Remember when Joe Biden “solved” the baby formula shortage by flying in big Care Package-style shipments of the formulas in huge jets from Europe? It was embarrassing, given that the U.S. isn’t a typical recipient of foreign aid. But not to Joe Biden, who had the cameras all over it.
Turns out the big public relations show did nothing. It was about as effective as Joe Biden releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to solve high prices at the pump.
Same as the price of oil, the baby formula shortage is worse than ever. According to yesterday’s Marketwatch : A national infant formula shortage has forced some desperate parents to drive long hours and scour stores and websites to find a formula for their babies. For the seven days ending May 29, 73% of baby formula products nationwide were out of stock, according to Datasembly, a retail-tracking group. And in some states such as California and Georgia, the out-of-stock rates were at more than 90%. I visited Walmart in San Diego yesterday — and noticed that the sparsely stocked baby formula tubs in the store were in a a glass case, under lock and key, as one of the most valuable things in the store.
Abbott Nutrition, the Sturgis, Michigan-based producer of Similac and other baby formulas, has shut down again, this time due to bad weather. It had been shut down earlier based on safety allegations in its formula, charges the company denies, and was only allowed by the FDA to re-open 14 days ago. Well, it’s down again. The company is one of just four that make the nation’s baby formula, which includes specialty formulas for babies with digestive and food allergy conditions, who can’t consume anything else. AP reports that Abbott is the only company that supplies about […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
