The once highly respected and free nation of Hong Kong is now a different country as the free press is dead and punishing COVID mandates have killed the country’s once-great economy.
In Hong Kong, the free press is a thing of the past. “One ‘wrong’ word could cost us our jobs, or worse, land us in jail. Every time I see a journalist being arrested or a media organisation closing down, I tell myself I have to work harder to do their part as well. But I don’t know if that’s possible.” https://t.co/vmIL1hG8rV — Hong Kong Democracy Council (@hkdc_us) February 9, 2022 TRENDING: BREAKING: Evidence Shows Hillary Team Paid Tech Company to ‘Infiltrate’ Servers in Trump Tower and Later the Trump White House in an Attempt to Link Trump to Russia

https://www.ft.com/content/5d388472-dd25-4869-af54-4051bfa0b634 Journalists broadly decried the “death of free press” in Hong Kong, whose vibrant media scene — at least 15 newspaper titles with a mix of political leanings and more than four news channels for a population of 7.4mn — was once hailed as one of the most freewheeling in Asia. It is not just these recent high-profile closures that have prompted local journalists to lose faith. The ripple effects of the imposition of a sweeping national security law by Beijing in 2020 — which led to dozens of pro-democracy activists […]
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!
