Why we’re adding Breitbart back to the mix… for now

Published

on

When we first launched this website, we did so to be a counterbalance against two powerful right-leaning news forces: Drudge and Breitbart. Both were very much in the back pocket of then-candidate Donald Trump, attacking conservative candidates like Ted Cruz and making excuses for every liberal or idiotic notion proposed by their chosen one.

Things have changed. Drudge has been subdued in recent weeks, spending less space promoting Trump’s agenda but also ignoring stories that damage him; currently, Sebastian Gorka’s resignation/termination is conspicuously absent from the site, for example. That’s not to say we won’t call them out when they lurch left or promote an alt-right agenda, but for the most part they’ve been under the radar for a while.

Breitbart is different. There’s always been conflict about how to handle the site because of the diversity of thought. It’s easy to take left-wing propaganda sites like HuffPo or Buzzfeed and ridicule their attempts to manipulate minds through spun narratives, but sites like Breitbart are different. Sometimes, they’re posting outrageous articles that do damage to the small-government, freedom loving movement embodied by federalism. Other times they are on the right side of the argument, often leading the discussion and boldly exploring topics from angles others wouldn’t touch.

The removal of Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka from the White House and their subsequent returns to Breitbart are interesting. While both still represent a destructive element in conservatism – namely the “alt-right” – they are also correct on some issues. Moreover, they seem to be the “MAGA purists” that compelled so many people to vote for Donald Trump in the first place.

To be perfectly clear, our mission at The New Americana has not changed. We want to promote conservative and federalist messages to the masses in an effort to educate the general population about the need to rein in DC. We do not support Republicans or Democrats. We support America, which means that we will call out members of either party when they push for expanding DC’s overreach and we will cheer them on when they shrink government to fit better inside the Constitution.

We haven’t changed, but Breitbart might. We’re willing to give them that chance. If they’re going to focus on being defenders of freedoms, calling out corruption and government expansion in DC, we will post those stories. If it turns out they’re going to continue to be a mouthpiece for the Trump agenda of growing DC, economic isolationism, and alt-right principles, we’ll take them off just as quickly.

Bannon and Gorka learned that embracing a lifetime liberal Democrat as their vehicle for change was stupid. What they couldn’t do from within Trump’s swamp of Ivanka, Kushner, Tillerson, and Mnuchin, perhaps they’ll be able to do from Breitbart. In the coming weeks, we’ll learn whether Breitbart is an ally to the small-government federalist cause or not.

    I will watch with a very skeptical eye. The alt right has never been a Conservative or Constitutional element of the GOP. They are weak minded populists and in many cases blatant white nationalists. Steve Bannon intentionally gave them a platform. The cause of Liberty cannot be advanced by those who would deny the Liberty of others.

      I’m not hopeful, but willing to give it a chance. Won’t take long. Will reevaluate next week.

    As much as I would love to have the Breitbart of old, I cannot follow links to the Breitbart of today. They’ve done too much damage to conservatism and have become a home to those to far too many anti-semites.

      Chances are pretty strong that we’ll come to the same exact conclusion. Funny… we were searching for good stories today and came up with exactly zero. Not giving up, but not hopeful.

How exploding diaper costs demonstrate the crisis at the border

How exploding diaper costs demonstrate the crisis at the border

Democrats have been caught in a feedback loop for months over border security. They can’t reconcile their narrative with the reality at the border, yet they continue to repeat the same talking points for leftist media to regurgitate to the masses. But one look at the cost of diapers and other baby supplies should be enough to alert people that the border crisis is real and getting worse every day.

According to a Yuma Sector report, CBP is on track to pay over $1.2 million for diapers, formula, and other baby supplies due to the rising number of illegal immigrant and asylum-seeking migrant families crossing in the region. Last year, baby expenses totaled around $300,000, marking a cost increase that has quadrupled year-over-year.

That doesn’t take into account the multitude of families who are released to the interior where the baby expenses are paid for using other means.

The left may be able to play “hammer the narrative” by spinning the media in their favor based solely on their collective hatred for President Trump, but numbers don’t lie and neither do the CBP reports. They’ve done everything they can to ring the alarm bells, but DC continues to stick its head in the sand. There’s always a more important topic to cover. Horror stories at the border have become so commonplace that many have been desensitized to them.

Slowly but surely, the left is winning the narrative battle by making people yawn every time the border crisis is brought to their attention.

America needs to address this problem immediately. There should be nothing higher on the agenda of lawmakers on Capitol Hill than to get more agents to the border, better technology, more beds, better supplies, a wall, and better laws with fewer loopholes through which illegal aliens and asylum-seeking migrants can wiggle their way into staying in the country indefinitely without going through the proper legal channels.

It isn’t just about the exploding diaper costs, though. There’s a negative trickle down effect that’s at play here helping dangerous people cross the border unnoticed. Every agent that’s made to act like a daycare employee for migrant children is an agent who’s not stopping drug smugglers and gang members from crossing illegally in the dead of night. Every agent who’s forced to be a paperwork clerk to the masses of migrants signing up for their pass to the interior – aka waiting for an asylum hearing – is an agent who could be stopping terrorists from coming into the country to wage war against American citizens.

The border situation is so far beyond a disaster it’s impressive how neglectful the media and Democrats have been able to be. This level of denial is unprecedented in American politics. Meanwhile, our sovereignty is slipping away.

Rep. Seth Moulton enters the Democratic nomination race

Rep Seth Moulton enters the Democratic nomination race

The clown car continues to fill up as a new Democrat announces their presidential campaign seemingly every week. This time, it’s Representative Seth Moulton (D-MA), marking the third politician from Massachusetts to vie for the top spot. He joined Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and former Republican governor Bill Weld as hopefuls from The Bay State.

An Iraq War veteran from the U.S. Marines, Moulton led efforts to replace Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi once the Democrats won back control of the House last year. His politics are pretty much indistinguishable from other candidates as he favors Medicare-for-All, gun control, and other common leftist notions.

Moulton has a tall mountain to climb on the fundraising side if he hopes to make it to the main debate stage. There’s still time, but he’ll need to get some heavy attention very quickly to be able to make a serious run.

PragerU: Is Denmark socialist?

Is Denmark socialist

Not too long ago, many socialist, including presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, thought the model of the future for America was Venezuela. They saw the prosperity that the oil-rich nation was enjoying in its early days of socialism and said, “That’s us. That’s where America needs to be.”

Fast forward to today and suddenly every socialist is disavowing Venezuela altogether, claiming that the model of America was never really the model they thought it was and it’s not even real socialism. Why? Because it failed. Therefore, by the socialists’ reckoning, that must mean they didn’t do it right.

Now, Denmark is suddenly the model for America’s future. But there’s a problem. Denmark is a free-market nation that has been peeling away at its socialist foundation for decades. While they enjoy some of the most robust social programs in the world, they’re doing so at such a high price that the people are left with very little other than the essentials. Yes, they have free healthcare, but more citizens are turning to private insurance to bypass the poor treatment and long wait times associated with single-payer healthcare. Yes, they have free schooling, but grade-level students are being shifted to private schools at nearly a 20% pace while the “free” college system is being taken advantage of by those who are clever enough to realize they’re better off staying in college indefinitely than graduating and being thrown into the world of working to pay for the system.

This video by PragerU’s Otto Brons-Petersen breaks down the reality of the socialist utopia leftists often point to as their beacon of hope for a failed economic and political philosophy.
