Happy Anniversary AFNN!

Good Morning friends of American Free News Network! The month of May marks 3 years since we published our first article in support of a free and uncensored press. Wow! What a ride. It’s hard to believe just how far  AFNN has come in that short time and from such modest beginnings…from just a few contributors, to over 140 authors who contribute on a sometime basis.

Back in January of 2021, some retired military officers, a few former members of the intelligence community and some private industry folks, decided to push back on what they believed to be a threat to the American Republic. Of course, they were concerned about Big Tech using its quasi-monopoly to squelch conservative viewpoints.

This state of affairs really got going during the 2016 Presidential race, when the legacy media and their Big Tech enablers figured out that Donald John Trump was much more than a TV reality show host. Despite their efforts, he defeated the criminal crone from Chappaqua. Matters came to a head back in January 2021. It had become well apparent to all but an ostrich, that Big Tech was using its monopoly position to restrict the communication of conservative voices…to the point of financially coercing conservative platforms to retract stories that were true to fact.

We continue to see this in their open and notorious attempt to interfere in the 2024 election by supporting the sham lawfare being waged against former President Trump.

American Free News Network is immune from such financial coercion because our writing, editorial and management staffs consist entirely of volunteers. The only people being paid, are the web hosting company and independent contractors, who do the technical part of keeping the website working, and help promote our efforts.

Those folks do need to be paid. That’s where you come in. As we do not accept advertising, we rely on voluntary donations from you, our readers and supporters, to pay the bills. You may have noticed that in addition to a lack of pop-ups on our site, you don’t get weekly-daily-hourly emails nagging you for donations. We have a discrete button on top of the home page, and some fine print at the bottom of our articles—and this, our once a year plea directly to you, to help keep this machine running.

If you like what we are doing and would like us to continue our efforts, then click the link below and give whatever you can afford…even if it’s only 5 bucks. You can also subscribe to our Substack newsletter (it’s free). If in the (very unlikely, given the current administration) event you got a larger than anticipated IRS refund, or Great Auntie Matilda treated you especially well in her will, nothing says you can’t toss us a few hundred.

In any case, whatever you can help with, we will consider a blessing. AFNN is a 501(c)(3) so unless the IRS has changed the rules in-between the time we wrote this and you read it, your donation should be tax deductible. And what’s better than getting a tax deduction for helping a conservative organization?

Thank you for your continued support and wishes for another successful year.

Editor Emeritus
