NOTABLE QUOTES

Sarah Arnold writing for Townhall: According to a Rasmussen Report poll, 53 percent of Americans see President Joe Biden as the FBI’s personal mole rat, while 44 percent U.S. voters say they trust the FBI less after Trump’s Florida home was targeted. Prior to the attack on Mar-a-Lago, 50 percent of Americans had a favorable outlook on the FBI, however 46 percent now say view the agency negatively.

Mark A. Hewitt contributor to American Thinker: We need new leadership at DoD.  The current crop is either sympathetic generals of the likes the chairman of the JCS, General Mark “Diversity is our strength” Milley, or the incompetent undeclared racists hiding in uniform using the classical racist subterfuges to purge white men from the ranks, like Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Maj. Gen. Ed Thomas.  They may wear the uniform of our country but they are not on the side of America.

Matthew Hanley contributor to Frontpage Magazine: That so many people, near and dear and faraway alike, succumbed to the lockdown lies has been unsettling. It may be understandable, human nature being what it is; we are perennially susceptible to the pull of propaganda and peer pressure. Even still, it reflects just how detached from the truth we have collectively become, which is ultimately a spiritual matter.

Mark Davis contributor to Frontpage Magazine: It is hard to imagine a political fall so far so fast. But then it is harder still to imagine a plunge so willful and unrepentant, featuring a sense of denial so stubborn that no public repudiation brings clarity. But such is the power of Trump hatred, and such is the political death of Liz Cheney. Her sad charade is over. She may not know it, but it is.

Karin McQuillan contributor to American Greatness: As a pampered child of the political elite, Cheney completely underestimated that a non-politician on a budget campaign would be a formidable—indeed unstoppable—opponent. Cheney offered nothing but NeverTrump hatred. Wyoming voters—and I am one—rightly turned on her for her delusional beliefs in a January 6 “insurrection.” We didn’t care for the stench of her self-righteous love of power.

Olivia Murray contributor to American Thinker:  . . . the defeat of Liz Cheney illustrates the ever-present reality that leftists are defined by their sanctimonious displays of pseudo-aristocracy. They believe universities to be the pinnacle of enlightenment and academic excellence, and graduates of such institutions are intellectually superior — but then comes the doublethink, for only if a person exits from their schooling as a lefitst, are they “educated.” Conservative values, regardless of any collegiate achievement, equates to “ignorance.”

Laila: Interesting Move: Trump Posts Declassification Memorandum of “Materials Related to FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation”

It’s ALL about the Spygate documents. It’s all about Crossfire Hurricane and the Deep State’s targeting of Trump. The multi-agency spy operation was spearheaded by Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, Brennan, Clapper and others on behalf of Hillary Clinton. President Trump on Thursday shared his “Memorandum on Declassification of Certain Materials Related to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation” to his Truth Social page: . . .

THE ADMINISTRATIVE STATE

Shapiro: ‘The Regulatory State Needs To Die. A Stake Needs To Be Driven Through Its Heart.’

On Thursday, speaking of federal agencies and their overbearing effect on the American populace which has no recourse to challenge them, Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro said bluntly, “The regulatory state needs to die. A stake needs to be driven through its heart.” Shapiro addressed the CDC and it’s director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, admitting it needed to reorganize. Then he turned to the reluctance by much of the federal bureaucracy to admit that the monkeypox outbreak has been driven by men in the homosexual community. “Best scientific story today,” he stated. “This is from NBC News. So you may have noticed because it’s perfectly obvious that sex between gay men was causing the spread of monkeypox. You may have noticed this because all statistics showed it, that 96% of new monkeypox cases were from men who were having sex with other men.” “But you weren’t allowed to say that,” he noted. “It was ‘skin to skin contact.’” […]  “There’s an embedded institutional attitude at the CDC,” he charged. “And these embedded institutional attitudes have a massive impact on how regulation is done, which is why the regulatory state needs to die. A stake needs to be driven through its heart. Instead, rulemaking needs to be done at the legislative level.

Harvey Risch, MD:  DC’s Ludicrous Makeover

The CDC announced that the institutes have done an external/self-study and proposed a makeover “to restore public trust.”  Dr. Walensky said that she “plans to remake the culture to help the agency move faster when it responds to a public health crisis. She also wants to make it easier for other parts of the government to work with the CDC, and wants to simplify and streamline the website to get rid of overlapping and contradictory public health guidance.”  The CDC’s announcement covers everything except the fundamental problem to which the director and the external reviewer are blind: industry subservience and epidemiologic incompetence. The CDC has published numbers of fatally flawed study reports over the last two years in MMWR, its captive journal.  No amounts of “moving faster” will fix this problem.  It took the CDC two years to figure out that the vaccines are not an effective public health tool for reducing infection spread, something that I and numerous colleagues have been saying for more than a year.

Nobel: Mike Pence: Political Dunderhead

Since the FBI raid on former President Trump’s personal residence, the bureau has come under justifiable political fire. Former Vice President Pence, who increasingly is making signals he wants to break from Trump’s orbit, has come out condemning those criticizing the FBI. Those remarks are being used by progressives, who want to exploit divisions within the Republican Party. Mr. Pence surely knew this would be the case so what is his angle? What was odd about it was that just on August 9th, he expressed concern over the raid. A week later, he seems to change his tune. “We can hold the attorney general accountable for the decision that he made without attacking rank-and-file law enforcement personnel at the FBI”, he said. Do you know of any prominent conservative, or even one that is not so prominent, who suggests “attacking rank and file agents?”  What is he talking about? Our problem is with leadership, and criticism should not be construed as suggesting violence at all.

Betz: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says 20 charged for voter fraud

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday said 20 people who had been disqualified from voting because of felony convictions are now facing voter fraud charges. DeSantis said those charged with voter fraud were from South Florida and had been convicted of murder and sexual assault – which would prohibit them from voting. “This is against the law, and now they’re going to pay the price for it,” DeSantis said. The identities of those charged were not released. If convicted, they face up to five years prison.

Powe: Newly-Obtained Moderna Documents Show mRNA COVID Vaccines Cause ‘Skeletal Malformation’ – Here’s What Happened To The Offspring Of Lab Rats Who Were Jabbed

Rats that were injected with Moderna’s experimental mRNA editing COVID vaccines developed rib malformations, according to documents newly obtained internal documents from the pharmaceutical giant via a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch. The government watchdog obtained 700 pages document package from the pharmaceutical company including excerpts of Moderna’s formal Biological Licensing Application application, a form drug manufacturers are required to submit to the Food and Drug Administration for approval. […]  The documents also contain test results of reproductive toxicology tests conducted on rodents. The test results confirm Moderna’s gene-editing shots cause skeletal disfigurement in the offspring of rats that were injected with doses of mRNA-1273 or Spikevax mRNA.

Drey: Rainbow-Colored Fentanyl Pills Pouring Over Southern Border Hit American Cities

Over 15,000 rainbow-colored fentanyl pills that look like a small piece of candy were seized Wednesday after authorities found the deadly drugs strapped around a person’s leg at the Nogales Port of Entry for the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona. Port Director Michael W. Humphries said the discovery marks the second consecutive day that such pills were found. Authorities believe the multi-colored pills may be the start of a trend with Transnational Criminal Organizations targeting children.

Barkoukis: The White House Admits It Was Completely Wrong About CHIPS Act Claim, but Still Hasn’t Corrected the Record

After signing the CHIPS Act into law earlier this month, which aims to increase domestic chip production, President Biden claimed it would lead to “more than $1 million construction jobs alone over the next 6 years building semiconductor factories in America.” It turns out, that figure is completely wrong. A White House official said it was a “mix up,” but this number was not something Biden said off-script. He said it in official remarks while signing the bill, then tweeted the statement from his official Twitter account.

DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MARXIST PLAYBOOK:  ANTI-POLICE  ANTI-VICTIM  PRO-CRIMINAL

Feuerherd: Sex fiend who nearly killed NYC man with sucker punch freed without bail

A convicted sex offender who allegedly cold-cocked a man on a Bronx street — leaving him in a coma with brain injuries — was freed without bail Thursday after getting his attempted-murder charges reduced in the unprovoked attack. Bui Van Phu, 55, was instead charged by the Bronx District Attorney’s Office with assault and harassment, both misdemeanors, for the brutal knockout punch last Friday that left 52-year-old Jesus Cortes unconscious on the street, according to a criminal complaint. The victim required brain surgery and is now in a medically induced coma, authorities said.

Colton: Seattle homicides rose precipitously in 2020 as liberal leaders demanded police be defunded

Seattle, Washington, became a focal point of the defund the police movement in 2020, as riots and protests raged in the city that summer after the murder of George Floyd. Following widespread support from liberal leaders and activists to defund, data show homicides rose precipitously in the city.

“It’s clear that law enforcement is not always the appropriate avenue to deal with these issues,” then-Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan said on July 13, 2020. “Today, the chief and I are announcing an initial $76 million in reductions to the 2021 budget.” Her announcement came as the city’s council members pushed for the police department to be cut by a whopping 50% – a proposal Durkan slammed. The police budget for 2021 was ultimately set to $363 million, compared to 2020’s $401.8 million budget. […]  In 2019, Seattle recorded 31 homicides. That number skyrocketed by 61% the following year to 50 homicides, the highest number recorded in 26 years. […]  Shootings have meanwhile skyrocketed this year. Seattle Police data analyzed by Fox News Digital shows there have been 446 reported shootings this year, as of July 31. The shootings marked a 42% increase compared to last year during the same time period, when 315 shootings were reported.

Elordi: Parents Protest Elementary Teacher Who Was Disciplined Over ‘Queer’ Kids TikTok Teaching Again At New School

An elementary school teacher who was disciplined by her school after posting a TikTok saying she talked to her students about sexuality has been hired again and is teaching even younger children at a new school. Fourth-grade teacher Jenna Hall parted ways in May with Renaissance Academy in Lehi, Utah, after the school investigated a TikTok in which Hall says some of her students “are queer because I’m queer.” […]  Beehive Science & Technology Academy in Sandy, Utah, has hired Hall as a second-grade teacher for the 2022 school year. “Right now, my school is a brand new school, so none of the kids know each other, so we’re working on those social-emotional skills to know how to make friends and what good friends do,” Hall said in a video posted to her TikTok account on Tuesday. […]  On Thursday morning, parents of children attending Beehive Academy organized a small, peaceful protest outside the school to protest Hall’s hiring.

Vadum: Parent Sues School Over Transgender Brainwashing

California parent Jessica Konen is suing her local school district for secretly indoctrinating her 6th grade daughter into the cult of transgenderism, convincing her to change her gender identity, all while urging her not to discuss the situation with her mother because she could not be “trusted.”

The behavior of these woke teachers matters not only because parents – as opposed to the government – are supposed to be in charge of raising their own children, but also because transgenderism is a treacherous ideology that threatens the very underpinnings of both our society and Western civilization as a whole. It is not about homosexuality or bisexuality, which Americans have become increasingly tolerant of in recent years. Many Americans are even supportive of transgender people when they are consenting adults, but they do not support groomers’ efforts to force impressionable children to renounce their birth sex and pretend to be something they are not. The rise of groups such as Gays Against Groomers, whose members are aghast at reports of little kids being forced to attend drag queen performances, shows that plenty of gays recognize it is wrong to push transgender ideology onto children. It is about totalitarian thought control.

Greenfield: This Version of Anne Frank’s Diary Should Be Removed From Libraries

Here’s the JTA very deliberately pushing its political agenda of getting sexualized books to kids. […] This is not Anne Frank’s diary. This is a comic book based on a version of the diary that neither Anne nor her father wanted published. I’ve written about the abuse of Anne Frank’s legacy multiple times. There’s the famous play that eliminated her Jewishness. There’s also the ‘unabridged’ diary. This is material that Frank wrote when she was younger that she then got rid of. Her father respectfully edited the diary when he fulfilled her wish to have it published. After his death, the “unabridged” diary containing sexual materials that neither the dead girl nor her father wanted to publish was gleefully put out there. The material that parents objected to in “Anne Frank’s Diary: The Graphic Adaptation”, even assuming it’s true to the unabridged version (I have no idea if it is) was also the material that Anne’s older self censored and that her father got rid of. It doesn’t belong in schools and shouldn’t be in public view. It’s an insult to her memory. […]  Exploiting the Holocaust to push a sexual agenda in schools is despicable. And using stolen writings from a murdered Jewish girl to do so is equally so.

CLIMATE EMERGENCY: IT’S POLITICAL

Greenfield: Wind Turbines Are Destroying the Planet

New York, along with other states, is moving forward with massive wind turbine projects. The push for “9,000 megawatts of offshore wind energy” comes at a high price, not only for families who are left dependent on expensive and unreliable energy, but for the planet. Wind turbines require massive amounts of rare earths for their generators and motors. A single wind turbine eats up tons of rare earth metals. Rare earth mining carried out in China is horrifyingly destructive to people and the environment. One story described radioactive lakes, high cancer rates and villagers whose “teeth began to fall out” and “hair turned white at unusually young ages”. “Children were born with soft bones and cancer rates rocketed.” A recent Associated Press story about rare earth mining operations in Burma told of a world where “birds no longer sing, and the herbs no longer grow. The fish no longer swim in rivers that have turned a murky brown.” […]  Balsa wood is light, airy and popular for everything from model airplanes to planes. The obsession with green energy has created a massive demand for balsa wood to use in wind turbines. While a story from 2020 about how 14 million trees had been cut down in Scotland to make way for wind farms recently went viral, far more trees are cut down to make turbines. Billions of trees. One wind turbine blade can require as much as 5,300 cubic feet of balsa wood.

Murphy: Study: Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Is Surviving Climate Change Just Fine

The climate hysteria movement is replete with predictions of utter doom for various ecosystems on Earth owing to the scourge of man-made global warming, which has been re-branded “climate change.” But a new study shows that one of those ecosystems — Australia’s Great Barrier Reef — seems to be doing just fine despite dire warnings of its imminent demise. The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system, stretching over 1,400 miles along Australia’s northeast coast off the state of Queensland. It encompasses an area over approximately 133,000 square miles of the Coral Sea in the South Pacific, and includes some 900 islands and more than 2,900 individual reefs. […]  But what, exactly, is the Great Barrier Reef recovering from currently? Has so-called climate change already taken its pound of flesh from the delicate ecosystem? While climate hysterics would have you believe that man’s CO2 emissions and flatulent dairy cows have been destroying the Great Barrier Reef, the reality is much more mundane — and far more reasonable. According to Peter Ridd, an Australian marine geophysicist, the Great Barrier Reef is “one of the most fluctuating ecosystems on earth,” and is distinguished by boom or bust cycles that can last a decade or more. Ridd speculates that a prolonged El Niño pattern has bathed the GBR in relatively warm water since 2016, which causes bleaching of the reef system.

Hoft: EXPERTS: Monkeypox Spread by Gay Sex Between Men… So How Did Those Children, Dogs and 2-Yr-Old Get Monkeypox?

Since the outset of the global monkeypox outbreak in May, public health and infectious disease experts have told the public that the virus is largely transmitting through skin-to-skin contact, in particular during sex between men. Now, however, an expanding cadre of experts has come to believe that sex between men itself — both anal as well as oral intercourse — is likely the main driver of global monkeypox transmission. The skin contact that comes with sex, these experts say, is probably much less of a risk factor. […]  On Wednesday, The Gateway Pundit reported that eight children were infected with monkeypox including an infant child under the age of 2, citing a report from ABC. […]  So are officials investigating these cases?

Are you fed up? Are you worried that America in rapidly sliding into a neo-Marxist state by the radical left in control of Washington with historically narrow majorities in the U.S. House and Senate and an Executive controlled by unnamed far leftists in place of a clinically incompetent President Biden? They are desperate to keep power and complete their radical progressive agenda that will change America and our liberty forever.

Americans just witnessed the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 without one Republican vote in the U.S. Senate and House (just as Obamacare was passed in 2010). The IRS  will be hiring 87,000 new agents, many armed, to terrorize American taxpayers.

Americans witnessed the FBI raid at the Trump Mar-A-Lago home and property of President Trump, truly a first in all of American history. We know what that is about. 

It is undeniable that the Democrat Party and the administrative state (the executive branches of the DOJ, FBI, IRS, et al) are clear and present dangers to our Republic and our liberty as they increasingly veer further away from the rule of law and the Constitution. What is the solution? At this critical juncture, there is only one action we can all take.

The only viable and timely solution at this critical point is to vote – yes, vote correctly and smartly to retake the U.S. House and Senate on November 8th and to prepare the way to retake the White House in two years. Vote and help everyone you know to vote. Please click the TAKE ACTION link below – we must vote correctly and in great numbers to be sure our votes are counted to diminish the potential for the left to rig and steal the midterms and the 2024 elections as they are clearly intending to do after their success in 2020.
