    Default Youtube strikes, bans and censorship, with links to backup and alternative sites

    .
    Youtube (now owned by the Alphabet, the parent company of Google) seems to be stepping up their censorship of "alternative" sites that don't agree with their views.

    In previous months, Youtube was "demonetizing" some sites and some videos, reducing income to some sites.

    In the last day, as I write this,Youtube has issued strikes against two Youtube channels that I frequently visit, for (it seems) criticizing the "mainstream" (they wish it was mainstream) news reports, such as from CNN, on a recent school shooting in Florida.

    I am creating this thread to track Youtube channels that are, in the view of the poster, being unfairly demonetized, or unfairly getting strikes, bans or removals, and to post alternative ways to find the work of such valued contributors, if they are banned from Youtube.

    I would like this thread to be a resource that Avalon members and guest readers can use, to continue to find the work of the contributors they value, when Youtube is blocking those contributors.

    Examples of videos with key evidence opposing the "mainstream" story of key events, such as evidence that CNN was helping to script the comments of David Hogg about the recent Florida school shooting, may also occasionally be useful. I saw that video (the uncut version); it was damning of CNN and Hogg; but I didn't download and save it before Youtube censored every copy of it that they could find, so I can't post that on some relevant thread on Avalon, with a link from this thread.

    I'd like to ask that we don't get too involved into the discussion of any particular one of the controversial stories of which Youtube is apparently trying to control the narrative. For more detailed discussions of any such story, please link to some other thread, that focuses on that particular story.

    Let's keep this thread a useful resource,
    • for people to quickly scan for channels they might want to follow, despite Youtube strikes and bans,
    • for people to find other ways to continue to follow the work of such publishers, off Youtube,
    • for links to key evidentiary videos that Youtube has taken down,
    • for links to other Avalon threads, discussing in more detail a particular "Youtube banning" incident,
    • for people to track Youtube's efforts to shape the narrative and control the news.
    • for alternative websites where such work, especially videos, can be found.
    One more thing - please make an effort to see if a particular report that you're making has already been made on this thread, to avoid the noise of too many duplicates. If you see a duplicate and choose to report it, I will consider combining or merging the duplicate posts into one post, if that seems right to me.

    Thanks.

    Cidersomerset has started a discussion of Youtube's threatening to shut down Alex Jones channel, in the thread U 'TUBE is cracking down as the Deep State empire is ' 3 striking' back....23/1/18.

    Alex Jones can also be found on his own website, http://infowars.com

    ===

    P.S. -- Groan ... here's how CNN reported the Youtube strike on Alex Jones Youtube channel:
    Quote (CNN) InfoWars, a far-right media organization run by Alex Jones and known for peddling unfounded conspiracy theories, is on thin ice with YouTube after it posted a video that portrayed the survivors of the Parkland school shooting as actors.
    Paul Joseph Watson (who works for Alex Jones) replied today to CNN's efforts to take down Alex Jones' Youtube channel, in an article entitled: CNN is Directly Lobbying YouTube to Shut Down Infowars - News network flags Infowars videos about Parkland shooting in bid to get channel terminated.

    A couple of days ago, Mandy Bombard's "Bombard's Body Language" Youtube channel was demonetized, and received a Strike (three Youtube Strike's and you're banned from Youtube) for her David Hogg video. CNN interviewed Hogg about the Florida school shooting as part of their anti-gun agenda.

    Bombard's Body Language can also be found on her Patreon site: https://www.patreon.com/BombardsBodyLanguage

    ===

    P.S. -- Bombard just reported an hour ago, on her Patreon site, that she's gotten another Youtube strike, again for her work on the Florida school shooting: https://www.patreon.com/posts/back-in-17172705

    The above linked thread of Cidersomerset also reports that Youtube has informed Richie Allen that It Will Soon Delete The Richie Allen Show Channel.

    Ritchie Allen also runs the forum http://forums.richieallen.co.uk/ and the website https://www.richieallen.co.uk/.

    ===

    P.S. -- The Ritchie Allen Show Youtube channel had 76,000 subscribers and 1,400 videos, at the time of its removal from Youtube.

    Thanks Paul.

    Jake Morphonios, www.blackstoneintel.com (named after William Blackstone) who has done and is doing some brilliant work around a whole host of things, and particularly his continuing investigation into the Las Vegas shootings. A prime subject of community strikes who has organised things in a way that you can still check out his work - even via youtube amazingly - by engaging with his new site.

    Lovely.

    If youtube access for alt' types collapses, the 'Forum' format might become a new surge of multimedia development.

    The very high cost of video hosting is the main nut to crack. Google seems to be subsidising it to stay in control of it. Can anyone else pour money into it like they can ?

    Over to you Mr Trump, this requires state responsibility and a level playing field initiative. In these times, a search engine should be a public utility. Right now, it's a goldmine pouring money into corporate control of the internet.

    Dennis Prager continues to report that Youtube is restricting some of his work, such as in this report from three days ago: YouTube Restricts PragerU’s Planned Parenthood Video, Then Reverses Course, and in his podcast yesterday here.

    Some (perhaps most, I don't know) of Prager's work can also be found at https://www.prageru.com/

    Sarah Westall got hit with a strike and then it was reversed. YouTube automatically demonetizes her vids and then puts them back on. In this 10 minute vid, Sarah shares her personal stats and talks of how other YouTubers are getting hit.

    A deep look at the censorship that my channel is experiencing. I have been collecting data and now I am able to show you some of the items that I and many others have been experiencing. While there are still many other videos and examples I could show viewers, these examples should give you a good look at what its like to be targeted and silenced.

    I also point out some of the other egregious examples that have happened over the last year. Hopefully this will serve as an educational tool and a wake up call to citizens to fight for our right to free speech. Freedom does not exist if you do not have Free Speech. If they can go after me, then they can go after YOU.

    YouTube has been playing with the views on Gemma Beall’s channel. A couple of months back, I noticed the views actually dropped on one of the videos. Their subscriber count is low, but the information is designed to wake people up about education, religion, government, media and the new age propaganda.

    Over the last couple of weeks, their videos don’t show up in my news feed, and the notification bell is unreliable, so I’ve bookmarked their site. Other subscribers report the same in the comment section.

    At the same time they seem to be letting the Flat Earth videos run wild. Crow777 got his YouTube page pulled and he actually got it back same with Vinny Eastwood I believe and a few others.

    A channel i check on daily , thepreparedmind , it's a sort of doomsday prepper channel , he has been knee deep in it ... finally he went and created his own page to go around youtube censorship ... now i get information once a week instead of everyday , thanks youtube , making me always behind ... there is definitely a social media war to control what is available ... the deep state can't lie so easily anymore ...

    P.S. -- ThePreparedMind Youtube channel is still up, though not where "John" focuses his work, as he explained in August 2017 in this post on his website https://thepreparedmind.club. -- Paul.

    In related news, though not specifically involving Youtube, the social media and discussion website Medium has removed without prior notice all the accounts of Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, and Laura Loomer.

    This was reported two days ago both by Julian Assange in this tweet, and by Paris Martineau in this post. The CEO of Medium is Evan Williams, who was also a Twitter co-founder.

    Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, and Laura Loomer can still be found on their twitter accounts, https://twitter.com/Cernovich, https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec, and https://twitter.com/LauraLoomer, respectively.

    KiwiElf tracked down a copy of a key piece of evidence in the recent Florida school shooting that has been scrubbed multiple times from Youtube. The video shows what appears to be the confused details in an interview of one David Hogg, contradicting the official narrative and apparently scripted. See this post of mine, and KiwiElf's post, just before it, for more details. My thanks to Youtuber Marko Rodin who had and uploaded another copy of this video, and to KiwiElf, who noticed and posted that video here, before it was scrubbed again from Youtube.

    This is very depressing. I listen to Richie Allen's show pretty much daily and I discovered last night that he's been deleted. This is a reminder for me to remember to start getting in the habit of ripping every youtube video that has important info and keeping it backed up safe. I'm also wondering if I should be putting more effort in to buying physical books rather than digital copies that can be removed ....

    Facebook is changing beyond recognition for many too - myself included. I only use it to connect with other musicians these days, but still, all the informative posts and articles are rapidly disappearing from my feed and its mainly mindless garbage. I have to look for stuff.

    Where does it stop? First its those that question the narrative, next it could be say, the invaluable information and documentaries about our health. For example, there's tons of excellent videos looking at the dairy industry and our health. I recently learned that the dairy industry's profits dropped by a whopping 11% last year as a result of people spreading the word ... So I can see where its going, next it will be huge industries demanding the censorship of anyone who exposes what they're doing to us.

    Apologies for rambling but this is a clear path here - first its controlling our perception, next it will be our health, then it could be any content that unites and provides a platform for experiencers ...

    I really hope the whole thing collapses and something new arises

    Quote (CNN) InfoWars, a far-right media organization run by Alex Jones and known for peddling unfounded conspiracy theories, is on thin ice with YouTube after it posted a video that portrayed the survivors of the Parkland school shooting as actors.

    "They" really are after any inklings of the presence of crisis actors*: from Jim Stone:
    Fox News: Florida House aide fired after claiming Florida shooting survivors are 'actors'
    An aide to a Florida House lawmaker was fired Tuesday after he said that Parkland students who were speaking out on gun control after Wednesday's mass shooting were paid actors.

    Benjamin Kelly, the aide to Republican Rep. Shawn Harrison, emailed Tampa Bay Times reporter Alex Leary to claim that two Marjory Stoneman Douglas students who appeared on CNN weren’t actually survivors of the attack.

    An aide to state Rep. Shawn Harrison, using state email, sent me this: "Both kids in the picture are not students here but actors that travel to various crisis when they happen." Kelly reportedly emailed the newspaper. When the Tampa Bay reporter asked for proof, the House aide sent a follow-up email claiming the same student who appeared on CNN, David Hogg, was in another state hundreds of miles away.


    Jim's comment: If Fox reported this or even mentioned actors at all, the wheels just fell off. The rest of the Fox report, (very detailed) is here.

    ===============================================

    All that simply because a certain David Hogg is a CNN mouth piece AND a crisis actor...

    Very odd - CNN witness caught rehearsing his lines

    My question with this - How on earth did this video ever get out? Someone at CNN is onto something and hates the program, this type of footage does not get out unless someone is pissed. In my opinion, it would not prove the witness is lying, until it got released like this, there's no freaking way this got approved, someone wants the story BUSTED. This is the normal .3gp format I have always posted, right click to save, this is a really damning piece of video. HOW ON EARTH did this ever get out?

    Ha ha ha, if this kid was speaking about something that actually happened, he would not be tripping all over his sh*t, he'd just recall it from memory and say it outright. A drill? with police firing blanks? You mean, like what he said clearly in the other video, without slipping and stammering? YOU BET

    To save bandwidth and not max out the main server, this is a low res .3gp that will play on phones, Linux, and most other systems. If it does not play, try it on a different computer. This can be right clicked and saved.




    Right click the picture to save the video, double click to play. This has been compressed down to less than a megabyte and is in 3gp format, which plays on phones, Knoppix, and usually in Windows.


    Nicholas cruz did not do the shooting and a bumbling media blew the whole psy op clean open

    "She said, Hey I just heard shots fired, I'm surprised it's not you. Just kidding. And then he had this reaction like "what?"

    Good list this. I've used them a fair bit.

    I'll offer to include http://web.archive.org/ as well, but, there is no guarantee that you'll actually find necessarily bang up to date stuff there. Network television resource programmes and bulletins on this site may be included but there'll be a bit of 'hit and hope' with that, probably.

    Relating to this topic, I was wondering if these 'soft bans' or de-promoting certain content is also reflected on the Youtube homepage, where their algorithm recommends certain content for us. Not sure if this is a new trend or has been like this for ages, not really checked before - or whether this is even relevant. But this is what I found.

    From the top of the page going down, I see channel after channel I have never visited before. Vids associated with nothing I have ever shown any interest in. Maybe these outlets/channels pay premiums for high listings, I don't know. Anyway, the very first two - top listed and 'recommended for you' are:

    1. Bill Gates Chats with Ellen for the First Time - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5NJQiY9AuY
    2. Billionaire Bill Gates Guesses Grocery Store Prices - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ad_higXixRA

    curious much? I've not watched any Bill Gates videos recently, can't think I've ever watched any. I have never even accidently watched bloody Ellen Degeneres.

    Below it, MY recommended channels (tailored specially for MY interest! i assume)

    (in order)

    - Talk Shows - including Kimmel (never seen it), Stephen Colbert (never seen), Anne Coulter (never heard of), Good Morning Britain (give me a break)

    - Dark Journalist - Correct, Youtube got this right

    - X-Factor -with vids of various acts (forgive me while I gag a little)

    - This Morning, in other words, british daytime TV garbage (nowhere near my radar)

    - Sports Highlights, 2 football highlights clips (this is true, I do watch these) 3 basketball vids (never seen, not my sport)

    - Fade to Black, Jimmy Church, yup that one's true

    - Eminem, the rapper, with 3 Eminem vids and 1 Jay-Z (I have no watching history of this at all)

    - Ed Sheeren
    , a musician apparently, who I have no knowledge of, or interest in

    - Indie Music, a vid of a street busker, and 1 vid about Chuck Norris strangely... Youtube must have me confused with someone else

    - Entertainment, total randomness, including something about Jennifer Lawrence (who?), and a vid on a food tasting test

    - Lionel Nation, has appeared for me recently, and this is an accurate entry on the list of recommendations.

    - Software, various computer related videos, Qanon also appears here, so accurate.

    - Gaming, various gaming videos, which sometimes I do watch, like latest releases - but all listed games here are not my thing at all, they look like manga type games.

    So, most of these are just plain wrong. Now, way down the page, after a further 4 listings, including more football, film trailers, music, another gaming entry, I come to my actual most frequently visited channels of late:

    -Destroying the Illusion
    -Wikipolitics
    -Alex Jones
    -Jerome Corsi
    -Qanon and related etc.
