AP Photo, File The FBI paused for a moment last Sunday from the persecution of pro-lifers , parents who attend school board meetings , and Trump supporters to arrest an actual terrorist. Clearly, the agents involved have gone rogue and departed from the Biden-era FBI’s focus on crushing what Old Joe called “an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic,” which emanates, of course, from “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans.” But in their little extracurricular excursion back into reality, the feds netted a live one: Mohammad Rafi Mohammadi, an Islamic State (ISIS) operative who was living in Kansas City. Back in Afghanistan, Mohammadi had been a translator for the Department of Defense. And that fact points up a great deal of what is wrong with our entire counterterrorism approach — not that anyone in the FBI or DoD will notice.
The Kansas City Star reported that Mohammadi, “a Kansas City area man,” was “once employed under contract as a translator in Afghanistan for the U.S. Department of Defense,” but is now “accused of lying about his contacts with two recruiters aligned with the ISIS group that was responsible for the bombing of Kabul’s airport in August 2021, which killed 13 American service members.” Mohammadi now “faces one charge in the U.S. District of Kansas of making false statements in reference to obtaining his security clearance, a crime that carries a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison.”
That means that if Mohammadi is convicted, he will be back out on the streets well before five years are out, and then the Defense Department can rehire him. It’s inconceivable that the DoD would do such a thing, right? Well, they already made multiple mistakes in dealing with him, so what are a few more? “According to an […]
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!
