as well.

=========
For minor offenses, it is not worth the justice system's time to fine or briefly imprison people that simply run away and change their names to avoid court appearances. Lot of dropped cases after arrests.

You have to disaggregate crimes such as pedo crimes, drunk driving, driving unsafe vehicles, etc. etc. to find where a lot of the data is hidden at first glance.

Murder is usually the measuring stick for removing any statistical bias in cases as murder cases tend not to be dropped and police generally make at least a minimal effort to investigate them regardless of the race of victim or perp.

258 "Red Light Bandit" it was. From Wiki: " On January 18, a man driving a car described as a 1947 Ford coupe used a red light to stop a vehicle near Malibu Beach, then used a .45 caliber pistol to rob the vehicle's occupants. Later that day a second couple were robbed in the same manner near the Rose Bowl. Police quickly began to suspect a common perpetrator, and Los Angeles newspapers dubbed the suspect 'The Red Light Bandit.'"

Two women were raped in the commission of several of the crimes, the women being dragged or driven a little distance from their cars. So the court called it kidnapping with bodily harm, and that was a capital crime.

Easy. Youtube costs Google more money than it makes from ads on it. Use Youtube to post videos or watch them without signing in. They have to use generic details about your household that way.

Gmail, ditto, use it for all your signups to various emails from vendors--makes a mess of trying to sell that data and a full email account that you don't send emails out from costs google storage and gives them ratty data.

Use Google Voice for a free alternative phone number to call various places where you don't want to use your real phone number. It costs Google actual cash to the phone companies for a valid number per year.

Don't use Chrome except rarely and for junk searches that get them little to no ad money or usable data like bar bet questions.

All legal methods btw. Use their free services and minimize what useful aka salable data you give them.

It's extremely common to train AIs against AI detectors. That's how a lot of image generation and video generation AI get trained. One AI generates, the other detects. The generation AI is trying to fool the detection AI and the detection AI is trying to correctly pick AI generated images. If either fails at their job, they automatically learn from it and do better next time. They both go through billions of iterations and both techs improve exponentially.

339 Large general AI is going to get snarled in lawsuits as it requires omnivorous data and generates nonsense that can be regarded as libelous and beyond fair use. Matt Taibbi has an interesting recent substack on what he found using Gemini on himself.

It invented articles he never wrote and that never existed in the first place and it illustrated Taibbi libeling a real person in a fake article snippet. So it invented Taibbi saying something that could get Matt sued in real life. Funny and horrifying at the same time.

There's a branch of crazy that's similar to Sovereign Citizens that claims they've discovered the secret grammar that defeats all contracts and court disputes. Look up "Quantum Grammar" if you want to learn more about these nuts. They create their own courts, train people in their crazy seminars, and go to court to spew their crazy on their own behalf and others' behalf.

352 I spun up a SearxNG meta-search instance a little while ago. It can be configured to pull from Google (or not), as well as from other search providers.

Searching for "illegal immigrant crime," the first result is a CBP link on "Criminal Noncitizen Statistics," found through Brave Search, Qwant, and Google. The next two links are "Illegal Immigrants Have a Low Homicide Conviction Rate" from the Cato Institute and "Increased Illegal Immigration Brings Increased Crime" from the Heritage Foundation.

If you're still using Google search (why?), you're doing it wrong. I had been using Qwant until a few weeks ago when they went on an anti-adblock spree. I switched to DuckDuckGo for a short bit before getting clued in on SearxNG. You can run your own instance fairly easily (I'm using their Docker container), or you can choose from one of the public instances at https://searx.space/.

I saw a 1989 study that indicated nearly 200 American citizens were being kidnapped by the cartels and being taken to Mexico. Most were women, and nearly all were never seen again.

Those are absolutely completely biden and leftist mayors fault.

When Tiananmen Square was shot up in 1989 the PLA made sure to use units not local to the area. They tried moving in Beijing based units some weeks before that but were turned back after facing protests and a fair bit of shaming from the local population.
