I occasionally read Jeff Rense‘s web site, and it amazes me that the site that is supposedly one of the “top internet news sites” doesn’t have some redundancy, as it seems to be off the internet for a while (according to this post and this other post).  Some people have said that it was due to Rense’s anti Obama reports that his web site was shut down.

In any case, it seems strange that the people who supposedly want change, want to have silence from those who disagree with them.

[update]

What seems to have happened is that “TheHostPros.com”, which provides hosting for Rense, has had it’s dns servers knocked out.  Now it may be that they don’t have the DNS servers spread out (at one point I had everything on one box, of course that in the LAST century).  This has been a weak point with Rense for a while, and I used to have the IP address saved somewhere as a result, just because whenever anyone wanted to take Rense down, the DNS servers would be the first to go.

    rense.com is on 216.240.137.183 (A Record)
    dns ns0. ends in 216.240.137.185
    dns ns1. ends in 216.240.137.187

    those IP’s belong to United States Los Angeles Atmlink Inc

    now track their IP’s and find the IP with .137. completely gone:

    track them on this page:

    btw it’s really dumb to have your site with same IP range as your nameserver so I think rense.com is hosted on his home computer lol and his house burned down

    So I guess it had nothing to do with those eeeevil Obama people, eh…? Sometimes good not to over-speculate at the beginning
