Yes, Democrats are set to impeach President Donald Trump again, and like last time, they are inventing a reason why. Before, Democrats claimed Trump committed “high crimes and misdemeanors” when he allegedly demanded a “quid pro quo” from the Ukrainian president — specifically, that he linked U.S. military aid to a pledge from the Ukrainian leader that he would investigate Joe and Hunter Biden.

Trump never did make such a demand. On the other hand, there is video of Joe Biden bragging at an event in 2018 sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations that he did demand a quid pro quo while he was vice president — namely, that then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko had to fire the country’s top prosecutor who was investigating a company where Hunter Biden was raking in big bucks or Daddy Joe would not release a $1 billion loan.
Now, Democrats are falsely claiming that President Trump incited some of his supporters to commit an act of “insurrection” by attacking the Capitol Building last week.
Again, Trump never asked anyone to do that.
In fact, here is what Trump said during a speech to about 100,000 of his closest friends in Washington, D.C. Jan. 6:
We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. Today we will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections, but whether or not they stand strong for our country, our country. Our country has been under siege for a long time, far longer than this four-year period.
How does “peacefully and patriotically” get transformed into “inciting an insurrection?” And beyond that, why is it that Antifa and Black Lives Matter members “protest” and “demonstrate,” but only Trump supporters “riot” and “rebel?”
“I call on President Trump to go on national television now to fulfill his oath and defend the Constitution by demanding an end to this siege,” Biden tweeted as the Capitol was rushed.

The was no ‘siege,’ however. The rioters left far more peaceably than they arrived.
He added: “Let me be very clear: the scenes of chaos at the Capitol do not represent who we are. What we are seeing is a small number of extremists dedicated to lawlessness. This is not dissent, it’s disorder. It borders on sedition, and it must end. Now.”
Got it? Rioting is illegal, yes, and it should be punished. But only Trump’s supporters are ‘seditious’ when they inundate a government building. When Antifa thugs were literally besieging a federal courthouse in Portland over the summer, Biden said nothing and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called the federal agents protecting the courthouse “storm troopers,” a reference to Nazi Germany.
In fact, she doubled down on it. But hey, white leftists besieging government buildings, to a Democrat, isn’t “sedition.” It’s ‘lawful protesting protected by the First Amendment.’
Meanwhile, it wasn’t just Democrats who purposely mischaracterized the Capitol Building breach; Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called it a “failed insurrection” — though no one brought weapons and the only person killed by gunshot was a Trump supporter, Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt.
Biden would also go on to describe the riotous actions as “not protest, it’s insurrection.”
These people are professional gaslighters. More than that, they are gargantuan hypocrites. And liars.
While American cities burned and real seditionists on the left established “autonomous zones” last year, in the name of ‘social and racial justice,’ they were condoned by Democrats and celebrated, even encouraged.
How dare they now insist that what happened last week was anything more than a similar riotous behavior. And how dare they screw over the Constitution in another attempt to impeach our president.

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.
