The Federalist Shadowbanned by Google, Part II

Google Censorship
"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Lord Acton

  • UPDATE  -  Nothing has changed since about a month ago when my page views went from 3,000 to 5,000 a day down to a handful of visits daily. I have no doubt that in any given Google search my stories will appear somewhere around page 18,753.
  • We badly need a modern Theodore Roosevelt to break up the Internet monopolies.

By Gary;

We see the endless censorship stories on the Internet Free Press. . . . The stories are on the Internet, not on the corporate controlled TV or print media.

The Right and now even the Left is getting censored by Google, YouTube, Facebook and more.  And naturally the "Conservative" GOP is silent as free speech is strangled.

Now it looks like the Google Censors are working their way down the food chain to hobby Blogs like mine:  The Federalist.

I started this little Hobby Blog back in 2011 to talk about freedom and Constitutional Federalism in a world that increasingly worships Big Brother. Well I must have hit a nerve. We shot past 4 million page view this year often hitting 3,000 to 5,000 pages viewed daily. In August, 2017 we peaked with 173,345 views in just one month.

It looks like my Blog and others have finally attracted the attention of the Internet Oligarchs.

Overnight page views of my Blog have fallen like a rock.  Fallen to ultra low levels I have not seen in years.

With over 8,100 stories publish The Federalist has gained a minor following. But now I suspect Google links to our stories have been shoved down to around page 19,567 of any given Google search. 

Shadowbanning they call it.  They are not censoring Conservative sites.  Google. Facebook etc. just make sure that no one can ever find us.

Both Democrat and Republican political hacks and their lap dog media are silent.

One wonders in the dead of night if there is anyone left out there who cares.  Is the Republic dead?  Is all we are seeing is the twitching of a still warm corpse?  

I hope not, but I fear the worst.
