Since before President Reagan made it popular, I’ve been a free trade proponent. I was not a fan of tariffs, and to some extent I still believe they should only be used as a last resort. But I’ve come to realize over the last year that there are valid reasons to promote an America-First “fair trade” policy, and that was before the coronavirus exposed the risks of “diverse” sourcing.
The reality is this: Too much power is given to China by the United States and other countries to control our product and resource distribution models. One needs only look to Apple, who has cut their output expectations by over 15%, to realize when you put all of your resource and production eggs in one basket, no matter how large, you run the risk of exposure if that basket gets tainted. Right now, China is tainted.
The world economic markets are going to shake and shimmy for as long as the coronavirus remains a huge problem in China. If it gets worse, many markets may collapse. But as it spreads to other countries, the economic toll is only going to worsen. The toll on human life is rightly getting most of the attention, but we should not ignore how this will affect billions of people who rely too heavily on China for products imported from there, including the vast majority of ingredients used by the healthcare industries to produce drugs, equipment, and even seemingly mundane products like surgical masks.
Today, masks are no longer mundane and nearly all of them are produced in China.
With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
The United States must continue to return to self-reliance. That’s not to say we need to shut out the rest of the world, but we must not allow ourselves to be beholden to any other nation, even China. Especially China.
This enlightening and oftentimes terrifying interview by Jan Jekielek with American Thought Leaders for The Epoch Times of Curtis Ellis from America First Policies is a must-watch. There are lessons DC and American businesses must learn from the coronavirus.

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!
