It ought to concern every single American.” —  Patricia Tolson via The Epoch Times, Rep. Gohmert: “Violations Of American Rights” Of Jan. 6 Prisoners “Mind Blowing” | ZeroHedge

“good hearts and sound minds are achievements, not birthrights … we are living in an age when civilization itself is under attack—or at least Western civilization, which has made the fruitful lives we lead today possible … We see everywhere the decline of manners; the ruin of families in political strife; triviality and freakishness in the arts; the evisceration of entertainment; the preachy ideologizing of sports; and of course the full-scale collapse of the news media over the last few years to the point where I, a former journalist, no longer trust the most straightforward headline perpetrated by the corporate media. It’s a sad spectacle, and the tide is rising.” —  Tracy Lee Simmons, How To Recognize Civilization When You See It

“Schwab makes the fundamental error that these new technologies act as independent drivers of the way people behave and think, rather than as accelerants that nonetheless have not changed ancient fixed and predictable human behavior. … there are plenty of linguistic reasons alone to be suspicious of the grandiose notion of a top-down, international, and fundamental transformation of the way the world is supposed to work…” —  Victor Davis Hanson, The Great Regression – The American Mind

“in discussing the Dobbs case, I prophesied, “and if your media sources resemble those I’ve seen, the moral angle will be played to the hilt with stories of exceptional cases being treated as the rule.” -How right I was” —  Clarice Feldman, Anatomy of a Really Vile Bit of Propaganda – American Thinker

“The Left has a rather schizophrenic attitude toward protests and demonstrations … are protests and demonstrations good or bad? I think they are good–that is to say, consistent with our Constitution’s framework of ordered liberty–when they are peaceful (not “mostly peaceful”), when they are conducted in public places with proper permitting, and when they do not explicitly or implicitly threaten anyone.
