When conservative pundit Erick Erickson declared he would never vote for then-candidate Trump in 2016, he used a hashtag that has survived until today. #NeverTrump became the rallying hashtag for many conservatives who felt Trump was too flawed as a businessman, leader, and person to be President of the United States.
Today, Erickson announced he would be backing President Trump for his reelection bid.
This isn’t too surprising. It’s not that President Trump has been shockingly different from what we expected. Those of us who were #NeverTrump knew he would be childish on Twitter. We knew he would lean towards many leftist policies like tariffs, bump stock bans, red flag gun laws, and overuse of executive powers. We knew he wouldn’t be the Bible-driven leader America has needed for some time.
On the other hand, he delivered on many things we needed such as tax cuts and deregulation. He made the bold moves of renegotiating or dropping trade agreements, leaving both the Paris Climate Accords and Iran Nuclear Deal, and the one move that truly shocked me – moving our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
But it isn’t in his accomplishments that many of us find ourselves reconsidering President Trump. It’s in the unprecedented lurch to the far-left the Democratic Party has embraced. They’re sprinting as fast as they possibly can towards an ideology that would destroy America. We’ve heard the warnings before from conservatives. Bill Clinton was going to be too far to the left. Then, Barack Obama was definitely going to be too far to the left. With both of these Presidents, we saw a mild shift compared to the catastrophic shift so many predicted. I’m not saying President Obama was a moderate, but compared to where many thought he’d be, he wasn’t nearly as radically progressive as billed.
When we compare President Obama to the current batch of radical progressives in Washington DC, including the majority of those running for President, it’s clear they’ve abandoned any sense of reality Obama held to and embraced a socialistic agenda that truly will destroy America if it’s ever allowed to see the light of day.
The best thing that happened to President Trump is the untenable policy proposals we’re seeing from Democrats today. From Medicare-for-All to the Green New Deal, we’re seeing the full force of leftists unleashed. They’ve detached themselves from reality in an effort to drum up support from the masses that can’t understand the intellectual difference between a billion and a trillion.
Erickson may not have technically started the #NeverTrump movement, but he started the hashtag that drew many to that side of the aisle, the side that embraced neither major candidate. Now, he’s picked a side. Are others going to follow?
Too Few Are Telling the Truth
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), and Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCO). 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 break away. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken away 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.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
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.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we 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.
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,
