Members of a special committee of the Texas state legislature met on Sunday with family members of the victims to present the report, and answer questions that either the families or the community might still have. The biggest issue has been how it took 77 minutes to take out the shooter, and how that delay and a host of other failures cost lives. Despite knowing there were people alive inside the classroom because of 911 calls, they still didn’t breach the classroom. Families were not satisfied with the report.
On top of the release of the report, Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin said in a statement that the city will release all body camera footage from all of the police that had been taken that day. There was an incredible amount of law enforcement on the scene and yet, it still took that long to do anything. In reality, surveillance video of the shooting obtained and published last week by ABC affiliate KVUE and the Austin-American Statesman showed dozens of officers congregating outside the adjoined classrooms where the gunman had fired indiscriminately on students and teachers. The report noted that a total of 376 local, state and federal law enforcement officials responded to the shooting. The city also took action against Lt. Mariano Pargas, who was the acting chief of police on the day of the massacre, placing him on administrative leave. Mayor of Uvalde Don McLaughlin has announced that the city’s acting police chief on the day of the Robb Elementary School shooting has […]
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.
