How a left wing rag allowed me to join the NOQ Report team

Published

on

The year 2017 proved to be a good year for me.  I was finally able to get work after years of job hunting.  While NOQ Report itself is right now voluntary, the job that actually pays me coupled with what I am doing with NOQ Report are steps in the right direction which I hope will lead me to a payoff.  Not just for me but for this emerging publication.  One thing that helped me get on the NOQ Report was a few of my recent letters to my hometown alternative newspaper which is been around since 1993.

This link below was my latest letter to the Colorado Springs Independent, in which I pointed out how we had a Bill of Rights and Australia did not.  You see, another one those enlightened atheists (he pointed to Australia’s gun laws) that we have to fight against for the sake of our liberties and freedom (not all atheists are progressive radicals.  Those who speak the loudest usually are) was trying to put the National Rifle Association (and gun owners in general) in its place and just tell us to give up the guns.  I quickly responded and the CSIndy felt my response was worthy of being published.  Keep in mind however that I wrote and sent the letter prior to the shootings in Sutherland Springs, Texas.  Even if that did not happen, I will still point out our Bill of Rights and that those respected rights are “God Given.”  For if “the man” gave rights, he can also take them away when he feels like it.  Yes, that includes the likes of Hillary Clinton too, should she or someone like her get power.  By the way, the government will never EVER give up their guns.  If only the government has guns, and the mental cases are in power….WATCH OUT!!!  There will be blood, as there was before, and it will be your government that will be spilling it.

Reader: Progressives want to steal America as we know it | Letters | Colorado Springs Independent

https://www.csindy.com/coloradosprings/letters/Content?category=1064345They can’t own guns because The State (in this case being Australia) passed a law saying so. Australia does not have a Bill of Rights like America does, and thus their government can give rights and take them away as they see fit. With a Bill of Rights protecting the armed citizen, gun confiscation would be an act of civil war in America.

The progressives here in the United States will for sure make an attempt to try similar gun-grabbing laws, but as historian Varad Mehta pointed out in a piece that he wrote for The Federalist in 2015, an attempt at Australian gun laws would not just be an attack on the Second Amendment but the Fifth and Sixth Amendments as well. With a Bill of Rights protecting the armed citizen, gun confiscation would be an act of civil war in America.

So again, thank you CSIndy.  You were a big help.  Now I shall continue to speak up and speak out against what you and your readers support.

P.S.  Please read this piece from JD Rucker.  It will show you how you can help get NOQ Report into the black and truly become part of the emerging conservative news sites that are currently out there.  I am grateful for sites like Conservative Review, The Stream (which was founded by pastor and televangelist James Robinson), The Daily Wire (founded by Ben Shapiro who’s syndicated commentaries were first published when he was in his teens), Truth Revolt (which Ben Shapiro co-founded prior to The Daily Wire), and The Daily Caller (co-founded by Tucker Carlson) just to name a few.  These sites listed have only been around less than ten years, and many of them truly give the conservative an honest voice and not just those who are waterboys/girls for the Republican party unlike many older conservative publications so called.  Google now recognizes NOQ Report as a legit news and commentary web publication.  Now its time to take the next step.  Let us make sure that NOQ Report holds its own weight as we compete with and complement others in the fight for liberty.

Saudi foreign minister does damage control on American press

Saudi foreign minister does damage control on American press

The foreign relations mess stemming from Jamal Khashoggi’s murder continues to grow more chaotic despite Saudi Arabia’s attempt to cover it up with regularly changing stories. The latest attempt at damage control comes from Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir.

Fox News’ Bret Baier him, pressing multiple times about Mohammad bin Salman’s role in or knowledge of the operation that led to Khashoggi’s murder. The blame is being placed on the individuals who carried out the operation; as much space is being created between the direct actors and Saudi leadership as possible.

One important note in the interview was when al-Jubier said they do not believe the entire 15-man “kill team” was at the consulate where when Khashoggi was killed there. He admitted he did not know whether Turkey really had a recording of what happened during the incident, nor whether the United States had intelligence that contradicted the Kingdom’s story.

The responses from the foreign minister were in stark contrast to the indignation exuding from the Kingdom for two weeks following the initial report of Khashoggi’s disappearance.

My Take

As I wrote last week, Saudi Arabia gravely underestimated the international response to this incident. They thought they could get rid of a dissident as they have done in the past and the response would be muted. They didn’t take into account his American ties and the desire of the Turks to expose them at every turn.

How is this going to end? It won’t, at least not for a while. Unlike other international news stories of similar magnitude, this one has multiple forces bent on keeping the story going until a satisfactory resolution is reached. It won’t be reached. The White House and the Kingdom will do whatever they can to sweep this under the rug and make people forget.

This stinks, but here’s the sad reality: “Justice” will not be delivered the way it should and the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States will return to the status quo in a few months.

First charge filed against Russian for interfering with elections

First charge filed against Russian for interfering with elections

Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova is allegedly part of Project Lakhta, a Russian operation intended to sow political division ahead of the midterm elections as well as other elections around the world. She has been charged by the Justice Department for interfering with the United States political system.

Here is the press release from the DOJ:

Russian National Charged with Interfering in U.S. Political System

https://www.justice.gov/usao-edva/pr/russian-national-charged-interfering-us-political-system“The strategic goal of this alleged conspiracy, which continues to this day, is to sow discord in the U.S. political system and to undermine faith in our democratic institutions,” said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “This case demonstrates that federal law enforcement authorities will work aggressively to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of unlawful foreign influence activities whenever feasible, and that we will not stand by idly while foreign actors obstruct the lawful functions of our government. I want to thank the agents and prosecutors for their determined work on this case.”

According to allegations in the criminal complaint, Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova, 44, of St. Petersburg, Russia, served as the chief accountant of “Project Lakhta,” a Russian umbrella effort funded by Russian oligarch Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin and two companies he controls, Concord Management and Consulting LLC, and Concord Catering. Project Lakhta includes multiple components, some involving domestic audiences within the Russian Federation and others targeting foreign audiences in the United States, members of the European Union, and Ukraine, among others.

My Take

This story will be spun from its surface assertion of Russian interference helping President Trump and other Republicans win in 2016. That assertion is inaccurate as the DOJ release indicates, but it won’t stop mainstream and leftist media from calling this the smoking gun against Trump’s presidency.

What this project allegedly did was push forth divisive messaging that was intended to affect people on both sides of the political aisle. This is important to understand because it wasn’t intended to drive one candidate or another. It was designed to take whatever political position any given person has and amplify their anger towards the opposing side.

Russia knows if they push the far right further to the right and the far left further to the left, our own anger will fuel the division. They are taken advantage of our freedom.

Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards charged for leaking financial data on Robert Muellers targets

Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards faces up to 10 years in prison if found guilty of leaking financial documents to BuzzFeed. These documents contained information about some of Robert Mueller’s targets in his probe of Russian election meddling, including Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Maria Butina, and the Russian Embassy.

Natalie Edwards: Treasury FinCEN official charged with leaking financial records in Russia probe

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/natalie-edwards-treasury-fincen-employee-charged-with-leaking-financial-records-in-russia-probe/U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement that Edwards “betrayed her position of trust by repeatedly disclosing highly sensitive information.”

“SARs, which are filed confidentially by banks and other financial institutions to alert law enforcement to potentially illegal transactions, are not public documents, and it is an independent federal crime to disclose them outside of one’s official duties,” Berman said.

My Take

There has never been a presidency that had so many government employees attempting to derail it. For a senior Treasury Department employee to be willing to go to jail to help a leftist media outlet post some stories exemplifies how unhinged President Trump’s opponents can be.

Trust of public employees is extremely important and, anecdotally, at an all-time low. It isn’t just people in the White House. There are clearly an large number of unhinged activists working for the federal government.
