There has been much made of the release of the Trump-Zelensky transcript yesterday in which the private conversation between the two world leaders was released to quell calls for impeachment by the Democrats. And while it put Republicans at ease knowing nothing much was said while sending Democrats scrambling to turn nothing into something, there’s a major problem with this whole circus that will impact American foreign relations going forward.
Washington Examiner’s Social Media Director Will Ricciardella joined Liz Wheeler on her One America News show, Tipping Point, to discuss this troubling incident.
“I don’t think anyone’s talking about the damage it has done to America as a whole just because these people, these partisans or Democrats or the media don’t like Donald Trump,” Ricciardella pointed out.
“Right, because no foreign leader can have confidence that what he or she said to the President of the United States is going to stay confidential,” Wheeler reiterated.
There seems to have been very little choice on the part of the White House, especially if the whistleblower’s complaint, which may be released to the public as early as today, seems more damaging than what the actual transcript shows. This seems to be the most likely scenario, otherwise the White House could have simply kept the transcript confidential. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo received permission from President Zelensky before prompting President Trump to declassify the transcript, but there are still things said in there that would have been better off to have remained between the two leaders and their staff.
By pushing the Ukraine story all the way to an impeachment inquiry, Democrats have done long-term, potentially permanent damage to presidents going forward. If conversations are not sacred, leaders will be reluctant to talk to us.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
