MassResistance.com was Forced to Another Webhost by Flanders

Adam Flanders

MassResistance.com has been exposing the heinous homosexual sex offender Adam Flanders much to his chagrin. Flanders and his homosexual legal team have been trying to combat MassResistance’s expos√© by a tactic undoubtedly learned from Radical Muslims known as Lawfare. The Lawfare tactic is to smother a defendant with litigation to the point the legal fees make the defendant go broke even if or especially if his writing is the truth.

In MassResistance’s case I cross posted about the legal games of homosexual Adam Flanders and Lawfare homosexuals’ activists directly after my thoughts entitled, “Maine Judges Protect Man/Boy Sex.”

I now find out for awhile MassResistance’s website was shut down by homosexual activist complaints. MassResistance even reports that usually staunchly Conservative web news site WND backed away from reporting on Adam Flanders because of threats of litigation. Homosexual Flanders has taken the practice of SWATing to a new level by utilizing Leftist activist Judges like Maine’s District Judge Patricia G. Worth to take false information to execute a restraining order against Brian Camenker of MassResistance. As I wrote above I cross posted the MassResistance version in the link above. HERE is an independent report by Gina Miller at Renew America that backs up the MassResistance version.

SWATing began as a prank by Leftists against Conservative Bloggers and Pundits. SWATing has evolved into a practice in which Leftists attempt to intimidate Conservatives for writing anti-Leftist material. Leftists would call 911 and cops would show up at a Conservative’s home guns raring to blaze until it was discovered it was a prank. You can see how the prank can get out of hand and out of hand translates into intimidation to prevent Free Speech.

"SWAT-ing" refers to a hoax in which an anonymous prankster falsely reports a violent crime at an unsuspecting person's home, prompting a police team to respond to the location believing a dangerous situation is at hand.

The illegal practice has in recent months targeted well-known conservative writers and commentators, including Erick Erickson, founder of the blog RedState.com -- who claims he was eating dinner with his family in May when a SWAT team surrounded his home following such a false 911 call.

The growing trend, which some say could one day prove deadly, had conservatives on edge at the annual RightOnline conference of right-wing bloggers and activists in Las Vegas this weekend.

GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss is taking up the cause of a number of conservative bloggers who claim they have been targeted and harassed with such tactics as 'SWAT-ing' where 911 emergency teams are sent to a blogger's house.

The harassment has allegedly happened in retaliation for what they have written and Chambliss has asked Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate, according to
ABC News.

“I am writing with concern regarding recent reports that several members of the community of online political commentators have been targeted with harassing and frightening actions. Any potentially criminal action that incites fear, seeks to silence a dissenting opinion, and collaterally wastes the resources of law enforcement should be given close scrutiny at all levels,” Chambliss wrote, according to the report.

“Regardless of any potential political differences that may exist, threats and intimidation have no place in our national political discourse. Those who choose to enter into that political discourse should not have to worry about potential threats to their or their family’s safety,” Chambliss continued. “While I am certain that local law enforcement is reviewing each of these instances, I am asking you to please look into each of these cases as well to determine if any federal laws may have been violated. Future targets of SWAT-ting, whether engaged in political speech or not, may not be so fortunate as to escape physical harm.” (

Below is a forwarded MassResistance email from friend Solid Snake that reveals the details of homosexual lawfare against being exposed. I am posting the email because the MassResistance post is slightly different and can be read HERE.

1. MassResistance web site shut down after homosexual activist threatens web hosting company -- and company caves in! Latest in vicious (and illegal) "swat" campaign against conservatives.

The MassResistance website was completely shut down last week after a homosexual activist and convicted sex offender threatened the web hosting company, and the company caved in. Although the site has finally come back up, (after nearly three days of being down) the activist has now sent a threat to the owner of the owner of MassResistance's new hosting company.

Taken down by hosting company: Starting on Monday afternoon this is what people saw when they went to the MassResistance website.

MassResistance Look after Taken Down

Adam Flanders is a well-known homosexual activist in Maine who has been convicted of molesting a 14-year-old boy and is a registered sex offender. In January 2007, Flanders wrote and publicly distributed a shocking letter describing the sexual acting out at a "gay youth" organization, including adult men having sex with boys. Flanders delivered the letter to local police departments, the local media, and pro-family groups. Now, five years later, Flanders had a change of heart and wants it removed from pro-family sites that have posted it. He has intimidated every pro-family group  into removing it -- except MassResistance.


Adam Flanders Mug Shot
"Gay youth clubs" run by adults in schools and in communities are the worst nightmare of every parent with a vulnerable child. We have worked with parents who agonized terribly over their kids' involvement with them. Flanders' letter was an important revelation of what had been long suspected -- and Flanders now realizes that. (Interesting, the letter is also still posted on at least one local Maine news site but since they are not "pro-family" Flanders has ignored it.)

But as our readers know, MassResistance has a long history of not backing down to threats from homosexual activists regarding material we've exposed.

The vicious "SWATing" tactics now being used against conservatives

Known as "SWATing," Flanders' action can be seen as
part of a disturbing new strategy being used around the country to stifle free speech by viciously harassing conservative web sites, bloggers, and writers, by going after the individuals personally. This includes threats, frivolous lawsuits, false police crime reports, phony harassment filings, other various acts of terror and intimidation. Flanders has filed a false harassment complaint in a Maine District Court against Brian Camenker of MassResistance, personally, and the judge unbelievably agreed to the restraining order! In Massachusetts, a far-left pro-homosexual group has filed a lawsuit against Pastor Scott Lively for international "crimes against humanity" because of his pro-family activism.

Flanders has indicated in his emails that he is working in concert with radical homosexual groups around the country.

Web hosting company for MassResistance site caves in

On Monday afternoon, June 11,
HostExcellence, located in Kentucky, decided to accommodate Flanders' demand that they shut us down. The MassResistance website -- which has been up for nearly 15 years -- suddenly disappeared from the Internet.

Despite the fact that we had been hosted by HostExcellence for nearly eight years without any problems, the company was resolute. When HostExcellence began getting threats from Flanders they ordered us to take the material down or be shut down. We were contacted by Craig Witten, who works in the company's legal department, with that directive. (Strangely, we were first told he was a lawyer, then they said he's not a lawyer.) We explained to Witten the background of the situation, but he told us that doesn't matter. He said that shutting us down is simply a business decision. The company doesn't want to risk getting into a legal fight with those people, he said.

We suggested to Witten that by siding with a sex offender against a pro-family group helping parents, the company risks angering other pro-family people across the country, and sending a message that people's sites aren't safe from the ire of radicals like Flanders. Witten said that wasn't a concern of theirs. He added that the decision was final, and there's no one else at the company that we, or anyone, could talk to further about it. (This policy apparently reflects the sentiments of company president, Fathi Said.)

Threat to owner of MassResistance's new web hosting company

By Wednesday evening we had found a new hosting company and had finished most of the painstaking task of restoring the large MassResistance website onto its servers.

As soon as the new site was up, Flanders traced the server addresses to identify the company. He then sent two chilling personal emails to the owner, also located in New England. The first email contained a series of legal fabrications about MassResistance. In the second email, Flanders listed the company owner's full name, his home address, and his business address. (It was clearly meant to frighten him.) Flanders said he was giving him 24 hours to take down the MassResistance site. Flanders also threatened that he would begin various immediate legal actions against the owner personally, saying he was "personally culpable" and would be seeking "personal damages" from him.

The new web hosting company's owner is a committed Christian, and so far is standing tall on this. He knows that Flanders has no actual legal basis for his claims. But Flanders' range of threats and enraged intimidation tactics are naturally very worrisome to him and his family, to say the least.

Fighting back: Liberty Counsel steps up to help MassResistance!

As soon as word had gotten out that HostExcellence was considering shutting down MassResistance site, we got a call from Richard Mast, an attorney at
Liberty Counsel!
Liberty Counsel is a preeminent pro-family pro-bono law firm that has done great work around the country.

This past week Attorney Mast has put in a lot of work on behalf of MassResistance. He sent a strongly worded letter to the company president outlining the legal risks of their action against MassResistance, and has since spoken to a "real" attorney there. (We'll see what happens.) He has also communicated with authorities in Maine regarding Flanders, and is helping us with legal strategies to deal with him and his actions.

Local Maine attorney needed now for this: Help us find one!

From research so far, Flanders has likely broken a number of state and possibly federal laws in his harassment actions and abuse of the legal process. And his outrageous and frivolous harassment suits (which he's continuing to file) need to be confronted.
But unless we have attorneys to do this, it won't get done.
There's only so much Liberty Counsel can do (or has the time to do) from its offices in Florida and Washington, DC. Someone is who is aggressive and knowledgeable is needed on the ground in Maine to get the job done there, in the courtroom. This is an immediate need because we must move fast.

To our supporters in Maine: please help with this if you can.

(There is actually one "pro-family" attorney that national groups have used a lot. But we talked to him at length. He takes a fairly moderate approach to these issues, and is on not too interested in fighting this. We've seen too much of that among "pro-family" attorneys, unfortunately.)

Conservative media picks up on story

This story is starting to pick up steam. On both Monday and Tuesday, MassResistance was interviewed on the Bryan Fischer show on the
American Family Association radio network. We were also interviewed on the Dr. Michael Brown Show,
also syndicated across the country. Later that week were on radio in Maine.

Interviewed by American Family Association Radio on website shut down:



In addition, WorldNetDaily did two articles on this last week -- but unfortunately both have been taken down (See #2 below.)
The time to fight back is now!

The pro-family movement has a long history
of simply taking a defensive posture when confronted by radical activists. That has not served us well. At best, it temporarily "holds the line." Left-wing groups like GLAD and the ACLU, on the other hand, are always hyper-aggressive and willing to take us on with every creative strategy they can think of. The "gay marriage" decisions and the legal attack on DOMA are just two recent examples, also going back to the removal of all religious expression from schools.

You can take this to the bank: If Flanders is allowed to get away with this, his radical cohorts across the country will soon all be doing the same, and much worse. The time to fight is now.

In fact, the First Amendment covers legitimate news reporting and political opinion for everyone -- even if homosexual activists don't like it. Or, at least it's supposed to.

Soon after our site went down our office got a phone call from a web hosting country in a foreign country across the ocean. They said they'd be happy to host us if it's become too dangerous in America. We're thinking seriously about it. But has it really come to that?


2. WorldNetDaily removes articles reporting this incident after receiving threats from homosexual activist! A sad day for the "free" press.

As conservative news sites go, we have always held WorldNetDaily in very high regard. They bill themselves as a "Free Press for a Free People" and they have lived up to that. Over the years they have covered numerous cutting-edge MassResistance activities that others only covered afterwards. And we love reading their "Whistleblower" monthly magazine.

But their recent action is very troubling.

On Tuesday, June 12, WorldNetDaily published an article on Flanders' actions against MassResistance titled, "'Gay' activist uses 'SWAT' to silence critics." The following day, Wednesday, they posted another article about our site being taken down, titled, "Web company censors 'public' letter." They were thorough, well-written articles.

Then on Thursday, they were both missing from the WorldNetDaily site. We finally were able to speak to someone at WorldNetDaily who admitted that Flanders had contacted them and had made various claims and legal threats. So WorldNetDaily took them down . . . until further notice.

Someone retrieved the articles from the Google cache and sent them to us. Here's what WorldNetDaily removed from its site:



It seems that even exposing Obama is considered less risky for the conservative media than this. Why does our side cower before the homosexual bullies?



3. MassResistance needs your support now. Be a part of the fight!.

This past week has been pretty tough. MassResistance is the only group that didn't back down to the threats, intimidation, and harassment from the homosexual movement.

Our website got shut down over it. We worked around the clock and got it back up in less than three days. And the assault continues. The homosexual movement wants to destroy us more than ever.

But in these times, keeping you informed about the often horrible truth is preeminently important.

Please consider a generous donation to help us offset the costs we've encountered and to help us continue fighting back stronger than ever. We don't have a board of directors of rich businessmen. We depend on you.

4. Camenker of MassResistance addresses Plymouth Rock Tea Party, also speaks at MARA breakfast.

MassResistance continues to be in demand for speaking engagements across the state spreading the word on a number of critical issues that don't get reported by the mainstream media. But in particular, people want to know about the homosexual (and transgender) agenda in the public schools that no one else is exposing or even talking about.
 
On Sunday, June 3, Brian Camenker of MassResistance spoke at the "Politics and Eggs" breakfast at the Mildred F. Jefferson Chapter of the Massachusetts Association of Republican Assemblies (MARA) in Fall River. In contrast to most of the GOP establishment across the country, the Republican Assemblies proudly call themselves the "Republican wing of the Republican Party."

On Tuesday, June 6, Brian Camenker of MassResistance spoke at the Plymouth Rock Tea Party, the major Tea Party group in the South Shore of Massachusetts.
