Amer. Thinker appears to censor me bout a post I wrote with their Editor in 2014

Now it appears Amer. Thinker wants to censor a post and a link to an American Thinker blog post written by me and Editor in Chief Thomas Lifson. This happened as I was adding additional information to an AT article that was critical of Tucker Carlson's and Erick Erickson's attacks on Sidney Powell's recent refusal to try 2020 election tampering in a public journalistic forum before heading to court.

The fine article I tried to comment on was called The Trump Team's Real Strategy by Sally Zelikovsky. If and when my comments are posted at Amer. Thinker, I will update the readers at the Aviary. 

UPDATE: I just received an email from American Thinker Deputy Editor Drew Belsky saying that my email (sent to them) was forwarded to writer Sally Zelikovsky.

I wrote these following words in an email to the Editors of American Thinker:

Subject: Amer. Thinker holds up my comment on 2014 Erick Erickson hoax

Thomas, Sally Zelikovsky,  and editors,

I just wrote a comment about a Sally Zelikovsky article at Amer. Thinker, a piece talking about Tucker Carlson and Erick Erickson both attacking Trump superlawyer Sidney Powell. I detailed and linked to a 2014 blog piece written by myself and Thomas Lifson (his part being a retraction of a lie and hoax Erick Erickson posted).

The first version of my comment I did not copy, thinking - perhaps foolishly - that it would be instantly approved. It was not. So a wrote another comment, this time copying it for my own records. Here it is below....

In 2014, Erick Erickson, then editor of the Red State website (Wikipedia will confirm that in its "Red State" listing), posted a hoax, a falsehood which was later admitted by them. I trusted Mr. Erickson's reputation and used his website's article in a blog piece I wrote for American Thinker which soon after had to be retracted by the Editor. See

Erickson hurt himself and also hurt Amer. Thinker and myself with this outrageous hoax.


Whether your organization agrees to post this comment about a past embarrassment to Erickson, AT and myself - or not, I believe this this set of facts is background information worth knowing. I hope you find this email worth showing to Sally Zelikovsky.

1 I hope they post that. After all, it's the Left that does the censoring.
