We’ve been involved in a war in Afghanistan for longer than some voters have been alive. The predicate for the war was questionable and our continued presence there is indefensible. But unlike his two predecessors, President Trump has been drawing back our troops and attempting to keep them from harm’s way in a fight that simply doesn’t concern American interests. Nevertheless, the war hawks continue to beat their drums.
As Congressman Thomas Massie pointed out on Twitter this week, the effects of President Trump’s stance on having our military involved in Afghanistan and throughout the Middle East has had tangible results. Casualties are down dramatically.
Why won’t the press report this? US Military casualties in the war in Afghanistan:
One more US casualty in this war is one too many. Thank you @realDonaldTrump for winding this war down.

It’s ironic that the president who won the Nobel Peace Prize had 28 times more U.S. military casualties in Afghanistan under his watch than President Trump. But mainstream media won’t report on that. Thank you, Thomas Massie, for spreading 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.
