Ohio congressional race decided by less than 2000 votes

Republicans narrowly avoided an embarrassing defeat ahead of midterm elections as Troy Balderson beat his Democratic opponent, Danny O’Connor, by less than 2,000 votes.

The district has been an easy checkmark for Republicans for decades, but the anticipated “blue wave” that could turn the tide for the Democrats in November couldn’t quite pull off the upset in Franklin County, Ohio.

“I’m humbled by the support I’ve received from voters and look forward to representing Ohio’s 12th Congressional district in Congress,” Balderson said in a statement. “Danny O’Connor ran a hard-fought race but I look forward to earning the support of voters for a fourth time.”

The campaign isn’t over for either candidate as both are competing for the two-year term in the general election. These results only hold until the the term of retired Pat Tiberi ends in January.

To advance conservatism, nobody gets a free pass

To advance conservatism nobody gets a free pass

Before the midterm elections, most of the writers here spent a good chunk of their copy space helping Republicans in their campaigns. They focused on exposing Democrats for what they are (as well as what they’re becoming) and often turned their back on the negatives associated with Republican candidates.

This was intentional and I allowed it. Like many proponents of limited government, I compare the rhetoric and actions of the two major parties and I see one that’s pushing for big government and another that’s pushing for even bigger government. The fallacies in the Democrats’ proposals are obvious and universal. Republicans have a mix of good and bad; for example, lowering taxes was good, but simultaneously increasing spending was bad.

I allowed the pro-Republican approach because in the world of partisan politics, we’re stuck in a lesser-of-two-evils scenario. While I personally didn’t get involved in party politics and focused my posts on fighting for conservative and limited-government federalist values, I didn’t ask my writers to do the same. Any who chose to promote the Republican agenda, which was most of them, were allowed to do so.

They still can. I’m not censoring anyone. However, I want to be clear about the true purpose of this news site.

We are not a partisan site that is pro-Republican or anti-Democrat. We are a pro-American site that understands the importance of limiting government, defending freedoms, and protecting life, plus many other ideas that are usually associated with conservatism and/or classical liberalism.

Now that the election is over, we are relaunching our GoFundMe page.

Getting donations during campaign season was tough, but now we’re ready to accept help. We need it.

The description of our site on GoFundMe encapsulates what we are.

Our society is rapidly deteriorating into helplessness. Ideas such as self-governance, conservatism, patriotism, personal responsibility, limited-government federalism, and civil discourse are being threatened by a sharp leftward lurch. It isn’t just progressives who are veering to the left. The center is shifting to the left and as a result, many who are or were conservative have become more open-minded to the cultural and geopolitical shifts.

We are losing our ethical, traditional, and logical cores as a society.

NOQ Report has three goals:

1) Expose the fallacies of this leftward lurch that is making progressives more unhinged and conservatives more malleable.
2) Educate the masses about the benefits of liberty-driven philosophies that include limiting government, defending freedoms, and protecting life.
3) Engage with people in a meaningful way. We want a dialogue with everyone whether they agree or disagree with us.

America deserves better than what mainstream media feeds us.

Every dollar donated is invested back into the site to pay writers, editors, and to promote the site so it can reach more people. We have limited advertising on the site for a reason. We do not want “corporate overlords” who try to steer content, nor do we want to load the site with spammy ads. This is why we must rely on you, the readers, to keep the site afloat.

As of the middle of November, 2018, we are relaunching this campaign. We had a soft launch that had minimal success. We are pushing harder now. Please help us elevate this news site to compete against the incessant leftist propaganda being pumped onto the internet. Donate now.

Moving forward, we are going to focus on our three goals. It doesn’t matter if someone is a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, or whatever. If they aren’t helping to limit government, defend freedoms, and protect life, we’ll call them out.

Michael Avenatti arrested for domestic violence

Michael Avenatti arrested for domestic violence

Just when we were getting used to laughing at lawyer Michael Avenatti’s antics, he has to go off and do something that isn’t funny. If allegations of felony domestic violence turn out to be true, his quest to be the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee may fail before it gets going.

Not that anyone was taking it seriously.

Now, the lawyer for Stormy Daniels Julie Swetnick is behind bars.

Stormy Daniels’ Attorney Michael Avenatti Arrested for Felony Domestic Violence

www.tmz.com/2018/11/14/michael-avenatti-arrested-domestic-violence-stormy-daniels-attorney/Our law enforcement sources say Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after a woman filed a felony DV report. We’re told her face was “swollen and bruised” with “red marks” on both cheeks.

Our sources say the alleged incident occurred Tuesday night, but there was another confrontation Wednesday between the two at an exclusive apartment building in the Century City area of L.A.

My Take

What’s left to say?

Hopefully, this will end the Michael Avenatti distraction. He’s extended his 15 minutes of fame for for too long.

Jack Reacher reboot: Smaller screen, bigger actor

Jack Reacher reboot Smaller screen bigger actor

Tom Cruise is one of the biggest actors in the world when it comes to popularity and recognition. He’s also one of the shortest leading men in Hollywood, stretching to hit 5’7″.

His two-movie portrayal of Jack Reacher was enjoyed by many fans, including the book series’ writer, but there was something missing – about 10 inches. In the books, Reacher was described as 6’5″ with hands the size of dinner plates.

There will be no more Jack Reacher movies. There will be a new actor to play the role. The next version of the drifting former major in the military police will come to us through the small screen, almost certainly as a streaming show on Netflix or Amazon.

“Cruise, for all his talent, didn’t have that physicality,” series creator Lee Child told BBC.

So, who could replace Cruise?

The next Jack Reacher

We know Reacher’s character is tall intimidating. He is physically fit and can handle himself well in most fights.

Age isn’t much of a factor. He left the military at age 36, so they have a lot of flexibility depending on which stage they want the story to be picked up.

He’s American, Caucasian, and generally jovial except when he’s kicking butt. He’s blond in the books, but that’s malleable.

So, here’s a list of people who fit the bill. Some of them are hard to imagine playing a television role, but it’s 2018. That’s much more common in the streaming age. A-list actors don’t consider television a downgrade the way they used to.

In order from my favorite to least favorite choice for the role…

  1. Vince Vaughn
  2. Adam Baldwin
  3. Liam Hemsworth
  4. Joe Manganiello
  5. Billy Campbell
  6. Armie Hammer
  7. John Corbett
  8. Ben Affleck

Anyone who balks at Vince Vaughn playing the tough guy as Jack Reacher hasn’t seen Brawl In Cell Block 99.
