It isn’t common for an “October surprise” to blindside both sides of the political aisle, but that’s pretty much what happened with President Trump catching the coronavirus. Both sides prepared for the possibility, yet they seemed to still be completely caught off guard when it actually happened. Now, Democrats and mainstream media are trying to use it as an example of the President’s irresponsibility and the Trump campaign is using it as a sign of both strength and hope. Which side is going to win this particular battle?
Any other year, I’d say the GOP has the clear upper hand. After all, this is the United States of America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. But it’s also 2020, and that means too many Americans are giving up their freedom by living in fear. But here’s the thing. At our core, we are still a brave and generally optimistic people. That means we WANT to see a bright future. We WANT the “new normal” to be very much like the good ol’ days (you remember 2019, right?) when we could work and play and go about our business without fears of a disease with an extremely high recovery rate for those who are not elderly.
As Joe Biden’s campaign highlighted in a short ad they posted on social media yesterday, this comes down to a question of masks. Do we vote to reelect a president who is willing to take his mask off even after beating COVID-19 or do we vote in a new president who has embraced mask mandates to the extreme? By their ad, we can tell the Democrats are banking on mask mandates being popular.
This is a terrible ad.

On the surface, it makes sense for Democrats to go down this route. First and foremost, it’s the route they’ve been touting for months. Second, the President contracted the disease while personally minimizing his own mask-wearing. Third—and this point cannot be ignored—a majority of Americans want some sort of government-prompted protection from COVID-19, whether that means more mandates or even more lockdowns. That’s what the polling is showing today, at least.
They need us to live in fear. It’s not like Team Biden had a choice in the matter this late in the game; once they went down the road of fearmongering, they left themselves no potential to reverse their direction before election day. They’ve been banking on fear and the President testing positive gave them what they thought was an opportunity. Mainstream media has been bellyaching on their behalf ever since.
Once we dig beneath the surface, we see why this is not a great strategy for Joe Biden. First and foremost, they’ve been repeating the same basic coronavirus rhetoric for months and Americans have grown fatigued by the ubiquitous COVID-19 nannies everywhere. Second, the President got COVID-19 and beat it quickly. Take from that what you will, but many Americans will perceive this as a sign of strength, both physically as well as with his current stance of fighting back against Draconian mandates.
I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!

Flu season is coming up! Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu. Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!

As for the third reason Democrats have embraced their role as mask-nannies, the polls, there are two reasons why they’re making a mistake. The first is obvious: Polls suck. It’s been several years since polls were accurate in any way in American politics. But even if we call this a healthcare poll rather than a political poll, there’s another aspect that we’re seeing unfold before our eyes. As I mentioned before, we are generally optimistic people who want to face situations with courage. Now that the President has inadvertently made himself the ultimate example of both by getting and subsequently beating COVID-19, many who have lived the last seven months in fear have an example to follow. No, that doesn’t mean we can expect a mass reduction in mask-usage. But the President has made himself a shining example of a future without masks, without social distancing, without lockdowns, and most importantly without fear.
Democrats are scrambling to take advantage of the President catching COVID-19 by labeling him as irresponsible. But it’s backfiring. Americans are latching onto President Trump’s courage and hopefulness instead of the despair Democrats are peddling.

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!
