There are many reasons to believe the 2020 election could be a red wave as the Republican Party makes gains in the Senate, takes back control of the House of Representatives, and secures a second term for President Trump. But current considerations of “common sense” gun control measures such as universal background checks, red flag gun laws, and assault weapons bans by some on the right are incorrectly being perceived as good political moves.
Passing gun control will not have a positive impact on the way the electorate sees the GOP. In fact, doing so will sink the GOP’s chances and could put the White House in jeopardy.
Lest we forget, there is no scenario in which gun control advocates on the left or even in the center will view the passage of gun control measures as a Republican strength. There’s a reason Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have “offered” to have a Rose Garden ceremony for the signing of their laws. They know the American people will credit them with getting the President to bend rather than the supposed narrative that Republicans are doing things to stop gun violence. Mainstream media will herald the moment as an example of Democrats forcing the will of the American people onto a reluctant GOP and capitulating President.
Signing any of these measures into law will make the President look weak to the left, weaker to the center, and weakest to President Trump’s conservative base on the right. It will be a betrayal regardless of how the White House spins it. Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy can release all the proclamations of victory they want, but this will be viewed as a win by Chuck, Nancy, and the Democrats.
It will embolden them and inspire their base to want more. That’s the nature of gun control. It always needs more because it never achieves the goals it claims to desire. Every mass shooting will bring about more calls to “do something.” Every rise is gun violence will be met with irrational calls to take away even more aspects of our 2nd Amendment rights while any decrease in gun violence will be used as an example of how gun control works.
As Senator Ted Cruz noted last week, “If Republicans abandon the 2nd Amendment and demoralize millions of Americans who care deeply about 2nd Amendment rights, that could go a long way to electing a President Elizabeth Warren.”
Republicans on Capitol Hill and in the White House MUST stand true to the Constitution and our 2nd Amendment rights. Even the slightest display of weakness will be disastrous for America as well as their 2020 election hopes. They need to stop listening to polls showing ignorant people supporting gun control and take to the streets and airwaves to educate people about why gun control doesn’t work.
Instead of saying “we need a plan” or even “we have a plan” that includes gun control against law-abiding citizens, the President and the rest of the GOP needs to put 100% of their efforts and messaging towards combating crime and mental illness. Gun control is about inanimate objects, the vast majority of which are not used by criminals. Getting tougher on crime and putting more emphasis on mental illness goes to the core of the gun violence problem.
The biggest political mistake the GOP could make is to weaken the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens because of irrational, emotional responses to gun violence. Real solutions go after criminals. Gun control is not a real solution.
We are currently forming the American Conservative Movement. If you are interested in learning more, we will be sending out information in a few weeks.

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,
