When Whistleblower Aid, the non-profit that started a GoFundMe page for the Ukraine whistleblower who may or may not be Eric Ciaramella, first launched their campaign in September, their fundraising efforts boomed. They had set a goal of $300,000 and after a month-and-a-half it seemed like they were going to easily surpass that number, reaching over $227,000 from 6100 donors. It was so fast that a complaint was filed on November 12 alleging the whistleblower complaint was a money-making scheme.
“We are requesting you investigate whether 18 USC 208, 18 USC 209, or any other criminal statute or regulation, has been violated by the federal employee you are protecting when they reportedly requested an investigation into a matter they had no direct personal knowledge of, and on account of which they were able to obtain sizeable gifts from unknown persons because of their official duty,” the complaint reads.
At the time of publication, the GoFundMe page raised roughly $227,000 from approximately 6,100 individuals. The GoFundMe page was started by Whistleblower Aid, a non-profit legal service that “helps patriotic government employees and brave, private-sector workers report and publicize their concerns — safely, lawfully, and responsibly.”
It was the day before the hearings officially went public with House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff beginning his deep dive into presumptions, innuendos, and outright lies. It had the effect of negating gains Democrats had made among Independents and even Republicans who supported impeachment. By the time the public hearings in the Intelligence Committee were done, support for impeachment had plummeted to its lowest levels.
The people who were eager to defend and assist the whistleblower weren’t impressed by the public hearings, either. In the 30-days since they began, the GoFundMe page has raised an additional… wait for it… $2148. That’s not chump change by any means, but it’s a far cry from the $227,000 they’d raised before the hearings went public.
After so much support for the whistleblower initially, it seems the public hearings have not only turned the country against impeachment, but against the whistleblower as well. Needless to say, they won’t be reaching their funding goals.

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.
