Clearing up the fog of confusion

When communication breaks down, fighting starts. Nobody wants violence. I started CFFS in 2018 when it became apparent that Big Tech was censoring people/organizations in tandem with each other, suggesting some type of backchannel communication to target certain people. Since then, the First Amendment has been under the most egregious attack in our nation's history.

  • Gmail Sends Up To 77% Of Conservative Email To Spam Folder

    We frequently hear that email gets lost in the so-called "Junk Mail" folder or not even delivered at all. Now we know one big reason why this is happening: Google's Gmail is flagging email it doesn't want you to see so that it diverts as spam directly to the proverbial round file. It doesn't matter if the email was originally sent from a Gmail account or not; it is enough to just pass through a Gmail server to receive the "tag". 

    This is a most outrageous violation of Free Speech and the First Amendment that we have ever seen, and it is almost impossible to get around it. Gmail currently captures at least 38 percent of total worldwide market share for email services.

  • Propaganda: Breaking The Chains Of 'Mass Formation'

    This pivotal article highlights the four necessary criteria for "mass formation" to take place, what it looks like, what the outcomes are and most importantly, what can be done about it. Controlling the global narrative through propaganda is a key part as it intentionally crushes free speech with lies and deceit. The only antidote is more speech and transparency at all levels, which is key to the CFFS mission. - CFFS Editor

    The Courageous Story Of The White Rose

    Sophie Scholl was a young nonviolent university student, appealing only to the hearts and minds of fellow citizens to return to their conscience, to abhor evil and to reclaim Free Speech. It wasn't her choice to be tried in an idiotic and irrational kangaroo court, much less to be convicted and then immediately executed by guillotine. Nevertheless, she gave her life in defense of Freedom and Liberty. Sophie's last recorded words just before her execution were "How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to give themselves up individually to a righteous cause."

    The Globalist Revolution Renews Attacks, Aims To End Free Speech

    Considering the renewed and intensified attacks on Free Speech, Citizens for Free Speech is doubling its efforts to defend and protect the First Amendment from annihilation.

    Anyone who thinks there will be a return to normal in America will soon meet the ugly reality that the attacks on American sovereignty and Constitution have only just begun. The globalists who are now openly declaring war on America will not stop until we thoroughly and completely reject them.

  • Blaylock On Vaccines: What You Need To Know For Informed Consent

    Informed Consent is a huge Free Speech issue because of massive censorship and denial of information that should be freely provided to all citizens.

    Prior to taking any unapproved drug, you have the right to receive a broad and complete spectrum of information about the potential effects of those drugs on your body, in order for you to give “informed consent” or to refuse. Dr. Blaylock wrote this especially for this purpose.

    For anyone contemplating vaccination for the COVID virus, this is the essential information that you will not receive from your doctor or health care professional. However, all of the information presented here is already in the public domain and readily available if you know where to look for it. Dr. Blaylock has that knowledge and is sharing it with you! - CFFS Editor

  • Free Speech Has Legal And Ethical Confines, Propaganda Does Not

    The non-profit organization that I founded in 2018, Citizens for Free Speech, is weary of the constant propaganda that all speech is protected by the First Amendment, no matter how vile, ignorant or deceptive it might be. It’s time to set the record straight and put some sanity back into the First Amendment and our exercise of those rights.

  • Biden Administration Ramping Up For New Battle Over Net Neutrality

    Their appears to be a new initiative sweeping in with the Biden Administration. Namely, to take over the basic infrastructure of the Internet and to ramp up the intensity of censorship of any narrative other than their own. The faux warring between Congress and Big Tech obscures the fact that they are both on the same page, but Congress wants even more censorship.

    Brochure Distribution

    It is very effective and important to distribute the Dr. Blaylock brochure, Face Masks Post Serious Risks to the Healthy. To date, members have passed out tens of thousands all over the nation, and we constantly get positive feedback from recipients on how much it has helped them. Keep a good supply of brochures on hand and do not hesitate to hand them out. Here are some ideas for you to keep in mind:

    • When someone has their mask below their nose - They are half-way there to taking it off. This type of person is almost always a willing recipient of a brochure, and will often show it to others.
    • When someone isn't wearing a mask at all - Give them a brochure and encourage them to join Citizens for Free Speech. They will often be thrilled to find some like-minded people. 
    • When you are out and about - Leave a brochure on the table, on the couch/chair in the waiting room, in a shopping cart, etc.
    • When you see someone struggling with wearing a mask - People who are short of breath or have other medical conditions definitely need to have a brochure.
  • Congress v. God: Equality Act Sets Up Religious War

    The First Amendment is very clear:

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    How to Organize Peaceable Assemblies

    The Great American Mask Rip Off (GAMRO)

    GAMRO is a peaceful demonstration of CFFS members exercising their First Amendment rights by displaying motivational and educational signs on busy streets in their communities. Demonstration size is purposely small, with 12-18 people comprising a "squad" for each geographic location. The ideal shift time will be 2 hours of daylight, preferably in the afternoon and well before dusk. No nighttime activities should be scheduled. 

    Any CFFS Volunteer can decide to be a Squad Leader. A Leader will be responsible for soliciting and guiding the Squad members into action. These responsibilities will primarily include, 

    1. Recruiting, screening and communicating with volunteers who will fill the Squad
    2. Securing and managing collateral such as signs and literature
    3. Posting Meetup information on the CFFS site where Squad members can RSVP for a given demonstration date
    4. Providing training and orientation for Squad members prior to a street event
    5. Providing situational awareness during the event to protect the event and members of the Squad.

    GAMRO events will stick to public sidewalks, staying off of private property, while facing street traffic as people drive by. The message we display will be directed exclusively to passers-by.

    Since the object of the Great American Mask Rip Off is to encourage un-masking, Squad members should not wear masks. 

    We do not wish to dispute with any business that serves the public, and will not enter any business premises for the purpose of protest. We do not wish to engage with law enforcement, nor otherwise draw attention to ourselves.

    GAMRO events are not suitable for open carry of firearms. If a Squad member shows up while openly carrying a firearm (legal in most states, of course) and refuses stow the firearm out of sight, then the event should be immediately cancelled and disbanded. Legally allowed or permitted concealed carry is not a problem. The Squad Leader must be sure to advise all Squad members of our policies in advance of every event. Again, our mission is to reduce fear through education and motivation.

    Sign graphics suitable for large-format sighs will be made available at no charge for all GAMRO events. Local Squad Leaders can download desired images and transmit to a local sign maker for production. Graphics are designed for a 24"x30" foam board and are very light weight to carry for two hours per event. 

    Some sign graphics that we are currently using in Phoenix are pictured below. We will be creating additional images and on request, some for your particular state.
