Editor’s Commentary: We do not censor our writers. Period. I am publishing this piece by Dr. Ted Noel because I respect his opinions and his friendship. With that said, I still support Donald Trump should he choose to run. I believe he has learned his lesson about the people he surrounds himself with and will better navigate The Swamp in his second term. Experience is the best teacher and his abysmal experience with The Swamp should make him much more careful next time.
To those who will ask, “If you support Trump why would you publish this?” I’ll say that we are not leftists. It’s the left who suppresses opinions that are contrary to their own. Ted makes his case with sound logic, and while I disagree I will not quash discourse for the sake of “the tribe.” If you are like me and support Donald Trump, then make that case in the comments. If you only want to read from publications that do not disturb your sensibilities, there are plenty of outlets better suited to your tastes. With that said, here’s Dr. Ted…
Before you throw a MAGA hat or a Let’s Go Brandon flag at me, let me make one thing perfectly clear. I voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020. If he is the nominee in 2024, I’ll vote for him again. But when we consider him in the context of the next election, we must employ the retrospectoscope as I did months ago. After all, hindsight is 20/20. And, as Santayana said, “He who does not learn from history is doomed to repeat it.”
Donald Trump promised to Drain the Swamp. Instead, he drowned in the Swamp. While he got a lot done, he thought that hiring “experts” and trimming around the edges would be enough. Instead, the ooze flowed in from every direction, stifling every attempt to actually get big things done. He was even sabotaged by those closest to him. 45 was properly upset when VP Pence announced that his role on January 6 was merely ceremonial. Yet he had my analysis of the Constitution passed on by Trump attorney Jenna Ellis that would have had him properly pass the election back to six contested states for their Legislatures to review. This was bolstered by an opinion letter from a past Inspector General of the Department of Defense (who happened to quote my AT piece). Yet Pence stabbed the President in the back without so much as a “by your leave.”
VP Pence was far worse than this single event. Scott Atlas MD repeatedly points out a serious flaw in Pence’s behavior. As Chair of the COVID response committee within the White House, Pence politely listened to Deborah Birx and Anthony Fauci simply declare that some particular action should be taken. Dr. Atlas would then present a stack of studies showing that the proposed plan was exactly the wrong thing to do. The VP would then thank everyone and follow the completely unscientific plans of Fauci and Birx. Trump railed at this damaging behavior, but didn’t call his own hand-picked expert in for consultation. That would have revealed to him the evil in action, and he would have had a chance to shut it down. Instead, Pence, the consummate politician, allowed two incompetent virologists to hijack America and destroy the MAGA presidency.
It is this urge to call in experts, like he did with the Wollman Skating Rink, that makes Donald Trump a poor selection to Drain the Swamp. The Donald is simply too trusting, and it bit him in the unmentionables. Rather than a competent business manager, we need an assassin in the White House. You simply cannot be polite when the task at hand calls for explosives rather than scalpels.
I’ve stated before that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis should be our candidate, and am still of that opinion. Florida has its own Swamp (not the Everglades!), and DeSantis has proven himself adept at navigating it. Cato ranks Florida as #2 in freedom in the US, and hundreds of thousands of refugees from socialism come here every year, turning Florida red.
Regardless of the candidate, it’s necessary to cut off the head of the snake. Without that, all is lost. In the White House, the first task must be to fire everyone not involved in the logistics of the edifice. Gardeners, cooks, and housekeepers would be safe. Then trusted lieutenants could be brought in to do the minimal amount of work that actually needs to be done. Hundreds of staff are not needed. Ron Paul famously suggested that if elected, he’d fire all but the essential sixteen.
Next, cabinet departments need to have “Chainsaw Al Dunlap” type heads. Any failure to ask “How high?” after being told to jump should be grounds for immediate dismissal. Of course, since Civil Service rules make actual firing difficult, various other methods would be employed. For jobs requiring security clearance, that clearance can be revoked. Clearances are completely discretionary, and without one, the employee can’t do his job and may not even be able to enter the workplace. Top that off with a transfer to the Department of Irrelevancy in International Falls, Minnesota, and you have a nice recipe for a resignation. To sweeten the pot, the miscreant might be offered a few months of severance pay to resign without all the fol-de-rol. Of course, once that employee is gone, there should generally be no need to fill the chair. Government agencies are famously overstaffed already.
We can’t leave this station without noting that many executive branch agencies are positively harmful to our freedom and well-being. Every regulation should be examined for proper adherence to law and the Constitution, with failing grades resulting in rescission. While space does not allow a long discussion here, obvious departments for elimination are the Department of Education and the National Institutes of “Health.” NIH funds over 40% of all medical research, and you don’t get money if your work doesn’t support the orthodoxy of the Swamp. DOE mires millions in debt while universities get rich.
Finally, sunlight is indeed the best disinfectant. FOIA requests are routinely denied, slow walked, and redacted. FOIAs should be the highest priority for any agency. They should be responded to in full, with zero redactions, within the thirty day statutory limit. Staff who object should be summarily terminated for insubordination. The public has a right to know. They can’t trust their government if they are kept in the dark.
With the house-cleaning in the civilian agencies underway, every general staff officer above two-star rank should be immediately retired. Those officers are primarily political, and as General Milley demonstrated, their compliance with the lawful orders of the Commander-in-Chief is not reliable. Their security clearances should be immediately suspended, preventing them from sharing inside information with the New York Slimes and other establishment organs of ill repute. Choosing the replacements would be “interesting,” but proper review, including information from the ranks, would allow Below-the-Zone promotions of effective officers.
Donald Trump was right that the people need to be the rulers of this nation again. Unfortunately, he’s not well suited for the task ahead.

Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
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), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). 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 make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free 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.
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.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD 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.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
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,
