Finnish President Sauli Niinistö said the Taliban’s conquest of Afghanistan was due to the failure of the West to secure their trademark export, that of democratic government and society in the country. And French commentators likened Afghanistan to the “Graveyard of Empires”, a sobriquet associated with the country.
Niinistö told Finnish outlet Yle that the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan will likely create another wave of migrants coming to Europe and create a safe haven for terrorists. Indeed, the US fiasco sadly highlights the long list of such failures in Iraq, Libya, Syria, North Korea and Ukraine.
In fact, the Biden administration will probably be remembered for creating a Islamic Caliphate in Afghanistan, armed with free US military equipment, after abandoning the country. Biden has meanwhile appeared to be much more concerned about silencing Trump supporters and critics of his Covid policies while enjoying a vacation as the stated American war effort in Afghanistan imploded.
“The lesson we must learn from this is that it is quite difficult to introduce a completely new social structure and social thinking to another place. It takes many generations”, Niinistö said in an interview with the national broadcaster.
The consequence of the US failure in Afghanistan – after the longest war in its history – will be a flood of migrants heading for the EU. Mainstream European leaders, especially in France and Germany, realise that a fresh influx could seriously damage their prospects of being re-elected, since the welcoming mood in the EU has changed. “So we must take a stand on the question of how many refugees Finland and Europe can receive so that good integration can be achieved”, Niinistö said.
Previously, Niinistö pointed out that the Taliban, during their previous reign, were content with staying in Afghanistan, “but at the same time offered terrorists a shelter”. He said that if “the same line continues, the effect can radiate across the globe”.
French politician Philippe de Villiers and René Cagnat, specialist on Afghanistan, told Russian outlet Sputnik that this “withdrawal demonstrated the bankruptcy of America, the bankruptcy of France in following America, the bankruptcy of NATO, and the bankruptcy of France in NATO”.
“What has just happened is the starting point of the decline of American power,” de Villiers noted. He said American hegemony would suffer the same fate as the Soviet Union did after its Afghan debacle in the 1980s. The long and costly war that had led Moscow against the Washington-backed Mujahedin had contributed to the fall of the USSR and the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact.
Former French diplomat René Cagnat, a specialist in Central Asia, agreed with De Villiers. “Afghanistan is a cemetery for American power, as it was for the USSR”. What is happening in Afghanistan “is serious for the Americans”. He added: “Their departure lacks dignity.”
“Americans, like any people, have a sense of dignity and that they might not forgive Biden for it. From there, we could see a bad influence of the Afghan disaster in America itself, the Americans losing confidence in themselves,” he warned.
This war was indeed the longest in the history of the United States since the birth of the country in 1776. In total, the totally futile wars launched in the wake of September 11 will have cost 2 trillion dollars in twenty years, but the overall costs it generated will continue to burden the US. It is estimated that the cost of injuries, pensions and other expenses related to the US mission in Afghanistan will mean total expenses of $6,5 trillion in 2050, according to Marketwatch.
These are truly astronomical sums without Washington being able to show anything whatsoever for their trouble. Quite the contrary, because the US defeat has spurned the revival of Islamic radicals. “ISIS will profit from the triumph of the Taliban,” Arab media warned, according to the Courrier international. The victory of the Taliban constitutes “a vicious boost” for radical Islam.
According to the French specialist on the Afghan conflict, the French had understood soon enough that the Afghans, weary of the war, were “more fed up with us Westerners than the Taliban and that’s saying something”.
“The United States did not understand a thing. They displayed their strategic, tactical, logistical ineptitude. They missed the mark. They don’t know how to wage war now. They did not understand that their model of warfare should have been changed,” the specialist on Central Asia underscored.
Cagnat’s summary was shared by French veterans. “When you see these images of Kabul, it is deeply sad for the Afghan people. It hasn’t budged. It’s really sad that the Afghans are going back to square one,” a veteran French soldier, Antoine Daoust, remarked.
The news of the political earthquake was not welcomed by the family of a French soldier who had died in Afghanistan either. “They died for nothing,” the father of a French soldier killed in the war told France Bleu La Rochelle. “I have always said that our soldiers, the 89 French soldiers, had died for nothing. I confirm, they died for nothing and nor did the 3 or 4000 Americans, nor all the NATO soldiers who died.”
The father of the tragically killed soldier condemned the French intervention in Afghanistan as a “catastrophic mission”.
A 2013 study by the Pew Reasearch Center revealed that 99 percent of the 38 million Afghans agree to Sharia law – the highest figure among Islamic countries in South and Southeast Asia.
AfD member of the Bundestag and Bundeswehr reserve officer, Gerold Otten, said the hostility that had prevailed on the part of large sections of the population towards the Bundeswehr and the other allied forces in Afghanistan. Religion is a huge binding factor there, and the “unbelievers” are the enemy. This bare fact was stubbornly ignored during the 20-year NATO mission, he said. With 59 dead Bundeswehr soldiers and tens of billions of wasted German taxpayers’ money, this has been completely in vain, Otten added. He spoke on July 25 at an AfD event in Unterschleissheim, well before images of the US disaster began circulating on social media.

The Dangers of Speaking the Truth Diminish If We Work Together
It’s becoming harder and harder for patriots to ignore the deep suppression of truth that’s happening in America today.
In all of my years in journalism, I have never received as many threats or been attacked by big companies like Google and Facebook as I have in 2021. I’d say that ever since we started covering widespread voter fraud, government-endorsed Pandemic Panic Theater, vaccine cover-ups, Critical Race Theory, and the various Neo-Marxist and Satanic agendas at play, I’ve been targeted more in months than the entirety of my life prior.
Speaking the truth is getting harder with so much censorship and suppression rampant. Prior to 2020, I was not a “conspiracy theorist” or an “anti-vaxxer,” but if there’s one thing the onslaught of exposed lies have taught us in the last 18 months, it’s that we cannot take what we’re told by the “arbiters of truth” at face value. There’s an agenda behind every message, a narrative driving every story, and a series of gigantic cover-ups designed to keep the masses in the dark.
This is why we’re building a network of news outlets that are willing to go against the narrative and expose the truth. We need help. 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.
I’ve said much of this before. From time to time I reframe this request for assistance by taking the most relevant message of the day and adjusting the story accordingly. We’ve discussed this network in previous articles. Now, it’s time to talk about help. First and foremost, we need financial assistance detailed below. But we could also use more writers who are willing to volunteer their thoughts for the sake of spreading the message. Those who are interested should contact me directly.
As far as money, we’re looking better than we have in the recent past, but 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,
Big Pharma’s Five Major Minions that Everyone, Vaxxed or Unvaxxed, Must Oppose
This is not an “anti-vaxxer” article, per se. It’s a call for everyone to wake up to the nefarious motives behind vaccine mandates, booster shots, and condemnation of freedom.
The worst kept secret in world history SHOULD be that the unquenchable push for universal vaccinations against Covid-19 has little if anything to do with healthcare and everything to do with Big Pharma’s influence over the narrative. Unfortunately, that secret has stayed firmly hidden from the vast majority of people because of the five major minions working on behalf of Big Pharma.
What’s even worse is the fact that Big Pharma’s greed is merely a smokescreen to hide an even darker secret. We’ll tackle that later. First, let’s look at the public-facing ringleaders behind the vaccine push, namely Big Pharma. But before we get into their five major minions, it’s important to understand one thing. This is NOT just an article that speaks to the unvaccinated. Even those who believe in the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines must be made aware of agenda that’s at play.
Let’s start with some facts. The unvaccinated do NOT spread Covid-19 more rampantly than the vaccinated. Even Anthony Fauci acknowledged the viral load present in vaccinated people is just as high as in the unvaccinated. This fact alone should demolish the vaccine mandates as it demonstrates they have absolutely no effect on the spread of the disease. But wait! There’s definitely more.
This unhinged push to vaccinate everyone defies science. Those with natural immunity may actually have their stronger defenses against Covid-19 hampered by the introduction of the injections which fool the body into creating less-effective antibodies. Moreover, the push to vaccinate young people is completely bonkers. The recovery rate for those under the age of 20 is astronomical. Children neither contract, spread, nor succumb to Covid-19 in a statistically meaningful way. What they DO succumb to more often than Covid-19 are the adverse reactions to the vaccines, particularly boys.
All of this is known and accepted by the medical community, yet most Americans are still following the vaccinate-everybody script. It requires pure cognitive dissonance and an overabundant need for confirmation bias to make doctors and scientists willingly go along with the program. Yet, here we are and that should tell you something.
Before I get to the five major minions of of Big Pharma, I must make the 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 GivingFuel page or via PayPal. 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.
Who does Big Pharma control? It starts with the obvious people, the ones who most Americans believe are actually behind this push. Our governments at all levels as well as governments around the world are not working with Big Pharma. They are working for Big Pharma. Some are proactive as direct recipients of cash. Others may oppose Big Pharma in spirit but would never speak out because they know anyone who does has no future in DC.
This may come as a shock to some, but it’s Big Pharma that drives the narrative and sets the agenda for the “experts” at the CDC, FDA, WHO, NIH, NIAID, and even non-medical government organizations.
Most believe it’s the other way around. They think that Big Pharma is beholden to the FDA for approval, but that’s not exactly the case. They need approval for a majority of their projects, but when it comes to the important ones such as the Covid injections, Big Pharma is calling the shots. They have the right people in the right places to push their machinations forward.
That’s not to say that everyone at the FDA is in on it. Big Pharma only needs a handful of friendlies planted in leadership in order to have their big wishes met. We have seen people quitting the FDA in recent weeks for this very reason. The same can be said about the other three- and five-letter agencies. Too many people in leadership have been bribed, bullied, or blackmailed into becoming occasional shills for the various Big Pharma corporations. Some have even been directly planted by Big Pharma. That’s the politics of healthcare and science that drives such things as Covid-19 “vaccines.”
