FastZone is a conservative news website under development, originating from Louisville, Ky. From here FZ news coverage expands to the Louisville Metro Statistical Area, Kentucky, the nation and the world. The site will include original articles, internet news stories and much more.
FastZone's blog posts began to appear in the spring of 2022 on Fastzone.Substack.com/ to help fill the deficit in conservative news and investigative journalism, primarily in Louisville and Kentucky. Some post previews are in view— the preview's orange RSS icon, top right, will take you to the full article.
Real news is the canary in the coal mine
FZ’s service mark, Keep Your Eye on the Ball, superimposes the ball of the world on the baseball as the most important focus— the world and its many places, nearby to international. We become informed about trends and developments that affect our lives by tracking the news, enabling us to know the score and prioritize.
Today, that is harder with freedom of speech curtailed in social media and local mainstream narratives following an agenda best described as liberal.
In an encroaching totalitarian state, conservative investigative research and journalism can be dangerous and readers are accomplices. Yet without some push back— the die is cast, so let’s be engaged in current affairs!
For any not familiar with Western Civilization idioms, the die is cast was coined by Julius Caesar in 49 BC. It signifies that events have passed the point of no return.
The BC centuries were before the birth of Jesus Christ, now also termed BCE, ‘Before the Common Era.’ BCE and CE reference calendar eras, not people, and calendar weeks start with Monday, not Sunday. Will AD and BC be eliminated and forgotten?
Our Promise and Plan
- When we publish an alarming post or series, we will not urge any specific action by readers unless we know of a responsible and non-violent means of showing concern.
- Comments are welcome, generally speaking, and will be published though not in real time.
- A FZ weekly news e-letter will be emailed to subscribers; news alerts will be sent by text or email.
For more information on the current owner, see here.
These are the goals for 2023:
- Build out the news sections of the website
- Attain 300 news e-letter subscribers - or more
- Begin a stream of ads to welcome financial support
FastZone is likely to remain an English-language news site, seeking to accommodate all readers. Though English is not the language spoken by most people in the world, it is ranked first as their second language. ASIDE: Louisville has many immigrants. Did you know they may become USA citizens without any fluency in English?
With enough staff and support, Fastzone could rival the Courier-Journal. We are open to OpEds and guest writers.
Thank you for your interest in FastZone.
