“We were energy independent one year ago, now we are at the mercy of OPEC, gasoline is selling for $7 in parts of California, going up all over the country, and they are taking oil from our Strategic Reserves. Is this any way to run a country?”
~President Donald Trump
With the situational stability of Ukraine gradually deteriorating by the day and America’s former energy self-sufficiency now diminished by dependency on OPEC and Russia, it has become more important than ever to assess the primary reasons for how the U.S. has found itself in this precarious predicament. Under the Joe Biden’s hasty and feckless decision-making, the United States has restricted its own sources of oil distribution, with the most detrimental example being the decision by the Biden administration to close off the Keystone XL Pipeline traversing from Alberta Canada to oil refineries in Cushing Oklahoma and the U.S. Gulf. On what was an $8 billion project, Biden’s decree to revoke a key cross-border presidential permit caused the owner of the pipeline, TC Energy, to halt its efforts to complete the 300-mile-long pipeline in what had been a meandering 10-year process.
In an NPR article , the Vice President of the American Petroleum Institute, Robin Rorick, lamented how it was “unfortunate that political obstructionism led to the termination of the Keystone XL pipeline. This is a blow to U.S. energy security and a blow to the thousands of good-paying union jobs this project would have supported.” The move also marked a blow to Canada’s economy, which, last year, was the largest exporter of crude oil to the and petroleum products to the U.S. The pipeline building process had been revived under President Trump in 2017 and was clear to cross through Nebraska, following a favorable decision by the Nebraska Supreme Court.

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.
