“Somebody’s been reading the polls.”
The statement on a social media post from a popular user highlighting the lifting of face mask mandates across the country struck me as odd. The polls have nothing to do with why politicians, mostly Democrats, are suddenly dropping face mask and vaccine mandates across the country. I’ll explain the real reason behind the hasty — albeit temporary — retreat from authoritarianism in a moment, but first let’s debunk the common notion that the restrictions were lifted to help Democrats in the midterm elections.
Americans have short memories. This is why the two-month period before election day and the three-week period before early voting have much more of an impact on general election results than all the rest of the time combined. Lifting face mask mandates in schools a couple of months before the end of the school year will create less electoral goodwill than announcing in the summer ahead of the fall semester.
But it’s not just schools. You’ll notice that mandates have been lifted on local businesses such as bars and restaurants as well. If this was being done because of polling, then it would have been done months ago.

The most compelling evidence that debunks the notion that they’re lifting restrictions over polling in an election year is that those who are not up for reelection are lifting restrictions as well. Mayor Eric Adams in New York City has barely been in office. He even noted a month ago that lifting mandates was not being considered, yet suddenly he’s promoting freedom.
No, folks, this has nothing to do with polling. It’s far too coordinated; after years of suffering the mask-, vaxx-, and lockdown-nannies, there has been a universal reversal on authoritarian policies in just the last three weeks. That’s not a coincidence, and it’s definitely not the polls. This is part of a plan, and that should concern you.
As I noted in yesterday’s Substack, the timing of Pandemic Panic Theater temporarily being suspended is tied directly to the launch of Phase Two of The Great Reset launch: Ukraine-Russia. The powers-that-be need all of our attention on the narratives they’re selling us. They want the world united against Russia and for Ukraine.
Both Vladimir Putin and Volodymyr Zelensky are influenced by and potentially beholden to the globalist cabal that includes Klaus Schwab, George Soros, and Barack Obama. I’m not suggesting that Putin doesn’t legitimately want to annex Ukraine, nor am I suggesting that Zelensky doesn’t legitimately want to remain independent. But there is something much bigger than just a regional conflict that’s happening right now. We know this based on the incessant push by corporate media, Big Tech, and nearly everyone in government to promote the narrative of “Zelenksy good, Putin bad.”
Whatever it is they have planned for Ukraine, Russia, NATO, and the whole world, most of us won’t know for sure until it’s happening. We can speculate, but I’m holding for more information for now. What I do know with a near certainty is that we haven’t seen the end of Covid mandates.
Over the Top
There’s a strategy in politics that oddly also applies in arm wrestling. In the incomprehensibly corny 1987 Sylvester Stallone arm wrestling movie, Over the Top, he has this signature move that he uses to win the final match (sorry for the spoiler). When he has his opponent’s arm nearly down, he pulls their hands back towards the center before slamming them down to the mat.
The Stallone version of the move isn’t quite how it’s suppose to work. The idea is to relinquish a small bit of one’s advantage to throw the opponent off-balanced and to allow room for the buildup of momentum to get the opponent’s hand to the mat. In real life, it’s a sudden, jerky move. Sly’s version is a bit more dramatic, but it’s a movie so it works.
This is the same basic process used in politics to overcome the last bit of opposition to a policy. They give a “victory” to the opposition, which throws them off balance. Then, they slam them with a worse version of the policy when a triggering event happens.
In the case of the sudden shift away from the mandates, we can expect there to be a “scary” new variant of Covid that starts spiking sometime in the future, probably right before the two-month window ahead of election day that I referenced above.
Lest we forget, Democrats benefit from MORE restrictions on Election Day, not less. It’s ludicrous to think they are pulling down the mandates and restrictions because they’re listening to the science or acknowledging freedom. The only thing authoritarians hate more than actual science is freedom for the people. No, this is all being done by design for the sake of The Great Reset and the expansion of their powers in the near future.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
