It’s over. The United States military has officially, completely withdrawn from Afghanistan right on schedule. Adding insult to injury, U.S. General Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. flat out lied to the world by saying “very few hundreds” of U.S. citizens were left behind and “at least 2,000 hardcore ISIS fighters” are now roaming Afghanistan.
Reports from the ground in Kabul and throughout Afghanistan indicate there are thousands of Americans stranded by the Biden regime. General McKenzie is basing his “very few hundreds” comment on those who have gone through official channels to specifically declare they want to leave and who have demonstrated they are American citizens. But many, many more were either unable to go through official channels as they evaded the Taliban or could not sufficiently prove they were American citizens. If they couldn’t fax a passport to the Embassy, they weren’t counted, according to sources at the State Department.

Reactions to General McKenzie’s speech were harsh on social media:
Unbelievable. General Kenneth McKenzie just referred to the Taliban-controlled Afghanistan as "our generous host nation."

General Mckenzie is trying to put lipstick on the pig that is America's failure in #Afghanistan. He is just the latest losing general in a long line of them. There are apparently more than 200 Americans still in Kabul, abandoned by us.

General Kenneth McKenzie calls Taliban-controlled Afghanistan “our generous host nation."
It’s almost unfathomable what has happened to America so quickly under this administration!
— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) August 30, 2021
Meanwhile, the Taliban is giddy, firing rounds into the air. Normally, they would not waste ammunition so brazenly, but they now have access to plenty of ammunition left behind by our military:
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene expressed deep shame in what has happened in Afghanistan and how the sentiment has spread to America.
No man left behind.
That’s always been the rule.
We just left.
We left them behind.
What the hell is wrong with this country? #ImpeachBiden
Impeach them all.

As we reported earlier, reports of busloads of Americans being turned away just in the last 24-hours contradicts the White House’s numbers:
Seven Busloads of American Women Refused Entry to Airport, Now in Taliban’s Hands
The nightmare scenario in Afghanistan is worse than the vast majority of Americans realize as mainstream media refuses to report the truth from the ground. Making the disinformation worse is the White House’s attempts to hide the facts in an obvious PR campaign. With thousands of Americans stranded and now being hunted, the Biden regime is focused on optics.
A report being ignored by the White House and media tells of seven busloads of American women who were not allowed to evacuate. They are now in Taliban custody and, according to the Special Operations contractor reporting on the ground in Kabul, likely dead. Journalist Emily Miller relayed the news from her contact:
“We’re dealing with Kabul. There’s 7 buses of female American citizens. The CG refused to open the gate. We have a congressman with us and he had the state department reach out. MG Donahue refused. 10 minutes ago the females were taken by the Taliban. They are likely dead now.”

This could have all been avoided, as the article by a Department of Defense staffer details below. We should have left Afghanistan long ago, but leaving now or at any point in the past should have been done AFTER securing safe passage for ALL American citizens who do not want to be subjects of the Taliban. The fact that the Biden regime rushed through everything without considering the safety of Americans in Afghanistan is absolutely infuriating.
American men will be killed. American women will be turned into Taliban-babymakers. This is a disgusting, shameful move by the Biden regime and Gen. McKenzie has the gall to lie about the numbers we abandoned.
The following article was submitted by a current Department of Defense employee who wishes to remain anonymous due to repercussions. We have confirmed the identity of the author as well as their credentials.
Fearing Repercussions from the Regime, DoD Staffer Pens Anonymous Article Lambasting Joe Biden
We’ve all been watching the catastrophe in Kabul that is the result of Joe Biden’s order to abruptly pull-out our remaining troops before bringing home our citizens, the people who supported us and $85 billion in military equipment. It’s all-over our televisions. We haven’t been able to miss it.
Yes, it is good that more than 100,000 people have been evacuated. Still, if one thing is clear, it is that at least several hundred American citizens have been abandoned behind enemy lines where they likely will be systematically hunted-down by the Taliban. They will be murdered, enslaved for the rest of their lives or used as hostages to embarrass and extort the US.
It didn’t have to happen this way. The US Government and our military have both the knowhow and the ability to execute an effective evacuation. I know because I was a civilian in a foreign country when an evacuation was planned and came close to being executed.
In 1975 I was a civilian not associated with the military and living in Seoul, barely 30 miles from the border with North Korea and their long-range artillery, when Saigon fell. The North Koreans had been threatening to invade South Korea since the armistice ended hostilities some 20 years before. Military commanders began taking the threats more seriously. The South Korean military and the 70,000 American service members in the country went on heightened alert and worked to finish their defenses against an invasion.
The U.S. Embassy also went on high alert and began working to prepare American civilians for possible evacuation. The embassy undertook to identify who was where and how to contact us if hostilities began. Consular officials met with us to lay out their plans for how we would be delivered to safety. Plan A was for us to report to pickup points where busses and trucks would take us south to an airfield from which we would be flown to Japan and then home. We were allowed only one suitcase and it could weigh no more than 20 kg.
If hostilities broke-out more quickly and that evacuation plan was not executable, Plan B called for us to assemble next to the soccer field to await pickup by helicopters on their way south after ferrying troops and supplies north. It was thoroughly planned and the American military would be responsible for our safety. I remember well the words of one consular official who told us “We will do what it takes to make sure we give you all the warning that is possible and none of you are left behind.”
We were on 24-hour alert for almost three weeks and spent several days on a shorter alert where we had to be prepared to leave in as little as one hour at any hour of the day or night. Then the North Korean bluster diminished and life went back to normal.
So when I look at the Kabul debacle I am shocked and embarrassed to see that things have been done so differently. There are plenty of analysts on TV who are dissecting the timeline and the orders given that have produced the situation we are all witnessing on live TV so I will not add to their words. Still, knowing our president gave orders that betrayed at least several hundred Americans to be left behind makes me both sick to the stomach as I fear for their safety and incredibly angry. The veterans I know as neighbors and co-workers and my son, who served three tours in Afghanistan, are livid beyond words.
The first and foremost responsibility of a president is the protection of the citizens they serve and Joe Biden has failed to do that, not just on a colossal scale, but on a cosmic scale. As commander-in-chief he has violated one of the sacred tenets in the Soldier’s Creed which states “I will leave no man behind.”
There is no place in hell hot enough for such a traitor. Lady Liberty is crying for those he is leaving stranded. The Taliban are already playing it for advantage so I have no doubts they will leverage the situation to make things as embarrassing to America as possible.
There is no place in hell hot enough for such a traitor.
Commentators are already talking about how much damage the Kabul catastrophe is damaging Joe Biden’s presidency and America’s standing in the eyes of our allies and enemies. How badly will he be damaged? Ask former president Jimmy Carter.
Carter was confronted by a variety of problems at home that he never handled well. He went all-in on environmentalism and had solar panels installed on the White House roof that never worked. To conserve energy he asked people to turn-down the thermostats in their homes in the winter and wear sweaters, or turn them up in the summer and turn-off their air conditioners or open their windows.
The economy was in turmoil with high inflation eating-away at consumer buying power. Mortgage rates skyrocketed into double digits. At one point the prime interest rate hit a whopping 21%. The national economy almost came to a standstill. Commentators used terms like “stagflation” and “economic malaise” to describe the results of Carter’s policies.
If that wasn’t bad enough, in 1979 the Shah of Iran was overthrown by an Islamic revolution that installed radical cleric Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in his place. His firing squads went to work purging the nation of anyone in a position of authority who had supported the Shah. Then on Nov. 4, 1979 “students” overran the US Embassy in Tehran and took 66 Americans as hostages.
Fourteen were later released but 52 were held for a total of 444 days. The Iranians played the crisis for everything they could to embarrass and humiliate the United States. ABC News launched their “Nightline” program to report about the story on a daily basis. Carter’s popularity that had already taken a beating from the poor economy dropped even lower. Then when it seemed things couldn’t get worse they did when an attempted hostage rescue mission failed and eight service members were killed in a remote area of Iran.
Carter knew he was far behind in the polls going into the 1980 election but even he was surprised by how resoundingly he was defeated by former California Governor Ronald Reagan. Carter carried just six states and Washington, DC and went down to defeat in the greatest electoral college up to that time: 489 to 49. Adding a final insult to his injury, the Iranians released the hostages on January 20, 1981 and the news broke just moments after Reagan was sworn-in.
Burdened by that legacy and faced with Reagan’s success, Carter’s vice-president, Walter Mondale, went down to the all-time record landslide defeat when he was able to carry only his home state of Minnesota and Washington, DC.
Still, the hostage crisis triggered something amazing: a renewal of American patriotism. If there’s one thing we Americans will not tolerate it is another nation abusing our citizens and the hostages gave us a focal point around which to rally. Flags sprang-up in front yards, on doors and in the windows of businesses from coast to coast. People sang “The Star Spangled Banner” with greater gusto and some even learned that it had more than one verse.
Americans also chose to display their patriotism and loyalty with the hostages in another, very visible way. The 1973 hit song “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree” by the group Tony Orlando and Dawn struck an emotional chord in the hearts of millions and became a theme song driving a surge of renewed patriotism.
In the lyrics a man just released from prison is coming home and wants to know of the woman he loves still wants him. The sign he is looking for is a yellow ribbon tied around the oak tree in the front yard, only when he arrives there are a hundred yellow ribbons tied around it. Americans took inspiration from the song and yellow ribbons appeared wherever they could be tied. When the released hostages were given a ticker-tape parade through Manhattan American flags and yellow ribbons could be seen everywhere.
The State Department is telling us only a few hundred Americans are left in Afghanistan but their number have been fuzzy at best so the one thing certain is that Americans will be left behind. While we wrestle with the political fallout from the Kabul debacle it clearly is time for those of us who believe in America to come together and refresh our commitment to our nation, our neighbors and the principles on which our nation was founded.
So I invite you to do two things; proudly fly our Stars and Stripes to remind our neighbors that we still are Americans and tie yellow ribbons in obvious places to show our solidarity with those who are being left behind.

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,
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
