New Wikipedia project seeks to “aggregate facts found in news articles” to scrub out the media bias.

“This is citizen journalism re-envisioned,”

“We do not aggregate articles; we aggregate facts which we find in articles.”

PS
Let me add that this is what Paul Thompson has done with History Commons and The Complete 9/11 Timeline, which is the go-to source for research on the topic. Although, lately the sites have been down — denial of service attacks?

Some of us have been hollering about this linear cliff dive to police state totalitarianism for a lot of years.  Others play video games all day.

This video is what the police state looks like.  It’s unconstitutional.  There are no warrants.  There is no reasonable suspicion.  This is treating the citizens like criminals in their own homes arbitrarily, and if it is not opposed immediately, it is the end of the United States as a republic.  Oddsmakers are probably not giving the constitution and democracy much benefit of the doubt in Vegas right now.

Here is what the supreme court said about martial law practices in the past:

“Those great and good men foresaw that troublous times would arise when rulers and people would become restive under restraint, and seek by sharp and decisive measures to accomplish ends deemed just and proper, and that the principles of constitutional liberty would be in peril unless established by irrepealable law. The history of the world had taught them that what was done in the past might be attempted in the future. The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times {121} and under all circumstances. No doctrine involving more pernicious consequences was ever invented by the wit of man than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies of government. Such a doctrine leads directly to anarchy or despotism, but the theory of necessity on which it is based is false, for the government, within the Constitution, has all the powers granted to it which are necessary to preserve its existence, as has been happily proved by the result of the great effort to throw off its just authority.”
–U.S. Supreme Court, Ex Parte Milligan, 71 U.S. 2 (4 Wall.), (1866)

Those instituting a police state right now should be impeached for treason.
