Janet Yellen has been confirmed as the next Treasury secretary, after a simple majority of senators voted to confirm her. She is the first US Treasury secretary and is the former Fed chair, which is appropriate in a time when the Fed and Treasury are now inexorably linked as part of helicopter money which requires the constant cooperation of the debt printing and debt monetizing branches of universal basic income enabling government, which is where we find ourselves right now (yes, it’s a joke).

In addition to attempting to taper the biggest ponzi scheme in history by hiking interest rates during her tenure – a process which ended catastrophically in 2018, Janet Yellen is best known for her June 2017 comment: “I Don’t See a Financial Crisis Occurring In Our Lifetimes.”
Two and a half years later, the world suffered the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression. Which of course was great news for all those who saw through her lies and stacked up on non-printable assets such as this one…
… which is currently the best investment of the 21st century.
With her ascent to the Treasury Secretary post, which is also the top regulator of all US banks and financial companies, spending on Yellen speeches in the 2018-2020 period has just become the best return on investment for the dozens of firms (and especially Citadel) which paid Yellen $7.3 million in the past two years, and to whom the new Treasury Secretary now owes a “favor.”
And while these firms can expect preferential treatment during the next crisis, everyone else gets a souvenir too: dollar bills bearing Yellen’s signature
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.
