For the last week, I’ve been telling people on my shows that I was annoyed by the Pennsylvania case hitting the Supreme Court first. It was the weakest case that I’ve seen, in my non-attorney opinion, but in being right about it I may have been proven very wrong.
I assumed it would get kicked over timing, not merits. The merits of the case were strong but there’s no reason it should have been brought up after the election. Some have countered that you can’t file a complaint until the crime is committed, but this particular piece of legislation was constitutionally flawed from the start. There was no need to wait for the election to declare it unconstitutional.
Now, I’ve been going down a different path. It seems I may have been right for the wrong reasons. It’s conspicuous that the emergency injunction request was kicked without accompanying comments from SCOTUS. They justify pretty much everything they rule for or against, so the fact they simply said no is interesting. That usually only happens when they have a future ruling possible that they do not want prejudiced by previous judgments. In other words, if you don’t want your words to come back to bite you, say nothing.
Enter the Texas case. It’s a doozy. It essentially says the same thing, but from a national perspective that includes three other states. That’s big. Is it possible that the Supreme Court, having seen the upcoming case already docketed for Texas, chose to push the Pennsylvania case aside for the larger case to come forward? Yes, that seems very possible. I’m not saying that’s what happened, but it could make a whole lot of sense, as I detailed in the latest episode of NOQ Report.
Whether the Pennsylvania injunction relief was denied to make room for the Texas case or not, many Trump supporters turn to the Supreme Court to get it right this time around. We wait with bated breath.
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.
