Is Facebook removing voices before elections with new Two-Factor Authentication?

Apparently due to its “reach”, the warning below is what I now see from Facebook at the top of the Meanwhile, In Montana Facebook Page.

That Facebook page, which is now considered to be an “influencer”, has around 92,000 followers. Of course Facebook limits that reach to around 7% of the people who actually like and follow the page with their magical algorithms.

The telephone number they have on file for me is correct. My location is in Helena, Montana. I have requested the code now on numerous occasions. Below is the screen that pops up to enter the code that never arrives.

We all know Facebook leans far left in politics. These mysterious issues always seem to happen around elections and firearms related issues. Is Facebook now removing page owners with conservative voices before upcoming elections with new Two-Factor Authentication so they can control the political information and try to direct future elections? Or is it simply a mistake that they might fix before the August 28th deadline that they’ve imposed? Call me a nut but I’ve been blocked enough times at Facebook illegitimately that I wouldn’t put anything past them.

I’m not the only one. Mariah states that something similar happened to her husbands page which never was resolved.

Below is a screenshot of one of the support requests I’ve sent. I guess we’ll just have to see. Hopefully I’m just being paranoid and they’ll fix it.

Be sure to register here in case they finally block me for good so you don’t miss new posts. This site is the Montana alternative to Facebook. 🙂

Two Montana women asked by Border Patrol for ID for speaking Spanish in Havre [Video]

What do you think? Was this racially charged or was Agent Oneal just doing his job? Watch the video, read the article and comment below.

KTVH – GREAT FALLS – Two U.S. citizens were stopped and questioned by a U.S. Border Patrol agent early Wednesday morning for speaking Spanish at a gas station in Havre, and they caught the interaction on tape.

Ana Suda – who was born in Texas and now lives in Havre – stopped with a friend at a Town Pump store to buy milk and eggs.

They were speaking Spanish when the agent asked them for their documents.

Suda said she paid for her items, gave the agent her identification, and she started recording video of the incident in the parking lot.

When Suda asked why he wanted to see their identification, the agent said, “Ma’am, the reason I asked you for your ID is because I came in here and saw that you guys are speaking Spanish, which is very unheard of up here.”

Suda says they are still in shock that this happened.

Suda told MTN News: “My family was asking me, because my family is still in Texas, and they were asking me, how is Montana about this? I said I have never had a problem before. I say Montana is perfect. I love the people here, the people are so nice. It is nicer than other states. I cannot believe this happened.”

Suda said that the officer let them leave after about 35 minutes.

The officer identified himself as Agent O’Neal in the video, and said that his actions were not racially-motivated.

U.S. Customs & Border Protection sent the following statement to MTN News: “Although most Border Patrol work is conducted in the immediate border area, agents have broad law enforcement authorities and are not limited to a specific geography within the United States. They have the authority to question individuals, make arrests, and take and consider evidence.”
