We are sincerely thankful for the patronage and readership of so many followers around the world.
When Dodie and I began CleverJourneys in May 2020, we came loaded with experience. My first big interview was with Clint Eastwood in 1974. I was fresh out of high school and very motivated after scoring that opportunity.
When I decided to return to writing 12 years ago, it was obvious that print media and journalism in general were lying and dying. Little did I realize it was worse than I thought.
I wrote over 2,100 articles for Examiner, but their Colorado editors kept censoring me. I learned their workshifts and would post conservative articles when certain leftist editors were not there.
Within a year I became the top Texas “Examiner” and remained in the Top 5 position (often #1 of the week) in the United States until AXS Entertainment bought Examiner out.
Soon I was interviewing celebrity singers touring Texas such as George Strait, B.B. King, Kenny Rogers, Merle Haggard, George Jones and writing news, history and reviews for AXS and The Rowdy.
For several years I wrote for them and started NewsLegit.com until a competitor bought me out. I had to wait a year before I could start a new site per the agreement. Over time, I learned much about the blogging business.
As newlyweds in December 2019, Dodie brought along a keen eye for detail and the wisdom of 38+ years as an RN. She’s absolutely smart and the best copy editor I’ve ever worked with.
We started out hoping to get 25 hits a day. On a good day we’d see a hundred. Steadily we found our niche (Dodie calls it “our groove”). As we roadtripped the United States during the pandemic summer, we learned so much about what Americans–decent citizens–were thinking and doing. It was not even close to what the media and Hollywood portrayed.
This helped us considerably find our groove…and success.
With 11 years of building relationships and credible sources in government, politics, law enforcement, military, civil service and yes, in entertainment, we built our readership to hundreds and then thousands a day. Recently we surpassed the 9,600 views an hour record—that’s over 160 hits a minute.
We couldn’t do it without each of you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
In case you missed them, here is our first official countdown of the ten most read CleverJourneys articles of the year. Little did any of us know what we were all in for during 2020. God Bless and thank you again.
$400 Million Via Swiss Bank Account Sent to Dominion From Chinese Government Tied Firm Before Election
Did the sons of former Vice President Joe Biden and longtime Massachusetts state Senate President Billy Bulger aid in stealing U.S. Military secrets to China?
Michigan Secretary of State Faces Serious Election Fraud Allegations Due to Lies Proven by Forensic Investigation
The forensic audit of election Dominion Voting System has proven Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson lied in her public statements and on her office’s official website about the integrity and certification of the state’s 2020 election.
The company with all the voting machines that “glitch” to create more votes for Biden is “Dominion Voting Systems.”
Their DC lobbyist is Nancy Pelosi’s longtime aide. The company hired Brownstein Farber Hyatt & Schreck earlier this year. Nadeam Elshami, Pelosi’s former chief of staff, is one of the lobbyists on the account.
More intelligence and reports are coming out to help Americans connect the dots of the election fraud carried out by Deep State operatives.
This information could also explain why Defense Secretary Mark Esper was terminated by President Donald Trump last week.
We know that Dominion and SmartTech are two companies that have played a roll in manipulating vote ballot fraud in key swing states in the 2020 U.S. presidential election. These are foreign companies.
A CIA Data Analyst Officer, stationed at the Frankfurt, Germany secret cyber farm raided by U.S. Special Forces last month, has indicated President Donald J. Trump won the 2020 election legitimately.
Officer Mathew Billings has lawyered up after he was terminated from his position while attempting to relay data, documents, and what he witnessed to the media.
Fans from around the world are demanding to know how disrespectful thugs were allowed to criminally deface the historical wall and sidewalk in front of Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.Photo: Billy Stallings
Knowing the value of Elvis Presley’s mansion, questions are being directed at Elvis Presley Enterprises and local government how security could be so lax to permit the vandalism.
Presley, who was raised and grew up in Black neighborhoods of Tupelo, Mississippi, was known for his kindness and unracial love for Blacks.
George Soros and his Open Society fellow Democracy Alliance billion-millionaire partners directly funded the corrupt campaign of Joe Biden and the Democrats more than any other entities.
He is the largest single contributor to Antifa, Black Lives Matter and Disrict Attorneys across the United States. He literally controls many Democrat and Republican politicians. His tentacles even reach some liberal minded judges.
We have just returned from a 32-day, 4500 mile roadtrip (June 19-July 21) from the Texas Hill Country through much of the South, Washington D.C. for July 4th, to part of the Midwest and back.
Our preconceived ideas from news and the continually changing regulations around COVID-19 were blown away with the reality we experienced. It actually restored our faith in the goodness of America.
Will Donald J. Trump be America’s last president?
If most Americans were familiar with what the French term “coup d’etat” means, they would likely understand the question.
I first heard of it many years ago (1970s) while researching and interviewing people regarding the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
The Secret, Behind the Scenes Government Force Set Up by the Democrats is Ready to Take Over
The Reality Is Blatant
Most Americans can sense something is seriously wrong. It appears so horrific that some can’t believe it’s actually happening.
