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.

    Restoring Free Speech at Our Universities

    Now that the autumn semester is well underway, it is worth asking whether students have a chance to participate in free and open debate. The short answer is “No, they don’t.” They don’t have a chance to explore unpopular ideas and controversial opinions. They are “protected” from ideas that might make them uncomfortable. What’s being stifled here is more than speech. It’s their education and, with it, their preparation to live in a tolerant society, where fellow citizens hold different views.

  • 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.

    Our Fall CFFS National Town Hall featured Tom DeWeese, American Policy Center


    "The Great Reset:
    What the Elites have Planned for You."


    As a freedom advocate and sustainable development expert, Tom crisscrosses the country educating Americans how to protect their communities from tyrannical policies that erode our civil liberties.

  • 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.
