Oprah Winfrey is a billionaire. She’s one of the richest persons in the world. That’s why it’s quite hilarious that one of the ways she’s making money this month is to promote a book, Caste, that promotes the notion that America is one giant caste system that’s designed to keep the vast majority of us down.
America is literally the opposite of a caste system. This is the only country in the world in which anyone can start from any position and through hard work, smart moves, unique talents, or dumb luck can improve their situation and become wildly successful. Winfrey herself is a product of the non-caste system we have in the United States.
My next @oprahsbookclub pick, “Caste” by @Isabelwilkerson, should be required reading for humanity. It eloquently examines the unspoken caste system that has shaped America. Download a copy on @AppleBooks here: https://t.co/cAkzEPCFL3 #ReadWithUs pic.twitter.com/9WAXk7QP9r

One of the oldest tricks in the book (no pun intended) is making people believe one thing when the exact opposite is true. Whether through deflection, projection, or reflection, the powerful have long used this technique to make them seem to be what they’re not. Winfrey is a perfect example who endears herself to the “common people” while living far above them financially. She has mastered the art of seeming relatable when nothing could be further from the truth. A huge part of her success is based on a lifetime pretending to be what she’s not.
Don’t get me wrong. Winfrey is a very giving person. But she has demonstrated poor judgment when it comes to ideologies to support and people to promote. She was a strong promoter of Harvey Weinstein, for example, going so far as to introducing young aspiring actresses to him. Whether she knew what would happen to them from the introduction is unknown, but the best case scenario for her is that she was willfully ignorant since apparently most in Hollywood knew he was a monster and did nothing.
A Hollywood billionaire is trying to tell people they’re oppressed by the system, and for $21.78 (a 32% discount!), they can be told why things are so bad for them. Wow. Oprah Winfrey is a piece of work.
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. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
