American Freedom Alliance mourns the sudden passing of its founder and president, Avi Davis.  
He was a great friend, a truly fine man, and an intellectual powerhouse whose sudden loss we all feel acutely.  
Avi and this organization have been a tremendous force for freedom, and the Board of Directors of AFA has been meeting to ensure that this important work continues.  We are committed to the mission, and to honoring Avi.  
Recently, Avi had written this:  
Happiness comes in life not by wanting but by giving; and then, of course, by expressing gratitude and humility for whatever small portion of good luck we are privileged to enjoy as a result. To BE happy, in the end, is to be grateful - thankful for our extraordinary good fortune to be alive.
If this is the case, and we believe it to be, Avi Davis must truly have been one of the happiest of men, and we are grateful to have known him. 
Roger Simon of PJMedia wrote this moving tribute, and this In Memoriam piece was written by Adelle Nazarian from Breitbart.com.

Geert Wilders and the Suicide of Europe

April 11, 2017
by Guy Millière

Even if the Dutch politcian Geert Wilders had won and if the Party for Freedom (PVV) he established eleven years ago had become the first party in the country, he would not have been able to become the head of the government. The heads of all the other political parties said they would reject any alliance with him ; they maintain this position to this day.

THE NEW YORK TIMES PRINTS THE FAKE FACTS THAT FIT ITS FALSE NARRATIVES: A CASE STUDY

February 6, 2017
by Center for Security Policy

On February 2, 2017, the New York Times published on its front page above-the-fold a hit-piece under the headline, “A Sinister Perception of Islam Now Steers the White House.” The principal targets of this unflattering article were President Trump, his National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and his “chief strategist,” Stephen Bannon. But at the article’s end were five paragraphs and a picture with a caption that amounted to the journalistic equivalent of a drive-by-shooting aimed at Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney.

LET FREEDOM RING THIS TUESDAY

November 6, 2016
by Karen Siegemund

Freedom is a fundamental tenet and principle of this nation – it’s the cornerstone, it’s the sine qua non of all that we are.  And it underlies, one way or another, all that gives Western Civilization that set of characteristics and values that contribute to its benefitting the most people in the most ways, ever.

Declaration of the Magna Carta Conference

We, the participants at the Magna Carta Conference, in Los Angeles, CA, do declare THAT:

  1. We celebrate the legacy of the Magna Carta as one of the foundational documents of the rule of law in the Western World.
     
  2. We believe that individual rights and the guarantees of the rule of law remain crucial to a healthy and flourishing society, and ought to be regarded as the birthright of all human beings. We fear that these principles are being poorly taught or not given appropriate emphasis in our schools today.
     
  3. We encourage the world to learn from the Magna Carta and its legacy, and to embrace the protections of life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness promised by the rule of law.
     
  4. We believe the legacy of Magna Carta is a central element of the prosperity and happiness of English-speaking peoples and should be emphasized in high schools and college curricula. Without these principles, freedom will not survive.

Signed  this 15th day of June, 2015 in Los Angeles, California by the participating speakers in the Magna Carta Conference.
