It has long been a truism that justice and public policy built on a foundation of emotion become a threat to our very way of life. Altering the law based on the most overheated passions and impulsive demands of the day never ends well. And doing so based on claims of false virtue makes the problem far worse. And yet, nearly all the solutions to problems identified by the Democratic Party these days are based on those twin – and equally illegitimate – rationales.
With Minneapolis and the nation bracing for impact in the trial and verdict to come in the killing of George Floyd, the overwrought emotion and hyperinflated, self-declared virtue of the progressive left has already been on display for all the world to see. Almost ten months after the event, and just as jury selection began, the far-left Minneapolis City Council delivered a $27 million payday from the taxpayers to the Floyd family. This could only be for one of two reasons: an attempt to sway the eventual jury or gross ignorance of the fact that it would do exactly that.
But that’s hardly the end of it. Far-left Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, an open supporter of Antifa, stacked the deck further. As described by LN Legal Affairs Editor Scott D. Cosenza, “Mr. Ellison, who is not highly regarded as a homicide prosecutor, went out and hired a Minnesota dream team to make sure Chauvin gets convicted.” Never mind if evidence demonstrates something other than a flat-out murder by Officer Derek Chauvin. A not guilty verdict cannot be allowed to happen, so we will import an OJ-style legal team to make absolutely sure – as if Officer Derek Chauvin is not already the most reviled man in America.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
