“They’re very action-oriented. This is where mirroring is very important and listening to actions…sometimes kids between the age of 1-2 with beginning language will say ‘I, boy!’ when you say ‘girl’…that’s a gender message.” — Dr. Diana Ehrensaft, a renowned “expert” who co-authored the American Psychological Association’s guidance on the “Gender Affirmative Model.” She claims that 1-2 year olds send gender messages by doing such things as removing barrettes out of their hair and sobbing or unsnapping onesies.
“Other than this one key fact that the rape described actually was a fabrication of this woman, the rest of the story was bulletproof.” — Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner, on the fake University of Virginia rape story from 2014, “A Rape on Campus.” Both the magazine and the journalist who wrote the article were twice found guilty of defamation after an investigation revealed numerous flaws in the story—like the fact that it was based on a lie.

“The ability to make money is not a default assumption of the free market but a privilege extended by the regime.” — The Blaze’s Auron MacIntyre, on YouTube demonetizing Russell Brand. Neither rapper Tory Lanez, who shot a woman in the feet while yelling “dance, bitch!” and was convicted in court and jailed for ten years, nor R. Kelly have had their YouTube channels demonetized.

“Guys, fingerprints on a weapon is indirect evidence. So is DNA evidence at a crime scene.” — Podcaster Ben Shapiro, regarding the mainstream media’s insistence on claiming there’s “no direct evidence” tying Biden to wrongdoing.
“Roth would have you believe that the Twitter Files was a 4chan-style harassment campaign against him personally, instead of a journalistic revelation that helped create the evidentiary basis of what may become one of the most consequential free speech cases in US history.” — Independent journalist Leighton Woodhouse. Roth, the former head of trust and safety at Twitter, had a particularly obnoxious and disingenuous New York Times op-ed published this week in which he once again cried wolf about being “targeted” by Elon Musk while completely whitewashing the fact that he engaged in government censorship.
“Austria-Hungary in 1916 produced 18 times, tsarist Russia 80 times and imperial Germany 129 times as many artillery shells as the entire EU can produce in 2023 (650,000).

Yet you’ve got the guy on video who is saying go into the Capitol, he’s directing people to the Capitol before the speech ends, he’s at the site of the first breach, you’ve got all the goods on him, ten videos, and it’s an indictment for a misdemeanor?!” — Rep. Thomas Massie to Attorney General Merrick Garland, regarding Ray Epps — who is so obviously a Fed it’s comical — being charged with a single misdemeanor for disorderly conduct. Not only did Epps encourage people to go into the Capitol both the night before and on Jan. 6, he was one of the first to breach exterior lines, interfered with security, and remained on restricted grounds for more than an hour. Based on allegations, he should face multiple felony counts including obstruction of an official proceeding. Meanwhile, it was revealed Wednesday that the FBI had so many paid informants at the Capitol on Jan. 6 that it lost track of the number and had to perform a later audit.
