It was like old times yesterday.
Article by Joseph Farah from WND.
I was in a gas line – a big one!
It took more than an hour for me to find an open gas station, with most unable to obtain gasoline at $3 plus a gallon. The task, I realized, meant actual shopping. Not price comparison, mind you. It was all $3 plus. But at least half of the stations didn’t have any fuel. The shopping involved comparing the lengths of lines.
And worse, beggars couldn’t be choosers. Not all gas lines were equal. You had to choose a line and not know what kind of gas was available. The one I chose was the cheapest gas, low octane – but I have two Suburbans that run better on high octane.
After getting in line, it took me an hour to wait for gas in Fairfax County, Virginia.
The lines were not like Jimmy Carter’s.
This one had Joe Biden written all over it.
For those old enough to remember the 1970s, you will recall that the gas lines were caused by rationing. You were assigned a “gas day” by the president of the United States. Really. That was the main cause of the lines. It was meant to be a prevention but was actually the opposite. That’s the way government usually works.
Not for Joe Biden, however.
Tucker Carlson, a man I greatly admire, suspects Biden planned the crisis because he thinks we’re all gas guzzlers. We’re just in love with gasoline, and he thinks it’s his job to wean us off of it.
Of course, that’s crazy. But remember, this is the Biden administration.
Never mind that we have to work. Never mind that Americans like to travel freely. And never mind that Americans still have the archaic notion that we are sovereigns in this once great country.
Carlson warned that the disruption in the Colonial Pipeline and the resulting shortage panic is being carried out by design.
He said that the situation represents a “grimmer version of the 1970s,” with many states declaring emergency shortages and experiencing price gouging. We are told the responsible party is “some mysterious gang of cybercriminals [who] hacked the software at a major American fuel supplier.”
Here was his take on the situation. The entertaining Mr. Carlson declared: “The same lunatics who don’t believe in human biology immediately made a serious mess of our economy. It took them less than six months to do it.”
That would be the Biden administration, or whoever you think is running the country, making important decisions, like whether you can buy gasoline or not.
Comparing the scenes to Venezuela, rather than the 1970s, Carlson noted that the New York Times says this is just another “conspiracy theory.”
“On some level, let’s be honest about it, the White House approves of this disaster,” Carlson proclaimed, adding that “the lunatics plan to close every gas station in the entire United States, shuttered forever, to make way for some new as yet not quite defined means of transportation that will magically replace the gasoline engines that we have used for more than a hundred years.”
He’s not kidding. This is the ACTUAL PLAN.
Carlson continued, “Bad federal policies are distorting the price of everything in this country, from two-by-fours to diesel fuel to corn dogs.”
“None of this is an accident just as it wasn’t an accident when the power went out in Texas over the winter,” the host continued, adding “It wasn’t a cold snap that did it. It was a federal policy that encouraged the state to rely on windmills which don’t actually work. It’s not a natural cycle. Somebody did this to us on purpose,” Carlson warned.
Of course, with Joe Biden we’re only guessing. He may not even know the rest of the country is experience gas lines. It might not be making his briefings. He hasn’t done a thing to stop the border rush yet – during a pandemic!
They say this was caused by a ransomware attack crippling the Colonial Pipeline. If so, and this was masterminded by the Russians or Chinese, why isn’t Biden punishing the fiends who did it?
Maybe we’ll find out from White House press secretary Jen Psaki. Sure.
‘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.
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.
