Re: MSM Photographers Present With Hamas in Attacks. Wait, What?

“Do the people of Gaza ever see the luxury their leaders live in in Qatar? Pictures should be mass-produced and dumped in Gaza. If the atrocities carried out on 10/7 are justifiable, in any way, then there are no rules of war. Toss out Geneva. Why does one side at least try to maintain some civility in a totally uncivil situation, and the other side completely ignores any civility and gets treated as oppressed? Most Arab states don’t support Palestinians as people, only as an opposing force to the Jewish state. Jordan found out what happens when one tries to support the people. Nobody seems to remember the attempted overthrow of the Jordanian state. The only state in the Middle East that will allow Palestinians a home is Israel.” —Nevada

“Only the news on the alternative media is worth my trust. I haven’t believed anything ever coming from a terrorist organization or those reporting for them. First, any person with a mind knows most of those reporting from the Palestinian side are not free to report the truth and never have been. They would be dead if they did. Their sympathies lay with the terrorists and always have or they wouldn’t be there; they would not be accepted. I hope Israel finds them all and brings them to justice.” —Oregon

Re: Democrat Strategy to Defeat Pro-Life Republicans

“There is a very good reason for this. God has gone out of our lives. If God were in our lives, then we would be ashamed of the vile things we humans do to our own bodies and to unborn babies. God would bring on the guilt that is necessary to correct this decline of civilization, this lack of respect and civility toward each other, and this path to serfdom that we are following. Just observe over the past decade the closing of multiple Catholic high schools and parishes in the Northeast and elsewhere. The decline of real education is happening not only in grammar schools and high schools but now in our universities. The devil walks among us and with us. Marxists are winning. Savagery will follow. The forgotten spiritual side of man.” —Massachusetts

Re: Why Is ObamaCare Still So Terrible?

“Obama socialized two crucial aspects of American life and culture. The first was ObamaCare, and the second was taking over the student loan business. That was all about getting young, gullible college students to vote Democrat and ensure his reelection. Neither has worked well financially for the general public. This is a classic example of why federalism is so important to the American people. The primary responsibility of the federal government as defined in the Constitution is to provide for the common defense. And that is the caboose in the long train of federal programs that have priority funding over defense.” —California

“ObamaCare was never meant to be affordable. It was just another way to make people pay for someone else’s treatments (welfare, anyone?). It would be no bad thing to get rid of it and let better ideas be floated to determine a more practical approach. Kind of reminds you of his ‘shovel-ready jobs’ spiel when he was campaigning the first time. What ever became of those? (Cue the crickets, please).” —Montana

“Everyone I know was adversely affected by ObamaCare. Health insurers made out like bandits as O'Care subsidized any possible losses and Pharma was given a huge price increase. RINO John McCain let his hatred for Trump rule him and voted ‘No’ against the wishes of his base.” —Minnesota

Re: Gun Rights and Domestic Violence

“Tell that to the legislators in MA who want to further restrict gun rights in a state with some of the toughest gun laws in America. They are Marxists. They wish us to provide $250 million for ‘migrants’ (read: illegal aliens) who have no education, no vaccinations, no loyalty to this country, no vetting, and are takers and users of our money and medical and educational systems without contribution. If they pass this new gun bill, it will, by definition, be unconstitutional. So, until the SJC reviews it, these fools will make us felons in our own state, unable to defend ourselves from the ‘migrant’ whom they have launched upon us. What tyrants. What useful Idiots.” —Massachusetts

Re: In Brief: End DEI

“The biggest problem with the DEI movement is that there is only a small group of people that are defining what they think DEI really means. They do not want diversity of thought if those thoughts don’t align with theirs. They really don’t want equality; they want to be the ‘equal’ while those who disagree can go ‘pound sand.’ As far as inclusion, one is welcome to be included only if their thoughts align with the powers of the movement. DEI should DIE.” —Washington
