Why did our Alabama Unfiltered podcast get yanked from YouTube after an hour?

Last week, we interviewed Dr. David Williams of Tuscaloosa and a Concerned Doctors board member. He gave us a “where things stand with COVID" update.

He told the truth. Why wasn't that ok?

Is this ok?

Is it normal for seemingly healthy people to drop dead?

Like this OBGYN from Los Angeles?

A celebrity Hollywood doctor died while hiking in a Los Angeles Park last weekend, a report stated.

Fox News reported that Jay Goldberg, an OBGYN at a Cedar-Sinai's Beverly Hills, was found dead Sunday by first responders inside Will Rogers State Park.

It was determined that Goldberg, 53, died of a heart attack.

Or what about this story?

Remember when Comedian Heather McDonald passed out on stage in February?

Heather performed at the Tempe Improv on the evening of Friday, Feb 4, with no incident. She spent Saturday morning uneventfully with her son. Yet that night she collapsed minutes into her show. As a result of the fall, she suffered a skull fracture. She had consumed no alcohol before or during the show. She was admitted to a local hospital, where a comprehensive workup was underway.

Approximately three weeks prior, Heather received her COVID booster. She was tested for COVID-19 with a negative result.

Was that ok? Can we talk about that?

Dr. James Thorp, an extensively published 68-year-old physician, board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology and maternal-fetal medicine, has practiced obstetrics for over 42 years.

"Fetal death, miscarriage, death of the fetus inside the mom," Thorp stated, "What I've seen in the last two years is unprecedented."

Thorp explained that although he has seen an increase in fetal death and adverse pregnancy outcomes associated with the COVID-19 vaccination, attempts to quantify this effect are hampered by the imposition of gag orders on physicians and nurses that were imposed in September 2021, as reviewed in the publication "Patient Betrayal: The Corruption of Healthcare, Informed Consent and the Physician-Patient Relationship."

Is any of this ok?


Then why aren't we allowed to talk about what’s happened?

That healthy people fainted on stage or, worse, dropped dead?

That women struggle post-vax with pregnancy or with their bodies?

Aren't we supposed to listen to all women? Or is that not cool anymore?

And what is it with hospitals who still play along?

Oh, I get it.

Hospitals that receive Centers for Medicaid and Medicare funds (CMS) must play along.

But really, why? Why won't someone stand up and tell their staff that no, we know this doesn't work, and so no, we won't strap on the face paper or ask people who come into our hospital to do so? Isn't that what you do with bullies?

You stand up to them?

Where are those people?

Masks required Alabama News

I wished for just one of them a few weeks ago when one of our girls had surgery.

We had to don the dumb-as-ever face diaper.

And that wasn’t ok.

None of it is.

Why is truth still squashed and the lies still pushed?

We know the answer, don't we?

Joe Biden's government has decided that this is where we'll stay.

And he's using CMS money to keep health care professionals over the barrel.

And men and women quieted down, no questions allowed, even to their detriment.

And yes, even though we're in Alabama, we've allowed his government and ours to play us like a fiddle.

For love, why won't someone stand up for us? And keep standing?

 Or will it be us, like always, who brings up what's not acceptable to the government overlords and YouTube censors? 

Our elected officials, both state and federal, haven't fought for our health care providers to take their masks off.

They've not fought for doctor-patient freedom.

Take a look at the VAERS report.

Have our elected officials made it ok to tell women, pregnant or not, that they're not alone in their trouble?


Instead, they've given a wink and a nod to silence in exchange for a paycheck.

Instead of providing for her people, our electeds have ignored our still desperate pleas for help.

Which is pathetic.

But there is a glimpse of hope.

If we stand together, we can withstand most anything.

Stéphane Bancel, Moderna, CEO: "Sad to say, I'm in the process of throwing away 30M doses in the garbage because nobody wants them. We have a big demand problem... and are working to create demand into countries..."

And yet, despite that, he still has to toss his vaccine.

So, good on us.

What now?

Keep talking.

Let’s keep the censors and bureaucrats busy.
