Facebook bans pro-Trump pages critical of Mark Zuckerberg

 Facebook has permanently deleted two popular pro-Trump Facebook pages over the Easter holiday weekend after the creator spoke out against Mark Zuckerberg’s anti-Conservative bias.  God Emperor Trump (GET) and God Emperor Trump II, which had 333,000 and 75,000 followers respectively, were purged following the creator’s appearance on the Milo Yiannopoulos podcast.

Newswars.com reports: After working anonymously behind the scenes for over two years, Tom Pappert, founder of both pages, took his identity public during a interview with Milo Yiannopoulos in which Milo warned that Facebook would likely penalize both of them for speaking poorly about the social media platform and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

“I know that Facebook watches this show because they punish me every time I’ve been mean about them,” Yiannopoulos cautioned during the interview. “Something happens, and we get a warning.”

Shortly after the broadcast, all admins of GET were removed, and control of GET was mysteriously turned over to Pakistani hackers who had previously commandeered the page for a short time in January, as Infowars reported, but hours later, the page was completely deleted from Facebook.

An FBI investigation was opened into the original hacking incident, and these latest developments have prompted Pappert’s legal counsel to advise him to file copyright claims with Facebook and also contact the Attorney General of Kansas, where Pappert resides.

Pappert and GET’s admins resorted to using their backup page to spread the word about GET’s deletion, but GET II was permanently unpublished in a clearly intentional targeting by Facebook.

“We are mainstream conservative teens and 20-somethings who have been working on these pages since December of 2015,” Pappert says. “We formed a company in 2017. And now Facebook has swept it out from under us, without any way to appeal their decision.”

“With no way to contact Facebook, and the livelihood of several different people threatened, we are shocked and without many options.”

This is not the first time Facebook has attempted to remove GET and Pappert from the platform, but it is the most aggressive – and potentially final – drop of the censorship hammer. A groundswell of support from social media users and coverage by alternative press have sufficed to rescue the page in the past.

Many believe Facebook has begun its swansong dive, as the shocking extent to which the privacy of its users is compromised comes to light.

“Since hitting its peak on Feb. 2, Facebook has lost an astonishing $100 billion in market capitalization,” reported the New York Times last week. “Its stock was trading midweek at close to $153 a share, a decline of nearly 22 percent.”

GOP Activist Investigating Hillary Clinton’s Lost Emails
Found Dead — Apparent Suicide By Black Plastic Bag Republican activist Peter Smith was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 in Rochester, Minnesota.

The hotel staff found Smith with a black plastic bag on his head. He was trying to obtain Hillary Clinton’s lost emails.

UPDATE: Mueller and Congressional investigators have interviewed Smith’s acquaintances several times. Our sources say there is much more to this story.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

Peter W. Smith, a Republican political activist and financier from Chicago who mounted an effort to obtain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers, died on May 14 after asphyxiating himself in a hotel room in Rochester, Minn., according to local authorities. He was 81 years old.

Mr. Smith’s body was found by a hotel clerk in the Aspen Suites hotel, located across the street from the Mayo Clinic, according to a Rochester Police Department report. An associate of Mr. Smith said that he had recently visited the clinic. A representative for the facility wouldn’t confirm if Mr. Smith was a patient.

Mr. Smith died about 10 days after an interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he recounted his attempts to acquire what he believed were thousands of emails stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. He implied that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then serving as the senior national security adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, was aware of his efforts…

…The police report said Mr. Smith was found by a hotel clerk with a plastic bag around his head attached tightly with black rubber bands. Mr. Smith “left documentation on why he committed suicide, medical records, his written obituary, and life insurance” on a table in his room, the report said.


Massachusetts Man Arrested After Trying To Hire
A Hit Man On Twitter To Kill ICE Agents For $500

A 33-year-old lefty from Cambridge, Massachusetts named Brandon Ziobrowski was arrested Thursday after offering anyone on Twitter $500 to kill ICE agents.

Ziobrowski also expressed his desire to slit John McCain’s throat in several tweets.

FOX News reported:

A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.

“The agents and officers out there enforcing federal laws are doing their job, plain and simple,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference. “There is a difference between public debate and putting others in fear of their lives.”

Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.

On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”

The Justice Department released a statement on the arrest of Ziobrowski:
