Medals were given out Saturday in shooting sports, martial arts, weightlifting, fencing and cycling.
Of the 33 medals awarded, not a single one went to an American, according to The Hill .
Olympic historian Bill Mallon said this was the first time since the 1972 Munich Olympics that the U.S. suffered an opening day drought at the Summer Games. Looks like no medals for @TeamUSA on day 1 of the medal chase. Last happened at the Summer Olympics in 1972 at Munich. Part of a stretch from 1960/64/68/72 when US did not medal on day 1. Have done so every other Games 1932-2016. 1/n — Bill Mallon (@bambam1729) July 24, 2021 American athletes did not receive any medals on the first day of the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang either.
The International Olympic Committee has thrown out its former rules against political activism at the Games and is allowing athletes to protest at this year’s Olympics.
“Meaning,” Ingraham said , “we are going to get a lot more, not less, of what we don’t want to see.”
On Friday, noting that the U.S. women’s soccer team had its pre-game protest down pat despite a 3-0 loss to Sweden, Ingraham bemoaned the fact that the left’s “woke” doctrine is running rampant at the Olympics.

She said the Tokyo Games will feature “an overload of Olympians who think we somehow care about their political views.”
“Whether it was President Reagan opening the 1984 Olympics or Bill Clinton in 1996 in Atlanta, we rallied because we loved the country and we loved our athletes,” Ingraham said.“And for a few weeks, we all put our differences aside about pretty much everything else. But today, things are different.”“Now there are millions of Americans disgusted by the U.S. women’s soccer team not because they lost to Sweden, but because […]
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!
