A spate of viewings prompts shut down of classic Alex Jones film
Google Video is once again censoring one of Alex Jones' documentary films after it received a huge jump in viewings last week and briefly entered the top ten on the back of heightened warnings of an impending terror attack.
Viewing figures for the 2004 Feature film Martial Law 9/11: Rise of the Police State suddenly sky rocketed to a total of 850,000 after we featured articles on Clergy Response Teams being trained by the federal government to "quell dissent" in the event of a declaration of martial law.

The viewing jump also coincided with the History Channel's 9/11 hit piece and continued warnings of an upcoming terror attack on U.S. soil.
As the film began to go viral it was suddenly disabled and at time of writing no longer plays at google video. Check the link for yourself here .
Note the figures in the picture to the right and how the film is now receiving no views at all.
This is not the first time Google has censored such material. In October of last year we revealed how Google Video re-imposed a crass censorship policy to intentionally stifle the growth of Alex Jones' Terror Storm documentary in an attempt to prevent it from reaching tens of millions of people.
Google covertly edited viewer statistics and blocked the film from entering its popular categories.
It is only when a film enters these prominent categories that it really begins to spread like wildfire and enter a cycle of exponential multiplication.
Figures that were heading towards 500,000 views for different uploads of Terrorstorm on its release were suddenly switched back to the low hundreds and tens of thousands. The number of viewer submitted comments remained the same but the viewership numbers were clearly and unfairly doctored.
After being bombarded with complaints Google admitted it had altered the figures but claimed it was a systemwide error, despite the fact that other films seemed not to have been affected. Astonishingly after promising it would not happen again the same thing happened the following week as Terrorstorm's viewing figures were again reset.
Google's censorship policies in China and even those directed against US websites that are mildly critical of China prove that the company that was founded on the principle "don't be evil," is slowly beginning to resemble the very controlling Big Brother image it claimed to despise.
The Google help page used to state that it did not censor search results. This policy has now changed and Google now carried that proviso that, "in response to local laws, regulations, or policies," it may censor certain content.
Google's reputation was also somewhat tainted late last year with exclusive revelations that it was seeded with intelligence funding and works in total cooperation with the CIA according to former agent Robert David Steele.
Martial Law: 9/11 Rise of the Police State was filmed primarily during the Republican Party's 2004 national convention in New York City.
The film focuses on the growing police state in the aftermath of 9/11, constant surveillance, a defined military presence, a militarized civilian police force, mass roundups and arrests of protesters. It also looks at some of the inconsistencies and questions surrounding the official version of events on 9/11.
The film is copyrighted, but Alex Jones has permitted and encouraged the distribution of his films for non-profit, educational purposes.
We urge our readers to contact Google Video , ask them to reinstate the film and demand that they stop their policy of selective censorship.
