Your favorite political and law blog is now on Telegram.
What’s Telegram, you ask? It’s a messaging app that offers end-to-end encryption, making it somewhat more private and secure than other social media platforms and messaging apps. Even better, there are no Big Tech overlords just waiting to de-platform speech they don’t like.
You’ve certainly noticed The Great Disappearing of conservatives from popular sites like Facebook and Twitter. They were either forced off because they dared to have an opinion outside the mainstream or they left willingly, leaving the toxic cesspools behind. Many of them have opted to use apps like Telegram to stay in touch with likeminded folks or to follow their favorite news sources.
That’s one of the reasons we’re adding Telegram to our toolbox — we want to keep in touch with those of you who’ve rather wisely vacated social media. We’ll still be on Twitter, Facebook, Parler and Instagram — for now — and we’ll still be sending out our daily newsletter. Telegram gives us an additional direct connection to our readers and supporters.
Let’s be honest, we also need to have a Plan B for if/when we’re forced off mainstream platforms. A recent report from Freedom House shows that internet freedom in the U.S. declined last year for the fifth consecutive year, with America falling out of the top ten ranking for global internet freedom.
Things are not trending well for independent thought. Every right-leaning news site needs a digital bug out plan, and Telegram is part of ours.
We’re just getting started on Telegram and will be posting twice a day with our most popular stories. We’d love for you to follow us over there and help us grow our channel by sharing our content with your contacts and channels.
