Judge Merrick Garland, in a Senate hearing regarding Joe Biden’s nomination that he be the new U.S. attorney general, dropped a grenade into the quiet surroundings. He cited the “Capitol bombing” as something he’ll look into.

Responding to a question, he said, “I think the first thing I should do as part of my briefing on the Capitol Bombing are briefings with Director Wray as to where he sees the biggest threat…”
Which triggered social media to a series of statements that all were similar.
Wait…the Capitol was Bombed?…when?

The comments included:
- “Can anyone tell me what I missed?”
- “A bombing??”
- “When exactly did that happen?”
A commentary at Twitchy expressed equal astonishment.
“We like to think we’re pretty in-tune with what’s going on, but we must admit that the recent Capitol Bombing escaped our attention. … Apparently there was a Capitol ‘Bombing’ on Jan. 6th now too,” said the Conservative Daily.
Someone else suggested a “fact-check.”
While there were hundreds of people who rioted at the Capitol last month, the only bombs that were found were unexploded pipe bombs at nearby offices for Democrats and Republicans.
There was vandalism in the Capitol, and five people died. One woman was shot and killed by police and three other Trump supporters apparently died of health complications of some sort. A police officer died, and legacy media immediately claimed he had been hit in the head with a thrown fire extinguisher.
Authorities later discounted that report, although they have declined to release the cause of death for the officer.
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.
