"Black Krishna" ... missing from Google... missing from SoundClick... MIA?



I don't know what the hell is happening, so I'll speculate privately.

(...speculate... mutter... grumble... scratch... belch...)

But, I do know what is not happening, and that is stuff is not working right.

(Or something like that.)

Anyway, I hope I didn't piss anyone off.

(Or at least not someone who wants to do anything about it and can.)

But I may have.

(It's just my line of work.)

So, a summary of potential melodramatic evaporation into the cyber-ether:

1) I used to Google "black krishna" and get several pages from my blog popping up. Now there are zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Bupkiss. At least up to page 25 and result number 250. (Some other sites where I've posted are listed, and my SoundClick site is the first two listings, so that's cool...)

There used to be blog-pages in the Google Top 10 results, and when I do the same using Yahoo's search engine, my blog (this blog) is the 2nd and 3rd listing. (I lost first to a "black - Krishna T-shirt"... the horror... the horror...)

Lycos: 4th. Alta Vista: 7th, 8th, and 9th.

So, what gives?

For something similar that happened to another dude and his email correspondence with Google's Director, Corporate Communications, you can check:

01Jun01 - Google removes from its listings


I haven't contacted Johnny or Jackie Google yet, I'm going to give it a minute and see if it self-corrects.

I also have an error message everytime I publish my blog now that says:

006 Please contact Blogger

So, who knows?

I may tell you, I may not, I'll have to see if I'm able...

2) At first my SoundClick site wasn't accessable as "the operation timed out", while the rest was. Now the whole thing is down or I can't get to it, I'll have to see what's what at some point. They get knocked-down, but they get up again, and you're never gonna keep them down... I'm just not sure what's happening.

So, there you have it.

Maybe they're out to get me; maybe I'm a paranoid pussy, who knows?

No, seriously: who knows?

Peace by peace...

P.S. When I wrote my review of 9/11: The Road to Tyranny, I gave props to the nearly 10,000 who downloaded it so far.

Now 10,000 have, and that's awesome.

I'm not taking any credit, I just think people are sick of the B.S. that passes for mainstream news these days and looking for a bit more "substance" (you damn right I said it) in the form of history, context, analysis, evidence, documentation, and ultimately truth delivered with a side of manic pizzazz. Alex has a bunch of fans already, and some very credible guests, experts and witnesses on his show who can't get "their" story out to the masses since the mainstream media won't touch it.

It's an interesting milestone, we shall see how far this goes...

I also got punk'd by the next reviewer.


People just don't understand what I'm trying to do.

(His punkin' was piss-poor anyway, I'm not surprised, just mildly annoyed at: "Puny humans! Hulk smash!!!")

In one of a tonne of basic explanations you'll (hopefully) hear:

Creativity = Offense.

Marketing = Defense.

So, "noted conspiracy theorist" Alex Jones who's dismissed by many as a "noted conspiracy theorist", has made a hell of a film. Today, with even the best investigative journalists like Seymour Hersh and Greg Palast consistently marginalized, discredited, and 6 months later vindicated, this is an awesome source of information and context for interpreting the mainstream media. The lazy and embedded are closing ranks, and want us to close our eyes so we don't see they're lazy and embedded.

Simply put: the fact that no mainstream news will even touch the "fact" that Al-Qaeda was created by the CIA and U.S. Military is a crime against sanity - one among thousands committed on a daily basis. Instances of inexplicable terror are left unexplained save for official rhetoric, and destroying intelligent debate. If this guy is a "conspiracy theorist", then great: the neo-cons are running "the most secretive administration in history", and screwing up so badly it almost seems on purpose. So what the hell are they doing? Who's seriously asking for accountability? Who's showing us what the (unofficial) possibilities are?

The film is already done: Creativity.

How do you convince people to watch it? Marketing.

Since Alex put in all the work cutting and pasting from hundreds of hours of mainstream media footage that contradict each other, and thousands of documents that do the same, he's already ran the ball into the end zone with a spectacular series of broken illogical tackles. Offense.

Now skeptics have the ball, and are marching towards the idea of watching the film with their TV remote control firmly cradled against their rib-cage and a comfy couch in the end-zone. How do we get them to stop advancing up the field of mediocrity and stick around their semi-comfy computer chair long enough to absorb the mystery of the madness? Defense.

Theocratic Oath: I don't think it's wise to suggest someone has to "buy-in" 100% to something they are highly skeptical about right away. That's crazy talk, and makes the people that people want to call crazy sound crazy. I really think a better - or at the very least parallel approach, is to suggest that they keep an open mind and take from it what they will. I'll even admit to my own cynicism because: a) I am a bit cynical; and b) it's seen as a sign of intelligence and lack of gullibility. This also brings me to a "peer" level with skeptics (I was blinded by my own willfully arrogant ignorance at one point) in understanding their concerns, and suggesting that despite them it's a worthwhile journey.

So to all the lunatics, sayeth I: "Rant, rave, rave against the dying of the light!"

That's cool.

We're on the same team, so just let me do my thing, aiight?

Here, I'll even give you some BKB bloggin' shine... :)

Watch the film and review the facts for yourself.

The wealth of references to the New World Order are too numerous to name here, but here's a start...

"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order. " --David Rockefeller

"Oil is much too important a commodity to be left in the hands of the Arabs." --Henry Kissinger

We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent." Jewish Banker Paul Warburg, February 17, 1950, as he testified before the U.S. Senate

All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level, that even the most stupid of those toward whom it is directed will understand it... Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise. - Adolf Hitler

"I want to tell you something very clear, don't worry about American pressure on Israel, we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it."
Ariel Sharon to Shimon Peres, October 3rd, 2001, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio

"No free man shall ever be de-barred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
Thomas Jefferson

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
Thomas Jefferson

"The great masses of people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one. Especially if it is repeated over and over."
-- Adolph Hitler

If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator.
-- President G. W. Bush

"I never would have agreed to the formulation of the Central Intelligence Agency back in '47, if I had known it would become the American Gestapo. "
-- Harry S Truman (1961)

"The interests behind the Bush Administration, such as the CFR, The Trilateral Commission - founded by Brzezinski for David Rockefeller - and the Bilderberger Group, have prepared for and are now moving to implement open world dictatorship within the next five years. They are not fighting against terrorists. They are fighting against citizens." - Dr. Johannes B. Koeppl, Ph.D., former German defense ministry official and advisor to former NATO Secretary General Manfred Werne

"The United States is not nearly so concerned that its acts be kept secret from its intended victims as it is that the American people not know of them." –U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark

"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order. " -David Rockefeller

"If the New World Order agenda is not realized by the terrorist attacks on America and if American's don't agree to give up their weapons and relinquish their sovereignty to the New World Order, the next attack will be the use of chemical, biological and/or atomic warfare against the American people. The architects of the New World Order will not hesitate to use as a last resort an atomic or hydrogen bomb in a major American city." -Reference Op Ed page of the New York Times 9/24/01

"Once a government resorts to terror against its own population to get what it wants, it must keep using terror against its own population to get what it wants. A government that terrorizes its own people can never stop. If such a government ever lets the fear subside and rational thought return to the populace, that government is finished." -Michael Rivero

"Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government." -- Henry Kissinger speaking at Evian, France, May 21, 1992 Bilderburgers meeting. Unbeknownst to Kissinger, his speech was taped by a Swiss delegate to the meeting

"We need a common enemy to unite us." - Condoleeza Rice, March 2000
