When Barack Obama came into office, there was a lot of anxiety among conservatives. We knew his agenda was radical (though it seems tame compared to the current administration’s) and with control of the House and Senate, he would have at least two years to commit as much progressive wanton destruction as possible. And we were right. He got Obamacare on the books, which has plagued us in multiple ways ever since.
Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach was there. He fought side-by-side with other conservatives to fight an empowered Democratic federal government the only ways available: Through states and through the judiciary. That’s the beauty of our constitutional republic. We have multiple layers of checks and balances to slow or even stop a runaway federal government.
On the latest episode of NOQ Report, I sat down with Kobach to discuss the Alliance for Free Citizens, a grassroots organization that is forming a resistance against the radical policies coming from Washington DC today. They are taking on the federal government in much the same way conservatives fought the Obama administration.
“The best form of resistance was coming from the states,” he said. “So this organization works through the states, but works with grassroots — you know, the real engine of the organization is the grassroots people who push it — to use the states as bases of resistance against what Biden is doing, which in many respects is far more radical than what his mentor Barack Obama did.”
The group is working with states by giving them legislative packets that make it easier to get properly worded bills on the floor to contend with DC’s overreach. Of particular interest is the Covid vaccine and election integrity, though there are others available as well.
“For example, we have model legislation,” he said. “Seven bills are up on our website… I would encourage people who are watching this to email them, send them, mail them, whatever, deliver them to you state legislators and say, ‘Hey, we need these in our state.'”
For those of us who reside in blue states, it may be time consider moving. The Biden administration and Democrat-led Congress are working quickly to push forth the most radical federal agenda this nation has ever seen. Their policy proposals mimic California and New York, two states that are currently in the throes of implosion from political perspectives. If red states do not step up, there may be no safe haven.
“We’ve got bills running in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Kansas, Nebraska, a number of other states as well,” he continued. “One has already become law, others have passed the committee stage, others are about to get their committee hearings.”
As readers, viewers, and listeners of the NOQ Report know, we take vaccine tyranny very seriously. The push by governmental and private entities at nearly every level to bully us into taking the Covid vaccine is non-stop and getting stronger. There are already organizations mandating Covid vaccines for participation, included the entire University System of Maryland. Alliance for Free Citizens is fighting back.
“One is a ‘Covid Freedom Act,’ what we call it,” he said. “It says that there will be no Covid passports in the state. The way you do that is you say any private entity that wishes to do business in your state may not require a vaccine for any admission, for any ticket, for any service, to be a passenger on a flight, otherwise that business is prohibited from doing business anywhere in the state.”
Here are overviews of the seven bills available to download on their website:
Secure and Fair Elections (“SAFE”) Act
- Proof of U.S. citizenship required to register to vote.
The Advance Ballot Confidence (“ABC”) Act
- Reining in and securing absentee voting, including prohibiting acceptance of ballots after election day, imposing rigorous signature and witness requirements, restricting the duration of the absentee voting period, requiring justifications to receive an absentee ballot, and creating chain of custody rules.
Protecting Individual Liberty During a Pandemic:
The COVID Freedom Act
- Reining in COVID crackdowns, including preventing mandatory vaccinations, preventing overly broad shutdowns of business, keeping houses of worship open, and keeping state capitols open so the public can attend and observe their legislative sessions.
Immigration Enforcement and Jobs Protection:
The State Immigration Total Enforcement (“SITE”) Act
- Immigration omnibus bill, including multiple provisions that legislators may select: prohibiting sanctuary cities, taxing remittances by illegal aliens to their home countries, requiring police to check the immigration status of those they pull over on the road (e.g., AZ SB 1070), denying bail to illegal aliens arrested for crimes, denying public benefits to illegal aliens, and prohibiting businesses from deducting as business expenses wages paid to illegal aliens).
The Legal Workforce Act
- Making E-Verify Mandatory (drafted to track the Supreme Court decision in Whiting v. Chamber of Commerce).
The Teaching Racial and Universal Equality (“TRUE”) Act
- Prohibiting educational institutions and organizations that teach critical race theory from receiving state funds or state contracts.
The Family Assistance and Incentives Reform (“FAIR”) Act
- Incentives to get married and have children – and strengthen our wider society.
If we are to stand a chance of surviving the next two years of Democrat control at the federal level, we must turn to the states and judiciary for relief. The Constitution was written to hold government back. Now more than ever, we must invoke it.
‘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 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 Report 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 on track to be short by about $4100 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.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
