Open Letter To Mark Zuckerberg Why Is It One Can’t Directly Contact Someone To Dispute Facebook Account Being Restricted?

Now first of all let me make it clear that I do not have a problem with owning up to doing something that I did but I have a problem with not being able to dispute something that I feel is questionable.

My account has been restricted for 30 Days beginning January 14 and it says because of multiple posts from the last year I didn’t follow our standards.

January 14 I do not see the post being harassing nor threatening.

January 6 my account was restricted for 3 days because I shared somebody else post but my post was put back on on January 8 because it was said Facebook got it wrong.

The rest of the restrictions to me were not harassing nor threatening and nobody that read them said to me that they felt that they were not harassing and threatening also.

I am questioning what method is Facebook using to restrict my account. Is it a filter on Facebook or is it because I am being reported by some haters or what? I do know that a hater told me one time they had reported me about a post that I had shared one time.

I along with some others see many posts that we feel are harassing and threatening all the time but they are not removed and that makes me think that my account is being restricted because someone may be reporting my posts.

I have 4999 followers and I try to remove all Fake accounts and accounts that are no longer active. I have folk sending me Friend Request all the time however as I stated I try to make sure they are not fake accounts.

I will be alright without being able to post or comment on Facebook but I use Facebook to be educated and to educate as it relates to local, state and national politics. I have some faithful followers of different races that look for me to post about current happenings and I am their source of information that they can trust in. They say they know I am going to do my homework. That is because, “I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!” I am for justice no matter who it is for or against!”

I blog and share my blogs on Facebook. Facebook used to allow me to set up my blog so that when I post to my blog it automatically posted on Facebook but Facebook stopped that feature around 2 years ago so now I have to manually do it.

Mr. Zuckerberg I question the Facebook Community Standards when it is does not give a precise and clear reason to why my account is being constantly restricted.

Thanking you in advance for an expedient reply.

Trump to leave Washington on morning of Biden’s inauguration

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump will leave Washington next Wednesday morning, just before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, to begin his post-presidential life in Florida.

He will be sent off with a departure ceremony at Joint Base Andrews, according to a person familiar with the planning who spoke on condition of anonymity because Trump’s plans have not been formally announced. Officials are considering an elaborate event that would have the feel of a state visit, with a red carpet, color guard, military band and 21-gun salute all being discussed. (Read more)

Biden To Unveil $1.9 Trillion COVID-19 Relief Plan, Including $1,400 Stimulus Checks

President-elect Joe Biden will outline his plans for economic relief from the coronavirus crisis on Thursday, citing the need for a more robust vaccination plan as well as for additional direct payments to American families to help recover the U.S. economy. His plan, called the American Rescue Plan, is expected to cost $1.9 trillion.

The package includes $1,400 direct stimulus checks, which would supplement the $600 checks Congress passed late last year. Biden also proposes an additional $160 billion for a national vaccine program, including $20 billion for distribution, and an additional $50 billion for expanded testing.

The plan also calls on Congress to invest $170 billion in K-12 schools and higher education, including $130 billion for schools to safely reopen. He proposes raising the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour, as well as providing billions for child care assistance, federal nutrition programs, rental assistance and tribal governments’ pandemic response. The package also includes $350 billion in emergency funding for state and local governments. (Read more)

Biden: Cancel Student Loans Immediately

Joe Biden is calling on Congress to cancel $10,000 of student loans immediately.

Here’s what you need to know.

Student Loans

Biden is following through on a campaign proposal to cancel $10,000 of student loans. The president-elect wants Congress to cancel student loan debt immediately.

“Immediate $10,000 forgiveness of student loans,” Biden said. “They’re having to make choices between paying their student loan and paying the rent…It should be done immediately.”

Cancel Student Loans in Congress

Importantly, Biden is calling on Congress to act on student loan forgiveness. As a former U.S. senator from Delaware, Biden knows well that Congress has authority to decide federal spending, which includes student loans and student loan forgiveness. As such, Biden is deferring to Congress to pass relevant legislation on student loans, rather than act unilaterally as president. (Read more)

Council OKs transfer of Confederate monument

The Political Agitator’s response: This is good now this is behind the city. Some folk said the monument was not bothering anybody. Well some folk have been sick of having to look at the monument being on public display featuring half trues. It is past time that the monument is being moved to a location that is not public property inside the city. Now the healing process can begin.

The City Council on Monday evening quickly approved transferring possession of the since-taken-down Confederate monument to the local Sons of Confederate Veterans and the local United Daughters of the Confederacy.

Councilman Andre Knight said “so moved” in making a motion just before Mayor Sandy Roberson completed reading aloud the action recommended by City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney.

Councilman Richard Joyner seconded Knight’s motion and the vote was unanimous.

A memorandum from Small-Toney to Roberson and the council said the Robert Henry Ricks Camp 75 of the state Sons of Confederate Veterans and the Bethel Heroes 636 state division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy asked the city to release the monument to their care and custody so they may preserve the monument at a location in Nash County.

The memorandum said the agreement with the city would call for transferring all rights and the title and interest to the SCV Camp 75 and the UDC Bethel Heroes on the condition they transport the monument to and re-erect the monument at the new site. (Read more)

Tarboro monument given to Fort Branch

The Political Agitator’s response: I am glad to see the Tarboro City Council come to an agreement on what to do with the monument. Ironically the President of Fort Branch just happens to live in Tarboro. This worked out good. Now this is behind the Town, the longtime healing can begin. Just because some said the monument won’t bothering nobody, well it was not but the mentality that comes from those who promoted half-trues as it related to the monument on public display is where the problem has been for years. Black folk have had an issue with the monument for years.

Confederate monument has a new home.

The Tarboro Town Council voted unanimously Monday to place ownership of the monument, dedicated on the Town Common on Oct. 29, 1904, and removed on Sept. 5 amid nationwide civil unrest, in the hands of the Fort Branch Historical Society.

Fort Branch was one of three proposals submitted to the council but the only one considered as Mayor Pro Tem Othar Woodard, attending the meeting via telephone, quickly made the motion to award possession of the monument to the 501(c)3 organization, which supports the Fort Branch Confederate Earthen Fort Civil War Site.

It was Woodard who made the motion to remove the monument from the Town Common.

Fort Branch overlooks the Roanoke River and is located two miles below Hamilton and 60 miles upriver from Plymouth. It is about a 35-minute drive east of Tarboro.

In his written proposal to the council, Fort Branch Historical Society President Jimmy Braswell, who lives in Tarboro, wrote that his organization is focused on historical and archaeological preservation of Fort Branch. (Read more)

City vows to take action on Suddenlink complaints

The Political Agitator’s Response: It is sad folk are paying good money for internet but having issues with the service. This appears to not just a be a Rocky Mount issue but also in the Twin Counties Tarboro NC.

The City Council is going to come up with a plan of action in response to complaints about poor local service by the cable and internet giant Suddenlink.

Councilman Andre Knight had the subject of Suddenlink added to Monday evening’s council regular meeting agenda.

After the item was brought up near the end of the meeting, Councilman Reuben Blackwell said that this has been a persisting issue for him for a number of years.

“And it’s getting worse,” Blackwell said. “I don’t know what’s up with the current Suddenlink management, but their team seems to not be responsive at all to customer concerns. People are having to wait for weeks for service.”

Blackwell is the president and CEO of the Opportunities Industrialization Center, which seeks to help provide residents with employment training and health care.

“We’ve had several issues at OIC with people being inconsistent at Suddenlink about coming out and servicing, not taking responsibility for things that they did, having service interrupted and dropped, according to whoever is around using devices,” he said.

Blackwell said he has received a number of calls and complaints about Suddenlink, but he also made clear that he would like to hear other stories to get a complete picture of what is wrong.

Blackwell said clearly his point is that people are paying a lot of money for service and, . . . (Read more)

Council scrutinizes vacancies on police force

The Political Agitator’s response: Sources have shared that there has been many officers in the Rocky Mount Police Department that has not be pleased with the leadership within the police department for several years now and that has caused low morale. What Rocky Mount need is a strong Police Chief to come in and bring some stability and strong leadership/structural. I find it interesting to hear about how some of the officers are not pleased with not being lead to police Rocky Mount. Sources say that there is some type of misinformation and teamwork when it comes to working with the Nash County Sheriff Office Keith Stone and Edgecombe County Sheriff Office Cleveland Clee Atkinson. I posted some concerns earlier before seeing this article. I have come to the conclusion from what I have heard, seen and questioned, is that the Rocky Mount Police, Nash County and Edgecombe County need to meet and see how they can work together because it is past time to see a better working relationship among the 3 LEAs. Some things I can see such as when I see reports in the newspaper, on the Nash County Media and Edgecombe County Media Pages and I can see who are doing things within the city limits that I strongly feel is a Rocky Mount Police issue but it be the Sheriff’s Offices leading the cause.

City Councilman Lige Daughtridge during a council work session asked interim police Chief Charles Williams where the city stands regarding the number of vacancies in the police department.

Williams said there are about 20 right now and what followed his response were more questions and a discussion.

Daughtridge wanted to know whether the number is consistent throughout the year or whether there has been an increase in vacancies.

Williams told Daughtridge he would have to do additional research and would be glad to provide more specific information later, but he said the number is what the police department is seeing in terms of a common trend in law enforcement.

Daughtridge asked the questions after Williams, as part of the council’s work session on Monday, provided the council with a report about crime in December. (Read more)

NEWS BLACK FEMALE SECURITY GUARD TERMINATED AFTER PUNCHING TRUMP SUPPORTER IN VIRAL VIDEO

Ashanti Smith

The Political Agitator’s response: It is a damn shame that it has come to this.

The night before Donald Trump supporters started a riot while storming the U.S Capitol last week, a Black security guard says she punched a White Trump supporter in self-defense. Based on that incident, she said she has been fired from her security job and faces criminal charges.

According to Atlanta Black Star, Washington, D.C. resident Ashanti Smith, 28, is seen in a viral video clip punching the white woman, who was identified as Therese Duke. Duke’s 18-year-old daughter then took to social media to publicly shame her mother

Smith started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $85,000 for her legal defense. She has, so far, raised over . . . (Read more)

These are the 10 GOP members who voted to impeach Trump

The Political Agitator’s response: It is a damn shame that non of the GOP members from NC voted for the impeachment. However anybody be it GOP and/or Democrat that do not support the impeachment, they need to go home. It is no doubt that Trump incited insurrection and now all 50 Capitol buildings in these United States will get National Guard and other security protection from now til a couple of days after the Inauguration. All because of the Trump Rally on Wednesday January 6, 2021 and then his gang members marching down to the Capitol all hell broke loose, a female got shot, 3 others died from medical emergencies, 1 police officer died from injuries from the gang and then another officer committed suicide after being among the gang members. Damn Trump sent the gang members to the Capitol but said they were going to march to the Capitol. Oh but their gang leader Trump didn’t go to the Capitol he went to the White House. But the sad part the gang members don’t even get it that he do not give damn about them nor anyone. On top of all of this it ain’t like he could have done more as it relates to the COVID-19. Trump do not deserve to keep all of the benefits that a President receives after leaving the White House.

The House just voted to impeach President Trump for a second time for his role in last week’s deadly Capitol riot.

Ten Republicans joined their Democratic colleagues in voting in favor of the impeachment resolution.

They are:

  1. Rep. Dan Newhouse of Washington
  2. Rep. John Katko of New York
  3. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington
  4. Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois
  5. Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan
  6. Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming
  7. Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan
  8. Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio
  9. Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina
  10. Rep. David Valadao of California

What comes next: The next steps in the process are a little unclear. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell won’t agree to bring the Senate back early, according to Republican sources, and he communicated that to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer today.

That means a Senate trial won’t happen now until after Trump has left office and would most likely bleed into the early days of the Biden presidency, and when Democrats will control the Senate.

Here’s how each member in the House voted on Trump’s second impeachment.
