Trump enforces Obama order for UC Berkeley to remove 13,800 hours of free educational videos from YouTube

This is the YouTube channel for University of California, Berkeley: https://www.youtube.com/user/UCBerkeley/videos

It has (or used to have) 13,800 hours of free educational content.

On August 30, 2016, the Justice Department sent this letter to the school, which criticized the videos for not being closed captioned, and for not having audio descriptions of content that was visible on chalkboards.

The school responded by issuing a statement which said it might have to remove the videos because of this. Specifically, the school’s statement said:

“… we might not be able to continue to provide free public content under the conditions laid out by the Department of Justice to the extent we have in the past.”

“In many cases the requirements proposed by the department would require the university to implement extremely expensive measures to continue to make these resources available to the public for free…”

The same letter from the Justice Department also ordered the school to pay “compensatory damages” to deaf people because these free educational videos were not closed captioned.

However, the Justice Department did not explain how it was possible for the school to pay “compensatory damages” for something that the school had given away for free.

So now, here we are in March 2017. Donald Trump has been president for well over a month. And now the Justice Department is enforcing Obama’s order for UC Berkeley to remove the videos.

As President, Trump could have reversed this order, just as Obama, early in his presidency, had reversed a Bush action regarding the New Black Panther Party. (In May 2009, the Obama administration dismissed charges that had been filed by the Bush administration against members of the New Black Panther Party who had been videotaped intimidating voters and brandishing a police-style baton at a Philadelphia polling station during the November 2008 election. In August 2009, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights demanded that the Justice Department explain why it dismissed the charges.  In July 2010, J. Christian Adams, a former lawyer for the Justice Department, testified before the Commission on Civil Rights that the case was dropped because the Justice Department did not want to protect the civil rights of white people.)

But Trump did not reverse this order. Instead, he went along with it.

So once again, here’s another reason why I’m glad I voted for Gary Johnson in the 2016 Presidential election.

YouTube has erased all of David Seaman’s videos

David Seaman is a journalist who was fired from Huffington Post in August 2016 after he truthfully wrote that Hillary Clinton had serious medical issues. By writing about Clinton’s ill health when he did, Seaman managed to beat each and every mainstream media outlet on this true story.

Very recently, YouTube took down Seaman’s videos. This is not the first time that YouTube has done that. His channel is at https://www.youtube.com/user/davidseamanonline/videos

Also, in the past, Seaman’s PalPal account was locked, rendering Seaman unable to access his own money.

Seaman has recently made a huge number of YouTube videos about “Pizzagate.” I don’t know if “Pizzagate” is real or not. But the fact that people with a lot of power are using their power to harass Seaman, instead of suing him for defamation, makes me think that there is probably truth to Seaman’s claims. If “Pizzagate” is real, the last thing its criminal participants would want is a legal court trial involving actual evidence.

Also, I just found out that earlier this year, one of Seaman’s friends was murdered.

Seaman recently made this video. Please note that this is not Seaman’s YouTube channel, which, as I said, has had all of its videos removed by YouTube:

YouTube disables Milo Yiannopoulos livestream hours before immigration speech in New Mexico

YouTube has the ability to broadcast events live as they happen, but YouTube decided that it would not allow it in this particular case. Only after Milo Yiannopoulos finished his speech did YouTube allow him to put it up on his channel. So here it is:

YouTube Disables MILO Livestream Hours Before Immigration Speech in New Mexico

January 27, 2017

YouTube disabled Breitbart News Senior Editor MILO’s livestreaming ability on Friday, just hours before his speech on immigration at the University of New Mexico.

MILO’s ability to host livestreams was withdrawn from YouTube after his video “MILO At UC – Colorado Springs: Democrats Are The ‘Party Of The Cuckold,’” was flagged and subsequently removed.

“Your video ‘MILO At UC – Colorado Springs: Democrats Are The ‘Party Of The Cuckold’ was flagged for review. Upon review, we’ve determined that it violates our guidelines,” YouTube declared in a notice to MILO. “We’ve removed it from YouTube and assigned a Community Guidelines strike, or temporary penalty, to your account.”

Though MILO has appealed the channel restrictions, YouTube has yet to remove the livestream ban.

Consequently, MILO’s speech at the University of New Mexico tonight will not be livestreamed. The speech will be posted in its entirely to MILO’s YouTube channel after the event as usual, but fans will not be able to watch it live.

YouTube censors video on … left-wing censorship

This is the video in question from PragerU that YouTube censored for its consrvative viewpoint. The only reason YouTube put it back up was because the Wall St. Journal complained about the censorship. The video is G-rated – it has no profanity, violence, or sex:

YouTube Censors Video on … Left-Wing Censorship

November 1, 2016

What do you suppose happens on YouTube to a video that is a “discourse on the First Amendment and the tactics that progressives are using to limit speech and political engagement by conservatives”? Well, according to the Wall Street Journal, it falls victim to an algorithm with absolutely no sense of irony.

A video titled “The Dark Art of Political Intimidation” was posted last week by WSJ columnist Kimberly Strassel as a PragerU lecture. “Within several hours of PragerU posting the video,” said a WSJ editorial, YouTube placed it in ‘restricted mode,’ making it inaccessible to schools, libraries and young Americans whose parents have enabled YouTube technology filters.”

Conservative radio host Dennis Prager’s idea for PragerU is to give students alternative, non-progressive takes on history, civics and other issues. Of the 100+ PragerU videos, YouTube restricted 18 of them, even though there’s no cursing, no violence or any kind of indecency in any of them.

What the videos have done is run afoul of progressive orthodoxy. YouTube told WSJ that “video restrictions are decided by an ‘algorithm’ that factors in ‘community flagging’ and ‘sensitive content.’” In other words, the algorithm was tripped by progressives trying to limit speech and political engagement by conservatives. Flag a video enough times and the restrictions kick in. Do it often enough and YouTube is your safe space. Extra points for flagging videos that accuse the left of doing exactly what you’re doing.

Unless the WSJ gives YouTube a headache about the system, which it did in the case of Strassel’s video. YouTube lifted the restriction over the weekend.

nerdgirl20 talks about her movies on DVD: part 1

nerdgirl20 is a Canadian film student who owns about 500 or 600 movies on DVD, and plans to talk about all of them.

She’s says there will be about 12 videos in this series, and she asks viewers to point out the movies that they themselves own.

In this first batch, the only one that I own is Witness. I’m sure I’ll have a lot more when she gets to science fiction and fantasy.

Ivy League “Black Lives Matter” protesters harass students in the library

Check out this video of “Black Lives Matter” protesters at Dartmouth College, harassing students who are trying to study in the school’s library. And keep in mind that this in an Ivy League school – a supposed pinnacle of academia, intellectualism, and maturity:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJAuVQlLxD0

Victor Davis Hanson recently raised an excellent point when he wrote:

One common denominator characterizes almost all unrest on college campuses: the demands to create more “-studies” courses (black, Latino, feminist, gay, etc.) and thus to hire more -studies professors.

So far there are few demands to make the physics department more diverse or to hire more engineering professors.

Here’s my take on this:

1) The black students who major in STEM subjects are too busy studying in the library, and don’t have the time, or the desire, to harass the other students who are studying in the library.

2) The students of all races who harass the students who are studying in the library, are themselves too lazy and incompetent to major in STEM subjects.

Good Mythical Morning! May I have the pleasure of introducing you to my favorite YouTube channel?

These two guys have been best friends since first grade. They both have engineering degrees, but both quit that field to work full time on their videos. They grew up in North Carolina, but recently moved to Los Angeles. Every weekday at 6 A.M. they put up a new 12 minute video – and they have hundreds of them going back a few years.

Here’s a video of a cow eating a live bird

I’m a vegetarian. I view it as a personal choice, and I never tell anyone else what to eat or not eat.

When I see a live bird, I don’t think of it as being food. A dog or a cat does see it as food, which is why they they chase them, kill them, and eat them.

But cows – I always thought cows were vegetarians. And I still think they are. But I guess the label isn’t always 100% accurate.
