Need a safe place for these

Wow. Has it really been this long since I have been here?  That's inexcusable.

But I need a safe place for some links to debunk the site Neon Nettle. So here we go.

Topic: Laura Loomer

Laura Loomer paid some people to break into Pelosi's home.  There is no evidence they were asylum seekers or even undocumented.
So they were not asylum seekers but part of a publicity stunt.

She was banned from Uber and Lyft.

  1. Best Way to Get Your Ex Lover Back Fast Even If Your Situation Seems Hopeless!. I just got my husband back through the help of genuine love spell caster PRIEST OSAS.

    Hello respective viewers, I'm lawrence foreign  from Alabama, USA. My husband left me for another woman after 13 years of marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second child. I wanted him back. I did everything within my power to bring him back home, but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him and also for the sake of our child and unborn baby. I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to a very close friend of mine and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a love spell to bring him back, i have never done this before because I don't believe in things like this, but I had no choice than to give it a try. I took out time to search more about spell casters then I came across an article where a lot of people talked about this particular spell caster called PRIEST OSAS who has helped a lot of them save their broken marriages and relationships. I was so amazed with the good reviews I saw about him so I got the courage to place a contact through to him. I messaged PRIEST OSAS, and told him my whole situation and he assured me there was no problem and that everything was gonna be okay before 48 hours. He casted the spell and surprisingly 48 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened. He said he was on his way home and he wanted me to accept him back home. He said he loved and missed me so much. I was so happy, surprisingly a few mins later he arrived and we were both happy and started to live together again. That was how we started living together happily again. Thanks to PRIEST OSAS . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact PRIEST OSAS for help now.. Here is his contact.. Email him @ Unsurpassed.solution@gmail.com Or add him up on Whatsapp @ +2348151243832 https://www.facebook.com/unsurpassed.solution
