I provided a significant portion of the underlying research that led to the American Library Association being labeled as one of the nation's leading porn facilitators in April 2013. National attention was so viral, so widespread, that ALA was forced to respond quickly, and in doing so, it merely doubled down on its facilitation of porn, which it implicitly terms "constitutionally protected materials" or "information." ALA ignores US v. ALA, 539 US 194 (2003), a case it lost while trying to block library filtering: "public libraries' use of Internet filtering software does not violate their patrons' First Amendment rights;" "public libraries have traditionally excluded pornographic material." ALA and similar groups now work to induce communities to include such material.
I have recorded an ALA award winning author essentially admitting ALA fakes its annual top 10 list of challenged books. Ever since I proved ALA is faking the supposed "banning" of books dealing with homosexuality, no subsequent list has included such a book despite one topping the list for half a decade. The extent of the "banning" of such books was faked by ALA.
I brought to national attention that ALA was anonymously promoting "net neutrality" on Wikipedia despite ethical and federal tax codes, and ALA reacted by having me blocked from Wikipedia.
Associated Press uses law enforcement experts found while searching my site, likely since the ALA/American Libraries and the independent Library Journal do not report on what they do not want people to hear.

Media Interview Talking Points: Library Law Allows Porn Exclusion and Allows Governments to Ensure Same
Library leaders fear debating me: "Porn in Public Libraries," by Walter Kane, Kane In Your Corner, News 12 New Jersey, 5-6 November 2011.
Most significantly, the author of the Children's Internet Protection Act says exactly what I have been saying:
- CIPA Author Exposes ALA Deception; Ernest Istook Who Authored Children's Internet Protection Act Calls Out American Library Association for Using Legal Tactics to Claim First Amendment Protection for Public Library Pornography Viewing, Causing Librarians to Be Indifferent and Leave Children Unprotected
I help people and governments across the nation and internationally. For example, here's how to make libraries safer:
I also assist in writing legislation and, using my background as an attorney, may assist with litigation and/or expert evaluation/testimony. I am even a volunteer librarian, though I have no training from an ALA-accredited library school. But I really love my volunteer work and I'm gaining even more of an appreciation for professional librarians, and especially patrons.
ALA Acknowledges SafeLibraries
Some evidence of ALA recognition of my success in informing communities includes:
- An American Library Association [ALA] speaker acknowledges "our profession is subject to change by ... Safe ... Libraries ... [who] seek[s] to educate people and politicians about who controls public libraries and that citizens should, not the ALA."
- The ALA falsely labels me as "pro-censorship" atop its leading propaganda site, Banned Books Week (this is the site having one of the instances of ALA plagiarism, by the way):

- The ALA lists me in its "Intellectual Freedom Manual" as "acting to restrict information in libraries," which I do not. It is the ALA that acts to restrict local control over local libraries using well-honed propaganda tracing its roots back to an Illinois state ACLU leader joining the ALA and creating the "Office for Intellectual Freedom" that changed how librarians approached children. No longer would librarians protect children from inappropriate material; now it's just the opposite. In working to expose these facts, I have apparently become the ALA's leading opponent, and this is just more evidence, especially given the other groups listed are quiescent:

Members of the Media
Members of the media seeking another point of view on school book challenges or library crimes and coverups are welcome to contact me at any time. Unlike the ALA, I provide accurate information, including a list of reliable sources where anyone can determine the truth of the matter for themselves. Hint: US v. ALA and Bd of Educ. v. Pico.
