I often get into arguments with fellow conservatives who are open to “common sense gun safety measures” like background checks, bump-stock bans, and Red Flag Gun Laws. Their argument is very persuasive and quite logical; we need to compromise regarding certain safety concerns and proposals that fall short of gun confiscations are acceptable within the framework of the 2nd Amendment.
The points they make are valid and I could support them if I didn’t know what happens whenever we give an inch. This isn’t the Democratic Party of Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton. It’s pushing much further to the left than even the party of Barrack Obama. There’s a growing wing within the Democratic Party that desires absolute gun control and they’re doing everything they can to pressure ALL Democratic lawmakers, especially presidential candidates, to join them.
The choice they’re giving Democrats is this: support hyper-leftist radical progressive ideas or become unemployed.
A column in USA Today highlights the sentiment of this hardcore adherence to far-left principles. The author, Candid Camera’s long-time host Peter Funt, compared Senator Kamala Harris’s (D-CA) ownership of a handgun for personal protection to the NRA’s stance on weapons.
“Kamala Harris doesn’t seem to have the courage to concede that owning a handgun for protection is a bad idea. Instead, she has given voters a real choice: Back candidates who care enough about gun control to not own handguns, or support the only major Democratic contender who has one and won’t throw it away.”
Funt, as gun-confiscation advocates are wont to do, tried to bury the benefits of self-defense by throwing out statistics about how most violence against women is perpetrated by people they know and how most attacks on women happen at home. They never highlight the incidents when a woman was able to avoid kidnapping, rape, or murder because they carried a firearm. To them, such examples must never be discussed as anything other than statistical anomalies.
This is victim shaming. It may be cleverly disguised, but their policies and the way they defend them demonstrate how the New Democrats do not want anyone to hear about women who were victimized (yes, even if they escape from an attack because of a handgun, they are still victims). If they lose their guns and subsequently lose their lives, the left will conveniently sweep them into a different category that suits their political needs.
Nobody other than radical progressives like Funt would call Kamala Harris a supporter of the NRA. But to the New Democrats, anything short of completely disarming the people is unacceptable. Watch your six.
Petition Capitol Hill for Term Limits
Sign the petition. We demand Congress immediately put together legislation that spells out term limits for themselves. Americans need to know who is willing to suppress their own power for the sake of the nation. This can only happen by bringing legislation to the floor.

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!
