    Update: Jordan Sather's YouTube account is terminated.


    Quote Posted by KiwiElf (here)
    Sure enough, Jordan has had multiple warnings & bans from YouTube & Facebook since his recently deleted video. Details where he will be moving in the advent he's completely banned (likely!), and even Patreon could be under threat.

    UPDATE: Bombard's Body Language YouTube channel is terminated.



    Quote Posted by Paul (here)
    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

    Yes. To continue to use this thread as a log of the 'disappearances' (people aren't taken to the Gulag in the middle of the night; but their videos are) — here's who Jake referenced:
    • Charles Walton (reported in post #30 above)
    • According to Joe (YT channel still up, but no videos there now)
    • Charlton (afraid to upload, because he had no idea what YT may do, or why)

    Paul, how difficult would it be to have a way to scan youtube links all across this forum and count dead links ( due to closed accounts ) ?

    If that is doable, we have a good resource here to plot this. It could be presented as a graph on a time line.
    Interesting question.

    A little bit of work shows me that:
    • There are over 55,000 Youtube links on the forum.
    • My present tools require about 2.2 seconds/link to test a Youtube link.
    • This works out to over 33 hours of clock time to test all links.
    • I'd guess that it would take me several hours to process the resulting data.
    Doable ... but more work than I feel like spending on the task at present.

    Youtube terminated his channel, removed it, and denied his appeals, all within a few hours. Charles current best guess is that mentioning David Hogg (a student at the Florida school shooting) is risking being taken down from Youtube, without prior notice.
    A few days ago I put DAVID HOGG into Youtube Search and after x amount of vids loaded the bottom of the screen showed the usual list of page numbers. I clicked on the last page number and of course more loaded and at the bottom of each page more page numbers listed to select from. I kept selecting the last page number curious to see how many pages were up for this one individual. From memory I stopped around 65+ pages but this wasn’t the end of it.

    I also scrolled through each page and apart from a couple of of vids loaded for a Professor Hogg all the vids were for DAVID HOGG on Florida School Shooting.

    Today I went to look again. As I scrolled down to the list of page numbers there were none. I kept scrolling thinking Youtube had listed more vids per page, but no end in sight.

    I then typed in another name search and there are no page numbers listed after x amount of listed vids either - so it appears the format has changed.

    I’m wondering why as this is personally annoying for me as I use the page numbers as reference to go back to specific vids sometimes when researching.

    I then scrolled down DAVID HOGG’s search page and there are now loads of David Hogg’s showing up after about 100+ Florida “David Hogg” vids – consultants, lecturers, naturopath, martial arts, preachers, individuals, etc. A big difference from the other day i.e. if if was 10 vids per page x 65 pages = 650.

    I ‘m guessing that all the other David Hogg’s out there were more than annoyed and made complaints that they were not going to be found easily with the page number format.

    So I get that this new format works better as it is visually easier to scroll for any vid that doesn’t have Florida David Hogg’s face on it as opposed to having to click multiple page numbers.

    Just thought I would mention this as it could weigh in on why there is so much “censorship” on Hogg vids that are blocking the pipe, so to speak. Could it just be a temporary “scare tactic” to stop the Hogg tsunami from a technical position and things will return to “normal” at a later date? Or is there a greater conspiracy afoot and they are capitalizing on the Hogg tsunami to implement more censorship control?

    It took almost two minutes for the Tracy's vid to come up. Over the last couple of days, I gave up waiting for other tubers vids. To be fair, it may be because I have a slow internet plan.

    Same here - (I'm not on fibre but I've got the fastest broadband I can get here and a fairly fast PCi5), have noticed Firefox is taking quite a while now to load "new" pages or any pages once I clear the history/cache (long TLS handshake times initially).

    Tracey also did another video on Bitchute explaining her situation re YouTube vs other platforms, further to Bill's post above;

    This whole thing is just vile, almost unthinkable. It reminds me of the neo-fascist police state that rules Britain in the brilliant V for Vendetta, where all and any dissenting voice is immediately (sometimes brutally) silenced. To cite another work of fiction (prediction, prophecy?) we are sliding closer and closer to 1984.

    It's too late now anyway. It would have made an iconic graphic if it had started a couple of months back.

    I'm feeling really stupid on behalf of the whole alt 'community'. We were deliberately kettled. It cost them billions to do it, but they pulled it off brilliantly.

    Dr Jerome Corsi has just told David Knight of Infowars' Real News that he now has two YouTube strikes.

    One for a video on the Parkland, Florida school shooting.... and another for a video on Qanon. Both appeals were declined.

    David Knight made a very astute point: that the plan all along may have been to lure all the alt media journalists and commentators to the two major platforms, all beautifully set up for them: YouTube and Facebook.

    Then, with all the fish in the giant net, the drawstrings can now be closed tight.

    I definitely get a sense of panic from 'them' to go to these extreme lengths. And it's very new, judging by some vids they've suddenly taken down that have been around for years without any problem. They (not simply Youtube, but who controls Youtube and other media platforms) are lashing out violently - but possibly recklessly? Alex Jones was talking about suing CNN for slander.

    I feel that what ever is going to happen, this is only the beginning.

    Peter Thiel tells Google Chairman:
    "You have NO IDEA what you're doing"



    Peter Thiel: Google is a great company. It has 30,000 people, 20,000, or whatever the number. They have pretty safe jobs.

    On the other hand, Google has 30-40-50 billion in cash. It has no idea how to invest that money in technology effectively. And so, it prefers getting zero percent interest from Mr. Bernanke.

    Effectively, the cash sort of gets burned away over time through inflation, because there are no ideas that Google has on how to spend their money.


    Eric Schmidt: The core problem that we going foward is that there are two forces that are going to govern much of what's going to happen in the future:
    The first is globalization, which we're not going to repeal.
    And the second one is automation, which we're not going to repeal.
    And if you look, these problems are utimately cast in political systems in the West, and I think, eventually, globally as jobs problems. And the solution to jobs problems, in my view, is education... education at many levels, in many different ways, that we can discuss.

    I don't see another solution to this. It's absolutely true, as Peter says, that these gems, if you will, and you were nice enough to describe them so well, they're not employing enough people....


    Peter Thiel:
    You have $50 billion, Google, why don't you spend it on doing more in tech? Or, are you out of ideas?

    And, I think Google does more than most companies. You're trying to do things with self-driving cars, supposedly with asteroid mining... or maybe, that's just part of the propaganda ministry. And, you're doing more than Microsoft or Apple or alot of these other companies.

    Amazon is the only one of the big tech companies that's actually re-investing all its money - it has enough of a vision of the future - that they're actually able to re-invest all their profits.

    If we're living in an excelerating technological world, and you have 0% interest rates in the background, you should be able to invest all of your money in things that will return it many times over. And the fact that you're out of ideas... maybe, its a political problem - the government outlawed things - but its still a problem.


    Moderator:
    I'm going to the audience very soon, but I want you to have an opportunity to address....

    Eric Schmidt: I think I'll just let his statement stand.

    I'd beware of the counter reaction. If enough of us get upset that Google/Youtube/Facebook/Twitter can abuse their near-monopoly powers in these ways, then we might empower some Federal Agency to have greater control over them. That way leads to a further expansion of tyranny.

    RichieFromBoston can now be found on his backup Youtube channel RichiefromBoston II, his offroad Youtube channel JAILBREAK OVERLANDER, and his Patreon page RichieFromBoston.

    He says in this youtube video that he had almost a quarter of a million subscribers and fifty million views on his now terminated RichieFromBoston Youtube channel. He says on his Patreon page that he had over 1000 videos on that channel.
