Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today.

The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
