The race for U.S. Senator in Pennsylvania took on an added importance over the weekend when President Donald Trump announced his endorsement of Dr. Mehmet Oz. This is a foul move that smells like a combination of two pressure points coming together.
The first is a universal pressure about Trump’s place in the GOP. He needs to endorse as many winners as possible in order to cement his position as the top influencer among Republicans. That means the people he endorses need to win, which is why he never endorses true America First patriots if they’re not polling well. One can even argue that he pulled his endorsement of Mo Brooks for the U.S. Senate race in Alabama because he was losing.
When Trump endorsed Brooks, he was leading the pack by a mile at over 40%. In the months that followed, Brooks has been attacked heavily by Mitch McConnell’s various PACs and candidates. That combined with the fact that his team is running one of the worst Senate campaigns in recent memory is why he fell to third place at around 17%.
Trump claimed he pulled his endorsement because Brooks said it’s time to move on from focusing on 2020 election fraud. I completely disagree with Brooks on this point, but I can promise you this. Considering Trump continues to endorse other candidates who have not fought nearly as hard as Brooks to expose the 2020 stolen election, it’s a safe bet that if Brooks was still leading the pack then he would still have Trump’s endorsement.
The second pressure point for Trump comes from his donors and advisors. They’re essentially one in the same. Some earn his ear because they work for him. Others earn his ear because they donate to his campaigns. He puts a lot of weight in both camps when it comes to guiding him through political issues such as endorsements. Both his advisors and his donors love Dr. Mehmet Oz.
The good news about all of this is that it reminds me of who Trump really is. He does listen to people. Sometimes he listens to the wrong people, but he’s shown a willingness to listen to his base when we’re loud enough about it all. The perfect example happened during the 2016 campaign when he started pushing his “softening.” Around August, less than a month after the Republican National Convention, he started floating the idea of not being as hard on illegal aliens as he had been during the primary campaign.
This was, of course, at the behest of his advisors and large donors who thought he would have a better chance of beating Hillary Clinton if he toned down his rhetoric about illegal aliens. He started saying that maybe he would only focus on deporting convicted criminals instead of the millions of other illegal aliens. He even went on a “town hall” style show with Sean Hannity to try to sell it to the people. Both he and Hannity kept trying to convince the audience that you can’t just deport millions of people who had been in the United States for years.
The people weren’t having it. The live audience booed and the backlash from conservative media was harsh. I know because I was among them. The “softening,” as it was called, lasted about a week and a half before he went back to his original campaign promises of deporting those who had stolen our sovereignty, including so-called DREAMers. As a result, it worked.
He will listen to us if we’re loud enough. The best way to remind him that he needs to listen to us more carefully is to send a stark message about Dr. Mehmet Oz. He is not a Republican. He is not a conservative. He does not believe in America-First. He’s the next Mitt Romney, who Trump also endorsed. In fact, he may end up being worse than Romney if he makes it to Capitol Hill.
I posted an article last year about the various leftist stances Dr. Oz has held, not to mention his affection for globalism as one of Klaus Schwab’s favorite young leaders. Here’s an excerpt:
When a conservative thinks about what Republican policy platforms should include, there are certain things we do not expect to see:
- Bail reform
- Gun control
- Transgender surgeries for children
- The Great Reset
What do all of these things have in common, other than being associated with the political left? They all happen to be policies actively and aggressively promoted by “Republican” U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz. He’s running in arguably the most consequential Senate race in 2022, Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, his name recognition may be enough to propel him to a primary win. We need to stop him.
Then, of course, there’s the vaccines. We’ll talk about that at another time.
Dr. Mehmet Oz needs to lose. It’s not just because he’s a slimy RINO who will not represent our values. It’s because Donald Trump needs a reminder that he needs to listen to his base over his advisors and donors.
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!
