Quotes for our Times:
Brooke Singman, Fox News Digital politics reporter: Ukraine's Zelenskyy addresses Congress, invokes 9/11, Pearl Harbor, MLK as he pleads for pivotal aid.
[Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy] proposed 'to create an association, United for Peace, a union of responsible countries that have the strength and consciousness to stop conflicts, immediately provide all the necessary assistance in 24 hours, if necessary — even weapons, if necessary, sanctions, humanitarian support, political support.'
'If such an alliance would exist today… we would be able to save thousands of lives in our country, in many countries of the world who need peace, those who suffer inhumane destruction,' Zelenskyy said.
Spencer Brown, managing editor for Townhall: Biden's remarks at 'Equal Pay' event were a gaffe-filled dumpster fire.
Right out of the gate, President Biden sought to explain who wasn't appearing at the event with him saying 'there's been a little change in the arrangement of who's on the stage because of the First Lady's husband contracted COVID, but look at this room and what you see,' Biden stated before someone off-stage in the White House pointed out that the 'First Lady's husband' is…Joe Biden.
Biden continued by referring to Doug Emhoff as 'the Second Lady' before correcting himself with (also wrong) 'First Gentleman,' listing two additional incorrect monikers for Kamala Harris' husband who is in fact the Second Gentleman and not the husband of the president nor the vice president's wife, nor a lady.

Well, recently we learned the answer because we watched it. Masks were a training exercise. Mandatory masking was a shock collar designed to teach Americans unquestioning obedience and, of course, it worked because shock collars do work. In a single day last month we watched, for example, our entire professional class dutifully changed their Twitter avatars from mask up to the now mandatory Ukrainian flag.
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and co-host of The Five: The Russia-Ukraine war is also a war between competing narratives.
Turns out a lot of these stories aren't quite true, but are just meant to inspire. They serve a purpose, but they turn you from a naive consumer of news to a pissed off cynic like me.
Problem is, that's as bad as being naive. Because for us, we want the truth. But in an era of social media and the internet, fables travel to the sun and back before the truth puts on its crocs.
My gardener said that. So all we can do is watch and listen and hope for the best. And the best we could hope for that this stupid, horrible thing ends as quickly as possible.
