Fire Susan Wojcicki as YouTube CEO

Since February 2014, Susan Wojcicki became Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of YouTube, which is part of Google. Under her leadership things started to went downhill and caused the reputation of YouTube and Google from the copyright controversy to the 2016 controversial YouTube PR Nightmare known as The Ad-Friendly Monetization Policy which was severely criticized by various YouTubers that the new rules censors and silenced YouTubers' freedom of speech and their platforms by demonetizing YouTube videos that deals with controversial subjects (like tragedies, natural disasters, politics, health, and etc.) and YouTubers loved Freedom Of Speech, but the new Ad-Friendly Monetization rules are still a dire form of Censorship by TPTB at Google and YouTube. The current Ad-Friendly Monetization Policy is still unfair to YouTubers. We also want that policy abolished or changed for the better. The controversial Ad-Friendly Policy at YouTube is one of the few reasons YouTube went downhill and turn for the worse and into the wrong direction. The PR Nightmare has to be fixed, make YouTube and Google go into the right direction by having common sense rules like No Tolerance Policy on YouTube Trolls, False Flagging, and censoring music just like Internet Vigilantes like UMG_MK trying to do a witch hunt on removing YouTube videos of songs by The Beatles. We want YouTube and Google go into the right direction and fire YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki and Make YouTube Great Again!

Tell the HuffPost to Restore My Censored Article

As a longtime contributor to the Huffington Post I posted an article about Russia-gate to the site on November 4. Within 24 hours it was retracted. I have never heard from Huffington Post editors about this decision. As a reporter for mainstream media for more than two decades, including almost seven years at the Wall Street Journal, six years at the Boston Globe and ten years for the Sunday Times of London, I know that a newsroom rule is that before an article is retracted the writer is contacted to be allowed to defend her or his work. This never happened. There was no due process. An email I wrote to a HuffPost editor asking why it was retracted was ignored.  I can now only conclude that the decision was not for editorial, but for political reasons.  Like the word fascism, censorship is over-used and mis-used, and I avoid using it. But I can come to no other conclusion than that this is an act of political censorship. I am non-partisan as I oppose both major parties. I am a reporter who follows the facts where they lead. And they lead to an understanding that the Jan. 6 intelligence “assessment” on alleged Russian interference in the election was based on opposition research, not serious intelligence work. I captured a pdf of the censored article here: http://raymcgovern.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/CLEANOn-The-Origins-of-Russia-gate-_-HuffPost.pdf I've received a lot of support since the censorship became known. Ron Paul interviewed me about it on his TV show, The Liberty Report.  Journalists Tariq Ali, Max Blumenthal, Margaret Kimberley, Sam Husseini and Pepe Escobar have shared it on social media. Pepe said I "killed" the story. Peter Lavelle, host of CrossTalk, asked me about it on the show. ZeroHedge wrote a widely-read piece about it, Mike Whitney referenced it on CounterPunch, and former CIA-analyst Ray McGovern kicked it all off by first exposing the censorship on his blog. Someone actually took the time, 27 minutes and 13 seconds to be exact, to read the entire article on YouTube. Here is my interview with Ron Paul https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csuVcei02d4 And with Peter Lavelle (other guests are Tim Black and Steve Malzberg) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IV3T3RSC-gk&feature=youtu.be Anyone of course is free to disagree with my interpretation and analysis of the facts, but not with the facts themselves. Disagreement with a point of view is not grounds for retraction. It is the very essence of censorship. Lydia Polgreen, editor-in-chief of the HuffPost, can be reached at lydia@huffpost.com Ask her to either explain why the article was retracted or to restore it to the HuffPost.  My email address is joelauria@gmail.com

Petition to Donald Trump

Stop Facebook from ShadowBanning Opposing Opinions

Facebook is covertly flagging and effectively censoring people who actively oppose mainstream media's viewpoint on various social topics. They are doing this to manipulate the world's perception of these topics by limiting people's exposure to alternate opinions. This is a very powerful and dangerous ability that can easily sway public opinion one way or another to accomplish their agenda and control the people. We cannot allow them to continue doing this or they will use manipulation of what is seen on Facebook to alter the perception ("reality") of millions of people. This dangerous abuse of power by a social media giant gives them the ability to spawn massive mobs of people almost overnight, or completely extinguish the voice of millions... All without Facebook staff posting a single word or anyone even realizing that it's happening. We have coined the term ShadowBanning to represent the covert censorship of millions of people. Examples of ShadowBanning includes, but is not limited to: * severely delaying the display of posts or comments that are flagged as opposition to their agenda so that all initial exposure on a post is only that of what they support; * disappearing comments and likes; * banning, suspending, or limiting people's ability to use their Facebook account, for no reason or for questionable reasons, and with no opportunity to challenge the decision; filtering posts out of your news feed so you see everything your friends and pages post except for specific social topics that you are known to oppose and which conflicts with Facebook executive opinions. The list goes on and on. We currently have 31,000+ members in our ShadowBanning group and growing by thousands every couple days as more and more people begin to realize what is happening to them and we all have irrefutable proof. It has been extremely difficult to get the word out, as Facebook has begun flagging actual accounts instead of just key statements in posts, and so effectively that account is invisible to majority of people unless they are direct friends. If we don't stop this it will most definitely have a terribly negative effect on the United States and even the world. This is communist type censorship, plain and simple. We need your help before it's too late. Facebook may be censoring your opinion without your knowledge. Get the facts and investigate it with your own posts and comments and you'll see without a doubt that this is very real. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1836989403277764/
