Many are struggling in this economy. My family is among them. Please support what we’re doing here and help us to continue to spread the truth Americans need to read and hear.
Obviously, the war in Ukraine is a tragedy of monumental proportions. Over three million Ukrainians have fled their country in the aftermath of Russia’s invasion. While brave Ukrainians have put up a very stout defense of their nation, the Russians have been able to take control of some areas and are killing innocent civilians.
President Joe Biden has authorized $14 billion in aid, including robust supplies of military hardware, to assist the Ukrainians in defending their country. For many Democrats and Republicans this military aid is not enough. They claim we should help transfer military aircraft to Ukraine and enforce a no-fly zone over the country.
The problem is that each escalation of our involvement risks our country becoming engaged in armed conflict with the Russians, thereby commencing World War III. Too many politicians in Washington D.C. and members of the Deep State and elite media want to start a war with Russia. These beating of the war drums are dangerous and do not represent the will of the American people, who do not want to start World War III with the Russians.
Our country just ended a twenty-year war in Afghanistan with a horrific exit of our personnel that resulted in thirteen military service members being killed. After that experience, Americans are not ready to start a new war with a country that possesses 6,500 nuclear weapons.
On this issue, the American people are correct, but political leaders of both parties, especially Republicans, are dangerously wrong and are hellbent on war with Russia. For example, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich wants the full power of our country “unleashed” on Russia to not only stop their invasion, but also to defeat Russian President Vladimir Putin so thoroughly that he will be “ousted from power by his own government.”
While Gingrich advocates regime change in Russia, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is calling for the assassination of Putin. Graham tweeted, “for somebody in Russia to take this guy out. You would be doing your country — and the world — a great service.”
Fortunately, not all Republicans have developed hysterical war mania. U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) labeled Graham’s suggestion “an exceptionally bad idea.” As Cruz noted, no U.S. politician, nor GOP leader, should be “calling for the assassination of heads of state.”

Even the idea of a no-fly zone in Ukraine is problematic, according to U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL). He likened it to “World War III.” Rubio defined it as “the willingness to shoot down the aircrafts of the Russian Federation, which is basically the beginning of World War III.”
Cruz and Rubio understand there should be limits on our support of Ukraine. Despite the horror of the war in Ukraine, it is not a crisis which threatens the survival of the United States of America.
What does threaten our country are the extremely detrimental policies being advanced by the Biden administration. Instead of trying to oust a foreign leader, Republican leaders should be focusing on politically ousting the Democrats from power in this country.
The United States of America is facing a multi-faceted crisis impacting our economy, our educational system, our public safety, and our national sovereignty. The 330+ million people living in our country recognize the problems and are demanding action from our leaders. Unfortunately, our political leaders are either delivering the wrong responses or are willfully ignoring the problems.
The last fourteen months of the new Biden administration have been a horror show in America. Our once secure southern border has become wide open as over 2 million illegal aliens surged into our country in 2021. Incredibly, the rate is increasing in 2022.
While we allocated $14 billion to help the Ukrainians protect their borders and fight against the invading Russians, nothing has been allocated to finish our border wall and stem the flow of millions of illegal aliens into our country.
In addition, illegal aliens bring drugs, including fentanyl, which killed over 100,000 Americans last year. Illegal aliens take jobs away from law-abiding Americans and send money back to their home country, taking it out of our economy. They do not pay income taxes, while they receive many services that are funded by the taxpayers of our country.
While our problems multiply, our leaders are focused on the war in Ukraine. Of course, the human tragedy there is compelling, and we must aid the victims of that war; however, we cannot neglect the true suffering in our country.

American cities are crime ridden and the number of police officers shot last year reached a new record high. Along with soaring crime, poverty is on the increase as well. Our streets are filled with homeless people, including too many veterans, living in squalid conditions.
If Republicans beat the war drums too loudly, their voters will resent the attention being diverted from problems on the home front. For example, gasoline prices have reached a record and inflation soared to a 40-year high. Sadly, the wages of Americans are not keeping pace and people are falling further behind economically.
Under President Donald Trump, our country was energy independent. Incredibly, Biden made our country energy dependent again by a series of moves meant to inflict harm to our oil and gas industry. After the banning of Russian oil imports, we face the prospect of importing oil once again from tyrannical regimes. Of course, the answer is unleashing our energy industry, but Biden is too beholden to the “New Green Deal” fanatics who are so influential in his administration.
For our country to truly help other nations in need of assistance, we must fix our problems first. Republicans should be focused on America, not Ukraine. If not, they will pay a heavy price at the polls in November.

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!
