Saul Loeb/Pool via AP Although the House has yet to be officially called for the Republicans, a vote is expected to be held today on the GOP’s nominee for the new Speaker of the House. Current House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is the only declared candidate for the position, but Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), a member of the House Freedom Caucus, has hinted he might throw his hat into the ring.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) announced he won’t be voting for McCarthy, telling Charlie Kirk yesterday: “I’m making my announcement, which is that I’m not voting for Kevin McCarthy. I’m not voting for him tomorrow, I’m not voting for him on the floor. And I am certain that there is a critical mass of people who hold my precise view and so the sooner we can sort of dispense with the notion that Kevin is gonna be speaker, then we can get to the important work of actually looking at who are the people that Brian Fitzpatrick and Matt gates can agree on.” This follow’s Gaetz’s tweet from last week, saying McCarthy isn’t “a Speaker for these times.” Kevin McCarthy: Defended Liz Cheney when @jdanbishop first sought her ouster Told GOP Leadership Trump should resign after J6 Kevin is FLIGHT over FIGHT when the chips are down He is not a Speaker for these times Gaetz isn’t alone in his criticism of McCarthy. As we reported yesterday, the House Freedom Caucus began calling for a change in leadership soon after the results of last week’s election were clear: There have been calls from the House Freedom Caucus, the conservative wing of the Republican Party, to replace McCarthy as the party leader in their chamber. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), who may be considering his own run for the speakership, has […]
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!
