Three of the most powerful politicians in California were snapped not wearing a mask during the NFC Championship game on Sunday at SoFi Stadium, despite public health rules that require masking at all outdoor “mega-events.”
San Francisco Mayor London Breed, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and California Governor Gavin Newsom obliged a request from Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson to snap a photo outside of their luxury box during the game.

Hizzoner says he was wearing his mask throughout the game and when he removed it for the photo, he “held his breath.”
Deadline: “I’ll take personal responsibility,” said Garcetti in answer to a reporter’s question about the photos, “and if it makes you and everyone else happy — or even the photographs with people where literally I’m holding my breath for two seconds — I won’t even do that.” Garcetti defended L.A.’s mask mandate because, he pointed out, the region is still experiencing a high rate of transmission. That’s all fine and dandy, your honor, but many other photos of you taken during the game curiously also show you not masked up, as your own public health order requires.
We suppose you didn’t exhale.
Meanwhile, Governor Gavin Newsom, who has already been put through the political ringer for going maskless at the French Laundry in the early days of the pandemic, showed that he had learned his lesson well. He didn’t deny going maskless and admitted he only took the mask off briefly to take the photo with Magic. “You’re […]
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!
