The “elites.” The “establishment.” The “swamp.” Whatever you’d like to call the power brokers at the top of various industries and institutions, one thing has become more clear in the past few years. They’re being exposed. After decades, perhaps centuries of lies and control, the truth is coming out as common folks are infiltrating their ranks and disrupting their status quo.
Case-in-point: Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. I had the privilege of interviewing her less than two months before the 2020 election and one thing stood out. She’s a real person. She isn’t a lifetime politician who has lived off taxpayer-funded salaries her entire adult life. She didn’t work her way up through the political ranks or pander to kingmakers. She ran a business, raised a family, went to church, and served her community from the private sector. But when it became clear to her that the president she supported was not getting the help he needed on Capitol Hill, even from his own party, she decided to stand up and participate.
Now, The Swamp has made her their number one target. And as far as we can tell from public postings and interviews, she’s enjoying every bit of it. Why? Because since she’s lived her life as a private citizen, she is not beholden to the political class that runs Washington DC, mainstream media, or Big Tech. She’s beholden to the people who elected her, just like the last number one target of The Swamp.
The DC Swamp and the Fake News Media are attacking me because I am not one of them.
I am one of you.
And they hate me for it.

It isn’t just people like Marjorie Taylor Greene who are taking on the elites. We’ve seen it happen on Wall Street over the last month as amateur investors have “manipulated the market” to boost their own net worth while taking down some hedge fund juggernauts. These juggernauts do not like this version of “market manipulation” even though they make their livings by manipulating the markets every day. But they only approve of THEIR manipulations and they’re going to fight back. They’ve even allegedly employed the services of Hollywood to promote their message.
More Americans are finally waking up to the double-standard that has existed since before any of us were born. We see the people who have armed security guards protecting them 24-7 calling for gun control to prevent the common people from defending ourselves. We see these same people calling for Marxist economic principles to come into play as long as their own fortunes are protected. We watch mainstream media spew lies by calling other people liars. We see Hollywood pretending to take the moral high road while most of them live depraved lifestyles.
This article could quickly turn into a laundry list of hypocrisy present in nearly every facet of life as the “elites” do everything they can to keep the playing field as uneven as possible. All the while, the left is pushing for equity of results while conservatives push for equality of opportunity. But with every push back from the “elites” it is made clear that they believe some people are more equal than others.
In the end, what they really want to see is the common people living in an equality of destitution, misery, and dependency. They may deny this publicly and some are even deluded to not realize that’s what they’re promoting, but the type of Marxist thinking that’s pervasive among the “elites” invariably ends with oppression against the common people.
Marjorie Taylor Greene is fighting the status quo, and that makes her the enemy of The Swamp. It makes her the enemy of the “elites.” She’s antiestablishment and therefore a threat to the establishment. Just like President Trump.
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.
