Favorite/Best Alternative Information Sites

Since trusting the establishment media machine for the truth isn't in the common person's best interests, what alternative news sources do you go for news/information/current event commentary, economically-oriented or not?  I'd like to see what sites contribute to our worldviews and perhaps resulting in some kind of go-to library of trusty sites.....

News Sources

Great question!

I like to read the newspapers, online editions and scan the headlines to see what the mainstream media has decided is newsworthy. E.g., LA Times, etc. I also read Drudge. He seems to have the ability to pick out the gems from the rest of the noise.

Mostly, I get news insight from the blogs. Of course Turd's blog is amazing. I like zero hedge not only for the insightful articles, but also for the counterbalance to the traditional media viewpoints. I read MISH, although not the comments anymore since Black Swan left there in anger. MISH is pretty stubborn and can be less than open-minded.

I also like drhousingbubble.com, and Patrick.net. They also link to other fantastic sites as well.

For the investment info on silver and what not, I try to read them all daily like jsmineset, etc.

I find that gathering my news this way gives me a very broad base picture from which to draw my own conclusions. When I do listen to the radio or watch tv, it tends to amuse me since it is so easy to see the programming that is being done to distract the sheeple from the truth. I mean it is just comical to see what passes for news on tv.

Anyhow, that is essentially how I do it. As for discreet, narrow topics, I just do a goggle search and start digging around on the net. Eventually I find the expert, or several, and then start reading. This seems to work for me.

For example, despite my college degrees, I had no idea that the Fed was a private corporation. I did not know that debt = money. I did not know what it meant to have a currency backed by gold, or what it meant when Nixon abolished the gold standard in 1971.

I started asking myself why did I not know those things. Then I slowly started figuring out the truth. I was only able to gain some real understanding by going to non traditional sources, like the blogs, and by reading books that MISH suggested. For that I am truly grateful, but my quest for knowledge has only just started.

Let us hope that this blog gets the word out!!!!!

Alex Jones

http://www.infowars.com

Now I know a lot of people in this circle think Alex probably takes things a little too far into black helicopter land.. And they're probably right, but that doesn't negate the fact that he interviews some of the smartest truth tellers on earth. I've been listening to his radio show for about 6 years and my only regret is not paying attention sooner.

There are several other sites in my daily grind but I'm sure others will share them. Sites like ZeroHedge, KingWorldNews, etc etc

If you want information on

If you want information on Obama's birth certificate, www.wnd.com World Net Daily is the go-to place.

They have an array of plausible-sounding information about variable typesetting, kerning etc that is suggestive of forgery. Their info has been passed to the FBI.

Is Obama's recent "One term would be fine" comment the smoke that portends fire?

That statement says it all!  WILL Hillary get her chance?  Do you think Obama will cite a health problem?  I couldn't believe it when I read that.  In over your heads?  I think so.  They're an embarrassment...they have no clue...it IS Jed Clampet comes to Washington!

He's there for a reason...somebody spent a LOT of money to get HIM in that spot.  Why is the question.  I think it's war with the ME.  He's a Muslim, all the better to keep the Arabs off guard.  While we slowly take over the oil.  We pay too much for it...we NEED it a LOT cheaper.  Low cost oil would re-spur growth and get us out of this depression.  The game must go on...somehow.

ZH / RT

I personally still like ZeroHedge.com for latest and breaking "economics" news.   RT.com is a nice non-US media site.  They're at least _trying_ to ask some hard questions, and you'll see more coverage of really important stuff that the US MSM doesn't show.  And yes, RT is slightly biased... but so is everybody!  I think they are still mostly neutral in regards to the economic coverage.  Besides.. they host the Keiser Report!

Bob Chapman

I read his International forecaster. It´s such a good publication and he is spot on. He has enormous experience in gold and silver.

He understands the whole picture, economic, social, political, that few do.

He does like 5+ Interviews a day on radio also, so it´s easy to listen to him as well.

I receive the Daily Bell, the American Free Press, and pajamasmedia in my email every morning. I particularly like the Daily Bell for non-party oriented news.

Info sites

General news ; drudge, infowars, rt.com/max Keiser , scan though fox ,CNN , fox biz, cnbc for the latest breaking programming.

Financial ; turd,zero hedge ,silvergoldsilver, weekly telegram, FOFOA,

Info wars, does alot of great interviews, the only down side he tends to interrupt callers and guests to interject his view,you get use to it after awhile. Alex is so far ahead of the pack, when it comes to the NWO.

My meager additions to the list:

PsyWar by Metanoia films – similar to Century of the Self, but much more recent and darker documentary

Paul Grignon's 47-minute animated presentation of "Money as Debt"


Money as Debt 2

Daily Reading / Browsing

Here's the blogs/sites that I tend to follow regularly..

I also peruse the MSM from time to time - but there is far too much Anthony Weiner (or similar titilating story of the day) coverage and focus for my taste. CNN - Financial Post - National Post - Financial Times

Can't recommend Stefan

Can't recommend Stefan Molyneux enough.  I'm sure there are a lot of people here that will disagree with him (particularly about religion), but what is philosophy if it isn't challenging the way you think?

Indeed

Absolutely! I was wondering why no one had mentioned that.

Ed Steer's Gold and Silver Daily - a good selection of links every day, to take or leave.

Over half New Yorkers are open to re-investigating 911

Watched Loose Change 911 again the other day. The atrocity of it all still blows me away.

I would hardly suggest that

I would hardly suggest that the most unread "best alternative news source" would be your KJV of the Bible or any translation for that matter.

I agree with many of the sites you have posted above for good worldly wisdom, I read many of them daily, but one might do well to consider it also the Bible........

"Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Psalm 2: 1:-4

James nails that EE empire and the bankster's further.......

Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.  Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.  Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.  Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

The Lord is not condemning those that take prudent steps against the the fraud that is perpetrated against the masses. He is pronouncing judgment against the money changers, the banksters, those who have withheld the "hire of the labourers and who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud"

He is pronouncing judgment against wicked who have crushed the dreams of the common people by financial and political manipulation

God has almost had enough of them. Be patient. Prepare, but Trust in whom alone can deliver.

They will have their day.... keep fighting.

Yes, I second that. WRH is one of my favorite sites. Surprised it wasn't mentioned sooner.
