How to Go on Google in China
Updated: April 16, 2019

You must use a virtual private network (VPN) to access Google from China, as there are no official or "legal" ways to do so. ....

Bokhari: The Demise of Google’s Free Speech Movement
Allum Bokhari11 Aug 2019

Free speech at Google is long since dead. But it didn’t go down without a fight. As the tech giant embarked on its self-described “shift towards censorship”, many employees inside the company spoke out against it — and were rewarded with harassment and discrimination for remaining true to Google’s founding values.

Former Google employees tell Breitbart News that felt they were forced out of the company and retaliated against because they stood up for free speech and political neutrality. They describe an atmosphere of bullying, in which far-left “social justice warriors” were allowed to smear and intimidate them with little intervention from the company’s HR department.

Google China is a subsidiary of Google. Once a popular search engine, most services offered by Google China were blocked by the Great Firewall in the People's Republic of China.

In 2010, searching via all Google search sites, including Google Mobile, was moved from mainland China to Hong Kong.


By November 2013 its search market share had declined to 1.7% from its August 2009 level of 36.2%.[3][4]

...

In March 2009 China blocked access to Google's YouTube site due to footage showing Chinese security forces beating Tibetans;[10] access to other Google online services was being denied to users arbitrarily.

...

In January 2010 Google announced that, in response to a Chinese-originated hacking attack on them and other US tech companies, they were no longer willing to censor searches in China and would pull out of the country completely if necessary

On 4 September 2009, after four years leading Google China, Kai-Fu Lee unexpectedly left to start a venture fund, amid debate about the Chinese government's censorship policies and Google's decreasing share to rival Baidu and Soso.com

Google is treading a dangerous path in China
By Editorial Board
October 16, 2018

GOOGLE ANNOUNCED last week that it would not compete for a $10 billion cloud-computing contract with the Pentagon, claiming the work would conflict with its corporate values. Yet somehow that ethical high-mindedness does not seem to come into play as the company plans to launch a censored search engine in China.
...
Google says it has not yet decided whether search in China is viable. All the more reason for people in the United States, from employees to members of Congress to everyday citizens, to speak up for what they believe. After all, Google’s potential customers in China do not enjoy that opportunity.

Google’s development of a platform that complies with the Chinese regime’s restrictions on information access, dubbed Project Dragonfly, was first reported by the Intercept in August. Since then, details have become available bit by bit, no thanks to the company itself. Last week, the Intercept obtained a letter from Google chief executive Sundar Pichai to a bipartisan group of six senators in which he refused to answer specific questions about the engine but touted its “broad benefits.” Google also says there are no concrete plans to launch what is still only an exploratory project — but the Intercept reports the company’s search engine chief said in a private meeting that he hoped for a rollout early next year.

This lack of transparency further weakens Google’s claim to the moral high ground.

Google Is Handing the Future of the Internet to China
The company has been quietly collaborating with the Chinese government on a new, censored search engine—and abandoning its own ideals in the process.
By Suzanne Nossel | September 10, 2018, 4:37 PM

In May, Google quietly removed “Don’t be evil” from the text of its corporate code of conduct, deleting a catchphrase that had been associated with the company since 2000.

Key Points

Texas will lead a joint state investigation into Google over antitrust concerns, state Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Monday.
The news follows the announcement of a joint state Facebook probe led by the attorney general of New York.
Google is also reportedly facing an antitrust probe from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Fifty attorneys general are joining an investigation into Google over possible antitrust violations
, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the initiative’s leader, announced Monday.

The news confirms reports last week about the bipartisan investigation into Google’s practices. The probe will take place as Facebook faces its own antitrust investigation led by New York Attorney General Letitia James with attorneys general from seven states plus the District of Columbia.

Paxton said the probe will focus on Google’s advertising business, “but the facts will lead where the facts lead.”

Shares of Google parent company Alphabet were down about 0.8% around the time of the announcement.

Google Nest Is Censorship & Surveillance In Your Home


https://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/google-nest-is-censorship-surveillance-in-your-home_09112019
Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

Google wants you to bring Big Brother into the privacy of your home with its Google Nest surveillance system. Google’s Nest Hub surveillance system is constantly looking for its owner’s face and technically can’t be shut off. After making sure certain information is censored on behalf of the political establishment, Google will make sure you’re watched accordingly.

This is raising concerns about privacy and human rights. Censorship has crossed the line long ago along with mass surveillance, but humans continue to all but demand more control over their lives. This latest “smart-home” device from Mountain View comes equipped with a constantly-scanning facial-recognition-enabled camera that can’t be shut off, only ‘disabled’ with a switch that also (supposedly) deactivates the microphone, according to a report by RT.  Just as the device is constantly listening for its “wake word,” it is prepared to leap into action at the sight of its owner’s visage.
