At 25-years-old, rising Republican star Madison Cawthorn will be the youngest member of Congress when he’s sworn in next January. He’s practically guaranteed a victory in a district that saw White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows win by 30-40 points every election before joining the Trump administration. But leftists are trying to smear Cawthorn over an image they believe is associated with this alleged racist beliefs.
The problem is, for anyone to see the image as racist, they’d have to completely ignore everything other than the leftist narrative. The circumstances and context all tell a different story, which is why progressive media is ignoring it.
I don’t cower to the mob. The new Republican Party that I represent will fight back against liberal lies.

According to The Blaze:
The post from his Instagram featured a photograph of Cawthorn and his brother at Eagle’s Nest, a historical site that Hitler is known to have used as a vacation retreat.
“The vacation house of the Führer. Seeing the Eagles Nest has been on my bucket list for awhile, it did not disappoint. Strange to hear so many laughs and share such a good time with my brother where only 79 years ago a supreme evil shared laughs and good times with his compatriots,” wrote Cawthorn in the post from July 2017.
Cawthorn said that he took his photograph in the same spirit as U.S. military forces did later to celebrate their defeat of the Nazi threat.
Another fake news controversy:
When our soldiers were photographed at the Eagle’s Nest in 1945 they were clearly celebrating the Allies triumph over one of the greatest evils in human history. They weren’t celebrating evil; they were celebrating their victory over evil. pic.twitter.com/K4rbSGjYqX

Referring to Adolf Hitler as “supreme evil” in context of the image clearly shows no support for the Nazi leader, but leave it to leftist media to ignore that context. Welcome to being a Republican politician, Madison Cawthorn.
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.
