There have been changing attitudes on both sides of the political aisle ever since several states started jumping on the Texas lawsuit bandwagon. Trump supporters have seemed to be in higher spirits after a couple of weeks of feeling like this election was slipping away from them. Bidden supporters have become one of two things: Either more aggressive with their attacks or suddenly reserved and eerily quiet.
A friend noticed it on Reddit yesterday. He is generally apolitical came to me and asked, “Is this Texas thing real? I’m seeing concern on Reddit that I didn’t see until today.”
The social news site is generally left-leaning. Or, to be more specific, the r/politics subreddit is dominated by Democrats and radical progressives. And what my friend saw as enthusiastic celebration for weeks by leftists before had been replaced by signs of concern. The source of it, he said, wasn’t that Texas had filed a lawsuit but that several states had gotten behind it. That has the left on Reddit, who pride themselves for being more “thoughtful” than average Democrats, legitimately concerned.
Trump supporters can be hopeful and Biden supporters can be worried all day about the Texas lawsuit as far as I’m concerned. This SHOULD be getting the spotlight, not just because it has merits (the Pennsylvania lawsuit dismissed Tuesday had merits) but because it’s so widespread. And as long as it’s getting the spotlight, other lawsuits can proceed unimpeded. With fewer distractions for Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, Lin Wood, Sidney Powell, and binders full of other attorneys working to bring the proper election results to light, the Texas lawsuit should help them move forward.
There’s still the issue of whether or not the Supreme Court is willing to get involved. Most say they do not. I tend to agree. But as of the latest episode of NOQ Report, I counted 19 states involved. As Ted Noel noted in an article this morning:
“SCOTUS does not wish to solve political issues. If they rule that Trump won the election, that would be seen widely as a political decision. But if SCOTUS can rule in a way that remedies the legal injury but without directly deciding the election, it can plausibly be seen as calling balls and strikes, not deciding the final score. Texas points to this escape clause in 3 U.S. Code § 2.”
“Whenever any State has held an election for the purpose of choosing electors, and has failed to make a choice on the day prescribed by law, the electors may be appointed on a subsequent day in such a manner as the legislature of such State may direct.”
The Texas case has strong merits and takes pressure away from those working other cases. But most importantly, it has the backing of many other states, individuals, and organizations. As silver bullets go, this one is especially shiny.
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.
