Censored Again!

Well, we just received a YouTube “strike” for allegedly spreading “medical disinformation.” This means we are unable to post anything for a week to our channel and raises the prospect of losing the entire channel permanently.

My crime?

“Medical misinformation.”

And this was on top of a warning and the automatic removal last week of my interview with Dr. Pierre Kory also on Informed Consent (our LiveCast offering).


So, the heat is back on. We’re being actively targeted for removal due to my insistence on saying relatively tame things about vaccines and Covid. Things that often do go against “expert consensus.”

That often translates into “saying things about 1-8 months before the experts finally figure out the very same things.”

My first strike, received in December 2021, was because I posted a video that covered the exceptional number of women who were reporting menstrual irregularities after vaccination.

Now, that’s an accepted fact many months after I was censored for saying the exact same thing using data and logic to say “Hey, there’s a signal here.”

Given that Youtube is trying to pretend it is a “woke” corporation and is also therefore pretending it cares about women, it’s a real mystery as to how they can stifle such an important women’s issue as interfering with reproductive health and fertility and still pretend to the self-image that they care about women.

My Reaction

Obviously, I take it very seriously when someone tried to stifle free speech or legitimate scientific inquiry. The very policy of YouTube is conflict with itself by stating they “don’t allow claims about COVID-19 vaccinations that contradict expert consensus…”

That’s not how science works. Not now, not ever. Science doesn’t work by consensus until a huge amount of time and supporting data have managed to accrue. And even then, the consensus needs to be open to the idea of new data. All it takes for a thousand-year-old theory to die a sudden death is for a single data point to come along and make it invalid.

For example, the speed of light is a known quantity. But if our solar system wandered through a region of space that caused that to change, then we’d have to review the entire concept and everything related to the speed of light and everything we thought we knew about space, time and matter.

That’s how science is supposed to work.

For YouTube to pretend that there’s anything like a legitimate scientific consensus around a brand-new vaccine platform, using a known toxic spike protein, with a huge rash of as-yet-unexplored side-effects, and which has not yet been fully tested on animals or for a very long time period, is frankly as dangerously arrogant as it is ignorant.

Scientific consensus is simply not the case. Stifling legitimate questions or concerns (or even opinions) is holding us all back and, in my view, harming people, children and babies.

But it goes further than little old me. Yesterday, Jack Spirko’s YouTube channel (Survival Podcast) got a strike as did Masako Ganaha, a Japanese investigative reporter currently covering the farmer rebellion in The Netherlands. And those are just the one’s I’ve randomly heard about.

The pattern seems to be targeting people who dare to question authority. A pogrom enacted by the cheerless woke mobs who increasingly resemble corporate authoritarians and who openly copy the tactics of various communist regimes.

No Public Videos This Week

Because I cannot determine why there’s been a renewed push towards censorship, and I don’t yet know who our enemies are, or their aims, I am going to only post my usual content behind our paywall.

This keeps us free from prying eyes, Google crawlers, and allows us to moderate the discussion to assure civility and free expression.

I will have my usual copious amount of material this week but all of it will be reserved for paying members until I figure out where the new battle lines have been drawn, and why.

Thank You to My Subscribers

I’d like to give a huge THANK YOU to all of my paying subscribers! It is 100% due to your support that I am even able to do what I do in the first place.

Second of all, your support gives me the freedom to be bold and push back against the corrupt systems of power. Many don’t have that luxury. If they lose their YouTube channel, they lose everything. That’s not my case at all. It would suck and annoy me a lot, but Peak Prosperity would survive and carry on.

If you are not yet already a subscriber, but have been considering it, and think that now would be a good time to support this cause, then please do so by CLICKING THIS LINK.

What’s at Stake?

Look, let me not mince words: we live in exceptionally dangerous times. Everything hinges on how things go from here. A huge battle is underway between the forces of freedom/popularism and conformity/authoritarianism.

Those who would wish us all to conform to their ideology and submit to the chaos of authoritarianism are severely ignorant and/or misguided. They seem to be completely unaware of where prosperity comes from and just how easy it is to destroy it.

They don’t grasp history or humans very well. Their view of “diversity” is everyone thinking or at least saying the same things. They demand obedience to their ever-shifting catechism of incoherent requests.

On the one hand, they might insist that you are either pro vaccine or an antivaxxer. It’s black or white, pick a side! Without breaking a sweat or into a grin, they will then explain to you in crushing detail about the latest randomly chosen and assigned number of genders and pronouns because nuance matters!

Well, it either does or it doesn’t. But you can‘t convince me that you can both have a moral stance based on no nuance for one complex subject, but finely graded nuance on a different one. It’s literally the modern version of “selective scriptures” practiced by some highly insincere religious fanatics.

So, what’s at stake here? Everything. The globalists have somehow convinced a lot of menticided people to do their work for them. I don’t believe they are bad people, but are merely playing a game they don’t fully grasp.

The end result of losing out to Team Woke – consisting of various politicians, corporations, and misguided people – will be a very boring future of increasing oversight, loss of freedom, thought police and, eventually, mass atrocities.

That last part won’t be boring. Far from it.

The Data

Because “the experts” are constantly changing their minds about Covid and the vaccines, we’re not even sure what “consensus” we were violating.

Honestly, it might just as easily have been the clip of Fauci we ran as anything else. All we covered in this episode was official ONS (UK) vaccine data and a Fauci clip.

Here’s the core “exchange” where I played a clip of Fauci and the Evie and I reacted to it:

Dr. Fauci [00:48:23] “One of the things that’s clear from the data that even though vaccines, because of the high degree of transmissibility of this virus, don’t protect overly well, as it were, against infection, they protect quite well against severe disease leading to hospitalization and death. And I believe that’s the reason, Neil, why at my age, being vaccinated and boosted, even though it didn’t protect me against infection, I feel confident that it made a major role in protecting me from progressing to severe disease. And that’s very likely why I had a relatively mild course so much.”

Dr. Chris Martenson [00:49:04] All right. There’s a lot to unpack in that one. First off, they’re not overly effective at stopping transmission.

Dr. Chris Martenson [00:49:16] Fauci, Welcome to my side of the table. You’re a year and a half late, but it’s good to have you over here. Now we can have a science discussion, which, by the way, that in science where you go, I’m reasonably certain that my vaccines protected me from having a blah, blah, blah. Oh, you are? Well, I was completely unvaccinated. And I got Omicron. Nothing bad happened to me. I got over it. I’m reasonably certain that my unvaccinated status is exactly why I didn’t have a serious run of this or follow along. Or it could just be that very few people have a serious run with Omicron.

Okay. Nothing too contentious there except maybe to challenge Fauci’s completely unscientific anecdotal claim that he recovered quickly because of his vaccination status by counterclaiming that my own quick and non-serious run-in with Covid was due to the fact that Omicron just isn’t a cause of serious disease in the vast, huge, large majority of people.

Or, maybe it was this part where I countered Fauci’s claim that vaccines “protect quite well against severe disease leading to hospitalization.”

Dr. Chris Martenson [00:50:46] All right. I don’t need to hear that last part [of the video clip]. They do protect against severe disease and death. He says very declaratively now. It’s not my job. I’m not paid $453,000 a year to be familiar with this data like he is. I haven’t spent 50 years of my life pretending I’m good at this stuff. I’ve only spent the last two years pretending. So, let’s go to the data real quick, shall we?

So, this just came out. It comes from UK and they’ve done a couple of things here. Mortality rates by vaccine status for all cause deaths. And this is age standardized mortality rate per 100,000 person years.

So, we’ve normalized this for population and age. So, we can’t say, well, more people were unvaccinated or more people were vaccinated. We can’t say it was more older people. All that stuff has been stripped out. And I’m not saying they did. That’s right. They might have totally screwed this data up, too, but this is the data we have and it comes from the own study in the UK. So, this is official as it gets…

What was that data from the UK Office of National Statistics (ONS)? This:


This data clearly shows that having one or two shots more than doubles and nearly triples your chance of dying of something. Exactly what? We can’t tell from this data.

After having crossed that valley of death, you finally land in the three shot zone which somehow gets you back to approximately the same baseline level of death as being unvaccinated.

How can we make sense of this? We cannot. Maybe the data is bad or has been assembled incorrectly. Or, just as likely, it’s telling us something that needs to be sorted out regarding the overall benefit of the vaccines.

Either way, one thing we can say for sure is that there is no scientific or data-based basis here for expert consensus.


Yet YouTube aspires to be the arbiters of where that line of scientific consensus exists.

To the extent that the above ONS data is accurate is the extent to which YouTube employees are  interfering with informed consent and the extent to which they are contributing to mass death.

I believe they need to be held accountable. It is unacceptable for a company that earns billions of profits yearly to not spend a small portion of those profits and not being this colossally wrong.

When The Time Comes

I hereby announce that when the time comes, I volunteer to be an expert witness for any investigative body or panel seeking to understand what went wrong and what sorts of punishments that specific and individual YouTube employees should face for their role in harming people.

I am not interested in YouTube the corporation paying a fine, but wish to see the specific people responsible held up, charged and facing severe consequences for their negligent (at best) or immoral actions.

This is the only way that change ever occurs. There have to be consequences.

History is 100% crystal clear on the matter; humans respond to incentives.

“You show me the incentive and I’ll show you the outcome.” ~ Charlie Munger

The less positive version of Munger’s quote is “that power corrupts, but absolutely power corrupts absolutely.”

These social media companies are on a power trip. They want to be the complete arbiters of right from wrong, to shape every bit of the future, and to marginalize and stifle with whom they disagree, even if that means killing a few innocents along the way.

That sort of corruption requires very public displays of consequences to assure other people get the message.

If YouTube wants to be proactive and to help advance the actual truth and science, they would fund debates and allow a vigorous scrum of ideas to form. But they obviously have no interest in that sort of truth breaking out, and it’s far from coincidental their “line of consensus” just magically happens to coincide with happy pharmaceutical company profit and loss statements.

If you wish to find child porn on YouTube, it’s there. If you wish to find endless videos based on shoddy or non-existent science (on 5G, flat earth, chemtrails, etc.), you can do that too.

In other words, YouTube doesn’t operate from any particular ethical position, it operates from a corporate group-think position that has no real mooring in anything other than money.

We’re looking forward to a brighter future without these charlatans.
