Many are struggling in this economy. My family is among them. Please support what we’re doing here and help us to continue to spread the truth Americans need to read and hear.
Retired Air Force Lt. Colonel Buzz Patterson has seen his share of Commanders-in-Chief. He came in under President Ronald Reagan and left under President George W. Bush. Under President Bill Clinton, Col. Patterson carried the “nuclear football,” a severe responsibility that very few Americans have had to take on. What he’s seeing with the military today is disturbing.

In the two months and a week since Joe Biden was inaugurated, we have witnessed a transformation in the priorities of the United States military. It has been drastic and the effects have been easily seen. But it didn’t start with Biden. It didn’t even start with Barack Obama, though there was a huge push by that administration to make the military more “woke.” According to Patterson, the transformation began earlier.
“I think the Clinton’s started this process where they started using the military as a social engineering petri dish,” he said. “George W. Bush did a pretty decent job kind of holding that at bay. And then, of course, when Obama came in the floodgates were opened.”
Many have asserted what we’re seeing today is more than a continuation of the Obama policies. They’ve taken it further and infected our military leaders with a truly dangerous mindset.
“What we’re seeing today is the Obama military, the Obama Pentagon leadership that’s been reinstated by Joe Biden,” Col. Patterson continued. “Even some of our most incredible and strong military commands like U.S. Special Operations Command are bending to the wokeness culture.”
According to Newsmax:
The Biden administration’s new head of diversity and inclusion at the Pentagon’s Special Operations Command has been reassigned amid a military investigation of divisive and politically exclusionary social media posts.
Richard Torres-Estrada posted a June 20 photo comparison of former President Donald Trump holding a Bible outside a church to former Nazi Germany dictator Adolf Hitler, a military spokesman told CNN on Monday.

Also, in a February post that was public until Monday, Torres-Estrada posted a Facebook meme suggesting Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was “MISSING” amid the Texas power outages and his ballyhooed travel to Cancun, Mexico. Torres-Estrada’s hiring was announced Thursday, making his stay in the post short-lived after he started in the role earlier in the month.
Special Operations Command tweeted last week:
“USSOCOM welcomes our new Chief of Diversity & Inclusion, Mr. Richard Torres-Estrada. We look forward to his contribution in enhancing the capabilities and effectiveness of #SOF through diversity of talent, helping us recruit the best of the best. #QuietProfessionals”
Torres-Estrada’s reassignment is pending the investigation of his posts, according to Special Operations Command spokesman Kenneth McGraw to CNN. This command oversees special operations for the most elite units in the U.S. military, including the Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and Delta Force.
In the latest episode of NOQ Report, Col. Patterson called out the military that he once called his home. It isn’t the warfighters or the “old school” leaders who concern him, but the way decisions are being made from a social justice perspective in the military is his biggest concern. They are politicizing the military in ways that we have never seen in the past, even under Obama.
“The fact that uniformed officials are using official social media accounts to go after people like Tucker Carlson or to go after political figures, that’s not who the military is, and that’s not what we want as a military,” he said.
The mission has not changed in the minds of our soldiers, but it may be changing. Pressure from the Pentagon under the Biden administration is compelling many proud members of our military to refocus on issues that do not have anything to do with their purpose of protecting our nation.
“Military exists to project force… lethal force when necessary around the globe,” he said. “It is not designed to be an all-inclusive ‘everyone gets to play’ kind of club. That’s not who the military is nor should it ever be.”
Col. Patterson isn’t just on Twitter ranting about these things. He will be running for office again soon. As soon as California figures out redistricting, he will be announcing his candidacy for a congressional seat. When asked about running for Governor of California, he noted that it’s not on his radar yet. His congressional campaign is top priority right now.
We don’t allow Google ads here. We won’t post foot fungus treatments or soft-porn ads like other conservative news outlets. We WILL support MyPillow because they love America. You can support them and me by using promo code “JDR” at checkout.
Strategic military superiority for the United States must be maintained, and doing so means focusing on keeping laser-focused on the mission. There is no place for “woke” considerations by those charged with our national defense.
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!
