— Fairer fares for the poor? Advocates want reduced Metra, CTA fares for low-income riders, but the costs would be high for transit agencies. – Mary Wisniewski (DIERSEN: The inevitable extension of this is that the less money that you have, the less money you should have to pay for everything: housing, food, clothing, health care, transportation, education, entertainment, booze, gambling, pot, etc. Of course, the aforesaid discourages people from taking care of their health, complying with laws, getting an education, getting a job, saving for retirement, etc., that is, it discourages individual responsibility, that is, it discourages prosperity.)

— Buttigieg touts military service, wary of overstating role – AP (DIERSEN: What work experience do you tout? I tout the experience that I gained a) working GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $98,198-$127,654/year and b) working for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $82,579-$93,592/year. I tout what learned passing the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my fist attempt. I tout what I learned earning master’s degrees in business, accounting, and finance. I tout what I have learned serving as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor for 19 years.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/sns-bc-us–election-2020-buttigieg-military-20191118-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Like candidates from the time of George Washington, the South Bend, Indiana, mayor is leaning hard on his seven-month deployment as an intelligence officer in Afghanistan as a powerful credential. As he does, he walks a narrow path between giving his wartime service its due and overstating it. He is careful not to call himself a combat veteran even as he notes the danger he faced. One of his former competitors for the Democratic nomination, Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, has drawn a sharp contrast between his four combat tours in Iraq and Buttigieg’s service. And a former commanding officer, who said he thinks Buttigieg would be within his rights to say he is a combat veteran, nonetheless questions the use of a rifle in his ads. As support for his campaign grows, Buttigieg can expect more intense scrutiny of his military record in a political climate where military service is far from sacred, as past attacks on the records of Republican John McCain and Democrat John Kerry show.)

FED SMITH
— 80% Disparity for Fed Benefits Says Report – Ralph R. Smith
https://www.fedsmith.com/2019/11/15/80-disparity-fed-benefits-says-report/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In 2018 federal workers enjoyed average annual benefits of $41,508, which compared to average benefits in the private sector of just $12,075. That large difference stems from more federal workers receiving certain types of benefits than private workers, and from particular federal benefits being more generous than those provided in the private sector.)

https://www.theguardian.com/media/2019/nov/18/new-york-times-editor-says-trump-has-put-his-reporters-lives-at-risk

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The executive editor of the New York Times has accused Donald Trump of putting his reporters’ lives at risk by subjecting them to personal abuse and describing them as “enemies of the people”. Dean Baquet, who has led the news outlet during one of the most tumultuous periods in its history, said the US president’s history of verbal attacks on journalists such as the New York Times’s political reporter Maggie Haberman was “appalling” and risked having serious consequences. “I think his personal attacks on reporters, including Maggie, are pretty awful and pretty unpresidential,” he said. “I think personal attacks on journalists, when he calls them names, I think he puts their lives at risk. “I think that when he actually calls reporters names, says they’re un-American, says they’re enemies of the people … that phrase has a deep history. I think when he says that, it is an appalling attack on the press.” Baquet’s comments in an interview with the Guardian reflect Trump’s lengthy history of abuse towards journalists in general and the New York Times in particular. They echo comments from the newspaper’s publisher, AG Sulzberger, who has also clashed with Trump over his treatment of the media. Last year Sulzberger said he had told Trump in a meeting that “this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence”.)

My Democrat IRS superiors unfairly did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors unfairly forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

— DECEMBER 28, 2018 FLASHBACK: If You’re Over 50, Chances Are the Decision to Leave a Job Won’t be Yours A new data analysis by ProPublica and the Urban Institute shows more than half of older U.S. workers are pushed out of longtime jobs before they choose to retire, suffering financial damage that is often irreversible. – Peter Gosselin (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout that if you are forced to retire, it is because you are a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Jeffrey Wenger, a senior labor economist with the RAND Corp., said some of these people likely were laid off, but they cover it up by saying they retired. “There’s so much social stigma around being separated from work,” he said, “even people who are fired or let go will say they retired to save face.”)

— 3 Reasons You Should Plan for an Early Retirement Even if you intend to never stop working, you still need a retirement plan. – Kailey Hagen (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout that if you are forced to retire, it is because you are a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things.)
https://www.fool.com/retirement/2019/11/14/3-reasons-you-should-plan-for-an-early-retirement.aspx
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1. You may be forced to retire early As I mentioned above, even if you intend to work late into life, unexpected circumstances may prevent that. Your company might close or downsize, leaving you out of work. Or you may become seriously ill or need to care for a sick family member. This could take up a lot of your time and prevent you from working even if you want to. If one of these situations happens to you, you could try to find a new, more flexible job that can accommodate your schedule and talents. But in this world of fast-changing technology, there’s no way to be sure what the jobs of the future will look like or how qualified you will be for them. Even if you try to search for new work, it could be months before you find something suitable — or you might never find anything at all, and you’ll need adequate retirement savings to fall back on.)

For me it is the GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails that I have sent out since 2000. Since 2004, they have gone out each and every morning, and since 2015, each and every evening too. Since 2004, they have included links to more than 350,500 articles and information on many upcoming events.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: At the moment, neurologists’ most widely used test for cognitive impairment is a basic screening exam known as the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, or MoCA—a five-minute, 30-question test that involves knowing where you are, drawing a clock, and identifying a picture of a tiger. The most difficult part is recalling five words that you are told to remember at the beginning of the exam. The test is meant to identify people who will have difficulty completing the “activities of daily living.” Last year Trump took this test. In a glowing press conference, his physician, Ronny Jackson, reported that the president aced it. But a test used for screening the general population for dementia does not necessarily suggest abilities to serve as commander in chief any more than, say, passing a test to get a driver’s license would. Anything less than a perfect score raises concerns, but a perfect score tells the public little about a candidate’s actual capacity. Better tests do exist. Simply and transparently administered, they could help the public know what is really going on with the cognitive status of people who seek to hold the nuclear codes. Cognitive testing for a government job has long been done in the military. In World War I, psychologists developed tests known as Alpha and Beta to assess a person’s ability to follow directions and process information.)

— Police report reveals new details on Naperville Buffalo Wild Wings racist incident – Terrell Brown
https://abc7chicago.com/society/police-report-reveals-new-details-on-naperville-buffalo-wild-wings-racist-incident/5696571/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Reverend Jesse Jackson is working with the victims of a racist incident at a Naperville Buffalo Wild Wings to get corporate commitments to avoid a boycott of the chain. . .There are now threats of a national boycott if Buffalo Wild Wings doesn’t make improvements. Jackson said he and Rainbow PUSH Coalition will stand with the families to come up with a path forward. He is looking for commitments from the company to stave off a boycott. “Not only that the family get the proper apology that they deserve, but more than that,” Jackson said. “Not only is equal treatment at stake but equal access to franchises and construction. We cannot just be customers, we must be partners in the process.” Buffalo Wild Wings said the company has been in touch with the families and the governor, and is implementing new anti-racism policies in hiring and management practices and welcomes constructive feedback. Apologies alone at this point won’t be enough. “Because that would not have been sufficient for Dr. King as it related to Miss Rosa Parks getting an apology from the bus company,” said Bishop Tavis Grant. “We need systematic constructive change. The roots out uproots racism at its very core.” Jackson stressed he wants to avoid a boycott. Buffalo Wild Wings said 22 percent of its franchises are minority-owned, and by 2020 their largest franchise will be African-American owned. The company has 1,200 restaurants, and operates around the world.)

— Customer linked to race-related incident at Buffalo Wild Wings was known by staff for racist comments, Naperville police reports show – SUZANNE BAKER

(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to the police report, a man with a swastika tattoo and his female acquaintance told police they had been regulars at the restaurant for the last two to three years, visiting almost every Saturday to watch college football and hockey. The couple had been sitting at a table for four in the restaurant for about two hours when staff seated the group of 18 directly behind them, the police report said. Both the man and woman told investigators they never spoke with any of the members of the large group nor did they ask employees to move the group. The woman told police she pulled their table 5 to 10 inches away from the group so servers could move more freely between the tables. According to police reports, the man told an investigator that Buffalo Wild Wings employees “had heard him make racist jokes and comments in the past.” As a result, some members of the staff “took it upon themselves to tell the large group of (redacted) that they needed to move due to (redacted) being a racist.” . . . One employee told police “the couple has made several negative comments in the past about black people.” A restaurant manager told police that after the Oct. 26 incident, several employees reported past inappropriate conduct from the couple. The manager said he had been unaware of the previous conduct. “If someone other than a Caucasian employee would bring them food, (redacted) would refuse the food and send it back to the kitchen,” the police report stated. One of the employees, in a written statement to police, blamed miscommunication by the staff for the drama on Oct. 26. Marshall said authorities found no evidence of a hate crime and no charges were filed as a result of the incident. A member of the Buffalo Wild Wings corporate communications team previously said the company fired two employees involved in the incident and banned the man employees identified as racist from its restaurants.)

https://americanfreepress.net/meet-the-shills-of-fake-news/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Considering how many Americans pay high tuition costs every year for college degrees in journalism, or go to expensive broadcasting schools, it is instructive to look at the backgrounds of those at the highest levels of the media. On CNN alone, Anderson Cooper is the son of One Percenter Gloria Vanderbilt and was a CIA college recruit for good measure. Chris Cuomo is the son of former politician Mario Cuomo and brother of current New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Among the network’s “senior advisors” are former Barack Obama aide David Axelrod and former White House Fellow under Hillary Clinton Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper started out as press secretary for Democratic congressional candidate Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, and worked for a public relations firm run by Jimmy Carter’s press secretary, Jody Powell, as well as Handgun Control Inc. Several among CNN’s on-air “talent” sit on the boards of big corporations, an all-too-common practice this author exposed in the book Survival of the Richest. Not only do these positions provide lucrative “part-time” income, they represent a clear conflict of interest.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— ‘Incomprehensible’ Numbers: How Republicans Are Losing New York Suburbs In one county, Democrats grew by more than 150,000, while the number of Republicans dropped by more than 30,000. – Vivian Wang (DIERSEN: If current trends hold, the many Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, and RINO leaders of the Republican Party will officially banish individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/13/nyregion/peter-king-long-island-republicans.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats now outnumber Republicans on Long Island, a once unthinkable development in a traditional conservative stronghold where voters backed every Republican presidential candidate, bar two, from 1900 to 1988. . .The shift mirrors a nationwide trend of historically moderate or conservative suburban voters now slowly tipping left. Just last week, those voters helped flip the Virginia statehouse, ousted the last Republicans in a Philadelphia-area County Council and appear to have unseated the Republican governor of Kentucky. The pattern, if it holds, could prove decisive not only for the 2020 presidential election, but also for the makeup of each party’s base for decades.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: He made his way to Brooklyn, still carrying the stigma of his discharge. He said he had tried to commit suicide three times. “I struggled with depression, alcohol abuse and the shame of my dishonorable discharge,” he wrote. He eventually pulled himself up and started over, graduating from Adelphi University and going on to earn a master’s degree. “I found stability,” he wrote, “and dedicated my life to helping others.”)

— GOP’s small-fry fundraising – SHIA KAPOS and ADRIENNE HURST
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2019/11/12/gops-small-fry-fundraising-madigan-hammers-arroyo-deval-patrick-eyes-white-house-run-487650
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Since his exit from politics, the GOP has had to change direction. The party hopes its grassroots fundraising campaign, called Lincoln Legion, will raise funds the old-fashioned way. Hackler says 92 percent of all donations in 2019 have been of $100 or less. How it’s playing out: The party raised $36,405 during the most recent reporting period that ended Sept. 30, according to the State Board of Elections. That’s up from $19,000 in donations the previous three months. Republicans have $106,369 cash on hand — up from $88,412 at the end of June. The House Republican Organization has $417,006 cash on hand; the Republican State Senate Campaign Committee has $214,986 cash on hand; and House Minority Leader Jim Durkin has $1.1 million on hand. Those are small-fry numbers compared to the Democratic Party of Illinois, which has $819,289 cash on hand. Sure, there are more Dems in Illinois, but the differences are stark. Friends of Michael Madigan has $7.1 million, the Democratic Majority has $4 million, and the 13th Ward Organization, where Madigan holds sway, has $1.8 million. Pritzker isn’t the only reason Dem fundraising outpaces the GOP. There’s been an eroding of Republican support in the affluent suburbs. Call it the Trump effect, says Democratic political consultant Scott Kennedy. “The 2018 Democratic fundraising success has largely been attributed to a higher level of enthusiasm among Democratic voters but the number of check-writing affluent suburbanites who switched from Republican to Democrat in the Trump era likely also played a role,” he told Playbook. “If Illinois Republicans are going to rebound, they’ll need to reverse that trend.”)

That directly resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS.

DAILY COMMERCIAL
— The deep state exists, and threatens our republic – Russ Sloan (DIERSEN: My Democrat superiors in the federal government treated me like I was a deep state operative a) because I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation and b) because I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 when I was 40 years old that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes side with my Democrat superiors in the federal government.) 
https://www.dailycommercial.com/opinion/20191110/from-right-deep-state-exists-and-threatens-our-republic
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s taken the better part of the last three years to finally convince me that there is a “deep state” and that its top priority is to get rid of Donald Trump before he has the chance to get re-elected. For years I have been concerned about entrenched government bureaucrats who serve far beyond the elected officials they supposedly serve. Some of these entrenched government workers have reached a point of concern have become known as the “deep state operatives.” Oxford Dictionaries defines “deep state” as follows: A body of people, typically members of the government agencies or the military, believed to be involved in the secret manipulation of control of government policy. The “deep state” and its policy of allowing extremist ideologies to flourish may be the actual issues of concern. Because a federal employee faces a greater chance of dying on the job over getting fired, it has embolden more and more federal employees to undermine elected officials if their views differ with the leaders we have elected. Had Hillary Clinton been elected instead President Trump, we may have never known just have pervasive the “deep state” had become.)

https://kprcradio.iheart.com/content/2019-11-08-okay-boomer-lawyer-up/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s Millennials vs. Boomers. A young, female New Zealand lawmaker called out an aging, outspoken associate with an offside comment, “Okay, boomer,” and the reverberations are still being felt. She didn’t invent the online meme, but Cloe Swarbrick fired the shot heard round the world. The massive generation of Millennials, essentially people in their 20’s and 30’s, are beginning to give louder voice to their frustrations about the world they’re inheriting. The massive generation they’re targeting, Boomers, essentially everyone 55 and over, were the people who invented the concept of a Generation Gap. They did it when they were the age of today’s Millennials. Houston psychotherapist Dr. Lawrence Abrams says inner-generational warfare is just par for the course. “It gives you someone to get mad at, and we all need someone to get mad at sometimes,” he suggests. The older generation, however, has the law on their side when it comes to verbalized put downs, according to Cozen O’Conner attorney Joseph Sirbak. “’The Age Discrimination in Employment Act’ prohibits discrimination on the basis of age, and that covers people over 40, so by definition anyone who is a Boomer is going to be legally protected.” People under the age of 40 have no such legal protections. Okay, Millennial?)

They have treated me like they took money and/or other things of value from my critics/opponents who have lots of religious, government, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois in exchange for their harming me. They discourage everyone from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. Treat me like I am not a journalist or a consultant. They ended my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership, Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) webmaster service, Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee membership, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership, etc. They a) reject planks in the Republican Party platform and/or the Illinois Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, b) reject the MTRCC resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution, c) focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, d) were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed, and/or e) are operatives or dupes for the aforesaid.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— California’s Board Diversity Tax A study finds that a director mandate cost companies $60 billion. – Editorial (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government in Chicagoland for almost 30 years, my superiors were always under tremendous pressure from Democrat Chicagoland Democrats a) to hire, retain, and promote young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females and b) to make way for them by getting rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.
https://www.wsj.com/articles/californias-board-diversity-tax-11573256678
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats in California work hard to punish businesses and sometimes they succeed without trying. Consider a 2018 law that imposes gender quotas for boards of public companies based in the state, which a new study finds effectively destroyed $60 billion in wealth over night. Last September the state enacted a law requiring all public companies headquartered in California to have at least one female director by the end of 2019 and two by the end of 2021. Democrats claimed that increasing board diversity would benefit corporations. Investors supposedly needed politicians to tell them what was in their best financial interest.)

RAW STORY
— Americans have more debt, need family help to buy homes: report – Agence France-Presse (DIERSEN: I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972 when I was 24 years old. Where did the down payment money come from for your first home? For me, it came from what I had earned and saved a) working for IRS for 15 months in 1971 and 1972 and b) working for Firestone Stores full-time for 7 months and part-time for 18 months 1970-1972. That money also enabled me to buy a new Corvette in 1971 and to pay tuition for graduate business courses at Loyola.)
https://www.rawstory.com/2019/11/americans-have-more-debt-need-family-help-to-buy-homes-report/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The report also showed that more buyers are waiting longer before buying their first home — the median age hit 33 for the first time — and an increasing number are joining forces with friends rather than partners or spouses in order to be able to afford a place in their desired location, the report showed.)

To mitigate the aforesaid, since 2000, I have put together and sent out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.

Weaver is also up for reelection in 2020, and said he will file nominating petitions for another term in office.

GOPUSA
— Tucker Carlson rejects concerns about whistleblower’s safety: ‘Live my life for a week’ (DIERSEN: Like Carlson, I give my “opinions everyday” in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. Those who reject my opinions do everything that they can a) to stop me from putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out and b) to stop everyone from reading those emails. I should write a book about those who reject my opinions.) 
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=79126
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Tucker Carlson rejected concerns about the wellbeing of the intelligence community whistleblower that sparked impeachment proceedings, arguing during his Fox News show Wednesday that his own safety is at greater risk. Mr. Carlson made the comparison while complaining during his primetime opinion program about recent efforts to protect the whistleblower by keeping his or her name under wraps. “The hyenas on television are jumping up and down hyperventilating, telling people, ‘How dare you want to know the identity, it could endanger that person.’ Which, frankly, [is] a little insulting to those of us who give our opinions everyday, kind of out there,” he said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “His life’s in danger? Oh spare me. Live my life for a week,” Mr. Carlson said later during the episode.)
— Meet Safiya Khalid, elected to Lewiston Maine city council (DIERSEN: What if voters in Wheaton’s West District had voted to fill the recent Wheaton West District City Council vacancy? I would have been one of the ten candidates. The following voters in Wheaton’s West District would NOT have voted for me: those who are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, anti-federal retirees, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.) 
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=79083
(FROM THE ARTICLE: During a post-election speech at the Agora Grand Event Center on Tuesday, Safiya Khalid said she has always been told she holds many “firsts” in her family — the first to graduate high school, the first to graduate from college. On Tuesday, she also added a first for the city, becoming Lewiston’s first Somali-American to serve on the City Council. At 23, she’s also the youngest. On Wednesday morning, just a few hours after she defeated fellow Democrat Walter “Ed” Hill with nearly 70% of the vote, news outlets were lining up to interview her. Khalid said she had been contacted by NPR and CNN, among others. The Washington Post interviewed her Tuesday night, weighing in on a race marked by her historic win, the racism she faced and harassment allegations against members of her campaign. Khalid said early Wednesday that she was still “in shock” from the victory, as well as the amount of national attention she’s receiving. “Lewiston is out there,” she said. Khalid, with her mother and two younger brothers, fled Somalia at the age of 7, arriving first in New Jersey before relocating to Lewiston. For the Somali community, especially immigrants who began settling in Lewiston in the early 2000s, Khalid’s election is a significant step. Fowsia Musse, who works with Healthy Androscoggin and Maine Community Integration, came to the United States in 1995 and was among the first Somali refugees to settle in Lewiston. The day after Tuesday’s election, Musse said “words cannot describe how happy I am for the representation we are now being given” in city government. “I’m very happy for Safiya’s victory in this electoral process,” she said in an email. “Safiya has worked relentlessly hard to earn this. I want to congratulate the other winners, and thank them for the fair fight. Together we can all move forward as a united Maine. Best wishes to all the candidates!” Jordy Dushime, founder of the African Youth Alliance and recent graduate of Lewiston High School said Wednesday that it’s “revolutionary that a minority and especially an immigrant/refugee is able to take place in the decision making of Lewiston.” Dushime, 19, came to Lewiston from Burundi three years ago, and founded the African Youth Alliance as an after-school resource for teenagers. “As a black refugee woman, she is able to inspire us, the future generations to strive to participate in our communities and our beloved state,” he said. Rilwan Osman, executive director of Maine Immigrant & Refugee Services, said Wednesday that Khalid’s win marked “a huge change for our community.”)

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/11/07/exclusive-ted-cruz-big-tech-is-a-growing-threat-to-our-democracy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Texas senator said that big tech’s censorship serves as a fundamental threat to America’s democratic system of government by stifling free speech on the Internet. “Big tech’s power, bias, and censorship is profoundly dangerous, and it is a growing threat to our democracy,” Cruz said. “As chairman of the Constitution subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee, I have chaired multiple hearings focused on big tech bias and censorship. We’ve heard witness after witness testify; we’ve seen the evidence pile up of big tech silencing voices with which it disagrees. Shadow banning conservatives, shadow banning anyone who does not follow the political orthodoxy of a handful of big tech Silicon Valley billionaires.” “What is new is the ability of big tech to silently disappear the voices of those with which they disagree and simultaneously and equally silently amplify the voices with which they agree, and there’s no transparency, there’s no accountability,” he added. Cruz also warned that Google’s biased search algorithm could interfere in the 2020 elections. Professor Robert Epstein told the senator during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in July that Google could manipulate millions of voters into voting for Democrats during the 2020 election using their biased search engine.)
