Amazon Censoring #Book Reviews

Censored

A few months ago, I was notified by my some friends that Amazon was censoring my book reviews due to the nature of the topics.  My instincts about this make me think this is because these book reviews, just like those of other individuals, are in fact being read, and taken into consideration by people.  As such, all of these reviews stand to help individual realize some deeper truths that are not ruminated upon, or even covered by the mainstream establishment.  Such is the power of the written word that we all have, and one of the many reasons why censorship is on the rise.

Jumping right into the cauldron of censorship, Amazon has censored many reviews of mine over the last year.  One of the first censorship instances I noticed was my review of the book The Secret Space Program & Breakaway Civilization [Richard Dolan Lecture Series Book 1] by Richard Dolan.  If you sift through all 5-Star reviews, you will not see my review anywhere.  However, you can see proof of the submission through a workaround by clicking on the picture under “customer images”, which is the only one available, and seeing the review under the alias ZyPhReX titled, ‘A Salient Excursion Into The Secret Space Program & Breakaway Civilization Concept, which was posted on August 31, 2016.  That’s the only way to see I reviewed the book, and if it wasn’t for the picture having been attached, nobody would even know it existed.  Evidence of this can be seen in this screenshot below:

If that was all the censorship taking place, it would be bad enough, but there’s more.

Amazon has also censored my review of the book, Sekret Machines: Gods: Volume 1 of Gods Man & War by Tom DeLonge & Peter Levenda, which was published earlier this year on March 10, 2017.  Again, if you search for the review of my book under the same alias, it is nowhere to be found.  Similarly, you can see a picture, the middle one in customer images, of my submission for it.  It’s a carbon-copy circumstance of the above scenario.  Evidence of this can be seen below.

CNSR2
In similar fashion, just a few days ago I realized that Amazon has censored a new review I just published on the phenomenal work by Dr. Mercola called Fat For Fuel – A Revolutionary Diet To Combat Cancer, which was just released.  This alternative health book stands to help countless people take back their health.  I posted the review the book yesterday, and although it was shown as one of the reviews yesterday and could be seen by others, it’s nowhere to be found for those seeking additional information today.  Evidence of the review being published can be seen below.

CNSR3

As one can gather, if I have already reviewed the book, there’s no possible reason for it not to be showing, except that of censorship.  I would chalk up a lone incident to coincidence, but its way more than that.  Those three book reviews are not the only reviews being censored by the way.  I could continue to catalog additional evidence, but that would matter not.  It shouldn’t have happened in the first place and shows Amazon clearly has an insidious agenda.  Obviously, Amazon has shown it does not respect freedoms in any way shape or form.

Given these circumstances, Amazon is leaving a lot to be desired.  Similar to all others who have historically controlled information, Amazon is positioning itself at the vanguard of the censorship by controlling what, and what doesn’t get allowed to be shared.  That is simply the corporate version of Orwell’s 1984 du jour.

This information is being brought forth in order to show others that reality is being manipulated in more ways than people imagine.  When honest and helpful book reviews become the target of blatant censorship, something is incredibly wrong with the system.  Then again, Amazon has already shown in the past how easy it is to go into people’s devices and delete a book already purchased without telling people, as they did when 1984 was delete from people’s devices.

These days, current facts and information are changing by the day, sometimes by the hour.  Being cognizant of what is, and isn’t truth, and what is, and isn’t being censored is the only way to attempt to grasp the totality of corruption that is plaguing society.

The only way to pierce the veil of lies, disinformation and propaganda is by doing your own due diligence and employing keen mental discernment in all instances.  Then and only then will we be able to separate the wheat from the chaff, and stand at chance at shifting the system that seeks not only to distort history and facts at every chance, but to also subjugate the individual.

Big Data Exposed

Think of Big Data as a malevolent technocratic Santa Claus: it sees you when you’re sleeping, it knows when you’re awake, it knows if you’ve been bad or good (even in advance!), so be good for goodness sake!

Pinocchio is the story of a marionette that dreams of becoming a real boy. He wishes upon a star, proves himself selfless, brave and true, and a kind fairy grants him his heart’s one true desire.

When the history of the 21st century is written, it could very well be the story of real boys and girls that willingly become marionettes. They stare blankly into their smartphones, prove themselves selfish, cowardly and false, and a group of technocrats puppeteer them.

Allow me to illustrate: You are a white, middle class American woman in your late 20s. You are active on Facebook, where you have a lot of friends, but you spend most of your time interacting with your sister, your boyfriend, and your BFFs from college. You watch a lot of 90s teen dramas but specifically skip the episode of Felicity where she cuts her hair. You work at a dental office in a mid-rise commercial building and eat lunch at the diner in the strip mall next door every Thursday. You used to fly home for Thanksgiving and Christmas every year on United, but you recently switched to Southwest. You like ballroom dancing on the weekends. Your last three purchases were a patchwork and quilting magazine, a 32 lb. bag of chicken-flavor puppy chow, and a silk tie (a present for your father’s birthday). You are agreeable but not very conscientious and you are prone to worry.

Et voilà. Your specially-crafted toothpaste advertisement is served.

Sound like the future of advertising? Wrong. It’s already happening thanks to Acxiom, Oracle Data Cloud, Epsilon, and a host of other data analytic marketing companies you’ve never heard of.

But you may have heard of one member of this new breed of Big Data-driven marketing firms in recent months: Cambridge Analytica. They’re the company that Trump employed to out-spin the Hillary campaign, or so we have been told ad nauseam by the strangely PR-like coverage of the firm that has been showered on them by the corporate lamestream #fakenews media since the end of last year’s (s)election cycle.

They bill themselves as a “data driven services” company that specializes in “data integration” and “audience segmentation” delivering “psychographic analysis” to drive targeted advertising campaigns or profile and influence potential voters. Or, in the significantly less buzzword-laden language of their company mission statement:

“To deliver Data-Driven Behavioral Change by understanding what motivates the individual and engaging with target audiences in ways that move them to action.”

No, that’s not a typo, that’s a selling point. The firm uses the slogan “Data driven behavior change” in their online promotional videos and offers the image of balls being directed down an inclined plane to illustrate how they can shape people’s behaviors along predetermined paths using data and marketing.

The company’s CEO, Andrew Nix, likes to go on stage at various conferences and deliver spine-chillingly Orwellian pronouncements about how Big Data is helping Cambridge Analytica create detailed psychological profiles of millions of unsuspecting “cosumers” and “voters.” These profiles can then be used to deliver individually-targeted messages to each of those millions of people, whether that message is used to sell a certain brand of toothpaste or generate interest in a certain political candidate.

If you watch any of Cambridge Analytica’s presentations, advertisements or PR spots on the national news (but I repeat myself), you’ll see that they like to brag about their ability to combine over 5000 pieces of data that they can collect on any given individual—from what airlines they’ve flown on to what magazines they’re subscribed to and everything else you can possibly imagine—to help create “psychographic” profiles of that person.

Whereas “demographics” is the division of the population into age groups and/or ethnicities, “psychographics” seeks to divide the population up along personality lines. Cambridge Analytica touts an “OCEAN” profile that rates individuals on the rather smearily-defined character traits of Openness, Conscientiousness, Extroversion, Agreeableness and Neuroses. By rating each individual in a target market on these characteristics, the company can deliver custom-tailored messages that appeal to different people in ways that specifically appeal to them. Thus, someone high on agreeableness and neuroses would be better persuaded to buy toothpaste by preying on their insecurity over their smile while those with higher degrees of openness and conscientiousness would respond to advertising explaining the properties and characteristics of the toothpaste.

The story of Cambridge Analytica is a particularly chilling one, involving secretive hedge-fund billionaires and British military psyops officers who, we are now being told, shaped the political landscape through “data-driven behavior change” to usher in the era of Brexit and Trump. To be sure, there is a fascinating and chilling story to be told there, but that’s a story for another time.

The larger story here is the story of Big Data, and it will be familiar to those who are reading this article. The long story short is that we have reached an inflection point in history. Large data broker services have been quietly purchasing and collating thousands of pieces of data on you and everyone you know, and the burgeoning data-driven marketing industry is now weaponizing that data in psychological operations designed to influence your choices, behavior and patterns of thought without you even knowing.

Think of Big Data as a malevolent technocratic Santa Claus: it sees you when you’re sleeping, it knows when you’re awake, it knows if you’ve been bad or good (even in advance!), so be good for goodness sake!

Actually, it’s worse than that. It doesn’t even matter if you’re trying to be good (or bad) for whatever sake; the social engineers are now honing their ability to make you want to buy things, do things, vote for or against certain candidates, and otherwise shape your daily thoughts and actions, without your knowledge or consent, by appealing to your individual psychological profile. And instead of running in the other direction, people are in a mad scramble to put even more intrusive data-collection devices in their homes to scoop up every last drop of information about their lives and send it off to corporations they often don’t even know exist.

The real boys and girls are uploading their lives to facebook and Twitter and Snapchat and Alexa and every other Big Data collection front. And in the process, they are giving the Big Data puppeteers the strings with which they will be pulled around like so many marionettes.

It’s a real question whether there is any way short of living in a cabin in the woods to avoid being scooped up in the Big Data dragnet. But the more fundamental question is whether the real boys and girls will ever realize, or even care, that they are slowly becoming Pinocchio.

Mainstream media conspiring with Google to rig all search results and silence dissenting views… Google becomes “Fake Search”

What does Google have in common with traditionally liberal news networks like MSNBC, ABC and CNN? On the surface, nothing much at all – the former is an Internet search engine and the latter are a couple of national broadcasting corporations with political hosts and commentators. If you dig a little deeper, however, it becomes clear that both the search engine and the liberal news networks have something in common after all, and it has to do with a vicious assault on the freedom of speech.

Last month, it was revealed that Google was going to begin tagging articles that come up in search results as either true or false. The effort, as the company explains, is meant to curtail the amount of inaccurate information, or “fake news,” being spread around the Internet. “With thousands of new articles published online every minute of every day, the amount of content confronting people online can be overwhelming,” Cong Yu of Google and Justin Kosslyn from fact-check partner Jigsaw said in a joint statement. “And unfortunately, not all of it is factual or true, making it hard for people to distinguish fact from fiction.” (RELATED: Google rewrites algorithm to manually crush independent media because mainstream media’s lies can’t compete with the truth on a level playing field.)

The Internet search engine’s fight against fake news was first confirmed in a BBC News interview with Google’s chief executive, Sundar Pichai, just days after the presidential election. “There have been a couple of incidences where… we didn’t get it right,” Pichai explained, referring to the spread of fake news across the search engine platform. “It is a learning moment for us and we will definitely work to fix it.”

Like adding fuel to a raging fire, the mainstream media indirectly assists Google in the quest to purge fake news from the Internet by constantly talking about it. If you think about it, the term “fake news” was really first introduced by the media and certain cable news networks during the presidential election. Even today, they continue to urge all of us to be wary of fake news, and insist that something must be done to curtail it. In this way, the media and Google work together as a machine, of sorts, with liberal networks providing the fuel and Google turning the gears.

While the spread of false information is certainly not something that should be encouraged, the real problem here is how one defines fake news, and who is defining it. Indeed, what may be considered fake news to a liberal may be considered real and legitimate to someone who is more conservative. When Google says that it is going to begin flagging articles that appear in search results and label them as either true or false, the immediate questions that should be asked are, one, what methods are used in their fact checking, and two, who specifically is verifying the information behind closed doors?

The thing about progressivism is that it works in a very slow, incremental fashion. While today liberals and Google may claim to only be targeting fringe websites such as white nationalist blogs or articles advocating anti-Semitism, tomorrow they could very well be targeting more traditional sites like the right-leaning Breitbart.com, Conservative Review or Fox News.

As any constitutionalist or liberty-loving American will tell you, this is absolutely an assault on the freedom of speech. Google and the mainstream media have essentially worked together to set in motion a national constitutional crisis, which they will continue to tell us is in our best interest because after all, they’re only trying to make sure that you get factual information. This is how modern day liberals operate – by telling us that all of these changes are for the good of the people, when in reality they are nothing but detrimental.

Perhaps we should begin calling Google “fake search,” since they seem to be so interested in purging the Internet of anything that is false or illegitimate.

Wireless Technologies Have An Epigenetic Effect On Children


Source: ActivistPost.com
Catherine Frompovich
May 17, 2017

Cindy Sage and Ernesto Burgio published a new paper “Electromagnetic Fields, Pulsed Radiofrequency Radiation, and Epigenetics: How Wireless Technologies May Affect Childhood Development” on the Bioinitiative 2012 website, which ought to dispel much of the disparity about EMFs not  being harmful, especially to children, and fetuses in particular, I’d like to add.

The authors talk about epigenetics affecting childhood development, something to listen up about very carefully in this day and age of neuro-developmentally-challenged children, something not widespread in former generations.   According to the 2015 “America’s Children and the Environment, Third Edition” [1]:

[A]pproximately 15% of children in the United States ages 3 to 17 years were affected by neurodevelopmental disorders, including ADHD, learning disabilities, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, autism, seizures, stuttering or stammering, moderate to profound hearing loss, blindness, and other developmental delays, in 2006–2008.

[CJF emphasis added.  It’s now 2017What are current figures?]

Here’s a graph showing the ‘history’ of epigenetics.

graphSource

Note when epigenetics began to appear on scientific and demographic radars—middle to late 1940s when, in my opinion, the Rockefeller cartel introduced the concept of the chemical and pharmaceutical [3-4-5] industries, which they and their cronies managed to control and shepherd into behemoth ‘medicine-killing-chemical, for-profit factories’, in my opinion.

From the 1800s onward into the 1940s, the chart registers no data, even though there were coal and wood-burning stoves keeping homes half-way warm; horse manure in the streets; poor public sanitation services, if any; questionable water sources; some gas lights, but still epigenetics doesn’t seem to appear.  Why?

In my opinion, man-made synthetic chemicals are involved as the key precipitating epigenetics factor or ‘driver’ because they are man-made molecules Nature and the human evolutionary processes have not encountered before nor had to ‘deal with’ before.  Therefore, man-made-chemicals cause interference with the modification of gene expression.  In my studies, I learned it can take up to a few hundred years for human adaptation to occur to a new element by the human species.

Consider all the thousands of man-made toxic chemicals since the 1940s!  Most egregious is the deliberate injection of ethylmercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, anti-freeze and other neurotoxins directly into children less than one year of age! Is there any wonder epigenetics are affecting human biochemistry and heritable traits?

So, what is epigenetics?

The study of the process by which genetic information is translated into the substance and behavior of an organism: specifically, the study of the way in which the expression of heritable traits is modified by environmental influences or other mechanisms without a change to the DNA sequence. [2]

Nothing, in my candid opinion, modifies an environment ecologically, physically or esthetically more than the use of toxic herbicides, pesticides and other man-made chemicals used almost like running water, with no apparent regard for biological, environmental or even legal consequences.

Modern agriculture and animal husbandry are two of the worst offenders, in my opinion.  They are the sources of most of humankind’s food, which provide chemically-contaminated ‘nutrition’, something no one should have to ingest and which apparently provides epigenetic factors.

All the above man-made ‘epigenetics’ pale in comparison to the “newer epigenetic kid on the block.”  You can’t see it; can’t smell it; but consumers are in love with it.  Nevertheless, it has quite a dedicated following, but delivers a nasty ghost-like ‘bite’ science doesn’t want to admit to.  What a conundrum!  Admission would devastate an entire industry: Microwaves, which emit an epigenetic factor, I contend: non-thermal radiation.  Microwave EMFs/RFs certainly precipitate idiopathic symptoms and/or resulting diseases.  There’s even a name for it: electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS).

All microwave-technology-operated gizmos emit non-thermal radiation waves, regardless of what ICNIRP disavows.

Ironically, there are 32% of microwave industry-funded studies finding non-thermal adverse effects and yet that industry and its associations claim there are no such things; further research is needed; and dogmatically set false safety standards based upon thermal effects, e.g., if it heats your skin from a certain distance, then it’s harmful.  Mobile phones, utility AMI Smart Meters, baby monitors, and all smart appliances and gadgets using ZigBee radio chips send out non-thermal waves.  You can take that statement to the bank.

Enter the Sage-Burgio paper.

In the Discussion section of their paper, we find this:

The wide array of pathophysiological effects of EMF and RFR exposures from wireless sources do not require “the breaking of molecular bonds” as done by ionizing radiation in order for physiologically damaging effects to occur. Epigenetic mechanisms alone can change fetal development in profound ways, disrupting health by causing changes in gene activation and expression without change in gene sequences. Environmental epigenetic influences in the fetal and neonatal development (i.e., epigenetic regulation of genes rather than direct genetic effects by gene mutation) have been plausibly established to cause pathophysiological changes that can result in altered neurological development. Symptoms of neurodevelopmental problems in children like retarded memory, impaired learning, cognition, attention, and behavioral aberrations that are similarly expressed in autism and ADHD have been reported in numerous scientific studies to occur as a result of EMF and RFR exposures. Epigenetic drivers are the most likely causes, and persistent exposures contribute to chronic dysfunction and addiction that can overwhelm adaptive biological responses.  [CJF emphasis added]

[….]

Global saturation by wireless device emissions is our largest modifiable and preventable childhood contaminant. It may exacerbate health harm from chemical toxins such as environmental tobacco, mercury, lead and pthalate  [ sic—s/b phthalate] toxicity that already burden the developing child.

[….]

Public health experts, educators and psychologists have gained a strong new tool to argue against pulsed radiofrequency radiation saturation by wireless devices and infrastructure. Wireless exposures are modifiable and largely avoidable by choosing wired for technology access. This may hold the largest potential for global preventative health action we have.[1]

Wi-Fi, cell and smart phones, smart TVs and any smart appliances with ZigBee chips emit epigenetic factors or ‘drivers’, I offer. Consumers ought to take seriously warnings about the microwave industry’s misleading “tobacco science,” which pontificates there are only thermal waves.  The moon is made of Swiss cheese too!  There are a lot of holes in the moon theory as there are in microwave ‘science’.

 We hear media reports encouraging children to interact with peers rather than send text messages.

Isn’t it time to rethink what epigenetic effects lurk around us from the technology we have become addicted to?  And, it is an addiction.  Try leaving your cell phone home for the day.

Mainstream Media Blackout: PROOF: Something Very NEFARIOUS is Going On At You Tube

It has now become crystal clear that the You Tube ‘Adpocalypse’ is just phase one of a far more sinister plan to sabotage successful You Tube channels in order to kill competition, robber Barron style, so that the corporate, legacy and mainstream media can yield more power, control and eyeballs on You Tube. What’s being done to the SGT Report You Tube channel can be quantified by alarming statistics which prove, the fix is in. As John D.

Robert Parry Warns – The New York Times is Cheering on Censorship Algorithms

Michael Krieger
May 3, 2017

The 2016 Presidential election was a gigantic wakeup call for the corporate press in the U.S. not so much because Hillary Clinton lost, but because it represented the end of mainstream media’s ability to seamlessly force feed narratives down the throats of a gullible and pliant American public. The marketplace of ideas had been flooded by the internet and the people made a decision. The media wars came and went, and the corporate press lost, badly.

The election of Donald Trump was as much a middle finger to the U.S. corporate press as anything else, and the corporate media didn’t take too kindly to that. Rather than admit failure, refocus and compete within the freewheeling information age, the corporate media has resorted to endless whining and support for tech-overlord censorship. It simply knows it can’t win a fair fight, so it has decided to cheat.

As Robert Parry of Consortium News explains in his recent post, NYT Cheers the Rise of Censorship Algorithms:

Just days after sporting First Amendment pins at the White House Correspondents Dinner – to celebrate freedom of the press – the mainstream U.S. media is back to celebrating a very different idea: how to use algorithms to purge the Internet of what is deemed “fake news,” i.e. what the mainstream judges to be “misinformation.”

The New York Times, one of the top promoters of this new Orwellian model for censorship, devoted two-thirds of a page in its Tuesday editions to a laudatory pieceabout high-tech entrepreneurs refining artificial intelligence that can hunt down and eradicate supposedly “fake news.”

Since the Times is a member of the Google-funded First Draft Coalition – along with other mainstream outlets such as The Washington Post and the pro-NATO propaganda site Bellingcat – this idea of eliminating information that counters what the group asserts is true may seem quite appealing to the Times and the other insiders. After all, it might seem cool to have some high-tech tool that silences your critics automatically?

But you don’t need a huge amount of imagination to see how this combination of mainstream groupthink and artificial intelligence could create an Orwellian future in which only one side of a story gets told and the other side simply disappears from view.

As much as the Times, the Post, Bellingcat and the others see themselves as the fount of all wisdom, the reality is that they have all made significant journalistic errors, sometimes contributing to horrific international crises.

For instance, in 2002, the Times reported that Iraq’s purchase of aluminum tubes revealed a secret nuclear weapons program (when the tubes were really for artillery); the Post wrote as flat-fact that Saddam Hussein was hiding stockpiles of WMD (which in reality didn’t exist); Bellingcat misrepresented the range of a Syrian rocket that delivered sarin on a neighborhood near Damascus in 2013 (creating the impression that the Syrian government was at fault when the rocket apparently came from rebel-controlled territory).

These false accounts – and many others from the mainstream media – were countered in real time by experts who published contrary information on the Internet. But if the First Draft Coalition and these algorithms were in control, the information scrubbers might have purged the dissident assessments as “fake news” or “misinformation.”

The Times quotes the promoters of this high-tech censorship effort without any skepticism:

“‘Algorithms will have to do a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to fighting misinformation,’ said Claire Wardle, head of strategy and research at First Draft News, a nonprofit organization that has teamed up with tech companies and newsrooms to debunk fake reports about elections in the United States and Europe. ‘It’s impossible to do all of this by hand.’”

The article continues: “So far, outright fake news stories have been relatively rare [in Europe]. Instead, false reports have more often come from Europeans on social media taking real news out of context, as well as from fake claims spread by state-backed groups like Sputnik, the Russian news organization.”

Beyond failing to offer any evidence of Russian guilt in these “fake news” operations, Tuesday’s Times story turns to the NATO propaganda and psychological warfare operation in Latvia, the Strategic Communications Center of Excellence, with its director Janis Sarts warning about “an increased amount of misinformation out there.”

The Stratcom center, which oversees information warfare against NATO’s perceived adversaries, is conducting “a hackathon” this month in search of coders who can develop technology to hunt down news that NATO considers “fake.”

Sarts, however, makes clear that Stratcom’s goal is not only to expunge contradictory information but to eliminate deviant viewpoints before too many people can get to see and hear them. “State-based actors have been trying to amplify specific views to bring them into the mainstream,” Sarts told the Times.

 The key thing to understand about this push, is that it has nothing to do with fighting back against actual fake news, i.e. stories that promote total fabrications. The existence of truly fake articles is simply being used as a smokescreen to disappear alternative opinions from the public debate. That is the real intent of the “fake news” meme.

With the myth of the “American dream” rapidly being exposed as a sham, the corporate press needs to be able to efficiently propagandize the public in increasingly absurd ways, but the problem is much of the public no longer believes its nonsense. How can corporate media push Americans to support things against their interests and better judgement such more war, billionaire worship, and the surveillance state without silencing the opposition? It can’t, which is why it needs to marginalize intelligent and thoughtful people espousing a different perspective.

I know for a fact that the corporate press doesn’t care in the least about “truth” or “fairness” in reporting following my own personal experience with The Washington Post. Recall that last November, in the aftermath of the media’s panic at Hillary’s loss, the paper pushed forth slanderous accusations against 200 alternative websites including Liberty Blitzkrieg. For more on that truly deplorable episode, see: Liberty Blitzkrieg Included on Washington Post Highlighted Hit List of “Russian Propaganda” Websites.
