Anyone who has ever had to keep a two-year-old still for an extended period of time likely knows how challenging long flights can be. But there’s a new wrinkle to the travel-with-children dilemma thanks to the draconian practices put in place by governments and private businesses who want us all living in fear of COVID-19.
United Airlines removed a young family from a flight because they couldn’t get their two-year-old daughter to wear a face mask. There was no indication of illness and the father covered her mouth manually with a cloth, but that didn’t stop the flight crew from booting them from the plane. It was all recorded by a very distraught mother.

Adding insult to injury, United sent their luggage and their daughter’s car seat to New York without them. Oh, and they’re banned for life from traveling with United Airlines after being Silver Premier Members. The insanity that is COVID-19 lockdowns and hysteria has gone full ludicrous speed in America today.
Lest we forget the facts, COVID-19 has a 99.5% recovery rate, and the only reason they number is that low is because it includes the elderly who are much more susceptible to the disease. Moreover, the disease has an inverse spread rate. In other words, the younger someone is, the less likely they are to both contract the disease or spread it once they have it.
Radical progressives, mainstream media, and even some in the middle and on the right have embraced the insanity completely. Whether it’s because they legitimately fear the disease or if they’re playing towards an agenda is irrelevant. All who participate in this degree of unhinged terror are complicit in the coming mandates that will likely include vaccine requirements for certain activities such as air travel. They want to inflict as much pain as possible even in situations like this where it makes absolutely no sense.
We’ve entered a new world in which coronavirus hysteria supersedes all logic and human decency. The question is whether or not we will return to sanity. If too many people continue to comply, today’s abnormalities are here to stay.
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.
