On January 6, 2020, angry Americans gathered in Washington, DC. The vast majority engaged in spirited but peaceful protests. Some of them entered the Capitol Building, prompted by Deep State operatives and Antifa infiltrators. What results was a lot of men and women subsequently arrested and called “insurrectionists” despite being universally unarmed and not engaging in much beyond trespassing.
Since then, all Democrat lawmakers, some Republican (RINO) lawmakers, and their shills in corporate media have spent a year trying to convince the American people that the mostly peaceful protests of the day were worse than Pearl Harbor or 9/11. Fake news network CNN went all-in, dedicating the anniversary to gaslighting as many Americans as possible.
Apparently, it didn’t work. According to Bonchie at RedState:
Does this qualify as poetic justice? Because this feels a lot like poetic justice.
With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
The ratings are in for CNN’s “commemoration” coverage of January 6th, and hoo boy, they are not good. The network played out a full day of hand-wringing and tortured analysis, culminating in a two-hour event live from Statuary Hall inside the Capitol Building. All the stops were pulled out, including a headlining interview with Nancy Pelosi.
The obvious goal was to stimulate a repeat of last year’s blockbuster, January 6th ratings, where CNN led all other networks in viewership as the events unfolded. In a phrase, that didn’t happen. In fact, the liberal network got absolutely trounced by Fox News.
Those numbers come via my friend Curtis Houck over at Newsbusters.
Womp, womp, womp: Fox News bests CNN, MSNBC on January 6 anniversary (by a lot) https://t.co/DXWLzm58Dx

This isn’t the only evidence that most Americans just aren’t that interested in believing the January 6 protests represent the end of the republic (or as CNN likes to say, the end of the “democracy”). As confirmation bias goes, the media festivities of their new holiday demonstrate that those who believe the protests mean the end of America allowed themselves to be further indoctrinated on CNN and MSNBC. The majority of people who aren’t fooled didn’t bother watching.
Bonchie concluded by stating the obvious about why Americans aren’t buying the January 6th mainstream narrative (other than the fact that it’s false.) We just have more important issues to focus our energy and attention on, so an event from a year ago that didn’t affect very many Americans directly just isn’t high on the attention hierarchy.
What’s all this tell us? It tells us exactly what RedState and other conservative sources have been saying for a long time: Very few people still care about January 6th. It was a short-lived period of regrettable unrest where all the perpetrators were arrested and punished harshly. The country’s government was not almost overthrown, there was no actual threat to our “democracy,” and it was not an organized coup. Just because something is damaging and politically idiotic, that does not mean it’s in the same universe as Pearl Harbor and the Holocaust (yes, an MSNBC “historian” actually made that latter comparison yesterday).
Sure, a lot of people were disturbed by what they saw when the events of January 6th played out last year, but it’s not 2021 anymore. Normal people are far more concerned about issues that actually affect their lives now, and they want to see their elected representatives take those issues seriously, whether we are talking about inflation, the jobs market, or something else.
The continued January 6th obsession by Democrat politicians and networks like CNN is not playing well, and in the end, it’s going to backfire even more.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
