Michael Johns is the co-founder of the Tea Party, as well as the former speechwriter for President George HW Bush. He has an extensive background in the political and policy world. What some aren’t as familiar with is Michael’s history with Liberty University and Jerry Falwell Sr, which gives him some additional insight in relation to what’s going on with the current Jerry Falwell Jr “scandal”.
As we all know, Jerry Falwell is on indefinite leave after a photo of him on a yacht dressed as a character from the Trailer Park Boys alongside his wife’s secretary. People immediately called on his resignation, citing that photo as inappropriate, unbecoming of a Christian university president and even talking about the inappropriateness of taking a photo with a woman that’s not his wife. Interestingly, these very same critics will condemn people like Mike Pence for not having meals alone with another woman, but I digress.
Michael explained just how successful that Jerry Falwell Jr has been leading Liberty University, turning their sports program into highly competitive teams, fundraising with the best of University Presidents (which is one of the primary jobs for that role) and turning Liberty into a beacon of conservatism in the academic world, one of the few remaining big Conservative Christian universities in the country. You may not like the Instagram photo, but we can’t lose the war to win a battle. Also, why must we cancel someone simply because they do something we don’t like?
The second half of the episode focused on the Presidential election, breaking down the policies of Joe Biden and making the case for the necessity of President Donald Trump’s re-election. We are facing unprecedented attacks against the very fabric of our nation. This election is vitally important for Republicans to win. If we don’t, then we’ll be heading downhill fast, and I don’t know if we’d ever be able to recover.
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.
