Guest Post by Hammer’s Thor Free Speech On Your Own Terms… originally published at Hammers Thor Ingelligentsia, a TOR-ONLY website. The party of tolerance has made it very clear that they intend to deplatform, censor and silence conservatives. If we don’t act proactively, eventually they will succeed. We believed that they would not take down President Trump with a stolen election, and they have. We believed that justice would be served, and that the deep state, and everything it represents, would finally, FINALLY pay for their crimes against the American people, face the music for their treachery, and be held accountable for their treason.
We believed it. Many Americans believed it. But evidently not enough. Now, those in power, along with those who have come back into power, will do everything possible to silence dissent. This is what communists do. This is what communism is.
So, you already know this. Everyone knows this. Now it is time to push forward with alternatives, since the kingmakers will not permit us to speak against them on their platforms. This is fine. In fact, this is actually excellent, because it removes the shackles of our own ignorance and allows us to learn how to circumvent their rule and live free. That is what we’re going to learn today.
Your computer is a very powerful weapon of information against those who seek to silence us. Now it’s time to learn how to use it, by creating a TOR server setup at home. This will be a tutorial on how to set up your own hidden-service website/blog, that cannot be taken down by your web host, because YOU are the web host. Your domain name cannot be seized by powerful government forces because it is not registered with ICANN.
This is what is known as a dark web website, accessible through the TOR Browser network. Even tracing the signal to your computer will be very, very difficult, and you are going to keep a backup of it, to be installed elsewhere, in case they somehow do trace it back to your computer. We will detail the steps to do this, and if you follow them correctly (don’t worry, it’s so easy a caveman can do it) you will have your website up in a matter of a couple of hours.
Even if you’ve never built a web page before, you will be able to do this, and as you create it, refine it, and hone your skills, you will also be speaking your mind, sharing your ideas, and building a community of like-minded individuals working together, in a decentralized fashion, to bring the truth, and freedom, to everyone.
News covering the most important issues of this time, including political persecution, is linked below and organized by subject areas. You’ll see that the balance of coverage will adjust with the unfolding of events and changing conditions through the days, weeks, and months ahead. Our goal is to keep our readers informed and connected with the media in ways that help everyone to build a bigger and more complete picture of the world in which we’re living – and in so doing, to encourage lifestyles dedicated to awareness, self-sufficiency, and preparedness.
We hope you’ll share – in every good way – with others. Do this with dignity, respect, and courtesy. Make places for differences in viewpoint, and individual perspective. Learn to listen, and practice this skill daily. Life is not a one-size-fits-all experience, and each of us can learn from those whose journeys have been different from our own. Stand on the right side of history. Do so with confidence, and humility. Thank God for every blessing in ALL THINGS.
Posted at Mises Institute:“Local Nullification: A Way to Fight Both State and Federal Despots” By James Ketler “Throughout American history, decentralists have championed “states’ rights” as the winning strategy for freedom, but what if that’s not enough? After all, states, in many cases, have themselves become instruments of grave tyranny. What are citizens to do when their own state governments impose onerous restrictions, regulations, and mandates upon them? In recent years, the answer has become clear: local governments can interpose themselves between the citizens and the state government by refusing to uphold unjust laws.”

Does this mean the capacity crunch in the trans-Pacific market is finally easing? Absolutely not, warned Nerijus Poskus, vice president of global ocean at freight forwarder Flexport. “It’s not getting better. It’s getting worse,” he told American Shipper in an interview on Monday. “What I’m seeing is unprecedented. We are seeing a tsunami of freight,” he reported.”
Posted at The Liberty Loft:“Gohmert Blasts Democrat’s Double Standard in Joint Session Speech” By JD Washington “Charlotte, NC — The dominating news topic of the day will no doubt be President Joe Biden’s speech to a joint session of Congress. He said a lot of controversial things that mainstream media will love and conservative media will report against. While those things are important, there is a glaring double standard that must be looked at.”
Posted at The Federalist:“DOJ Targets Journalist Investigating Biden Family Ukraine Scandals” By Tristan Justice “According to the Wall Street Journal, “Costello said the warrant sought communications between Mr. Giuliani and individuals including John Solomon, a columnist who was in communication with Mr. Giuliani about his effort to push for Ukrainian investigations of President Biden before he was elected.”“
Posted at Sara A. Carter:“War Correspondent: ‘It’s a war out there’ on the border” By Jenny Goldsberry “Over a month has passed since Vice President Kamala Harris was named the Biden administration’s Border Czar and she has yet to visit the Southern border or give a press conference on the current migrant surge. Now, reporters are visiting the border themselves to get the real story. Michael Yon has reported on wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Now, he’s reporting on what he describes as another “war” at the U.S.-Mexico border.“
Posted at The Washington Free Beacon:“Pompeo Pushes Investigation Into Kerry for Leaking Secrets to Iran” By Adam Kredo “A leaked audio recording of Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif, who worked closely with Kerry when the 2015 nuclear accord was negotiated, catches the Iranian official claiming the former Obama administration secretary of state informed him about at least 200 Israeli strikes on Iranian military positions in Syria. That Kerry shared these intimate details “to his astonishment,” according to the New York Times, suggests Kerry may have been disclosing classified information. It would also represent a stunning betrayal of America’s closest Middle East ally. Israel relies on the United States to protect shared intelligence from its top regional enemy.”
Editor’s Comments: If you own an Android smart phone, you are using the Google Android Operating System, unless you have installed an alternative such as Lineage OS. Nearly everyone should be aware by now that Google spies on it’s “customers”, logging their location data, tracking everything they look at in Google Chrome (if you haven’t downloaded and switched to Brave Browser, do it now), and every single email that they send and receive with their Gmail account. You might as well leave your living room and your bedroom curtains open all day and all night, because that is exactly what you are doing electronically with your smart phone.
Read the article linked above. Be aware of the data you are sharing, either knowingly or unknowingly. There are some changes you can make right now that can reduce the amount of data you are providing to them by installing a VPN, such as NORDVPN, and setting the controls so that it is always on, and starts when you boot your phone. Set the “kill switch” so that your data stops if the VPN server goes down, and for goodness sake, from within the VPN interface, change the DNS settings to something other than Google’s DNS servers (which are 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124). Change them to Cloudfare’s servers, as an example, which are 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52. If you do not want a VPN, for some reason (I’m unaware of any reason NOT to use one), you can install the Cloudfare DNS App.
We have more ideas in this article, and will continue to update and provide as much information as we possibly can to help you reduce your electronic footprint, regain some of your privacy, and stop providing the giant data miners and multiple government agencies with a complete record of your daily life. You have the right to privacy, but you have to actively exercise it… you can no longer take it for granted.
Editorial Comment Perhaps the role and responsibilities of the USPS should be carefully considered following a thorough and transparent public investigation of all of the above. As is the case with many institutions, there are many dedicated employees who work hard to provide the best service possible to the public. It is especially unfortunate given the investment of those so dedicated, that co-existing with them would be the rot of corruption. This must be resolved, and the integrity of our institutions restored.
Investigative journalism is a safeguard, and the journalists who practice it in pursuit of the truth are our sentinels. Their work is often difficult, and sometimes dangerous. In these times, it is especially so – and yet these intrepid reporters persist. We’re thankful they do! Below you’ll find a sampling of 4 titles here at home page, and 13 excellent selections in the Reading Room. We hope you’ll support this work which – in a world overrun by corruption – is more important than ever before. By informing ourselves and others, exposing wrongdoing and hypocrisy, and demanding the accountability of leadership at every level, we can restore integrity to our Constitutional Republic. We thank you also for making your purchases through our Books-a-Million affiliate because these also support and make possible the work we do for you at Professor Preponomics.
Posted at The Washington Free Beacon:“Congressional GOP Introduces Largest Package of Iran Sanctions in History” By Adam Kredo “The legislation, dubbed the Maximum Pressure Act, would formally codify the Trump administration’s tough sanctions campaign on Iran and force the Biden administration to submit any revamped nuclear deal with Iran to Congress for review before it is approved. The bill, spearheaded by the Republican Study Committee, was unveiled during a morning press conference on Capitol Hill with former secretary of state Mike Pompeo, who led the Trump administration’s efforts to isolate Iran and defund its regional terrorism enterprise.”
