4,000 Google Employees Threaten To Quit Over ‘Deep State’ Collusion


4,000 Google staff threaten to quit over the company's Deep State ties

 Over a dozen Google employees have quit and a further 4,000 are threatening to walk out over the company’s ongoing ties to the ‘Deep State’. 

 Amid a total media blackout, thousands of Google workers are demanding that Google end their participation in a ‘Deep State’ project with the Pentagon called Project Maven.

Engadget.com reports: Project Maven seeks to help the military analyze drone footage faster through machine learning, as the AI detects people and objects for human review.

 Those who resigned from Google cited ethical concerns over the use of AI in drone operations and the company’s broader involvement in political and military spheres — Google recently sponsored the Conservative Political Action Conference, for instance.

 Some claimed that Google is increasingly less transparent with employees about contentious decisions and seems less concerned about objections from staffers than it used to be. “I wasn’t happy just voicing my concerns internally,” one employee who left told Gizmodo. “The strongest possible statement I could take against this was to leave.”

 Opposition to Maven seems to be growing inside Google. As of about a month ago, around 3,100 employees had signed the petition. Approximately 5.4 percent of the workforce have now voiced their concern.

 Yet Google is forging ahead with Maven, noting that because the technology used in the project is open source, the military could use it regardless of the company’s direct involvement.

 Some of the employees who have resigned and the petitioners claim Maven runs contrary to Google’s ethos — the mantra “don’t be evil” has long been at the heart of Google’s principles.

 The company has insisted that the AI is not being used for combat operations, but its involvement has still upset many within its ranks. Meanwhile, AI and ethics academics who are supporting the petition also want Google to back a treaty banning autonomous weapons systems, and suggested that Google’s obligations extend beyond America’s interests as they are tied to a global user base.

Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy: ‘The Real Second Amendment Isn’t Absolute

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted Saturday there is a “real” Second Amendment and an “imaginary” one and he believes the real one is “not absolute.”

Murphy, “I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment. And the real 2nd Amendment isn’t absolute.”

The statement was a precursor to his call for banning “assault rifles” in the wake of the Santa Fe High School shooting, even though “assault rifles” were not used in the attack.

Murphy said the “real 2nd Amendment…allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) said the Santa Fe High School attackers used a .38 revolver and a shotgun to carry out his heinous acts. Therefore, a ban on “assault rifles” would have done nothing to prevent the attack from occurring or the tragic loss of life from taking place.

It should be noted that Saturday was not the first time Sen. Murphy called the essence of the Second Amendment into question. On August 6, 2013, Breitbart News reported that Murphy told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “The Second Amendment is not an absolute right, not a God-given right. It has always had conditions upon it like the First Amendment has.”

Murphy did not grapple with the words, “Shall not be infringed.”
