Conservatives are hard to come by on Capitol Hill. Even when the GOP has a majority, it seems that there are only a handful of actual America-First constitutional conservatives on the floor, especially in the Senate.
But there’s an even rarer breed of lawmaker on Capitol Hill: Those telling the truth about Covid-19 vaccines. Senator Ron Johnson happens to be one of them, which is why I’m happy with his anticipated announcement that he’s running for reelection this year.
Why would I even consider being concerned? Because if he runs, he’s breaking his promise. When he ran in 2010 for the first time, he promised he was only going to serve for two terms. A win in November would launch his third term in office. Normally I rail against politicians who break their word. At such a time as this, we have to be flexible with the good guys because, frankly, there just aren’t very many of them left.
Johnson is one of them. According to The Daily Wire:
Johnson, one of former President Trump’s staunchest allies in Congress, previously declined to say whether he was running for another term in the Senate, but CBS News reported that Johnson is being pressured to run again.
“I never anticipated the importance of continuing to uncover the corruption,” Johnson told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel last month, via CBS News. “But also just this moment, right here, this is crucial that Republicans retain this Senate seat and I think just about everybody I talk to says I probably have the best chance of doing that. And that puts a fair amount of pressure on me to do that. No, I mean, look, when I made that pledge, when my wife (Jane) and I made that pledge, that was our very strong preference.”
CNN also reported Friday that Republicans were “growing bullish” that Johnson would announce he was running again, with one source saying that Johnson could make an announcement as soon as next week. The outlet cited several anonymous sources who said that Senate Republicans have the “distinct impression” that Johnson is going to run again, and “would be surprised if he did not.”
Johnson, for his part, has been mum on the subject. “I’m not ready to say anything,” Johnson told CNN. Asked by the outlet if he was going to announce his campaign next week, Johnson simply said, “I do all kinds of events.”
Johnson stood by President Trump’s side even as others were jumping ship immediately after the 2020 election. He supported those who participated in the January 6 mostly peaceful protests. Most importantly, he’s helped to shine a light on various Covid-19 issues ranging from its origins to early treatments to vaccine hesitancy.
He’s far from perfect. At times, he’s seemed to be a little more moderate than I like in a Senator. But even on his worst days he’s more conservative than 80% of Republicans in the upper chamber, so I would be concerned with getting someone less potent and freedom-minded if he did fulfill his promise to retire after two Senate terms.
I wouldn’t go so far as to endorse him yet. We don’t know who’s in the field at this point. But if he stays in the Senate another six years, I’ll be happy with that result.
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!
