GOOGLE CEO TELLS SENATORS THAT CENSORED CHINESE SEARCH ENGINE COULD PROVIDE “BROAD BENEFITS”

GOOGLE CEO SUNDAR PICHAI has refused to answer a list of questions from U.S. lawmakers about the company’s secretive plan for a censored search engine in China.

In a letter newly obtained by The Intercept, Pichai told a bipartisan group of six senators that Google could have “broad benefits inside and outside of China,” but said he could not share details about the censored search engine because it “remains unclear” whether the company “would or could release a search service” in the country.

Pichai’s letter contradicts the company’s search engine chief, Ben Gomes, who informed staff during a private meeting that the company was aiming to release the platform in China between January and April 2019. Gomes told employees working on the Chinese search engine that they should get it ready to be “brought off the shelf and quickly deployed.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would imagine that the Dragonfly prototype will be rolled out in the US very soon, as nearly the only way to get heavily censored information, while smaller sites get shut down (as Google, Twitter, and Facebook are now doing, with their deplatforming of conservative sites).

And THAT, my friends, is why the Federal Government will let this happen, first in China, then in the US, to provide as much total control over information as they can.

Remember Terry Gilliam's brilliant film, "Brazil", released in 1985?!?

If you have never watched it, please get it now, preferably the director's cut; this man was beyond genius, in his approach to what the US would look like, a couple of decades after the film was made, and wow, was he spot-on in terms of the grinding disparities between the monied, and the have-nots in this country.
