St. Louis, MO – U.S. Representative Cori Bush’s (D-Missouri) vehicle was damaged by gunfire early Saturday morning while parked in an undisclosed area of the city.
Information about incident came from a source close to Bush who was not authorized to speak about what occurred, KSDK reported.
Bush, one of the leading faces of the Defund the Police movement, was not inside the vehicle at the time of the shooting, according to the source. Other vehicles parked near Bush’s car had evidence indicating someone tampered with door handles and it was not believed the congresswoman was targeted, KSDK reported.
Bush said experiencing this “act of gun violence” was terrifying.
“Like far too many of us in St. Louis, experiencing gun violence is all too familiar,” she told KSDK. “Thankfully no one was harmed. But any act of gun violence shakes your soul.”
Bush said it is because of incidents like this that her “movement” is focusing on making the community safer.
“No one should have to fear for their safety here in St. Louis and that is exactly why our movement is working every day to invest in our communities, eradicate the root causes of gun violence, and keep every neighborhood safe,” she told KSDK.
Bush also tweeted about her car being shot back in June of 2020.“My car took the bullets. I am safe,” she wrote at the time. “When I say that I am the people I serve, it’s not a slogan!”She also shared photos of the bullet holes in her vehicle after that incident. “A bullet went through my door handle on one side of the car, another went through my tire on the other side,” Bush wrote. “I’m committed to taking us from ‘surviving St. Louis’ to ‘living it.’” My car took the bullets. I am safe. When I say that I […]
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!
