    Exclamation The Great BlackOut continues - Amazon subsidiary drops web hosting for AR-15.com

    Amazon Partner GoDaddy Allegedly Kicks Pro-Gun Site Off Servers

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...e-off-servers/

    AWR Hawkins 11 Jan 2021

    Web hosting service and Amazon partner GoDaddy allegedly removed AR15.com from its servers, forcing the site to shift to a backup URL to say visible.

    The Washington Examiner reported that AR15.com presents itself as “the world’s largest online firearm community.” It is a place where members can get ask each other questions about guns and gun accessories, and enjoy a vibrant exchange of ideas related to the Second Amendment. But the site is now searching for a new hosting service.

    AR15 used a Facebook post to announced the situation:

    ARFCOM IS DOWN. We've been booted from GoDaddy and are looking for an alternative solution. The site will return…

    Posted by AR15.Com on Monday, January 11, 2021

    The Examiner notes that Amazon “kicked Parler off its cloud-based server” shortly after President Trump moved to that platform from Twitter and numerous conservatives moved with him. GoDaddy moved “the bulk of its infrastructure to Amazon Web Services” in 2018, and now AR15.com is seeking a new home.

    President-elect Joe Biden has plans to ban the purchase of AR-15s and any other commonly-owned semiautomatic rifles that Democrats label “assault weapons.” He made this clear during an August 6, 2019, CNN interview, in which he was asked about taking guns:

    CNN: So, to gun owners out there who say, well, a Biden administration means they’re going to come for my guns?

    BIDEN: Bingo. You’re right if you have an assault weapon.

    The dilemma now, in light of the plight of AR15.com, is whether Americans even retain the freedom to talk about AR-15s.

    I suppose the upside is that it makes the separation easier.

    Not only does this make separation easier, but this is separation.

    This is what separation looks like

    It is not full and complete separation, of course.

    In order to achieve that, much more is needed (politically, socially, economically, etc.).

    But while this is not itself sufficient, it is necessary. (And it helps at least some little bit to grease the skids for what else must follow.)

    This is exactly the sort of thing that must happen - and the sooner (and more peacefully) it happens, the better.

    It will be disruptive and difficult, to be sure. But we should not fight or oppose it. We should embrace and encourage it. After all, if separation is our aim, then why should we wish to remain in union (politically, socially, digitally, etc.) with those who despise us for one moment longer than is absolutely necessary? To what practical effect? To what end or purpose?

    Perhaps not. That is why I used the comparative "more."

    I know I haven't been around much so shine me off if you please. The people that hate us are about to drop the hammer, so we can "except the new normal" or fight it with every fiber in our being. That seems to me to be the only options, correct me if you can.

    Indeed. It will not be a peaceful process if it is to be successful for those desiring liberty. The left will not allow it.

    In baseball, it's called "running out a ground ball." The batter hits a ground ball to an infielder and is probably out. But he's not out until that fielder fields the ball, makes the throw to first, and the first baseman catches it and tags the base (or the runner). Statistically speaking, it's almost guaranteed that the batter will be out, but he runs to first anyway. Anything can happen and it sometimes does.

    Exhausting all possible peaceful remedies before resorting to force is good for one's soul. My humble opinion.

    The cultural separation is in full swing. What we need next is the economic separation, meaning: start supporting, as you're able to, locally owned businesses; conservative/libertarian/anarchist owned businesses; quit giving your money to big box retailers, as you're able to; quit giving your money to liberal/leftist owned businesses; try to avoid taxation when able to do so (think agorism, which I think will start to take off a little starting this year); reconsider your entertainment options (quit giving Hollywood money as you're able to), etc.

    Once the cultural and economic splits are in full force, it makes everything else easier. And a little sarcasm, but not sarcasm: China comes in and mops up the remains. That latter part is one of the reasons behind all of this chaos: this is part of China's rise and they need the U.S. to either be 100% malleable or fall. Both of which are happening gracefully from China's perspective.

    This is eventually going to have the opposite effect they want.

    The democrats will all cower in fear in their homes doing everything online while republicans will actually talk to each other and go places.

    I welcome it in a way.

    Yes, yes it is...and I have zero tolerance for talking heads and "leaders" on "Our" side who are out there right now harrumphing at us and telling us to stand down and be peaceful and polite, especially after agitating us for just such a thing for decades now in order to do nothing but build a grift empire based on supplements and dick pills.

    One thing that my family has done is to buy some food directly from local farms. When I order things online I order directly from the company that makes the item. Example, if I want a supplement from nutrigold. Instead of buying it on walmart.com or amazon.com I buy it from the nutrigold website.

    Jamison farms has really good lamb meat. I order directly from them. I avoid taxation as much as possible. I do not have cable TV. I refuse to give them my money. If i hear about a restaurant not enforcing mask rules or cdc BS I will go to the restaurant and tip nicely.

    Also use cash as much as you can. We have been spending a lot less at costco.

    This is a process and it takes more then just me and you. I will tell everyone this though, if you cant simply just cancel cable, then we really have little hope on this earth.

    Trouble is cable companies have monopoly. You can give the absolute minimum each month for internet service. But, they are gonna get the minimum. And they are gonna be able to buffer or do what they chose.

    I agree with that. I was talking about CABLE TV. I still have internet only which is still giving them something but I am not giving money to ABC,CBS,NBC,FOX,CNN, etc.

    Edit: Also you do not pay taxes on internet only plans. Which go to the FCC and what not.

    Gotcha. But it leaves me to wonder, why is it I only have one provider. MaBell was broken up. And now I'm in the same situation.

    Yep, and there's this as well that people should look into: https://www.farmmatch.com/

    I've never used it, but the founder was on Tom Woods a couple weeks ago.

    Farmer's Markets in the Spring/Summer are also a great tool.


    By the way - does anyone have any advice on how to convince a significant other that we don't need 90+ channels of television? I've tried just about everything that I can think of... It's been a fruitless endeavor.

    Internet and ROKU is just as good, better in my opinion.I'm not much on tv but she is and she's satisfied with that. On the plus side there hasn't been a NFL game on our screen all year.

    Our family went in together on a cow for slaughter this year, not really any cheaper than me buying from the mark down bins but better meat and it goes to a local small grower.

    Word comes to me today that RPF is on the same network servers as AR.15
    @Brian4Liberty can you confirm that?

    If so you should reach out and arrange alternate communications with people you do not wish to lose touch with as may only be a matter of time before RPF goes dark as well.

    Don’t know about RPF servers. If people have a valid email address on their member account here, then emails can always be sent out if the website is down for some reason.

    Probably wouldn't be a good idea to publicly share alternatives, as they might be targeted too.
