Facebook is getting super strict and strange. Thank God I don’t “do” Facebook Live because I have been banned for months–!! Here is what happens (truly bizarre- read on): every time my “sentence” is just about up, Facebook dredges up an OLD AND DELETED anti-Trump meme (with no nudity or violence-!), says it goes against community standards, and I am then extended for my “sentence”! My latest 3-day sentence was strange: they stated it was going to be 2 days, then it became 3 days without warning…for posting a public Wikipedia article seen by countless people with no warning labels on it or anything! The last time I was in Facebook jail for a few days was over the July 4th shooter…for a photo of him in a suit with no label, no weapons, no hate, nothing- it could have been a photo of John Q. Citizen in that suit! Moral to the story: be very careful. I keep hearing other people being thrown in Facebook jail quite a bit. The old standards of “nudity and violence” are no-brainers, but they are now getting you for bizarre stuff.
Another “Big-Brother-is-watching” item: from roughly 1998-2013, I was THE international king of all things JFK Secret Service on Google and elsewhere—meaning, if you typed in “Clint Hill”, “Gerald Blaine”, other agent’s names, or just “JFK Secret Service”, my material (blogs, Amazon, etc.) would come up in dominating droves. THEN, in 2013, RIGHT BEFORE THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY KICKED IN (and on the eve of my first book coming out), I became radioactive: NOTHING of mine was showing on Google any longer! I went from the 15-year king to a cellar dweller overnight and it has been this way ever since, despite 1100-plus You Tube videos, countless blog postings, etc. with the “JFK Secret Service” tags, HTML, and related items in writing.
Another thing happened in 2013: Blaine’s friend (the one with the military intelligence background [old story-see my books, etc.]) began harassing me online and at work resulting in multiple blogs and Amazon reviews being deleted. Also, ALL MY MANY AMAZON REVIEWS WENT AWAY and I am no longer allowed to post reviews, the reason being that I am “biased”–?!
And, as I wrote in the link below, I and several other authors were the victims of censorship RIGHT ON THE EVE of a massive best-selling book about the Secret Service (that espoused the whole blame-the-victim mantra about JFK): ZERO FAIL by Carol Leonnig! ALL FIVE OF MY BOOKS DISAPPEARED ON AMAZON AND OTHER PRO-CONSPIRACY AUTHORS WERE VICTIMS OF THIS, AS WELL! I (we) had to fight with Amazon to get the links restored…but the damage was done. By the time they were back online, the 48-hour massive hype for her book (which could have POSTIVELY affected sales of all of our books–hint hint) had passed. I monitor Amazon literally every day since 2013 (just a thing I do-I don’t think I have EVER missed a day checking to see the rankings, etc. [now I check to make sure this is no more corruption]) and this was the ONLY time THIS happened.
Things that make you go “hmmmmm”…
