The U.S. still has roughly 4,000 degree-granting postsecondary institutions, but the number has been shrinking for nearly a decade. Colleges acknowledge historically low birthrates — lower even than during the Great Depression — mean increasingly stiff competition for fewer students.
On the student side of the equation, academic advisors counsel their advisees to make their college decisions by figuring out “what’s important to them” and selecting schools that “align with those priorities.”
As it happens, COVID has confronted would-be college students who are trying to separate the wheat from the chaff with a new and pressing question: Does the college of their choice side with health freedom — or has it chosen to ignore the Nuremberg principle of informed consent by recklessly mandating experimental COVID shots?
Ignoring this advice, more than 500 colleges and universities so far have decided to impose vaccine mandates for fall 2021.
Institutions of higher education in vaccine-coercive states like California, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York — states that in recent years eliminated or threatened to eliminate vaccine exemptions — are among the COVID vaccine mandate ringleaders.
But the list also includes some surprises, including Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Among Georgia’s 70 colleges and universities, for example, only eight are mandating COVID shots — five of those are HBCUs.
HBCUs’ willingness to mandate vaccines not yet licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) runs contrary to the wishes of many in the Black community. Proportionately fewer Black Americans (34%) have accepted COVID vaccines compared to White (47%), Hispanic (39%) or Asian Americans (62%) — with many citing the lengthy history of medical racism and experimentation as reasons for caution.
Don’t wait until food shortages get REALLY bad before stocking up. Get a three-month’s supply now while it’s still available.
But COVID lockdowns wreaked havoc on HBCU finances, already precarious before the coronavirus. In October, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s strategic award of millions to HBCUs to “bridge medical distrust” perhaps represented an offer “too good to refuse.”
But even at tonier establishments such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania, administrators and professors seem at ease with coercion for students. A law and medical ethics professor at Penn, where endowment assets increased in 2020, callously told prospective students in late June if they are unwilling to get the unapproved injections, they “don’t have to go here.”
To tarnish clear-thinking young adults’ reputations, the mainstream media have been pejoratively associating 18- to 34-year-olds (Gen-Zers and Millennials) who refuse the COVID injections with 1960s-era draft dodgers, calling them “America’s biggest vaccine-dodgers.”
These attacks come despite mounting criticism from all quarters about the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) COVID vaccine advice for Gen-Zers in the 12- to 17-year age group.
In late June, the mainstream medical news outlet MedPage Today (ordinarily a vaccine cheerleader) condemned the CDC’s shotgun recommendations for adolescents as being “all wrong” — particularly with regard to vaccine-related heart problems — stating that the agency’s “all-or-nothing, one-size-fits-all binary approach” relies on “outdated COVID-19 risk rates” and fails to maximize benefits and minimize risks.
If surveys tracking COVID vaccine uptake are any indication, many young adults have reached similar conclusions, weighing the shots’ unproven benefits for their age group against the growing toll of life-altering vaccine injuries.
As of June, one survey research organization reported 60% of adult respondents under age 35 were unvaccinated — including 43% who reported being either “unwilling” or “uncertain.” Young adults in the “unwilling” category have remained “resolute in that decision” over time, and even among uncertain under-35’s, “there is little to indicate recent incentive campaigns have moved the needle with this group.”

It is not hard to understand why some students may feel the need to comply with coercion from their colleges, particularly if the colleges refuse to honor their religious or medical exemptions.
COVID-era research is describing record levels of anxiety and disillusionment among pandemic-era college students grappling — on an almost daily basis — with uncertainty and the perception that there is “no playbook to turn to.”
On the other hand, young people should remember their strength in numbers. Colleges and universities have a substantial economic impact on their neighborhoods and municipalities, including through capital investments and consumption of goods and services — but they need students to drive the economic engine.
As of fall 2020, U.S. college students numbered about 20 million — 85% enrolled as undergraduates, and 75% at public institutions. This constitutes a sizeable economic bloc with the power to push back and invent a new playbook.
This influence is already making itself felt. Some families, for example, have rejected colleges’ precipitous switch to often mediocre online learning (with no adjustment in tuition and fees) and have brought lawsuits, demanding refunds.
Others have deferred enrollment. By March 2021, the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center was reporting a 5.9% drop in overall undergraduate enrollment (compared to spring 2020) and a 7.2% decline among the “traditional” college-age population of 18- to 20-year-olds who represent the largest tranche of undergraduates.
How students can fight back
There is no reason students and families cannot forge a new educational path while shunning coercive colleges. Students can consider one or more of the following options:
- Attend a “freedom college” that has publicly pledged to remain mandate-free. At present, 13 states have indicated they will not require college students to be vaccinated against COVID. Arizona’s executive order not only forbids public colleges and universities from requiring students to receive (or prove receipt of) the shots to attend in-person classes, but also nixes other measures — nullifying a policy at one of the state’s leading universities that would have subjected unvaccinated, on-campus students to a daily health check, twice-weekly testing and mask-wearing both indoors and outdoors.
- Pursue online options. Although some students discovered last year they have a “strong aversion to online learning,” others appreciate the advantages, including in some cases the lower cost. For male undergraduates, spring 2021 enrollment at primarily online institutions was up 3.5% compared to the previous year.
- Develop an individually tailored learning plan. Drawing inspiration from the experiences of K-12 homeschooling families, some students relish the opportunity to devise their own “mix-and-match” educational plan, combining college courses (perhaps online or at a community college) with independent study, mentorship, internships and/or practical training.This approach allows students to hone important academic skills, such as writing, while developing practical skills useful for basic survival and flexibility in a “gig economy” where diplomas no longer guarantee jobs. These skills might range from website development, video editing and accounting to organic gardening, animal husbandry, cooking, carpentry and auto repair. One student who has adopted this approach said he appreciates not being “boxed in” to mind-numbing general ed requirements and welcomes the opportunity to pursue wider interests than most colleges accommodate.
Commenting on HBCU leaders’ endorsement of Black participation in COVID vaccine clinical trials, an assistant dean at North Carolina State University last year criticized HBCU presidents’ abuse of their soapbox, stating “there’s a power dynamic at play.”
This criticism could be broadened to the 500-plus academic institutions stepping outside of their educational missions to not only endorse, but to mandate, risky, unlicensed medical procedures for young people in the prime of life who, based on convincing scientific data, have everything to lose and nothing to gain from the shots.
According to a reanalysis of young adult deaths attributed to COVID last year, the risk of death for Americans in that age group (ages 25-44) was just 0.0125 percent.
The best thing current and prospective students who object to college coercion can do is to vote with their dollars, proving they can and will determine their own education and future in freedom.

New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
Many are struggling in this economy. My family is among them. Please support what we’re doing here and help us to continue to spread the truth Americans need to read and hear.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.

Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder.

Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
