No More Masks!

Texas and Mississippi have joined Florida in re-opening their states.

This happens when “we the people” choose to take back our lives.

Stop wearing masks and demand our county and city agencies remove all restrictions.

  • Masks do not help and may actually increase risk
  • Mask rules are creating division
  • Science does not support mask rules

Call Spoofing

I received several calls feom local numbers at the crack of dawn this morning from people who were upset because someone called them from my number.

However – I did not call them.

According to the FCC, this is only illegal if the callers intent is to “defraud, harm, or wrongfully obtain anything of value” from the call recipient. In these cases, people found guilty of call spoofing can be fined up to $10,000 per call. Unfortunately, options to fix this problem are limited:

  • Call your phone provider and change your number
  • Ride it out – scammers only use a number for a limited time to avoid being traced
  • Record a voicemail stating:  “If you got a call from this number, please understand that telemarketers or scammers are using my number without my permission. For your own security, do not engage with them and please block this number.”
  • Report spoofing calls to local law enforcement and/or file a complaint with the FCC – Consumer Complaint Center

Recent FCC Action The Commission adopted rules that will require originating and terminating voice service providers to implement the STIR/SHAKEN caller ID authentication framework in the IP portions of their networks, and proposes additional measures. Learn moreabout Recent FCC Action

If you receive a call from an unknown number:

  • Do not answer
  • If you do answer and don’t know the caller, hang up
  • If the caller asks you to press a button, hang up – do not press anything
  • Never assume a call is legitimate and never give personal information to someone who has called you – hang up and call them back on a number you can verify on the company’s bill or website
  • BE SUSPICIOUS! Especially if they sound threatening or too good to be true!
  • Block all numbers not in your contacts list – most cell phone providers have built in technology to do that, or you can download an app
  • You can also silence unknown numbers – this sends callers not in your contacts list straight to voicemail. Check your voicemail frequently to make sure you don’t have legitimate missed calls.

President Trump at CPAC

ICYMI – the first third is hard to listen to – he picks up the pace for the last 2/3.

I’m convinced this is our 2021 State of the Union address.

Listen for the clues! 3rd win (1st was as 45, 2 & 3 as 19?). Take back the House and then the Presidency (eliminate a bunch of House reps – take the Speaker position and then remove Biden & Harris?). I don’t know – the under cover op is frustrating because we don’t get to know.

Control what you can. Get involved locally – take back your city / county – while we wait.
