Most of the Democratic candidate buzz this week has surrounded former Vice President Joe Biden’s rise following the official announcement of his candidacy. Some has fallen on Senator Bernie Sanders as the supposed biggest contender to keep Biden and the Democratic Establishment from controlling the nomination again. Meanwhile, the steady hum of “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg keeps getting louder and louder.
The young white guy might just retire the two old white guys.
He’s had a couple of recent controversies. First, he was falsely accused of sexual assault in a stunt allegedly orchestrated by morons. Then, he had the gall to invoke federalism on the vaccination debate. But that hasn’t stopped him from rising to tie Sanders in New Hampshire, a state far from Buttigieg’s Indiana but right next door to Sanders’s Vermont. Awkward.
Now, he’s getting some more national attention, but this time he isn’t alone. His husband, Chasten Glezman, joined him for the cover shoot for the upcoming Time Magazine. The headline and subheading are:
“First Family — The unlikely, untested and unprecedented campaign of Mayor Pete Buttigieg.”
It’s catchy enough to draw the attention of those on the left who haven’t heard of him and those on the right who do not fear him. Republicans and Independents who support President Trump should not dismiss the mayor of a mid-sized mid-western city. It’s a long time until the first votes are cast, but that doesn’t mean the right shouldn’t be paying attention right now.
Of all the candidates with the possible exception of Andrew Yang, Buttigieg seems to be the hardest for Trump to attack. Whoever the nominee is, Trump will need to be able to attack them. His campaign style isn’t conducive to playing nice.
But that’s not the biggest reason Republicans should be concerned. On paper, Buttigieg has some very strong credentials that match well against Trump. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard before going off as a Rhodes Scholar. He speaks several languages. He’s a former intelligence officer and Afghanistan War veteran. He speaks well and is generally likable. None of these traits lend themselves to the type of campaign President Trump wants to run.
While many are saying the Time Magazine cover will help give Buttigieg a boost, it may actually be the other way around. They like picking winners as early as possible and have built an impressive resume of knowing who has a chance of being President well before others.
Time Magazine has been wrong about candidates they put on their covers in the past. Then again, they put Barack Obama on the cover saying he could be the next President… over two years before the 2008 election.
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,
