WND.com is now in its third year operating in defiance of Google’s harsh, new, draconian rules imposed upon one of the oldest surviving independent journalism websites in history – older that Google itself.
One day, the tech company just announced that we would have to endure something no other news site had been forced to endure – living without the use of Google’s near-monopoly advertising system, virtually ending WND’s ad revenue. In other words, they tried to force us out of business. But we didn’t go that easily. Largely, we had trained ourselves over years to prepare for such things by relying on America’s generosity to sustain us. Here’s what Google told us – and I quote:
“We do not allow content that: incites hatred against, promotes discrimination of, or disparages an individual or group on the basis of their race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or other characteristic that is associated with systemic discrimination or marginalization.”
Imagine, they put that in writing! Translated, that means when WND dares to report honestly and forthrightly on the fantastically deranged transgender agenda – where beautiful American kids are indoctrinated, seduced, groomed, recruited and enabled to “transition to a different gender” by taking puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and even undergoing double mastectomies and castration – when we report on this horror show, which we do daily, to Google we are “inciting hatred” and “promoting discrimination.” In reality, of course, we’re defending and protecting the most innocent, helpless and precious among us – the children who make up America’s next generation. That’s not hatred. It’s love. It’s truth. And we’ll never stop telling it for any amount of blood money. But that’s not all they said.
“We do not allow content that: makes claims that are demonstrably false and could significantly undermine participation or trust in an electoral or democratic process.”
Translation: When we document the obvious and provable fact that the 2020 election was one of the most corrupt, manipulated and RIGGED elections in American history, well, that makes us extremists, terrorists, insurrectionists, conspiracy theorists, “semi-fascists” who are undermining democracy and the electoral process. Indeed, since Elon Musk’s dramatic release of the long-hidden “Twitter files,” the fact that the 2020 election was rigged is now utterly undeniable, and everyone knows it.
“We do not allow content that: promotes harmful health claims, or relates to a current, major health crisis and contradicts authoritative scientific consensus.”
Translated, that means “whatever Anthony Fauci and the Big Pharma says goes.”
In Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s temporary restraining order against Google, his lawyers said, and I quote, “This complaint concerns the freedom of speech and the extraordinary steps the United States government has taken under the leadership of Joe Biden to silence people it does not want Americans to hear. Mr. Kennedy is not the only victim of this censorship campaign, which is unprecedented in American history. But he is a high-profile victim, especially since he is now challenging President Biden for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.” Yet, the Democrat machine and online platforms accuse him, the son of Robert F. Kennedy, of delivering “misinformation” about the experimental COVID shots many Americans were forced to take while information about their side effects, sometimes fatal, remained sketchy.
Beginning in the previous century, WND blazed the trail in independent online journalism:
- We were the first to enter the playing field – the first new, independent online news operation, created 26 years ago.
- We were the first news site to begin publishing books – many of them bestsellers.
- We were the first news site to begin making documentary films – some of them bestsellers.
- We were the first news site to incorporate a Judeo-Christian worldview into our reporting, books and movies.
- We were the first online news organization to be officially approved to cover the White House and the Congress.
It was never easy to be the first. We had to fight for everything. We couldn’t take anything for granted. As the years went on, what has become know as the “fake news” pack all caved, led like lambs to the slaughter by Google. They just gave up one the First Amendment.
But, as I’ve told you, beginning in January 2016, with the candidacy of Donald Trump, Big Tech declared total war on us and the rest of the independent media it would blame for Trump’s victory. I warned that they would never let it happen again. And they haven’t forgiven us – or America, with which they are at war.
Meanwhile, most online and conventional media have adapted like caged birds to taking orders from Big Tech and following their rules. They seem to love Big Tech and don’t tolerate dissent within their own ranks. They apparently like being told what to do by their overlords – what to cover, whom to cover and how to cover them. Google and the rest of Big Tech’s assault on independent media goes far beyond just censoring, shadow-banning and rigging search results against us. They’ve destroyed the traditional and essential advertising-based business model of online news – at least for those sites that dare to buck Google’s authoritarian content rules.
As WND’s revenues have continued to plummet because of the Google-Facebook hammerlock on 90% of digital advertising, we have had to stop publishing books and stop making movies. We have had to let many valuable employees go. And we have had to appeal to readers for donations, just to continue to report and publish the news truthfully and faithfully.
Google dropped a huge nuclear bomb on WND by permanently demonetizing us. When they did, the world’s second-wealthiest company finally revealed what they considered the three “big lies” that this news site had been promoting, for which reason they throttled our traffic, advertising revenue and search accessibility.
There’s no end in sight to this relentless attack on free speech and free press that is so damaging to WND. There are only two forces on Earth powerful enough to take on this hateful, un-American, left-wing, anti-God monopoly – this new Tower of Babel. Those two forces are God, and you, the American people.
I pray every day for relief. God has provided us with daily bread as He has promised.
If WND means something special to you, we continue to need your prayers and your financial blessings. While some of our friends in the independent media have billionaire patrons, you should know that we do not, and never have. We’ve always operated the old-fashioned way, earning our own way. We spend only what we take in through revenues and donations.
We do it because we love it. We always have. But we also love you for remembering us. Truly.
Most of all, we love God and trust Him for our daily bread.
So, please, don’t forget to keep us in your prayers. We can feel their effectiveness. They give us great encouragement to keep fighting on.
These are tough and crazy times in America. I’m sure you see that. We thank you for recognizing our unique work, our determination and our fearlessness. And we thank you for yours.
