Discern Report is the fastest growing America First news aggregator in the nation.
Let’s start the obligatory statement of my stance on Russia. They are our enemy. I condemn them for this invasion. I believe Vladimir Putin is a thug and an oppressor of people. His sins are greater than Zelensky’s.
The Ukrainian people are under extreme duress. The Russian invasion has displaced at least ten million people, killed approximately a thousand citizens and a growing number of soldiers, and destroyed buildings across the nation. Cities have reportedly been leveled. It’s understandable that President Volodymyr Zelensky would initiate martial law to try to keep some semblance of order in the midst of chaos.
But two of his actions over the weekend pertaining to martial law make absolutely no sense, at least for the benefit and safety of his people. It’s only when we examine how the moves benefit his corrupt government that we realize why the press-proclaimed “hero of democracy” made these moves.
First, he consolidated all media outlets into a single state-run news provider. According to Reclaim The Net, he has established a “unified information policy”:
Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelensky, has signed an order that forces the combination of all national TV channels into one platform, citing the importance of a “unified information policy” under martial law. Reuters reported that this move comes as Ukraine is currently in the midst of a state of emergency due to Russia’s ongoing military attack on the country.
“Ukrainian privately owned media channels have hitherto continued to operate since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24,” the outlet reported, adding that it wasn’t yet known when this rule would start to be enforced.
Ukraine has four main public broadcasting channels, UA:First, UA:Culture, UA:Regional, and Rada TV. The move follows several changes to the media landscape that have come about as a result of the ongoing Russian invasion. Many countries have blocked Russian-state affiliated outlets such as Russia Today and Sputnik.
In February 2021, President Zelensky revoked the license to a handful of pro-Russian channels ZIK, NewsOne, and 112 Ukraine.
The original play to remove pro-Russian channels from the airwaves is somewhat justifiable. I completely disagree with it, but as an American who enjoys a free press whose only major drawback is massive progressive bias, it’s easy for me to want to see all available news presented to the people. Shunning pro-Russian channels is counterproductive in my book, but at least a valid argument can be made for doing it during a time of war.
Consolidating all news under the government’s thumb and sending out a unified message is extremely dangerous. It’s not something that can be unwound easily when the war is over and I sincerely doubt they’ll even try. Once power is taken by authoritarians, wresting it back is very challenging in a free country, let alone one as corrupt as Ukraine.
The second move has absolutely zero justification in a so-called “democracy.” As Sundance described at The Conservative Treehouse:
Following the ‘democracy must be destroyed in order to preserve it model‘, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has dissolved all political opposition parties and consolidated all media.
There’s a word to describe when a single national leader takes control over all media platforms and dissolves the political parties of his opposition. However, apparently, we are not allowed to notice that because Russia “invaded a sovereign democracy” or something.
This move must not be dismissed because it is not a temporary solution for their current needs. In fact, it does absolutely nothing to harm Russia itself and adds even more fuel to Vladimir Putin’s fire. Just as with consolidating state-run media to a single source, disbanding political opposition is not something that can be reversed once the crisis subsides. Zelensky has used the cover of the war to consolidate his own stranglehold over power in the nation.
Both of these moves are not done by someone who is championing freedom, democracy, or anti-corruption principles. These are the moves of a tyrant, and they explain a lot about why Zelensky has failed spectacularly at ending the conflict.
As I said before, Putin’s sins are greater than Zelensky’s. This is his war and the end result will be squarely on him.
With that said, Zelensky’s sins are more nuanced but should not be minimized for the sake of blasting Russia and Putin. In many ways, Zelensky is helping Russia either take Ukraine or start WWIII by not doing what it takes to bring this conflict to an end. If Zelensky were the statesman and “hero of democracy” that corporate media sells him as, then he would have done two things already.
First, he would have negotiated the exact terms that would compel Putin to end the invasion. If those terms were acceptable, the war would be over. If they were not acceptable, then Zelensky should have gone to the international community with details of his terms so he could demonstrate Russia as being completely unreasonable.
But he hasn’t done that, and there’s a reason for it. Zelensky isn’t done with the war. He still has moves to make, Zoom meetings to attend, and videos to release to the world. He’s building up his reputation and he loves it. No, I’m not accusing him of intentionally prolonging the war. I am accusing him of not taking the proper steps to end it. Either he’s an idiot (he’s not) or he’s a narcissist who loves the spotlight and the nearly universal praise he’s receiving from the whole world.
Zelensky will make his rounds on the international stage. He will make moves at home that consolidate his power. He will push the “war of attrition” narrative to force losses on Russia’s military and his own people while attracting Western powers to intervene. And when it’s all over, he’ll have either helped start WWIII by not stopping Russia when he had the chance or he will be victorious and become the most popular man in the world. That’s his plan and the vast majority of people seem to be playing along perfectly.
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 six sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- 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.
