Re: No Troops Died? What Trump Should Have Said

“Biden is non compos mentis, which begs the question: Who is running the country? A host of critical decisions on a myriad of subjects great and small must be made daily, all of which have consequences. We Americans are held liable for decisions made by persons unknown! How is that ‘a government of the people, by the people, for the people?’” —Nevada

“I am proud that Biden and his leftists think of me as a threat to ‘democracy.’ I pledge allegiance to the American flag and to the Republic for which it stands. Period.” —Arkansas

“Biden, now a hindrance to the socialist Democrats’ aims and a mill stone around their necks, will be removed from office and replaced by another useful idiot, not one of the nation’s choosing, but another whom they will use to continue their neo-Marxist assault on our constitutional republic. Unless we stop their progress now, we will not remain a free people, betraying both our faith in God and our Founding Fathers’ trust.” —North Carolina

Re: The Greatest ‘Threats to Democracy’? Biden and His Demo Cadres

“Very powerful indictment of how Biden and company used sleight of hand to alter the most fundamental understanding of our nation. Not that most of his constituents could ever understand the distinction between a Republic and Biden’s democracy.” —New York

“Joe Biden is the very picture of a president who refuses to relinquish power. It’s striking and odd that Dems are having such a hard time recognizing it…” —Illinois

Re: Clarence Thomas v. Jack Smith

“Justice Thomas’s question is very relevant not merely to the question of whether Mr. Smith has the general authority to bring charges against Donald Trump but particularly to the question before the Court. Did he have the authority to defend before SCOTUS the claim that then-President Trump had no immunity for actions made to correct what he perceived to be an improperly conducted federal election? In other words, did he have standing? The rest of the Court should have paid attention to the question.” —Minnesota

“The Democrats are wringing their hands and wailing in angst over the SCOTUS immunity ruling and how it would enable tyranny if Trump were to be reelected. However, if a Democrat wins the presidency in November, the only sound we’ll hear is the collective licking of lips as Democrats salivate in anticipation of forging ahead with their socialist agenda.” —Kentucky

Re: Wednesday: Below the Fold

“To ‘low-information voters,’ Biden’s performance in the debate may have come as a surprise, since much of the major media has been covering for him for the last three years. Now that his obvious mental incapacity has been revealed to wider audiences, Democrats are rushing to replace him on the presidential ballot. But most of Washington has known all along how impaired Biden was. Only now, when his obvious dementia hurts their electoral prospects, does it matter enough that they’ll act. With it ‘merely’ a matter of national security, they were — and remain still — perfectly willing to let a cognitively disabled buffoon continue to occupy the most important office in the free world. Way to put politics before the good of the nation!” —Georgia

Re: Friday Short Cuts

“I think it would be unfair and inappropriate to try and diagnose something from just a 90-minute clip.” —Anthony Fauci

“A clip? That was a 90-minute case study in the dementia-induced steep slope of decline. Where should I go to collect my apologies for being lied to for four-plus years by the DNC, Leftmedia, and Brandon’s campaign? Anyone with the least bit of curiosity could see this coming since his time as that bumbling, stumbling VP of the Obama administration.” —New York

Re: Exploiting the Hatch Act: CIA’s Anti-Trump Collusion

“I don’t know if Congress can stop these agencies from interfering in elections since the blame is on Democrats. They won’t stop this either. We will never know the complete damage done by these people, the CIA, the FBI, and so forth. We must become more aware of our government and try to get people into positions wherein they can become watchdogs for these kinds of treasonous actions. We can no longer trust our agencies to do the job they are supposed to do. Republicans are not without blame either. Our whole government has fallen into the power trap. We need people to be elected who care about us, Americans.” —Arizona

Re: Trump’s Economic Record and Agenda

“Biden’s forgiving of student loans was just another Democrat vote-buying gimmick, as are many of their government giveaway programs. Income redistribution takes away the incentive to do better and improve one’s lot, which has been a hallmark of American growth at home and throughout the world. Trump isn’t perfect, but I believe he has the right idea. I thought he did well before Biden killed everything Trump accomplished. If only he would stop the nitpicking on social media, I might actually like him as a person.” —Minnesota

Re: The Next Educational Indoctrination: Pro-Terror Curriculum

“My wife and I were grade school teachers in Philly for 33 years. And I’m telling you, we don’t have to worry about communist infiltration from Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, etc. They’re ALREADY here, and they’re called the American Federation of Teachers!” —Pennsylvania

Re: Save the Planet, Ditch Your Pets?

“For those who think pets (and flatulent cows) are destroying the planet, the only absolute solution is the deliberate extinction of these species. Yet those same people will protest the building of a dam to generate clean electricity because some obscure reptile might become extinct.” —New Hampshire

“Jessica Pierce just likes to see her name in print by offering such a bogus, self-serving opinion. The two indoor cats in our house provide entertainment, are the focus of our love, and have probably added years and years to the quality of our lives. The cats were obtained from two different rescue sources, and if it weren’t for my wife and I, they would still be rescue residents … or dead. Pierce’s assertion that pets suffer a ‘dark and meaningless’ life is a completely worthless generalization. Our cats have fun on a daily basis, are well-fed, and receive health checkups by our wonderful veterinarian.” —Arizona

Re: Profiles of Valor: The Independence Day Medals

“Always inspired to read The Patriot Post’s Profiles of Valor regarding great American Patriots — in this case, tied to Independence Day. Had never seen this before.” —California
