Mike Adams, Alex Jones, and the war against the 1st Amendment

Top 12 reasons for eliminating free speech

by Jon Rappoport

March 2, 2017

“Badges? We don’t need no stinking badges.” (Blazing Saddles, 1974)

Free speech? We don’t need no stinking free speech.

In the wake of the economic and political censorship imposed on infowars and Natural News (Google’s delisting of Natural News has now been lifted), it’s become apparent that free speech is passe. Why did we ever need it? Let’s get rid of that illusion.

Let’s embrace, instead, the consensus of virtue-signaling heroes.

If something is offensive, rub it out.

In Alex Jones’ case, a large company that places ads, adroll, decided to drop Jones’ site, infowars, as a client. The decision still stands. The loss of revenue for infowars is estimated at $3 million.

Here are the top 12 reasons for eliminating free speech.

ONE: “I’m triggered by what you just said. Stop talking.”

TWO: People who say certain things could give other people the wrong ideas.

THREE: People can’t be allowed to make up their own minds about what other people say.

FOUR: If you don’t like what people are going to say, it’s more effective to shut them up, rather than letting them say it.

FIVE: It’s fun to shut people up when you don’t like them.

SIX: It’s virtuous to shut people up when their ideas are harmful.

SEVEN: If you’re too ignorant to be able to debate another person, your only sensible option is to shut him up.

EIGHT: Rational debate is useless. People don’t have time for it, and they don’t base their actions on it. Therefore, take a short cut and shut people up when they say what you don’t want them to say.

NINE: Sometimes people will pay you to shut other people up. This is a way to make a living.

TEN: The Constitution is just a piece of paper. Basing your actions on it is a fool’s errand. The Constitution is old. Nothing old is good.

ELEVEN: Fake news is misleading and dangerous. Ban fake news. Let the government and corporations decide what is fake.

TWELVE: Eventually, if enough free speech is shut down, only a few hundred people would speak or write. This would be good. The rest of the people would only shout, scream, and throw rocks through store windows.

Obviously, we need Congress to pass new laws, so we can somehow draft these twelve elements of a New Society and enforce them.

Alex Jones and Mike Adams are prime examples of the dangers of free speech. Both men, in their own way, go against the grain. They expose political, economic, social, medical, military crimes. Who gave them the right to do that? Who allowed this to happen?

Perhaps there is a thirteenth reason to ban free speech lurking in the shadows: Those who speak or write dangerously are obviously mentally ill. They need treatment. They must have treatment. In this way, they can be rehabilitated. It would be the humanitarian thing to do. Then, some day, you would see Mike and Alex speaking on behalf of the Deep State. They would urge all citizens to adopt conformist attitudes and practices. They would praise the coming utopia. They would profess love for collectivism. They would promote Globalist Central Planning and Distribution for all goods and services on planet Earth. Tensions would relax. Smiles would abound. A culture of Nice would triumph. Mike and Alex could form The Universal Church of Polite.

Isn’t that what we all want?

    Two important things to know before moving “forward;” the destiny to which your leaders would take you (slaughterhouse/slave camp under New World Order globalism), and what you are sacrificing (freedom, prosperity, and the greatest nation in history.)

  2. marblenecltr says:

    Horrors await those who march “Forward,” “Progress” (v.), towards “Progress” (n.) most deceitful presented. Turn around, stay with the greatness of our nation, help repair the damage done by the parasites by properly rewarding the producers.

  3. bdoyen says:

    Jon, you are a gem in a sea of dross. Keep up the good work!

  4. Sunshine says:

    Yes. Good idea. That way, when all of our brains are connected to the cloud, we’ll only receive preapproved information. We’ll be given preapproved answers to all preapproved questions at lightning speed.

  5. Greg C. says:

    The gatekeepers are now deciding what we can read or hear. Not only Google, but the House of Representatives, who are keeping a bill secret, the one supposedly to repeal Obamacare, even from most of their members, as it undergoes review and changes. Outrageous! Put pressure on your congressman to stand up against this high-level censorship going on openly, right now, today. Once again, we are seeing “We have to pass it so we can know what’s in it.” No we don’t. They can’t get away with that – we saw what happened last time, and we won’t stand still for it any longer.

  6. John says:

    The free speech nazis in Europe have started the ball rolling in regard to making freedom of speech and or thought obsolete. This should be the biggest story in the media today.

    Another horrifying truth by Jon Rappoport. I used to debate with my husband about a lot of things Jon expresses… Since the 80’s at least.

    He was a staunch Republican & back then he couldn’t see a lot of what has now come to fruition. We were divorced but kept in close contact.

    In the nineties another debate about global and local issues ensued, and thus time I pressed too hard, hit a nerve & he refused contact for over a year. Haaaaaa… Back in solid beginning 2000 – the ‘cganges’ I had pressed about were becoming undeniably visual to him; the debates turned to earnest discussions of looming other possibilities and probabilities…

    He was a great guy – both of us suffered the Vietnam war – Bob died in July 2012 of pancreatic cancer ala agent Orange.

    One always misses a person like this – it never goes away.

    • arcadia11 says:

      i am sorry that he is not still here, e.
      i understand missing someone.

      much love –

    • Michael Burns says:

      It’s not good to miss someone so much…I understand that also.
      It the Vietnam bit that triggered it…oops sorry…not triggered..ah made me remember. I had a buddy who left America and came up here, he fought there, Cafferty on his good days he was crazier than a bag of hammers…but I loved like my brother. I miss him. He told me all kinds of truths. We smoked a lot of weed him and me and searched for the light together.
      It all comes out in the laundry.

    Both of those sites are anti globalist…. the deep state is disposing of them.

  13. roger says:

    Both of those sites are controlled opposition of the intelligence communities and deep state. The temporary ban is a ploy to draw attention TO THEM, not away from them. Don’t be so naive.

    • arcadia11 says:

      roger – that is what i wanted to say but hadn’t yet done so. thank you – especially since such a perspective is unpopular on this site.
      i see the whole thing including the predictable ‘reinstatement’ as staged.

      • John says:

        Oh yeah, people who expose the leftist globalist utopian agenda are just pawns in a complicated matrix. The globalists control everything, there is no hope. We must just all take that lovely “all knowing” attitude with our noses in the air and accept the fact that everything is rigged. Everything in this world: past, present and future is controlled by the deep state. The globalists own everybody in the media, every soul has been bought and each person/media outlet is just being used to further promulgate our enslavement.

        We are to just give up and throw our hands in the air and surrender. Trump and Obama are part of the same system/evil cabal playing us all for fools. Evil is relative and truth is subjective.

        Oh it very well maybe true what you speak of. But if you can not distinguish Trump from Obama by just using your own two eyes and ears, you both may be some kind of savant geniuses the rest of us only can hope to aspire to be one day.

        We shall see what Trump does. As for Alex and Jon, they are exposing these globalist pigs every day. And yes IMO the elite globalists have used a leftist utopian ideology to advance their agenda. It is your right to believe otherwise. It is your right to believe there is nobody or anything we can trust today.

        “The man who refuses to judge, who neither agrees nor disagrees, who declares that there are no absolutes and believes that he escapes responsibility, is the man responsible for all the blood that is now spilled in the world. Reality is an absolute, existence is an absolute, a speck of dust is an absolute and so is a human life. Whether you live or die is an absolute. Whether you have a piece of bread or not, is an absolute. Whether you eat your bread or see it vanish into a looter’s stomach, is an absolute.

        There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil. The man who is wrong still retains some respect for truth, if only by accepting the responsibility of choice. But the man in the middle is the knave who blanks out the truth in order to pretend that no choice or values exist, who is willing to sit out the course of any battle, willing to cash in on the blood of the innocent or to crawl on his belly to the guilty, who dispenses justice by condemning both the robber and the robbed to jail, who solves conflicts by ordering the thinker and the fool to meet each other halfway. In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit. In that transfusion of blood which drains the good to feed the evil, the compromise is the transmitting rubber tube.” Ayn Rand

        Oh Ayn Rand, she is just one of those crazies from the past, discount every word she says.

        IMO, humanity is at its greatest crossroad and by hook or crook, Trump is the guy who has turned the tide against the avalanche of globalism and the great evil it represents. Until he shows me otherwise, I will stand by and support him and take a stand for what I believe in. Is Trump perfect? No but is anybody perfect? At least he gave a speech I could relate to on a down to earth level.

        Again, you are entitled to your opinion. I will fight for your write to express it.

        • bdoyen says:

          Great response, John. Thank you.

        • Terri says:

          i agree John, cynicism is extremely harmful, it is poison, and does not create anything good. Society is so off balance we have a long way to go to get back even to a semblance of balance. What would the average person do if we went back to a constitutional republic tomorrow? no more welfare, no more bloated bureaucracy, no more blaming someone else for their lack of initiative; they wold explode. they would not be able to handle the amount of intelligence, commitment and action required to be real, not plastic.

          I think Trump is a genius in many ways and this is the beginning of throwing off evil. Only the individual can decide if they want to contribute positively to this or obstruct. There is a lot to creating your reality and thoughts are things, Bruce Lipton has some good information about this. We can only create something different and better if we stop being reactionary and instead act based on our inner knowing.

          • arcadia11 says:

            terri, are you truly meaning that those who are trump followers are acting based on inner knowing and those who do not follow trump are not acting based on inner knowing and in addition are obstructions? obstructions to what?

            “I think Trump is a genius in many ways and this is the beginning of throwing off evil. Only the individual can decide if they want to contribute positively to this or obstruct.”

            that’s a false choice, terri.

            any name can be substituted for “trump” in the above sentence and the same thing said about that person. many people felt that obama was what you think trump is. why did you not refrain from being ‘reactionary’ and support obama as so many others did? is the choice that terri makes the only one that can come from inner knowing?

            • Terri says:

              Arcadia, your premises are false. I never gave trump followers virtues, nor even alluded to a trump follower vs an obama follower.I never use the word follower unless i am talking about the clueless masses. I certainly follow no one, despite the people who raised me and society’s attempts at breaking me like a wild mustang. What John said below I will use as a partial response to your many questions, for I agree with what he says.
              You are reading into what i said. Every individual has a choice to aid and abet evil or fight against it.

              The fact that many people finally began to see the obamanation for what it is and chose Trump instead of an evil treasonous creature such as Hiillary was the beginning of turning the ship around. Not any name can be substituted for trump, certainly not obama, due to facts and evidence. Obama is a traitor and has committed more high crimes than i have time to list.

              The first time I saw Obama my inner knowing raised the alarm and since i have maintained my connection to All That Is so yes, I am more aware than most. Most turn off their awareness before they are 2. I fought every day to keep mine. Most people remain limited in the mind and are under mind control. if you do the research you will see mind control is every where, and the media is a major source.

              There is a great awakening occurring called the apocalypse, the lifting of the veil. The duality and divide of the orientation of the individual to s t s vs s t o (service to self vs service to others; for more info look up Ra and Seth) has become too wide to not notice. this divide is bigger than trump, he is just a messenger, and has chosen to serve, as norman vincent peale, his mentor taught him to the greater good. His energy has changed in the last year, if you have the ability to read energy. Some people are blind, does that mean those who see are better? no it just means they have an ability the other does not.

              Do you have any idea how many people have prayed and worked so hard energetically and physically for lifetimes and even given their lives for this higher cause and this time in this world. to trivialize it by attempting to make this black and white and mundane is missing the whole picture. Most of the common people are not capable of verbalizing their choices, they do not know how, but the people have finally spoken and risen above oppression and generations of mind control despite the odds. This is not about Trump. He has made his intentions clear, did you listen to his inaugural address? words have power and he chose his purposely.

              Those who are rioting in the streets and continue to practice black magic whether thru ritual or gossip are obstructionists and they serve evil. Anyone who supports communism and globalism supports evil. anyone who supports hillary and her club supports evil, for the facts and evidence are clear she is evil. anyone who laughs about getting a child rapist off is beyond evil.

              Context is important and i am not sure what else to say, or what it is you are trying to say or seek to understand by asking questions about one sentence i wrote within several paragraphs.

            • arcadia11 says:

              there is nothing to respond to here.

        • arcadia11 says:

          well…all of that is your opinion and that is okay for you.

          it would seem that you do not feel others should employ discernment. at least if that discernment is not aligned with your mindset or opinion. just a guess, but you seem to like trump, alex jones, mike adams, yes? and i do not. and perhaps others do not. but all of us must swallow our observations and feelings and go along with the program just as you are doing? because there is nothing better or because the faculty of discerning; discrimination; acuteness of judgment and understanding, to you, seems to mean going against what should be and is not good or useful at this point?

          not supporting these individuals does not necessarily equate to stupidity, ignorance, treason, not caring, or even being too fussy. why should that make you so angry?
          you like trump but not obama. someone who liked obama could say the same things to you that you are saying to me, and i think you would not like that. i like neither trump nor obama and i did not and will not support them.

          you state that no one is perfect. i agree. but it does not make sense to me, because no one is perfect, that i should “settle” for one of the two candidates whether or not i experience them both as, say, irreparably corrupt and more of the same. and should it?

          you have settled for that. i have not. for some reason that bothers you enough to attack my not being onboard with you. why?

          • John says:

            I believe western civilization is on life support, evil is at an all time high in society and the United States has become ancient Rome on steroids. We are at a point of no return. If we do not take a stand against evil, all will be lost soon.

            I was not a Trump supporter from the start but support him now for the simple reason he has the courage to call out the statist media and the corrupt system for what it actually is. The man has great courage and is not backing down to these arrogant leftist snowflake/useful idiots of the globalists. Trump is mocking the main stream media at every turn. I hope he continues to do it unmercifully. Does this mean Trump is a god and I should blindly follow him without holding him accountable? Of course not. But at least we have a puncher’s chance with him. He is not trying to destroy this country like his predecessor was trying to do. The arrogant Marxist ideologue Obama was and is the antithesis of Trump.

            The leftists and the globalists are one in the same, arrogant narcissists who believe in nothing but a fantasy world facilitated by their equally corrupted puppets like Obama and the MSM. If you do not see the difference between Barack Obama and Donald Trump, there is nothing more to discuss.

            It is literally like comparing a treasonous wannabe tyrant and Marxist despot with a business man who just simply wants to make his country a better place.

            If you did not see the eight years of corruption/treason which resulted in: the fast and furious scandal, the Benghazi debacle, the IRS preying on innocent tea party members, the spying on the AP writers and Fox’s James Rosen, the open borders, the destruction of the US dollar, ten trillion dollars in debt, the red line in Syria, originally supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the senseless overthrow of Gaddafi in Libya, the 150 billion dollars to the greatest sponsor of terror in Iran, the inaction regarding Russia’s invasion of Crimea, the ignoring of China’s bullying and expansion in the South China Sea, the lies of Obama care, the formation of ISIS, the degradation of the US military, the disrespect to Israel, the widening surveillance state, the devious Common Core education agenda and telling state governments, “do it the federal government’s way or no federal funding,” the closing down of American businesses based on cooked scientific models creating a cult called climate change, the lowest worker participation rate in over 40 years, the almost 50 million people receiving food stamps, and I am sure there is more evidence of corruption/treason I can not think of right now off the top of my head.

            If you are willing to walk by and not trust your own two eyes and ears about the treasonous actions of Barack Hussein Obama and his globalist masters I can not help you. Have you listened to Alex ? Have you ever listened to an Obama speech ? Tell me what has Obama said or done to ever make this country better? Compare this with Trump and tell me how you can not see the difference? When will Donald J. Trump even ever be given a chance to do his job by the deep state, the lunatic liberals and the media?

            When will people on the left be able to think with logic, see the insurmountable evidence of the destruction of Western Civilization and the United States unfolding right before their eyes? When will they be willing to take a stand that matters. Where is their moral compass?

            Obama has deepened the deep state in order to sabotage the Trump administration and finish off the United States, usher in the era of world government and make freedom of speech obsolete. It is your choice to ignore this, but I assure you that your choice to ignore this puts everybody at risk.

            This is the last roundup for the US Constitution and freedom. Those who choose to sit on the sidelines during such momentous times are just as complicit as the leftist tyrants they refuse to take a stand against. Yes standing in the middle and ignoring evil has pretty dire consequences. Enjoy the freedom you have to still make that choice but I ask you to think hard on what standing in the middle actually really means.

            • bdoyen says:

              John, another thoughtful, wise response to arcadia11 and Roger, who have not presented any persuasive logic to convince us of their position. There are many ways we allow ourselves to stop thinking; cynicism is one of them. Perhaps it hides a feeling of inadequacy, that the person is not capable of thinking things through for themselves. Or perhaps it is fear of what they might find. As John indicates, the stakes are enormous for all of us.

              John, do you have a blog? I’d love to read more of your thoughts.

    • Michael Burns says:

      That a big statement, I would care to say… can you prove any of that, I am willing to listen, or read as you lay it out. I mean don’t give me the long version…just a synopsis. Say 500 words, with backup…otherwise…

      Mike has been telling us about homeopathic and organic and hebs and spice remedy for a long time.

      Alex I never took seriously, until last year or so…have you seen the one he did with Joe Rogan. Rogan got him a bit buzzed and Alex never lost it. I think he is real passionate about what he talks about and what he supports.

    Jon, you were great as usual on coast to coast. Please consider creating a one page summary of the various “big health/big pharma” scams along with weblinks to sources so that it could be printed out and left at health food stores, etc. I think it might help wake up the low-info crowd.

  17. Tony says:

    More tales from the front line of social engineering (BBC):

    …………………………

    Filipino-American Celeste Noche, who is a food and travel photographer, shared her thoughts on the “exotified” depiction of certain recipes within the blogging and gourmet community on the podcast The Racist Sandwich.

    “I think microaggressions in social media are reflective of food media as a whole in that appropriation,” Noche tells BBC Trending, “These microaggressions can be as simple as a lack of research.”

    Whether it’s taking photos of dishes with chopsticks sticking straight up into rice or noodles (which can be seen as offensive in some Asian cultures)”, she says, “or dramatisation in the props used to style ethnic foods (why are Asian dishes so often styled on bamboo mats or banana leaves with chopsticks?)”.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-39142260

    …………………………

    Who gets to draw the line between social diversity and cultural appropriation? Between integration and assimilation? No one has a clue how this works in actuality, beyond the trite and vacuous pages of social policy papers and governmental task forces.

    So the orders from on high: “You will embrace more and more cultural amalgamation … just don’t fuck it up by pointing your chopsticks in the wrong direction”.

    Homogeneity is the new heterogeneity, unless it’s the opposite.

    Is it confusing enough yet?

    With over 800 million going without enough to eat, and a third of food produced never eaten, thank god we’re focussed on the real issues.

    In the words of the highly esteemed David St Hubbins in Spinal Tap: “It’s such a fine line between stupid and clever.”

  18. Wendy Wayman says:

    The quote about stinking badges comes from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre with Humphrey Bogart. Blazing Saddles was quoting from that famous old Western.
