What has happened to New York City? Perhaps a better question is what has happened to the New York City Police Department. And, of course, to understand the underlying problem, we have to ask why Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo continue to hamper law enforcement’s efforts to stop crime and arrest domestic terrorists.
An ugly scene unfolded last week when “protesters” heading to the Brooklyn Bridge were confronted by a man they labeled as a “white supremacist.” He can be seen in the video from Freedomnews.tv lambasting some of them for their “cosplay” protests before finding himself face-to-face with a larger group and a very large man. Their argument turned brutal when they tried to force him to move through a “lane” the had created for him. As they grabbed him and “escorted” him out, they attacked him. At least six Black Lives Matter and Antifa supporters grabbed and punched the man.
But what makes it all much worse is the fact that a large contingent of New York’s Finest was just a few yards away watching it unfold. The camera angle didn’t capture them until after the man was beaten. He walked over to the street from the sidewalk where he was assaulted where the camera showed the police officers conspicuously not getting involved. The man yelled at them for their lack of assistance and unwillingness to enforce the law, even as it was being broken in front of them.
Incidents like these demonstrate the sad fact that in many cities, including Democrat-run NYC, police allow laws to be broken right in front of them. It’s mostly not they’re fault. They’re just following orders from feckless city leadership.
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.
