YouTube now censors dissenting views


Last updated 12/23/2020 at 5:05pm

After a complete and coordinated media blackout of news that might shed a negative light on the Biden Family and their documented ties to Ukraine, Russia, China, Iran, Khazikstan etc., by the New York Post until after the election.

After Senate hearings with Twitter and Facebook CEOs.

After most states filed antitrust lawsuits with Google, YouTube, owned by Google, announces it will censor all content that mentions fraud and elections in the same video.

It’s tantamount to the phone company telling half the country, “You can’t say that on our phones. We are going to cut those calls as soon as we hear those words. Or, you don’t believe like we do, so you can’t use our phones.”

It’s an unbelievable problem for our First Amendment right of free speech and the freedom of dissent and the freedom to present grievances to the authorities.

YouTube made the announcement last Wednesday that they would start “removing any piece of content uploaded...that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election.”

The problem is that people are just starting to bring their evidence to light. No judges have seen the evidence yet. It’s only been presented in press conferences, Senate hearings, and in legislative hearings in the states where the problems have been alleged.

So what is now happening the last few days on YouTube is news coverage that contains both the words “fraud” and “election” in it is bleeped. What is even more interesting (and dangerous) is that it’s not just any news channel or yahoo talking, it’s also included the Senate Homeland Security hearing.

Jesse Binnall, one of Trump’s lawyers who was making an opening statement during the Senate Homeland Security hearing on election fraud also had his opening statement removed from YouTube.

This man was invited by Senators who have been duly elected by their constituents and are responsible for investigating election fraud. They wanted to hear all the evidence. He was under oath. How can we have transparency if our communication channels let their 20-somethings remove dissenting content because they think they know better than literally half the country?

Binnall wrote on his Twitter account, “YouTube has decided that my opening statement in the U.S. [Senate], given under oath and based upon hard evidence, is too dangerous for you to see; they removed it. To this day, ‘our evidence has never been refuted, only ignored.’ Why is Google so afraid of the truth? #BigBrother,” lawyer Jesse Binnall.

Binnell testified that, in Nevada, 42,000 people voted twice-same name-same address; 1500 dead people voted; 19,000 votes were from people who didn’t live in Nevada, also they weren’t military or students; 8,000 votes came from non-existent addresses; 15,000 votes were registered in commercial buildings or vacant addresses.

Another video of his testimony at the hearing, uploaded on Dec. 17 by a separate account, appeared to still be up.

While it’s a long shot for President Trump to actually turn the election around, there are legitimate outstanding legal challenges. There were alternative slates of electors who voted for Trump during the Dec. 14 meeting of the Electoral College and it appears that Republican legislators are planning to not accept the Biden/Harris Electoral College votes from the six states where alleged fraud took place. For goodness sakes they have 1000 sworn affidavits and video backing their claims. Why would people not want more transparency instead of less?

Binnall, who filed lawsuits in Nevada, said the election was riddled with fraud.

He said, “Thousands upon thousands of Nevada voters had their voices canceled out by election fraud and invalid ballots,” he told senators during the hearing.

Binnall also said that the campaign was denied transparency when it attempted to seek audits of voting machines or ballots.

As they probed the alleged irregularities, Binnall told the hearing that the campaign was refused access by state election officials to the code of voting machines for a forensic review of whether they were hooked up to the internet. They were requesting a forensic audit and weren’t allowed near the machines, much less an audit.

“We were denied [transparency] at every single turn” in Nevada, he said, adding that one Nevada official “locked himself in his office” and wouldn’t open the door when Trump’s lawyers tried to serve him a subpoena.

During a press conference last week from the Amistad Project on election dark money (that’s for next week), former Kansas AG Kline said a Wall Street Journal reporter asked him, “Mr. Kline, how can you criticize our election process? That undermines our democracy.”

Kline’s response was golden. He said, “Would we have ever uncovered Watergate, would we have ever revealed the excesses of the government in interning Japanese Americans? Would we have ever improved ourselves to the current condition where we recognize not only men, but women as well as those with different skin colors have inherent and intrinsic rights to be protected by the government without criticism of the government?”

What is happening with our journalists? To question authority undermines our democracy? Maybe these journalists need some world history lessons. To be in lockstep is dangerous. It is their job to be cynical and question authority. Transparency is paramount.

Every citizen has the right to stand up and complain.

The lifeblood of democracy is open discourse and debate.

The job of a journalist is to criticize when the government goes wrong and the manner in which the government conducts itself.

Cultural hegemony asks us all to shut up. Maybe with totalitarian governments, but not in America. What we are seeing today is a lack of transparency in government and media that criticises, shuts down dissenting views, and is complicit instead of being a watchman of the government.
