Falsehoods Unchallenged Only Fester & Grow

The Fog­bow is a com­mu­ni­ty of peo­ple who enjoy fol­low­ing fringe polit­i­cal move­ments in Amer­i­can pol­i­tics. Orig­i­nal­ly formed in 2009 and ded­i­cat­ed to debunk­ing the “birther” move­ment, we have evolved as the birther move­ment fad­ed in the rear view mir­ror.

Today the only birthers worth talk­ing about are Ted Cruz birthers, and the var­i­ous law­suits chal­leng­ing his eli­gi­bil­i­ty are fol­low­ing the famil­iar pat­tern of the past 7½ years – they’re all being tossed by the courts for lack of stand­ing and jus­ti­cia­bil­i­ty.  Thus, we now focus pri­mar­i­ly on the “sov­er­eign cit­i­zen” move­ment, the so-called “patri­ot” move­ment, and on var­i­ous cur­ren­cy reval­u­a­tion scams.

How­ev­er, our com­mu­ni­ty does fol­low many oth­er top­ics, from the 2016 pres­i­den­tial race to tech­nol­o­gy and sci­ence and math­e­mat­ics, and from the lat­est books and TV shows to the innu­mer­able trag­ic mass shoot­ings in this great nation.

We have these things most­ly in com­mon: Most, but not all of us are Democ­rats. Most, but not all of us have col­lege degrees, and in many cas­es advanced degrees. Most, but not all of us are lib­er­als.  Most, but not all of us live in the Unit­ed States, though we have many mem­bers in oth­er coun­tries. We have a lot of lawyers, due to the many, many law­suits the birthers had in the past.  But we also have pro­fes­sion­als from many oth­er walks of life. Our mem­bers have a vast store­house of infor­ma­tion and expe­ri­ences. Plus snark. Our snark is the best.

The heart of our com­mu­ni­ty is our forum.
