True, This! —
Beneath the rule of men entirely great
The pen is mightier than the sword. Behold
The arch-enchanters wand! — itself is nothing! —
But taking sorcery from the master-hand
To paralyse the Cæsars, and to strike
The loud earth breathless! — Take away the sword —
States can be saved without it! (Bulwer-Lytton, Edward. Richelieu 2.2)
"The pen is mightier than the sword." This quotation from the 1839 historical play Richelieu by the British writer Edward Bulwer-Lytton sums up the belief, the hope and the mission of TheTruthTeller, as a radical new medium for the dissemination of un-proscribed, unfiltered and unadulterated Truth. Here, we promise to give you the uncut, uncensored opinions on everything from A-Z on issues that affect the health and welfare of the traditionally oppressed peoples of this country and the world.
We will not water down our product or dumb it down too make it more digestible or palatable to the masses. Instead we will deliver it to you as inspiration and God presents it to us in hopes the messages will penetrate through divine discernment and resonate with all who have a mind to read or listen, without respect to race, color, creed or socioeconomic conditions. Our goal is Truth, nothing more and nothing less.
Although no individual or group has a monopoly on Truth, existing news media unfortunately has exhibited a stronghold on the way the truth is consistently mangled, distorted and contorted to fit national, political and special interest agendas. The rich and powerful control traditional news media outlets and therefore they have served as the gatekeepers of information that they select and package to the public.
Here, we seem to provide an alternative to the familiar and utterly predictable talking heads on once respected cable TV news networks. These networks once were bastions of credibility and non-biased reporting have devolved into the nonsensical and opinionated babble by those least qualified to voice one (opinion).
Enough is enough! It's time for the restoration of some old fashioned truth in journalism; untainted by big money or special interest. "The Truth and nothing but."
So that is our mantra and this is our goal - to tell the truth as we see it without regard for popular opinion or political correctness. We believe that politics, by nature, is incorrect. Terminally influenced by big money, and lobbyists for every special interest that can be bought with the dollar. Although our opinions may not always be shared or perceived as prophetic, we will strive to give perspectives that are proscribed by the rich and powerful whose interests often conflict with the health and wellbeing of the oppressed masses. Unfortunately, the political machine which is the U.S. government has become more and more unresponsive to the needs and wants of the government. A wake up is needed and a wakeup call is needed now! This is what we at TheTruthTeller intend to provide.
