(12 links plus another 5 links in article excerpt) CONGRATS, GOOGLE! After going on record as opposing Senate Bill 968, the IP Protection Act (dubbed "Internet censorship bill"), Google got hit with an antitrust probe by the United States Department of Justice and numerous lawsuits by individual companies alleging antitrust violations. See below an excerpt from an article regarding Google's triumph in a lawsuit by myTriggers.
A Google victory in private antitrust suit
by Matt Weinberger, Sept. 3, 2011
Google won another private antitrust suit late this week thanks to an Ohio judge tossing out the case levied against it by a tiny search company.
MyTriggers, the comparison shopping search tool provider which filed the suit, has been alleging that Google had been manipulating search results to keep its business from taking off. Interestingly, that claim was only made after Google had sought $335,000 in unpaid bills from myTriggers, according to CNET.
As reported by the Wall Street Journal, the case was dismissed when the judge ruled that myTriggers was unable to prove that Google’s business practices are harmful to competition as a whole.
“The counterclaim only alleges harm to myTriggers itself. myTriggers’ allegations do not meet the necessary standard for pleading an antitrust injury.”It’s also worth noting that MyTriggers was represented in this case by long-time Microsoft antitrust specialist Rick Rule and his well-known law firm, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, based out of Washington DC. Of course, Microsoft continues to deny all involvement in any lawsuits against Google. But it’s an interesting coincidence when you remember that Rule represented TradeComet in that company’s separate private antitrust lawsuit against Google, which was dismissed back in July.
With this dismissal, Google has won all of the currently-known private lawsuits levied against it here in the US. But it’s still looking down the barrel of an FTC antitrust investigation into its business practices.
This writer feels strongly that Google's antitrust probe arose because of the company's opposition to S.968, a congressional bill which would put the Internet under the United States Department of Justice (USDOJ). If that happens, freedom of press in the United States might be finished. I have not found the USDOJ to be a fair government agency or particularly interested in upholding citizens' rights. Yahoo, VISA, American Express, venture capitalists, law professors, Human Rights Watch, and many other companies, organizations, and individuals also object to the provisions in Senate Bill 968 for Attorney General Holder and his successors' ability to 1) redirect links, 2) control browsers, and 3) remove websites from the Internet that appear to violate intellectual property rights and use those capabilities "FOR OTHER PURPOSES." The "other purposes" were not disclosed in the bill, but I suspect they include expelling dissidents from the Internet altogether, including people who oppose war without provocation, capital punishment, outsourcing American jobs to prisons and overseas, religious "bias," etc. Although Google was far from being alone in opposing Senate Bill 968, the fact that Google handles over 85% of Internet searches probably makes its opposition the most problematic for passage of the Nazi bill.

I became alarmed about the USDOJ's lack of commitment to justice years ago. Read my Freedom of Information Act requests submitted in May 2009 regarding the secret arrest and murder of my handicapped brother, which the USDOJ refuses to answer, at these links (if they attack one link, you will have others to use: Care2 - http://www.care2.com/c2c/share/detail/1140084 and NowPublic - http://www.nowpublic.com/health/foi-request-usdoj-re-larry-neal-and-cochran-firm-fraud and FreeSpeakblog - (They are hiding this one. Excuse me while I research the problem. Hackers!) Now the citizens police stationed around my home are shooting in the air, which means they object to my article. The shooting serves as a reminder that they are mean, dangerous, powerful people. Please pray for my family and me. I BELIEVE God is stronger than Satan, but demons are so terrifying that I lived like a recluse for more than a year (2008-2009), afraid to leave home. In 2008, I discovered that the system we rely on to protect human/civil rights is the same system that we need protection from. I thought things would improve in 2009, but they did not. Then I stepped out on faith, and God never failed me yet. God used a horrible miscarriage of justice to make of me a human rights advocate for the incarcerated mentally ill and other prisoners, people He is very concerned about (Matt.25:31-46). I recognize the danger of opposing powers of darkness, but I draw strength from Ephesians 6:10-20. Notice that in preparing for spiritual warfare, God gives His people nothing for our backs. We must press on!
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
A victory for Google regarding its antitrust allegations is a victory for freedom of press. Happy Heroes Day, Judge Bessey! Rock on!
Every time I write an article and try to announce it at Twitter, hackers get busy preventing my freedom of press. Below is the tweet they disallow:
@hrw @HumanityNews @ACLU @JesusTweeter @topsy @ochocinco @eonline @mashable @glptweets @rww Hands Off Google, Fascists! http://marylovesjustice.blogspot.com/2011/09/hands-off-google-fascists.html
Does it make sense to do all of this censorship? People already know about the information in this article or can get it from other sources. Please take vitamins, get more rest, and REPENT FROM SIN, hackers and your bosses! Blacks are learning about The Cochran Firm CoIntelPro fraud, because God hardened your hearts so that you were/are blind to your own best interests. Since that is the ONLY news story I publish that other writers do not, I assume that is your main reason to continue to censor Mary Neal. Readers, Google Cochran Firm Fraud 1 and 2, videos on YouTube. Share them widely so that these people will recognize that THE SECRET IS OUT ALREADY. THE GOVERNMENT USES LAW FIRMS FOR SURVEILLING AND DEFRAUDING PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY BLACKS. NOW can my tweet go through?
