It’s a shame that Facebook is such a sham of a company that it’s impossible to locate a source for the letter below. We found a secondary source that reposted the letter, but the identity of the original poster is a mystery.
This crossed my desk through a Tweet by Representative Chip Roy. Sadly, the comments to the thread focused on the anonymity of the poster rather than the message itself. This is a shame because the content of the post is rock-solid. It doesn’t matter that we do not know who wrote it. It really doesn’t even matter if it was truly written by a Southwest Airlines employee or not. The message to CEO Gary Kelly is crystal clear and 100% spot on. Whether he was handed the letter, finds it on Facebook or Twitter, or reads it here, the truth of this letter is undeniable.
THREAD – “Open letter” to @SouthwestAir CEO Gary Kelly – written, I am told, by an SWA employee & posted to Facebook. It was sent by a friend (who didn’t have link). God bless this employee. #DoNotComply #StandUpForAmerica – “The Big Choice” – READ… (1/15)

Reports indicate Southwest Airlines, which has been plagued with flight cancellations due to “weather” (aka employee protests), has essentially bowed to the Biden-Harris regime and their pseudo-mandate for medical tyranny intended to force as many Americans as possible to “choose” to be vaccinated for Covid-19 if they want to continue to operate in society. The letter to the CEO offers an alternative path in which the company joins patriotic Americans in fighting the mandates.
If someone wants to get vaccinated or not, it should be their choice. The narrative that this is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” is demonstrably false as mountains of data indicate the vaccines neither protect people from getting infected nor do they prevent people from infecting others. They may be viable as a mitigating factor against severity of one’s illness, but even if that’s true it belies the predicate for a mandate.
Vaccinated or not, anyone can contract Covid-19, Vaccinated or not, anyone can spread Covid-19. The mandates are authoritarian plays that will not prevent or even slow the spread of the disease. This is about segregation and pressuring people who do not want to be jabbed for whatever reason. That is an unAmerican notion prima facie.
Here is the letter. Again, I don’t care who wrote it. The only thing that matters is who reads it, and the leadership of Southwest Airlines must be among those who take the message to heart…
The Big Choice
It’s time to embrace the national discussion instead of finger-pointing who’s to blame over last weekend’s meltdown. The elephant in the room IS the mandate and the termination of thousands of employees and disruption of air travel after Nov 24th.
Amazingly, Southwest Airlines finds itself at the center of what is likely one of the most pivotal moments of our lifetimes and nation! There is no going back to “normal” or whatever you want to call pre-Oct 4th when the mandate was announced. There are two paths. Two choices, that senior leaders can embrace as a company.
Choice 1: “There’s nothing we can do about the mandate”
We continue to uphold and force compliance with the mandate. Thousands of employees will make their stand, lose their jobs or be sidelined by exemptions across all departments. Our holiday schedule will be a complete disaster and make last weekend or any other operational meltdown seem insignificant in comparison. Those that remain will bear the brunt of endless JAs, passenger furor, and what remains of the Southwest Airlines brand will be utterly destroyed in a matter of months.
An emboldened Federal Government WILL pass laws requiring all passengers to be vaccinated for air travel. As of Oct 11th, according to the Mayo Clinic, 56.6% of the country is fully vaccinated. A struggling recovery will be decimated as a significant percentage of our customers, the unvaccinated, are sidelined due to continued government overreach. All of Southwest’s plans for next year – new hires, new aircraft, route expansion – come to a screeching halt as the company tries to remain viable. Too harsh? Maybe… but not unrealistic in the slightest.
Choice 2: “We reject the lie that there is nothing we can do about the mandate”
We stand united in opposition of the mandate and drive change in our government.
There is a great awakening taking place across this country to the dangers posed by tyrannical mandates and the American public is rallying to our cause. No one should be faced with the loss of their career and economic destruction over a mandate. This is America, we do not have a king. We are a nation with a government purposefully encumbered with checks and balances. That system is in peril.
Humorously enough, we are the company of flag ties, “Freedom One”, and pride ourselves on the type of principled people with a “Warrior Spirit” that we hire. We had an entire ad campaign with the tagline “you are now FREE to move about the country”. Perhaps it’s not by accident that our company, of all companies, now finds itself at the center of national discussion on the right and the freedom to choose. How ironic is it that our employees are willing to stand up and face termination for the very values and principles they were hired for and this company supposedly embraces?!
Choose to make a stand for all of our employees and re-engage with the White House on the contract terms or scrap it altogether. Our business will grow exponentially as millions of Americans who have rallied to our cause scramble to fly on the “freedom airline”. We will not have enough airplanes and crews to keep up with demand. The nation is rooting for us to get this right — to win this battle before it comes to their doorstep and they are faced with the same terrible choice. Ed Bastian is watching. Doug Parker is watching. The politicians in DC and the President of the United States are watching. This is our chance to truly become the world’s most loved, most flown, and most profitable airline. This is a historic moment — what will your legacy be Mr. Kelly?
There is a burgeoning market of freedom-loving Americans who are being excommunicated from society by medical tyranny. Patriotic companies who embrace this market have a bright future. Pay attention, Gary Kelly.
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 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.
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,

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.
