The researcher, Dr. Robert Epstein, 66, suggested in a tweet on Sunday that the fatal car crash of Misti Dawn Vaughn, 29, was no accident, especially after police noted that there were no drugs or alcohol involved in the crash.
“Last year, after I briefed a group of state AGs about #Google’s power to rig elections, one of them said, “I think you’re going to die in an accident in a few months,” wrote Epstein.
“A few months later, my beautiful wife #Misti died a violent death. Makes you wonder,” he continued, tweeting a link to a December 29 story published by the UK Daily Mail detailing his accusations.
Last month, Vaughn’s Ford Ranger reportedly spun out of control on a slippery road in California, veering into the path of a tractor trailer rig. A few days later, she died of her injuries.
According to the San Diego Tribune:
It happened around 8:05 a.m. on north Interstate 15 near state Route 78, California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Mark Latulippe said in a statement.
It was unclear why the woman lost control of her Ford Ranger, but the truck “slid out of control ... and slid across the lanes into the path” of a Freightliner semi hauling two dump trailers, Latulippe said.
Another vehicle driven by a 19-year-old woman hit Vaughn’s Ranger but neither she nor the 50-year-old truck driver were injured.
Through extensive research, Epstein, a psychologist by training, discovered that through algorithm manipulation, Google and other social media giants can influence voting patterns. Their control of information flows can influence election outcomes.
In particular, as The National Sentinel reported in March 2019, Epstein said he believes that Google manipulated searches, news feeds, and other data to the point that it cost at least three Republicans their seats in the 2018 midterms:
The scientist and AIBRT analyzed Google searches that were linked to a trio of highly competitive congressional races in southern California that were won by Democrats. In doing so, the team discovered that Google’s “clear democrat bias” likely flipped those seats away from GOP candidates.
In the days leading up to the midterms, he preserved “more than 47,000 election-related searches on Google, Bing, and Yahoo, along with the nearly 400,000 web pages to which the search results linked,” he said.
An analysis of the data proved clearly a pro-Democrat bias in election-related searches. He said when Google placed a simple multi-colored “Go Vote” logo on its home search page in the days leading up to the election, “on the surface it doesn’t even look like a manipulation” but it most certainly was, Epstein says, no matter how subtle it seemed.
Earlier, Epstein noted that “individual employees at Google have the power to manually remove material, remove content that we see, and they do so often with political ends.”
And now, after being warned by someone — apparently at least semi-seriously — his wife has met a terrible fate.
Is it possible that the tech giant punished him for his whistleblowing ways? Of course it is. And what’s more, Epstein is clearly worried about what may come next. A few days after his initial tweeted theory about Google, he tweeted again to let everyone know he’s not “suicidal.”
Then, as if to cover his tracks so to speak, Epstein tweeted:
Conspiracy…or conspiracy theory? You be the judge. But it certainly sounds as though Epstein is concerned about something.
