10 thoughts on “Twitter Has Blocked Us; No Way to Send a Message

  1. I don’t use twitter so I’m a bit of a Luddite with the mechanics. Do you know why it was blocked or who blocked it? Was it Twitter itself, some kind of hack or just an accident?

    In any case, good luck and cheers on a great site!


    • I went over to your site. I like the essay on the rebellion of the bishops against this current pope. I have never seen a real explanation for Benedict’s decision to step down. There’s a cui bono factor in that whole process that none of us knows. Obviously, though, Benedict was not a Communist, he knew his history and was an excellent theologian. Francis is a deep disappointment.


      • From what I can gather, the Jesuits are at the bottom of what is happening in the Roman Catholic church and it’s not good.

  2. I haven’t seen the following updates on the Lars Vilks/Copenhagen synagogue attacks on GoV yet. My source for them is Die Welt (http://www.welt.de/politik/ausland/article137462049/Anschlag-ist-ein-Akt-des-Terrorismus.html), in German. The Google translation of the entire article 9http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=http://www.welt.de/politik/&prev=search) is a bit rough, but I’ll provide a couple of new-ish developments. All translations within parentheses are mine.

    –One person has been taken into custody by Danish authorities. (“Kurze Zeit spaeter nahm die Polizei eine Person in der Naehe der Synagoge fest.” A short time later, the police arrested a person in the neighborhood of the Synagogue.)

    –The car used as an escape vehicle from the coffee house shooting has been recovered. (“Spaeter wurde der Wagen in Kopenhagen gefunden.” Later the car was found in Copenhagen.)

    –The Danish government was originally reluctant to categorize these attacks as politically motivated, but later reconsidered and spoke truth. (“Wenig spaeter sagte die daenische Ministerpraesidentin Helle Thorning-Schmidt jedoch, ‘alles deutet darauf hin, dass die Schuesse eine politisch motivierte Attacke darstellen und deswegen ein Act des Terrorismus sind.’ ” A little later the Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt said, however, “Everything seems to indicate that the shots represent a politically motivated attack and therefore are an act of terrorism.”)

    –A left-liberal politician also addressed would-be Muslim assassins. (“Die ehemalige dänische Ministerin und linksliberale Politikerin Ida Auken versuchte, an die Vernunft potentieller Attentäter zu appellieren. ‘Fanatiker, im Koran gibt es kein Verbot, Mohammed zu zeichnen. Lest Eure Heilige Schrift und hört auf, Euch verrückt zu benehmen.’ ” The former Danish minister and left-liberal politician Ida Auken attempted to appeal to the reason/common sense [Vernunft] of potential assassins. “Fanatics, there is no ban in the Koran/Quran against drawing Mohammed. Read your Holy Scripture and stop conducting yourselves insanely.”)

    I’m writing this at 2125 Saturday evening, 15 February, in California (PST). Right now it’s 0525 in Denmark, 16 February.

    So sorry that two good Danish people have lost their lives (so far) to this burst of yet more “verrückt” behavior by Islamists.

  3. For those British readers who have not seen the wonderful news – here it is : David Cameron says we must protect free speech . That’s it then chaps. Busy writing a letter slamming Islam which I will send to my MP and also hoping to see the no doubt up coming Mo Cartoon Fest at 10 Downing Street.

  4. Surprise! Google via Apple blocked your website last night. You had a link but that link never connected. It just hung when clicked. This was about 10 pm last night.

  5. Your Twitter account seems okay now, have they reinstated you? I do hope so. Good luck, you do very important work
