Call me crazy [otherwise known as a free-thinker], as the Gov undoubtedly will as well as their paid dominions of blog army trolls...
Not sure if it is just me or not, but it seems there are two White House websites running, one in the shadow of the other. When I do a search on the WH website for this petition, it claims no such thing. Yet, when I use the link provided in the Higgins article, I get sent right to the petition. Then I looked at the web addresses provided and find that they are almost identical looking, but just with transposed address naming conventions:
Higgins link to WH and naming convention from article: [https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/!/petition] Regular WH petition page link from search engine: [https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petitions]
If I use the link above and shorten the link from Higgin's article by way of Verbellum to the "petitions" page, I get an error message and construction apology in a nice blue tone:
Yet, if i go directly into the WH website and make my way to the [petitions] page, I not only see the address is slightly different, also there is no petition with this title. It makes me think that there is a bit of a psyop running here if true - having hopefull researchers sign-away on the back site with little noticeable difference in addresses as to placate the masses of 9/112 researchers, while the official [petitions] page has no mention of it for the regular folk. It is just a quick assessment that caught my eye, could be a "mistake" by WH staff in linking pages, but until then, I'll keep one eye open.
Sott.net, the alternative news site based in France, continues to be harassed by the French police. Employees have been repeatedly hauled off for “interrogation” -- and often held for long hours without being offered so much as a glass of water. The following note and article re this troubling development is from the editor, Laura Knight-Jadczyk (wife of renowned theoretical physicist Arkadiusz Jadczyk), who’s under threat of arrest at this very moment, all under ludicrous trumped-up charges. And all for what? For informing their readers of the Grand Deception...the reality that lies behind the veil...
This come right on the heals of Activist Post being shut down by Google without warning - story at bottom of article.
We've just had a long conversation with our new lawyer: Philippe PEROLLIER. His advice: refuse to cooperate, force them to detain one or all of us, then continue to refuse to cooperate so that the French authorities are forced to bring an official charge.
The reason: a "preliminary" investigation can be prolonged indefinitely with no charges, just ongoing harassment. He says this is apparently what they are doing; sort of like trying to break people down by stalking them. Also, as long as it is preliminary, we are not entitled to see ANY documents or complaints against us nor is our lawyer. Also, our lawyer is not permitted to be present unless there is a formal charge. Plus, they can deny that there is an investigation at all, that they have interviewed anyone, and can trash anything they have, or re-write statements, and have been known to do so.
Finally, since they have passed the point of decency in their interrogations and have revealed their bias, we have the moral right to refuse to continue to cooperate. (We'll be publishing accounts of the interrogations as soon as they are written up.)
If we refuse to be questioned, they have to apply to a judge for an order to detain (arrest). The downside is that one or more of us may have to spend a bit of time in a French prison/jail. The upside is, if we continue to refuse to cooperate (which is the plan), then they have to apply to the judge to bring charges so they can prosecute, otherwise, they can't keep us in jail indefinitely.
