With a bipartisan bill ironically named the Taxpayer First Act, Congress will prevent the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from ever making tax software capable of assisting or automatically filing taxes for Americans.

The instant reaction by most Americans would be to ask why the government hates us so much they’d outlaw something that would actually help us. But when we look at things through a conservative lens, it becomes clear this is a blessing in disguise.
Don’t get me wrong. Capitol Hill is not pushing the bill for the same reasons I like it. This is yet another special interests play in which the tax-preparation industry is flexing its muscle to codify an unofficial agreement that’s been in place for a long time. The agreement is this: The private firms would continue to offer free tax preparation and filing to those making under $66,000 as long as the IRS doesn’t cut into their business.
I’m happy about this because of Obamacare. No, I’m not talking about the healthcare plan itself. I’m referring to the Obamacare website, which cost taxpayers $2.1 BILLION. I always like to make sure people understand we’re talking about billions of dollars when referring to the Obamacare website. It’s a perfect example of government having a poor plan that was poorly executed, resulting in something that never worked properly while going way overboard on expenses.
That was healthcare. Navigating the various city, county, state, and federal tax laws on behalf of people is much more complicated. One could easily imagine the IRS working with something as complex as automated software for accurate tax assignments easily making the Obamacare website debacle look like a glowing success.
The government already has too much control over our finances with the existence of the IRS itself. I’d much prefer going through the pain of having someone file my taxes rather than trusting the government to do it for me.
“If Democrats and Republicans can agree on anything these days, it’s that the tax-filing process should be cheaper and easier for the American people — and also, that the IRS should be legally prohibited from making the tax-filing process cheaper and easier for the American people.” – Eric Levitz
Taxes are already as obtuse as they can be. While many would love for the IRS to take even more control of our finances by automating the process, the reality is this: They can’t do things better than the private sector. Ever.

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.
- 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,
