For years, the signs were everywhere for those who could see it. Governments aren’t prepared to deal with systemic crises, and when the Federal Reserve pumped massive amounts of liquidity into the banking system – first in 2008-2009 and then again in 2020 – this was a short-term fix that was bound to have long-term consequences.
No matter how you slice it, all roads lead to policy errors. The government will blame COVID-19 and geopolitical turmoil for the slow-motion economic collapse we’re witnessing in 2022, but it’s years of mismanagement that has actually brought us to this point.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was an unprecedented ramp-up in the Fed’s program of buying bonds and mortgage-backed securities – billions of dollars were purchased each month, even after the lockdowns ended in the U.S. On top of that, the Fed suppressed bond yields, to the point where real yields were negative.
Clearly, Fed Chair Jerome Powell wasn’t ready to disturb Wall Street and allow equity prices to go down. However, what’s good for Wall Street isn’t necessarily good for Main Street and hardworking Americans. The government will tout a seemingly low unemployment rate, but layoffs and hiring freezes are on the rise at companies ranging from Wells Fargo to Robinhood and Meta/Facebook.
Among the people who haven’t been laid off yet, many of them are struggling just to get by and worried that their job positions will be lost to automation and outsourcing. At the same time, there’s a shortage of skilled labor along crucial areas of the supply chain, as well as in critical-need areas like healthcare and education.
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!
