Portland is lost. With many of the finest citizens of the city and the state of Oregon leaving for places where law and order are allowed, the radical leftists have established ongoing control of the city for as long as it’s still standing. Unfortunately, that may not be much longer if they don’t reverse course quickly.
They won’t. They’ll double down. When faced with failure, progressives tend to never learn from their mistakes, instead opting to making things worse until the next generation inherits the dumpster fires they light.
A (former) Portland business owner took to TikTok to show the results of another looting of his property. He blamed homelessness, drug abuse, depression, and the greatly weakened law enforcement in the city. And for all of these circumstances, he blamed progressive policies, demonstrating how there’s nothing compassionate about their so-called “compassionate” policies. Watch:

“I don’t think there’s anything compassionate about letting people live in filth on the side of the freeway, enabling drug abuse, or making parents sweep their kids’ soccer field because there’s so many hypodermic needles on it,” he said.

Portland has been on a downward trend for decades under Democrat rule, but the last two years have been particularly hard on them as the radical leftists in charge continue to try to “out-woke” each other with worse and worse policies.
“What did you expect would happen when you normalize homelessness and drug abuse?” he asked. “When you villainize the police? When you allow looting in the name of social justice? You can’t put policies in place because they sound good. You have to do what works.”
What works is law and order. What works are laws that take criminals off the streets, put drug abusers in rehab and/or jail, and put police officers in the right places with enough authority to keep the peace. That’s not to say a police state is in order, but if any city needed a temporary one put in place, it would be Portland.
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.
