Following the Biden administration’s decision to bomb Syria yesterday, social media turned on Democrats who have complained in the past about President Trump’s airstrikes. Conveniently, most have willfully forgotten their old Tweets, but thankfully Senator Rand Paul is here to remind them.
“I condemn meddling in Syria’s civil war. I also condemn attacking a sovereign nation without authority,” he Tweeted. “What authority does @POTUS have to strike Syria? Perhaps someone should ask his @PressSec today?”
Paul was referencing a 2018 Tweet from Psaki who unwisely questioned presidential authority on the matter. “Also what is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country,” she Tweeted
I condemn meddling in Syria’s civil war. I also condemn attacking a sovereign nation without authority.
What authority does @POTUS have to strike Syria?

To be fair, it doesn’t take much to destroy Joe Biden. In barely over a month, his disastrous policies have come back to bite him (and America) on multiple occasions. As for the White House Press Secretary, she’s often too busy trying to figure out what in the world is going on to worry about what a United States Senator thinks of her.
Biden’s hypocrisy is even more on display. Just over a year ago while in a heated battle for the Democratic nomination for president, Biden Tweeted his supposed perspectives on Middle East wars and using the military.
As President, I will use military power responsibly and as a last resort. We will not go back to forever wars in the Middle East. #DemDebate

Joe Biden said a year ago that military power in the Middle East was a “last resort.” Did his administration already run out of other ideas mere weeks after taking office? A trigger-happy Biden bodes ill for America and the world.
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.
