Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) revealed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has been punishing employees who harbor conservative viewpoints. Whistleblowers from within the federal agency who reached out to him attested to the FBI’s suppression.
Jordan, a ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray on June 7 about the allegation. He pointed out how the agency had been “retaliating against FBI employees for engaging in disfavored political speech.” The congressman’s letter served to follow up a May 6 letter that elaborated on how the FBI suspended the security clearances of several employees for simply exercising their First Amendment rights.
“Since our May 6 letter, we have received new protected whistleblower disclosures that suggest the FBI’s actions are far more pervasive than previously known. Multiple whistleblowers have called it a ‘purge’ of FBI employees holding conservative views,” wrote Jordan. (Related: The FBI is now mainly a weapon against Republicans.)
The Republican cited two instances of FBI employees being singled out for harboring conservative opinions, specifically those about the Jan. 6 Capitol siege.
The first whistleblower initially found his security clearance suspended after sharing his opinion that “the FBI was not being entirely forthcoming about the events of Jan. 6.” The bureau later escalated this to an indefinite suspension from duty without pay. The whistleblower, who served in both Iraq and Kuwait, was highly commended in the military and had a clean record with the bureau prior to the disciplinary actions. According to the FBI, the first whistleblower “espoused conspiratorial views” and “promoted unreliable information which indicates support for the events of Jan. 6.”
The second whistleblower, who has since left the bureau, said they faced retaliation for criticizing the FBI in an anonymous employee survey circulated days after the Jan. 6 Capitol siege. Just like the first one, the second whistleblower had a spotless record until he expressed his opinion. The bureau allegedly escalated an adverse personnel action against the second whistleblower.
“We remind you that whistleblower disclosures to Congress are protected by law and that we will not tolerate any effort to retaliate against whistleblowers for their disclosures,” warned Jordan.
FBI being weaponized against political foes
“We are conducting oversight to ensure the FBI is not retaliating against employees for exercising their First Amendment rights and engaging in disfavored political speech,” the letter noted. Aside from Wray, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Inspector General Michael Horowitz were also furnished with copies of the letter.
The GOP lawmaker subsequently appeared on the Fox News program “The Ingraham Angle” on June 7 to talk more about the matter. He revealed that a total of six whistleblowers have come forward to the House Judiciary Committee. Four of these – including the two whistleblowers in the letter – attested to the FBI’s retaliatory action against those espousing contrary views regarding the events of Jan. 6.
“We now have had six agents come forward as whistleblowers, [with] four now regarding Jan. 6. That is a concern to us,” he told program host Laura Ingraham.
Jordan also mentioned the whistleblowers he described in his June 7 letter to Wray. He confirmed that the first whistleblower was indeed a “decorated Iraq War veteran being run out of the FBI. His allegiance to the country is being questioned because he had the gall to say something that offended the FBI leadership about the Jan. 6 investigation.”
Regarding the second whistleblower, the Ohio congressman added the “same thing [was happening] to them simply because, on an anonymous questionnaire, they said something that the leadership disagreed with them about Jan. 6.”
“It’s the weaponization of government against [its] political foes. [That is] exactly what’s going on. This is happening and it is as wrong as wrong can be,” remarked Jordan.

Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
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
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
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple 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.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, 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,
