This is a full out assault on our civil liberties. Operative word: cache.

Well well well Tit for tat North Idaho internet provider bans FB and twatter


https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/othe...ns/ar-BB1cFgr9

The decision comes after Twitter and Facebook banned President Donald Trump from social media platforms in the wake of the U.S. Capitol riots.

Per KGW8, the decision could violate the net neutrality law in Washington state. The company said it planned to block Twitter and Facebook because the company received complaints from customers.

“It has come to our attention that Twitter and Facebook are engaged in censorship of our customers and information,” the company said in an email to customers.
“Our company does not believe a website or social networking site has the authority to censor what you see and post and hide information from you, stop you from seeing what your friends and family are posting,” the email reads. “This is why with the amount of concerns, we have made this decision to block these two websites from being accessed from our network.”

Instead, everyone is going to see soon that Trump faced serious legal jeopardy long before Operation MAGA Insurrection; the attack on the Capitol of this country, with the intention to murder lawmakers, was only an effort to stay in office in order to avoid that legal jeopardy.

You guys should feel ashamed, and I think before each of you reaches the end of your time, you will.

cith, Brother I don't like guest to this site to come in our house and make snide remarks to our Brothers. A guest can come here and express their views civilly, or be an ass and get shown the door. So far MrMojok has not shown much value added. His last post prior to this thread was on 04-30-2019, 21:17. So now he waltzes back in and starts throwing crap. I'm not impressed.

Yes ma'am, they have some things to work through. As I may have mentioned in the (seemingly other) Civil War thread, their usage went up 750% in the 48 hours following the events in that office building that houses Congress (and apparently used to house some now stolen SIPR laptops that were left lying around). At any rate, part of that increase was from refugees, and part was a bunch of the OPFOR coming over to try to comb the site for any dirt they could use. They'll get it squared away.

But the war is on.

OAN is back up and running this morning.

Headline is: FBI warns of mass protests at all 50 state capitals by armed insurgents (aka domestic terrorists) which they are being called by leaders of the NG.

Crazy as it is but a 2011 thesis seems to have had some pretty accurate insights as to where things were going...

Although not necessary for insurgent mobilization, a Perfect Storm of converging existing conditions (globalization, demographic shifts, anti-Christian attitudes, and increasing domestic militarization) may threaten America’s white non-Hispanic Christian population and potentially foment an insurgency. ...within the United States.
Interesting target demographic, leading to a narrative we hear everyday, that its white supremacy. This narrative is the mantra (lets call it was it is) of the democratic socialist and MSM has used to program and justify their attack on civil liberties.

Edit to add: All attack or justification for attacks on civil liberties by the SDP (SDS), are grounded in academic scholarship.

I dont care for insults to our regiment either but this asshat is the equivalent of a 4 year old calling us doodoo heads and I dont feel insulted.

I thought ODNT and Tom Kelly had good response. Back it up or be ignored.

In the regiment I remember, insults were part of the game and great pride was taken to give as well as you get and no mercy was shown to anyone with thin skin.

In the end; I would rather argue with someone who disagrees with me than listen to some sycophant tell me I'm the best.

Well to be fair, she also blamed whiteness for the riots of the last 8 months as well.

Maybe conservatives should listen to Kwanzaa Bot and learn about Ujamaa. Build their own servers (and banks and credit cards)

And then, Trump happened and the people coalesced around him and his policies both foreign and domestic and the world according to them was right again.

Only the Left was left out because they lost the perceived power they once had. They honestly believed Hillary Clinton should have been president and their rewards for obedience to the oligarchy that promised them riches and power over the people disintegrated. At least that’s what they were told and taught in school.

Eric needs to write his follow up, it’ll be a #1 Best Seller on the New York Book List.
