A 74-year-old woman lies on her back, writhing in pain and clearly in distress on a blacktop road in Melbourne, Australia. Two police officers stand over her. Are they coming to her rescue and bringing her to her feet? No, they’re dousing her with two separate streams of pepper-spray while keeping their free hands on military batons in case the tortured septuagenarian somehow springs up in attack mode to wrestle down the pair of twenty-something jackboots “just following orders.”
The woman had been participating in a freedom march against Australia’s COVID-1984 insanity, but the government proved that Grandma was no match for goon squad brute force. Forget chivalry and common sense. If senior citizens refuse to believe that a respiratory illness might kill them, well then, by golly, the authorities will just have to spray them with so much poison that they can’t breathe. That’ll show ’em!
Chalk this incident up to yet another countless example of the globe’s ruling faction losing control over its precious narrative. You can’t scare schoolchildren into wearing face masks for the next ten years in order to “save Granny” while getting caught clubbing and macing Granny in the street. That contradiction just won’t do. Yet contradictions abound, and normal people are opening their eyes long enough to notice. That’s no good for the powers that be.
In describing how to create a commercially successful product, industrial designer Raymond Loewy argued that familiarity must be balanced against novelty in order to appeal psychologically to the greatest number of consumers. Should a new version of an old product become too futuristic or fanciful, too many people will refuse to adapt. His MAYA principle — selling the “Most Advanced, Yet Acceptable” widget on the market — is the golden rule behind every new iteration of most companies’ product lines today.
In the “free world,” Western governments have adopted a similar MAYA principle — “Most Authoritarian, Yet Acceptable” — to slowly assimilate their populations into living with fewer freedoms under more expansive government powers. Giant administrative states filled with unelected bureaucrats who exert enormous control over the minutiae of each individual’s life have slowly grown one tiny regulatory rule at a time until the majority of citizens learned to accept the existence of intrusive government agencies as perfectly normal.
This “frog in the pot of boiling water” approach to implementing “rule by elite” socialism has worked remarkably well for the last century. One decade, free speech and gun ownership and anti-government slogans are considered part of every red-blooded American’s birthright. A few decades later, after the slow but steady chipping away of constitutional protections, entire generations of self-described “progressives” argue that “progress” requires censorship, gun control, and obedience to government authority. Swapping freedom with servitude, one dictate at a time — it’s the MAYA way!
What’s going on today is radically different. The whole “Yet Acceptable” hook for tricking the people into compliance has been tossed out the window for smash-mouth “do it our way or suffer” governance. The end result is that people are finally refusing to adapt to the government’s new rules. Why should Americans be punished for choosing to remain unvaccinated when the federal government is actively transporting unvaccinated illegal aliens for resettlement around the country?
Why should ordinary American workers have their jobs threatened for not complying with White House vaccination demands, while U.S. congressional staffers and the U.N.’s global elite remain exempt? Why must two-year-old toddlers be abused by mask requirements when celebrities party live on television mask-free? Why should any thinking person put stock in mandatory social distancing rules when the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration admits that nobody has a clue why federal health authorities began insisting on six feet of separation in the first place?
Why should anybody trust the government’s recordkeeping of COVID cases and deaths when it has been discovered that even incidents of murder-suicide have been fraudulently included in those numbers? Why should schoolchildren be forced to become test subjects for the pharmaceutical industry’s experimental faux vaccines when schoolteachers are balking at being treated as test subjects themselves?
Why would any American trust the politicized “science” being peddled by the flip-flopping Dr. Fauci when reputable colleagues in his own field accuse him publicly of flagrantly betraying the impartiality of rigid scientific research by engaging in campaigns of intimidation against those who have refused to toe the line of state-sponsored medical propaganda?
A little manipulation at a time over many years — maybe Americans and other Westerners can be expected to comply dutifully with all these counterfactual realities. An avalanche of mendacity and treachery landing on them all at once, and the narrative engineers have real problems on their hands. You knock Granny on the pavement and nearly kill her for “her own good,” however, and the jig is up.
You call Granny a “domestic extremist” and the young men slapping Granny around “heroes,” and people start wondering whether their government is even capable of telling the truth. You wake enough people up with that uneasy thought, and the whole MAYA Project comes crashing down. You end up in a situation where less than half of the country believes that the installed U.S. president is even mentally stable enough to be putatively in charge.
People who formerly had little interest in the everyday goings-on of politics begin asking uncomfortable questions out loud. For instance: How are “free” societies that have embraced medical censorship and state control over the economy at all different from communist China’s? Why are Western political leaders using the specter of catastrophic climate change to make it more expensive to manufacture products domestically while China is gobbling up control over most of the world’s supply chains?
Why are Western corporations shaming citizens for unconscious racism at home while simultaneously profiting from the modern-day slavery powering China’s manufacturing advantage over the rest of the world? Why did ordinary soldiers have to sacrifice for twenty years to prop up a fabricated government in central Asia that couldn’t last two weeks on its own?
Why would anybody sacrifice a son or daughter again to another foreign war when the political and military leadership responsible for their survival are more concerned with identity politics and craven political games? In other words, is there anything to suggest that those in charge have been good custodians of our government? And if not, is it perhaps time for the people to govern themselves?
The drip-drip-drip of the COVID narrative collapse is starting to spiral into something that can no longer be controlled. Western governments have lied so many times that nobody believes anything they say. They have become “the boy who cried wolf” one too many times, and if they’re not careful, they will surely get eaten up in the end.

Too Few Are Telling the Truth
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), and Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCO). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would break away. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken away from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, 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 and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
