From the category of “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” comes this story from over the weekend. Admit it, watching poetic justice hit a pompous Biden Administration official squarely in the face can’t help but make you smile.
Airlines across the country, like just about every other industry in America, have been struggling for over a year now to properly staff their operations. They just can’t get enough people to come work for them, and with the employees that they have hired, they’re experiencing high levels of absenteeism. And there are several reasons why.
We have the Biden Administration’s “American Rescue Plan” which provided handouts to millions of would-be workers and paid them for doing nothing. Then there was the repeated extension of unemployment benefits by Mr. Biden, which incentivized workers to just stay home. And of course, we have the ridiculously high price of gas which makes it much more expensive for an employee to get to work. All these issues and more have resulted in the wage-price-spiral that we see today. Inflation is skyrocketing because employers must pay employees more to come work for them. But then that additional money employees have is worth less because of high prices. In addition to inflation, the other problem we see is a deterioration in quality, particularly in the service industries such as transportation. And that reality hit home this past weekend with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.
According to the Daily Mail: “Transport Secretary Pete Buttigieg got a taste of summer travel misery hitting millions of Americans after his flight from DC to NYC was canceled after a crisis summit with airlines. ‘That is happening to a lot of people, and that is exactly why we are paying close attention here to what can be done and how to make […]
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!
