MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, December 16, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – In the last two days, Google services have suffered major outages, rendering users across the world unable to use the platform. The system failures highlight the manner in which people have come to rely on the platform, despite it spying on its users, along with raising questions about cyber attack relating to the globalist “Great Reset.”
On Monday, Google services dropped for about an hour shortly before 7am EST, as the company’s various online services underwent a huge outage. The Google Workspace Dashboard outlines the extent of the issue, with popular services such as Gmail, Google Drive, Maps, Classroom, and YouTube unusable.
In a statement made to TechCrunch, Google explained the issue. “Today, at 3.47AM PT Google experienced an authentication system outage for approximately 45 minutes due to an internal storage quota issue. Services requiring users to log in experienced high error rates during this period. The authentication system issue was resolved at 4:32AM PT. All services are now restored. We apologise to everyone affected, and we will conduct a thorough follow up review to ensure this problem cannot recur in the future.”
As the system failure affected users worldwide, TechCrunch described it as “an unprecedented failure for a system that has grown to be one of the biggest traffic and activity drivers on the internet with billions of users across Google’s different properties.”
Then the next day, Google suffered a repeat with a similar incident, when its email service Gmail went down, affecting nearly 18,000 users. This time the Workspace Dashboard bore the message “We’re aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a significant subset of users. The affected users are able to access Gmail, but are seeing error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behavior.” Some two hours later, the company posted a message to say that the problem had been “resolved.” but no explanation as to the problem itself was provided.
The encrypted email service provider ProtonMail warned its own users about the “serious outage and permanently bouncing emails sent to Gmail users.” It noted that the “[t]he problem is on Google’s side, and is impacting all email traffic.”
Interestingly on the same day as Google’s original outage, December 14, Microsoft also experienced problems, with users reporting issues with it company’s Outlook email service. Whilst not on the same scale as Google’s outage, merely affecting a small number of users in Europe, those affected were reportedly unable to use their email. Microsoft’s other popular services, such as Skype, Teams and One Drive, seemed to be unaffected.
Wider concerns of cyber attack and the Great Reset
The combination and severity of the various system outages highlight how much people all around the globe have come to rely upon technology, particularly when virtual events are currently taking the place of in-person meetings. As TechCrunch noted, such outages “underscore some of the fragility – and ultimate precariousness – of having so much of our communications, our data and our lives tied up in a handful of proprietary cloud-based networks.”
PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -
The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.
We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.
However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.
As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.
Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.
In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20) -
On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"
He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.
While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.
Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.
LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.
But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.
We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.
Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.
Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.
The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.
But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!
Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!
Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.
Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!
Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!
While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.
This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.
We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!

A report by California based group Consumer Watchdog, found that Google’s Voice Assistant was even recording conversations without users’ knowledge. The company “keeps copies of clips made each time you activate it, but it has emerged that background chatter could be enough to trigger recording.” Google avails of the information particularly in sending targeted ads, but hackers and criminals could also access the data, the group warned.
In 2017, conservative Breitbart News network hosted an event outlining how Facebook, Twitter, and Google are actively spying on users and influencing what information we receive from their websites. Robert Epstein, a senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioural Research and Technology, highlighted Google: “All Gmails, outgoing, the ones you write, and incoming — no matter what email service they’re coming from — they are all recorded, analyzed, every detail is put into your personal profile,” he said.
In contrast, encrypted email provider ProtonMail has been set up with “privacy” as a priority. “We use end-to-end encryption and zero access encryption to secure emails. This means even we cannot decrypt and read your emails. As a result, your encrypted emails cannot be shared with third parties,” the website states. The messaging service, Signal, also uses “end-to-end encryption,” in order to protect users privacy, and is used by American whistleblower Edward Snowden, as well as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
Shortly after the first Google outage, a former senior software engineer at Youtube and Google, Zach Vorhies, posted a message linking to a July videoof World Economic Forum founder, Klaus Schwab, which seemed to shed light on the event, as well as other issues regarding electronic voter fraud in the recent presidential election. In the video Schwab spoke about a “comprehensive cyber attack which would bring to a complete halt, to the power supply, transportation, hospital services; our society as a whole.”
“The COVID-19 crisis would be seen in this respect as a small disturbance in comparison to a major cyber attack,” Schwab hinted, saying COVID-19 should be used “as a timely opportunity to reflect on the lessons the cyber security can draw, and improve our preparedness for a potential cyber pandemic.”
Schwab is a prominent proponent of the “Great Reset,” the plan designed by globalist elites, gathering at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland once a year, which “seeks to ‘push the reset button’ on the global economy.”
He has previously stated, “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”
“The COVID-19 crisis has shown us that our old systems are not fit anymore for the 21st century,” he claimed. “It has laid bare the fundamental lack of social cohesion, fairness, inclusion, and equality. Now is the historical moment, the time, not only to fight the virus but to shape the system … for the post COVID era… In short, we need a great reset.”
