In two Tweets President Trump reveals why hell be reelected

On the surface, the prospects are very bleak for Republicans in 2020. Big tech and legacy media are unified in their battle against the President and his party, and both wield unfathomable influence over the American people. If Google, Facebook, Twitter, CNN, NY Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, and most smaller players in tech and media are against him, how could he possibly come out with a victory? It’s like David versus Goliath, his four brothers, and two dozen other slightly small giants bent on killing him.

But I’m not worried. It appears neither is President Trump. Most Republican lawmakers are worried because they live in the DC echo chamber that tells them the world is against them. This is why they’re caving on gun control, big budgets, and other issues that go against their conservative calling. One might point out, “But Trump is for big budgets and gun control as well!” Yes, he is. And he’s always been. He may be a defender of the 2nd Amendment, but he’s been consistent for decades in his support for background checks and assault weapons bans. Since becoming President, he’s added bump stock bans and red flag gun laws to his repertoire. I disagree with all of these, but I don’t blame him for being consistent. He’s a populist. He has never claimed the full-blown conservative mantle as a purist, unlike many of the Republicans who are changing their perspectives for the sake of political expediency.

Thankfully for the Republicans, their counterparts on the Democratic side have gone so far off the deep end, they aren’t in the same ballpark as being a consideration just because many Republicans are getting weak on their values. We’re working on bringing conservatism back to the Republican Party through the American Conservative Movement, but we won’t do so in a way that will get Democrats elected.  We’ll help conservatives primary RINOs. We’ll focus on making sure vulnerable true conservatives win their general elections. And, we’re going to help make sure President Trump is not replaced by one of the socialists or socialists-lite who are running for President on the Democratic side.

Like I said before, I’m not too worried about the President’s reelection chances. To understand this, just check out two of his recent Tweets:

One might wonder what Tim O’Brien, Brian Williams, or other “experts on ‘Trump'” have to do with his reelection campaign. Individually, they mean nothing. But as a group, the progressive legacy media is shooting itself in its collective feet. We saw how they were doing this yesterday when the NY Times buckled to pressure from the left over a factual headline. I framed it as a threat and it definitely is, but tonight I was given a burst of clarity and hope. I see now that leftist media has made a fatal mistake by being 24/7, 100% opposed to the President.

They have become the self-fulfilling prophecy of “fake news.” Everything President Trump said about them, they’ve become. One can argue that not all coverage of candidate Trump was negative in 2016, especially before the end of primary season. But even with most stories attacking him, there were still a significant number from legacy media sources that treated him fairly. Most of these came based on a false sense of security that he would lose. They felt compelled to salvage their credibility by dropping examples that they could point to and say, “See, we didn’t bash Trump all the time.”

In this election cycle, they’re not making the same mistake. Every Tweet, Facebook snippet, article, video, news report, editorial, column, interview, and sneeze will be completely against the President and his party going forward. They will not take any chances. They’re going all-in for the Democrats knowing their credibility has already been lost, so why even pretend to be fair or unbiased? No half-measures, they’re saying among themselves. It’s war.

One might wonder how this can give me clarity and hope. The answer is simple. Anyone who would vote for Harvey Weinstein over President Trump, a group that I’d estimate at around a third of the electorate, is not going to be made to hate Trump any more than they do. Anyone who would vote for Trump even if video came out of him with Russian prostitutes partying in Moscow, which I’d estimate at around a third of the electorate, wouldn’t be watching CNN, let alone believing anything they said.

That leaves around a third who lean left, lean right, or are truly in the middle and open to be influenced one way or the other. These are the Democrats who are truly concerned about Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, or Elizabeth Warren bringing anti-capitalistic principles and unprecedented government control into our lives. These are the Republicans who would consider Joe Biden or Steve Bullock as long as they didn’t propose things that were too radical. These are the independents who probably aren’t even paying much attention at this early stage in the race.

What will these all-important voters see from legacy media? Repetition. 24/7, 100% anti-Trump sentiment. Twisting, jamming, unfair propaganda. In other words, they are just as likely to be swayed towards voting for President Trump as they are of being swayed away from him based on the reporting of legacy media. It all depends on the individual’s ability to discern; are they suckers or are they the type who would notice the unambiguous bias?

To put it bluntly, progressive legacy media is firing blanks, which is essentially what the President said in his Tweet.

But that leaves big tech. They’re more clever than legacy media. They live in the shadows. The devil is in the algorithms, which are man-made and leftist-influenced. They pose a different challenge. And guess who gets to fight them…

Us.

Patriots.

Conservative journalists.

The purveyors of truth.

You see it with PragerU, Project Veritas, and the many right-leaning news outlets working hard to bring the truth to light. You see it with my team here at NOQ Report, who work tirelessly with no reward other than knowing we’re fighting the good fight.

It’s our responsibility to tell every American that big tech is putting their huge thumbs on the scales to tip them in favor of the Democrats. We’re doing the investigation, testing our theories, and reporting the truth to the people.

Between legacy media’s foolish adherence to pure anti-Trumpism and conservative media’s exposing reports about big tech, the President should win reelection easily. Moreover, the GOP should build on their majority in the Senate and win back the House. On top of that, we should make up lost ground in governors’ mansions, mayors’ offices, state legislatures, and city councils. All of this is possible as long as we work together towards the cause.

We are not a non-profit or a PAC. But we are crowdfunded and dependent on the generosity of our readers. And based on our mission, I firmly believe that donations made to NOQ Report are more influential dollar-for-dollar than donations made to Republican campaigns. Money donated to us helps bring the truth to more Americans, and if there’s anything the GOP needs right now, it’s for Americans to know the truth.

This isn’t false confidence in our election prospects. This is earnest belief that if we do this right and focus solely on the truth, voters will see through the lies from the left and make 2020 a landslide victory across the board.

Big Facebook announcement falls flat in under 24 hours

Facebook's big announcement falls flat in 24 hours

Yesterday, Facebook was very proud to announce the results of a year-long review by former Senator Jon Kyl. The purpose of the review was to better understand the accusations of political bias, mostly from Conservatives, against the platform. According to Kyl’s editorial in the Wall Street Journal, the concerns of those he interviewed fell into six broad categories.

  • Bias is baked into Facebook’s algorithms and they should not be in the business of separating fact from fiction
  • That the platform’s community standards were constantly evolving and objections to the category “hate speech”
  • Bias in the employees charged with enforcing the rules and the appeals process for smaller organizations
  • Requiring advertisers to register as political organizations to run ads with a policy focus
  • The drawn-out ad approval process due to the stringent ad policies
  • Lack of viewpoint diversity at the company

In the announcement, there were several things Facebook planned to address which included how they handled political ads and the creation of an oversight board for how they handled the appeals of some high profile content removal decisions.

The announcement was supposed to ease tensions between the social media company and users on the political right. However, rather than getting out of the business of fact-checking content, the company committed to explaining newsfeed rankings. These algorithms and “fact checks” have already negatively impacted several Conservative sites. Not sure an explanation fixes that problem. They will also now tell you when they limit the distribution of a post because their “fact-checkers” give it a false rating. Again, why not just stop?

Probably because they are serving two masters in this fight. Facebook consented to a series of civil rights audits from a very left-leaning assessor. Facebook COO, Sheryl Sandberg released the commitments from that process on June 30, 2019. One action:

We’re taking steps to address this, including a US pilot program where some of the people who review content on Facebook only focus on hate speech instead of a range of content that can include bullying, nudity, and misrepresentation. We believe allowing reviewers to specialize only in hate speech could help them further build the expertise that may lead to increased accuracy over time.

Balancing the commitments made to both groups will be challenging to say the least. And within 24 hours of the announcement of what they would do to address Kyl’s assessment two high profile content decisions were made.

This morning, news hit that an ad from Women for Trump was removed. I confirmed this with one of the board members. Supposedly, because it assumed the gender of the women in the picture.

 

Can you say peak ridiculousness? Perhaps the assessment they received from Senator Kyl didn’t mention that many people on the right, as well as the vast majority Americans, assume the gender of almost everyone they see. I am also wondering how many posts Forbes Women and Women for Women International have had removed. Since they “assume the gender” of the person pictured on nearly every post.

The other content decision was not allowing the website started by popular Trump-supporting meme maker, Carpe Donktum to work.

Now we all know the left can’t meme, but the right has some pretty good meme artists. And anyone who has spent any time on social media is aware of what a meme is. Satirical short videos or images that everyone knows are a creation, not news or a depiction of factual events. The website was even called “Meme World”. Saying satirical content violates their “Community Standards” is about as stupid as Snopes fact-checking the Babylon Bee. Or just an admission that having a sense of humor is not allowed on Facebook.

Until Facebook decides to employ a good faith approach to known creators, organizations, and campaigns, rather than allowing fringe left-wing zealots to flag content with abandon, nothing will change. Just because Facebook recognizes dozens of genders doesn’t mean most Americans do. Yet activists can use a ridiculous rule based on fringe political ideology to get a perfectly valid political ad pulled.

One that was shared by the President’s official Facebook account. Not the best kick off for a grand announcement about addressing bias. Facepalm Facebook.

Was the Inca Empire a successful example of socialism?

Was the Inca Empire a successful example of socialism

As socialists pivot from one failed example of socialism to the next failed example of socialism to the welfare state that decries claims of socialism, perhaps we should prepare ourselves for when the socialist reach the bottom of the barrel with examples of the collective ideology’s past successes. And before you say, “well that’s silly, there’s no way a pre-French enlightenment civilization could have practiced a successful form a socialism, sufficient enough to use as an example by the left” consider the fact that a French academic by the name of Louis Boudan penned an extensive treatise entitled “A Socialist Empire: The Incas of Peru” in 1962.

Now, this work does not appear to be an endorsement of communism, though the author seems to have a vested interest in the using the “no true Scotsman” fallacy given that this was written post World War 2 and in the Cold War with regards to true socialism. However, the very title, provocatively named, is certainly a sign that the political Left in contemporary times could refer to the Inca as a successful example of socialism, that only fell by the technologically advantaged Spaniards. But Louis Boudan is not the only one who has made this comparison, leaving us wondering why the Left has not seized on the Inca who seem to have had a more successful run than any contemporary Marxist regime. The likeliest reason that that Inca are not used as an example of successful socialism is likely that the proponents of socialism, to be blunt, are not historically informed. Still, this is a foreseeable argument in the imminent future and we best know what we are talking about when it inevitably comes because when the Left popularizes an example of alleged socialism practiced by non-whites they will pounce, but until then we await a Vox video.

The Inca Empire could prove to be the only example of socialism that did not self collapse, other than the Catalonia socialism which lasted only three years. But of course, all of this is conditional on the premise of whether or not the Inca Empire was truly socialist country. Perhaps it would be best to grant the Left that premise. Even if the Inca were a socialist empire, the ensuing result was a constant need for war, which is a commonality with the Stalinist ideology. Kings and Generals does a good job breaking down the Inca society for the laymen to understand. Key points discussed in the video are:

  • The Inca were highly adapted to their living environment with regards to agriculture, construction, and irrigation
  • The Inca had what appears to be a welfare state
  • The Inca worshiped their dead
  • The “corporations” of dead bodies accumulated disproportionate amount of wealth
  • The wealth belonging to the dead bodies necessitated the Emperors accumulating wealth of their own through war. This cycle repeats.

As you can see, there were multiple flaws in the Inca society that had a trajectory of collapse because of the pyramid scheme the system creates for its ruling class. The inevitable demise was expedited by the Spaniards. But going back to the foundational premise as to whether the Inca were socialist or not, the contrasts are enough to fail a purity test; had there been an organic collapse, the modern socialist would deny this as true socialism. It’s a never ending fallacy, though the dead corporate estates of the Inca goes against everything socialist preach. However, as human history has shown, socialism has always led to the personal enrichment of those in the innermost circles of power. Socialist or not? You decide, but be prepared to argue that the Inca were not a successful example of socialism.

Why isn’t gun control considered to be sexist as well as racist?

Why isnt gun control considered to be sexist as well as racist

Liberty [Gun] Control is rooted in racism. It also adversely affects women. Why isn’t it considered to be racist and sexist?

A recent video from One America News Network entitled: ‘Gun Rights Are Women’s Rights’ made this very important point on the topic of Liberty Control. The basic facts of science have one sex at a disadvantage to the other, with guns being the great equalizer.

Why doesn’t the Left have to answer for the sexism and racism of Liberty control?

These days, the national socialist Left wields pejoratives Racism and Sexism like an assault weapon. So why aren’t these labels applied to them for their incessant attacks against freedom? Firearms are the great equalizers, with the Left’s gun confiscation agenda having a disproportionate effect on women and minorities.  Somehow the Left escapes these facts being applied to them, while they exploit those words with abandon.

We’ve already detailed the racism aspect of this issue here, and case for Liberty control being sexist made in this video.

Why the gun is civilization..

We will wrap this up with a column written in 2007 by Marko Kloos on a WordPress blogging site the Munchkin wrangler. It encapsulates the issue of firearms down to one proposition on how human being deal with each other.

MARCH 23, 2007 by MARKO KLOOS
Why the gun is civilization.
Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.

In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force. The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gangbanger, and a single gay guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.

There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we’d be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger’s potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat–it has no validity when most of a mugger’s potential marks are armed. People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that’s the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.

Then there’s the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser. People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don’t constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level. The gun is the only weapon that’s as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weightlifter. It simply wouldn’t work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn’t both lethal and easily employable.

When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation…and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.
