If 2016 was the ‘Year of the Snowflake’, then going on what has already been witnessed, 2017 may well turn out to be the ‘Year of the ‘Chilling Effect’.
The established order, and their partners-in-crime the mass media have, since the advent of the internet, been steadily losing the stranglehold they previously enjoyed over what people were allowed to read, see on the television and ultimately believe what was really going on in the world.
And that situation, as you can imagine, cannot, and will not be allowed to continue for much longer.
Putting aside the various elected governments, who are nothing more than the public face of the established order and their various agencies, the mass media are without doubt, the single most powerful agents of change there are, and have been hemorrhaging both their revenue and their audience to any number of the alternative online news outlets and social media feeds that are out there.
The mass media and the establishment are virtually indistinguishable in their objectives to control what people see, what they eat, what they wear, what is healthy, what is harmful and everything else in between – and only a fool would think otherwise as the evidence of this can be seen everywhere in modern society.
From what I have been seeing for myself, and what increasing numbers of concerned readers have been contacting me about, the fightback by the establishment against those who are publishing online what is really going on, has now reached a stage which is becoming not only obvious, but impossible to ignore.
The most noticeable effect of this fightback, is the number of alternative (to the establishment narrative) websites, social media and Youtube accounts that have been suspended or disappeared altogether recently, and increasing numbers of previously popular and informative articles and websites are being ‘de-listed’ from the largest search engines, effectively making them difficult to find.
I have been aware for a while that a number of articles that have been previously published on the Outlaw, despite their daily views increasing, have now disappeared from Google searches altogether, and that can also be said of other similar websites, who’s owners have contacted me over the same issue.
The agents of the establishment who operate within the mass media are easy to identify and make no attempt to disguise where their real allegiences lie, and can for the purpose of this article, be dismissed, as their objectives are clear to anyone with a functioning brain – the biggest threat that purveyors of the truth are facing, are those that the title of this post refer to.
‘Les Gardiens Des Portes’ (The Guardians of the Gates), or the establishment ‘Gatekeepers’ are by far among the most prolific, insidious, duplicitous and ultimately dangerous entities that can be encountered online ….
The main problem with Gatekeepers is that they are not easily identifiable, and operate not only within the mass media, but also within the so-called ‘Alternative Media’, on all social media platforms, on most of the ‘Truther’ forums and message boards, and unsurprisingly, have also commanded the biggest online audiences over the last few years.
You only have to look at how mainly fictious events like ‘Pizzagate‘ for example, have managed to gain so much traction online over the last few months, sending ‘Truthers’ scurrying all over the place rabidly chasing down any ‘evidence’ to support some of the most outlandish claims ever published, while effectively clogging up news feeds and burying any credible information that may have emerged during that time.
There is a purpose to this, and it is the Gatekeepers main role to ensure that ‘Fake News’ is always foremost in peoples minds, in order to negate and distract from the truth, and to generally confuse and bamboozle.
For those of you who are still able to see past the white noise and bullshit, the Gatekeepers secondary role is to bring about a ‘Chilling Effect’ on whistleblowers and the truth tellers by using methods that are becoming more and more commonplace, as many of the recipients can and will testify to.
One method used is to utilise UK Harassment and Malicious Communication laws to silence people, by reporting blog articles and/or the comments, Forum/Messageboard posts, Tweets, and Facebook posts to the police to try and establish a ‘course of conduct’ against anyone who has highlighted their activities.
This has been shown to be a fairly common tactic, as I am aware of at least eight instances where people who have been clearly harassed, threatened, cyber-stalked and bullied online for many months and even years by Gatekeepers and their followers, have found themselves on the wrong side of the law for simply trying to highlight what has happened to them.
I am also aware of a number of court cases that are scheduled to be heard in 2017, which if they go according to plan, will bring about legislation to further restrict free and independent speech on the internet ….
