Many Conservatives are getting frustrated with our GOP leadership, which has led to the rise of the outsiders. We’ve seen a lot of first time candidates over the past few election cycles, several of whom I’ve had the opportunity to interview on Freedom One-On-One, including Lauren Boebert, Burgess Owens, Mindy Robinson, DeAnna Lorraine, Buzz Patterson and JR Majewski. Moira McCabe joins that list of names as we discuss her campaign for governor of Oklahoma.
Moira definitely has a libertarian streak in her, which I can relate to, since I have a Classical Liberal streak to me, as well. However, I’ve recently realized that we need to have a more Conservative ideology when it comes to local politics, while I take a more Classical Liberal Perspective when it comes to the Feds. But even then, it’s simply classic Federalism and States Rights, which Moira and I dive into after talking about some of hot button issues of the day.
A huge problem that has been compounding over the past several decades is the expansion of the role of the Federal Government. We’ve gotten to the point now to where it’s a common held belief that Federal law outweighs State law, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
The Constitution severely limits the authority of the Federal Government, yet our government officials have completely ignored that. However, we cannot lay all of the blame on our Presidents, Congressmen & women or even the Supreme Court. We must lay a good portion of the fault with our state officials who have happily exchanged Federal funding for a larger and more expansive Fed.
We need governors who will not submit to a tyrannical and illegal government. They must hold to the Constitution of the United States, and if the Federal Government oversteps its authority, it is up to the states to check that power. To do so, it takes having a spine and the strength to take on the wrath that is the Federal government.
Moira McCabe is definitely an outsider. As a more libertarian candidate for governor of Oklahoma, it’s going to be more difficult to get the backing of the state GOP. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing… it could actually be extremely beneficial, as more conservatives are waking up to the fact that our GOP leadership is not on our side.

‘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 pacing to be short by about $3700 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.
