Just Like Soviet Russia: T-Mobile Is Erasing Links to Gateway Pundit Articles if You Send Them by Text Message — MORE UPDATES…

Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Communists were known for their airbrushing. If a top official lost favor with Stalin they were eliminated and airbrushed from society as if they never existed.

Who would have ever thought this practice would come to our shores one day?

On the last day of 2021,  The Gateway Pundit and Jim Hoft were banned from Paypal without warning.  

Now, we learned the tech giants are using a frightening new method to censor and control what you are able to see, read and discuss online.

Gateway Pundit reader “Mark from Louisiana” sent us this email on Friday:

Hi. I live in Louisiana but I have a 949 area code phone from when I lived in California. When I try sending a text with your website link in it, the link does not go through to my friends and family. My sister is in the 225 area code and she can send the link to me without it being blocked. Just thought I would let you know. Thanks. Mark

We asked Mark to send us more information and this is what he sent back.

Hi Jim. In one of the screenshots you can see where my sister tried to send me your website link four times but I never got it. The other two screenshots it shows me sending a link to one of your articles, that’s the one with the picture of the fox in it. In the other screenshot from my sister it shows that she never received the link. The text message it still has the fox in it. I hope this helps. But what I realized is it’s actually just my boost T-Mobile carrier that’s blocking your links. I have a friend in the 949 area code and he was able to send it to his wife, however, I can only receive it in a group text. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks. Mark.

Here is a screengrab of the text message Mark sent to his sister.

And here is what she received. The Gateway Pundit link has been “disappeared.”

This was not an isolated case. We have received dozens of these emails this weekend.

The Gateway Pundit is one of the top 250 websites in the country in 2021. We had over 900,000,000 million page views in 2021. TGP continually offers breaking news and our reporting is second to none. As the mainstream media continues to shovel out their lies and refuses to report the truth, The Gateway Pundit continues to grow year after year. Because of this, they hate us and do EVERYTHING possible to destroy us. This weekend Paypal shut down our accounts without warning.

And now T-Mobile is disappearing our links. You cannot send our links through T-mobile. They will disappear them. Your friends will not even know that you sent them a Gateway Pundit article.

If only there was an opposition party in America to confront this madness.

We have several more examples like the one above. We will post them later.

From reader Tina:

This is very true. I just tested it. I have been a T-Mobile customer since 2004 but I will find a new carrier. Possiibly freedom phone.

From reader Scott:

I am on the Sprint network and have to get a new phone to transition to the T-Mobile network. But the phone I texted recently went on the T-Mobile network; we live in the 757 area code in Virginia. And as you can see the link I sent to the article did not go through. It should be there right before the text that did which just said Test.
From reader Melanie:
Hey, don’t know if this is anything but I was attempting to share links of a few stories you’ve posted via TEXT to my friend. None of them went through to her. So, we tried different stories they posted just fine via text. JUST Gateways story links aren’t going through.
I have T-mobile Samsung Note 10+,  my friend has Verizon and an Apple Ios phone. I ended up sending the links through Facebook Messenger and my friend got them just fine then. I am willing to contact t-mobile and inquire about why specifically gateway pundits links aren’t going through but others are.
From reader Alexander, we asked him to send us a screenshot:
Maybe this is a tip, maybe it isn’t but my wife and I have been experimenting with texting links from The Gateway Pundit after she tried sending me a link to the article about the VA nurse you guys carried. I never received the link, so we tried sending several URL links from her T-mobile phone to my Verizon phone and vice versa, and on both ends we never received the links. I tried sending the link from my Google voice number to her t-mobile phone and she did not receive but if I sent it from my google voice to my Verizon phone it would go through. We’ve now tried this with several other companies including Breitbart, Fox News, CNN, and The Wallstreet Journal, and all with no issue. We were also able to replicate this issue with 4 other friends who have T-mobile but faced no issue with friends with Verizon, ATT, and Spectrum Mobile. It looks like T-mobile may be blocking The Gateway Pundit links, at least in Los Angeles, CA.
From Matt:
I tried to share a link with my wife, my daughter, and a co-worker. Later we realized it never got sent through. We tried it again and it didn’t go through. I screenshotted the conversation and sent that and it went through. All three have iPhones. I have Samsung. We are all on Sprint/TMobile. When I put extra “w’s” into the link address it went through to my daughter. They are now censoring news links via text now. Please hit Tmobile or Apple, please!
From another reader:

This is clearly a terrifying new form of censorship of the right from providers, blocking personal communications containing information they don’t like.

I’ve attached screenshots of two sets of messages, one sent from me and another that was received by the person I was sending to. Please do not publish these images, in case they contain any personal information in the image or metadata.

You will see that any link containing “thegatewaypundit.com” is not received. The same goes for a link to any individual article.

I first discovered this when sending a link to someone else that I was expecting them to react to. I asked why they didn’t reply, and it turns out they never received the message. Testing it further, it turns out the text message service on my phone (android, t-mobile service) will not send or receive any link containing thegatewaypundit.com. The signal app does allow it, so it must be android or t-mobile.

I imagine you all are losing a lot of traffic to this censorship.

Based on the screenshot above, it seems that the word thegatewaypundit will go through but not the link.
From David:
If I share an article link from thegatewaypundit to anyone via my cellphone, it never arrives despite it saying it was sent. I even just shared simply www.thegatewaypundit.com, same thing. Had others try with their phones, same results. It looks like the cell phone companies are not allowing links of your articles, or even your page to be sent via text message.
I am with t-mobile. Samsung galaxy a32 I think. We ran an experiment at work with Apple devices on Verizon and they were doing the exact same thing. I do have a screenshot between me and my wife, she has a galaxy s21. I can send it if you want.
One reader claimed that T-mobile in Philadelphia won’t allow links from TGP to go through.
Here in Philadelphia my Tmobile phone won’t allow texts from TGP to go through and no message indicating it didn’t.
The Gateway Pundit reached out to T-mobile. We will update this post with any response we receive from the company.

Dear Mr Hoft,
Today I saw the article about T noble erasing GP’s links, I decided to test it. I sat across from my mom with her phone in hand a (541) area code sending links from Gateway Pundit to her from my (714) area NOTHING will go through!! We also tried from her phone to mine and nothing. So I tried other links National File, Big League Politics and even a Gardening site all went through instantly. This is very upsetting and I wanted you to know we will be contacting T mobile since we aren’t getting what we are paying and they have no right to do this
