An anti-Empire alt-media site that registers 300,000 monthly views is asking you to help raise it a measly $500 per month for the next three months.

There are similar news sites that are somewhat more influential, with 500,000 or 1 million views, but their money spend is anywhere from 10 times to 50 times greater.

Thus by backing Checkpoint Asia specifically you're actually multiplying the influence of your alt-media donation dollar by several times.

Same goes for the actual product. At a fraction of the money ask, Checkpoint Asia does nearly as much quantity-wise, and picks content that, in my opinion, is smarter and more worthwhile for the long run than what anybody else does.

So far 42 of you are backing the site for the next 3 months with $1000. Thank you!

Podcast: US Drone Downed Over Yemen, What Was It Doing There Anyway??

The important questions the MSM never asks

On FPF #390, I discuss a US drone being shot down over Yemen. The US claims that Iran supplied the Houthi with the weapons. The US media has focused their attention on the relationship between Houthi and Iran. However, the more important question is what was a US drone doing over Houthi held Yemen. Trump has no authority to wage a war against the Houthi, who oppose al-Qaeda. I explain how the downing of a US drone and Saudi losing Aden to separatists show the US needs to end its involvement in Yemen.
