Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., says Democrats are launching smear attacks against conservatives because they cannot stand on their record as Americans sour on crime, the economy and gas prices.
“They can’t defend the disastrous results of their policy,” Johnson told the John Solomon Reports podcast in an interview that aired Friday. “They can’t defend open borders and record high gas prices and 40 year high inflation.”
The average price of gas nationwide exceeded $5 per gallon for the first time in history earlier in June
“So all they can do is smear and engaged in the politics of personal destruction,” he continued. “All they can do is try and destroy their political opponents. And they’re very practiced to doing it. They’re very good at it. Yes. And it’s very unfortunate.” The Wisconsin lawmaker, who us up for re-election in November, spoke after the House Democrat-led Jan. 6 committee made a number of sensational allegations against Republicans, some that ultimately proved false.
Host John Solomon notably cited the case of Georgia GOP Rep. Barry Loudermilk whom the committee accused of leading a tour through the U.S. Capitol to familiarize rioters with the building’s layout. Capitol Police completely cleared Loudermilk, asserting that he never even entered the Capitol building with the tour group in question.
Likewise, Johnson was accused of attempting to hand then-Vice President Mike Pence false electoral information from his state, which was hotly contested and a focal point for allegations for voter fraud.
Johnson flatly denied the story and texts showed his staff actually decided not to have the senator deliver an alternate slate of electors to Pence.
The Wisconsin senator explained that he received texts from a Trump attorney attempting to get him to pass a document on Wisconsin electors to Pence, but asserted the attorney also was an “innocent bystander” in the episode.The […]
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!
