Young people are far less susceptible to both Covid-19 infections as well as serious symptoms. Healthy people, such as track and field stars, are also considered to be safer than most. Being outside away from others is a surefire way to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Why, then, did Oregon force high school junior track star Maggie Williams to wear a face mask while competing?
It’s an asinine policy that has thankfully been reconsidered, but only after Williams passed out at the finish line of a record-breaking race.

It could have been much worse as she struggled to retain consciousness on her way to the ground. She had never passed out during or after a race. It was clear to her and others that the face mask caused the lack of oxygen that sent her plummeting.
Following Williams’ experience, the Oregon health officials changed the guidance to allow students to not wear a mask for non-contact, outdoor sports. She, her father, and her coach were on with Fox News host Laura Ingraham. Her father noted the Biblical component of how her fall opened things up for other athletes in the state.
Lunacy is abundant when it comes to face masks, but there are changes being made. How many more people must be hurt by the mandates before government realizes acknowledges they’ve been playing us for fools?
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
