When President Obama supported the “gig economy” during his time in office, he did so with the very capitalist understanding that people who were empowered to take advantage of income flexibility in an increasingly technological society would be the driving force to prosperity. It was one of the few acknowledgements he made through his administration that conservatives and liberty-minded folks could agree with wholeheartedly.
The only loser in the gig economy is the antiquated Big Labor movement, the labor unions who once protected workers from exploitation but that now participate in exploitation for the benefit of the collective instead of the individuals. Workers rarely need collective-bargaining power that comes at the high cost of participating in a union which is why Big Labor has sought legislative solutions to their dwindling usefulness. Their saviors: Democrats.
Specifically, Big Labor turned to California and its radical progressive lawmakers to enact AB5, a bill they hope will blaze a trail for other blue states for years to come. As JD said, it’s an anti-American law. It’s also an economy killer brought about by “progressives” who are fighting against real progress in the economy and the technological world.
But even the age-old profession of journalism is being affected. In fact, it’s arguably the worst hit as freelance journalists across the state are being shunned by their former employers. Why? Because the law limits freelancers to 35 content submissions per year per publication. Considering many write multiple articles per week, the Draconian restriction is a job-killer.
With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
“As a freelancer I have the flexibility to do work while I’m at school or do work late at night or not work that week because I’m busy,” said graduate student and founder of Lone Conservative Kassy Dillon. Freelancing allowed her to pay her way through graduate school. Now, she may have to take out student loans to make up the difference.
This video by ReasonTV highlights some of the challenges being faced by freelance writers in California who are being harmed by AB5. For a law that’s supposed to empower people, it’s doing a great job at subverting their needs all for Big Labor’s benefit.

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.
