A compilation of quotations on a variety of issues by national, state and regional writers, well-known personalities, just plain everyday people and from various publications collected by the editors of THE ADVANCE.

Quotes for our Times:

Julio Rivera, business and political strategist, the Editorial Director for Reactionary Times, and a political commentator and columnist: The Bushes, the Clintons, China… and Trump.

The truth in all this is, both political parties prior to the 2016 election victory of Donald Trump had largely failed America. American Politicians sat on a global lead and allowed for the emergence of a new evil empire that has effectively filled the power vacuum left behind by the collapse of the Soviet Union. For the survival of America in the new global landscape, at a minimum, another term from the “political outsider” Trump is of vital necessity.

Cortney O'Brien, Townhall's Managing News Editor: Oops: Hundreds of Michigan overseas mail-in ballots omitted a pretty important name.

Election officials recently discovered that, in lieu of Mike Pence, was the name Jeremy Cohen, Jo Jorgenson’s Libertarian running mate.

Here we have another example of human error when it comes to mail-in ballots. And yet Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have been pushing for mass mail-in voting, arguing that it's important to offer voters the option during the coronavirus pandemic. Congressional Republicans and President Trump have pushed back, leading Pelosi and associates to accuse the White House of trying to hold the Postal Service hostage to try and guarantee his re-election.

Leah Barkoukis, online features editor at Minneapolis City Council members who called for dismantling police now complain there's not enough policing.

At least one council member, who is still an advocate for creating a community safety agency to replace the police, said he was “flabbergasted” by the change in tune from his colleagues.

“What I am sort of flabbergasted by right now is colleagues, who a very short time ago were calling for abolition, are now suggesting we should be putting more resources and funding into Minneapolis PD,” council member Phillipe Cunningham said, reports MPR News.

In June, the city council voted to replace the police department with a new public safety unit called the Department of Community Safety and Violence Prevention. They hoped to get the issue on the November ballot but that move was blocked by the Minneapolis Charter Commission.

Ben Shapiro, political commentator: Lawnsign virtue signaling and the death of politics.

But, of course, the sign conveys nothing beyond a self-congratulatory insistence that the sign owner is a better human than other humans. By phrases like 'SCIENCE IS REAL,' the sign owner conveys that if you attribute California wildfires to anything beyond Trumpian evil and climate change, you deny science. Which is anti-scientific, of course. …

Lawn signs don't solve problems. But they do make us feel good. Which is what politics are supposed to achieve nowadays in the absence of actual solutions. Perhaps at some point we might ask why politics make us feel so rotten these days.
