But why should Google favor trademarks in the first place? If I am searching for "Amazon," who is Google to say I am interested in an online store and not a race of mythological women or a South American river basin?
The top position goes to a foreign company in asia that gets multiple positioning from Google. Language use by the foreign firm is in asian characters and have no idea what they do or sell.
Google is also quite popular in Asia. If that foreign firm has the mark registered in their home country, wouldn't they have just as much (or as little) right to complain that you've registered it in the US?
fact that the user and domain registry in the foreign country elect not to respect the trademark symbol
Do you have any evidence that this foreign entity does not have the trademark registered in their own country?

Google is not the trademark police. They have a first amendment right to decide (however they please) who shows up first when you search their site. If you don't like it, block them via robots.txt
