past is prologue

wisdom seems missing – “The future will honor those who are wise enough to avoid the mistakes made 100 years ago.  But those who fail by repeating these same mistakes will leave sordid and dishonorable legacies.” — Theodore Thomas: Madness Redux – American Thinker

propaganda served insidious and disingenuous – “For the left, though, it’s different when a Republican does it.” … “The modern leftist media is unconstrained by traditional rules of reporting. Rather than reporting the facts and letting readers draw their conclusions, modern reporters offer conclusions and then throw in random, often unrelated or meaningless facts.” — Andrea Widburg: The American media and the art of grotesque misrepresentations – American Thinker — “In the world of modern journalism, the best we can do is encourage people to turn off the TV and remove these outlets from their browser’s bookmarks.”

reparations? to whom? – “The supply line of history rarely lies. … it is time for a “conversation” — as the left likes to put it — about paying reparations to the descendants of people who fought and died to help free enslaved people.” — A.J. Rice: Those African Kings Owe Me – American Thinker

myth mongering – “We keep hearing from the environmentalist crowd that hurricanes are getting more powerful and more deadly thanks to man’s greenhouse gas emissions. So why aren’t we seeing the catastrophic loss of life that Biden expected?” — : Biden Was Wildly Wrong About Ian’s Death Toll — Here’s Why It Matters – Issues & Insights — “nothing is more clear from the natural disaster record than that prosperity – and the ability it provides to better withstand whatever comes – is how you save lives.”

from the front line – sundance– : Hurricane Ian Recovery Update and Hurricane Ian Recovery Update Day 2 – The Last Refuge

count the ways – “The Democrats have tried to politicize Hurricane Ian” — John Hinderaker: On Hurricane Ian | Power Line

how do they gain office? – “The ideology that underpins their agenda is antagonistic to the traditional conception of criminal justice and, if taken to its logical conclusion, demands its destruction,” — Petr Svab via The Epoch Times: Progressive ‘De-Prosecutors’ Disrupt Criminal Justice System, Experts Say | ZeroHedge

alumni unite! – “individuality based on color of skin takes precedence over forming a common bond across the unit.  This is a complete reversal of the military’s traditional values.” … “This is a national security crisis on many levels.  For one, the military is replacing the type of people who believe in service and country with those who don’t.  That won’t end well.” — Fletch Daniels: Air Force Academy Woes Highlight Collapse of Military Values Under Diversity Mania – American Thinker

If the military is to succeed going forward, it needs to return to the values that made it great.  And that will not happen as long as Democrats hold power.  If and when Republicans are back in power, they need to do a lot more than outlaw critical race theory.  They need to dismantle the diversity and inclusion infrastructure in the military.  No more toxic diversity commissars or indoctrination sessions.  Until that happens, the problem cannot be fixed, and the military will continue to face a values crisis that impacts recruiting and readiness at every level.

it’s fear talking – “For the left, including the Democrat party and the media, fascism is more of the same name calling that in recent years was “racism” or any of the many “phobias” used, in Alinsky fashion” — Brian C. Joondeph: Mamma Mia MAGA – American Thinker — “Simply calling one’s political opponents names like ‘fascist’ is projection, attributing one’s own feelings or deficiencies to others.”

double justice – “This is the tale of two laptops, one tale definitely damaging to the Democrats, one potentially so. What they have in common is that the FBI did its damnedest to bury both.” — Jack Cashill: The Seth Rich Case: The FBI’s Other Laptop Scandal – American Thinker

“if the history and culture of Virginia can be rewritten, the rest of the country will be easier to take down.” — Scott S. Powell and Ann McLean: The Front Line Of The Battle To Save America Is Virginia

C.K. Chesterton reminds us that “the disadvantage of men not knowing the past is that they do not know the present.” Virginia’s political leaders and philanthropists need to wake up. The hour is late, and it is time to get out of denial that so much of what is happening is playing into the hands of our enemies, who want to strip us of our virtuous heritage so that they may subdue America without firing a shot.
