Payment processor Stripe on Friday banned the immigration restrictionist website VDARE from accepting credit card payments. The move came just about one week after the company announced a new partnership with Goldman Sachs.

Red Ice revealed they were banned from Stripe as well and questioned whether the decision was related to their new partnership:
Stripe is now partnering with the 'great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity' GOLDMAN SACHS.
This is the reasons why they banned multiple sites & alternative media recently @redicetv included.
It was part of the "deal". Communists ❤️Goldmanhttps://t.co/4GCYPQ9zy8

All the recent unjust bans from @stripe (us included) make sense now. They sold their soul to the devil for more money. Bankers call the shots. They have all the power but eventually their wicked deeds will catch up to them. https://t.co/fsrl59mko7

VDARE founder Peter Brimelow said Stripe management “resisted” banning them “for a long while” but there now appears to be “a widespread purge going on.”
With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Leftists discussing who should get credit for getting our payment processor to ban us. Apparently management resisted for a long while. But we hear there's a widespread purge going onhttps://t.co/iRT3evKJQW

Over the past several years, an ever-expanding list of political dissidents and Christian pastors have had both their PayPal accounts and their bank accounts closed due to their political and religious views.
In 2015, Americans could pretty much say whatever they wanted on social media sites without facing much censorship — yet today the majority of Americans could be banned from YouTube for openly expressing their political views.
Judging by Big Tech’s rapidly expanding definition of “hate speech” and “misinformation,” it may not be long until most everyday Americans face similar threats of “debanking.”
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.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
