President Joe Biden has been in office for just over a year and there’s already been two foreign policy crises under his watch, with the catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan and now the Russian invasion of Ukraine. A Harvard Center for American Political Studies (CAPS)-Harris Poll released on Friday, though, shows that a majority of voters believe Vladimir Putin would not have invaded if former President Donald Trump was in office.
As Caroline Vakil for The Hill highlighted , 62 percent of respondents believe that Putin would not have invaded Ukraine if Trump was still president. Not surprisingly, 85 percent of Republican respondents said as much, and 38 percent of Democrats agreed. Thirty-eight percent believe Putin still would have invaded even if Trump was in office.
A majority, at 59 percent, also responded that they believe Putin made such a move because he saw a weakness in President Joe Biden. Forty-one percent responded that it was not a factor.
The poll was conducted from February 23-24, with 2,026 registered voters.
Twitter has been buzzing with such conversation in the previous days already. For four years, we had peace under Trump. Think about that. — Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) February 24, 2022 Too little, too late. Biden could have STOPPED the Russian invasion of Ukraine if he showed STRENGTH against Putin. The world is on FIRE thanks to the “leader” in the White House. This would’ve NEVER happened under President Trump! pic.twitter.com/S6Nx55tjYB — Ronny Jackson (@RonnyJacksonTX) February 26, 2022 If Trump was in Putin’s pocket, why did he stop the pipeline? And if Biden isn’t, why did he endorse it then start buying oil from Russia? ??
And now, Russia controls the energy. Trump was trying to prevent this. But Biden just gave Putin the keys to energy control over… Europe […]
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!
