Facebook and several other related social media sites to which modern society has become addicted left users in the lurch on the Super Tuesday primary election day in the United States by going dark.

A report at Metro in the United Kingdom confirmed, “Facebook and Instagram have suffered massive outages, leaving potentially millions of users unable to access the popular social media platforms. The issue appears to be global.”

The report said Threads, Instagram’s rival platform to X, and Facebook Messenger were having issues and WhatsApp, also owned by Meta, appeared to sustain a “small outage.”

Reports from users about system failures reached into the millions.

One observer pointed out the “coincidence” that the problems arrived on “Super Tuesday,” and suggested, “Practice run for November?”

Metro reported,”Within half an hour of the issues first appearing on Down Detector, at around 3pm, the number of reports had passed 90,000 for Facebook, and 15,000 for Instagram. At its peak, more than 250,000 UK Facebook users reported issues, while in the US more than half a million users reported the outage.

User Ann Autumn wrote: “‘My hands are shaking so much right now I can barely type. And my heart is pounding. I couldn’t get into Facebook and I was sure that my account was hacked. But Twitter peeps are confirming the #facebookdown situation. #instagramdown as well. So relieved that it’s not just me.”

The report said failures were documented in Australia, the U.S., Brazil, India, China, Europe and Guatemala, so far.

Online commenters pointed out:

“They’re showing us what they can do in real-time.”

“Take down internet service in red areas on Nov. 5 for machines they swore up and down had no way to connect to the internet.”

“Super strange, isn’t it? No way for word to get out about polling location concerns – except for X.”

“Everything is intentional.”

“Someone flipped the wrong switch and instead of getting into the Dominion system, they got Meta ”

A report in the Daily Mail said affected were Facebook, Messenger and Instagram “worldwide.”

“A source inside Facebook told DailyMail.com that the company’s internal systems were also down, which may have led to Tuesday’s outage.”

Reports said users were being kicked out of their accounts and unable to log on – even using the correct credentials.

Elon Musk, on X, said, “If you’re reading this post, it’s because our servers are working.”

WND SPECIAL REPORT – “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS”: From the Biden administration’s enthusiastic support for amputating body parts of troubled children, to its obsession with bringing as many millions of illegal aliens, terrorists and Chinese soldiers as possible into America, it is increasingly clear that many of this nation’s current leaders are, to put it plainly, stark raving mad.

Indeed, psychiatric experts are finally documenting how the symptom profiles of scary conditions like “Borderline Personality Disorder” and “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” PERFECTLY MATCH today’s top leaders.

One groundbreaking peer-reviewed study published in 2023 documents how left-wing extremism is closely associated with “psychopathic tendencies.” Likewise, retired psychiatrist Brad Lyles, M.D., explains how “one way of understanding the increasingly outlandish beliefs and behaviors of the left is through the lens of Borderline Personality Disorder.” And one of America’s top forensic psychiatrists, Lyle Rossiter, M.D., described Barack Obama’s mental state as “Malignant Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Consider a typical description of sociopathy: “Sociopaths are often well-liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” Remind you of anyone?

From Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to their presidential Cabinet – including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra – all of these people “have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly.”

But it’s not just Democrat leaders. Multiple surveys now show how rank-and-file Democrats are TWICE as likely to be diagnosed with a mental disorder as Republicans – from depression to bipolar disorder to schizophrenia to narcissistic personality disorder. All this and much more is stunningly laid out in the March edition of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS.” Don’t miss it – you will see the whole political-cultural-spiritual war raging in the U.S.A. in a whole new light.
