Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez missed badly when questioning former ICE Director Tom Homan on Friday. The video of her questions and his answers went viral on Twitter, marking one of the few times her army of
bots supporters were unable to quash an embarrassing misstep by the freshman Congresswoman.
But while many analysts and conservative pundits are praising Homan for “wrecking” her, as was noted in multiple headlines describing the back-and-forth, the reality is he simply told the truth. Perhaps his style and trademark red-faced passion helped push this assessment, but it was actually an unforced strategic error by the Justice Democrats who coached AOC to go after a single reply. She was unable to get that reply despite trying multiple times.
The goal was simple: get him to acknowledge that his primary, and possibly only, recommendation to former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was family separation. She essentially achieved her goal early on, but kept pushing to get a more direct answer. As a result, she gave him a forum tied to her in which he was able to assert asylum seekers should go to a port of entry instead of crossing the border illegally.
It was supposed to lead up to a future series of attacks on the President and his staff by demonstrating they went for family separation first and foremost. This can be then spun to be a racist response to the border surge, and her incessant use of the race card could then be validated thanks to Homan. But he didn’t take the bait. He rightly asserted the need to protect American citizens multiple times, and the “zero tolerance” policy that he recommended, among other things, was intended to achieve this goal.
Unable to achieve the goal set to her by her Justice Democrats handlers, she moved on to different questions to different people.
This isn’t just a battle for border security. It’s a fight for hearts and minds. Conservatives are on the right side of the battle, but we must not rest on our laurels even knowing we’re right. The left is devious and tenacious. We must persist.

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!
