At last night’s Vice Presidential Debate, Senator Kamala Harris scolded Vice President Mike Pence over the administration’s decision to nominate a Supreme Court Justice less than two months before the election. She invoked Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, who declined to nominate a replacement for Chief Justice Roger Taney who died 27-days before the 1864 election.
According to Harris:
“Abraham Lincoln’s party was in charge, not only of the White House, but the Senate, but Honest Abe said it’s not the right thing to do. The American people deserve to make the decision about who will be the next president in the United States. And then that person can select who will serve for a lifetime and the highest court of our land,” Harris explained. “And so Joe and I are very clear, the American people are voting right now. And it should be their decision about who will serve on this most important body for a lifetime.”
She was correct that Lincoln held the nomination. She is absolutely wrong on the reason why. He did so because it was politically expedient for him to do so. By not nominating anyone, he was able to draw support from those in the various camps of people wanting a particular person to be nominated. In fact, many of them vied for Lincoln’s favor by touting how much they were campaigning on his behalf.

He did it to help him win reelection, not for whatever BS Kamala Harris spewed last night. https://t.co/UJUWPq5FJU

If President Lincoln had made a pick, he would have instantly lost support from some of the camps. By keeping everyone on the hook, they held onto hope that they’re guy would fill the seat. Some have argued that if President Lincoln had made a selection, he would not have won reelection
The Biden campaign continues to revamp their perceptions of history to attack President Trump. From Charlottesville to COVID-19 responses and now to Abraham Lincoln, their deceit is infecting this nation.
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.
