Patrick Wood published Biden Administration Ramping Up For New Battle Over Net Neutrality in Blog 2021-03-29 13:27:29 -0700
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.Read more
Patrick Wood published CFFS Condemns Cancel Culture after Law Professor Resigns over Compelled Speech in Press 2021-03-25 20:40:47 -0700
Mesa, AZ – Georgetown law professor David Batson sat in his chair and said nothing as his university colleague analyzed the performance of her students and lamented the lower ranking of some of her African-American students. As it turns out, remaining silent was his fatal mistake.Read more
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.

About this Masterclass
Citizen Ninja's are ordinary people who stand up to power to make a difference in their community. They don't wait for others to speak up. Instead, Citizen Ninjas step out of their comfort zone to nimbly challenge powerful entities that disenfranchise the public and reduce citizen's power.
This is a masterclass for budding activists who want to make an impact in the community but don't know how to start or what to do to engage in local politics. It tells how to use the Citizen Ninja powers -- civic knowledge, self-restraint, self-assertion and self-reliance -- for maximum influence.
In the training you will learn how to:
- Conquer Fear
- Be Assertive
- Peg Your Audience
- Ask a Question
- Make a Statement
- Neutralize Your Opponent
The masterclass is 8 sessions offered live every other Monday at 5 PM (Arizona Time). But you can join anytime and watch the video replay from past sessions.

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.”Read more

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,
- Recruiting, screening and communicating with volunteers who will fill the Squad
- Securing and managing collateral such as signs and literature
- Posting Meetup information on the CFFS site where Squad members can RSVP for a given demonstration date
- Providing training and orientation for Squad members prior to a street event
- 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.

Patrick Wood published CFFS Backs Tennessee Bill Outlawing Businesses from Requiring Masks, Tests, Vaccines in Press 2021-02-23 10:18:28 -0700
Mesa, AZ – Unconstitutional requirements for consumers to wear face masks in privately-owned businesses that serve the public may be a thing of the past in Tennessee, if state legislators approve a newly introduced bill in the state house. Citizens for Free Speech (CFFS), a nationwide non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the First Amendment, hailed the legislation as being an enormous step toward restoring the constitutional rights of citizens in all states.Read more
Patrick Wood published Scientism, Not Leftism, Underlies All Big-Tech Censorship in Blog 2021-02-09 14:49:43 -0700
There is a very dark religion at the base of both Technocracy and Transhumanism. That is Scientism. Once understood, the massive censorship at the hands of Big Tech starts to make perfect sense.
Scientism was first proposed by the French philosopher Henri De Saint-Simon (1760-1825). He wrote,
“A scientist, my dear friends, is a man who foresees; it is because science provides the means to predict that it is useful, and the scientists are superior to all other men.”Read more

Mesa, AZ – After several congressional hearings over discriminatory censorship practices in social media produced little to no meaningful changes, Governor Ron DeSantis has made Florida the first state to propose real accountability for Big Tech’s politically-driven suppression of speech. Patrick Wood, Executive Director and founder of Citizens for Free Speech (CFFS) and a staunch critic of Silicon Valley’s ongoing assault on the First Amendment rights of millions of American Citizens, cheered the aggressive move by the Florida governor.Read more

“There ought to be a law!” Why, that would fix our problems, wouldn’t it? We wouldn’t have to lift a finger. Let somebody else do it. That’s what we pay them for, isn’t it?
Unfortunately, this deceptive thinking allows us to escape any personal responsibility for doing anything about the things we don’t like, and this is wrong.Read more

Mesa, AZ – The blatant assault on free speech currently being carried out by America’s largest technological corporations is about more than just stifling political dissent; it’s about advancing the agenda of globalist technocrats with designs on seizing the world economy, according to Patrick Wood, founder and Director of Citizens for Free Speech.Read more
Patrick Wood published Decoding Social Media Censorship by the Issues in Blog 2021-01-22 12:12:24 -0700
Free speech is under ferocious attack by Big Tech social media platforms. This is generally viewed as an attack against conservatives on that basis alone. Consequently, the reverse side of that coin views Big Tech as left-wingers in cahoots with Democrat operatives, both of whom have ganged up to gain a political advantage.Read more

From the day that I started to write about globalization 45 years ago, my co-author, the late Professor Antony C. Sutton, drilled into my brain “Follow the money, follow the power.” This has served me well throughout the years.
Today, we must also add, “Follow the DATA, follow the power.” Of course, data is money and it is the addiction of Technocrats everywhere.Read more

Mesa, AZ – Parler, the popular social media application preferred by conservative-minded users, has been taken offline by Big Tech in the most blatant assault yet on freedom of speech in America. The CEO’s of Apple and Google announced on January 8 that the Parler app would be removed from their online app stores unless Parler moderators agreed to adopt censorship standards consistent with those of the two largest social media companies, Facebook and Twitter.Read more
Patrick Wood published Recognizing the coordinated attacks on the First Amendment in Blog 2021-01-10 13:58:20 -0700
America’s foundational rights are set out in the First Amendment. Without the freedoms expressed in that amendment, there is nothing to protect us from totalitarianism. Yet we are currently in the midst of a very sustained attack on the right, and the attack is coming via methods too many fail to recognize.Read more
Mesa, AZ – The views of conservative Christians in the United States should be silenced, according to a fringe group of agnostic and atheistic Democrat activists who have attracted the support of numerous elected congressional Democrats. The Secular Democrats of America PAC has publicly targeted Catholics and evangelical protestants for censorship, and has sent a 28-page document to the Biden-Harris transition team demanding their First Amendment rights be revoked.Read more
