good news on Internet censorship

On February 25th, I published on Google and friends trying to censor Natural News (see: information war). The former slid such a long ways from socially inspired geeks into ruling elite slime partners. I suppose it was inevitable that their success, widespread respect and popularity would attract the worst of humanity and their big bucks Johns.

Still, I am saddened by the gross decline. On a personal level it is a bit more poignant because a research firm one of my daughters worked for was vacuumed up by the Google conglomerate, turning her into a Google employee. I would be proud were she aware of her owners’ integrity decline, but she is unfortunately ignorant. So I have to watch my offspring being a cog in the machine pretty much like I was during the Vietnam “Police Action”.

🙂 Ah yes, I did mention good news.

The puppetmasters of Google and others decided that Natural News .com was an enemy to their, uh, plans. As such, the king of the schoolyard would simply cut them out of all Internet searches.

I, and a whole lot more ants didn’t accept that.

I, and a whole lot of ants criticized Google and friends.

I, and a whole lot more ants encouraged ya’ll to switch search engines from Google and Google-based IXQUICK to non-Google … such as:


One touch that Google has not [yet] lost is knowing what is going on in the Internet.

Oops. Our audience (and control) is evaporating … like NOW!

You, we, explained quite clearly that we were not happy with their censorship moves.

Google backed down [this one time – on this one subject].

That is THE GOOD NEWS I mentioned above.

Apparently a lot of us reacted in a measurable way.
Google received a wake-up slap in the face.

I do not think any trajectories or priorities in Google management changed.

I won’t go back.

I hope millions of us do the same.

I have absolutely no expectation the geeks will retake Google. Taken over by the ruling elite, it simply has to die … and be replaced by the next honorable offering.





There are very few organizations who bring more life-saving information to the public than Mike Adams. His Natural News site is a repository of life-saving information which presents its information in an attractive, easy-to-access format. This noble organization came under extreme attack and its very existence was in question given the actions of Google.

Mike Adams Blackmailed

On Sunday, February 16, 2017, Mike Adams appeared on The Common Sense Show and detailed how he was offered $50,000 to provide the blackmailer with damning information on Alex Jones. Mike refused and was told, “We are coming after you”.

The blackmailer made good on their promise as two days later, Mike’s site, Natural News was eliminated from Google search engines. The revenge was complete. However, Google underestimated the power of the Independent Media and their followers as the forces of the Independent Media joined forces to support Mike Adams.

You see, Google underestimated the resolve of the Independent Media. Unlike the MSM, who character assassinate and play “one-upsmanship” against their network competitors, the Independent Media is largely compromised of people who have a common goal, namely, the restoration of freedom in our country. The Independent Media frequently moves swiftly against those who attack one of our own.

Google, like Facebook, like YouTube, like Twitter, are social media monopolies and should be regulated as a trust under our anti-trust laws. And when they violate the public’s trust by abusing their monopolistic power, they should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and I believe they saw that the Independent Media was willing to join forces and do exactly that.

One has to remember, that the Independent Media brings the public the truth where the MSM and the social media monopolies obscure the truth and the illegal actions of their benefactors. 

Mike Adams released a statement regarding the turning of events, excerpts appear below:

“After six days of being blacklisted by Google, the website has been restored to Google’s search results. The action by Google follows the largest and most vocal backlash against Google’s delisting of any website in the history of the company, and it has sparked many new discussions and debates about search engines, censorship and free speech.”

All of us at Natural News — as well as our many millions of fans — are grateful for Google’s decision to restore the website, but we are also deeply troubled by the unjustified blacklisting of Natural News and what it means for free speech across the ‘net.

For the record, there was never any allegation or evidence that Natural News had intentionally violated Google’s webmaster guidelines. While Google said we were being flagged for a so-called “sneaky mobile redirect” on a very small number of pages in a subdomain ( which were created by outside bloggers, Google went to the extraordinary step of banning the entire root domain and all its subdomains — a step that would never have been applied to CNN, Huffington Post or other popular news websites. In fact, a Natural News investigation showed that violations identified involving websites like HuffPo, Forbes and CNN did not result in the same kind of blacklisting that was applied to Natural News.

Furthermore, while Google did make an effort to provide us with one URL that they said flagged this mobile redirect, to date there hasn’t been a single SEO expert or engineer who could reproduce the supposed redirect issue.

Even more disturbingly, when we went to the Google product webmaster forum to ask for help identifying this issue, we were insulted, mocked and accused of lying by Google’s supporters who behaved like a pack of jackals rather than search engine professionals.

No evidence, no charges but you’re “guilty” because they say you are”.
