    Default Google executive running stealth campaign to place Clinton Dynasty in White House

    The CEO of Google likes his secrets, just like the woman he's trying to get elected to the White House. The man in question is Eric Schmidt, and the candidate is none other than Hillary Clinton.

    Quartz reports that billionaire Schmidt is the primary funding source behind an under-the-radar startup that has become a major technology vendor for Clinton's presidential campaign, "underscoring the bonds between Silicon Valley and Democratic politics."

    Democratic campaign operatives and technologists interviewed by Quartz said that The Groundwork startup is part of various efforts by Schmidt, who is actually the chief executive of Google's new parent company Alphabet, to make sure that Clinton has all the engineering talent she needs to transform her family name into an American presidential dynasty.

    The project is just one of several secretive investments by Schmidt that underscores how modern political campaigns are being run; they are using data analytics and digital outreach on social media and other platforms that permit candidates to locate, lure and turn out vital demographic voting blocs.

    Obfuscation, political ties and co-opted candidates

    Quartz reported:

    But campaigns—lacking stock options and long-term job security—find it hard to attract the elite engineering talent that Facebook, Google, and countless startups rely on. That's also part of the problem that Schmidt and the Groundwork are helping Clinton's team to solve.

    Not surprisingly, The Groundwork is one of Clinton's largest campaign vendors, billing more than $177,000 in the second quarter of this year, according to federal filings. Many political operatives don't know very much about the organization; its website has no links and features only a grey-on-black triangle logo suggesting "the digital roots of change" that also vaguely resembles an Illuminati symbol.

    Interestingly, someone associated with The Groundwork's secretive operations has tried to claim that nothing is being done in secret.

    "We're not trying to obfuscate anything, we're just trying to keep our heads down and do stuff," Michael Slaby, who runs the Groundwork, told Quartz.

    Slaby just happens to have been the chief technology officer for then-Senator Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign. He was also a top digital executive for the Obama reelection campaign in 2012 "and the former chief technology strategist for TomorrowVentures, Schmidt's angel investment fund," Quartz reported.

    He went on to explain that The Groundwork and its parent company, Timshel are "all one project, with the same backers," whom he summarily declined to name. Timshel, which is based in Obama's hometown of Chicago, is named for a
    Hebrew word meaning "you may" and is dedicated to "helping humanity
    solve our most difficult social, civic and humanitarian challenges,"
    according to its website.

    No obfuscation here.

    Naturally, Schmidt would not respond to interview requests from Quartz. However, a number of Democratic political operatives and tech experts, speaking anonymously to avoid embarrassing or damaging the Clinton campaign and Schmidt, confirmed that The Groundwork is partly funded by the chairman of Alphabet.

    Another bought-and-paid-for president?

    There are more ties to Clinton, Obama and Democrats between Schmidt, The Groundwork and Google. The Groundwork was first based in an office in downtown Brooklyn, just a few blocks away from its biggest client, the Clinton campaign.

    "There is also another gap in play: The shrinking distance between Google and the Democratic Party," Quartz reported. "Former Google executive Stephanie Hannon is the Clinton campaign's chief technology officer, and a host of ex-Googlers are currently employed as high-ranking technical staff at the Obama White House. Schmidt, for his part, is one of the most powerful donors in the Democratic Party—and his influence does not stem only from his wealth, estimated by Forbes at more than $10 billion."

    Clinton, a so-called "woman of the Middle Class", is just another bought-and-paid-for politician seeking the highest office in the land who will be beholden to the same special interests as Obama, Jeb Bush and nearly everyone else in the 2016 race.

    Dr. Ben Carson is an intelligent individual. He is currently leading in the polls with Trump in second place. With Carson's impressive resume and his innovations in modern medicine and other surgical procedures, does Dr. Carson have the ability to run the USA? Dr. Carson has zero political experience (Trump has zero experience, too). One could make the argument that if Dr. Carson surrounds myself with advisors who have a deep understanding of the government and military personnel (generals) who are extremely experienced, Carson...could succeed.

    Listen, being the President of the US isn't an entry level position, even if a presidential candidate has a genius level type intellect like Dr. Carson. Experience is what matters and Carson has zero. Yes, the man ran a hospital for YEARS and successful prevailed in the medical field but politics is a different ball game. Dr. Carson mentioned that being President is all about using common sense and the US Constitution was written at an eighth grade level. Um, I and others believe that the most difficult job in the world is a lot more than just using common sense and interacting with senior presidental advisors.

    ^^sounds like art needs to take you on his fourth tropical holiday since July so you can have some R & R and forget about the USA's demise for a fleeting moment

    back on topic : there have been some functioning retards governing the US over the years, nothing indicates things are going to get that much worse. unless it's Trump of course

    sanders & clinton are never gonna be able to actually pull off stricter gun laws after the elections I think. I don't think it'll win them that many votes during the elections either

    still not a fan of guns btw

    Hillary should be in prison right now for breaching national security protocol and destruction of evidence. What she did is 10x worse than Nixon.

    Ben Carson actually believes evolution is "encouraged by satan" and recently stated he wants to increase the war on drugs.

    Bernie Sanders recently proposed the idea of banning semi-automatic guns, which would essentially ban nearly every gun in the US. He is too stupid to understand what semi auto means and that it applies to hunting rifles and shotguns as well.

    Trump is just entertaining. Something that's fun to watch as Western society goes into a complete death spiral. The great decline started along time ago and nothing can stop it now. Really the only thing worth doing at this point, is reading up on select works/essays from the neoreaction cannon to get a better understanding of how things got to this point, and how progressive policies will expediate the demise of the U.S. and turn it into a Brazil 2.0
    Good work, Rob. I'm taking this serious because as a US citizen, these candidates hold political power. With all the smart people in the Republican party, they provide us Trump, Bush, Carson, and Mark R. With all the smart people in the Democratic party, we're provided Clinton (she will receive the Democratic nomination for sure), and Sanders who is a full-time socialist. With all the smart political individuals in this country, THIS IS THE BEST YOU GUYS CAN COME UP WITH?!

    Both Trump and Carson have ZERO political experience; Clinton is a lair and if elected, I don't even want to think about it.

    Maybe we all should prepare for hell.

    Monkey, please don't do that. You have to admit that Dr. Carson is a hard worker and despite where he came from, he made something of himself: a genius doctor. So, calling Carson an "Uncle Tom" because of his intelligence and that he's a Republican is silly and just plain immature.

    He's said some pretty crazy things; comparing abortion to slavery, Holocaust remarks, denial about racism, etc. the guy is a card-caring Uncle Tom. there's no other way to put it. I don't know if he's any less worse than Alan West and/or Herman Cain, but he's BAD. no self-righteous black person would vote for him.

    as for Bernie, the worst thing people can say about him is that he's a socialist who doesn't like guns? that's pretty tame. it's going to take another generation before Americans stop using the word "socialist" as a bad word. again, the Baby Boomers and WWII generation fucked it all up. they have to go.

    Putin is a showboating coon who's foreign policy agenda is 'look cool'. It's all going to come back to bite him severely. Obama is the only human being to run in an election since the new millenium. We act like it's just now that we got a swarm of zoo babies but no, that's been the case for a while. Mccain? Romney (who wasn't that bad but still struggled coming off as a human)?, Palin? Gore? Bush? Bush? That douche from Texas? Al Sharpton? That pastor from Fox News? Ron Paul? Hilary? Bobby Jindal?


    The more attention you get in the american menality, the more valueable you are, the more valueable you are the most 'right' you are. So leaders and icons are chosen for their ability to get attention and as internet makes the courting of attention cheaper than TV did (click-bait, scandal, outrageous statement), and TV (looks, corny white ass behavior that nobody can tolerate) made it cheaper than radio.

    Now that the internet is here, the loudest person is the most click-bait friendly and so Trump, Carson and Ron Paul look are going to be up there.

    I also think with the aftermath of 9/11 people stopped trusting government period. Republicans rode that train to hell and so the electorate is just getting pumped for the most 'fuck everyone' guy possible. It was the genius of Sarah Palin that uncovered this, but Americans are retarded and it's catching up with them. Forget that they inherited a continent of free land and have been able, in previous year, to do cool shit with it an an exceptional proficiency. The fact that its a nest of bammers, bigots, fundamentalists, DERRP Guns people, GET A JARB people, and raccoons has caught up with us.

    Do you know why Sanders allowed those women to talk? If he would've told them to "shut up and leave", Sanders would've be called a racist. The Black Lives Matter movement tried to do the same thing to Clinton. If a politician doesn't say the "right" words, they're a racist.

    The angry fat heffers were going to refer to him as a racist whether he let them talk or not.

    this is a losing battle for conservatives. the generations are going to keep getting more and more liberal, it's just the way of things. America will be unrecognizable in 20-30 years. lots of things have changed, for better or worse. Gay marriage is legal in all 50 states. Columbus Day is being replaced with Indigenous Peoples Day. The Millennials surpassed the Baby Boomers this year as the majority generation.....and NWA is about to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame lol

    it really shits me that people don't realise that there's a generation AFTER Gen Y and they think all of us Gen Y had life with iPhones and high speed internet.

    Watch out for the Chinese investors too. They did all that shit here. Buy the resources and manipulate the market to drive prices down to buy them cheap, buy all of the housing, buy all of the local industry then replace local workers with imported Chinese on far less than minimal wage because the governments suck each other's cocks.
