Late last April we were suddenly banned by Facebook and very soon afterwards had all of our pages entirely deranked by Google. This sudden purge came just days after I had published my original article strongly suggesting that the Covid-19 outbreak was probably due to an American biowarfare attack against China (and Iran). None of... Read More

So, according to Facebook and the Atlantic Council, I am now a “dangerous individual,” you know, like a “terrorist,” or a “serial murderer,” or “human trafficker,” or some other kind of “criminal.” Or I’ve been praising “dangerous individuals,” or disseminating their symbols, or otherwise attempting to “sow dissension” and cause “offline harm.” Actually, I’m not...

Imagine if an ordinary working man went on a rampage and killed 929 people and maimed 316 others. The media would naturally call such a man a serial killer or a homicidal maniac. Now imagine if a big pharmaceutical company did the same thing by releasing a vaccine that killed and maimed a similar number... Read More
Civil War Heats Up
The opening salvo against red state America is the article of impeachment against President Trump introduced on January 11 by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrat Representatives David Cicilline, Ted Lieu, and Jamie Raskin. So much for Biden’s promise to “unify the country.” What is the intent of this article of impeachment? It cannot possibly... Read More
As some of you may remember, late last year I briefly considered running ads on this website, but soon decided against it because the ads seemed too trashy or boring, and therefore distracted and annoyed me. I assume that many regular readers of our webzine had much the same reaction. I've never been fervently opposed... Read More

High Tech Oligarchs threaten democracy
The current electoral campaign differs from that of 2016 in that the media, both conventional and online, has realized its power and has been openly playing a major role in what might well prove to be a victory across the board for the Democratic Party. At least that is the expectation, bolstered by a flood... Read More

Yesterday, Twitter gave the New York Post the AmRen treatment. The right-leaning tabloid published a damning report about how Hunter Biden profited from his father’s influence, but Twitter users got this message if they clicked on the link. Potentially spammy or unsafe. Sure. This is the same message you get if you click on an... Read More
Earlier (2019): “I BEGGED PRESIDENT TRUMP TO DO SOMETHING BEFORE IT WAS TOO LATE!” Laura Loomer Appeals To Trump On Tech Totalitarianism (Which Also Threatens VDARE.com) Laura Loomer was right! She was deplatformed by Twitter and Big Tech but turned it into a central plank in her congressional run. However, even after she won the... Read More

Another attack on free speech by the Jewish State
Israel’s defenders both in the political realm and in the media have long used every weapon available to stifle any criticism of Israeli racism and its oppression of the Palestinians. In particular, the use of “anti-Semitism” as something like a tactical discussion stopper in deliberations about the Middle East has long been a staple of... Read More
A few days ago I received this warning message from Twitter: “Hi Gilad Atzmon, Your account, @GiladAtzmon has been locked for violating the Twitter Rules. I was accused by this anti social network of “violating” their “rules against hateful conduct.” The message took me by surprise as hatred is foreign to me. In fact, I... Read More

Early yesterday morning I received a worried note from one of our regular columnists saying our website no longer came up in any Google search results. Google and Facebook are the top gatekeepers to the global Internet, and in early May they had both purged us, with Facebook blocking our content and Google de-ranking all... Read More
According to the old saying, it's only an ill wind that blows no good. Whether true or not, America society has certainly been buffeted from some extremely ill winds of late. Our nation is still facing its worst disease epidemic in over 100 years together with the highest unemployment since the Great Depression. Efforts to... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] The brave spirits of Seattle originally named their new country Chaz, for Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. Just as all that was in play, we learned that Chaz has renamed itself to Chop, the Capitol Hill Organized Protest. Why? I asked around. Apparently the authorities... Read More

The American Deep State Strikes Back
After several months of record-breaking traffic our alternative media webzine suffered a sharp blow when it was suddenly purged by Facebook at the end of April. Not only was our rudimentary Facebook page eliminated, but all subsequent attempts by readers to post our articles to the world's largest social network produced an error message describing...

Just over a month ago I was riding high and celebrating the steady upward progress of our alternative media webzine. I proudly noted that our traffic had now far surpassed that of the venerable New Republic, a century old publication that had spent decades as America's most influential opinion magazine. But pride goeth before the... Read More
Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook has recently established a content moderation oversight board featuring academics from all around the world. Its goal is to respond to growing criticism of Facebook's attacks on free expression and political dissent by allowing an appeals process these experts will weigh in on. On paper, the board claims to be a free... Read More

The situation surrounding the censorship of Southfront on Facebook has turned into a display of the stereotypical Big-tech super villain. Facebook has published a report justifying its actions, which is an egregious, textbook example of fake news. The report contains only disjointed accusations under the cover of meaningless words, and without a single example being... Read More

My morning newspapers had recently mentioned Facebook's plans to crack down on misinformation related to our ongoing Covid-19 epidemic, and probably like most other readers I just nodded my head. After all, many Americans might die if cranks or pranksters began promoting highly dubious cures to the deadly disease, perhaps even suggesting that people should... Read More
Between efforts to censor information critical of Buttigieg on social media and harass independent media outlets and their reporters at his rallies, it appears that a concerted effort is underway to control the narrative around the DNC primaries After the scandal surrounding the recent Iowa Caucus, the 2020 presidential campaign of Pete Buttigieg claimed victory...

He’s the Che Guevara of the 21st Century
He was the 21st century’s most accomplished military leader—and a deeply spiritual man. Before they killed him, they didn’t even want you to know his name. After martyring him, they realized their mistake—and pulled out all the stops to stop you from finding out that he was a great man, a modern-day Che Guevara. An... Read More
In September of last year, the Zionist social media page Facebook engaged in electoral meddling by arbitrarily banning the large accounts of radical nationalist parties Forza Nuova and CasaPound. In a rare victory for free speech in the West, Judge Stefania Garrisi found that Facebook had violated the rights of CasaPound in civil court in... Read More

Laura Loomer Appeals To Trump On Tech Totalitarianism (Which Threatens VDARE.com)
Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook amped up its censorship this week when it announced it had banned an astonishing array of dissidents such as Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Louis Farrakhan, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, and other “extremists” from its platforms, which include Instagram. This Tech Totalitarianism coup against President Trump’s own supporters seems finally to have... Read More

Facebook is receiving congratulations from the darkest corner of the web for reverting to the discredited gatekeeping of the legacy media and further eroding freedom of inquiry on the Internet, which in its early days gained popularity as an antidote to the very censorship we see Facebook (and Paypal and Amazon) imposing. When they were... Read More
Harvard scientists insisted last year we had been visited by guests from a galaxy far, far away. Well, almost. The suspected spacecraft Oumuamua first drew close to the earth, but then it accelerated, sped by our planet and disappeared somewhere into Deep Space. What went wrong? Why did the little green men of Vega, the... Read More
Forget China, the Internet police are already here in U.S.
In the Summer of 2007 I traveled to China to speak at a conference concerning security preparations for the Olympic Games, which were to be held in Beijing the following year. While transiting Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport I noticed something odd. The internet sites that I checked every day would not open, to include... Read More
We all live in the Age of the Algorithm. So here’s a story that not only encapsulates the age, but dwells on how the algorithm obsession can go horribly wrong. It all started when Facebook censored the iconic photo of «napalm girl» Kim Phuch, which became a symbol of the Vietnam War recognized all over... Read More
A year ago yesterday Facebook made its initial public offering, so a retrospective might be in order. As I said at the time, I was highly skeptical of the launch. My doubts seem to have been vindicated as the stock is now down 31 percent since my comment (in a period when the general market... Read More
This is recent discussion on a Facebook post to which I replied, which demonstrates some of what we're up against when talking about biological differences between people: [Lady #1]: If you ever want to really depress yourself, look up the male vs. female student ratios of any graduate department of history. (Or, you know, mostly... Read More
Or, A Useful—if Inadvertent—Demonstration of the Power of the Information-Freedom Death Star
[Counterpunch kindly ran this piece on its website. However, the formatting gremlins attacked them and some of the quotes I made from Mr. Rogin's article weren't displayed properly, making them look like my words instead of his. This was completely inadvertent and I've asked Counterpunch to correct the error. If necessary, please refer to this... Read More
