There is a lot of talk nowadays about conservatives and Trump-supporters forming a new political party. Angst towards the Republican Party is at an all-time high as the GOP Establishment attempts to distance itself from President Trump while retaining his base. This isn’t going to work. They overplayed their hand and had delusions of grandeur regarding their own popularity.
Many are calling it the “Patriot Party.” I like that. I love the idea of breaking away. I support it fully. But I also have a word of caution. There’s no reason to get too excited about it without President Trump leading it. If he does, it will succeed. It will become a new favorite launching point for other candidates. Many Republicans will join. I would expect some lawmakers to make the switch as well.
Without Trump, it still needs to happen, if only for the future. I talked about a lot of this in the latest episode of NOQ Report, but one thing I didn’t mention was the fact that even with Trump in the White House, the GOP has been leaning towards the middle. This has been a gradual shift since President Reagan was in the Oval Office.
It’s happening for two reasons. First, that’s where the Republican Establishment wants to be. They love the murky middle. Second, the Democrats are lurching so far and so fast to the left that many Republicans think it’s practical to hover in the middle as a common sense alternative to Independents. That strategy has and always will fail.
There will be plenty of passion to drive a new party if Trump chooses to lead it. He could do that, or he could take on Fox News and fill the void for conservatives to have a proper news channel. I love One America News and I like Newsmax, but they don’t have the gravity that a TrumpTV Network would have. Ideally, he would do both. That would be epic.
In today’s episode, I also gave a quick update on writ of quo warranto. I had a nice conversation with Leo Donofrio about it yesterday and I’m preparing questions for him so we can help get the information in front of the right people. Lord willing, we will be successful.
A new party should definitely move forward as the GOP continues in its feckless, milquetoast ways. But its immediate success is contingent on President Trump taking the helm. Otherwise, it’s a long-term play at best.
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.
