2017 Conservative Leadership Conference “Swampbuster” speakers are all over the news this weekend…
Singer/songwriters Joy Villa and Kaya Jones – reportedly suffered some online censorship of their new pro-Trump online music videos.
Joy received a “take down” notice from YouTube, giving her 48 hours to remove her “Make America Great Again” video – which features lots of cameo clips of faces of a wide variety of Americans. YouTube claims one of the individuals in the video complained about being featured, but Joy disputed that claim in an interview with The Blaze yesterday…
“I personally shot each beautiful American in my video and received written and verbal consent from everyone, and they all knew what the project was.”
The same article explains the monkey business going on with Kaya’s new pro-America music video, “What the Heart Don’t Know.”
Here’s the thing: I’ve actually been working on this obscure issue for over a year now.
The process and procedures for removing and taking down content on YouTube is actually controlled by a federal law passed way back in 1996 called the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). It’s possible YouTube’s hands might actually be tied on this.
Anyway, because I’ve worked on this issue I have some friends in “high places” in DC who are now looking into the matter to see exactly what happened and if there’s anything Joy and Kaya can do to resolve the problem. I’ll keep you posted.
In other CLC ’17 news…
A handful of goofball left-wing activists are trying to arrange a boycott of pro-marijuana activist and all-around political provocateur Roger Stone’s scheduled speaking appearance at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition in Los Angeles in two weeks.
Stone is leading an effort to persuade the Trump administration to let the states handle issues relating to marijuana legalization. The alt-left group Media Matters, funded by George Soros, has hopped on the bandwagon to ban Stone from speaking, claiming – and here’s a shocker – that he’s a “racist.”
“To be clear this manufactured ‘boycott’ is agitprop astro-turf, with all the usual trolls and bots featured in a heavy-handed but obvious smear campaign waged by David Brock and his minions,” Stone wrote over the weekend. “I will not be silenced in the fight for states’ right to legalize a medicinally beneficial plant that helps millions of Americans.”
So far, the Expo has refused to nix Stone from its program. You can read more by clicking here
Roger is scheduled to deliver the closing keynote address at CLC ’17 on Saturday afternoon.
Former GOP presidential candidate/author/talk-show host Herman Cain, who is black, blasted the Michigan Chronicle for recently calling Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson, who is also black, a “House Negro.”
“If being called a ‘house Negro’ is what some of us must endure for succeeding in this nation and thinking for ourselves, then let all of the ‘house Negroes’ stand up and be counted,” Cain wrote.
“Mr. 9-9-9” will be kicking off CLC ‘17’s Saturday morning program with a keynote speech.
A campus organizer for Turning Point USA was harassed by alt-leftists at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, with intimidators circling the registration table like crazed hyenas and shouting things like “f**k Charlie Kirk” and “TPUSA Nazis.”
Former Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory, who “made national news with his June 2013 party switch” to the GOP, has released a series of videos on social media covering issues such as “racism and the Second Amendment from a conservative perspective.” Learn more here
Sen. Guillory will be speaking on Saturday afternoon at CLC ’17.
Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt hosted his biggest and best “Basque Fry” on Saturday at the Corley Ranch in Gardnerville, Nevada. A couple thousand people attended despite the fact that Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Ted Cruz had to cancel their appearances due to the hurricane in Texas.
But the show went on, the event was a smashing success, and as the saying goes – a good time was had by all. Including at the “after party” at the Old Genoa Bar and Saloon – the oldest tavern in Nevada.
AG Laxalt will be speaking at CLC ’17 on Friday afternoon.
