In a line that was one where you had to rewind the show a few times to make sure it was real, MSNBC regular and Princeton professor Eddie Glaude Jr. appeared on Monday’s Morning Joe and, in trying to explain Americans’ relatively positive mood nowadays, got off this laugh line: “We cannot underestimate the importance of competence… Competence is actually at the helm .”
For the record, Glaude was reacting to a recent Harvard/Harris poll showing Biden with relatively high approval ratings and the suggestion that Biden’s ratings are due to the country (and specifically cable news consumers) aren’t spending every waking moment fixated on Donald Trump.
Just prior to Glaude’s remarks about Biden’s supposed competency (which came following a brief gas crisis, businesses struggling to find workers to sufficiently reopen, the possibility of tax increases, and rising inflation), host Joe Scarborough provided some inadvertent humor of his own about the poll and what it means for Americans as consumers of news (click “expand,” emphasis added): SCARBOROUGH: I’m the wrong person to deliver this message since we’re the hosts of a three-hour show, Mika and I, about politics, I mean, it’s not good for this country to be talking about politics 24 hours a day. That’s not who we are. MIKA: Or fighting about politics SCARBOROUGH: Or even talking about politics, obsessing about politics: people looking at MSNBC or Fox 24 hours a day. Or CNN 24 hours a day. I feel, like — like, then to Ferris Bueller, what are you still doing here? Like, do something. Get out. you know, and Donald Trump had people talking about Donald Trump, including us, 24 hours. I think this return to normalcy cannot be overrstated and you look […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
