If society collapses, do you have the medical supplies you need? Check out “The Medic,” or as I like to call it, the Big Daddy of first aid kits.
Debates on social media surrounding the coronavirus have gone from “everyone’s a virologist” to “everyone’s an emergency management expert.” Now, we’re entering the “everyone’s an economist” phase of the debate as Americans fight over whether or not businesses can survive with government assistance, without government assistance, and for how long.
As someone who has started, built, and sold a business over the decades, I can tell you at no point would I have been able to survive a two-month downtime. Even with government assistance, it would have been challenging as so many businesses rely on momentum and continuity of service to sustain. For some, it’s not about picking up where we left off when the whole coronavirus panic started. Many businesses simply aren’t built for this type of sustained downtime at no fault to them.
Still, we’re seeing “experts” popping up on social media saying ignorant things like, “I’m not going to die for your stock prices” or “why are we bailing out businesses instead of people.” One of my (least) favorites was “any business that can’t survive a month or two down doesn’t deserve to be in business.” Bollocks.
The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh made a perfect analogy that encompasses the argument against a sustained shutdown of the economy and most businesses across the country.
People actually think the government can magically freeze the economy like a pound of beef and then thaw it again in a few months and all we’ll lose is a bit of flavor. No. That’s not how this works. The government is not magical. It can destroy the economy. It can’t resurrect it

One of the reasons we’re building the American Conservative Movement is because we need to educate as many people as possible about the inefficacy of government in times like this. They’re doing their best, but it’s not enough. We need to unite as a people to fight this disease intelligently, cautiously, and with all of the factors taken into account. This isn’t just about making sure as few people as possible get infected by the coronavirus. We have to consider the state of the country when the coronavirus passes, and that’s something that’s simply not getting nearly enough discussion. Economic collapse and rising authoritarianism will be in play long after the coronavirus is no longer a major concern.
We’re going to have to deal with freedom-shattering repercussions of the coronavirus panic when the dust settles. It will be more difficult than dealing with virus itself if we do not make smarter decisions today.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
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.
When preparing for societal collapse, don’t forget the water!
