President Joe Biden on Wednesday, April 28, gave a speech to a joint session of Congress that was more boring than Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reading the yellow pages. He took a rather dire tone, stating that when he took office, he “inherited a nation in crisis.” After droning on about the coronavirus pandemic, he repeated his usual milquetoast calls for unity.

But something was missing from the president’s speech. No, it was not pillows and blankets, although those would have been appropriate. Biden said absolutely nothing about the migrant crisis that his administration has been trying to ignore for months.
Biden Mum On Migrants
At no point in his speech did President Biden even mention the situation at the southern border, nor did he outline his plans to address the issue. It was an exceedingly conspicuous omission, and it did not go unnoticed.
Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) slammed Biden for failing to discuss a strategy for dealing with the surge of migrants at the southern border. Kelly, who represents a swing state located on the border, released a statement taking the president to task for ignoring the problem. He wrote:
“While I share President Biden’s urgency in fixing our broken immigration system, what I didn’t hear tonight was a plan to address the immediate crisis at the border, and I will continue holding this administration accountable to deliver the resources and staffing necessary for a humane, orderly process as we work to improve border security, support local economies, and fix our immigration system.”
During his speech, it seemed that Biden was talking around the migrant issue when he called on Congress to “end our exhausting war over immigration.”
“For more than 30 years, politicians have talked about immigration reform, and we’ve done nothing about it. It’s time to fix it,” he insisted. “Now look, if you don’t like my plan, let’s at least pass what we all agree on. Congress needs to pass legislation this year to finally secure protection for Dreamers, the young people who have only known America as their home.”
Shortly after taking office, Biden announced his plan to provide a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million illegal immigrants currently residing in the U.S. During the primary campaign. He indicated that he wished to see a “surge” of immigrants coming into the country. His enthusiastic public embrace of an open border immigration approach enticed hundreds of thousands of migrants to make the dangerous trek.
Some of these individuals wore T-shirts that read, “Biden, please let us in!” In interviews, some of these individuals indicated that they were making the trip because they believed this president would grant them entry into the U.S.
“Look, immigrants have done so much for America during this pandemic and throughout our history. The country supports immigration reform,” Biden said. “We should act. Let’s argue over it. Let’s debate over it. But let’s act.”
Biden Trying To Avoid Scrutiny?
Both Republicans and Democrats have noted that the migrant crisis has become a total and utter disaster. Leaders on both sides have criticized the president for his failure to develop and implement effective solutions. Members of the activist media pilloried the Biden administration for ordering Border Patrol not to speak with the press about the crisis.
The lack of transparency has also been a source of contention for those seeking information about the situation at the southern border. To put it simply, the White House has been lying about this matter since the beginning, and it is telling that the president chose not to mention it during his address to Congress.
This is yet another sign demonstrating that this White House has no real plan to fix the problem it caused. Vice President Kamala Harris has avoided deeper discussions about the issue despite being appointed Border Czar by the president. Unfortunately, if Biden’s omission of the issue is any indication, this crisis will continue to get worse.

‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $4100 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, 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 going.
