Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

"People do not expect to find chastity in a whorehouse. Why, then, do they expect to find honesty and humanity in government, a congeries of institutions whose modus operandi consists of lying, cheating, stealing, and if need be, murdering those who resist?"

H.L. Mencken

"In 1978 while Deng was coming to power, 'seek truth from facts' was so ingrained in American life that we could hardly see an alternative. Today our own cultural revolutionaries increasingly forbid it. That is why, regardless of what the American sages and economists may claim in their delusions of a continuing American rationality, why we are falling behind China.

In America, we have called in the clowns of ideology and correctitude. We have allowed the Biden gang of pronoun mutants in masks to rob the central bank. We now worship the clowns and imitate their masks. In China, they still, very privately, laugh at them."

George Gilder

"The entire tragic, criminal, murderous, stupid, farcical COVID fraud is based on a hundred years of Rockefeller medicine—a pharmaceutical tyranny in which the enduring headline is:


That’s the motto engraved on the gate of the medical cartel.

—Thousands of so-called separate diseases, each caused by an individual germ. 

'Kill each germ with a toxic drug, prevent each germ with a toxic vaccine.'

In the absence of those hundred years of false science and propaganda, COVID-19 promotion would have gone over like a bad joke. A few sour laughs, and then nothing, except people going on with their lives.

The overall health of an individual human being has to do with factors entirely unrelated to 'one disease, one germ'."

Jon Rappoport

"It is time to refuse any and every order by this pathetic and evil governing system. It is time to refuse to pay all tax to this monster. It is time to open all your businesses, and to reclaim your independence. It is time to take off these noxious masks that are only meant to gauge compliance and to dehumanize us all. It is time to gather together at every opportunity, and to enjoy a full and beautiful social life. It is time to arm yourselves, not for the purpose of aggression, but for the purpose of self-defense against this onslaught of state enforcement of draconian rules. It is time to tell any corporation that is restricting normal behavior due to state orders to stand down or lose their business. It is time to forcefully defy in numbers each and every assault by state goons called 'law' enforcement. It is time to actively defend yourselves from thugs and gangs commissioned and protected by the state in order to allow them to cause chaos and division. It is time to travel at will regardless of state mandates. It is time for you to demand to see and console your family members in hospitals and nursing homes regardless of criminal behavior by these now mostly terrible institutions. It is time to tell these demonic politicians that you will not accept any state passport (papers) or monitoring devices. It is time to refuse any deadly, experimental, and body and mind-altering vaccination. It is time to wake up and take back your freedom by any means necessary! And when this is done, it is time for all of us to head to the pubs and restaurants for a mass celebration."

Gary D. Barnett

"Is it officially 'game over'? Most likely. There's a big chance we'll be a de facto one-party government by the end of Biden's term, and there'll be nothing we can do about it (short of a Civil War or state secessions). We had a good run, though. Nearly 250 years of being the freest, most prosperous, most opportunity-filled nation in global history were really quite amazing. We should be grateful and proud to have been a part of this 'Great American Experiment'

The only glimmer of joy I will get from the end of America is the look on Democrats’ faces when they finally realize what we've been warning them about for decades... what unchecked liberalism/socialism really looks like and how quickly it can destroy once-great nations and a once-great people."

Wayne Dupree

"All tyranny is an illusion predicated on fear within the minds of the enslaved, so do not fear."

Brandon Smith

"Conservatives think religious faith in the State is terrifying and wonder why so many embrace it. It's because uncertainty is much more frightening. A simple false story is better than a complex true one, and with enough faith, maybe we can force the simple story to be true."

John Hayward

"The political process is a facade of government that satisfies the quest for political choices. It is an illusion unrelated to reality and political participation by the people It is, however, the perfect system for keeping the people focused on empty nonsense year after year. People totally misunderstand the nature of government. Otherwise, they would know that there is no such thing as political choices or political freedom."

Bob Livingston

"All governments are, as they must be, oligarchies: only a relatively small number of people have substantial effective discretion to make critical decisions about how the state’s power will be brought to bear. Beyond the oligarchy itself and the police and military forces that compose its Praetorian Guard, somewhat larger groups constitute a supporting coalition. These groups provide important financial and other support to the oligarchs and look to them for compensating rewards — legal privileges, subsidies, jobs, exclusive franchises and licenses, transfers of financial income and wealth, goods and services in kind, and other booty — channeled to them at the expense of the mass of the people. Thus, the political class in general — that is, the oligarchs, the Praetorian Guards, and the supporting coalition — uses government power (which means ultimately the police and the armed forces) to exploit everyone outside this class by wielding or threatening to wield violence against all who fail to pay the tribute the oligarchs demand or to obey the rules they dictate.

Democratic political forms and rituals, such as elections and formal administrative proceedings, disguise this class exploitation and trick the masses into the false belief that the government’s operation yields them net benefits. In the most extreme form of misapprehension, the people at large become convinced that, owing to democracy, they themselves 'are the government'."

Robert Higgs

"The modern institution of the presidency is the primary political evil Americans face, and the cause of nearly all our woes. It squanders the national wealth and starts unjust wars against foreign peoples that have never done us any harm. It wrecks our families, tramples on our rights, invades our communities, and spies on our bank accounts. It skews the culture toward decadence and trash. It tells lie after lie. Teachers used to tell school kids that anyone can be president. This is like saying anyone can go to Hell. It’s not an inspiration; it’s a threat."

Lew Rockwell

"'Have they even read the new Georgia election law?.'

This is a question being asked by conservatives and others who are criticizing major league baseball, Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola, and other corporations that are 'protesting' the law.

The answer is YES they have, which is why they are protesting.  The law requires voter I.D., the exact same thing you must do to get on a Delta Airlines flight.  If requiring I.D. to vote is racist, then so is flying on Delta Airlines, opening a bank account, etc.  The law’s sole purpose is to deter the immense voter fraud machine constructed by the Democrat party that was on display in the November elections.  Since these corporations are now arms of the Democrat party, of course they are dead set against anything that deters voter fraud.  Honest elections could stand in the way of the Democrat pipedream of turning America into another socialist sh*thole country with the San Francisco-ization of the entire nation and must therefore be stopped at any cost.  They are doing this because they are evil, freedom-hating, power-mad, totalitarian elitists, not because they are confused or not very well-read."
