When I’m wrong, I say I’m wrong. On the University of Farmington story, I was very wrong and am elated to be able to correct the record. It’s funny because it was the first time I’d ever written an article critical of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). I should have known better than to jump to conclusions as I’ve always been a strong supporter of ICE, CBP, and all law enforcement tasked with keeping us safe from illegal immigrants, smuggling, and transnational organized crime.
In 2015, ICE established the fake university as a way for visa overstays to be located, apprehended, and deported. It was a honey pot, and this is the part that had me initially concerned about entrapment. That continued to be my stance until ICE released this video of the process they used with the “students.” They made it crystal clear that there were no classes at the school, which would prohibit their ability to remain in the U.S. legally since class attendance is a prerequisite for visa extensions. And if that didn’t make it clear to them, they were asked if they understood that signing up to “attend” the university was illegal.
None of the "students" deported were seeking "the high-quality higher education America can offer."
They were told there were no classes.
They were told it was illegal.
They wanted to stay in the country by sidestepping the system and DENYING real foreign students a chance. https://t.co/exyg0owIJA

It’s embarrassing that my reaction was similar to Elizabeth Warren’s, but the facts that were released at the time didn’t indicate how far ICE went out of its way to make absolutely certain the student were aware they were committing a crime. It is not entrapment. It’s tantamount to law enforcement leaving a window down on a car window with a purse inside while monitoring it. Just because they left the honey pot to attract criminals doesn’t mean they were entrapped. They could do the right thing and not try to steal the purse, just as these students could have done the right thing and enrolled at a real university.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement released undercover footage on Friday in response to media reports that claimed ICE established a fake college — the University of Farmington — to lure foreign students into committing visa fraud.
The undercover video shows foreign students discuss enrolling at the fake university. Numerous individuals admit they want to enroll in order to keep their visa status, despite officials telling the students that the school does not offer classes.
In each instance, the individual admits they know they are engaging in illegal activity.
In a statement, acting ICE Director Derek Brenner said:
The undercover video directly rebuts claims that ICE agents unethically entrapped foreign nationals into committing visa fraud.
These students were not victims. They walked in willfully, attempted to sign up for a program they were told was illegal, and chose to circumvent our visa program, costing others an opportunity. Elizabeth Warren owes ICE an apology. But she won’t.
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.

Too Few Are Telling the Truth
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), and Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCO). 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 break away. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken away 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.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
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.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we 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.
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,
