Saluting Those Who Stand By A True Alternative

The Boiling Frogs Post Team Thanks You For All Your Support

Fundraising ThermometerWe have achieved our goal in raising the funds needed to carry us for another quarter. We want to thank you for all your support. We appreciate your kind and generous donations during these tough economic times. We know that your support goes beyond monetary donations- that your support is also your statement and action against disinformation and propaganda. You have placed your faith and trust in us, and we have made ‘you’ the sole determinant of our existence, survival and expansion. This is the only way to pursue the truth and needed changes: With critical minds, without partisanship, with no agenda-driven funding, staunchly and independently.

I am one of those people who truly and passionately dislike Oscar-Like mushy and cheesy ‘thank you’ ceremonies. That said, I want to non-cheesy-ly and briefly thank the following people:

Many thanks to all my partners for spending so much time and energy producing highly informative podcast shows, brilliant investigative video reports and powerful editorial toons-You’ve been pounding with passion and dedication despite your demanding life-family-health-jobs, and despite our current humble budget.

Many thanks to every single supporter of Boiling Frogs Post, and special thanks to two supporters, in Louisiana and the UK, for their generous and gracious contributions- I want to emphasize ‘gracious’ It lightened the brief dark stage when I was pondering which programs to cut back in order to continue. Thank you so very much.

A small thanks to those who tried very hard to dissuade us from forming and pursuing this website. You said ‘it is impossible without foundation backing or deep-pocket advertisers.’ You insisted that it wouldn’t work. Your dissuasion attempts made me that much more determined (and stubborn), and that determination has brought us this far (so far). And for that I owe you a small ‘thank you.’

Please tell me I succeeded in being brief, non-cheesy, and un-Oscar-Like. And I hope I was able to relay our sincere appreciation for all your support.

We Need Your Support- Help Us Continue Countering the ‘Dumb-ification of the Masses’

Boiling Frogs Post Needs $8000 To Meet This Quarter’s Budget!

What does it mean to be a ‘True Alternative’ among the too many and too powerful media outlets infested with lies and busy with implementing deception and propaganda? As a long-term truth seeker and activist, and as a founder and director of Boiling Frogs Post, I believe I have gained a certain degree of moral authority to answer this question confidently:

The true alternative means the truly independent: independent of foundation mega-bucks, independent of corporate-sponsors, and independent of mega-advertisement dollars. There is only ONE way for a truly independent alternative to exist, survive, continue and expand: Through People- direct contributions and donations by the people for the people.

Without the people’s support there will never be a true alternative. Never. The truly independent alternatives will not survive without the support and backing of the people. Thus, it is up to the people to decide and take steps to support the real independent and counter the mega establishment and the ‘Dumb-ification of the Masses.’

Three years ago this website, Boiling Frogs Post, began with a promise: a site where the irate minority (that’s me and you), those aware and tired of the creators of lies-fables-smoke and mirrors, could call home. It was created on a pledge: complete independence from the establishment- those who come in many forms-whether foundations, sponsors or deep-pocket advertisers.

For over three years our team of producers and analysts has been presenting you with untainted, bold, independent and nonpartisan facts and discussions through original video reports, podcast interviews and commentaries, editorial cartoons, news, articles and analyses. We believe we have been effective: we have been shining the light on the truth, and have been irritating the powers and their puppetries. We have expanded our team and coverage. And, we have accomplished this through one source (and one source only): You and your support.

We can only exist with the support of our irate minority members and supporters. Without your subscriptions we won’t be able to create and produce original and independent multimedia shows. Without your donations we won’t be able to research, verify, select and present to you crucial news and developments night after night…Without your support this truth source cannot exist. Without your support the obscurers of the truth will win.

Please help us continue and expand- for the independent truth, and for all of us. You can help counter the project ‘Dumb-ification of the Masses.’ Yes, you certainly can, and here is how:

Boiling Frogs Post: It Boils Down to ‘Us’ vs. ‘Them’- Let’s Not Let Them Win

Half Way There-Half Way to Go

First things first: We want to thank all our supporters for their kind and generous contributions during these tough times. We know who you are. You are not ‘the’ 1% with deep pockets and devious agendas who feed and sustain the mainstream and pseudo-alternative misinformation mediums. On the other hand you are the ‘other’ 1%: The irate and tireless minority fed up with deception and propaganda, keen to set brush fires in people’s minds. Granted, often it is tiring to be the tireless irate minority. Sometimes it feels like being on the set of David vs. Goliath. But look, together, we are still standing our ground.

We still have a ways to go before reaching our minimum goal necessary to sustain us for another quarter. Without your subscriptions we won’t be able to create and produce our original and independent multimedia shows. Without your donations we won’t be able to research and present to you the crucial news and developments night after night…Without your support this truth source cannot exist. Without your support the obscurers of the truth will win. After all, it boils down to ‘Us’ vs. ‘Them’- So please, let’s Not let ‘them’ win.

Please help us continue and expand- for the independent truth, and for all of us. You can, and here is how:

If We Were a Rich Site Yubby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dum!

…But We Are Not, and We Need Your Support

Yesterday we began our Quarterly Fundraising for our truly independent news website operating without a single penny from any foundations, corporations or agenda-pumping partisan interests. Boiling Frogs Post has been operating on a very modest and tight budget, yet it has been expanding due to our commitment to countering the mainstream and pseudo-alternative propaganda outlets. By modest I mean ‘extremely modest’. I marvel when I see or read about the amount of funding people receive for operating sites that do not deliver even one-tenth of what we have been providing here at this website. The other day I came across this ‘Rich Men’s Website’:

This ‘Rich Men’s Website’  asks for and receives at least $320,000 a year- $80,000 per quarter, to deliver daily aggregated news that comes mainly from a few mainstream outlets such as Washington Post, New York Times, LA Times, BBC, and  the like. They have no radio shows. They don’t produce a single podcast show (syndicating is not producing, ey!). They don’t produce a single video report. They don’t have a single reporter with original reporting. No complex website or needed database … Yet, for a site that would take less than 5 hours a day to run, they receive $320,000 a year plus other funding through their ‘angels.’

I tell you what: We are envious. Compared to this ‘Rich Men’s Site’ here is what we do: We produce on average FOUR original in-depth and independent podcast shows per week with no commercials or outside funding-here, here, here, and here. We produce a weekly investigative and original video report that is truly unmatched- check it out here. We bring to you in-depth nightly news from several dozen sources (we do not include MSM outlets such as Washington Post, NY Times, Time Magazine, etc.). We publish daily analyses and articles by truly independent experts and authors. We even produce our own original political cartoons.

And guess what? We are bringing all the above mentioned (in addition to our cloud hosting cost, server webhosting cost, payment processors’ cost, and website technical support costs) with funding that is far less than One Quarter of the Rich Men’s Site!!!!

You know what I’m thinking? Here is what I’m thinking: If we were a rich site like that we’d have daily video reports, several daily podcast shows, our own team of investigative reporters, the best-looking website, and so much more!! Of course, that is if we were a rich site Yubby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dum …

Please help us continue and expand- for the independent truth, and for all of us. You can help counter the project ‘Dumb-ification of the Masses.’ Yes, you certainly can, and here is how:

Boiling Frogs Post Countdown: Week 2

Please Join & Help Us Reach Our First Benchmark of 1000 Donations

Update - March 3: We are one third of the way there; 700 more needed! We can do it - together.

Sibel EdmondsIn October 2009 I launched Boiling Frogs Post with one purpose in mind: To establish a venue for investigative articles, editorials, analyses, discussions, and interviews on issues largely censored and blacked out by the media. After four months of a successful trial phase this venue is now ready to enter its next stage, and for that it needs your support.

Boiling Frogs Post is solely dependent on its readers, and has no ties to any institution, foundation, organization or corporation. This is the only model I see fit to be called an independent news and views venue, untainted by external pressures, special interests or partisan flavoring.

Sibel Lighthouse Our authors and analysts present their work, not agenda scripts or special recipes handed to them for creation of a particular propaganda to serve a particular interest. And, our weekly commercial-free Podcast Show hosts the voices of noteworthy guests on topics long-muffled and quashed by the mainstream media and their minions on lower levels posing as alternatives.

I’m happy to report that in the four months since the launching of Boiling Frogs Post we have accomplished and delivered every single objective set prior to the launching this site. I am proud to have established a distinguished team of journalists, analysts, authors, and an editorial cartoonist whose work is based on truth and real issues.

Whether it is going after hypocrisy-ridden foreign policy practices, the ever revolving doors of foreign lobbies, or our stomped upon and continuously assaulted civil liberties, our work transcends the webs put in place by partisanship and special interests and agendas.

Here are a few examples of our work:

Sibel Edmonds- The Makings of a Police State Series

Dr. Nafeez Ahmed- Yemen, Energy Crisis & the Nigerian Crutch Bomber Series

Mizgin Yilmaz- Richard Armitage Series

Dr. William Weaver – The Impulse to Secrecy: The Glomar Response

Peter Lance: Fort Hood & the KSM Trial Series

Sibel Edmonds- Op-ed Series

In this short time span the Boiling Frogs Show has been able to present you with over 20 distinguished experts and whistleblowers from the fields of journalism, intelligence, grassroots activism, academia, and foreign policy. Here is a list of select interviews:

James Bamford on NSA & Illegal Domestic Wiretapping

Pepe Escobar on the Current Energy Crisis & the Quest for Central Asia-Caspian Region

Russ Baker on the Concept of Shadow Government and the Real Power Centers in the US

Daniel Ellsberg on Obama Presidency & Whistleblowers

Andy Worthington on America’s Detention Center at Guantanamo Bay

Chris Hedges on the US Media & the Empire of Illusion

Coleen Rowley on Accountability, Whistleblowers & Activism

I believe during this four-month trial phase Boiling Frogs Post has established a solid track record with what it has accomplished, and a view of what it can accomplish given your support and backing. We are now ready to begin our next phase, during which we will continue to provide what you have seen, read, and listened to thus far, and additionally, will present exclusive video clips and investigative stories.

This site will continue and expand only with your direct support. I am asking every one of you to consider yourself as the one who can make this possible, that without your active support this real alternative site will not continue or exist, and that without your help those who consider truly independent channels like this ‘impossible to survive and flourish’ will be proven right, and with that we will all lose. So please do your share, and contribute whatever you can now.

Our countdown to receive your support and donations begins today. No donation is either too small or too large. Please donate what you can to keep this home of the irate minority alive, and thank you for all you do.
