Why didn’t California’s vaccine mandate stop the measles?

On June 30, 2015, then-California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law the infamous Senate Bill 277, an authoritarian legislative bill proudly sponsored and aggressively pushed by Senator Richard Pan of Sacramento that eliminated all vaccine exemptions throughout the Golden State, save for those considered to be medical in nature – meaning only licensed doctors are allowed to sign off on them.

Co-sponsored by Sen. Ben Allen of Redondo Beach, SB 277 was supposed to eliminate all measles outbreaks, or so we were told, like the one that occurred at Disneyland back in 2014, which Pan blamed on children who hadn’t been vaccinated with Merck & Co.’s MMR vaccine for measles, mumps, and rubella.

But if Pan’s claims about unvaccinated children causing measles outbreaks like this are actually true, then why is California right now experiencing what the mainstream media is describing as a “serious” measles outbreak, more than four years after SB 277 became law, that’s reportedly already led to at least two public college campuses having to quarantine their students and faculty?

According to official news reports, more than 200 students and faculty members just in the Southern California area have been confirmed to have measles, and all of them were recently ordered to stay home and avoid all contact with others – but how is this scenario even possible with Pan’s disease-preventing vaccine legislation in place?

The only reasonable and logical answer, of course, is that, even when vaccines are mandated basically at gunpoint, they don’t actually stop disease outbreaks. And in the case of measles, anyway, the MMR vaccine, which has repeatedly been shown to cause autism, doesn’t even work as claimed at preventing measles.

Merck is right now being sued for publishing fake efficacy data about its MMR vaccine
We now know that Merck has been falsifying vaccine safety and efficacy data for a very long time, publishing fake research data about the MMR vaccine, in particular suggesting that it provides some protection against measles, mumps and rubella, without causing harmful side effects.

In truth, however, the MMR vaccine doesn’t actually work, and isn’t at all safe, despite what fake news outlets, including Fox News, are now claiming in an attempt to scare the public into rushing out and getting jabbed with MMR.

Children’s Health Defense, a health freedom child advocacy group, is actually in the process of suing Merck over its falsified MMR data, which continues to harm and kill innocent children whose parents have been falsely led to believe that the MMR vaccine is both safe and effective – when it’s actually neither.

“If you’re wondering why so many people who were vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella are now being infected with the measles, you have to remember that Merck faked its MMR vaccine efficacy data by spiking human blood samples with animal antibodies, according to two former Merck employees who say they were ordered by Merck management to carry out the massive science fraud,” warns Mike Adams, the Health Ranger.

So-called “herd immunity” is a total fraud
Another massive science fraud being foisted on the masses is the concept of “herd immunity,” which maintains that vaccines only work if everybody gets them. Not only is such an idea completely preposterous from a medical standpoint, but it’s patently false in every way. Vaccines don’t even provide real immunity, it turns out, but rather temporary, or artificial, “immunity,” at best, that wanes over time, leaving patients susceptible to not only contracting future infections, but also spreading them.

This is exactly what we saw happen during the Disneyland measles outbreak, as only 14 percent of those affected were unvaccinated, according to a JAMA Pediatrics study. The other 86 percent of those who contracted measles at Disneyland had previously been vaccinated with MMR.

It’s important to also keep in mind that those who contract diseases like measles naturally obtain permanent, lifelong immunity once the disease subsides, which is what occurred for the 14 percent of unvaccinated people at Disneyland who contracted measles. The other 86 percent, on the other hand, not only weren’t protected against measles, but are now vaccine-damaged to the point where they’ll never have permanent immunity to measles, and will likely contract it again and again.

Fake news media constantly creates mass hysteria over disease “outbreaks” in order to push more vaccines that don’t work
But because millions of Americans still believe everything they’re told by corrupt politicians and the lying fake news media outlets and industries that control them, many folks are being successfully fear-mongered into getting themselves and their children vaccinated as a way to “protect” society against measles outbreaks – which isn’t even all that big of a deal, by the way, as it’s basically like contracting chickenpox.

Millions of Americans also remain woefully unaware of the fact that many vaccines, including MMR, are loaded with harmful adjuvants like aborted human fetal tissue and deadly chemicals – and that’s because many of them simply won’t read the manufacturer-issued ingredients lists that come with vaccines, and that are republished by the CDC, for themselves.

It’s a truly sad state of affairs where everyday folks who are fully capable of doing a little homework are refusing to do so, instead choosing to believe their favorite politicians and fake news media outlets that continue to claim that legitimate safety and efficacy concerns about vaccines are just “Jenny McCarthy-inspired conspiracy theories.”

NYT editorial argues that extinction of the human race would be good for planet Earth

NYT editorial argues that extinction of the human race would be good for planet Earth

https://www.depopulation.news/2019-01-07-nyt-editorial-argues-extinction-of-humans-good-for-planet-earth.html

01/07/2019 / By Vicki Batts

The mainstream media is now trying to “normalize” the depopulation agenda. In a recent NYT editorial, Would Human Extinction Be a Tragedy?, Clemson University professor Todd May argues that the end of humanity wouldn’t be so bad after all. The left-wing has been using the global warming narrative to conjure up fear about imminent human extinction for years now, but declaring that the end of humanity would be good for the planet is taking the global depopulation agenda to a whole new level.

It would seem that the left-wing media is now launching the next phase of this grand extinction scheme. By publishing the opinion of Mr. Todd May, The New York Times is at the very least showing that this point of view is worthy of such a lofty platform, if not a full-blown endorsement. As Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, recently reported, there are many, many signs that the “extermination agenda” has already begun — and with headlines like Mays’ NYT piece floating around, it’s clear that the media is trying to push depopulation as the new “normal.”

What starts off as a “fringe” idea can very quickly become mainstream thought, if its publicized the right way. And it looks like the globalist Left is moving towards adopting depopulation as the next big thing on the party line.
NYT editorial says human extinction is “good”

In a recent opinion piece for the Times, Mr. Todd Mays states, “Human beings are destroying large parts of the inhabitable earth and causing unimaginable suffering to many of the animals that inhabit it.” He notes that humans are destroying the Earth through at least three different means: Factory farming and animal suffering, climate change, and an increasing human population. None of these things are going away any time soon, Mays contends.

“Humanity, then, is the source of devastation of the lives of conscious animals on a scale that is difficult to comprehend,” the chemistry professor states.

Throughout the article, Mays compares and contrasts the sins of humanity against the greatness our species has also managed to achieve, asking if the things some select humans have accomplished have been worth the price our planet has been forced to pay.

While Mays does not come to an official conclusion on the matter, he does state, “It may well be, then, that the extinction of humanity would make the world better off and yet would be a tragedy.”
Advancing the depopulation agenda

As writer Michael Snyder notes, Mays’ arguments also seem to insinuate that only cultures which have contributed something worthwhile are worth preserving. While other academics have pointed to population control or population reduction, Mays is jumping straight to total extinction.

In a recent article, Mike Adams, founder of Natural News and creator of Brighteon.com, revealed that many of the events happening in our world today are tied to one ultimate cause: Ending humanity. Adams writes:

Inescapably, a core feature of everything happening today is an anti-human agenda to exterminate humankind. Every major trend taking place today is preparing humankind for a mass extermination event, making sure humans cannot fight back, think for themselves or even reproduce.

Adams points to the aggressive calls to disarm citizens, cultural attacks on fertility and masculinity, poisoning of the food supply and other key issues as signs that there is a plan to take down the human race — and it’s already been put into action.

Radical plan to artificially cool Earth’s climate could be safe, study finds
Experts worry that injecting sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere could put some regions at risk

Study co-author says: ‘There is the possibility that solar geoengineering could really substantially reduce climate risks for the most vulnerable.’

A new study contradicts fears that using solar geoengineering to fight climate change could dangerously alter rainfall and storm patterns in some parts of the world.

Published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Climate Change, the analysis finds that cooling the Earth enough to eliminate roughly half of warming, rather than all of it, generally would not make tropical cyclones more intense or worsen water availability, extreme temperatures or extreme rain. Only a small fraction of places, 0.4%, might see climate change impacts worsened, the study says.

Many climate experts have warned that cooling the Earth but keeping twice as much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as before industrialization could put some regions at risk.

One scientist who read the paper published on Monday said it was not comprehensive enough to conclude that solar geoengineering – most likely involving spraying sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere, thereby mimicking gas from volcanoes and reflecting the sun’s heat – would be safe.

Some climate advocacy groups argue that banking on an unproven technology could hamstring efforts to reduce carbon dioxide still spewing from power plants and cars.

But study co-author David Keith, a Harvard professor who works in engineering and public policy, said researchers should not rule out geoengineering yet.

“I am not saying we know it works and we should do it now,” he said. “Indeed, I would absolutely oppose deployment now. There’s still only a little group of people looking at this, there’s lots of uncertainty.”

Keith said the study’s main message was that “there is the possibility that solar geoengineering could really substantially reduce climate risks for the most vulnerable”.

The findings come as Nairobi hosts a United Nations Environment Programme meeting on limiting climate change. A UN-approved report last year – the 1.5 degree report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – said that geoengineering by injecting sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere may be necessary but would come with major uncertainties.

Keith hopes to dispel what he believes may be unsupported worries. Another scientist, however, said he was overstating the new study’s findings.

The analysis used climate modeling to project what could happen if the heat of the sun was turned down. Alan Robock, a geophysics professor and researcher at Rutgers University in New Jersey, said it did not examine the potential effects of doing that with the most likely method: spraying aerosols into the atmosphere.

“They focus in this paper on temperature and water availability in different regions,” Robock said. “Those are only two things that would change with stratospheric aerosols.” He added that previous studies have made similar conclusions.

Robock said one of his studies contains a list of 27 reasons why Earth-cooling aerosols might be a bad idea. And he added that the technology could cost hundreds of billions of dollars a year and would pose complicated ethical questions, such as whether people have a right to see a blue sky.

“We’re not able right now to say whether, if global warming continues, we should ever decide to start spraying this stuff into the stratosphere,” Robock said. “Would solar-radiation management, would geoengineering make it more dangerous or less dangerous?

“That’s the question we have to answer, and we don’t have enough information.”

ALERT: Twitter blocks all Natural News / Health Ranger channels after Adams comments on the Jack Dorsey / Joe Rogan Bitcoin fraud

Joe-Rogan-Jack-Dorsey
Image: ALERT: Twitter blocks all Natural News / Health Ranger channels after Adams comments on the Jack Dorsey / Joe Rogan Bitcoin fraud

Thursday, February 07, 2019 by: Mike Adams
https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-07-twitter-blocks-all-natural-news-health-ranger-channels-joe-rogan-jack-dorsey-bitcoin.html

(Natural News) Mere hours after I appeared on the Alex Jones Show yesterday to reveal the truth about Jack Dorsey’s criminal fronting for Bitcoin and deep state money laundering, Twitter suspended all Health Ranger / Natural News accounts without explanation, simultaneously, mere hours after my appearance on Alex’s show.

Importantly, the Health Ranger Twitter account (twitter.com/healthranger) tweets news stories that are more than 95% focused on health, nutrition, medicine, food science and similar topics. There is absolutely nothing in the HealthRanger twitter feed that could justify being banned by Twitter. It’s clear this censorship order came from the top and was initiated to punish me for appearing on the Alex Jones Show.

As I mentioned on the show (see video below), Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, recently appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience, hyping Bitcoin as the currency that would take over the internet. According to Hacked.com, Joe Rogan is being paid off to the tune of $300,000 per month via the Cash mobile app — owned by Twitter, of course.

During the Joe Rogan interview, Joe utterly failed to ask Dorsey any tough questions at all, and the entire interview turned into an apparent fraud fest of “pump and dump” front men (Dorsey and Rogan) pushing a massive crypto scheme onto Rogan’s listeners, utterly without disclosing the severe conflicts of interest held by both Rogan and Dorsey. “In a version of what could have been an SEC enforcer’s wet-dream, we have the CEO of a Bitcoin-specific payment app talking up the potential of Bitcoin, on a podcast which he also pays to advertise said payment app,” reports Hacked.com.

What Dorsey and Rogan also failed to mention is that Jack Dorsey is an investor in the Lightning Labs project that’s working to push a new protocol onto Bitcoin. Thus, Dorsey has a huge financial stake in the future success of Bitcoin. As I pointed out in my interview, Bitcoin is a creation of the deep state that is used to surreptitiously transmit payoffs and bribes to left-wing Democrats, for example, who are being bribed by Mexican drug cartels to oppose the border wall.

Apparently, Jack Dorsey does not want any independent journalist talking about the criminal dark side of Bitcoin, since he’s pumping it up with the help of (paid off) Rogan.

In banning Natural News / Health Ranger accounts, Twitter did not cite any reason at all, utterly failing to points out any tweets that violated Twitter community guidelines. It’s clear that Natural News / Health Ranger Twitter accounts were banned solely because Adams appeared on the Alex Jones Show and dared to comment on the Joe Rogan / Jack Dorsey Bitcoin fraud.

Watch the full episode in this Brighteon video. I join Alex at 38:18, and the comments on Jack Dorsey and Joe Rogan take place a few minutes later:

Brighteon.com/5999398886001

Joe Rogan and Jack Dorsey appear to be running a massive financial fraud scheme and using censorship to silence whistleblowers
What’s clear in my mind from recent events is that Joe Rogan and Jack Dorsey are running a massive crypto fraud scheme while using the power of censorship to silence whistleblowers who are exposing their giant con. As Hacked.com reports:

Criticism of the Bitcoin core narrative was being censored on Reddit long before the hammer fell on the likes of Alex Jones. Dorsey’s vision of a future Bitcoin-dominated internet doesn’t address this point; and it’s a point that only seems more scandalous in light of Twitter’s similar predilection for censoring those who deviate from accepted scripts.

Jack Dorsey is just one of many tech giant CEOs that has now turned to the tyranny of censorship to silence critics for off-platform behavior. Twitter has not cited any violations of community guidelines as justification for suspending the Natural News / Health Ranger accounts. Instead, the actions were taken solely due to my appearance on the Alex Jones Show.

I think Jack Dorsey is running a massive financial fraud scheme, and he’s paying off people like Joe Rogan to shill for his crypto profit schemes while selectively silencing anyone who might raise legitimate questions about the dishonesty and deception of his entire operation.

As more and more people are now noticing, the tech giants that dominate the world are now quite literally being run by financial fraudsters and censorship goons who despise freedom of expression precisely because independent journalists are exposing their frauds and cons. Any independent journalist who attempts to warn the public and expose the truth about the massive Bitcoin crypto con is targeted for selective censorship and defamation. Meanwhile, techno-schemers like Dorsey funnel money to front men like Joe Rogan to keep pushing the propaganda that hypes up their personal enrichment Ponzi schemes.

It’s sick. It’s even criminal, according to SEC rules. When will the SEC raid the offices of Jack Dorsey and Joe Rogan and charge them with securities violations for pushing a massive financial fraud, completely absent any honest financial disclosures are required by regulatory authorities? If Rogan and Dorsey were pumping Wall Street stocks in the same manner, they would have already been arrested and charged with securities fraud. Why do they get a free pass when they’re pumping the very same crypto con that has already caused innocent participants around the world to lose hundreds of millions of dollars?

STOP eating or drinking ‘diet’ products: The artificial sweetener found inside can destroy brain function

https://www.naturalhealth365.com/artificial-sweetener-dementia-2821.html

artificial-sweetener(NaturalHealth365) According to the great physicist, Albert Einstein, insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Well, in the case of diet soda or other products that use an artificial sweetener, millions of consumers hope to lose weight or ‘get healthy’ by drinking these products, yet end up ruining their health.

The reason is simple: research shows that aspartame – the main and most popular type of artificial sweetener on the market – causes oxidative stress in the brain, a dangerous type of cell damage associated with inflammation, accelerated aging, and chronic disease.

Editor’s note: If you have any doubt about the dangers of aspartame – which is used in MANY diet products, I urge you to look (and listen) to this epic podcast. (shocking details!)

Consuming any artificial sweetener will INCREASE your risk of brain problems, according to research
In a 2017 study published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary, and Alternative Medicines, researchers discovered some disturbing data: the level of brain neurotransmitters serotonin, GABA, and dopamine were reduced in rats who had been fed aspartame compared to a control group.

Additionally, the aspartame-fed rats had higher levels of norepinephrine (a stress hormone) and acetylcholine and lower levels of brain antioxidant activity.

Based on their data, the authors concluded that consuming aspartame disrupts normal neurochemical function and causes oxidative damage to brain cells. They also pointed out that the effects of aspartame were dose-dependent – meaning that the more artificial sweetener consumed, the greater the negative effects.

This should be a major warning bell, especially when we realize that at least 20% of Americans consume diet soda every day, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And it’s not just soft drinks: remember that aspartame is also things like gum, candy, diet fruit juice, and yogurt!

Diet soda drinkers will probably NOT like this message, but it’s just the truth
Of course, this isn’t the only study (by a long shot) that shows how aspartame is hazardous to your health. We already reported on findings from the famed Framingham Heart Study Offspring cohort, which assessed dietary habits of over 4,372 participants.

This study showed that people who consumed even just ONE can or bottle of a diet soft drink had nearly TRIPLE the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

And another 2014 study published in PLOS One found that while rats fed with aspartame had lower body masses, they also had disrupted gut bacteria, higher blood sugar, and increased insulin resistance…yet somehow, people are supposed to believe drinking diet soda is good for people with diabetes!

Other research on animal models has also shown that aspartame is carcinogenic, too…rings a bell?

Two other types of artificial sweetener (cyclamate, aka Sucaryl, and saccharin, aka Sweet’N Low) were pulled off the market back in the 1970s because lab test showed they cause cancer in animals.

Yet somehow American consumers are supposed to believe that any other artificial sweetener is ‘perfectly safe.’ Let’s be real: if it walks like a duck, looks like a duck, and sounds like a duck…you get the idea.

Besides, aspartame is 200 times sweetener than sugar and can keep you in the food craving trap even worse than real sugar (which still isn’t a good choice, by the way).

Your best bet: avoid artificial sweeteners. If you need to satisfy your sweet tooth, opt for natural alternatives instead, including Stevia, organic local raw honey, and blackstrap molasses.

Roundup ingredient found in Cheerios, Quaker Oats, and other cereals

Roundup ingredient found in Cheerios, Quaker Oats, and other cereals
By Editor August 16, 2018
http://www.theeventchronicle.com/editors-pick/roundup-ingredient-found-in-cheerios-quaker-oats-and-other-cereals/

Days after a California jury awarded a school groundskeeper more than $289 million in damages after he claimed Monsanto’s best-selling weedkiller Roundup gave him cancer, the controversial ingredient – glyphosate — has been detected in popular kids’ breakfast cereals, including Cheerios, Lucky Charms and Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, according to an activist group.

Lab tests conducted by the left-leaning Environmental Working Group (EWG), a nonprofit advocacy group that specializes in toxic chemicals and corporate accountability, indicated almost three-fourths of the 45 food products tested detected high levels of glyphosate, which has been identified as a “probable carcinogen” by the World Health Organization in 2015.

But makers of the foods EWG tested said they and their suppliers operate within U.S. government safety guidelines and dismissed the group’s findings as irrelevant.

However, many EWG scientists consider levels higher than 160 parts per billion of glyphosate above the safety threshold for children.

What’s more, about one-third of the 16 samples made with organically grown oats also had glyphosate, but at levels below EWG’s benchmark.

Popular children items, including General Mills’ Cheerios Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal, Lucky Charm’s, Kellogg’s Cracklin’ Oat Bran and Quaker’s Old Fashioned Oats, all had levels exceeding EWG’s safety guidelines.

But while those products exceeded the EWG’s threshold, they still fall within the EPA’s regulations, many food brands said.

In a statement to FOX Business regarding the report, a General Mills’ spokesperson says, “Our products are safe and without questions they meet regulatory safety levels.”

“The EPA has researched this issue and has set rules that we follow as do farmers who grow crops including wheat and oats. We continue to work closely with farmers, our suppliers and conservation organizations to minimize the use of pesticides on the crops and ingredients we use in our foods,” General Mills added.

Quaker also released a statement following the report, saying it does not add glyphosate during any part of the milling process,” and “glyphosate is commonly used by farmers across the industry who apply it pre-harvest.” Kellogg’s issued a similar statement, saying its food is safe and they follow the EPA’s strict standards for safely levels of these agricultural residues “and the ingredients we purchase from suppliers for our foods fall under these limits.”

The report come days after a jury at the Superior Court of California awarded $289 million in damages to Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, a San Francisco school groundskeeper that claimed Roundup caused him to developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma after using the spray for more than two years.

Jurors concluded that Monsanto’s Roundup and Ranger Pro products did present a “substantial danger” to Johnson and that the company, which is now owned by Bayer, knew or should have known about the potential risks of the products posed.

Johnson’s case is the first of a long list of about 4,000 people looking to sue the weed-and-seed maker for similar allegations.

Monsanto, however, says it plans to appeal the court’s decision and the verdict “does not change the fact that more than 800 scientific studies and reviews – and conclusions by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. National Institutes of Health and regulatory authorities around the world – support the fact that glyphosate does not cause cancer, and did not cause Mr. Johnson’s cancer.”

In response to EWG’s report, a Monsanto spokesperson said, “Even at the highest level reported by the EWG (1,300 ppb), an adult would have to eat 118 pounds of the food item every day for the rest of their life to reach the EPA’s limit.”

“Of course, nobody eats close to that much food! Using oatmeal as an example, 118 pounds would equal 228 servings or 3,658 percent of the daily recommended intake of fiber. These numbers translate to 9 ½ servings every hour without sleep for a person’s entire life,” Monsanto said.

Yet, Olga Naidenko, Ph.D., and senior science adviser for the EWG, says the bottom line is that glyphosate does not belong in children’s food and that recent biomonitoring studies show detectable levels of the ingredient in people’s urine, which likely comes from dietary exposure.

“And tests show that glyphosate levels in American’s bodies have been rising over time,” she says.

Despite legal threat, new anti-Facebook site launches to claim tech giant is ‘killing the internet’

A new anti-Facebook blog, giving small and mid-sized publishers a place to vent their frustrations over the tech giant’s censorship policies and algorithms hiding their content, has gone live despite legal threats.

FacebookZoo, hosted on niche publishing platform Maven, went live on Tuesday. It aims to give disgruntled publishers an avenue to criticize the company’s censorship policy, as well as outline how its “ever-changing algorithms” have drastically affected their livelihoods in favor of shareholder profit.

The blog has already survived an attempt by Facebook’s legal team to shut it down. The attempt failed to go anywhere as Maven had the foresight to trademark ‘FacebookZoo’ while it was in beta mode, according to the New York Post.

Facebook’s legal representative known only as ‘Ethel’ wrote to Maven, saying: “Your unauthorized use of the Facebook name is likely to cause confusion as to whether you or your company’s activities are authorized, endorsed, or sponsored by Facebook when, in fact, they are not.”

Ethel also warned Maven that in order to avoid “consumer confusion” and “harm” to Facebook’s brand, it should “stop using the name and domain facebookzoo.com and disable any site available at that address.”

Since going live, FacebookZoo has had a slew of content creators air their grievances, following complaints that Facebook’s new algorithms had slashed their customer base and ad revenues earlier this year.

One cause for concern was artists working hard to build a following on social media platforms without remuneration, and when it was monetized, “Facebook had rules in place,” to control who made money, according to Greg Watkins and Chuck Creekmur of AllHipHop.com.

Asking artists why they were willing to give their content away for free on social media platform, Greg Watkins said the pair regularly told artists: “We actually represent what you’re doing and you’re making all these guys billionaires by giving it to them with the hope that at some point you may be able to reach an audience.”Delete

“The thing is, we’re all slaves at the end of the day, right? To Facebook, to YouTube,” writes Alicé Anil, a political commentator and satirist, who noticed a radical drop in follower engagement after Facebook ‘tweaked’ its algorithms.

“The moment that they decide to change their algorithm, we are f*****… Our business model has been completely jeopardized just because of a single decision that was made,” she added.

Facebook’s censorship policy is another issue tackled by the site. Boyce Watkins, founder of Black Business School, said her page was “killed” by a “Facebook bot” just as it approached a million likes.

Aimed at promoting “economic intelligence and financial literacy amongst Black communities,” Black Business School was earning $250,000 a year from Facebook, however someone quoting Malcolm X in a post saw the page pulled without warning and suspended for two years.

“They’re bullies,” Watkins said. “We could not even get anyone on the phone to find out why we were suspended.”

Facebook claims that its algorithm change, which favored friends and family over media sites, was a way to get back to its roots as a site that connected people.
