HELP CFP EXPAND — DONATE HERE

 

Donations are doing exceptionally well. We are more than halfway (now 92%) to our goal in just 15 days of fundraising. I appreciate every dollar, and your money will be used to help CFP grow, as outlined below.

 

For new readers, this is the first time in the 42-month history of CFP that I have ever allowed donations. And CFP has never run any ads of any sort. Ever. Just to be clear, this site has never asked for donations until 10 days ago. I have never taken a salary or earned a dime from this site. And I have covered all server costs out of pocket for 42 months.

 

Here’s where your donations will be spent…

 

330+ readers have signed up for recurring monthly donations.

 

So far 9000+ people have donated which is ~ 3% of our daily readership of 340,000.

 

Thank you. I love you all.

 

This is your Citizen Free Press.

 

 


 

 

If you wish to send by mail, make checks payable to:

 

Citizen Free Press

PO Box 568

Ellettsville, IN 47429

 

 


 

 

You can donate here…

 

Thank you!

So I received a distribution from my trust fund today and now have a little extra cash. I’ll be mailing out a check for $250 tomorrow to the P.O. Box.

??????? Question for Kane: If I send a small package to the P.O. Box will someone sign for it? Can you receive packages at this address? No ticking or white powder leaking out. Just a “manly” knick nack for your desk or shelf display.

I’ll check back to see if you have replied. Thanks.

My concern is that this big change will result in ‘improvements’ that will completely revamp why we like to come here as compared with other venues and wreck everything. I did chip in, but have some concerns about it contributing to the demise of CFP as we know it.

“So far 9000+ people have donated which is ~ 3% of our daily readership of 340,000.”

Even CFP is a microcosm of our country. The top 3% of readers are the contributors that will keep this site running, while the other 97% will sit back, read and enjoy the benefits of others labor. Of course, there is a small percentage that simply can’t afford to contribute financially for reasons unknown to us. And there will be the usual suspects who will come in and troll because “troller’s gonna troll.”

Just an observation.

This is the case with lots of things. Listener supported radio, church (tithes & making the place run), PTA’s, etc. The cool thing is; if you love the product, you can look at it as an investment in your society/community. Once you realize something is worthwhile, you are technically doing it for the betterment of others. That’a a gift. Do it with a happy heart. (It’ll never change). Teach your children to “give” and the importance of generosity. Cheers!

I notice that the ‘bigger’ CFP becomes it also brings more self-identifying “conservatives” incapable of even “uniting” because always so quick to attack another “conservative” for not being as superiorly conservative as the other.Everyone asking who’s gonna fire the shot heard ’round the world.Just like them ol Commee’s preached about.No trust left in our very own communities.

Kane, we need you to expand because you and a few others are the only light at the end of the tunnel we have. I pray that you can turn your one man crusade into the strongest, most visited “go to” site for the vast army of people like me who feel totally disenfranchised and betrayed by the media. Newsmax is not our cup of tea. They are not true loyalist as you are. May God be at your side during every step of the way as you unfold in the days ahead.

CFP is a wonderful free site. I donated and will continue. One problem is many news organizations publish articles on CFP and demand that you join their organization and allow their ads. In fact they are making money off CFP.

All, am considering abandoning the idea of rallying the CFP readers to the Vietnam War Memorial. There seems to be an event right across from the U.S. Capitol that is well organized by several groups. See: https://wildprotest.com/. Seems like there will be a lot of like-minded people there. Better to mass with as many supporters as possible. Hope to see you there Patriots.

Ellettsville… That is great. I know the place. Been through there plenty in my life. Used to drive through there heading to a Bloomington Bike Shop in the 80’s while in college at ISU and doing triathlons as a young man. Needed a bike that fit the bill and was not a lead sled. Torpado bought two. Amazing! I am a software coder and if you need help contact me at [email protected] which is my secretive identity.

I love this website. Idid do a one time $100.00 donation to show my appreciation of the content. I have zero knowledge as to how these things are started, managed and how the folks gather all this information from the entire planet it seems. Please keep it up and I will do what I can to continue to support this site. Thank you, from just an older conservative reader.

@ Kane, were you able to bring on board the “surprise” person that you were hoping to hire? Thank you for your sacrifices during this long stretch of managing the site with no days off.

Isnt it sad that only 3% of us have donated and everyone else is a freeloader?

Only 3% of church goers tithe. Interesting.

If 10% donated each year, the site could operate endlessly while growing ever more financially powerful and influential. Eventually, Kane could buy CNN!

Hmm, let’s make it rain!

Kane, it goes back to the Revolutionary War– only 3% of the population actually stepped up to fight the British but we still won. As someone who actually made a meaningful contribution to CFP feel like I can comment. Seriously if only 3% of the US population actually steps up here, goes to Washington on the 6th, that is a lot of people. We can change the world with that number.

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
Ulysses by Tennyson

Let the 3% here gather together in DC on January 6th. Let’s do it as lawful assembly under the 1st Amendment. Do it right and lawfully to support our Vice President Trump. We meet at the Vietnam War Memorial at 9:00 am and move to the U.S. Capitol as lawful protest for what has occurred to date but in support of lawful, Constitutional civil Resistance by Pence. I will be there. I hope you CFP readers will do the same. Actions not words, but consistent with our Constitutional rights given to us by our Founders.

I will be there in spirit only. I can’t even make it to the end of my driveway, let alone from the Viet Nam War Memorial to the Capitol. All who attend are taking a great risk in doing so, physically and financially. I appreciate what they are doing every bit as much as I appreciate all who have fought for my freedoms. Peace be with you.

I set up $20 a month. If things are tight, but you spend time here, recommend just set up 5$ a month.

That is about 1$ a week. If you are the 97% and just 10% of the 90% do this it would do well to help out. CFP vs CCP!

Again, to you in the informed remaining 97%, who may be strapped with expences, who can’t assist out of practical responsibility : ‘the tiny amount of a cup of coffee becomes a significant force when it is delivered by legions !!! ‘. We are in an information war!!! A Roman legion consisted of1000 warriors; Citizens Free Press provides the shield against the disinformation being bombarded relentlessly each day. No effort is too small in strengthening the shield.

So, what’s the goal? How much is needed to post other news organizations articles here?

CFP is not a news organization, it is a news aggregate site. Evey article linked here is written by someone else.Are you not getting fed enough Commie News Network here?

I think this is a fair question. With Drudge stabbing us all in the back, we want an open and honest dialogue. How much are you looking to raise? Why be afraid to post your goal? We know you are working hard and we don’t begrudge you a living, even a good living. We just want transparency! That what Trump gives us and the deep state doesn’t. One is honest, warts and all. We love Trump even more because of his warts, as we all have them, and how he doesn’t hide them or try to pretend to be some else. Just be up front with us!!

What is important to realize for so many readers who are strapped for dough, is that small amounts from legions of readers have the numbers to produce significant results. That is the understanding that encouraged me to toss in my $5.; there
is power in donating even the cost of a cup of coffee when legions of patriotic readers grasp this understanding.
