Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes is the latest Democratic candidate to distance himself from President Biden as the midterm elections draw closer.
A national poll published Wednesday found that Biden’s approval rating has dropped to 38%.
Barnes is running against incumbent GOP Sen. Ron Johnson. Barnes’ campaign said he has three other campaign stops on Labor Day , Sept. 5, which is the day of Biden’s visit.
“The Lt. Governor is excited to participate in Laborfest events throughout Milwaukee, Madison and Racine,” said spokeswoman Maddy McDaniel . “His priority is talking to Wisconsin voters and supporting the labor movement that gave his family a ticket to the middle class.”
In July, Rep. Tim Ryan , the Democratic nominee for Senate in Ohio, also missed an event with Biden.
“We have no interest in them or any other out-of-state surrogates,” said Ryan’s spokesperson, according to the New York Times. “I don’t think that’s going to change anytime soon.”
The distancing has extended beyond skipping events and into policy.
Nevada Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto has publicly opposed Biden’s student debt forgiveness program, which he implemented unilaterally.”We should be focusing on passing my legislation to expand Pell Grants for lower income students, target loan forgiveness to those in need, and actually make college more affordable for working families,” she said.Ryan shared a similar view on Biden’s debt forgiveness plan.”As someone who’s paying off my own family’s student loans, I know the costs of higher education are too high,” Ryan said in a statement. “And while there’s no doubt that a college education should be about opening opportunities, waiving debt for those already on a trajectory to financial security sends the wrong message to the millions of Ohioans without a degree working just as hard to make ends meet.”Ohio Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur released an ad in August that […]
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!
