Why are they so afraid? That is the only message I hear. To me, deplatforming and censorship says the underlying and triggering message is right; not wrong.

Life does exist without a cell phone, without FB, without Twitter, etc - never touch them myself ...... but not without the "internet", which belongs to all of us, right?

FB keeps blocking and unblocking Pepe Escobar so he now mirrors his FB posts to his VK account. Maybe consider setting up a VK account - and perhaps Turcopolier mirroring to a blogging site outside of US jurisdiction?

What is coming next is the outright suppression of access to websites. The US recently started blocking access to foreign sites by messing with the DNS. Eventually this kind of repression will come at US websites as well. For that reason I am setting up a VPN.

I believe in the freedom of access and expression in the internet like the first amendment freedom of speech - this is central to how I image the US where I was born and live. The new regime that has coalesced in the last four years - Big Tech with the older centers of power in the US - intends to burn out alternative sources of information and narratives. I refuse to live and think or submit to their narrative prisons. This struggle is not just for us but also for our children.

Yes, on my FB account, I linked to Larry's article. The link has since vanished because it "violated Facebook spam policy."

Spam? YGBSM.

Larry must be over the target.

Keep up the great work, gentlemen!

Free speech is an all or nothing concept, we will learn the hard way(or not). As the "public square" increasingly becomes synonymous with the spaces created by companies such as Facebook,twitter, and whatever that newfangled Communist Chinese one popular with the kids is called: various multinational borg ghouls will have and exercise free reign to overtly control and shape information to their own ends. May sound crazy but IMO all these stupid social networking companies/the infrastructure they run on(maybe the entire internet) need to be nationalized...the only downside I see to it is it would stifle innovation, but I could go with the extinction of whole particular branches of that type of "human progress".

What is a VK site?

Walrus

Col. Lang, your page is next. You need to migrate SST offshore before typepad tries to kill it. I don't know how to do this.

From Wikipedia:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/VK_(service)

In a great irony, samizdat for Americans repressed by the State, from Russia with love.

The World Turned Upside Down, indeed...

Col. Lang,

It’s a Russian Facebook clone.

Walrus is unfortunately likely to be correct.

Perhaps at least a mirror of SST registered in Iceland, top level domain code .is.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/.is

See the "External Links" section for the website of the domain registrar for Iceland.

What is happening now to the Conservative Treehouse website, being dumped by their hosting service gives an idea of what is to come under President Harris should the effort to correct the ballot counts to eliminate all manner of frauds come up short. The Clampdown...

The trick is to embed it in another link the way another poster did. Basically, meaninginhistory.blogspot.com linked your post. The link to your post is included in the story "Larry Johnson on the Scytl Raid." This may be a workaround against the censors.

Deap

How did they take this down? Did it just disappear. Did they send you a notice. Did they give a reason. Is there an appeal process?. is SST a "Facebook" page? All very mysterious for me - tech luddite here.

Pretty damn scary by any measure, since that was one heck of an explosive article. Did they take down the Sydney Powell Fox interview with Maria Bartiromo?

How did they "know" the LJ article was even up? Personal observation of SST, infiltration by a commenter with an agenda who targeted this post, an algorithim that picked up certain word patterns?

Who has the most to gain from this brazen act of private censorship? Insiders or outsiders. To what end. Ham-handed or exquisitely strategic to their own interests.

@Bubba Schwartz

"Larry must be over the target."

If you are crazy or demonstrably wrong, they ridicule you. If you are correct, then they censor you.

The stench of their fear is palpable. Vote fraud is a crime, yes. However, this goes far beyond ordinary grubbing for money or power. It is an act of war not only against the American people but an act of war against Western Civilization itself.

Razor

A mass deletion of these social media fascists and using alternative search engines (duckduckgo.com) for example, would soon strip these entities of their power.

fotokemist

The Saker moved his site to servers in Iceland several years ago.

Steve Ogle

VK is supposedly the Russian version of facebook.

Outrage Beyond

VK is a Russian clone of FB.

coboarts

...shhhh..............

james

i can't believe how much time and energy everyone has devoted to fakebook... it is quite sad... i hope fakebook sinks in the mess of its own making.. anyone who tries to communicate on fb is wasting their time...

james

@pat - VK is the russian equivalent to fakebook..

MisanthropicUSA

Col. Lang, VK is VKontakte, it is essentially Russian facebook.

elaine

Colonel, Perhaps Spenser using the term VP site is just short for saying VPN site, something you may read about on the net. I got the best results by searching "what is a VPN site" rather than just searching VPN site. That's my best guess.

They gave me a notice on FB that LJ's post did not "meet their community standards" and removed it from my FB page.

LondonBob

Yes I shared Patrick Basham's article on electoral fraud in the Sunday Express on Linkedin, I checked a day later and it had been removed.

The Democracy Institute has a copy of the original.

Give what has just happened to CTH and hard though it is to acknowledge, I fear Walrus is likely right about SST becoming a target in the not too distant future. A mirror of SST in a jurisdiction harder for the censors to get at would seem prudent.

I'd also support Razor's sentiment. Until such time as we are forced to use censoring platforms like FB and search engines which routinely suppress conservative content (Google) the way to defeat this is to simply move to alternatives. Duck Duck Go is a simple move - just change your search engine in your browser preferences.

Delete your FB accounts, move elsewhere and encourage your friends to do the same. This is harder, given the network effect FB has achieved, but the cost can be mitigated if like minded folk move to the same place. VK does seem a popular choice for those opposed to the liberal globalists' ambitions to control dissenting voices thru big tech censorship.

My own view is that continuing to support censoring platforms like FT and Twitter is incompatible with my principals on freedom of speech. I also make extensive use of Tor, which like a VPN obfuscates my IP address and makes it impossible for my ISP to see my browsing habits. Paranoid? Maybe, but many of the views expressed here may soon be considered dissident and Tor was specifically designed to help dissidents in places like China avoid the repercussions from accessing forbidden knowledge & views.

Let us pray it does not come to this, but take practical measures in case it does.

Eric Coomer, Dominion Voting Systems VP, is being removed from the internet. He is pro ANTIFA and vehemently anti-Trump in his social media posts. Dominion has removed his name from their website, though still employed there. He is said to have fixed Dominion’s software to steal the election from Trump.
