There was great news in the early part of today’s Fox News Town Hall with the White House Task Force on the Wuhan Coronavirus. Vice President Mike Pence said they have not even discussed the possibility of a national “lockdown” or “stay at home order.” This news came even before President Trump joined the Town Hall.
That’s great news for both the economy and our sanity. Unfortunately, there are many areas around the country, including California where I live, that have taken the draconian measure of locking us all down. The vast majority of businesses have been closed. Restaurant lobbies are empty. Paychecks are not coming in. Wages are not accumulating. People are hurting. Is it worth it?
That’s the question that has much of the nation polarized. Some say it’s necessary, that we must keep large sectors of the economy closed for a short time. Others say it’s an overreaction and often point to the fact that the coronavirus seems to be deadly for only the elderly and those with underlying health conditions.
Passions are strong in both directions and Twitter, which is normally a cesspool of bad ideas and heated debates, is worse now than it’s ever been. Everyone has an opinion. Thankfully, some of them are lucid…
With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
People, I saw it. I’m not offended and don’t get offended. A video game reporter for WaPo who hasn’t missed a paycheck is so removed from reality that their opinion is worth less than hyena spittle. https://t.co/qmgRLcGkst

We are seeing government overreach in response to #COVID19… the question is what kind of country will we be coming out of this? Will we be one of freedom & liberty, more self-reliant than before? Or one of authoritarianism & where our rights are stripped away? https://t.co/MeemUfdgNX

Both things are true:
The Virus is being used by Democrat elites to overreach and try to bring about authoritarianism and change our elections
The Virus is real and deadly and originated in Wuhan, China, China is an enemy, and it will get worse this week

Person A: We need to save lives!
Person B: Agreed! We should also make sure we have an economic recovery plan in place so people can work as soon as feasible to provide for their families.
A: WOW SO YOU WANT TO SACRIFICE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS SO YOU CAN GET RICH. JUST WOW

It’s completely understandable that people are scared and want others to participate in putting an end to the spread of this disease. But is there a limit? Some have suggested there will be more lockdowns soon. Others say they may extend the lockdowns throughout the summer. Considering how bad off people are already, an extended lockdown seems like an economy-crusher.
Americans need to practice safe habits and protect themselves as they see fit. But part of protecting ourselves and our families means the security of putting food on the table and a roof over our heads. We must not let the coronavirus destroy that possibility.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ 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 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.
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.
