This Week’s Quote From The Book: “…[H.W.] Bush surrendered the core principles that distinguished the American republic from the “union” (vise) of “Soviet” “socialist” ones (dictatorships). In other words, Bush there and then gave away the store.”

People Tell Us How QAnon Ruined Their Relationships, Mark Lamoureaux, Vice

CS Commentary: We have written extensively on QAnon and Pizzagate – see our Politics Common Sense Interpretation Page for more. As we have noted, it is primarily liberally biased investigators that report on ‘Q’ for a number of reasons, the top one being that it is an alt-right ‘theory.’ Vice is another liberal-leaning site with its own bias, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t insight or interesting material here. As our most recent Medium articles show, Trump insiders like Sebastian Gorka have completely demolished and disavowed ‘Q,’ as have failed predictions, failed core theories, and common sense and rationality. In addition to the proofs we provide, see this, written 10 months ago: Here Is Every QAnon Prediction That’s Failed To Come True, The Daily Dot. For another recent updated perspective on current news and QAnon, see, The Epstein Scandal Is Giving QAnon Everything Pizzagate Couldn’t, Tess Owen, Vice

Rose Lavelle and Kelly O’Hara Talk World Cup, CNN

CS Commentary: The CNN commentator tries, weakly, to push the women’s ‘unequal’ pay issue. Wake up CNN! The chart in the video says it all: US women receive 23% of the revenue they bring in, while US men only receive 7% of the revenue they generate. Seems like the women have a pretty good deal. The two players are non-commital about a trip to the White House. The last time we checked that was a ‘United States’ in their team name. If they want to raise their revenue and increase it to ‘equal’ pay maybe they should try representing the whole nation and not just half of it.

CS Commentary: We disagree with a few of these, and more with the order. The Americans and Dexter out of the Top 10 and Justified ahead of both them? Doesn’t make sense. And should ‘Hannibal’ even be in here? The first season was good, then subsequent seasons were anything but a ‘work of genius.” Boring. We also heartily disagree with most of the top 5 and wonder if most of them should even be in this list.

Quotes Of The Month:

“One can say, I think this is going to happen but I shouldn’t bet on it, because if you haven’t done something three times before successfully, don’t assume you know how to do it.” – Ray Dalio, Bridgewater Associates
