The following is an update on this post: OBAMA: TERROR BLOGS CHECK! COUNTER JIHAD BLOGS DELETE! ANTI-OBAMA SITES BLOCKED!
-By Warner Todd Huston, Town Hall
It looks like Google has officially joined the Barack Obama campaign and decided that its contribution would be to shut down any blog on the Google owned Blogspot.com blogging system that has an anti-Obama message. Yes, it sure seems that Google has begun to go through its many thousands of blogs to lock out the owners of anti-Obama blogs so that the noObama message is effectively squelched. Thus far, Google has terminated the access by blog owners to 7 such sites and the list may be growing. Boy, it must be nice for Barack Obama to have an ally powerful enough to silence his opponents like that!
It isn’t just conservative sites that Google’s Blogger platform is eliminating. For instance, www.comealongway.blogspot.com has been frozen and this one is a Hillary supporting site. The operator of Come a Long Way has a mirror site off the Blogspot platform and has today posted this notice:
I used to have a happy internet home on Blogger: http://www.comealongway.blogspot.com. Then on Wednesday night, June 25, I received the following e-mail:
Dear Blogger user,
This is a message from the Blogger team.
Your blog, at http://comealongway.blogspot.com/, has been identified as a potential spam blog. You will not be able to publish posts to your blog until we review your site and confirm that it is not a spam blog.
The Blogger Team
It turns out that there is an interesting pattern where it concerns the blogs that Google’s Blogspot team have summarily locked down on their service. They all belong to the Just Say No Deal coalition, a group of blogs that are standing against the Obama campaign. It seems the largest portion of these blogs are Hillary supporting blogs, too.
All I can say is, WOW! If Google is willing to abuse its power like this even against fellow leftists, what does it plan against conservatives, the folks Google hates even more!?
Here is a list of the Blogspot blogs that have been frozen by Google thus far: The blogs are there, just frozen to the blogger, they cannot post..suppose they think visitors will just stop coming over and it will die down..don’t think they know how bloggers will help other bloggers..no matter your politics..right is right and wrong is wrong! When they don’t like something on this blog…how long will it be before you support something they don’t like? So get up in arms people!
Update: some of the bloggers have been reinstated so to speak, many have moved their sites to wordpress. It would seem from what I can tell, that some savvy bloggers marked the blogs as spam..Google’s policies should be (from where I sit) to investigate before freezing a blog..investigate if it is truly spam or unethical people causing this..as it seems that is what happened at the present time.

On another topic:
Wow, talk about dirty politics…any reader on this blog knows I am no Obama lover and consider him to be dangerous to our country…You also know I have felt the Media has given him a free pass..I have also stated that there was no loyalty to Hillary Clinton from the Democratic party..not to mention some of those close to her campaign..Bill Mitchell..others and certainly no condemnation from Boxer, Pelosi, Feinstein and others on the behavior of his campaign and supporters..but this is certainly an interesting blog spot for you to visit..could someone have stuck a knife in Hillary’s campaign from within the campaign? Read this and check out the video and see what you think..
You’ve got to see this fascinating analysis by Karen Hill exposing someone within the Clinton campaign (or the advertising firm) trying to sabotage Hillary Clinton through messages planted in her advertisements. Go read Karen Hill’s analysis, Is this Obama-style politics? We know how he played dirty politics with Alice Palmer, had her eliminated after all, he did not want to run against a viable incumbent. Much easier to get elected when there is no one to oppose you. Heck, we all know the change Obamamaniacs want to bring to America..If Karen Hill’s analysis is correct..there is a new low in politics..Obama’s supporters that reduce themselves to getting blogs blocked says a lot about the caliber of his supporters but for someone on the inside to sabotage? Well, say it ain’t so.
