Editor’s Commentary: This is one of the most important points we and others have been trying to make for years. The phenomenon of fake news and manipulative mainstream media is not new. It’s been happening since the dawn of mass media, but only in recent years have the propagandists been bold enough to come out with blatant lies. Only in recent years have those who stood by the truth been so easy to eliminate.
The powers-that-be can do this because it’s universal. Before, there were honest journalists who would call out the unambiguous bias and falsehoods their peers were spewing. But sometime between 2016 and 2020, mainstream media “journalists” were culled of any brave voices who would speak out against the propaganda. They were given a choice: Play ball with the agenda or start a Substack with a podcast.
I’m not saying that to denigrate the rare courageous souls like Lou Dobbs, Trish Regan, other MSM personalities, and countless unknown journalists who were eliminated for standing by their unwavering beliefs. I’m simply highlighting how the powers-that-be were able to turn those who were previously known as real journalists. They made the repercussions of telling the truth too difficult for most to bear.
Today, every mainstream media outlet is 99% agenda-driven. That’s not to say that 99% of what they post is driven by the agenda, but nearly all who are involved are either in on the planned narratives or too concerned about job security to speak out. Occasionally, we see someone like Ivory Hecker stand up and reveal what’s really happening behind the scenes, but for every Ivory Hecker there are thousands of Jake Tappers.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the article below from The Organic Prepper by Jeff Thompson. I also appreciate NOQ Report being listed as one of the news sources people should trust. Others on the list are spot-on with their coverage despite being constantly attacked by “fact checkers,” Big Tech, mainstream media itself, and the growing ranks of politicians bent on Nazi-style censorship. More Americans need to wake up and start getting their news from places like The Liberty Daily or Uncanceled News instead of Google News or MSN.
Without further adieu, here’s Jeff Thompson…
Why Alternative News Is America’s Last Hope for True Journalism
“How can you believe that? I mean, look at your source. It’s an alternative news site. According to my TV, the truth is the polar opposite.”
How often have you heard similar responses from those you try to share the truth of current events? The argument is that your sources can’t be trusted because they don’t fall within the domain of the mainstream media. As if television is the harbinger of truth, right? (Hear No Evil. See No Evil. Speak No Evil?)
News flash: the era of Walter Cronkite is long gone.
Your TV does lie to you – it is not to be trusted blindly – and to believe otherwise is to be incredibly naïve. You are willingly setting yourself up to fall for every bit of propaganda thrust upon the public by thinking otherwise. Did Joseph Goebbels teach us nothing?
Propaganda works, and the informed American can discern both what is true and what is not. If you’re willing to drink from a cesspool, don’t be upset when you later discover you’ve been ingesting sewage.
But, can you provide evidence for such a notion?
Well, let’s look at the track record:
- Does anybody else remember the entire “those white boys are making fun of an Indian!” fiasco? Dagney Taggart wrote the truth about the witch hunt here. [And for more information here’s a source and another source]
- Do you recall the Jussie Smollett case?
- Have you ever delved into how your local news is reading off of the same script? Here is an incredibly powerful video of Operation Mockingbird:
And what about this whopper…
Here we have Michael Avenatti, who claimed he had the goods on Trump and was going to bring down the former President. Dubbed the “Creepy Porn Lawyer” by Tucker Carlson, Avenatti appeared on television 254 times.
Then, multiple federal grand juries indicted Avenatti and sentenced him to 30 months in prison for extortion and embezzlement. More criminal trials to come next year in New York and Los Angeles.
Avenatti’s sentencing got a total of 17 seconds — all on ABC.
And the list goes on. Just check out Howie Carr’s list on The Boston Herald.
Is there an agenda at play here?
You tell me. Here we have a man standing in front of a burning building at a “mostly peaceful” protest.
Moments before the Taliban nearly pistol-whipped her producer, CNN reporter Clarissa Ward said the Taliban seemed friendly. Despite chants of “Death to America.”
Kathryn Murdock, wife of Fox News owner James Murdoch tweeting, “We did it” after the Biden Event.
In 2016, Daisy got banned from her Facebook business page after people reported this article as “hate speech” because she posted the full, uncut video after the nicely edited video. (The uncut video was quickly removed from YouTube.)
Last year, Daisy wrote about how SFFN was trying to silence independent sites, like Zero Hedge, by having them defunded. And, of course, we all know about what happened here at The Organic Prepper early this year.
So, who can we trust?
You can undoubtedly think of many other events over the past two years that seem to show something afoot. And that’s why I believe alternative news is America’s last hope of trustworthy journalism. When all other venues silence the truth and professionals are no longer permitted to discuss what they see around them – what other options do we have?
Americans have a long tradition of staying abreast of current events. This thirst for knowledge has helped us guard our freedom against the ever-growing threat of tyranny.
Thomas Jefferson was spot on when he said:
“The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.” – Thomas Jefferson
Jefferson also instructed Americans on the importance of a free press.
“Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.” – Thomas Jefferson
“I have looked on our present state of liberty as a short-lived possession, unless the mass of the people could be informed to a certain degree.” – Thomas Jefferson
He (along with many others) protected the free press by the inclusion of the First Amendment within the Bill of Rights.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. ~ The First Amendment
Our Founding Fathers fully understood the importance of a well-informed populace.
“Republics and limited monarchies derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates.” – Benjamin Franklin
“The liberty of the press is essential to the security of the state.” – John Adams
Yet when we have a clear and ever-present agenda being forced down American’s throats, what are the end consequences?
In FA Hayek’s fantastic book The Road to Serfdom, he cautions against the dangers of ever-present propaganda. Hayek states it could lead even intelligent people astray with enough time and prevalence.
“If all the sources of current information are effectively under one single control, it is no longer a question of merely persuading the people of this or that. The skillful propagandist then has the power to mold their minds in any direction he chooses, and even the most intelligent and independent people cannot entirely escape that influence if they are long isolated from all other sources of information.” – FA Hayek, The Road to Serfdom
My alternative news website recommendations.
In an American’s search for truth regarding the events of the world, I fully believe that alternative news is the only answer we have left. If you’re on the hunt for accurate alternative news sites, I highly recommend the following:
- The Organic Prepper (but, of course!)
- The Last American Vagabond
- Zero Hedge
- The Gateway Pundit
- Ammo Land
- Ammo.com (the library)
- Off-Grid Survival
- Activist Post
- Technocracy News
- NOQ Report
- American Partisan
- Survival Magazine
America needs well-informed citizens. I would argue such is needed now more than ever. Your nation needs you. It needs you to be well informed. And alternative news is the way for you to do so. The only way they can keep providing information is by reader support, as many of these sites are under attack.
Alternative news or mainstream? What are your thoughts?
Are you a mainstream media fan or is alternative the way to go? Do you believe or disbelieve MSM? What are some other examples of propaganda you have witnessed? Let’s talk about it in the comments section.

Plandemic, Voter Fraud, Afghanistan: All Parts of The Great Reset
If you still consider “conspiracy theorist” to be a pejorative, you’re not paying enough attention.
What do Covid-19, 2020 (and beyond) election fraud, and our disastrous abandoning of American citizens in Afghanistan have to do with one another? They’re all parts of the globalist plan to usher in a new era of Neo-Marxism in a depopulated world. This is The Great Reset unfolding before our eyes, and the only way we can stop it (other than through constant prayer) is to stand together and spread the truth.
Covid-19’s attachment to The Great Reset is obvious, though we continue to post about it daily. Voter fraud is a bit less obvious but nonetheless easy to recognize when we understand that people like Joe Biden, Justin Trudeau, and Emmanuel Macron are pushing to “Build Back Better” under the precepts of Neo-Marxism.
The Afghanistan betrayal in August, 2021, is harder to associate with The Great Reset, but it’s definitely just as attached. We can see this is the unwillingness of the Biden regime to extend the deadline to withdraw despite American lives put clearly in harm’s way. We can see it in the needlessly abandoned military equipment that was conspicuously left intact; disabling a Black Hawk takes minutes but they were given to the Taliban in pristine working condition. Then, there’s the pallets of hundred dollar bills left for them. If you think all of this was just irresponsible governance, you probably think Barack Obama is out of politics, too.
Weakening America’s standing in the world and empowering the Chinese Communist Party and others to engage fully with our enemies in a globalist cabal are beneficial to the architects of The Great Reset, and both happened in one fell swoop in August.
These truths need to be spread. As a conservative network of news outlets, we are swimming upstream against the forces of mainstream media. We are getting canceled across the board by Big Tech. We will continue to spread the truth to millions, but we desperately need help to spread the truth to a wider range of people. This is where you come in.
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
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
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
Some of our content is spread across multiple 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.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, 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,
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
