Giving Google Credit, But Not a Pass

Elected leaders come and go, but bureaucracy sticks around forever. Therein lies the inherent problem with government.

While the Trump Administration is doing its best to bring about commonsense regulatory and legal reforms, a lot of what are known as “deep state” shenanigans are often overlooked.

So it heartens us to be able to praise the likes of Google and other companies that have stood up and fought back. In a CNSNews.com commentary, I write that we admire these companies for their “efforts to drain the D.C. swamp.”

Despite many of these same companies being among those who have rightfully earned the criticism of the National Center’s Free Enterprise Project (FEP) in the past – and who will most likely earn it again in the future – we are happy to give them credit in this case for doing something right.

In this case, it’s Google, Oracle and others who are standing up to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and its “practice of filing race and gender discrimination lawsuits” against them and other high tech corporations:

The National Center for Public Policy Research’s Free Enterprise Project (FEP), the nation’s leading activism arm for conservative shareholders, regularly takes Google and its parent company, Alphabet, to task for trampling intellectual property rights, promoting liberal groupthink in Silicon Valley and even fighting our efforts to protect conservative employees from retribution related to their political beliefs.

Yet Google and other companies have our support in one area, as they fight lawsuits brought against them by an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor that is suing companies over discrimination claims that are rooted solely in statistical bean-counting.

Overall, we feel Google would best serve its investors, customers and employees by being politically neutral and focusing on quality products and services instead of public policy. Likewise, we believe the federal government best helps the marketplace and taxpayers when the bureaucracy isn’t abusing its powers to pursue a woke agenda.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
