Is Your Mind Worth Fighting For?
I need 295 people to stand with me.

Out of the Million Or so People who visit this website every month. I need 295 of you to step forward and support Information Clearing House in this effort to ensure that an alternative source of news and information exists to inform and cut through the distortions and lies told by a manipulative Main Stream Media.

Lies kill, lies maim children, blow up homes and work to destroy countless millennia of human progress and evolution.

Are we no more than laboratory rats programmed to behave according to a script written by those who see us as animals, whose only purpose is to be saddled and ridden according to their wishes.
Are we no more than slaves to our own desire for safety and comfort?

Is YOUR SANITY worth fighting for?
