This morning began as any other morning here at ANP with Susan Duclos and I going about our morning routines but before too long we realized it wasn't going to be just an 'ordinary' day in this first week of 2016.
As Susan got on Facebook to share our morning stories, one of the countless thankless jobs she does in our efforts to help get our stories out to the world while helping to grow our still young website, she suddenly found out that she was blocked from sharing in Facebook 'groups' as seen in the screenshot below. Strange she thought, she hadn't violated any Facebook terms of service and found it very unusual she was blocked from sharing in groups until 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning.
A short time later, Susan was conversing with Facebook friend Johnny Davis who promotes stories for another website, the very popular America's Freedom Fighters. Suddenly, Susan's Facebook 'groups' block didn't seem quite the 'lone' incident as we had previously thought. Davis, too, had been blocked by Facebook from posting in groups - and, coincidentally or not, his block was also a very short block that ended this coming Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. Davis, too, had no idea why he had been blocked and hadn't done anything 'wrong' that he was aware of.
Why have at least two websites, which happen to 'group share' a lot of stories on the 2nd Amendment, US Constitution, the unfolding situation at Hammond Ranch and many other stories of interest to like-minded 'patriots' and other law-abiding Americans, suddenly been blocked until this Saturday at 7:30 a.m.?
In this day and age of 'Hammond Ranch' and a possible attempt to illegally disarm law-abiding American people, we had to ask once again WHY Facebook is suddenly issuing short-term 'blocks' upon people who had done nothing wrong and possibly even more importantly, WHY are these blocks only until this Saturday, ending at 7:30 a.m.? We all had the same thought... is something bad going to happen prior to, or on, Saturday?
As many people know, using Facebook groups to promote stories is a very important avenue of helping a story to go get out to the American people and possibly going viral. Losing access to share in Facebook groups is certainly a hit for websites like AFF or ANP and others but of even more importance, the flow of information is being partially blocked to AT LEAST two conservative/alternative news websites, until at least Saturday. (Please see important update below.)
How many others are there also being stopped from sharing important stories in Facebook groups? Is there a reason for this happening to TWO websites at once for the same number of days, ending the same day? In the process of writing this story, we learned of 4 other people who share stories on Facebook have also been blocked.... all until this Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. What does Facebook know that we don't know? We all know that Facebook works with facets of the US government. Has Facebook been warned to block the accounts of those who share important alternative news stories to large groups where a huge number of people can gain access to viral information?
As previously stated, America's Freedom Fighters and All News Pipeline cover some of the same stories important to Americans in this amazing day and age we live in including the Hammond Ranch situation as well as the effort being made by some to take away our 2nd Amendment Rights. In attempting to block the flow of information in Facebook groups, are they also attempting to set us up for a major fall by hijacking one very important avenue of communication amongst 'like minded' people, the countless number of rapidly growing Facebook groups? The fact that AFF, ANP and other websites that we have been made aware of have all been covering the same topics leads us to believe that there is likely a very good reason that these blocks until Saturday at 7:30 a.m. have all happened at the same time and for the same time period. If any of you have had similar experiences, please let us know in the comment section below.
The next several days will show if this feeling is right or wrong but with the way issues are playing out politically in America at this very moment, being unable to share important stories of what is happening in our world within groups of like-minded people has all the markings of the cutting off of important communications and a means of disruption.
In the 1st video below, Alex Jones from Infowars talks with us about new plans that have been launched to impeach Barack Obama over his attempt to weaken the 2nd Amendment. In the 2nd video below we hear all about Hammond Ranch preparing for a Federal government raid that may be coming upon them.
We pray that cooler heads prevail on all sides of the Hammond Ranch issue.
