One of the great Democrat dreams is “turning Texas blue.” So far, the closest they’ve come was convincing the state to rely on windmills for energy when a historic arctic snowstorm froze their turbines and caused a massive blackout. That turned Texas blue! And if this past weekend is any indication, that may be as close as they’ll ever come.
Saturday, there were local elections across the Lone Star State, and Texans made it clear that they’ve seen why so many blue staters are moving in, and they want nothing to do with the policies that brought them there. Here are a few of the most notable election results:
Lubbock, TX — “Sanctuary City for the Unborn”
Voters made Lubbock the 23rd Texas city to declare itself a “sanctuary city for the unborn,” declaring abortion murder and outlawing it at every stage. (There are also two such cities in Nebraska.) This is significant because Lubbock is the only city that already had an active abortion provider, a Planned Parenthood clinic that just started offering abortions last month.
Hit That Sad Trombone Sound
In a special election, voters in the 6th Congressional District (south of Dallas plus some of the DFW mid-cities) chose a replacement for Republican Rep. Ron Wright, who died of COVID-19 in February. With a number of Republicans splitting the vote, Democrats hoped to get into the runoff and pick up the seat. But Wright’s widow, Susan Wright, came in first, with an endorsement from former President Trump helping overcome a slanderous robocall campaign against her.
And in second place was State Rep. Jake Ellzey, who will face Wright in a run-off. The highest any Democrat came in was third. Hit that sad trombone sound!
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!
