Google blacklisted Natural News – and there’s cheering in the streets

Natural News, a website run by Mike Adams, the self styled Health Ranger, is a festering cesspool of junk medicine, pseudoscience and conspiracy theories. There isn’t one positive thing I can say about the website, but there’s very good news – Google blacklisted Natural News. If you use Google (who doesn’t?), then perform a search for “Natural News” or the title of any story on that website, the actual website (naturalnews.com) does not appear at all in the search results. The only results that seem to appear are articles about Natural News. And a wonderfully snarky RationalWiki article.

Of course, Mike Adams went nuclear, something he’s done in the past with Dr. David Gorski. In response to the Google action, Adams posted an article, “GOOGLE blacklists Natural News… removes 140,000 pages from its index… “memory holes” Natural News investigative articles on vaccines, pharma corruption, fraudulent science and more.” Apparently, Adams jumped off the cliff of delusion down into the cave of hilarity. This has apparently unhinged him in ways that we skeptics have never quite been able to do, despite pointing out every dumb thing he’s ever written.

 

Google blacklisted Natural News – Mike Adams’ hilarious response

Let’s start right at the beginning – Mike Adams wrote:

Late last week, I received a direct threat that warned if I did not take steps to destroy Alex Jones and InfoWars, I would be targeted for destruction in a campaign of smears, censorship and defamation.

Instead of giving in to the enemy, I refused to take the bait and went public with details of the threat, warning everyone in the new media that sinister forces were now being pursued to undermine and silence every anti-establishment (and pro-Trump) voice on the internet.

True to form, today the entire Natural News website has been blacklisted by Google, entirely without warning.

In case you were wondering, Adams is a supporter of Alex Jones, one of the lunatics supporting Donald Trump. Oh, and he is a big Trump fanboy. As the loquacious Orac puts it, “More recently, Adams has become a die-hard Donald Trump supporter and a rising star in the alt-right.”

Just as an ironic aside, when I get into “discussions” with liberals who believe in pseudoscientific nonsense, and use Natural News as their “reliable source,” I constantly have to remind them that Mike Adams is a right wing Trump supporting crackpot. He is the number 1 American Loon.

But it gets worse.

The removal of Natural News from Google’s index means that millions of people may now be unnecessarily harmed by toxic medicines, herbicides and brain-damaging mercury in vaccines because they are being denied the “other side of the story” that’s censored by the corporate-controlled media. By censoring Natural News, Google is, in effect, siding with the criminal pharmaceutical industry that has been charged with multiple felony crimes and caught bribing doctors, fraudulently altering scientific studies, conducting medical experiments on children and price fixing their drugs to maximize profits.

In effect, censorship of Natural News is part of the establishment’s war on humanity which includes depopulation measures (Bill Gates), covert infertility vaccines, corporate-run media disinfo campaigns and a full-on assault against scientific truth and free speech conducted in the public interest.

Wow. Natural News is the one Truth™ in the world of science. Actually, Natural News is the one Truth™ in pseudoscience. And this man has an ego worthy of Donald Trump.

Speaking of which:

It’s clear to me that Natural News is being targeted primarily because of our support for President Trump and his review of vaccine safety. It is now apparent that any person who engages in real science, critical thinking or any attempt to protect children from the brain damaging effects of mercury in vaccines is going to be silenced, discredited, smeared and blacklisted. This is an astonishing realization about the depths of total corruption in society today and how the medical cartels control information to maximize their profits off human suffering.

I have no clue why Google blacklisted Natural News. It may have been some SEO (search engine optimization) change by Google – the dark arts surrounding SEO is only understood by secretive wizards who try to explain to mortals like me. The blacklisting may be permanent, or it may be temporary. There are literally dozens of reasons that cause Google to remove a website from it’s search results – bad spelling and grammar, fake links, and many others. But it has absolutely nothing to do with President Trump and his possible review of vaccine safety.

Mike Adams narcissistic tendencies regarding his website overlooks the primary reason why it may have been blacklisted – Google insists on providing medical search results that are scientifically reliable. There is absolutely nothing scientifically reliable about the pseudoscience presented in Natural News.

 

Mike Adams whines again

I don’t know now how many stories on Natural News have been written this morning about how evil Google has treated the website, but this one caught my eye: “Breaking: Mike Adams and Alex Jones Taken Down by Google / CIA Prior to Big Event: Trump Needs to Beware.” Yup, Google is in cahoots with the CIA to suppress fake news (and fake science) websites.

The delusional Mike Adams goes for all the gusto in this post:

Late last night, I recorded an emergency interview with Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show. In that 45-minute interview, I revealed why I think the Google / CIA “take down” of InfoWars and Natural News is a prelude to a massive event being planned to take out President Trump.

The censorship of the Independent Media has begun in earnest by Jeff Bezos and Google.

Wait what? Jeff Bezos, chairman of Amazon and owner of the Washington Post is part of the conspiracy against Natural News? With the CIA? Wow, Mike Adams has a considerable imagination. He should go into writing fiction. Oh, wait.

But this gets more laughable in ways that you could not imagine:

Many will think, for example, that Adams was targeted because of his fine work in exposing the dangers associated with vaccines which is big business for many of the elite (eg Bill Gates). However, Mike has been exposing this information for years without suffering these kinds of illegal intimidation and anti-trust actions by Google. What do Alex and Mike have in common that would cause these people to act with such reckless abandon? The answer can be summed up in one word, Pizzagate.

One must consider the fact that both Alex Jones and Mike Adams have been among the leaders in exposing Pizzagate and linking this heinous criminal enterprise with very prominent people. Names are beginning to be named and no doubt, Mike Adams and Alex Jones would be among the first to strike blows in this arena by naming prominent politicians. We fully know that we are days and weeks away from these revelations. The Common Sense Show is beginning to receive names of the participants.

For those of you who don’t follow this type of nonsense, Pizzagate is a fake story about Hillary Clinton, a Washington DC pizza restaurant, and satanic symbols and other nonsense. Apparently, Mike Adams exposed a fake story, so the CIA, Google and Jeff Bezos are taking him down.

I’ve kind of ignored the alt-right, because they’re not my kind of people. But they really are deplorables on just about any scale of deplorability.

Adams then concludes his rant with this statement:

The recent actions by the CIA and Google serve to inhibit any Pizzagate prosecution at the highest levels of corporate and political power. To ensure the investigations stop, the Trump administration must be neutered and the best way to do that would be to cut the head off of the snake and that means to assassinate Donald Trump.  This is their only play. Protests, riots and incessant media lies have not derailed the Trump machine. We are witnessing the absolute desperation of the Deep State and Mike Adams and Alex Jones are caught up in the continued concealment of heinous crimes of prominent people protected by the Deep State.

Wow. The neurotic and overblown language is impressive – so he’s no longer being blocked by Google because of his outing the massive conspiracy about medicine, but it’s all about pizza. Ok then.

Well, whatever Google’s reasons may be for blacklisting Natural News, I don’t care. I know it probably won’t be permanent. But I am enjoying it. No more news about fake Zika virus cures at the top of the listings.

As Orac puts it, “I am, however, very much enjoying my schadenfreude, and will continue to do so as long as Adams’ site is delisted and he continues his tirades against Google and his victimhood conspiracies.”

Yeah, that. I’m just happy that Google blacklisted Natural News. Let’s hope it lasts.
