Hotel willfully endangers customer lives

When customers check into a hotel, they have the expectation that the rooms are going to be safe. For customers who dare to visit the ‘Executive Inn,’ located at 2323 Boren Blvd, Seminole, Ok, checking in is literally placing your life in immediate danger. The hotel, from our investigation, is infested with roaches. However, the roaches are the least of your concerns. Black Mold, which is known to be lethal, is rampant within the rooms. How can this situation become worst? The hotel knows about it but continues to check customers into these rooms.

One individual, who wishes to be identified as J.S., recently visited the state for a wedding. After spending many hours aboard a train, he was looking forward to having an actual bed. However, this simple desire ended with him being rushed to the local emergency room. We met up with J.S. as he was getting his belongings and leaving the hotel. When entering his room, we were appalled, and sickened, by the site. Black Mold had covered multiple areas of the room, more than an inch of water had seeped through the carpet and surrounding floor. The most shocking of all was the mushrooms growing near the bed, located to where it would be located out of the sight of most customers.

We had also made contact with a woman, identified as R.D. She had informed us that she too had become very sick after staying at this hotel. Like the room of J.S., her room was infested with roaches and black mold.  But it doesn’t end there. Google holds many reviews from customers warning of the conditions of this hotel. So, doing what we do best, being that we were on site, we went to the hotel staff to get answers.

The hotel staff not only made it obvious that they did not care, they went as far as to admit that they were fully aware of the black mold. They knew that these rooms were a death sentence waiting to happen and yet they did nothing to resolve the problem. Armed with photographs I did the only humane thing possible: I made a claim to the State health department (we will post updates to this article.)

Negligence of this kind is something I have never witnessed before. The fact that the hotel is not only fully aware of this problem, but choose to continue placing customers into a situation that may very well kill them, is absolutely inexcusable. Until the legal process is complete, hopefully with their closure, it is important that the word get out; people need to be aware of what danger they are in while staying at this location. We have included some of our photographs below.

Hertz car rental: accused of filing false charges

Every year, millions of people rent vehicles. Rather it be for a simple trip, business, or a vacation, renting a car is generally a hassle-free method of transportation. However, one car rental company has a serious system problem, one that is costing people more than money.

Hertz car rentals is a national car rental service. While there are generally no problems, for a select group of unlucky individuals, the problems in committing no crime, renting a car, and driving it may be just enough to land them in prison. For years Hertz has had what appears to be a glitch within their system. This issue seems to be triggered when customers attempt to extend their rental time. While this doesn’t always occur, more than a dozen people have recently filed a class action lawsuit against the corporation.

The lawsuit makes the claim that Hertz has knowingly filed false police reports against their own customers. The reports filed by the massive corporation falsely accused multiple customers of car theft. In one such instance, a Michigan man found himself in prison for five years. Meanwhile, Hertz has taken absolutely no responsibility for the damages they have committed against these innocent people. In fact, it appears as if they have continued to utilize the police for this deceptive practice.

The undeniable damages caused by this company should be met with some form of justice. Though the company could start by simply admitting that a series of horrible mistakes were made, it is unlikely that such a confession will occur. The people who have been effected by the false arrests, charges, and so fourth, will forever have to live with the knowledge that, what should had been a trusted company, is more than happy to throw its own customers under the bus for a quick buck. Worst of all, there doesn’t really appear to be any accountability toward the company for these horrific events.

 

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.

Inside CPS: A story of survival

We’ve all seen the claims on Facebook. The claims of wrongfully taken children who are placed into foster care, and how the system violated the rights of the parents. This isn’t one of those articles. This article is from the perspective of one of those children, now grown. In this article, we are giving the raw details, the only omission will be to their name, as per request. The reasons behind this will be clarified by the end. We also want to state, that the actual story being told is word-for-word what they sent us. Though we’ve separated the story into categories, this is 100% their experience within the system.

Pre-CPS

As a young child, I had a rather uneventful life. Back in those days, we went to school, we went home, we did normal kid stuff. I had no understanding of the legal system, I thought police were the good guys, and I had no idea what CPS was; that was about to change. I believe I was in fourth grade when they first showed up. To this day, I can recall the caseworker’s name. From what I have learned, over the years, my family was having problems with the principal at my school. As a result of this, he decided to file a false abuse claim against my parents. Keep in mind, I was only a child and yet this scumbag dragged my siblings and I into his problem.

The caseworker showed up, with the police. I may had been young but I wasn’t stupid, I knew something bad was going on. I don’t recall much of it, I guess I blanked most of it out, over the years. What I do recall is the police informing the caseworker that there was no grounds to take us; I had no idea what they were even talking about. It’s important to note that, at this time, my parents were in the process of remodeling the kitchen. Naturally, the kitchen was a bit chaotic, as a result of this. I mention this because it’s going to an important piece of information shortly.

The caseworker was obvious pissed off by what the officer had stated. I recall her telling my parents that, “this wasn’t over. She would be back,” and she was. The following day, the same caseworker arrived with two different officers. These weren’t the same officers she had brought the previous day. Once again, they intruded into my family’s house. They saw the kitchen and the repairs that were being made. More importantly, they saw my father’s 100 year old shotgun. The rifle didn’t work and it was pretty obvious that it didn’t. It hung above the door, which lead into the hallway. It was a bit of a piece of family history, nothing more. That rifle and the kitchen would be the reasons we were removed.

The officers began forcing my siblings and I out the door. I resisted, I began to run up the street only to be caught. The caseworker had informed my parents that the court hearing would be the following day. However, a nosy neighbor of ours overheard her tell an officer to get us to the courthouse because the hearing was actually that day. Thank God for nosy neighbors. My parents barely made it in time, explained to the judge why they were late, and had a seat. For the next several years, this would be our lives. CPS, Court, abuse, Court…you get the idea.

Post CPS

After the circus, or hearing, we were sent to some sort of “halfway” house. I forget exactly what it was. During this time, my parents had limited visitation. They were instructed to not tell us anything about the case. They weren’t even allowed to mention it so we still had no idea why we were taken. I remember it being a Thursday evening. A couple had walked into the facility, they were foster parents. Unfortunately for my siblings and I, they were there to pick us up. Though I tried to fight, I was simply to small to do so. By the end of it, we were in their car, going to some strangers house, in some town I had never heard of. I wish I had been strong enough to fight back, perhaps I wouldn’t have the issues that I now have.

Upon arriving, they introduced us to their family, showed us our rooms, and gave us some food to eat. At first, they seemed like decent people; that wouldn’t last long though. By the end of the first week, the abuse toward me had begun. At first it wasn’t severe, but it quickly became so. I’ll try to detail what I can, just please keep in mind that I have severe PTSD from what I endured.

The abuse and results

One of my siblings was an infant. It first started with me asking a question to the foster father. At the time he had been changing her diaper. Though I forgotten what I had asked, I never forgot his response. At first, he simply said nothing and continued doing what he was doing. He placed the dirty diaper next to him, didn’t even bother folding it, the reason will be obvious shortly. After wiping her, he got up, put the wipes into the diaper, and jerked me by the arm to the garage. He had yanked my arm so hard that I recall hearing it pop.

The garage wasn’t connected to the house, it was a separate building. Once inside, he pushed me down onto a metal chair. I recall him saying something like, “You think you’re going to fucking interrupt me? Now you sit out here until I decide you’re good enough to come back inside.” He then proceeded to place the diaper on my head before warning me of what would happen if I removed it. I don’t recall how long I was out there, but I recall it being very cold outside. I was out there for what seemed like hours, with a shit filled diaper sitting on my head. This would become the “norm” for me. The abuse only got worst.

To short-hand a lot of it, I’ll just say that I was beaten on a near daily basis. If anybody in the family was upset, even if I wasn’t involved, I got beaten. I was bullied by their kids, who did no wrong, but that wasn’t even the worst of it. About three weeks into nightmare, the sexual abuse began.

It was always done in the bathroom. He would force me to lean over the bathtub, the toilet, whatever he could get my small body over, and he would do things. At first, he used his fingers to “pleasure” me, as he would say. But it only got worst. Fingers turned into instruments, and instruments turned into penetration using his genitals. I still have nightmares over this, it’s something that has never left my memories. When I didn’t comply, he would fill the bathtub with scolding hot water. One of two things would happen: He would either force my head under the water, until things began to fade, or, he would simply pour the burning water down my back.

The breaking point

After so many weeks of being beaten, raped, tortured, you name it, I had finally snapped. I found a pistol in his bedroom. I casually picked it up. I don’t know if it was loaded, I didn’t care, I was going to shoot this man. I walked into the living room, aimed this pistol at him, and I fired and missed, blowing out their television instead. I won’t lie and say I regret it, I only regret missing him. Within twenty-four hours, I was being placed into a psychiatric ward at a local Children’s hospital.

While my biological family knew what was going on, they were powerless to stop it. Even with multiple reports to CPS, the agency who protects children, stated that I was lying. They claimed that I was simply trying to get revenge on the foster parents for taking us away from our biological parents. The agency, in the meantime, was working on sealing the files, which they did after the case was finally dismissed.

The conclusion

It’s to late to save me, I’m already a lost cause with my PTSD, clinical depression, suicidal thoughts, and what-not. So, I have nothing to gain from sharing this story. So why bother? I’m sure you’re wondering that. I’m not sharing it because I want to. I’m sharing it because somewhere in the world is another child who is going through what I went through. They need to understand that they’re not alone. They don’t have to be alone. They need to know that they can fight back, they may have to dig far into themselves to find that strength, but they can fight back. CPS has never acknowledged what was done to me. To this day, the files remain sealed and they deny anything ever happened. Yet here I am, with my mental and emotional scars, telling you the story that apparently never happened.

Thank you for taking the time to listen.

American trucking company forces woman to suffer?

We all know the importance of the commercial drivers who traverse our highways. These men and women sacrifice weeks of their lives, living on the road, to deliver the products that we all use on a daily basis, without these brave individuals, our country would simply come to an abrupt halt. However, as we have reported before, the industry is riddled with flaws, corruption, and complete disregard for these individuals. If you are curious as to the source of all of this, you only need to look as far as the companies themselves. With that in mind, this brings us to a disturbing story that we have been made aware of. This story derives the transportation carrier, ‘Hirschbach Motor lines.’

Events unfolding

Recently, a serious winter storm struck most of the Midwest. Parts of the country, such as Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana to name a few, were at a complete disadvantage as they desperately attempted to ward off the ice and snow, which had accumulated on the roads. Meanwhile, in Denton TX., a driver and his fiancé were walking into a truck stop for food. This mere decision would become the start of a dispute that would last hours.

They returned to the semi with little issue. However, as the young woman began to climb up its steps, she suddenly slipped, falling to the ground, and ultimately breaking her arm. Multiple drivers attempted to assist the young woman, including her soon-to-be husband, eventually getting her safely into the vehicle. As per the company’s policy, the driver called to report the incident, citing that she was in immediate need of emergency assistance. The company disregarded this. As he continued to fight with company, the driver began utilizing what medical training he had in hopes of easing her pain.

The feud

The driver continued his contact with the dispatch department, only to be given answers that, according to the young woman, were impossible. He was given suggestions such as:

  1. Taking the entire truck and trailer to the hospital. We are told this was impossible simply because both vehicle and trailer could not fit into the parking lot.
  2. Call Uber or a taxi. This was impossible due to the winter storm, they simply weren’t operating their cabs or Ubers.
  3. Drop the trailer. While this was a feasible solution, the company refused to give the driver a drop location. Dropping the trailer without their consent could had potentially cost him a job or been deemed as an abandonment by the company, which we are told is a career ending accusation.

In the end, it would be more than twenty-four hours before the young woman would get to a medical professional. Not only is this a complete disregard for human life, which is apparently a common theme within companies, it’s illegal.

Synopsis

The facts here should be rather apparent. The situation involves a young woman, riding a commercial vehicle that is owned by the company. She has a misfortunate event that leads to a broken arm. The company, at this point, has a legal responsibility: they must get her medical treatment within a timely fashion. In not doing so, the company put her at risk of contracting an infection known as ‘osteomyelitis.’ This is an infection of the bone. Though uncommon, it can become a life-threatening situation.

Furthermore, the carrier allowed her to be on the semi, documents submitted to us further confirm that the company was fully aware of the fact that she was authorized to be present, this only furthers the company’s liability in this situation. By doing nothing, providing the driver with no plausible solution for getting her medical treatment, the company has only successfully created a potential act of litigation, one to which they could not possibly win.

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.

Another Facebook purge?

This article is very different from anything we’ve written in the past. While our normal policy is to not write anything to which we are directly related, we have been forced to make an exception. Over the past month, I have uploaded three YouTube videos. The videos not only explain the apparent attack on the “War on Corruption” platform, it goes to detail the progressive censorship of my own account. Though I had hoped for a resolution, Facebook has adamantly refused to address any message I’ve sent to them. In fact, they’ve only increased the various forms of censorship to my account and my platform.

Censorship: Phase I

In the beginning, what Facebook had done was nothing more than a slight annoyance. With no explanation, not even a noted policy violation, I had found that my account had been blocked from commenting or replying to political pages. This means that I could not interact with any political figure, this immediately caught my attention. At this point and time, I was still able to comment, reply, and even post to other pages, groups, etc. At this time, I was oblivious to just how far Facebook would take this censorship.

Censorship: Phase II

After about a week of dealing with the original block, Facebook apparently decided that it was time to do additional blocks. Upon trying to post a comment to a group, which I had been able to do the previous day, I found that I had been restricted from doing so. As with the original block, no reason was given explaining why my account had been restricted. The censorship wouldn’t end here. If it did, this article wouldn’t exist. Within twenty-four hours of this new restriction, I was restricted from commenting and replying to all pages and groups. However, at this point and time, I was still able to post on the “WoC” page, though commenting and replying had now been restricted.

Censorship: Phase III

For the next few weeks, I progressively became agitated over the restriction. On top of running this media platform, I compose and sell music online. At this point and time, this had remained untouched by the nefarious goons of Facebook. However, War on Corruption had now been completely restricted from me. I could no longer post, comment, reply, or even send private messages from the platform’s page. It was, at this point that we decided to begin the process of removing WoC from Facebook completely. During this period, Facebook added yet another new restriction. Not only was I unable to post, comment, reply, or send PM’s, I now could no longer join or leave groups. Worst yet, Facebook wasn’t even finished playing this illegal form of censorship.

Censorship: Phase IV

With this, we are now up to date with the current situation. At this point, Facebook has removed my ability to post, comment, and reply from my personal profile. Furthermore, the page I have, to which I promote my side gig of music, has also been slammed by the social media giant. This means that, on two different platforms, Facebook has not only censored me, but they’ve even cut a form of my income: music. But it doesn’t end there. Out of our team of seven, five of us have been targeted in this exact same manner, all without reason or explanation. Though all of us have tried to appeal it, the results are the same. The appeal process itself has been restricted from all of us.

This means that while we have the option to appeal, should we attempt to do so it will fail to go through; Facebook will never even know that we’ve tried to fight it. As of now, our platform is being operated by two individuals of our team, the only two who have not been targeted with this illegal act. Meanwhile, I continue my search for a civil rights attorney. Not only for our team, but for the various other platforms, and individuals, targeted by Facebook.

Conclusion

With much discussion, we do have a lead into what instigated the censorship: I was critical of a specific political figure, one that Facebook supports. With their censorship, they’ve not only shown how far they will go to stop anybody who opposes their political views, they have demonstrated how far they will go to silence any journalist who speaks against those to which they support.

We aren’t writing this article to bring awareness to what is happening to our platform, we are writing this to warn other journalists, and truth seekers, of what Facebook is willing to do to silence them. We have full expectation that Facebook will shut us down. Since the time of the initial restriction, we have watched as our platform stats spiraled into oblivion. With this, we have absolutely no doubt that, much like our team, our platform is being shadow banned by the site.

During what many call the “purge,” Facebook wiped out over a dozen media platforms from their site. Among them: “Freedom Though Project,” who had well over a million followers. The habitual pattern of Facebook is to target independent media, why not? They can’t buy us off unlike the corporate giants of the media world. While Facebook continues to hold its position of being a “private” company, this is factually untrue. Facebook had ceased being a private company when they entered the public domain, the Stock Market. While this has many financial benefits for the site, it has a lot of legal disadvantages. Among them, violating constitutional rights.

Though we have no expectation of the platform surviving this, on Facebook at least, we have begun moving to other sites. Below, are links to our new locations. We hope to see you there just as we hope that Facebook will cease this unjust activity.
