Do what Comrade Google did to the Chinese Government - GIVE THEM THE FINGER. Google bitched about the Chinese government but it doesn't behave any better. Google has been taking liberties with entire national economies, from which it extracts enormous wealth, while avoiding a reasonable share of the tax burden. If enough people who are being punished in Comrade Google's Kangaroo Court were to follow my example, the revolution would do poor old Comrade Google in.
Giving the Finger to Comrade GOOGLE's brand of Communism
by R.P. BenDedek August 26, 2013 12:15 AM Beijing Time
SCREW GOOGLE (This article was written in 2013 but in 2017 the true nature of Google is becoming apparent)
At the end of this article you will read the following:
I discovered this one day when I checked my stats to discover that I went from normal monthly hits per month to only 30% of those hits. Over the next year the unique hits built up again and then suddenly it happened again. My hits dropped by 70% and then gradually built up again...... What this means apparently is, that once you reach a certain amount of monthly unique hits, Google removes 87% of your article links from its search engine. To test this theory I actually input titles of articles published up to three months previous AND COULDN'T FIND THEM LISTED.
Right now Nov 9th 2017 my unique monthly hits have dropped to the same level as they were just after this site went live in 2004.
The gatekeepers of the Internet may not be concerned as much with censoring or favoring right or left-wing news sources as they are with allowing corporate MSM goliaths to control the narrative and safeguard the establishment.
Earlier this year I began putting a request at the top of the new website pages, for readers to help combat google by adding the page to their social media sites. This is about the only way that anything on my site can be found by anyone who relies on Google.
Google is an abusive organization and this was recently demonstrated when they fired an employee for writing an internal memo critical of Google practices and then later were taken to court by three female employees for their discriminating practices. (See Looking at the News No. 3 "Google Hit With Class Action Lawsuit Over Gender Discrimination by Micah Rate Sep 14, 2017")
Original 2013 Article
Anyone who owns or operates a website knows by now that Google's latest change to its ranking methodology has caused chaos on the web. I had not heard about it until I received a request from 'Guide to Online Schools,' who informed me that Google was punishing them for 'an unnatural link' and that that link was on my website. They advised me that it was important to remove the link as the future well being of their website and the entire company was at stake.
Take that in for a moment. Google has punished a website because I provided a link to it. Actually I wrote an article about what I found there. According to the person who contacted me, my article was one of the better links to their site. But they were punished by Google for what I had done. I'm not being dramatic here by using the word 'punish.' The polite term as I discovered in one article is that Google penalizes sites for 'unnatural links.' (Did Google Penalize BBC News For Unnatural Links? by Barry Schwartz Mar 15, 2013)
According to this website (The Definitive Guide to Recovery from the Unnatural Link Penalty May 6, 2013), Google maintains that "Any links intended to manipulate a site's ranking in Google search results may be considered part of a link scheme." Note that important phrase, 'intended to manipulate.' In a court of law, one of the most basic issues in a finding of 'guilt' is the issue of 'intention.' Did I intend to knock you down or did I carelessly turn around too fast and bump into you?
There is an Australian expression referring to a 'judicial hearing' in which the cards have been deliberately stacked against a defendant in such a way that it is impossible to offer a proper defense. It is called a 'kangaroo court.' In other words, the trial is just for show. Guilt is decided irrespective of evidence. Google's current 'penalties' - read punishments - do not even allow for a sham hearing. There is no hearing because there are no excuses. The Commissars and Cadres of that Political Party which has a monopoly on power and not accountable to the due processes of law have spoken and you will be punished 'comrade.' I live in Communist China and remember quite clearly that Google, not particularly liking the way that the Communist Government of China kept changing the rules, and not desirous of submitting to a 'totalitarian authority,' decided to pull up stakes and leave. Is there a lesson to be learned in that?
The site mentioned above asks: "Isn't the entire point of link building to improve search rankings, and couldn't that always be considered "manipulation?" This is a very good question and I have a better one. What is link building? I have had requests over the years to 'exchange links' and I don't do it, mainly because I don't see the point. I do however provide proper referencing and citations and I duly provide the link to the source. Is that manipulation? Is that 'unnatural linking?' Is that a scheme to manipulate Google?
Apparently according to one site (should I mention it or link to it? I'm not sure): In January and February of 2012, they (the Google Party Leaders) sent out roughly 700,000 messages to webmasters via Webmaster tools. This was an enormous event, especially considering that this superseded the total number of messages sent out in 2011. In fact, it was comparable to the number of messages that they had sent out ever, starting with the launch of the Google Webmaster Tools message center.
This was a big deal despite some people playing it down (not meaning to imply this next site was doing it) but one site (Has Google really just killed the PR industry? by David Moth 12 August, 2013) seemed to indicate that Google was just refining their constantly changing methodology. But here's the rub - they also point out that:
Having a limited knowledge of SEO is probably more dangerous than having no knowledge at all. If you put links in anchor text because you think it's the right thing to do, that could harm you and your client. Unfortunately not all PRs will be as aware of how SEO works, so there may be some who come undone as a result of the latest Google update.
Did you get that? What Google has done is firstly not understood by everyone and secondly is harming websites which, as I pointed out in the beginning, did nothing at all to deserve being thrown into 'solitary' to live on bread and water (which could happen if they rely on the site for their income.)
One person I discussed these issues with in an attempt to understand Comrade Google, suggested that what Comrade Google is doing at the moment is just another attempt to gain control of the web and the 'punishments' are (in the deepest recesses of the Comrades intents), nothing more than an attempt to "suppress any chance of a website receiving "free" traffic or any chance of a website raising to the top of the search results due to the large number of links (ie incoming unique hits from various links.) Google are now really pushing the envelope with this to make sure more and more webmasters have to rely on and use their paid Adwords program."
That made me sit up and think. Gee is that why Comrade Google keeps sending me advertising asking me to part with money so that I can make more and more money? Maybe I should have paid attention.
ICOMP Applauds Katz's "Google's Monopoly and Internet Freedom"
Katz outlines how Google's manipulation of search results, in order to maintain and extend its monopoly in search and various segments of online advertising, has harmed his company and online users. Katz urges Google to change its monopolistic practices and calls on the company's directors to take a lead in doing so. Noting that we are facing a "pivotal moment," given the European Commission's invitation for Google to remedy its abusive conduct or face formal legal proceedings, Katz proposes four simple steps Google should take:
First, he calls on Google to "be more transparent about how its search engine operates."
Second, he calls on Google to "provide consumers with access to . . . unbiased search results . . . regardless of which company owns the service."
Third, he proposes that "Google should grant all companies equal access to advertising opportunities regardless of whether they are considered a competitor."
Finally, he urges Google to, "take a good, hard look at its philosophy and business model and ask if this is the company Sergey Brin and Larry Page set out to build when they chose as their motto: 'Don't be evil.'"
These are not radical proposals. Indeed, it's hard to imagine any company finding fault with them.
Miraculously, Google finds a way to do so.
Since the beginning of the year the number of unique hits to my site has dropped to 30%. Have I done something wrong? If the experts don't quite understand what Comrade Google is doing then how can I? But I do understand a number of things quite clearly:
1. With fewer unique hits per month, revenue from placing Google advertising on my site must go down.
2. If Google doesn't think my placement of their ads is important then why should I?
3. Unless a website has a huge number of unique hits per month, the amount you earn from putting Google advertising on your site is chicken feed. Therefore why bother with their ads?
3. If you talk about your Google advertising you can be punished for disobeying the Commissars. The same autocrats now punish someone else if you somehow, somewhere provide a link to their website.
4. Comrade Google didn't put up with the Communist Government's attempts to 'control' them so why should I?
5. Comrade Google didn't like the way the Communist Government kept 'changing the rules,' so why should I?
6. When Comrade Google got sick of the Chinese Government, they gave their overlords the finger so why shouldn't I?
7. What’s good for the gander is also good for this goose.
If the experts don't understand exactly what Comrade Google is doing and don't know what to do about all this 'unnatural links' stuff, then there is nothing I can do, except do what Comrade Google did to the Chinese Government - GIVE THEM THE FINGER.
Since all of this came to my attention I have not included the voluntary Google ads on my website pages. Furthermore, I have begun to remove ads from existing pages. I figure it will take me a good few months to get rid of them all and at that time I will ask my webmaster to remove Comrade Google's compulsory sidebar advertising. I have already removed all the URL channels in Google adsense. (My Webmaster advised me that he could remove all advertising with a few keystrokes and now it is all gone.) In time, either via Comrade Google's actions or my own, I will cease all connection with Comrade Google. My annual revenue from Google ads has absolutely no bearing on my finances so I don't need them. My ranking and therefore unique hits on Google has died so I don't need Comrade Google anymore. It is Comrade Google who makes the real money from advertising and if enough people who are being punished in Comrade Google's kangaroo court were to follow my example, the revolution would do poor old Comrade Google in. As advertising space became more limited, advertisers would have to pay higher and higher fees to make sure that they got their ads placed. As fees got higher and higher, more advertisers would pull out.
Nobody dislikes manipulation and totalitarian control more than Comrade Google - as evidenced by their move to Hong Kong, but as suggested in the last link above, Comrade Google does not want to give up its totalitarian power over the masses.
I have come to the decision that the only thing I can do is take a page out of Comrade Google's 'Little Red Book' and say: 'Screw You!'
Dear Mr. Google
Here are 5 Questions one of my contacts would like answered
1. You started unleashing your “panda” “penguin” and “unnatural link” penalties around August last year and while millions of webmasters immediately experienced a severe impact on earnings Google suddenly started to enjoy an almost 30% (!!) boost in growth and earnings. Isn't that a bit strange?
2. If a site is violating Google’s “guidelines” then how come paying Google for traffic via a paid ad is allowed and makes the site OK?
3. Why aren’t Google simply ignoring the “unnatural” links and stop using them in rank calculations. Why does Google have to penalize a website and limit its exposure instead?
4. Why is a website being punished for the action of another website for which it has no control?
5. Why is linking to a product/resource/service being viewed by Google as spam but having a Google text ad on that very same page with many paid links to other websites/resources is fine?
Last week, we finally decided to stop supporting Google. Our disaffection has been brewing for a while.
We've become increasingly dismayed by evidence that the search giant has been taking liberties with its users and entire national economies, from which its Adwords and search data sales activities extract enormous wealth, while avoiding a reasonable share of the tax burden.
claiming that Google was paying ''an effective global corporate tax rate of almost 20 per cent
According to The Financial Times, which combed through the filings of one of Google's Dutch subsidiaries and uncovered the channelling of massive royalties to a Bermuda entity, it's pays only 5 per cent globally. It pays Australia considerably less. In 2011, despite earning revenue of at least $1 billion in this country, it managed to engineer a total tax payment of $74,176.
Most websites are like mine in that their "Google Ad Income" is chicken feed. It does not pay your costs or make you rich, but what it does do is make Google Rich. All that chicken feed from millions of websites adds up to a heck of a lot of money for Google and I for one have no intention of rewarding Google for punishing me. That is perverse! I'm not a masochist. I have come to the decision that the only thing I can do is take a page out of Comrade Google's 'Little Red Book' and say: 'Screw You!'
A lot has happened over the years with Google. For one, some people don't understand why their monthly unique hits keep taking sudden dives. I discovered this one day when I checked my stats to discover that I went from normal monthly hits per month to only 30% of those hits. Over the next year the unique hits built up again and then suddenly it happened again. My hits dropped by 70% and then gradually built up again.
When I decided to check this out, I was amazed to discover that Google actively holds back websites which do not participate in its advertising platforms - either by allowing ads or paying for them.
What this means apparently is, that once you reach a certain amount of monthly unique hits, Google removes 87% of your article links from its search engine. To test this theory I actually input titles of articles published up to three months previous AND COULDN'T FIND THEM LISTED.
Google bitches about the Chinese government but it doesn't behave any better.
Propaganda is the tool of the manipulative and is easily used on the stupid and in the USA it seems that ‘stupid’ is not a rare commodity. Democrats and others on the left (including alleged Republicans) would have you believe that all the political activism against TRUMP (which started before he took his Oath of Office) is all related to their righteous and just causes as they uphold the Constitution of the USA and the principles of Democracy and Freedom. Unfortunately for them the facts demonstrate something different as one can read in this following tidbit.
These same media types – the ones now screaming to have their voices heard in the media concerning improper sexual advances made by media moguls and powerful media personalities, KEPT QUIET for decades about the abuse of young male and female actors in Hollywood.... he had taken clippings from a newspaper which showed a photograph of two beautiful women - both mothers of children - now living in a Lesbian relationship... Men are to blame for women turning into lesbians... Women don't need men anymore because men are useless... If women are becoming lesbians because men can't satisfy them (in a myriad of ways) then it [homosexuality] must be a choice... The story, far from indicating that MEN ARE AT FAULT, clearly told me that the women's marriages failed because they couldn't be honest with themselves or their husbands.
Another issue concerning which most people pay little attention – if they are even aware of it – is the ‘Law of Unintended Consequences.’ This little universal law often makes mush of our fantastically righteous ideologies. In Catalonia, Beersheba, The Ottomans, Tibetans and Palestinians which I published on October 30th. 2017, I pointed out that the whole issue of Catalan independence is a can of ideological worms for all of those whose hearts bleed for Palestinian Independence.
The British took the land from the Ottoman Turks and eventually divided it between Jews and Muslims. They either had that right or they did not!... The difference between Catalonia and Tibet on the one hand and the Palestinians on the other, is that neither Catalonia nor Tibet have called for, nor stated their desire for the destruction of Spain or China, whilst the Palestinians via their leaders in Hamas and Fatah have made it quite clear that there will never be peace with the Jews until every last one of them has been thrown into the sea.
In Canada meanwhile, free speech is under threat from anticipated legislation in relation to Hate Speech laws which will, if they are introduced, make it impossible to criticize anything about Islam or Muslims. Muslim human rights activist and Clarion Project board member Raheel Raza however has appeared before the Canadian Parliament to oppose this effort to stifle free speech; an effort which she sees as promoting all sorts of social injustices.
There could be more trouble than we ever imagined headed our way on November 4th when a bunch of folks who aren’t happy about Trump and Pence attempt to overthrow the government in a Communist revolution. Groups like Antifa, Resist Fascism, and the Revolutionary Communist Party have been meeting for months to openly plan sedition and organize what they promise will be massive protests all over the country. Don’t be surprised if things become violent... A disturbing Antifa website is calling for physical violence against supporters of President Donald Trump and capitalists. The site “It’s Going Down,” which has become a resource for self-described “anti-fascist” activists, encourages violence against anyone it labels a “fascist.”
Someone who writes under the name Old Woolfy at i.Patriot.com wrote on Sept 29, 2017 that not all of those on the left agree with all of the rubbish currently being pumped out on the left in the USA. He writes in Liberal Downfall: Lunacy Right Before Our Eyes! ... Timothy Meads (Oct 01, 2017) in an article titled British Professor Shows “Sex Change Regret” is Rising, University Takes Away His Funding points out that once the preliminary research report demonstrated that many transgendered people had later come to regret their decision, the research was rejected. Honestly, whilst all the ‘feel good’ people are busy virtue signaling their support for young people who believe that they are living in the wrong body, the reality is that their support may one day come home to bite them in the ass.
When counter protesters set out to impede, provoke and confront an opposing ideological group, what results is what one would expect to result and only the idiotic, mindless, anally retentive and just plain stupid person would claim that it is not their fault that the protesters got upset or took action against them. But who are we kidding here? Counter protesters don’t believe in righteousness or otherwise. They are just rabble – SS troopers – sent in to do their master’s bidding. Give them all a baton and gun and see how quickly they will turn into killing machines to rid society of all its evils – starting with Donald Trump of course!
Mao Wenwen reminded me that when she was my student I would often refer to her as Mao Zedong. I do that sometimes – calling students by the names of famous or infamous people. Paying honor to me as her English teacher Mao Wenwen provided me the coffee free of charge (courtesy of the management.) She also invited Johnny and me to come inside and take a look around, and once I did, I decided that I wanted to come back to take photos. Receiving permission from the owner, all I needed was the chance to get back.
The demolition came as row between the church and government escalated over allegations the church refused to pay a £450 arbitrary road usage fee. Pastor Zhang Di was summoned for questioning last month and accused of assaulting police officers and attacking a village official. So when I read reports as in the link you sent and see the ACTUAL TRUTH in the middle of the article, I know that there is a lot more going on than is being reported.

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
