Dr. Robert Epstein Blasts Google’s Election Interference: ‘Democracy’ in US Is ‘Illusion’

Renowned psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein blew the lid off the sheer power of leftist Big Tech giant Google and its ability to manipulate American voters without them even knowing it.

“What this does is it makes a free and fair election into an illusion, into almost a joke,” Epstein remarked during a March 29 West Virginia State Election Committee hearing on Big Tech election interference and campaign contributions. During this hearing, Epstein elucidated the scary amount of information that Big Tech collects on its users in order to make a fortune and even re-engineer American society from the shadows. “Democracy at the moment, in the United States of America, is an illusion.”

The hearing came in the aftermath of MRC Free Speech America’s latest groundbreaking study documenting 41 instances of Google manipulating its algorithms to interfere in elections since 2008 to benefit leftist candidates. For example, Google was exposed actively suppressing the websites of President Joe Biden’s political opponents during the 2024 election cycle. 

Epstein unveiled his own research that reportedly uncovered Google was giving biased search results that were catered around Google’s preferences rather than the users. Google did not recommend conservative content even in heavily conservative states like Montana, he said. 

“In all 50 states, Google is sending liberally biased content,” Epstein stated. “They’re not sending content based on people’s interests. They’re sending content based on their interest.” 

Google uses its algorithm and an alarming amount of surveillance and data collection to selectively target voters to vote in manners that the Google social conditioners want. Epstein pointed out that Google sends vote reminders to liberal voters at a much higher rate than to conservative voters.

“Imagine this, Google is sending register reminders to liberals at about two and a half times the rate at which they’re sending register-to-vote reminders to conservatives,” Epstein remarked.

He also highlighted that this strategy was used by Google against conservatives in the 2022 Florida midterms. 

“On Election Day, in 2022, liberals were getting go vote reminders from Google all day long,” Epstein noted. “100 percent of liberals were getting go vote reminders from Google. 59 percent of conservatives were getting those reminders.”

According to Epstein, this strategy alone can shift the votes of millions of people. He suggested that just Google was able to flip the 2020 Election, prevent Kari Lake from winning the 2022 Arizona gubernatorial race and prevented the Republicans from taking a larger majority in the House of Representatives in 2022.        

Epstein asserted that Google is able to achieve all of this through a massive and intrusive spying network that it has created through its technologies and subsidiary companies.

“Google alone—if you’ve been using the internet for the past 20 years, Google has more than three million pages of information about you,” Epstein warned. “They’re not only monitoring everything you do if you use Gmail or if you’re foolish enough to use Chrome or Android, that’s all Google, or if you’re foolish enough to use YouTube,” he said.
