Editor’s Commentary: Texas is leading the way in the push for the most important tool states SHOULD possess: nullification. I say they SHOULD possess it because it’s never been properly used. In theory, the states formed the compact to empower the federal government and therefore should be the ultimate arbiters of laws that break the Constitution. It’s never been played out properly, but we may finally see it working if enough states push back against the Biden-Harris regime’s attacks on the 2nd Amendment.
In this article by Bob Unruh at WND, we learn that the GOP in Texas intends to oppose any future attacks against the 2nd Amendment by invoking nullification. If it comes to pass, there will be a massive fight over it in the courts and the Supreme Court will ultimately decide. I’m very hopeful this happens because for the first time in decades, we have a Supreme Court that might actually side with the states for once. Here are the details from Bob Unruh:
Republicans in Texas have a message for Joe Biden in response to his demands that many weapons be banned.
“Come and take it.”
For those who are not familiar with Texas history, a report in the Center Square adds some detail:
“The phrase is known to Texans as the rallying cry that sparked the Texas Revolution on Oct. 2, 1835, in Gonzalez, Texas. The Mexican Army attempted to take a small cannon that was largely ineffective but used as a scare tactic to thwart Comanche raids and Texans weren’t giving it up without a fight. Their fight ultimately ended in an 18-minute battle in San Jacinto on April 21, 1836.”
The newest response from the Texas party is to Biden’s continuing vows to ban so-called “assault rifles.”
He recently said, on social media, “It’s time we ban assault weapons in this country.”
To which the party says, “Come and Take It.”
The Texas legislature just recently passed a permitless carry bill, and Gov. Greg Abbott promptly signed it. The Texas GOP’s platform also suggests that the state legislature and Congress to repeal and/or nullify the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968.
The report explained the party also passed unrestricted Constitutional Carry by amending the Texas Constitution; supports nullifying any gun laws that violate the Second Amendment or rights of due process; supports national reciprocity for gun ownership rights; supports recognizing the right of License to Carry holders to carry anywhere that off-duty or retired law enforcement can carry, among other measures.
WND reported only a day earlier that Biden repeatedly has claimed that AR-15 rifles need to be banned in America – part of his gun control agenda – because “the bullet out of an AR-15 travels five times as rapidly as a bullet shot out of any other gun.”

But it turns out that like his wild and false claim that certain weapons were banned from private ownership at the ratification of the Second Amendment, he’s wrong about this too. A Field & Stream study on the “Five Fastest Rifle Cartridges,” in fact, listed five products.
They include the .220 Swift, a 40-grain round that moves at about 4,300 feet per second. For the AR bullet to be five times faster, it would have to travel four miles – in a second. At the rate of 240 miles in a minute. More than 14,000 miles an hour.
Also ranked was the .257 Weatherby Magnum, which moves at about 3,700 fps, the .30/378 Weatherby, at about 3,400 fps, the .224 Clark, at about 3,500 fps, and the .22 Eargesplitten Loudenboomer, and about 4,600 fps.
“AR-15 rounds move at approximately 2,700-3,100 fps. Even handgun bullets can reportedly reach around 2,000 fps (though that is rare),” reported legal commentator Jonathan Turley in an article about Biden’s inaccuracies.
He explained, “Conservative and gun rights publications have repeatedly shot down that claim but it does not seem to have any impact. As with Biden’s false claim that certain weapons were banned from private ownership at the ratification of the Second Amendment, the president continues to make the same false claim on velocity…”
The column pointed out that “even the Washington Post has called Biden’s repeated velocity claim ‘bungled’ and factually incorrect,” and the AR-15 is only slightly faster than most hunting rifles.
He opined, “Those false statements can be dismissed as just another gaffe or ‘Corn Pop’ story, but they refer to the factual foundation for gun control under the Second Amendment. Since President Biden is suggesting that such facts are material to a ban, there is a need for accuracy in such details,” he wrote.
Incidentally, Biden also has claimed that a “.22-caliber bullet will lodge in the lung, and we can probably get it out — may be able to get it and save the life. A 9mm bullet blows the lung out of the body.”

Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
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 six sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- 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.
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.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD 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.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
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,
