For residents within city limits of Portland, Maine, housing just became more expensive . More accurately stated, owning a house just became a lot more expensive. Living in a home as an illegal alien asylum seeker will be free, courtesy of leftist dementia having infected the city council.
In a vote on June 6th, Portland residents learned that they’d be paying an additional 4.8% on their property tax bill so that federally-placed asylum seekers could remain and live in their crumbling city free of charge.
Nobody asked for them, the Feds put them there, the stated law that the United States won’t accept “public charges” was ignored, and here are the local residents of just one of countless municipalities across the nation footing the bill for people that can afford to pay airfare and smuggling fees from halfway across the world. WGME, a local news station reporting on the taxpayer burden, broke down the math for readers:
“Portland property taxes will soon be going up by 4.8 percent. Last year, families with a $400,000 home paid about $5,200 in property taxes. With this new increase, it’ll be around $5,550 for that same home. That’s an increase of about $350.”
In total, the property tax theft, which once more reminds us that you never truly own a house and that you rent in perpetuity from the government, is expected to raise $9 million from people that can’t afford it and for people who don’t deserve it.
With everything else going up in price – food, gas, utilities, you name it – the hopelessly woke city council decided homeowners under their subjugation could afford to dish out hundreds of more dollars per year so that illegal aliens and the homeless could live rent-free in subsidized housing.
On one hand, Portland, Maine is a […]

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!
