We are seeing Minneapolis and other Democratically controlled cities moving to completely disband the police, defund them or make major cuts to their budgets.
Ilhan Omar, the Democrat Minnesota representative tweeted out that, “The Minneapolis Police Department has proven themselves beyond reform. It’s time to disband them and reimagine public safety in Minneapolis.”

First off, might I suggest that they reimagine what they want to do in replace of the police BEFORE disbanding them?
To-date, I have not heard anyone provide a coherent plan as an alternative to the police. I’ve seen a few people cite Camden, NJ, as an example of this. In reality, in that context, Camden simply replaced the city police with a county police system. Simply put, they replaced the police with the police. That’s clearly not what is being called for by the Black Lives Matter movement.
Here in California, we saw Mayor Eric Garcetti work to take $150M out of the police budget and redistribute that money towards the inner city. While guys like Bernie Sanders talk about taking money from the wealthy to give to the rich, Mayor Garcetti took things to a whole other level by taking from those risking their lives for not very much money to protect us, the citizens, to give to the inner cities. Eliminating 10% of the police budget is a significant cut. This is so far beyond progressive politics, it’s insane!
Why are we seeing all of this insanity happen?
First, we are seeing these progressive leaders negotiating with violent criminals. And by criminals, I don’t mean peaceful protestors. I mean those rioting, looting, assaulting and even murdering. I mean those that turn a blind eye to domestic terrorists like ANTIFA. Our very own government is negotiating with those promoting, or at the very least allowing, violence.
Second, we can’t get caught up in the short-term fights. We have to understand the long-game. The long-game, in my belief, is to nationalize the police force (or whatever they will replace the police with). If you look at history, the left always tried to nationalize everything, putting all control in one centralized place. This is what I believe that they are trying to do with the police. We’ve seen that with education, healthcare, economy, environment and so much more. Now it’s happening with law enforcement. This will cripple states’ rights, and put all power with the federal government.
This would be an extremely dangerous move that would essentially eliminate state control over it’s own laws & enforcement. Placing all power in the hands of a select few people in Washington DC will destroy the future of our country and allow for a tyranny unlike any we’ve ever seen in America.
As Americans who believe in the Constitution, we understand that the Founding Fathers established checks and balances to avoid tyranny. One of those was states’ rights and limiting the scope of the Federal Government. The Fed is already WAY beyond anything that the Founding Fathers intended for America, and we have to fight to ensure that this step is not taken. If we nationalize law enforcement, I don’t know how we can ever come back from that.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time.

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!
