Jessica Kwong has been demonized by both sides of the aisle. To the right, she’s the reporter who posted a fake news story claiming President Trump was golfing and Tweeting on Thanksgiving when in reality he was spending his holiday serving food and spending time with soldiers in Afghanistan. To the left, specifically Newsweek and their cronies, she’s a journalist who embroiled them in controversy over a story that was inaccurate. But based on her story (as well as common sense), she’s a victim of bad editorial decisions that led to her being made into a scapegoat for the once-prominent news outlet.
According to Kwong, she was assigned the story a week before Thanksgiving. She was to detail how the President spent previous holidays and speculate about how he would be spending this one. In that regard, the story was accurate, and had it been published the day before Thanksgiving rather than while he was landing in the Middle East, the story would have been a big nothingburger, some minor fodder for Trump supporters to say, “Your prediction was wrong.”
The way the story read backs up Kwong’s assertions. It was Newsweek’s editors who decided to run the story on Thanksgiving itself. When Kwong learned the President had gone to the Middle East, she called for her story to be edited to reflect the new information and took down her Tweet, replacing it with this one:
Trump headed to Afghanistan to surprise U.S. troops on Thanksgiving https://t.co/f7Xeqz1ZGQ Deleting this tweet because it was written before knowing about the president’s surprise visit to Afghanistan-an honest mistake.

Now, before we brand her a victim, it should be noted the tone of the story was quite negative. She clearly didn’t approve of the President’s past Thanksgiving endeavors and fully expected him to do the same thing this year. But for Newsweek to fire her over it is idiotic unless she’s lying about the timeline. She did what she was assigned to do and corrected the article with more information. Granted, the “correction” was conspicuously buried at the very bottom of the article and the initial set of edits were not reflective of the President’s true actions. But it was technically correct even if it was disingenuous.
She was turned into a sacrificial lamb at the alter of cancel culture, but she was the wrong lamb to roast. It was the editors who touched the story who should have been rebuked, and even then termination is overboard. Newsweek is making a bigger deal out of it for the sake of protecting their fading credibility. The story was speculation that should have run before Thanksgiving. It’s bad journalism, but it’s not inaccurate. Nevertheless, here we are. Kwong was martyred to protect the people above her.
Fake news is bad enough by itself. Once we through in bad decisions and finger-pointing, it’s clear the progressive mentality in newsrooms across America is not just making them push false narratives, but also fail to accept responsibility for failures.
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,
