Townhall Media Well, the people of Wyoming have spoken, and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) will soon be former Rep. Liz Cheney. Her challenger, Harriet Hageman, gave Cheney a sound drubbing, defeating her by 35 points.
Cheney, who seemed to expect her defeat, gave a concession speech in which she compared herself to Abraham Lincoln and further demonstrated why she lost. Democrats and the rest of the anti-Trumpers had the predictable meltdown on social media and the airwaves, lamenting the fact that their favorite warrior had fallen.
But while it is tempting to focus only on the fact that Cheney will be heading for the hills , it is also important to understand the significance of what has been happening over the past two years. This particular primary season is a bellwether of the metamorphosis of the Republican Party and the conservative movement, which has been embroiled in a civil war of sorts for the past six years.
When former President Donald Trump was nominated in the 2016 presidential election, it sparked a bitter feud between the Republican establishment old guard and the new “America First” movement, which sought to reshape the party. It was at this point that people began to realize that the days of the Bush/Cheney/Romney era were numbered.
Now, we are seeing another significant step toward the culmination of this conflict, and all indications suggest that the new breed of conservatives is swiftly gaining prominence while the old guard is receding worse than former Vice President Dick Cheney’s hairline. The ouster of Liz Cheney is yet another repudiation of the neocon establishment. Indeed, those who opposed the America First agenda by voting to impeach Trump are reaping the consequences, as Republican activist Scott Presler so aptly pointed out: So far, 8 of the Republicans — who voted to impeach President […]
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!
