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 combat these ills have raised our unprecedented national debt to levels last reached at the end of World War II, but this time lacking the productive industrial base for servicing it.

Most recently, the easing of an unprecedented national lockdown has been quickly followed by the worst national outbreak of riots and looting in two generations, with many of our historical statues and monuments falling prey to this American Cultural Revolution. We’re now only a step or two away from seeing mobs attack and destroy the Jefferson Monument, Monticello, and Mount Vernon, along with every other symbol of America’s “tainted” past.

Meanwhile, our political leadership seems incompetent, helpless, or complicit in this mass insanity. A key point of sharp division has been that while the Republicans seem intent on provoking a crazy war with China, the Democrats strongly disagree, instead preferring an equally crazy war with Russia.

 

Naturally enough our small webzine has been tossed and turned in recent months on these broader currents as we seek to fulfill our stated mission of providing convenient access to “interesting, important, and controversial perspectives largely excluded from the American mainstream media.”

During March and April, our readership set new records, partly propelled during the latter month by my own long article pointing to the very considerable evidence that the deadly Covid-19 pandemic had been the result of an appallingly-reckless American biowarfare attack against China (and Iran).

Then just a week after the release of that extremely popular piece, we were suddenly purged from Facebook, soon followed by a similar purge by Google.

For five years, we had freely discussed the most controversial topics imaginable without suffering any ill effect, much to the surprise of numerous observers. But now the world’s two most powerful Internet gatekeepers suddenly blocked all our past and future articles, which strongly suggests a cause-and-effect relationship. As a consequence, our regular daily traffic immediately declined by 15% or more, a serious blow to our steadily-growing readership.

But events that are disastrous for a country may be beneficial for those who report and cover them, especially they are willing to provide important perspectives avoided by others. The huge wave of protests, rioting, and looting that ushered in the month of May soon raised our traffic to new and unprecedented heights, and we have seen three record-breaking weeks in a row, with those trends so far continuing.

Just a few days ago, we published a lengthy analysis pointing to the strong evidence that George Floyd—universally hailed by the global media as a martyred police victim—had actually died of a illegal drug overdose. The early readership has been breaking records despite the Facebook and Google blacklisting.

How could such important facts have been totally excluded from all journalistic coverage? Well, consider that just a couple of weeks ago, the highly-regarded Editorial Page Editor of the New York Times—widely seen as a top 2021 contender to run our national newspaper of record—was purged merely for publishing an op-ed by a leading Republican senator that endorsed the proposed policies of President Donald Trump. In such a climate of media fear, mainstream reporters and editors are hardly eager to report inconvenient truths.

 

Still, our continued blacklisting by Facebook and Google does remain a handicap, and a consequence of the latter has been especially vexing to me.

For the last ten years, my article The Myth of Hispanic Crime had regularly ranked #2 among the 180 million search results Google returned for “Latino Crime” and the 60 million for “Hispanic Crime,” an achievement for which I had become inordinately proud. But although comparable search engines such as Bing and DuckDuckGo still rank my piece near the very top, Google has completely “disappeared” it.

I think a reasonable measure of a topic’s importance is the total number of search results it returns. Communism and Communists dominated the entire twentieth century and the political party of that name still holds sway in gigantic China. So a search on “Communism” returns 163 million results, a vast number but still somewhat below the total for “Latino Crime.” Imagine how an academic or journalist might feel if his article analyzing Communism had spent a full decade ranked #2 across the entire Internet, but Google had then suddenly decided to blacklist it for reasons entirely unrelated to its intrinsic or objective quality.

Search engines that manipulate their objective results for political reasons must surely develop a reputation for bias and begin to lose their credibility.

  1. Keep fighting the good fight, Ron – we’ll find you! Much gratitude to you and this site.

  2. Thank you for the forum; a critical public infrastructure for these times.

    Google and Apple both are being pursued on anti-trust grounds. Hopefully that goes somewhere, and it will if the DOJ/FTC has enough Teddy channeled. Critical for the civic space, and for the new industrial revolution. I’m cautiously optimistic they’re handling it.

  3. Stay the course. The Soviet Union collapsed under the weight of its internal contradictions. It will be the case with our “elites” as well.

    I suspect that was merely the straw that broke the camel’s back. Anti-regime and dissident “thought crimes” voiced on Unz.com are legion. It was only a matter of time.

    “The thought police would get him just the same. He had committed–would have committed, even if he had never set pen to paper–the essential crime that contained all others in itself. Thoughtcrime, they called it. Thoughtcrime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for a while, even for years, but sooner or later they were bound to get you.” — Orwell, 1984

  7. Ron, I think I mentioned this before. Your readers like your stuff, they will come to your site directly. Facebook as a new source is for lazy people. I still use Google, but if I feel I am getting the run around I will use DuckDuck. But I have been familiar with your site for about 2-3 years.

  9. interesting, important, and controversial perspectives largely excluded from the American mainstream media.

    Since almost all interesting, important and controversial perspectives have been largely excluded from the American mainstream media, you have your pick of millions of topics.

    One suggestion to deal with the information overload: ask your readers what they want covered that they don’t see here.

  10. unz.com has also been softbanned from reddit, as I mentioned in yesterday’s James Thompson post:

    >Reddit seems to have added unz.com to their “soft-ban” list. In effect, any time the unz domain is submitted on reddit it is automatically removed site-wide. I would guess the domain has been added to a spam or porn filter list. Moderators can still manually approve the site, or set up a subreddit specific rule to have it automatically approved. I am probably the only mod on the site who would bother doing that, and I have already set up that rule on /r/darkenlightenment. That won’t do you much good though, since 99.9% of the site is now a “no unz.com” zone. So, if you noticed traffic from reddit is way down, that is why.

    >This is perhaps better than a hard-ban though, which I wouldn’t actually be able to do anything about. It forces the use of archive sites to get around the filter. More detail on that below.

    >https://atavisionary.com/anti-evil-operations/

    This is very easy to test for yourself if you are a mod, and anyone can create their own sub to do just that.

    Any person who’s not politically helpless immediately recognized Facebook as the latest in a line of failed CIA terrariums starting with Prodigy and AOL (headquartered in Dulles, VA!) Instead, people with independent habits of mind have always gravitated to the freest self-expression on the internet. At one time it was Digby – then Dem party apparatchiks tried to shut dissenters up, got their ass kicked in candid discourse, and shut down comments. Then it was the Setzer blog – then Geithner hired Brad Setzer. Then it was nakedcapitalism, then Jesse Jackson worshippers and Soros thots decided to shut down stuff they didn’t agree with. Then it was whowhatwhy.com, but CIA put the horse’s head in Russ Baker’s bed and infiltrated the site with Dem fanatics. So here we all are. CIA has done its best to infiltrate this site, with no apparent effect on freedom of expression. Batten down for heavy weather, Doktor Unz. They’re going to try to disperse your unruly mobs of citizens illegally thinking for themselves.

    Maybe Ron can come up then with an alternative for JewTube, where Susanne Woijicic is wrecking havoc and demonetizing or downright removing all channels that slightly go against normie-land.

    Bitchute doesn’t work well, and I am not aware of any other viable alternatives. Well, I am not a great fan of video anyway, I prefer the written text, but still, it would be nice to have an alternative to the YouTube/Google monopoly. Facebook video is not an option either, of course.

    I had a sense that the blacklisting would backfire. Great news.

    It’s good to keep pressing on Google for its delisting of your article as well. They need more pressure than they’re able to bear and soon at that.

  17. OK, UR survived the shot fired at it by Big Tech, but what are you going to do when your Domain Name Registrar decides to drop UR, à la NetSol v. VDare? If you started your own registry, you might have a nice sideline business serving all the other sites being purged to the Dark Web by the Thought Police.

    DuckDuckGo.com is great; you should set it as the default search engine in your browser. It shows Ron’s article as the number one result for “Hispanic crime” (no quotes). And it doesn’t track you.

  21. @Henry's Cat

    If you already know what you’re looking for. Google failing to find that for you would then be a failure in a functional sense.

    So far as “discovery” is concerned, we have been for all intents and purposes completely wiped out. Websites typically get 30-50% of their visitorship from search engines, which are almost entirely monopolized by Google in the Anglosphere. It also cuts off a major pipeline of new readers, which is all the more relevant in an environment when the UR’s authors can’t share their own articles across more and more platforms.

    I’m using Windows 10 and Mozilla. I didn’t count them but I think it took three clicks to switch from Google to DuckDuckGo. If you don’t switch it’s only because you don’t give a fuck.

  23. SafeNow says:

    So far so good, but a 2019 FBI internal memo leaked by Yahoo said that a potential for terrorism exists where the information or theory is “usually at odds with official or prevailing explanations of events.” I worry that this evinces a deep-state predilection for silencing a website in which participants are strongly openminded, and even reflexively skeptical, regarding established explanations. Further, the Facebook silencing could enhance this thinking; ”If it’s good enough for Facebook…” would be the bandwagon effect. And further, this possibility would occur in the context of a Kamala Harris-appointed Justice Department. I can just imagine the discussion…”And these Unz guys use graphs, and charts, and they understand data, that’s dangerous.”

  24. Ron Unz says:

    Not really. I’d previously discussed the Google situation in a piece I’d linked above:

    https://www.unz.com/announcement/what-google-and-facebook-are-hiding/

    Google seems to have secretly “deranked” all our tens of thousands of articles and posts, meaning that they’re still in the Google results but artificially placed near the very bottom. Therefore, if you include “unz” in the search string, they still come up, but otherwise almost never. So if you don’t already know you’re looking for our articles, you’ll never encounter them.

    Frankly, I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of Google doing something like this before, as opposed to just changing the relative weight of different links, i.e. down-weighting those from “doubtful” sources.

    That’s why my Hispanic Crime article is such a useful test. Given its decade-long #2 ranking, it must have been up-weighted by enormous numbers of very high-quality links from all across the Internet. But someone at Google just manually over-rode all the standard algorithms, and zeroed out the ranking. It’s a little like changing an election result by just altering the final vote-count.

  25. @Anatoly Karlin

    Google failing to find that for you would then be a failure in a functional sense.

    I agree with the “half hearted” comment. The search engine censors seem to be playing a double game. When after pressure, they will apparently meekly comply. But it often seems a deliberate reductio ad absurdam. Donald Trump appears to be in an information alliance with Zuckerberg. The removal of the Nazi triangle in Trump’s political advertising which is the Antifa symbol is completely ridiculous to even a child. Ron now seems to think, we should all hang together. As one of Ron’s amusing lunatics, all the search engines give me fantastic free publicity. A Google agent even went so far as to photograph a hard copy of my writing and post it in a google book. Perhaps I amuse them too.

    Sorry, Saggy. I must protest. The new and proper term for that superduper, most important chapter of WWII is not Holohoax, but ‘Holyhoax’. Why? Because the memory and significance of suffering Jews and its unassailable narrative have become sacred. Do not touch! Don’t you dare!

    Disbelieving is a sin–(and a criminal offense in many jurisdictions.)

    Watch Holyhoax shrines, documentaries, remembrances, and museums rise and multiply. Marvel as they stay free from attack or criticism (even from BLM and Antifa) because these monuments are holy.

    Would it be possible to quantify the effect of the soft ban by looking at the historical behavior of top keywords by traffic? Right now four of the top five are very specific queries: “unz rev”, “unz”, “steve sailer”, “ron unz” which we would not expect to be affected (much, anyway) by the soft ban.

    The interesting exception is the first: “american inventors” which drives 9% of search traffic but AFAICT an unz.com link does not appear in the first several pages Google returns for that search.

    Is it possible to get all “top keywords by traffic” data from before and after the soft ban to see what the effect was?

    For social media one can try using the app Minds for privacy.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minds

    Minds has become popular for its commitment to privacy, decentralization, optional anonymity, radical transparency, free speech, and user rewards in contrast to the surveillance, secrecy, censorship, and algorithm manipulation occurring on many proprietary social networks.

ProtonMail uses client-side encryption to protect email content and user data before they are sent to ProtonMail servers, unlike other common email providers such as Gmail and Outlook.com. The service can be accessed through a webmail client, the Tor network, or dedicated iOS and Android apps.

    ProtonMail is run by Proton Technologies AG, a company based in the Canton of Geneva,and its servers are located at two locations in Switzerland, outside of US and EU jurisdiction.The company also operates ProtonVPN, a VPN service.

    To be a Jew is now to be a liar and a defender of lies.
    Good luck with that.
    I for one will enjoy watching as their lies are eviscerated.

  71. I would like to make a comment about the punishment of kapos in Auschwitz.

    If you were a Pole or a Ukranian and you were forced to be a kapo or guard in Auschwitz, Israel wants you to be tried as for crimes against humanity and genocide.

    If you are a Jew and volunteered to be a kapo or guard in Auschwitz and you murdered Jews in Auschwitz and ripped children from their mother, the punishment in Israel is that you cannot attend a synagogue or be an officer of a Jewish organization.

    [MORE]

    Reszo Kastner had the Kastner Express where for $25,000 in gold, you could save your life from the gas chambers of Auschwitz- as the Chief Rabbi of the Satmars did. Kastner became a politician in Israel and was assassinated.

    My friend’s father fled Germany as a teenager. His father served on a submarine tender in the Bering Sea.

    When his mother died, the Head of the Judenrat of his city spoke at her burial. This man had sent Jews to their deaths- collected Jews for Auschwitz and he was respected by all. Except my friend’s father, who threw him out of the car.

    Regardless, I had a friend Jacob, who had been born in Israel. He told me that in Israel Jews, who cooperated with the Germans were frequently murdered. But in the United States these kapos could live free. He was always perplexed about the fact that the United States did not try these Jews as criminals.

    Thank you.

    This recent crackdown on independent news may well be timed to remove dissident voices the trusting sheep might hear during this obvious condoned destruction of our American heritage.
    Just like You Tube made it very hard to expose young ppl to counter MSM narratives by removing comments from any videos that target the under 21, the Wizard behind the curtain only want Joe six pack and Molly “fluid sex” to hear facts from Deep State approved sources which will never tell the true reasons why things are happening and violence is taking place and where Nationalism mixed with the word “White” is a jail-able offence (If not a hangable one).
    The facts on the ground are that there are now enough bereaved non-whites mixed with the media’s anti white male messaging, that in appearances to those addicted to lies, have the power, morality and message to pay back white men who mostly were innocent bystanders to all the colonialism and slavery that has occurred before.
    For many years big brother put us whites in charge of holding down the Negro with punishment rendered to those who didn’t play along and many of our kind bought totally the message that went along with it, us being good patriotic citizens and all.
    Now Big Bro is subverting us again, blaming most those who live paycheck to paycheck for the evil past full of slavery and colonialism
    The Jew outlaws his name from discussion and that is relevant, since it was their invention of big business that depends on big loans that got their kind to lick their chops in all kinds of ways over the selling and profiting of human flesh.
    Now, through controlling the message, they have convinced the former slaves that it was every-man whitey that caused all this chaos. If any one points out the Jewish role in all of this, he is charged with hate speech while Netflix and Prime fill their broadcasts about evil Germans that want to take down America and, I suppose, bans pointing out the obvious, their hate speech is free speech and ours ain’t.
    Only whites can be racist, that is soon to be an established fact because when you control the message you actually conjure reality and exactly the reason that free speech was in the bill of rights ( so one self interested group could not censor other voices out_)
    Now we live in times where the constitution is used for glossy rhetoric with no follow through, and soon the white man will be at the bottom, a place he has earned for previous bad behavior (believed by all that believe we have a free press)

    Get out your fiddle and play while watching the sun go down never to return on the America we were told we had (but never did)

    Bitchute videos do show up but lately do not load via Chunghua Taiwan on Android. Don’t know why or who or what is pinching their stream.
    Someone I know is helping to build huge new offices in Taipei for Goggle and Fakebook who – believe it or not- are working with the left leaning lbgtq promoting government!
    On another note, Duck Duck servers are in Israel. So you know. There are other good search engines that don’t retain IPs, like Ecosia, Searx, Swiss Cows, and especially Metager is great, though spiked with some adds.

    “Duck Duck servers are in Israel”

    Can you confirm this? If true, that changes everything. Time to find a new search engine.

    You are correct, Quasi the Man, but the real deal will be released this fall and will have the masses screaming for a vaccine by March 2021. Administration of the ‘Gates’ RNA vaccine during 2021/2022 will fulfill the wet dream of Gates’ masters by reducing population even further and enslaving the remainder with a corrupted genome and biochip. With 5G being fully implemented under cover of COVID-19 (I’ve seen three towers spring up in my area in the last two months), the biochip will permit both tracking and punishment of the remaining slaves.

  83. @Ron Unz

    When we began broadcasting False Flag Weekly News https://kevinbarrett.heresycentral.is/category/ffwn/ a decade or so ago we were always high in the Google and YouTube rankings for the search term “false flag.” I used to joke that we should trademark the term and charge everyone a nickel to use it. Then somewhere around 2016 we got shadowbanned and lost about half of our traffic.

    Obviously search engines, social media, and YouTube should be politically neutral, First Amendment compliant public utilities.

  84. Just confirmed that searching for “The Myth of Hispanic Crime” (w/o quotes) on Bing & ddg returns your article at the very top, with Bing providing an excerpt, while you are not on the first page at Google. unless you add “Unz” or put “The Myth of Hispanic Crime” in quotes (in which case you appear third).

    Google is evil, so since Damore was fired I’ve made ddg my default, unless I need a cached version.

    VDARE has suffered an attempted deplatforming from its url registrar. You should be prepared for that.

    Those dastardly Nips have culturally appropriated Sleipnir (Odin’s horse) and Fenrir (the Great Wolf – son of Loki, destined to kill Odin and fell Yggdrasil during Ragnarok/Götterdämmerung).

    What the fuck is that about?

    Use your own mythology, you inscrutable little yellow cunts.

    (It just occurred to me that maybe some Scandos have just used Nip-land out of convenience – but fuck it… best make assurance double sure, and take a bond of fate and put the cheeky little Nip bastards on notice).

    Maybe the Scandis or Germans or Dutchies or the Anglos should get back the Japs and appropriate their culture. Say hello to the future Amaterasu browser based in Berlin and Hachiman browser based in Oslo.
    Amaterasu Ōmikami = the Sun goddess. Hachiman = Shinto God of War.

  88. When FB refused to allow me to share one of your posts, I not only left FB, I sold their stock which I had since the IPO in May of 2012. The blatant liberal bias in their “censorship” means they are suppressing speech the regulators find disagreeable. IK, it’s their business, they can run it anyway they like. I don’t have to use it.

    With the coming leftist political control of America I can’t believe they wouldn’t quickly shut down something like Unz.com. Even now federal judges can just make up laws, or declare something unconstitutional, to ban something. And that’s that, end of story.

    I think in the near future there will be a concerted effort to curtail alternative information sources (i.e., anything which challenges the official narrative). E. Michael Jones just had all of his books banned by Amazon (when you search for him on Amazon all of his books come up in the search window but only two books can be found on the site (both are used books and for one of them, Neo-Conned!, he’s just a contributor).

  94. @Taiwan

    Thanks, but that link doesn’t work. I have a sinking feeling you’re probably right though.
