This is me when I launched Citizen Free Press…

NEWS JUNKIES -- CHECK OUT OUR HOMEPAGE

Yours truly when I started Citizen Free Press three years ago — Still haven’t had a day off

 

Happy Labor Day!

 

August traffic numbers came in today — 54 million pageviews.

 

Up 21% over record July numbers.

 

Thank you, awesome readers!

 

 


 

 

After reading comments, allow me to clarify — That is not me jumping off the cliff.

 

It’s a metaphor for launching this site with nothing.

 

And I’m no longer 16 years old, as the photo shows below.

 

Someone thought it was a current photo. Bless your heart.

Well Kane, Happy Labor Day. 18 hour days, that’s some labor amigo. As someone who also has run a business ( most of my life) I know how hard you have to work to make a success of it. And success you have had. I was lucky enough to find CFP very early on, and I’ve rarely seen anything grow like your operation in my 71 years. Your readers appreciate this community more than words can express. Thanks, and maybe put CNN and MSNBC out of business after you bury Drudge. All the best, C

Thanks, Kane. I drop by a couple of times a day and almost always find something interesting and true. It’s one of the few honest websites left. Yeah, you’ve got a point of view. It happens to match mine.

I hope u get a day off someday and I hope u never sell out like drudge. You could probably sell CFP for” a million dollars ” but we hope u dont. Long live CFP!

It really is the best “open” line Friday every day with the open forum. CFP is like having a thousand citizen reporters scanning news sites and “grabbing” interesting stories for posting at CFP. Kane decides if it warrants its own thread.

Last week CFP posted a story about the sexualization of an eleven-year-old in the pending release of the movie “Cuties.” That was mid-afternoon. That evening, during the latter part of the Tucker show, Tucker showed the same clip and story. The movie was pulled. I checked and no other “major” news site covered it besides CFP at that time. I’d like to believe CFP was a driving force to get the movie pulled from Netflix. It helped I’m sure.

Drudge is now working as the head starter at Kentucky Downs, He just started Race 5 when horses were still being loaded into the gate. People who bet the Pick 3-4-5 took a brutal beating (one Pick 3 paid eighty CENTS! 09-07-20).

Off Topic: KANE, There was an earlier story here: ” ‘Amazon is filled with fake reviews and it’s getting harder to spot them’ [CNBC] PUBLISHED SUN, SEP 6 20209:00 AM EDT Katie Schoolov.”

There was no comment box attached to the story, just a feed to CNBC.

Kane, I’m glad you brought this up. However, if this JUST occurred to the CNBC Einsteins, that means they’ve been asleep at the switch FOREVER.

Amazon A DECADE AGO, featured, in my estimate, at least FIFTY MILLION fake reviews. Imagine what the number is today (09/07/20)!

I know because with four other book readers, we went after one of the worst fake reviewers, who turned out to be a complete nobody compared to the huge crooked outfits that regularly posted fake Amazon product reviews.

And most obviously, the vast majority of the fake reviews are from CHINA.

Meanwhile, Amazon’s world-wide corrupt Communist lackey-censors have no objection to FAKE reviews. They’ve been busy suspending or outright obliterating the accounts of honest, candid reviewers.

Tell the truth about crappy products, and WHAM!

One minute, you’re alive, the next, you no longer exist.

I can see how you got that wrong. Drudge is actually working as a Fluffer at Kentucky Downs, getting the stallions ready for stud services. Open wide Matt.

I thought Drudge Report was owned by someone else. It’s the only reason for the Drudge about-face that makes sense.

Hence all of these profound, deep, liberty loving, thinking people flocking to CFP.

But lets talk about Kane. Dude, I love what you’ve done, and I hope it continues to grow. My desire for CFP TO grow is the main reason I’ve challenged you so much. We are passionate here. Some of the madcap violence advocates have driven me nuts, but obviously you are a free speech advocate, so you’ve allowed it.

I know it’s your passion, and as such, long days and full work weeks might not FEEL like work. However, you can burn out. Maybe Matt Drudge did, and cashed in. So please do us all a(nother) favor: pace yourself. TAKE a day off once in a while. You deserve it.

Thanks Htos, btw, for that amazing list. (Lemme guess: mostly owned by China?)

Excellent website, particularly after Drudge disappoints. Perhaps consider adding a email link for tips, as well as searing off any ties to Cloudfront, Google or Amazon for hosting services or ads. 100 percent Independent website should be the goal, much as the USA should have no dependence on China.

Drudge sold his website for a pretty penny to a group of lib nutball writers. That’s why it is letting you down.

Kane – Thank you for getting rid of that ‘better than Drudge Report’ line that was on your site for way too long. I want to take credit for the recommendation to shit can it but what it showed me was that you listen to your readers and take action. This is why you are my GO TO site for news – and you have some serious competition out there. 54 Million – make it 64 Million next month, America.

My man Kane, you are a true hero in my quest to finding solid truth online!! Thank you making the news so interesting and relevant with your constant linking to Twitter and YouTube.

I am a Donald Trump junkie and I watch him live on TV as it happens. I appreciate the direct video feeds you link to. I get so annoyed when I am watching Fox News, CNN, or other networks that break away, they start chiming in and chatting as he is speaking. I like hearing from him unfiltered and I wished that I could find a network that didn’t constantly interrupt.

RSBNetwork.com, C-SPAN, and Whitehouse.gov, ABCNews Live Online, and Fox News Video, are the few that are left where you can still watch unfiltered.

I was fortunate to be sent to Soesterberg AB Netherlands 88-90, F-15’s. I was a Jet Mech for over a dozen yrs. and loved the work. TDY to Nitburg also. Europe was crazy back then… Went to Germany as an adult it was great to see places I saw in the 60’s. My Dad was there in Ger. twice. Late 50’s and late 60’s. We were PCS ing back to the states when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. Saw my parents getting interviewed on the local news coming out of NCO club when they landed. Crazy times. Would love to visit again someday when this crap gets figured out.
