Big Tech vs Trump: How Apple, Twitter, Google, & Instagram Collude to defeat GOP Nominee

by Liz Crokin | Observer.com  |  published on August 12, 2016


My dad always told me that conservative candidates have to work twice as hard as their liberal opponents to win elections because they’re fighting two opponents: the Democratic Party and the media.

The usual suspects from left-leaning major media outlets like The New York Times, MSNBC, CNN and even entertainment networks are doing everything in their power to ensure a Clinton victory. Look no further than to Wolf Blitzer mincing around and drinking wine at the Democratic convention, celebrating Hillary’s nomination. But the propaganda skewing this election runs much deeper than just the media: our iPhones, iPads, social media networks, Google and even video games are all in the tank for Hillary Clinton—and it’s chilling.

I began looking into how strong the bias and censorship runs in these forums after I did an interview on the pro-Trump podcast, MAGAPod. The show’s host, Mark Hammond, was disappointed Apple wouldn’t run his show without an “explicit” warning. Hammond’s podcast didn’t contain content that would be deemed explicit under Apple’s policy, and most other shows in the News & Politics category aren’t labeled as such.

On June 18, Hammond talked to Sandra, a representative from Apple. She explained that, since the description of his show is pro-Trump, his show is explicit in nature—because the subject matter is Donald Trump. So, an Apple employee concluded the Republican presidential candidate is explicit.

iTunes has dozens of podcasts discussing Osama Bin Laden and Adolf Hitler—none of which is marked explicit. I encouraged Hammond to contact Apple again, via email to their podcast support team. Within 48 hours he received a response from “Tim,” who informed Hammond that his podcast would be updated to “clean” within 24 hours.

    These people should be arrested and water boarded.

    Disagree. He wants Sharia law. I find that unacceptable. My guy beat out so many contenders by voters. Every one of them more competent, effective and more organized than the inept Hillary. Lock her up.

  • I Seigel

    For such a successful businessman and a tough-talking straight-shooter, and for a Republican party who constantly criticizes freeloaders and whiners, Trump and the GOP certainly are doing a whole lot of whining about why things are so unfair. It’s always someone else that’s to blame, isn’t it? Not Trump’s responsibility. And not the voters that support him. You all sound SO much like the Black Lives Matters people, always blaming other people for problems of your own making. Maybe after Trump goes down in flames, the GOP will rename itself the Whiners and Crybabies Party.

    Just who do these self righteous people think they are to determine what is best for everyone else??? I listen to God not a** holes.

    When I said early in the primaries that this would be the dirtiest election in history even I had no idea how bad it was and is.No need to Snoops this….Channel 12 in Beaumont Texas did the reporting.

    This is true. Go to channel 12 Beaumont Texas. It happened on Jan 6,2016.

    This is for real . Story appears on Beaumont TV station Channel 12

    According to the Beaumont newspaper and reports from a
    couple of Beaumont TV stations this really happened.

    Subject: Hillary in Beaumont, Texas – Got to read this!!

    Hillary Clinton made a campaign
    stop yesterday in Beaumont, Texas. Only six people were
    there to greet her. Her security detail outnumbered her
    supporters by quite a bit. She wouldn’t talk, wave to or
    even acknowledge those there to greet her. As bad as that
    is, it’s not the real story here. The real story is who
    she took a private meeting with. After landing, Clinton
    headed off to a fundraiser in West Beaumont, where she was
    greeted by around 150-200 Muslims, most of whom were of
    Pakistani origin. The event was held by Pakistani
    businessman Tahir Javed and Hillary raised approximately
    $500,000 by pandering to Muslims, making it “one of the
    top five private fundraisers Clinton has had in this
    country.” She’s bought and paid for by
    them. Spread this far and wide. You will
    not see it on national news but this is what is going
    on. Shelia Jackson Lee was there as well.

    The problem is after reading other articles on the internet, it seems that many of these companies have become LGBT supporters and the Republican platform is for marriage between man and women while the Democratic platform is all for homosexuality. These big companies are being caught by their democratic or progressive leanings and giving into the LGBT party and thus their pronouncement of Donald Trump being “explicit in nature” thus saying Donald Trump is dirty in nature. If anybody is dirty in nature it is the LGBT party that these companies are supporting.

    • calhar

      Even shame is a dirty word for those people.

      • Original Anna

        Yes, I sure agree with you, thanks.

  • Bill7360

    One of Trump’s campaign promises is to bring back the American Manufacturing and create millions of jobs. Apple, Microsoft, Twitter, and social media outsource their work to South East Asia, Mexico and South America.
    These companies have made $Billions with cheap labor and do not want these jobs to return to the U.S. In addition, the U.S has the highest Corporate Tax in the world. No incentive to manufacture jobs here. Our Government keeps that tax high to insure the jobs don’t come back. This will be difficult but not impossible for Trump to reverse all this corruption. Is anyone foolish enoughh to think Hillary will change the statur quo!! Ha!

  • bobnstuff

    These are all private companies who know just how bad Trump is and are doing everything in their power to stop him. Free speech. If you don’t like it do don’t business with them. I stopped buying anything advertised on Rush or Glenn’s shows years ago. It’s your choice.

      Donald “The Fraud” Trump will never be President of the United States, he never even intended to be President. His finances are in such bad shape he just saw a campaign for the Presidency as a way to make easy money. So far the only money spent on advertising has been from outside groups, not one dollar from the Trump Campaign, according to an article by Mark Murray “ Clinton Campaign Now Outspending Trump on Ads — $52 Million to 0”

      Trump the consummate con artist has bamboozled many Americans into donating to his campaign. Donald “The Fraud” Trump is trying to pull off the best grift ever, of all time: After your supporters willingly give you their money, you don’t have to give it back. His refusal to not release his tax forms, until after the election, just means he never intended to release them. He has always known that he will never win the White House, that is why he continues to damage his own campaign. Trump is in it just for the money.US Banks are unwilling to loan him money because of all his bankruptcies, so he has gone overseas for loans. Perhaps all his fawning over Putin is because that is where Trump received his loans.

      • Catnip

        Your information is laughable.
        She spends $52 million and remains only a couple points above. Pretty amazing waste of money.

        • Rick2101

          Facts are facts, Donald “The Fraud Trump” is keeping all his campaign money for himself, while laughing at all the donors.

          • Catnip

            Lol

          • Rick2101

            So is Donald “The Fraud” Trump.

          • Catnip

            Ok so give it up – you can’t ruffle me.
            I’m a happy with my candidate, myself and my life.

      • Congilio

        And for the biggest con artist which is Clinton, how many dumb-found Dem. donated money? The Dem. are like the walking dead, with no brains to see that Killery will destroy this Nation. With Killery, higher taxes, more lies, more crimes, destroying our way of life, our children and grandchildren will be in danger. I guess all the parents that are Dem. don’t care if their children live or die. But of course, most Dem. are on some form of drugs, so it’s easy for Killery to con the walking dead.

      • Nina814

        It’s amazing how well informed you are! They must have paid good money to fabricate and write all these lies. You’re really smart, aren’t you?

  • Askjrsk

    Sure tired of listening to Candidate Donald Trump being slandered. One frumpy unprofessional news caster, which is not unusual, saying “just when we were numbed comes new shocking statements.” A history professor passes all the dangers of Hillary Clintons past history to pompously call Mr. Trump dangerous. As if he was the one who had the terrorist father supporting him at his campaign. CONVULUTED. One must turn off these folks with Mad Cow and Hoof and Mouth Disease as their propaganda and indoctrination, manipulation and control is so rampant.

    • bobnstuff

      The father of a terrorist who himself has done or said nothing wrong beats having a racist like Duke actively supporting your guy.

      • clem

        How many “mysterious” deaths are tied to the Clinton’s? That is Not counting the four confirmed in Benghazi.IF you open your eyes, do you see the inside of your rectum?

        • bobnstuff

          How many deaths did The “Don” Trump have committed by the Mob for him. How many people died because of his money laundering? You hero is a dirty as they come. How many people became homeless because of his great business practices? In his case you will just say it’s just business.

          • Carl Lewis

            Zerp!

          • clem

            Didn’t answer the question. Typical response.

          • bobnstuff

            No one has spent 12 million dollars creating stories about The “Don” Trump. Trump hasn’t had 30 years of the right wing media generating lies about him. We do know of three deaths thanks to Trump.

          • clem

            Then you better contact the justice department so YOU won’t get in trouble for withholding this vital information. (Still didn’t answer the first question did you? The information is not that hard to look up).

          • Ken Richardson

            He is an idiot and slave. He cannot tell the truth or his master will make him get on his knees.

          • Nina814

            They must have paid you pretty good money to make up and write all this trash. Like the father of the terrorist who killed 49 people at the Pulse who got paid to seat behind Hillary in the Orlando rally. Pathetic POS!

          • calhar

            You are exagerating bobup.Did you have a nightmare??

      • Ken Richardson

        Please explain how he is racist? You are confused and misinformed. Hillary’s way is against women. Trumps is like our laws state – to protect Americans. Why are you of such low information on something so important? Do you not care about you or your family and their future?

          http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/27/us/politics/david-duke-donald-trump.html?_r=0
          This the man behind Trump. Now until Trump started his campaign for president did he ever do anything for the little guy, the common man other then try to see how much money he could get out of them. Did he support improved housing for the lower income people? What cause did he invest his time and name in? Don’t come back with Hillary stuff, show me his actions, his deeds that make me believe he understands the need of the American people. Show me what he has done on the large scale of everything else he does. He raised money for the Vets but sat on it until the media made him write checks. This is the guy you believe cares about your needs? Here are facts about the Great and powerful Trump. He has imported foreign workers to the tone of 1,100. He employed illegals on his construction jobs as late as last year. He imports his product lines. He really cares about your job. He tells steelworkers he will bring their jobs back but he is clueless as to where they went and why. Those steel mills that darkened the skies of places like Pittsburgh are long gone from the industry, we don’t make steel that way anymore. When they closed down the Homestead Works in Pittsburgh they replaced it with a modern electric furnace at what is now called the Mon Valley works, it uses a lot less workers and can make the kind of steel we use today. Trump doesn’t understand manufacturing and is making promises he can’t keep. In other words he is lying to the people who need his help to get their vote. If I’m wrong about Trump show me what he has done, don’t just complain about Clinton.

      • Original Anna

        Where is Duke actively supporting Trump. The two never met and when asked by a reporter what do you think of our candidates, Duke said he preferred Trump. Trump’s attitude is Duke can vote for whoever he wants. Duke hasn’t been at any rallys or doing anything for Trump. It was the media making something of the reporter’s question and Duke’s answer to the reporter. See how you got taken in by the media.

        • bobnstuff
          • Original Anna

            I read both articles and the thewrap one is about some wizard in the kkk not duke. The first article is about duke saying on a radio program he apparently has that he encourages people to prefer Trump as he does and not Hillary. He says he prefers not endorses. Duke lives in a free country and prefers the candidate he prefers and encourages others to do so also. He still hasn’t been at any Trump rallies or been acknowledged by Trump as a friend or anything else. Duke is not involved in any campaigns for Trump. What Duke says on his radio program is his right as it is his program and if his listeners don’t like what Duke says he won’t have a program for very long and since he still does, I am assuming his listeners like Duke prefering Trump. I sure prefer Trump, even though I am a female, if I am going to vote for a female, it is not going to be Hillary who thinks it is all right for taxpayers to pay for babies being tortured to death thus making us taxpayers implicent in murdering babies. And just because she says it is legal and she supports it as women’s health doesn’t make it women’s health when it is murdering a baby swimming around in what the baby thinks is a safe place in his mother’s womb. Legal doesn’t make it ethical or moral or right. So, I prefer and endorse Trump for my reasons, Duke prefers (but not endorses) Trump for his reasons but Trump and I still do not know each other and neither does Duke and Trump know each other.

    God bless and promote Donald Trump and powerfully and thoroughly expose who Hillary Clinton is and the vile evil things she has done – so that she will be defeated on Nov. 8th.

    All conservatives should boycott all these companies for being Explicit.Don’t buy Apple or Macy’s. Any of these so called UnAmerican Companies.Boycott any company that support’s the communist regime also known as The Democratic Party.

    • Mary

      original ancestry.. I already did that, I wish I knew how to get my computer and email off Google, they are getting to be aliens anymore, do/join nothing good, everybody in this country anymore are becoming communistic I think.

      • Worried Vet

        Google has to much control in our lives. Their software is everywhere online, on our computers even on apps. You just about have to have a google account to get free apps and pay software. It’s outrageous to me and if you think young people will boycott well it’s not going to happen with any large numbers. I have wondered now for years as I watch the power and control of google grow. Have they planned this with liberals to brainwash and control young people and their kids? I remember when Microsoft was sued because they had a huge market for IE. They were forced to stop putting their software in new computers. Now it’s supposed to be a shared market for browser’s but it’s all google on any computer on the main page. Any conspiracy theory has been hard for me to believe, but the more I see the more I wonder. It’s just to much happening at once with to much in common not to have some truth to it. Maybe much more than most conspiracy theorists believe now.

  • gerald Hughes

    Right after Trump takes office, we will be looking for ways and means to put a stop to the liberal dem bloodsucker colluders.

    • PatriciaJ

      Trump taking office? Ha ha ha ha ha. You are delusional.

      • Phil Esposito

        I believe you are the delusional one. Go Trump.

      • Ken Richardson

        Please tell why you would vote for a criminal and killer? She has no accomplishments and he is a rapist and was impeached as president. Do you not have any integrity or morals? Common sense would tell you that is a disaster.
