Pennsylvania is an important swing state for one reason and one reason only: It’s the difference between a tight win and a landslide. I know what you’re thinking. Am I openly predicting President Trump is going to be reelected? Yes. Why? Because the polls are wrong and biased. Mainstream media is wrong and biased. And I can see with my own eyes the excitement level for President Trump is exponentially higher than any excitement, if you can call it that, for Joe Biden.
There is, of course, the cheating factor, but I am hopeful the radical left has put more of their eggs in the post-election revolution basket rather than the steal-it-for-Joe basket. They can practically smell the local businesses burning already and they need a Trump win in order to drive the masses (at least what they hope will be the masses) to revolt. That’s not to say they support President Trump for the sake of revolution. They’re just not willing to bend over backwards for someone like Joe Biden who represents the systemic racism they use as their predicate for existence.
As I’ve said for months, the best chance this nation has for recovery from both coronavirus lockdowns and radical progressive rioting is for President Trump and the GOP to win big. A close win won’t do be as effective. In fact, a close win will likely do more damage in the short term as it will give the Neo-Marxists the fuel they need to get even more sane Democrats out on the streets.
Beneath it all, Pennsylvania is the key. It represents 20 electoral votes, and by my count that’s the difference between breaking the real magic number of 300 electoral votes to give it “landslide” labeling and just squeaking past the necessary 270 to win. This is why the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s endorsement is so huge. It doesn’t matter whether people in Pennsylvania read the endorsement or not. The fact that those who haven’t voted yet are hearing from a respected local publication that they’re breaking from tradition and making an endorsement will resonate.
This is bigger than the NY Times endorsing Joe Biden or even the NY Post endorsing Donald Trump. Both were expected and the people yawned. But the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette doesn’t make presidential endorsements. The last time they did was 1972.

This newspaper has not supported a Republican for president since 1972. But we believe President Trump, for all his faults, is the better choice this year.

“He gets things done,” the editorial board said. That’s not just a generic message, either. Pittsburgh is a city known for getting things done and Pennsylvania is a state that relies on those people to keep their antiquated economy afloat. Perhaps more importantly, President Trump wasn’t expected to compete well in Pennsylvania until the last month. Early polling showed “Scranton Kid” Biden with a commanding lead. But since the debates and the fracking flip-flops Biden and Kamala Harris have made, the polls have tightened. Add in Hunter Biden and all Pennsylvania needed in order to vote red again was a little push.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette just supplied that push, and state Democrats are worried.

Here’s my map. I know it will be critiqued to oblivion by people much smarter than me (“you think Trump will win Michigan!?!?!?”) but I’ll leave it here and let you all pick at it until you’re heart’s content.
Pennsylvania is the difference between a close win for President Trump and a 300+ electoral vote landslide. That will be important post-election when the task of dealing with revolting domestic terrorists comes to the forefront.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
