Mark Twain said “It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.” Hillary Clinton proved the truth of this in one tweet about the terrible mass shooting in Las Vegas on Monday.
The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots.
Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.

“Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer,” she tweeted. All that shows is Hillary has no idea what a “silencer” is or does. It’s not as the James Bond movies or Hollywood portrays them. It’s not a tiny little “pfft” sound from a fully-automatic rifle as hundreds are mowed down. Anyone who has ever fired a rifle or understands the tiniest bit about firearms or chemistry or sound knows this.
Sound suppressors are designed to protect the hearing of the person firing the gun, not to eliminate the sound associated with a bullet leaving the barrel. All the suppressors do is slow down the exhaust gasses so they’re not so loud. They are like a muffler on a car–you can still hear the engine. A supersonic bullet leaving the barrel of high-powered rifle is still going to make a distinct “crack” sound.
In Las Vegas, Stephen Paddock, the shooter, very well could have been using a “silencer” to protect his own hearing. The people on the ground, and who made videos of the attack, would still be able to hear every shot with great clarity.
Thanks, Hillary, for revealing both your ignorance of firearms, and your agenda in politicizing a tragedy at the same time.
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 just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also 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!
