Two websites openly critical of the Obama administration are being censored.
The first is the news website Infowars.com; the second is the site of Dr. Orly Taitz, the attorney who has filed one lawsuit after another on Obama’s birth certificate, his strange Connecticut-issued Social Security number, and other suspect documents.
U.S. military service members are denied access to certain Internet sites deemed by the federal government to be objectionable because the site advocates violence, hate, or racism.
Thursday, Infowars.com discovered that the Navy’s internal intranet system, Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI), is blocking more than 707,000 servicemembers worldwide from accessing Infowars although the website neither advocates violence, hate, nor racism.
Infowars received a document (see below) entitled “Access Denied by NETWARCOM Policy,” from a servicemember which shows that the NMCI is blocking http://www.infowars.com in order to “safeguard the security posture and/or to maintain the operational integrity of the NMCI.” The block or censorship has the approval of the Naval Network Warfare Command Battle Watch Captain.
Infowars also received an email from another active duty member of the U.S. Military confirming the block:
“Hello, I visit infowars every day @ home and at work to keep up to date with latest news that I cannot find in the mainstream media. I am active duty military and my fellow comrades and I follow infowars and which usually ends up in discussion. Just recently my comrades and I have noticed the Infowars website has now been blocked on all our computers. I believe its another attempt for the govt to censor out the truth. I feel this story should be shared and at least infowars should be notified. As for my comrades and I we feel like its another attempt to take our freedoms which we fight for. Thank you for everything you do. Let the truth be told and never quit. If there is anything we can do please let us know.”
Nor is the Navy intranet’s censorship of Infowars unusual. Watson writes that Infowars routinely receives emails from users who are unable to access the website because it has been blocked by filters used by government facilities, transport hubs, large corporations and other institutions.
This site is temporarily unavailable.
In an email, Dr. Taitz writes: “My website is down, Obots hacked into it and [my server] network solutions suspended the service. they demand I delete all visitor traffic stats and the whole blog in order to reinstate the account, which is insane. I might need to go to another service. Please, let me know, if any of you can help.”
