ATTENTION All TW EMail Notification Subscribers: This Note's For You



"Facebook is Toast" Say Neil Young 


Mark Zuckerberg (CEO FACEBOOK): Liar? Idiot? Or Both?

This alert is being issued for awareness to all of our email notification subscribers.

In yet another blow us against our rights to freedom of speech, on approximately July 1, our daily Thrasher's Wheat Neil Young News email notification subscriptions will cease to operate, very sadly.

It took us a very longtime to build our email notification mailing list and it troubles us greatly that yet another TW communications channel is being shutdown in a long running pattern of suppression, discrimination and censorship against this platform and similar independent media voices.

This is when the aimless blades of sciences have slashed the wheaty gates a bit too cruelly ...  

Hey Big Tech Giant Brownshirts, we the people, do NOT trust you. 

You guys have blocked us, shadow banned us, de-monetized us, de-platformed us, memory-holed us, and harassed/trolled us relentlessly. 

But all of your puny, petty and tired efforts have failed thus far -- we're still standing after 25 years. Stronger and more committed than ever in this battle. 

So enough.

 "YOU have meddled with the primal forces of nature,
 and YOU WILL ATONE!!!" 

Eyes Wide Shut, Mouth Closed

"They" (TPTB) have tried to take us down by canceling our advertising partnerships, or blocking our ability to run Google Ads, or hacking our Twitter account, or filing fraudulent transactions on our PayPal account, or disrupting the ISP service of our partner and Thrasher's Wheat Radio, or screwing around with our Amazon partner links, or jerking us around about Willie for a Nobel, capping our LIKES below 30K and unsub'g folks automatically, throttled our once robust reader comments eco-system suspending the Gigs for the Gulf page based on false copyright infringement claims, trying to make exposing environmental crimes a crime, disrupting freedom of speech and assembly, or humiliating and mocking our efforts when we try and stand up, algorithmic censorship to lower our rank off of Top 10 Search results or gaslighting us with "fake Neil news", sending in all sorts of trolls and spammers to disrupt the Neil community, or making exposing a war crime a war crime or blasting us with near Stuxnet-like levels of crippling attacks on our servers, dropped from Google News as a legitimate (non-fake) news source, blocked folks from dropping blog comments, directed TW private email comms into SPAM folders, and on & on... 



Also, please note that as part of the ongoing clampdown, if you are expecting a reply email to check your SPAM folder as nearly all of our emails are marked as SPAM, unfortunately.

Also, please note that the RSS Feed @  Subscribe to Thrasher's Wheat Neil Young News RSS Feed should still continue to operate.

And we we will never forget those who stood with us and those who did not. Trust us.Because when the that day of full truth, disclosure and reconcilation comes, it will be clearly apparent to all that "The Big Shift" (#BigShift) has arrived.

And not to put too fine a point on all of this, we were canceled long before cancel culture took hold of the collective psyche.  May they reap what they have sown. 

"First they came for Thrasher's Wheat,
and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Neil Young fan.

Then they came for
David Icke, & Aaron Swartz (#AaronDidntKillHimselfEither),
and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a white male conspiracy theorist or a cyber warrior crusading for justice & freedom.

Then they came for Oprah Winfrey & Beyonce,
and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a black female social justice warrior.

Then they came for Neil Young,
and I didn’t speak up, because I was Donald Trump voter.

Then they came for me,
and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me."
MODIFIED ~~ Rev. Martin Niemoller, 1945

We first published these original words by Rev. Martin Niemoller here on Thrasher's Wheat on September 27, 2011 -- about a decade ago. And we insert the profound words of Rev. Martin Niemoller into our postings from time to time

And it's been over 75 years since the quote originated during a very dark time in history.  A history that we repeat again, where many remain silent and afraid to speak their truths.

So how much longer will this continue all of you communists, jews, trade unionists, and catholics out there? [NOTE: Before going insane here, those are the exact groups originally cited by Rev. Niemoller in 1945.]  

Again, how's that identity politics thing working out for you these days, eh?

Because, remember, like Rev. Niemoller, we will NEVER forget those who stood with us and those who did not. Trust us.

Because, "The role of the artist is to make [r]evolution irresistible."

peace & love,

the thrashers

ps - help us fight the "powers that be" and declare media independence by supporting  Thrasher's Wheat Celebrates 25th Anniversary: 1996 - 2021  along with Neil Young himself who declares: "HAPPY 25th Anniversary Thrasher’s Wheat!" 

And, we do NOT want your money, your $'s... or your sympathies.  

All the money & sympathy in the world can't suppress the truth. You can help us by simply sharing TW links with your friends.  That is all we ask in seeking our reader's help and support.

The TRUTH will win for those of us who practice true #disCERNment.

Why is the e-mail list ceasing to operate?

At 6/21/2021 10:36:00 AM, Blogger Paul Dionne said...

@Ruben, exactly - a much more cogent question than thrasher's diatribing.....

paul dionne

At 6/21/2021 11:03:00 AM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ Ruben - thanks for asking. It seemed somewhat obvious to us in initial paragraphs as to why.

but guess not as obvious as we thought.

not to diatribe, but the existing FeedBurner service is shutting down on July 1. Simple as that.

and this is where the diatribe kicks in -- again. Small bloggers like TW have been utilizing services such as FeedBurner for over 10 years as a simple effective distribution and notification service for our RSS feeds.

The diatribe provides background and evidence of a pervasive pattern of targeted harassment against free speechers like us here @ TW.

we sincerely hope that your inquiry is of a supportive nature.

will you join and help us spread the word please?


@ Paul - pot meet kettle

At 6/21/2021 11:10:00 AM, Blogger Ruben said...

thanks for clarifying. I wasn't commenting (or non-supporting) about any diatribe, I was just curious on the technical aspect. Sorry to hear that, hopefully there's another way.... I would be happy to spread the word, but I'm not on any kind of platform to do that (ain't got no FB, ain't got no Twitter, etc).

At 6/21/2021 11:31:00 AM, Blogger eddie77 said...

Is there an alternative way to alert your many loyal followers of updates?

At 6/21/2021 11:38:00 AM, Blogger thrasher said...

@Ruben - thanks for followup here. presumbly others are curious about all of this as well.

yes,certainly, there are many other distribution and notification services out there. But. It isn't a trivial exercise migrating a large email list into other services. It takes quite a bit of time and energy. This isn't something we're really interested in doing given the many, many other high priorities we have planned for our 25th anniversary.

C;ear;y, TPTB are quite conCERNed about our our 25th anniversary plans and are working hard to thwart. But we will not be defeated.

But back to other services. For example MailChimp. However, it is widely known that MailChimp has shutdown many of its customers for ToS violations.

When reviewing these ToS T&C's (which is something we do that -- oddly enough -- no one else ever seems to do), you can read that MailChimp can and will shut off anyone they choose for whatever reason they choose. Or terminate service for no reason at all.

anything which challenges the prevailing narrative of the mainstream media corporate propaganda.must be suppressed.

There really is no provider of services which truly preserves freedom of speech. As you can see, what we do here is mainly homegrown.

To conclude our mini diatribe here, that's great you're not on the un-social platforms.

Just fwd via email our posts which might resonate w/ freinds. For example, we have many readers that are big Bob fans but not so much into Neil. But they often will share in various Bob communities the latest Bob & Neil news.

Similarly with Nelson fans of Willie, Lukas & Micah. Again, while but not so much into Neil, Nelson fans often will share in various Nelson/Farm Aid communities the latest Nelsons & Neil news.

Just share a link on occasion. Because sharing is caring.

Thanks for readin' & Keep on rockin'!

@ PL Dr. - your support and encouragement of TW over the decades is most appreciated.


this is valuable. Because @ TW, #'s add up to nothin'!

Quality over quantity whether you want it or not.

This wheat's for you! No chaff. Unlike those other media outlets that propagate so much chaff.

not to diatribe or anything ...

At 6/22/2021 04:29:00 PM, Blogger Dan Swan said...

I tend to agree with Peacelover Doc. on this subject. We’re coming to you with or without you notifying us, so save yourself the time and energy, and know that we are still supporting your work.

I may be ignorant on how all this works, so please tell me if I’m not understanding something here. I also don’t do any social media except here and NYA, so it’s possible I don’t understand what the value is. Thanks in advance.

Peace 🙏

@ Dan- as a most valued TW reader, your thoughts are always most welcomed and absorbed here.

Essentially, this isn't a particluarly technical matter. Moving from one email distro platform can be done.

Again, this is a time and energy decision. Mess w/ that for weeks and weeks getting taken care of.

or stick to trying to bring folks the latest wheat.

TW is always mission focused. except when were not. like right now.

so back to the wheat! let's leave all that chaff on the floor for other networks to grapple with.

mission accomplished ... again .. diatribe completed. :)

At 6/23/2021 10:51:00 AM, Blogger Dan Swan said...

@ Thrashers : Time is our most precious commodity. It makes perfect sense to use it wisely. Thanks for all you do and I appreciate your taking the time to explain it for me.

Peace 🙏

I missed the Feedburner news also, so I too was wondering what was going on. I'm only a reader-in-passing (6 days behind the post here) but if you need extra hands to transition to a new system, do let me know.

Agreed, you should be focusing on the Wheat and not a transition project, but maybe for the next 25 years you should look to get off Big Tech platforms, what that would entail and if it's worth it. I think it is now pretty obvious that Big Tech does not care about their users one iota, and it just a matter of time before another big disappointment comes around.

Keep on keeping on
