When Pete Buttigieg dropped out of the Democratic nomination race Sunday, many speculated he had cut a deal with someone. Maybe it was the DNC. Maybe it was Joe Biden. Maybe it was Mike Bloomberg. Our EIC determined it was likely a combination of all three. Now that Amy Klobuchar has dropped out the following day, it is crystal clear Establishment Democrats are pulling out all stops to prevent Bernie Sanders from getting the nomination.
Though Buttigieg was ahead of Klobuchar in all indicators, the Minnesota Senator’s early exit is the most perplexing. She was set to win one primary—her home state—which would have capped off an impressive run and likely solidified her as a potential VP pick for the eventual nominee. But she pulled up short. She couldn’t wait one day to find out if there was a miracle in store for her in the future or a bittersweet finale to this particular campaign in the friendly territory of Minneapolis. Instead, she ended early and endorsed Biden. It only makes sense if we assume powerful Democrats cut a deal of some sorts with her.
And Sanders is getting pushed out once again.
The large mountain the frontrunner had to climb has now gotten quite a bit taller. Super Tuesday could have been a landslide victory for Sanders in the way of delegates as a crowded moderate field had the potential of locking out all of the other candidates from reaching the 15% threshold. Now, Biden’s and Bloomberg’s prospects are much brighter, especially in California where nobody but Sanders was projected to receive a significant number of delegates. The calculus has changed dramatically.
Is it unfair? Perhaps. But this is just politics. If the DNC is helping Biden consolidate the moderate lane, and that certainly seems to be the current plan, then Sanders supporters are going to balk. This isn’t exactly what happened in 2016 as Hillary Clinton already had the moderate lane locked up at this point with no major challengers, but the wide range of candidates this election cycle had favored Sanders before. Now, he’s the one facing the split vote conundrum thanks to Elizabeth Warren staying in for Super Tuesday. Biden lost two of his challengers dragging him down, but Sanders has retained the one person pulling from the far-left lane.
The nomination is still up for grabs and it’s unlikely this will be resolved without a contested convention. But the chances of Bernie Sanders having a clear plurality of delegates going in are now slim. We can expect it to get much uglier from here.

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.
