An Open Letter to Google’s Censorship Team
Let me be blunt. Google censors political speech. The world has known for some time that Google’s algorithm can be programmed to censor websites and keywords.

Google Censorship to Protect Obama, Again?
I run a conservative blog (Jefferson’s Rebels), and publish something almost daily. Sometimes after upload, I will Google some of the articles or graphics to test the search engine.

Censorship & Watch Lists! The Silencing of Conservatives
Man I have to say, things are sure getting scary…We all know the Left is involved in a no-holds barred battle to find someway to shut down the Conservative voice that is Talk Radio.
