This time the health news is real. Joe Biden has COVID.
The White House announced Wednesday that the president has tested positive for COVID-19, and is experiencing “mild symptoms.”
Biden has been put on Paxlovid, an antiviral drug that lessens the severity of the illness. Of course, Biden has been double vaxed and boosted.
Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre says Biden “will isolate at the White House and will continue to carry out all of his duties fully during that time. He has been in contact with members of the White House staff by phone this morning, and will participate in his planned meetings at the White House this morning via phone and Zoom from the residence.”

Biden’s handlers have taken great pains to shield the 79-year-old high-risk senior citizen from COVID. For example, before his trip to the Middle East, Israeli officials were told the president would not be shaking any hands. (He ended up doing so anyway.) And of course, he spent the 2020 campaign in his basement, with his scarce public appearances requiring great efforts at social distancing. Remember the circles? One Day After Biden Cancer Gaffe
The news of the COVID diagnosis comes one day after Biden ignited a frenzy by saying he has cancer. Specifically, “That’s why I and so d*** many other people I grew up with have cancer … ” The White House quickly corrected the record, stating Biden was referring to his past bout with skin cancer.
We join the rest of the nation in praying for Biden’s quick recovery from the virus, and that there are no lingering effects. Al Perrotta is the Managing Editor of The Stream , chief barista for The Brew and […]
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.
