President Trump is going to be blamed, just as he’s blamed for pretty much anything bad by Democrats and mainstream media. That’s a common theme that has been pervasive throughout the last four years, and in the vast majority of cases this theme is false. It’s not that the White House does everything perfectly, but they generally do what’s best for America. Democrats, on the other hand, do not, and mainstream media is complicit in promoting the propaganda that they’re innocent while Republicans are the ultimate form of evil in America.
The sad and avoidable death of Breonna Taylor at the hands of law enforcement should be a catalyst for police reforms, especially as they pertain to no-knock warrants. There is conflicting information about whether they had a no-knock warrant, but it’s clear that they knocked and identified themselves before forcing their way into the house. As I noted yesterday, either execute the no-knock warrant or knock and wait. The fact that they did what appears to be a combination of the two likely contributed to Taylor’s demise, but that’s a discussion for another time.
What can be considered unambiguous is that Democratic policies and their feckless leadership in cities like Louisville, Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Austin directly contribute to the rampant lawlessness. There’s a very clear reason why these cities seem to be most vulnerable to domestic terrorism. All of them have Democratic “leadership” at the city level and usually at the state level as well. That should tell us something, but Democrats try to rebuke the insinuations while mainstream media ignores the correlation. It’s 2020, so such things can be expected. That doesn’t mean we have to accept it and it should definitely mean we need to fight back.
In the latest episode of NOQ Report, I talked about the dangers that Democrats pose to these cities and why we need to make sure voters are aware of these Democratic failures before the election. They are trying to spin this to be President Trump’s fault. After all, it’s happening under his watch. But despite claims by some conservatives that the President needs to supersede Democratic leaders in these cities and states, we need to be careful. If federal primacy engages in questions of law and order when Democratic mayors and governors denounce it, we could find we’re wishing for something that is turned against us in the future. Imagine a hypothetical Democratic president who decides to use federal law enforcement on issues that should also be localized. We will not have a strong argument against it if some conservatives persist in calling for action by the President.
Federalism works for many reasons. One of those reasons pertains to law enforcement jurisdictions. It’s incumbent on law enforcement, city, and state leaders to request assistance from Washington DC. We should oppose the federal government taking too proactive of a role in local law enforcement issues, including riots. We would oppose a national mandate on gun control, for example, and right-leaning cities and states should be able to choose whether or not to enforce such a mandate. But if a Democratic president decides to send in federal law enforcement to enforce it, we must be able to say with consistency that such things are wrong. To be consistent, the federal government must allow local, city, and state law enforcement to do their jobs without interference until they explicitly request assistance.

The real takeaway here pertains to the election narrative. It’s imperative that we educate and inform those within our circles about the truth of these riots. They are happening in Democrat-run cities because Democrats embrace the spirit of lawlessness. This new variation of their party has allowed identity politics to suppress any sense of law and order they may have had. It’s easy for Republicans to say that Democrats have always been this way, but that’s simply not true. Democrats haven’t always allowed their cities to be overrun by riots. They’re just wont to do it today because the alternative—embracing law and order—puts them at odds with their base as well as with the big-money donors like George Soros who helped them get elected.
There is absolutely no reason why the people couldn’t make the connection between Democratic leadership and the domestic terrorism spreading across this country. Still, many don’t see it. We do everything we can to make them see the truth.
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.
