COULD/SHOULD HE RUN AGAIN IN 2024?
I wrote a lot about this between November 8th and January 20th.
IF NOT TRUMP, WHY NOT?
Whatever you think about the psychosis of “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” it is not going to go away. Donald Trump can do a lot as an ex-president now by speaking out on the issues and helping hold Joe Biden and his puppet masters accountable.
If Trump runs next time, we will be relitigating the last election which he did legitimately win but which was stolen. Once again, there will be no opportunity to discuss the substantive issues. All about Trump and nothing else. That kind of single-focused referendum will detract from any legitimate criticisms, and there are plenty already, of the Harris-Biden Administration.
IF NOT TRUMP, THEN WHO?
I am on the record that all of the RINOs who did not do what they could have and should have to preserve the legitimate victory of Donald Trump in this last election have forfeited all right to criticize the current terrible administration which they are guilty of allowing to usurp power. The number one culprit is absolutely Mike Pence. Go back to Indiana, dude!
But there are members of both the Senate and the House who may want to put their hat in the ring. The only one that I see who has an unblemished and consistent record is Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri. I would work just as actively to support his campaign as I would to oppose Mike Pence and others who let down America.
Those who burrowed down into their holes on January 6th need not apply to be leader of the free world. You know who you are and you have to face that image in the mirror, so I won’t bother to list your names here.
AMERICA’S MARATHON PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN
National elections in this country are notoriously long. But, I actually propose that we make it even longer than usual and not wait until after the midterm elections in 2022. We don’t know how much longer the inept and feeble Joe Biden will remain our putative president until his handlers replace him with Kamala Harris as our 47th president. Whether he resigns or they use the 25th Amendment, either way the result is the same.
I know some are going to be offended that I’m not jumping on the bandwagon and advocating that Donald Trump return to the White House. My contention is that he could have saved this last election but for some reason, which may never be known within our lifetime, he chose not to do everything within his power to do so. Yes, I’m referring only to constitutional means.
Trump could do a lot as a power broker and patriot just to help America preserve his legacy by choosing a much younger successor. Joe Biden is 78 years old and Donald Trump will be 78 before November 5, 2024. Ronald Reagan was just short of 70 when he was first inaugurated and they thought he was too old for the job back then, but he got through eight fantastic years before his Alzheimer’s took its eventual tragic toll.
JFK was inaugurated at age 43. I was with my 6th grade school class in Sedalia, Missouri on that cold January day watching his memorable speech, in which he spoke the profound admonition:
“Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”
PASSING THE BATON
The junior Senator from Missouri will be 45 when our next (?) President will take the oath of office on January 20th, 2025. I have been impressed with his actions on the Senate Judiciary Committee during the recent Supreme Court nominee confirmation and in many other areas as a strong pro-life advocate.
I do have a few connections to the Show-Me State. I went to school there for a while while my big brother was in the U.S. Air Force. It is my sister-in-law’s home state and my nephew was born there. My own grandfather was born in Springfield, Missouri, just four years after the Civil War. Springfield is also the headquarters of our Assemblies of God denomination. I have a cousin there whom I plan to visit next summer.
But, like all states, Missouri has had good Senators and bad Senators. I was thrilled when Josh Hawley gave Claire McCaskill her walking papers. Born in Springdale, Arkansas, he made the move from Missouri Attorney General to Capitol Hill to benefit a much wider constituency, We the People of the United States.
The plain-spoken man from Independence, Missouri, Harry S. Truman, was the Democrat President of the United States when yours truly was born. He had that famous sign on his desk which declared that “The Buck Stops Here”. Well, folks, that buck has been passed for over seven decades now and it can stop again at the desk of another patriot from Missouri.
I know it’s very early to begin thinking about encouraging someone to run for president in 2024. But, it’s going to take extraordinary preparation to prevent the shenanigans that happened in 2020. It takes a person of iron will who is able to buck the trend and do what is right even when all his contemporaries are bailing out.
You may or may not agree with all his positions, though thus far I haven’t found any of them that I personally don’t also endorse, but, you can certainly see that Josh Hawley would not bend to any tyrants, either foreign or domestic. He has firmly withstood the persecution for his patriotism on January 6th, so he has proven his mettle.
So, even if your heart still says Trump, let your mind at least entertain the option of Hawley. America will thank you and history will reward you for being a visionary!
‘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.
