This is an initial site for a new initiative I am starting this year. Next week I will be making fliers to hand out at the Sacramento Capitol. Meanwhile, other resources:

Amid escalating doubt of his credibility, Trump reportedly emailed this binary-choice questionnaire to his base today. If this is true, Trump has now formally declared war on truth. The academic community will name it the fascism it is, and if it continues, Trump will start a civil war.

There’s been much discussion about ‘fake news’ recently, leading to renewed arguments on the nature of truth. In fact, most people are totally disinterested in understanding the nature of truth, but instead only wish to prove their own view irrefutable, which is actually impossible. This topic explains why, via examination of the formal definition of the meaningfulness of 'post truth,' within the context of the truth theories of modern philosophy.

Was this Tweet true because Trump was certain evidence would be found later?

President Trump should be removed from office because he had no proof whatsoever at the time he stated that President Obama had committed a felonious offense. It's irrelevant whether evidence is found after the fact. He deliberately misled the public into thinking he had secret proof for two weeks, before finally admitting that he had heard it on Fox News. That was after three separate public investigations had started, all of which had already concluded there was no evidence, despite Trump's attempts to widen, distort, and even embroil other countries in his increasingly outlandish fantasies. By refusing to inform the committees of the truth, that is all by itself felony obstruction. Moreover, this is only one of many similar cases where he did not execute his office faithfully, thus violating his Presidential oath, and so he should be impeached for perjury.

Last week, Facebook added a ‘disputed news’ metadata tag, the first in a series of expected social media tools to filter out 'fake news' [1]. The appearance of more such tools will be a last-ditch effort to save factual truth on the Internet. But will they work? Although fake news filtering is a great idea, I feel rather obligated to point out, no, it won't work, because they do not address the real problem. First I need to say, I am a retired Oxford scholar of philosophy and prior digital architect for Intel, Apple, AT&T and Comcast products. I have been following this trend for the last ten years, first in 2nd-Amendment social media groups. When I first predicted that Tea Party ethics would take over the government, academics scoffed at me. Last year they were no longer scoffing. So I will explain what I have observed.

Canadian investigative journalists counted and categorized the lies told by Trump in the 18 days before the 2016 Presidential election day: a total of 560, or 20 per day

Trump just called for peace and unity in his first address to joint congress. Fox News anchor Hannity is saying, "what an impressive speech! How could any disagree?"...So I drafted most of this in 20 minutes right then. Within 8 hours of Trump's speech, my comment received more attention on Facebook than any I have ever written before. So I share it here. But I have to start with the answer to all criticisms so far: I am an Oxford scholar, American citizen, and neither liberal nor a democrat.
