One of the most important premises we started with when we first conceived of a new American Conservative Movement was the reality of truth. Conservatives have truth on our side. From issue to issue, policy to policy, and solution to solution, a conservative philosophy applied to each is the best way to preserve America’s prosperity and defend the freedoms of the people. When we stay true to conservative principles, we’re able to address the issues with policies that deliver real solutions.
Things have been ramping up more quickly than expected. Though the idea of forming an American Conservative Movement was birthed two months ago, it has been in the last three weeks that actions are being set in motion to form something tangible. Patriotic Americans are signing up rapidly to learn more about it. I’ve been meeting daily with new people who are interested in putting something together. Ideas are flowing freely. This is extremely important for this movement to be successful.
Multiple clocks are ticking. The 2020 elections are about to jump into high gear, so it’s time to start identifying candidates to support. But more importantly, America’s clock is ticking. The border crisis has been untenable for a while and solutions are being blocked left and right. Abortion laws are emerging everywhere. Some are positive, such as Georgia’s and Alabama’s. Others are very negative, such as New York’s. Meanwhile, the budget deficit is showing no signs of slowing as Capitol Hill’s addiction to spending permeates through every Democrat and many Republicans.
This is why our first update for the movement is actually a question:
What would you like to see the movement prioritize as we begin forming the organization?
It’s imperative that we understand the direction of the movement based on the priorities of the people in it. We’ve learned from past endeavors such as the Tea Party that when a handful of people set priorities without listening first to the people involved in the movement, it will invariably lose its way. That’s not an attack on the Tea Party itself, but we feel the momentum was lost because the people in the movement were ignored. We will not make that mistake.
Please reply and let me know what you believe we need to put at the top of our priorities list. I will read and respond to everyone. This will take time, of course, but it’s important to know the perspectives of the people up front so we can put together the right organization from its foundation.
There are so many incredible initiatives we’re considering now. If there’s one thing the left is better at than the right, it’s in promoting “big ideas.” Unfortunately, their “big ideas” are often counterproductive and always come with a big price tag. Conservative philosophies can be bold and renewing without wasting taxpayer dollars on concepts that don’t work. We do not want America to be like San Francisco. We want America to thrive because of exceptionalism and freedom.
Spread the word. The movement is just getting started. We’re excited to be at the heart of something we believe America desperately needs. We hope you’ll be a part of this movement as it grows.
We are currently forming the American Conservative Movement. If you are interested in learning more, we will be sending out information in a few weeks.

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
