It was wonderful.
President Donald Trump was riding high with accomplishment after accomplishment – Middle East peace treaties, unparalleled economic conditions at home, and the Democrats were in a tailspin.
That was what WND and the other independent media were fighting for.
There was as yet no pandemic in sight. It was a wonderful Christmas season.
But beneath the surface, America faced a calamity of epic proportions. The Chinese coronavirus was about to break out, and the Democrats and Big Tech were about to take advantage of it. It was unthinkable then, but the fact is, the fix was in – our election was about to be stolen a year later.
It’s a distant memory now, as the Internet Cartel wars against free speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion as a way of shutting us down and stifling conservative views, Christian voices, the independent media – and free and fair elections.
WND has seen revenues drop precipitously from almost $10 million in 2016 to less than $1 million this year.
Right now, WND is in a battle for survival against the most powerful forces in communications today, or ever – the new gatekeepers of what people can say, write, speak or broadcast to a nation starving for the other side of the story.
That’s exactly what WND has provided for 24 years as the pioneering independent online news voice. But now, because of our unique, uncompromising and fearless news and commentary tradition, our revenues are being choked daily by the left-wing “progressive” cabal that strangles our reach through its “politically correct” algorithms and anti-First Amendment policies.
Google decides what’s best – and they label WND’s stories “dangerous,” “derogatory,” even “shocking content.”
It isn’t coincidental that these policies by the Internet Cartel hit overdrive immediately following the swearing-in of President Trump. They hate him and everything he stands for. What these monopoly communications companies do in hurting Trump by giving preference to media like the New York Times, CNN, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, the Daily Beast and Time is shameless. But what they do to WND and other independent media is scandalous. They made the calculated decision to ensure there will never be another free and fair election in America – and they started with the Big Steal in 2020.
We can’t fight this battle alone. We need your support – urgently and desperately. Just try to imagine America without the independent media bringing you the truth. We are in the midst of a titanic battle to save free speech, the free press and freedom of religion in this country. Don’t forget it for a minute.
Yes, we face a catastrophe of dwindling revenues and traffic without your urgent help.
But we’ve adjusted. We saw it coming. We established an IRS-approved 501c3 nonprofit, the WND News Center, so your donations are tax-deductible.
While we look to the future revitalization of WND later this year, we face an immediate existential threat right now. We need your urgent prayers and financial support of at least $100,000 in July – always a tough month for advertising revenues and traffic.
If WND goes down, you will see an inevitable cascading effect of disaster for independent media. No one is safe. We’re all in the same boat. We’re even seeing boycotts of Fox News.
Make no mistake: The Internet Cartel represents one of the most monolithically powerful communications forces ever devised in the history of the world. It’s like the recreation of the Tower of Babel, only more pervasive, more organized and more evil in its intentions.
It needs to be knocked off its privileged pedestal from which it sets its warped rules for debate, dialogue and news dissemination.
How? For starters, by thwarting their scorched-earth policies against WND.
WND urgently needs your help in the form of fervent prayer and financial contributions to stabilize its position as the pioneer in independent news gathering. We’re in the midst of an existential battle for survival right now – just as other independent media are, with all of us facing seemingly insurmountable odds on the rigged playing field the Internet Cartel has created. Good people, dedicated media professionals, are suffering with pay cuts and late salary payments. Help us survive to keep up the fight! We need to raise a minimum of $100,000 in July to make ends meet.
Pray for WND! Join us as partners. Support us with your contributions that help offset the war on our revenue streams. Your help is urgently needed.
UPDATE ON WND’S REVIVAL CAMPAIGN: Beginning two weeks ago, Tuesday, June 15, we launched a drive to raise $100,000 so WND, now in its 25th year, can continue to operate. As of today, since June 15 we’ve raised $21,924.38. Thank you sincerely for that, all who donated. Now we need to raise the remaining $78,701. Please support us by making a generous tax-deductible donation to the WND News Center, the nonprofit, charitable, 501(c)3 sister organization to the for-profit WND. And consider sending a monthly contribution of any amount.
