Advisors to the President were against his pushback on the stimulus bill Congress sent him Tuesday as well as the video he delivered to America detailing what he wanted instead. He also panned requests to talk about it that night from Republican leadership, according to reporting by One America News reporter Jack Posobiec.
NEW: Some White House advisors tried to stop Trump from making the $2000 video. He vetoed them. GOP leadership wanted to talk tonight afterward, but the President said there was nothing more to talk about.

It would make sense that some advisors would push back knowing the adherence to The Swamp that is present in his administration. Despite his best efforts to fill the White House with loyalists, he has learned for the last four years that snakes worked their way in more often than not. The original bill, which passed by overwhelming majorities in both chambers, was loaded with pork that included several billion dollars in foreign aid and investments.
Several Republican lawmakers took to Twitter after the President’s speech to implore him to reconsider, but it’s almost certain he will not budge on his demands. Ironically, some of those on Capitol Hill who supported his calls for amendments were not among his most prolific supporters. Even Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar called for a “clean” $2000 per individual bill with other considerations sent separately.
The goal of the bill, at least as it was portrayed by members of Capitol Hill, was to give much-needed economic stimulus to individuals and small businesses who have been financially decimated by COVID-19 lockdowns. As a new and more draconian round of lockdowns hits many areas across the country, the notion of receiving $600 per person while millions or even billions of tax dollars were distributed to congressional pet projects was not popular.
For complete transparency, I oppose the stimulus plan altogether. Instead of getting more people dependent on government over a disease with such a high recovery rate, they should just open up the economy and let people get back to work. Problem solved. But if we must have a stimulus, it needs to be a clean one.
Instead of pushing back on the President, it would behoove his advisors and Republican lawmakers to get on board with his stimulus plan. This is what populism looks like, and it will be appreciated widely by the people.
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.
