On May 11, Judge Harlin D. Hale of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas dismissed the National Rifle Association’s bankruptcy petition. The gun-rights group had filed for bankruptcy in that court to defend itself from attempts by N.Y. Attorney General Letitia James to have the organization legally disbanded. James’ case was based on her authority to regulate New York charities and non-profits, and the NRA had been incorporated in New York in 1871.

The NRA has plenty of money, although that is unlikely to stop its robust and vigorous fundraising by mail. The reason for the NRA’s bankruptcy declaration had nothing to do with its ability to cover its costs. Instead, it filed to protect the organization from a potential attack by James. She filed a petition in New York that claimed the NRA was so hopelessly mismanaged, the state must, out ensure good practice, disband it.
When You’ve Lost The Big Box Media…
To give some insight into James’ radical position to demand that a court dissolve the NRA, a prominent Washington newspaper took issue with her scorched earth plan. Their editorial said, “Forcing its dissolution has disturbing implications — made even more disturbing by the fact that the attorney general seeking that step is a Democrat who vowed during her campaign to ‘take on the NRA’ and labeled it a ‘terrorist organization.’ In this country, we don’t go after entities because of what they advocate.”
Judge Hale ruled that the NRA’s petition was filed for the purpose of protecting it against being disbanded under state law. His 38-page order concluded, “The Court agrees with the NYAG that the NRA is using this bankruptcy case to address a regulatory enforcement problem, not a financial one.” His ruling allows for the NRA to refile its petition, but it came with a warning from the judge who said:
“[S]hould the NRA file a new bankruptcy case, this Court would immediately take up some of its concerns about disclosure, transparency, secrecy, conflicts of interest of officers and litigation counsel, and the unusual involvement of litigation counsel in the affairs of the NRA.”
Filed in federal court, a bankruptcy petition acts as a trump card, no pun intended, on pending state and local court action. By running to federal court, the NRA hoped to cut Letitia James out entirely. They wished to leave the bankruptcy courts reborn as a Texas corporation, which would no longer be susceptible to James’ quest to see the group shut down.
Problems On Waples Mill Road
Judge Hale’s ruling included some shocking facts about the NRA’s bankruptcy filing, all of it indicative of existential dysfunction at the nation’s oldest civil rights organization. Neither the NRA’s General Counsel nor the NRA’s treasurer and then-CFO was even informed about the bankruptcy filing before it was made. The organization has not commented on whether or when it might refile a bankruptcy petition. This represents another setback for the NRA, which is battling the new President’s aggressive gun-control agenda while it fights for its very existence.

‘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.
Whatever they throw at us next, be ready. Dr. Zelenko’s new Z-DTox makes your immune system clean, resilient, and resistant.
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.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
When preparing for societal collapse, don’t forget the water!
