There were a few messages delivered by Democrats at Joe Biden’s sort-of-not-really-State-of-the-Union-address-non-address. No, it wasn’t just in what he said, though there was plenty of fodder for ridicule and condemnation offered by his words. It was the actions of Democrats before, during, and after the event that can only invoke confusion for those who were paying attention.
The first message was that “vaccines work” but certainly not well enough for members of Congress to sit anywhere within shouting distance of one another.
Even less people than his Inauguration pic.twitter.com/jNhpJw2zdb

A room full of lawmakers who have been fully vaccinated and yet they are all wearing face burkas.

Ever since Biden was inaugurated, the White House and health organizations under their control have systematically reduced expectations in the efficacy of the so-called Covid “vaccines.” They once promise the vaccines would bring life back to normal in America. Then, they switched the narrative to the vaccines will get things close to normal once we reach an impossible number of vaccinated Americans to represent their new—and demonstrably false—definition of “herd immunity.”
Now, they’re simply saying the vaccines can help lower the chances of infection and reduce the potency of the symptoms, but normalcy will not be achieved at any point in the near future. Hey, at least they started admitting that wearing face masks outside is a ludicrous action, though not in so many words.
Another message was that “social distancing is essential” except at the end when they all gathered for a shoulder-to-shoulder group pow-pow.
Glad all those fully vaccinated members of Congress got together indoors with masks on while social distancing — not even seated near one another. Sends a good message about the efficacy of vaccines.

We’ve seen this type of hypocrisy from many officials on both sides of the aisle, though still mostly from Democrats. There was Dr. Anthony Fauci quickly taking off his masks when he thought the cameras had stopped rolling. We should all remember California Governor Gavin Newsom frolicking at the French Laundry while forcing the residents of his state to shut down their businesses and eat at home. Now, we have Democrats social distancing for effect, only to engage in what they would have called a “superspreader” event had it been Republicans swarming Donald Trump.
In summary based on their actions, Democrats believe vaccines work though not well enough to take of masks or stop social distancing, which in essence says they don’t believe they work. Then, they say social distancing is great for cameras to virtue signal to the American people throughout the entirety of the speech, only to disregard any semblance of social distancing protocols the moment it ends.
Now, let’s discuss the wordsBiden was told to say, which he was able to do with only a dozen or so flubs (impressive for Joe, really). The first was a head-scratcher. Biden said the January 6th Capitol riot was the “worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.” According to The Daily Mail:
Joe Biden said during his first address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday evening that the Capitol storming on January 6 was the ‘worst attack’ on democracy since the Civil War.
The claim immediately led to major backlash, especially from those on right-wing Twitter, who pointed to a slew of other tragedies in America between the 1860s and 2021 – like the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, Pearl Harbor, presidential assassinations and others.
‘January 6 was worse than 9/11? Or Pearl Harbor?’ Glenn Greenwald, a journalist and former attorney wrote in a Twitter thread.
‘Or the Oklahoma City bombing? Or the dismantling of civil liberties in the name of the Cold War and War on Terror? Or the mass surveillance program secretly and illegally implemented by NSA aimed at US citzens (sic)?’ he continued, calling the president a ‘drama queen’ for hyperbolizing the January 6 riots.

There were a few moments of total incoherency. As Daily Wire noted on Twitter, Biden said, “We have to do more than just build back better. We have to build back better.”

Biden invoked the “deer wearing Kevlar” argument. As John Cooper pointed out, “YIKES: Missed this earlier, but Joe Biden mocking law-abiding gun-owners by sarcastically asking “What, do you think deer are wearing are Kevlar vests?” just shows how out of touch he is.”

But arguably the most egregious and dangerous bit of gaslighting Biden committed tonight was the portion of his speech where he said “We the People” are the government. Keep in mind that he was addressing Congress when he said, “Our Constitution opens with the words, as trite as it sounds, ‘We the People’. It’s time we remembered that ‘We the People’ are the government. You and I, not some force in a distant capital.”
“Our Constitution opens with the words, as trite as it sounds, ‘We the People’. It’s time we remembered that 'We the People' are the government…”
Spoken like a true Democrat. Glad we cleared things up about who’s in charge.

The fact that Democrats did everything they could to demonstrate their hypocrisy to a live national audience should worry us all. They think we’re stupid and too many of us are proving them right every day.
‘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, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have 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. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple 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 cancellation, 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, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
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, CP, and ACM 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 $4100 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.
