Florida Governor Ron DeSantis punched back at his California counterpart Gavin Newsom after the left-wing Democrat ran a deceptive ad on the Fourth of July holiday weekend, inviting any residents of the Sunshine State who are disenchanted by its freedom and tough stance against groomers in classrooms to relocate to the Mecca for lockdowns, economic misery and moral degeneracy that is the model society for Democrats.
On Friday, the Republican leader delivered the facts on Newsom’s dishonest portrayal, skewering the greasy character who is emerging as many on the progressive left’s favorite alternative to the enormously unpopular – and flailing – President Joe Biden in 2024.
Speaking at a news conference in Cape Coral where he provided details on his executive order to lower the cost of prescription drugs for Floridians, DeSantis was asked about Newsom’s sleazy attack ad and didn’t hold anything back with an epic rebuttal that was a real crowd-pleaser. “Everybody wants to talk about me and Florida. I’m just sitting here, little old me, doing my job,” DeSantis said. “I can just tell you this. I was born and raised in this state and until the last few years, I rarely, if ever, saw a California license plate in the state of Florida. You now see a lot of them. I can tell you if you go to California, you ain’t seeing very many Florida license plates,” as the crowd clapped and laughed.

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!
