Leftists and mainstream media hate Dr. Scott Atlas. They hate that he has the President’s ear and they hate that he’s not calling for everyone to cower in fear of a “pandemic” with a 99.996% recovery rate. That’s why it’s not surprising they clutched their pearls harder than they have in weeks when he posted a Tweet in response to Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s newest lockdown announcement.

He was calling on people to stand up and engage in good old fashioned non-compliance. Sprinkle in some peaceful protests and some much needed conservative votes and you can easily see what Dr. Atlas was saying when he called on people to “rise up.”
Of course, the left took it as a call for attacks against the Governor. As an alleged potential victim of an insane scheme by militia members to kidnap her, the left was particularly sensitive to mentioning her in the same sentence as “rise up.” They’ve been attacking him ever since, making his name trend on Twitter and prompting unhinged news articles claiming he’s starting an armed insurrection against the government of Michigan.
None of it’s true. As he noted in a subsequent Tweet, he sees state governments, including the leftist government of Whitmer, as the root cause of the lockdown mandates that have crippled not only the nation but most of the world. He invoked federalism, as he rightly should, to point people in the right direction to express their discontent with government. This is on the states, first and foremost.
Just to clarify the obvious.
US pandemic policy is:
Federally supported (massive resources, OWS, personnel, beds, logistics);
State managed; &
Want more mandates & lockdown? Contact your governor. That's state controlled. Not federal. Period.#Federalism

We won’t post the attacks from social or mainstream media against Dr. Atlas. Frankly, they’re generally too ludicrous to deserve an ounce of attention. But since he was getting a flood of notifications calling him a militia leader, he did reply to the criticism.
Hey. I NEVER was talking at all about violence. People vote, people peacefully protest. NEVER would I endorse or incite violence. NEVER!! https://t.co/LljvwMvjDV

The left did as it is wont to do by going after one of the few sane medical voices who have the President’s ear. But as Dr. Atlas noted, it’s time for the people to have their voices heard. These draconian lockdowns must end now.
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.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our brand new GiveSendGo page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
