5G is coming. It’s coming to the United States. It’s coming to Great Britain. It will be in most of the developed world at some point in the near future. And most of it will have components produced by Huawei, the Chinese company some experts believe to be a proxy for China’s Community Party.
This week, a delegation from the White House tried and failed to prevent Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government from considering Huawei. Their reason for brushing aside our security concerns: They already took all of it into consideration. But to be more blunt, they noted that there are no viable alternatives on the market today to achieve the ambitious goals set forth by the British government.
“The British public deserve to have access to the best possible technology,” Johnson said on BBC Breakfast. “We want to put in gigabit broadband for everybody. Now if people oppose one brand or another then they have to tell us what’s the alternative.”
Therein lies the problem. Currently, there is no alternative.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich chimed in on Twitter, noting that Great Britain must not get in bed with the Chinese on this one but also acknowledging the United States has not produced a better solution.
If Great Britain ends up accepting Huawei as a wireless carrier it will be a major victory for China and a major defeat for the United States. The absence of a coherent pro-growth, pro-competition initiative in the US has crippled us for a year in trying to cope with Huawei.

It’s an odd Catch-22. If we fear Huawei is going to steal data and spy on people for China, they need an alternative. But if they want 5G, Huawei is currently the only gatekeeper. Meanwhile, China is the only 5G gig in town for now.
American Conservative Movement
As we prepare for the 2020 election, we are joining with fellow patriots to form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. We will focus on two priorities until election day: Stopping Democrats from winning elections and promoting strong conservative candidates wherever they are viable. After the election, we will shift to focusing on educating America about the tenets of conservatism. We currently have 7500+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
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 new GiveSendGo. 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
- Truth Based Media
- 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.
