Websites We Monitor
Somewhere out there in the cacophony of information and disinformation lies the truth. It is up to each of us to ferret it out. Our mainstream media is no longer to be trusted as the disseminator of facts. This requires research, often from multiple sources (some of them not based in the United States either).
We monitor these websites either on a daily or weekly basis, depending upon need. Some are more trusted than others. In some cases, you have to take the information with a grain of salt.
Verification of facts takes work beyond visiting compromised and politicized sites like Snopes and PolitiFact.
These sites are an amazing amalgam of information. There is so much truth to learn about our past, and we must face it if we are to ensure we do not repeat our behavior. We urge everyone to visit these sites.
WikiLeaks is the single most critical truth-telling website in American history. Founded in 2006, it has won many awards and has never had to retract one ounce of what has been published. Julian Assange is the greatest publisher of our time.
Anonymous is a decentralized international hacktivist group that is widely known for its various DDOS cyber attacks against several governments, government institutions & government agencies, corporations, and the Church of Scientology.
Although conservative-leaning, Judicial Watch is one of our favorite websites. It was, after all, Judicial Watch that first broke the Clinton email story. They have many documents available on their site because they make use of the Freedom of Information Act.

World Beyond War
If Americans Knew
World BEYOND War is a global nonviolent movement to end war and establish a just and sustainable peace. We strive to replace a culture of war with one of peace in which nonviolent means of conflict resolution take the place of bloodshed.
St. Pete For Peace is, hands down, my favorite antiwar website. They do an amazing job holding polticians accountable. When people post about how wonderful Obama was, I simply go to my St. Pete link on the Obama years and I don't even have to do any work. It has been done.
If Americans Knew is a nonprofit organization that focuses on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the foreign policy of the United States regarding the Middle East, offering analysis of American media coverage of these issues. Another of those indispensible websites.

Ron Paul Institute
I keep up with the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity for perspective. Although it may not be a belief shared by many people, I think its important that all angles be inspected. This website is worth an occasional visit, or get on their mail list and get imporant notices.
Antiwar.com is devoted to the cause of non-interventionism and is read by libertarians, pacifists, leftists, "greens," and independents alike, as well as many on the Right who agree with our opposition to imperialism. Our initial project was to fight against intervention in the Balkans under the Clinton presidency.
