There have been a host of calls on the Right to impeach the Occupant of the White House for bungling the Afghanistan exit. (I’m using that polite term in place of a host of more proper, but ultimately inflammatory expressions for what actually happened.) There have been a similar number of statements on the Left about how wonderful it was that the Ice Cream Monster ended “America’s Longest War.”
Any difficulties were due to a brain freeze and will be rectified as soon as the Taliban set up a properly diverse government.
Sober legal minds have actually suggested that, while other acts of his might be impeachable, this foreign policy act is purely within his cognizance (Does he still have a cognitive to have cognizance?), and thus is not subject to Congressional review.
His insistence on an unconstitutional eviction moratorium is just one clear example of violating the Constitution he swore to uphold. But that’s not a (General) Willey-Nilly dash for the airport. Rocky Road Joe does hold the title of Commander-in-Chief, so it’s up to him.
If we go back to the debates over the Constitution, we find that impeachment of a President was not a controversial issue. It was widely thought to be a good check on a bad Chief Executive. The Constitution needed a provision “for defending the community against the incapacity, negligence, or perfidy of the Chief Magistrate.”
It wasn’t good enough to wait for the next election, because, as James Madison noted, “He might pervert his administration into a scheme of peculation (embezzlement) or oppression. He might betray his trust to foreign powers.” This easily led to bribery or treason as grounds for impeachment. But soon it was realized that this wasn’t enough. There were too many opportunities for evil in the President’s office. Smithsonian Magazine notes:
“The Virginia delegates [Mason, Madison, & Randolph] borrowed their model for impeachment from the British Parliament. For 400 years, English lawmakers had used impeachment to exercise some control over the king’s ministers. Often, Parliament invoked it to check abuses of power, including improprieties and attempts to subvert the state. The House of Commons’ 1640 articles of impeachment against Thomas Wentworth, Earl of Strafford, alleged “that he… hath traiterously endeavored to subvert the Fundamental Laws and Government of the Realms… and in stead thereof, to introduce Arbitrary and Tyrannical Government against Law.” (The House of Lords convicted Strafford, who was hanged in 1641.)”
We should note that the key issues are not “misadministration,” which was soundly rejected as a cause for impeachment. After all, being incompetent is not a crime. Electing Jimmy Carter was simply a mistake. Rather, the concern was “improprieties and attempts to subvert the state.”
Numerous writers have noted Biden’s installation of Executive officers who are manifestly hostile to the Constitution. Near-blackmail by the Attorney General against the Arizona election audit comes to mind. The now-rescinded nomination of David Chipman, a rabid anti-Second Amendment activist to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is of a similar kind.
But all that must take a back seat to one key problem with the occupant of the White House. Among his duties are a specific mandate in Article II, section 3. “He shall take care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”
In short, Joe Biden does not have the authority to waive any law. In fact, failure to oversee that the Department of Justice to be certain that it properly enforces all laws without regard for status should constitute a breach of this “take care clause.”
On that ground, Donald Trump could have been impeached for failing to bring criminal charges against Hillary Clinton, James Comey and several others. He’s out of office, so our attention should be drawn to Hunter Biden’s laptop and his blatant lie on Form 4473 declaring he had never used drugs.
Returning to Central Asia, the take care clause envelopes the abandonment of American citizens. We can’t bring a charge based on his C in C failures. But we can look at Biden’s failure to follow the law. And in this case, we look at the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act. It declares (section 1215) that the President cannot reduce troop levels in Afghanistan below set levels.
He is allowed to waive that restriction by written notice to Congress that includes a detailed explanation of how the reduction serves national security interests. So far, so good. Biden sent a letter on June 8. Supposedly that was all Congress was entitled to.
But section 1215(b) can’t be waived. It requires a detailed report to Congress, which can be to Committees that meet under security protocols, that details risks to our counter-terrorism mission, our personnel, NATO partners, and so on. The list is long and detailed, but the President chose to ignore that part of the law. That is impeachable under the take care clause. It also becomes impeachable because of how the withdrawal has been mismanaged.
The letter Biden sent includes worthless platitudes. “We will withdraw responsibly, deliberately, and safely, in full coordination with our allies and partners. Our NATO allies and operational partners, who have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with us for almost 20 years and who have also made great sacrifices, will now withdraw alongside our forces as we stand by our enduring principle of “in together, out together.””
This promise was worthless, as our troops departed in the dark of night, with no notice to our allies. That is also why, in an unprecedented move, the British Parliament held Joe Biden in contempt.
It may seem a bit arcane to use such a cause to impeach the Occupant. But this is real and substantial, unlike a simple phone call to a foreign President or a riot that was not incited by President Trump. Joe Biden has betrayed our trust in multiple ways. This could be the means to remove him, even if it isn’t because of his other malfeasance. We got Al Capone for tax evasion, not his other criminal endeavors. But with Democrats in the House and Senate, I’m not holding my breath.

Plandemic, Voter Fraud, Afghanistan: All Parts of The Great Reset
If you still consider “conspiracy theorist” to be a pejorative, you’re not paying enough attention.
What do Covid-19, 2020 (and beyond) election fraud, and our disastrous abandoning of American citizens in Afghanistan have to do with one another? They’re all parts of the globalist plan to usher in a new era of Neo-Marxism in a depopulated world. This is The Great Reset unfolding before our eyes, and the only way we can stop it (other than through constant prayer) is to stand together and spread the truth.
Covid-19’s attachment to The Great Reset is obvious, though we continue to post about it daily. Voter fraud is a bit less obvious but nonetheless easy to recognize when we understand that people like Joe Biden, Justin Trudeau, and Emmanuel Macron are pushing to “Build Back Better” under the precepts of Neo-Marxism.
The Afghanistan betrayal in August, 2021, is harder to associate with The Great Reset, but it’s definitely just as attached. We can see this is the unwillingness of the Biden regime to extend the deadline to withdraw despite American lives put clearly in harm’s way. We can see it in the needlessly abandoned military equipment that was conspicuously left intact; disabling a Black Hawk takes minutes but they were given to the Taliban in pristine working condition. Then, there’s the pallets of hundred dollar bills left for them. If you think all of this was just irresponsible governance, you probably think Barack Obama is out of politics, too.
Weakening America’s standing in the world and empowering the Chinese Communist Party and others to engage fully with our enemies in a globalist cabal are beneficial to the architects of The Great Reset, and both happened in one fell swoop in August.
These truths need to be spread. As a conservative network of news outlets, we are swimming upstream against the forces of mainstream media. We are getting canceled across the board by Big Tech. We will continue to spread the truth to millions, but we desperately need help to spread the truth to a wider range of people. This is where you come in.
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.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
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.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we 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.
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,
