Drew and Becki Bausman share joy. Screenshot credit: CBS News video I know everyone is chomping at the bit to get primary results, but this heart-tugger was too good to wait for Friday.
So, welcome to a Feel-Good Tuesday edition of Feel-Good Friday!
Seven-year-old Drew Bausman loves United Parcel Service. At that age, you love a lot of things; your mom, pizza, Legos. But Drew’s singular focus is on the delivery company. It brings him a particular joy, according to his mother Becky Bausman in an interview with KMAX-TV in Sacramento. “Every time a UPS truck would go by, ‘UPS!’ ” Mom Becky Bausman said of Drew. His favorite color: brown. His Halloween costume? You guessed it. “So we got him a little uniform for Halloween and it stuck,” Becky said. “He started wanting to deliver packages to his friends and he told everyone who would listen that he wants to be a UPS driver when he grows up.” The UPS company got wind of this, and helped turn little Drew’s dream into a reality. “We heard that he loves delivering, loves UPS and loves bringing joy to – what we do – to other people,” said Ian Gettys, UPS driver. In a miniature truck decorated with flames and filled with packages, Gettys drove Drew to his school, Caleb Greenwood Elementary. Together, they announced their arrival. That is super cool for any kid to experience, but it is beyond wonderful when you get to see a special needs child’s wish fulfilled in this way. As you can tell from the video, Drew’s joy is uncontained. According to Drew’s mom, that’s the very reason why Drew loves the company: because UPS delivers joy. “Joy is kind of my platform as it relates to Down Syndrome because, to be honest, having a kid […]
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!
