NOQ Report hits Google News Now we need your support

When we first set out to build a conservative blog that embraced limited government without direct party affiliation with the Republicans, we started with a news aggregator, The New Americana. It grew nicely, but we knew we needed to expand to a site that housed original content from patriotic Americans who shared our vision of a conservative, federalist form of government. NOQ Report was born.

Yesterday, we were blessed by the unexpected benefit of gaining inclusion in Google News. With so many liberal mainstream media sites dominating the high-volume pages of one of the nation’s most prominent news aggregators, we weren’t very hopeful about our chances. Thankfully, we met Google’s strict criteria and are now available in their news section.

For months, we’ve been operating both sites at a loss. As traffic and exposure pick up, it’s time we expand. We need to start paying our editor (who has been volunteering for the last month), our current writers, and hopefully new talent coming in. We are asking people to support us through our GoFundMe page. By increasing our output, we’ll be able to become more available on Google News. Every story we get to move up helps to push leftist propaganda sites down.

We make these pushes periodically and it helps, but we really need to generate enough to make a real impact. As you can see from the sites, we keep advertisements at the bare minimum. It doesn’t even pay for web hosting, but we’ve chosen to go down this road instead of the spammy, obtrusive style that so many conservative sites have chosen to pursue. No popups, popunders, or semi-pornographic ads here. We simply refuse to tarnish the site and thereby harm the conservative and federalist movements.

As some of you know, the vast majority of my time is spent building the Federalist Party. That’s why I only post here occasionally. Steve and the team need as much help as they can get.

A couple of months ago we asked for help and many of you stepped up. We’re asking again. The incessant push to the left by government and through culture require strong, patriotic voices to be amplified. Please consider helping us keep the fire of American exceptionalism burning in as many hearts and minds as possible.

Media isn’t reporting ‘bad economy’ – they’re hoping for it

Media isnt reporting on bad economy - theyre hoping for it

The direct narrative legacy media is painting regarding President Trump is blatant and unambiguous. They want you to not only believe he is a racist, but most Republican lawmakers are also racist and anyone supporting them must be a racist as well. That’s their front-facing message as they attempt to push the 2020 election to the Democrats. But there are many associated narratives they’re also trying to drive, and none of them is more despicable than what they’re trying to do to the economy.

As we noted before, perceptions are the most power tool in helping or hurting the economy. When people believe things are good, they buy more and help to make it good. That’s an oversimplification of the complex nature of market and economic trends, but it holds true.

From now until the 2020 election, conservatives can expect an onslaught of negative news reports about the economy. Some will point to signs the economy is about to collapse. Eventually, they’ll shift gears to demonstrate how the economy is in the process of collapsing. Then, they’ll describe ways in which the economy has already collapsed. The more people they can make believe it’s true, the more likely it is that it will become a reality.

My colleague characterized it as a self-fulfilling prophecy, and that’s not inaccurate, but I think the better way to understand it is to realize in the post-truth society radical progressives want to build, they need the economy to collapse. They need capitalism to collapse. This isn’t so much an attempt to create a self-fulfilling prophecy as it is a stepping stone to the end goal of Modern Monetary Theory. That, more than anything else they’re proposing, is the most dangerous because it enables everything else.

But we’re not quite there yet, and MMT deserves a much longer analysis. For now, let’s take a look at a sampling of the narrative progressive legacy media is driving right now. Here’s a snapshot of the Google News “top stories” regarding the economy:

Media Trump Economy

Keep in mind, this isn’t a search for “Trump economy” or “coming economic collapse” or any doom-and-gloom keywords. This is the “full coverage” of our current economic situation, delivered in proper propaganda format by Google News.

The reality is the economy is still humming. Jobs are not hard to find, driving up wages and reducing unemployment. The stock market is strong. The dollar is strong, and while this may be hurting in the trade war with China, it’s giving Americans unprecedented purchasing power.

Getting word of reality out to the masses is the challenge with such an onslaught negative press against the economy. This is one of the reasons it is so important that crowdfunded conservative news outlets like NOQ Report receive as many donations from patriots as possible. Doing so is essentially like giving directly to the Trump reelection campaign because he needs truths like these promoted to voters. People are more inclined to believe what others are saying about issues than politicians, which is why we strongly encourage giving generously to NOQ Report.

The more the left builds the narrative that the economy is bad, the more likely it is the economy will have a downturn before the election. They’re lying now in hopes their lies become reality. We must adhere to the truth that the economy is strong.

The false narratives behind Portland’s Antifa versus Proud Boys

The false narratives behind Portlands Antifa versus Proud Boys

Depending on which news outlets you use, there are two primary narratives that are being pushed. Narrative one is, “Far-right group and Antifa clash in Portland.” Narrative two is, “Antifa gets violent. Again.”

The first narrative is what you’ll get from progressive legacy media outlets as they offer cover for the violence being perpetrated almost exclusively by Antifa as they clash with the Proud Boys. The latter is being classified as a “far-right” group, but they’re actually more of an “alt-right” group that does not believe in true conservative principles. Nevertheless, anything “right” is painted by the media as part of the conservative movement, the GOP, and President Trump’s base. This is important to understand because in the narrative the left is painting, their goal is to make the Proud Boys appear to be white supremacist and therefore attached to President Trump because according to their latest agenda, they have to portray him as a racist at every turn.

The second narrative is the reality, and you won’t find it reported this way by many news outlets, even on the right. There’s a disassociation some publications are actively engaged in where they believe reporting that seems to favor the Proud Boys makes the news outlet seem like it’s supporting white supremacy. This is the progressive propaganda machine at work; even conservative journalists are hesitant to lose credibility over perceptions.

Quillette journalist Angy Ngo is reporting live on Twitter. We’ll try to update it as he adds more:

As you can see from Ngo’s reporting, the violence seems to be undertaken exclusively by Antifa. But legacy media will only report it as clashes “between” the two groups and not as violence instigated solely by the side that holds the left’s progressive mantle. All of this is secondary to the overarching narrative they’re driving, that the Proud Boys represent the right and their white supremacy beliefs are defended by the President.

On cue, the President chimed in:

The left pounced, as they’re wont to do, by saying this is evidence the President is sympathetic to the Proud Boys because he singled out Antifa in a “mutual” conflict. What they won’t tell you is Antifa is starting the fights. They’re bringing the weapons. They’re pepper-spraying people. They’re attacking buses. One does not have to believe in the Proud Boys’ rhetoric to realize Antifa is instigating violence here.

As Beth Baumann reported, even journalists are being targeted:

So Much For Being ‘Peaceful’: Antifa Attacks Reporters And Conservatives In Portland (Again)

Not quite seven weeks ago, conservative journalist Andy Ngo was attacked while covering an Antifa protest in Portland, Oregon. Mayor Tom Wheeler ordered police to stand down at the time and received backlash for doing so. The city prepared for the Proud Boys to hold a rally on Saturday, with Antifa showing up to counter protest. Wheeler made it clear that Portland is taking a “zero tolerance” policy during Saturday’s activities.

Despite the warning, Antifa, once again, became violent.

At one point, Antifa protestors had The Washington Examiner‘s Julio Rosas surrounded. They wanted him to report on what was taking place from the other side of the street because he “wasn’t with” them.

Rosas attempted to explain that he was simply reporting on the events for his job but Antifa didn’t care. They thought he was “spying” on them.

The irony in all of this has become a recurring theme between Antifa and their supporters in progressive media and the Democratic Party. They claim Antifa is simply “anti-fascist” while ignoring the fact that they’re the ones using fascism to promote their ideas and to quash opposing ideas. Reports on the ground in Portland demonstrate this clearly.

Here are Rosas’s Twitter reports:

The left’s narratives: (1) Proud Boys and Antifa are equally to blame, (2) Proud Boys are white supremacists while Antifa are anti-fascists, and (3) President Trump support white supremacists. Don’t believe the lies.

With ‘collusion’ out and ‘racism’ in, legacy media scrambles to write the anti-Trump narrative

With collusion out and racism in legacy media scrambles to write the anti-Trump narrative

There are things that are often so obvious to me, I actually ignore them as stories to consider reporting when in reality they’re big news. It’s part of the myopia journalists often get when their days are spent researching and analyzing a topic so much, we assume certain things are common knowledge when they’re not. Case-in-point: The fact that legacy media establishes narrative plans to achieve goals that promote their agenda.

It took my wife’s aghast response to learning the NY Times was setting up a gameplan to attack President Trump from now until the election. I asked her what she thought newsroom’s did. After all, she knows I used to sit in meetings about how to cover particular topics, and affecting the 2020 election is obviously something newsrooms will try to do. But to her (and probably a lot of our readers), it’s assumed journalists aren’t crafting stories based on a playbook but are simply taking each individual piece of news and spinning it as they see fit.

Nope. That’s not how it works. We’ve seen comical examples of media coordination to push very specific narratives that often match the talking points of Democrats. This isn’t new. It’s as old as journalism itself. Propaganda isn’t a rare occurrence. It’s an ongoing battle to appear to be unbiased while conveying bias subtly. But today, there’s no longer subtly involved. Both progressive and conservative news outlets unabashedly spin stories to suit their agendas.

The latest example came from a leak of a NY Times staff meeting transcript that detailed how the Russian collusion narrative was a dud and they needed to go after the new Trump narrative, that he’s a racist. I saw the story yesterday and myopically assumed, “Duh, it’s obvious. This is a nothingburger.” But as my wife pointed out, there are plenty of people who don’t realize this is how newsrooms in every major outlet operate.

Leaked Transcript Of NYT Staff Meeting Reveals Leadership’s Plan For Reporting On Trump For Next Two Years

As revealed in the leaked transcript, Baquet began the meeting by referencing the paper’s “significant missteps” and then explaining how these “missteps” stem from “something larger”: the paper’s approach to reporting on Trump. “This is a really hard story, newsrooms haven’t confronted one like this since the 1960s,” said Baquet. “It got trickier after [inaudible] … [it] went from being a story about whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia and obstruction of justice to being a more head-on story about the president’s character.”

Baquet then admits that the Times had “built our newsroom” around covering the ultimately debunked narrative that Trump “colluded” with Russia. “We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well,” said Baquet in comments highlighted by the Washington Examiner‘s Byron York. “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story.”

As early as it may seem in the election cycle, this is actually crunch-time for journalists with an agenda, which is essentially all of us. The narratives take time to stick, and so if progressive media is going to get enough Americans to believe their racism narrative, they need to be hammering it today and all the way through until the election.

Their plan has three steps:

  1. Paint Trump as a racist
  2. Paint the whole GOP as either racists or enabling racists
  3. Make voters believe that if they vote for Trump and/or Republicans, they’re racists as well

If that sounds familiar, it’s because you’re paying attention as the narrative unfolds before our eyes. They realize the President hasn’t said or done anything that’s racist. They can attach the race card to certain comments he makes, but even then it’s a stretch. But they need to hold this as their message because his policies tell a completely different story. Black and Hispanic-American unemployment numbers are at all-time lows while prosperity is spreading to minorities faster than ever in our history, including (especially) under President Obama.

The left will try to divide us and then claim President Trump is the great divider. They want to draw distinct lines between those who support him and those who may be willing to oppose him. Then, they’ll do everything in their power to pull people on the fence over to their side. What they can’t understand is why things are working, why the economy is humming, and why violence seems to be coming more from the left than the right. That’s not what they expected to happen. Many assumed his presidency would be so bad so quickly, he’d never be allowed to finish his first term. But as it becomes increasingly likely he’ll get a second term, they’re scrambling to derail him.

The progressive narratives in legacy media are 100% intended to subvert the 2020 election and remove President Trump from power. The best thing conservatives can do is continue to point out their complete journalistic hypocrisy.
