Prior to the so-called “insurrection” at the Capitol on November 6, special panic buttons were “ripped out” of Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley’s office. According to staffers, the rioters had not entered the office and nobody had been there who could have taken them out, so they must have been removed the early morning of January 6th or earlier.
According to the NY Post:
When rioters stormed the US Capitol last week, Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s staffers discovered that panic buttons in the Massachusetts Democrat’s office had been torn out before the mob overran the building, according to a report.
“Every panic button in my office had been torn out — the whole unit,” Sarah Groh, Pressley’s chief of staff, told The Boston Globe.
Pressley — who has alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that puts her in the high-risk category for COVID-19 — is among the four Democratic pols in “The Squad,” which has incurred the wrath of President Trump and his supporters.
“I was deeply concerned,” Groh told the Globe about going to the Capitol on Jan. 6. “It felt like the heat was being turned up in terms of the rhetoric and Trump’s aims to incite violence.”
During the siege, staffers in Pressley’s office barricaded the entrance with furniture and water jugs that had piled up during the pandemic. Groh pulled out gas masks and looked for the special panic buttons in the office, but realized they had been removed.
Some Trump-supporters and many unaffiliated conspiracy theorists have combed through video and circumstantial evidence to highlight the possibility of the riots being a “false flag” event intended to stir up negative sentiment for President Trump. We documented earlier this week how mainstream media had been doctoring videos to make it seem like the President stirred his supporters into attacking the Capitol.
Now, the President has been impeached by Congress for a second time over the event. “Fact-checkers” have attempted to debunk claims that Antifa and others incited the riots that sent hundreds of Trump supporters into the Capitol Building. But it seems more and more likely that the debunking attempts were premature as evidence continues to mount supporting a false flag event.
It could just be a coincidence that highly secure panic buttons specific to Ayanna Pressley’s office were all removed right before the Capitol riots. Then again, this could mean those claiming “false flag” are onto something.
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.
