Websites we do and do NOT share from

We were asked recently by some fans for a list of pages we do and do not endorse. So, here we go.

There's a number of pages that I call "The Axis of Ego". They are pages run by Samuel Warde, Lou Colagiovanni and Matthew Desmond - or their friends who are trying corner the market on liberal and progressive media on Facebook. There are other page admins who work closely with them and that collective group will often try to absorb smaller pages that produce good content or turn them into satellite pages for their network.



Why? They run websites that pose as "news" pages which are laden with advertising and they want to get as much traffic as they can, which translates into money. While there's nothing wrong with wanting to make money, the method by which they do it is shady, in my opinion. These methods include mass reporting pages that will not work with them, cyber-stalking individuals, etc.

As an example, here is a Facebook page dedicated solely to making fun of me, my old Facebook page, and my friend John Henry. This post is from one of the websites mentioned below, americannewsx.com which is owned by a Thomas Clay Jr from Kentucky and currently employs a former admin of the Whiskey page, Steve Ahearn of Arizona.


These individuals are/were friends with the owner of Addicting Info, and regularly harass people with multiple fake profiles and pages to circumvent Facebook's ban or block protocols. Ahearn and his acquaintances especially like to bully people who ask for financial assistance, even though he has been a professional internet beggar as long as I have known him.



The following are pages that we know of that are owned or are in the clutches of individuals like these. This is not an all-inclusive list but it is a good reminder of what pages and practices to avoid as well as a list of pages that aren't about putting profit first and the cause second - all while engaging in cyber harassment and bullying.

  2. I'm calling bullshit! American News X is not owned by Warde, Desmond, or Lou C, nor is it a "satellite" site for any of these outlets. If it were owned by a member of the axis of whatever you feel like calling it Manny, then I would not be permitted to be a writer for that website. I would love to see some proof to back up your claim, I guess what I'm really getting at is you have some kind of gripe with these people running "websites that pose as "news" pages which are laden with advertising and they want to get as much traffic as they can, which translates into money." Meanwhile you work at and also co-own www.forwardprogressives.com which is a website, posing as a "news" page which is laden with advertising and I'm sure that part of your goals are to get as much traffic as you can, which translates into money. Manny, I wonder if you know what society calls someone who tries endlessly to convince people that everyone else is doing wrong meanwhile that person is doing the same exact thing, however when they do it - it is pure, or ethical, or society should "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain." A common term for such a person would be a "hypocrite." However, after getting to know you a little better than the average fan of your blog or your "click bait" "articles" (on the website which you co-own and draw a profit from driving traffic to -- forwardprogressives.com) I
    would have to say that your constant need to blame everyone else for doing exactly what you do, every single day -- falls way closer to the classification of a sociopath than that of a hypocrite. Why can't we stop trying to fight everyone and simply get along and in the areas which we cannot see eye to eye, we agree to disagree? It would be much less nerve wrecking that way. you may want to get your facts straight before posting shit information like that otherwise you are no better than the Nazi propaganda artists of WWI and WWII. http://www.americannewsx.com is not owned nor affiliated with any of the people who you obsess over like a crazed, mentally deranged groupie. reverbpress.com on the other hand is definitely affiliated with as well as co-owned by Desmond but has somehow failed to make your little list, Desmond having a hand in this site is the main reason I haven't gone to work for them, one of the owners offered me a spot writing with them until Mr. Hansen caught wind of it, which apparently was an automatic no. Manny, its really a shame because you're a great guy who mostly means well, at least I think you do, but you waste precious time chasing windmills when you could be doing something possitive -- such as campaigning for our next President, Bernie Sanders or another equally noble cause, yet you are still all wound up in your tangled web of pointing the finger at everyone but yourself. I'll leave you with one final thought though, every time you point your finger at someone else, there are 3 fingers pointing right back at you.

  4. Manny, Manny, Manny, what's the matter? Someone leaves a comment that slightly contradicts your opinion that you are cleverly sensationalizing in such a way to make them appear to be cold hard facts and rather than be a man and offer any forn of proof to support your claims, you just delete my comment? Then you passive agressively add my crappy blog (which) had no views for the past month, that is until yesterday when you added it to this sad attempt to drive traffic away from people like myself who are simply fed up with accepting the status quo! Thanks for nentioning my site and for the traffic your backfired plan is now providing! I do have screenshots upon request for anyone who may be wondering what the "Great and Power full Whiskey" is hiding by deleting my previous comments "Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain!"

  5. Thank you for this. I have caught several of these "we do not share from" pages (a) flagrantly violating others' copyrights; and/or (b) using people's photos out of context to make a point the subject of the photo appears to agree with but does not; and/or (c) presenting information that is inaccurate and misleading. These are tactics of the far-right, and I appreciate your vetting these sites and saying which to avoid and which are more trustworthy.

  6. You know Manny, to remain more honest and accountable to your readers you really should consider changing the name of this blog to "LSD and the morning after" being as your observations and deductions are based on your own hallucinations and dillusional nonsense. Although I am flattered that I apparently rent such a large space in your head, none of what you have been accusing me of is in any way based in reality. You should really seek professional help for your problems Manny, or whatever your real name is.
