America's Child Marriage Problem (Videos)

America's Child Marriage Problem

America/USA prides itself in being the beacon of light when it comes to human rights and a strong component of protection of its youth and justice for all members of its society. Yet when one looks closely it can be seen that some of these tenants are not held as strongly as one would imagine.



Reading just a few articles on this topic, it appears that there some disparity when it comes to the topic of young people entering marriage. There is a bit of an imbalance when it comes to young people, particularly young women, who, while not old enough to drink, vote or join the military; they can be married as young as 12 years of age in most states across the nation. The law includes a clause, "with exception" which can be enforced in a number of ways.

Unfortunately, many of these marriages present serious problems for the young female, that, under other circumstances can be described as child abuse if the child is home living with their parents.

In A NYTimes article dated OCT. 13, 2015 and written by By FRAIDY REISS
NYTimes article: "America’s Child-Marriage Problem"

"Child marriage chart reveals girls can wed at 12 in some parts of the US - as lawmakers battle to raise age to 16"
'Several states - including Massachusetts - allow children to get married 'in exceptional circumstances'






From Independent from the UK an article posted on May 14, 2017,written by Andrew Buncombe entitled "New Jersey governor refuses to ban child marriage because 'it would conflict with religious customs"


Could there be a link between these young marriages, particularly those happening between young girls between the ages of 12 (sometimes 9 years old) and 16, and pedophilia?

Are we looking at a social justice system that penalizes a young person whose picture cannot appear in the papers due to being a juvenile, but who cannot get support or help from a justice system about various complaints of abuse, due to the fact that she may be underage and married to the offender?

When an underage victim of rape or incest has the right to plead their case in a court of law, how is it that an individual of the same age has no right to testify against her husband who may have violate her in a similar or maybe even more severe fashion?

How is it that a Children's hospital will address the medical needs of children up to the age of 24. Is not that establishment acknowledging that young people have medical, mental and emotional issues that relegate them to the status of children or underage.

This is a very interesting topic that contains many, many contradictions in its employment with folks on both sides of the aisle.


The Social Justice Experiment video shows the natural response that folks have to the concept of an older man marrying a young girl perhaps decades younger than he, and yet these laws are still on the books throughout the USA and still practiced in other countries around the world.  Why doesn't the reaction of these people get the laws to change?

The Children of this world are at risk on so many levels. We can only hope that people will come to the realization that this is true and do something about it!

What are your thoughts?
Leave your comments below.


Thank You.

Was the Steve Stephens Event Preparing Us For Something Bigger? (VIDEOS)

Greetings, Peace & Blessings to you, Your family and loved ones.
YouTube is doing its level best to shut me adsense revenues down to a bare minimum by demonetizing my videos one by one. I probably speak on controversial subjects a bit too much for their blood, but I will continue to move forward as I feel Divinely Guided to share my thoughts and views and research with the folks who subscribe to my channel and who visit my channel. I know that I am divinely guided by the Ancestors and Guardians and my Own Inner Light and Voice because of the impact that my little channel has.  I am not a victim. I am victorious and YouTube don't know who they messin' with! I'm just saying.



Now for the topic of this video. 
Was the Steve Stephens Event Preparing Us For Something Bigger?
There has been a lot of speculation about the Steve Stephens event. Supposedly his family came together to host an open funeral for him this past Saturday, just in case folks thought it was a hoax and he was really NOT dead. Any of you folks out there went to the funeral? How many of you went to the old man's funeral?

One of the things about False Flags is that they have tale-tail signs written all over them. Some of them are so incredulous it makes you wonder why anyone would believe them. Some of them repeat the same staging with:
Media reporting over the top:
Horrendous details but no real camera footage:
Murder weapons used change shape, size and details:
If there is video, obvious editing and or obscure rendering to cause even more speculation about how real is real.
Witnesses corroborate stories on one hand then contradict on the others:
Family members of victims are immediately interviewed to keep the narrative fresh in the minds of the public.
Family members of victims show little or no real emotion or grief:
Family members who wear glasses have been exposed for reading a script as it can be seen in the lens of their glasses or as in one case I observed, she actually had the paper in her hand and while looking down at it, exposed it.
Family members are quick to forgive, which I find quite interesting because if you take the time to read the comments under the stories surrounding these events, well, the commenters for the most part are calling for blood, string him up, put him under the jail, etc.
Reports interviewing victims and witnesses in front of a green screen.
Witnesses appear out of nowhere in some instances with a full account of what happened even before the Media/authorities have investigated it.
It's all over social media, and the MSM is using social media as their source of verifiable info. Catch them making up stuff and they quickly move on to another story, rarely retracting the blunder in their reporting.
Witness and even some family members of the victims become celebrities and/or start non-profits or lawsuits. Interesting.
FBI knew of the so called "terrorist" long before the act took place.
Family members and supporters show up within hours with pics, posters, etc. of the victim, some in pristine condition as if they were made by a professional who works on weekends and after hours.
And last but not least of course, the perpetrator gets to die, kill himself or in rare cases, gets to have a trial which in most cases is a closed trial, away from public scrutiny.
 So Dylann Storm Roof gets a trial while Steve Stephens gets to kill himself. But they both paid a visit to a fast food restaurant.

Dylann was taken to Burger King.. by his captors no less, and Steve, well he just road up to the McDonald's a 1.5hrs drive from Cleveland and ordered a 6 pack of chicken nuggets, no wait, that dude is too big for a six pack, change that to 20 pack nuggets folks, make it more believable.

And let me just add right here for those who really like to look deeper and deeper into these events "The Notion of Snuff Films" and the even more sinister notion of waging bets on them. You can check out Abel Danger's perspective on "Serco" and the "Snuff Films" angle. In a word, people don't have to "actually" die, but the films rake in enough revenue for the betters, so who cares?

So we move to the theme of Crisis Actors. Personally, I really think they need to get better actors, cause for sure, dude was horrid in his performance, absolutely horrid! I think his acting is what made this story unbelievable on so many levels more than anything else.

Under this video "WHAT ARE CRISIS ACTORS? WAS STEVE STEPHEN A CRISIS ACTOR?" posted by Wise Minds (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8nbPXb_ypM) Someone commented and I quote this comment..

"We assume 1000's of people lost their lives because we were told so. If there where no planes and it was all staged controlled demolition then the death toll was probably very low like incidentals they could not account for. Homeless persons as an example. There is good evidence that suggests those buildings where largely hollow that explains the lack of debris. It is also a common practice to remove everything out of buildings before implosion as the stuff in the building can cause the building to come down in a  undesirable fashion. Like internal non support walls.

If you follow these so called events where we never see the money shot they always turn the camera or give us the colored bars or the video is so grainy and terrible you can't make heads or tales of anything. Everything happens just out of sight of the camera. This makes the viewers mind fill in the blanks. Killing real people is a messy affair that could cause real world consequences. These assholes also believe in karma and I guess I have witnessed it myself. They fake it for a number of reasons but I think karma is the big reason it always comes back to bite you in the ass. Easier to fake it. When and if ever caught they can say it's not our fault you are an idiot that fell for a hoax."

My Response to this comment is this:
Wow, that's some interesting concepts on the controlled demolition theory. It needs to be investigated further.
Was there any large amounts of office junk moved out?
Did moving trucks come back and forth in the preceding days. Were businesses in the buildings moved out, I heard some relocated, but enough to minimize the obstruction to the demolition?
However, if no to these questions, or only a minimal displacement then we must look to another theory.

Dustification. Weapons that can turn anything to dust. Judy Wood discusses this and your one statement about removing stuff makes so much sense and truly gives her theory legs.

I think it's all of the above. They wanted to take building 7 down the same way, but for some reason the invisible plane did not hit that building.  But all were wired for demolition and building seven should not have come down at all. It was the newest and most fortified building which Mayor Juliani had a protective fortified bunker at the top. Why did that building disintegrate?
Not sure if they believe in Karma, that's another hoax they got folks to believe in. They feel protected as long as they do what the overlords tell them. They have been duped as well.

Now there is blow back, what goes around comes around, though. And so, even if they are pranking the people they will and are susceptible to being pranked.
These people live in fear of discovery which is why they spend so much time covering their tracks.

I am convinced this was staged, and in more than one shot. The video of the shooting was not live streamed but later edited. If he was on the run, when and where did he find the time to edit the video?

But all in all the masses are being played, but so are the players. There are even more sinister forces behind it all. The idea is to keep every one in their fear chakra so they are more easily manipulated.

In another comment under the same video:
"I wish we knew what really happened. I keep wondering what really went on in the streets of Cleveland when the Police told everyone to stay inside. It just feels like this is all preparation for something."

My Response to this comment is this:

People say it's martial law, but that is already here, it's been a long time since the police we called civil servants. These events give the cities, towns and states more reason to intensify law enforcement with militarized armored vehicles, munitions and gear. They no longer are trained to see people as someone to protect and serve, but as enemy combatants or civilians, these are military terms they been using for years. It's intensifying and becoming more common, but this country been under martial law since Lincoln was president.

The idea of government, is the idea of God. What I mean is Government=God to many people. They worship the Flag of their government and expect their government to protect them from threats foreign and domestic. With this in mind they control the perception of the masses of what the government is bequeathed by a higher authority to do in their rolls of governing over the people. It always comes back to this.

Governments rule by creating reasons to fear the lack of their protection, thereby they are legitimate in doing all the things they do that curtail and in some case rescind  human rights and privacy. Governments can do to you what others cannot do to you and make you pay for it by issuing a tax levy.

Governments create situations that make you cry out for more government control and power over your life. The ultimate goal of government is to totally disavow any sovereignty that the individual would or could have and give it all to them and then charge you for it. People happily go along with it because Government has created this illusion and has given you a document and/or thousands of unread ones, to prove how much power they have over you and your life.

“Humanity is hard wired to believe in other than self, outside of self, power not contained in self, so the scriptures (propaganda-sorry to say) indoctrinates folks to believe in a power outside of them. It made the Romans rich, it made the Catholic Church rich, and today, it makes the so-called powers that be rich elites who continue to dupe the masses.

Whatever character they need to use to demonize (Bin Laden) or glorify (celebrities) we have the same story going on, the story of good and evil, savior and saved, lost and found. So for real, it does not matter if Jesus is real or contrived... what matters is the power this Archetype has had in taking away the "PERSONAL POWER" of humanity, or anyone who believes in him. It enslaves humanity and ties a yoke of perceived and fabricated freedom predicated on what... SOMEBODY ELSE DID FOR YOU!

It props up governments worldwide, who take care of their citizens, instead of societies where citizens take care of themselves. It's the age old plan of keeping the slaves in check through the use of false hope in that which is outside, thus losing connection to the true divine self that lies within. It creates martyrs, pacifist, abusers and dictators. When humanity finally wakes up from its slumber, hypnosis and amnesia, there will be a whole lot of shaking going on that will reverberate throughout the entire Universe.”

The American Voter Is An Enabler, Part 3-Ruling Class (Videos)

People are going back and forth about this Comey situation. I did a reading on it a while back so if you check my video, "Why Did Comey Close the 2nd FBI Investigation? Ask A Psychic. You will see how all this and so much more is playing out. It's all political theater. Politicians are actors who never made it to Hollyweird.  


These are some interesting times.

It was stated by someone, and I quote...
"Too many people, who appear to be waking up still think that politics is the best way to life. From the first day that a human can absorb information, it is indoctrinated they have and need masters (teachers, police, priest & politicians). As soon as the awake people also wake up to the fact, that a ruling class is bad for society, things will start to change." Anonymous



It's the conundrum of human history. Particularly when you look at the notion of Empire. Modern day empire building manifests as the industrial revolution, but it really boils down to the concept of scarcity, fear of scarcity and then the need for a ruling class to protect everyone from scarcity. In their back rooms and dark halls, the ruling class had to figure out a way to remain the ruling "men behind the curtain" so they invented the notion of scarcity, on an abundant planet, and while they fill their coffers with more than they could ever use or need, and all the rest follows.

Humans, particularly the industrialized human, have the propensity to applaud their rulers no matter how they rule "Stockholm Syndrome" just as long as they promise to arrest their fears. They willingly give up their sovereignty to some external, much bigger, much more powerful force, to protect them and keep them from harm.

Meanwhile, cognitive dissonance is in full swing, as they look around at the failing economy, loss of jobs, horrendous war games, loss of life, health care, etc. which all equal loss of security, yet, the love relationship they have with leadership, i.e., the ruling class, is so pervasive it blinds them to the fact that they are no better off and that the ruling class are blood suckers who have no care for them. The voter will continue to vote against his/her interest for just a sliver of that promise pie, while the ruling class own the pie factory.

The deeper question is, why is humanity susceptible to being duped in this fashion, over and over again?

It appears that "Trump" was an even bigger Psyops than Obama. People actually believe there was a strong populous movement headed by a Billionaire? Even that makes no sense. But, because he was a cantankerous Billionaire, they thought he would be different?

Trump was a bigger Psyops than Obama because he had even the folks who were beginning to distrust the system altogether, get behind him. He pulled folks in from the left, right and center.

He has completely disappointed his base, yet they feverishly hold on to hope. As their hope disappears, it will create a tremendous mental dystopia and the masses who believed in him will join the ones "shouting" NOT MY PRESIDENT, and the populous movement will disintegrate like a morning fog.

Lack of faith in the government could lead to even more unrest and even more need for militarize police all over the country. Society will disintegrate into warring factions among themselves and the outcome will be as it always has been. The ruling class remain in power handing out slivers of pie to the fewer and fewer numbers of humans that are left after destroying them from the inside out.

It is written in the stars, Empires rise and fall over the millennia, however the Empire wheel keeps turning. Why do humans need empires is my question.

Why Is Humanity Susceptible to Building Empires?

The Dems may want to tar and feather Trump for firing Comey.  But they keep missing the elephant, the big huge elephant in the room. This is not about the dems vs the Reps, it's about pedos not wanting their crap to be uncovered. The in fighting is just a smoke screen. Do you realize that they fight each other in public and sleep with each other after dark?

Wake up people, there's no saving this corrupt system.
It needs to be dismantled.

Pedophiles are running for cover. What Comey found out will bring even Trump down and it ain't no Russian BS. How many times has the US interfered in elections, (Homeland Security interfered in US elections) overthrown governments, set up puppets who are allied with the US and NATO?
#Iraq #Haiti #Egypt #Honduras #Venezuela just to name a few.

Come on people!


Remember, Hillary sold 20% of US uranium reserves to Russia.  So what's the hype about Trump or anyone in  his inner circle relating to the Russians? Why are these people trying to suggest Russian involvement in US elections when their track record is glaringly obvious of their collusion and interference around the globe? It's the pot calling the kettle black!



We got, Hillary and Trump hobnobbing with the Saudis but so did Bush. The Saudi government, those guys, who just got Elected by the United Nations to Women’s Rights Commission DESPITE THAT COUNTRY’S APPALLING RECORD ON THE TREATMENT OF WOMEN. This shows you the "world" collusion and moral bankruptcy.

It ain't about parties, it's about world dominion, power and control for the psychopaths that run this world.

FYI, the Trump family is featured in the Jeffrey Epstein Blackbook, which indicates they knew a little bit about his lifestyle.

The Trump presidency is a psyops almost bigger than the Obama one was. In fact, Trump IS Obama's 3rd term. He's a puppet. He don't know nothing from nothing, which makes him even easier to be manipulated by the globalist. He has no resistance, he's a naive narcissistic, touch off. Don't even think that bringing him down will change anything. It won't!

Check it out, there's a huge elephant in the room people!

So folks think that Comey should have been fired since he did not suggest that Hillary be prosecuted for her crimes. SO, good-bye Comey, you didn't do your job.

But if you people think that Trump is going to hire someone who will prosecute her, you are sadly mistaken. She will not go to jail!

They haven't forgotten what Hillary said, "If I go down, I am taking everyone with me." and she wasn't playing. In order to get to the top, you have to swim in some slime, become slime and then throw slime. All of them are complicit in some way and all of them think they are above the law.

There is no honesty among thieves so they all got to watch their backs, can't keep their eyes closed to long and eliminate ALL threats. The United States government is a mafia, a criminal cabal, crooks thieves and robbers, and folks keep voting for them, thinking something will change, and it won't. History should tell us that much.

The other thing that I think is sorely missed is that, usually, the VP is the President's Handler. Think about it.. they tend to be more of a power broker from the sidelines. We hardly ever heard of Biden except here and there, Obama was the front man, same with Bush and Chaney. they got it all set up, and like Bush said "Oh, I'm not gonna lose." so whatever they got to do, they will do and have done it. It's just easier to see it now with the Internet, and if they have their way, they will figure out a way to silence it.

The whole "Alt-Right" and "fake news" meme was the beginning of a paradigm shift from allowing certain information to find its way to the web.

Censorship began, Twitter shut down accounts, Facebook, in addition to its already sending folks to Facebook jail; hired people to filter out so called "fake news", reddit shut down accounts or deactivated certain sub-reddits and now, under the guise of Advertiser pressure, YouTube/Google is doing its part to silence the masses.

I ain't even about free speech, you can't have it on someone else's platform. It's a privilege to be able to speak your mind on someone else's platform, but, it's discouraging enough to make people self censor or go somewhere else.

The idea is to silence dissent, wherever they find it; and to keep the secret, secret, and at all costs.

Our world is governed by Psychopathic Megalomaniacs who intend on staying in power no matter what.

So to conclude, American voter, as long as you enable your government it will continue to abuse you.

Crowdfunding, Patreon and YouTube Demonetization (Videos)

I want to talk a bit about the notion that YouTube is demonetizing videos on their platform.

When I started this project, a few days ago, what came to mind most was, why?
I really didn't have any idea how deep the rabbit hole would be. I searched the investors of Patreon and the Investors of Google (Al Gore?) and the investors of YouTube.

In actuality, YouTube was taken over by Google in 2006. I didn't join YouTube till 2009, but I had watched some of the videos. The platform was truly archaic compared to what we have now, and certainly the ads were not flying all over the place back then. 


I still believe that everyone in this venture YouTube, Google (Alphabet), PayPal and Patreon are in the same pocket when it comes to their investors. So it would stand to reason they have some complimentary goals as well as major support for and from one another.




Angel Investors are particularly interesting as they can have or gain full reign of your business because they are very, very wealthy and are investing their own cash and/or assets. Looking at the investors of these companies, Angels are all over the place.

This topic is too involved and much more than my talents can review with precision accuracy, but I think it's important to note that we are not simply dealing with YouTube, we are dealing with Google (Alphabet), PayPal, and Patreon that have a symbiotic relationship with each other and are not necessarily thinking of ways to make the little guy YouTube Creator smile. They are looking for huge returns on their investments! Period!  If advertisers are pulling out, that's a red flag and investors may jump ship!

YouTube Grew so fast, Google had to get a piece of the action and within  little over 2 years, Google bought YouTube! Since Google was and is the ad giant, NBC, was moved into the host of other advertisers and was no longer the main source of advertising for YouTube.

But now, Google/YouTube is in panic mode with advertisers pulling out left and right. They are afraid that the current climate around "fake news", hate speech, terrorism, etc. may be broadcasted via YouTube with their ads attached. They don't want it.

Here's a list of some of the biggest advertisers who have stopped their spending with Google and YouTube.

video

"Both ATandT and Verizon may have an ulterior motive to make YouTube look like an untrustworthy spot for marketers because both companies are trying to sell more digital ads in their own networks." http://www.foxbusiness.com/features/2017/03/22/googles-youtube-losing-major-advertisers-upset-with-videos.html

As a result, Google/YouTube has come down hard on all Creators and in some ways indiscriminately though they claim to be manually reviewing videos in addition to adjusting their algorithms.

YouTube is a big part of Google revenues but when you compare it to the other options Google has as a search engine, it's primary role, and with competition coming in from other Video sites, it's possible that Google may simply go on this bumpy ride for a while and settle with being somewhere not so close to the top when it comes to a video platform.

It is competing with 75 others and has had its hayday. Bringing in YouTube Red, and streaming TV programs may keep hope alive for YouTube but the regular content creators with smaller pockets will have to be a bit more creative or may get squeezed out altogether.

YouTube had, in the past a couple of options for YouTube Creators to get financial support for their videos. This was happening before they actually went all the way with monetizing videos.

They had "Fan Funding" Which they discontinued Feb. 28, 2017,
"allows users to make one-time donations to their favorite channels and content creators." https://grin.co/overview-youtube-fan-funding/


They went on to offer "SuperChat," which works particularly well for live streamers. "here a fan can pay for their comment to be at the top of the list of comments and the Streamer would reap the rewards." Not too sure how well that will work out over the long haul.

They also had YouTube Contributor option, where you basically paid for ads to "not" show up on your vids but where "customers choose to pay web publishers for their content through Google-Ad network rather than deprive the Publishers of income from advertisements."

In all actuality, they have the absolute right to do demonetize videos, whenever they choose since they are providing the platform and providing it for free. With 400 vides/minute it has to be a daunting task to catch them all.  So, like back in the day, if one person in class acts up, everybody in the class gets punished.

Yep, we are complaining and we actually think it has something to do with free speech but not really. People tend to paint the "Free Speech" brush a bit far.

With YouTube needing to be bailed out due to Copyright issues, even the "Fair Use Claims" are negligible. Channels are still getting hit hard!

It's sorta like this, in my house I ask folks I invite into my house to remove their shoes, if they refuse, well, since it's my house I have the choice of allowing them in or blocking them from coming in. After all it's my house.

Same thing with YouTube.

On the other hand, say, you got a partner who gives you all the loving you want.. if you know what I mean, then all of a sudden and without warning, the loving dries up. You have had this symbiotic relationship with this person, it was understood that they would deliver, and now, they are reneging. But the bottom line is this, they can!  And that's the deal with this YouTube demonetizing vids and shutting down channels left and right.

They Can! Why? Because it's theirs.

Now we got several options, and personally I think YouTube is gonna regret bending under the pressure of their advertisers. In fact, I think even the advertisers are gonna feel the pinch because even though there is enough junk out there to keep people distracted, there are really a lot of folks who want to learn something new, about other stuff than junk. Some people really want to get a wrinkle in their brain.  Not to mention the many creative content makers who make brilliant videos with outstanding content!  And, since the way YouTube goes about determining what is or is not ad friendly, is so vague and broad, you make a video and ain't no telling whether or not it's gonna pass the acid test.

But we as creators really do have options. And maybe our co-dependent relationship on YouTube needs to change or even stop in some cases although, if you are streaming videos from your YouTube channel to other platforms, well, you're still keeping the lines of communications open, sorta like the whole, "let's be friends" after a break-up when it really means, just in case it don't work out that maybe we could jump back into the mix again, if you follow me.

Several things are happening with this change.

First, it is censorship. We can dance around it or say it isn't so "Joe" but it is.
And the genius of it all, is that it will not be blatant in your face censorship, like shutting down channels or grabbing vids of channels, not that they stopped doing that either, but, they have done the insidious, tightening of the purse string censorship.

Like in a relationship.. the one who has the money can open and close that "pocketbook" if you follow my drift.  So, instead of coming straight at you, they take the passive aggressive way of scaring the shit out of you, cause you never know.  It's 3 days later and a hundred hours of editing later, and you get the knock at the door..

"You have been issued a warrant, we will be arresting your revenues, your video sucks, well not exactly, we suck, well not exactly, our advertisers suck, well maybe not, but anyways, we will fall the way of MySpace if we don't tow the line. So, we can't put ads on your videos. Listen, you ain't the only one who suffers from purse-string madness. So grow up and get over it and next time, be careful, is all."


Now, folks can go through the changes of starting their own YouTube Platform. yeah, fat chance on that one.  Remember, YouTube was out there, with it's initial creators, Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim, when they worked for PayPal.  Regular folks coming up with a brilliant idea in February 14, 2005. And then Google started sniffing around. Next thing you know, Google gave them an offer they couldn't refuse, $1.65 Billion dollars in stock.  By November 13, 2006, good ole YouTube is owned by Google and we all know what that means.

But we had hope.. we really did.
And we had smooth sailing for a little while.... then it started, politics, economics, politics, economics and politics and economics some more.

I remember when you could work with YouTube in a partnership capacity where you could get "special" annuities if you ran your own ads on your videos or ran ads on other peoples vids etc.  Great Idea, till the corporations stepped in.

Oh Lord, talk about big brother.. well not quite so big but scary big enough anyways.

Then eventually, the ads were like the ones you see on TV. And they spend a lot of money making them ads, let me tell you.
Then came Patreon. In May, 2013 Jack Conte, a popular YouTube artist, founded Patreon.

"Harkening back to old-school patronage, Patreon enables fans and sponsors to support artists and creators. Patrons pledge to support artists and creators on a reoccurring basis for each work created, empowering a new generation of creators the ability to make a living off of their passions." https://angel.co/patreon

Now Patreon is cool to a point, but you have to put in a lot of work to make it happen, and if you don't have at least 10 thousand subs on YouTube, forget it.  Besides, Patreon streams from YouTube so if at any time YouTube decides to pull your video or copyright strike it, what can  you do, you cannot upload to Patreon any vids.

Now when it first came out, in 2013, it was kind of clandestine about getting in the mix. In my mind, all I could think of is why would YouTube allow a Platform to gain more notoriety if it meant it would be taking its viewers away from its site.  You follow me? Why would YouTube, bring a tall dark and handsome dude to a date when they look like a nerd and expect you to be still attracted to them, I'm just saying.
So I began to wonder if in fact YouTube and Patreon had made some back room deal. Something along the line of, well as long as you don't allow up loads.  But is YouTube and Patreon really that separate from one another.

Think about it, folks actually think they are waking up. Folks are making more and more visits to channels that address some serious issues because they wanna wake up, or at least take shorter naps.

YouTube was gonna start losing viewers anyways. Some people have ad block because quite frankly, they are waking up and don't want to be disturbed by the tripe that some of those ads have.

So, what if YouTube was thinking ahead, or let's say Google was thinking ahead and since they are in the AD world, they know how it works..  Why not have a what appears to be "not ad friendly" platform and make people pay for it. You see?

Patreon is "not ad friendly". 

Patreon is into tithing so to speak cause folks gotta pay outa pocket not to mention, they have to sign up in order to do so. Which to me are two strikes against it. Pay outa pocket once a month or whatever and you have to sign up in order to do so. Huh???

Other solutions can be going to other platforms where you can upload your videos and get revenues that way. there ain't too much competition out there, just yet, but if this keeps up, other platforms will be developed. People will come along to grab the spoils of the YouTube collateral damage and create other platforms that you can upload their videos to.

One interesting thing about YouTube is that all things are in house. You cannot get the email address of your subs directly. So, you have to get your subs to give you their email address so you can let them know when you switch. You can try TubeBuddy and pay for a subscription which offers many tools for YouTube Creators.

Or you can make a video, upload it to YouTube and tell everyone to come where you are now.

Or you can find some other ingenious way, cause YouTube, if it sees folks leaving in droves might snatch your vid down for some unknown reason especially if you have millions of subs.

You can also, just find a more creative way to get your point across.  You know, use some of your passive aggressive skills to work around YouTube warriors.

Watch your title, watch your key words, watch your description. Put love, pancakes, strawberries, apple pie and icecream in the description and key words. Avoid anything that will piss them off. in other words "Self Censor" sorta.

Or we can call a YouTube boycott, for one week, no creators create anything, at all! Nothing.  Since the advertisers want to boycott YouTube, well, the creators can too. 

Ha, that would be awesome, we could "make" YouTube do it our way and fight back by giving them the finger.  LOL, that would never happen, we can't even get folks to boycott Walmart, but I always say, boycotts are winners in any power struggle.

Bottomline, we YouTube creators or shall I say, we video creators have to be more creative in finding ways to get our videos out there and get them funded.  But first we must read the terms of service before we sign on the dotted line. And who on God's green earth is gonna read all that stuff or even understand it, you practically have to hire a lawyer to translate!

Meanwhile the begging campaigns go on and on.

If we sell stuff on our videos, that's even more work.  And a small channel like mine with just a little over 3000 subs, well we don't even make that much off the adsense anyways.
Unless of course we make videos that are, you know..... non threatening to the advertisers.

We would have to make a whole paradigm shift in our creating to get that pocketbook to open up again.  And if we have any integrity.. well we will eventually become more and more disenchanted, hostile and resentful, and after a while, give it up or find something else to do.

All in all, this thing that YouTube is doing will eventually shift YouTube into the twilight zone, not that it ain't already there, and it will see its viewership decrease, its revenues' from ads decrease and other competitors grab up the spoils.

Next thing you know, YouTube will go the way of MySpace.  But of course, these corporate moguls always have contingency plans.  They are gonna push YouTube Red, News outlets and TV shows will start airing their programs on YouTube and the very thing that they were up in arms about and not wanting to advertise will be in their faces.  But maybe not so much, because we all know that mainstream media is scripted. So, it will be safer for YouTube in the long run and maybe even more financially lucrative.

Not sure how that would work though, unless YouTube/Google is asking for a cut of the ad revenues from the News Outlets and TV Shows, cause I doubt if advertisers are gonna pay twice for the same display, but who knows.

The fact is they are already advertising on TV programs, and news channels anyways around similar topics, but I think, since they want a piece of the action, their real plan is to squeeze the little guy out of the way so they can get the big dudes in there that will gain them even more revenues.


In a minute, YouTube will replace television and to me, that is the final goal.  They see that more and more people are going to YouTube for information and entertainment.  They see that more and more folks are streaming YouTube thru their TV's so why not go all the way?  Haven't you seen that free trial flash across your device?

There was a time when you had to record from the TV and then upload it to YouTube, eventually, it won't be necessary.

So Google backed YouTube is playing the passive aggressive role of resistance until we comply.  If not, then they will go for the tall dark and handsome dude who has a much bigger pocketbook than the average YouTube creator has.

And so that ends my two cents on the matter.

I wonder if YouTube will monetize this video, since I figured out their game plan. We shall see..
