Google regularly deletes YouTube videos linked to and from conservative and libertarian websites. It deleted a Fox News video in which Pete Hoekstra was debunking Clapper claims about the so-called Intelligence Community Assessment. This video was referred to from Fox News opinion piece Was Friday’s declassified report claiming Russian hacking of the 2016 election rigged? by former CIA analyst Fred Fleitz (2017-01-08). Fred Fleitz and Pete Hoekstra debunked this so-called Intelligence Community Assessment, leaked to the media by Clapper and released (in a redacted form) few hours before Congress certified Trump as the next President of the United States. The assessment was cooked under control of Brennan and Clapper and signed only by 3 agencies, including Brennan’s CIA and Comey’s FBI, apparently in a desperate attempt to prevent Trump’s inauguration. From the Fleitz’s article:
Friday night, during her last show on Fox News, Megyn Kelly asked former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra whether he accepted the conclusion by 17 intelligence agencies in a recently released declassified report that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and that this interference came at the direction of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The first link refers to a YouTube video where Pete Hoekstra points out that the assessment has been produced by only 3 agencies (out of the 17 ones) and is missing the most important ones — DIA and DHS. He also suggests that the entire purpose of this report is to undermine the legitimacy of Trump’s election. But if you click the link, YouTube shows you the following:
“Video unavailable. This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.” It doesn’t state the reason behind termination of account referenced by a regular contributor, respected author, and former CIA analyst at the Fox News website. The account probably couldn’t offend even a snowflake, and contained at least one video of extreme importance for the public. Why was the account and/or the video banned?
The only answer is that Google quietly removes from public view the most important evidence supporting conservative causes and President Trump. This isn’t necessarily written corporate policy. Possibly just a few low level employees that collaborate with the new Democratic Party, the Center for American Progress, or other foreign and DNC-affiliated entities are responsible.
Another video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oi2PYn6G54Q) of the same interview, linked from Two More Reviews: ODNI / CIA Russia Report Was Politically “Rigged”… on The Conservative Tree House has also been removed by Google/YouTube. Many small conservative websites have links to deleted YouTube videos.
Google’s actions hide evidence that supports conservative positions on specific topics, and undermine credibility in general. But they also inflict enormous damage on the public debate by creating multiple perceptions of reality. Liberals visiting conservative websites see works that are completely different from what authors have created and published. Where conservative authors provide rock solid video evidence, liberal readers see black screens and conclude that conservatives have made false claims and provided dead links with the expectation that readers would not check them.
The deleted video is part of Megyn Kelly’s last show on Fox News that aired on 2017-01-07. Pete Hoekstra appears 25 minutes into the show in a segment dedicated to the so-called Intelligence Community Assessment. Let me know, if Google deletes it, too.
Google deletes inconvenient evidence from other web properties it owns. See Website that archived Blasey Ford’s high school yearbook disappears from Google-owned Blogspot, published by the American Thinker few days ago.
2018-10-06 update: Google’s partner Twitter QFD-shadowbanned Adam Carter (@with_integrity), a prominent cyber-security researcher and skeptic of the “Russian hacking” conspiracy theory.
2018-10-10 update: Google messes with people and websites it doesn’t like in other ways, too. Russell Cook’s Gelbspan Files is an important climate realism resource. When Google search cannot hide it, it is displayed with a false warning “This site may be hacked” and a link to Google Help, telling the user not to visit it.
Interesting. The I.T. person who helps with tech issues told me there was nothing wrong a week or so ago, and the label disappeared. Now the mighty Google Corp claims otherwise again. Perhaps something I said, which doesn’t meet their overall approval? pic.twitter.com/A27F5E9MEm
