    This video, might at first not seem to be about the topic of this thread, and as the title of this thread uses the word 'internet' rather than 'social media', it's technically true.

    But, I do wonder if the issue covered in this video will extend as far as social media companies.

    Remains to be seen.

    Jesse Liu, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, and John Demers, head of the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) National Security Division (NSD), unsealed a grand jury indictment of Gregory Craig, who served as White House counsel to Barack Obama, on April 11.

    It’s the NSD that is tasked with enforcing the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), a law passed by Congress that requires all persons working on behalf of a foreign government or entity to disclose that by registering and affirming they are representing foreign and not U.S. interests in their influencing activities.

    I think this goes here... The media is being censored and we are censoring ourselves via "political correctness". The end is planned where we will not be able to see or hear anything the authorities do not want us to access.

    Beyond Censorship: Destroying Free Thought Online

    Often, when listening to a video I'm doing something in the house, painting recently, or out for a walk so I don't always catch everything. When I first listened to this video I was also occupied and missed a few things. So in looking for something on censorship to send to a friend I remembered this one and was re-listening to it last night while putting UV film on some windows.

    At 16:56, first Mr Obama, then Mr Trump along with Mr Gates here and there, give their views on information and the internet. But the whole vid is worthwhile. It's about 50 minutes so you may want to be painting also

    Mr Trump's frustration with his late ordeal shows. But one thought leads to another and it reminded me of a Florida court decision about 10 - 12 years ago regarding the reporting of news. The court ruled that the media did not have an obligation to tell the truth in reporting.

    The case originated with a team of reporters from Fox investigating the dangers of bovine hormone rGBH in milk. After the report was read on the news, Monsanto got in touch with the station and requested it be withdrawn with an apology. The reporters refused citing their ethics and obligations to report the truth.

    They were then offered a financial package deal to withdraw and apologize then leave their positions but they refused and were fired. It went to court and that decision has been used as a precedent ever since.

    Addressing this issue would be a step in the right direction.

    But I digress, here's the video on censorship.

    This is NOT a good omen — for any of us.

    The last archive is here, as of 2 days ago.
    His own site http://nomorefakenews.com is still up and running, so presumably he'll soon tell us just what happened.

    This is not good.

    Oddly I was wondering just a few days ago if he would be suspended. He has the free blog and WP has no hesitation it seems, in dropping dissenters.

    "... I told you so..." from Jim Stone:

    I have stated repeatedly that if you are not on your own platform, you will be de-platformed

    How many times over the years? A couple times a year at least - more than 10 times - and worse, if your OWN web site is using Wordpress just because it was a Cpanel feature that came along with it, they will deplatform those also. Probably the only safe thing to use is Weebly site builder that is also in Cpanel from most providers, but I don't use that either, I am just straight hand typed code. Weebly is supposed to be OK for a novice. ANYWAY -

    I will once again repeat what I have said all along. Wordpress, Blogger and ALL of these other venues (need I mention Faceplant?) were set up to trap conservatives and others going against the leftist status quo, with great service provided for years for FREE, - great service that made it unnecessary to know how to run a web site (so many opted to not spend a couple weeks and learn it) and instead posted to these TRAPS that made it all look well. And the trap has now sprung.

    This web site is not exactly invisible I'd say, for years it was well above Popular Science, the SPLC and many other well known sites (and probably still is) so it is not like my warning was invisible.

    But, was it believed?

    [...]

    Anyway -
    to anyone else out there who thinks Wordpress and others are going to be there for them tomorrow - if you really think so, you are blind as a bat in total darkness and flying in an anechoic chamber.

    Reality is going to hit you like the wall. You had damn well better get your site moved NOW and if places like Blogger could handle you, a shared server will work fine. Do it cheap. You'll be OK. Preferably in Iceland. Look up Orangewebsite and set up there. You'll at least have a chance.
    If you don't heed this warning and end up gone, you never realized just how bad the situation is, obviously. And that will reflect STRONGLY on the legitimacy of your reporting - if you did not see this coming who the * are you anyway? Had to say it. Not polite. Had to say it.

    So many are gone now that there are few left to save. But it is not like I did not warn people, I did, in spades.

    Don't expect tomorrow to not bite your *ss like a starved piranha, you had better move off enemy provided platforms like your butt is getting chewed or you won't have a place at all.
    ONCE YOU DON'T HAVE A PLACE, YOU CAN'T TELL PEOPLE WHERE YOU WENT. You'll be starting from ABSOLUTE ZERO with total search engine censorship.

    You'll be erased.

    You will not be "starting over".
    GET OFF YOUR BUTT NOW AND PREVENT YOUR ERASURE.

    How Exit From The Matrix could change your life

    by Jon Rappoport

    One way or another, 99.99999999% of the world's "spiritual systems" get around to denying individual power. Eventually, they all proclaim that power is coming from someplace else.

    Modern science is no better. It defines the mind as the brain and nothing more.

    On top of all this, individuals limit their own power, which, if exercised, would exceed reality.

    Imagination is the often-forgotten force in the core of the human being.

    In putting together my mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, I laid out two decades of work in developing specific techniques and exercises that expand the scope and range of the imagination.

    These exercises make the creative power of the individual available.

    This is the journey from What Already Exists to What Could Exist.

    Not just in theory, but through action, through employing untapped reservoirs of power and energy.

    For a brief time there was a key in ancient Tibet, where practitioners and students committed themselves to the expansion of imagination in unprecedented ways.

    Before the doldrums of top-down rule set in, these adventurous souls practiced techniques that liberated the creative impulse to an extraordinary degree.

    I found clues and used them. Applied them to the world we live in now.

    Exit From The Matrix is the realization of those clues, fleshed out, clarified, and embedded in techniques and exercises anyone can do on a daily basis.

    As best as I can tell, Google search engine seems to censoring search results from projectavalon.net for Jon Rappoport.

    Google returns just 1 hit, dated back in June 25, 2018, for site:projectavalon.net "jon rappoport", between June 1, 2018 and today May 12, 2019.

    Yandex returns 513 hits for "projectavalon.net" "jon rappoport" between June 1, 2018 and today May 12, 2019.

    About a half hour ago, I used my Google Search Console Webmaster account for projectavalon.net to request that Google run their run their crawler over this specific page. So far this page, or any other page since June of 2018 on our site mentioning "Jon Rappoport" is not showing up in Google's search index.

    Google is crawling other pages on ProjectAvalon.net, so they still know and admit that we are here. They can return many, some quite recent, results for the search site:projectavalon.net "corey goode"

    P.S. -- Hey GoogleBot -- I dare you to index this comment .

    I was able to get the Google Bot to look at this page, with the above efforts.

    It has now been about an hour and a half since Googlebot loaded this page.

    Google still cannot return any results for site:projectavalon.net "jon rappoport" that are more recent than June 25, 2018.

    ===

    So, not only is Jon Rappoport "off the air", any effort to start a wider discussion about this amongst other websites, or to share information with others searching for information about the suspension of Jon Rappoport's blog, is also hindered.

    So, not only is Jon Rappoport "off the air", any effort to start a wider discussion about this amongst other websites, or to share information with others searching for information about the suspension of Jon Rappoport's blog, is also hindered.
    Looking at the Avalon server logs to see who has visited this page, I see that about half the visitors are Avalon members, and that the other half are guests who appear to be browsing our forum, sampling a few threads that look interesting to them, including it happens this thread.

    I did not see anyone who came directly to this thread from a search engine.

    A year or two ago, another person I follow, Miles Mathis, had his website go down for a day, due to technical issues. I posted that outage here, and Miles happened on my post, from a Google search for any reports of his website outage. He sent me an update to post on his website's status, and a correction to what I had already posted.

    No such connections will happen this time, for Jon Rappoport will not find this thread with a Web search.

    It's not just Google. For various reasons, no search engine that I can find so far has found these posts of the last day on this thread about Jon Rappoport.
