Florida Democrat gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist was already facing a monumental task in his bid to topple enormously popular Republican incumbent Ron DeSantis and now he will be without the services of his longtime campaign chief who was arrested for domestic violence earlier this week.
Austin Durrer, who has worked for the former Republican-turned whatever you want me to be since 2016 stepped down this week to attend to a “family matter” which was later revealed to be a domestic dispute at his Cambridge, Maryland home where he was taken into custody on second-degree assault charges in a case classified as “domestic violence,” according to court records procured by Fox News Digital.
“Durrer was released on $10,000 bond after his arrest, and the court ordered him to surrender firearms and vacate his home,” the outlet reported , a major black eye to Crist’s flailing campaign that couldn’t have come at a worse possible time. Team Charlie is taking heavy criticism for not initially announcing the circumstances behind Durrer’s departure, especially since Crist has criticized DeSantis for not respecting women and has repeatedly positioned himself as a champion of women’s rights, emphasizing that he was raised with three sisters as one of his top talking points. Charlie Crist talks a lot about how much he “respects women.” But after his campaign manager was arrested for domestic violence assault 3 days ago, the @CharlieCrist campaign dismissed it as a “family matter.” No, it’s a criminal matter, not something to brush under the rug. pic.twitter.com/SLE9n8FpUC — DeSantis War Room 🐊 #FloridaStrong (@DeSantisWarRoom) October 21, 2022 “Very sadly, an incident took place this week at our home that we both regret. We are both working to drop legal charges and move forward,” Durrer and victim Jackie Whisman said in a joint statement to NBC News […]
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!
