Washington, DC, hates us. They literally hate all of us useful idiots who are only here to fund their pet projects and advance the personal agendas of those in the swamp. And sadly, the vast majority of Americans have no idea. They will not read the 6000-page bill released by Congress. They won’t read a single word of it. All they’ll do is wait for their $600 checks and complain that they need more.
The text of the COVID-19 “relief” bill is loaded with gigatons of pork that Americans know nothing about. Moreover, it’s so significant, so insulting, that mainstream media and Big Tech are doing as they normally do: Suppressing the truth. No major outlets are reporting on over a billion dollars going to a variety of programs in Sudan, Nepal, Burma, or Cambodia. There’s not a mention of Egypt alone receiving over a billion dollars. And nobody’s asking questions about the $1.4 billion set aside for something called the “Asia Reassurance Initiative Act.”
Why is an American stimulus Bill giving $700,000,000 to Sudan and another $1.3 Billion to foreign military in Egypt, and $453,000,000 to the Ukraine? pic.twitter.com/NgYfWcZ4xd

Meanwhile, Americans are receiving $600 checks and are being told to appreciate it. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said the amount was “significant” even after claiming $1000 bonuses given to workers following President Trump’s tax reform were just “crumbs.” Their hypocrisy knows no bounds, and it isn’t just the Democrats. Republicans are giving each other high-fives for getting the number down to $600 while working in their own pork to make the deal worthwhile for their special interests.
Democrats send $600 in "stimulus" to you but they're sending:
$130 million to Nepal
$135 million to Burma
$85.5 million to Cambodia
$700 million to Sudan
$1.4 BILLION to something called the "Asia Reassurance Initiative Act"
What an absolute disgrace.

Lest we forget, everyone on Capitol Hill has continued receiving their massive salaries even when they aren’t working. Meanwhile, the draconian restrictions imposed by dictators at city and state levels have caused mass destitution, rising suicide numbers, and unprecedented drug overdoses. The economy is a tattered parody of what it was just a year ago, but “economic indicators” have kept analysts from calling it a depression. Looking around at the long lines for food banks, we are clearly in the midst of a depression.
There should not be any foreign aid given to any country, ever, but especially not in a COVID relief bill that's supposed to be helping Americans

This is our money, folks. I’m not going to start lecturing anyone on the backwards nature of the federal tax system or the horrid way our money is used against us, literally. That’s for another time. But even those who do not study economic theory can plainly see the direct insult of doling out $600 to people who have been forced out of their jobs for months, people who have become or are on the verge of becoming reluctant members of the welfare state. We are being forced into a state of dependency over a disease that has a higher recovery rate for people under the age of 40 than influenza.
This joke of a COVID relief bill gives $10 million for “gender programs” in Pakistan…

And we’re supposed to sit back and accept it. Unfortunately, that’s actually what’s happening. The outrage that should be compelling millions to march on their state capitals and demand our freedoms back has been replaced for the most part by passive acceptance while we stay at home watching Netflix. It’s a disgusting portrait of America that I never thought I’d see in my lifetime. Where is the courage? Where is the patriotism? When did American Exceptionalism get replaced by complacency and complicity?
President Trump should send the bill back to DC and demand all pork be stripped from it immediately. And if they don’t, then they’ll have to override his veto. Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell are snakes wallowing in their swamp.
COVID-19 lockdowns are taking 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 resurgence of lockdowns 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 $17,300 to stay afloat through March when we hope the economy will be more open, 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. In November, 2020, we hit 1.2 million visitors.
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.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
