Federal Judge Roger Benitez of the Southern California District Court delivered a crushing ruling that had Gavin Newsom nearly in tears claiming that the Cuban born judge who lived through the Cuban communist revolution was a “…stone cold ideologue” and “He will continue to do damage-mark my words!” Cam Edwards of the Second Amendment Foundation was recently interviewed on the NOQ REPORT UPDATE and was unequivocal in his praise: “This is real and this is absolutely beautiful”.
Roger Benitez’s scathing decision included this bon mot concerning so called assault weapons that “could just as well be called ‘home defense rifles’ or ‘anti-crime guns.’”.
Gov. Newsom is the object of a gubernatorial recall petition over his foreign criminal friendly sanctuary state policies. Don’t hold your breath while Gov. Newsom supplies you with reliable stats on murder by illegal immigrants in California that you’ve requested.
To get an idea on how serious the illegal immigrants crime wave can be one may consider Texas where the Texas Department of Public Safety conducted a study, quoted by the Heritage Foundation that summarized the staggering impact of illegals on crime numbers. Gavin Newsom, who is fond of keeping AR-15’s out of the hands of law abiding Californians, should take notice:
“…297,000 non-citizens had been “booked into local Texas jails between June 1, 2011 and July 31, 2019.” So these are non-citizens who allegedly committed local crimes, not immigration violations. The report noted that a little more than two-thirds (202,000) of those booked in Texas jails were later confirmed as illegal immigrants by the federal government. According to the Texas report, over the course of their criminal careers those illegal immigrants were charged with committing 494,000 criminal offenses. Some of these cases are still being prosecuted, but the report states that there have already been over 225,000 convictions. Those convictions represent: 500 homicides; 23,954 assaults; 8,070 burglaries; 297 kidnappings; 14,178 thefts; 2,026 robberies; 3,122 sexual assaults; 3,840 sexual offenses; 3,158 weapon charges and tens of thousands of drug and obstruction charges.”
Cam Edwards, spokesman for the Second Amendment Foundation put it thus: “[Benitez] gave the simple explanation as to why this ban is unconstitutional then he went into great detail refuting every one of State of California’s arguments about why this ban should be upheld,” With crime statistics surely worse in more populous California, the Golden State surely needs “anti crime guns”.
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!
