URGENT Action required by any one interested in free speech and protecting whistle blowers.


From Sibel:
It happened. Blogger just plugged me out. I have a post on this and need
help to disseminate...

This happened right after my subpoena (posted under 'Breaking News') and
after I conducted 2 explosive radio interviews.

They know I'm about to leave the country in 2 days. I need to bring
attention to it right away, and have people scream...

So can you help?

Sibel


Here is what she received from Blogger:



URGENT: GOOGLE BLOCKS MY SITE DURING SENSITIVE PERIOD


WE NEED YOUR HELP


My Blog Site http://123realchange.blogspot.com (http://123realchange.blogspot.com/) is now blocked by Google’s Blogger. They will not let me post during this most sensitive period, when I am about to provide deposition on Foreign US government illegal operations in the United States!

A few weeks ago I started receiving ‘Google & Blogger warnings’ from my technologically savvy friends and well-wishers, who encouraged me to have a mirror site as a back up and or cease using Google’s Blogger all together. I did take these warnings seriously and started looking at alternatives and other options. Well, this is what I got from Blogger yesterday:

I am still looking into it and will be corresponding with them to find out what the heck is going on, but I must say the timing of this is extremely troubling:

Is it coincidence that this comes up when I am subpoenaed (http://123realchange.blogspot.com/2009/08/breaking-news.html) to provide sworn deposition on matters that have sent our government scrambling and certain high-level criminal entities sweating big time?

Is this due to my latest interviews for my Boiling Frogs Show on explosive issues such as AIPAC, Iran, Central Asia, and Pakistan? We know big brother NSA has been listening, and my guests have really been talking. We just wrapped up our phone interviews with Phil Giraldi (on AIPAC & Israel and more), Richard Barlow (on Pakistan and what our government didn’t want its people to know), Joe Trento (on Iran, Brzezinski, and more), Sandalio Gonzalez (on our phony War on Drugs, House of Death, Kent Memo, and more)…You see what I am getting at here?

Or is it the fact that this blog is becoming more popular, the visitors’ number has been going up rapidly, and its content getting picked up by many, nationally and internationally? And I am talking about content and topics that are blacklisted by the US Mainstream Media.

I don’t know the answer. I may never know. However, what I know is this: I better find a different or multiple different, blog sites and keep this forum alive. I also want to warn others who may become subject to this kind of notice, or maybe get terminated without any notice!

Please help me, thus all of us, resolve this blockage immediately, since in the next few days this blog may prove to be extremely crucial to report developing news and cases which will not be covered by MSM.

Thank you,
Sibel Edmonds

One of the most important whistle-blowers in the USA today, silenced on a fake-technicality just when she is about to present sworn testimony she has not been allowed to make in the USA before......why am I not surprised.

She may not be able to post new stuff to Blogger but the current content of the site is safe enough. I'm probably just one of several hundred or more (not to mention various auto-archivers) that have copied the entire site - only 350 Mb or thereabouts. (for anyone wishing to archive vulnerable sites themselves, I recommend HTTrack Web Copier (http://www.httrack.com) - it's opensource freeware and simple to use). If she needs somewhere to post new stuff whilst making other arrangements, I'm sure there will be no shortage of takers - Wikileaks and Cryptome are two obvious choices, plus various alternative news and news aggregation sites. I'll even post them myself but the traffic to my site is derisory and I have no plans to promote it.

I guess the name of the game for those wishing to gag her is to throttle distribution of her stuff as much as possible but if that allegation is made convincingly enough, it could easily turn out to be the trigger for substantially INCREASED distribution.

Thanks for that very useful information Peter. It is amazing what is out there in open source land. I will send that to her. She is in the process of setting up a new site which will not be dependent upon the whims or technical vagaries of Google. This was to be done when she returned from traveling but has been brought forth due to this. The timing is truly impeccable as Peter L and Sibel herself have noted.

I also contacted Wikileaks about this event as well as about 6 other mailing lists and political communities.

Wikileaks might be the best/quickest fix for the emergency situation...but perhaps there are other places one can move a whole website quickly with FTP....but would need some fast footwork and help.
