California Governor Gavin Newsom may be facing a very stiff challenge to his office with recall efforts closing in on enough signatures, but he doesn’t have many opponents to worry about in Hollywood. They generally adore him, not just because he’s a fellow radical progressive Democrat but because he treats them special. In California, “Hollywood Privilege” is real and worthy of big players in Tinseltown to support heavily.
One such Newsom-lover is Netflix co-CEO Reed Hastings, who has just maxed out on his household donations to the Governor’s efforts to retain his seat in the Governor’s Mansion.

According to public filings with the California Secretary of State, Hastings and his wife have donated $124,000 dollars as of yesterday to the Newsom For California Governor 2022 fund. Their donations represent the maximum allowable by state law.
Newsom’s lockdowns over COVID-19 have been one of the biggest reasons this third recall effort seems to be on track to success. Not only are they destroying the state’s economy, but they’re not working. California has become the epicenter of widespread coronavirus infections and deaths despite having the most draconian measures in the nation. Then, he made some enemies from the left by reacting to his impending recall by lifting restrictions.
Ric Grenell, who Tweeted about the donation from Hastings, is our favorite to run against Newsom should he face a recall election.
Lockdowns that are harming average citizens and destroying small businesses are actually benefitting Hollywood with Gavin Newsom giving them special privileges. Of course radical progressives at Netflix, including their CEO, adore their Governor.
COVID-19 lockdowns are taking 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 resurgence of lockdowns 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 $17,300 to stay afloat through March when we hope the economy will be more open, 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. In November, 2020, we hit 1.2 million visitors.
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.
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 going.
