When a young firebrand went to a speech by Democrat Francis “Beta” O’Rourke and confronted him about gun rights, a star was born. Since that fateful day in 2020, Lauren Boebert has been making news… and making waves on Capitol Hill.
The Congresswoman and her husband operated Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, until very recently. They were forced to shut down the grill after they were unable to renew the lease on the building. She claims there was no political motivation behind it, that the decision by the building owner was strictly business.
According to YahooNews:
Speaking to the publication, Boebert said her new landlord informed her that the restaurant’s lease would not be renewed after June.
“There wasn’t really much wiggle room or anywhere to compromise unless we bought the building ourselves,” Boebert said. She added that she was hoping to preserve the “Shooters brand” with her husband.
“It’s been an amazing journey. I don’t regret anything. It’s always sad to close a chapter. But this is where we’re at,” Boebert said, as reported by the Independent.
The lawmaker also floated the idea of reopening as a scaled-back eatery that could look “like a Shooters coffee shop with pastries and some easy breakfast sandwiches and merchandise,” the outlet reported.
CBS News reported the restaurant closed its doors on Sunday.
Pictures by the Independent and Twitter users showed a sign written in chalk outside the restaurant that read: “Thanks for the Support. Stay Tuned. #COVFEFE.”
She also teased reopening Shooters in a different location in her Twitter post on the subject:
Thank you to everyone who believes in what Shooters Grill has always stood for! We love you! pic.twitter.com/krromjMVG3

It’s unfortunate that a small restaurant in a small city that has recently reached icon-status is shutting down before many got to visit, but maybe we’ll see a different variation of it in the future. If we do, we can expect the employees to be packing.
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!
