Google blacklists Natural News… removes 140,000 pages from its index…

 
55785

Check out Mike Adam’s video from Natural News. It’s really him. Whether you like him or not, google has removed links that go to NaturalNews.  There are still likes up to Natural.News (notice the .news) but NOT NaturalNews.com. No links appear to go to his site anymore (just sites that talk about his site)

Again, no matter what your politics; you will want to check it out.

    I will find Natural News no matter what, as I will always find you and others, I will be relentless on finding a search engine that allows alternative news.

  • Wendy Allen

    Natural News is still on Facebook.

  • Wendy Allen

    Natural News is still on Facebook. I have not gotten it by mail for two months? but I have gone to it’s Facebook site. Yes..people believe Yahoo and TV media etc. They think Trump is lying when it is the fake news lying. Pray. God is real. God bless!

  • GrannyD

    Hello. I use google chrome. Should I change? I feel so sad that Google has done this to Mike. Are we living in a Dictatorial environment where there is no democracy? It is such a shame, So who should I use? Thank You

  • Staceyk

    Wake up people. Censorship is increasing. This is terrible that this kind of censorship is occurring. I am surprised that they can do this! Although I’m not surprised. We have to be so careful that we are not giving the control freaks an excuse to exclude us. I follow all of the “natural” and “alternative” sites and I personally have chosen to unsubscribe to the “health ranger” Mile Adams. I feel bad that he is being attacked as I still consider him one of our own, but his writing style is very inflammatory and doesn’t stick to facts at times. He throws in emotional pleas camoflaged with facts. We need to be careful that the alternative news group as a whole is very fact based and not emotional as for example Erin does and Dr Mercola does. Very professional and fact based coverage from them!! I’m not surprised that Mike Adams has attracted the wrath of the MSM. He has great heart but unfortunately needs to learn to be careful in the society we live in. I would still like to encourage him though. He has helped many causes still!

  • martin woyzeck

    Good! Mike Adams is a far reichwing libertaryan, who push’s his political
    propaganda agenda .
    He is part of the New World Order, globalists,etc.
    He’s fully funded by the libertaryan nazi kochbros.
    Love how the reichwing thinks they can just call something ‘alternative’ and think people are going to believe that it means it’s the truth/fact.
    There’s not much Adams says thats truth or fact, whether it be his extreme political slant, or his bogus, faux heath tips.
    He’s got an agenda, and it’s far reichwing ,nazi ideology

  • martin woyzeck

    Finally everyone’s waking up, and seeing the cause of all this brainwashing ,lying propaganda creating violence,hate,ignorance, is finally being exposed.
    Naturalnews adams, alexjones, ventura, ron paul,etc. are all being exposed for the lying reichwing nazi libertaryans that they are

  • martin woyzeck

    Adams natural news, like alexjones, wearen’tchange, ventura,fox,etc
    are the fake news

  • and the site is still up, but when you search on google, nothing will take you to his actual site anymore. those searches are gone.

  • So they should be censored on the web, even if one doesn’t agree with everything (or maybe anything) they say?

  • martin woyzeck

    What does ‘one of our own ‘mean?
    Adams like many libertaryan rightwingers realized a long time ago that to get progressives, new agers, healthconscious seekers on their side is to brainwash them by giving them elements of the truth/facts, what they want to hear, along with their rightwing agenda.
    If you’re in the group I mentioned above, then no, Adams is not one of our own.
    He is a far right libertaryan, funded by the kochbros.
    Just like alexjones, thrive movement,etc.
    You have to wonder why anyone good would support for president (two elections ago) a real life,card carrying white supremacist, Ron Paul.

  • martin woyzeck

    It has to do with intent. Is Adams really advocating his health concerns, or
    using it as a front to spout his far rightwing agenda.
    Just because a media source uses words like alternative or truth,or change in it’s title, doesn’t mean they are.
    I don’t always trust msm, but I’d put them over the hundreds of rightwing libertaryan sites fronting as progressive ,alternative, telling the truth(not) sites.
    That category would be adams, jones, thrive, collective evolution,etc.
    They’ve fooled,duped and brainwashed a lot of progressives.

  • martin woyzeck

    Good….I’ve been ‘outing’, exposing adams as a phony for
    years.

  • martin woyzeck

    Anyone who supports alexjones/infowars (there’s a war on your mind), ron paul
    or trump is a major part of the problem.
    They are the globalists, pointing fingers at others of being the globalists.
    People like jones, adams should be arrested for instigating hate, violence,etc.

  • Catherine Edmends

    doesn’t matter – it’s censorship pure and simple – what next? something else they disagree with? who’s deciding this crap?

  • Catherine Edmends

    so just because you think it’s phoney you support the censorship in this way – what about other things I think are phoney like the white house page, CIA , Trump, any of the MSM …………………they should ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL be taken off google – hell google itself needs removing ….”first they came for the gypsies……”

  • martin woyzeck

    It’s not about agreeing or not, it’s about telling lies, fabricating,
    using a subject i.e. health as a front for rightwing political purposes.

    There’s hypocrisy in what you say.
    I don’t know you, but I know about Adams.
    He’s constantly spouting about fake news, msm,etc and that they should be stopped.
    Of course his idea of fake news are actually the ones exposing the real fake sources .like his.

    He’s always on about msm.
    I personally take everything with a grain of salt, and do my own research, so can’t say I always buy into what msm says, but from my own homework, I’d take their word over many of these rightwing sites ,such as adams naturalnews, or alexjones, which is outright lies.
    Most of what msm does is sensationalist, still wrong, but not on the level of lies, etc.
    Isn’t that censorship?
    Trying to shut down msm, what he considers to be fake news sources???
    You seem to be talking about censorship when it fits
    your agenda i.e. liking natural news.

    And what do we do as a society, the world, when many are getting brainwashed with lies, fabrications, propaganda on the net,
    that creates bigotry, hate and violence?!
    How do you suggest dealing with that?

    I’ve been following these far reichwing goobers for a long time.
    Put aside Adams faux rants, false health claims,etc..
    He supports alexjones, ron paul.
    Do you know anything about these guys?
    There is no exaggeration, fabrication in saying those guys
    are white supremacists.
    That’s factual.

    Alexjones has created,instigated more hate and violence
    than anyone I know.
    It’s hysterical that jones slogan is ‘there’s a war on your mind’,
    when it’s sources like his, adams,thrive, paul who’s creating
    the war on peoples minds.
    What ironic hypocrisy.

    If you haven’t already, dig into jones, not just now,
    go back 8,10 yrs of his programs .
    And after you do, ask yourself why adams would be so supportive of him.

    Your question of censorship seems one sided.
    Are you saying the same for those you don’t agree with?
    Agreeing or disagreeing isn’t the issue , it is sources
    feeding/brainwashing dangerous ,evil intentions.

    It’s a good question, to censor those who are creating
    a global war or not?.
    Nazis got to people through radio propaganda.
    Now we have the internet ,which goes worldwide.

    We used to have the Fairness Doctrine,
    which part of it said that any news source cannot lie.
    The rightwing got rid of that, as soon as they did is
    when foxnews, rush limbaugh got on the air,
    as well as jones, adams, and hundreds of others that
    tell lies, huge fabrications, boogeyman conspiracy theory scare tactics, with very minor elements of truth.
    What grabs people are those small, small elements of truth, ignoring the majority of what’s said that is totally false, wrong.

    It was funny years ago, foxnews tried to get their program into Canada.
    Canada said no, pointing out that their country has laws against
    any news source lying.
    That’s the question ,should everything be all right to say.
    Should there be no censorship ,meaning a program/site claiming
    to be news, educational,etc. being able to make up what they want,
    yet say it’s fact/truth???

  • martin woyzeck

    Everyone’s using the phrase ‘wake up’, yet everyone seems to
    think it’s everyone else who should wake up.
    Another laughable phrase ‘do your homework/research’.
    It’s laughable as many think getting on fcbk,youtube for a couple hours
    is homework,and then taking info from sources that are lying,
    conspiracy theories, fabrications, pure political propaganda.
    It makes ‘do your homework’,and ‘wake up’ kind of meaningless.
    And how/where specifically is censorship increasing?.
    I’m not (yet?) disagreeing with you, I’m wondering what your
    idea of censorship is, and specifically showing it’s increase.
    You’re ok with educational, news sources lying,fabricating, but
    calling it truth and fact?
    I’m not for censorship, but the question of free speech has come up
    ever since nazi Germany, where brainwashing people to believe certain things.
    I don’t have the answer, as I don’t like the idea of censorship, but we now
    have to look at it differently, considering all the lying propaganda sites.

    Who is it you consider the ‘control freaks’,and who do you consider ‘us’, as in ‘an excuse to exclude us’???. Who is ‘us’? Who are the control freaks?

  • Kid Monkey

    Are you really comparing the rounding up and murdering of large groups of people to a private company’s decision to not promote someone who peddles in harmful alternative medicine?

  • Dave Burke

    Google is a private company. It is free to delist sites whenever it wants. This is not censorship, it’s a business decision.

  • Caroline Rose

    change teh name of your site ?

  • Darraugh Collins

    Google is a public company…

  • Mary Kretzmann

    I very much doubt they are funded by Koch bros.

  • Mary Kretzmann

    Bing works

  • Mary Kretzmann

    Google prides themselves on being a great search engine. Most of us were dismayed when they kowtowed to the Chinese govt. to make a search engine there that was censorship friendly. Now they have brought it here to our shores. They cataloged all of the libraries in the world in a effort to preserve freedom of thought and searches. They are no longer a great search engine, They censor! That is akin to or worse than book burning. They are simply a platform. So people will find other great search engines that allow freedom of thought

  • Mary Kretzmann

    Alex Jones has broke some important news stories over the years.

  • Mary Kretzmann

    Bing works

  • Mary Kretzmann

    No, you’re just afraid that they might be right . It’s funny that the left is afraid the Trump will somehow block free speech – but they are all for this form of complete censorship by Google.

  • Farhorn Jones

    Why does Google have a right to censor anything?

  • lilk

    You’re not being censored. You can still say all you want. You just aren’t being promoted through their search engine. Big difference.

  • Wendy Allen

    Thanks! Facebook has articles, but less than the daily amount.

  • Staceyk

    Good points Martin. “Wake up” means we all have to question the reality as we know it today. We can’t get comfortable and just accept things as they are to be necessarily true anymore. This includes all sources, even scientific journals. We have to take the supposedly factual information we find and make our best decision using our intuition and common sense as well. I would say the “control freaks” may be our abusive government overreach and or large aggressive corporations imposing their will upon people who don’t want to buy into their agenda. “Us” is the common person with no agenda other than their own bodies or their families. The large pharmaceutical companies, chemical companies, government agencies that are corrupt, those are the entities that threaten “us” because we want to think different or pushback. I follow alternative media because I at least get to read a different side of the story. I say follow but I don’t mean blindly follow. I don’t mean all alternative media can be trusted. It doesn’t mean all alternative media is extreme right wing either.

  • Wendy Allen

    I was missing Naturalnews for 2 months from my daily e mails and had to use Facebook. I never thought about it was a major problem, but just me until your article. I even have trouble getting the Mercola site to my e mails even though I am subsribed ever since I forwarded it to my sister. I have to type it in to get to it. Truth needs to get out. Thanks for having the courage to speak out. God bless!

  • Staceyk

    Google is a public company.

    Its ticker symbol is GOOG and it’s traded in the U.S. on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

  • Fabio Pontmercy

    Oh yeah! Thanks Google for banning these stupid pseudo-scientific articles! Let’s eradicate this problem from the whole world!

  • Wendy Allen

    You have it backwards. That is what TV wants you to believe. Trump is awesome and Alternative medicine is awesome…heals me fast. TV media tell the opposite to what is true and people believe it. Open your eyes…find out the real truth.

  • Staceyk

    Just another example of how the things we thought we could trust may be in fact the things we should suspect. I for one will not use Google anymore. They are associated with too much controversy. New anyway we can change things is one at a time. And thank you Erin for bringing this to our attention. I found one link that sort of summed it up: “Google’s market dominance has led to prominent media coverage, including criticism of the company over issues such as aggressive tax avoidance,[335][351] search neutrality, copyright, censorship of search results and content, and privacy.[352][353] Other criticisms include alleged misuse and manipulation of search results, its use of others’ intellectual property, concerns that its compilation of data may violate people’s privacy, and the energy consumption of its servers, as well as concerns over traditional business issues such as monopoly, restraint of trade, anti-competitive practices, and patent infringement.
    Google’s stated mission “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”,[354] and the means employed to accomplish it, have raised concerns among the company’s critics. Much of the criticism pertains to issues that have not yet been addressed by cyber law.”

  • englishvinal

    double U.. double U… double U… ixquick … dot com
    is very private.. uses the google data bases but never ever discloses who YOU are … what you searched for etc..
    I’ve used it for many years.. I haven’t graced nasty butted google with my questions for a long time…
    My appetite is better and I’ve lost weight too~!!!! (Joke..)

  • englishvinal

    google spies on you and has for years… and reports every tid big to big brother… don’t ask, just delete chrome from your desk top and system.
    Mozilla is a good alternative.

  • englishvinal

    From my checking Bing out.. it spies and reports too.

  • englishvinal

    So.. hit ’em where it hurts.. their bloody bank accounts….
    VOTE with your feet.. sign OFF and don’t come back.

  • englishvinal

    TROLL much? ..
    How much per word are you getting PAID to post “balancing opinion”.. (as the govt. system calls it)…..
    TROLL… ignore forthwith.

    Censorship is a violation of the natural right of man….. that is the foundation of any free nation…
    ….. and any step toward GOVERNMENT imposed controls.. (and all these owners of google/facebook/etc. etc. are GOVERNMENT entities by choice….. that is how their billions of dollars are secured… wake up people) is the living breathing path to slavery of mind, body and energy.

    PizzaGate anybody?… Should that type of evil nastiness be “censored”.. outed, exposed and crushed????
    YES… however, let the society be the judge.. let the majority of the people naturally censor what is EVIL…
    …. they all have a vote, with their money or their continued support through their “silence/consent” … and it is a BIG impact vote too.

    Encourage the PEOPLE to step forward and boycott, or scream condemnations of EVIL corrupt politicians or entertainers, and of people who produce mis/dis information, gossip and/or unfounded inflammatory rumors…

    Put the control back into the hands of the REAL people and THEN you all can join in “making america great again”… Trump was running a campaign to win the seat of POWER in the white house, the REAL people believed him and they want to “make america great again”.. but he isn’t going to “DO IT FOR THEM’..
    They must do it for themselves, and the first step to freedom lies in the recognition that they do have the POWER to censor evil or meddlesome tale bearers.

  • englishvinal

    So, don’t use their search engine and cut them loose.
    No money in people who don’t set themselves up to be spied upon.

  • englishvinal

    TROLL….. martin woyzeck.. TROLL for the communistic control system… Mind control for the masses….
    Run those lemmings over the cliff.. they are too stupid to recognized paid to post trolls….
    Well, maybe not?…………..Hummm

  • englishvinal

    TROLL for the slave state….. how much are they paying you … by the word perhaps?

  • DeaconMac

    Google has the right because it is not a government. Government’s are not allowed to censor because of the First Amendment. Private individuals and companies are allowed to publish or not publish pretty much anything they wish. Read the Constitution. It is your friend.

  • Dave Burke

    It’s still independent of the government and therefore free to set its own rules. This is not censorship.

  • Dave Burke

    It’s still independent of the government. This is not censorship.

  • Dave Burke

    It’s not censorship.

  • Emma Gartlan

    How can we fight to get the site back up?

  • Samurai

    independent it is not. Google was initially financed with money from CIA and NSA. The CEO is currently consulting for DoD.

  • Samurai

    Dude, you live in a dream world. The Constitution ain’t worth the paper it was written on. The US Government censors every day and follows none of the Constitution or Bill of Rights. Example, 7 wars in 8 years of Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama. Except only Congress can declare war. But that does not stop the Imperial President. Last time Congress declared war was Dec 8, 1941.

  • Emma Gartlan

    @Erin Elizabeth your link to ‘My Story’ video wont work for me, it comes up but the actual video when clicked on says ‘The address wasn’t understood’. Not sure if this happens to everyone or just me.

  • wendygoerl

    “Right wing” and “Libertarian” are NOT interchangeable terms. And your post is an excellent example of “truth is in the eye of the beholder.”

    Remember, your “brainwashed progressives” include the CDC (that LITERALLY threw out data indicating vaccines cause autism), the anti-drug extremists that still insist there is “no” good use for marijuana despite dozens of conditions that have worked for thousands of people after conventional treatments failed, and virtually everything our Executive-Anus Emetrius promised about ObamaCare.

  • wendygoerl

    Censorship is not the exclusive privilege of the Government. And there are rules about who businesses are and aren’t allowed to deny services to.

  • wendygoerl

    Are you suggesting a company with as much power (if not more) as the USPS has the right to force people into harmful mainstream “medicine” when a few minutes on a natural site could not only save their lives, but give them a normal quality of life?

  • wendygoerl

    Tried Chrome in the beginning, didn’t really care for it. (Didn’t really hate Google, then, either, but my opinion has gone down ever since.) Stayed with FireFox. Problem is, everyone’s optimizing sites for Chrome, now.

  • wendygoerl

    Just wait until they decide your favorite site is “stupid pseudo-scientific articles.” Reality check: some of the most venerated names in the scientific community (like JAMA) are publishing articles that have been cherry-picked and spin-doctored to support the BigPharma ads that pay the piper.

  • wendygoerl

    If you read some of these posters, everyone is NOT waking up. They’re already too brainwashed to evaluate an article for its own merits and just look at whether the source is approved by their political party.

  • wendygoerl

    Not really. AS powerful as Google is, being delisted is as good as being deleted for millions of people who aren’t sophisticated enough to know who powers their search engines and use alternatives.

  • wendygoerl

    Do I believe him, or you? Calling a guy that’s hated by his own party for not being progressive enough to be a Republican and a confirmed Libertarian a globalist is somewhere between “ignorant” and “leftist brainwashed” in my book. So, based entirely on your comment, Alex Jones/ InfoWars goes up a few points in my book.

  • Kid Monkey

    I’m not debating the merits of real medicine vs “alternative” medicine. I just asked if Catherine Edmends wanted to seriously compare a private company making a decision to not promote something to rounding up and murdering millions of people.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Dennis Kucinich is warning the US about the dangerous precedents being
    set in promoting war with Russia, the intel going after Trump and I see
    this as a related issue. I wholeheartedly agree that dangerous
    precedents are being set. I see the suppression of Natural Health
    information as the obvious and bold move to keep information from the
    populace.
    I don’t agree with Mike’s politics. But the disappearance
    of all of his valuable health info is very dangerous. One of the
    criticisms about Mike was about his opinions of the Zika Virus. Mike’s
    articles matched my own findings.
    When I read bout Zika, I knew it
    was a manipulation from the Shadow Government or a result of an
    experiment gone wrong. At worst, it could be another in a multitude of
    government experiments inflicted upon unwitting and helpless people I
    confirmed my suspicions by finding the following facts and posting my
    findings on the internet. 1) Rockefeller had owned the virus
    since the 40s. 2) That Zika had been on the internet for years and
    very open for sale. 3) That Zika is not a dangerous virus and
    had been around for decades without any serious effects. 4) That just
    before the news about microcephaly in association with Zika was
    released, there had been a release in the area of Brazil where the
    microcephaly was first occurring, of Genetically Engineered mosquitoes.
    5) That the cause of the microcephaly was not confirmed scientifically,
    but only that there was a correlation. This confirmed my suspicions.
    This form of Zika did not spontaneously occur.
    This removing of
    all of Natural Health’s info from Google is a precedent setting
    suppression of information that is in keeping with a totalitarian
    government. Google being the largest search engine, has a responsibility
    to NOT censure this valuable information which often challenges the
    status quo on health. Natural Health challenges the status quo, and
    sometimes with hyperbole, but it provides valuable information to people
    who are drowning in medical bills or cannot afford medical bills. It
    allows provides valuable info for those attempting to improve their
    health. Other than politically, Mike is on the edge of tomorrow’s
    health care.
    We live in dangerous times and I believe that this is
    a political move…..FOR SHAME. Everyone who values the freedom of
    speech, the freedom of access to all information should be up in arms
    protesting this dangerous and totalitarian suppression of information. I
    see this as a very dangerous and foreboding example of the times we are
    in. Patricia P Tursi, Ph.D.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Yes, he is inflammatory and I don’t agree with his political views. But I find the censorship much more alarming. He needs us all to protest the censorship. There was a lot of valuable information that has been censored.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    I have followed Mike since before he began his political tirades. Health is a political issue as many M.D.s have written about. I am not in agreement with Mike’s political views but he should have a right to speak them. This is a VERY dangerous precedent.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    YES!

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Wrong. Google has an obligation because of it’s size and how many people depend upon it. I don’t use Google for this very reason. Same principle as businesses not being able to refuse service to certain people. Service should not depend upon political viewpoints or the challenging of the medical system.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Excellent point.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    This is not publishing…it is an access to information. This is suppression on a grand scale. So you agree with the MSM censoring…as they did when Bernie was running for office? MSM is fretting over their loss of viewers. Why? Because during the last election, many people found out how news is manipulated. This is manipulation. I have had people from other countries comment that they were very surprised at the US suppression of information. I have subscribed to Mike for years because I am a natural health person that doesn’t use Allopathic Medicine. This affects my health. Only totalitarian systems inhibit the free flow of information.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    I agree with you except that CDC is not progressive. It is a corporation that owns 50+ patents on vaccines,etc that it makes money off of by selling the very items it pretends to declare safe. But I guess you know this. The Trump admin is going after states who are allowing recreational marijuana, which many people are self medicating with. The medical marijuana route brings it into the commercial money making system. Don’t support medical marijuana. We will never get this herb naturalized again. I am NOT a user. I defend those who say it benefits them…and that should include recreational users.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    So if we begin censoring news, who is going to decide what is fake? I have been investigating the suppression of true health for years. Including all the people who have been killed and defeated…read Royal Rife’s story. Prime example.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Do you realize that Alex Jones is on the hit list along with Mike? Do you not think the left doesn’t use suppression, propaganda, etc? I see them working together. The right and left are both doing the same thing, but the left is slicker. At age 80, I belong to neither side and post things that I see as valid no matter where it comes from. Mike does not deserve to be shut down because he tries to persuade people to his side. People need to be taught critical thinking. But that has gone out the window. The issue is not the politics . The issue is whether we are going to allow suppression of info and deny 60+ % of info seekers info because we don’t agree with it.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Fire fox recommends Yahoo, it’s official search engine which is what I use.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Use Yahoo. Hope a lot of people move over to Yahoo as FireFox has done.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Yeah, Mercola is targeted. He has had to fight the FDA continually. He isn’t part of the commercial system, but he has training and is more scientific than Mike. I have recommended Mercola to so many people because he bases his articles on research. Like Green Med, etc.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    censor anyone who I don’t agree with attitude

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Firefox uses Yahoo.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Or that USPS has the right not to deliver what they don’t agree with!

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    But if Natural News is not in Google Base….and you know if Google did this to Natural News, it’s being done to others….it wouldn’t be there is another search eangine uses google base???

    If you watch Snowden, there is no way to hide from intel on the web…or otherwise. Great movie. So moving I cried. Snowden was on the genius level and had such morals. I know he wouldn’t agree with this censorship. This is very important

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    So who is going to decide what is worth having available? You aren’t addressing the issue of censorship…you are saying that you don’t agree with what he is saying. So only things that you agree with should be available to people? Or, hopefully, you were being sarcastic .

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    No…this basic issue has been in courts. When you are in business, you can’t decide whom you will serve and whom you won’t.

    Trump was elected by default. Many people voted for him because they couldn’t vote for HRC. But the real candidate, Bernie, was denied access to MSM while Trump had a free ride. But Bernie would have been the candidate anyway except for election fraud which Stanford U and Votetrust confirmed. The people didn’t really elect Trump…The Eletoral College did and the Dems were so corrupt, they helped elect him. Personally, I still hope he cleans things out and is not with Deep State.

    Post on FB and other sites. Get people to go to Firefox and/or use Yahoo. Boycott Google! Start a movement. I gave up google about 2 years ago.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Do you use Gmail? just dawned on me I may not be getting it either.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Are you a Hillary person?

  • Wendy Allen

    Yes…I thought it was a computer problem had to subscribe again and it worked, but then stopped again and then never again. Too bad…great articles on many topics written in a simple enjoyable way.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    I’m 80. Don’t use allopathic medicine and help others. Was a psychologist. Many of our psych problems are physically based. Especially the microbiome. Good for you Wendy although I can’t agree that Trump is awesome, I am supporting him on JFK, jr and think the vaccine investigation is awesome. Hoping he breaks the Shadow Gov hold.

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    I may exit from gmail. Have used it for years. would be a pain, but ….

    More censorship..Trump bars news org from press briefing. .

    he New York Times and CNN, , were prohibited from attending along with the Huffington Post . The New York Times and CNN, , were prohibited from attending. Did I take the wrong pill?

  • Wendy Allen

    Yes…Depression/anxiety/no sleep/obsessing/panic/suicidal thoughts maybe due to low oxygen in the brain due to Celiac/gluten. Gluten may hurt intestines so less nutrients absorb…then cells are not made right to work right to burn food/oxygen/ATP energy. 100% no gluten and no dairy/soy/sugar/GMO…taking vitamins/good oils/minerals…probiotic…LDN..detoxing may help rebuild cells to burn oxygen/work right in the brain/body. Stress may use up B vitamins and Zn/steal progesterone. Antidepression medicine may have fluorine which may block thyroid and cause worse depression/suicidal thoughts. Vaccines may hurt and antibiotics may hurt mitochondria/hurt the gut lining/lower the immune system/lower Mg and wipe out the good bacteria. Yes..a strong probiotic may help since it multiples B vitamins and much more. Roundup may wipe out the good bacteria. Eating organic pure foods/sunlight/Vit D3 5000IU/fish oil 2000mg/evening primrose oil 2000mg/lecithin 2000mg/Zn/Mg/Vit C/HCl and enzymes with meals/rhodiola/coenyzme Q10/Nature’s plus- Source of life multiple/Vit B12 methylcobalamin with intrinsic factor/folate may help the brain/body.

    Trump knows vaccines hurt and GMO hurts. He knew Fracking hurts before the election. Trump knows he is not perfect, but it is hard to see TV/Yahoo cut him down and say the opposite of truth and twist/lies/make up stories etc. I think many of the people crying/depressed maybe low in sunlight and be undiagnosed Celiac. Tests may not work to diagnose it. Fixing their health/diet and eating no food with a label may help people heal and then they can be productive and need less health care. People can learn how to take care of their health with natural help which works awesome. Vaccines …too many/too young/too many at one time and destroy a whole generation of kids is not ok. Fluoride/lead etc in water is not ok. Trump may help clean up the environment/food etc. One thing at a time. It is hard to restore all the first month. He wants to be a Hero and help rebuild/restore America. He loves all and cares about all. He is working his hardest which I hope people will respect and help him only. The Shadow government trying to hurt is sad. God is with Trump. God can do all things. New age …think they are god thinks they will win. God is stronger than the “dark side” and is real. God bless!

  • Patricia P. Tursi

    Yes to most of what you say. It isn’t only gluten but the lectins may be more important to avoid in the monocots. LDN is synthetic and I avoid …or try to…all synthetics. As to any fluoride..the fluoroquinolone antibiotics are causing aneurysms and other serious problems that people don’t know about. One thing that Trump did that was positive was appoint RFK Jr to head up the vaccine commission. Actually research is showing prebiotics may be more effective than probiotics. Many physicians were murdered when they were researching Nagalase found in the vaccines and the benefits of McGAF and they closed the plant down(in England) rather than have the improvement from autism..makes you wonder, no? There is a means to detox past the blood brain barrier, however. Coseva is a zeolite based detox spray that is nano sized and goes into the brain. Pulls out positively charged toxins. Nifty.

    Now it has been stated that it has nothing to do with content, only with a rules violation that can be fixed to get re-listed. Will you now retract this article or update it with the new information?

  • Wendy Allen

    Yes…they don’t want the cure for Autism. It makes them money for parents to try to help their child, but the answer to help Autism is not in Conventional medicine, but Alternative medicine. Prevention is easier than cure. Stop the excess vaccines…too many/too young/too many total. No vaccines may be best since even one may hurt too much.

    LDN is awesome…is not perfect..may dehydrate, but blocks the hidden gluten. I can’t be 3 days without. Antibiotics hurt people. MInocyline goes into the brain and causes strange cognitive errors/dreams from hell and temperature to be 93 due to hurting the mitochondria. Drugs may hurt. Natural help may help only.

  • GrannyD

    We must never run away. I will stick with Mike through thick or thin. USA is a democracy. It is not a Communist or socialist country. Running away shows weakness when we need to stand up for democracy. Whether Mike is right or wrong. Google should not do this. There are so many terrible things out there and Google ignored them, Thank You, God Bless you Mike,

    Google is not a PUC or a PSC.

  • acumenata

    No one has taken away his right to right to speak. How to distribute his content is a business issue.

  • acumenata

    No it doesn’t. Firefox is a browser. You can use whatever search tool you want.

  • acumenata

    Akin to book burning? Oh come on. Google has filtered and ranked your search results since its inception in the mid-1990s. Before it was called Google the backend technology was called PageRank. It was specifically invented to filter, rank and discriminate between search results based on their value and relationships. Outside investment in the late ’90s, and their later IPO, required them to turn that invention into a commercial for-profit enterprise. That meant fining ways to make money on search results that you, the end consumer, aren’t willing to pay for.

    You might imagine Google is there to provide an independent service to you, and envision yourself as their customer. You are not theri customer. You are their commodity product.

    No commercial search engine ever shows you unfiltered results. It has little to do censorship and thought control. It has everything to do with selling things to their commercial customers. You want more complete access to web content? Get one of the Deep Web search tools and learn how to do complex boolean searches. You want completely unfiltered results? Add in a Dark Web tool like .onion (TOR) and enter at your own risk.

    Apples, oranges and a completely different set of rules. The USPS is an agency of the US government operated and regulated public service agency. Google is a commercial enterprise. They can to choose to not distribute whatever they want.

    The same applies to all commercial enterprises. Alternative medicine sites can refuse to distribute mainstream medical advice. Vegan restaurants can refuse to serve meat. Car dealers can’t be forced to sell or promote bicycles as the healthier and more environmentally friendly alternative.

  • acumenata

    Exactly. It is content filtering by a private sector company.

  • acumenata

    Yahoo search results are more aggressively filtered than Google.It is a wh

    The Firefox browser plays no role. Your default search engine is a user-controlled setting. It is not something built into Firefox.

  • acumenata

    What you’re referring to was part of a strategic partnershipdeal between Yahoo and Firefox. It was designed to give Yahoo users on Firefox *more* filtered results, not less.

    Yahoo pays Mozilla Firefox $375 million a year for the privilege of being their ‘default’ search engine, which you the user can change. They are obligated for the same amount each year through 2019 under a five-year contract.

    Yahoo’s annual payment for that privilege was around $100 million more than Google previously paid Mozilla during their their similar deal. Mozilla ended its association with Google in November 2014 when it switched to Yahoo to generate revenue.

    Neither company made this deal to bring you less skewed search results. Mozilla did it to make money from Yahoo and Yahoo did it to make money off you. The 2016 SEC filings show that the deal is not paying off for either company. It was mostly aimed at getting more revenue from countiies like India and China. Yahoo’s new owner has been searching for an out. Under the present contract, Yahoo will owe Mozilla $1.5 billion over the next four years even if they are losing money on the deal.

    The site is still up. It was never down. It is just allegedly blacklisted from the Google search index.

  • acumenata

    Nobody is censoring them on the web. Filtering sites out of surface web search results is part of what all commercial search engines do. If the metrics show that more users are annoyed by certain sites than is offset by the revenue they produce, they will be pushed down to the bottom of the pile. If the annoyance factor is great or the site is using black hat SEO techniques to look more highly ranked than it is, it is blacklisted. They are less heavily promoted, not muzzled. The sites are still there. They can still say whatever they want. You can still visit them all you want.

    Learning how to find your way around the internet in a way that works for you is your responsibility. The same way that a TV guide is convenient for people who want to find something on television. Google and TV guides are convenient, easy-to-use tools. They are not public service companies.

  • acumenata

    Yes you can. It’s called target marketing. It happens every day. It is vastly different from refusing to serve someone based on race, sex or religion.

    You are a consumer of free search results. You are not a paying customer or someone owed a particular level service. If you don’t like their menu, you are free to go to a different restaurant. There are many.

    More ironic, those cheering on Trump have failed to grasp that his appointed cabinet and administration is deeply opposed to net neutrality. Ajit Pai, his choice to head the FCC, has an aggressive agenda to roll back consumer protection regulations designed to ensure equal access to content on the internet. He has a track record of doing just that. He is arguably your biggest threat.

  • Staceyk

    Martin. Does it excite you that you get responses? Even if they are negative? Most of us read great sites like this to further our positive involvement with each other. You read it to stir things up This is really all about your hatred for Ron Paul. Political agenda vs really caring about our freedoms or the human race!

    That means it is a publically *traded* company. Members of the public can buy and sell stock in the company on the stock exchange.

    Publicly traded companies are in no way related to the government, government entities, or government regulated public services. Google is an autonomous for-profit corporation, free to make business decisions about what to publish or not publish. It can do business and enforce its terms of service as it wishes.

    Google was not initially financed by the CIA or NSA.

    It was a project created by two Stanford PhD students. When they incorporated their invention as a private business, they were initially financed by the co-founder of Sun Microsystems (a private individual). They then received additional seed funding from the founder of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, computer science professor David Cheriton, and entrepreneur Ram Shriram (all private angel investors). The company’s pre-IPO round of major funding was from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Sequoia Capital (venture capital firms). The underwriters for the IPO were Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse (investment banks).

    Their entire investor history is disclosed in the IPO documents and SEC records.

    I really don’t get why Google would do that?
