AFP: Moving Forward


During the past year, AFP was subjected to a flurry of relentless attacks by a bizarre Internet-based propagandist with ties to the Zionist media empire of billionaire Rupert Murdoch. When his attempt to infiltrate his way into AFP’s inner circle was foiled, he retaliated with a barrage of lies and disinformation intended to undermine AFP. Needless to say, AFP managed to weather the crisis, recognizing that this kind of retaliation and devilry on the part of the New World Order crowd can be expected.

After all, AFP and its staff have spent years exposing the misdeeds of international Zionism and its forceful and powerful allies in the American media and in its Washington power network.


You know that American Free Press was the only regularly published journal—apart from valiant independent sources on the Internet, of course—that dared to challenge the official U.S. government version of what happened on the day of the 9-11 terrorist attacks. We’ve made a lot of enemies for doing this, but the fact is that the truth is genuinely “breaking out all over” and it’s thanks to the efforts of AFP readers such as you who have widely distributed AFP’s various special reports focusing on 9-11, such as “Fifty Unanswered Questions on 9-11,” Debunking 9-11 and The DEA Report on Israeli Spies in America, more and more people are learning what they need to know.AFP’s Phantom Flight 93, by Victor Thorn and Lisa Guliani, is the latest 9-11 related volume that we’ve released, and it—like the others—has proven popular. We’re giving you the ammunition you need to show people the truth!


And speaking of 9-11, over the past several years AFP has had the opportunity of working with two very real 9-11 heroes, William Rodriguez, the last man out of the World Trade Center’s North Tower before its collapse, and respected 9-11 widow, Ellen Mariani whose husband was on Flight 175, the plane that is said to have been slammed into the South Tower of the WTC.

Both William and Ellen have boldly stood up to question the government’s lies about that tragic day and they are widely respected here and abroad and the truth is that there are growing numbers of 9-11 survivors and victims’ families who are joining the growing cacophony of rightfully angry dissident voices who know that we’ve been lied to about that tragic day.


There are a few “wolves in sheep’s clothing” out there who have been posing as “9-11 truth seekers” but AFP is doing its best to weed them out and keep AFP’s pages clean. The bottom line is that we are having a real impact on this important issue and we intend to keep on hammering away until the truth comes out—and it will.


We hate to say it, but “we told you so” about an Iraq invasion. Many of you regular readers will recall that—even before the invasion—when American Free Press first said there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and that Iraq and Saddam Hussein were no threat to America—AFP actually lost a lot of readers who said that we were “anti-American” for criticizing President Bush. They accused us of “undermining the troops.”

They said we were actually lending aid and support to “the terrorists”! Well guess what: we were right. Iraq has turned into a hellish, super-expensive death trap, exactly as predicted. Additionally, no weapons of mass destruction ever turned up either. Had the mainstream press and the U.S. government listened to AFP, America would not be in the mess we are in today.


We’ve argued from the beginning against senseless and foolish American intervention abroad, particularly in the Middle East, and reminded Americans of President George Washington’s wise admonition against permanent alliances with foreign nations.

We’ve been called “anti-Semitic”—and even “neo-Nazi”—for pointing out that the war in Iraq was first and foremost a war that was demanded by the powerful Israeli lobby and its foreign principal, the state of Israel, and that those directing U.S. policy in the Middle East, and specifically the intervention in Iraq, were hard-line extremists guided by an “Israel First” philosophy.

We told you that these “high priests of war”—as AFP’s Michael Collins Piper described them in his widely distributed book by that title—were the real enemies of America and the horrible state of America’s position in the world today is a direct consequence of their intrigues.


Late last year, just after we released our 2006 annual report, AFP correspondent Michael Collins Piper followed up his September 2006 meeting in New York City with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with a December visit to Iran itself. Piper was one of some 70 researchers and academics from 30 countries worldwide who attended a conference convened in Teheran in December of 2006 by President Ahmadinejad and the Iranian foreign ministry’s Institute for Political and International Studies.
This was the much-publicized international conference on the subject of “the Holocaust” and, as Mike pointed out in a special report entitled “What Really Happened in Iran”—published in the first issue of AFP for the year 2007—most of what was reported about that conference in the mass media in America was largely misinformation and deliberate disinformation.


The CIA in Iran is the title of an important new book issued by AFP over the past year, telling the whole ugly story of U.S. intervention in that country—right from the published formerly-secret records of the CIA itself. Americans need to know the truth about some of the less-savory ventures of our leaders and their agents-in-place and AFP didn’t back off from bringing you this important story or updates on other stories that we’ve covered over the years.


That’s a story that AFP has been covering that a lot of people would like to see just “go away.” But it won’t. Not as long as AFP can do anything about it. AFP correspondent Mark Glenn has been working closely with USS Liberty survivors and others (including some real insiders) to bring out continuing new revelations surrounding that tragedy, an attack by our two-faced “ally” on a barely armed U.S. naval vessel, resulting in the murder of 34 Americans and the wounding of 172 others.


As he has done repeatedly over the past 30 years —and it’s no simple task—AFP’s globe-trotting correspondent-turned-editor Jim Tucker Jr. once again managed to hunt down the location of the annual Bilderberg meeting. This year Bilderberg met in Istanbul, Turkey and Jim traveled to the Middle East to report on Bilderberg’s intrigue with the help of donations from AFPRC members and AFP readers.

While the American media (which is often represented at Bilderberg by officials and writers from TheWashington Post) consistently ignores Bilderberg, recent years have seen increasing numbers of journalists from “mainstream” media outlets in Europe joining Jim in exposing Bilderberg’s aims.

In fact, this year, as in previous years, foreign media outlets cited Jim’s long history of working to drag Bilderberg into the light of public disclosure. Jim’s book, Bilderberg Diary—an AFP exclusive—remains the primary source on Bilderberg.


Jim Tucker hasn’t simply focused on Bilderberg, however. This year—as before—Jim managed to trail the less secretive (but still powerful) Trilateral Commission to Brussels, Belgium from where Jim revealed that the “TC”—a lessexclusive “junior brother” of Bilderberg—called for higher gas taxes and urged a push for final ratification of a single European
super-state, part of the long-standing internationalist goal of setting in place a New World Order under the control of a global elite.

Three members of the U.S. Congress participated in the Trilateral gathering: Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), whose banker uncle, David Rockefeller, has been a mainstay of the globalist organization, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), a staunch Zionist whose super-rich husband has been
engaged, for years, in secretive international business dealings, and Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) who purports to be a congressional voice for his largely black constituency but who, obviously, has far more elite contacts inside the Trilateral Commission.


When Bilderberg-Trilateral allied one world advocates staged a conference in Canada, to further the agenda of uniting the United States, Canada and Mexico as part of a regional unit to be incorporated into a global regime, the big money boys were in for a surprise. They were met by loud and enthusiastic protests conducted by a group of protestors, most of them college age young adults, and AFP’s correspondent Jason Snow (who also happens to be AFP’s webmaster at provided readers

a fascinating account of this grass-roots uprising against the would-be masters of the world. This is a sign that despite the Grand Design for global government, opposition is growing and dissent is no longer confined only to AFP readers.


And right here at home, growing coalitions of grass-roots Americans, truck drivers and other patriots have been rallying and lobbying hard against a variety of schemes designed to advance the goal of merging the United States, Canada and Mexico. AFP’s roving correspondent Mark Anderson has provided numerous reports about these good efforts, ranging from the uproar over the proposed “Trans-Texas Corridor” to the plan to sell the famed Pennsylvania Turnpike to private corporate interests—all part and parcel of the agenda of the internationalist North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which is, in turn, a facet of a wide-ranging array of so called “free trade” consortiums that have been on the planning boards of the world plutocrats since the closing days of World War II. You can count on AFP to keep you up to date on these predatory designs aimed at diluting America’s national sovereignty.


It’s an issue that’s hitting home all across the United States. In the old days, the only people who were “aware” of the growing immigration crisis were those living on the U.S. border with Mexico. Now, with some 20 million illegal immigrants popping up all over America—even including rural parts of the Midwest and the Northeast—the issue is coming more and more to the forefront of public debate. AFP has always been on top of this issue and we have been proud to highlight the work of Hazleton, Pennsylvania Mayor Lou Barletta who has been speaking out forcefully in defense of American rights in the face of expanding immigration, both legal and illegal, onto American soil.


The death of former CIA officer E. Howard Hunt was followed this spring by the revelation by his sons that Hunt had admitted, in his dying days, to have been privy to a high-level conspiracy, involving elements in the CIA, to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. This proved a vindication not only to AFP but also to its good friend, veteran attorney and JFK assassination investigator, Mark Lane.


Although AFP doesn’t have its own regular radio outlet, we have forged a good close working relationship with John Stadtmiller and the Texas-based Republic Broadcasting Network, which can be heard on the Internet at Our own AFP correspondent Michael Collins Piper has been broadcasting nightly over RBN at 9 pm Eastern Time in his own one hour slot, and we understand that Mike’s program is one of the most popular broadcasts on the network.

In addition, our regular AFP correspondent Mark Glenn is not only a regular guest on Mike’s program, but he’s also a co-host on another popular RBN broadcast, “Current Issues” with Dr. Hesham Tillawi (broadcast on Saturdays at 5 pm Eastern Time). We count John Stadtmiller, host of RBN’s flagship forum, “The National Intel Report,” as a good friend of American Free Press. Tune in to RBN if you can.


Although Ron Paul and syndicated columnists Charley Reese and Paul Craig Roberts are not on the AFP staff, we’re pleased to publish their work each week. And it’s important to note that, in the past, both Reese and Roberts were more or less conventional conservatives with GOP leanings. However, as the situation in America has gotten worse—just as AFP’s editors predicted long ago—all these men have come out swinging, daring to take on the GOP traitors who (right alongside the treacherous Democrats) are now part of the problem. And that’s another sign more and more honest folks are coming around to recognize that AFP has been right on target all along.


And needless to say, the public domain columns written by Dr. Ron Paul, the outspoken Republican congressman from Texas, are also a popular feature in AFP, which has always ranked Dr. Paul as one of the best—if not “the” best—members of Congress. Now that Dr. Paul is in the race for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination, AFP takes great satisfaction in seeing that his views (reflecting ours) are getting a vast public reception that is winning broad-ranging support. Although the major
media is doing all it can to suppress news about Dr. Paul’s candidacy, AFP continues to publicize campaign developments, and thanks to the Internet more and more people are now learning that Ron Paul represents traditional American philosophy, quite in contrast to the outlandish stances of war-mongering, big spending demagogues such as Rudy Giuliani, John McCain and others who now claim the mantle of being “mainstream” Republicans.


A tax rebellion is under way (and has been for a long time) and AFP consistently reports on it.We’ve told you about the case of Ed and Elaine Brown, the New Hampshire patriots who stood up to the Internal Revenue Service and questioned its right—under our Constitution—to pick the pockets of industrious Americans. Popular musician Paul Topete of the band Poker Face provided AFP readers an on-site report on the “Live Free or Die Rally” at the Brown home—a real inspiration. The effort
to bring the IRS into line has been going on for a long time and AFP has been proud to report on the work of those who have dared to do it.


The fight for freedom is being waged on many fronts. The power of big government infringes on the rights of citizens in many realms. Take, for example, the story AFP told this past year of the family farmers who’ve been targeted by state and federal bureaucrats for the outrageous crime of
selling raw, unprocessed milk to satisfied customers. Or our stories about farmers and ranchers fighting to keep federal bureaucrats off their land and out of their lives. Or AFP’s reports about concerned towns, cities and counties—and just plain people—working to rein in federal power bullies. The list goes on and on—and AFP always stands on the side of the people.


There are growing efforts to push so-called “hate crimes” and other similar
“thought crimes” type measures at the local, state and federal level. Right now there are roughly 15 nations—ranging all the way from “democratic” Germany down to Australia and New Zealand—where people can be jailed for simply questioning “taboo” the “Holocaust” or government policy. AFP has ignored political correctness and has forthrightly supported the right of historians and researchers to re-examine and revise history to bring it into accord with the facts.


It seems that we can hardly turn around without fanatic gun-banners trying to put the kibosh on our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. This year, as always, AFP has always been on top of the latest news surrounding what seem like unending schemes to take away the guns of law-abiding citizens and sportsmen.


Although most folks rely exclusively on conventional doctors and hospitals and over-the-counter and prescription drugs to treat their maladies, the fact is that—for thousands of years—so-called “home” remedies have often been very successful. Well, AFP has always been a supporter of freedom of choice in health care and that’s why our regular special twelve-times-ayear special report insert “Whole Body Health,” provides you important news and information that the medical establishment (and the big drug companies, in particular) don’t want you to know about.


Energy alternatives are important too. It’s not only in the health arena that AFP is keeping you up-to-date. During the past year our new man in the field, Mark Anderson, has written some critical stories about developments in the field of alternative fuels. Environmentally friendly biodiesel is one good example. Americans can lessen their dependency on Big Oil, particularly foreign oil imports, and AFP’s reports have been providing our readers with the news about these energy alternatives they need to know about.


It’s one of the best in the world and, at the same time, one of the worst in the world. AFP has been alerting you to the dangers of computerized voting and about various good efforts to bring back old-fashioned paper ballots and an honest, transparent vote count. We were ahead of the curve
on this issue and we’re proud of it.

In closing, we’ll simply say “thanks for everything”—for all of the good support you’ve provided AFP during the past year. We need to know that AFP has your continuing support in the months ahead.
