Thank you
We need another 94 people to stand with us

Out of the Million Or so People who visit this website every month. I need another 169 readers 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.
