The Father of Lies

"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." John 8:44


We have entered a new era, where business, politics, and media are combining more forcefully than ever before to bring about an Orwellian world of falsehood presented as unarguable truth.

Fortunately, the internet still exists as an archive, a library of evidence, so that the flip-flops of politicians, the shoddy work of journalists, and the suppression of truth by big business can be countered.

Many bloggers, experts in their field, or merely dedicated hobbyists, are doing the job the fourth estate refuses to do or is unable to do. The foreign press, not dependent on getting "access" to powerful people, is often more truthful about conditions in the US than our own newspapers and TV.

I will attempt to highlight some of the great work of those bloggers and journalists here on this blog, so that readers might combat the Universe of Lies with the best reality-based information available.
