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 […]
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!
