The hardest part about being an authoritarian Democratic politician in a country that values freedom is justifying actions that make no sense and often contradict with facts. In the case of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, she has been caught on multiple occasions displaying her hypocrisy like an accessory to her penchant for outright lying.
It should be getting more challenging for these authoritarians to continue their futile efforts to “slow the spread” of COVID-19, an endeavor that was supposed to last 15 days but has continued in perpetuity to some degree since March. But they have mainstream media heavily in their narrative corner and Republican lawmakers have done very little to fight back. Only a handful have spoken out about the lockdowns despite an outcry from their conservative base.
At the heart of the assertions made by authoritarians and the doctors who support them is that face masks must be worn at all times in public. This has been an area of contention with many doctors coming forward and decrying the efficacy of the practice. Unfortunately, doctors who oppose the practice are ignored by mainstream media and even silenced by Big Tech companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google.
During a softball session of questions and answers with the local FOX affiliate, the Governor was asked about liberties. It was clearly a challenging topic for her as her answer seemed to contradict pretty much everything she’s said in the past. Moreover, she was somehow able to disprove her one premise for engaging in one of the most draconian series of lockdown orders the nation has seen.
FOX 2 asked, “Aren’t people’s civil liberties being violated right now?”
“I think that COVID-19 threatens everyone’s civil liberties,” Whitmer said. “It threatens our ability to live and to live in a healthy way. I am mourning a very dear friend of mine to COVID-19 and he died last week. He wore masks and took it very seriously and he still got it and it killed him. That is why this moment is so different than usual. That is why we, as a nation, need to come together against our mutual enemy, this virus.”
It’s unfortunate when anyone dies from the disease or, as appears to be more and more common, from other medical circumstances while also being positive for the coronavirus. But months of ubiquitous mask-wearing and economy-crushing lockdowns have not seen a reduction in cases or deaths. Nevertheless, the narrative for maintaining control of a flaccid citizenry is more important to the authoritarians than the facts or science.
As long as people like Gretchen Whitmer are calling the shots unabated, we will continue to suffer through ineffective lockdowns and draconian face mask orders. It’s long past time for the people to stand up and say “no more!”
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.
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.
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
