Going into the end of July, Senator Kamala Harris had all but won the Veepstakes. Joe Biden and his team had chosen her as his running mate and was in the finalizing process of vetting her when all of a sudden a group of powerful Democrats stepped in and canceled her. Between the “leak” on POLITICO of her being selected and the meticulously hand-written notes addressing Harris, the scheduled announcement for the first week of August had Kamala’s name written all over it.
Except, it didn’t happen. They pushed back the date. Buzz about Harris stopped. Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice and Congresswoman Karen Bass started skyrocketing up the charts. Bass subsequently experienced bad press over past statements, so her star power has faded as well. That leaves Rice as the most likely to get tapped.
As JD notes in the latest episode of NOQ Report, there are two likely reasons for this. Either they found something in the vetting of Harris that spooked them at the last minute or the Deep State stepped in to insert their preferred future president. Both seem about as likely as the other, and we’ll likely never know the real reason. Then again, she may end up getting tapped anyway, in which case this is all moot. We’ll see soon. Perhaps.
Republican strategists are drooling over the prospects of Susan Rice as the VP candidate. She’d give the GOP tons of fodder to bring up corruption in the Obama administration while discrediting the Democrats’ ticket in one fell swoop.
COVID-19 may take down an independent 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. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. 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.
