Millions of Americans want to get on with their lives. They believe the COVID-19 crisis has been overblown or that the detrimental effects of the lockdown are worse than the risks associated with the disease. Many have engaged in civil disobedience, including the owners of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, NJ. Now the borough council in Camden County has voted to rescind their business license over repeatedly reopening in defiance of Democratic Governor Phil Murphy’s draconian lockdown orders.
According to NJ.com:
The Bellmawr council voted 5 to 1 to rescind the mercantile license of Atilis Gym after an hour-long hearing that featured comments from the gym owners’ attorney, the borough’s lawyer and council members. One of the gym owners, Ian Smith, sat in the council chamber, along with a half dozen police officers and 10 members of the public allowed to attend in seats spaced 6-feet apart.
“Anybody who didn’t already have their minds made up would have made the right choice,” Smith said outside of the hearing.
One of the last times he was inside the Bellmawr municipal complex, earlier this month, he was in handcuffs after being arrested. This time he entered on his own free will but the circumstance was equally unpleasant.
Lest we forget, nobody is forced to go to the gym if it’s open. With face mask and social distancing mandates in place, there should be very little concern from those who are terrified of the coronavirus since their contact is so limited with others. If people choose to take the risk, whether it’s by going to the gym or doing whatever they want to do with their lives, that should be their choice. In New Jersey, you’re not allowed to think for yourself.
This is all about the radical left’s need for everyone to live in fear. Their authoritarianism can only shine brightest when the people are no free. To take those freedoms, they will use whatever means necessary to make us comply.
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.

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.
