YouTube and Vimeo Censorship of 2023 – Rise of the Earth Alliance

On Thursday morning, I uploaded the video trailer to my upcoming webinar on February 18 to YouTube and later to Vimeo. The trailer is titled “2023 – Rise of the Earth Alliance” and was scheduled for release on Saturday morning. The trailer covers how the Deep State’s planetary control agenda is increasingly being exposed by dedicated truth tellers around the world, and how this will facilitate major disclosures in 2023 about secret space programs, flourishing undersea and underground cities, artifacts from ancient civilizations, and visiting extraterrestrial life. However, YouTube and Vimeo viewed the trailer as harmful conspiracy theory glorifying and inciting violence and took it down. Here’s what happened.

At 11:47 am, a few hours after uploading it, I got a rude shock when I received the following message from YouTube:


I issued the following appeal to YouTube based on their claim that my video “glorifies or incites acts of violence.”

The accusation that I was glorifying or inciting violence was particularly odious to me as I have long championed nonviolent solutions to international and domestic conflicts, based on the political philosophies of Mahatma Gandhi and Martine Luther King. In fact, this was the topic of my Ph.D. thesis that was awarded to me in 1993 from the University of Queensland, Australia.

My research became widely acknowledged in the international peace and conflict resolution community due to my field work and articles promoting peaceful conflict resolution in trouble spots such as East Timor and Kosovo, while I was teaching at the Australian National University in Canberra (1994-1996). My research led to me being offered a full-time position as an Assistant Professor in International Peace and Conflict Resolution at American University in Washington DC, which I accepted.

I subsequently worked at American University from 1996 to 2001, before accepting a research position from 2001 to 2004 as a Researcher in Residence at the Center for Global Peace, after I became interested in evidence of a coverup of extraterrestrial life. In submitting my appeal, I was confident that my removed trailer did not glorify or incite violence in any way. Unfortunately, YouTube did not agree as their rejection of my appeal made clear.


Meanwhile, in the midst of my correspondence with YouTube, I uploaded the trailer to Vimeo, which also decided to remove it on Friday morning at 7:20 am. Here’s their explanation for the removal:

In both cases, YouTube and Vimeo respectively referred to “conspiracy-related content” and “harmful conspiracy theories”, which are deemed to glorify or incite acts of violence. The obvious problem is that who gets to determine what is a conspiracy theory, whether it’s harmful or not, and whether it in any way promotes violence?

In YouTube’s quick rejection of my appeal, they asserted that it violates their policy on harmful conspiracy theory. The big problem here is that as a Ph.D. trained political scientist that has been studying international conflict since 1989 and promoting peaceful resolution of protracted conflicts ever since, YouTube and Vimeo’s decisions come across as arbitrary and capricious. Surely, my views on international conflict, its genesis, connection to the extraterrestrial issue, and possible resolution, is worth the public hearing regardless of whether you agree or not with the existence of a Deep State and an ET coverup.

In my view, YouTube and Vimeo’s removal of “2023 – The Rise of the Earth Alliance” has less to do with preventing harmful conspiracy theories but more to do with providing cover for a Deep State behind a myriad of issues discussed in the trailer, including an extraterrestrial coverup.

As the UFO issue continues to go mainstream, it is inevitable that exopolitics will be ‘elevated’ from a widely ridiculed and harmless conspiracy theory to a “harmful conspiracy” theory that incites violence, racism, or whatever term Deep State-friendly social media platforms choose to use when censoring exopolitics related videos, articles, etc. I take the censorship of 2023 – Rise of the Earth Alliance as an early warning sign of the censorship that lies ahead for exopolitics researchers and activists as this year unfolds with many major disclosures.

Thankfully, the trailer is available for free at a number of alternative video hosting platforms such as Rumble, Bitchute, Brighteon, or Odysee where you can judge for yourself whether it “glorifies or incites acts of violence” or promotes “harmful conspiracy theories.” In the meantime, I recommend that you  subscribe to my Rumble, Bitchute, Brighteon, or Odysee channels, which protect freedom of speech, and registering for email updates from
