Last Updated on October 3, 2022 GOP megadonor Jeffrey Yass has refused to support Doug Mastriano in the Pennsylvania gubernatorial race. Yass, the richest man in Pennsylvania, has contributed over $35 million to PACs in support of state Republicans since 2017. He has opted not to support Doug Mastriano’s campaign, however, after vehemently opposing his candidacy this past spring. Yass allies have claimed that Mastriano is unelectable and that he “wouldn’t be able to govern” if he defeats Shapiro this November. A number of GOP establishment entities have refused to get behind Mastriano, leaving a far-left candidate in Josh Shapiro with a sizable fundraising edge.
Yass built substantial wealth as an options trader and has given millions to GOP candidates and groups since 2015. In 2002, became a member of the board of directors of the Cato Institute, where he now serves as a member of the executive advisory council.
Over the last half decade, Yass has become one of the biggest political donors in the county. He donated $3.8 million to Club for Growth in 2018, followed by another $27 million to Republican candidates in 2020, placing him within the ten largest donors in the nation .
Now a Haverford, Pennsylvania resident, Yass has been quite active in state politics in recent cycles. Between January 2021 and September of this year, Yass has donated $22 million to the Students First PAC. While the Students First PAC does fund a handful of candidates and GOP organizations — including a $300,000 donation to the House Republican Campaign Committee — $16 million was transferred to the Commonwealth Children’s Choice Fund .
The Commonwealth Children’s Choice Fund supported former U.S. Attorney Bill McSwain for governor with a donation of $4.5 million. The PAC also gave $1.5 million to State Rep. Carrie DelRosso’s successful campaign for […]
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!
