Google-owned YouTube removed the account of a leading conservative pressure group on Monday, with The National Pulse learning that the zero-strike ban stemmed from the upload of three interviews from Stephen K. Bannon’s War Room podcast, also banned on the network. In an e-mail to the American Principles Project, which saw its archive of videos removed without warning, YouTube admitted to censoring the whole account because of three historic interview clips from Bannon’s podcast, which was banned in January after a censorship campaign by far-left activists.

This week, the American Principles Project, Education Liberty Watch, and Eagle Forum, along with leaders from more than 100 organizations both nationally and in 31 states, called on Congress to rewrite the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

American Principles Project released a new poll this week showing that issues surrounding the transgender phenomenon are “toxic” for Democrats, especially when they involve children. The poll, conducted last week by Revily, Inc., surveyed 341 likely voters in the Virginia 13th District House of Delegates race between incumbent Republican Del.
