There’s an important set of optics for both the Democratic Party and CNN. They have been pushing so hard to force the nation into a state of panic over COVID-19 that they must religiously practice mask-wearing and social distancing any time the cameras are rolling. When they’re not rolling, the rules change, as Joe Biden and Anderson Cooper demonstrated at last night’s CNN townhall. LOL! @CNN, @AC360, and @JoeBiden are pretend practicing social distancing at tonight’s #CNNTownHall, but watch what happens when they think the cameras are off and you can’t see them anymore! Frauds! pic.twitter.com/eGeiJHonic — Reagan Battalion (@ReaganBattalion) September 18, 2020 It’s not the first time they fake their compliance to coronavirus rules. There are numerous examples of both Democrats and mainstream media nannies pretending to be concerned about social distancing and mask wearing, only to change tunes the moment they believe the cameras were off. It just happened the day before to CNN White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins. Democrats and their mainstream media lapdogs are putting on a show. It’s nothing more. Every time they think the cameras are not rolling, they’re fast to revert to normal activities. Their supposed coronavirus fear is intended to make YOU afraid. COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat. Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it. When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that. Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance. The best way NOQ Report 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 need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated. 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. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. 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. Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going. Check out the NEW NOQ Report Podcast. American Conservative Movement Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer spiked fears ahead of President Donald Trump’s Thursday rally in Michigan while downplaying the same concerns over former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign event near Detroit on Wednesday. “It’s distressing,” Whitmer told CNN’s Anderson Cooper of Trump’s upcoming rally, going on to outline Michigan’s rules on mass gatherings that require masks in order to steer clear of super-spreader events. “We anticipate that he will be descending on this state and perhaps encouraging people to come maskless … I would love to see the leader of our country embrace masks and encourage people to do the right thing.” When it came to Biden however, Gretchen offered no such concerns, even after wrongly accusing the Trump campaign of discouraging mask use. According to Michigan Live, which offered on-the-ground coverage of the Trump event, “campaign staff handed out masks and hand sanitizer at the Thursday rally. Attendees had temperature checks performed before entering the venue, but people who attended were notified they could be exposing themselves to risk of infection.” “We’ve got Joe Biden coming into town tomorrow. I know that they are scrupulously following the science. They want to keep their supporters and the general public safe,” said Whitmer. “I want to do everything I can to keep the people of this state safe.” Michigan's Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer says she sees the presidential race tightening. "The big question people are gonna ask is 'are you better off today than you were 4 years ago?'"she says. "…For the working class in this state… the answer is unequivocally 'no.'" pic.twitter.com/HwrkECsdxo — CNN (@CNN) September 9, 2020 The apparent absence of masks and adherence to social distancing have been a primary target of criticism from reporters covering the campaign events, even as the same self-righteous journalists excused the very same conduct by the mass protests for social justice that they actively cheered. Hmm… @Acosta has no commentary on DC protests but complains about Michigan peaceful protests… 🤨 pic.twitter.com/VlRh81bANM — Abigail Marone (@abigailmarone) September 10, 2020 Earlier this week for example, The Hill attempted to indict the absence of masks from a Trump rally in North Carolina by using a photo featuring every supporter in the background sporting face coverings. Rather than correcting the story, the outlet merely swapped the photo. “Hey this photo disproves our false narrative. What do we do?” “Delete that tweet and choose a photo that doesn’t show the crowd!” pic.twitter.com/mLTscqiifL — Matt Wolking (Text TRUMP to 88022) (@MattWolking) September 9, 2020 Trump has openly mocked Democrats and legacy media for openly celebrating the mass protests sweeping the country while condemning gatherings they didn’t like, such as the president’s campaign events. “We decided to call our rallies ‘Peaceful Protests,'” Trump told a roaring audience in Winston-Salem. The campaign has begun to distribute “peaceful protestor” signs at events. Signs at Trump’s New Hampshire rally that read “peaceful protestor” and “this is a peaceful protest” appear to be made by the president’s campaign. pic.twitter.com/2GGWVOYufq — Courtney Norris (@courtneyknorris) August 29, 2020
