“In a recent speech at Hillsdale College, prominent historian Victor Davis Hansen made the case that the ‘2020 election is about civilization vs. anarchy.’ It’s no accident that he discusses heavily how media, academic, and political institutions have sided with, funded, or simply attempted to justify the looting, violence, and the suppression of competing ideas is effecting (sic) not just the election, but the culture. The goal, he states, is to transform ‘the structure of America so that it can’t revert back to America’.” – Troy Smith, “To squash civil unrest, the USA must remember its virtuous roots” – American Thinker, October 4, 2020.

“In simple terms: The head of the CIA refuses to make public documents showing criminal wrongdoing in the government because she’s scared of losing her job or going to jail. That’s despicable, irrespective of whether she’s a good administrator or has otherwise handled her job in exemplary fashion. If you participate in an attempted coup, you pay the price… It might be that this report about Haspel’s despicable behavior is what motivated President Trump, while he was still in Walter Reed hospital, to order that more documents get declassified…” – Andrea Widburg, “Will the truth about the Russia hoax finally emerge?” – American Thinker, October 6th, 2020.
