Update: a perspective on Facebook shutting down my links

Update: a perspective on Facebook shutting down my links

by Jon Rappoport

February 20, 2013


Our systems are safe and sound. This goes all the way from blog posts to the ordering pages for my products.

The only issue is Facebook shutting down the capacity to post links with “jonrappoport.wordpress.com” in them. We have solved that on our Facebook page by directing people to my site instead, www.nomorefakenews.com

At the site, people will see the list of my recent articles, and they can click on them and move directly to my blog posts. You, too, can direct people to nomorefakenews.com.

How did the limited Facebook censorship occur? It could have been triggered by people making untrue “spam” or “abusive content” reports. These would have been people who couldn’t stand the heat of analysis that was deeper than what they were looking for.

They could have been paid trolls or agents. They could have been people with partisan political views and no understanding of, or loyalty to, the 1st Amendment.

Or the “Facebook team” might have taken it upon themselves to limit access to my wordpress links, because Facebook is partnered with political players and intelligence agencies, and they decided I was too critical of current government/corporate agendas.

The main thing is my articles continue to go out, and people are reading them. NoMoreFakeNews has grown considerably over the past six months.

I thank you for your support and interest.

If you want to help me and yourself, too, consider ordering my products, which you will find in my store at nomorefakenews. I believe in giving value for value, and over the last 10 years I have been offering all the value I can assemble and report on.

My frequent articles are free to everyone. My products, which explore even deeper layers, are dedicated to exposing every aspect of the Matrix and offering solutions which involve returning to each one of us our power.

When I say power, I mean extraordinary innate creative capacities. It turns out, on analysis, that our civilization and the reality that underpins it are “subnormal.” What each one of us is capable of—as extraordinary as that is—is really a normal state of affairs.

It is just that we have forgotten what we can do.

That is why I started nomorefakenews, and my path and purpose remain the same now. I continue to research individual power and what it means and what it is and how far we can go with it.

I see no limit.

This is the great adventure. It always was.

Changing this world for the better, in all the ways it can be done, also relies on each one of us regaining and expanding our inherent and buried capabilities.

Again, many thanks for your interest and support. It means a great deal to me.

Back in the day, when I was writing for newspapers and magazines, I had a nagging feeling I was only applying about 5 percent of my energy to it. All in all, it was rather amusing to consider I was making strides in that arena deploying so little of what I could do.

Then I realized what really motivated me was not possible to report on, given the bias and fear of editors. So I quit.

In those days, there was no Internet. If you wanted to “get the word out,” you had to find your own way. In my case, I gave lectures, and a fabulous two-person outfit called She Who Remembers often showed up and taped those talks and turned out audiocassettes.

The tapes worked their way around the US and even into other countries. It was makeshift, and very exciting.

Then, the Internet emerged. It took me a while to leave my, yes, typewriter behind, but I forced myself out of the Stone Age and on to what everybody was then proudly calling The Information Highway.

I took a few test drives and loved it. The idea that I could write a piece and then publish it in a matter of seconds was sheer ecstasy, given that I was used to pitching stories to editors, getting the green light, then writing, then submitting, then waiting, then finally seeing my stories in print weeks or even months later.

Now, a decade later, the old media are dying. They’re gasping for air. Internet technology is always cited as the cause, and of course that’s true, but even more than that, those of us who investigate and report without crippling restraints are covering material that millions of people want to know about.

The Matrix Revealed

One of the two bonuses in THE MATRIX REVEALED is my complete 18-lesson course, LOGIC AND ANALYSIS, which includes the teacher’s manual and a CD to guide you. I was previously selling the course for $375. This is a new way to teach logic, the subject that has been missing from schools for decades.

Major media refuse to cover what we cover. They are sold out to the point where they simply can’t. That’s what’s really squeezing them. They have no choice. They’re trapped. Exactly what could give them a renaissance of audience interest is what they can’t touch, because their masters won’t allow it.

One of our jobs today is making sure the Internet remains free enough to allow us to keep working and publishing and reaching the global population. Waking up to new realities is not that hard to do now. We just have to keep the channels open.

The other day I wrote and published a piece headlined: “The Ruthless State of the Union: the current crime boss speaks.” That may have been the article that triggered the Facebook Blip. In it, I responded to Obama’s statement that, in order to make progress we all had to work together.

I asked, who is this WE he keeps talking about?

Well, in the case of keeping the Internet free and open, the far more important WE is you, I, and everybody else who accesses online information that trumps old, stale, decaying propaganda reality.

This WE is taking over the news and, at the same time, creating a different world, the one we’ve all been wanting for a long time.

And this is just the beginning.

    I believe I found you when I was trying to figure out what the hell was going wrong with the vote on Prop 37.
    Really glad I did.

    Have had problems commenting on your site, and when I click the “like” button to like your site with Blogger, nothing happens.
    But, I like it.

  2. Your excellent writing continues to thrill. Thank you. I will look in your store.

    I am in a weird spot. I am fully half nuts, but in a spiritual/religious way. Since, well, December. Just sayin’.

    I feel courage when I see people like you just doing the work day after day after day. FOR FREE. And I will say that with some fake money from a fake Bank called Chase!

    Off pharma since the fall, I find I have a marvelous mind, and am now almost a hermit as a response…I can only stomach people who breathe fire.

    I am now translating a bit, from broken English to good English, for a Crimean writer (in Russian) who picks apart what he calls western media lies in cellphone videos that are meant to show the police being good and the people deserving to be killed and so on. The sort CNN uses as news footage these days, probably. No pay, and he might be a bad guy for all I know. But his words are correct, and he’s cute, too. So, come get me CIA.

    On FB, I cannot friend anyone, and someone told me she tried to tag my name in something (there were other names too) and FB said she couldn’t do it…because I have friends in Indonesia and Syria. This is now a bad thing to do?

    Yours is a good idea on how to handle FB. I think a better social media site will erupt eventually. I like the fake Ukrainian FB, which is VK.com. A frank replica, but with good modifcations. They even let us join.

    Thanks again.

    I cant believe they censored you. Cant even dignify such. Could be your piece on Obama Speech, got a bit too personal and the democratic party, I think, has been in a mode of attacking those who get personal, and have status, or prestige. Sometimes, I see people contolling their own destiny in their own mind regarding opposition. Sometimes good people hzabitually take on so much, they fall victim to oppression, by those less good, who cant relate to the zeal of doing good. Any quick perusal by fb would show complaints to be slander, and for fb to go forward without crippling itself with immorality, isnt the sensibiity of honest corporation, but corrupted corporation, and in many ways, fb is a wholesome improvement upon myspace, and reduced the angry and stupid

    Youth is wasted on the young….older but wiser adults are hopefully better? We all need to bring ourselves to bare…truth & integrity….the signers of the Declaration of Independence never lied! Why is it so many important politicians are hypocrites? Writers like you see into the logic of speech….but the words in speech don’t reflect the true meanings laid out to the public….What do you feel about those logical writers?

    To all reading Jon … a while back, I purchased the transformation series (mp3) and didn’t know what to expect. I can only say it’s been a great investment. I listened to the lectures while jogging and Jon’s perspective is well articulated. As his articles, he is thought provoking and has come up with the specific exercises that are worth their weight in gold.

    Cheers to all,

    I, for another one, am grateful you’re here, Jon. I am not a writer but I love good investigative journalism. You and Amber Lyon are today’s hero’s like Woodward and Bernstein were once. Or “Woodstein” as they are known ha ha. Love that movie, All The President’s Men. And Gary Webb, RIP. Thanks!

    I don’t belong (never did . . . yay!) to facelessbook and maybe others should unjoin or whatever it’s called in cyberspeak. It’s as bad as wiki now – someone blocks you instead of just changing your message. I also don’t tweet because I don’t want to twitter. Always sounds like people are having convulsions. Online piracy is far from dead. Keep posting stuff Jon, and I pass it off wherever I can. I’ve posted lots of stuff of yours on my forum in the past few months since I’ve found your blog. I feel the same as you do about a lot of issues today.

    Thanks for all you do. It’s much appreciated.

    Really maddening and foul smelling that Facebook takes the liberty of deciding what is “spammy” for your own postings to your own community of friends.


    Hi Denise. Thank for attempting to share.

    now i know why your links wouldn’t work in my yahoo email! FB did the same thing to me, shutting me down over and over. I finally gave it up for over 2 years, but, a lot of weird things happen with censorship happen there! Trolls all over, fake profiles.. I was “friends” with over 8 fake people, giving out a lot of personal information. Guess what? Even after i reported them, I see that many of them are still there.
