Today’s announcement that the government shutdown will be temporarily ended without a penny allocated for the border wall was a major blow to the President’s credibility, resolve, and reelection hopes… at least in the eyes of many conservatives. But they forget three important facts.
Before we get to those, here’s the speech:
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 25, 2019
Credibility can be easily reestablished if he’s able to get the wall deal done. Whether that means getting Congress to do its job or invoking some other measure such as a national emergency or 10 U.S.C. 284, so be it. The election is far away and if he gets the wall started soon, this cave will be meaningless.
Resolve in a futile situation is honorable in certain situations. When 800,000 people are getting hurt by the resolve, it must be drawn down. As with his credibility, getting the wall started soon will negate this hit on his resolve. In fact, he may be able to spin it as forcing Democrats to negotiate even though they wouldn’t talk about the wall otherwise.
As for his 2020 hopes, no, this cave will be meaningless if he gets the wall. If he doesn’t get the wall started before election day, it’ll mean everything. He will lose.
All the hot takes that come out today and all the weak analyses that follow over the next three weeks will all be thrown to the trash bin if he gets the wall started soon. If he doesn’t, this cave will come back to haunt him. Build the wall, Mr. President.
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!
