We:

-Help a few people and organizations that serve specific charitable, educational or humanitarian purposes,

-Produce and support nonpartisan research on diverse topics.

The following is some of our research:

  1. 9/11 and related events: A searchable database in timeline format, of over 7,350 sourced quotes, covering events seemingly related to 9/11 such as oil, George W. Bush, Saddam Hussein, al Qaeda, our subsequent invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, torture, and much more.

  2. Barack Obama: Information and facts covering his birth, school, early years, and presidency, 975 pieces of legislation, 36 signing statements, 200 executive orders, 2 vetoes, 82 pardons and commutations, 841 proclamations, 403 memoranda, and 3,246 speeches and remarks - from 1/20/2009 through 6/15/2016. (The numbers will be updated at the end of his presidency.)

  3. George W. Bush Information and facts covering his birth, school, early years, and presidency, 1,831 pieces of legislation, 168 signing statements, 289 executive orders, 12 vetoes, 193 pardons and commutations, 939 proclamations, 1,093 memoranda, and 4,184 speeches and remarks - 8 years from 1/20/2001 through 1/19/2009.

  5. The three Richard A. Clarke National Scholarly Monograph Competitions: 2011, 2012 and 2013, covering lesson learned from 9/11; effective, altenative means of preventing violent extremism; and are drone attacks moral or legal?
     
  6. The U.S./Cuban Embargo: A searchable database, in timeline format, containing over 600 sourced quotes about Cuba and the U.S. embargo of Cuba from government officials, journalists, authors and others.

  7. Ralph Nader and the Florida butterfly ballots' probable impact on the 2000 US Presidential Election: A modest paper based primarily on math.

  8. Voterinfo.org: A vision, that needs funding, that a national organization should be set up to produce comprehensive nonpartisan voter information covering all things that can be voted on in local, state and national elections.

  9. Who funds the NRA? A look at who funds The National Rifle Association (NRA). 

  10.  The brains of Conservatives and Liberals are different: 20 peer-reviewed neuroscience studies show that liberals and conservatives process the same data differently.
We look forward to your comments and criticisms.
