AP Photo/Evan Vucci Last month the White House was so desperate for things to brag about in a year-end memo that they boasted about gas prices. According to the memo, the White House was proud to boast that the “price of gas at the pump has decreased nearly 10 cents since its peak, and continuing [sic] to fall.”
The memo failed to mention that when gas prices peaked in November, they were roughly a dollar per gallon more than when Biden took office. Nor did it say that the price of oil crashed at the end of November due to fears of more COVID-related lockdowns. So he could barely even claim that his raiding of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve was a huge factor in the price of gas falling.
Nevertheless, the Biden White House decided then to accept responsibility for gas prices. They claimed it was an accomplishment. They took ownership of gas prices from that point on.
Well, guess what? Gas prices are heading back up, and are approaching seven-year highs . CNN: gas prices could go up “even higher” in North Carolina as the state sees its “biggest annual increase in seven years” under Joe Biden. pic.twitter.com/yTBjRq4TnC — RNC Research (@RNCResearch) January 27, 2022 Oops.
So what is the White House to do, now that they’ve claimed credit for gas prices? I suspect that the White House to return to using the same “high gas prices are good” rhetoric we heard last year.
“Look, our view is that the rise in gas prices over the long term makes an even stronger case for doubling down on our investment and our focus on clean energy options, so we are not relying on the fluctuations and OPEC and their willingness to put more supply and meet the demand in the market,” Psaki said back […]
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!
