Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot must have very low self-esteem. She must be fully aware of how badly her reign over Chicago has been the last two years and is greatly ashamed by it. She should be, but that’s not the point. She has a superiority complex which prohibits her from showing remorse for her actions. In fact, it drives her to do what she announced yesterday by banning protesters from coming on her block.
She claims it’s about “safety” but, as part of her superiority complex, she must put her own safety above the safety of others. That’s how these things work. As rioters were destroying parts of her city—twice—she held police back from engaging. Why? Because it wasn’t her property or person that was in danger. In other words, she just didn’t care. As The Gateway Pundit reported:
The city is out of control under Mayor Lori Lightfoot.But Mayor Lightfoot was not worried about her own home. Mayor lightfoot has ordered police to protect her neighborhood. No Black Lives Matter or Antifa rioters are allowed down her street. But the Magnificent Mile is OK?
Her decision to ban protesters comes at a huge price to the city and its residents. As crime expands to historic levels and the need for law enforcement protecting the people has never been higher, she is redirecting a significant portion of the force to stopping protesters by her home. How significant? 10 officers? 20? 50? Nope, not even close. As The Blaze reported:
According to an email sent by the district’s commander at the time, officers assigned to enforce the directive were instructed to tell protesters “that it is against the city code and state law to protest” and that they must “leave immediately.”
After the warning is given, the street “should be locked down,” the instructions added.
In order to carry out the orders, a large contingent of officers have been routinely stationed outside the home. Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara told the Chicago Sun-Times that as many as 140 officers have been assigned to the home at certain times.
Elected officials in the United States are supposed to be working for the people. But Mayor Lightfoot holds herself in such high esteem, she will put her own citizens at risk to stop protesters on her block. You wanted this, Chicago.
Patriots stepping up to save independent media from COVID-19 woes
We were on the verge of a disastrous end, but you guys have been stepping up big time. We’re almost there.
This year has been a roller-coaster ride for tens of millions of Americans. We’ve experienced the hardest economic downturn in history thanks to the coronavirus lockdowns and many are still trying to recover. We’re among them. Despite record-breaking surges in traffic, our revenue has fallen dramatically. It’s strange knowing that we’re working harder and getting the truth out to more people, yet revenue on the site plummeted.
We have called on our patriotic readers and podcast listeners to pitch in what they can to help. The outpouring of support has been tremendous and extremely humbling. As a conservative, I have a hard time “begging” for funds to keep our news outlet running, but COVID-19 lockdowns and subsequent reduction of revenues have made it necessary. Nevertheless, the last month has shown us that patriots appreciate pro-American news as a contrast to the anti-American mainstream media outlets spreading lies incessantly.
We asked for help and you guys have been delivering. We raised over $3200, enough to keep us going for the rest of August and part of September! I cannot stress how much of a blessing this has been for not only NOQ Report as an organization but also for my family. This isn’t a hobby; we operate NOQ Report and all of the podcasts associated with it as a more-than-full-time job. Every day we’re producing tons of content and spreading the truth that mainstream media refuses to report. Even when they do report it, they do so with a leftist slant while pretending to be unbiased. We do not use subterfuge. We are unabashedly conservative in our opinion but the news we report is factual. It all comes from a conservative, America First perspective, but we do not lie.
This isn’t about propaganda. If it were, we would be no better than the mainstream media outlets we abhor. Instead, we focus on the truth because we know that being honest gives us credibility. Besides, conservatives almost always have the truth on our side.
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 $8,300 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 to 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.
