Let’s put tribalism and sycophancy aside for a moment shall we? Let’s talk about the GOP tax plan:
It’s complete crap.
When you start with the premise that you have to “pay for” tax cuts it is clear you have no idea what real tax reform is about. When you fund Planned Parenthood but look at removing the adoption tax credit you can’t claim to be the “pro-life” party. When you’ve got a tax deduction for the maintenance of private jets (added by a Democrat it’s worth noting) you can’t claim this is a “middle-class tax cut.”
The bottom line is that spending is out of control. Part of the reason is everyone has their sacred cows. For Republicans it’s agriculture subsidies and defense spending. For Democrats it’s everything EXCEPT defense spending.
Even defense spending has to be looked at carefully (my article on Monday I’ll detail some of my experiences with this). Everything should be on the table and the size and scope of the federal government needs to be dramatically reduced. The GOP has made it clear since President Trump came to power that they are no more interested in cutting spending than the Democrats are, except when there’s a Democratic President.
The GOP tax bill is an abomination. It’s a pale shadow of the massive campaign promises that routinely go by the wayside after an election. At this point, with their utter failure to secure our border and deliver on the promise of repealing the debacle that is Obamacare, the Republicans in Congress seem determined to get SOMETHING done on tax reform, lest they anger those they work for to the point where they are unable to secure reelection.
Now, when I say “those they work for” I don’t mean “we the people.” I mean their rich campaign donors like the Mercers and the Kochs and a hundred others. The lack of any REAL reform in the tax code is evidence of this.
At the same time, the Democrats don’t appear to be interested in the least in reforming a massive tax code that give breaks only to those that can afford the best attorneys and CPAs. No surprise there. The Democrats want as complicated a tax code as possible, because with volumes of tax code comes more control over the tax payer, which is what they really want.
Even though the tax bills the GOP has proposed would do little to nothing to break the big government hold on the people, the Democrats must oppose it for purely political reasons. As much as the GOP wants “a win” the Democrats equally want them not have a major legislative achievement in this Congress.
As per usual, the Democratic Party has appealed to the lowest common denominator with this ad featuring Elizabeth Warren:

The GOP might find themselves with overwhelming popular support that even the opposition party couldn’t stand against if they would simply find their backbone and create REAL tax reform. So we are clear, to me real tax reform looks like one of the following:
1) A 10% flat tax on every working person in America, whether they be a citizen or resident alien. A 15% flat business tax. (Thanks to my friend Jeff Clark for this thought process)
2) The “Fair Tax” which is basically a sales tax on everything. Even illegal income would be taxed this way.
3) The so-called “Nuetral Tax.” I’ll detail this one later in another article, but basically each state decides how best to raise federal revenue.
What I know for certain is this: No tax plan is truly reform until it breaks the power the IRS has over the average citizen. As of 2015 the Internal Revenue Service had nearly 80,000 employees, which is 30,000 more than the FBI, DEA, and ATF combined. The budget for the IRS in 2015 was $11.2 Billion. Ironically, the institution charged with collecting money from the citizenry is also one of the most wasteful and extraneous budget expenditures in the federal government.
An alternate tax like the ones listed above would allow us to cut the IRS to a fraction of its size, and remove all power it has to bully the hard-working taxpayers that make this country happen
Of course, this is a pipe team as things now stand. Neither the Republicans nor Democrats this level of tyranny to be removed from the federal government since it takes away much of their power. Both sides are simply trying to maintain or grow their power.
When the average citizen has finally had enough, and come to realize that perhaps it is long past time to continue thinking in binary terms, then we can have real change. Until then we will continue to be slaves a political aristocracy that the Constitution supposedly abolished.
Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.

- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
