Thank goodness for substack. I have never been a twitter user. I have a life. With substack, I get to read uncensored, well thought out discussion.

Well, It's about frigging time....the narrative continues to collapse.....Fact Check all you want Twitter....More States need to reject DC's harassment!

I bought the book, hardcover, for 3 reasons:

1. In the post covid era I want my dollars supporting journalists that actually investigate. They have families, they deserve to eat, have a roof over their head etc. Happy to pay more for all the countless hours you put in Alex.

2. Amazon could memory hole the digital copy of your work at anytime.

3. I want some minimum wage masked Amazon worker to have to pick your book off the shelf and see "Covid hysteria" pop off the front cover and maybe -just maybe -think twice about what's going on. Someone who might not otherwise be exposed to your work.

I bought hardcovers too, more than one. My copies—and those I’ve given to family—won’t be going down the ‘memory hole’ either. Truthful journalism needs to be supported. Thanks for the above message said so well.☀️

Physical evidence is absolutely essential in our ever increasing digital and censored world. I bought my copy along with a few others for gifts, downloaded it on audible because I enjoyed Alex’s reading of it and above all, needed the truth.

i also consider the digital "revision" that some electronic copies might undergo. i like paper for controversial topics.

The CDC on January 21, 2022, feeds to the mainstream press earth shattering news that THREE new studies prove once and for all that the vaccines and boosters have incredible success at stopping severe illness from the Wuhan Virus. I've poured through the news reports, including the Wall Street Journal. Have yet to find a single reference to the people or organizations who ran the studies. Is that not the most important question? Are they a bunch of Fauci's corrupt buddies? Otherwise, why in the world trust the CDC on this based on it abysmal track record?

The future of media belongs to Substack (assuming they don't get power-mad and screw it up.). I recently started a 'stack here in Portland, where progressives rule, top-to-bottom. Local media is simply part of the progressive machine. There is no outlet for differing opinions.

So, I started "Portland Dissent." Substack didn't charge me a dime. Less than six months later there are 70 subs, average read is around 220...new subs are around one a day. I never advertised or otherwise promoted the 'stack. Amazing.

Yes, Twitter has numbers--but Substack has the gravity, structure, tools to grow exponentially. Greenwald, Berenson, Weiss, etc...not huge numbers but, far more important, committed readers. Twitter is going to become a room with no dissenting voices; the woke won't have anyone left to beat up (thus those desperate little posts about Pandemia). They will bore themselves to death.

Twitter=yesterday. Substack=tomorrow.

A whole lot of people freezing their buts off in DC today to fight against encroaching authoritarianism and you’re complaining about critics on twitter. It’s all about you. Disappointing.

Expand full comment

I agree. Alex didn’t have to attend, and maybe in his role as a journalist, he didn’t want to. But it’s a little jarring that on the day people stood up to say no to the mandates and MRNA treatments, which is what he urged at the end of Pandemia, Alex didn’t even give it a tip of the hat.

Expand full comment

I see your point. I couldn't be there, but I contributed monetarily. So, you were there? What was it like ?

Expand full comment

Couldn't go but watched every minute on live stream. Very exciting and many inspiring speeches, inc. by RFK Jr. BTW, I support Alex B. in his fight vs. Twitter.

Expand full comment

Did you go?

Expand full comment

Rebecca, if you are upset with Alex, I get it. At least make an intelligent argument. What does the mandate march have to do with big-tech censorship? Mixing apples and oranges.

Expand full comment

The anti-mandate march has everything to do with Big-Tech censorship. It should be obvious why this is so. Big Tech censors the truth about SARS-CoV-2, covid, potential early treatments for covid, the efficacy of masking in the reduction of transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the efficacy of lockdowns for stopping or reducing covid transmission, the origin of the coronavirus which is responsible for the pandemic, and on and on.

Expand full comment

But Truth bird, Rebecca's criticism is of Alex. Yes you may be able to link big-tech to the mandates. But how is Alex involved with mandates?

Criticize Alex fine, have an intelligent argument.

Expand full comment

Alex is against the government propaganda about covid. The mandates are one specific aspect of the gestalt. The overarching propaganda and the mandates are not separable. It is simply ludicrous to pretend they are.

Expand full comment

Alex has opposed mandates and shutdowns from day 1.

Expand full comment

Thank you. I couldn’t bring myself to type out the obvious for someone feigning ignorance.

Expand full comment

I agree with you, Montezuma: there are lots of things to be angry about: censorship, authoritarianism, segregation, etc. They're all worthy of being protested but one person can't fight everything at the same time. That's why EVERYONE has to make some damn noise!

Expand full comment

And just for the record--Alex is in a much bigger battle than most. If they can try to ruin a decorated investigative journalist, what do you think the rest of our chances are? Stop whining and stand up for something. Or there are other forums you can pout on. Fight whatever perceived battles you have with freedom of speech in your own warped way. Alex has important stuff to do that will actually make a difference.

Expand full comment

I don't understand why you're replying to me that way: I just agreed with the fact that Alex has every right to fight against censorship...please be sure you've actually read the post you're responding to.

I have the same feeling, Rebecca. And I have for a while now. Alex is very wrapped up in Alex. This is the kind of stuff he could talk to his wife about. Or his shrink. Or a good friend.I think his paying subscribers should not be used as a means of personal therapy for Mr. Berenson. The number of likes you're getting demonstrates we have a lot of company.

There are a lot of battles in this war. Alex is fighting one of them - censorship. If we don't all stick together, we're going to lose the war. Please, folks, let each expert we enjoy here on Substack get the respect and support they need and deserve. It we get fractured, we're all done for!

No, when Alex fights for his rights on a platform that should be supporting FreeSpeech, he is fighting for the rights of everyone. Whose side are you on anyway ?

Expand full comment

Look. Alex does fantastic investigative journalism. I appreciate it. I’ve followed him a long time. I’m a paid subscriber. But I do not see a strong track record fighting censorship in general, mostly just for himself. Often he tries to distance himself from others fighting authoritarianism. He doesn’t want their conspiracy theory stink on him. He thinks his censorship is unique. It’s not. He’s a net positive but posts like todays I find whiny, self serving and annoying. So I say so. He can take it or ignore it. He’s an adult.

Expand full comment

I'm trying to figure out how to respond to you. You just sound so harsh. Alex is a person who has burned his bridges and suffered the consequences. He was right to do it in my way of thinking, but I'm not going to belittle him because he doesn't believe everything I believe . Isn't that one reason we're in this mess to begin with ? Have a little grace.

Expand full comment

HI Mary,

This all follows a predictable and repeating pattern. Someone justifiably in my opinion, raises the issue of Alex's quarrel with ivermectin. Something he so far has steadfastly refused to explain, despite promises to do so.

Or alternatively, again justifiably in my opinion, someone brings up his out of the blue, somewhat crazy seeming personal attack on Dr. Malone. (Why? What possessed him? What was he thinking?) Incidentally, whether he "apologizes" or not, which some would like him to do, is of no interest to me. But it just seemed so weirdly inappropriate.

So that original post always gets quite a few "likes." What quickly follows are a fair number of objection to that original post. (In my view it's interesting that the objecting commenters seem to be somewhat outnumbered.)

Those that object seem of two camps. One camp is the "we all need to get along" contingent. They claiming that we have to be of one mind because discord will weaken our message and somehow "play into the hands" of the dastardly Lefties.

The other camp are the ones who tell us that we should just cancel our subscriptions if we don't like what we're being fed. "Leave poor Alex alone! He's suffered enough! We love him! He's our guy. Just shut up!

The way I see it is paying subscribers have a right to to ask for a certain amount of accountability. I'm no longer sure how reliable Alex is. I don't trust him as much as I used to. I still feel I'm getting my money's worth. But I'd feel much better if we could hear from him on these matters. I'm guessing there are somewhere around half the remaining subscribers who would like to hear something on these issues. Anything at all would be better than his continued silence.

Every expert I trust consistent with virtually all the studies, think the Ivermectin is a very safe and effective prophylactic and treatment especially valuable toward the beginning of infection. What does he know that these experts don't? What is he thinking? He must be thinking something! I doubt he just woke up one morning and decided arbitrarily to hate on ivermectin. And what's up with his animus toward Dr. Malone? Is he jealous? Again, does he know something others don't? Can he defend what he said? Why won't he address this stuff? It's just not a good look.

Are you suggesting the March against Mandates in Washington D.C. today was a waste of time and energy? Or that every time masses citizens anywhere in the world gather to protest fascism and totalitarianism it's a waste of time and energy?

Taking a 1000 foot view, it didn't seem like this rally was supposed to do anything but get as many people together as possible and create some attention. I don't think the kind of organization you are talking about was a consideration. If it was people would have been instructed to stay in cause friendly neighboring communities, busses would have been chartered, etc, etc...

That none of that happened, (that I know of) seems like it was fairly successful from the pictures I saw. There was already a pretty hateful column in the daily beast about it yesterday. All you have to do is replace all of the negative adjectives with positive ones when you read it.

Considering some of the photos I've seen of pride parades, that anything positive came of those gives me at least a glimmer of hope that there will be positive results stemming from this. I wouldn't consider it a one and done, just the first of many.

I'm reading in the Epoch Times about a 70 yr old man dying on a ventilator at the Mayo clinic and 3 judges in Florida have refused to allow another doctor to give him Ivermectin. The clinic will not let him leave the hospital and give him a 5% survival chance. What happened to the Right to Try Act? Seems to me he fits the criteria. I just don't get it.

Excellent post as always, Alex. I find it funny how some on here subscribed just to troll you, but hey, their money is good here too! I've never been an anti-vaxxer in the least, but having had 4 jabs and still managing to "hit the omicron jackpot", you have it right - and have had it right since ages ago. Your dissenting voice has been an important one, and the more violently one is shouted down should raise eyebrows (and ears to hear) as to what is being said. Unreported - and inconvenient - truths are still true, at the end of the day. Thank you for fighting to get them out there.

I still think there is a pressing (and big) story in uncovering more about who backed the fraudulent Hydroxychloroquine study that the Lancet only later removed. That is not a college prank. This took some money, effort, and collaboration from several people in the know. This had some element of sophistication, even if sloppy.
