Millions of unemployed Americans will receive less money as a result of the President not signing the spending bill Congress sent to him. But as mainstream media, everyone on the left, and many on the right put this squarely on the President’s shoulders, they’re all avoiding the biggest point. The spending bill was a huge dud for the American people and a boon for foreign interests.
Nevertheless, the masses will likely buy into the false narrative that President Trump is to blame. That point is being hammered by every news network. Even right-leaning Real America’s Voice republished an article from VOANews that abdicates responsibility from Congress and pretends like the debacle of a spending bill must be signed or people will suffer.
Congress controls America’s purse strings. Unemployment benefits fall directly on them, and when the President doesn’t sign a massive bill that includes those benefits, it’s incumbent on Congress to act. They could easily separate out benefits and even the much-lauded “stimulus” checks while they debate the other less pressing issues. Instead, they’re trying to shove it all down American taxpayers’ throats and blaming the President for their failures.
Let this be a lesson in bad governance. It’s standard operating procedure for The Swamp to sneak in their pet projects and lobbyist pork behind crucial economic measures. And when anyone, such as the President, balks at their devious intentions, they explode with unrighteous outrage because their feet are being held to the fire.
If they sent President Trump a standalone bill to extend higher unemployment benefits, he would sign it in a heartbeat. Instead, they are holding Americans’ paychecks hostage because they’re getting cover from mainstream media.
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.
