Many Conservatives are getting frustrated with our GOP leadership, which has led to the rise of the outsiders. We’ve seen a lot of first time candidates over the past few election cycles, several of whom I’ve had the opportunity to interview on Freedom One-On-One, including Lauren Boebert, Burgess Owens, Mindy Robinson, DeAnna Lorraine, Buzz Patterson and JR Majewski. Moira McCabe joins that list of names as we discuss her campaign for governor of Oklahoma.
Moira definitely has a libertarian streak in her, which I can relate to, since I have a Classical Liberal streak to me, as well. However, I’ve recently realized that we need to have a more Conservative ideology when it comes to local politics, while I take a more Classical Liberal Perspective when it comes to the Feds. But even then, it’s simply classic Federalism and States Rights, which Moira and I dive into after talking about some of hot button issues of the day.
A huge problem that has been compounding over the past several decades is the expansion of the role of the Federal Government. We’ve gotten to the point now to where it’s a common held belief that Federal law outweighs State law, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
The Constitution severely limits the authority of the Federal Government, yet our government officials have completely ignored that. However, we cannot lay all of the blame on our Presidents, Congressmen & women or even the Supreme Court. We must lay a good portion of the fault with our state officials who have happily exchanged Federal funding for a larger and more expansive Fed.
We need governors who will not submit to a tyrannical and illegal government. They must hold to the Constitution of the United States, and if the Federal Government oversteps its authority, it is up to the states to check that power. To do so, it takes having a spine and the strength to take on the wrath that is the Federal government.
Moira McCabe is definitely an outsider. As a more libertarian candidate for governor of Oklahoma, it’s going to be more difficult to get the backing of the state GOP. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing… it could actually be extremely beneficial, as more conservatives are waking up to the fact that our GOP leadership is not on our side.

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!
