Harmeet Dhillon Appears on FBN’s ‘Varney & Company’ To Discuss Google’s New Plans in China
According to Dhillon:
Google is also setting up an AI research facility in China according to this report. So at the same time they’re dropping the Pentagon they are sending that business in China. And more sinister than that even is that Google will be required under Chinese law to hand over data about its users in China at China’s demand. Even though you might search for something and its blacklisted or its blocked or its censored on this special search engine the government will be able find out what you tried to search for, so that is pretty evil.
This is something that Congress should do something about. Many years ago Google had a search engine that was censored and based on complaints from American lawmakers they actually dropped it in 2010. But now, I guess, they think maybe people aren’t paying attention to the issue and they can do it. Even within Google this was kept very secret. It’s only as a result of some leaked documents and one whistleblower approaching the intercept that we been able to find out about this.
This is a common battle between our administration and overregulation around the country and this is just one of the issues. Twelve other states besides California also have the same higher fuel emissions standards. There’s a 60 day waiting period. While the attorney general of California and the governor said they are going to sue, the administration has said it’s open to some negotiation over phasing these things in or whatever, but on top of that our California lawmakers are also claiming that the fires that we have that are raging through our state are as a result of pollution. A couple days ago it was a result of global warming. They use whatever is convenient at hand to justify the regulation. There is still some room for a deal to be made.
