The ranking member of the House Foreign Relations Committee, Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY), has called on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to step down from her leadership position after her disrespectful actions immediately following the State of the Union address by President Trump Tuesday. The Speaker stood and ripped up her copy of the State of the Union address given to her by the President.
Nancy Pelosi should step down as Speaker. I'm confident that the American public will be directly sending her that message themselves later this year if she doesn't read the tea leaves herself and resign on her own terms today. It's time.

After her allegedly spontaneous action, video demonstrated that she pre-ripped the pages in the middle of the speech in preparation for her staged act of resistance. Representatives Matt Gaetz and Paul Gosar have filed separate complaints against the Speaker as a result.
With Pelosi in charge of Congress and a Democratic Party majority still in place, it’s unlikely anything will come from the complaints. Zeldin’s call may be the only thing to remove her before the November election, at which point Republicans hope to regain control of the House.
Defenders have said Pelosi’s actions were justified based on the content of the speech, but it has been well-received by most Americans, including many Democrats. It was mostly positive and upbeat with strong emotional content that exemplified where we are as a nation and where we’re heading. Many Democrats are bitter over the success the nation is experiencing as unprecedented prosperity, low unemployment rates, and improved national security have marked the President’s first term.
Moreover, the months leading up to this election year have been especially good for America. Our terrorist enemies are being eliminated while our national enemies are on the ropes. Violent crimes are trending downward despite calls by gun control advocates that everyone is in danger because of the 130 million Americans who own firearms. The unemployment rate has been at record-low levels for seven consecutive months. The only political plays the Democrats have in their playbook are impeachment, which failed, and the unhinged “Resistance” movement which Pelosi is apparently now leading.
It was unbecoming for Nancy Pelosi to utilize such a blatant publicity stunt to take attention away from the Democrats’ multiple failures this week. She does not represent her caucus well, let alone the lower chamber. Her time is up as Speaker.

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!
