AP Photo/John Raoux Ron DeSantis fired back on Sunday at Gavin Newsom’s desperate campaign targeting Florida. The Democrat governor recently announced an ad buy in the Sunshine State, proclaiming that California is the actual beacon of freedom in the country.
Keep in mind that Newsom runs the most over-regulated, overbearing, overtaxed state in the union, to the point where you can’t even get a plastic straw. Never mind the soul-crushing COVID lockdowns that lasted years in California.
Per The Daily Wire , the ad Newsom plans to run has been revealed, and it’s as pathetic and out-of-touch as you’d imagine. Here’s an excerpt. “It’s Independence Day. So let’s talk about what’s going on in America,” Newsom says in the 30-second spot. “Freedom is under attack in your state. I urge all of you living in Florida to join the fight — or join us in California, where we still believe in freedom: freedom of speech, freedom to choose, freedom from hate, and the freedom to love. Don’t let them take your freedom.” You can only laugh. Newsom actually believes that leftwing platitudes about “freedom to choose” and “freedom to love” will resonate in Florida, where the economy is booming and people enjoy individual freedom on a level only rivaled by other red states. Imagine thinking people would want to leave that behind in order to move to a crime-ridden hellhole with exploding homelessness, high taxes, and a government that won’t even let you make basic decisions without interference.
But California allows drag shows in schools, so I guess that’s supposed to drive people out of Florida or something. Again, it’s just laughable, and DeSantis spokesman Dave Abrams fired back with the obvious retort. “Gavin Newsom might as well light a pile of cash on fire,” Dave Abrams, a spokesperson for DeSantis’s re-election […]
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 Giving Fuel. 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
- 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.
