Media’s Orwellian censorship on Hillary Clinton’s health: HuffPo deletes article; bans author who fears for his life

First, it’s the New York Times declaring and advocating abandoning objectivity in reporting on Trump. Then, another NYT writer urges Google to censor searches by concealing information on Hillary Clinton’s health.

Now, Huffington Post is actually resorting to post-publication censorship by deleting two articles on Hillary’s health and banning the author.

As reported by Paul Joseph Watson for InfoWars, yesterday, August 28, within hours after Huffington Post published a commentary piece by David Seaman discussing questions surrounding Hillary’s health problems, the article was deleted, followed by HuffPo banning Seaman altogether by revoking his posting rights.

The link to Seaman’s erstwhile article now contains an editor’s note stating, “This post is no longer available on the Huffington Post.”

In 2008, however, articles questioning John McCain’s health were heavily featured on Huffington Post.

In the YouTube video below (followed by my transcript), Seaman described HuffPo‘s censorship as “chilling” and “Orwellian,” and the media coverage of this election as totally biased. He now fears for his life.

Seaman said:

“It’s chilling. I haven’t really absorbed this. Huffington Post…they’ve revoked my publishing access and deleted both of my articles that were published earlier over the weekend. Both of my articles have been pulled without notice of any kind, just completely deleted from the Internet, and both of those articles mentioned Hillary’s health…and I linked to a video that YouTuber Joseph Paul Watson had uploaded back on August 4, showing signs that Hillary Clinton’s health is quite poor, showing something that appears to be either a seizure or involuntary muscle spasm while she was questioned by a number of reporters. That video…has been viewed more than 3.5 million times. So it was a very newsworthy thing for me to link out to, people are talking about it…. Whenever a video concerning a presidential candidate’s health is viewed more than 3.5 million times, somebody who’s under contract to Huffington Post and to AOL should be able to link out to that, especially as a journalist living in the United States of America should be able to link out to that without having their account revoked without any notice…late on a Sunday night…. This is really not good. I’ve written hundreds of stories, filed hundreds of stories over my years as a journalist and pundit, and I’ve never had anything like this happen…. I honestly have never seen anything like this. This is happening in the United States in 2016. It’s frankly chilling, I’m a little scared…. I’m doing this video also to say I am not suicidal right now. I am not a particularly clumsy person. I don’t own a car at the moment, I uber around everywhere. So if I am to slip in the shower over the next couple of days or something silly like that, we have to kind of employ probability and statistics here ’cause I am not a clumsy person, right. I am also not a depressed person right now. I am a person who’s spooked out though. This is extremely spooky. I don’t like it, and privately I’ve said to some of my friends what’s happening with some of the media companies in their coverage of this election, I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s scary, how they’re not even booking guests to do opposing views. It’s just these non-stop propaganda segments against Trump about how he’s so racist, these emotional knee-jerk points over and over again — that he’s racist, that he’s sexist, and he’s this and he’s that. But they’re ignoring one really big issue that’s starting to bubble up on the Internet. Certainly, I would not have posted about it had Paul Watson’s video had not already been viewed more than 3.5 million times…. And to delete my post about it without notice on a Sunday night and to revoke my access, which has never been done to me before…. I don’t know what to do. I just want to document it now while it’s all fresh. I’ve taken some screen shots, we now have this video, at least it will be archived, we can all spread the word. And in the morning, I can assure you when I’ve had a good night’s sleep I’m going to seek some very good legal counsel and see what the next steps here are.

Thank you again so much, everybody who watches this tonight. I don’t feel like I’m alone right now. Again, I am not depressed or anything, it just spooks me out. This is not good. This is not protection of my First Amendment right, not only as a citizen here publishing on U.S. soil. I’m not down in Brazil somewhere like Glen Greenwald. I’m not publishing controversial stuff; I just linked out to a fucking YouTube video that’s been viewed 3.5 million times since the beginning of this month. And for Huffington Post to delete those posts without notice, that is Orwellian, that’s a thing I read about in mainland China…. Something is up here; this is not unbiased coverage of this election.

Thank you, guys, for watching. And, again, thank you for having my back…. Just by watching this, you are a record of what’s going on. You can correct the record if something happens, and they start to spin some bullshit narrative. I’m perfectly fine, I’m not clumsy, I plan on reporting more on this certainly. Now the story is they’re deleting and censoring commentary on her health. Why is that?”

You heard him. Help David Seaman by spreading the word via your email and social media!

Here’s the video by Paul Joseph Watson to which Seaman posted a link in his now-deleted HuffPo article. The video has now been viewed more than 3.6 million times.

PrisonPlanet misleads readers on Brzezinski and New World Order

A reader sent me the link to an essay by Paul Joseph Watson on Alex Jones’ Prison Planet website.

Watson’s article of Nov. 26, 2012, carries this very attention-grabbing title: “Brzezinski: ‘Populist Resistance’ is Derailing the New World Order.”

“New World Order” (NWO) is a loaded term that refers to a conspiratorial plan by a group of global elites to abolish nation-states and replace them with a one-world government.

Zbigniew Brzezinski is the former National Security Adviser to President Jimmy Carter. Before he joined the Carter administration, Brzezinski was a political science professor at Columbia University and a protegé of Henry Kissinger.

ZB

Watson began his essay with:

During a recent speech in Poland, former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski warned fellow elitists that a worldwide “resistance” movement to “external control” driven by “populist activism” is threatening to derail the move towards a new world order.

Brzezinski had delivered that speech at the European Forum For New Ideas (EFNI), an organization that Watson describes as advocating “the transformation of the European Union into an anti-democratic federal superstate.”

In concluding his essay Watson then reiterates the NWO theme:

This is by no means the first time Brzezinski has lamented the burgeoning populist opposition to external domination by the global elite. During a 2010 Council on Foreign Relations speech in Montreal, Brzezinski also warned that a ‘global political awakening,’ in combination with infighting amongst the elite, was threatening to derail the move towards a one world government.

Watson’s essay got my attention because Brzezinski’s speech:

  • Confirms that there really is a global elite who have a plan for a “new world order”; and
  • The alternate media of the Internet, blogs, and talk radio have so succeeded in informing Americans about the NWO that we have “derailed” the elite’s plan!

So I got to work writing a post with this introduction:

If you’re still skeptical that there’s a global elite or that this elite has a plan to install a New World Order under one government, this news should turn you into a believer.

Watson’s article on Prison Planet includes a YouTube video of 6+ minutes from Brzezinski’s speech. Wanting to know more about what Brzezinski said beyond the bare bones that Watson conveyed, I decided I would watch the video and transcribe what Brzezinski said. So I spent half a morning playing and stopping the video so that I could write down what Brzezinski said.

Imagine my surprise when, after listening to the entire 6:24 minutes long video and reviewing my transcription, I discovered that NO WHERE IN HIS SPEECH DID BRZEZINSKI EVER MENTION THE WORDS “NEW WORLD ORDER”!

Instead, his speech was about how the 20th century had been the American Century but that the 21st century likely will not be. America can no longer dominate the world because of a worldwide “populist resistance,” especially in the Middle East and southwest Asia.

This is a standard and not particularly novel thesis held by academics in the political science subfield of international politics and foreign relations. I myself had said this countless times in teaching my university students on World Politics.

It may turn out that Zbigniew Brzezinski in fact is an elitist who plots for a New World Order, but he didn’t say or do that in his speech at the European Forum For New Ideas. By mischaracterizing Brzezinski’s speech in NWO terms, Paul Joseph Watson had misled his readers, whether intentionally or unintentionally. Doing that ill serves those among us who have a legitimate concern about the NWO because it plays into the hands of our opponents who then use this to bash and dismiss us as tinfoil-hat conspiracy kooks.

You can see for yourself. Here is the video of Brzezinski’s speech, followed by my transcript of most of what he said (I stopped transcribing toward the end because it was clear Brzezinski was not talking about the NWO):

Zbigniew Brzezinski: “A truly American domination is no longer possible. That is so for several reasons.

In recent decades, worldwide social change has experienced an unprecedented worldwide acceleration, particularly because of instant mass communication, such as radio, television, and the Internet, which cumulatively have been stimulating a universal awakening of mass political consciousness. The resulting widespread rise in worldwide populist activism is proving inimical to external domination of the kind that prevailed in the age of colonialism and imperialism.

Persistent and highly motivated populist resistance of politically awakened and historically resentful peoples to external control has proven to be increasingly difficult to suppress, as guerrilla warfares in Vietnam, Algeria, or Afghanistan have amply demonstrated. And as the rising turmoil in both the Middle East and Southwest Asia are foreshadowing.

At the same time, the acquisition by major powers of weaponry of increasingly destructive capabilities has made the notion of victory in a nuclear war prohibitively costly. That has prompted a degree of self-restraint that was absent in the pre-atomic age in relations among major powers.

Last but not least, the ongoing shift in the center of gravity of global political power from the West to the East, dramatized by the rise of China and of Asia more generally, signals conclusively the onset of a historically new and more complex distribution of global power.

In that much more complex historical and geopolitical setting, democratic America admittedly is still the world’s most powerful, the richest, and the most influential state. Therefore much depends on how America conducts itself in world affairs….”

Brzezinski then proceeds to lament how the partisan divide in the United States has become increasingly bitter, which makes more difficult the conduct of America’s foreign relations and the formation of our foreign policy. He ends this segment in the video by naming the other world powers — China, Russia, Germany, France, Great Britain, Japan, Australia — who have transformed the world from a unipolar world of a single superpower (the USA) to a multipolar world of several great powers.
