Strangely, the designation of Antifa as domestic terrorists is ignored by both the Trump DOJ and FBI, as well as by police departments across the U.S., especially the Portland PD.
Last Saturday, June 29, in Portland, Antifa terrorists doused independent journalist Andy Ngo with milkshake containing quick-drying cement, viciously assaulted an elderly man with a crowbar, then maced and hit another man (who tried to help the elderly man) with the crowbar.
Now, the violent and lawless Antifa DOMESTIC TERRORISTS are planning to disrupt the July 6 Free Speech Rally in Washington, D.C.
On June 29, 2019, Big League Politics reports that a pro-Antifa individual who calls himself “POUND ON YOUR BOY” threatened to attack attendees of the Demand Free Speech rally on July 6 in Washington, D.C. with “muriatic acid, wax, and balloons”:
“I just want to toss as many balloons of Muriatic acid in the faces as many Proud Boys I can [sic]. I just want to blind as many of you c**k suckers are possible [sic].”
The threats were made on a popular right-wing Telegram channel, which prompted the rally’s co-organizer and chairman of Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio, to contact the FBI and DHS, who are now planning to provide additional security for the event.
On Tuesday, July 2, News2Share‘s Ford Fischer was invited to the “All Out DC” Antifa group’s “community gathering” on their plans to disrupt the Free Speech Rally. Fischer reported on the Antifa meeting in a series of tweets. He points out that “I believe myself, AP, and Washington Post were in the room but I’m the first/only one to report on this so far.”
Antifa DC began the meeting by highlighting individuals whom they label as “Nazis”, “white nationalists”, “Islamophobes” and “anti-Hispanic” racists: Roger Stone, Gavin McInnes, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, Enrique Tarrio, Jack Posobiec, Mike Cernovich, and Joey Salads.
Antifa DC concluded their “community meeting” with this plan (see below) for July 6.
On that day, Antifa DC will gather around Pershing Park, close to Freedom Plaza where the Free Speech Rally will take place, followed at 6 pm with a “protest” of Free Speech Rally’s after-party, wherever it occurs.
Here’s the video of the DC Antifa’s planning meeting:

I don’t often give ear these days to Alex Jones, but this time I am listening. Why am I listening? Because I also noticed that Hillary has emerged again in fighting mode after a long period in hiding. Alex may have the correct explanation.
Hillary has been very hard to find for a while, but has now come out with an outrageous(er) accusation against President Trump. She is now openly calling for criminal prosecution of the President. In the mean time, Trump has been flipping one Deep State operative after another to move all his forces into place for an all-out take-down of the criminals who have been abusing the nation for a long time.
Keep our President and his close circle in prayer, especially against assassination attempts. And let us keep our hearts in the right place by remembering this key scripture:
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14
Based on this word, our victory does not come by superior force of arms, or by any one “Fearless Leader,” but by God’s people (however few or many) getting right with God. It is a direct proposition that when we do this, He will do that.
Here in the United States, some privately-owned businesses — including banks — are doing that. Below are examples of politicized businesses that are actively against the Second Amendment and discriminate against gun-owners:
Chase Bank is going after conservatives and Trump supporters by closing their accounts.
Chase Bank is one of the Big Four banks in the United States, with more than 5,100 branches and 16,000 ATMs. (The other three big banks are Bank of America, Citigroup and Wells Fargo.) Known as Chase Manhattan Bank until 2000 when it merged with multinational banking and financial services holding company J.P. Morgan & Co. Headquartered in Manhattan, NYC, Chase Bank is the consumer and commercial banking subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase & Co.
On February 26, 2019, I reported on Chase Bank denying service to four conservatives & Trump supporters: Joe Biggs, Laura Loomer, Martina Markova, and Enrique Tarrio. This post is a follow-up on the case of Enrique Tarrio, a Cuban-black who is the chairman of a fraternal organization called Proud Boys, slimed by Wikipedia as “a far-right neo-fascist organization that admits only men as members and promotes political violence.”
As reported by Big Leaque Politics, Tarrio received a letter from Chase Bank, dated February 4, 2019, that “After careful consideration, we have determined that we can no longer support your banking account(s) and will be closing it on April 01, 2019.” The letter came days after Chase Bank’s payment processor, Chase Paymentech, de-platformed Tarrio on 1776.shop — a website he runs that allows groups and charities to sell merchandise and raise money for causes. The website is most known for selling the “Roger Stone Did Nothing Wrong” shirts which Stone was wearing during the late-night arrest at his home.
Tarrio says that before Chase terminated his account, he had asked the bank why, but phone operators for Chase were unable to explain why his business account was being terminated.
Two days ago, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released an undercover video of conversations with Chase Bank professionals discussing the closure of Tarrio’s account.
As described by Project Veritas, “Multiple Chase account and bank managers were unable to assist Tarrio, saying that inquiries regarding the closure of his business account would have to be directed to the ‘executive office.’” Chase banker Marcel Smith said the bank typically gives its customers a reason for account closures: “I see nothing that indicates any reason why the account should be closed, I don’t see any outstanding transactions or anything ridiculous. I’ve never seen them not give a response to someone whose account they had closed.”
An analyst from the Chase executive office, Nora, told Tarrio that his account was being closed for various clerical issues. But Tarrio, in a phone conversation with Nora which was published by Project Veritas, made clear there were no “clerical issues”.
But a Project Veritas (PV) undercover audio of a conversation with a Chase Corporate Global Media Relations employee reveals that Chase Bank does make political judgments about their customers:
PV JOURNALIST: I don’t want to do business with anyone who does business with Steve Bannon, or any of these alt right people, and that’s just one of my prerequisites.
CHASE: Right, right. As far as I’m concerned, we’re not connected with Steve Bannon.
JOURNALIST: Do you have standards in place that would preempt such relationship with anyone, um of Steve Bannon’s.–
CHASE: Oh definitely. Definitely, definitely.
JOURNALIST: That’s what I’m calling to inquire about. Tell me more.
CHASE: Right so I mean, Chase is not involved with any like, you know, alt right people or anything. I really can’t name names but it’s basically like we don’t get involved with any of that…
JOURNALIST: … I don’t expect for you guys, I’m not talking about who you guys give money to –
CHASE: No, just any business relationships, period.
JOURNALIST: Really? Okay… So I mean on my end I’m talking about people like Trump supporters for instance. The MAGA, whatever – make, whatever the hell they, those types of people, I mean individuals.
CHASE: Right, right. I know what you mean, but like I said the call is being recorded, monitored, so I can’t get too political. And say I don’t support these people, or this, but you know, any kind of business entity, people like that, no moral character or anything like that, the bank usually doesn’t get involved with that.
After Project Veritas released the undercover audio, Chase Bank issued a denial:
“We do not close accounts due to political affiliation. Despite what was described in the video, that was NOT someone from Global Corporate Media Relations.”
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe observes:
“Are there unwritten Chase policies that Mr. Tarrio and others were in breach of? ‘Debanking’ appears to be a new frontier in American politics.”

Now, Chase Bank is going after conservatives and Trump supporters by closing their accounts.
Chase Bank is one of the Big Four banks in the United States, with more than 5,100 branches and 16,000 ATMs. (The other three big banks are Bank of America, Citigroup and Wells Fargo.)
Chase Bank was known as Chase Manhattan Bank until 2000 when it merged with J.P. Morgan & Co., the multinational banking and financial services holding company. Headquartered in Manhattan, NYC, Chase Bank is the consumer and commercial banking subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase & Co.
In January 2019, Markova received a letter from Chase Bank, dated January 24, 2019, stating that “After a recent review of your account, we have decided to end our relationship with you.” Below is a screenshot of the letter:
“I received a letter saying that the bank is going to end its relationship with me and I didn’t know why I called them and they said that they can’t tell me why they are shutting it down. They refuse to tell me and when I complained about it they said that they have the right to close my account without telling me why. When I saw other right wingers/conservatives getting their Chase accounts closed I was then convinced that it was political. I was concerned over my IndieGoGo campaign. Luckily, IndieGoGo will allow me to change banks, but in the meantime I have to transfer lots of funds and sort out all the new information. You can still contribute to my IndieGoGo campaign.”
(2) Enrique Tarrio
Enrique Tarrio, who is Cuban-black, is the chairman of a fraternal organization called Proud Boys, which is slimed by Wikipedia as “a far-right neo-fascist organization that admits only men as members and promotes political violence.” This is how Proud Boys describes itself:
Proud Boys‘ values center on the following tenets:
Pro-Free Speech (1st Amendment)
Pro-Gun Rights (2nd Amendment)
Glorifying the Entrepreneur
Venerating the Housewife
Reinstating a Spirit of Western Chauvinism
…We do not discriminate based upon race or sexual orientation/preference…. We have an international reach, with members spanning the globe.
As reported by Big Leaque Politics, Tarrio received a letter from Chase Bank, dated February 4, 2019, that “After careful consideration, we have determined that we can no longer support your banking account(s) and will be closing it on April 01, 2019.” Below is a screenshot of the letter:
The letter came days after Chase Bank’s payment processor, Chase Paymentech, de-platformed Tarrio on 1776.shop — a website he runs that allows groups and charities to sell merchandise and raise money for causes. The website is most known for selling the “Roger Stone Did Nothing Wrong” shirts which Stone was wearing during the late-night arrest at his home.
(3) Joe Biggs
Joe Biggs is an Iraq war veteran, former Infowars reporter, and high-profile supporter of President Trump.
In June 2016, Biggs reported for Infowars that the Secret Service was the source of leaks on then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s deteriorating health. For a video of why Biggs left Infowars, click here.
Last week, Biggs discovered Chase Bank suspended his account without any explanation. He contacted his local bank office and was told they cannot tell him why he was suspended. After Biggs’s tweet about Chase Bank closing his account went viral, employees from Chase contacted him and restored his account.
Biggs is calling for a boycott of Chase Bank due to their targeted closures of the accounts of independent media personalities, and encouraged people to tweet the hashtag #DumpChase.
(4) Laura Loomer
The latest political target of Chase Bank is Laura Loomer, a conservative independent journalist and political activist.
Last January, Loomer led a protest in front of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)’s mansion in Napa Valley, CA. Loomer brought a group of illegal immigrants from Guatemala and Mexico, and set up a “sanctuary camp” on Pelosi’s lawn, with photos of Americans — including Kate Steinle — who were killed by illegal aliens. Police were called, and evicted, i.e., deported, the group of illegals.
Laura Loomer’s sanctuary camp at Nancy Pelosi’s Napa Valley home
Conservative activist Laura Loomer was already banned from Twitter months ago. This was after Laura attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar on her own record and beliefs. A CAIR activist was reportedly behind the silencing of Laura Loomer.
And today Laura Loomer was blocked from her Chase Bank app.
Here’s a pic of Loomer’s Chase Bank app.:
Loomer told Gateway Pundit:
“Chase Bank targeting a Jewish Conservative activist and journalist is a disgusting attack on our rights as Americans. First they marginalized a colored man for his support of President Donald Trump. Then they targeted combat veteran Joe Biggs. Now they have suspended my access to the Chase app which I used to manage my bills. These censorship tactics that are being carried out by left leaning executives like Jamie Dimon, Jack Dorsey, and Mark Zuckerberg are disgusting and depraved. I’m the target today. Tomorrow, it could be any one of you who dares to have a conservative opinion or idea.These Nazi like censorship tactics send a clear message that supporting Donald Trump can bankrupt, silence, and marginalize people who ought to be considered a protected class. I’m sick to my stomach knowing that I am being targeted by billionaires who have now suspended my access to my online banking via the Chase App, and I am contemplating ways to fight back. The suspension of my chase app comes just weeks after I was banned by PayPal. Why am I being treated like a terrorist in my own country? Is it now a crime in America to be a supporter of President Donald Trump? It sure feels like it.”
Those who follow the self-described Trump White House insider who calls himself Q, aka QAnon, had been led to believe in one important date after another, none of which materialized.
The most recent date on which something major was supposed to happen was December 5. But the only thing that happened on December 5 was not the anticipated crackdown on the cabal, but former President George H.W. Bush’s funeral.
Then we were told that the “something major” had to be postponed because of the funeral.
So I waited.
Instead of the much-ballyhooed “The Storm”, everything is getting worse:
Republicans lost their majority in the House.
The Mueller investigations not only continue but are expanding.
The Wall isn’t getting built.
And to add insult on injury, yesterday the Trump State Department announced $10.6 billion in aid for southern Mexico and $5.8 billion in aid for Central America from whence came the invading migrant “caravans”. (Daily Wire)
December 5 was the last straw for me.
Yesterday, thiswas posted by Enceladus72 on Voat‘s “Great Awakening” subverse. Before it was deleted by the moderator, the post had 4,338 views, 194 upvotes, 33 downvotes, and 416 comments:
I believe you are the real deal i.e. not a larp. However I believe your main purpose has been to contain the unbridled rage of Trumps base. It fits lock and key with ‘trust the plan’. Just wait, and memes away, no other action necessary team Q has this, hold my beer, nothing to see here. You don’t need us just keep us from ruining your plan. About the plan. Is the plan to occupy Syria for the foreseeable future? How about regime change in Iran? Fight fight fight! And lets not forget about Yemen. Cuddling up to those hairy backed camel fuckers in the KSA? All part of the plan? Trump’s base didn’t vote for any of that neocon bullshit. Trust me I don’t trust you. I’ll continue with trust Sessions or the midterms are secure or are you ready for arrests. You get the point. You better hope your little containment OP holds together because while pedophiles satanist might be scary we the Patriots are much more fearsome. We have God himself on our side and a flaming righteous indignation.
Kisses Joe ‘Q’ Public
Some comments in agreement:
“For my part, I have waited long enough. January 1 is the deadline many of us have been living by.”
A sample of comments still believing in Q:
“Don’t group me into your Joe Public stuff. I have my own mind and I am sticking with the plan as presented. I have been looking at all of this shit (not Q related) for the last 10 years so what has been accomplished in the last 2 years (with Q) has really given me hope for our country. Just slow down and look at other reasons why things are being done the way they are.”
“At least wait another month before you give up your faith. Think about it.All these executive orders DJT has passed relating to Treason, Military Tribunals, Confiscating wealth of people involved in Human traffic, the war on pedos. The ligit wwwpacer.gov sealed indictments and finally the EO that goes into effect on Jan 1st 2019 that allows these people to be tried in public courts by the public in the form of Military Tribunals. Too many coincidences for all of this to be fake. I am hanging in there and am not willing to give up hope.”
“This is a long game. The deep state’s tentacles are deep and interwoven. The only way to truly take them out is to get every thing in place so that when the trap is sprung there is no escape. The cabal thrives on fear and chaos. They would like nothing more than a violent revolution so they can react and really clamp down, not to mention it would take them closer to their depopulation goals. I don’t think those that are clamoring for instant gratification would like the consequences. If we erupt in a shooting civil war in this day and age, we would be vulnerable to military attack, to social collapse and chaos, danger to our overseas interests… and much more. This isn’t the 19th century.”
“I understand that everyone wants some catalyzing moment. Something shocking like what they saw on 9/11 but for the good. But history doesn’t work that way. Even 9/11 didn’t work that way – it started long before that date and continues in its effects to this day.
So everyone chill out…. And if it’ll make you feel better, make a list of all the big happenings since 2016. I know it seems like nothing is happening when you’re glued to your phone clicking and waiting for perp walks but make that list if you’re serious. You see that a tremendous amount of shit has happened since 2016, but maybe not in the last 5 mins so you can get your fix.
What do you think? Are you losing patience with Q?
For me, I don’t buy Q’s stated reason for writing in code — so that “the opposition” won’t know Trump’s plans. The only problem is this: Q has spawned a veritable cottage industry of Q acolytes decoding his cryptic messages. If Q acolytes can decode his messages, “the opposition” can also decode. And if they are too stupid to do it, they can just read Q acolytes’ decoding that is freely available online. So what’s the point for Q to continue writing in code?
The QAnon phenomenon has spawned expressions and slogans such as “The Great Awakening” and “WWG1WGA” (Where We Go One, We Go All) and a large following, some of whom carry Q-signs and wear Q t-shirts to Trump rallies.
Q references in Trump allies eventually compelled the Fake News Hate America MSM to report on the phenomenon, not objectively but with the media’s characteristic negative spin by calling the Q phenomenon a “bizarre” “conspiracy theory taking hold among Trump supporters”.
Calling something a “conspiracy theory” is the Fake News Media’s favorite way of discrediting something, never mind the fact that it was the CIA that coined the expression “conspiracy theory” as a way to discredit any and all questions challenging the government’s narrative.
According to Q, the bulwark on whom President Trump relies against the evildoers and machinations of the Deep State is the U.S. military, including military intelligence.
So it’s no surprise that the military are Q champions.
The U.S. Army Central, formerly the Third U.S. Army, is a military formation of the United States Army, which saw service in World War I and II, the 1991 Gulf War, and in the coalition occupation of Iraq. Best known for its campaigns in World War II under the command of General George S. Patton, it serves as the echelon above corps for the Army component of CENTCOM (US Central Command).
As it describes itself, U.S. Army Central currently functions as America’s land domain experts in the Middle East, Central Asia, and South Asia – providing continuous oversight and control of Army operations throughout the region. It is headquartered at Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina, with approximately 600 assigned Soldiers. Army Central has a forward element at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, with approximately 20,000 assigned and attached soldiers.
@usarmycentral is official twitter handle of U.S. Army Central, Shaw AFB, Sumter, SC.
Below is U.S. Army Central’s tweet yesterday, Oct. 29, with a pic of soldiers making a Q!
If the formation of soldiers were signifying 10:30, it would look like this:
Around three weeks ago, I received a invitation from Dr. Eowyn. It was an offer to be a contributor here on FOTM. Before I could answer, I noticed Dr. Eowyn had already added me to the lineup.
Fellowship of the Minds writers, readers and researchers, people that leave comments and Dr. Eowyn have been my main inspiration to get back into writing. All having a huge influence on how I write and where I am today. With that being said, naturally I accepted the invitation. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be apart of the Fellowship.
Instead of just jumping into things, I thought it would be a good idea to give a brief introduction of myself.
I’ve been a reader of FOTM for quite some time. I’ve contributed some of my research results in the past. That was quite awhile ago. Parkland shooting comes to mind. Currently, I have a lot to contribute, but having enough time to put it text is a different story. Working that out.
Most of my time involves Q Anon and The Great Awakening. Those of you that stay informed with the Q movement would know that on Reddit, the subreddit Great Awakening has recently been banned from Reddit. This is where I work as a moderator. Almost 38,000,000 page views last month and they still get banned.
Several other Q Anon, Trump supporter subreddits got banned also. It was a political move. Everyone from, the CIA, Antifa, Soros, administrators of Reddit and a Reddit executive were involved. In the future I will provide information and proof. I have it.
Sadly, there were people from within our group involved also. We were able to relocate the same day to VOAT and start a new board on 8chan. Now I spend my time moderating at the new locations. In a way it is similar to what
happened here at FOTM when WordPress burned down the blog on August 15, 2018. It has its differences but definitely political.
I like to stay away form topics that lack solid proof when I can. But, on occasion, certain issues require immediate attention and need to be discussed. With or without proof. Another example would be when I write about some of my personal experiences. I think people’s personal experiences are one of the best sources for information. Everyone has something to teach. Everyone should have a voice.
Being an advocate for free speech. There will be times when I’ll try to write in a way that includes the readers. I want the readers to be part of the discussion. So it’s not just my story. It’s our story. I’m just providing the topic. We don’t have to always agree with each other. But to make the world a better place we should always communicate. Never be afraid what the opposition has to say. Especially when you are RIGHT. Yes, I’m a “right winger.” But only because of POTUS. I’m more of a Conservative, Libertarian, Nationalist (not the NAZI type). Safe to say, the “left” hates me.
That’s it for now. Thank you for your time. Please leave your comments, good or bad. Any questions or whatever is on your mind. WWG1WGA

“deplorable” as very bad; its synonyms include abominable, abysmal, ghastly, putrid, and repulsive.
“virulent” as dangerous, poisonous, hateful and violent.
“dregs of society” as the part of something that is considered unimportant and unwanted.
During the 2016 presidential campaign on September 9, 2016, although she means to rule over us as POTUS, Hillary Clinton contemptuously called millions of Americans “basket of deplorables”.
That’s arrogance that’s so off-the-scale, it’s Luciferian.
Last Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018, the former Vice President of the United States of America publicly called millions of Americans “virulent people” and “dregs of society”.
Biden made those remarks in his speech at the annual Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington, D.C., September 15, 2018.
Human Rights Campaignis the largest LGBT civil rights advocacy group and political lobbying organization in the United States.
To an enthusiastic crowd of advocates of LGBTQ rights, Biden attacked the millions of Americans who support President Trump, accusing them of “intolerance” and committing a “crime” of prejudice by using religion or culture as a “license to discriminate”.
Biden said (beginning at the 38:23 mark in the CSPAN video):
“We face an administration and some of its most ardent right-wing supporters from the Ku Klux Klan…and the Alt Right are trying to undo all the progress you have made, that Barack [Obama] and I have made for you….
Using religion or culture as a license to discriminate demonize the community, individuals, to score political points is no more justifiable around the world than it is at home and our policies should reflect that. [Cheers and applause]
But despite losing in the courts and in the court of public opinion, these forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you all have made. This time they — not you — have an ally in the White House. They’re a small percentage of the American people, virulent people, some of them the dregs of society. And instead of using the full might of the executive branch to secure justice, dignity, safety for all, the president uses the White House as a literal, literal bully pulpit, callously exerting his power over those who have little or none.”
Our Founding Fathers were learned men who founded the newly independent American Republic on a particular — and correct — view of human nature. They believed that humans have a dual nature, both good and bad, and that we are self-interested but rational, being each capable of discerning what is in our own interests.
That humans are fundamentally selfish accounts for why the Founders fashioned a government that is limited and constrained in its exercise of power, instead of unlimited and totalitarian. As James Madison so eloquently stated in The Federalist Papers:
What is government but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the greatest difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed, and in the next place oblige it to control itself.
Among the constraints that our Founders placed on government to prevent it from abusing political power are the Bill of Rights or the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution, which collectively delimit government’s power by specifying the rights and liberties of the people which no government can abridge. The Founders also created other constraints on government, one of which is a free press (or media).
A free press also serves another function. Since humans are endowed by the Creator with the capacity to reason, the Founding Fathers wanted to ensure that we be given a pluralism and variety of information and knowledge — the “market place of ideas” — which we can utilize to make the “right” choices in the ballot box and away.
Surveys have found that journalists of the Mainstream Media are overwhelmingly partisan in favor of one political party. For example, a poll found that Washington media correspondents voted Democratic 93% to 7% (see Professor Tim Groseclose’s Left Turn, How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind). As a result of the MSM’s partisanship, the First Amendment’s freedom of the press no longer delivers pluralism of information and ideas.
Happily, with the rise of the Internet, social media and alternate media are doing what the MSM whether willingly or by coercion no longer do. A recent Pew Research Center study found that some 14% of Americans have changed their minds about an issue because of something they saw on social media. But the voice of both social and alternate media is now being silenced, one by one, by privately-owned high-tech corporations acting in the interest of and in cahoots with the Democratic Party and the Deep State.
The social media tech giants — Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Disqus — are all owned and operated by liberals/Democrats/Progressive, i.e., the Left. Although they are separate corporations, their similar political partisanship and ideology make them a virtual monopoly. When they each act to censor and stifle the American people’s freedom of speech in social and alternative media, their collective reach approaches totalitarian in scope.
Think of those tech giants as private enterprises with deceptive smiles but razor-sharp teeth.
Having unexpectedly lost the 2016 presidential election, in which social and alternative media played a significant role in electing D.C. outsider Donald Trump, Democrats and the tech giants have learned a lesson. To ensure against a repeat of 2016, the cabal of tech giants are silencing dissenting voices on social media and blogs before this November’s mid-term election.
The cabal first went after a giant AltMedia target — Alex Jones and his InfoWars. Next is the 21st-century digital version of book-burning when web-host WordPress began, abruptly and without warning, shutting down (“suspend”) blogs, including Fellowship of the Minds, ostensibly because they had violated WordPress’ Terms of Service (TOS).
Other blogs and voices that are silenced include (incomplete list):
Facebookis blocking ads for pro-Trump Diamond & Silk’s upcoming movie Dummycrats.
The internet browser Mozilla Firefox is pushing an “Information Trust Initiative” to block independent media sources at the browser level while favoring corporate media giants like fake news CNN (Natural News).
From a FOTM reader: “A priest who has a website in Europe told me that a liberal priest from the United States sent someone from Europe to shut down his website. This good priest was exposing Obama’s and other liberals’ agenda.”
The hypocrisy of WordPress is particularly galling. As Dr. James Tracy points out in his Memory Hole Blog, after silencing those it has identified as violating its TOS, WordPress nevertheless continues to host blogs “that are in demonstrable violation of the company’s TOS,” including the neo-Nazi Daily Stormer and blogs by Antifa, whom the Obama administration’s FBI and DHS had identified in April 2016 as “domestic terrorists”.
Explanations as to why WP-hosted blogs are being taken down include the following:
Because the blogs are conservative and/or Christian (see WND; Breitbart).
Because the blogs posted on the 2012 Sandy Hook mass shooting being a false-flag hoax (see Phibetaiota.net; Techcrunch). As an example, Cinderella’s Broom, a relatively small blog that mainly posted on Sandy Hook, was taken down. WordPress is so vindictive that they also took down Cinderella’s three other blogs, none of which has political content.
Because those blogs posted on other false flags, e.g., 9/11 and the 1985 Space Shuttle Challenger explosion, which suggests it is the Deep State that’s engineering the take-downs (see Natural News; All News Pipeline). That in turn has an ominous implication: Is the Deep State silencing bloggers who write about false flags because either a massive false flag or a diabolical conspiracy is in the works, such as an attempt to assassinate President Trump?
An email I just received from Stewart Ogilby lends strength to the #3 explanation. Ogilby had re-published my April 2015 post that the Challenger astronauts may be alive. He writes:
“The situation is worse than we fear. This morning the file that previously loaded your page intact (challenger.htm), including the graphics, not only
no longer loads from my server, but the file itself has been corrupted. I do not use WordPress or any other webpage ‘wizzard’.”
The tech giants do what they do because they are sanctioned and shielded by the 1996 Communications Decency Act (CDA), specifically Section 230’s “Safe Harbor” provision, which allows social media giants like Facebook and Twitter to censor at will any content they don’t like.Former Federal Communications Commission (FCC) wireless bureau chief Fred Campbell is on a mission to repeal that provision. (Read more about this on Thought Police.)
As if the Safe Harbor provision isn’t bad enough, Virginia Democrat senator Mark Warner means to restrict our free speech even further. In a policy paper obtained by Axios and in the name of combating “fake news,” Warner would have our freedom of speech be even more abridged by:
Requiring web platforms to label so-called fake and bot accounts or do more to identify “authentic” accounts, with the threat of sanction by the Federal Trade Commission if they fail to do so.
Making web platforms legally liable for claims of “defamation, invasion of privacy, false light, and public disclosure of private facts”.
Axios observes that “Warner, who made his fortune in telecommunications before running for office, has been a prominent critic of major social media platforms from his perch as top Democrat overseeing the intelligence committee’s investigation of Russian election interference.” Although Warner’s proposal for now is just that, a “Democratic wave in November could put more momentum behind these ideas”.
To the tech giants must be asked the same question that I’ve asked Sandy Hookers who harass, attack, terrorize, successfully get YouTube and WordPress take down videos, posts and entire blogs, and send hateful and life-threatening emails to Sandy Hook researchers who are simply exercising our First Amendment right to free speech and free press:
If you have truth on your side, why would you stifle our voices? What are you so afraid of?

Last Wednesday, August 15, 2018, like a thief in the night, in the darkness of the early morning hours between 1 AM and 3 AM, WordPress (WP) arbitrarily and without warning took down Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM) — a blog that was nearly 9 years old, with 38½ million views, and tens of thousands of published posts.
The reason given was an unspecified “violation” of WP’s Terms of Service (TOS).
I immediately asked WP exactly which TOS we had “violated”.
It wasn’t until five days later that WP deigned to answer my question with a vague and all-purpose non-explanation:
“Upon review of your WP site, we no longer feel that your account aligns with our TOS and User Guidelines. As such you will no longer be permitted to use WordPress.com.”
Note their use of the word “feel”. One can dispute a fact — whether FOTM in fact had violated a particular term of service. But how can a “feeling” be disputed? You feel happy, which is something I can neither agree nor disagree nor dispute about. It’s an emotion, a feeling.
The domain transfer to our new server is completed, and we are back up and running at https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/.
We are in the process of retrieving and restoring posts from the old FOTM — a curse on WordPress for what they did to us — the digital equivalent of burning down not one book, but an entire library. Until we’ve completed the painstaking process, we won’t know just how much of the old FOTM can be restored, and how many posts are lost forever, unless we can find them in the Internet archives on the Wayback Machine.
In the coming days, weeks, and months, we will re-publish one-by-one whatever posts we are able to salvage, with the original publishing dates.
Thank you for your patience and loyalty. You were our buoy as we struggled to revive FOTM in the eight long days after WordPress burned our library down.
Please come and visit our new site. Exercise your First Amendment Constitutional right to freedom of speech and of opinion that our Founding Fathers so wisely and presciently created 242 years ago. We will not be silenced!!!

God bless you all, God bless Fellowship of the Minds, and God bless America,
