Many of our supporters reached out over the past couple of months wondering why we weren’t getting involved in the election. It seemed like we disappeared off the map right when a conservative movement was needed most. In reality, we did not disappear. With the American Conservative Movement in its infancy, we felt we better served the country by applying our efforts on channels that were more developed.
For example, my time was spent almost entirely on NOQ Report, both the website and the podcast. It reached over a million people a month, far more than what we’ve been able to achieve on this website in the few months that it has been active. We were working harder than ever to help conservatives win elections. We just weren’t doing it here.
A decision was made in the summer to stop splitting our efforts between helping with the elections and building this movement. Depending on what happened with the election, our direction as a conservative movement would shift slightly. That’s not to say we’re driven solely by elections, but it’s better to be positioned based on the current and future political atmosphere instead of trying to hammer down direction without knowledge of what the country needs.
Now that Democrats have control of the House, Senate, and White House, our direction is crystal clear. We must work just as hard opposing the radical progressive agenda that is emerging as we do with promoting a conservative philosophy. If the election turned out differently, our focus would be on reforming the GOP to adhere to their campaign promises. We will do that to some extent as well, but the specter of Neo-Marxism is creeping upon us. We have to fight that battle first and foremost.
Over the next couple of weeks, you will see activity at ACM ramp up. I will be meeting with Jeff Dornik, Sam Jones, and Ken Peters to solidify our direction and start planning out our next moves. In the meantime, stay tuned. We have a nation to save.
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 11,000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
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!
