CNN host Victor Blackwell questioned Democratic Rep. Judy Chu of California after the congresswoman claimed abortion was motivating voters Friday.
“As Democrats say this issue should motivate voters, there’s a New York Times/Siena College poll that asked about the most important issues for voters,” Blackwell said Chu. “It’s still the economy, inflation. In fact, for Democrats and independents, abortion rights doesn’t surpass inflation. It’s behind the economy and political divisions and gun policy. Is there any evidence that abortion rights is a topic that is motivating the voters you need to show up in November?”
WATCH: “Well, I have never seen such anger, outrage and terror amongst women in this country everywhere I go,” Chu, who introduced legislation that would secure the right to an abortion in all 50 states, responded. “Everybody is talking about this and talking about what we can do about it. So, women are very motivated, as well as the men who support them, to change things. And, in fact, there have been nonstop demonstrations and rallies around the country since the Dobbs decision three weeks ago.”
The legislation passed the House by a 219 to 210 vote Friday, CNN reported .
Blackwell pointed to polling data to push back on Chu’s claims.

“Again, the polls show that the economy, inflation and the other list of items I just read there are what’s really motivating voters more than abortion rights,” Blackwell responded.
The Supreme Court upheld a Mississippi law that banned most abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, overturning Roe v. Wade. Democrats began fundraising off the Dobs decision almost immediately, but some efforts to use abortion to save Democratic […]

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!
