Over 100 days since the Capitol riots, the Federal Bureau of Investigation enforced a search warrant on an Alaskan in an alleged attempt to recover Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s laptop. But, they reportedly knocked down the wrong door.
Marilyn and Paul Hueper woke up the morning of April 28th to federal agents swarming their home. An FBI spokesperson confirmed to The National Pulse a “court-authorized law-enforcement activity” at their home.
“12 agents handcuffed me and Paul,” Hueper wrote in a Facebook post. “Interrogated us, searched the house, and left with my phones and laptops.”
Hueper was in the nation’s capital on Jan. 6th but says she only rallied there to listen to former President Trump speak. But she swears she never stormed the Capitol, let alone stole equipment from government offices.
“Apparently, I have a doppelganger… who was part of the Capitol breach, but that was ID’d as me,” Hueper said. She also posted side-by-side pictures of the two. Her doppelganger’s photo captured while she was inside the Capitol.
She originally wrote the post to let her friends know that, since the FBI took her phone, she had a new number. However she also called for attention to the alleged improper investigation.
“I’m posting this because I believe that the more regular people who know what’s going on, the better for all of us,” Heuper wrote. “My story is out there for all of you to know, and hold the FEDS accountable. I’m not who they’re looking for, but maybe I’m becoming too outspoken and they’d just as soon use this as opportunity to intimidate and silence my voice.”

Facebook, Instagram Employees ‘Censor or Delete’ Protests against Iran
Former and current Facebook and Instagram employees are shedding light onto the “fact checkers” that are censoring vital content such as protests against Iran. “According to a report by BBC Persian, these employees admitted that at all levels of the company, the Iran regime’s influence has infiltrated, leaving biased and pro-regime content monitors to restrict, censor or delete posts about the current protests in Iran” reports The Foreign Desk.
Similar to censorship at the companies in the United States and elsewhere, the behavior is its own political movement. “The actions by these Iranian employees to remove images of the demonstrations in Iran and associated hashtags helps reinforce the Islamic Republic’s argument that the protests are not so widespread.”
According to one of the former employees who had his identity hidden for security purposes, told the BBC Persian in an interview from Germany, that the workers travel back and forth between Europe and Iran. “About 90 percent” of the decision making on censorship is done by these “fact checkers.”
“These are individuals who single-handedly take posts down. According to the source, employees are not allowed to have their personal cellular devices with them at their workstations, so these individuals go to the break room to report a post from their personal phones and then come back to their workstations and address the ‘complaint’ they just created.”
Instagram removed the below post from the @FarashgardFdn becase people chanted “down with Khamenei”.

The Foreign Desk adds:
In 2019 TELUS International became the third-party company contracted with Instagram and Facebook to become their fact checkers and address complaints from users reporting posts for violent, hateful, or threatening material.
A second source, a former TELUS employee, said approximately 400-500 Iranians work at the company in Germany, a country that is known to have diplomatic and bilateral relations with the Islamic Republic.
The Islamic Republic has learned from the Green Revolution of 2009 to infiltrate Western social media outlets and their parent companies to control the narrative and prevent the international community from siding with anti-regime demonstrators.
