By middle of August, voters in California will receive a recall ballot asking two simple questions: Should current Governor Gavin Newsom remain in office, and, if not, who gets the job? Recalling a sitting governor is a difficult task but not impossible. Most constituents are angry at elected officials for one reason or another and like to reassert a tiny bit of power in the election booth. So after enough Golden Staters determined that Newsom is ripe for an ousting because of his handling of the pandemic, voters now have to bounce the guy and pick a successor. Sounds easy enough, right?
Article by Sarah Cowgill from Liberty Nation.
After All The Hubbub — Should We?
A new poll released by UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies/Los Angeles Times shows the electorate is closely divided on whether Newsom should be led to the gallows. Forty-seven percent of “likely” voters support recalling Newsom, while 50% claim to be opposed — uncomfortable numbers for both the governor and the laundry list of wannabes waiting in the wings. And the September 14 voting day fast approaches.
The wavering mindset of California voters nonetheless speaks of promise to Republicans. Turnout is critical for Democrats to keep Newsom in office, and as Republicans make up about a third of all voters – extremely motivated voters – that could lead to an upset. According to Mark DiCamillo, director of the Berkeley IGS Poll, “The governor’s in jeopardy among those most likely to be voting.”
DiCamillo went even further by using the “C” word to make a dramatic point:
“There’s greater complacency among Democratic voters. Nearly all of them think Newsom is going to survive this, and I think that’s holding back some of their voters from thinking it’s important to vote. Republicans are much more confident that they think they can turn the governor from office.”
Ah, “complacency” is where the trouble begins in California. But is it good trouble?
The Wannabe List So Far
It’s the second question now causing heartburn for Newsom’s declared opposition. The line of hopefuls for the highest office in California has recently grown to four decent prospects, although a whopping 40 candidates could appear on the ballot. Workhorses John Cox, a successful businessman, and former two-term Republican Mayor Kevin Faulconer of San Diego are sitting pretty at 10% support as potential new occupants of the Sacramento mansion. And Caitlyn Jenner, the 1976 Olympic Gold medalist, holds her own at 3% for her moderate approach.
But a Johnny-come-lately guy with enormous name ID is conservative radio talk show host and syndicated columnist Larry Elder, who may be the biggest threat. Entering after a court battle, he has a solid 18% support.
It’s Not What But Who You Know?
Will it come down to who you know or what you’ve accomplished? Republicans haven’t won a statewide California election since 2006, and to say they may be prematurely licking lips in anticipation is an understatement. Democratic Governor Gray Davis was successfully recalled in 2003 by the California electorate, who then installed Arnold Schwarzenegger.
If 50% of voters say “yes” on question number one, and Newsom is tossed, the winner just needs to top the list in votes counted. Percentages be damned.

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,
