In a breathtaking move, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security temporarily took control of various websites early Wednesday morning to advert an “unspecified, imminent threat to the nation.”
Entire websites, including CameraFRAUD.com, were unavailable for hours until inner-party government officials manually approved their content. A temporary “internet free speech zone” permit was granted late this afternoon to allow our return to the web.
