One of my favorite political cartoons from the end of America’s War for Independence comes not from the colonies, but from a printer in London. Entitled “The General P__s, or Peace,” it shows an Englishman, a Dutchman, an American Indian, a Spaniard, and a Frenchman all urinating into a pot with their swords and national flags lying on the ground.
In sixteen lines of verse accompanying the drawing, the unhappy engraver bemoans the loss of America and ends with an acerbic final stanza: “Tis vain for to fret or growl at our lot, / You see they’re determin’d to fill us a pot, / So now my brave Britons excuse me in this, / That I for a Peace am obliged to write Piss.”
That always makes me smile. “How on Earth,” I imagine that printer grumbling to himself, “did a ragtag bunch of colonists end up dictating terms of surrender to the world’s pre-eminent empire?”
Now it also reminds me of a popular internet meme juxtaposing the picture of a woman dancing in warm rain under the caption “People Who Trust the Government,” with the picture of her neighbor urinating over their mutual fence and captioned appropriately, “The Government.” So it would seem we Americans have come full circle and are now on the receiving end of our government’s piddling affections.
Isn’t it remarkable how everything the federal government does in the name of “general peace” ends up as a pot of the other stuff that we’re expected to drink right up with a smile? For the life of me, I can’t think of anything helpful or good that has come from Washington’s Leviathan or the D.C. despots that control that ungrateful monster in quite some time.
We’re thirty trillion dollars in debt, and Congress couldn’t care less, as the mental lightweights who compose that less than august body debate not how to pay for any of the extravagant socialist projects they’ve already foisted upon the American people for years, but rather whether a measly two or five or even ten trillion dollars in extra debt will momentarily satisfy their unquenchable lust to saddle the public with ever more extravagant socialist spending bills for years to come.
When it comes to printing money, the Democrats are all about “making it rain,” but what’s falling on Americans’ heads is not at all different from what’s drenching that poor dancing woman.
It is an old truism that all fiat money eventually collapses because governments are unable to exhibit the self-control required to abstain from manipulating and devaluing their currencies over time. Usually, this happens when short-term crises arise, and political power is preserved by expediently spending today what should be saved for tomorrow.
Technically, right now we are neither at war nor suffering from economic calamity, yet the government keeps spending and inflating the prices of ordinary necessities at a pace that would make one believe that global war had been raging for years. During a time of relative peace, Washington has chosen to destroy what little value remains in its legal tender and then expects to win a future war in the Pacific by being able to continue selling IOUs to the same country it expects to fight.
Excuse me, Uncle Sam here, could you spare a dime, so that we might be able to pay for our war against you? No? What do you mean, you’d rather not? These are the strategic thinkers filling our pot of peace today.
When you think of “general peace,” wouldn’t you expect the normal duty of any functioning government to be the promotion of some modicum of national unity? If so, then it has to come as a surprise to those with even modest expectations for government competency to realize that unity is the farthest thing from the minds of those who insist on ruling us for “our own good.”
The FBI is on the hunt for “hate crimes” lurking within every happy suburb while arguing that “white supremacy” is America’s biggest terrorist threat. Believing in personal liberty or inalienable rights is labeled “racist” by a Democrat party uninterested in either, and objecting to the illicit ways both Congress and the Supreme Court have rewritten the U.S. Constitution to serve the federal government’s willy-nilly political impulses at any given moment is condemned as proof that America is secretly run by the Klan.
Black Americans are explicitly told that white Americans wish them harm. Women are repeatedly told that a “patriarchy” exists to prevent their success. Anybody who is not Jewish or Christian is reminded with regularity that Jews and Christians have rigged the nation in their favor. And now even the private decision of whether or not to use an experimental “vaccine” is exploited to cleave Americans.
Nobody in Congress — even those perched out on socialism’s sprouting branches — could look around at all this manufactured animosity the government and a complicit media are selling daily to the American people and think it healthy for our nation. Yet if there is an elected official concerned with the government’s reckless agenda to splinter America into disparate warring groups too busy vying against each other to realize they’re being hosed by those who call D.C. home, nobody is standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial calling for heads to roll.
In the United States today, our federal government spends most of its time telling each American why his neighbor is to blame for what may ail him while spreading animus generally under the guise of “social justice.” What’s that we’re forced to smell from coast to coast? Why, that’s the stench of “general peace.”
It should come as no surprise that Fraud Fauci threatened to cancel Christmas for American commoners if they don’t take their required government shots but seemed pretty enthusiastic about letting any of the million or so new illegal aliens celebrate the coming holidays without restrictions because…science! If microscopic disease is your game, then resettling unvetted illegal aliens around the country without knowing whether any might pose a threat to some unsuspecting community in Maine or Tennessee or Ohio might seem like an epidemiological problem worth pursuing.
If you’re actually invested only in promoting the disease of division, though, “open borders” is the only game in town. And if there is anything the Uniparty in D.C. has made clear for forty years, it is that it will not stop playing with our open borders, no matter how loudly Americans beg. Who cares about uppity Americans’ concern for national security or personal welfare when a more compliant population can be imported to do exactly as D.C. demands?
If only that London engraver from two and a half centuries ago could get a good look at America today. I have a feeling he’d say, “See, you get it now, Colonials. Losing America is no easy thing to stomach. ‘General peace’ isn’t quite so appealing when it’s your nose that’s being shoved in the pot.”
Too Few Are Telling the Truth
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), and Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCO). 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 break away. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken away 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.
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,
