The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

I'll say it straight out loud. I do not think that Joe Biden "won the election." I don't think it is a question of "widespread fraud." I think the way the system works with the Electoral College, you only need actually to spread fraud in six key cities in six key states. Mark Steyn

Quote II

“My mom and dad took me out on the back porch and my dad started talking about how the world isn’t fair. I knew something was wrong,”Eleven-year-old Macie Shenefield

Quote III

“They were never great but at least they were edible. This year it’s just strange how everyone gets free lunch and the lunches are trash. Kristi Salzano, mother of two school children

Quote IV

Sorry, but even if there are good field agents, our intelligence agencies were always a festival of fail that could only be more obvious if it wore a fruit hat and shashayed to samba in the Carnival in Rio.Sarah Hoyt


Quote V

“Historically, the organization was viewed as an Army command tasked with law enforcement duties. We must now clearly establish CID as an elite federal law enforcement agency that operates within and in support of the Department of the Army.” Gregory Ford became the first civilian director of the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command

Quote VI

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. Frederick Douglass

I think that everyone reading tonight's ONT knows someone who has been afflicted with Alzheimer's Disease. SCIENTISTS MAY HAVE DISCOVERED THE CAUSE OF ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE - A MOUSE STUDY FOUND "LEAKAGE" OF TOXIC PROTEINS INTO THE BRAIN.

For years, scientists have been studying how the buildup of toxic molecules in the brain might cause or contribute to Alzheimer’s disease. But much more difficult has been figuring out what sets off the process that makes those molecules begin to accumulate in the first place.

Now, a team of researchers from Curtin University say that “leakage” of a toxic compound called beta-amyloid from the bloodstream might be the root problem, according to a mouse study published last week in the journal PLOS Biology. While it’s not yet clear whether the same process happens in humans, the discovery could give scientists a new way to track or monitor the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and, perhaps, help them develop new treatments to prevent it.

“While we previously knew that the hallmark feature of people living with Alzheimer’s disease was the progressive accumulation of toxic protein deposits within the brain called beta-amyloid, researchers did not know where the amyloid originated from, or why it deposited in the brain,” lead study author and Curtin researcher John Mamo said in a press release.

We are not a nation of laws. We are a nation of connections. And quite frankly I'm ready to throw the towel in and say "Let it fucking burn." And if I've gone too far. It is what it is.

The list of inside-the-Beltway legal players connected to Democrats in the case against Michael Sussmann, a lawyer indicted by special counsel John Durham, includes not just Mr. Sussmann’s attorneys but the judge as well.

Mr. Sussmann will face a trial judge who appears to have background connections to the FBI‘s original Russia investigation.

U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper, who is overseeing the case against Mr. Sussmann, is married to attorney Amy Jefress, who represented former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Just The News first reported Monday.

And another thing. Two and a half years of investigating and this is only the 2nd ho-hum indictment brought. Nice job there U.S. Attorney John Durham. Really fine.

Gotta love the Clinton Covid News Network, of course a FNC opinion maker is at fault.

In an interview with CNN on Monday morning, a pair of teenagers who recently lost their unvaccinated father to COVID-19 said they blamed his death on misinformation about vaccines, specifically citing reporting from Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson.

Patrick Lane, a 45-year-old Boeing designer and father of two, died from COVID-19 late last month at around the same time the U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave full approval to the Pfizer vaccine. Lane was reportedly healthy and had no underlying conditions. Yet even still, shortly after he was diagnosed, his health started quickly deteriorating.

I'm sorry your father passed. However he was a smart man and made his decision.

Who knew cash registers needed electricity to open. Not our Genius Award Winner.

A man wearing a face covering and gloves, approached the clerk and began to speak to her around 4:30 a.m.

Shortly after the power went out due to the power outage earlier reported by LES Friday morning.

After the power cut-out the man brandished a knife, and began to demand money from the clerk.
