When an Establishment Democrat tries to pander to the radical wing of their party, they often get ridiculed from both sides of the aisle. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand learned this the hard way when she weighed in on Twitter on the hot topic of infrastructure.
Her Tweet was written in Marxese to catch the attention of Bernie’s Bolsheviks.
Paid leave is infrastructure.
Child care is infrastructure.
Caregiving is infrastructure.
— Kirsten Gillibrand (@SenGillibrand) April 7, 2021
Her list of paid leave, child care, and caregiving being part of infrastructure is ludicrous as none of these are infrastructure by any stretch of the imagination. It was a callback to Senator Bernie Sanders’ call earlier in the week for “human infrastructure.”
“Roads and bridges and tunnels are infrastructure. But I think many of us see a crisis in human infrastructure. When a working-class family can’t find good-quality, affordable child care, that’s human infrastructure,” Sanders told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday.
Various non-infrastructure items have been inserted into the proposed bill already. EIC JD Rucker noted that this is more of a path to Modern Monetary Theory by way of the Green New Deal as only 5% actually goes to roads and bridges.
Conservative Twitter was mocking of Gillibrand’s attempt at political wokeness, as they should be. Senator Ted Cruz pointed out that infrastructure to Democrats is whatever they want to push in their massive bill proposal.
Abortion is infrastructure.
Gun control is infrastructure.
Forced unionization is infrastructure.
Whatever the Left wants is infrastructure.
You know what’s not? Roads & bridges.
ONLY 5% OF BIDEN’s “INFRASTRUCTURE” BILL IS ROADS & BRIDGES. 🤡🤡 https://t.co/jgP3ZEwGCy

Catturd injected his sarcasm by pretending to be a leftist.
A chair is infrastructure.
Grass is infrastructure.
A dog is infrastructure.
The sky is infrastructure.
Pretending to be a Liberal is fun – 🥳

Our EIC invoked The Princess Bride.
You keep using that word.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem asked the obvious question.
So what ISN'T infrastructure? https://t.co/jfbnsCbP0F

Representative Mark Walker tried to educate the Senator on what is and isn’t infrastructure.
Rural access to broadband is infrastructure.
Upgrading roads and bridges is infrastructure.
Securing our border is infrastructure.
Union boss hands out like the PRO Act is NOT infrastructure.
Biden’s bill is a trojan horse to raise taxes. https://t.co/eHDBsfDUp7

Michael Knowles tried to one-up her on silliness.
Chicken is time.

Wayne Dupree escalated the issue to her everlasting soul.

While the right had a great laugh, the left wasn’t running to her defense. Some of the responses to her Tweet from fellow Democrats were less-than-flattering. Her Tweet has nearly 4000 quote retweets while less than 2000 actual retweets, a ratio indicative of disagreement from both sides of the aisle.
Democrats are depending on lunacy to drive their agenda. Doing so requires them to step out and say dumb things in hopes that they’ll inspire… something. Kirsten Gillibrand demonstrated she’s not very good at playing their game.
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 nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- 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,
