Another storied American institution, the Boy Scouts of America, looks as if it may be set to declare bankruptcy before the year’s end, presenting serious challenges to the future of the national organization.
The Boy Scouts began as a civic endeavor to instill the values of resiliency, self-dependence, and teamwork in America’s young men all the way back in 1910.
Now, the organization seems to have forgotten many of the principles its original founders sought to advance in society- beginning to resemble just another organ of cultural progressivism in America.
The Boy Scouts of America, or BSA, began to alienate many of the generational patrons and participants in the organization when it embraced radical changes to its mission with the hopes of pleasing coastal elite progressives and liberals. The final straw for many came when the Scouts announced they’d become a gender-inclusive organization, turning their back on their original vision of being a young men’s organization to cater to both boys and girls. The female equivalent of the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, were less than happy with the organization’s decision, and are in ongoing litigation over a proposed name change of the Boy Scouts to merely ‘Scouts.’
Official membership of the BSA had plummeted when it ceased to be a young men’s organization. The group recently hired bankruptcy lawyers to chart a path forward.
Changes to the Boy Scouts led to one of oldest supporters, the Mormon Church, severing its longtime relationship with the organization. The LDS (or Mormon) Church had objected when the Scouts decided to allow openly gay adult men to serve in leadership roles within the organization, and it had seemed making the Scouts co-ed was the final straw.
The Scouts had also been troubled by a series of child abuse lawsuits dating back decades, which in some respects resembled the epidemic of pedophilic abuse seen throughout the Catholic Church. Court rulings in favor of abuse victims may have played a part in making the organization’s finances untenable, and declaring bankruptcy would lift the many of the financial obligations incurred from abuse lawsuits.

Matt Gaetz Makes America First Pledge to Refuse All Campaign Contributions from Political Action Committees
Gaetz’s pledge is unprecedented for a conservative Republican.
Congressman Matt Gaetz made a seemingly unprecedented pledge for a conservative Republican when speaking at CPAC on Thursday, stating that he would henceforth refuse any and all campaign contribution pledges from Political Action Committees for the duration of his political career.
The pledge is fueled by Gaetz’s desire to free the conservative and America First movement from corporate, big business interests that seek to preserve the liberal status quo of free trade, mass immigration, and globalist foreign policy.
Gaetz slammed the corrupt special interests and PAC’s within the “Swamp of Washington, D.C,” lambasting them for the naked corruption he had witnessed members of congress engaging in since arriving in DC since 2017.
“We will not be able to defend crony or corrupt capitalism. That’s not the America we’ve been fighting for within the America First movement.”
Gaetz slammed the political establishment for “importing cheap labor to fuel big business here at home,” calling for a conservative movement that aimed for more than “prostituting itself to globalist multinationalist corporations.”

He called for a conservative movement that recognizes the danger of oligarchy as a threat to be just as dangerous as that of socialism.
“We reject the model of Venezuela, as we reject the model of Davos.”
Gaetz’s pledge reflects an increasing tenor within the conservative movement calling for a divorce between the Republican Party and big business interests that have long freely bought interest and policy within it.
“Our home is not for sale to any special interest, ever!”
