As predictions go, one of my worst ones was last week. I told my wife social media would be annoying for conservatives as their fellow patriots would be constantly lambasting the athletes at the Olympics for displaying their Cultural Marxism in protests against the flag, the anthem, and America itself.
She told me I was wrong. As it turned out, she was very much right.
Her reasoning was straightforward: Nobody’s going to watch it. Granted, she converses directly with fellow conservatives a lot more than I do. I write, she chats. It’s a great dynamic because she gives me insights into the anecdotal sentiment on the street. That sentiment told her none of her friends and only a few wokesters in her family were even planning on tuning in.
Proud to see most of you aren’t even complaining about the Olympics. Instead you’re not watching at all. Our way of taking a knee to regime propagandists pretending to be “woke.” This is the way.

According to Just The News:
The Tokyo Olympic Games opening ceremony broadcast on NBC saw the lowest U.S. television viewership in 33 years, with just 16.7 million viewers, based on NBCUniversal’s preliminary data on Saturday.
Total viewership across all platforms, including the NBC Sports app and NBCOlympics.com, was 17 million, NBCUniversal said in an email, according to Reuters.
While the streaming audience increased 76% from the 2018 PyeongChang opening ceremony and 72% from Rio’s in 2016, the total viewership was the lowest since the 1988 Seoul Games, with 22.7 million TV viewers.
TV viewership of the Tokyo opening ceremony decreased “37% from 2016, when 26.5 million people watched the Rio de Janeiro Games opener, and 59% from 2012, when 40.7 million people watched the London ceremony,” Reuters reported. However, the final ratings data is not yet available for the Tokyo opener, Reuters noted.
There have been the expected critiques of two of the highest profile American teams at the Olympics, the women’s soccer team and the men’s basketball team. Both suffered embarrassing losses despite their perfect kneeling skills on display. But otherwise, the lack of buzz surrounding the Olympics has been deafening.
Unfortunately, NBC will not be feeling that pain despite the poor ratings. They signed up a record number of advertisers for the Woke Olympics. I’m half-tempted to watch just to see who was conned into paying big bucks for poor performance.
As Just The News noted:
NBCUniversal “paid $7.65 billion to extend its U.S. broadcast rights for the Olympics through 2032,” Reuters reported, and “signed over 120 advertisers for the games [this year], more than any other Olympics broadcast.”
In June, NBCUniversal said it “was on track to exceed the $1.2 billion in ads sold for the 2016 Rio Olympics, but declined to say whether it would beat the $1.25 billion sold last year before the Tokyo Games were postponed.”
Despite the drop in viewership in the 2016 Olympics from the 2012 Olympics, NBC earned more than $250 million in 2016, with ad sales increased by over 20%.
It’s imperative for patriots to use our buying power to support those who embrace freedom and equality by giving our business to them. That means we must stop doing business with organizations that embrace Critical Race Theory. The idea of “go woke, go broke,” must become reality. Otherwise, social justice corporations will continue to embrace an ideology that is destructive to our nation.
I feel badly for those athletes who have trained their whole lives and who have no desire to use their platform for woke virtue signaling. They’re being hurt by the handful of idiots who seek social justice kudos.
American Patriots Uniting to Fight Tyranny from, Well, Everywhere
We’re building a new conservative news network. Based on responses from fellow patriots, we’re heading in the right direction.
It may be hard to believe based on what we’re seeing around the nation today, but there are many reasons to be hopeful. First and foremost, the false narrative that most of America hates traditional values or the foundations of our nation are finally being proven false. Despite the best efforts of globalists and Neo-Marxists, patriotic Americans are starting to unify in droves. Meanwhile, Joe Biden can barely muster a half-filled auditorium to deliver his message to the scant few watching CNN and the paid shills in the “crowd.”
The “silent majority” that drove Donald Trump to victory in 2016 and 2020 (yes, he won by a landslide but was robbed along with the American people) is finally starting to realize we cannot stay silent any longer. We used to win with our votes, but those are being stolen. We used to win with truth, but the radical left and their agents in mainstream media, Big Tech, and academia are building a post-truth society to drown out reality. Today, we are waking up to the realization that only through direct action and fearlessly spreading the truth can we overcome the nefarious forces working against us.
We are proud to be working our way up to the tip of the conservative media spear. Our network is growing. We’re establishing strong partnerships with like-minded news outlets and courageous journalists. Even as Big Tech suppresses us, the honest messages they’re trying to quash are finding their way to the eyes and ears of patriots across the nation. With the help of new content partners like The Epoch Times and The Liberty Daily, we’re starting to see a real impact.
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
Some of our content is spread across all of these 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.
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 $2200-$7800 per month. May, 2021, for example, was amazing and we almost broke even. June, revenue was sluggish at best and we had to make up a big difference out of our pockets. But we’re not just trying to get out of the red. If and when we start getting enough contributions to expand, we will do just that. Very few get into journalism to try to get rich and we’re definitely not among those who do. Our success is driven by spreading the truth, profitable or not.
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 Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Time is short. 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. 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,
