Many of you know Alek Skarlatos as the Oregon National Guardsman who was one of the men who stopped a terrorist attack on a train heading towards Paris, France. He and his friends who thwarted that attack played themselves in the Clint Eastwood movie The 15:17 to Paris, depicting what happened on screen. From there he competed on the show Dancing with the Stars on ABC. Now, at 27 years old, he is setting his sights on Washington DC, as he’s now running for Congress to represent his home state of Oregon in the House of Representatives.
During this episode of Freedom One-On-One with Jeff Dornik, Alek and Jeff discuss his campaign and many hot-button issues. It’s important that you hear candidates positions on a lot of current events, as they’ll be the ones making the decisions when they are elected into a leadership position to lead our country. Discussing the COVID-19 “pandemic”, the ensuing shutdowns and the Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots, he understands the big picture and what needs to be done in each of these situations.
Alek also spoke to some of the issues that his constituents are concerned about, including the timber industry, coastal fishing and a few other areas of concern. It was refreshing to hear a candidate speak specifically about what needs to be resolved on the local level and what would be benefit his district. We need to remember that our Representatives are elected to do just that… represent us!
I hope that we see more fresh faces jump into running for political office. We often times complain about term limits and lifetime politicians. One solution to both of those problems is to get new conservative voices in the political world, challenging the status quo. It sure seems like Alek Skarlatos is ready to do just that! With endorsements from people like Dan Crenshaw, Ted Cruz, Steve Scalise and Kevin McCarthy, it sure looks like he has the perfect opportunity to flip a seat that has been held by the same Democrat politician for the last 33 years.
COVID-19 may take down an indepentent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
