(AP Photo/Jens Meyer, File) Big Tech is titanically huge. Behold some market caps…. Microsoft : $2.29 trillion Alphabet (Google/YouTube) : $1.85 trillion Amazon : $1.62 trillion Facebook : $1.01 trillion And Big Tech uses its hugeness to purchase metric tons of crony government policy. Behold some 2019-2020 federal lobbying and contribution tallies…. Alphabet (Google/YouTube) : $49.06 million Amazon : $48.31 million Facebook : $44.36 million Microsoft : $40.79 million That is a monstrous amount of money in DC — even by corrupt DC’s corrupt standards. But it is a tiny pittance to these monstrous corporate monstrosities. Pocket change from the world’s deepest pockets.
Should Big Tech ever not get all the crony policy they want? They have metric tons of additional money they can pour upon the problem.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
