Opportunity. It’s why we all came here. For generations, immigrants have brought the varying flavors of their life experiences to America, enriching and revitalizing our culture in the process. They came for freedom from government, with no expectations of relying on it.
Yet some multigenerational American families—having grown accustomed to our legal structures, living standards, economic dynamism, and unbounded opportunity—take these distinctly American values for granted. Leftist assaults on the traditional values of faith, hard work, and the profit motive arrive daily.
America’s story is one of immigration . The “New World” flowed from the discoveries of European explorers. Waves of largely Anglo-Saxon Protestants created the substructure of what became the American republic. Until the early 1800s enslaved people were brought from West Africa, followed by a massive wave of largely impoverished Irish. In rapid succession: Germans streamed into mid-western cities. Asians came to California. Throngs of Eastern and Southern Europeans brought foreign tongues, different hues of Judaism, and cultural benefits that helped make us “who we are.”
Arriving under vastly differing circumstances, these people shaped our mix and our culture. The beauty of America is that there’s no single answer to “who we are.” We’re a hopelessly optimistic people with an ever-changing cultural mix. We’re the great melting pot. That’s a large part of what makes America exceptional.
Most recently, the massive influx of Hispanic immigrants has embraced and invigorated America. From 2001 to 2015, more than 50 percent of all population growth in the United States has been from Hispanic immigration. More than 19 percent of the U.S. population is now Hispanic—bringing a culture that’s fiercely family-oriented, religiously observant, and hard-working. Hispanic priorities and work ethics resemble those of the immigrants […]
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!
