If there is a better way to contrast the difference between the people of Ukraine currently fighting for their freedom and Americans, who are upset when someone doesn’t believe they are non-binary tree-nymph s, well, I don’t know what it is.
Ukraine is being battered by Russian forces attempting to seize the country. Young men and women are fighting from street to street in some places to hold off the hordes. It is a literal hell on earth right now for the people of Ukraine. And what are Americans dealing with? Well, they know what’s going on, and that makes them sad.
Andee Tagle of NPR writes, “The reality of conflict is always a shock to the system.” Yeah, you think? But is it really a shock when your system consists of picking up an overpriced latte from Starbucks, casually walking down the street to your cozy office, and at the end of the day, having only to worry about whether or not there will be something good to watch on Hulu? You’re joking, right?
Tagle’s list reads like something a university might hand out to students in preparation for finals or something: breathe, get moving, nourish yourself, stay connected, or sign off. I read that list and face-palm so hard.
“When the news is scary, it’s easy to get lost in our own heads. Reach out to loved ones instead.”
I want to meet the squishy wimp who takes this advice, runs to his dad with tears in his eyes, and says, “I can’t take what’s going on in Ukraine! It’s just so stressful!”
I do find it a little funny, however, that Tagle includes signing off as an option. Can they start applying this rule to everything they don’t like, everything that triggers them? It took a new war breaking out for […]
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.
