America went from a reality TV star in the White House to a a man riddled with dementia wearing masks to a virtual meeting. But if national politics is not enough of an embarrassment, the California recall effort may soon be the latest subversion of a meaningful political effort. The campaign to recall Gavin Newsom has been a long effort that finally collected enough signatures to move forward. Bruce ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner has thrown his hat into the ring. Here are the top five reasons, in no particular order why he is a waste of an opportunity.
Evangelicals won’t vote for him
It’s no secret that in order to oust Gavin Newsom, a Democrat Governor of California, every Republican will have to turn out. Evangelicals represent a large swath of the Republican voting base. For the Republicans to nominate a transvestite, this would hemorrhage a key base for their vote. Politically this is the equivalent of tripping over dollars to save nickels.
Many Evangelicals found Trump’s character to be untenable in 2016, outside of the crowd of virtue signalers that had no qualms about the previous GOP Presidential nominees. These Republicans, including myself, faded Trump in 2016 due to character and policy concerns. Bruce Jenner invites more of these results, considering his character is vastly more flawed than that of Donald Trump’s. Not only is he an active transvestite, but there is also the manslaughter he committed free of consequence. I do not imaging the John MacArthur crowd in Sun Valley turning out for Bruce Jenner, and it give woke Evangelicals all the in roads to depress Evangelical turn out. Without Evangelicals, Bruce Jenner can’t win.
He would kill Republican Black outreach
To some success, Donald Trump made gains among Black men that was previously thought impossible. A transvestite candidate in California would kill those efforts within the state and nation at large. During the Democrat Primary, Pete Buttigieg was disproportionately unpopular among Black Democrats, and I think it’s rather obvious why. Pete Buttigieg is a woke white creation.
Hispanics won’t turn out for him
Again this is similar reasons to the other two. It’s worth noting that Hispanics respect a certain bravado from politicians. Hence, this was one of the reasons, Donald Trump found success among Hispanics, despite or with a tough immigration rhetoric. Bruce Jenner is a male former athlete dressing a woman, a complete deconstruction of masculinity. This would diminish Republican gains among this demographic.
He’s not actually conservative
While the other reasons focus on his ability to turn out necessary votes, this reason focuses on his ideology. In Hollywood, conservative has a different meaning than in real life. Other Hollywood “conservatives” include Matthew McConaughey and Clint Eastwood. McConaughey is considering running for governor of Texas, but he is left of center but not a cultist. Clint Eastwood, as you may recall, was at the Republican National Convention in 2012 where he gave a most cringeworthy performance. He would later endorse Michael Bloomberg in 2020, perhaps the most overtly pro-CCP candidate. There is a certain out of touch nature among Hollywood Republicans. Californians learned this lesson with Arnold Schwarzenegger, who governed like a soft Democrat. Being Conservative is more than opposing high top marginal tax rates.
Moreover, what are we trying to conserve? The answer to this question alone disqualifies Jenner from serious consideration.
There are far better options out there. The best option is to make the primary about Gavin Newsom with a candidate that runs a limited issue campaign without making it about themselves. Bruce Jenner is incapable of this. But there are competent conservatives in California, and they are revving their own campaign engines. Bruce Jenner is a sure way gift Gavin Newsom a massive political victory.
‘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.
