Facebook Bans Principia Scientific International Without Explanation

Written by John O'Sullivan

Today, Facebook blocked users from reading content posted on the site by independent body, Principia Scientific International (PSI), a registered UK non-profit listed at Companies House as a provider of educational services.

Check the Facebook black listing of PSI at this link.

We contacted Facebook immediately for an explanation, as there was no notification or warning that PSI had been in violation of any terms of service.

All that shows from our sign on page is the word – “BLACKLISTED”

What concerns us is that we are a bona fide, licensed business registered for charitable purposes. The organisation has over 5,300 subscribers to our daily news feed and up to 50,000 visitors to the site each day. Our membership is comprised mostly of qualified scientists, some of whom have long and distinguished careers.
However, judging from when the ban started, it appears that the article that triggered this facist attack on open science discussion is this excellent new paper by Roger Higgs PhD (Oxford).https://principia-scientific.org/proof-that-the-sun-not-co2-drives-climate-sea-level-change/
So, a highly-credentialed and respected Oxford scientist’s expert analysis exposing the UN IPCC’s gross scientific errors is considered unfit for anyone on FB to read?
What frightens Facebook so much?
Perhaps they fear believers in their approved narrative about a  ‘climate crisis’ might understand we have all been lied to for 30 years about so-called man-made global warming.
Dr Higgs has done nothing unethical. He is simply one among many scientists skeptical of the junk science promoted by multi-national corporations and the mainstream news media. Obviously, the success of PSI in spreading the message has irked the enemies of open scientific debate.
PSI engages in no malicious attacks on anyone, no hate speech, no false scientific claims. Indeed, as stated above, we are an international body comprised of many well-respected experts in their field.
Readers wanting to view a sample list of some of our scientists can check out our select members page.
Where do we go from here?
We can only ask that our loyal Facebook readers send a message of complaint to ask for our  immediate reinstatement for this unwarranted attack. At the very least, Facebook should come clean for the reason for this unjust attack.

    Andy, yes that’s our old FB page. We have been using the one found in the link in the article since 2016.

    Surprised? I’ m not. You should be happy that you’re free of the power of the
    ZuckerBeast, which is pure evil, sucking you dry for everything including your brains. It might even be worthwhile to sue them to scrub all their files on you.

    For 10 years I’ve been warning people to flee the ZuckerBeast and boycott Facebook for their own protection. Few including you wouldn’t listen. Now consider yourself lucky that Facebook is boycotting you. You didn’t think all those “Friends” were real friends, did you? You didn’t think that you could build a loyal following for your blog that way? The only way is to get them to subscribe to your blog daily for the free daily email so that they can keep up and follow along. If all you want is clicks from Google and Facebook, you’re building a castle of sand. Twitter is even worse, since nobody reads tweets. Who cares about Web sites set up by young weenies in their college dorm rooms? They scammed the world and you fell for it. Quit riding the snake while you can. You wouldn’t really want to be permanently dependent on them, would you?

    Take this as a teachable moment and get serious about building a real following. Nobody can throw you off the Internet itself yet, although I wish somebody could throw Facebook off.

    The whole raison d’être for Facebook, YouTube, Twitter etc., for not being taxed as publishers of content is they all argue that they are just ‘platforms’ for people to express themselves. By this logic it implies that these platforms hold NO EDITORIAL oversight on the content they show (except by that which is mandated by government statue, i.e. rules for political campaigns, laws on sponsoring terrorism, etc.)
    These ‘platform’ providers by the very act of banning anyone (who has not broken the law), are operating an editorial policy and therefore MUST be acing as publishers and not just ‘platform’ providers.
    Therefore all of these providers are not being correctly taxed as they are publisher and ‘platform’ providers. Providers who operate a publishing (editorial) policy to ban or allow those who provide the content.
    Tax official in every country where these entities operate should now reassess the tax liabilities of these ‘content providers’ as publishers as well, taxed just the same as newspapers or book publishers.

    Facebook accused me of being the Russian that caused the American People to vote for Trump. The fact that they’re trying to shut this great site out shows how effective you are. Facebook is a thing of the past just like the alarmist that still peddle the AGW climate change hoax.

    WELL DONE Principia Scientific!!! Facebook accused me of being THE Russian that caused the American People to vote for Trump. The fact that the pajama boys at FB are trying to shut out this great site shows how effective you actually are.

    Hi John,
    I have to agree with the commenters here. You are doing a great service by creating an effective platform exposing people to material that exposes reality as any scientific inquiry should.

    You already know that all the major media networks that dominate the known internet and airwaves are mostly, if not entirely controlled by this hierarchical system.
    The state is coercive by nature and is therefore immoral hence illegitimate.
    Morality is defined by life.
    Moral function is good for life and immoral function is bad for life.
    Anything bad for life is morally illegitimate.
    Morality is clearly our highest function!

    State driven coercivity, war and policing dominates the world today and it is the deepest irony that people place their trust in this illegitimate system – it demonstrates the power of social engineering via education, media thus reinforcing tradition and convention, fear and compliance .

    Given the fact that Facebook does reach a significant proportion of global population and is part of the same system of hierarchy then it can not be a surprise that censorship will occur if you promote global policy threatening material on their advertising platform.
    They fear your content.
    Congratulations!

      Hi Joe, yes, that’s a very fair analysis of the situation with Facebook. We had suspected a ban was due at some point being that our membership and reach has grown so well in recent years. Thanks for your words of support – we battle on.

    Join the Club.
    As a subscriber to the on-line version of The Australian daily newspaper, I have been able to post comments on their web site under various columns, usually to do with climate. It would appear that I have now been black-balled as my latest comments have all been removed soon after I post them.
    I have lodged a complaint and await their response. Is this the latest move to ensure everyone believes the CO2 induced global warming fraud by the UN IPCC ?

    Trump has said he will shut down Facebook if this happens. So do not complain to Facebook but to Trump

      We can only hope Trump shuts down the cancerous Facebook and all its other surveillance sites.
