Jacob Airey is an author, film reviewer and pop culture critic who recently released his second fantasy novel called The Seven Royals: All Good Things. He joins Freedom One-On-One with Jeff Dornik to discuss his book, Hollywood and what Conservatives can do to use culture and creativity to further our message.
As Conservatives, we’ve been fighting an uphill battle. If we are going to be honest about it, we are forced to because our movement has taken ourselves out of the battlefield over the years. Now that we want to be included again, the Left is doing everything they can to ensure that this does not happen.
Throughout the history of the world, Christians and those with more conservative leadings have been at the forefront of the arts, both music and storytelling. Over the past century, however, that has slowly declined until the last few decades where Christians have completely left the entertainment industry altogether, citing its evil influences as the reasoning.
This has created a vacuum for the sinister globalists to control every venue of influence within our culture. They’ve used this to push their propaganda and change the minds and worldview of millions upon millions of impressionable young minds. Now, we are facing a new America that has been brainwashed since infancy through entertainment that has now rejected God and His morality.
Luckily, some Conservatives and Christians have been waking up to the fact that we have been losing our culture because of our lack of influence within it. Unfortunately for us, the elites that have grabbed hold of Hollywood and the entertainment industry as a whole are not wanting to give us back any level of influence, which has led to an extreme Cancel Culture.
So if we are not being allowed to re-enter Hollywood, how can we reclaim culture? Do we continue to bang our heads against the wall trying to infiltrate the system currently in place… or do we completely bypass it altogether?
Jacob Airey, the author of the new book The Seven Royals: All Good Things, and former writer for The Daily Wire, explained his position that Conservatives should bypass the system altogether and go straight to the target audience of Conservative Americans. There’s no sense in trying to be a part of system that is rigged against you when you can simply work around them… especially in light of today’s technology and distribution models.
We must engage in the battle where the war is being waged. The means we must get back into the arts. Get creative. Use your talents to influence culture through film, art or music.
During this episode of Freedom One-On-One, Jacob Airey and Jeff Dornik discuss a wide variety of topics pertaining to the entertainment industry and how Conservatives can begin to use this medium to change minds towards conservative and Christian values.

Big Tech censorship has been expanding beyond just Conservatives… Christians are next!
While many of us have been warning about the coming persecution of Christians, I don’t think any of us thought that it would be ramping up so quickly. While we are luckily not facing physical persecution yet, such as beatings or death, we are facing censorship, deplatforming and even jail time in some instances. These are just the birth pangs of what is coming next.
While we still have a voice here at The GateKeepers, we are doing everything that we can to bypass the algorithmic walls put up by Big Tech and the Social Media companies like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Our videos used to get thousands of views across all of our platforms, while now they are being throttled and hardly getting distributed at all. An added wrinkle is that, while our video content is seeing lower views, traffic to our website has never been higher. Over the past year we’ve seen a 700% increase in traffic, and it’s been amazing to experience this kind of growth. Because of this, we’ll be launching GKTV very soon, hosting all of our shows exclusively on our platform.
While The GateKeepers started out as nothing more than a blog for me to post my articles, it has now expanded into a podcast network featuring fifteen shows, a publishing company that has published three books over the past year and we are now hosting conferences on a regular basis. We’ve seen the addition of contributors to The GateKeepers such as Denise McAllister, Pastor Cary Gordon, Pastor Ken Peters, Dr Mike Spaulding, Dr Bobby Lopez and many other amazing Christian leaders. Our lineup of shows has expanded, as well, featuring shows such as The Shining Light Podcast, Conversations with Jeff, The Big Brown Gadfly, Battlefront: SouthGate and The Verum Monitae Report with Dr Mike Spaulding, in addition the the several other shows we also carry on The GateKeepers.
While we’ve seen some amazing growth and expansion, we are also working hard to make this be a long-term play, and with that comes with how to fund our work here. I’ve intentionally not turned The GateKeepers into a non-profit organization because I don’t want to become beholden to the government, and I also don’t want to be focused on sending out fundraising letters constantly begging for money like most non-profit ministries do.
Instead, we have our online book store, are hosting online conferences and have our Plugged In membership program. Right now we are funded exclusively through these three different avenues. We are especially excited about our Plugged In membership, as this brings so much added value to you as a thank you for supporting our work here at The GateKeepers.
Becoming a Plugged In member provides access to the weekly episode of The GateKeepers Podcast, the monthly episode of Connected, free access to all of our online conferences, the recordings from previous online conferences and 30% off in The GK Store. If you would like to support us by becoming a Plugged In member, click here.
However, we’ve also been getting a lot of requests from supporters asking how they can donate to help support The GateKeepers. We are extremely grateful for these requests, as this will help us to expand even further and provide more quality Biblical content. If you would like to help support to The GateKeepers, you can donate through PayPal here.
