AP Photo/Steve Helber, File As we’ve previously reported, Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) and his administration have caused hurt feelings galore on the left and in the mainstream media ever since they were sworn into office on January 15th.
Since taking office, Youngkin has overturned mask mandates for kids in public schools, effectively outlawed the teaching of Critical Race Theory, and rescinded vaccine mandates for state workers. Jason Miyares, the state’s new Attorney General, has also been busy trying to “un-woke” the AG’s office, firing some 30 employees including some attorneys that were in the civil rights division.
Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears’ mere existence also continues to trigger the Usual Suspects, as they can’t deal with the fact that the first woman and black woman to hold the Lt. Gov. seat is not a woke Democrat.
As Youngkin, Sears, and Miyares continue their work trying to undo the damage done to the state by former Democrat Govs. Ralph Northam and Terry McAuliffe, their critics are launching a new line of attack, suggesting that maybe Youngkin and Company are overstepping their boundaries because they didn’t win by huge margins or something.
For instance, here’s how the Washington Post started off a weekend piece that was critical of just how “red” Youngkin had shown himself to be his first week in office: The big unknown about Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) as he ran for office last year — apart from the exact size of his vast fortune — was just how red the political newcomer really was behind that easygoing demeanor. One week into his term: mystery solved. Youngkin stormed into Richmond with an assertion of executive power that has thrilled the GOP base but caught even some allies off guard, and he has made clear that he views his two-point margin of victory as a […]
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 just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also 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!
