Tell me I am being paranoid here and tell me there is a logical explanation. A friend created A blog about a certain Congressman and some sexting pictures that are floating around the internet. The Congressman's name and the words "sexting", "Dossier" and the word "exposure" are used in the blog entry. Remarkably, the blog never shows up in Google searches.

Previous blogs on different subjects can show up in Google searches based on keywords but nothing here. Blogs wit less hits than this one show up in Google searches.

Just as an experiment, a link to the blog was posted on an obscure firearms forum. It was posted for about 12 hours before being deleted. Even after being deleted, that link to to the obscure firearm's forum shows up on Google searches.

Is Google shadow banning this blog? Does the blogs content trip an algorithm to man every it not show up in searches or is there a logical explanation for this?

It jut seems strange to us that a blog on such an unusual subject never shows up on a Google search.

I'm skeptical of any company that shows political bias when it makes no sense for them to do so. Google would fall into that category.

Elon Musk is concerned about artificial intelligence. During an interview Musk was questioned "do you worry specifically about any of the companies interviewed"

Musk answered, "there is only one". Never named who but to me that is GOOGLE.

Googles motto was DON'T DO EVIL for over a decade. Then it was suddenly dropped.

This is another short Musk interview.

A.I. being dangerous has been talked about for 70+ years. Starting in the 60's read more than a lot of science fiction and MUCH of it has come true.

70+ years ago it was Isaac Asimov who said.

In 1942, the science fiction author Isaac Asimov published a short story called Runaround in which he introduced three laws that governed the behaviour of robots. The three laws are as follows:

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Just watched the movie "I Robot" a couple of nights ago.

The "Terminator" series was also about how machines turn on us.

I guess that I will never look at a smart TV quite the same way!

Go to the google tools and get the code to put on the website to call the bots in. If after that it does not show up, take it to the news. Oh wait, they don't care.

Just quit using google, problem solved. DuckDuckgo....

Why use Google that tracks every site you visit and then sends you tons of ads and popups?

Use DuckDuckGo .... no tracking ever!

What bugged me earlier this week was when I went to the Social Security site to get a replacement card. The top site that showed up said I had to pay. At least I realized it was a bogus site before I entered any vital information.

I've tried duckduckgo before and unhappy with the results. Tried it today and there it is, top of the list. Also the list is more of what I'd expect rather than the happy happy propaganda that shows up with Google. Interesting.

This is frosting me. Makes me wonder if Google has a list of players in Washington they will protect by manipulating Google searches to bury such.

When you search using google you are not actually searching the internet, you are searching Google's archive of the internet. I googled his name sexting exposure dossier. The very first story was :

Congressman Adam Kinzinger Sexting Exposed? - Kinzinger Dossier
https://kinzingerdossier.blogspot.com/.../congressman-adam-kinzinger-sexting.html?m...
Rep. Kinzinger uttered that scornful quote when he discussed General Michael Flynn's scrutinized situation in early 2017 shortly after President Trump took office. In January 2017, Flynn was being hounded for his initiated discussions he held as a transition team member with “Russian diplomats,” which were retrieved by ...
