There are no shortage of Republicans that talk a big game and betray their base. However, it is a little more unique when a Republican professes Christianity but then overtly governs like a pagan. In 2015, Mike Pence, as governor of Indiana caved to the woke mob over RFRA. Later in the 2015 Presidential debates, Governor John Kasich defended going to a homosexual wedding despite claiming to be Christian. He would later veto a substantive pro-life bill during his final days in office. Asa Hutchinson, Governor of Arkansas would add his name to this list of RINO governors by vetoing a bill that banned doctors from transgendering children.
HB1570 would ban doctors from medically and surgically intervening to groom children into being transvestites. HB1570 is called the Save Adolescents From Experimentation or SAFE Act. It was brought fourth by Rep. Robin Lundstrum who by all accounts seems like a devout Christian. You can read the bill here. Asa Hutchinson also claims to be a Christian. All throughout Holy Week, Gov. Hutchinson is tweeting Bible verses, a regular habit on his gubernatorial Twitter account.

However, the day after proclaiming Christ is Risen, Governor Asa Hutchinson vetoes a bill to prohibit doctors from participating in child abuse.
The move was a rather odd one. Corporate America is largely focused on whether or not to boycott Georgia. The Republicans hold a trifecta in Arkansas. It’s worth noting that Arkansas can only really be considered a “red state” since 2011/2012. But since then the Republican Party gained now enjoys a supermajority in the legislature. This led to the SAFE Act receiving 70% of the votes in the House and 80% in the Senate.
Moreover, Arkansas is one of few state where the legislature can override a veto by a simple majority in both chambers. This puts Asa Hutchinson’s veto in a precarious position.
The SAFE Act is a solid bill. My only criticism is that the bill is vague on the consequences for violating the law, unlike the Alabama version of the bill. Odds are high that Asa Hutchinson’s veto is overruled. Hutchinson is using a libertarian argument against the government interfering in medical decisions to justify his veto. This neglects the fact that medicine is a highly regulated environment. Moreover, transgenderism is not a medical condition, it is an ideology, one that preys on children. The libertarian Non-Aggression Pact (NAP) can easily be employed to argue in favor of the SAFE Act.
Asa Hutchinson may tweet a lot of Bible verses, but he is JD Greear as governor, a complete and total squish.
‘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.
