Many are struggling in this economy. My family is among them. Please support what we’re doing here and help us to continue to spread the truth Americans need to read and hear.
When I read the initial headlines, I was very pleased with President Trump. His push to prevent schools from quashing conservative voices on campus is a long-overdue move that gave me hope we might actually start seeing the stifling of free thought coming to an end.
Then I read the articles and had to scratch my head.
“Student loan debt, I’m going to work to fix it. Because it’s outrageous what’s happening. You’re not given that fair start. You’re too far down. It’s not right and we’re going to work very, very hard to get it fixed,” the President said.
If these exact words were spoken by a Democratic candidate for President, most Republicans and every true conservative would be up in arms talking about personal responsibility and the necessity for students to acknowledge the agreement they willfully entered into by going to a college they couldn’t afford. But since the words were spoken by President Trump, I’m hearing radio silence on social media.
Hundreds of conservatives have seen my Tweet, but few dare acknowledge it for fear of being seen as critical to the President.
If Bernie or Beto said this, Republicans would balk. "Student loan debt, I'm going to work to fix it. Because it's outrageous what's happening. You're not given that fair start. You're too far down. It's not right and we're going to work very, very hard to get it fixed."

But, that’s the minor part. As an optimist, I’m inclined to focus on the positive.
We absolutely need the government to stop funding institutions that refuse to allow freedom of thought on their campuses. It’s our lot in life that conservatism is spurned by educators and administrators in these progressive indoctrination centers, but that’s partially our fault. While conservatives were busy applying their knowledge to the real world, leftists filled the void to teach about it. It’s our long-running mistake that we allowed the halls of learning to become leftist reprogramming institutions. Now, our only recourse in the immediate future is to bring conservative perspectives in hopes of reaching those who haven’t had their logic and reason dismantled by university life.
The President’s actions are a great step towards making that happen. Just as funding Planned Parenthood is idiotic considering the political divide in which they operate (they donate millions to Democrats while receiving money from the government), it’s equally dysfunctional to pay schools while they work feverishly to subvert the very concepts that built this nation, including the Constitution, free speech, and the American exceptionalism that once relied on personal responsibility to hold account to our success as a nation.
Let’s hope nothing comes from the notion that schools are to blame for student debt. Instead, we’ll focus on schools being to blame for stifling conservatives and indoctrinating children. That’s the good news in all this.

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!
