With less than two days left in President Trump’s term, barring a miracle, many have been calling for him to pardon WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Tucker Carlson threw his perspective into the mix on the eve of what is expected to a slew of pardons coming from the President.
Actress Pamela Anderson also came on the show to make a similar plea:

"For humiliating both our elected leaders and the media class, Julian Assange's life has been destroyed."

Assange has been locked up in London for nearly a decade, first at the Ecuador Embassy and now in actual jail. His crime, according to Carlson, was not espionage. He didn’t hack the U.S. military servers that revealed information they did not want getting out to the public. He reported on them. This, more than anything else, is why Carlson and many others have championed for the President to pardon Assange.
If it’s going to happen, it will be tomorrow. The chance of status quo Joe Biden doing anything to benefit Assange is nil. Unless a miracle happens to keep President Trump in office longer, the final pardons will be on Tuesday.
Some consider Julian Assange a hero. Others say he’s a criminal. But anyone who values freedom of speech and wants a free and protected press should acknowledge that his “crimes” are not as they’ve been portrayed.
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.
