Today, The Two Mikes were fortunate to again speak with Jose Maria Uribe, who was in Bogota. Mr. Uribe provided us with a graphic analysis and description of the country-wide violence that currently is convulsing Colombia.
The country’s indigenous population — a group that receives substantial non-taxable funding from the national government — is rioting in the style of BLM and Antifa, looting, burning, and attacking people in many cities. As in the United States, the mainstream media and university professors have sided with the subversive and armed native tribes, and both groups are flush with funding from as yet unidentified sources.
What started off as peaceful, legitimate protests about a massive tax increase quickly turned into a radical progressive predicate for anarchy. According to Uribe, “People went out on the streets. People were protested peacefully.”
He continued, “But, again, these peaceful protests were infiltrated and are being infiltrated right now by leftwing activists and leftwing groups from Colombia and internationally to promote violence and to, let’s say prompt a revolution that would, in this case, take down a ‘fascist’ government, which is how they’ve described this democratically elected government, and install in Colombia socialism just as they have in Venezuela and Cuba.”
The Colombian media are doing the country particular damage by falsely portraying Colombia’s democratically elected government and its military and intelligence services as fascist organizations, and inciting the armed rabble in the streets to resist them.
Cuba appears to be actively supporting the rioters, and leftist student groups in New York — associated with the U.S. Democratic Party — caused the cancellation of a scheduled speech in New York City by a former and respected Colombian president in which he going to describe the violence in Colombia and its destabilizing impact on the Country and the Latin American region.
Mr. Uribe also noted that BLM and its allies also are using social media outlets to support the violent rioters in Colombia. According to Yahoo! News:
Protests in Colombia over a proposed tax plan and accusations of police brutality have killed more than three dozen people in the past two weeks. The uprising started late last month when Colombian President Duque proposed a tax hike on the middle class. The government said the money would have been used to ease the strain of the pandemic, but critics say the plan would have caused more than 3 million Colombians to fall back into poverty. The government pulled the plan four days after protests began, but that has done little to stop the unrest in the country. Many are also criticizing the government’s violent response to protesters.
The same tactics that are used in Colombia today are the tactics Antifa and BLM utilize. We may more law and order for now, but only marginally. If we do not act, we will soon be like Colombia which is quickly being turned into Venezuela.
‘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 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.
