George W. Bush / IMAGE: Today via YouTube ( Mark Pellin , Headline USA ) Former President Donald Trump ran off a string of heavyweight endorsement wins with Tuesday’s primaries, but his kingmaker status in the GOP could face a hurdle in Georgia, where former President George W. Bush is now overtly backing Gov. Brian Kemp .
Trump has a heightened vested interest in seeing his endorsed candidate, former GOP Sen. David Perdue , come out with a win. Kemp incurred Trump’s wrath and loathing when, as governor, he certified the dubious results of Georgia’s 2020 presidential election.
After having backed Perdue with a vengeance, a primary loss might be pounced on by never-Trumpers as a sign that the former president’s influence over the GOP is waning.
Which is where the other former president, George W., who has an acrimonious and contentious familial history with Trump, comes into play.
Bush is set to appear as the “special guest” at a swank fundraiser for Kemp, which will put the governor “in front of an influential room of Texas donors just days before the Georgia primary on May 24,” reported Politico .
The list of old-guard establishment swamp dwellers attending the event include “Jim Francis, a major Texas bundler; Republican strategist Karl Rove; and Ross Perot, Jr., son of the former presidential candidate.”
Not exactly a MAGA gathering, and that’s almost certainly by design.
Bush inserting himself into the already-contentious race can be seen as a clear attempt to specifically take out a Trumped-backed candidate and squelch a Trump primary wave that would help further cement his clout in the GOP.With or without Bush’s involvement, Trump has faced an uphill battle with his recruitment and endorsement of Perdue, who has polled poorly from the launch of his campaign, with some bursts coming on Trump’s endorsement and his two […]
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!
