Forum Post: BUSTED! Justine Tunney's corporate juggernaut employer supports THE SYSTEM. In particular, they support REPUBLICANS.

Google, which prides itself on building a “better web that is better for the environment”, is hosting a fundraiser for the most notorious climate change denier in Congress, it has emerged.

The lunch, at the company’s Washington office, will benefit the Oklahoma Republican Jim Inhofe, who has made a career of dismissing climate change as a “hoax” on the Senate floor.

Proceeds of the 11 July lunch, priced at $250 to $2,500, will also go to the national Republican Senate Committee.

It’s the second show of support from Google for the anti-climate cause in recent weeks.

Last month, the Washington Post reported that the internet company had donated $50,000 for a fundraising dinner for the ultra-conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute – topping the contributions even of the Koch oil billionaires.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute has launched multiple law suits aimed at trying to discredit the science behind climate change – accusing scientists of fraud. None have so far succeeded.

The CEI also specialises in filing open records requests, demanding universities turn over email correspondence of climate scientists with journalists.

Facebook also contributed $25,000 to the CEI dinner last month.

Google’s show of support for the leading climate contrarian in Congress was criticised by climate activists on Tuesday. “Google’s motto is ‘Don’t Be Evil’, but it is supporting one of the worst deniers of climate science in the world,” said the Climate Progress website, which first reported on the story.

Inhofe has spent more than a decade challenging the science behind climate change, and trying to stop Congress from acting on climate change. He has repeatedly dismissed climate change as a “hoax” or “hysteria”, and cited the benefits of global warming for the economy and the environment.

The campaign group Forecast the Facts launched a petition calling for Google’s chief executive officer, Larry Page, to cancel the fundraiser.

Google has been a corporate leader in fighting climate change. The company claims on its Google Green website to be creating “a better web that is better for the environment” by investing $1bn in renewable energy and making considerable savings in electricity use at its data centres.

The company and Inhofe’s office did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

By the way, I'm calling BS on Google's self proclaimed environmentalism. It's hogwash. Just another carefully worded load of PR crap intended to disguise their profit oriented investments as anything but. After all, they did turn right around and support the biggest AGW denier in Washington, a Republican for RE-ELECTION.

Now, Tunney, you disgusting calculated sell-out pig, shule, turbocharger, johannus, mayda, flip and SerfingUSA, at least four of whom are one in the same, I challenge you to FINALLY grow a spine, stop being such disgusting hypocritical pigs and DROP THE ACT.

In the meantime, I'll be posting more evidence.

Like any corporation, Google only cares about politicians insofar as they can help the company achieve its business objectives. For Google this has been a blend of both parties. Corporations don't care about ideology or partisan politics. They just want to do business. So the question then becomes: do you support Google's business objectives? That would be: to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Seems pretty noble to me.

Seems to me that Google, of all corporations, is in the enviably unique position to provide the whole world with the best on-line voting system for a Participatory Direct Democracy. They clearly have the best technological capabilities, the most talented and skilled technology people, and most certainly the best access to money...to make it all happen.

Google could set up a system that would lead to stopping all the senseless slaughtering in this world, stop all the bankster oligarch greed, start 'genuinely' cleaning up the environment, start truly useful education...modern slavery ended...starvation ended, etc, etc., because when people are allowed to directly vote on issues, humanity takes care of each other. Fairness is much easier to arrive at. Google could do ALL THIS, and make a gazillion dollars doing it.

So, 'the question then becomes'... why haven't they??

[-] 2 points by MattHolck0 (3867) 2 years ago

the best voting system would be open source by name

that way the public will have access to it

[-] 1 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 2 years ago

I disagree ... if you make it open source ...it makes it very easy to identify the security systems ..... what you want to do... is make the system and databases openly mirrored and view-able by anyone...

that way... once the system has been breached or simply attacked... which it will be daily !! ...

then it is easy to shut down the corrupted mirrors ... and rebuild the mirrors with the un-corrupted ones ...

[-] 2 points by MattHolck0 (3867) 2 years ago

open source is the security system

[-] 0 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 2 years ago

sorry Matt ... you don't really understand ...

example ... yes open source is great for designing and building platforms ... a zillion minds are better than one...

but ... is the database passwords ... open source ?

in today's security there is much more to protection ... than simple passwords ... data fragmentation ...timing ... etc... all kinds of things ...

if that protection architecture was openly defined ... then an abuser could easily brute force access

[-] 1 points by MattHolck0 (3867) 2 years ago

if people vote by name| no password is required

[-] 1 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 2 years ago

hehehe ... I'm talking about the passwords ( basic security) needed to program the servers :)

The very concept of making a gazillion dollars is what led to such business, government and societal corruption to begin with.

You may as well be asking a child molestor to run a day care center.

A gazillion dollars, a tidy profit, a pretty penny, a nice return, a 'modest' profit...whatever. It was meant to make the point that if Google would help humanity by creating an on-line voting system in such a forward thinking manner as to enable a Participatory Direct Democracy, they would still be in the realm of the profit model they're in now. In other words, they couldn't lose, and I don't think that point was lost on anyone that may have read the comment.

You sure do like to isolate yourself, don't you.

Voting is voting whether it's done online, in person, by mail, phone or carrier pigeon.

We don't need Google to reform our system and no, they would not benefit because if given the opportunity, the majority would vote for considerably higher taxes on the rich and their wealth concentrating juggernaut corporations.

For that reason, it won't happen.

http://www.newsweek.com/2014/12/26/how-google-and-apple-make-their-taxes-disappear-291571.html (Why do you suppose they would do such a thing? I'll give you a clue. It's not to help humanity and it's not to bring about the system you call for.)

[-] 2 points by Renneye (3874) 2 years ago

Waiting for Google to reform our antiquated political voting model? Well, I won't be holding my breath. That was my whole point. You've kind of helped me make that point.

The day that Google sets up an e-voting system for the good of humanity, is the day that we know Direct Democracy has been terribly infiltrated. It's a good thing that Participatory Direct Democracy, when done correctly, leaves little room for infiltration compared to representative democracy. But, as in anything, we'll have to be vigilant.

It's a good thing too, that there are organizations separate from Google that are currently working on the e-voting apparatus that will enable us to evolve to the higher level thinking society that is so dearly craved by humanity.

Voting on-line is the same as voting by carrier pigeon? Really?

don't respond to his nonsense - it is a waste of time. i like google, i use google but we should be clear - google's objective is to make money - "by whatever means necessary" - sorry i was just listening to malcolm. what you do to support yourself is none of that idiot's business- if you read his silliness you will for sure shut this site down. i for one would like it if you did not!

I haven't been ripping on Tunney simply for working for Google. It's a hell of a lot deeper than that. For example, the user who responded to your comment referring to my criticism as 'nonsense' stated that my criticism wasn't without merit. They posted two links and mentioned something about respect for the person associated with those links.

As you can see, Tunney removed that comment. It may have been to censor something very relevant or it may have been just another one of her stunts to confuse visitors of this site and leave them wondering, which is the best she can hope for with anyone who does their research, rather than knowing what a sell-out she has become.

After all, what legitimate OWS activist would actually go out of her way to insult the poor and suggest that we invert our welfare system giving the proceeds not to 'the worst' but to 'the best'? In other words as conservatives often say, 'the producers', 'the job creators', THE RICH.

Damn right she did.

http://valleywag.gawker.com/why-does-google-employ-a-pro-slavery-lunatic-1612868507

Tunney is not the flaky and somewhat demented but intelligent weirdo activist she has been making herself out to be over the last couple of years. It's an act intended to cover her sell-out tracks. The truth is that she is extremely intelligent and extremely calculated but also sold out to Google.

Because she sold out the very cause she once embraced for personal gain, in all likelihood mid-six figures after being recruited by her wealth concentrating tax dodging juggernaut employer, one which became a juggernaut corporation in large part by promoting other juggernaut corporations (this means Wall Street) not to mention a huge bonus of some kind for that stunt she pulled last mid-term election year intended to kill liberal votes while driving up Google stock values, Tunney knew that she could not get away with simply claiming that OWS (Occupy Wall Street) was a mistake on her part. She would have been eaten alive.

Instead, she decided to cover her greedy sell-out tracks by playing the part of a flaky and somewhat demented but intelligent weirdo activist.

I'm telling you it's an act. The ugly and disgusting truth is that Tunney, once a legitimate warrior for the cause did what most people, regardless of their backround, do when tempted by the most intoxicating and corrupt influence in the history of mankind.

She sold out.

Like I said 7 years ago, the lesser known search engines usually produce about the same results. That being said, your industry isn't just about organizing the world's information. It's about selling product, much of which is CRAP (Google glass). Your industry is corrupt like every other. The article above is just one example to prove it.

Aside from the blatant corruption and your own decision to transform this site into a liberal vote killer, there is no excuse whatsoever, ZERO for concentrating the world's wealth to such a profound degree. That's what juggernaut corporations do. That's what your multi-billionaire pig boss does. That's what you do.

You are a disgusting sell-out and I intend to rip on you all over the web for many years to come.

I agree Jart ... Google kicks ass !!! ... one of the most benevolent companies in existence ... Google provides & develops a ton !! of services and new technology for the world .. all for free !!!

I think one of the most misunderstood terms in today's world is "business' ... most people associate 'business' with only making money, earning monetary profit ....

whereas in fact, for an ever increasing amount of modern companies ... their business leans more towards ... creating "Social Wealth" ... earning social profits... their monetary aspects become but another tool in their quests...

[-] -1 points by StillModestCapitalist (343) 2 years ago

So it's now wrong of me to use this forum to suggest that we hold our noses and vote for the lesser evil but it's all fine and dandy to use it to shamelessly promote a juggernaut wealth concentrating tax dodging corporation.

Pathetic.

At one time I made a living operating a nuclear power plant, I thought that noble in its way as climate change seemed a concern to me, even in the eighties. I now feel solar combined with battery driven transportation, but I digress. Around 1993 I saw my first hyperlink and knew at once the world had changed, Google is an extension and component part of that change, I might be so bold as to say from this a collective consciousness could arrive. One could very well consider that to be noble.

This is also very telling. Notice the timing. It coincides with the mid-term election year transformation of this website into a liberal vote killer. Not to mention Justine Tuney's campaign (for show only) to get her multi-billionaire corporate juggernaut boss Eric Schmidt 'appointed' CEO of America.
