1. There is a merging about to become visible...
2. There has been visible signals, subtle but visible, the DOJ was about to move on a massive (the biggest in history) antitrust lawsuit against Google and all affiliates.
3. It won't surface as what most would think... in a bias based on conservative -vs- leftist ideology in content manipulation; though that will be the larger underpinning of what we will likely soon see surface.
4. Antitrust lawsuits, writ large, are based on "prices", "costs", and net "financial" aspects by corporations not competing based on open commerce.

Antitrust in it's structural form is based on money and the manipulation of prices, costs. Controlled commerce.
5. Google, and all subsidiaries and alliances, have opened themselves to antitrust violations through the manipulation of financial benefit.
6. Demonitization of platform content providers, in combination with Google's control of ad revenue in the digital space, is what has opened the door for DOJ intervention based on antitrust laws.
7. Underpinning that revenue control is the ideological nature of the content provider. However, for the purpose of antitrust lawsuits, that motive is irrelevant.
8. The methods, practices and purposeful control of financial benefit, collusion of corporate interest specific to a planned and organized effort to control monetary benefit, is the part that is quantifiable, discoverable, easily reviewable and ultimately unlawful.
9. Google (and all subsidiaries) will lose their defense effort because ultimately their business practice has resulted in, and arguably they have engaged in, price fixing.

This is the crack in the Big Tech stranglehold that affords the DOJ the opportunity to step in.
10. Watch. It will take time, but eventually they will settle, and there will be a negotiated Consent Decree.

Within the CD terms, we may see a break-up.
11. This is only tangentially related to the current POTUS confrontation with Twitter and Big Tech based on ideological lines. But the two issues will merge...

Silicon Valley will now hold an even larger self-interest in the 2020 election outcome.

Exhibit A....
