If Pizza Gate is not real there sure is one Herculean effort to cover it up. ISIS origins as well for that matter. I found it very odd that when ISIS first started coming into the news their propaganda videos were of the traditional nature. Basic on the ground rough style poor quality with no real flow. Typical of what you would find with someone who is shooting video on the go from a smart phone.

Then all of a sudden ISIS starts coming out with propaganda videos that rival the quality and production of a multi-million dollar high budget Hollywood film trailer. It's like overnight they instantly understood and mastered lighting, blocking, set depth, immaculate costume coordination, scene sequencing, etc. Not to mention how they scored the music with each scene building up to the execution. This reeks of alphabet agency involvement.

Perhaps Swann was getting into waters it was suggested he no longer tread? We can only speculate but anytime anyone suddenly stops what they are doing it is because they are told to.

I figured going dark meant just not posting for a while. Apparently my assumption was wrong.

That's crazy. Going dark suggests he's being quiet by choice.

Having his media presence deleted from the internet across multiple platforms implies something different and beyond. He's been threatened and years of work erased.

In the traditional sense the term "going dark" originated from the intelligence field. When an asset was in the field and "went dark" they intentionally cut themselves off from all contact with anyone for a period of time. Usually because there was an imminent threat to their physical safety. They flat out disappeared.

In the capacity in which Ben is using this term I again will assert that it was strongly suggested to him he stop his investigative research into both Pizza Gate and ISIS. Both of which I will continue to assert have direct ties to a particular alphabet agency.

Snarl....... do you know this person?

Nope. I've already stated that.

The real question is: Is there even one member of ATS who 'really' knows who the guy is?

For what it's worth, I followed Ben Swann's reporting very closely in 2012, and he was one of only a few journalists who reported fairly and truthfully on Ron Paul.

He was very well liked in the ATS community and even did an AMA here on ATS.

He was among a dying breed of true journalists. Now, apparently not anymore.

Anyone more tech savvy know why the same ip address would show up as being on two different servers?

I don't know why I get knocked around here. Am I knocking anyone??

I'm just saying, "Take a look at him at face value."

You've made over 6,000 posts on the boards. I have more respect for you than I have for some stranger named Ben Swann who was a television personality and took a job with RT once upon a time.

If you want to get in trouble with a certain type of rabbit, you could go and look at the hole those two came from. You'll be disgusted and surprised. I'm wondering if Swann did the same and is problem solving the Hastings link, or funnily enough maybe Swann just wanted to step out of this for a bit. The truth is kind of exhausting at times (not that he's lying or getting in a spot, but rather just taking a break before a story that's all)

I wasn't trying to knock you, just providing some background! There's nothing wrong with wanting to understand more info on the guy. No offence was meant, take care.

Can anyone confirm whether or not he's back on air today?

I believe he should have already appeared at his anchor position today?

Why would I get into trouble?

Some Rabbits bite when you start poking around rabbit holes (ie Christopher Dorner, Michael Hastings, to name a few hole pokers)

Also a hole poker. So yep, some of those rabbits like to bite when poked.

So, wasn't something supposed to happen by the 1st?

Colour me disappointed.

My passive, indirect, and benign observation hardly compares to hole poking. However, what Ben Swann has been purportedly doing does qualify.
