Man defends children from predator: Facebook’s response is appalling

It’s an all to common trend that we see online. Child predators who utilize social media as a means of targeting children. What is equally disturbing is how the social media giant, Facebook (Meta,) responds to those who defend against these individuals. For one Facebook user, however, the situation went further than just the social media site. The predator showed up at his house, unexpectedly and uninvited. So how does Facebook relate to a predator showing up to a man’s home? Before we get into that, let’s first go into the events that unfolded prior to the man’s account being “restricted” by the platform.

“Something felt off to me…”

According to the family, the registered sex offender, Lonnie Green had befriended the youngest adult sister. Though there is not much information as to how they met, the family did implicate Facebook as the method. At this time, neither the sister nor family, were aware of the fact that the man had just been placed onto the sex registry just months before. Though he was actively around children, he at no point, disclosed this information. However, that did not prevent the family from eventually finding out.

“When I met him, I don’t know if it was my law enforcement training, but something felt very off with this man.” The primary source informed us. He goes on to tell us that initially he began watching Lonnie, whom he repeatedly caught staring at his young nieces. “It was pretty screwed up, I would watch him as he’s watching them, he would see me and immediately divert his eyes to the horses.” Upon doing the background check on him, it was discovered that Lonnie had omitted some information about himself. That information was the fact that just a few months prior, he had been placed onto the Oklahoma sex offender’s registry for sexual acts with a minor under the age of 12.

Needing to alert his family, who was still oblivious to this information, he made a post onto Facebook. However, months later, that post has now gotten his account restricted. Why? According to Facebook, speaking out against a convicted pedophile, who is actively placing himself around small children, is considered “hate speech.” Meanwhile, the predator is allowed to maintain an active account, in complete violation of Facebook’s own terms of service. Why is this? Good question let’s discuss that very subject.

Facebook: The double standards

This situation isn’t the first of its kind, when it comes to Facebook. In fact, it happens more than what people may be aware. According to Facebook’s own policy, which we’ve posted below, a person who is on the registry is not allowed to have an account, and yet we see that happen on a near daily basis. When these accounts are reported, it seems that Facebook has taken the stance of punishing the individuals who report these accounts. But it goes beyond that. They have also apparently taken the position of restricting accounts who try to alert others of a predator’s presence. Let’s ignore the fact that this man now has access to countless children. Afterall, Facebook does. We can even ignore the fact that this predator utilized Facebook to befriend a mother, gain access into her real life, giving himself access to her children, and then proceeded to gain access to other children within a family. Again, Facebook clearly is ignoring this fact also. But why?

It’s no secret that there are a few progressives who wish to make pedophilia a recognized sexual orientation. Given the extreme views that Facebook has already demonstrated, it’s not to farfetched to believe that just maybe, Facebook shares in this ideology. After all, they’re apparently classifying it as hate speech to speak out against these people. Meanwhile, Facebook’s very own policy clearly states:

Convicted sex offenders aren’t allowed to use Facebook. If you’ve seen an account that may belong to a convicted sex offender, please report it to us.Make sure you provide one of the following types of information with your report:

http://www.facebook.com/help/210081519032737/?helpref=uf_share

Regardless of this policy, Facebook continues to create a dangerous and hostile environment within its platform. While the site consistently violates its own policies, it’s not a problem that has gone unnoticed. In fact, because of Facebook’s lack of responsibility toward its users, independent social media sites are on the uprise.

What happened in this situation is appalling, at best. The fact that speaking out against a predator, who is actively trying to gain access to children, as hate speech simply cannot go unnoticed, nor should it be ignored. While the individual only got restricted for a day, that isn’t the point here. The message that Facebooks conveyed in this action, matter. Worst, it’s as we’ve already stated, this isn’t an isolated event. The bottom line is this: From outer appearance, it looks as if Facebook is willfully protecting child predators at the expense of your right to protect your family.

Windows 11: Why you should avoid it

If you’re operating a newer model computer, there is a possibility that you’ve gotten the “update to windows 11” notification. We got this update and against our better judgement, updated one of the War on Corruption computers to this new operating system. What transpired, as a result of this update, was completely unexpected. Being that our platform has always been about protecting and helping the general population, we’re going to give you a first-hand account as to why you should NOT get Windows 11. Let’s review.

Windows 11 issues

At first glance, the new operating system looks fantastic. It’s sleek, it’s fast, and it appears to be more stable than its predecessor. Of course, if all of this were true, we wouldn’t be steering you away from this new program. Microsoft released the new OS as a test, essentially. While releasing betas and various other test programs is common, one wouldn’t think that the consequence would cost them their entire computer. However, that’s exactly what is happening.

Various reports have been made in regard to Windows 11 crashing computers. regardless of these reports, Microsoft appears to have taken the “don’t care” route in dealing with this problem. In fact, those who call the company find that their customer service is lacking. So what exactly is this operating system doing to computers?

Initially, the effects aren’t immediately noticed. What you may begin to notice, however, is that the computer begins to operate more slowly. As time progresses, programs begin to freeze or simply crash. This is just the beginning of the damage that is being caused by windows 11. You’ll then begin finding that the entire computer freezes, forcing you to reboot it. It is, at this point, the real problem begins to show itself.

Upon rebooting, one of three things will happen: the computer will load to a black screen, the computer will be stuck on the splash screen, or the infamous blue screen of death. Each of these problems are your indicator that the computer has suffered damage, resulting from this new operating system. However, it doesn’t end there. Over time, you’ll find that you are rebooting it multiple times in hopes that it will actually load to the desktop. This hope is short-lived though.

If the compute is able to load to the desktop, you’ll immediately notice that programs have become unstable, they will crash, freeze, or the entire computer itself will begin to freeze. Moving forward, various drives on the computer will begin to malfunction. USB drives, in our experience, were the first to show this issue. If you have an external drive, the computer will fail to read that it’s connected. This is an indicator that serious damage has now been done to the computer.

While you attempt to do repairs, you will quickly discover that no repair you do will work. If anything, they only expedite the issues within the computer. At this point, you may consider calling Microsoft Technical Support. Don’t bother, you are wasting your breath.

Microsoft technical support

When calling a support number, you expect to have somebody who is trained within their respective field of work. With Microsoft, this doesn’t seem to be the case. Making various calls, in attempt to get assistance with our crashing computer, we found that their agents didn’t seem to have any idea of how to even begin helping. Instead, they directed us to jump through various loops, which had no merit into the actual problem.

Once they realize that they can’t do anything, they will have you revert the computer back to Windows 10. Don’t hold your breath, the damage has already been done. Upon reverting, you’ll have a breath of air believing the problem is fixed. It’s not. The instability will continue until the computer simply can’t take anymore and crashes. Meanwhile, the tech agents will simply brush you off. Don’t expect any further assistance from them. At this point, should you call again, they may schedule a call back. This is great, right? No. The fact is, they have no intention of actually calling you back. Meanwhile, you’re left with a paperweight that costs hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.

Review

Microsoft’s lack of assistance, knowledge, and integrity with their own program is deplorable. Customers who rely on their operating system are not only left in the cold, but their own employees are simply unable to assist. It’s not that all of them don’t want to, they simply lack the knowledge and training. For this reason, computer owners find themselves completely alone, unless they’re able to shovel out hundreds of dollars to get the computer to a shop.

While Microsoft seems to be ignoring the problems that this new OS has created, those who have been victimized by this unstable, horrific excuse of a program, simply can’t ignore it. But for us, this war isn’t over. While we’ve taken to pushing this article out, we still plan to deal with Microsoft themself; we may add an addendum to this article with those results. However, our primary concern at this point, is encouraging our followers to avoid this software at all costs.

Facebook supports suicide?

For those of you who follow us on Facebook you may have noticed our lack of posting. The reasons for this are due to Facebook’s continuous banning of all WoC admin. The most recent banning ties directly into this article. Let’s go into this most recent thirty day ban.

Recently, a post was made to the social media platform. The individual was apparently having a mental health crisis and simply needed somebody to talk to, no harm in that, right? Wrong. Enter into the comments, a digital “Karen.” This individual proceeded to berate the man, going as far as to taking screen shots of the post. She made it known that she had intended to send this photo to the man’s employer, who he had listed on his profile.

It was, at this point, that I defended the man. I had expected to enrage her, I did not expect the entire WoC team to be blocked for it. My reply to her read as follows:

“You know, this os a man who is reaching out for help. There is absolutely no reason to be a b**** to him. Back off.”

No sooner did I hit the post button, I was blocked from posting, for the now 7th consecutive month. Shortly after, I began getting messages from several of my admins. Like me, they had been blocked. Unlike me, they had no reason as to why.

In this block, Facebook made a clear statement. You can bully a person who is in distress. However, if you take a stand with that person, you will be silenced. You will be shutdown. With this blatant disregard for mental health, “War on Corruption” is making a new stand. This stand is against Facebook’s tyrannical and vague policies. We will not be returning to the site.

Predator gets no punishment

For anybody who has children, protecting them should be our top priority. We want to protect them from the things that could hurt them, sadly though, we sometimes are unable to. For one mother, she has taken protecting her child, and the pursuit for justice, to online social media.

Nicholas Allyn Post is a man who, by his own confession, sexually assaulted a child. His young victim, who wasn’t even 7yo, has had her innocence and her world torn apart. The predators punishment? A little over a month in jail before the charges were dropped. The lack of accountability is why the mother is bringing awareness to her case.

The victim’s mother, truntqueen2.0 as she is known on TikTok, has posted daily, fighting to get the justice that the state refuses to seek. She has gone as far as reaching out to the predator’s current trucking job, “Sutton Transport” of Wisconsin but was blocked hours later. Meanwhile, Nicholas walks free, potentially endangering more children.

It’s unknown if the state will ever pursue charges. What is known is that this is one mother who is highly motivated, determined, and has more than enough fuel to keep her fight alive. This is one fight we will stand by.

ISP, ViaSat, accused of shady business practices (PT:1)

Editorial Note: This article is not intended to act as legal advice. It is purely based on the research of “War on Corruption, LLC,” to bring awareness to a situation that seems to be rampant within the ViaSat corporation.

The internet age has allowed us to communicate on a global scale. Through the internet, we are able to call, video chat, and even conduct business that would otherwise be impossible. But, as with all things, it has a dark side to it. Just as honest people have found an avenue for discussion, socializing, and so fourth, this remains true for those who are not so honest. But what happens when the dishonesty comes from the very company who has provided you this global access? That’s the question that has lead to this article.

Viasat is a global internet company. Through the use of satellite technology, they provide the same service as any other ISP. However, unlike what you find with most ISP’s, the amount of complaints against this one is alarming. From misrepresentation, shady business tactics, and a lot of the in-between,  Worst yet, every business review site, including the BBB, reflect this.

Though its rating varies from site to site, we’re going to look at the BBB. According to the site, Viasat has a rating 1.04 out of 5. For a company that prides itself on providing internet service, this score is extremely low. Upon looking into the reviews, however, it quickly become apparent as to why.

The main nature of my complaint is the willful misrepresentation on the part of their sales personnel at the time we were investigating switching to a satellite provider. As with so many, we live in a rural area and had endured unusable DSL for years from ******** **************. We needed something better. We knew that ViaSat was not going to be perfect, but we were discussing going from a monthly fee of $78/mo for intensely unreliable service to $179/mo for service described as ‘variable once our data cap had been reached’. We GRILLED the salesperson as to what that meant, because what we had been enduring were speeds between 0.1 and 1.0 mbps. Anything under 0.8 and our internet becomes unusable and believe me I have learned a lot of tricks; everything from extensions that play videos only once they are fully buffered to tab suspenders to features on my gaming computer that allow the entire resources of my computer to be used only for one browser tab. We were ASSURED up, down and sideways that it would never, ever be worse than 5mbps at the very, very worst. With this fear assuaged, we signed up. So once again last night our data cap ran out (we pay for the highest tier; we cannot purchase more data and we have tried) and at 7pm I was confronted with a Zoom meeting and a 0.2 mbps connection. When I contacted customer service the next day to tell them that this was unacceptable and that they needed to do something, she figuratively threw up her hands and could only say ‘this is how ViaSat works.’ I told her that this apparently translated to their sales personnel lying as much as necessary to sign people up and then abdicating all responsibility once their customers were stuck in contracts. I gained the sense this was hardly the first time she had heard this. I would not mind being slowed down. I mind having totally unusable Internet as I am sure almost everyone here does. I mind even more that I was bait and switched; I don’t like liars. What this company does would be illegal in Washington state. I wish I lived there and I hope the day comes when their ‘business plan’ dries up because **** **** and ******** put them out of business. When that service comes online, I will be out the door faster than you can say ‘speed test.’

The above comment is one of the most common ones that we’ve found, in regards to the shady business tactics. The fact that their sales representatives knowingly and willfully provide false information to potential customers, falls into the category of “misrepresentation.” Misrepresentation, in the legal sense,  is defined as: Getting into a contract with a person or a company on false grounds by making statements that are not in accordance with the facts.

What this means is that if the company misrepresents itself, its provided services, or information pertaining to the contract, that contract can be classified as void. All the consumer would have to do is prove it. Sadly for Viasat, there are hundreds of reviews that establish the claim of deceit against potential customers. But Viasat is accused of doing more than misrepresenting their service and plans. In at least one instance, they tricked a potential customer into signing a contract. A contract that they were completely unaware of until they attempted to cancel the service.

In response to a callout that we did, via Twitter and Facebook, one of their current customers sent us the following statement:

I have been with Viasat for a little over a year. During this time, I have never once gotten decent service. In fact, even when my service renewed, it still registered that I had used more data than what I was allotted. After months of dealing with this, I decided today was enough; I attempted to terminate my service. Now, before I continue, I need to backtrack. When I first signed up, I paid, as shown in the image provided, the entire equipment lease charge. I did this under the impression that by doing so, I would not be under a contract and that I would own the equipment. So, back to my termination attempt.

They tell me that I am under contract and that I do not own the equipment. I explain what I was told on the phone, only to get into an escalated conversation with the representative. I end up putting my service on a hibernation, which means they’re still going to take money out of my account. The company lied to me about being in a contract, they lied to me about the service quality, and now they’re trying to dupe me out of more money. This can’t be legal, is it?

Well, let’s go ahead and answer this one. No, it is not legal. In fact, with a good attorney, you might be able to make a fraud claim. Fraud is defined as: wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain. Clearly, by informing you that you were not in a contract, when you were, they defrauded you. They defrauded you because they knew that if you attempted to cancel the service, you would be liable to pay an ETF for the remaining contractual months; this is where the personal gain comes in.

We’re still deep diving into this company. Because of the large number of complaints, we simply cannot cover it all in one article, there will be a PT: 2 in the near future. This company demonstrates the “why” people need to conduct a through investigation into any company to which they intend to conduct business. It’s unfortunate that so many people have learned this, after the fact. However, we’re going to do our part in preventing this from happening to other consumers.

America’s war on itself

Recent events have done nothing more than demonstrate the problem that has been ignored for many years. While many of us have known that this day would arrive, the vast majority sat in the comfort of their own homes, completely ignorant of what was about to come. Today, we’re going to review the rapid progression on the “war” against the American people. This is a war brought fourth by corporations and our very own government.

Election fiasco

It should be obvious that the vast majority believe the election was rigged. While our platform has always been critical of Trump, we were even more critical of the idea of having “mail-in” votes. The concept of mailing in your vote simply left to many variables for things to go wrong. While I’m not willing to blatantly state that the election was rigged, I am willing to entertain the idea that it is very likely. Even with that aside, even with my criticism of Donald Trump, I believe, without doubt, that he is being completely railroaded by Nancy Pelosi and her “goons.”

In recent months, we saw the first impeachment process against Trump. Let’s face the reality about that process, it was a bogus situation with nothing less than ill intent. Of course, this wasn’t the last attempt to destroy the now former president. In recent weeks, in a highly controversial and potentially illegal move, we witnessed a second impeachment. This process was based on the grounds that Trump incited a riot at the capital. But did he? Well, the tweets that they are using say nothing about condoning a riot. In fact, the term didn’t even appear in the tweets; the fact is, we simply could not find any tweet to which President Trump encouraged a riot. But what about the riot itself?

Mainstream media has really bitten into this one. We know things were stolen from the capital. We know that people were killed during this riot. But what many people don’t know is how this group successfully bypassed heavily armed Security, law enforcement, and even Secret Service agents to get into this building. For that, you only have to search for videos, which are being spread all over the internet. What we see in these videos are the police opening barricades to allow the protestors in. Police are seen talking with the protestors, interacting with these “dangerous” thugs. What I’m saying here should be clear: they got in because the police literally opened the doors for them. Because of these videos, some people are lead to believe that this was actually a bait to justify impeachment.

The second impeachment is highly questionable, at best. While it would still have to go court, even with the votes already being cast, Trump will no longer be in office when this happens. This would make him the first President to ever be impeached after already being removed from his position. Of course, the second impeachment is also a first. Meanwhile, as a result of this, tensions are quickly reaching a boiling point. I no longer believe that the possibility of civil war, I now wonder when it will happen.

Further tension arose with the questionable removal of Trump from social media. While many people are surprised and shocked by this, they really shouldn’t be. For years, Facebook has taken a stance to shutdown independent media platforms, or anybody who spoke against their supported political figure; Twitter is known to do the same, though not as extreme as Facebook. The basic point is: they’ve been censoring people for years now, with no accountability, and it’s not going to stop just because of who the person is. For those who are absolutely outraged by this, questions regarding our constitutional rights arise. Can a company do this? Well, that’s tricky. Technically, they are private companies. However, as I’ve said many times before, a company who is on the stock market falls into the category of being “public domain.”

Rather or not they can do this doesn’t mean they won’t. As our own government continues to put the nails into the coffin of our democracy, at the expense of the American people, we can expect to see many more reactions. The capital riot is just the start of what could very well become an outright war. While the government has the ability to prevent this, I don’t believe they will. If anything, I believe this is exactly what they’ve been wanting to happen. After all, anybody who’s observant can see that this tension has been slowly boiling for many years now.

Targeted

December 19th, marks the day that five of the seven members of the “War on Corruption” team got unbanned. For two months, we had fought a losing battle just to obtain information as to why we had gotten banned in the first place. While, to this day, nobody associated with the platform knows why we had gotten banned, it does seem that this is a calculated and deliberate attack against the platform.

Yesterday, December 25th, like so many around the world, I had a day that was filled to the brim in events. Between exchanging gifts, family time, etc. Facebook wasn’t even on the forefront of my mind. Later in the evening, when I had finally gotten some time, I check my messages. As it would turn out, I had four new messages from the same individuals who had recently gotten unblocked from Facebook. Every one of these messages were informing me that their accounts, once again, had been blocked. You can imagine my dismay to this.

At this point, I decide to take a quick glance at my profile. Although I had not been online for the entire day, it too was blocked. The vague reason being that I had violated their community standards. However, it didn’t inform me as to how I violated these vague standards nor did it show me anything that I had posted that could had been a violation. At this point, I had my confirmation: Facebook is maliciously, willfully, and with full intent, targeting my platform and harassing those associated with it. Now this is something important and I am about to explain why.

You may, or may not, be aware of this: In 2012 Facebook placed itself into the stock market. This was good financially, but very bad for how Facebook is currently operating. Because they are in the stock market, they are no longer a private company. That’s also important to note. Being that they are no longer a private company, it is no longer a question as to rather or not they can simply run the show however they see fit. For example, in a private setting, your constitutional rights don’t mean a thing. For Facebook, who is now in the public setting, the coin flips. They can’t simply censor out your rights.

Unlike the first go around, those of us who have been shadow banned from the site, have opted to simply delete our profiles. In doing so, we have effectively destroyed our own platform, by force courtesy of Facebook and it’s tyrannical approach to freelance journalism. In the meantime, we continue to seek out others who have been targeted in this way, we continue our search for a civil rights attorney, with the hope of putting an end to the illegal activities being conducted by Facebook. Until that time, we still debate the final fate for the platform on Facebook. However, one thing is cemented: It will be removed at some point.
