Welcome to Fogcutters!
An apology from Fogcutters: For several week now a number of links within our site have been down due to undetermined network problems. Administrative access to this site has been limited due to a number of outages by the internet provider, 1and1.com. We are now in the process of migrating pages to another provider while maintaining parallel sites until the migration is completed. Most external links within these pages should now be corrected. If you find any problems, please email us at the e-mail link at the bottom of this page. When the migration is completed we will compare both sites for dependability and service. Thank you for your patience.

2 Big "HooRahs" for the public spotlight!
Our First "HooRah": For those who follow the popular media we're sure you're aware that that many in Congress have engaged in "insider trading." This never was a real "secret." Congress knew about how members profited from advance knowledge to make investments in the financial and equity markets. Once this arrogant behavior came to light, 170+ house members jumped on the bill as co-sponsors and the Senate also proposed a companion bill.
UPDATE, 1/30/12 - Senate passed their version of "Stop Insider Trading" and now the House seekis to add land deals, etc. to the ban. Maybe going to the President in March?
A Second "HooRah" for the public up-roar to defeat the "Stop Online Piracy Act, SOPA. This terribly draconian piece of legislation undermined our nation's founding princile of "Due Process." The original legislation has been pulled and a far better proposal is now befor Congress. Get a complete view, and personal opinion, on Fogcutter's Action Alert link.
The point is this: Congress will do whatever they feel entitled to do until the public catches on! Public knowledge is power!
Our slogan, “Finding where Truth might be Hiding” is our primary focus – to sort through the massive and confusing information coming at us on the Internet and in our emails. Obviously everyone has their own favorite web sites. That said, Fogcutters searches for unique sites that are sometimes difficult to find among the thousands of similar choices. At Fogcutters we attempt to pre-screen for the best Internet resources for a great variety of information. We try to find the quality, well organized sources and avoid the crazies and dubious links. Fogcutters strives to present information for serious Internet users including political and economic information that is often overlooked or spun by political interests. We present over 200 Internet links to sites that you might find interesting. **

Admittedly, we do have personal opinions and perspectives that are clearly presented. After years of reporting, analyzing, and investigating a variety of problems in a number of industries several essential methodoligies have emerged regarding the investigative process. We hope that our site will reflect the decades of this experience.
We wish here to thank those who have contributed material for inclusion.
