We have a contender for this year’s “Worst Excuse for Failure” award. White House economic adviser Cecilia Rouse was trying to make excuses for the horrific jobs report from April. One of her excuses was that Easter fell in March this year, prompting the bad April report. Even if we set aside the obvious question of what Easter has to do with a jobs report, we cannot dismiss the fact that Easter was on April 4th this year.
April 4th does not fall in March, even for Democrats.
Keep in mind, she’s not just any economic adviser. She’s Joe Biden’s Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers and a former dean at Princeton. But as leftists often do, she was struggling to make excuses for the disastrous jobs report while sidestepping the blatantly obvious answer that Biden’s job-killing Covid rewards program is killing the economy.
According to The Gateway Pundit:
Last Friday the April jobs report was released and it was so bad that it even stunned the talking heads over at CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” CNBC host Steve Liesman had to do a doubletake when the jobs numbers came across his desk.

Unemployment increased and hiring stalled; it’s the worst miss since 1998. 18,000 manufacturing jobs were lost and the economy added only 266,000 jobs.
“Hiring was a huge letdown in April, with nonfarm payrolls increasing by a much less than expected 266,000 and the unemployment rate rose to 6.1% amid an escalating shortage of available workers,” reported CNBC.
The bad jobs report was a result of Biden’s policy to pay people more money to sit at home and NOT WORK. But his economic advisor blamed it on Easter and she couldn’t even get that right.

She couldn’t help but blame the late push for vaccines as well. None of that jibes with the jobs report the month before when even fewer people were vaccinated and the numbers weren’t nearly as bad. In other words, they’re scrambling for any reason other than the truth.
What we heard today from the White House about the jobs report was a lame excuse on top of a gaffe wrapped in a false narrative to support a horrible series of policies. But at least there are no mean Tweets.
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!
The Biden regime is destroying our economy, putting your property and financial security at risk. What's worse is that they are discouraging the purchase of precious metals as they try to salvage their midterm election fortunes. Buy precious metals from an America-First patriot.
