“Divorce usually isn’t a good idea, and that’s especially true of a nearly 250-year-old continental nation.” Rich Lowry, National Review.
This sort of pseudo-historical gibberish is the kind of nonsense that finds its way into a little league public schooling system with its unschooled “educators.” It is one reason there is rising a wave of dissent against the public education of children, and by extension, of the family. It is not just the CRT nonsense, but thoroughly inaccurate history that brings on things like CRT.
And as often as not it is a Tory-Lincolnite-nationalist like Rich Lowry, a typical conservative poser, who worships the national state. This national state was crafted by socialist-style colonial secession deniers such as Eric Foner, and supported by the usual suspects at the “Fox Follies.”
Fox spreads it with the best of them: The Nationalist state gibberish. On October 9, 2021, on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show (Fox), investigative reporter Lara Logan began remarks in response to a question from the Judge.
“You know Judge it’s simple as this, there is a constitution that has guided us since 1776…”
This is the same lame bilge that has been promoted by alleged historian Eric Foner et al for years; also, the ahistorical scribblings of fellows like Rich Lowry and The National Review. It often takes its roots from Lincoln’s greatly heralded (though more histrionically bloviated) Gettysburg Address.
From Menchen’s remarks:
“What was the practical effect of the battle of Gettysburg? What else than the destruction of the old sovereignty of the States, i. e., of the people of the States?” H.L. Menchen
Logan, who is South African by birth, seems a capable and decent sort of lady. That is, she is generally believable and seems to feel honest about that which she speaks. And she seems, for the most part, intelligent and well-read. Sadly, on the point of American history, she apparently read the bilge-speak of guys like Foner and some of the pseudo-historians at Fox or The National Review (at least Logan is not well-read of the MSNBCNN babbling buzz).
However, there was no Constitution in 1776. There were not even Articles of Confederation until 1781. The colonies in 1776 simply seceded, separately, from the sovereignty of Great Britain. They ultimately settled on a constitution of union — a federal confederation — in 1787. There was no nation, except in the deceptive mind of the specious Alexander Hamilton and his “nationalists.”
Hamilton said one thing at the Philadelphia convention and another in New York (his adopted home state—he was not U.S. born)
This monstrously untrue pronouncement of our United States as a single “united state,” so-formed on July 4, 1776, is a perpetual political hallucination. The people who continuously promote it are one, as demented as Joe Biden, or two as dishonest as Adam Schiff. It stems from the same temperament that Abraham Lincoln and his Hamiltonian statist bankers and industrialists used to invade the independent Southern states who had previously been in “UNION” for 73 years with the Northern states, and in a Confederation for six years before that.
The Declaration of Independence was not a founding document. The declaration of independence signed by 13 colonies was a document whereby the 13 declared their status as being free from the state of Great Britain. And now they set themselves as “individual independent states” of the world (the very words of the document). It was a secession statement.
This July 4th declaration was actually a supplement to previously signed declarations of independence by New Hampshire, 12-75, South Carolina, 3-76, Rhode Island, 5-76, Virginia, 6-76, and New Jersey 7-76, two days before July 4, 1776. The dates are dates of the establishment of their individual sovereign governments.
July 4, 1776, was simply a notification to the British that in the current war (April 1775) the independent states were united with their various militias to fight the British. This included the additional eight who joined and signed on July 4. There was no nation. They did not want one. They did not create one! They were willing to shed their blood for their state, in union with others committed to doing likewise.
The Continental Congress was a voluntary body and had only suggestive powers.
There was not even a governing body among the new states. Not until 1781 was a formal confederation formed — much like a NATO treaty agreement. And even that required unanimity of the new states to alter, or support anything. Yes. A unanimous vote.
History has carried through this Lowry-Foner-styled propaganda of a single national state even to the present among many. However, to many others who pursue primary sources, the truth prevails.
It is for this reason we have today a “tri-partisan” as opposed to a “bi-partisan” political landscape. The triad of political persuasion being: One, Democrats (socialists, communists, anarchists), Two, Republicans (anti-republican nationalists, industrialist lobbyists, fake conservatives) and, Three, Conservatives (those who conserve). Those would be the same men who dedicated their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor on July 4th, 1776 to independence for each state, not “the nation.”. Today only the first two would be available for dedication among the Democrats and Republicans: their lives and their fortunes.
The Democrats simply and at least openly push for totalitarian government control (amounting to ownership) of lives and property. They lie by necessity and by free will.
The Republicans believe as Lincoln (and Marx, and the German Forty-Eighters) did in a single national state, which they erroneously (or just lie) claim is what happened, according to Lowry, “250 years ago.”
This group promotes foreign wars, unlimited immigration, and a massive central government — what they call a national democracy. They necessarily call it such since it is clearly not a republic. Typical irony, their party is The Republican Party. There would have been not one of the founders who would not have gagged at the thought of a “democracy.”
Thousands flow illegally across our borders, invading our land (private land by the way) and nothing is done. The comments, usually by the Republicans, are always high-handed from a few who might have read the Constitution. But the comments fade… away, and away.
Texas, with the longest southern border, has two “Honest Abe Senators” and a Golly Gee “Honest Abe” Republican governor. Nevertheless, “armies” of illegals march through while these Democratic-Republicans do nothing but talk.
And the one man honorable enough to stand up and ask about the Republican/Democrat glorious Afghan war calamity was arrested and awaits trial on trumped-up charges. LT. Colonel Stuart Scheller.
Necessarily all of the July 4, 1776 “nation born” nonsense will carry with it the various problems (what is our government, but problems?) existing as well as those it will cause: Bill of Rights violations by the government, local matters drawing federal police (they have begun calling the F.B.I. federal police), court intrusions into law instead of ruling on the law. And of course, there is that old news-friend, the ubiquitous charge of racism.
Ultimately it is the cause of the present Democrat/Republican blend of the so-called left and right. Left of what and right of what? Lowry continues.
“The economic consequences could be severe. The United States of America is a continent-wide free-trade zone, creating a vast domestic market that makes us all better off. Exchanging that for a market Balkanized by state or region would be a major loss.”
Does he mean like Switzerland; or the Union of States up until 1861? Better off than these? Lowry apparently has been peeking into the “mind” of Joe Biden for memories.
Or perhaps he means that the states would be totalitarian governments unless directed by a national government with its righteous and angelic F.B.I, C.I.A., N.I. A. Homeland Security, F.I.S.A. fatherly-protective Patriot Act, and of course its Pentagon Generals and Congressional Departments of everything from energy to transportation. And, of course, there is the (illegal) national bank (Federal Reserve) which is free to print its own money whenever it desires — even to buy and change the climate of the world.
Lowry’s belief, like many who have gotten smacked by the Eric Foner history, is of a nationalist and a part of number two, Republicans (anti-republican nationalists, industrialist lobbyists, fake conservatives) and:
He follows Eric Foner and his “expertise” in American history.
Professor Foner at the time of the fall of the Soviet Union was organizing public statements urging Russian leaders to save the noble Communist experiment by crushing the independence of the Baltic peoples with the same ruthlessness, as he put it, with which “Lincoln crushed the South.”
When the South was crushed, the republic of independent states was crushed. And as long as we accept such historical drivel and B-movie history as articles such as Rich Lowry’s we’ll be conned into EVERYBODY voting, and wars forever.
Conservatives who are truly such (conservative), stand and salute “The Star-Spangled Banner,” not “The National Anthem.” The stars in the flag were originally in a “circle” that depicted “union”, not some nonsensical nation formed 250 years ago.
If Switzerland wasn’t so small those of us who believe in republicanism could go there for our republic.
As to those July 4, 1776, national believers I would say keep your eyes wide open and your guns locked and loaded. But dang! Your national government in Washington loves you — will protect you. Sleep soundly, and instead just put your rifle in the attic. Your “nation” is your friend.
Nationalists, public “educators” and of course the national (misnomer-ed federal) government don’t really care if you wear a mask. They are happy for you to wear a blindfold.
Too Few Are Telling the Truth
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), and Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCO). 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 break away. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken away 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 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.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
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.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we 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.
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,
NOTE: The opinions expressed in the NOQ REPORT are not necessarily those of "Cogny Mann." But it is certain that we share a lot of overlap in our philosophies and worldviews. Also note that the NOQ is a site that has been hit heavily by the cancel-culture that has invaded our world at an alarming pace. This is my effort to help them push back a little by making them a little more visible.
