US Cuts Off Telephone Line To Russian Consulate In New York Day Before Inauguration

US Cuts Off Telephone Line To Russian Consulate In New York Day Before Inauguration

Russian state-run news agency RIA is reporting that the US has switched off to telephone line to Russia’s consulate in New York.

RIA cited officials with the Russian diplomatic mission, who further said there’s been no connection for more than a day.

However, RIA gave no further details. Speculation abounds given the timing of the apparent phone switch off, coming a mere day before Joe Biden’s inauguration.

It also comes amid some Democratic leaders as well as the mainstream media actually attempting to tie the Capitol Hill riot of January 6 somehow to Russian intelligence and social media ‘influence ops’.

In a follow-up to RIA’s initial reporting, Russia’s Sputnik confirmed the following:

The Russian Consulate-General in New York has been completely cut off city telephone lines by the American authorities since 18 January, the diplomatic mission in the city has stated via its official Twitter account. The consulate added that it is occasionally also encountering issues with Internet connectivity.

A source at the Russian mission in New York says US authorities are citing technical issues as the reason for the cut-off. According to the source, however, a two-day delay in the resumption of telephone services is “unheard of”. The diplomatic mission in the city has several telephone lines connected and all of them went dead at the same time, the source adds.

Meanwhile in terms of the strangeness of the timing, there’s this bizarre continuing saga:

Sputnik notes further, however, that “This is not the first time the Trump administration takes actions against Russian diplomatic missions in the US. Back in 2017, Washington decided to close the Russian Consulate-General in San Francisco in response to the expulsion of American diplomats from Russia.”

Tragic! Federal Government Bans Conservative Laura Loomer from Owning Guns

Laura Loomer was right.

In October former Florida Republican congressional candidate Laura Loomer slammed Republican party leadership for ignoring tech censorship of conservatives.

Loomer, perhaps the most censored woman in the world, won her primary while being banned from every major social media platform. Her campaign is also the only one banned from running ads on Facebook.

She has been kicked off Twitter, Facebook, Uber, Lyft, PayPal, GoFundMe, and other platforms for her fierce and controversial criticism of Islam.

In a previous post on Parler, before it was targeted and taken down, Loomer asked “why is the GOP more concerned about the New York Post being denied access to Twitter and Facebook than they are about the fact that Republican candidates for Congress are being denied account access in an election year?”

And now this…
Laura Loomer found out recently she was banned from owning a gun. Despite the fact that she faces constant death threats – she cannot own or possess a firearm for her own personal protection. Her 2nd Amendment right has been BANNED.

Laura writes:

While I have NEVER been convicted of a felony, domestic violence, and I’ve never been adjudicated mentally unfit by a judge, my name was placed in the Federal National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and I have been prohibited from ever owning or even touching a firearm.

This is a travesty of justice. And it proves, once again, that the modern-day Republican Party is not capable of taking on the Marxists at the gate.

Conservatives should have paid more attention to the Laura Loomer story. Now it has escalated ten-fold.
