An internet service provider (ISP) in the North Idaho and the Spokane, Washington, area has decided to block Facebook and Twitter for its customers after some called in to complain about censorship on the platforms.

The ISP, Your T1 WIFI, confirmed that it will block Facebook and Twitter from its WIFI service for some customers starting this Wednesday, according to a report by KREM 2.

The move comes after Twitter permanently banned President Donald Trump from its platform, and Facebook locked the president out of his account "indefinitely."

Lisa Montgomery, Ken McElroy et al - Skidmore Missouri: A Cursed Town?

Skidmore is a small town in Nodaway County, Missouri, United States. The population was 284 at the 2010 Census (estimated 269 as of 2016). Despite its small population, the town has a long history of violence, and an unusually high crime rate per capita (murder rate included).

Let's go through some of the more notorious cases. The first major murder case from Skidmore, Missouri, took place in 1981. It is arguably one of the most infamous modern cases of vigilante justice.

The UK went into lockdown for the first time in March.
Only one in 10 of these extra deaths directly involved Covid-19.

More than 40,000 extra deaths have taken place in private homes in England and Wales since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, new figures show.

Extra deaths - known as "excess deaths" - are the number of deaths that are above the average for the corresponding period in the previous five years.

A total of 40,114 excess deaths in homes in England and Wales were registered between March 7 2020 and January 1 2021, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Comment: Despite the abundance of evidence showing that it is the lockdowns that are causing the excess deaths, numerous countries throughout Europe, acting in lockstep, have just enforced even harsher restrictions, and so it's likely that we will see yet another surge in preventable, excess deaths: And check out SOTT radio's:


FBI opens 160 cases related to storming of US Capitol

storming capitol building
The FBI has opened 160 case files in its investigation of the storming of the U.S. Capitol by rioters supporting President Donald Trump last week, the head of the agency's Washington field office said on Tuesday.

The assistant director in charge of the field office, Steven D'Antuono, told a media briefing that the FBI had received 100,000 videos and pictures as tips.

Comment: More from MSN:
The "scope and scale" of the investigation into last week's deadly riot at the United States Capitol is "unprecedented" and prosecutors are treating it as a "significant counterterrorism or counterintelligence" probe, Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin said during a Tuesday afternoon press briefing. FBI official Steven D'Antuono provided some numbers to prove that point, noting that the agency has opened more than 160 case files, charged 70 people, and received more than 100,000 tips so far, before clarifying "that's just the tip of the iceberg."

The charges represent a wide range of criminal activity, Sherwin said, going from simple trespassing to felony murder. He added that the Justice Department is looking at "significant felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy."

D'Antuono and Sherwin were fairly open about some of their findings — Sherwin explained that pipe bombs found on the Capitol grounds on the day of the riot were "real devices" with "explosive igniters," and it's unclear why they didn't go off — but they kept other matters under wraps, including whether they have made any progress in the investigation into U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick's death.

Sherwin went on to say that he thinks there are "a lot of misconceptions about what happened within the capitol" and he believes people will be "shocked with some of the egregious conduct" that took place.


Sentences of 'extremist' group that planned armed takeover of Russia slashed weeks after Putin intervenes on human rights grounds

Four men at the center of a plot to overthrow the Russian government by force have had their sentences reduced by a Moscow court on Tuesday. All but one are currently serving a long term in a penal colony for their involvement.

The group, which went by the name 'New Greatness', was labeled by prosecutors as an extremist cell. However, during a widely publicized trial last year, the defendants insisted they had been encouraged to set it up by undercover operatives from the police and Russia's top security agency, the FSB.

Ruslan Kostylenkov, Peter Karamzin, and Vyacheslav Kryukov each had their prison term reduced by between three and six months. However, all are still serving terms of more than six years. Another activist, Maxim Roshchin, had been handed a suspended sentence, and similarly had six months shaved off its length. This came in response to challenges from their lawyers, who insist the verdicts didn't take into consideration the motives behind their actions.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's nonsensical likening of Capitol riot to Kristallnacht is a haunting pretext for dehumanizing Trump voters

Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a video to Twitter comparing the Capitol riot to Kristallnacht.
It's disgusting enough when a manipulator diminishes the horrors of the Holocaust by disingenuously invoking the Nazis to demonize a political enemy. It's downright nauseating when the invoker is a morally bankrupt Hitler admirer.

Enter stage far-left, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The former Governor of California -- who said "I don't remember" when he was confronted in 2003 with an old interview transcript noting his admiration for the Fuhrer -- is winning plaudits on social media for posting a viral Twitter video on Sunday that absurdly compared 1938's Kristallnacht to last Wednesday's US Capitol riot.

Texas lawmakers consider secession over life under Democrat Marxism — several states interested in movement

Texas Rep. Kyle Biedermann

Texas Rep. Kyle Biedermann joined Chris Salcedo on Newsmax TV on Monday.
Kyle is leading an effort to save Texas from the Democrat Marxists who stole power in Washington DC in the 2020 election.

This is a good move by the Texas lawmakers before Democrats steal their state like they did the swing states in the 2020 election cycle.

Since Communism is against the US Constitution it may be difficult for a court to rule against the "Texit" exit.

Psychological Attack on The UK

stay at home orders
We are in unprecedented times. Not because of the deadliest virus known to mankind, but because we have never been attacked with such ferocious psychological methods as is deliberately being done today by our UK and Scottish governments; measures to coerce us, manipulate us, to scare us, to shame us, and to make us shame other people for not following orders pertaining to COVID-19 measures.

We have been warned previously by many who suffered totalitarian communism in Eastern Europe. We were warned for many decades that such a moment would come to the West if we were not vigilant enough; unfortunately, it seems that our watchfulness has failed and our liberty has been stolen.

We have a lot to learn from history and from the great Russian writer and critic of Soviet communism, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, especially in our present era of the COVID-19 Brave New Normal. In his address to Harvard University in 1978, Solzhenitsyn said:
Many of you have already found out, and others will find out in the course of their lives, that truth eludes us if we do not concentrate our attention totally on its pursuit. But even while it eludes us, the illusion of knowing it still lingers and leads to many misunderstandings. Also, truth seldom is pleasant; it is almost invariably bitter. There is some bitterness in my speech too, but I want to stress that it comes not from an adversary, but from a friend.
