This is the resurrected Fellowship of the Minds, the blog that WordPress arbitrarily and without warning and just cause took down in the dark early hours on August 15, 2018.
What WordPress did is the digital equivalent of burning down an entire library — of tens of thousands of blog-posts in nearly 9 years, many of which are the products of original research and genuine investigative journalism that the lackeys of the corporate MSM no longer undertake.
Although we have the contents of, hopefully, most but not all of those posts, their URLs are no longer valid, which means broken links that will have to be restored one by one — a time-consuming process for which we neither have the manpower nor time nor energy, since we are all unpaid volunteers who blog as a public service and a labor-of-love for God and country. Sadly, therefore, many of our pre-August 15 posts will never be restored, and the broken links never fixed.
FOTM still uses WordPress software, purchased as a $99 Jetpack, because our readers are familiar with the format and features.
We are Conservatives in the undying tradition of America’s Founding Fathers, deeply concerned about the sorry state of our country and the ruinous path our government, political, and cultural elites have taken. That is why we have formed this fellowship of the minds despite our very different backgrounds, but a deep love for God and country in common.
We closely follow political, cultural, and economic news and commentaries on a daily basis. We will sift through the daily news and post the important ones you need to know, especially those from the Alternative Media, together with our unapologetic nonPC editorial comments. We will also alert you to political action: Calling your representatives in Washington, D.C.; rallies, marches, and demonstrations.
We believe that bloggers can and are making a difference. The new technology of the Internet has made us extremely well-informed about politics and what politicians are doing. No longer must we depend on the intermediaries of the corporate mainstream media or the supposed “expert” opinions of paid pundits. The Alternative Media are the Paul Reveres of the 21st century who will save America.
One of the subjects Fellowship of the Minds reports is evil. You will find our posts on the evil that humans do in our “St. Michael’s Prayer Against Evil” page. Our motto is “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” Being squeamish when the evil ones are now in-our-face, is being cowardly and untruthful. If human beings do and say the vilest things, then we should report them, or how would we find out? Doing so doesn’t mean we enjoy reporting or showing the truth. Nor is doing so being unChristian, for God is Truth. Our Lord Jesus Christ certainly knows and sees all the evils that humans do, so much so that at the Garden of Gethsemane, He sweated blood seeing all the sins of humanity. What we at FOTM report is but a tiny sliver.
A downside to keeping up with political news and developments in our time is that sometimes we do feel overwhelmed and discouraged. That is why we intersperse political posts with more light-hearted fare of funnies and animal stories. You can find those posts in our non-political pages — Angels & Saints, Christianity, and Creation.

You are a visitor to our blog, so you should be courteous and civil. A sure way to offend is to insult your host, which is a form of verbal abuse. Comments containing insults against our writers (such as “moron,” “crazy,” “stupid”), blasphemies, and obscenities will be deleted. Threats to do us bodily harm are a federal crime, USC 18.41 Sec. 875(c), punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. Your IP and email addresses will be reported to law enforcement.
Before you leave this page, we suggest that you take the American Civics Literacy Quiz. After you’ve taken the quiz, compare your score to our elected officials by going to “How Elected Officials Scored on American Civics Literacy.”
So, welcome to our blog! We hope all like-minded conservatives will join our Fellowship. Together, we’ll fight the good fight to take back our beloved America.
