There has been much made of the release of the Trump-Zelensky transcript yesterday in which the private conversation between the two world leaders was released to quell calls for impeachment by the Democrats. And while it put Republicans at ease knowing nothing much was said while sending Democrats scrambling to turn nothing into something, there’s a major problem with this whole circus that will impact American foreign relations going forward.
Washington Examiner’s Social Media Director Will Ricciardella joined Liz Wheeler on her One America News show, Tipping Point, to discuss this troubling incident.
“I don’t think anyone’s talking about the damage it has done to America as a whole just because these people, these partisans or Democrats or the media don’t like Donald Trump,” Ricciardella pointed out.
“Right, because no foreign leader can have confidence that what he or she said to the President of the United States is going to stay confidential,” Wheeler reiterated.
There seems to have been very little choice on the part of the White House, especially if the whistleblower’s complaint, which may be released to the public as early as today, seems more damaging than what the actual transcript shows. This seems to be the most likely scenario, otherwise the White House could have simply kept the transcript confidential. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo received permission from President Zelensky before prompting President Trump to declassify the transcript, but there are still things said in there that would have been better off to have remained between the two leaders and their staff.
By pushing the Ukraine story all the way to an impeachment inquiry, Democrats have done long-term, potentially permanent damage to presidents going forward. If conversations are not sacred, leaders will be reluctant to talk to us.

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 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!
