Simple Proof That Google Shadow-bans Conservative Content, WHILE DuckDuckGo Does Not

The Knight and the Serpent has been a primarily conservative blog since its inception on December 31, 2011. I publish rational, well-researched articles about a variety of topics, such as suicide, gun violence, healthcare, unalienable rights, religion, government corruption, sports, and dishonesty in the Fake News media.  For the first five years, Google was my primary referral search engine, and I had a decent number of readers. But something happened then Google did not intend… a true patriot, Donald Trump, was elected president… and as a result, Google has put my voice in a cyber gulag, with only the rare Google visitor.

A queer thing happened after the 2016 Presidential Election – Google started shadow-banning my content.

In 2016, the garish, loud and flamboyant Don Trump smoked the Republican field of presidential contenders by simply promising to drain the Swamp that is the District of Columbia, and Make America Great Again. The Swamp, which really more like a massive, underground fungus that spreads its hyphae unseen through the darkness to all corners of the world, went into a panic. They do not own Donald Trump. He rejects the Bilderberg Group. He makes up his own rules… and he intentionally makes fun of all of them. Mocks them… hitting them back twice as hard every time they throw a punch… and the citizens of America support him loud and clear. We threw off the cloak of complacency and went to war for him. We all went to the ballot box singing a bar of Alice’s Restaurant, and the swamp knew… they knew it was a movement. The Alice’s Restaurant, anti-Massacree, Make America Great Again Movement. In a tidal wave of small towns and rural counties, the last vestiges of patriotic Americans rolled a red wave over Hillary Clinton’s corruption, sending Donald Trump to the White House. And America’s second Civil War began. A war where America’s progressive, left-wing is suppressing conservative, Republican journalism.

Propaganda is a key piece of any war effort. Propaganda is, by its very nature, Fake News. Its sole purpose is to deceive and demoralize. In order for propaganda to be effective, opposing views must be suppressed. Silenced. Truthful journalism is the sworn enemy of propaganda. What you read here at The Knight and the Serpent, if nothing else, is truthful content, and Google simply cannot have that.

DuckDuckGo is not shadow-banning my content.

Fake News outlets such as PMSNBC, The Clinton News Network, and the British Broadcasting NPC, do nothing but propagate disinformation every day. Fox News is their only major opponent. The rest of the resistance, conservative media outlets, are small endeavors. Some, like TheBlaze and PragerU, have the resources to fight for their right to be heard. They often lose those fights. Most of us, however, provide conservative content on our own dime and time. We are easy to target and suppress. But in that suppression, big tech, like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, turn from being an unbiased platform where everyone can stand on a soapbox and speak, to being a publisher who censors content. And that, dear reader, is exactly what the Communist Chinese Government does.

Please click this link to a video by PragerU. PragerU lost, then lost its appeal. As of today, it is legal for Google to shadow-ban my blog simply because I oppose their political point of view.

“Off With Their Heads!” The BBC Refuses to Fact-Check America’s Queen of Hearts, Nancy Pelosi

The truth is Nancy Pelosi behaves more like Marie Antoinette than any other American politician. Off with their heads!

Nancy Pelosi is as vicious and vitriolic a politician as I have ever seen. She spews hateful rhetoric every day and does everything within her power to criticize and obstruct President Trump at the expense of the American people. She used a national crisis to leverage an obscene amount of porkbarrel spending into Covid stimulus bill, even though our national debt is beyond the comprehension of most people.

She shamefully impeached President Trump, but not for colluding with Russia because all the evidence pointed toward Hillary Clinton colluding with Russia and paying for the Fake Steele Dossier upon which Pelosi based her impeachment proceeding.

She impeached the President, but not for any activity in Ukraine because all the evidence, including a publicly recorded confession, pointed toward then Vice President Joe Biden withholding a billion dollars in Ukraine aid to force Ukraine to fire the prosecutor looking into corruption at Burisma Holdings and his son, Hunter. In fact, the BBNPC has steadfastly refused to use their vast investigational power to dig into the Biden family’s corruption at any level.

The BBC has not fact-checked Joe Biden in over a decade.

Instead, Nancy Pelosi and her evil minions like Adam Schiff, impeached President Trump because he refused to cooperate with her fake Russia investigation and her fake Ukraine investigation, even though his lack of cooperation was perfectly legal. Only the Supreme Court can decide if the executive branch must comply with legislative subpoenas, which would require the legislative branch to file suit, which Nancy Pelosi refused to do, knowing that she would lose.

The BBNPC has never fact-checked Nancy Pelosi. It is against their preferred narrative because they are Fake News.

You will not find a sniff of these basic truths on the BBNPC’s website. In fact, while the BBNPC vilifies President Trump and conservative American politicians on a daily basis, I could not find a single article that portrayed Nancy Pelosi in a negative light. She is corrupt, irrational, and her rhetoric is factually challenged. While the BBNPC fact-checks President Trump on a daily basis, they have never fact-checked the Speaker of the House. Why? BECAUSE THE BBNPC HAS A BIASED NARRATIVE THEY WILL NEVER DEVIATE FROM. The NPCs at the BBC are driven by a leftist agenda. Anthony Zurcher is not a journalist. He, and the rest of the BBNPC, is Fake News.

The Single Silver Lining of Covid-19, the Virus China Unleashed Against Earth

Right now, as most of you, I am sitting in my house on orders by Government. Luckily, I am considered ‘Essential’ so am still employed, but I wear a germ filter mask at work. I maintain social distancing and have not gone to church in two months, all in hopes that Covid-19 will first wax, then wane as the virus’s ability to use human beings as a vector of infection diminishes.

Understand, in the world of infectious disease, we the people, homo sapiens, are our own primary vector of transmission. Ticks and mosquitos are only a tiny slice of the disease pie. We infect ourselves. Influenza, the common cold, HIV, HPV, herpes, MRSA, hepatitis and a whole host of other viral and bacterial infections are gifts from us to us. We cough, we shit, we have sex, and that transmits disease.

Not only will taking a month or two of social distancing and remaining cooped up in our homes blunt Covid-19, flattening the curve, it will also hughly restrain many other vector-man infectious diseases… at least for a short time. I am not going to get a cold in the next few months simply because everyone with a cold has been in isolation long enough to end their infectious period. If it works for Covid, it will work for a lot of other human-born pathogens. To borrow from former presidential candidate and avowed communist, Bernie Sanders, that’s a good thing.

I cannot make this shit up: The BBC Barfs Again

In one egregious headline, the BBC accuses American patriots of being mindless automatons and President Trump a master puppeteer.

Despite what the leftist, globalist elites want you to think, President Trump did not organize, nor can he stop AMERICAN CITIZENS FROM EXERCISING THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO PROTEST. Envy, you bet! It is just too damn bad your own citizens are denied the inalienable rights given to man by God. Good night to all the fake journos at the BBNPC. Go protest soy shortages.

Misleading BBC Headline Implies President Trump Might Be Able to Delay Election Day

Can President Trump delay election day?

The easy answer to the BBC’s question is, “No, President Trump cannot delay election day.”

After Fake News, anti-American journo, Anthony Zurcher, implied Trump just might be able to legally extend his first term as president in this headline, he quickly answers his own disingenuous and false question:

(Of course he can’t) Under a law dating back to 1845, the US presidential election is slated for the Tuesday after the first Monday of November every four years – 3 November in 2020. It would take an act of Congress – approved by majorities in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives and the Republican-controlled Senate – to change that.

What a tit.

In recent days I have easily made the case that not a day goes by where the Barely British Corp does not mislead its readers with fearmongering, anti-American headlines, and Fake News journalism. So what exactly is the BBC? Well, according to the UK Government:

The BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) is a British public service broadcaster. Its main responsibility is to provide impartial public service broadcasting in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.

The BBC is primarily funded through fees paid by citizens, and both regular and irregular migrants, residing in the UK. It is under the thumb of the government. So how is it that the fake journos at the BBC are allowed to skew their view so far left that ‘impartial public service’ turns into bias opinion? I believe there has been a petty, century-long desire within the UK’s elites to knock America down a notch or two. They hate President Trump because he wants to Make America Great Again and Keep America Great. He is not playing the globalist game that leftists like President Obama and the Clintons do. He does not capitulate. So, through the BBC, UK elites take daily shots at America and Trump to skew, not only the opinion of people in the UK, but all the citizens on Earth. That is a real, verifiable, attempt to interfere in American elections.

The Chinese Virus, COVID-19, Exposes the Dangers Inherent in the Democrat Party’s Pursuit of Socialism

From the ever-present obsession of America’s leftists with nationalized healthcare to the insanity of the Green New Deal, the COVID-19 national shutdown is giving Americans a bitter taste of where Joe Biden’s handlers want to lead every man, woman, and child. Socialism. From France to Venezuela, socialism usually leads to unemployment, poverty and ultimately national failure.

The Democrat, Progressive Left will have Americans marching to Hell double-time if they win in the 2020 election.

No matter where you are, people like spending money. We love to give and get gifts, we love being entertained, and we love good food… in sum everyone loves some sort of bling. It does not have to be jewelry. All bling has to do is remove austerity from your life. I know a lot of people who (annoyingly) cry poverty, yet always have money for Starbucks. It is nice to have earned an extra $5 in your pocket that you do not absolutely need to survive, so you can exchange it for something that makes you feel good.

The communist/socialist versus capitalist debate is all about who spends money with more justice and wisdom, individuals or government. The socialized government takes from the productive folks in society and redistributes wealth where government sees fit, often to wealthy friends, pet causes, or for quid-pro-quos. This kind of income redistribution is managed by a handful of politicians and bureaucrats and is too often not the way citizens want their money spent. Socialism places a yoke of servitude on industrious, hard-working people with burdensome taxes and regulations, while enabling citizens with a questionable work ethic to always walk downhill. This system leads to a hopeless sort of lethargy in the general population, stymying innovation and economic energy. It is demoralizing to work hard then watch all your productivity disappear behind the curtain of bureaucracy. This is why France’s unemployment rate has not dropped below 7% in over thirty years, and why their median household income is only 71% of America’s.

The capitalist, free-market system, allows people to spend their wealth the way they see fit. You work, earn, and then spend your money purchasing goods and services from others, who then are able to work, earn and spend. Some citizens want high quality for a high price, while some accept lower quality for a lower price. Almost everyone is a bargain hunter, and in a diverse culture of 300 million spenders, one man’s garbage is often another man’s treasure. Everyone has different spending priorities, so a plethora of industries spring up, employing a vastly diverse population of characters. If you are stupid enough to tattoo the Nazi German Eagle on your forehead, there is likely an ink parlor that will employ you IF you have the skills. If you don’t have the skills, then you suffer the consequences of what you did to yourself. The point is discretionary spending, the heart and soul of capitalism, creates diverse industries. The cruise industry is utterly useless, yet it exists because a lot of people love wasting money on cruises. The same goes for professional athletics, restaurants, vacation resorts, the arts, and any number of industries that require a diverse population with diverse interests… and money to spend.

Now, thanks to Chinese misinformation about the coronavirus they unleashed on the world along with ineptness at the World Health Organization, America is in lockdown. Non-essential businesses have been shut down. These are the very places that capitalist Americans love to spend their money on their particular idea of bling. That dumb-ass with the Nazi Eagle tatted on his forehead? He is out of work. That means he is not earning. That means he is not spending. The trillions of dollars the Government is spending to stimulate the economy during the Covid Crisis is all borrowed money the Treasury has no way of paying back without raising taxes and going through a period of rampant inflation. And guess what? A lot of the stimulus money is going to disappear into the pockets of invisible elites. Covid-19 is giving America a taste of what the progressive-left leaders in the Democrat party have in store for us if they get their way. We are no longer slouching toward Gomorrah, we are on the cusp of a forced march into political darkness. Think about that when you vote this fall. There is not a single Democrat politician at the federal level that deserves reelection. If you are a staunch liberal, you need to primary this pack of morally bankrupt Dems. If you are undecided, for God’s sake, consider voting for someone who is morally and socially conservative.

BBC Accuses Trump Admin of Delayed Action

Earlier action from China and the WHO would have save lives all over the planet.

This BBC hit piece does not mention China or the World Health Organization once, yet mentions Trump three times. If China had been forthcoming with information and the World Health Organization not been run by an ignorant sycophant, earlier action on a global basis would have definitely saved lives. The BBC’s 20/20 hindsight article quoting Dr. Fauci is disingenuous at best. Agenda driven, absolutely. Accusing the Trump administration of failing to act in a timely fashion, when in fact President Trump flew in the face of all advice from China, the WHO, Democrat politicians like Joe Biden and all the globe’s leftist ilk, and initiated a travel ban in January, is nothing but morally corrupt bias. This travel ban, and the subsequent decisions from the White House, have saved countless lives. Even Dr. Fauci admitted that any delay on President Trump’s part was due to delays in the information pipeline. As soon as Dr. Fauci advised restrictions, the President acted immediately. Do you hear that you BBC leftist douchebags, IMMEDIATELY!

Fauci himself is starting to have serious credibility problems. He loves being the center of attention and can’t stop talking. Fauci lacks a filter and Fake News journalists are taking advantage. Between January and April he predicted, through no fault of his own, between 100,000 and 200,000 American deaths. Globally, during that time period, reported Covid deaths have barely topped 100,000 and US deaths are just over 22,000, less than the 2019-20 flu season. It could have so much worse. Considering all of the early misinformation coming out of Communist China and the WHO, the US response at a state and federal level has been timely and strong, and this highly contagious virus has been slowed to a crawl. That is a hell of a good job and that is what Anthony Fauci should be preaching and what the shitheels at the BBC should be reporting. Instead, they play politics because they hate Trump. I would say that the British people should rise up against the Barely British Corp, but Americans have yet to call PBS and NPR to account, and I am not a hypocrite… unlike every fuck who works for the BBC.

Envious BBC Takes Shot at President Trump for Envisioning America’s Return to the Moon

The entire world has greatly benefitted, free of charge mind you, from technologies created by the US space program. Camera phones, scratch-resistant lenses, CAT scans, LED bulbs, and memory foam are just a few examples of technological advancements that people everywhere enjoy with origins from NASA. Just as with World Health Organization and the United Nations, American taxpayers have born the brunt of the money invested in space travel, and the technological advancements produced therein.

So why does the BBC want to put a worm in that apple? They hate President Trump, that’s why.

In an article written by BBC journalists Manish Pandey and Michael Biggs, in which the two could find nothing but positive things about President Trump’s all-American desire to return man to the moon for the first time in a half-century, they could not help but whine and snark. Even their photoshopped image mocks the president.

*BBC Tabloid headline: Trump assesses threat from lunar throne as Bat Boy eats Earth.

The following is what the BBC wants their readers to ultimately see as the answer to the question, “Why does President Trump want to mine the moon?”

“There has been tension between the US and China since President Trump came to power, and Benjamin says (going to the moon) is a chance for him to assert “dominance and leadership”.

Sorry BBC, but tension with China is not Trump’s fault. There has been tension between China and the US since 1949. We aren’t the ones who threw Hong Kong under the bus to relieve political tension with communist China.

“The US has lost the (global rare earth) race – other countries are ahead, like China and Russia,” says Benjamin. “Materials mined by China have been made available around the world.”

“It will be really attractive to people like President Trump if you are able to get minerals in a place where the Chinese aren’t – like space.”

Huh? China is a benevolent nation that spreads rare-earths among all nations like Santa Claus? Maybe somewhere in the multiverse, but in our dimension of reality, China charges so much for rare-earths that a lunar mining operation might just be a cheaper way to go.

“The (executive) order… said the US did not see space as a common area for resources, and didn’t need permission of international agreements to get started.”

“President Trump’s order is clear that international law won’t apply to US efforts in space – but laws about what humans can do off-planet are less well defined.”

And that, dear BBC, is why you are protected by the United Kingdoms Skynet satellite defense system, and the UK is going forward with Project Oberon. Systems you at the BBC do nothing but praise. You don’t need Russia’s or China’s permission to go to space, and the UK is free to build their own manned lunar station. Tabloid envy is ugly.

Dear BBC, the Terms ‘Illegal’, ‘Undocumented’, and ‘Irregular’, Are Not Synonyms

Will Somebody Please Get the Barely British Corporation a Dictionary of the English Language?

British immigration laws are strict AND enforced. As the UK is made up entirely of islands, they have the luxury of no existing land border, let alone a two thousand mile border with a corrupt, lawless nation controlled by drug cartels supported by Communist China. This combination makes the UK a less desirable and less accessible destination for immigrants who do not have permission to enter the kingdom. Whether the Brits refer to illegal aliens as undocumented immigrants, irregular citizens or developmentally different citizens, they defend their borders far more strictly than the United States. As for America, instead of having the world’s biggest moat, our southern border has only a trickle of water called the Rio Grande. Calling out the United States in a time of a global pandemic just because the BBC has a leftist anti-Trump bent is hypocritical.

The BBC claims people who break America’s laws are merely ‘developmentally different’

While the BBC finds time to write inflammatory, negative articles regarding America’s (meaning President Trump’s) immigration policies, they have a long history ‘unbiased’ reporting about UK immigration. They take a light hand on their home turf. On July 13, 2018, BBC journalist, Jennifer Scott, wrote an article claiming President Trump kept immigrant children in cages. This outright lie was repeated over and over in the Fake News to lather up British hatred for the President. In reality, it was President Obama’s policies that caged children and it was President Trump who put a stop to it. The BBC hates President Trump so much, they never corrected the claim made in Scott’s article.

On March 16th, 2020, BBC journalist, Helier Cheung, wrote a negative piece questioning whether or not the US could catch up on Covid testing. Less than four weeks later Trump’s America has administered well over one million tests, more than four times what the U.K. could muster. Did the BBC give Trump credit for such a Herculean response to a dire situation? No, because they hate America’s president.

As of today, approximately 1 in 1000 UK citizens have tested positive for the Chinese virus, Covid-19. Illegal immigrants make up right around 1 in 100 of the United Kingdom’s population. In America approximately 1.5 in 1000 people have tested positive for Covid-19. Illegal immigrants make up more than 6 in 100 of America’s population. Seeing as how America’s numbers are direr than the UK’s, combined with a defensively difficult border with a country that traditionally encourages illegal aliens and drug cartels to violate our laws, President Trump is right to enforce our laws and expel citizens of other countries that have no right to step on American soil. Illegal aliens, who often use innocent children as shields when they attempt to cross America’s southern border, are not ‘developmentally different’ as the BBC would have their readers believe. They are putting lives at risk and breaking the law.

The BBC Uses Old Tabloid Trick To Accuse President Trump of Politicizing Covid-19

Headline News


Is Bat Boy the real source of Covid-19? Where is he being held and by who?

Chuck and Nancy need to answer serious questions about what skeletons are hidden in this house’s basement.


















Horrifying, right? And a classic tabloid trick to get the reader to believe Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are lovers who have the very creature responsible for Covid-19 jumping species locked in their farmhouse basement… without saying as much. It is what readers expect from The National Enquirer and The Sun. Outrageous headlines at the grocery checkout. With absolute confidence, I can allege Nancy and Chuck keep far worse secrets… if only we could serve them a subpoena and get them under oath.

However, when it comes to Covid-19, the BBC brings the weight of serious journalism to the table. Nothing tabloid to see here, so just move along!

“The BBC is recognised by audiences in the UK and around the world as a provider of news that you can trust. Our website, like our TV and radio services, strives for journalism that is accurate, impartial, independent and fair.”

The Barely British Corporation would never stoop to lowly tabloid tricks…

There are a lot of folks politicizing Covid-19, but President Trump is not one of them.

… or would they? There is a good case for criticizing the World Health Organization for screwing the pooch by playing politics in the early days of the accurately named Chinese/Wuhan virus, Covid-19. Fake News outlets like the BBC, CNN, MSNBC and like ilk have used the outbreak to terrorize the planet and bludgeon President Trump. If it bleeds, it leads. For example, the Fake News Networks are reporting that if you take hydroxychloroquine YOU MIGHT DIE! They simply discount the fact that millions of people around the world take hydroxychloroquine every single day AND DO NOT DIE! They simply discount the fact that providers know how to prescribe and monitor the drug, so if a patient starts having side effects THEY STOP TAKING THE DRUG BEFORE THEY DIE! If hydroxychloroquine can reduce inflammation in the lungs and stop a victim of Covid-19 from GOING INTO RESPIRATORY ARREST AND DYING, it is worthy of hopeful commentary. Instead, the BBC would rather keep hating my president.

Worry… Unproven… Threats… Retaliation… I am sorry, but these headlines are biased as hell.

Seriously, approximately 320,000 people die from inhaling dihydrogen monoxide every year. How many people die from taking hydroxychloroquine every year? In terms of math, the number is so low it is not statistically significant.

The BBC’s call to end the politicization of Covid-19 could be positive. By inferring President Trump is the problem, instead of Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck-U Schumer, China, Russia, and a legion of other bad-actors like Rachel Madcow (What the hell is wrong with Rhodes Scholars, anyway? Bill Clinton? Pete Buttigieg? Cory Booker? Susan Rice? George Stephanopoulos? Do you see a pattern of personality disorders here?), the BBC reveals they are just another tabloid, Fake News outlet.

President Trump is working hard to deal with a global pandemic that previous administrations left us woefully unprepared. He is doing a damn good job, and if anybody thinks a President Clinton, Biden or Sanders could have done better, you best read up on their comments between January 21st and February 14th. They all disavowed the President’s early, yet politically unpopular actions. Actions that saved tens of thousands of American lives.

The BBC Suppresses Sexual Assault Allegations Against Joe Biden

It took Tara Reade a year of indecision to finally come forward and publicly describe her sexual assault by then-senator Joe Biden. A terrifying endeavor considering the ease with which America’s progressive left destroys people. The alleged assault took place in 1993 when she was a staffer with the then fifty year old senator. She finally told of the events to the best of her ability in March of 2020. Ms. Reade’s allegations are far more articulate and verifiable than those of Christine Blasey Ford’s imaginings, yet the left-wing, fake news media is ignoring the accusations in total.

You have to ask yourself, with all of Joe Biden’s perv behavior, why does the BBC give him a pass? Are they meddling in our election process?

After devoting hundreds of articles to the Brett Kavanaugh/Christine Balsey Ford story, along with a desperate attempt to link President Trump to sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein rather than Epstein pal, Bill Clinton, the Barely British news Corporation is frozen crickets when it comes to sexual assault and harassment allegations against presidential candidate, Joe Biden. Why? It suits their anti-Trump agenda.

The BBC published dozens of articles about allegations against President Trump.

Reade’s experience with the now demented, hair sniffing, Joe Biden has been completely ignored by the Barely British Corp. Why? Because the BBC is a leftist, globalist organization that despises all Constitutional, conservative thinking. That’s why. Rather than reporting the news in an unbiased fashion, they are ignoring this story because they want Biden to win the election. Biden was not always organically senile. He used to be a top-flight predator, and now the BBC is covering for him because they hate Donald Trump. Don’t believe me? Just wait.

BBC Mocks American Pastor’s Death

Leftist BBC implies karmic justice in this mean-spirited headline

It is time to start calling out the leftist, tabloid rag, BBC News. On a daily basis their writers and editors mock, belittle and outright lie about American conservatives and Christians. Here is a prime example. A good man, a Christian pastor, with a beautiful family, who tragically dies from Covid-19. While his family is grieving and coping with the loss of their father and husband, the sanctimonious, progtards at the BBC could not help but take a shot at the man. In a compulsive fit, BBC writer Aleem Maqbool could not stop himself from making barbed comments about Pastor Spradlin as well as taking a shot at President Trump.

‘Even as he was sick, he posted on social media about “hysteria” surrounding the virus.

On the 13th of March Pastor Spradlin shared on Facebook a misleading post comparing swine flu and coronavirus deaths.

It suggested that Barack Obama and Donald Trump respectively had been treated very differently by the media and that it was a politically motivated ploy to harm President Trump.

Earlier the very same day, the president himself had insinuated something very similar at a news conference.’

It was a cruel ‘gotcha’ article and it made the BBC’s front page for a day. It served no newsworthy purpose except to imply Pastor Spradlin got what he deserved. I have had enough of this leftist, progressive shit.
