Special Bilderberg 2008 Report from American Free Press

AFP Sneaks You Past Security for an Exclusive Inside Glimpse of . . .


Put Psychopaths on Trial & Hang Them
By Willis A. Carto o, the international camarilla known as the Bilderberg group met once again, gathered in their secret annual coven, this time among the unsuspecting folk of Virginia. Intensely ignored by the string-pullers of America’s pathetic “free press,” many of the lords of the media were numbered among the transnational mass manipulators, mattoids and professional evildoers, scheming with their fellow sociopaths how to make profit from the distress of the misinformed and manipulated people of this globe. So this is what they call democracy. How many good men—infinitely better men than these scum— have been killed by their direction in criminal military aggression around the world in the name of this sham? How many millions of innocent men, women and children have been killed or hideously wounded in their profitable wars of aggression? Evil is married to darkness. But they are quickly killed by exposure to light. The Founders were clear about it: democracy they branded as the very worst form of government. Naturally, this is why these psychopathic conspirators want to impose it on the people of the world. Evil begets evil. The stink of democracy is evident to anyone with an intellect above that of a scorpion. It is the evil spawn of a diseased media—this entity owned and controlled by shameless profiteers and assorted crooks who would be stealing candy from babies and pulling wings off butterflies if they had not found a lying press a more profitable way to exercise their larcenous and sadistic compulsions. It is high time for people of wholesome instincts around the world to try these useless eaters and, once found guilty, hang them. Let’s do it. # ——


This snapshot of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, taken by patriot photographer Shepherd Johnson, appears to be one of the few photos taken of any of the attendees. Dark glass on the limousines and the long entry drive prevented detection in most instances. Madeleine Albright was caught by a photographer on video emerging from a vehicle. She was not happy to have been captured for posterity and threw a fit.

lobal leaders responded on cue to Bilderberg’s orders to stop the rise in oil prices as Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest supplier, promised on June 22 to increase production as needed. “I would like to state that for the remainder of this year Saudi Arabia is prepared and willing to produce additional barrels above and beyond the 9.6 million barrels per day which we plan to produce in July, if demand for such quantities materialize and our customers tell us they are needed,” Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi told a meeting of officials form more than 30 countries and 25 oil companies. China promised, on June 19, to dramatically increase domestic fuel prices to reduce demand, which reduce costs. The announcement sent oil prices tumbling on global markets, with traders anticipating that world demand would soften in response to reduced consumption by the Chinese. U.S. crude settled down $4.75, to $131.93 on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Iraq officials said they were awarding contracts to several Western companies to help develop its vast resources. Asim Jihad, a spokesman for the Iraqi Oil Ministry, said no-bid contracts would be issued to Royal Dutch Shell, which is always represented at Bilderberg, among others. Powerful world leaders were running like dogs to the whistle immediately after Bilderberg’s decree (AFP June 23, 2008) to put a lid on surging oil prices. Meanwhile, Bilderberg’s world government project suffered another severe setback when Irish voters killed the latest version of the European Constitution. Just three days after Bilderberg concluded its annual secret meeting, on June 11, a top energy bureaucrat said gasoline prices would likely peak at $4.15 a gallon, contradicting previous predictions that the costs would soon exceed $5 a gallon. Guy Caruso, head of the Federal Energy Information Administration, made this prediction at a congressional hearing on energy prices and the future of

oil. Prices are likely to remain close to $4 for a gallon through 2009, he said. UN Secretary-General Ban Kimoon said on June 15 that the king of Saudi Arabia had promised to lower oil prices. Ban spoke with reporters after meeting with King Abdullah in the port city of Jidda during a visit to the world’s largest oil producer. “The king believes that the current oil prices are abnormally high, and he is ready to restore prices to their appropriate levels,” the official Saudi News Agency quoted Ban. The New York Times reported on June 14—six days after receiving its marching orders at Bilderberg—-that unnamed analysts and oil traders briefed by Saudi officials said a production increase of about 500,000 barrels per day is planned. “Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest oil producer, is concerned that sustained high oil prices eventually will slacken the world’s appetite for oil, affecting the kingdom in the long run,” Associated Press reported. This precisely reflects what Bilderberg said in Chantilly. A Bilderberg speaker from Europe had said: “Are we reaching the point of diminishing returns? People who switch from gas hogs to fuel-efficient, small cars are not going to do an instant about-face. And those who convert to public transportation, many of them, are going to stick with the train or bus. We have seen many middle-class families, who grudgingly accepted $3 a gallon, choose to stay home instead of driving to the beaches or mountains. They’re calling them ‘staycations.’ We all take the long view of history. Will forcing gasoline prices even higher increase profits in the long term? Ford has already shut down production of big cars and has many SUVtypes it can’t give away. Ford will not retool overnight.” Finance ministers from the Group of Eight weighed in at their meeting in Japan, issuing a joint statement

These “journalists” attended Bilderberg under a solemn oath to report nothing: Oscar Bronner, Der Standard; Paul Gigot, Wall Street Journal; Donald Graham, Washington Post; Matthias Nass, Die Zelt; Christine Ockrorent, French television and radio world service; Charlie Rose, Rose Communications; Flemming Rose, Jyllands Posten and Vendline von Bredow and Adrian Wooldridge, both of The Economist.

calling for lower oil prices. U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, Jr., who had just left the Bilderberg session, called for oil-producing countries to allow more investment in oil exploration and production. In another blow to Bilderberg’s global ambitions, Irish voters rejected a treaty to make the European Union a superstate by a decisive 53.4 percent to 46.6 percent. A “European Constitution” had been rejected in referendums in France and the Netherlands in 2005. To take effect, all European Union states must approve. After the “constitution” was rejected, European leaders came up with a shorter version providing for the same envisioned superstate but called it a “treaty.” As a “treaty,” France and the Netherlands did not have to submit it for a vote. But Ireland’s constitution required a referendum and Irish voters chose national sovereignty over a European superstate. “It’s a very sad day for the country and for Europe,” said Justice Minister Brian Lenihan. “It is a great day for Irish democracy,” said DeClan Ganley, a businessman who led the anti-treaty forces. ”This is democracy in action . . . and Europe needs to listen to the voice of the people.”

DEFENSE SECRETARY ROBERT GATES Made pitch for support for attack on Iran.

AFP Commends These Patriots for Helping at Bilderberg
Here is just a partial list (in no particular order) of the approximately 100 patriots and independent news outlets who showed up in Chantilly to help expose the Bilderberg meeting. Our thanks go out to all of you, and our apologies to those who we have not mentioned.

Responding to those seeking a way around the Irish rejection, British Foreign Secretary David Milliband said: “The rules are absolutely clear. If all 27 countries do not pass the Lisbon Treaty it cannot pass into law.” Establishing a European Union superstate is a crucial in Bilderberg’s program for a world government. Similar efforts to establish an “American Union” in the Western Hemisphere have similarly bogged down. Bilderberg is on the ropes. Other major topics included: Would the United States get help from Europe if attacks Iran? How should Bilderberg deal with the Ron Paul Revolution? This is related to the problems of gaining approval of “free” trade agreements to establish an “American Union” throughout the Western Hemisphere because of Paul’s “nationalism,” an obscene word in the Bilderberg dictionary. If Bilderberg halts the rise in oil prices, it will be for selfish reasons of profit, not tender concern for one billion people—one-seventh of the Earth’s population—left starving by soaring oil prices. One pointed out that Europeans have long paid much more for gasoline, up to $10 a gallon. “But we’re dealing with Americans here and they’re not only our largest consumer, but a different breed of cat in many ways,” the speaker responded to light laughter. There was more nattering but no direct dissent from his argument, offering hope that Bilderberg will act to prevent a bad situation from getting worse. Most European and some U.S. Bilderberg boys expressed hope that President Bush will not invade Iran during his final months in office, although the administration’s propaganda machine is trying to condition the public mind to accept another war. Defense



Hundreds of brand new “No Trespassing” signs were posted in every nook and cranny of the grounds of the Westfields Marriott in an attempt to keep prying eyes from finding out who was attending Bilderberg. Bilderbergʼs “official” 2008 attendee list could

not be trusted fully. Madeleine Albright, for instance, was not on the official list but was seen through binoculars getting out of her car. At right, itʼs one for the ages: AFP Editor Jim Tucker is actually smiling, amused by the comments of a nearby protester.

INTIMIDATION Protester Adam Aleshire said he was visited at home by Hunter Durham, a special agent of the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service. Durham’s visit was an effort (which failed) to intimidate him, Aleshire said. Durham was in his field office in Dunn Loring, Va. when AFP called, but he would not come to the phone (571-226-9300). To his credit, he called back two days later, but said he was unable to comment. Secretary Robert Gates was not on Bilderberg’s official list of participants, but he was positively identified arriving on Friday, June 6. Gates gave the usual pitch about Iran having a nuclear potential and being a “threat” to all mankind. Gates noted that Shaul Mofaz, Israel’s former defense minister and a candidate for the job of prime minister, told the Hebrew-language newspaper Yediot Ahronot that Israel will attack Iran if Tehran did not abandon its nuclear weapons program. “Attacking Iran, in order to stop its nuclear plans, will be unavoidable,” Mofawz said. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice also asked for an “understanding” of why Bush “can’t take anything (war) off the table when dealing with Iran.” The Europeans were polite but firmly opposed an invasion. Wage a war for Israel? Can’t we care even a little bit about the plight of Palestinians in the occupied lands (referring to the wanton killings of children and civilian women and men?) Where does Iran keep nuclear weapons, in the tomb of Cyrus the Great, emperor of Persia? Gates and Miss Rice were told the United States would “fly solo” in attacking Iran and there would be no help from NATO or European countries. At that same time, Iraq and Iran were having friendly talks on the subject of mutual security. Although Ron Paul was the only presidential candi-

date who would immediately withdraw U.S. troops from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, he is feared and hated by Bilderberg for many reasons. First, Paul would also bring troops home from 130 “peacekeeping” missions and use them to protect America’s borders. But there is much more about Paul that upsets Bilderberg boys and their brother group, the Trilateral Commission, which met in Washington (AFP, May 12, 2008). While Bilderberg is confident it can control the presumed major-party candidates, Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Barack Obama (D-Ill.), they are concerned about the “damage” Paul will inflict on the long-term goal of world government, although he is no longer a candidate for president. The fact that the Ron Paul Revolution is giving the young generation a “political education” that will go beyond the presidential campaign and into the years ahead strikes fear and loathing in Bilderberg hearts. Even as they were being denounced, young Ron Paul supporters were protesting Bilderberg outside the closed gates of the posh Westfields Marriott near Washington Dulles International Airport in Chantilly, Va. Youths for Paul were heavily represented among more than 50 patriots at the palace gate. It was in response to this gathering, which included megaphones, TV and broadcast cameras, that Bilderberg felt pressured into coughing up its lists of participants and agenda. But the fear that Paul is creating new generations who will fight for national sovereignty and against the New World Order has Bilderberg upset. Bilderberg is demanding that nations in the Western Hemisphere “pool their sovereignty” and create a European-style “American Union.” It is to start with a “North America Free Trade Zone” that would eliminate borders between the United States, Mexico and Canada. (Bilderberg is behind on this project; in the mid-1990s they were confident it would be accomplished by the year 2000.) Bilderberg’s discussion of “cyber terrorism” raised

WAS OBAMA THERE? There was much speculation that Barack Obama visited Bilderberg. He was making a public appearance nearby and could easily have dropped by incognito in one of the limos with black windows before a late-night meeting with Sen. Hillary Clinton, but this was never established beyond a doubt. AFP called Obama’s Senate office but was told “I can’t comment on that.” But James Johnson, vice chairman of Perseus, LLC, was definitely present. Johnson serves on a committee charged with advising Obama on his vice presidential choice. the ominous prospect of citizens having microchips inserted into their bodies. “Terrorists” are recruiting “young, white men with blonde hair and blue eyes” to escape detection before they bomb planes and ground sites, one said. Another said the idea is “marketable” because soon people throughout the world would be able to board airplanes and pass through ground security quickly because the chips would immediately identify terrorist threats. But, for this reason, the chips would have all your personal data to be instantly compared at a global data bank. The chip will also be “marketed” as a safety valve. Suppose, for example, you are struck by a car and taken to the hospital unconscious and in critical condition. Your microchip will provide the physician with critical, life-saving information, such as any prescription medications you are taking and your complete medical history. You may survive to live under the constant gaze of Big Brother.

A Cub Reporter’s Experiences at Bilderberg 2008
By Mike Finch red-clad doorman opened the large brass door into a spacious entryway filled with original artwork and antique furnishings, from the rugs on the floor to the chandeliers on the ceiling. Bilderberg began for me in the luxurious Westfields Marriott, two days before the event. I was to be the undercover reporter. The smiling staff that greeted me was like something out of a movie, polite, helpful, and even cheerful. I was waiting for the candelabra to start singing; “be our guest!” it was so posh. I registered and received my key, then walked down a grand hallway to the elevator that brought me to my fourth-floor room. I zigzagged along through the hundred or so hotel rooms on my floor in my wing of the huge hotel and finally arrived. The room was about twice the size of an ordinary hotel room, with a flat-screen television, full size desk, and king-sized, comforter-covered bed with nine pillows piled atop. My room was the lowest quality room available at the hotel, but the highest quality hotel room I had ever stayed in. I plopped down on the bed and immediately began thinking of how to get some information about the group that would follow me in the hotel, Bilderberg. The AFP office wanted verification that we had found the correct hotel. Rumors of the meeting having been in Greece already, or in Japan were floating around. One of my primary goals was to make sure this was actually the location of Bilderberg. I went down to the bar and began to chum around with the barkeep. “I hear they are kicking everyone out of the hotel on Thursday. What’s the big event?” “I’m not allowed to talk about that,” was his response. “So, what’s the big event coming up this weekend?” I asked the front desk attendant. “Sorry, but we are not permitted to discuss that,” she replied.


“Can I extend my stay through the weekend?” I asked the front desk attendant. “Sorry, there is an event happening, they bought the entire hotel,” she said. “Wow, must be some event!” I replied, “This is a big hotel.” “Yes sir” she replied. Friendly conversation was getting me nowhere. I went through the rest of the day attempting to get any information about “the event.” All of my efforts, including a long night at the bar, were entirely fruitless. Well, perhaps not entirely fruitless. Something was definitely happening, and the hotel staff had all, from the doorman to the barman, been told not to speak of it. Sounds like Bilderberg to me. The next day was a bit more interestA U.S. federal security agent patrols the Marriott grounds. ing. I thought getting out of that huge, amazingly comfortable bed was going to be the most challenging part of my day. I was wrong. I put a call in to AFP and asked them what to do. I was getting FACES, OLD AND NEW nowhere fast, though all signs were pointing to the fact Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Fed attended, that we were in the right place.

Above left, Jim Tucker is interviewed by Andrew Neel for SeeThink Productions. Tucker has become almost more of a story than Bilderberg itself, having reported on every Bilderberg meeting but one since 1983. This year Tucker was nearly thrown for a loop when rumors surfaced the meeting would be held in Japan for the first time ever.

Then Bilderberg floated phony stories that the meeting had already been held in Greece. Even longtime Bilderberg hunters were fooled and reported that the meeting had, in fact, already taken place in Greece. At right, protesters hold signs that blast the global elite. At far left of photo is AFPʼs Steve Lombardo. At far right, Alex Jones.

Here she sits with AFPʼs Jim Tucker as a security guard keeps close tabs on the “dangerous” pair of journalists.

My one near break in the story came as I was walking away from the security guards. In the next hallway I asked a different security guard, “why can’t I take pictures? It just seems weird with all of this beautiful artwork and stuff.” “Oh, they’re just worried you’ll try to take a picture of someone important,” he replied. “They are going to have a lot of dignitaries in tomorrow.” As the day went on swarms of security guards descended upon the hotel. That night there were two men tending the bar: a bartender, and a security guard. The next morning I saw several people entering for Bilderberg. It seemed there were at least two security guards for every person, but of course no one I could recognize. The people I walked by were obviously from all over the world, sometimes speaking in languages I didn’t even recognize. I was checking out when I hastily jotted down two names I saw on nametags, Juan Luis Cebrian (who was on the Bilderberg attendee list) and what I thought was Penelope Rose (who might be a wife or relative of one of the two Roses on the list). Then the clock

struck 12 noon, I had to leave. I immediately joined the group outside the hotel to find out what was going on there. The protesters were loud. Four police cars sat watching at first, and SUVs with black tinted windows drove onto the hotel grounds. Again, the amount of security was intimidating. At one point I saw a police truck with riot gear in the back drive through. Men in black suits abounded, uniformed cops patrolled, “do not enter” signs seemed to sprout overnight, and Bilderberg was under way. The next few days were a blur of protesters and black cars with tinted windows. I met many interesting people who drove or flew from around the nation to confront the Bilderbergers. I must say they were a brave lot. I was scared enough just trying to report on Bilderberg. As I considered this event in retrospect, my reaction was one of fear because of the security, and the incredibly powerful people who hid in the Marriott. Though I am as inconsequential to them as an ant, what if they decided to step on me? I made every effort to be lawful in my

reporting, as I was worried I might get arrested, but what if something happened? I called my wife and told her if I was arrested I had not broken the law. I was covering Bilderberg as a journalist, not a protester. Besides, I didn’t want to mess with burly officers with guns. It struck me that the people inside that hotel were afraid too. They were not just afraid that the protesters might get violent, they were afraid that simple people like me might get a seemingly innocuous commodity, information. They were so afraid that the 130 or so Bilderberg attendees paid an incredible amount of money to buy out a ritzy, private hotel and surround themselves with an army of security just to make sure a simple writer seeking facts could not get that simple commodity—information. Because if I got information I would share it with you, and then the Bilderberg attendees would have to face what they fear the most, the spotlight of accountability. #

Next Generation Actively Fights Globalism, New World Order
By Mike Finch large number of young people from “We Are Change,” a grassroots peace and social justice organization, came to protest Bilderberg from around the nation, joining Ron Paul supporters in bringing the next generation into the fight against globalism. “We Are Change to me is a group of people who are waking up to answer the call to duty in defense of our constitution and all that it stands for,” Los Angeles We Are Change Steering Committee Member Stewart Howe said. The Los Angeles chapter has more than 200 members. Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and Ohio (and possibly other) chapters sent protesters to Virginia’s Westfields Marriott to voice their opposition to Bilderberg’s closed gathering of dignitaries from around the world. “It was an awesome experience to be shoulder to shoulder with so many amazing people, people willing to


walk the walk, to get out there and be the opposition to tyranny,” Howe said. Howe was able to cross the continent and attend the event due to pooled resources from his home chapter of We Are Change. The organization was started by New York City’s Luke Rudkowski about five years ago. Rudkowski attended the Bilderberg protest, and often took his turn at the bullhorn confronting the Bilderbergers. We Are Change sets up citizen groups in the U.S. and around the world “to inspire a community of truth-seekers and peacemakers through creative campaigns with a commitment of nonviolence,” the We Are Change website said. “We Are Change is not so much a group but an idea, an idea that ‘We the people’ are the vehicles of these ‘ideas’ and of the freedoms, liberties, and truths we are seeking all across the globe.” We Are Change is not a politically affiliated organization, though many involved in We Are Change support

Congressman Ron Paul’s political views. Chapters of We Are Change around the nation and in Canada put on rallies and protests on a regular basis. The non-violent protesters are often confronted by police and have often had members arrested or ticketed for no apparent reason, most recently with the arrest and hand-cuffing of a non-violent member in Colorado who was giving away informational DVDs on an outdoor public street corner. He was ticketed for peddling, even though he was not selling anything. “We have a lot of actions. Just last night we confronted Scott McClellan (former White House press secretary)” Howe said, “Just about weekly we do outreaches, tables at festivals and hang our large banner from bridges over highways.” Howe said that a quote came to mind when he thought about We Are Change. “Few victories can rival the initial one of parting company with the spectators and stepping into the arena. That’s what this is all about.” #



About 50 AFP readers and activists from around the nation gave the Bilderbergers a good, old-fashioned patriot “welcome.” Ron Paul supporters were everywhere. Westfields security, prodded by a Secret Service agent, tried to have the protesters removed, thus denying them their First Amendment rights. To the credit of Fairfax County police, they refused to forcibly remove the peaceful protesters. Above right, Westfields, Bill Keech (with head in front of tree trunk) tries to convince police to evict protesters. He failed.

Bilderberg Protesters Win Free Speech Fight
By Julia Foster ore than 50 AFP readers, protesting at the entrance to the Westfields Marriott, forced a Secret Service agent to abandon efforts to force them to leave their posts. The embarrassed agent left the scene. The self-proclaimed “owner,” Bill Keech Jr., was forced to accept protesters with a three-step move by three people off “private property.” When Fairfax police finished talking to the protesters about the First Amendment, they laughed and told them to continue. “That’s what America is all about,” one said. Police remained, because Bilderberg paid the county for “protection.” Bilderberg also had platoons of private security, Secret Service and FBI agents. Moments later, the Secret Service man appeared, obvious because of his earplug and gun-bulge in his coat. He talked privately with police, who showed no


reaction. Keech joined the conversation. Keech and the Secret Service agent approached the protesters, with Fairfax police behind them. Keech asked to speak privately with the “leader.”All protesters stepped forward, yelling “I’m the leader!” To the baffled Keech, they shouted an explanation: “We’re all leaders.” Protesters asked: How does Keech “own” a sidewalk? If so, it remains a public right-of-way because it is constantly used by pedestrians—at least a “prescriptive right,” as lawyers would argue. “The Fairfax County police had no problem with us until the (Secret Service agent) came along.” Do the police support you now?” protesters demanded. Police were silent. The Secret Service man left. Keech caved. Protesters continued for four days. Protesters gave local police a cheering salute. If not for these brave, patriotic protesters, Bilderberg would not have yielded an inch on information about its secret meeting. Protesters patrolled from sunrise until long after dark. Alex Jones’s booming voice, enhanced

SOMETHING EVIL GOING ON HERE Of the countless broadcast and (small) newspaper interviews I conducted from early morning to late at night, my favorite anecdote involved a young woman of great faith. After my regular drill of confronting Bilderberg, I was standing outside when a young lady walked by, looking grim. “There is something evil going on here,” she said. She had never heard of Bilderberg. I gave her a brief Bilderberg education. She pulled out her Bible and quoted from Psalm 94: “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” She placed her hand on my shoulder and fervently prayed that all of us would be able to expose Bilderberg and for our safety. Because her husband works for the federal government, she was cautious about revealing her name. by a megaphone, ridiculed Bilderberg non-stop. Three other guys with megaphones joined at night and chanted good-natured insults in unison. Inside the resort, Bilderberg ears were pierced. Madeleine Albright, secretary of state under President Bill Clinton, was not on Bilderberg’s participant’s list, but was observed rolling in. When she stepped out of her car, protesters shouted her name. She screamed in panic and was helped into the resort. Many people driving by shouted support with thumbs-up and friendly waves. Of the hundreds observed, only two, a Bilderberg goon and a carload of apparently private citizens, made vulgar gestures and shouted obscenities. Many of the citizens came back to the protests, bringing large quantities of bottled water for the demonstrators. One brought 12 watermelons. A lawn chair was brought to Tucker, which made his legs (the only part of him that is 73 years old) last longer. #

Japanese Reporter Chases Bilderberg for First Time
By Grace-Eki Oyama


ost protest messages reflected informed research. Some speakers were surprisingly erudite with a lot of historical content. One said the drug war is bogus, starting off with the Opium War and how banking families manipulated all of that for profit and how their heirs are still active now as Bilderbergers (complete with genealogical chart). Protesters at this year’s Bilderberg meeting were not just shouting slogans of anger, although there was plenty of that. The 9-11 issue was addressed, although the focus could have been more on government involvement and accountability as opposed to the technical analysis of

the attacks. The protest was spontaneous and nonhierarchical. It took the American public 40 years to start doubting the Warren Report. It took Americans only a short time to doubt the 9-11 Report as well as to what the media depicted. About one-third of the protesters were visibly Ron Paul supporters and virtually all were at least sympathizers. Hope for America lies with them, the homeschoolers and other searchers for a more genuine America of 1776. #

One Gutsy Newspaper; Some Powerful Enemies
AFP: The Only National Newspaper to Expose Bilderberg


here’s only one national populist newsweekly staffed by an unsurpassed team of veteran investigative journalists who’ve dared to rip the veil off many major news stories that have been CENSORED and SUPPRESSED by the Big Money-Controlled Media Monopoly . . . American Free Press. AFP’s no-holdsbarred journalists have gored a lot of golden calves over the years, fearlessly treading forward, no matter how controversial the issue being covered. Can there really be any doubt why “the powers that be” have been working overtime to silence AFP’s unwavering voice that places America and our Constitution first? • AFP publishes exciting in-depth, un-censored news and information that good, decent, grass-roots, patriotic Americans need to know in order to combat the growing police-state that’s being clamped down on our republic. • AFP stands firmly against the New World Order conspirators with names GUARANTEED like Rockefeller and Rothschild who are working to establish a “Global Plantation” under their rule. • AFP exposes the plutocratic elites in the Bilderberg-Council on Foreign RelationsTrilateral crowd and their corrupt Media Monopoly which suppresses real news and promotes “cover-up cover stories,” sex scandals and culture distortion to dumb down the American public. AFP is YOUR voice. We’re proud to be representing all good Americans who love liberty.


If you have any doubt about why “they” want to silence American Free Press, you must be relying on The New York Times, The Washington Post, Time, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS or Fox for your “news” and “information”—and that’s a very big mistake. Subscribe to AFP today—and catch up on the real news you need to know.
