Blagojevich trial, Google manipulation, 1984, Search engine hiding

“To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is
free, when men are different from one another and do not
live alone–to a time when truth exists and what is done
cannot be undone:

From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude,
from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublethink–
greetings!”…George Orwell, “1984”

 

1984 has arrived

 
Those of you following this blog are aware of my repeated references to George Orwell’s novel, “1984.” We have watched our world transform even deeper into the doctrine and thought control prophesied by Orwell. Long time followers of this blog also know that I refrain from knee jerk reactions and endeavor to present documented facts. That is why I waited several days to react to the apparent manipulation of my articles about the Rod Blagojevich trial.
Altering of information on the internet is not new. We watched in amazement early in 2008 when information was being scrubbed or altered. Orchestrated efforts from the Obama camp, the Obama thugs shut down blogs and websites such as Larry Sinclair’s. There have been ongoing reports of search engine manipulation. Even a casual observer could see we were entering the world of “1984.”

“If the party could thrust its hand into the past and say
of this and that event, it never happened–that, surely,
was more terrifying than mere torture and death.”…George Orwell, “1984”

 
Reports of Obama being associated with multiple social security numbers in multiple geoprahic locations have surfaced for well over a year. Private investigators have been employed to do research and recently these reports were gaining prominence in the search engines. World Net Daily presented an article on May 12, 2010 that Questions Google hiding these articles.
“Google hides Obama’s Social Security Number story
Searches for WND report diverted to Kagan, oil, Tampa stories”
“Internet giant Google today was hushing up the new dispute over President Obama’s strange Social Security number by diverting searches for news reports on the issue to unrelated stories about Elena Kagan, oil, Tampa and the Federal Reserve.
The actual story, posted on WND.com, explained how two private investigators – working independently – are asking why Obama is using a Social Security number set aside for applicants in Connecticut while there is no record he ever had a mailing address in the state.
Under a Google news search for “President Obama Social Security number,” the top four results all quoted, “By Jerome R. Corsi Two private investigators working independently are asking why President Obama is using a Social Security number set aside for applicants…”
Is Google ‘evil’? Read the arguments in Joseph Farah’s “Stop the Presses!”
However, the first link is to Politico’s story about “Gay rights central to Elena Kagan fight,” the second links to Politico’s “Senate clears measure to audit Federal Reserve” story, the third links to a Politico story about the GOP plans for a convention in Tampa in 2012, and the last links to a Politico story about “Oil executives play pass the buck.”
Google spokesman Jake Hubert told WND that it appeared to be a “bug in the snippets.”
He said the company was looking into it.”

“The past, he reflected, had not merely been altered, it had
actually been destroyed. For how could you establish, even
the most obvious fact when there existed no record outside
your own memory?”…George Orwell, “1984”

I am constantly doing internet searches to keep up with news, do research, to make certain my stories are showing up and to see how they rank. Recently I have been following more closely my articles on the Rod Blagojevich trial. My motivation has been high.
 

Reported here March 9, 2010.
“We all expected the biased, idiot MSM to follow along like sheep and cover the tapes and senate seat story. When Bill O’Reilly interviwed Rod Blagojevich a few weeks ago and not only did not ask questions about the other charges, but set up the interview to focus only on the selling of the senate seat, that was the final straw for me.”
“This is far bigger than Watergate.
We have a president elect, governor, US dept of Justice, complicit MSM and long time, widespread crime and corruption in Chicago and IL.”

Because of my disgust about the Blagojevich trial story being misrepresented and downplayed by Blogojevich in harmony with our entertainment based media and those purporting to report the news, I have cranked out a series of articles about the real story, the numerous indictment counts, the long time involvement in corruption in Chicago and Illinois and especially the strong ties to Tony Rezko, Stuart Levine and yes, Obama, as well as a host of others. These articles ranked high on Google using basic search terms such as “Blagojevich trial May 2010.”
Much to my surprise, on May 10, 2010, the search “Blagojevich trial” yielded a ranking of # 3 on Google. A decent ranking on Google was expected, and I believe warranted, due to the extensive array of Balgojevich articles going back to April of 2008, combined with the activity level of the blog. I did not expect that to last. I also did not expect the more explicit searches to not find my article.
At 9:52 PM on May 10, 2010, Larry Sinclair called about another subject. We talked about a variety of things and I mentioned that I had a gut feeling that something about Obama was about to break. Two other things were mentioned during the conversation. His phone conversations being monitored and I mentioned the Google ranking. Within approximately 12 hours of this conversation, the morning of May 11, 2010, I noticed the big change in ranking of my recent Blagojevich trial articles. They were, in fact, fundamentally being hidden by Google. They weren’t just nudged down in the ranking. I had to get very explicit and even add citizenwells to the end to find some of them.
I commented on this fact on the blog and many regular commenters did searches. The hiding did not happen across the internet. Dogpile, which gathers searches across multiple search engines, still reflected a high ranking for the Blagojevich trial articles as did Yahoo and others such as Bing. I let the dust settle and kept monitoring Google. As of this morning, Google is still “hiding” the more recent articles. The ones that are particulary damning for Blagojevich, Obama and the mainstream media.

A search on Dogpile, approximately 14 hours ago yielded the following:

First I will state, this search exceeded my expections and would not be expected to repeat. This morning’s search was more normal. What is important from an analysis of the above is the fact that Bing found the May 11, 2010 article and not Google. Google only presented the older articles. The latest articles from Google were the Rezkorama link to the May 12, 2010 article and the Free Republic link to the April 5, 2010 CW article.
Something has changed at Google.The timing is highly suspicious. Do I believe that the Obama thugs are involved? Absolutely.
Will the Obama thugs ultimately win? No!
Help spread the word. Google will ultimately be held accountable. Ask those in your sphere of influence to read the Blagojevich Indictment and read articles here and elesewhere that reveal the truth. Ask other website owners to do the same. Just as the main character in “1984,” Winston, began sharing his thoughts with those around him, we must resort to one on one human contact to counteract the manipulation of information in our current Orwellian society.

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984”

Googles’  immediate response was proper. “Blagojevich trial, Google manipulation” is fairly specific and should show my article. My recent articles, up to several days ago, were presented in this “normal” fashion. If Google has a satisfactory answer, I will post it.

This blog has presented numerous articles comparing the Obama camp and Obama Administration to the Orwellian world of “1984” and Nazi Germany. The attacks on people and information coming from the Obama camp have incessantly spewed forth against anyone questioning Obama. That is bad enough. However, we have had idiot, biased judges and other government officials ignorantly referring to court cases and using the terms citizen and natural born citizen interchangeably.
Yesterday, a commenter on this blog mentioned the attempt from an Obama blogger to create a court case in Virginia, allegedly dismissed against Obama. Here is the article from November 19, 2008.

“Another Obama Camp scam?
When I first read about the Virginia lawsuit claiming Obama is ineligible and the subsequent ruling by the judge, it did not smell right. I have reread the exerpts placed on the internet and after much thought and deciding that I had to read the Petition and the judges ruling, I searched for a record of the filing and hearing on the official Virginia Courts website. I did extensive searching by names and dates and
found nothing. After much searching, I called the clerk of court’s office. I was told that several people had called inquiring about the case and they could find no record of any case.”

“Internet accounts of alleged Petition and judge ruling

So, who is Wild Bill?

“Great News
written by Wild Bill, October 22, 2008

The Virginia lawsuit (actually a Petition for Writ of Mandamus) was filed today. Ironically, we almost missed filing and serving due to the thousands of people downtown today to see Obama speak. In even better news, the Honorable Walter W. Stout III, the chief judge, granted our motion for an emergency hearing and set a briefing schedule. We were required to serve the Board of Elections a copy of the schedule today (which we did). We must file our brief and all supporting evidence on Friday. The Board of Elections has until the 28th to file a response.

We may file a reply on the 29th and the hearing will be held on the 30th at 1:30p.m.
We did send copies of the suit and orders to the local media, but unlike some people, we are more interested in pursuing the legal battle, not whoring ourselves out to the media. For that same reason we are not setting up a website or soliciting donations.
We will let you know how things progress.””

“If this is not another attempt by the Obama camp to shore up credibility and discredit those such as Philip J Berg, please respond with proof to the contrary.
Also, anyone affiliated with Circuit Court Judge Walter W. Stout III in Richmond Virginia, we would love to get a response from you.

“Message:
RE: WILD BILL CASE

I too believe that this case is a “fake case” based on the following:

1. I conducted multiple searches for the case at http://wasdmz2.courts.state.va.us/CJISWeb/circuit.html — Using a variety of names, including Board of Elections, Elections, Election, etc. — and no case was reported.

2. I contacted Judge Stout’s Office (the judge in the case, per Wild Bill. (Info at http://www.courts.state.va.us/courts/circuit/Richmond/home.html). The clerk there could find no record of the case in the docket.

3. I contacted two local Richmond newspapers, with all the info available. There was no subsequent report on the case. Given that at least local news has reported on all similar cases, I find it very hard to believe that local Richmond news would not report on such a substantial opinion.”

“He jests at scars, that never felt a wound.”…Shakespeare

 

Why dost David Emery of About.com (aka NY Times) jest?

“‘Birther’ Wackiness Continues with Release of Obama’s ‘Kenyan Birth Certificate'”

William Shakespeare, once again, waxes pertinent.

“Horatio:
He waxes desperate with imagination.

Marcellus:
Let’s follow. ‘Tis not fit thus to obey him.

Horatio:
Have after. To what issue will this come?

Marcellus:
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.”…Shakespeare, Hamlet Act 1, scene 4

 

I perform a great many internet searches and today, quite by accident, or perchance divine inspiration, was confronted with an article by David Emery dated August 3, 2009  on About.com.

“‘Birther’ Wackiness Continues with Release of Obama’s ‘Kenyan Birth Certificate'”

“One of the myriad alternative-reality scenarios promulgated by “birthers” — the folks who maintain that Barack Obama’s presidency is illegitmate because, supposedly, he has never released a valid birth certificate or proven he’s a natural-born citizen — is that he was actually born in Kenya.

The first and only “evidence” proffered to support that theory surfaced just yesterday in the form of a document allegedly proving that Obama was, in fact, born at Coast General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya in 1961.”

The word document, highlighted above, links to a Citizen Wells article with news of an alleged Kenyan birth certificate.

The article goes on to state:

“it only took about a nanosecond for reality-based debunkers to prove the “Kenyan birth certificate” a fake”

Reality based?

The article then states:

“The debacle shines a light on two fatal flaws of the birther movement: one, their blatantly inconsistent and prejudicial standards of evidence — i.e., they’re perfectly willing to accept (and circulate) unsourced photographs of an unvetted document as “proof” of foreign birth, while dismissing out of hand a state-issued, state-validated U.S. birth certificate; and two, what the foregoing reveals about their true motives — i.e, despite their protestations, they have no interest whatsoever in truth, accuracy, or “protecting” the U.S. Constitution, but are bent, rather, on delegitimizing Obama’s presidency at any cost and by any means possible.”

http://urbanlegends.about.com/b/2009/08/03/birther-wackiness-continues-with-release-of-obamas-kenyan-birth-certificate.htm

I am going to email David Emery and ask what his motivation was for producing this inaccurate and insulting article.

One of the first clues for his motivation is this fact from the bottom of the website:

About.com, a part of The New York Times Company.

You remember the NY Times. They are the ones who withheld the important ACORN story until after the 2008 election.

Mr. Emery states “their blatantly inconsistent and prejudicial standards of evidence” when he hasn’t a clue about what he is talking about.

He goes on to state “while dismissing out of hand a state-issued, state-validated U.S. birth certificate.”

He ends with “but are bent, rather, on delegitimizing Obama’s presidency at any cost and by any means possible.”

David Emery, even Lou Dobbs while at CNN, of all places, questioned Obama’s birth certificate. He also was paying attention when he stated that the alleged COLB was a piece of paper that referred to another piece of paper.

Mr. Emery, I am well educated with a strong background. I do not refer to myself as a birther. I am an American, natural born citizen, who believes that the US Constitution is the supreme law of the land. I also keep things simple. Can you answer this simple question?

Why has Obama employed a legion of private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?

Glenn Beck, Citizen Wells red phone challenge, Obama college records, Obama attorneys, Occidental records, Columbia records, Harvard records, Beck insults Americans Military officers US Constitution, Glenn Beck call me on the phone

Why has Obama employed a legion of private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

 

Glenn Beck, et al, the above question is simple to answer, simple enough for a fifth grader. Lou Dobbs, while still at CNN, asked another simple question. Why doesn’t Obama just provide a legitimate birth certificate. However, Glenn Beck, the eligibility issues surrounding Obama appear to be too complex (or controversial) for you. You know, messy stuff like natural born citizen and the US Constitution. So I have decided to just focus on something real simple for you, something you can get your head around. Obama’s college records. That’s not too complex or controversial is it?

Glenn, perhaps even you at one time or another had to prove you attended a school.

Glenn Beck, you inspired me with the red phone you set up to receive calls from the Obama Administration. So I have dedicated a phone to receive calls from you. If anything I write or put in a video is incorrect, please call me anytime and let me know. The follow video, let’s call it a trailer for upcoming shows, presents some information regarding efforts to obtain Obama’s college records. I will be curious to know if you consider the three men referred to in the video as right wing idiots.  One of them is a retired military officer. You have insulted plenty of them in the past, so why not. Heck, you will probably call me an idiot. However, I must warn you, I fight back. I will not back down.

“Unlike Lou Dobbs, who on CNN of all places, asked the basic journalistic question,
why doesn’t Obama present a legitimate birth certificate, Glenn Beck, on his radio
and Fox TV show has insulted millions of concerned Americans. Many of these Americans
are current and retired military and quite a few high ranking officers. Beck often talks
out of one side of his mouth about upholding the US Constitution, while at the same time
insulting Americans exercising their First Amendment rights.

Three concerned Americans, Philip J Berg, a lifelong Democrat, former ambassador Dr. Alan Keyes
and Charles F Kerchner, USNR Commander, all requested Obama’s college records using legal
channels and were opposed by Obama attorneys.

Glenn Beck, if you have any questions or corrections to make about this video, you can call
me on the dedicated phone (Mickey Mouse red phone holding the cell phone).”

Charles Krauthammer, What Scott Brown’s win means for the Democrats, January 22, 2010, Obama ABC interview, Democrats delusional, Obama and Democrats blame Bush, Obama blames insurance companies

From the Washington Post, January 22, 2010, Charles Krauthammer.

“What Scott Brown’s win means for the Democrats”

“On Jan. 14, five days before the Massachusetts special election, President Obama was in full bring-it-on mode as he rallied House Democrats behind his health-care reform. “If Republicans want to campaign against what we’ve done by standing up for the status quo and for insurance companies over American families and businesses, that is a fight I want to have.”
The bravado lasted three days. When Obama campaigned in Boston on Jan. 17 for Obamacare supporter Martha Coakley, not once did he mention the health-care bill. When your candidate is sinking, you don’t throw her a millstone.

After Coakley’s defeat, Obama pretended that the real cause was a generalized anger and frustration “not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years.”

Let’s get this straight: The antipathy to George W. Bush is so enduring and powerful that . . . it just elected a Republican senator in Massachusetts? Why, the man is omnipotent.

And the Democrats are delusional: Scott Brown won by running against Obama, not Bush. He won by brilliantly nationalizing the race, running hard against the Obama agenda, most notably Obamacare. Killing it was his No. 1 campaign promise.

Bull’s-eye. An astonishing 56 percent of Massachusetts voters, according to a Rasmussen poll, called health care their top issue. In a Fabrizio, McLaughlin & Associates poll, 78 percent of Brown voters said their vote was intended to stop Obamacare. Only a quarter of all voters in the Rasmussen poll cited the economy as their top issue, nicely refuting the Democratic view that Massachusetts was just the usual anti-incumbent resentment you expect in bad economic times.”

“The reason both wings of American liberalism — congressional and mainstream media — were so surprised at the force of anti-Democratic sentiment is that they’d spent Obama’s first year either ignoring or disdaining the clear early signs of resistance: the tea-party movement of the spring and the town-hall meetings of the summer. With characteristic condescension, they contemptuously dismissed the protests as the mere excrescences of a redneck, retrograde, probably racist rabble.”

“Democrats must so rationalize, otherwise they must take democracy seriously, and ask themselves: If the people really don’t want it, could they possibly have a point?

“If you lose Massachusetts and that’s not a wake-up call,” said moderate — and sentient — Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh of Indiana, “there’s no hope of waking up.””

Martha Coakley Takes Money From Health Insurance Lobbyists, MA Republican Party ad video, Coakley ties to drug companies, Coakley fundraiser Washington DC, Health care lobbyists, Martha Coakley smear campaign, Health Care Bill

The MA Republican Party has a new video out accusing Martha Coakley of taking money from health insurance lobbyists.

“Martha Coakley says she holds health insurers accountable, then one day later, takes money from the very same health insurance lobbyists at a Washington fundraiser.”

Was this a fair portrayal of Coakley’s ties to lobbyists and drug companies?

You decide.

From the Washington Examiner, January 8, 2010.

“Coakley in trouble? Pharma and HMO lobbyists to the rescue”

“With Democrat Martha Coakley in trouble in the Massachusetts special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s seat, Democrats could lose vote No. 60 for President Obama’s health-care bill. In response, an army of lobbyists for drug companies, health insurance companies, and hospitals has teamed up to throw a high-dollar Capitol Hill fundraiser for Coakley next Tuesday night. The invitation is here.

Of the 22 names on the host committee–meaning they raised $10,000 or more for Coakley–17 are federally registered lobbyists, 15 of whom have health-care clients. Of the other five hosts, one is married to a lobbyist, one was a lobbyist in Pennsylvania, another is a lawyer at a lobbying firm, and another is a corporate CEO. Oh, and of course, there’s also the political action commitee for Boston Scientific Corporation.

All the leading drug companies have lobbyists on Coakley’s host committee: Pfizer, Merck, Amgen, Sanofi-Aventis, Eli Lilly, Novartis, Astra-Zeneca, and more. On the insurance side of things, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Cigna, Humana, HealthSouth, and United Health all are represented on the host committee.”

“Here are some of Coakley fundraiser hosts with some of their current health care clients:

Thomas Boggs, Patton Boggs: Bristol-Myers Squibb
Chuck Brain, Capitol Hill Strategies: Amgen, BIO, Merck, PhRMA
Susan Brophy, Glover Park Group: Blue Cross, Pfizer
Steven Champlin, Duberstein Group: AHIP, Novartis, Sanofi-Aventis
Licy Do Canto, Raben Group: Amgen

“Fox News Reports On Martha Coakley’s “Controversial” DC Fundraiser With Health Care Lobbyists”

“It won’t be the first time but Martha Coakley smeared Scott Brown tonight outside of her big Washington DC lobbyist fundraiser.

Martha Coakley is a smear merchant.
She already tried to tie Republican Scott Brown to Rush Limbaugh even though the two have never met.

Now tonight Martha Coakley tried to tie Scott Brown to “extreme right groups” who she says are pouring money into Massachusetts. She says this despite the fact that Brown raised over $1.3 million, mostly in small donations, in an online money bomb yesterday. And, she had the gall to say this outside of her Washington DC lobbyist fundraiser where 22 big-time lobbyists from drug, health care and insurance companies met tonight to help bail her campaign out.

Brian Maloney has more on Coakley’s big money fundraiser tonight.

As if Martha Coakleys support from the corrupt establishment wasnt already clear enough, now comes word that a coalition of sleazebag industry lobbyists have teamed up with Bay State Democrats for an eleventh-hour bailout of her faltering campaign.

Many of those involved in this hastily-organized rescue attempt have no Bay State ties, their only allegiance is to piggish K Street – Beltway lobbying firms.”

Glenn Beck, Insults Americans, Birthers, Beck is uninformed, Glenn Beck can you hear us?, Listen and apologize or else, Glenn Beck insults on video

Apparently Glenn Beck has not apologized for being a hypocrite and a jerk. On Monday, January 4, 2010, on Glenn Beck’s radio show, Beck who is very much uninformed on the subject of Obama’s eligibility, insulted millions of hard working, concerned, patriotic Americans.

While I might agree with Beck on prioritizing the Obama eligibility issue, I had the good sense and respect for others to stay out of their way. It appears that Beck has not learned that lesson. It also appears, as my mom used to say that “He has gotten too big for his britches.”

Here is what is going to happen. Anybody can make a mistake. So I am willing to give Glenn Beck a chance to apologize, pay attention and either cover the story properly or keep his damn mouth shut.

I will attempt once again to contact him tomorrow.

If Beck has not responded, I will query the good people of this blog and others to possibly boycott Glen Beck’s shows.

What Beck has done is inexcusable. I listened to most of his Fox TV show today, January 7, 2010. After Beck had made the insults and today violated almost every principle he discussed today, I was ready to let him have it. I despise a hypocrite.

Glenn Beck, are you paying attention?

Glenn Beck, I challenge you, one on one, use your “arguments” to insult me.
