If Joe Biden is allowed to steal the election, Jen Psaki will be his press secretary. After years of attacking Republicans, conservatives, and pretty much anyone who isn’t an avowed Marxist, Psaki has been scrubbing her social media of things that would come back to haunt her in her new hypothetical role.
But one important post didn’t get scrubbed all the way as a resurfaced photo from 2014 shows her smiling with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova while wearing a pink ushanka (furry Russian cap) that had the traditional communist hammer and sickle logo on it.

Mainstream media sprung into action to cover it up. First, they tried to debunk it in hopes that it was fake. When that proved to be difficult since it is authentic, they went for the good ol’ fashioned defense of communist symbolism adorned by American bureaucrats. This defense, invoked by USA Today in a hilariously biased “fact check,” declared that her wearing of the Marxist apparel was “missing context.”
Let’s set aside the fact that there is no reason for any American to wear the Russian symbol for oppression and anti-American ideologies. Even IN CONTEXT it’s not defensible. USA Today and everyone else in mainstream media has spent four years trying to tie President Trump’s campaign and administration to Russia with less evidence than a hat. Now, they’re defending communist symbolism. As Donald Trump Jr. noted, why in the world would they do a fact-check on something that is unambiguously true?
Why are you fat checking this? No one’s making a claim just showing her wearing a commie hat… THATS A FACT!!!
If the media stopped running cover for Democrats as their primary mission maybe they have some credibility left. https://t.co/DtcKwkAev9

With 100% certainty, we know that if Kayleigh McEnany was the subject of this image, mainstream media would present it as clear proof of Russian collusion. But for Jen Psaki, they declared there’s nothing to see here.
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.
