Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg is a liar. He’s a conman. He’s everything about the Biden administration that we despise (well, other than their radical progressive policies and utter hatred for this nation that they’re supposed to serve). The latest incident of failed virtue signaling epitomizes the failures DC Democrats are experiencing as they try to keep up with the “woke” crowd.
Buttigieg was caught on video Thursday unloading a bike from an SUV just moments before riding the bike a short distance to his destination. What makes it worse than the obvious optics failure is that he wasn’t going very far to begin with; any reasonably healthy man of his age could have easily ridden the bicycle all the way. But not Buttigieg. Not DC Democrats.
Pete Buttigieg's dog and pony show.
Use an armored Suburban to bring a bike within a short distance of the destination. Unload it and ride in with a security detail in tow, pretending to save energy. 🙄 pic.twitter.com/Pxynakrl59

The effort it took to try to stage Buttigieg’s commitment to the environment is comical. The gas-guzzling SUV that carried his precious bicycle to its staging area is the exact opposite of what environmentalists expect from progressive Democrats like Buttigieg. It’s like eating fried chicken and barbecue ribs before going to a vegan dinner.
Anytime they can take a shortcut, they will. According to The Post Millennial:
A person off camera can even be heard questioning why the Biden administration official would be wearing a suit while bike riding. Buttigieg has been at the forefront of advocating for President Joe Biden to implement new taxes on transportation, including taxing individual’s based on the amount of distance they have driven as well as increasing taxes on gas.
During Buttigieg’s hearing to become the United States Secretary of Transportation, Buttigieg was asked a question concerning the gas tax by Senator Rick Scott (R-FL), and whether he would support raising it.
This isn’t just a problem with Buttigieg. The entirety of the Biden administration participates in similar activities. They plan out what they do based upon perceptions from the left and optics put on display for them by mainstream media. But their actions indicative of liars and cheats.
Whether it’s Dr. Fauci pulling down his mask when he thinks cameras are off, Gavin Newsom eating out while average people are forced to stay home, or Buttigieg transporting his bike in an SUV, the left focuses on optics over actions.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. 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 are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
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. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
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.
