Money can cover up truth on the web

On The Tap this year, all of Ben Fellows revelations concerning Ken Clarke, Andrew Lloyd-Webber and others were forcibly removed by Google.  Ben’s been nobbled.  

Google: Surge in pressure from govts to DELETE CHUNKS of the web

Libelous book about MP among stuff pulled offline

Governments, judges, cops and politicians are continuing to lobby Google to tear down online material critical of their operations, we’re told.
Today, the advertising giant said that, in the first six months of 2013, it received 3,846 demands from public officials to remove 24,737 personal blog posts, YouTube videos and other pieces of content it hosts. That’s up 68 per cent on the second half of 2012.
And according to the web giant, which has just published its latest transparency report, 93 requests focused on content that was critical of people in public office. Defamation and copyright infringement were often cited, but less than one third of the highlighted material was removed in the first half of 2013.
“Over the past four years, one worrying trend has remained consistent: governments continue to ask us to remove political content,” wrote Google legal director Susan Infantino, who called out Turkey and Russia for ramping up the number of complaints.
“Judges have asked us to remove information that’s critical of them, police departments want us to take down videos or blogs that shine a light on their conduct, and local institutions like town councils don’t want people to be able to find information about their decision-making processes,” she added.
In the US, Google said that it saw requests for content removal up 70 per cent over last year. Notable cases include the removal of 76 apps from the Google Play store over alleged infringements of government copyrights and the denied takedown request from a local official who sought to remove pages outlining his record as a police officer.
In the UK, Google said it shot down a request from a local government council to take down a critical website, and upheld a request to pull a preview from a book that alleged illegal activity by an unnamed member of Parliament.
The report is the latest in a transparency program that Google is soon hoping to expand. The company has petitioned the US government to allow it to post information and notifications relating to FISA takedown requests. Thus far the requests have not been granted.

    Just one of many. Youtube censored the pilot saying “Chemtrails are a necessary evil”.

    Vimeo still shows his face. The Tap was able to show the full version earlier this year, but not any more. Download this stuff now. The Ministry of Truth wants to delete it!

    I leave comments under videos on YT, always to raise awareness about geo-engineering and microwave radiation. When I am signed in I can see my comments, however when I sigh out and look at the comments under the videos I left them on they are not there. This has happened only weeks ago and I don’t know how they have blocked me.

    It’s clear to anyone who cares to look that Ben was making things up, e.g.

    – going to the US indy media (Alex Jones https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imVz2Xbf5fU) and claiming to be blowing the whistle about Olympics security FOUR WEEKS AFTER the story was broken in the Daily Mail about a woman who had been sacked for blowing the whistle about Olympics security (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2153783/Whistleblower-sacked-speaking-G4S-cutting-corners-vetting-security-staff.html) (he then went on to describe himself as “THE” Olympics whistleblower),

    – alleging that Ken Clarke told him the 4 in G4S shared the same key on the keyboard as the $ sign in 1994 (http://the-tap.blogspot.be/2013/06/ben-fellows-writes-direct-to-ken-clarke.html), when G4S wasn’t created until 10 YEARS AFTER Ben’s alleged encounter with Clarke (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G4S),

    – claiming that he’d received a phone call from a masked man standing outside his house threatening to kill him in the same way as Lee Rigby on the day of Lee Rigby’s murder AND NAMING THE WRONG DAY (said Thursday, when it was a Wednesday) only a week after the supposed threatening phone call (24:50 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiSBYsK1iMk).

    There was money in his abuse stories, as he was raising money via Gofundme in the summer of 2013 for a campaigning walk to London against “corruption”.

    As expected a Ben fellows trashing campaign across the net to accompany the legal shenanigans going on. If you saw the videos he put out before Google took them down, they were entirely convincing. The sustem bites back hard against those who puncture their defences.

  8. Anonymous says:

    YouTube is still full of his videos, including the police interviews. He definitely seemed plausible. He would have been convincing if (1) he hadn’t been chatting so merrily on the subject, sometimes smiling and even laughing (very different manner to abuse victims interviewed elsewhere) and (2) he hadn’t had the above holes in his stories.
