The U.S. economy is showing dangerous signs of decline under Democratic leadership. Last Thursday, the Commerce Department reported that GDP fell 1.4 percent in the first quarter, marking an abrupt change from the 6.9 percent growth in the previous quarter. This report was followed Friday with the announcement that the Personal Consumption Expenditures price index, an inflation indicator, has skyrocketed to 7.9 percent annually, marking its fastest rise since 1982.
This combination of shrinking GDP and rising inflation may feel eerily similar to the conditions of economic stagflation which the U.S. experienced in the 1970s under President Jimmy Carter .
As talk of economic decline grows louder, Democratic leadership has clung to its call for tax increases. Last Tuesday , Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said, “If you want to get rid of inflation, the only way to do it is to undo a lot of the Trump tax cuts and raise rates.” This call for tax increases comes on the heels of the Build Back Better plan, which failed to convince the American people that trillions in spending would be an effective solution to inflation.
A new Gallup poll has highlighted the impact of these worsening conditions on public confidence in President Joe Biden’s economic leadership. The poll , which was published Monday, found that 40 percent of U.S. adults have “a great deal” or “fair amount” of confidence in Biden. Monday’s poll also looked at Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell as well as Republican and Democratic lawmakers in Congress. Forty-three percent had confidence in Powell while 38 percent had confidence in Democrats in Congress. This is a sharp decline from 49 percent in Gallup’s 2021 poll . The poll revealed a 17-point drop in public confidence in the ability of the president to do the right thing for the […]
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!
