Arguably the most under-reported story out of DC this week has been the bombshell claim by Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn on a podcast and the subsequent spin by corporate media and the Establishment. He said he was invited to an orgy by a peer and that he’d seen others doing drugs. But instead of backing down to pressure coming from his “boss,” the young and idealistic Cawthorn doubled-down with a fresh statement on Friday.
Reports started coming out Tuesday and Wednesday that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had spoken to him and that Cawthorn was reversing his statement. As I noted Thursday, I wasn’t buying it, not until I heard Cawthorn himself walk it all back. He didn’t.
His statement started out with promise, but in the second paragraph I started assuming McCarthy had gotten him to reverse himself. The first two paragraphs read:
“Corruption and unethical activities exist in Washington. It’s an indisputable fact. If you don’t think that’s true, you’ve not witnessed the Swamp.
“My comments on a recent podcast appearance calling out corruption have been used by the left and the media to disparage my Republican colleagues and falsely insinuate their involvement in illicit activities.”
Uh oh. He said “falsely insinuate their involvement in illicit activities.” McCarthy must have forced him to walk back claims that colleagues on Capitol Hill invited him to an orgy and at least one used cocaine in front of him. Thankfully, the next paragraph is where he doubled-down on his assertion while still being a team player for the GOP.
Compromising activities occur because when other people can place you in compromising positions, they control you
“I’ve considered for several days how best to address this controversy. The cultural in Washington is corrupt. Human nature is fallen. Compromising activities occur because when other people can place you in compromising positions, they control you. It’s all about power — but my colleagues and I are fighting that corruption.”
This is exactly what I’ve written about a few times since he came out with his claim on the podcast. It’s all about manufacturing dirt against anyone that the powers-that-be cannot blackmail otherwise. They saw a young and impressionable Congressman and thought they could get him caught up in foul activities. As he said, it’s about control. Thankfully, he started exposing them and isn’t backing down.
The rest of the statement was appeasement for McCarthy. He claimed McCarthy would be Speaker of the House should Republican regain control of the lower chamber of Congress. It was properly worded and an unfortunate concession to McCarthy and the Swamp, but at least he didn’t walk back his claims that fellow members of Congress have attempted to corrupt him.
Here’s his statement:

As The Gateway Pundit noted:
Following his interview and his open discussion on the perversion in Washington DC, House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy DID NOT ask for an investigation into the DC perversion. Instead, GOP Leader McCarthy met with Madison Cawthorn and told him he needs to turn his life around or “there will be consequences.”
Once again, Kevin McCarthy played right into the Democrat Party’s hand. He has a habit of doing this. It’s almost like he’s on their side? Weird.
Here are the original claims by Cawthorn that has the Swamp concerned:
‘The sexual perversion that goes on in Washington … being kind of a young guy in Washington where the average age is probably 60 or 70, I look at all these people – a lot of them who I’ve looked up to throughout my life … then all of a sudden you get invited to like, ‘well hey we’re going to have kind of a sexual get together at one of our homes. You should come,’ like, what did you just ask me to come to? And then you realize they’re asking you to come to an orgy.’
He continued to discuss the drug component:
‘There’s some of the people that are leading the movement to try and remove addiction in our country and then you watch them doing, you know, a key bump of cocaine in front of you and it’s like wow, this is wild.’
Cawthorn is quickly emerging as a rare truthteller in Washington DC. Nothing scares the Swamp, Democrats, RINOs, or the Uniparty in general like someone they can’t control through bribes, bullying, or blackmail.
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!
