Free Press Under Attack: Obama Truth Teams Silence Free Speech
Websites that publish true and factual criticism of the Obama administration have now become “morally objectionable” and can be forced to close down. Such is what happened to private investigator Douglas Hagmann, who was told by ISP GoDaddy his site contained information that was “maliciously harmful to individuals in the government.”
Mr. Hagmann, is the CEO of Hagmann Investigative Services, Inc., a private investigative agency serving a roster of Fortune 500 clients. His website was given 48 hours by GoDaddy to find a new home before it was deleted.
As reported by Infowars…
“Hagmann was told the reason for the shut down was because the website featured “morally objectionable” material. After GoDaddy refused to identify the complainant, only saying that it was not “any official government agency,” further investigation by Hagmann revealed that the order came from a group tied to Obama campaign headquarters.
Speaking with the chief investigator in the GoDaddy Abuse division, Hagmann discovered, “Ultimately it was found that the complaint originated ostensibly with a group associated with the campaign to re-elect Barack Hussein Obama.”
Turning to his contacts within government, Hagmann then spoke with another source who confirmed that the ‘Obama Truth Team’ was responsible for the shut down order.
“I’m laying this right on the doorstep of the Obama Truth Team,” said Hagmann.
The ‘Obama Truth Team’ is an outreach of the Obama 2012 re-election campaign that urges supporters to “help fight back against the attacks on President Obama and his record” by reporting supposed misrepresentations and lies. However, as ABC News reported…
The ‘Truth Team’ has mis-characterized legitimate criticism as smears in an effort to chill dissent against Obama. It has also been caught fibbing on a number of other occasions. The same methods of intimidation were also very much in force during the 2008 campaign season. Under the guise of the ‘Obama Truth Squad’, influential public figures in Missouri including St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, and Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, promised to “respond quickly, forcefully, and aggressively” to “lies” about Obama.
When trying to determine why his website was being punished Mr. Hagmann writes on his new web site www.homelandsecurityus.com
“In an attempt to determine the nature of my transgressions, I contacted the abuse department. I asked if it was a single complaint they received, or a series of complaints. I asked if they would identify the specific article or articles that spurred complaint(s). In short, I asked the representative to review their files so I could be provided with answers – answers I felt I deserved. The representative stated that there was not one specific article, but “it was the conclusion of the abuse department that the entirety of the my site contains published information they found to be morally objectionable.” After rephrasing the question in an effort to secure more specific information, the investigator finally became a bit short tempered and said that they made their decision and my site would be shut down for “morally objectionable content,” period. When I asked if they would provide me any information about the complainant, she said no.”
On the official Obama/Biden re-election web site has a Report an Attack page that reads…
“Received a robo-call or an email forward full of falsehoods? Found a misleading leaflet in your mail? Tell us about it, and help fight back against the attacks on President Obama and his record.”
Just for the record Mr. Hagmann, recently revealed that a contact within Homeland Security had told him that that Department of the government was essentially arming itself to fight the American People. What a coincidence his site was targeted now. Almost everything about this sets off alarm bells about over aggressive (and potentially illegal) censorship by the US government of protected free speech.
We at DCX wonder why most mainstream media has not reported this story. The truth must be told at all costs…even at the risk of being told to shut the doors.
