There have only been two U.S. Presidents in modern history who did not respect the United States military. Even Bill Clinton had enough respect for them to honor them publicly from time to time. But Barack Obama often lambasted his own troops as Commander-in-Chief and now Joe Biden is doing the same, only worse. He doesn’t just insult them. He disrespects them, which is arguably much worse.
The latest example may come across as a minor thing, but considering the circumstances it’s clear that he wanted this to be about him, not them. It was their special day as the latest graduated class for the Coast Guard were honored to have the President of the United States speaking to them. Biden had to make it weird.

He was busy butchering a quote from the teleprompter, saying how the Coast Guard is “the hard nucleus around the Navy form in times of war.” That’s not quite the line, but they understood what he was trying to say. Still, they didn’t clap, and Biden took offense.
“You are a really dull class,” he said. “I mean, come on man, is the sun getting to you? I would think you’d have an opportunity when I say that about the Navy to clap.”
Conservatives on social media were not impressed.

Joe Biden just had a Jeb Bush-like moment when no one laughed or clapped in response to his joke.
It's literally painful to watch. pic.twitter.com/qtzgXqv7xN

Biden after telling a joke that falls flat at Coast Guard Academy’s commencement ceremony:
"You're a really dull class. Come on, man.”

Ironically, Vice President Dick Cheney quoted the same line — properly, this time — back in 2008 at the same Coast Guard Academy Commencement Ceremony. According to the transcript from the speech, he was met with applause following the quote. We can assume based on Biden’s track record of plagiarizing past speeches that he pulled his quote from that speech and expected the same applause that Cheney received.
At the 2008 ceremony, Cheney said, “There’s a saying in your line of work — that the U.S. Coast Guard is the ‘hard nucleus about which the Navy forms in time of war.’ (Applause.) I’m not sure what the Navy thinks of that. (Laughter.)”
It was impossible to imagine anyone disgracing this nation from the office of President more than Barack Obama or Jimmy Carter, but Joe Biden has done so in less than four months.
‘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 pacing to be short by about $3700 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.
