Google’s Fake Searches

What I outlined and predicted about the WSWS, was proven true a few days ago. I wrote in March: “By far the most dangerous online organization to the ruling class is, the World Socialist Web Site. What deep state planners fear more than anything is a revolution from below. That is a decisive force, which they can not control. Therefore, a ruthless & highly-sophisticated misinformation & suppression campaign must be directed against this site, and any sympathizers.” [1]

That thesis was confirmed on July 27, 2017 when the WSWS published “New Google algorithm restricts access to left-wing, progressive web sites.” This was followed the next day with “Google rigs searches to block access to World Socialist Web Site,” which provides indisputable proof that Google is politically manipulated by capitalism’s paymasters & Black Hand.

Read “Does the WSWS write about Leon Trotsky? Not according to Google,” and try their suggested searches. The WSWS is a well-optimized & mobile friendly site. Huge strides were made in tagging (to improve site searchability) of their older articles during their 15th anniversary year in 2013, in which past articles were reviewed and yearly summaries were written by younger SEP writers. And yet Googling “Trotsky” gets the WSWS a first result on page 13!

The Fourth International (and Ric Size) can only do so much online until they run into capitalist suppression, and this is it. This is fascism, where free expression is censored & slandered, every second of every day. It’s just the precursor to physical violence & annihilation, which is what these sickheads really know & revel in. Trump is their authority (excuse) to use the most venomous attacks, as everything is now flowing from ignorance, fear & hate. Nothing good can come of this madness, and it must be checked with fierce & organized resistance– ASAP.

The only political party in the world that is fit for this task of leadership is the Socialist Equality Party (SEP), which is the US branch of the Fourth International, the political party founded by Leon Trotsky in Paris in 1938. A relentless campaign to expose Google is in order, but what’s needed even more is grassroots organizing, leafleting, and active engagement in the “real world” from supporters of a socialist revolution. This savage censorship of the truth, in the name of combating “fake news,” is just another attempt to throw poison in the eyes of the workers & youth of the world. For the suppression to be this blatant indicates the level of desperation in ruling political circles. This is how much they fear the truth.


Padres GM A.J. Preller Clipped by MLB Old-Guard

MLB suspends Padres GM Preller for 30 days  9-15-16  [1]

Major League Baseball (MLB) announced today that A.J. Preller, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Padres, has received a 30-day suspension without pay.  MLB considers the matter closed and has no further comment.


No explanation from MLB!


What this is really about is punishment for A.J. Preller winning the trade deadline, dumping all his junk ahead of everyone else and getting the best prospects while glutting the market.  Padres aren’t supposed to do that. It would have been alright for the Yanks or Sox, but not the Friars. Therefore, MLB steps in and ‘corrects’ the situation. [2]


Every team submits player medical records to a central database, while maintaining their own records & opinions of their players. This is proprietary to each organization, as each seeks an edge over the rest. It isn’t unethical to withhold that data, in fact it’s considered best-practice for the industry.

Jerry Reinsdorf

Each team has the right to a player undergoing a complete physical before any trade is approved by MLB. This should be more than a cursory review of the partner organization’s records, but an independent evaluation by their own medical staff. MLB plays the role of enabler here, trying to make up for the lack of diligence on behalf of their chosen favorites.


One final note on the Buster Olney piece up on ESPN, which amounts to a hatchet job on the Padres.  It is very clear that the White Sox & Marlins are in on this with the Red Sox. These teams got fleeced by A.J. Preller during the trade season because their GM’s & scouting failed. James Shields, Fernando Rodney, Drew Pomeranz & Andrew Cashner were all overpays for their buyers, and this story is an attempt to defect the blame away from their front office incompetence.

RHP Colin Rea was near his innings limit, yet still rushed into the Marlins rotation the day after the deal was made, and immediately injured by the Marlins. In the end, the Padres took 3 Tommy John pitchers from the Marlins (Chris Paddack, Carter Capps & Rea), without complaint. This punishment for Preller is hypocrisy, but it helps to maintain ‘team integrity’ and the proper ‘competitive balance” which is very important to MLB & ESPN.

Jeffrey Loria

Now that’s it’s over and Preller & the Padres have accepted their punishment, is there any comment from the owners & front offices of the Red/White Sox & Marlins?  Their collective silence speaks for itself as cowardly & pathetic.
