For nearly 5 years, we have striven to keep this service free for all - but must now ask for voluntary donations from the viewers who enjoy this site.
According to my mass-emailing service, I receive an average of 20,000 page views per day, sometimes much more but usually not much less. This is the traffic which I receive from subscribers of my newsletter and to whomever they may forward my newsletters.
According to traffic reporting site, Quantcast, of which my website has a widget installed (and which, as is the industrial norm, under-reports actual traffic by roughly 10%), the unique monthly visitors to my site amounts to 4X the amount of subscribers that I have on my emailing list.
Most of this much larger set of traffic is generated by search engine results. My webpages used to appear in the first or as one of the top results in Google searches for specific terms related to the articles on my website's 4,000+ pages. However, lately, search results have more commonly begun displaying my webpages at the bottom of the second page, which has had the effect of reducing this larger body of traffic.
My advertising service, however has been reporting and paying me for roughly half of the reported newletter traffic, which does not even include this 4X-larger body of traffic to my website. The upshot, is that, within 3 short months, my steady advertising income of almost 5 years, which enabled me to offer FKTV for free for all - has now dwindled to 1/5th of what it has been (down from 1/3rd, last month). The advertising income has comepletely fallen off a cliff, without any explanation from Google, other than to suggest that I fill in forms, using 50 words or less. I can no longer pay my basic bills, let alone the site's overhead, with my site income, as I have for almost 5 years.
It's obvious, that Google's counters are incorrect, either by their own doing or by a clandestine government cyber weapon, one of which has been written about by Glenn Greenwald, here: http://bit.ly/1qaz0Oh, as part of the leaks he received.
It is obvious that someone wants to put me out of business - and that they have been successful, insofar as destroying my current business model.
Several other Alternative Media sites have simultaneously experienced defunding, disintegration and massive channel views subtracted from their YouTube accounts.
It appears that the disturbing events that my business has experienced are part of a larger trend, aimed against the Alternative Media, in general.
Over the past several weeks, since this crisis became fully evident and was publicly announced, I've been intensely moved to receive the many kind, loving and appreciative letters - and checks. It makes me feel like I haven't wasted the past 5 years of my life. I am applying this money to migrating my website offshore, onto a secure VPN network. I will also physically move my actual person outside of the United States, as these events have left me feeling that I am personally not safe in this country.
During this transition of moving to another country, I won't have much time to find an alternative way to finance the site, as I'm also in the middle of releasing a feature film that I produced. I will probably have no choice but to rely on small recurring monthly donations, to keep this site going.

Are the Grim Financial Behemoths of the Blackstone Group, the Carlyle Group and TPG Capital Behind the Missing Plane?
March 31, 2013
The pieces to the Malaysia Airlines Mystery are starting to fall into place – where they end up, nobody knows…
It has recently emerged that an American IBM employee working in Beijing, Philip Wood was aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and his partner has been on national TV discussing her hopes that he is still alive.
What was not released publicly is the breaking news was that Wood was able to secret his smartphone between his butt cheeks, while he texted that the plane was hijacked, as reported by Jim Freestone
While blindfolded with one of those newfangled bags that are locked around your head and are not removable, he allegedly claimed to be in a prison cell, in a location unknown to him and he said that he believed he had been drugged – but he was still able to activate his smartphone, using voice commands to send that message plus this photograph: (http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/1395192158752.jpg), which reveals the GPS coordinates for Wood’s whereabouts to be the Joint RAF-USAF base at Diego Garcia, in the Indian Ocean - the same base from which most sorties have been made during the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Now, this part of the story may be a hoax. But what is true is that coordinates from that picture, Latitude: 7:18.58.308906555775787, Longtitude: 72:25.35.55908203125 DO lead directly to a plane hangar on the Indian Ocean atoll of Diego Garcia, as captured, with some difficulty by a retired US Navy friend.
Although Freestone claims that counterintelligence trolls have asserted that that this person does not exist, his LinkedIn account has been located (http://cn.linkedin.com/pub/philip-wood/3/a46/4a9) and his profile picture matches photos posted by his fiancee to Facebook, which are visible with a simple Google image search.
As to the motives behind this apparent hijacking, the following is a translation from an article by Alfredo Jalife-Rahme, from the Mexican news site, La Jornada (http://www.jornada.unam.mx/2014/03/30/politica/014o1pol):
'Under the Microscope: Blackstone and Jacob Rothschild, Beneficiaries of the Disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines Plane'
"In the post-Crimea tripolar, geostrategic world of the US, Russia and China, it is becoming to test the West's [Criminal Mainstream Media’s] overwhelming disinformational news campaigns, against reports from the Russian government’s almost indispensible multimedia website, Russia Today (see pages published on 3/22/14)
"As often happens in mysterious accidents, the unusual disappearance of flight MH 370 Malaysia Airlines, whose various explanations have been wholly unsatisfactory to anyone, leading to endless speculation, some, rather wild and disturbing.
"While waging a war against sanctions by the United States and the European Union against Vladimir Putin, Russia Today published the following patent for a semiconductor, approved by U.S. patent Office:
( http://es.scribd.com/doc/215253613/Us-008671381 )
"The patent was shared among five principal holders, owning 20 percent each: Freescale Semiconductor Company, located in Austin, Texas, with the other four holders being Chinese nationals employed by this Texas Corporation, all hailing from the Chinese city of Suzhou and all of whom were aboard the plane, along with 16 other employees of this same company.
"The Russian site says that if any patent holder dies, the other owners would share equally the dividends of the deceased, provided that there would be no dispute in his will.
"With the four Chinese patent-holders, now missing and/or killed, this now leaves 100 percent ownership of the patent in the hands of the Texas-based Freescale Semiconductor Company, which, in turn, is partially owned the controversial Blackstone Group, a New York-based Private Equity-Investment Banking firm, owned by Israeli-British banker Jacob Rothschild (http://actualidad.rt.com/actualidad/view/123046-rothschild-hereda-patente-semiconductores-avion-malasio).
"...What is also intriguing, that among the 239 passengers, 20 passengers were employees of the Pentagon, in addition to the fact that four of the passengers were using dubious passports [not two, as widely reported].
"Beyond the inevitable guesses, what is relevant is that these 20 Pentagon employees were likely well-versed in the art of electronic warfare, such as the avoidance of detection by military radar systems (http://www.examiner.com/article/malaysia-jet-hidden-by-electronic-weaponry-20-ew-defense-linked-passengers ).
"Curious, as well is that 20 of the missing passengers aboard flight 370 are employees of Freescale Semiconductor, 12 being natives of Malaysia and 8 from China.
"Freescale Semiconductor boasts that its products have applications in communications on the battlefield, avionics, missile guidance, electronic warfare and identification of friend or foe.
"The controversial Texan company, one of the first semiconductor companies in the world, began as a division of Motorola, which then split, to be acquired in 2006 by Blackstone, the Carlyle Group and TPG Sovereign Capital.
"Carlyle Group holds the title of dynastic nepotism of Bush family members and cronies, Frank Carlucci (former National Security Sdviser and former Pentagon Secretary) and former British Prime Minister John Major. (http://www.muckety.com/Carlyle-Group/5000357.muckety).
"TPG Capital is a powerful investment firm based in Fort Worth, Texas chaired by Israeli-American, David Bonderman, whose extravagant excesses include paying US$7M to the Rolling Stones to celebrate his 60th birthday, in 2002.
"Freescale Semiconductor specializes in electronic warfare and stealth “cloaking technology," using strategies based on radar electronic countermeasures (ECM ): 1) radar interference; 2) changes in the objectives and; 3) the change in power air properties.
"According to The Daily Beast, an Israeli attack on Iran would go further than air strikes and would probably deploy an electronic war against Iran's entire electrical system; the Internet, cellular network, and emergency frequencies for firemen and policemen.
"The Daily Beast asserts that Israel has developed a weapon capable of mimicking the maintenance of cellular signal, which effectively stops the transmissions (http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2011/11/16/israel-s-secret-iran-attack-plan-electronic-warfare.html ).
[And that YouTube popstar, DAHBOO7 claims that the plane purported to be missing in this incident, per its tail number, was actually purchased by an Israeli firm and has been held in storage in Tel Aviv, according to the plane-tracking websites, www.planespotters.net and planelogger.com.

"In the past decade, Israel has amassed a wide range of high-tech weapons that would allow a billionaire to jam, blind and deafen Tehran's defenses, in the event of a preemptive air strike.
"Moreover, there is a new stealth technology that makes the aircraft invisible to radar and hidden from human eyes, the high-tech camouflage being based on electromagnetic fields, as discussed military.com:
"US Accuses China of Escalated Hacking Attacks (http://www.shanghaidaily.com/national/China-points-finger-at-US-as-hacking-attacks-soar/shdaily.shtml ) Currently, Beijing and Washington are each accelerating the arms race concealment technology invisible planes (http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2013/12/17/invisible-airplanes-chinese-us-scramble-for-cloaking-tech).
"The powerful British military company BAE Systems (http://www.muckety.com/BAE-Systems-Inc/5009237.muckety) and linked to the NSA, DHS and the ominous Wilson Center (http://es.scribd .com/doc/190331938/l-Hamilton) owns the Swedish-founded Adaptiv Program, another firm specializing in cloaking technology which aims to hide the motor vehicles, boats and helicopters (http://bit.ly/1mt87it).
