Vice President Kamala Harris was in Germany this weekend attending a high-level meeting at the Munich Security Conference. Her mission was to boost the transatlantic security alliance to strategically deter Russia from invading Ukraine.
Following her meetings, Harris held a presser. The following is the gist of some of her key answers.
When asked if sanctions could have any leverage considering the claims (from her and Biden) that Putin had already made up his mind to invade Ukraine. She replied that the sanctions were the “greatest sanctions, if not the strongest, that we’ve ever issued”. She added that “diplomatic path still being open, the deterrence effect, we believe, has merit.” When asked how a war in Europe would affect regular Americans. She replied that “America stands for her principles.” She added that “it requires sometimes for us to put ourselves out there in a way that maybe we will incur some cost.” She cited energy costs, perhaps she meant the price of fuel, but added that steps were being taken to mitigate what that cost might be if it happens. For both of the above questions and all through the presser, Harris offered no details. There were no insights into the strategy developed to prevent Putin from invading Ukraine. Nobody was expecting a full revelation, but at least some key details.
Every answer was like a salad of words indifferently tossed together. There were long pauses between words and slight stutters which made it appear that she was ill-prepared and hence was winging it. Her usual staccato manner of speaking continued, making her sound like a speech-to-text mobile application.
Her body language lacked poise or confidence which is often the product of being ill-prepared. She failed to project any determination, or resoluteness which was key to communications in these situations such as these.
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.
