I have many people on my confidential email list that are notified when I post a new article on my blog involving Constitutional issues. No one else has access to the list and I don’t do forwards. However, several years ago I began having problems with some of my emails being blocked. It started with members of the U.S. Army who had subscribed to my blog using their military email addresses had my emails blocked.

          When this occurred I received the following notifications: “The message that you sent to an user with subject "The Politics of Fear" was not accepted for delivery since it contained URLs that Army Cyber Command has disallowed.” Apparently someone in Obama’s Pentagon has decided that American soldiers should not be allowed to read articles about the Constitution they have taken an oath to defend. My inquiries to Army Cyber Command about the reason for this were ignored.

          A few months later similar inquiries made to AOL were ignored when my emails to subscribers with AOL email accounts were being blocked. I experimented with these emails and finally determined that it was my signature on my emails that included links to my blog, the United States Justice Foundation, the Constitutional Law Alliance, and even to my books were triggering the blocks. We changed the URLS to those links and that seemed to solve the problem, at least temporarily.

          However, recently I have been getting additional indications that my emails are again being blocked. This is occurring with Comcast emails, and now with some Verizon emails. In the case of Verizon some of my subscribers have reported they receive my emails on their Verizon account, but they are blocked when they try to forward them to their contacts.

          Also, I have noticed that in the past when I made a new post to my blog, I would usually receive email comments from scores of people on my list. That has recently fallen off to just a hand full. Now I have been getting info that my emails are being blocked to addresses that do not appear to be connected to Google addresses and even addresses that are not connected to the large servers. I suspect that I have not received notifications of all of the emails I have sent that have been blocked.  

          I have received confirmation today that his problem is being experienced by other conservative blogs, websites, and newsletters. This is clearly an all-out effort by internet companies to censor the Internet and try to eliminate the free speech of those of us who dare to disagree with the leftist agenda.

           The purpose of this article is to inform Americans of what is happening and to ask for the help of my subscribers. Please acknowledge that you have received the email informing you of the posting of this article. That way I can isolate the emails that are being blocked. I am also sending out the emails without my signature containing URLS so I can try to determine if it is those or my email address that is triggering the blocking of my emails.

          I will inform you of the results. I am far from being an Internet expert, so I would also appreciate any suggestions about how to protect my emails and blog from these attacks.

Michael , I am receiving your emails through our AT& T server.. Thank you for alerting me of this problem... I always refused your emails as valuable information, please keep me on your email list. I have not upgraded my IPad and I'm considering, not doing so! I understand Microsoft is attaching government spyware to the new windows iOS upgrade! This could be the problem! I have an article that I received today, giving details.. There is a suggestion that we can follow through to avoid this spyware.. It is in the new windows upgrade.. Wishing you good luck resolving this!


There have been problems with my emails also.  Not sure why.  It happens when I click on links or forward sometimes.  I have not paid that much attention as to which urls or topics are being rejected.  I will start keeping a log on rejects and blocks.  Life is now becoming a record keeping vocation.

Got the email
A correction in my email.. I always valued your emails as valuable information! ( I don't understand why my emai said refused your emails as valuable information! I DID NOT TYPE THAT, it printed that without my knowledge! I want you to know this!!

Wow, okay, I thought I was losing it somehow. This is happening to me on my smartphone.Things I am not typing are being received as part of my sent texts. I do not see it on my end. I only see it when it is forwarded back to me. My outgoing message has been added to with things I did not say at all. This is causing great confusion. Verizon says they just don't see how this could be happening......

But it is. I can read on my phone and the recipients phone side by side and the last half of the text is added to with sometimes completely nonsensical things.

Anyone with an explanation, please feel free to comment.

Came through lima charlie here

I got it but you are right every thing is censored now... face book is not letting me post thing they don't like my cox E-mail is doing funny thing when I open things from western / j or Tom Fitten...NO MORE FREE SPEECH..

Cox in the California is where I encountered the most problems.  They are Liberals, and evidently are doing their mischief, monitoring and censoring. 

Thus far, I have received whatever you are sending when you send it. I am not as active as once I was on this site simply because I TRUST no one in this country anymore for the simple reason that you CANNOT. While I seem to have no problems with your postings, I HAVE had some email oddities in performance ongoing in OTHER sites , different from this one. I am quite conservative, politically activist and with over 400 postings to politicians at all levels of government in BOTH parties over these past 7 years. I recently had a face to face confrontation with 6th Congressional District MA (D) cretin Seth Moulton who is on the Armed Forces Committee of the U.S. House but should NOT be in my estimation as he publicly ignored my requests to be recognized and speak on behalf of VETERANS; this though he was a 2nd LT in the USMC who led one of the first Infantry platoons into Baghdad in 2003. I was a chaplain assistant with a degree in Government  12 years prior to his birth and 11 years prior in Vietnam for MOH awardee chaplain Charles Angelo Liteky, as his personal assistant and protection in the 199th Light Infantry Brigade and, that piece of excrement will receive the same respect he showed me : NONE, and has made a well qualified political ENEMY of this 100% disabled though ambulatory Viet vet. I have so informed him of such as well as his Senatorial counterparts from MA: Both of them! I am sick of having NO REPRESENTATION at all in Washington simply because I am conservative and I WILL organize a movement against all incumbent candidates up for re-election for the next 3 election cycles to implement a return to CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT UNDER THE RULE OF LAW! PERHAPS, IF WE ARE UNITED AS VETERANS, MUCH PUT UPON ELDERS AND MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES BEING IMPOVERISHED ALONG WITH MILITARY FAMILIES AND ACTIVE MILITARY TROOPS AND BLOC VOTE FOR THAT AGENDA, WE CAN ERASE THIS CABAL OF NEW /WORLD ORDER TROLLS AND TREASONOUS ENABLERS OF THE U.N. AGENDA 21 TAKEOVER OF THIS COUNTRY!

I am receiving all emails posted by Harry Riley on Patriots For America.  Is anyone else having these same problems, specifically pertaining this subject matter?

How to post "live" URL in posts at PFA............. Adding URLs in blog posts that are not "live" is a waste of everyone's time.....
Here's how....if anyone has better guidance send to me.....
First........type your text entry into the post block to include typing or paste the URL you want us to view........when finished with the text, highlight and copy the URL in the text.......then click the "add hyperlink" tool in the B, I, U box just above the text entry, after clicking, a window will open asking for the URL...paste the URL in the box and click "OK". You have now made the URL "live" shows some code before the post is published, it goes away when you "publish post".......
