The most predictable components of politics are reactions from the tribes when someone doesn’t abide by the approved script. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosentein is learning that all too well after delivering a speech defending the Mueller report. He was expected to follow the left’s talking points of the day that the redacted pieces of the report were part of a conspiracy and an ongoing cover-up to protect the President. Since he didn’t do as expected, the left is now in full-blown attack mode after propping him up for nearly two years.
The speech in question was delivered last night at the Armenian Bar Association’s Public Servants Dinner. As the progressive voice at the DoJ and the man who ordered Robert Mueller to investigate Russian hacking of the 2016 election, many have been spreading the story that he’s been silenced by Attorney General William Barr in an effort to protect the President. Now that his speech failed to condemn this President and threw some blame towards his predecessor, his days of being propped up as a leftist renegade within a conservative administration are over.
As if adding insult to injury against the left, Rosenstein had the gall to tell the world he believed the investigation was successful.
Today, our nation is safer, elections are more secure, and citizens are better informed about covert foreign influence schemes.
But not everybody was happy with my decision, in case you did not notice.
On cue, the left is hitting him as hard as they’ve been hitting Barr and even Mueller himself since the release of the report.
When preparing for societal collapse, don’t forget the water!

Short summary of tonight's speech by Rod R:
1. It was awful that Obama – who publicly outed the Russian plot – didn't do more to stop it
2. It's no big deal that Trump, and his family, and his campaign, still deny that it ever happened.https://t.co/KjIt7UJ1gI

So this is the part where #RodRosenstein becomes part of the massive coverup along with Barr, huh? Twitter would be amusing if it wasn't so predictable. And not sane…

Ladies and Gentlemen the white hat #RodRosenstein. He helped get Comey fired, he only appointed a Special Counsel bc he was trying to get himself out of birther's attacks and he thought he would be look good. https://t.co/yoM997Nx9c

I tried to give him a chance, but #RodRosenstein is like a human Roomba, he is just all over the place and he mostly sucks.

On his way out the door, Deputy AG #RodRosenstein unloads on Obama administration, pundits, former FBI Director & his perceived critics, while reverentially quoting Trey Gowdy and @realDonaldTrump. #Rosenstein is #WorthlessWimp & should lose pension!https://t.co/N4Vx18tPeN

So it seems that #RodRosenstein has climbed back on board the "but but Obama" train, and every stop is up Trumps ass.
Alas, not a surprise.

Either Rod Rosenstein is part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to cover up the President’s wrongdoings, or the report exonerates the President. Sadly, the left is latching onto the former because they can’t accept that they’ve been wrong for two years.
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!
