My Bama Carry piece is a chronicle of a legitimate event with valid information for the people who read my stuff -- and who turn to KABA for reliable information as well. It is not a "Gottlieb is a so-and-so" attack piece. Besides, KABA is not supposed to be a personal site. It is a site that purports to bring newsworthy and noteworthy information to gun owners. That information is being suppressed due to a personal directive turns it into a personal site for the top guy, and if the Vanderboegh blackout is in force at that SAF holding, it is in force at all SAF holdings. It also renders other topics and ideas vulnerable to directive-based censorship.It's clear those are his sites and his rules. And he would rather maintain that control than to have my continued participation and support. That is all within his rights.Writing under such imposed censorship is not acceptable to me, nor is it consistent with my stated conditions for affiliating with the new JPFO. That is within my rights.
Thus we see the measure of Gottlieb's ego. This will severely impact David's income stream to the tune of several hundred dollars per month. If you wish to support him in his principled stand, then please send out links on your email lists and frequently visited sites to his Examiner column. He gets paid by the link at Examiner (pitiful recompense that it is) and it won't make up the difference, but it would be something. It is a damned shame that a guy like David, who has broken so many original stories, cannot get picked up by some other outlet.
