Has WordPress Betrayed It’s Bloggers? Too Many “WTF” Censorship Moments

Author’s Notes:

The post began as a routine report. I had heard a local conservative radio host comment that nearly 20% of Americans are now on food stamps. The number seemed absurd so I looked it up when I got home. I just happened to catch a chart in a YT video which showed the escalating numbers of food stamp recipients. I intended to post it. I checked other fact sheets and articles and saw that 20% of America, not 14% is actually currently on food stamps. This fact flies in the face of Big Media spin which is telling us about the “economic recovery.” I intended to post that as well. But the story suddenly took a bizarre turn when I tried to do a very routine thing on WordPress – to set up a new post category. It’s something I do dozens of times a week. Very routine.

As I was typing the phrase “2011 Food Stamp Statistics” into the text pane for new parent categories, something happened which IS NOT supposed to be possible on WordPress, especially when you own the domain you are posting to. A red box appeared with the phrase: “You do not have permission to do that.”

I actually thought it was some sort of joke, like a belated April Fool’s spoof, going on on WordPress. I tried to type but nothing would enter the pane. I refreshed the page – twice. When the red text box refused to disappear I grabbed a screen shot of it and this very routine post, suddenly became all about censorship, much more than it was about how many people are now living on food stamps.

I finished the post, told what happened, inserted the screen shot and posted it. It immediately disappeared after I posted it, although six altered versions had been held in draft form. They all disappeared. I began re-creating the post from scratch. I posted the re-creation and it held. I placed it on the front page. Later that same evening I put another front page up. When I logged on this am, the page version of what I had done had disappeared from my list of pages. I re-created the page version again, re-told the expanding story, and now it will remain on my main blog’s front page, along with this front page, until further notice. What’s taking place is dreadful.

There are only two options here:

1) The good men and women behind WordPress have no control of when the NSA goons seize control of their platform and do what they will with it,

Or

2) WordPress has on their staff, employees in freelance, who, unknown to WordPress, are working for the FED in some capacity to try to intimidate people like me on WP, and there are thousands of us.

I had planned on eventually spending thousands of dollars to support WordPress and keep all my news blogs hosted on their platform. That won’t happen now. I do not think that WP will ever admit what is, or what has happened, but this blogging platform is being surveilled. The minute someone somewhere tried to tell me “You do not have permission to do that” on my own news blog, the truth telling and the entire story changed.

At some point soon I will be vacating this platform, but not before I expose each and every incident where my own free speech as a reporter is suppressed [ or attempted to be suppressed ] from behind the scenes. So this page will also now remain up until further notice as the front page for Photonic Portal 20137. I know it’s not “photonic” in nature, but it IS pertinent. Here’s the story that inspired the goofy red box text, with a screen shot of the actual censosrhip effort. Can we say “epic fail?”

Preface: This page was first posted on 7.12.2011. It disappeared right after I first posted it on 7.12.2011 and it disappeared again on 7.13.2011. So I just re-posted it for a second time. Someone somewhere is attempting to censor free speech in America that dissents from any official information coming from the White House. This fact should be noted as one of the Top Ten Signs of Emerging Fascism. I want to thank readers for being here, and for caring enough to tell others about my work and for sharing the information they find on this blog. Please help me to continue to remain online. I need to vacate the heavily surveilled WP blogging platform asap. I need your financial support to do that. Browse the store or make a donation. Each time this post is removed I will re-post it. It will remain on the front page of this blog through Labor Day. I intend to make my point. Trying to silence factual dissenting speech in America will only make that speech grow louder.  I intend to keep researching, writing and speaking the truth to Americans, who are my friends, my family, my beloved countrymen, my neighbors. Thank you again for taking the time to read and share what you find on Alternative News Report.

“Today SNAP released the most recent food stamp numbers. Not surprisingly, we just saw another all time high 44.2 million poverty-level Americans relying on government funding for day to day sustenance. Granted the number appears to be plateauing, so all those who bought the change if not the ‘hype’, can rejoice as it may start declining next month: a development that is sure to be herald for Obama a 4th Putin-esque term.”

On 7.12.2011 I wrote:

There are approximately 300 million people in America in 2011. Between 44.2 and 47 million of them are now on food stamps. Did you know this? My first post on this topic from 15 minutes ago, disappeared into thin air when I tried to post it online.

I need to correct the erroneous percentages I see being bantered around in the media. It is NOT 14% of Americans who are now on food stamps. It is 20%.

Here is the bizarre little note that popped up in the WP dashboard when I tried to add the category “2011 Food Stamp Statistics” to my list of post categories:

WordPress is now being actively surveilled / monitored.  Someone somewhere [ I suspect the NSA ]  is trying to censor what is being posted if it’s deemed detrimental to the 2012 Obama re-election campaign. This is my second try. Here goes:

More on this topic, and what just happened, later. Please help me out and see to it that this post flies around the world. It’s not that the statistics are that dire. Americans who have eyes and a pulse know that what we are living through is NOT just a recession. It’s a depression. It’s the issue of being censored for trying to publish an article about it. That’s one of the top ten signs of emerging fascism: media and free speech censorship. Make sure that this post, with the screen shot I just grabbed, showing the telltale surveillance, and the attempt to intimidate me into NOT posting, gets into every email inbox in America. We are losing our free internet. And we are going to have to fight like hell to keep it.

Youtube Censorship Continues, Nibiru Footage is Being Removed

Copyright 2011-3011 By CK Hunter

In the past 8 years I have followed with keen interest, as have thousands of others, the news concerning the suppressed astronomy of Planet X aka Nibiru. Late in 2008 Nibiru became visible from certain locations on earth, notably either very far north, or very far south. I began collecting these videos and posting them to my blogs. By late 2009 I had amassed over 4 dozen citizen journalist video clips showing clearly an object which looks like a smaller second sun appearing in the early morning or late evening sky along side our own sun. These videos are not doctored and the evidence that something is there is without dispute in my opinion.

Now these videos are disappearing from Youtube. I have already discovered at least one dozen videos of Nibiru mysteriously missing, their Youtube user accounts either closed, or just deleted by Youtube for some reason that does not hold water. I have not a doubt in my mind at this point that a brazen and overt attempt to censor the truth about Nibiru is taking place. Here, below, is just one more example of what I am finding all over Youtube these days, which is important video evidence about Nibiru missing in action – just gone. The footage below was from an Italian newscast, highly credible, from January 2010. It’s gone. I’m left with a screen shot of what used to be there.

So when you locate good footage of Nibiru, download it right away. It might not be there the next time you look for it. The censorship of the internet is beginning.

White House Legislative Insanity: Cass Sunstein Wants to Tax Free Speech Websites

5.20.2010 Reposted for ANF Subscribers By CK Hunter 

Cass Sunstein, who wrote a white paper calling for “conspiracy theories” to be banned, wants to legally force Americans to “do what’s best for our society” and dilute their own free speech.

Obama Czar Wants Mandatory Government Propaganda On Political Websites 170510top2

Monday, May 17, 2010 

Disturbing audio has emerged of White House information czar Cass Sunstein, who in a previous white paper called for banning “conspiracy theories,” demanding that websites be mandated by law to link to opposing information or that pop ups containing government propaganda be forcibly included on political blogs. 

In an audio excerpt of an interview which was posted on the Breitbart.tv website today, Sunstein discusses how conservative websites should provide links to liberal websites and vice versa or even how political blogs should be made to include pop ups that show “a quick argument for a competing view”. 

Sunstein said that if this system couldn’t be implemented voluntarily, “Congress should hold hearings about mandates,” which would legally force people to dilute their own free speech. The Harvard Professor also said that blogs should be forced to list a random draw of 25 popular websites, such as CNN.com. 

Listen to the clip below. 

“The best would be for this to be done voluntarily,” said Sunstein, “But the word voluntary is a little complicated and people sometimes don’t do what’s best for our society,” he added (emphasis mine). 

“The idea would be to have a legal mandate as the last resort….an ultimate weapon designed to encourage people to do better,” Sunstein concluded. 

As we previously reported, in a January 2008 white paper entitled “Conspiracy Theories,” the Harvard Professor who is currently President Obama’s head of information technology in the White House called for “conspiracy theories,” that is any political opinion which didn’t concur with the establishment view, to be taxed or even banned outright. 

 

In a set of proposals designed to counter “dangerous” ideas, Sunstein suggested that the government could, “ban conspiracy theorizing,” or “impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories”. 

So-called “conspiracy theories that Sunstein said could be subject to government censorship included beliefs held by the vast majority of Americans, such as the notion that the JFK assassination occurred as part of a wider plot. 

In his white paper, Sunstein also cited the belief that “global warming is a deliberate fraud” as another marginal conspiracy theory to be countered by government censorship. 

Ludicrously, the Harvard Professor even characterized as “false and dangerous” the idea that exposure to sunlight is healthy, despite the fact that top medical experts agree prolonged exposure to sunlight reduces the risk of developing certain cancers. 

Essentially, Sunstein wants it to be written into law that the government can dictate the very nature of reality to Americans and that their opinions can only be voiced at best when accompanied by mandatory federal propaganda or at worst that Americans can be silenced entirely by federal decree. 

This callous disregard for the First Amendment represents a fundamental threat the very fabric of the country and is even more alarming considering the position of Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan with regard to free speech. During the Citizens United vs. FEC case, Kagan’s office argued that the government can ban books and political pamphlets. In separate writings, Kagan argued that the government could “disappear” free speech it deemed to be offensive.
