It would have been better for the owner of Pineapple Hill Saloon & Grill if Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti had come by and slapped her in the face. At least that would have caused temporary pain instead of the figurative slap in the face she received from the Mayor instead.
Her business has been financially ravaged by the coronavirus lockdowns. They’ve done everything they can to stay afloat, including making massive accommodations for outside dining with tables placed seven feet apart. Yet the latest round of “close everything” from both the Mayor and Governor Gavin Newsom have brought them and thousands of other businesses in Los Angeles to the point of desperation. Then, she saw this…

“Mayor Garcetti and Gavin Newsom is responsible for every single person who doesn’t have unemployment, that does not have a job, and all the businesses that are going under, and we need your help,” she said. “We need somebody to do something about this.”
They are holding a non-partisan rally to address the issue on Saturday.
Corporate interests and crony capitalism are inherent in California’s Democrat Party. Their ties to Big Labor and dependency on Hollywood have compelled them to make exceptions for those who do not need assistance while spitting in the faces of small business owners and the majority of California residents. This is just another example of their hypocrisy at play.
In the eyes of authoritarians, there are certain professions that are “essential” while those of us who are trying to take care of our families and serve our communities are not. Ironically, Garcetti Tweeted out his appreciation for the “essential” people earlier today even as his crew set up shop for Hollywood elites.
No words can fully express our gratitude for our essential workers — the unsung heroes keeping our city running and Angelenos safe.

Her anger is righteous. The people will rise up against these tyrants. These tyrants will bend over backwards to make sure the politicians and stars they love to rub elbows with get to live and work normally but they’re happy to take everything from you. Truly evil people. https://t.co/b8FoPFJXwS

.@MayorOfLA and @GavinNewsom, these people and their heartbreaking stories will be your legacies. While you dine at private restaurants and live above your own oppressive laws, your constituents are starving and struggling. Get back to work FOR THEM (not corporations), or resign. https://t.co/JXEnc9vquI

Because they are cowards who prove they despise the will of the people by flaunting their hypocrisy over giggles and fancy dinners.
They are laughing at us, California. https://t.co/mjn288U7Vz

Hard working Californians are being figuratively spat on by Eric Garcetti and Gavin Newsom. All of them. Anyone who has worked hard to build a life for themselves is insignificant to these tyrants.
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.
