We have now posted Tape #14 of The Viganò Tapes on Rumble (link) and YouTube (link).
These are a series of 18 video tapes where Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò responds to 18 of our questions.
We do plan to post tapes #15 through #18 over the next four days.
Called Strike #1 on YouTube
YouTube this past week took down our Viganò Tape #10, giving us first a “warning,” then yesterday raising the “warning” to an actual “Strike 1.”
With “Strike #1,” we cannot post on YouTube for one week.
Still, it seems that, since we had already scheduled all of the 18 Viganò tapes before the “Strike #1” was assessed, perhaps the final few tapes will continue to be posted — time will tell.
And this explains why we opened a Rumble.com account, and will be posting all of the Viganò tapes (and other tapes which will be coming out soon) on that platform, since Rumble.com, unlike YouTube.com, thus far has not been censoring news and opinion in the way YouTube seems to be doing.)
If we are assessed a “Strike #2” by YouTube for some reason they deem compelling, we will then be blocked from posting anything on YouTube for two weeks… and if we receive a “Strike #3,” then our YouTube channel will be blocked permanently.
So, then we would lose a way to communicate with the 15,000 or so people who have already signed up, for free, to receive notifications from us of anything we post on YouTube.
So, in order not to lose that possibility, we do not want to “strike out”and be banned from YouTube.
So, we ourselves took down Tape #9 from YouTube, hoping that might be enough to avoid a swinging strike #2, or even a called strike #2.
We were told the “Strike #1” was due to YouTube’s judgment that the archbishop is spreading “medical misinformation.”
For this reason, we will try not to post anything medical at all, though, for example, hundreds of doctors — thousands, indeed — from around the world seem to be expressing concern that there might, possibly, be evidence (I will not put in any links here, but you can find them if you search for them) of various unexpected negative effects due to injecting a substance (I won’t name the substance) into one’s body under the threat of losing one’s job, or of losing one’s pay (and, of course, then being menaced with the grave danger of being unable to buy good food for one’s children if one does not receive the substance into one’s veins; see this troubling news out of Italy), or of being dishonorably discharged from the military (see this link).
So we will not post anything about such things, though it would seemingly be an act of brotherly and Christian love, of Christian discipleship, to try in every way, including risking one’s very livelihood and reputation, or even one’s very life, to prevent innocent children, even one innocent child, from having serious negative health effects from something which may, in the months and years ahead, turn out to be harmful to them.
Not a word.
I do this because it’s a free country, and freedom of the press is in the first amendment to our Constitution.
What does the First Amendment say about freedom of the press?
“The First Amendment is one of the great statements in the history of human rights. It declares: ‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.’ That means the government cannot punish you for your views, thoughts, or words, even if they’re unpopular save for very narrow limits. But we the people can say what we think—and the press can perform its essential role: To agitate, investigate, and scrutinize our leaders and institutions. That freedom is the difference between a democracy and a dictatorship.” (link)
“Thomas Jefferson thought it so important that he said, ‘The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.’ So why is freedom of the press so important? During New York Times Co. v. United States, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black said, ‘The press was to serve the governed, not the governors.'” (link)

Here is Question #14, and the beginning of the archbishop’s answer:
Question #14: But some say the Enlightenment was influenced by certain Eastern philosophies that started to reach the West…
Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò: The neo-pagan philosophies and currents of Eastern spiritualism have insinuated into our society a positive evaluation of concepts that originated in a Gnostic and Masonic matrix. This is not a coincidence: many of these movements are nothing other than the religious declination of the philosophical principles of the Enlightenment, of relativism, of subjectivism (…)
