The Conservative Treehouse is "De-Platformed" by WordPress

"Most CTH readers are likely aware of the term “deplatforming.”  Unfortunately the big tech control mechanism to shut down speech & assembly has now arrived on our doorstep.

One week after the 2020 presidential election, The Conservative Treehouse received the following notification:

    …”given the incompatibility between your site’s content and our terms, you need to find a new hosting provider and must migrate the site by Wednesday, December 2nd....

...What was our violation?  After ten years of brutally honest discussion, opinion, deep research and crowdsourcing work -with undeniable citations on the events we outline- there is no cited violation of any term of service because CTH has never violated one.

The WordPress company is not explaining the reason for deplatforming because there is no justifiable reason for it.  At the same time they are bold in their position. Perhaps this is the most alarming part; and everyone should pay attention. They don’t care.

Truthful assembly is now the risk.  CTH is now too big; with a site reach of 500,000 to a million unique readers each day; and with well over 200,000 subscribers; our assembly too large, too influential, and presents a risk… we guard the flickering flame.

Ten years of work assembling a library of factual citations and explanations of those discoveries, positions CTH to be a leading force in the rebel alliance push-back.  [Heck, that’s why this place was started… that was our purpose: “The Truth Has No Agenda.”]  However, that also makes us a target; hence the deplatforming.

Accepting -at its core- this move is all about politics, this is yet another reference point in the tenuous nature of where we stand.   There’s no hate-speech on this website; there’s no graphic, violent, foul or abusive speech here.  The ‘content‘ of the Treehouse is the same discussion that happens around your kitchen table or back porch discussion with friends.  We would never cheapen or insult that conversation with vulgarity because that’s not who we are… because that’s not who our nation is.   So consider this next part very carefully…

The ‘content’ is not compatible with WordPress, the worlds largest website and blog hosting service.  The content within the largest blog on that global platform is what has become troublesome.  “The content”....

Beware!  The Deep State is at work through its minions to shut down free speech and information.

The Free Republic has been forced to migrate to a different web host:

Free Republic will be down all night tonight for migration. Will be going down at 8:00 pm (Pacific) and should up again within about 12 hours.

Sorry, can't be helped. We received notice from our provider that they were closing their San Jose data center on May 15, 2021 and that we could move our equipment to their new center when it's ready.

We thought we'd have months to prepare, but they recently moved the deadline up to Nov 15 (tomorrow).

John scrambled and has a new home set up for us and is going to get a clean backup tonight and install it at our new location. Should be up and running by morning. Our IP address will be new, but hopefully everything else will remain the same.

Btw, the only backup site we have at this time is free republic on facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/26012226159 ) and its days are numbered. They're busily pulling many of our posts daily now and I think they're getting ready to pull our plug.


I'll past progress messages on our home page ( https://freerepublic.com/home.htm ) from time to time tonight as long as the server at our old location is up.

Then, hopefully, we'll be on the new.

Prayers up."


Coincidence that this is happening right now?

This is the grand scheme of the left coming to fruition.  Whatever they don't want to ban, they wish to make mandatory.

Amen!  Dr. "Fauxci's" comment about how Americans are too independent and need to learn obedience is right in their agenda!

From The Conservative Treehouse, currently under attack by WordPress and Automattic  (Sic, a company helping the censorship of anti-Communist content):

Quote


Over the Thanksgiving holiday, WordPress/Automattic disabled CTH’s ability to filter, review or disable vulgar content on our site. Given the unwarranted, pre-textual de-platforming of CTH by the pro-censorship board of Automattic, CTH cannot ignore that such manipulation is (designed) to maliciously interfere and damage the reputation of CTH.

Because of Automattic’s purposeful actions, we have been forced to monitor every site comment in real time for appropriate content over the past 48 hours and remove content that seems purposefully targeted to tarnish our reputation and public image. CTH expects to be Back to normal functionality in 30 hours. Thanks for bearing with us, and thank you for your first hand witness of the tactics of deplatforming and censorship in America.

We are chomping-at-the-bit to get back in this fight for our nation; and do not think for one moment we are not aware our specific targeting was purposefully timed to disrupt our research ability.  We know exactly what Big Tech and the left-wing political operatives executed.  They know that we know; and when we know – YOU KNOW.


My emphasis above.
