In 1979, when Great Britain had been crippled by widespread strikes, a foundering economy and chronic unemployment, the ruling Labour Party looked upon its stewardship of the government as managing the decline of a once powerful and robust nation. In their view, the country’s best days were behind it, and the best that they could do was see to it that Britons were made as comfortable as possible while they awaited the end.
Margaret Thatcher, of course, said nuts to that–a message that resonated with the British people, who swept Labour out of power that year and elected a Conservative majority that would run Parliament for the better part of the next twenty years. In that time, Thatcher instituted necessary but often painful reforms, breaking the back of the labor unions that had held Great Britain hostage and putting the country back on the path to prosperity. More than anything, her tenure proved that decline–in the words of the late, great Charles Krauthammer–is a choice, not an inevitability.
Bad ideas, however, have a way of sticking around and becoming resurgent, as this nation found out during the eight years of Barack Obama. Granted, Obama came to power in the midst of the Great Recession–a disaster not of his own making, but for which the policies of his Democrat Party bore a sizable responsibility. As President, though, Obama did his level best to capitalize on the bad economy, taking to heart the advice of his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel in never letting a crisis go to waste. Convincing the American people that they simply couldn’t make it without the federal government’s intervention in every aspect of their lives, he blew $1 trillion on union giveaways disguised as a stimulus, vastly expanded the welfare state, strangled American business with thousands of new regulations and foisted the boondoggle Obamacare on an unwilling public. Along the way, the economy didn’t get much better. The “recovery summer” that Obama promised would result from his policies never materialized–nor was it meant to. Like the Labour Party of decades past, Barack Obama didn’t see his role as returning the United States to its former glory. Quite the opposite, he was content–even enthusiastic–about our decline, seeing it as justice for all of America’s years as the world’s dominant power.
Toward that end, Obama and the Democrats made it their mission to condition the American people to be satisfied with less. He encapsulated that mindset perfectly in remarks he made to a PBS town hall in 2016, when Donald Trump ran for President under the promise to Make America Great Again. That kind of greatness, Obama argued, wasn’t even possible anymore, and nothing Trump could say or do was going to change that:
Pres. Obama on Donald Trump: "The answer is he doesn't have an answer." #POTUSonNewsHour https://t.co/0XtuCDJvAx

“Well, how exactly are you going to do that?” Obama asked about Trump bringing manufacturing jobs back to the United States. “What exactly are you going to do? There’s no answer to it. He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.”
He might as well have said, “Our best days are behind us, so you better get used to it.”
Trump, like Thatcher, didn’t accept that kind of small thinking, and ran his campaign on a promise that the American people deserved better than a President who meekly accepted our diminished status–that we could be great and we should be great, and that there was nothing holding us back from achieving that goal except poor leadership that didn’t put Americans first. And, three years into the Trump Administration, our booming economy and historically low unemployment have proven Krauthammer correct yet again: Decline is a choice, and we can choose to say no.
Which brings us to Joe Biden. In the Democrat debate last night, when asked about transitioning America away from fossil fuels to a mythical “green” economy, he got a very pointed question–and gave a very disturbing answer:
It is truly startling to hear a potential Democrat nominee for President say…
“Yes” when asked if he would be willing to sacrifice thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of blue collar job.

Not that Biden would ever have any problems about paying the bills. His decades of “service” in Washington have seen to it that he’ll never have to worry about money, and that’s not even counting the millions of dollars in sinecures he has secured for members of his family. But that he could be so cavalier about putting that many people out of work, all in the name of a so-called climate crisis that has never been conclusively proven–and sacrificing America’s energy independence in the process–says a lot. It tells us that he wants to return us to the bad old days of the Obama economy, and the presidency back to the task of managing America’s decline.

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.
