Many are struggling in this economy. My family is among them. Please support what we’re doing here and help us to continue to spread the truth Americans need to read and hear.
Senator Ted Cruz made a terrible mistake by calling the January 6 mostly peaceful protest a “terrorist attack.” He knew he made a mistake by the time he left his Senate committee hearing and checked social media. His phone was likely blowing up with friends asking what he was thinking. Then, he made it worse by trying to explain it all away the next night on Tucker Carlson’s show. Instead of explaining it away, he had the most popular host in America call him a liar to his face.
It was calculated, and his calculations were apparently off. Or were they? On this episode of The J.D. Rucker Political Report, I dove into the issue and why I believe he not only intended to say what he said, but that he was prompted to do so by nefarious forces working against America’s best interest.
First, let’s get something out of the way immediately. Ted Cruz is the most precise politician of the modern era. He doesn’t say anything in prepared statements without knowing exactly what he intends to convey, and even in off-the-cuff remarks he pulls from a vast internal library of practiced talking points. This was a Senate committee hearing about how to prevent another January 6 event from happening, so we know that this was prepared.
Some have speculated about what he was trying to accomplish. I don’t think he was trying to accomplish anything for himself, at least not by saying what he said. Instead, I believe he was either bribed (likely) or blackmailed into doing the bidding of the Republican Establishment, and more specifically the GOPe mega-donors who support RINOs and hate President Trump.
By “bribed,” I’m not saying he was paid off. He was bribed with the promise that if he invokes the word “terrorist” and steers the conversation the way they want it steered, then they would back him for the 2024 presidential nomination after they get Trump out of the way. What they didn’t tell him, or at least what he didn’t expect, is that he essentially ended any hope of being the nominee in the foreseeable future by causing such a stir with his words.
It’s conspicuous that he said it twice. I think that was a prerequisite of the demands made of him. They needed to get one of the most conservative lawmakers on Capitol Hill to echo the “bipartisan” talking point that January 6 was really, really bad. That will go along with others pointing the finger at Trump for all of it occurring. They want him out of the way and they used Ted Cruz to try to make it happen.
In the second half of the show, I dove into The Liberty Daily and some of the outstanding sources we use to populate the conservative alternative to Drudge Report. Some of them you’ll know, others you will hopefully find as new to you.
We have a hard enough time fighting the leftists. The GOPe in the mushy middle is another force trying to prevent American from being great again, and Ted Cruz is now embroiled in their machinations.

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.
