There’s a huge difference in the way California Governor Gavin Newsom and Texas Governor Greg Abbott handle cities in their states with rampant homelessness and dangerous conditions. Newsom defends cities like San Francisco (where he was once mayor) and tells everyone there’s nothing to worry about. Abbott issues ultimatums, as he did today to Austin’s Mayor, saying the streets need to be cleaned up and homelessness addressed before November 1st or the state will be forced to intervene.
The letter, which Abbot sent to Austin Mayor Steve Adler today, details the problems the progressive city is facing, problems similar to those documented in places like San Francisco and Seattle. These problems include businesses having difficulty keeping their sidewalks clean, homeowners fearful of property crime, rampant drug abuse, and literal human feces lining the streets.
Today I sent a letter to @MayorAdler about the growing crisis arising from the Austin Homeless policy.
Feces & used needles are piling up & residents are endangered.

These are health and crime issues American citizens are forced to face because the Democrats in their cities’ governments are unwilling to address the issues. Despite high taxes bringing in plenty of money, the tax dollars are wasted on a progressive agenda that does not benefit the people and in many ways enables the problems to flourish.
Austin is one of the most progressive cities in the nation, boasting about its leftist politics from within the red state of Texas. But as problems mount, the image of the city has been deteriorating as fast as conditions in which the people are forced to live. Abbott is right to make the ultimatum. He doesn’t want to have to do it for them, but if the Democrats are unwilling to address their own problems, it’s up to the state to take action.
When a city is run as poorly as Austin, the state must reluctantly take responsibility for the safety of the people within it. Such things should not be, but as progressives continue to pretend these problems don’t exist, someone has to fix them.

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 new GiveSendGo. 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
- Truth Based Media
- 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.
