Conservatives are hard to come by on Capitol Hill. Even when the GOP has a majority, it seems that there are only a handful of actual America-First constitutional conservatives on the floor, especially in the Senate.
But there’s an even rarer breed of lawmaker on Capitol Hill: Those telling the truth about Covid-19 vaccines. Senator Ron Johnson happens to be one of them, which is why I’m happy with his anticipated announcement that he’s running for reelection this year.
Why would I even consider being concerned? Because if he runs, he’s breaking his promise. When he ran in 2010 for the first time, he promised he was only going to serve for two terms. A win in November would launch his third term in office. Normally I rail against politicians who break their word. At such a time as this, we have to be flexible with the good guys because, frankly, there just aren’t very many of them left.
Johnson is one of them. According to The Daily Wire:
Johnson, one of former President Trump’s staunchest allies in Congress, previously declined to say whether he was running for another term in the Senate, but CBS News reported that Johnson is being pressured to run again.
“I never anticipated the importance of continuing to uncover the corruption,” Johnson told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel last month, via CBS News. “But also just this moment, right here, this is crucial that Republicans retain this Senate seat and I think just about everybody I talk to says I probably have the best chance of doing that. And that puts a fair amount of pressure on me to do that. No, I mean, look, when I made that pledge, when my wife (Jane) and I made that pledge, that was our very strong preference.”
CNN also reported Friday that Republicans were “growing bullish” that Johnson would announce he was running again, with one source saying that Johnson could make an announcement as soon as next week. The outlet cited several anonymous sources who said that Senate Republicans have the “distinct impression” that Johnson is going to run again, and “would be surprised if he did not.”
Johnson, for his part, has been mum on the subject. “I’m not ready to say anything,” Johnson told CNN. Asked by the outlet if he was going to announce his campaign next week, Johnson simply said, “I do all kinds of events.”
Johnson stood by President Trump’s side even as others were jumping ship immediately after the 2020 election. He supported those who participated in the January 6 mostly peaceful protests. Most importantly, he’s helped to shine a light on various Covid-19 issues ranging from its origins to early treatments to vaccine hesitancy.
He’s far from perfect. At times, he’s seemed to be a little more moderate than I like in a Senator. But even on his worst days he’s more conservative than 80% of Republicans in the upper chamber, so I would be concerned with getting someone less potent and freedom-minded if he did fulfill his promise to retire after two Senate terms.
I wouldn’t go so far as to endorse him yet. We don’t know who’s in the field at this point. But if he stays in the Senate another six years, I’ll be happy with that result.
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,
