The Republican Party is split on several issues. That much has been made clear in the last few weeks, and it’s not just RINO versus America First conservatives. NeoCon tendencies of those formerly believed to be America First have been on display with the Russia-Ukraine war, amongst other issues. Tonight, two conservative powerhouses clashed over it.
Commentator Mark Levin showed his warmongering side by trying to shame those of us who do not believe we should get involved in any way in the regional conflict in eastern Europe. He called those who object to sending $40 billion in aid to Ukraine “Putin ass-kissers.”
1. For the Putin ass-kissers out there who say why don’t we focus on the baby formula crisis rather than Ukraine, the baby formula problem pre-dates the Russian invasion of Ukraine. And it’s not about federal funding but government incompetence. Damn fools.
2. Some are confusing America First with a pro-Putin propaganda operation and Bernie Sanders hate-America foreign policy doctrine.

Congressman Paul Gosar pointed out the flaws in his reasoning:
Calling us names is not a logical position. I have no principle to follow but the path of peace and non-intervention. My grown children have known nothing except American war and intervention for naught. All losses: in men, material, time, and treasure.
Ukraine is not our ally. Russia is not our enemy. We need to address our crippling debt, inflation and immigration problems. None of this is Putin’s fault.

While I disagree with Gosar’s assertion that Russia is not our enemy, I agree with everything else. But just because I believe Russia is our enemy and has been since before the fall of the Soviet Union doesn’t mean that I think we need to help fight them over Ukraine, which Gosar rightly pointed out is not our ally.
Giving that much aid to Ukraine is definitely helping them and will be looked on terribly by Russia. Imagine if Russia had given $40 billion to Saddam Hussein when we invaded Iraq.
Putin is our enemy.
Rushing headlong into WWIII is idiotic.
NO, we're not kissing Putin's ass by not wanting to get involved in a regional conflict.
And YES, sending aid is getting involved.
When did you become a NeoCon? Or was I just not paying close enough attention?

Democrats are hoping to stoke as much conservative-on-conservative conflict as possible. We need to accept that any two conservatives are going to disagree on certain issues and have discourse instead of name-calling.
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!
