You will notice right at the top of the output there is a hint on getting an unfiltered object.  Try using the -B flag on your query to get around this.

[elm:usrako]: whois -h rr.arin.net " 64.50.224.0 "
% This is the ARIN Routing Registry.

% Note: this output has been filtered.
%       To receive output for a database update, use the "-B" flag.
