Resistance to tyranny starts with knowledge...

Civil Liberty’s Call  is about change: During   2014,   in   the   midst   of   adding   to   my   graduate   level   education,   I   discovered that   my   history   degrees   had   an   outlet;   I   had   a   skill   for   writing   and   producing educational   videos.      Pursuit   of   this career   led   me   to   invest   (that   is   run up     credit     debt)     in     a     recording studio/library/   office   that   I   designed and   built   myself   in   the   basement   of our   home.     As   a   centrist   politically   I had   developed   the   ability   to   remain unbiased   and   I   believed   that   when combined       with       my       research abilities    I    could    create    a    product that   was   cutting   edge   21st   century.     I   was   ready   to   begin   my   new   job as an entrepreneur and digital educator. Things changed for me: With   the   entry   of   Donald   Trump   into   the   political   race   I   realized   that   my   centrist position   was   no   longer   something   I   could   maintain.      I   soon   joined   with      historians     like   David   McCullough,   Ken   Burns,   and   others   in   speaking   out   vehemently   against his   candidacy   for   President   of the   United   States.      From   the fall     of     2015     my     political       efforts   increased   dramatically as    the    threat    of    a    Trump presidency    increased.    I    saw telltale   signs   in   his   words,   his public       actions,       and       his associates,   that   I   was   able   to compare   directly   to   leaders   of the past…these were not quality leaders either. Things changed in America: As    I    had    predicted    in    2015,    hate    began    to    emerge    under   Trump’s    campaign approach.      Never   truly   removed   during   the Civil    Rights    Movement    in    the    1960’s,    a resurgence   of   white   supremacists   began   to respond    to    his    siren    call.        Violence    and intolerance   became   daily   watchwords   in   the media   and   our   social   networks.      When   the election     ended     we     saw     that     all     three branches    of    the    republic    were    under    the control    of    the    conservative    rightwing,    but also   one   with   a   heavy   lean   towards   bigotry and   racism.      The   GOP,   the   same   party   that would   have,   mere   decades   ago,   been   outraged   at   the   interference   of   the   Russian military   in   a   U.S.   election,   now   seemed   not   to   care   in   the   least.      Since   the   election “Pay    to    Play”    and    corruption    has    poured    into    Washington    D.C.    as    never before…and so have those who rule by fear. My reversal of fortune: Due   to   that   election   and   with   Trump’s   subsequent   appointment   of   billionaire   and anti-public   school   advocate   Betsy   DeVos   as   Secretary   of   Education,   my   plans   for   a new   career   were   indefinitely   halted—I   went   from   having   a   truly   huge      potential customer     list     (nearly every       educator       in America)     to     virtually none.      As   U.S.   public schools    prepared    for the   worst   under   Besty DeVos’   dangerous   and unqualified   leadership, my   investors   all   shook their    heads    for    2017.      TemporSirius      Media, LLC,   The   future   of education,   today now   had   no   future   for at   least   four   years.      Out   of   this   truckload   of   lemons   that   life   had   delivered,   I   created C ivil L iberty’s C all.   Facing the changes that threaten us: My goals with CLC are simple: Provide a hate free news source with balanced, accurate reporting concerning threats to our civil rights and civil liberties and other key issues Research fake news, satire sites, and legitimate sources and provide up to date lists of each Share my editorial opinions separate from the news section—using my history skills to place current events into a context with the past In   the                                                                                                            you   have   access   to   my   Blog,   Pod   Casts,   and      Video Casts   as   well   as   opportunities   to   interact,   sharing   your   thoughts.      CLC   maintains   a presence    on    social    media    too;    Facebook™,    Twitter™,    and    YouTube™    are available for you to follow as well. While    I    am    not    where    I planned     to     be,     I     am where   I   need   to   be,   doing what    I    believe    needs    to be    done.        One    of    my heroes    from    the    past    is the    CBS    news    reporter Walter     Cronkite.     As     a       journalist         who         was         honest   and   ethical,      when he   spoke,   we   believed   what   he   said.      My   goal   is   to   emulate   the   man   I   trusted   for my   news,   to   not   provide   you   my   truth,   but   to   provide   only   the   facts,   even   if   they   are inconvenient.      Lies,   hate,   and   deceit   were   used   to   get   us   into   the   disaster   we   are now  in…only the opposite can get us back out.
