Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. visited Hawaii in September 1959 to participate in statehood celebrations. Dr. King’s message and his personal example were totally compatible with the spirit of aloha.
David Duke’s is not: “White Nationalists Try To Claim Aloha Spirit As Their Own”
As a member of a small but growing cadre of conservatives in the 50th State, I am deeply concerned about the cultural misappropriation of the Spirit of Aloha by any person or organization outside the Aloha State. Unfortunately, some of Hawaii’s public figures have not been good embodiments of Aloha. I consistently chastised Senator Mazie Hirono during the Judicial Committee character assassination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for her betrayal of the Aloha Spirit.
So, the last thing we need now is a person with the racially divisive rhetoric of David Duke endorsing a radio program by Patrick Slattery which has been renamed from “Stormfront Radio” to “The Morning Aloha Report”. I certainly have never heard of Mr. Slattery or this radio show before, but it is reportedly one which promotes white nationalism.
It’s rather bizarre that Tulsi Gabbard is credited as the inspiration for this rebranding. The young Representative from Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District currently has a rather devious campaign to convince the eventual Democratic nominee for POTUS to select her as VP running mate. To her credit, she has previously denounced David Duke and refused any of his endorsements.
Having spent most of the last four decades here in Hawaii, and being back here to stay since 1991, the open and welcoming society of Hawaii’s people has always been a significant attraction for me. Racial, ethnic and cultural diversity are essential components of the social fabric of these islands of Polynesia.
While he was incredibly awkward in his articulation, I fully relate to what Representative Ed Case of Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District said: that he feels like an Asian trapped in a Caucasian body. That was in no way to belittle his own racial identity but rather just a recognition that we are all part of the wonderful multi-ethnic culture that is one of Hawaii’s unique contributions to the world.
In Hawaii, one does not have to be consciously thinking of the color of one’s own skin. It really shouldn’t and doesn’t matter. I just celebrated our 49th anniversary with the beautiful Filipina lady with whom God has blessed my life since 1970.
I’ve been here in the Asia-Pacific far longer than everywhere else combined. When the job took me inside the DC Beltway 30 years ago, I could hardly wait to escape and have been back here in the islands ever since.
I have not wasted time following the exploits of the David Dukes of this world. Love, not hate, is what makes the world go around. Anybody who wants to respect the Spirit of Aloha must realize that it is our unique lifestyle here in Hawaii. Any cultural misappropriation by others must be soundly condemned.
Anyone who promotes white supremacy or the ascendancy of any other specific race is totally out of sync with the Spirit of Aloha. While many of my own ancestors came to the new world of North America from Europe, I also have indigenous roots as my great-grandmother was full-blood Muscogee (Creek). On official government forms that used to say what is your race, pick one, I always defied that and crossed it out and marked both Caucasian and Native American. I’ve always been stubborn this way. ?
If you don’t have total respect for everyone of every background, do not insult Hawaii by misusing Aloha as part of your brand. One thing both Conservatives and Progressives ~ both Republicans and Democrats ~ in Hawaii have in common is that we can have respectful differences of opinion and still treat each other with the true Spirit of Aloha!
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,
