Preface: This post / page was first posted on 7.12.2011. It disappeared right after I first posted it on 7.12.2011 and it disappeared again on 7.13.2011. So I just re-posted it for a second time. Someone somewhere is attempting to censor free speech in America that dissents from any official information coming from the White House. This fact should be noted as one of the Top Ten Signs of Emerging Fascism. I want to thank readers for being here, and for caring enough to tell others about my work and for sharing the information they find on this blog. Please help me to continue to remain online. I need to vacate the heavily surveilled WP blogging platform asap. I need your financial support to do that. Browse the store or make a donation. Each time this post is removed I will re-post it. It will remain on the front page of this blog through Labor Day. I intend to make my point. Trying to silence factual dissenting speech in America will only make that speech grow louder.  I intend to keep researching, writing and speaking the truth to Americans, who are my friends, my family, my beloved countrymen, my neighbors. Thank you again for taking the time to read and share what you find on Alternative News Report.

I need to correct the erroneous percentages I see being bantered around in the media. It is NOT 14% of Americans who are now on food stamps. It is 20%.

Has WordPress Betrayed It’s Bloggers? Too Many “WTF” Censorship Moments

13 Jul

Copyright 2011-3011 By Chase Kyla Hunter and Photonic Portal 2037, All Rights Reserved. Re-posting of this essay is disallowed. Link-backs only.

Author’s Notes:

The post began as a routine report. I had heard a local conservative radio host comment that nearly 20% of Americans are now on food stamps. The number seemed absurd so I looked it up when I got home. I just happened to catch a chart in a YT video which showed the escalating numbers of food stamp recipients. I intended to post it. I checked other fact sheets and articles and saw that 20% of America, not 14% is actually currently on food stamps. This fact flies in the face of Big Media spin which is telling us about the “economic recovery.” I intended to post that as well. But the story suddenly took a bizarre turn when I tried to do a very routine thing on WordPress – to set up a new post category. It’s something I do dozens of times a week. Very routine.

As I was typing the phrase “2011 Food Stamp Statistics” into the text pane for new parent categories, something happened which IS NOT supposed to be possible on WordPress, especially when you own the domain you are posting to. A red box appeared with the phrase: “You do not have permission to do that.”

I actually thought it was some sort of joke, like a belated April Fool’s spoof, going on on WordPress. I tried to type but nothing would enter the pane. I refreshed the page – twice. When the red text box refused to disappear I grabbed a screen shot of it and this very routine post, suddenly became all about censorship, much more than it was about how many people are now living on food stamps.

I finished the post, told what happened, inserted the screen shot and posted it. It immediately disappeared after I posted it, although six altered versions had been held in draft form. They all disappeared. I began re-creating the post from scratch. I posted the re-creation and it held. I placed it on the front page. Later that same evening I put another front page up. When I logged on this am, the page version of what I had done had disappeared from my list of pages. I re-created the page version again, re-told the expanding story, and now it will remain on my main blog’s front page, along with this front page, until further notice. What’s taking place is dreadful.

There are only two options here:

1) The good men and women behind WordPress have no control of when the NSA goons seize control of their platform and do what they will with it,

Or

2) WordPress has on their staff, employees in freelance, who, unknown to WordPress, are working for the FED in some capacity to try to intimidate people like me on WP, and there are thousands of us.

I had planned on eventually spending thousands of dollars to support WordPress and keep all my news blogs hosted on their platform. That won’t happen now. I do not think that WP will ever admit what is, or what has happened, but this blogging platform is being surveilled. The minute someone somewhere tried to tell me “You do not have permission to do that” on my own news blog, the truth telling and the entire story changed.

At some point soon I will be vacating this platform, but not before I expose each and every incident where my own free speech as a reporter is suppressed [ or attempted to be suppressed ] from behind the scenes. So this page will also now remain up until further notice as the front page for Photonic Portal 20137. I know it’s not “photonic” in nature, but it IS pertinent. Here’s the story that inspired the goofy red box text, with a screen shot of the actual censosrhip effort. Can we say “epic fail?”

RT News London on Libya: “This is Not A No fly Zone. This is the Bombardment of Civilians By Allied Forces.”

21 Mar

“Barack Obama has now fired more cruise missiles than all other Nobel Peace prize winners combined http://t.co/MnaXVe1 “

US Lawmakers Back Libya Military Action. They’re Just Not Sure What It Is.

March 2011 has brought Americans yet another dire omen of political and foreign policy ill winds to come: we are now inching toward becoming embroiled in Libya, against all better common sense and judgment. I do not agree with Sarah Palin on this one. Sometimes you just have to let these nations work out their own destinies without sticking your foreign policy fingers and your overbearing cruise missiles into the mix, thus making it all potentially much worse.

Anymore, what we used to call “foreign policy” in America has seemingly become just one long intellectual justification for the U.S. military machine to do whatever the hell it wants to, whenever and where ever it wants to.

Whatever happened to the will and consent of the American people in all this? It’s our money that’s being spent here.

While the US military rained down at least 100 cruise missiles onto Libya, causing more than 60 civilian casualties, Barack Obama gave a speech on human rights in Brazil. The resulting utter political and humane cognitive dissonance was loud enough to be heard back in the states all the way from South America.

As the Obama White House adds yet another overseas military Op to it’s list of “things to do when you are utterly bankrupt”, it seems more and more that the US does not exactly “go to war” in a definitive manner anymore. We just kind of kick around, hands in pockets, muse it all over, then more or less sort of “stumble in”, and fall into some kind of rote in so doing that makes me really wonder not only who’s really in charge, but what kind of thinking allows that in the shape we are in financially here at home, what orchard where money grows on trees are we now plucking from now to justify the cost of yet another military intervention?

I am sick over this, just sick over it. I am sick of death, and men and their ridiculous wars, and the insane justifications that are conjured up each time our military does this. We literally can’t afford to do this. I avoided reporting on it for a week because I just COULD NOT BELIEVE that in the wake of Iraq, that we were going to crank up yet another overseas military involvement. Our miserable UN assigned “job” as the world’s military police force has bankrupted our nation, cost thousands of precious young American lives, and is now soon to incite world war three in the Mideast if we don’t stop this.

If we are now going to intervene in Libya, it would stand to reason we would then intervene throughout the entire Mideast region. Nothing makes sense anymore.

Just the mere thought of Barack Obama making a speech in Brazil on human rights as US military intervention cranks up in Libya makes me ill with the utter sight of the duplicity of it all. I have never wanted a man OUT of the White House like I want this man OUT. It goes without saying that this is the most disastrous president I have seen in my lifetime. 2012 cannot get here fast enough for me. Vote this incompetent SOB out of the White House in 2012 before he leads us straight into a final nuclear conflagration in the Mideast that could spread all around the world.

2011 Begins With an Eruption of Stunning World Events

11 Feb

Copyright 2011-3011 By Chase Kyla Hunter, All Rights Reserved.


Dead Birds, Sinkholes, Gas Explosions, Egyptian Revolt, Jared Loughner,

Comet Elenin: 2011 Begins With an Eruption of Stunning World Events


2010 ended with a rather ugly little Christmas present for the American people, delivered by the History Channel. I was still assessing the implications of this TV bomb that had been dropped, as the year turned.

2011 began with the bang of thousands of dead birds falling from the sky, dead fish washed up on river banks by the ton, dead seals, dead crabs, jellyfish, dead doves in Italy and millions of Americans scratching their heads over it.

Sinkholes had begun appearing all over the world in 2010, much of this news being skipped over by our lamestream Big Media outlets who broadcast at the behest of White House directives, or so it would seem. Just as suddenly citizen journalists began reporting in January 2011 much odd and unusual activity in the New Madrid earthquake fault zone, which covers a sprawling 10 state region in the central USA.  Truth researchers speculated as to whether HAARP testing in the region played any role. A dead government official, obviously murdered, had turned up in an east coast landfill weeks earlier, and suddenly there was an unlikely plethora of new dots to be connected.

A new comet had been discovered on the winter solstice December 21st 2010, by a Russian amateur astronomer named Leonid Elenin. The comet was named after him, and astronomers began tracking the comet’s trajectory seeking to learn how closely it might be passing by the earth. Those reports, as they filtered in, became worse and worse. The problematic “pole shift” phrase began popping up on blogs again, much as we all hated to use the over-worked term. The magnetic poles have now re-adjusted so frequently since 1994 that the Tampa Airport had to repaint the numbers aligning the runways to true north so that pilots can properly locate the magnetic pole and land their planes.

While we were all pondering the truthfulness [ or not ] of the apparent emerging visibility of rogue brown dwarf Nibiru, a possible companion star to our sun [a binary sun system is the usual norm in the universe ] which never made it to full “sundom”, along with the masses of dead animals everywhere, a schizophrenic man in Tucson Arizona, Jared Loughner, who clearly had needed psychiatric help for years, gunned down Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 19 others at a Safeway Grocery store speaking event, killing 6, leaving Giffords barely alive and fighting for her life.

As horrendous as the shooting itself was, the appalling media melee that followed had me pondering life in Costa Rica as a possible “out” and escape hatch from the madness of America.

I started another blog in late January 2011 just to record the stellar [ no pun intended ] number of amateur astronomer’s new accounts of strange aerial objects, manifestation, UFOS, “orbs” and new comets: Photonic Portal 2037.

With the grieving and outraged American public still reeling from this latest tragedy, as if on cue, the Egyptian people rose up with a resounding roar and took to the streets by the millions, relentlessly demanding day by day that Hosni Mubarak, their Pharaoh-like Overlord and ruler for over 30 years, propped up by numerous US administrations, resign and step down immediately.Violence between the people and Mubarak’s military machine riveted the world, and Egypt’s Revolt of 2011 began to dominate the news for the next two weeks.

A highly visible and public stand-off between the people of Egypt and Mubarak ensued for the next 18 days, only finally ending today when Mubarak resigned this morning, under direct applied pressure from the US and UK behind the scenes.

Do we live in “Biblical Times”? You better believe we do. The posts listed below I have collected from the first part of 2011 and represent the connected dots which constitute MUST READING for new site guests trying to grapple with these events, just as truth researchers and writers do.

I’m usually up until 2 am each evening trying to stay abreast of what’s taking place, and back at it again early the next day. If you find this blog helpful, I’d love to have you make a small donation to make sure it can continue to be here.

Thanks, and I am glad you found my little outpost of truth reporting in a sea of silly meaningless media distractions like Lady Gaga, “Glee” [ most useless TV show award ] and Lindsay Lohan [most useless human being award]. May the truth continue to rise up and roar on planet earth, and may my true King of Kings return soon. We need Him desperately on this world.

Kill Switch, Egypt Day Seven: Is There Hope for A Nonviolent End to the Egyptian Revolt?

31 Jan

Updated 01.31.2011 Copyright 2011-3011 By Chase Kyla Hunter, All Rights Reserved.

World news coverage of the people’s revolt against Mubarak in Egypt is exploding, the revolt being now in it’s 7th day. Riots continue and a call has gone out for a million man march tomorrow on Tuesday. Google News Zeitgeist shows an uptick in the trending of reporting on the crisis, with a very high number this morning of 22,429 news stories appearing in the Google news aggregator which cover the Egypt crisis.

See http://news.google.com

Consensus is that the Obama White House was both personal and intellectually caught off guard by events in Egypt, with WH cabinet members now walking a delicate line of appearing to support the people, while reluctantly disinclined to cease all support for Mubarak either. It’s an impossible political position to take without revealing your own motives and underpinnings.

Tear gas canisters, tanks, rifles, and other military supplies deployed by Mubarak’s troops clearly show “Made in USA” labels. Is this revolt secretly “made in the USA?” I’m not willing or ready to speculate aloud on this blog about that but I am posting at least 2 other videos which make some interesting speculations. See other recent posts on this blog for the coverage of the early days of the rioting.

On Twitter many other American patriots take a” wait and see” position on Egypt or try to ignore the explosion of rage now that it’s seven day old news, and get back to the business of raging and ranting against our own government instead. I feel it’s a mistake to disregard what’s happening now in the Mideast. This does not feel like a “flare-up” of popular discontent that’s going to go away.

For one, the sheer numbers of people who have poured into the streets in Egypt, including the unprecedented appearance of scarf-wrapped Muslim women who have joined the protesters, indicates that the Mubarak regime will have to kill tens of thousands of his own people if he intends to heavy-handedly deploy brute military force to stop the uprising. Watching it all feels rather like sitting on a pile of high dry tinder while watching a wildfire raging about a half mile away, and wondering if the tinder pile you are sitting on is actually really safe.

American patriots have much to mull over as we watch what may come of yet another “people’s uprising” against yet another rotten to the core and corrupt military dictatorship overseas, only thinly disguised as “governance” at all.

I am adamant in my spiritual position that violence is never the proper solution. But that is making me an unpopular writer in the more radical circles of American discontent with our own government. I am well aware that there is a thick vein of inclination among certain anti-government groups here in the states that the only way forward now is to take to the streets, but they are dead wrong.

Using political due process, and voting into the D.C. cauldron the necessary “new political blood” while voting out the corrupted aging and irrelevant  factors which support the CFR and UN positions must proceed, just as it commenced on November 2nd landslide turning of the tide against the incumbent White House, which offers, neither hope, change, or a whit of common sense as to how to govern America.

Let’s keep our wits about us here in the states, and keep our shoulders to the wheel of legal and ethical political “due process”. Those who press for freedom from Mubarak in Egypt should be reminded of the “Gandhi position”, which is to take the spiritual high road, not that I assume by any stretch that they will. Someone somewhere has fomented this tsunami of discontent, and someone somewhere will soon benefit greatly from it. I am presently doing a great deal of reading on “The Muslim Brotherhood” as well as the activities of our own CIA in the past few months and years, regarding Egyptian popular disaffection with Mubarak.

One can only hope that the Egyptian population has the will to proceed with their revolution in a nonviolent and peaceful manner; to state their case with no more bloodshed. But the powder keg fuse appears to be burning now, and events in the Mideast may accelerate toward further destabilization sooner, rather than later.

Somewhere a man is waiting in the wings, who will assume the prophesied role of the Imam Mahdi at the precise moment when he feels it will be most advantageous to his global aims and goals. Once the Mideast violence rises to a cacophony and crescendo that’s deafening to all ears, he may emerge to answer their call. World War III will eventually commence out of his false pretext of peaceful “new age” entry.

I wait. I watch. I write. I pray. It’s too late now to do anything but review The KJV Book of Daniel and ponder the coming “blow by blow news coverage it provides” of the Imam Mahdi’s world conquest, the same world conquest that a man named Daniel saw in visions and wrote about nearly 2,600 years ago.

“You don’t just have a government and a movement for democracy,” former British Prime Minister Tony Blair cautioned on Monday. “You also have others, notably the Muslim Brotherhood, who would take this in a different direction. We need to be anxious to meet the aspirations of the people, but do it in a way that produces something better.”

Egypt and the Failure of the Obama Doctrine

Article Quotes:

To give Egyptians the greatest possible prospects for liberty, the Obama Administration should change course and press any government that emerges to:

  • Pledge to minimize the use of force and the loss life in its efforts to restore order;
  • Agree to open up the political system to allow meaningful participation by Egyptian citizens in forming a representative government; and
  • Restore Internet service and access to the world.

The Obama Administration should review U.S. assistance to Egypt and make further assistance contingent upon undertaking these actions.

White House Quietly Preparing for “Post-Mubarak” Egypt

A tight-lipped White House is taking an even-handed approach to the crisis in Egypt, suggesting that President Mubarak might be able to hold onto power if he allows competitive elections and restores individual freedoms. But inside the Obama administration, there are signs that officials are preparing for a post-Mubarak era after three decades.

One former senior administration advisor said he had spoken to his old colleagues inside the Obama administration in recent days about the unrest in Egypt. As early as last Wednesday, the Obama administration recognized that they would not be able to prop up the Mubarak regime and keep it in power at all costs, the former official said.

“They don’t want to push Mubarak over the cliff, but they understand that the Mubarak era is over and that the only way Mubarak could be saved now is by a ruthless suppression of the population, which would probably set the stage for a much more radical revolution down the road.”

Obama gave a much-publicized speech in Cairo in 2009 warning that governments cannot suppress people’s rights. With protesters massing in the street demanding Mubarak’s ouster, Obama would be hard-pressed to side with a repressive leader.

Obama administration officials “recognized that change was coming and they needed to be on the right side of history and not try to keep Mubarak in power against all odds,” the former official said. “It’s a very difficult balance to be struck. Mubarak is, after all, a friend of the United States for the last 30 years. A lot of our allies in the region — the Saudis, Jordanians and Kuwaitis — will be particularly nervous if it looks like the U.S. is doing in one of their friends.

“The administration understand this. But the most important thing they understand is that they have to get in front of this and not behind it.”

The former administration official spoke on condition of anonymity so that he could be more candid about sensitive diplomatic issues.

The White House is trying to deliver a consistent message on fast-moving events in Egypt, dispatching Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, one of the more disciplined speakers in American politics, for a round of Sunday talk-show appearances.

Obama is monitoring events through regular briefings with staff and close consultation with regional allies.

On Saturday, he spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, and to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the White House said.

Obama received a briefing on the Egyptian crisis at the White House on Saturday and Sunday and also spoke to Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain on Sunday.

In the course of those conversations, Obama urged “an orderly transition to a government that is responsive to the aspirations of the Egyptian people,” the White House said in a prepared statement on Sunday. Obama also asked the various leaders to assess the turmoil in Egypt.
