On the censorship of Michael Hoffman’s books by Amazon

[This article was written for the Unz Review] A couple of months ago I did an interview with one of the foremost scholars of rabbinical Judaism, Michael Hoffman. The occasion was the release of his latest book “The Occult Renaissance Church of Rome”. At the time I did not expect to have to ask for a follow-up interview with him, but when I learned that Amazon had censored his books

Death of the 2nd Amendment on the Internet

Note by the Saker: if you don’t care about the Second Amendment, consider this: if they can go after the Second, there is nothing stopping them going after the First next.  Besides, did you ever wonder why the Founding Fathers put the 2nd Amendment right after the 1st?  Yes, why does the 2nd one come 2nd?  Think carefully!

Dear friends, I have two things to report today: First, Sheikh Imran Hosein has had his book “Jerusalem in the Qur’an” (69’000 words) translated to Russian and he now is looking for somebody to check this text for errors.  Considering all the kind support our community has received from the Sheikh I would be delighted if a member of our community would agree to help him with this important task. 

France at war with alternative medias

By Cyrano They were thousands of people marching all over France for Freedom of Speech, chanting JE SUIS CHARLIE, after the killing of Charlie Hebdo cartoonists. No surprise there. Arguing in France is a national sport, the French just love to discuss the pros and cons of such and such ideas and to defend their point of view in discussions that can last forever. However, some had doubts about the

New Internet Censorship Bill Introduced

by Stephen Lendman Like most others in Congress, Senator Patrick Leahy is no progressive. He voted to fund imperial wars, regressive Obamacare, Wall Street-friendly financial reform, and other pro-business measures, including agribusiness-empowering bills, harming small farmers and consumers. Now he’s at it again. On September 20, he introduced S. 3804: Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA), “A bill to combat online infringement, and for other purposes.” Referred to committee,

Francis Anthony Govia for the Activist Post New U.S. legislation will impact every user of the Internet.

Obama’s War on the Internet

By Philip Giraldi for Campaign For Liberty The Ministry of Truth YES WE CAN! The Ministry of Truth was how George Orwell described the mechanism used by government to control information in his seminal novel 1984. A recent trip to Europe has convinced me that the governments of the world have been rocked by the power of the internet and are seeking to gain control of it so that they
