I’ve never been a fan of purity tests. They’re polarizing, subjective, and almost never reveal the truth. A good example is Senator Marco Rubio. Before heading to Capitol Hill, he was the Tea Party’s darling, the future of the party, the guy who was going to head to DC to chew bubble gum and kick ass. But within a year it was clear that the Swamp gave him all the bubble gum he could ever want and the only ass he was going to kick was his own.
What happened? He said all the right things. As a state senator, he seemed to be a constitutional conservative, at least as well as we could tell. The Tea Party groomed him so many conservatives trusted him. Then, he joined the Gang of 8, put his neoconservative ideology in full view, and started voting like a John McCain puppet.
Purity tests generally fail. But we’re stuck with using one going forward. It’s the Trump purity test. Some will be able to beat it easily because they don’t have anything hanging over them. These are the grifters that are going to try to “keep MAGA alive” under their flag of whatever scheme they’re selling. We can expect Tea Party 2.0 to rise in various forms. Some may actually be useful for a while and they’ll be able to pass the Trump purity test. That’s not to say there won’t be good organizations that rise up or form in the wake of Trump’s administration, but nearly all of them will be failures or grifters. Be mindful of that and tread carefully when the “keep MAGA alive” crew comes asking for money.
The Trump purity test may not be able to sniff out the grifters, but it can help us get a handle on the lawmakers and conservative media members who have always hated President Trump. These are the ones who will try to distance themselves from the President. Some will be giddy and sudden like Mitch “Nothing Left To Lose” McConnell and Eric “NeverTrump Okay Fine Trump Wait Still NeverTrump” Erickson. They disembarked from the Trump train faster than Fox News could call Arizona for Joe Biden.
Most will ease their way out. They’ll express regret over the election but, aw shucks, we tried and failed and we have to move on you guys. But over time they’ll rebrand. They’ll rewrite their own personal history. They’ll try to maintain their conservative cred while quietly steering towards their safe space in the Republican Establishment. They’ll eventually stop talking about Trump altogether. These people were happy to cling to his coattails until they thought it was safe to let go.
The Trump purity test is simple. Those who are our true allies as we move forward into a Terrified New World under potential president Joe Biden (I still think a miracle can happen before it’s too late, but I’m not holding my breath) will be the people who do not jump on the anti-Trump bandwagon. For example, anyone who has watched the President’s speech during the January 6th rally knows for certain that he did not encourage or in any way spark the attack on the Capitol. It’s ludicrous to say he did, but somehow a majority of Americans have been sold on the lies.
Anyone who blames Trump for the Capitol riots in any way at all is not our ally.
Another obvious purity test is the election itself. It was stolen. This is crystal clear, so much so that only the totally ignorant or the absolute liars can say otherwise. The evidence is beyond overwhelming. That doesn’t mean your buddy at work who doesn’t know the facts should suddenly be your enemy because he’s skeptical of voter fraud. Remember, this test is for politicians and conservative media, the people who definitely know all about the steal. If they disregard or excuse away the accusations, they’re complicit. It doesn’t matter how much they pretended to support the President for the last four years. If they deny voter fraud, they’re the enemy.
Friends, we’re on the verge of being wiped out in America. I’m not exaggerating when I say they want us to have zero input other than our tax dollars. And why I say “they,” I’m referring to all Democrats and a growing number of Establishment Republicans. They’re opportunists, all of them, and this is their opportunity to rid themselves of the people they hate the most: us.
We have to stop pretending like unity or reconciliation are possible. They do not want to reconcile. They want to eliminate. They want to completely obliterate the movement the President started. And that means making us compliant or making us disappear.
‘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 pacing to be short by about $3700 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.
