If you are picking up this publication for the first time and wondering what we are all about, the answer is freedom. We stand behind the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the concept of 1776 expanding worldwide – the idea of liberty all over the planet.
We are a firewall standing between liberty and the tyranny of a corporatist and monopolist system that is diabolically opposed to freedom and the free market, especially when it comes to media and the unrestricted flow of information.
We oppose wireless NSA wiretapping and the secret arrest of Americans under the NDAA. We oppose endless and criminal proxy wars carried out in our names. We oppose the persecution of people for religious or cultural reasons.
We are not left or right. We are constitutionalists. Because Obama is currently the titular head of the global empire and crime syndicate, a lot of this publication will be about his actions. In the past, we were critical of Bush. We will also examine Romney and others who may replace Obama and his administration.

Digital and networked technology make it easy for corporate control freaks to track down dissidents, delete their words and even kill audio files of their voices, as they have done with my voice on YouTube. Corporations have gone so far as to claim copyright on voices, including that of Optimus Prime, a character from the Transformers franchise. That’s right – You Tube is now adhering to third party claims of ownership – many of them erroneous – to people’s own voices, and using this as a pretext to delete content – representing a new frontier of censorship via copyright.
Automated software bots are now being used to preemptively censor content with no due process whatsoever.
Kindle recently demonstrated how it is possible to remove content when it invaded privately owned devices without permission or warning and deleted ebooks. As Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak recently warned, the very idea of cloud computing poses a threat to the existence of digital material and the idea of individual ownership. The director of the CIA has admitted that the Internet is a surveillance tool that even gives “smart
