Historian and cultural critic E. Michael Jones just had all his books suddenly erased from Amazon (along with hundreds of reviews—the intellectual property of the reviewers, now annihilated and erased from history by the Amazon censors). His account offers yet more evidence that the internet monopolies need to be seized and run as First Amendment compliant public utilities—and their executives imprisoned for treason against the Constitution and violating antitrust law. Jones explains:

“We were up to between 40 and 50 ebooks. And then one of the usual suspects noticed that one of my books was called Jewish Privilege. And not only did they notice that, it turns out that on Amazon’s terms it was a bestseller. And when this happens, someone’s going to complain. And someone did. And I was forced to take down Jewish Privilege. At that point, I had done a review of a series on Amazon Prime. This series is called Hunters. It is the most flagrant incitement to racial hatred, hatred of anyone that these people deem a Nazi…and also violence! We have Al Pacino playing the Jewish Nazi hunter, and he tells his young protegé to kill these people! And when the protegé says ‘isn’t that wrong?’ Pacino says ‘It’s not murder, it’s mitzvah!’ This is an incitement to violence. So I said this in the review I wrote. And they not only banned the review, they banned all of my Kindle books—for complaining that they were spreading hatred and violence. Which they were.”

    *from Jones’s “The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit’ –

    A German Jew by the name of Fritz Haber, a chemist
    and friend of Albert Einstein, responded to the Kaiser’s call by inventing poison
    gas to be used against allied troops. He also developed Zyklon B, the deadly gas
    that was used on Jews during World War 11.’1

  3. Nice interview. EMJ is always a great listen. Im still waiting for someone to do an entire podcast thats dedicated to calling out those that we were suppose to be “thanking for our freedom”,the past 2 decades, and asking when are you going to be carrying out your oath.? You know, the one that discussed the enemy within? I think only person ive heard on the net openly calling out the military to do their F##kin job is Inside the Eye. And that job doesnt include bombing innocent Syrian Civilians. Time to grow a pair boyz. . You wont be getting that at VT thats for sure. Today’s gem, “US Virus cases smash daily record” and the source “Asian Times” way to go Uncle Gordie. Your site is now officially a complete utter embarrassment .!!! Oh no. Now i bet ill get Angry Ian to reply and say what idiots people are for thinking that. Stay strong out there Kevin ! seriously , What ever happened to Preston James ?

    No, it’s not an outrage. Amazon is a publisher. A publisher can publish or decline to publish anything it wants. That’s exactly what “freedom of the press” means.

  5. Turner and Howes 4th Turning was a rip off of the ancient Hindu Yuga cycle. I have also been a victim of the censorship. Vault7 technology is being used on me, which has destroyed multiple communications devices, my car, appliances, psychpaths have remotely seized control of my home, turning lights off and on, controlling the thermostat, turning my microwave on while in another room, and using directed energy weapons technology on me immediately following my first cell phone being hacked in June of 2017. Psychopaths have moved into my neighborhood. Many have moved in in the past 6 years and I believe that they are Weather Undergound anti-fa deep state types. They repeatedly break into my home and vandalize and steal. The police, FBI, local, state, fedearl governments and many others refuse to do anything about it. The technology companies have also refused to correct the problems. They are sore losers. They have suffered a humiliating defeat and are expressing narcisstic rage. Vault 7 technology has been seized by corrupt government and corporate players, as well as other Anonymous hackers that live in my neighborhood and do not work. They spy, letting me know that they are spying on me by repeating or re-enacting things that I have said or done, that they could only know if they were illeglly spying on me, but when confronted, they deny it, because they know that it is illegal. Psychopaths renting behind me stole coolers and curtains that they have used in front of me, and psychopaths renting across the street have stolen lights from me that they have placed in their window.

    I believe that it is the Protestants that are the real threat in Christianity, since it is the Protestants that have the unique belief in determinism, that everything is exactly as the Church of England, run by English nobility has intended it. This whacky ideology is flat out rejected by all world religions, other than Protestantism, rewritten to fancy the whims of King Henry the 8th.

    What type of self-entitled narcisssist would believe that everything is exactly as God intended it while he is complaining on the radio that he has been silenced, while the West bank is being forcefully seized from its rightful owners?

    I happen to agree with the other statements made by him, but the belief in determinism, or predestination, by those living a pampered life is enough to send me into a state of fury.

    How is it that anyone could be so full of hubris and insensitivity, justifying the extreme suffering of others as a willful and deliberate predtermined act of God?

    Perhaps he has never read John 5:19 ” This we know, that we are children of God, and the evil one controls the whole earth.”

    It is Protestantism and the belief in predestination that is the largest reason for atheism.

    Agreed. If Amazon enables most book sales + a majority of sales in any other category, it takes on the aspect of a utility. A highway network, electricity grid, internet or legal system don’t directly produce consumer products but they are very necessary to production, sale and distribution = that they are utilities that need to work with government along certian guidelines.

    The first amendment guidline for literature is that it is freely available and uncensored, so either Amazon withdraws its censorship, or gets fined and broken up. Quite straightforward.

    Just so. In fact there’s even a very apropos term for this type of behavior – the expectation that a totally-pozzed Clownworld Court system and its blackrobed jesters to deliver actual justice. It’s referred to as ghost-dancing. Even (maybe especially) if they took their case all the way to the Supreme Council of Ayatollahs in the center of the swamp itself – they would be ruled against regardless of what is clearly written in statutes or has been decided in precedent numerous times thanks to a newly-discovered penumbra or emanation (especially the latter) from ‘Muh Constitution’.

    ‘No, it’s not an outrage. Amazon is a publisher. A publisher can publish or decline to publish anything it wants. That’s exactly what “freedom of the press” means….’

    This genre of argument fails when an institution reaches a certain size and level of monopoly power.

    If your e-books aren’t published by Amazon, you’re not published.

    The analogy here is railroads — which developed an unprecedented degree of control over the economy in the late nineteenth century. They offered the only practical way farmers had to move goods to the markets — and charged accordingly.

    So even though it was high noon for laissez-faire capitalism, they shortly found themselves being regulated by the government.

    In the internet age, we are confronted with this issue again in the form of such corporations as Amazon and Facebook. They just have too much power to be allowed to roam free. Substituting ideological shibboleths for recognition of this fact isn’t a solution.

    It is a barbaric Age of Faith, the most barbaric in history.

    It started on 12.23. 1913. Two World Wars, Third one now since 9.11.2001. That date Elul (12) 23 5761 in the Jewish Calendar. Ironic that the second century of the Zion Age of Faith started on 12. 23. Why? 1st one with a western calendar number and the 2nd one with a Jewish calendar number,

  15. E. Michael Jones self-describes in the heading of his own UR archive as “True Catholic Warrior”. A religious warrior is by definition a fanatic and I usually rename him E. Michael Fanatic. I assume the principal target of his attacks is Protestants and there need to be counter-attacks. If his secondary target is Jews, so what?

    But I stand beside him on this book burning business. The Jewish Onslaught simply must be beaten, and eventually will be.

    I don’t think gas chambers are the right answer. But Jewish emancipation was an implicit contract. That if the Jews became normal citizens they would be true citizens. Instead they became a fifth column intent on subverting and eventually ruling Gentile society.

    And their rule would be Nazi rule, as events in Palestine against the true indigenous people of that land make clear. And as at least two of Ron’s American Pravda articles make clear.

    So, they breached the deal. So, the deal, Jewish emancipation, is null and void. It’s high time we officially realized that.

    Yet, the two greatest Australians in all recorded history were Jews, Sir John Monash and Sir Isaac Isaacs. Those two definitely didn’t breach the deal. I’m stuck in a conundrum.

    Amazon and all the tech giants need to be regulated like utility companies. This isn’t an original argument but the utility companies must dispassionately offer service to everyone and cannot cancel service based on the political orientation of the user or if the user acts or speaks in a way they deem “hateful”. Nor do they have terms of service which they selectively enforce against their political opponents.

    But even if they are regulated the Jews will go back to the drawing board and yet find another way to pressure Amazon and other companies to deplatform goys whom they hate.

  18. @Anonymous

    ‘…But even if they are regulated the Jews will go back to the drawing board and yet find another way to pressure Amazon and other companies to deplatform goys whom they hate.’

    This is an issue we’re going to have to confront.

    Unlike many, I don’t think it’s a matter of Jews being worse than anyone else.

    On the contrary, it’s a matter of them being a little too good — at rigging the game so that they win. Not that others wouldn’t — it’s just that the Jews succeed.

    Now here, I genuinely have no idea what the answer would be. I am, however, fairly sure not even asking the question isn’t going to improve matters.

    Have you read Richard F. Burton’s The Jew, the Gypsy, and El Islam?

    The white gentile societies are susceptible because they have been raised from birth to believe the Jews are no different than anyone else. “They are the people of the Old Testament.” No one believes that about the Blacks, or the Amerindians, Gypsies, Muslims, or the Orientals. We all grew up KNOWING those people were different, and no sane person can really dispute the differences. “It’s a Small World After All” is just a goofy song, it’s really too bad that people can’t see that there is a sinister agenda behind such “humanitarianism.” It’s not that we hate these racial minorities (not yet pluralities!) in Western lands. Everyone knows they are different, REALLY different. Yet the Jews has waltzed into every sort of position without announcing himself, with a good command of English, plenty of money, often (especially in the past) with a great deal of talent. And 90% of people have never had the foggiest inkling what they’re all about. And won’t let themselves hear it.

    IF people REALLY KNEW THE TRUTH WITHOUT DOUBTS AND FEARS, BUT WITH CONVICTION. Well the Jews know what happens when that happens.

  21. ‘The white gentile societies are susceptible because they have been raised from birth to believe the Jews are no different than anyone else…’

    Meh. You’re at least tending towards the ‘Jews are a monolithic bloc with malign intentions’ outlook I can’t buy into.

    I’ve just known too many Jews of too widely differing behavior and views to accept that.

    They’re not some sinister cabal. Like most other distinguishable ethno-religious groups, they have discernible tendencies — and like all of us, they tend to see the virtue in ideas whose implementation would suit their desires. When I was a high school math teacher, I acquired a pronounced tendency to think that the only appropriate behavior for adolescents was to be sitting down, doing page 167, 1-35 odd, in silence. Really: if I saw a group of adolescents on the street, having a good time in their adolescent way, that was my response.

    Nothing unusual or even reprehensible in any of that. We all have our quirks, and we all tend to think what would suit us must be what is right.

    The difficulty is that Jews are just a little too good at getting their way. No doubt if Armenians were similarly gifted, it would be a hard life for the Turks.

    However, they’re not, so there’s not a problem. But Jews are, so there is.

    However, this doesn’t mean Jews are actually bad. It just means that there’s a problem.

  22. The bad education in the West was caused by the cucked Western male (who is not homo/black/Asian/Jewish). The cucked Western male believes in an inclusive, universal church (Roman Catholic Church) or universal brotherhood (socialism/Marxism/Freemasonry). These two evil beliefs are destroying the West. My default position is Deistic, biological materialism, but since Christianity was crucial in forming the West, I have no problems with Christianity as long as the churches are racial/ethnic. The RCC is not racial/ethnic, hence it is causing problems. Orthodox Christianity with its racial/ethnic churches will the Church of the West. Biology is first, beliefs are second. The West’s biology is Caucasoid.

    First, the censorship problem. We are having problems right now because the cucked GOP Congress critters refuse to deal with Silicon Valley. The good news is that alt-tech is growing rapidly so the tide will turn over the next couple of years. Mitumba EMJ stated that he now selling more books on his own than he did on Amazon. He is whining because he needs to blame the (((squirrels))) for any and all problems.

    KB and Mitumba EMJ covered many areas so I will try to write as much as possible to counter their stupidities.

    I’ll deal with KB first. KB, you converted to Islam after you face-planted in Muslima poontang. Your wife is from Morocco, a low IQ (84), Muslim shithole. You babbled about Claire Khaw. She is ethnically Chinese, so she belongs to the second-tier Mongoloid race. Anything she babbles is worthless as she is not a Western female. She needs to be sent to China.

    Islam is a satanic, sex cult that only destroys. About 95% of today’s Muslims are black/Asian. These are low IQ, non-Western races so Islam couldn’t degenerate them much further. However, Islam destroyed the Caucasians of North Africa by introducing black slavery, polygamy and concubinage. This is what happened to Morocco. Here are two Jay Dyer youtubes dealing with Islam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQO8Ul4r3KQ
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0Uv3AZYQGk KB, you and your family will be sent to Morocco.

    Now to Mitumba EMJ. Good biology leads to good outcomes, bad biology leads to bad outcomes. Caucasoids have good biologies. Mongoloids/Negroids have bad biologies. The (((squirrels))) can be of any race, but since the West is not Jewish, regardless of their race, (((squirrels))) are not Western and do not belong in theWest. They will be sent to Israel.

    You babbled about how the (((squirrels))) subvert the moral order. No. The goyim are quite capable and willing to subvert the moral order without any assistance from the (((squirrels))). You babbled about the Marquis de Sade. He was a French Catholic. Wilhelm Reich was not the first to push sexual degeneracy. Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, a German Lutheran (nothing (((squirrelly))) about him) was the pioneer of the queer movement. https://www.makingqueerhistory.com/articles/2018/3/13/karl-hinreich-ulrichs
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Heinrich_Ulrichs He inspired (((Magnus Hirschfeld))) and Wilhelm Reich.

    You’ve previously babbled that the movie “The Pawnbroker” was the movie that broke the movie decency codes in America. No. The Italian Catholics Vittorio Di Sica and Roberto Rossellini started this: https://books.google.com/books?id=ZEGMAgAAQBAJ&pg=PA43&lpg=PA43&dq=vittorio+de+sica+movie+the+bicycle+and+the+us+courts+on+indecency&source=bl&ots=tsk95jD7MU&sig=ACfU3U2ji_8keUWR4uJtt-kJJ6L4ge-WCA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiYwuG75LTqAhXFGM0KHb6XDYkQ6AEwAnoECA8QAQ#v=onepage&q=vittorio%20de%20sica%20movie%20the%20bicycle%20and%20the%20us%20courts%20on%20indecency&f=false

    You babbled about how we need adults to discuss and deal with our problems. I agree. You are not an adult. You refuse to deal with race and its relation to IQ which also relates to morality. The God question is a serious question. You babbled that Wilhelm Reich said not to argue about God with a seminarian because it would result in a loss for the questioner. My level of consciousness, Logos, is much higher than that of any RCC clergyman. Genesis 1:27 needs to be seriously discussed because of low IQ Mongoloids/Negroids.

    As a Deistic, biological materialist, I am able to argue against polygamy, gay marriage and the LGBTQ agenda, most abortion and even some types of birth control. These beliefs mean that repatriation and separation are needed in the West.

    “They’re not some sinister cabal.”

    You could say that about nearly any ethno-religious group, that you know different types with different attitudes, etc.

    This isn’t a matter of “being a little to good to rig things to their advantage.” In fact if they do rig things for their advantage, it is working together.

    Jews are intensely organized.

    Richard F. Burton knew the score. That’s why his manuscript and notes for his book on Jews (the last time I checked) remain in the custody of a Jewish organization. Not public. The expurgated published version is enough, actually, to “get it.” For those who are open to the information.

    But actually, Armenians are also pretty clannish and pushy, just ask non-Armenian people living in Glendale, CA. They are just less effective than Jews.

    That’s true enough. Stephen Sniegoski in his book about the neo-cons and Middle East wars makes that point. In fact he calls his book “The Transparent Cabal”. They’re quite open about the fact that the US administration/politicians be forced to devote massive national resources (financial and human) to Israel. It’s the open priority.

    Sniegoski quotes Douglas Feith (“Winning in Iraq”) May 10th 2004:

    I’m pleased to be here at the American Enterprise Institute. I have some long-time friends here, as you know if you’ve studied the published wiring diagrams that purport to illuminate the anatomy of the neo-con cabal.”

    No, the problem is that Jews can be “too good” at being bad (with others).

    IMO there is no people in the world that love trickery and deception more than they do. It seems to be hard wired. So, if the objective is out in the open (their advancement at others expense) then it’s action time:

    JERUSALEM —

    Why does an Israeli driver speed up when another car signals its intent to enter his traffic lane? Because he doesn’t want to be a freier–a sucker.

    What do Israelis say when dodging military reserve duty? “What do I look like, a freier?”

    And how does the Club Riviera advertise its five-star apartments? “Only Freiers Pay More!”

    If Israelis could agree on anything–a highly unlikely prospect, but if they could–it just might be that the cardinal sin is to be a freier.

    “It’s a national characteristic,” said author Zeev Chafets, who included a chapter on the subject in his book about Israelis, “Heroes and Hustlers, Hard Hats and Holy Men.” The topic “is something we talk about all the time.”

    https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1997-jul-25-mn-16208-story.html

    No doubt the planning of 9/11 was a delight, and even more so with the mass of incriminating evidence blocked from public view by their own (!!) media and bought and blackmailed politicians. Definitely not freiers if they can carry off a world class deception like this.

  30. gregor says:

    Around 25 minutes, Jones discusses black family structure and says the problem “isn’t racial.” This is an interesting point on which Jones and his traditional Catholic perspective differs from the more racialist/HBD right. I guess I am more in the latter camp but I think there are some merits to Jones’s view. White family structure does not come naturally to blacks and we need only look to Africa to confirm this. Only with strict social controls (“white supremacy”) can anything like this be forced upon them. That said, where I would agree with Jones is that traditional white family structure isn’t exactly “natural” to whites either and we see it is dissolving rapidly as moral standards are discarded.

    I think E. Michael Jones would agree with me that traditional family structures do “come naturally” to most humans, with only minor variations. It is natural for men to take little or no interest in supporting other men’s offspring, but to devote themselves to supporting and protecting their own offspring with terrific energy (fueled by their massive testosterone edge over women).

    Given that men will behave selfishly unless they are guaranteed paternity rights, it is also natural for women to guarantee men those rights via marriage, a sacred institution whose main purpose is to guarantee paternity and male protection to children.

    It is the current situation that is grossly unnatural. It was created by excessive wealth, contraception, and perverse messianic-millenarian ideology. The messianic millenarians have torn down the natural world, but only temporarily. It will soon reassert itself with a vengeance.

    I suppose the term “natural” can be used in different senses. Typically “natural” is seen as good and “unnatural” is bad. But in the New Testament, Paul speaks of “the natural man” in a negative sense, i.e., someone who is inclined to baser instincts. In this framework it’s not natural vs unnatural but rather natural vs spiritual or perhaps natural vs civilized.

    It’s an interesting question whether marriage, monogamy, and high-investment parenting are natural in a biological sense. Libertines usually argue that it is not. But in the r/K selection model, the K-strategy is a biologically sensible strategy, though I think in humans it does require rather elaborate social controls to maintain.
