Following calls for action, the President announced today he’s calling on the DOJ to tighten restrictions and attempt to identify potential mass shooters before they’ve committed their crimes. He called out mental health, video games, social media, the internet in general, and mentioned involuntary confinement for those who seem to be a risk.
Hopefully, the outrage and knee-jerk reactions to this weekend’s mass shootings will subside without incident. The President is feeling pressure and many Republican lawmakers are calling for certain actions that fall short of infringing on the 2nd Amendment, but in doing so they’re ignoring the 5th and 14th Amendments. This is not an acceptable trade-off, but it’s a populist opinion that many on both sides of the political aisle share simply because they don’t think it’ll affect them.
That’s the reality. Those who support red flag gun laws are willing to subvert the Constitution simply because it’s unlikely to affect them or their constituents. This is the wrong way of addressing the problem. If anything, we need to be loosening gun laws, as our EIC noted yesterday.
Unfortunately, this is likely to gain steam. Popular Republican lawmakers like Lindsey Graham and Dan Crenshaw have signed on to support such moves despite their clear betrayal of due process. Red flag gun laws take away property without the presence of the victim being adjudicated. They are “temporary,” but that’s only doublespeak to justify the infringement of three rights protected by the Constitution.
America’s problem is one of hatred. It’s a spiritual problem above all else, driven by forces of evil and fueled by the anarchistic polarization that has taken over America’s political discourse. We need more faith, not more laws.

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!
