Many conservative and Christian individuals and groups have been cut off – mostly without warning – by their banks or financial institutions in recent months. America First activist Lauren Witzke recently was the target of a campaign by Wells Fargo. The conservative Gab site also has been in the bull’s-eye.

While mostly left unexplained, the indications are that those financial corporations are taking the actions because they disagree with the conservative messages being promoted.
So Christian motivational speaker Nick Vujicic, the founder of Ministry of Life Without Limbs, himself the target of an anti-Christian bank campaign, has announced the formation of a pro-life bank.
“I got kicked out of a bank, with no warning, it froze my credit cards, froze my debit cards … they did a review of me as a client and they don’t want anything to do with me,” he revealed on a recent episode of EpochTV’s “Crossroads” program, run by the Epoch Times.
He noted that many banking corporations “give philanthropically under social responsibility … to causes that provide [to] the biggest abortion clinics in America.”
The new project won’t to that.
“But we will actually fund 50 percent net profits to Judeo-Christian line nonprofit organizations that are biblically aligned and doing the will of God, according to our belief systems,” he said.
He said the new business operations strategy known as Environmental, Social and Governance considerations is at fault.
Those manipulations, he said, allow a person to be evaluated based on whether he or she goes along with a business’ nonprofit causes or is environmentally friendly.
“If I own a V12 twin-turbo [car], which I do, I’m actually then harming the environment. I get categorized as a second-class citizen. It’s going to be called carbon credits. And we’re going to be categorized [on] how harmful Nick is on the environment, socially based on what he believes, and who he gives to, what he doesn’t give to,” he explained.
The Times report explained, “According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), ESG considerations are the ‘yardstick for stakeholder capitalism’ and will be essential for corporate success in the future.”
Among factors that ESG considers are greenhouse gas emissions, size of land used, water consumption, air, and water pollution.
The bank’s website explains it is not yet operational, but plans to be a full-service FDIC approved operation.
He was, without explanation, born without limbs, but at age six was vacuuming rugs for an allowance and by age 17 moved into the financial world, buying a home as an investment at age 19 and getting his Bachelor’s degree in financial planning and investments and accounting at age 21.
Today he lives in Dallas, Texas, with his wife Kanae and four children.
He also is a highly sought-after motivational speaker. He’s been featured on BBC, 60 Minutes Australia, CBS Sunday Morning, USA Today, People Magazine, ABC News, The Glenn Beck Program TLC, LA Stories, and more.
He’s actually not alone in his class, as there are others with the same or similar disabilities who also have helping others as their goal in life:
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.
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.
Thank you and God Bless,
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
