Klar: The free speech beauty of Substack

by John Klar

The Beauty of Substack is that it offers a growing forum for Americans to free themselves from the stifling false narratives of a failed media. Substack is not the only platform doing this, but it is forging a new world of free speech and education by unfettering writers from a co-opted national and local media.

I’m a Walter Cronkite and Roger Mudd guy. You know, Bob Woodward and Watergate: the journalistic tail wagging the establishment dog; the hero investigator who unearths the truth untainted by personal ideology; the creed of presenting both sides to every issue while aspiring to press one’s personal views into the background.

That is not America today. Watergate was a tame blip in political perfidy compared to the fake news of Russia-Trump collusion and the Steele Dossier. Hunter Biden’s laptop appears to have been real after all, but a coordinated effort by an Orwellian phalanx of big media liars worked unethically and assiduously to engage in blatant propaganda. This is the opposite of what used to be defined as journalism. 

Orwellian Times

The government actively violated basic First Amendment liberties in the COVID narrative (a bevy of lies about origin, effectiveness, natural immunity, alternative therapies, and safety – how can any sane human swallow so much guff in one go?). Policing social media for “disinformation,” the government conspired with the pharmaceutical industry to concoct one of the largest disinformation campaigns in human history.

We are at the precipice of the end of America as the world has known her, and the loss of everything this nation has ever built, because of a failed media and a failure of the citizenry to stay informed. And the pivotal battle is not for guns or voting rights, but simply for the power and liberty to speak freely. (Well, there’s also food, as this newsletter often observes).

The 2016 Democratic Primary was unethically thieved from Bernie Sanders by the Clinton Clan, and barely a peep of objection was heard. But when the Biden/Harris criminal enterprise attempted the same against Robert F. Kennedy, and enlisted the increasingly uncredible MSM as allies, Kennedy stepped above them to the alternative world of true media: interviews with critical thinkers who ask tough questions, such as Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson, and Russell Brand. 

Now Substack

This is where Substack and similar venues become vital. 

Increasingly, Americans awakening to the Big Lie program seek truth and authenticity. Just as Kennedy turned to alternative media, more and more people are getting their information not from talking heads in the MSM who have demonstrated how shallow and pathetically corrupted they have become, but from writers of integrity who dare risk retaliation to spread truth to combat government lies. Substack is a goldmine from which to harvest truth and authenticity, and to spread it like wildfire to others who seek truth.

I increasingly get my news second-hand, from Substack authors. They are out there digging and researching 24 hours daily, using their academic disciplines, experience, connections, and geographical location to oppose the Big Liars of MSM and the Federal Government. I have learned to greatly trust and admire a collection of these writers, even where I (refreshingly?) disagree with them.

The eclectic and intense collection of research and deep critical thought available only on Substack is broad, and so I dare not even attempt to list some favorites for risk of excluding anyone. There is a seemingly endless library of talented writers with diverse viewpoints here, displaying a diversity of skills, views, and subject areas. There is nothing even approaching this array of critical thought in today’s mainstream media, because the MSM is utterly compromised.

Tucker Carlson’s firing showed that even the most popular of MSM television personalities is subject to constant censorship by networks or their (Big Pharma?) advertisers. Dave Chappelle appears traumatized by contracts that deprived him of freedom and self-ownership: but it is clear that no human gets to work in that industry and still own themself, whether black or white, male or female, rich or poor. 

Substack presents a completely different platform: an Underground where even crazy voices can express themselves. As a writer, I can experiment here with style, content, length, delivery, and even additional media like audio, video, and photographs. What I create is personalized, authentic, and creatively liberated: I can make mistakes freely as well, and be corrected or educated by the responsive comments of readers, or by other writers. Increasingly, Substack is becoming an escapist community for free thinkers. It represents a growing recoil against the global and federal tyranny unfolding before our eyes.

I here praise Substack and its creators, but also its readers and writers. Whatever the subject, the intense and intelligent content that floods through the Substack platform daily is an invaluable gift; a life raft of sanity and free thought adrift in a world gone mad with MSM malarkey. I am hooked, and excited at the tremendous opportunity this presents to escape the dark totalitarianism that no longer hides.

And so, I say to all patriots and living minds: to arms! Arm yourselves with this panoply of intense and gifted writers; persuade loved ones and friends to read particular articles or explore Substack more fully. The platform is growing steadily: a hope in itself. 

Spread the word: Let us not go quietly into that dark MSM night. Let us speak truth to lies, and gird ourselves with free speech, and the courage to preserve it!

  1. Agreed. The world would be very bleak without Substack; I’ve been following many of the truth-tellers being censored during these Orwellian times.

    Censorship is being used to ‘divide & conquer’ the masses (the 1% globalists at the WEF, WHO, UN want us to war against each other, so they can enforce the inverted totalitarian society that Chris Hedges has warned us against; we are on the brink of losing all our freedoms and the WHO is planning another “lockdown”.

    If I could pick a handful of substack writers who have crossed the barrier of censorship ~ The following would be recognized as the American Heroes they are … if ONLY the masses knew of them.

    He saved many lives when he shared with the world at a US Senate Meeting on 12/08/2020 that Ivermectin was a very safe & effective medicine could both prevent & cure Covid-19. MSNBC mocked his attempt by calling it “horse paste”

    WHY the censorship? … If big pharma allowed this truth to get out that Ivermectin was effective against C19, – the CDC never could have approved the EUA for an experimental mRNA C19-injection (which violated the Nuremberg Code). He pleaded @ the Senate hearing (link below; CSPAN) that the NIAID & FDA recognize Ivermectin so MD’s could begin saving more lives; he was ignored, lost his job @ an ICU & millions more died. Uncensored TRUTH – both Africa & Uttar Pradesh, India ~ had a very low mortality rate because they used Ivermectin during C19. He is the author of book; “The War On Ivermectin: The Medicine that Saved Millions and Could Have Ended the Pandemic” – published June 2023

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome … throughout the entire globe – aka “Unknown Cause of Death” that just so happened to spring up after mass injections of the experimental mRNA C19 injections (that were neither safe, nor effective & violated the Nuremberg Code of Ethics).

  2. Alternate explanations may be entertained about the origin, effectiveness, natural immunity, alternative therapies concerning covid, therefore the governement is lying to us about them. That’s always easier, isn’t it?

  3. It’s mentioned that we are at risk of losing everything this nation has ever built. When this country was built was the care of all ever a priority? Not hardly, it began and and continues to be exploitation over and over again. This ship sails in only one direction it always has and always will.
