PayPal shuts down Dr. James Tracy’s Memory Hole Blog account

While we were sleeping, the USA has morphed into the former USSR. America as we knew it is now dead.

I expect the next “screw” will come from WordPress. I humbly recommend to Dr. Tracy to move Memory Hole Blog to another server before WP shuts down your blog.

Memory Hole

On January 22, 2015 Memory Hole Blog received an email from “PayPal Brand Risk Management,” stating  that it is closing MHB’s account used to receive donations. Memory Hole has had a relationshippaypal2 with PayPal for two years. Suddenly, however, the company has chosen to unilaterally discontinue MHB’s account services.

Here is the key passage from the email announcing discontinuation of the account:

Due to the nature of your activities, we have chosen to discontinue service to you in accordance with PayPal’s User Agreement. As a result, we have placed a permanent limitation on your account.

We ask that you please remove all references to PayPal from your website. This includes removing PayPal as a payment option, as well as the PayPal logo and/or shopping cart.

Amazon.com bans ‘Nobody Died at Sandy Hook’ but not 19 other Sandy Hook books

In late October, 2015, Amazon.com listed for sale a newly published book, Nobody Died at Sandy Hook, which was co-edited by Professor James Fetzer. Contributors to the book include Professor James Tracy, Dr. Eowyn and other professionals.

Nobody Died at Sandy Hook

Almost immediately, a small battalion of “reviewers” who haven’t read the book attacked the book on Amazon, giving it a one-star rating. But they were outnumbered by the 5-star ratings given by readers who had purchased and actually read Nobody Died at Sandy Hook.

Less than a month after Amazon.com offered Nobody Died at Sandy Hook for sale, the book had received more than 80 reviews and an average rating of 4+stars, having received plenty more 5-star than 1-star ratings.

On November 20, 2015, however, Fetzer discovered that Amazon.com had taken down, i.e., suppressed, Nobody Died at Sandy Hook, even though Amazon was making good sales on the book — 500 copies in less than a month. (For more details, see my post “The hounding of Sandy Hook skeptics: Halbig threatened; Amazon.com removes Nobody Died at Sandy Hook“.)

According to Fetzer in an interview, Amazon.com went so far as to delete the book from a customer’s Kindle.

But there is no dearth of books about Sandy Hook being sold on Amazon.com. It’s just that all the books repeat the government-media’s false narrative. Here are the books I found, arranged by the year in which the book was published:

  1. Kaitlin Roig-DeBellis (and Robin Gaby Fisher), Choosing Hope: Moving Forward from Life’s Darkest Hour, G. P. Putnam, 2015. (Kaitlin Roig was a teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School when the alleged massacre occurred.)
  2. Deanna Spingola, Screening Sandy Hook: Causes and Consequences, Trafford Publishing, 2015.
  3. The New York Times, Tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, The New York Times Company, 2014.
  4. Matthew Lysiak, Newtown: An American Tragedy, Gallery Books, 2014.
  5. Andrew Solomon, The Reckoning: Searching for Meaning with the Father of the Sandy Hook Killer, Scribner, 2014.
  6. Connecticut Office of the Child Advocate, Shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School: The Adam Lanza Report, OccupyBawlStreet.com Press, 2014.
  7. Rebecca Hinkley, et al., Where Have All the Children Gone, Rebecca Hinkley, 2014.
  8. Dr. Leland D. Benton, Was Sandy Hook a Hoax? Sandy Hook Hoax Allegations are Disturbing! (Forensic Investigation) (Volume 1), published by Amazon’s CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2013.
  9. Dr. Leland Benton, Was Sandy Hook a Hoax?: Hoaxes and Scams, ePubWealth, 2013.
  10.  Scarlett Lewis (and Natasha Stoynoff), Nurturing Healing Love: A Mother’s Journey of Hope and Forgiveness, Hay House, 2013. Scarlett is the mother of alleged Sandy Hook child victim Jesse Lewis.
  11. Victor Thorn, Sandy Hook: A Critical Analysis of the Media’s Pathetic Practices and and How They Spawned a Wave of Alternate Conspiracy Theories, Poisoned Pen Publishing, 2013. While Thorn’s book, which has not even one review on Amazon, questions what he calls the media’s “confused reporting” on Sandy Hook, he does not offer an alternative explanation for Sandy Hook. How could he, since his book was published in January 2013, mere weeks after the alleged massacre. That, and the book’s short length (32 pages), render it nonthreatening.
  12. Doug Giles, Sandy Hook Massacre, White Feather Press, 2013. (Now I finally understand why the pro-Second Amendment Giles had never published anything that even questions the official Sandy Hook narrative, although he is critical of everything about the Obama administration and the Left. I am disappointed in him, and will no longer reblog or cite Clash Daily.)
  13. Charles K. Bunch, PhD, Sandy Hook: Symbolism, Archetype and Meaning, Spiral Fractal Media, 2013.
  14. Suzanne Davenport, Letters from Sandy Hook to the World, Karuna Publications, 2013.
  15. Mark Bennett, The Promise: The Families of Sandy Hook and the Long Road to Gun Safety, Brookings Institution Press, 2013.
  16. John E. and Marlene Derossett, Every Parent’s Nightmare: Adam Lanza & Sandy Hook Elementary, CreateSpace, 2013.
  17. D. E. Alexander, School Shootings – Columbine – VA Tech – Sandy Hook – The Slaughter of the Innocent, Adoni Publishing, 2013.
  18. Conrad Powell, Sandy Hook Slaughter: The Newtown Shooting and Massacre in Connecticut – Adam Lanza. Thoughts and Lessons on a Tragedy and the Coming Paradigm Shift, First World Publishing, 2012.
  19. Julia Audrina Carrington, Jesus, Why Did You Let Those Kids At Sandy Hook School Die?, CreateSpace, Dec. 17, 2012. This 34-page book was published a mere THREE days after the alleged shooting – a record!

Welcome to Obama’s America, where censorship is alive and well, and where big corporations (like Amazon) work hand in glove with government. That’s called corporatism, aka fascism.

Nationwide Media Blackout on Amazon’s Ban of ‘Nobody Died at Sandy Hook’

Add to the nationwide media blackout the fact that Alex Jones’ InfoWars took down its post on Amazon.com’s suppression of Nobody Died at Sandy Hook. See:

Memory Hole

On November 21 a press release reproduced below announcing Amazon.com’s censorship of Nobody Died at Sandy Hook was sent to almost 23,000 news media outlets by Sherwood Ross Associates, a Miami Florida-based public relations firm.

Thus far almost without exception the press release has been ignored, bannedbooksrepresenting a wall-to-wall media blackout of the retail powerhouse’s incredible act of prior restraint-style suppression.

Further, journalists at those very media now have an opportunity to download the book for free and judge the validity of the research for themselves.

Bill Gates says only socialism can save world from climate change

Bill Gates (l) and NATO general secretary Jens "666" Stoltenberg (r)

Bill Gates (l) and NATO general secretary Jens “666” Stoltenberg (r)

Bill Gates, the richest man in the world with a net worth estimated to be a mind-boggling $79.1 billion, who made his fortune from a capitalist enterprise, Microsoft, in a capitalist country, the U.S.A., bemoans that capitalism cannot save the world from the fiction of man-made global warming, aka climate change.

Louis Doré reports for the UK Independent, Oct. 31, 2015, that in an interview with The Atlantic, Gates said that the private, i.e., capitalist, sector is too selfish and inefficient to produce effective energy alternatives to fossil fuels.

Announcing his plan to spend $2 billion of his own wealth on green energy, Gates called on fellow billionaires to help make the US fossil-free by 2050 with similar philanthropy. He said:

Without a substantial carbon tax, there’s no incentive for innovators or plant buyers to switch [to green energy].

Since World War II, US-government R&D has defined the state of the art in almost every area. The private sector is in general inept.

The climate problem has to be solved in the rich countries. China and the US and Europe have to solve CO2 emissions, and when they do, hopefully they’ll make it cheap enough for everyone else.

In other words, Bill Gates wants the already much too powerful and bloated U.S. government — the public sector — to solve the problem of “climate change” via taxes to develop “green energy”.

I propose that Bill and Melinda Gates set a good example by giving up their energy-wasting palatial homes, luxury cars, private planes, and boats — all fueled by polluting fossil fuels.

This is the same Bill Gates whose foundation is funding the development of:

  1. contraceptive microchip that can be remotely controlled to release hormones that can act as abortifacients — drugs that induce abortion — into a woman’s body for up to 16 years.
  2. A non-surgical “permanent contraception” that is a sterilization drug, to be promoted worldwide.

The same Bill Gates who made this Freudian slip in a speech at the 2010 TED conference. Addressing the subject of how to reduce “global warming” by lowering the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) from Earth’s atmosphere, Gates proposed that a major way is to reduce the world’s population. He said: “Now if we do a REALLY great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health service, we could lower that [world population] by perhaps 10 to 15 percent.

In other words, Gates’ promotion of vaccines to Third World countries is not philanthropy — the purpose of vaccines is to reduce human population.

Vladimir Putin’s Christian Faith – in his own words

Vladimir Putin openly acknowledges he is a an Orthodox Christian

Can we trust him?

Christian-PutinFirst of all, I am not campaigning for President Putin. I don’t pretend to understand him; it would be presumptuous to do so. But his Christian footprints are recognizable at this point.

So… can we trust Donald Trump’s claim to be a Christian? Or can we trust president Obama’s (lower case intentional) claims to be a Christian?

We are commanded to pray for all people in positions of leadership that the Lord would direct their thoughts and actions toward His purposes. All people. So I can’t discriminate here.

I will say this. When I pray for Obama, I have to fight my anger at his behavior. When I pray for Trump, I have to wonder if he is just another deceiver, like Obama. But when I pray for Mr. Putin, I have an internal sense that he has some part of his heart that is reserved for the Lord.

And I would bet Mr. Putin can recall a favorite scripture more quickly than Mr. Trump.

Here’s one thought. There is talk in the looney-sphere that Mr. Putin is throwing a wrench into the plans of the “New World Order.” Sounds good to me.

Still puzzling and praying…


Obama cedes U.S. sovereignty to international body via Strong Cities Network

In the name of better fighting “violent extremism in all of its forms and manifestations in their local contexts,” the Obama administration has joined a global effort called the Strong Cities Network, which was launched 20 days ago on Sept. 29, 2015 at the United Nations.

Note: Speaking of “violent extremism in all of its forms and manifestations in their local contexts,” recall my post of yesterday, “Obama’s DOJ considers ‘racist’ and ‘anti-government’ Americans to be domestic terrorists“. That means the Strong Cities Network, which will be governed by an international body (see below), can and will be directed against Americans deemed to be “racist” and “anti-government.”

The Strong Cities Network will have an International Steering Committee and an International Advisory Board. The latter is “run” by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD), which means the Strong Cities Network, of which the United States is a member, effectively is “run” by this Institute.

So what exactly is the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD)?

The ISD describes itself as a “charitable” (non-profit) “independent ‘think and do tank’ working with leaders in government, business, civil society and academia to develop cross-border responses to the major geo-strategic, social and security challenges of our time. Combining research and policy advisory work, with innovative delivery programmes, specialised task forces, cross-sector partnerships and networks, ISD works to counter global extremism, bridge inter-communal divides and enhance Europe’s capacity to act effectively in the global arena.”

The ISD was founded by The Club of Three, which describes itself as having been established in the mid-1990s at the initiative of Lord George Weidenfeld to bring together leading figures from business and politics, journalism and academic life, from the UK, France and Germany, to meet regularly to discuss key European issues beyond official circles.

Below are the members of the Institute of Strategic Dialogue’s Board of Trustees:

  1. Peter Baldwin, Professor of History, UCLA.
  2. Roland Berger, Honorary Professor for Business Administration and Management Consulting at the Brandenburg Technical University; Founder and Honorary Chairman of Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, Munich, the 5th largest strategy consultancy in the world.
  3. Matthias Döpfner, Chairman and C.E.O. of Axel Springer AG in Berlin; former Editor-in-Chief of 3 newspapers: Die WeltWochenpost, and Hamburger Morgenpost.
  4. Stuart Fiertz, Co-Founder, President and Director of Research at Cheyne Capital Management (UK) LLP, a London-based asset manager with $6 billion under management.
  5. Francis Finlay, director of “a number of international investment companies and institutions”; former co-founder and chairman of Clay Finlay, an international investment firm based in New York.
  6. Lord Guthrie, Field Marshal, non-executive director of Petropavlovsk PLC, Gulf Keystone Petroleum, Colt Defense LLC, and Advanced Interactive Systems Inc.; former Chief of the British Defence Staff; former director of N M Rothschild & Sons Limited.
  7. Pierre Keller, former member of the Swiss diplomatic service who spent “the majority of his career in banking” with Lombard, Odier & Cie.
  8. Baroness Kennedy QC, a leading criminal lawyer and a member of the British House of Lords.
  9. Michael Lewis, CEO of Oceana Investment and director of Foschini Limited, one of South Africa’s foremost retail companies with 1,200 stores; co-founder of ProChon Biotech Limited, an Israeli-based biotechnology company.
  10. Sir Michael Pakenham, Senior Advisor to Access Industries, “a US-based private holding company with global interests”; former British Ambassador to Poland.
  11. Baroness Rawlings, member of the British House of Lords; former MP and MEP.
  12. Lord Simon of Highbury, Non-Executive Director of the GDF Suez Group; member of British the House of Lords; former chairman of British Petroleum.
  13. Lord Turner, member of the British House of Lords; Chair of the UK Government’s Climate Change Committee; former Chairman of the UK Financial Services Authority.
  14. Lord George Weidenfeld, a Jewish immigrant from Austria to England in 1938; former journalist and newspaper publisher; Founder and President of the Institute for Strategic Dialogue; co-founder (with Lord Rothschild and Lord Alexander) of the Club of Three (Britain-France-Germany), which later incorporated AMEURUS (America-Europe-Russia). Now 95, Weidenfeld created the Weidenfeld Safe Havens Fund to rescue Middle Eastern Christians from ISIS terrorism, so as to give back to the Christians who had helped him and countless Jews from the Nazi Germans. The Safe Havens Fund will pay for the rescue of at least 2000 Christians, and offer the refugees 18 months of paid support to help them start their new lives. Weidenfeld said, “I had a debt to repay…. It was Quakers and other Christian denominations who brought those children to England. It was a very high-minded operation and we Jews should also be thankful and do something for the endangered Christians.”

Note that:

  • 8 of the 14 members of the Board of Trustees of the Institute of Strategic Dailogue that will “run” the Strong Cities Network are British.
  • At best, only 2 (Baldwin & Finlay) of the 14 members of the Board of Trustees are American.
  • At least 2 members of the Board of Trustees have ties to the Rothschilds.

Below is the press release announcing the inauguration of the Strong Cities Network.

Launch of Strong Cities Network to Strengthen Community Resilience Against Violent Extremism

Cities are vital partners in international efforts to build social cohesion and resilience to violent extremism.  Local communities and authorities are the most credible and persuasive voices to challenge violent extremism in all of its forms and manifestations in their local contexts.  While many cities and local authorities are developing innovative responses to address this challenge, no systematic efforts are in place to share experiences, pool resources and build a community of cities to inspire local action on a global scale.

The Strong Cities Network will serve as a vital tool to strengthen capacity-building and improve collaboration,” said Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch.  “As we continue to counter a range of domestic and global terror threats, this innovative platform will enable cities to learn from one another, to develop best practices and to build social cohesion and community resilience here at home and around the world.

The Strong Cities Network (SCN)  – which launches September 29th at the United Nations – will empower municipal bodies to fill this gap while working with civil society and safeguarding the rights of local citizens and communities.

The SCN will strengthen strategic planning and practices to address violent extremism in all its forms by fostering collaboration among cities, municipalities and other sub-national authorities.

To counter violent extremism we need determined action at all levels of governance,” said Governing Mayor Stian Berger Røsland of Oslo while commenting on their participation in the SCN.  “To succeed, we must coordinate our efforts and cooperate across borders.  The Strong Cities Network will enable cities across the globe pool our resources, knowledge and best practices together and thus leave us standing stronger in the fight against one of the greatest threats to modern society.”

The SCN will connect cities, city-level practitioners and the communities they represent through a series of workshops, trainings and sustained city partnerships.  Network participants will also contribute to and benefit from an online repository of municipal-level good practices and web-based training modules and will be eligible for grants supporting innovative, local initiatives and strategies that will contribute to building social cohesion and resilience to violent extremism.

The SCN will include an International Steering Committee of approximately 25 cities and other sub-national entities from different regions that will provide the SCN with its strategic direction.  The SCN will also convene an International Advisory Board, which includes representatives from relevant city-focused networks, to help ensure SCN builds upon their work.  It will be run by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD), a leading international “think-and-do” tank with a long-standing track record of working to prevent violent extremism:

“The SCN provides a unique new opportunity to apply our collective lessons in preventing violent extremism in support of local communities and authorities around the world”, said CEO Sasha Havlicek of ISD.  “We look forward to developing this international platform for joint innovation to impact this pressing challenge.”

“It is with great conviction that Montréal has agreed to join the Strong Cities Network founders,” said the Honorable Mayor Denis Coderre of Montreal.  “This global network is designed to build on community-based approaches to address violent extremism, promote openness and vigilance and expand upon local initiatives like Montréal’s Mayors’ International Observatory on Living Together.  I am delighted that through the Strong Cities Network, the City of Montréal will more actively share information and best practices with a global network of leaders on critical issues facing our communities.”

The Strong Cities Network will launch on Sept. 29, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. EDT, following the LeadersSummit on Countering ISIL and Violent Extremism.  Welcoming remarks will be offered by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein and Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City, who will also introduce a Keynote address by U.S. Attorney General Lynch.  Following this event, the Strong Cities International Steering Committee, consisting of approximately 25 mayors and other leaders from cities and other sub-national entities from around the globe, will hold its inaugural meeting on Sept. 30, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EDT.
