Mainstream media, Democrats, and anyone else living in fear of the coronavirus often say something to the rest of us that is meant to shame us. “Listen to the science,” they say, as if we’re neanderthals walking around mouth-breathing our way to extinction. But there’s a problem with their narrative. Sweden. If we are truly to listen to the science, then we cannot ignore the lesson that nobody else seems to be learning from the Swedish model for handling COVID-19.
In essence, they did nothing different. Business as usual. Sure, they restricted large gatherings, but there were no face mask mandates, no businesses shut down, no schools closed. Instead, they fought the disease the way that it was always intended to be fought, with our God-given immune systems and common sense precautions. They didn’t do everything perfectly; Sweden’s death count spiked in mid-April because they left their elderly too exposed to the disease. COVID-19 has an exponentially more damaging effect on the elderly than it does on young people, including children. Especially children.
Nevertheless, they have flattened their curve to almost nothing. There has been one COVID-19 related death in the last five days. One. And both their infections and deaths have been in a steady state of flattening since April, unlike literally every other nation in the world that experienced second and third waves. Their trend line has been consistently pointed downward for five months.
We know that Sweden didn’t do it perfectly because of those high death numbers in April and into May. Granted, they’re still lower than New Jersey which has fewer people and some of the harshest coronavirus lockdown mandates in the world, but it’s clear Sweden’s lack of attention for the elderly is the reason they had such high deaths before. We know this because the number of COVID-19 deaths for people under the age of 40 in Sweden is a total of 29. Out of nearly 6,000 total deaths, around a half of a percentage point were people age 0-39.
In the latest episode of NOQ Report, I dove into the numbers and did everything within my power to not get too angry about it. Following the bad news that we’re not really listening to science and perpetuating a lockdown based on politics alone, I had some good news. My interview with Josh Barnett, congressional candidate in AZ-07, yielded unexpected fruit as he described how he established a Private Membership Association to sidestep the lockdown for his gym. It’s a fascinating interview and may offer the roadmap for others to open up their businesses as well.
Sweden didn’t do everything right, but the fact that they have essentially defeated the coronavirus by doing the exact opposite of the rest of the world demonstrates why the press won’t talk about them anymore. WE need to spread the word.
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.
