The Arizona PBS set for the U.S Senate debate on Oct. 6. (Source: Cameron Arcand) Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly, Republican Blake Masters, and Libertarian Marc Victor squared off Thursday night in a televised debate for the upcoming United States Senate election in Arizona.
The debate, which aired on Arizona PBS, covered the economy, border security, abortion, and water issues.
On the economy, Masters blamed President Joe Biden and Kelly for inflation.
“I will put a stop to Joe Biden’s crazy spending,” Masters said, adding that the president has spent like a “drunken sailor.”
“Sometimes the federal government has to step in to save small businesses, to protect livelihoods,” Kelly later responded.
Kelly said his own party and the president worsened the border crisis but also said Republicans have “politicized” the issue.
“Well call me old fashioned, but I think the correct amout of illegal immigration is zero,” Masters said and touted his endorsement from the National Border Patrol Council.
Later on, Masters and Kelly argued about abortion.“We all know guys like Blake Masters. They think they know better than anyone,” Kelly said.Masters said he supports both the 15-week ban on the state and federal level with exceptions. Arizona’s state-level abortion laws are the subject of confusion, as a recently passed 15-week ban with the exception for the mother’s life is conflicting with an 1864 ban that only allows a health endangerment exception from conception.When the issue of elections arose, Masters said he believes Biden is the legitimately elected president, and that he hasn’t seen evidence of widespread voter fraud. However, he did say that the decision by social media platforms to block a New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s business dealings tipped the scales in Biden’s favor unfairly.Kelly said that he is “okay” with voter identification.On water, Masters said Kelly is California’s “third senator,” and […]
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!
