I'm just catching up on this thread and haven't read all the posts yet, but, after reading page one I'd like to say thanks for the support and YES, Google is full of it.
The Mozilla Foundation has opted to replace Google as the default search engine for its Firefox browser in US, China and Russia, choosing instead Yahoo, Baidu and Yandex respectively, ending its 10-year partnership with Google.

I have mentioned it in some of my older threads and might do a new one connecting a lot of dots - but one thing to consider is that some years back a program called InfraGard that essentially made private corporations equal to Federal law enforcement agencies was created - a partnership between big business and the FBI.
Some tidbits here
What we could be watching is a Corporate sponsored cyberwar with government agencies acting as contractors - rather than the usual paradigm of it being the other way around.

Sadly Google is already a monopoly and just as strong and getting stronger. I knew that when one of my favorite software that used to keep track of many searching engines in the net. suddenly was shut down and all the engines only showed google links, then I found out that they had bought most of big ones and the rest were killed.
This happen early this year, the internet will never be the same ever again when only one big name controls everything.
