Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt talked with Glenn Beck on the border crisis and that we are in a fight to save America – and freedom itself. Yes, that will be taken as a grandiose cliché, but in a very practical manner, our constitutional Republic is on the line. Consider where we are at this point and what we have lost and what the liberticidal Left has been doing to destroy the country.
As he details in the video, America is the noblest experiment in the history of mankind. The founding fathers reversed centuries of philosophy in stating that our rights don’t come from a King or a despot but from God. And that governments are instituted to protect those rights deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
That government is a project to protect those rights that you already have. The government can’t take them away because it never gave them to you. This was the beginning of a very unique idea in the world, one that the anti-liberty Left would like to destroy because they want to control those rights.
Anyone, who has studied history, knows that these ideas were brand new conceptions back in 1776. There has always been a tension between liberty and tyranny. Between those who want to be left alone and those who know better, between the pro-freedom Right and the anti-liberty Left. The problem for the latter is that they cannot be honest about their intentions, so deception is their lot. Lies are their watchword, as in the absurd inversion of reality of the salon propaganda piece: Republicans claim to fear left-wing authoritarianism — but there’s no such thing
If we lose liberty here, there is no going back. Many have compared the fall of Rome to where we are today, but that is going to be a picnic if the liberticidal Left has its way with the nation. There will always be one nation that leads everyone else, the choice is between one based on liberty as in the states or one based in tyranny as in China. Historians will look back at the dark ages with a hint of nostalgia if the latter comes to pass.
The Bottom Line – Let’s not have Liberty become ‘Crimethink’.
George Orwell’s essay on ‘Newspeak’ at the end of the novel 1984 had a very interesting passage on the fact that certain items of ‘pre-revolutionary literature could not be subjected to ideological translation because those concepts had been eliminated from the language:
Pre-revolutionary literature could only be subjected to ideological translation–that is, alteration in sense as well as language. Take for example the well-known passage from the Declaration of Independence:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.
It would have been quite impossible to render this into Newspeak while keeping to the sense of the original. The nearest one could come to doing so would be to swallow the whole passage up in the single word CRIMETHINK. A full translation could only be an ideological translation, whereby Jefferson’s words would be changed into a panegyric on absolute government.
One has to find it interesting that Orwell chose that particular passage to highlight given his ideological change in that his later books were a trenchant criticism of collectivist philosophy. That short passage is a Conservative mission statement, setting forth a major change in the relationship between the people and the government.
There is a key definitional statement that differentiates the pro-freedom Right from the anti-liberty Left:
The Right favours liberty over control, the Left favours control over Liberty.
That sets out the stark contrast between the two sides of the political divide. We can be honest and forthright about the issues because we stand on the side of individualism and basic civil rights. The liberticidal Left cannot because it is on the side of collectivism against civil rights. That is the battle that we are engaged in right now and the battle we cannot lose.
The Dangers of Speaking the Truth Diminish If We Work Together
It’s becoming harder and harder for patriots to ignore the deep suppression of truth that’s happening in America today.
In all of my years in journalism, I have never received as many threats or been attacked by big companies like Google and Facebook as I have in 2021. I’d say that ever since we started covering widespread voter fraud, government-endorsed Pandemic Panic Theater, vaccine cover-ups, Critical Race Theory, and the various Neo-Marxist and Satanic agendas at play, I’ve been targeted more in months than the entirety of my life prior.
Speaking the truth is getting harder with so much censorship and suppression rampant. Prior to 2020, I was not a “conspiracy theorist” or an “anti-vaxxer,” but if there’s one thing the onslaught of exposed lies have taught us in the last 18 months, it’s that we cannot take what we’re told by the “arbiters of truth” at face value. There’s an agenda behind every message, a narrative driving every story, and a series of gigantic cover-ups designed to keep the masses in the dark.
This is why we’re building a network of news outlets that are willing to go against the narrative and expose the truth. We need help. We’re establishing strong partnerships with like-minded news outlets and courageous journalists. Even as Big Tech suppresses us, the honest messages they’re trying to quash are finding their way to the eyes and ears of patriots across the nation. With the help of new content partners like The Epoch Times and The Liberty Daily, we’re starting to see a real impact.
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
Some of our content is spread across all of these sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
I’ve said much of this before. From time to time I reframe this request for assistance by taking the most relevant message of the day and adjusting the story accordingly. We’ve discussed this network in previous articles. Now, it’s time to talk about help. First and foremost, we need financial assistance detailed below. But we could also use more writers who are willing to volunteer their thoughts for the sake of spreading the message. Those who are interested should contact me directly.
As far as money, we’re looking better than we have in the recent past, but we are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $2200-$7800 per month. May, 2021, for example, was amazing and we almost broke even. June, revenue was sluggish at best and we had to make up a big difference out of our pockets. But we’re not just trying to get out of the red. If and when we start getting enough contributions to expand, we will do just that. Very few get into journalism to try to get rich and we’re definitely not among those who do. Our success is driven by spreading the truth, profitable or not.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Time is short. 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 and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
