North Korea fired another ballistic missile yesterday. The two-month hiatus had put an ounce of hope on the world’s plate until last week when reports started coming in that they were on the verge of another test. Now that they’ve launched it, we’re back to where we’ve been for months: wondering what Kim Jong-un is thinking and if there’s any way to stop him.
Currently, there does not seem to be any action, not from the United States nor the United Nations. The rogue nation has been hit with everything short of a military strike. They’ve been strongly condemned. They’ve been heavily sanctioned. They’ve even been ridiculed by the President of the United States. Nothing seems to deter them.
Behind closed doors, many have been urging China to intervene. The only regional ally to North Korea has demonstrated one of two things: little influence over Kim’s regime or quiet support of his actions. They either can’t reign him in or they’re not really trying.
Russia won’t help. They’re not in his cross hairs. There’s an ever-so-slight chance they’re privately supporting them, though their actions do not seem to be beneficial to Russia’s interests. Vladimir Putin has always been one who prefers the status quo, so it’s unlikely he’d be encouraging Kim. On the other hand, it’s the United States and our allies who are being targeted by Kim, so in that regard Putin might be a closet fan.
An interesting analysis by Stan Grant at ABC Australia made some interesting points about the North Korea situation:
North Korea exists in a still-declared state of war. Survival is everything.
It has allowed its people to starve while funnelling money into its military.
It has the fourth biggest army in the world, 2 million troops. It would enlist millions more if attacked.
It has close to 10,000 artillery guns aimed at the South Korean capital, Seoul.
It already has the capacity to rain down hell, potentially killing millions.
But its nuclear muscle significantly ups the ante.
Indeed it does.
There aren’t many options for handling North Korea and the few that exist are not good. Do we strike them first militarily? For this to work, it would have to be swift and decisive. Somehow we’d need to build international support without prompting the North Koreans to attack first. Otherwise, we risk looking like the imperialistic bad guys much of the world believes we are.
Is there a cyber-solution available to take them down or delay them as Israel did with Iran using Stuxnet? No country in the world is more guarded in their IT departments than North Korea. Their people barely have the internet. Their agencies still operate mostly through paper. Getting the type of program necessary to do the damage won’t work the way it did against Iran. We’d need to have direct access to their technology. That would mean infiltration at the local level.
Do we ignore them? This may be the only viable solution for now, but as Grant noted in his article, “strategic patience” didn’t really work well for Presidents Bush or Obama. President Trump may have better success if he can open a dialogue with the North Koreans. In fact, that dialogue may already be taking place despite the blustery back-and-forth between the leaders of both nations through the press and on Twitter. It’s unlikely, particularly after the latest launch, but it can’t be dismissed entirely.
Whatever we’re going to do, it seems necessary for it to happen sooner rather than later. North Korea is stepping things up. When someone like Kim Jong-un has the ability to strike Los Angeles with barely half-an-hour warning, we should all be highly alarmed.
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 six sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- 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.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) 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,
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
