Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

"The US enters the year 2021 as a country that has moved from the list of democracies to the list of authoritarian governments and is rapidly becoming a totalitarian country in which freedom of speech, freedom of association, and due process are dead letter Constitutional protections.  The Gestapo knock at the door, the NKVD knock at the door have come to America."

Paul Craig Roberts

"Americans by and large are lovely people—open, generous, friendly, and quick to forgive. A hyperpoliticized environment, where everything is existential and rooted in race, sex, and sexuality, is deeply at odds with our character and well-being. We deserve to live peaceably as neighbors, even if that means breaking up and creating new political entities. Addressing the reality of our dysfunction is not divisive; the divide already exists. Our task is to apprehend this and end the charade of one nation."

Jeff Deist

"Well, Shakespeare wrote in the tax rebellion that the first thing they would do is 'kill all the lawyers,' which were government prosecutors since there were no private lawyers. I fear that when rebellion breaks out, they will be dragging journalists out to the street and hanging them as well. I seriously doubt it will be safe working for any of the mainstream media in the years ahead. Already, Facebook has warned its employees not to wear even clothing with a Facebook logo. Zuckerberg better hire an entire army to protect him in the future. His personal arrogance will be his undoing."

Martin Armstrong

"Fortunately, more and more people are waking up to the basic con of fake news, which doesn’t only broadcast distorted current events spooling out through screens, day by day.

Basic themes of fake news also span decades and even centuries.

What will happen when enough young people, who want to tear down the structures of the monopolists, realize those same men are bankrolling them in the streets?

What will happen when these young people realize their teachers and mentors and handlers and professors have been feeding them the precise reverse of the truth?

As long as independent media continue to proliferate, that day is coming."

Jon Rappoport

"Rule #1 of Marxists: Never, ever, ever relinquish one iota of power. Die before doing so—but far better, kill everyone who even thinks about challenging that power."

Becky Akers

"How many times have Americans criticized those in other lands for allowing tyrants to rule over them without rising up to protect their own liberty? How many times have those in this country condemned totalitarian monsters across the world, and called for them to be removed or killed? How many times have Americans cheered for aggressive war against other nations because they lived under brutal regimes? How many times have Americans bragged about being exceptional, and falsely declared that they are freest people on earth? How many times has this American population allowed that same tyranny and brutality here at home and done nothing?

I can tell you, most all in this country are voluntarily allowing this takeover today, and are doing absolutely nothing to stop it. Civil disobedience and mass dissent would be enough to quell this onslaught of government lies, carnage, murder, and liberty destruction, but while you condemn others, you sit idle and watch your own freedom taken away without ever lifting a finger to stop it. Shame on all of you who refuse to disobey and refuse to defend your own freedom!"

Gary D. Barnett

"If the government was not doing evil things in secret, then it wouldn’t need secrecy. If the government didn’t have secrecy, there would be no conspiracy theories..."

Caitlin Johnstone

"Before mass leaders seize the power to fit reality to their lies, their propaganda is marked by its extreme contempt for facts as such, for in their opinion fact depends entirely on the power of man who can fabricate it."

Hannah Arendt

"The best good thing that politicians can do for the economy is to stop doing bad. In part, this can be achieved through reducing taxes and economic regulation, and staying out of our lives."

Walter Williams

"The political left deeply believes in things that never happened because their movement is populated by people that are easily manipulated by word redefinitions and false associations. Are they victims of propaganda? Sure. Are they innocent? No. Refusal to question the actions and motives of your chosen movement is willful ignorance, and leftists are accountable for that.

Leftists are the only group of people that has consistently supported mass surveillance, mass censorship, mass violence, property destruction and looting as well as violations of individual rights through medical mandates and lockdowns. They call conservatives 'insurrectionists' while they are the only people openly trying to dismantle constitutional protections and the Bill of Rights. So, who are the real villains of this story?"

Brandon Smith

"It is time to demystify democracy. The surest effect of exalting democracy is to make it easier for politicians to drag everyone else down. Until presidents and members of Congress begin to honor their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, they deserve all the distrust and disdain they receive. Americans need less faith in democracy and more faith in their own liberty."

James Bovard

"Given that it was never possible to stop a highly mutating virus by vaccination – which was something that has been well known – the whole COVID vaccine enterprise was fraud from the beginning and a dangerous one at that. The best we can hope for is that that these fake vaccines being peddled by the unscrupulous governments and greedy pharma companies are ineffective. Being administered on the order of millions of doses a day, we can only pray that the potential side effects of these untested concoctions hastily cobbled together by ruthless profiteers will not produce the greatest man-made medical calamity in history."

Vasko Kohlmayer

"Science is not faith based.

Anyone who tells you they believe or 'trust' in science, is confusing science with marketing.

Science demands proof and skepticism, and if those are censored and mocked, what you are left with is corporate marketing, not science."

Glenn Goodman
