Among the left-leaning mainstream media outlets out there, POLITICO has generally been one of the most accurate. That’s not saying a lot within a group that tried to convince us Russiagate was real and the pandemic started with bat soup, but POLITICO generally calls it fairly straight. In their report about Kamala Harris finally going to the border, their opening sentence was comically biased.
“Vice President Kamala Harris is heading to the U.S.-Mexico border this week, amid an unrelenting chorus of criticism from Republicans over her failure to visit there.”
No, it wasn’t “Republicans” calling for her to go to the border. It was coming from both sides of the aisle. Democrats mostly stuck their heads in the sand regarding her awkward avoidance of the border, but those who did mention it said that she should be heading down there. If there was anything bipartisan in the polarized world of Washington DC, it’s that Border Czar Harris needed to go to, you know, the border.
Pressure truly has been relentless as any event where Harris poked her head out resulted in questions from hecklers. They would have come from mainstream media, but Harris has been conspicuously absent from press conferences and any interviews she did only happened if the ground rules were set ahead of time about the topic being taboo.
What finally got her to relent? Representative Jim Jordan had an idea:
“Thank you President Trump for getting Vice President Harris to finally go to the southern border. She would never go without you announcing your trip first.”

President Trump announced his own trip to the border over a week ago. According to the NY Post:
Former President Donald Trump announced Tuesday he will visit the US-Mexico border region with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott at the end of this month to draw attention to what he called “grave and willful dereliction of duty” by his successor, President Biden.
“The Biden Administration inherited from me the strongest, safest, and most secure border in US history and in mere weeks they turned it into the single worst border crisis in US history,” Trump said in a lengthy statement. “It’s an unmitigated disaster zone.”
The announcement comes days after US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released statistics showing that more than 180,000 illegal immigrants were stopped at the border in May, the first time that number had been exceeded in a single month since April 2000.
The White House will downplay Trump’s visit to the border prompting Kamala Harris to finally go, but let’s go ahead and call bologna on that notion. It is a 100% certainty that his announcement helped force her to finally pretend to do her job.
Update: Trump agrees…
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
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 $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth 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 as well.
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.
Thank you and God Bless,
