Image: Marjorie Taylor Greene, John Cornyn, Twitter Screenshots U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) slammed Republicans in the Senate who are helping Democrats “pass gun control” while the Supreme Court is “defending the second amendment.”
On Tuesday, the Senate took the first procedural step in passing the bipartisan gun safety bill when it voted 64-34 in favor of advancing the legislation .
The Senate is then expected to take a second procedural vote on the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act to wrap up the debate on the bill today.
Assuming that the vote will net more than 60 votes in favor, the filibuster will break and the Senate can then vote on the final passage of the bill and send it to the House for its vote.
As we reported earlier, the Supreme Court struck down a New York gun-control law today that required people to show “proper cause” to get a license to carry a concealed handgun outside the home in a 6-3 vote.
“While Republicans in the Senate are helping Democrats pass gun control, SCOTUS is defending the Second Amendment,” Greene said in a tweet. U.S. House Rep Bob Good (R-VA) sent a similar message in a tweet as he said, “Today, SCOTUS has sent a clear reminder that politicians cannot trample on the Constitution or ignore the 2nd Amendment.”
“Senate ‘Republicans’ in the Surrender Caucus take note!” Good declared. During a press conference yesterday, which Greene also spoke at, U.S. House Rep Lauren Boebert (R-CO) acknowledged the possibility that Republicans in the House may vote for the measure if it’s passed in the Senate.
“I’m sure we’ll even see some in the House, unfortunately, who have touted their support of the Second Amendment and Americans to have the right to keep and bear arms and they will fold,” Boebert lamented.
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!
