The coronavirus threat has been back on top of the news cycle ever since the narrative shifted away from covering the George Floyd riots and crime sprees. Yes, they’re still happening, but the left’s push to promote them has morphed in different directions. Now, the coronavirus is back on top in newsrooms and they’re attempting to drive the lockdowns back into the mainstream. Unfortunately, it’s working. Even Texas just announced a face mask mandate.
Two things are top of mind right now. The first is the face mask debate. Mandates for face masks are spreading again, and it’s turning more contentious. But that’s much less of a real issue than the second risk, namely the renewed lockdowns. The economy has been improving, so Democrats and even some Republicans are pushing to kill it again. They need to in order to have any chance in the November elections.
What they don’t want you to know is that drug overdoses are spiking. They increased, year-over-year, 18% in March, 29% in April, and 42% in May. Keep in mind, overdoses were in decline as recently as January. Now, they’re spiking, and this can squarely be blamed on the lockdowns causing depression, loneliness, and loss of hope for a better future.
I talked to Steven Manzo in late March, just after he lost his job at a Michigan bar.
2 weeks later he died of a drug overdose, his first relapse in years.

“By being locked in and shut away, we’re denying ourselves critical health care services and the economic and social dislocation from being shut down is leading to mental illness and suicide risk,” Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told “Bill Hemmer Reports” in May.
“So this country’s got to get back to work. We’ve got to get back to school. We’ve got to get back to living,” he added.
On the latest Rucker Report, JD discusses the challenges that are facing people because of the coronavirus lockdown that are literally killing people. It’s the type of information the left is attempting to suppress, which is why getting this information out there is so important.
It’s more than drug overdoses. Getting infected by the coronavirus gives you a chance, albeit very small, of dying from it. But the economy-killing and morale-destroying effects of the coronavirus lockdowns are affecting tens of millions negatively. They need to end.
Drug overdoses are spiking. There’s the destitution caused by loss of jobs and businesses. Suicides. Crimes in general are rampant and murders in particular are rising. Domestic violence is spiking. The lockdowns are the reason for all of these.

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.
Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
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), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). 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 make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free 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.
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.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD 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.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
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,
