October Surprise is a political news and commentary blog that takes a critical look at U.S. politics and how it is influenced by intelligence, security services, and private interests. We regularly present opinions written by various sectors of society about government operations, para-politics, and scandals.

Owned by UBD Media, a non-profit organization of political analysts and former White House journalists, this online political resource is not beholden to any party or political group. We do not accept and receive funding from corporate entities and private individuals to prevent tainting our objectivity when covering the news. Neither do we ask for funding or grants from foundations. We maintain non-affiliation with any group or party.

Any opinions expressed on this blog belong only to the authors and do not necessarily reflect the collective view of the editorial board of October Sunrise. Everyone is welcome to submit their opinion pieces as long as it does not contain libelous and offensive remarks. All submissions sent to us are subject to editing and quality checks.
