AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) were both on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper Sunday to talk about bipartisanship.
They covered a variety of topics. Manchin on Build Back Better: “That bill no longer will exist … my biggest concern and my biggest opposition: it did not go through the process … it should’ve gone through the committee.” pic.twitter.com/mhTjvxDIra — Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) February 6, 2022 Manchin reiterated for anyone who didn’t get the message yet that Build Back Better – as conceived – was dead, “that bill no longer will exist.” He’s already made it very clear, but some Democrats have refused delivery on his refusal. He said his main objection to it was that it didn’t have Republican Senatorial Committee input on it.
While talking, the two politicians had a moment that is surely going to tick off the Democrats. Manchin said that he would be “endorsing my dear friend, Lisa Murkowski .” Joe Manchin drops a little news on CNN’s State of the Union: “I’m endorsing my dear friend Lisa Murkowski. Alaska could only be so lucky to have her continue to serve them.” pic.twitter.com/tgZWGnBxUF — Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) February 6, 2022 “She knows I feel that way, too, very strongly,” Manchin told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “It’s hypocritical to basically work with a person day in and day out, and then when they’re in cycle you’re supposed to be against them just because they have an R or D by their name. If these are good people I’ve worked with, we have accomplished a lot, why in the world wouldn’t I want to work with them and continue to work with them? “It doesn’t matter if I’m a Democrat, and they’re a Republican, or vice versa,” he added.

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 Giving Fuel. 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
- 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.
