I started this blog in November 2014 as a result of writing my first blog post — “You Can’t Handle the Truth!” I actually wrote that piece without the desire to start a blog. I had been reading and participating on the timhoward717 blog up until that point, but the piece I wrote was too big to post there (admittedly it is a bit long).
I started this blog mainly to post that piece, but one thing led to another and now have exceeded 200 posts. Granted, some of those posts are frivolous (music videos, song lyrics, etc.). However, some posts required intense research and took several hours to write…many consumed an entire weekend…
About the Blog
Why did you write so many blog posts? At the time, the truth needed to be told.
Why have you slowed down on the postings? The truth is out. It’s clear there are people on both sides of the truth, but for the most part, the top line elements of the Bush and Obama Administration actions – along with the assistance of their external contributors (journalists, congressmen, lobbyists, etc. etc.) – have been publicized.
How much money do you make from the ads on this blog? Nothing! Hopefully, the ads are just a slight annoyance to readers. I operate a free site, so WordPress makes money on posting ads on bloggers’ free accounts like mine.
Why are you anonymous? Because I don’t want people to know my identity! Seriously though, I felt I could go further with my accusations, speculations and commentary if I didn’t have to worry about it affecting my personal and business relationships. One may have assumed because I work to expose government malfeasance that I don’t want Big Bro to know who I am. I have no delusion of being able to hide my identity from the US government… (my wife frequently asks why there is a red laser dot in the middle of my forehead — I tell her to just ignore it…ha!)
That’s it for the Q&A
As you can see, I am not in this to make money on the blog. However, with full disclosure, I am a shareholder of both Fan and Fred; both common and preferred. I don’t try compete with anyone else. In fact, I have posted work by others on this blog — journalists, other bloggers, etc. I have no affiliation to any group or person…a completely independent, average joe…
My background is irrelevant. If you like what you read – keep reading. If not, that’s cool, too!
I’m motivated by the truth… I’ve fought — and won — wrongdoing on many other occasions, but obviously Fanniegate has been the biggest nut to crack! …we’re getting closer by the day!
Even though it is time consuming to keep a blog current, I will try to get back into posting more pieces. There is interest in Fanniegate and all that remotely goes into it. The story has many, many angles… And there is recent, new interest in Fanniegate. After Donald Trump was elected and after Steven Mnuchin made references to Fan/Fred immediately after his nomination, there have been many new people attracted to the story…trying to figure it all out for themselves.
By no means do I have it all figured out…there are people much smarter than me that can be consulted to learn more about specific details on Fanniegate. But I do appreciate the interest in my blog. I’ve had readers from over half the countries in the world — 110 out of 196. Besides the US, the top five countries are Canada, Germany, Singapore, Switzerland and Argentina.
One request I’ve received a few times is to update my post FANNIEGATE FOR BEGINNERS. I wrote that one in September 2015, so much has happened since. I will work on that update this weekend. It’s also been recommended to condense that piece into a one-page, bullet point summary…which I’ll try to get that one done, too.
Again, thanks for your interest in the blog. If interested, below is a screenshot of the top blog hits by views (I personally don’t think those represent the best posts, they just receive the most views for whatever reason – timing of post, Google searches, etc.).
The blog has a search function that is easily seen on the right side of the page if viewed on a computer. On a tablet, you need to view in landscape (sideways) vs. portrait (up & down) mode. I can’t get the search bar to pop up when viewing this blog on my phone (there’s probably a way, but I can’t figure it out…).
