Idaho internet provider blocks Facebook, Twitter amid ‘censorship’ concerns

An internet provider in Idaho confirmed it will be blocking Facebook and Twitter from its WiFi service for some customers beginning Wednesday.

According to a report by KREM 2, the T1 WiFi service provider said it decided to block Twitter and Facebook after the company received several complaints from customers regarding censorship on the platforms.

This comes after Twitter and Facebook banned President Donald Trump from their platforms due to violations of their terms of service.

In an email posted to Twitter by a customer, T1 WiFi says, “We have the past couple days been fielding calls from customers voicing the concern that they do not want these sites allowed to be displayed on their internet feed to them and that they do not want their children to go to these sites.”

The email went on to explain that there are too many customers asking for the sites to be blocked and it would be very “tiresome” and “expensive” to visit each customer that wants the sites blocked.

The email continues, “There are too many people that have called for us to do one [customer] at a time so we will be blocking [Facebook and Twitter] and any other website that may also be censoring.”

The company says that two-thirds of its customers asked for the sites to be blocked.

Initially, the company said too many customers had requested the sites be blocked, so it would block them for all customers except for those who called the company and requested access. However, the company said Monday that those who didn’t request the sites be blocked would still have access.

The email explained that the T1 WiFi company does not condone big tech companies like Facebook and Twitter censoring users, so in return, they will be blocking them from their service.

“Our company does not believe a website or social networking site has the authority to censor what you see and post and hide information from you,” the email reads. “This is why with the amount of concerns, we have made this decision to block these two websites from being accessed from our network.”

“We also don’t condone what Google, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook and Apple are doing either to Parler by trying to strong arm them into submission. Actually looks like they are trying to exterminate the competition.”

T1 WiFi’s actions could be considered censorship by violating Washington state’s Net Neutrality law.

The issue is being investigated by the attorney general’s Consumer Protection Division, according to reports.

‘Coordinated effort’ to hide Hunter Biden information: Treasury denies request for reports

The United States Treasury Department has denied Republicans’ request for reports and documents which deal with the President’s son, Hunter Biden. In a bizarre response, Treasury legislative affairs chief Jonathan Davidson sent a letter to the House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer saying they need more detail as to why the panel its seeking such “highly sensitive information.”

Apparently suspicious activity surrounding the President of the United States’ son doing business deals, foreign banking and transactions with overseas entities including China and Ukraine is not obvious enough.

Davidson’s letter did not acknowledge whether such reports on the Bidens exist, but instructed Comer that “improper disclosure” of such information can undermine the executive branch’s “conduct of law enforcement, intelligence, and national security activities.”

Comer responded that “this coordinated effort by the Biden Administration to hide information about President Biden and his family’s shady business schemes is alarming and raises many questions.”

Comer added the panel will continue to request the reports and will use “the power of the gavel to get them if needed.”

Bloomberg News reports:

Comer and other Republicans already said they have evidence that finances, credit cards, and bank accounts of Hunter and Joe Biden were commingled if not shared.

And in an interim report released in November, Republicans surmised that the Treasury Department has at least 150 SARs related to financial transactions of Biden family members.

Nonetheless, in his letter to Yellen, Comer explained, “The Committee is investigating President Biden’s knowledge of and role in these schemes to assess whether he has compromised our national security at the expense of the American people.”

Comer added the committee also “will examine drafting legislation to strengthen federal ethics laws regarding employees and their families.”
