Vinny Eastwood Is GONE From Youtube!
Just to give you a brief idea of who I am and what I've done and just what has been lost,
Since 2008 I have gained 60,000+ subscribers and had over 17 million views on YouTube alone.
Made over 6000 videos with nearly 20,000 hours of content.
It takes approximately 10,000 hours of research to be able to qualify as a "Doctor" of any particular subject,
I Interviewed approximately 2000 of the biggest names from hundreds of fields of research and expertise from around the world whom had all done their 10,000 hours, interviewing them for 2 hours, uninterrupted.
Learning from such a diverse array of learned, wise and experienced people brought a lot of knowledge, joy and inspiration to millions on YouTube.
All that content, is gone.
All that knowledge, is now mine, and mine alone.
So what now?
We are still broadcasting 3 days a week on www.twitch.tv/vinnyeastwood archiving the shows on https://odysee.com/@VinnyEastwood:0 and The Vinny Eastwood Show archives (THANK YOU Giulia!) https://www.thevinnyeastwoodshow.com/show-archives
I did see it coming, publicly stating that my aim was to rock it till the wheels came off, now they've come off, and before they even did, I'd already backed up a significant amount of my content on Odysee and had already transitioned my daily shows to Twitch.
Some say "Oh you can build your audience again" and while true, I suppose if it took me 13 years to get 60,000 subscribers with what I know now I could get them again in half the time, by spending the next 6 or so years uploading from my hard drives every old show I've ever done one by one.
I saw a movie called "No Country For Old Men" right about the time my channels got deleted, there's a scene near the end where this old law man is talking to his father who lost a leg and now gets round in a wheelchair. (Imagine my channels were my legs) The old guy said that he tried to get back what he lost, to try and get the mobility on one leg that he had on 2, but he realised that it was impossible and he was just killing himself trying in vain to recover that which was unrecoverable. "It was time to put a tourniquet on that wound and let it go." he said.
That's what I feel is the correct response to this situation, as though a weight has been lifted,
was fun while it lasted, but now it's time for new and different methods of getting the truth out.
The other reaction I got was "Yay! Another one bites the dust!" (and far more brutal and sadistic sleights),
the jumping for joy at my demise and the utter desolation it caused me came forth from people with a kind of demonic countenance, that although was not unexpected, the level of malevolence and cruelty with which they expressed themselves spoke of a much darker and deeper issue at the heart of this "woke" cancel culture cabal.
For me, the loss was more personal than anything else, I know that not one person living had absorbed every single radio broadcast and video over a 13 year long career, (all my American Freedom Radio archives also got lost and deleted at one point a few years ago) but it's not the videos that I feel the loss of per se,
it's the people.
Many of those people, are no longer with us, in particular are 3 women who featured heavily on my channel in the early days.
Vapi Kupenga who mentored me in talk radio at Radio Waatea Urban Maori Radio, told me the reason her show was so popular, is because she could take all these big global issues, and relate it to MAORI.
It taught me that I could talk about these global issues and relate them to AMERICANS, which was where my audience focus was at the earlier part of my career.
At the time, Vapi Kupenga had the largest audience of any radio show in New Zealand on late night Thursdays, even higher numbers than the lunchtime talk radio sensation "Willie & JT" on Radio Live (both of whom are now elected members of the NZ government).
I called her "My Auntie Vapi" and she'd taken me under her wing in the early days as a young activist, even today, many of my clothes are hand-me-downs from her son.
Her funeral was on the same day as another activist who mentored me, Penny Bright.
Penny "Bloody" Bright, "Her Warship", taught me everything I know about the mechanics of New Zealand local government and state capture corruption, I made over 100 videos of her at protests, public meetings and on talk radio which after her death I committed to on a playlist called "RIP Penny Bright" including the funeral video I made for her which is still on the "Honouring Penny Bright" Facebook page I created.
The idea was to ensure that her expert knowledge would be available for future generations,
guess I was wrong.
Third was Evelyn Gilbert who wrote the blog "Aotearoa A Wider Perspective",
her life was tragically cut short by Liver cancer days after being given a job writing for the Dominion Post,
her death was difficult for me to bear and I suffered the worst most crippling grief I've ever felt,
she was the one who knew so much about CPTSD (Complex post traumatic stress which I also suffer from)
that I could call her when things were too much for me,
she always had a way of turning an emotion into a thought,
a thought into understanding,
and with understanding, came calm.
I made over 80 videos with her on a "RIP Evelyn Gilbert" playlist including our segments called "Counter Spin" where we experimented with short videos talking about single news items.
Those are just 3 people out of 2000 whose knowledge, experience, wisdom and understanding of the real issues at play in New Zealand and the world helped to forge a radical realignment of my perspective and comprehension.
When YouTube took my main channel and my backup channel on a Saturday morning at 8:35am and 8:36am respectively, it was as though I'd lost these women all over again,
then my last remaining channel was demonetised and deleted a week or so later.
The record of their existence and the historical importance these women represented are now basically destroyed.
I am just thinking about the fact that this year (2021) alone, we lost Rosa Koire, Alan Watt & Ian R Crane, and now their interviews from my channels are gone too, it begins to stack up how much is truly being lost here with each passing day, the worst part, is that we literally do not know how much has been lost, or exactly what was lost, because there was just so much of it.
I thought about appealing of course, but the how and why are a bit tricky when they never tell you why they deleted you, not to mention the only way to appeal is through YouTube and you have to sign in with the account that is banned... which of course... you can't.
Let's back up a little bit to the Christchurch Mosque Massacre, before that incident, nobody woud have let the government take their guns or censor the internet or throw people in jail for sharing a video.
Before that incident I'd never been censored in the middle of a live stream, never had a video removed for hate speech or been visited and called by police 6 times in one week.
I had a call from a jounralist asking if I thought I was one of the names on the governemnt's watch list, I said "One can only hope."
At the first month of that incident I'd earned over $3000 in Superchat donations from my audience before getting demonetised, we managed to restream our live shows to the backup channel however but once it earned over $1000 in a month that channel was demonetised as well, so ostensibly, I've lost $4000 per month since March 2018 in revenue due to youtube demonetisation.
Now fast forward to Covid, before that hit, nobody would have tolerated the media doing 24/7 coverage of a single news issue, nobody would have let the government force them to wear things on their face or allow themselves to be tracked and traced wherever they went and they certainly wouldn't tolerate forced vaccination, let alone vaccine passports, they certainly wouldn't have tolerated the censoring and deplatforming of every single voice that questions the narrative either.
After Covid, I had my Twitter account banned, no reason given.
I had my Patreon account banned, they didn't even tell me they removed me, let alone tell me why, that was over $1000 USD a month in revenue lost.
And of course, recently, having all 3 youtube channels deleted within 2 weeks of eachother with no specific reason given, including my last monetised channel providing $400USD a month in revenue.
So assuming censorship and demonetisation wasn't a thing,
I could have potentially been making roughly $4400USD a month in revenue from just Youtube and Patreon alone since 2019 assuming there was 0 growth, that's nearly $50,000 a year in lost revenue!
Destroying people financially is a commonly used tool when it comes to silencing your opposition, but silencing them entirely? That's leading us into very dark territory.
Imagine for a moment that the government went full-on tyrannical, brutal, genocidal even, imagine they were breaking down peoples doors and injecting them with lethal concoctions that caused the victim to flop around on the floor like a fish and die, they're not doing that right now of course (or are they?).
But let's say they started and every single person who would expose or speak out about it, had been censored already, how would YOU know?
More to the point, how would you know before it was too late to stop it?
I'd written an assertion (NOT a submission) to the government regarding their recent online hate bill, (I believe named so because the government hates everything that's online) and their provisions to criminalise hate speech (named so probably because they hate speech).
While it's always been illegal to tell defamatory lies and defraud people (assuming one isn't the government who can retroactively pass laws to make breaking the current law legal) the kind of, for lack of a better word blasphemy laws the government is proposing will essentially usher in a new dark age, a dark age caused and perpetuated by the lack and the availability of knowledge itself.
This new bill grants government the ability to classify anything they don't like as hate speech without proof, then send people to jail, have their content removed and fine the platform that hosted them.
Get the picture?
The goal is to make it illegal to think or say unapproved government messages,
if one does however broadcast the truth, no one will hear it, because it will be filtered out first, deleted second and then jail thirdly, one cannot defend oneself or appeal of course, because the government makes up the rules as they go along.
The internet snitches they plan to employ to do the job don't need any qualifications in fact checking or journalism.
There's a provision in the bill that automatically absolves their agents of all responsibility and denies the victim any compensation if they happen to be incorrect.
Would they ever be proven incorrect?
See above where it says they can make up the rules as they go and classify anything they don't like as hate speech without needing any evidence? Yeah...
So in short, I'm scared guys, really terrified actually, I feel very alone, depressed even.
But does that mean I'm going to stop broadcasting the truth? NO!
If I have to go to jail or give my life to ensure that the world my baby girl grows up in is free, then it is a sacrifice I am willing to make.
One time I used this analogy in an interview with Clif High from the web bot program, saying that humanity is like a spring, if you hold it down, it's harder to keep down, you need to keep the pressure on really hard or it will just pop back up.
Clif corrected me, he told me no, said to use an organic example, that humanity is like a water spring, when you try to plug a spring that is flowing to the surface, it starts burrowing sideways through sand, mud and rock, bursting through to the surface from unpredictable places.
So although I see everything becoming much worse before it gets better, after 13 years of activism, journalism and talk radio, I feel like I've done my part and could easily retire with a smile on my face and no one would begrudge me if I did.
Not going to quit of course, because the alternative is getting enslaved and subsequently exterminated by ruthless criminal sociopathic scumbaggery.
Gimli Son Of Gloin said it best "Certainty of death... Small chance of success... What are we waiting for?"
The one real ray of light for New Zealand has been Billy TK, the man is a relentless, tireless wellspring of energy who produces so much work per week exposing scumbaggery that it blows my mind!
Just did a 3 day tour with him to be the MC, audio guy and the live streaming guy all in one, we had a great time and received so much gratitude and support from the people in Taupo, Levin and Wellington that it's rearranged my perceptions of safely broadcasting from home in my office.
The thought here is legacy, what we leave behind.
Been teaching Billy a little bit here and there about the tech side of things, but also, about the long term lessons of activism.
This has given me new purpose as the realisation dawns that age isn't about the years, it's the mileage, so roughly speaking I feel like I'm about a thousand years old, not emotionally of course (I'm like 16 in that regard let's be honest), but in terms of how much knowledge and wisdom has been imparted to me over the years by simply listening to those who came into possession of it through many years and lessons learned the hard way.
In this way, I was able to glean lessons from thousands of my elders and learned individuals from hundreds of different disciplines which had taken them a lifetime of experience to discover.
This was knowledge they were willing to bestow for free, provided anyone was willing to just keep their mouth shut and listen.
G Edward Griffin told me that when he was a young activist in the 60's he wanted to get everything solved by like... the next election or something.
The old guys he was just starting to learn off even back then told him "Look son, the enemies of humanity have spent hundreds of years getting this system to where it is now, it's going to take multiple generations to turn it back again."
The main lesson I took from that (in terms of the here and now) is if you're in it for the long haul, pace yourself, take care of yourself and don't expect everything to be solved anytime soon, just keep doing your part to the best of your ability.
I feel Billy is doing the job to a greater degree of visibility and effectiveness than anyone else at this point, so largely other than broadcasting 3 days a week on Twitch, I'll be spending a bit of time trying to use my various technical, oratory, musical and writing skills to enhance the reach and effectiveness of him and anyone else who asks for my help.
Dr Rima E. Laibow told me about what I am now calling the 7th incidence principle,
It works like this, if someone at one point in your life tells you something that is completely contrary to your very strongly held belief, you'll tell them "f**k off you're a conspiracy theorist!"
You'll probably say the exact same thing to the 2nd, the 3rd, the 4th, the 5th and the 6th person, but the 7th incident... Statistically, (remembering this is a bell curve where some people need only be told once, while others a hundred times) the 7th different time in your life that someone from a 7th different social circle tells you the exact same thing that is contrary to your strongly held belief, you'll consider changing that belief.
So how does that work on a practical level if your ideal goal is to wake people up?
David Icke told me "You cannot convince anyone of anything, but you can tell them things they cannot unhear."
I call it the information grenade, you pull the pin chuck it in, walk away and it blows up in their face later.
But in this time of great confusion how does one even know what a fact even is?
Think about a 3 dimensional object, you can look at it from 6 sides, the front & back, left & right, top & bottom, the same is true of understanding information and facts using the journalistic method, who, what, when, where, how & why.
Only once you can answer those questions about a topic do you possess a solid understanding capable of being taught to others.
On a side note, this is incidentally why dyslexics make such good journalists and such bad spellers, because when you or I look at a cube, we can only look at it from one side at a time, the dyslexic on the other hand sees it from all sides at once, imagine trying to read and spell when the letters are doing that? Difficult.
But imagine trying to understand a vast conspiracy with multiple groups, histories, cultures, technologies and plans? Much easier than for the average person.
This is part of a broader realisation that perhaps ones perceived "disabilities" or "learning difficulties" are actually for lack of a better word ones super power?
A power that powerful people don't want you utilising because it makes you a threat to the banal existence they have planned?
I remember in high school my counselor tried to convince me that I had ADHD, I looked at the symptoms on the sheet and went "wow, that sounds a lot like me!"
Later in Auckland University Business 101, I saw the exact same list of behavioral traits on a slide, they were the traits of an Entrepreneur.
So the question becomes simple, if I have some kind of power, what is it, how do I utilise it?
You are a 5th dimensional creative entity,
first dimension is a dot,
the second dimension is a line,
the third dimension is a box,
the fourth dimension is the box moving through time,
the 5th dimension is the box,
That's where all your thoughts are right now,
everything you've ever thought about saying but never said,
everything you've ever thought about building but never constructed.
Your job as a 5th dimensional creative entity is to take those 5th dimensional thoughts,
spend your 4th dimensional time on them,
manifest them into the 3d reality.
Only there can people actually see your creation,
they can then follow the lines,
connect the dots,
and trigger for their own 5th dimensional ideas.
If you do not however spend your time creating things and inspiring others,
you will grow resentful of those who do.
Every musician, film maker and all creative artists were inspired by the works of others who came before them.
Your ideas do no one any good in your head.
If you have an idea, you have 5 seconds to act on it, stop reading, stop listening, stop watching, stop talking, start creating, write down that idea, because after the 5 seconds is up, you'll either forget that you ever had the idea or lose the motivation to manifest it.
The "ubiquoutous THEY" are focused now on eradicating the works of people like myself from existence.
I was once asked on a radio show "Come on Vinny, give it to us straight, is the world flat or is it round?"
I replied that "It's a holographic fractal mandelbrot created by a collective consciousness that wants to experience itself subjectively." and they were like "Whoooaaa... LOL!"
You see it's quite simple really,
the way a hologram works is it's basically a storage device of information,
but even if you delete the data, the data still remains,
but at just about half the resolution,
if you delete it again, the same thing happens,
doesn't matter how many times you delete it,
the data, ALL the data, still remains.
A fractal mandelbrott is a computer projection with a cool looking swirling psychedelic pattern,
but as the camera zooms into one of the outer spirals of the pattern,
the entire pattern you saw from far away appears to repeat itself,
no matter how far in you zoom, the pattern repeats, infinitely.
I read in "Suppressed Inventions & Other Discoveries" by Jonathan Eisen (another great mentor of mine) that in the early 1900's a man invented a new kind of microscope using granite crystals that gave up to 60,000x normal magnification, electrostatic microscopes we use today have about 10,000x.
So when he looked at a cell, it appeared to move around of its own free will,
even though it's part of a much larger organism,
so he zoomed inside that cell, found it was made up of all these other cells,
so he looked inside those, and they were made up of other cells too!
Again and again, it was life, life built upon life, built upon life, infinitely down the scale.
And if life exists infinitely down the scale, why not up the scale?
Let's say that we, the human species (and all the other species) are like the cells,
the microscopic organisms (of scale) to the planet,
the planet is but a tiny cell in a much larger organism called the galaxy,
the galaxy just one small cell in an organism called the universe,
which is but one small cell of something even greater that we don't even have a word for yet, and so on.
With all those organisms of scale,
isn't it a nice to know that even with the infinite expression of everything that exists or ever has,
existence itself didn't feel complete,
so it created you, and you, in turn, will create something unique,
something you can do something nobody else is doing, and do it better than anybody can.
That's what I think all our consciousnesses are created to do,
as David Icke says "I am infinite consciousness having an experience as David Icke".
Now that means that your consciousness exists to have some kind of effect.
I remember doing countless protests with Penny Bright where no one turned up except me and we'd just sit there holding banners beside traffic, I wondered what the point was, "There will be a ripple effect." she'd always say.
Maybe that's enough? Maybe just because we can't see the effect our actions are having on the world, just know that we are having an effect, and sometimes, the ripples travel so far that they go around the world and come all the way back home again.
You don't know what effect you'll have it's true, but you know that doing nothing has much less of one to be sure!
I once helped out a guy who'd been arrested and had his business and his health destroyed by the government during an election, no one wanted to listen to him, nobody could help him, except me,
He had a 56 page document detailing his ordeal and I told him just sit in front of the camera in my office, read it all out and I'll edit it.
It took me 3 nights in a row with bedtimes at 2am, 4am and 11am respectively before I finished editing it down to a 3 1/5 hour video.
The man later let me know at a protest as he was giving me a $100 donation that he was seriously considering suicide until I helped him.
One time a listener let me know that she was also thinking about ending her life because of knowing all this conspiracy stuff and being in a relationship with her husband who didn't believe any of it,
after listening to my show, she decided she didn't want to commit suicide anymore.
I was driving down the motorway one day and my car radio had been broken for a few years so I had to think while I drove instead of listening to music, so I asked "What do I want to accomplish after I die? Not what do I want to accomplish in life, but what do I want to achieve after death?"
The thought occurred to me that someone would get up to speak at my funeral, they'd worked nearly their whole life in some vein of activism that through their efforts managed to prevent nearly a million people from dying from one means or another.
They'd get up and say something like "there was a time in my life when I felt like giving up, like things were too hard and I didn't want to be an activist anymore, but then I met this guy Vinny Eastwood, he taught me about the lighter side of genocide and I decided that I would keep going."
The day after I had this thought, Kevin Galalae, author of 10 books on the United Nations covert depopulation agenda who has done hunger strikes at the Vatican, had his kids taken from him and endured untold hardship, made a comment on my facebook feed that was almost word for word what I'd said!
I was like "F**k! I've already accomplished in life what I wanted to achieve after death! What the hell do I do now?"
The other day I was struggling to find a guest at the last minute for a show so I called Ken O'keefe a former marine and international peace activist, it turned out that it was his birthday and oh boy did I havea birthday song for him!
He loved "Happy Birthday by The Pakehachis" so much that he said it should be on the top 40 hits of all time!
He was pretty pissed of course after his 5th 10% alcohol beer so maybe it wasn't that good but still!
During the conversation because we were relaxed and informal I let a lot of different sides to me come out,
Ken kept trying to classify me, first he said I was a communicator, then a philosopher, a jounrnalist, a musician, but he arrived finally at comedian.
I recently watched Bruce Almighty with Jim Carrey, don't know why, something just told me to watch it.
Towards the end of the film after Bruce had gone through the ideal of trying to be god, he gives the power back, he cracks a joke and god (played by Morgan Freeman) laughs and says (I'm paraphrasing here)
"That's it, the spark, that's the reason why I created you, you bring spontaneous joy to peoples lives."
So am I A communicator? Journalist? Comedian? Musician? Philosopher? Film maker? Activist? Writer?
You'd be better to think of me not so much as a talk radio host, but something more akin to a mystic.
In ancient times an initiate would have to sit with mystics and hermits, listening to them until such a time as their minds became broadened with wisdom that they too began to talk and even think as the mystics do.
When nearly a hundred of the most amazing names in the global freedom movement say things like:
"Vinny, you've hit the nail on the head" or "that was the best interview I've ever done."
I think I've earned my stripes and am now prepared to teach and help others who wish to learn.
Do you want to learn how to do any of the things I can do or just need some assistance or a quick word?
Doing live broadcasting from a phone or computer, green screen, video & audio editing, making a website, writing an advertisement script, or just some help developing an idea, just let me know.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, I really need financial help right now so please share this blog and donate at www.thevinnyeastwoodshow.com/donate.html
