When we first set forth to build this site in April and to officially launch in June, our goals were aggressive yet singular. We simply wanted to be an alternative for those who appreciated conservative news aggregation but who didn’t want to be bombarded with constant pro-Trump propaganda. Sites like Drudge Report were attacking conservative candidates and principles, so we strove to push back with a purer message.
As the Republican Party quickly became the Party of Trump, we saw a new mission quickly forming. In July, we started researching the concept of launching a new conservative party. Research turned into desire. Desire turned into action. Action turned into a new mission. Suddenly, we were facing the dilemma of having two important and parallel yet overwhelming goals. How could a small group of people handle the pressure of two large tasks that required daily activities? More importantly, how could I be editor of The New Americana and also lead the formation of the new party while still having a business to run, a family to feed, and a God to serve?
I needed help.
Help has arrived.
After an exhaustive two month search through which I vetted several great candidates, I’m pleased to introduce our new Managing Editor, Suni Leinart.
Suni was born in flyover country USA. She grew up in a small blue-collar community ravaged by big government policies in a state long-battered by the progressive agenda with an unrivaled reputation for political, ethical and economic corruption. She graduated from a local college in 2002 as editor-in-chief of the school newspaper, worked as freelance journalist for local print media outlets, then as copy editor at a local newspaper.
I found her on one of our favorite sites, The Resurgent. Her perspectives were very similar to mine: smaller government, appreciation of life, and reestablishment of individual freedoms that have been systematically stripped from Americans for decades. She sees things from a slightly different angle; as a millennial, she represents the extreme energy of a younger generation than mine that must be harnessed if the conservative movement is to thrive in America once again.
While my focus shifts towards building the party, Suni will be able to find more writers (like you) and increase our flow of unique content. Unlike Drudge, we will be producing articles of our own that conservatives need to read, so having a strong managing editor is paramount. We want to be more than just an aggregator. We want to contribute to the cause directly.
Please take a moment to congratulate her. follow her on Twitter, and contact her with questions, suggestions, or your own desires to contribute. The need for conservatism in America has never been greater. Spread the word and help us make it happen.
