Fellowship of the Minds under attack

Late yesterday afternoon, I published the post, “Parkland anomalies: David Hogg was at home during school shooting; interviewed girl before shooting,” then closed down my computer.

I awoke this morning to find a series of 16 successive emails from Jetpack Support, about FOTM doing down and then up throughout the night. Jetpack Support says it’s a connectivity problem.

Although FOTM now uses a non-U.S. host server, after our previous server WordPress burned down our blog on August 15, 2018, we still use WordPress’ Jetpack software because our readers and writers are familiar with the format and all the “bells-and-whistles” features.

I called our host server, and as we were talking on the phone, FOTM came back on. Minutes later, FOTM went down again: All you see is a blank page. I asked the server’s customer support if FOTM is under attack. He refuses to say, but said they’re “monitoring” FOTM and will call back.

He called back and informed me that the reason FOTM keeps going down is because we’re getting “a lot of hits with different IP addresses” — as many as 703,000 IP addresses — which led to periodic “system overload”. He promised that this now has the attention of the server’s “higher-ups” and that they’ll increase FOTM’s “processing” to handle the extraordinary number of “hits”.

Clearly, Fellowship of the Minds is under attack, probably by “bots” pretending to be different IP addresses. The timing of the attacks suggests the attacks are due to the “Parkland anomalies” post. TPTB does not want you to read the post. Happily, James Fetzer has reproduced the post at his blog: https://jamesfetzer.org/2018/11/dr-eowyn-parkland-anomalies-david-hogg-was-at-home-during-school-shooting-interviewed-girl-before-shooting/

Please say a prayer for FOTM.

Facebook took down FOTM just in time for Nov. 6 mid-term election

What I had expected finally happened.

As of last night when I got offline and closed my laptop, Fellowship of the Minds‘ Facebook page was still up.

Ten minutes ago, I discovered that, like rats and cockroaches that come out cloaked in the darkness of night, the Demonrats of Facebook took down FOTM.

This is the message when I tried to access our page:

Recall that in the darkness of the early morning hours of August 15, 2018, our former hosting server WordPress burned down FOTM.

It took us eight days before we restored FOTM with a non-U.S. hosting server. See:

When WordPress took us down, I had asked our readers to send me their email addresses so that we could maintain contact before the restoration of FOTM. I compiled a list of hundreds of email addresses, many of which are those of our Facebook readers.

I expect Twitter will censor by banning FOTM as well.

So if you are a (former) Facebook reader or Twitter reader  of FOTM, please bookmark FOTM or subscribe to FOTM and leave Facebook and Twitter. Surely, you don’t really want to associate with a corporation that censors our U.S. Constitution First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

Pittsburgh synagogue shooting was preceded by an active shooter drill; shooting used to silence AltMedia

It is said that false-flag mass shootings share certain characteristics, one of which is that the shooting was preceded by an active shooter drill at the place of the subsequent mass shooting or a nearby place.

And so it is with the mass shooting yesterday at the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood — a Jewish enclave — of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Eleven were shot dead, ranging in age from 54 to 97; the average age is 74.

Note: The Tree of Life Synagogue is at 5898 Wilkins Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15217.

We are told that yesterday, at around 10 a.m., armed with an assault rifle and three Glock handguns and screaming “All Jews must die!,” Robert Bowers, 46, burst into the Tree of Life Synagogue during Sabbath services, shooting and killing at least 11 people and wounding a half-dozen more, including four police officers, before surrendering.

A rabid anti-Semite, Bowers was treated for gunshot wounds, incurred in a shootout with police. He has been arrested, and faces 29 federal courts and state charges. He’s expected to appear before a federal magistrate on Monday afternoon. (New York Post)

Here is the report by Emily Balser for TribLive on an active shooter drill planned for the Jewish Community Center in Squirrel Hill, PA, on Thursday, January 25, 2018:

Pittsburgh and Allegheny County police along with the FBI will hold an active shooter drill Thursday night in Squirrel Hill.

The drill will take place from 8 p.m. to midnight at the Jewish Community Center, 5738 Forbes Ave.

Darlington Road will be closed from St. Edmund’s Way to Murray Avenue.

Residents may notice a large police presence in the area.

The exercise is closed to the public and the media.

The exercise is to ensure the area is prepared and ready to respond in an active shooter situation. The exercise will include apprehending a shooter, evacuations and treating victims at the scene.

At least 50 volunteers from the Squirrel Hill community and the Jewish Community Center staff will serve as role players for the exercise.

This Google map shows that the Tree of Life Synagogue is a 7-minute drive from the Jewish Community Center where the active shooter drill took place in January 2018.

The synagogue shooting is already used as a pretext to silence the Alternative Media, specifically Gab, a libertarian alternative to Twitter. Unlike Twitter, Gab does not censor speech, although Gab vehemently condemns acts of violence and terrorism.

Bowers has been active on social media, including Gab, where he calls himself @onedingo. His bio on Gab says “Jews are the children of satan. (john 8:44)”. (New York Post)

Upon learning of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter’s identity, Gab immediately took down Bowers’ page, but not before backing it up and sending it to the FBI.

For letting Bowers speak freely on Gab, first PayPal banned Gab, followed by Gab‘s hosting provider, Joyent, saying it will discontinue hosting Gab on Monday morning because of an unspecified “breach of the Joyent Terms of Service”.

But Facebook and Twitter aren’t facing any backlash although Bowers had accounts on both. Likewise, package bomber Cesar Sayoc was allowed to spout threats on Twitter for two years. Twitter suspended Sayoc only after he was arrested two days ago, on Friday, Oct. 26. (RT)

See also DCG’s post, “Twitter is “deeply sorry” for refusing to take down pipe bomb suspect’s tweet“.

In a tweet this morning, Gab says they’ve secured a new hosting provider.

Update (Oct. 29):

This morning, Gab issued this statement on its website:

Gab.com is under attack. We have been systematically no-platformed by App Stores, multiple hosting providers, and several payment processors. We have been smeared by the mainstream media for defending free expression and individual liberty for all people and for working with law enforcement to ensure that justice is served for the horrible atrocity committed in Pittsburgh. Gab will continue to fight for the fundamental human right to speak freely.

As we transition to a new hosting provider Gab will be inaccessible for a period of time. We are working around the clock to get Gab.com back online. Thank you and remember to speak freely.

Evil WordPress shadow-bans Whatfinger News

Shadow banning (also called stealth or ghost banning) is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned. As such, shadow banning is a form of sneaky censorship.

Whatfinger News is a relatively-new but rapidly-rising link-news site like Drudge Report, only better. As it describes itself:

Whatfinger News was founded by military people and 100% unapologetic for being patriotic. That doesn’t mean we don’t show opposing views, sites and papers. We do and label them on the homepage in sections as right wing or left wing, unlike other sites that might trick you into clicking into sites that you would never want to visit. Not us!

FOTM‘s readers have seen our promotion of Whatfinger at the bottom of our posts. Even before we started doing that, Whatfinger had posted links to our posts, which was how I discovered Whatfinger. Each day, we get hundreds and often thousands of referrals from Whatfinger, for which FOTM is most grateful.

Beginning yesterday, I noticed something odd: There were no referrals from Whatfinger! Here’s a screenshot I took of yesterday’s referrals:

So I went on Whatfinger to find out what had happened.

I saw that Whatfinger did post links to our posts, but also this statement:

Many sites have now sent screenshots, sites that we send thousands of people to daily who are all noticing WordPress ‘shadowbanning of stats’ – we all now need to know the truth.  Are all conservative sites targets? Will they blame some ‘algorithm as Facebook likes to do? Can’t be just Whatfinger, since we are new and no where near the size of other sites just yet.

So I went to FOTM‘s stats page, only to discover that WordPress had changed the referrals of the day before, Oct. 11, to remove all referrals from Whatfinger! The problem is, a day before, I had seen thousands of referrals from Whatfiinger, which now had vanished, retroactively expunged by WordPress.

I then clicked on the referrals for September 29, 2018 — a day when FOTM had a record 35,438 unique views. I remember seeing there were thousands of referrals from Whatfinger that day, which WordPress now has retroactively expunged:

What WordPress is doing is dishonest, deceptive, and plain evil. By shadow-banning referrals from Whatfinger, WordPress’ intention is to damage Whatfinger by alienating FOTM from Whatfinger.

Well, WordPress, we are on to you and your evil doings. FOTM will continue to promote Whatfinger News. Despite your evil machinations, Whatfinger News will continue to thrive and hopefully overtake sold-out Drudge Report some day.

Note: On August 15, 2018, WordPress arbitrarily and with no just cause, took down Fellowship of the Minds — the digital equivalent of burning down an entire library, of tens of thousands of blog-posts in nearly 9 years, many of which are the products of original research and genuine investigative journalism that the corporate MSM lackeys no longer undertake. Although FOTM is restored on another server, we use WordPress’ $99 Jetpack software because our readers are familiar with the format and features.

Update (Oct. 19)

The editor of Whatfinger News wrote in an email to me that an individual who contacted WordPress (WP) received a response from WP that “Whatfinger was spamming people”. Some site had complained to WP about spam comments with Whatfinger’s link in Akismet, a spam cop for wordpress posts and messages. But WP refused to say which site made the complaint. So WordPress  “deemed our whole site as spam and shadow banned it, which is just ridiculous and impossible [because there’s] no way to spam someone with visitors.”

Unhinged Google exec slams GOP over Kavanaugh nomination: “F-ck. You. All. To. Hell.”

Don’t let Dave’s smile fool you…he’s a miserable proggie.

These people need to up their meds.

From Fox News: A design lead at Google has slammed Republicans in an angry Twitter rant over the nomination of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“You are finished, @GOP. You polished the final nail for your own coffins. F–K. YOU. ALL. TO. HELL,” wrote Dave Hogue Saturday, in the now-deleted tweet.

“I hope the last images burned into your slimy, evil, treasonous retinas are millions of women laughing and clapping and celebrating as your souls descend into the flames,” he added.

Hogue’s LinkedIn entry describes him as Google’s UX design lead. He has been at the search giant since December 2013, according to the entry.

On Sunday, Hogue confirmed that he had deleted the tweet. “Yes, I deleted that tweet. Yes, those opinions are mine personally, and I am responsible for them. Yes, I should have been more eloquent and less condemning. Yes, I still believe the @GOP is wrong and not serving your best interests. Yes, I still believe we can do much better.”

“What employees say in their personal capacity has no bearing on the way we build or operate our products,” a Google spokeswoman told Fox News, via email.

Kavanaugh was sworn in Saturday night as the 114th justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, after a fierce confirmation battle that included allegations of sexual misconduct, which he denied.

Google is coming under close scrutiny at the moment amid allegations of anti-conservative bias at the company, which it denies.

The firm’s CEO Sundar Pichai met privately with GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill last month to discuss the allegations and concerns about privacy issues and the firm’s re-entry into China.

A source familiar with Google’s closed-door portion of the meeting told Fox News that the meeting “was positive” and the “tone was tough but fair and respectful.” Members “weren’t shy” about sharing their major concerns with Pichai, according to the source, and are looking to interview him in the future.

The meeting came after Google was given “the empty chair treatment” at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. Neither Pichai nor Larry Page, chairman of parent company Alphabet, chose to attend the event on election interference, much to the annoyance of lawmakers.

The curious case of Deplorable Patriot

Hello everyone.

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

Respectfully,

Deplorable Patriot
