Don’t run out of coffee during the apocalypse. Stock up on delicious coffee that’s freeze-dried and sealed to keep it fresh for decades.
Who makes the best case against Joe Biden’s and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s push to end the filibuster? That would be young Senator Barack Obama, who gave an eloquent and accurate argument against Republicans lifting the filibuster in 2005.
That doesn’t seem to jibe with what Biden said during his “press conference” yesterday when he likened the filibuster rule in the Senate to a “Jim Crow relic.” It is not. It’s a rule that makes sense based on what Obama said 15 years ago:

Remember this video when you hear Obama, Biden, and the Democrats try to say the filibuster is racist. If you’re having a hard time wrapping your head around that notion, it’s because you’re not an idiot. Many on the left, however, are idiots and they’re going to buy the “Jim Crow” line like guppies.
“And if all this takes eliminating the filibuster, another Jim Crow relic, in order to secure the God-given rights of every American, then that’s what we should do,” Obama said last year.
The filibuster rule was designed to prevent majority party absolute rule. It forced Senators to come together with minority parties to better represent the will of all the people, not just a slight majority. Eliminating it now (or ever) removes an important part of our republic. But it’s not codified. It’s not part of the Constitution. It can be eliminated quite easily by a majority party. Past majority leader Mitch McConnell was called on to eliminate it several times, but refused.
The only thing stopping it from happening now is one Senator, West Virginia’s Joe Manchin. Biden is doing everything he can to bring Manchin over to the dark side, going so far as to hire Manchin’s wife to a cushy post.
Bloomberg reports that Biden is planning to nominate the wife of West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, a conservative “Blue Dog” Democrat and a critical senatorial swing vote, to a “regional economic development position.”
President Joe Biden plans to nominate Gayle Conelly Manchin — an educator and the wife of Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, a key swing vote — to a regional economic development position after the lawmaker has emerged as a key swing vote in the chamber.
Gimmicks work for many precious metals companies. I despise gimmicks, which is why I recommend the straightforward approach of Our Gold Guy. If you want to buy precious metals, don’t get jacked around. Contact Ira.
The White House said Friday that Gayle Manchin is Biden’s pick for federal co-chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission, an economic development partnership between the federal government and 13 states, including West Virginia, where the senator and his wife reside.
Nothing has changed in culture, policy, or situation that would require a change of heart by Barack Obama over the filibuster. His argument in 2005 against its elimination stands today. The only difference is Democratic desperation.
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.
