With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
(AP Photo/Scott Stewart, File) The New York Times allows one token conservative columnist–and no, it’s not David Brooks.
Ross Douthat has been with the liberal paper for a dozen years, and he’s still only 41. He’s spent most of his pundit career imploring Republicans to move beyond Ronald Reagan’s conservatism.
But with soaring inflation , rising crime rates, a chaotic border , and foreign policy challenges — including an incipient battle with China — Douthat acknowledged that there are many parallels between the 1970s and 1980s and today in his Sunday column.
With a focus on inflation, supply-chain issues, crime, and China’s “Cold War-style brinkmanship around Taiwan,” he writes that Beijing could be what “Republican hawks were always looking for the next organizing threat for U.S. foreign policy.”
The Biden administration’s catastrophic surrender from Afghanistan while Communist China’s power continues to grow has led to comparisons of Biden’s disastrous tenure to Jimmy Carter’s failed term. Prosperity Is Bad Now, Because Democrats Can’t Produce It, by @jtLOL https://t.co/XP0OiiBrGJ — jimtreacher.substack.com (@jtLOL) November 15, 2021 There are also other issues at work now that were not two generations ago; none are advantageous to Democrats.
“The vaulting ambitions of cultural progressivism, the march of activist ideas through elite institutions and public bureaucracies, have given Republicans a chance to regain the culture-war advantages that they lost during the socially liberal years between Bill Clinton’s impeachment and the Supreme Court’s establishment of a right to same-sex marriage,” Douthat writes. “As in the 1970s, the cultural left has lately won a series of victories but then has run way ahead of them, creating a gap between its vanguard ideas and public opinion.” To fully internalize what the polling is telling Democrats is to accept that the public is shouting “Stop” with all the force their diaphragms can muster. But Democrats don’t want to stop. https://t.co/b0PVKdmM7Y — Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) November 15, 2021 He admits that inflation and the murder spike are influenced by pandemic conditions, so they could recede more quickly than four decades ago, but Douthat also writes, “My own suspicion is that the norm of masking in […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
