NOTABLE QUOTES

Chris Bray Substack: The most striking thing about the average member of the contemporary political class — the “elite,” and yes, I know — isn’t that they’re almost invariably wrong, or that they’re never interesting, or that they have no wisdom of any kind that ever shines through anything they do, ever. Instead, the most striking thing about the contemporary political class is that most of them can’t actually speak, . . .  They don’t know anything. They don’t think anything. They have no ability, no insight, no value to offer. So they make our laws.

 Harriett Alexander reporter for Daily Mail: Banks across America are sitting on $620 billion of ‘unrealized losses’ – assets which have decreased in value but have not yet been sold – – the head of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation warned.

Bruce Deitrick Price contributor to American Thinker: If you support a school system that won’t teach children to read, do math, learn the simplest events in history, or understand the most ordinary facts about the world we live in, you’re guilty of child abuse.

Jeffrey Folks contributor to American Thinker: The accepted definition of “racism” is “prejudice against members of a different ethnic group,” with “ethnic” defined as a “subgroup … with a common national or cultural tradition.”  By this definition, residents of the South and the West constitute “ethnic groups,” and there is abundant evidence of prejudice against these regions in American history and in today’s politics and media.

Matt Taibbi in his written Twitter Files Statement to Congress: We learned Twitter, Facebook, Google, and other companies developed a formal system for taking in moderation “requests” from every corner of government: the FBI, DHS, HHS, DOD, the Global Engagement Center at State, even the CIA. For every government agency scanning Twitter, there were perhaps 20 quasi-private entities doing the same, including Stanford’s Election Integrity Project, Newsguard, the Global Disinformation Index, and others, many taxpayer-funded.

Deborah C. Tyler contributor to American Thinker: Let us resolve to reclaim our own words. The cloud of defeat enshrouding America is a spiritual, moral, and political conquest that seeks to control minds, debilitate character, and destroy institutions from within.  That conquest starts with the power to control our words.  We react, we write, we rail against them — but always using their words.  They control the conversation.  We have let the enslavers control our words.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.): “We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero, emissions in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.”

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: CANCEL THE FIRST AMENDMENT

Sibarium: ‘Dogs—t’: Federal Judge Decries Disruption of His Remarks by Stanford Law Students and Calls for Termination of the Stanford Dean Who Joined the Mob

Fifth Circuit appellate judge Stuart Kyle Duncan, who was shouted down by Stanford Law School students as administrators looked on in silence, says the protesters behaved like “dogshit.” Now, in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon, Duncan is calling on the school to discipline the students who disrupted his talk and to fire the school’s associate dean of diversity, equity, and inclusion, who stepped in during the event to chastise him and deliver what the judge described as a “bizarre therapy session from hell.”Duncan’s remarks come after nearly a hundred students at Stanford Law School disrupted his remarks in brazen violation of Stanford University’s free speech policies. One source of the students’ ire was Duncan’s refusal, in a 2020 opinion, to use a transgender sex offender’s preferred pronouns. The Stanford event, which was sponsored by the law school’s chapter of the Federalist Society, got so out of hand that federal marshals eventually escorted Duncan from the building. Tirien Steinbach, the school’s diversity dean, arrived on the scene when Duncan himself asked for an administrator to restore order. She then took to the podium and, in a video that has now circulated widely online, accused the judge of causing “harm.” “Your opinions from the bench land as absolute disenfranchisement” of the students’ rights, Steinbach said, accusing him of “tearing the fabric of this community.” […]  Duncan warned that what happens at Stanford, long the second-ranked law school in the country, behind Yale, is unlikely to stay there. “If enough of these kids get into the legal profession,” he said, “the rule of law will descend into barbarism.”

Dershowitz: Should the Names of Stanford Student Disrupters Be Published?

Once again, a conservative speaker had been shouted down by censorial law students who didn’t want him to speak. This time it was Stanford, last time it was Yale. Then it was Georgetown. If the Stanford Dean of diversity, equity and inclusion gets her way, this censorship of conservative speakers will spread to other campuses. Among the worst offenders in this all-too-common censorship fest was Dean Tirien Steinbach. In what appears to be a written statement prepared in advance, she effectively silenced the speaker, federal Judge Kyle Duncan, by monopolizing his space. She sought to justify not inviting speakers who might offend the sensibilities of students who she claims to be responsible for “protecting” and providing “safe spaces” against uncomfortable ideas. After paying lip service to free speech, she suggested reconsidering Stanford’s speech policy, repeatedly asked whether “the squeeze is worth the juice”. She questioned whether Judge Duncan, whose opinions and views cause “hurt” to students, should have been invited to speak. Her bottom-line message was that offending some students is worse than allowing others to hear from a controversial speaker. This from a high-ranking administrator who was purporting to speak on behalf of the university. The real victims of this censorship were the students who were denied the opportunity to hear Judge Duncan’s full presentation. […]  As the late Justice Thurgood Marshall once observed, “The freedom to speak and the freedom to hear are inseparable; They are two sides of the same coin.”

Turley: Steve Forbes Assaulted at Book Signing Event

This weekend, we witnessed another assault on a public figure by an increasingly aggressive element of American politics. The book signing event was disrupted and Steve Forbes was assaulted by protesters who did not want others to be able to speak with or hear him. The fact that this was a literary event is particularly fitting given the effort of many to prevent free expression in our society. Ironically, the book is titled “Stolen Youth: How Radicals Are Erasing Innocence and Indoctrinating a Generation.”  Forbes was present at a book signing for the new book written by authors Bethany Mandel and Karol Markowicz. Protesters disrupted the event by throwing drinks and books at him and toppling over a display. Forbes reportedly identified two of the protesters as Black Lives Matter activists who were yelling when they came into the event.

Mandel, a mother of six and CEO of Forbes, says that her newborn baby was also struck in the assault.

Le Mehieu: Virginia Judge Rules Embryos Are Property, ‘Chattel’ Using Slavery Law

The ruling was part of a dispute between a divorced couple who both hope to gain control over two frozen embryos, which were created by Honeyhline Heidemann and Jason Heidemann during their marriage, the Associated Press reported this week. “Upon independent research, this court was unable to find any Virginia law prohibiting the purchase or sale of human embryo, nor has either party cited a federal law prohibiting the activity,” Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge Richard Gardiner wrote in a ruling related to the battle over the embryos. “As there is no prohibition on the sale of human embryos, they may [be] valued and sold, and thus may be considered ‘goods or chattels’ within the meaning of Code § 8.01-93.”

Subramanya: The ‘Giant Grift’ That Swallowed Wall Street—and Maybe Your Savings

‘The only healthy endgame for ESG is another acronym: RIP. And it will not be a moment too soon.’  Do not get Dorian Deome started on the bureaucrats investing his life savings in this trendy, newfangled thing they call environmental, social, governance, or ESG, funds. He blows up. Which is dangerous. Deome suffered a massive heart attack in May 2020 at age 38. “My heart literally skips a beat when I think about how my money is used to fund actual racism,” he told me. He meant diversity, equity, and inclusion training programs; racially calibrated corporate boards; the obsession in human resources departments with elevating marginalized voices, often at the expense of white men like Deome—and all the other things that make for ESG compliance. But he has zero pull when it comes to how his retirement funds are invested. He’s a cog in the machine: Deome lives in Olympia, Washington, and processes unemployment insurance claims for Washington State, for which he is paid about $43,000 yearly. The Department of Retirement Systems decides where to invest the $178 billion it oversees. And Washington, with its Democratic governor and state legislature, loves ESG.

BANK FAILURES

Peruvian Bull threadreader: Most people don’t realize how crucial Silicon Valley Bank is. Billions of dollars in venture debt. Untold amounts of warrants and convertible notes in early-stage firms. If SVB fails, this could be the Lehman moment for the startup world. […]  I’ve worked with SVB through my job. they fund a huge amount of startups in the United States- and have their tentacles in basically every large VC and PE fund out there. Most of you have never heard of them, but in the startup world, they are huge. The real risk is SVB is essentially a commercial bank- thousands of startups hold cash reserves at Silicon Valley Bank. Looks like $173B as of last December.

Son: Silicon Valley Bank employees received bonuses hours before government takeover

Silicon Valley Bank employees received their annual bonuses Friday just hours before regulators seized the failing bank, according to people with knowledge of the payments. The Santa Clara, California-based bank has historically paid employee bonuses on the second Friday of March, said the people, who declined to be identified speaking about the awards. The payments were for work done in 2022 and had been in process days before the bank’s collapse, the sources said.

REPUBLICAN U.S. HOUSE MAJORITY

Zeisloft: Democrats And Republicans Fire First Shots In Debt Limit Showdown

The showdown over the future of the federal budget is taking shape as President Joe Biden releases his fiscal year 2024 spending proposal and House Republicans prepare to leverage their new majority to block the plan. The White House suggested an increase in the federal budget from $5.8 trillion to $6.9 trillion over the next fiscal year while reducing cumulative deficits by $3 trillion over the next decade through a number of tax hikes on businesses and wealthy individuals. Households with more than $100 million in wealth would be subjected to a 25% minimum tax, while the top marginal tax rate would also be increased to 39.6% from the current 37% rate. Businesses would see an increase in the corporate tax to 28%, which would split the difference between the current 21% rate and the previous 35% rate that was in effect before the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The proposal, which also suggested new health care and education subsidies, largely adheres to the Democratic emphasis on redistributive fiscal policy. […]  Republican officials, who have not yet countered the budget with a proposal of their own, meanwhile contested various elements of the plan. “President Biden just delivered his budget to Congress, and it is completely unserious. He proposes trillions in new taxes that you and your family will pay directly or through higher costs,” remarked House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). “Washington has a spending problem, not a revenue problem.”

Hubbard: Republicans take aim at State Department-funded censorship

House Republicans are turning up the pressure on Secretary of State Antony Blinken to answer questions about why U.S. taxpayer dollars went to a British nonprofit that polices what it deems “disinformation” online, with a special target on news outlets that are not left-leaning. Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.) led 11 other members of Congress signing a letter Saturday to Blinken demanding to know why the State Department’s Global Engagement Center and the U.S.-funded National Endowment for Democracy sent more than $650,000 to the British Global Disinformation Index in 2021. The disinformation group, which is also financially supported by progressive megadonor George Soros, says it gives “risk ratings” to advertisers to “help them avoid financially supporting disinformation online.”

CHINA AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

(H/T DG) Catenacci: Biden’s clean energy czar Podesta says Chinese companies will be ‘big players’ in future US energy production

Podesta, who made the comments during an event hosted by a renewable energy advocacy group, said Chinese companies will be “big players” in U.S. energy production and electric vehicle manufacturing. The senior adviser noted that the companies would be able to take advantage of Inflation Reduction Act and Chips and Science Act, two laws the Biden administration said would bolster American supply chains. […] The comments, which appeared to hint at a softening approach to China when it comes to energy development in the U.S., earned a scathing rebuke from Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who helped author the IRA. Several energy and climate provisions in the bill were designed to decrease U.S. reliance on Chinese industry for electric vehicles and green energy development. […]  “These words are especially concerning as rumors circulate about the Administration thoughtlessly considering opening up the EV credit’s eligibility beyond our free trade agreement partners and allow the laundering of Chinese minerals and materials through Trojan horse agreements,” the West Virginia senator added.

Le Mahieu: Biden’s Energy Secretary Praises China’s Approach To Green Energy, Hopes To Learn From Communist Country

Daily Wire News; Top Republican Reacts To Marine’s Testimony On Biden’s Afghanistan Withdrawal: ‘Very Devastating’ To Admin

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) said on Sunday that testimony from a U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant about President Joe Biden’s disastrous pullout from Afghanistan was “devastating and damaging to the administration.” McCaul made the remarks during an interview on CBS News’s “Face The Nation” when responding to testimony delivered last week by Sgt. Tyler Vargas-Andrews, a Marine sniper who served in Afghanistan during the withdrawal. […] “I think the most dramatic thing was the fact that this sniper had the suicide bomber in his sights, and an intelligence bulletin went out, you know, describing him,” he continued. “He said this meets the description, meets with the team, psychological operations, get together, they run this up the chain of command, and the commanding officer says, ‘I don’t have the authority.’ And then they said, ‘who does have the authority for permission to engage?’ And the commanding officer says, ‘I don’t know.’ And he never got back to them.”

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: RADICAL TRANSFORMATION OF FOREIGN POLICY

Revolver.news: Trump Calls Out Color Revolution Cabal In Blistering Policy Statement

Victoria Nuland, the woman whose name Trump dares to mention, offers both professionally and biographically a rare glimpse behind the veil into the true nature of power in the United States. Nuland currently serves in Biden’s State Department as the undersecretary of state for political affairs, and previously served President Obama as undersecretary for European affairs from 2013 to 2017. Given Nuland’s status as an obsessive Russia hawk who serves in senior State Department positions in Democrat administrations (Biden, Obama), it might come as a surprise to some that her husband is none other than arch-neoconservative Robert Kagan, a key cheerleader for the war in Iraq under Bush and co-founder of the infamous Project for a New American Century, a “think-tank” dedicated to advancing the principles of Bush-era interventionism. In 2016 Kagan left the Republican Party in protest over Donald Trump, whom he described as a fascist. That Obama’s Russia war hawk and Bush’s war hawk would be literal bedfellows in this case recapitulates in the most direct and intimate sense the primacy of the deep state over superficial and fake partisan divisions. It was this uniparty that Trump attacked and defeated in 2016, and in so doing shook the corrupt system to its very core. As for Nuland herself, it is worth noting . . . […]  Nuland’s role in American foreign affairs has been particularly dark and damaging. Trump directly refers to some of the most damaging chapters of Nuland’s career in his remarks on the US State Department’s involvements in uprisings and coup efforts in Ukraine—otherwise known as “color revolutions.” We described the concept of a color revolution in a previous article as follows: . . .

After all the destructive conflicts of the 20th century, it would seem impossible that the barren seeds of a collective political psychosis could take root and flourish again in the modern world.  But within two years of the Biden presidency, we have become aware of the same deep-running pathology emerging from the psychological bacteria that thrive and multiply in toxic liberal environments.  Liberalism has abandoned its original defense of the principle of individual freedom and become one of those degenerative closed systems of thinking and behavior that allow for the accumulation of pathogenic material within them.

Ditch: 6 Charts Show Crucial Facts About Spending, Taxes, Deficits Missing From Biden’s Budget

The Biden administration on Thursday released an outline for its fiscal year 2024 budget. As expected, it promotes the same swampy, big-government agenda as last year, which the country desperately needs to avoid. Beneath the administration’s spin, the ultimate message is that it thinks the federal government doesn’t have enough power and control over our families and businesses. These charts, based on updated information from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, show just how off-base Biden’s narrative is and why America needs exactly the opposite from its leaders.

VDH: The March Madness of the President

Another couple of weeks, another bout of madness from Joe Biden and his team. Of recent Biden delusions, consider: Biden went off in one of his impromptu Corn Pop, or “beat-up-Trump-behind-the-bleachers” fables. These often slurred and nearly unintelligible tales characteristically virtue signal Biden’s own victimhood and “courage.” They are interspersed with his bizarre propensity for eerie female contact. So we see or hear of his long record of blowing into the ears and hair, or squeezing the necks of young girls. He hugs, for far too long, mature women. He can call out among a crowd an anonymous attractive teen stranger. Or, recently he relates an incoherent but quasi-sexual vignette. So Joe recalled his patient days in his usual off-topic “no lie/not kidding/no joke” manner (i.e., tip offs that he’s lying). He told us that a noble nurse once would “come in and do things that I don’t think you learn in medical school—in nursing school.” The president got a nervous laugh from the apparent quasi-pornographic reference (but then again Joe is excused because he is a “feminist”), before he detailed her technique:

A shocking video released this week by the Metropolitan Police Department shows January 6th protester Rosanne Boyland’s last moments as police attempt to revive her. Boyland was reportedly stampeded by other protesters as her and others attempted to escape a cloud of gas deployed by Capitol Police to disperse demonstrators during the unrest. Protesters repeatedly attempted to get medical help for Boyland and repeated that she was ‘dying’ as she laid unconscious on the ground. Instead of giving her medical attention, one police officer picked up a walking stick left on the ground and started to strike Boyland as she laid on the ground unresponsive. The officer was cleared of any wrongdoing despite Boyland presenting no threat to her. […]  A dramatic new Metropolitan Police Department bodycam video shows how officers and medics from three police agencies worked for 15 minutes to try to revive a lifeless Rosanne Boyland after she was dragged feet-first through the Lower West Terrace tunnel on Jan. 6, 2021.

Dugan:  ‘We were wrong’: Pioneer in child gender swaps makes damning admission

Dr. Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist and pioneer in child gender dysphoria treatment, came out against the popular model of affirming children’s transgender identities and putting them on puberty blockers — a practice she was once involved in — in an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Bradley started a pediatric gender clinic in 1975 aimed at treating children with gender dysphoria — a deep sense of discomfort with one’s body and biological sex — in which she offered a therapy-focused approach; most patients outgrew their feelings of being transgender over time, she told the DCNF. Around 2005, the clinic began prescribing puberty blockers to gender-dysphoric children as a way to alleviate their distress, a model which has since become widely adopted by medical establishments around the world, including in the U.S. Bradley, who is now in her early eighties, expressed regret that the clinic had participated in the administration of puberty blockers for gender dysphoria, which she now believes can cement a child’s sense of confusion out of which they would likely otherwise grow. She also expressed concern about the drugs’ side effects. “We were wrong,” she said. “They’re not as irreversible as we always thought, and they have longer term effects on kids’ growth and development, including making them sterile and quite a number of things affecting their bone growth.”

Dugan: ‘Horrifying’: Huge Proportion Of Children Pursuing Gender Transitions Are Actually Autistic, Experts Believe

 Children with autism make up an outsized proportion of the transgender-identified population, and autism spectrum traits make them particularly vulnerable to thought patterns that can lead youth to pursue gender transitions, according to research and medical professionals. Transgender individuals are about three to six times more likely to be autistic than non-transgender people, research shows; the connection between transgenderism and autism has been a subject of interest for researchers since at least 2010, and the Gender Development Identity Service at Tavistock, the world’s largest pediatric gender clinic, came under fire in recent years over allegations that as many as 97.5% of its gender patients had autism. Dr. Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist and pioneer in treating gender dysphoria, told the DCNF that she now believes most pediatric gender patients are actually on the autism spectrum and are being exploited by medical professionals.

(H/T CC) Murray: Various cults of leftism find well-groomed recruits thanks to the Girl Scouts

For the third year in a row, I’ll be politely declining the sales pitches and instead, handing the chaperone a homemade flyer with big bold letters across the top that read: “Did You Know? The abortion industry is targeting your little girl through the Girl Scouts.” The seeping infiltration of leftist ideology into hallowed and wholesome American institutions resulting in their pollution is nothing new, but as cookie season is in full swing, it’s time to remind conservatives why supporting the Girl Scouts of the USA is deeply troublesome at best. The handout I mentioned above includes abbreviated examples (with sources), but below, you can find a expanded list: GSUSA is leading the charge to groom children for the climate cult.  Last year, GSUSA introduced the “Climate Challenge” patch; the image on the achievement featured a polar bear atop a small chunk of broken-off ice, floating away as a warm-looking sun shined down upon him (her?). To collect the patch, a scout needed to complete ten activities from one of the organization’s guides. The checklist for elementary-aged students begins like this: . . .[…]  GSUSA is a safe harbor and a breeding ground for leftist sexual ideology. GSUSA has completely embraced the deviance of the LGBTQ mafia. The organization even has an “LGBTQ+ Pride Month” patch — earning the badge requires the completion of several activities which can include: . . .

BIDEN’S COVID VACCINATION JAB MANDATES

(Repost) Chandler, M.D., MBA: Report 61: Ute Krüger, MD, Breast Cancer Specialist, Reveals Increase in Cancers and Occurrences of “Turbo Cancers” Following Genetic Therapy “Vaccines”

Dr. Krüger, MD, is a pathologist who specializes in diseases of the breast. Her lecture concerned changes in breast cancer cases following introduction of Spike generating genetic drug therapy. […]  ’ve been working in pathology for 25 years. For the last 19 years, I was mainly involved in the diagnosis of breast specimens. Almost eight years ago, I got the opportunity to work in breast cancer research at Lund University. Here I have reevaluated 1,500 breast cancer cases according to currently valid guidelines. With this experience, I know approximately the distribution of average age, tumor size, and degree of malignancy that I can expect in the daily input material of breast cancer. Already, in Autumn 2021, I had the impression that I was suddenly receiving more material:

  1. From younger patients, often 30 to 50 years old.
  2. The tumors were growing more aggressively and faster.
  3. And that they were larger. More than four centimeters was not uncommon. I saw tumors up to 16 centimeters in size in the breast.
  4. I also had the impression that multifocal tumor growth and bilateral tumor growths were more frequent.

(3/8/2023) Turley: French Politician Faces Criminal Trial for Immigration Criticism

TAKE ACTION

The Prickly Pear’s TAKE ACTION focus this year is to help achieve a winning 2024 national and state November 5th election with the removal of the Biden/Obama leftist executive branch disaster, win one U.S. Senate seat, maintain and win strong majorities in all Arizona state offices on the ballot and to insure that unrestricted abortion is not constitutionally embedded in our laws and culture.

Please click the TAKE ACTION link to learn to do’s and don’ts for voting in 2024.
