March 1919 post-WWI military parade.  New York Gov. Al Smith (far left), Bill Hearst (center), Franklin Roosevelt (far right).
One of the more enduring myths accepted as reality in our modern society is that America has a relatively free press. The ruling authorities and their entrenched accomplices promote that lie as diligently as they work to ensure that it never again becomes true. America did have a mostly free and independent press until the... Read More

If you want a vision of the future, don’t imagine “a boot stamping on a human face — for ever,” as Orwell suggested in 1984. Instead, imagine that human face staring mesmerized into the screen of some kind of nifty futuristic device on which every word, sound, and image has been algorithmically approved for consumption...

The United States ranks 48th among nations for press freedom, according to Reporters Without Borders. Because few other countries have the equivalent of our First Amendment, learning that we rank below Botswana and Slovenia may come as a surprise. Mostly, the organization pins this dismal state of affairs on Trump's attacks on the news media.... Read More
As Jeffrey Epstein’s accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell appears to have fallen off the face of the Earth, it’s little remembered in the media how I fought a long war against her father Robert and the part I played in his downfall. It would be scarcely worth recalling at this distance if it did not shed light,... Read More

The decision of the San Francisco school board to obliterate the historic murals in George Washington High School is not just another instance of Identity Politics foolishness. It is also a terrifying illustration of the drastic mental decline of what is called “the Left”. Back in the 1930s there was a Left that had brains.... Read More

Justify your actions by the need to protect the weak and vulnerable. This is the first rule of political rhetoric. If you bomb Syria, do not admit you did it to install your puppet regime or to lay a pipeline. Say you did it to save the Aleppo kids gassed by Assad the Butcher. If... Read More
Journalists did not appreciate the implications for themselves of the contrived and false indictment of Julian Assange by a corrupt US government. It was obvious to a few of us that the indictment by the US government, a government constrained by the First Amendment, of a foreign national for publishing leaked material, an action never...

Thirty-seven percent of American citizens are socialist or communist. That's far more people than voted for either Hillary Clinton (28% of eligible voters) or Donald Trump (27%) in 2016. The majority is voiceless. A privileged minority rules. The United States is a political apartheid state. If the left were allowed on the ballot in this... 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

Is China Being Framed?
I was researching Chinese censorship when–irony of ironies–I fell afoul of American censorship, providing an opportunity to update you on the state of the art under both regimes, starting at home, with the recent attempt to frame the President for crimes he did not commit. Like many attempts to frame people, events and nations–Vietnam, Iraq,... Read More

For seven years, from the moment Julian Assange first sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, they have been telling us we were wrong, that we were paranoid conspiracy theorists. We were told there was no real threat of Assange’s extradition to the United States, that it was all in our fevered imaginations. For... Read More

By almost every metric, Jews are the most protected ethnic group on earth. At the frontline of this protection, Jewish institutional security is heavily subsidised by taxpayers throughout the West. In Germany, the government provides an annual
Yesterday (April 10, 2019) a reader alerted me to the fact that I am being smeared on Wikipedia as a “vocal supporter of the current Russian government and its policies.” The reader also reports that an article in the Daily Beast calls me a “Putin worshiper.” The reader says that he tried to edit the...

News From Information Clearing House
I just heard from Tom Feeley: It is curious that the host of Information Clearing House has not responded to Tom Feeley. Legally it would seem that the host of the website could tell the owner of the website that the host company had decided to cease hosting the website. But the host should not... Read More

Jared Taylor, Martin Sellner Travel Bans Show The “Free World” Is Finished
Over the last decade, Amazon has gained a near-total monopoly over Internet book sales, and late last month, we saw the dangerous consequences of such intellectual control as the company suddenly banned dozens of books, many of them of excellent scholarly quality. Apparently, activist organizations such as the ADL and the SPLC had succeeded in... Read More

Who’s afraid of Alan Sabrosky? Whoever they are, they have the ability to monitor and censor YouTube live-streams in real time. And they apparently don’t want you to know what Sabrosky thinks about the Holocaust. That’s the obvious takeaway from the highly unusual example of YouTube censorship that disrupted the March 22 live broadcast of

Eileen Neff was my professor at the Philadelphia College of Art, and we became friends and even did coke together, though just once. In January, Eileen emailed to ask if I would consider writing a piece about Walt Whitman for the American Poetry Review, where she is a board member. Its late editor, Stephen Berg,... Read More

Jews Say Banning Black Books is SAFER Than Dialogue with Blacks
The banning of four Nation of Islam Black history books by Amazon, the largest bookseller in the world, provides a perfect opportunity to examine the wickedly racist ways Jewish power is wielded in America. Amazon provided no warning, no reason, no hearing, and no opportunity to respond—it was a blatant mockery of Amazon founder Jeffrey... Read More

Banning Black Historiography During Black History Month
As most are surely aware, the last year or two has seen a growing crackdown on free speech and free thought across the Internet, with our constitutionally-protected First Amendment rights being circumvented through the agency of monopolistic private sector corporations such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Although as yet our government has not gained the... Read More
The Internet is seen as a savior that will take over the function of honest reporting and free speech now that the print and TV media and NPR serve as the Ministry of Propaganda. This is true only if people migrate from Google, Facebook, Twitter, and so forth, to the alternatives that do not block... Read More
In de-platforming news this week, Amazon is now no longer selling books that present a dissident perspective. The de-platforming here is not total, though you have to think that "not" should probably be "not yet." As of this morning, March 1st,
Dear Readers: I have had to take measures to strengthen the website from outside interference. The entirety of the interview archive disappeared off the website.

The internet giant’s new wave of censorship
White Identity by Jared Taylor has just been delisted by Amazon. Like most cases of this kind, the digital book burning was in response to a hit piece. An article from Quartz called “black power” are still on sale suggests Mr. Taylor is correct. Another book targeted by the article—and banned by Amazon—was the
Alain Finkielkraut being confronted by yellow-vest protesters.
The French Jewish intellectual Alain Finkielkraut was recently profusely insulted by yellow-vests on the margins of a demonstration. This attack has been widely-portrayed as anti-Semitic, even though the yellow-vests in question explicitly attacked Finkielkraut as a Zionist. As

The Banning Campaign Against Gilad Atzmon
Jazz saxophonist and writer Gilad Atzmon was recently banned from playing at an assembly hall in Islington, a borough of London, by order of the Islington Town Council.

A Confidential Note to Various "Alt-Right" People and Others Dated: August 21, 2017 I've been very dismayed by the recent "political purge" being conducted by some of the largest Internet companies, in which numerous controversial websites of the "Alt Right" have suddenly been "disappeared," and in which all sorts of basic Internet services such as...

Please keep in mind that nowhere in the Western world does it pay to tell the truth. Whistleblowers, who are protected by federal law, are nevertheless framed and imprisoned for telling the truth while nothing is done about the government officials who commit the revealed crimes. With few exceptions such as Tucker Carlson, no journalist... Read More
