Hello, Steemit! I’m Rachel Blevins, Independent Journalist

Hello, Steemit! My name is Rachel Blevins, and I am an independent journalist from Texas. This is my first Steemit post, and because I have heard numerous good things about this website, I thought I should finally check it out!    

I am passionate about breaking the false left/right paradigm that exists in media and politics, and I strive to create content that challenges existing narratives. The topics I cover include government corruption, foreign policy, police accountability, the drug war, gun rights and mainstream media hypocrisy.   

Many of my videos are centered around the phrase “Why Isn’t Anyone Talking About This?” because I always look for the aspects of a story that are being ignored by traditional media outlets, and I believe the information that is being ignored, buried or is just slipping under the radar can be the most important part of the story.   

Here are a few examples:   

When it comes to government corruption, I believe in calling out the current administration for its policy decisions, no matter which political “party” is in office.   

From a pattern of endless war, to troubling allies, I am passionate about speaking out against the United States’ hypocritical foreign policy.   

I believe in defending the Second Amendment and emphasizing the importance of gun rights.   

I also believe in defending the Fourth Amendment and bringing awareness to the abuses of civil liberties carried out by an increasingly militarized police state.   

I am passionate about speaking out about social issues in areas where hypocrisy from the mainstream media and a mob mentality have clouded public judgment.   

Then there is the miserable failure of an excuse for a “War on Drugs” that has had opposite effect…
