First off, thanks for checking out this page!
In the past few years, I’ve been expanding into independent journalism, covering important news stories on the scene. Given that the corporate, leftist media will always spin news to fit their agenda, the only way to get the real story is for us to do it ourselves. In the past four years, I’ve reported on #BlackLivesMatter marches in Chicago, the presidential primaries in Iowa, New York and other states, the Republican National Convention, political events in Hungary, Ukraine, Poland, and much more.
While many people enjoy and benefit from my work, independent journalism is costly. Transportation, accommodation, and equipment are expensive, and without an MSM publication backing me, I need to pay all the expenses myself. Because Big Tech has been trying to censor and no-platform right-wingers in recent times, that means I need to appeal to you, my readers, to be able to bring you the news and stories you want to hear.
While I used to be able to maintain a modest living from my books and blog, the left has been progressively shutting me down for the past four years.
In 2016, I was banned from Amazon Associates, depriving me of a major source of income. Later that year, I was also permanently banned from Twitter. In 2017, following President Trump’s inauguration, Google flagged my site as “fake news,” causing search traffic to my blog to plummet, and my book sales and income fell along with it. Following the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017, I was forced to stop using Patreon to collect donations from my readers. Finally, in 2019, I was permanently banned from Facebook.
I’ve since had to take on a day job in order to make ends meet, which leaves me less time to produce the original reporting and content my readers want.
If you get value out of my original, independent reporting, I’d greatly appreciate it if you could donate so I can produce more of it. You can contribute in the following ways…
You can make a one-time donation with your credit card, PayPal, or a bank transfer via the form below or by clicking here.
Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are a smart investment not just due to their security and the freedom they provide, but because their exponentially increasing value means that even small donations you make today will be worth many times more over the years. You can contribute by using the address or scanning the QR code of each currency below.
MattForney.com, MattForneyBooks.com, my YouTube channel, and my Twitch channel are all verified on Brave Rewards, Brave’s system for allowing readers and fans to automatically reward the creators whose content they consume the most.
If you’re not familiar with Brave, it’s a new web browser created by Brendan Eich, the former Mozilla co-founder and CEO who was forced to resign in 2014 after he was attacked by leftists for supporting California’s anti-gay marriage Proposition 8. Brave is not only faster than other web browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, it is designed to protect users’ privacy, with built-in technology that blocks ads and other tracking scripts.
To compensate content creators for lost ad revenue, the Brave Rewards system allows Brave users to financially support their favorite websites and content creators either by sending tips or automatically donating every month, similar to Patreon. Brave Rewards uses Basic Attention Tokens (BAT), an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency that is rapidly gaining value (you can track the price of BAT here). Brave’s auto-tracking system allows you to automatically send me BAT based on how much time you spend on my websites, YouTube channel, or Twitch channel, though it’s also possible to override the system and send me custom tips.
To learn more about how you can get Brave, enable Brave Rewards, and fund your wallet so you can start sending me BAT, click here. You can use the Auto-Contribute system to automatically send me BAT every month, or you can use the Tips system to send me individual donations.

I’m continually updating it with new items, so check back often. If you buy an item off my Amazon Wish List, please email me with the shipping number, as I won’t be able to receive it otherwise.
Thanks for reading my blog and supporting my work all these years. As cliched as it sounds, I literally wouldn’t be able to do this without you. With your continued readership and support, I’ll be able to keep fighting for the truth well into the future.
