One of my fave places to find original sources as well as censored content.
- filmot.com (search youtube by subtitles, even shows you the subtitles of videos that were removed, so you can locate it elsewhere using the transcript, title, authors, etc.)
- I’ve also found a workaround for non-youtube sites, but it’s not user-friendly, but it allows you to create subtitles out of any video. Not helpful in searching via subtitles online but at least allows you to search in subtitles for evidence.
The Black Vault
- The Black Vault
- Privately run online repository of declassified government documents, with over 3 MILLION pages of documents.
- FOIA repository
- CIA Reading Room
- CIA 12 million+ pages of declassified documents, news clippings, letters, and reports cover a whole host of bizarre and fascinating subjects spanning from the 1940s onwards
- Julian Assange repository of censored, confidential, classified, or otherwise restricted official materials including news leaks, classified documents from the military and intelligence agencies, and other files provided by whistle blowers such as Edward Snowden.
The Theft of the Social Networking Invention
- PDF Version (50mb)
- This is a non-government HUGE JAW-DROPPING document (with timeline) that was put together by a team of lawyers who have been researching and collecting evidence for years. Evidence that brings to light all of the big players in the cyber world, why they created it, how they monitor people, and their control over patents.
- 1990-2018 timeline and supporting facts providing unmistakable evidence of dereliction of duty, fraud, public corruption, the appearance of impropriety, racketeering, monopoly and anti-trust by senior United States government officials, Harvard, Yale and Stanford academics and alumni, judges, law firms and their commercial accomplices
- Americans for Innovation Investigators searchable website for additional digging.
Search Archived Twitter Threads
- Rattibha (Search or Browse best Twitter Threads)

Downloading Full Videos
My ‘go-to’ for downloading videos was a Telegram bot (@download_it_bot), or https://downloaderr.com/ or the bookmarks in the link below, but this week (April 2023), I have started using a command-line interface and it’s so much faster (albeit not beginner-friendly). I have a post about it here.
- Free Online Video Downloaders (full post explaining what I use and my go-to’s for downloading full videos)
I use Video Editor (included in Windows) and Camtasia Studio (Premium) for most of my editing but the following are useful time-savers for me to download snippets, clips, convert to audio, etc:
- Save.Tube (allows you to just download the clip you want from the timestamps you select from a YouTube video) thereby – no editing required, download and share.
- CMD-line, Download Full Videos or Snippets in Seconds (Python/CMDline: I’ve also just this week (April 14, 2023) figured out how to download full videos or clips with any video online using a command prompt. This took a couple of days to learn how to do it, but now that I have figured it out, it’s the best thing ever.)
Telegram is also another way to find ready-to-download videos without needing to use a website or tool, albeit some videos might be harder to find this way. It’s also the reason I mirror all my videos to my telegram channel, (to make it easier for others to download and share).
I use Mega.nz to save and mirror all my documents (but I’ve already reached my 25Gb limit – I consider Mega.nz a safer choice than GoogleDrive/Dropbox, etc because they are have anti-globalist views and highly value privacy). My main method for organizing my evidence other than categorizing my folders, is via this blog by category and tags. (I wish it was more of a knowledge base theme, so that others can find the oodles of evidence I have here better & faster, but I’m skint until I get a miracle windfall). I am on the hunt for a better way to organize evidence (for free).
Sharing Evidence (Knowledge & Research) with others
- Create a SubStack for others to subscribe to
- Telegram channel/group
- Slate might be good for those who only have a mobile phone and want to organize links.
- I personally think we all need to be working on a united-wiki, all the researchers together.
Share Evidence Videos without Censorship:
Share Evidence Folders
- Mega.NZ (Free 25gb Cloud Drive with ability to share links to specific folders and files, automatically syncs from your local folder at whatever bandwidth you choose – recommended for document & image research)
- Filen.IO might be useful – I use Mega but Filen looks similar with 10GB free storage.
Pre-saved snippets of any text you like and insta-shortcodes:
Extremely useful if you are using command-line python scripts but can also be used for anything – for example, I now have a list of my main categories, and I can just type .beefsocial and it will automatically paste that list to any videos that I upload. Endless possibilities with this – I don’t have time to list the benefits right now. Check it out. Get it. Install it today. It’s free and you will love it, I promise.
