Today, billionaire Michael Bloomberg filed with the FEC to run for president. It wasn’t an announcement; he was required to file with the FEC once he filed to be on the ballot in Alabama within 15 days. But it keeps the door open, and that’s the point. He wants the door to remain open for as long as possible so he can swoop in and save the day if he feels the day needs to be saved for the Democrats.
Last night’s debate didn’t dissuade him. The “moderate” frontrunner in the race, former Vice President Joe Biden, had an awful debate with another major patented gaffe. Bloomberg feels the other frontrunners, with the possible exception of Pete Buttigieg, are too radical to win the election or to run the country properly if they did win.
The filing is the latest sign that the former New York City mayor and billionaire businessman could soon join the crowded Democratic nominating contest. He is expected to announce a decision in the coming days.
Bloomberg has already filed to appear on the Democratic primary ballot in three states, Alabama, Arkansas and Texas, and his team has indicated that he would not contest the traditional early-state contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina, an acknowledgment of what would be a late entry to the race.
If Bloomberg decides to enter the campaign, his impact on the nominating contest would likely not be apparent until after those early state contests.
But there’s more to this than just Bloomberg sitting on the fence. It’s a good strategic move for him to hop into the race later. If he hops in now, he will likely lose throughout the first month of primary season. He has no ground game in the early states, which means he probably doesn’t have enough time to compete. Rather than take the losses and lose momentum, he’s looking to the first Super Tuesday as the target for him to come in and win the nomination in one fell swoop.
A big showing on Super Tuesday would likely solidify his possibility for winning the nomination in the states following it, especially if Biden keeps failing at everything and Buttigieg continues to fail at inspiring African-American voters. And if anyone can have a quick entry with impact, it’s the guy with over $50 billion behind him.
Everything going forward for Bloomberg will be testing the waters and stoking interest in his potential run. He’s a data guy, so getting reactions to his every move, including today’s FEC filing, will go a long way to either pushing him to run or dissuading him from trying. How the people react to him and the other candidates will help him make the decision. His deadline is likely mid-February, two weeks before Super Tuesday, at which point he would blitz the Super Tuesday states and dominate the news cycle while avoiding political scrutiny for the months preceding his announcement. It’s actually a pretty brilliant strategy.
At this point, the only person who can likely stop a Bloomberg run is if Buttigieg can take control of the board until then. He’s rising in the polls rapidly, but a steady continuous rise may be the only thing to dissuade Bloomberg from playing hero.

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 six sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- 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,
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
