A week ago today my website Atlas Shrugs was hit with a massive DDoS. I wanted to update you on what’s been happening. The affects of the attack suffered last Thursday were crippling. The fall-out is still ongoing.
We tried to go back online yesterday but it failed. My web developer was out of his depth and I have brought in two new companies that specialize in this kind of situation.
In the meantime, I have set up a temporary blog at Typepad, AtlasShrugs.com and will write and publish from there. It’s temporary but stable. As you can see from this morning’s newsletter the links work.
This attack demonstrates the war on truth, the war on freedom. The site is critical in covering what is really happening in the world. There are well-funded forces working to silence the voices of truth and freedom.
The site was targeted because of its message and its unprecedented growth.
In the wake of the roiling jihad across the world, people are looking for answers. Now. Which is why what Atlas does is so very critical in the information battle-space. And the relentless forces of evil mean to see that good folks don’t have access to it. We will not let that happen.
Please consider a contribution to help get Atlas back online, here. Or you can mail your donation to:

For those of you who have contributed, G-d bless you and thank you.
I am on it. I will not rest. Bear with me and give me a few more days.
