Tim Graham, executive editor of News-Busters and director of media analysis for the Media Research Center: Kamala's unchallenged life stories.
When liberals swoon over their 'trailblazers,' they often love retelling their life stories … just as these politicians tell them. In a cover story with women's magazine Elle, Harris recounted how 'she remembers being wheeled through an Oakland, California, civil rights march in a stroller with no straps with her parents and her uncle.' At some point, she fell from the stroller and none of the adults noticed. When they returned, little Kamala was upset. 'My mother tells the story about how I'm fussing,' Harris says, 'and she's like, 'Baby, what do you want? What do you need?' And I just looked at her and I said, 'Fweedom.'' Ben Shapiro, political commentator:
How bureaucracy killed hundreds of thousands of Americans.
We now know that the miraculous Moderna vaccine for COVID-19 had been designed by Jan. 13, 2020. That was just two days after the sequencing of the virus had been made public. As David Wallace-Wells writes for New York magazine, 'the Moderna vaccine design took all of one weekend. … By the time the first American death was announced a month later, the vaccine had already been manufactured and shipped to the National Institutes of Health for the beginning of its Phase I clinical trial.' Meanwhile, for six weeks, Dr. Anthony Fauci assured Americans that there was little to worry about with COVID-19.
Ed Brodow, political commentator, negotiation expert, and author: Waving goodbye to the America we all knew and loved.
In spite of the media's efforts to hide the truth, the public knows what is going on. Actor James Woods tweeted, '70,000,000 Americans are outraged about this befouled election.' 'We don't accept this fraudulent result.' Whenever the president tries to expose the fraud, the media poison the airwaves with the same mendacious phrase: 'Trump's baseless allegations.' It makes my skin crawl every time I see this lie repeated by CNN, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. The media are no longer free to express conservative viewpoints and have abdicated their role as the republic's watchdog.
Ed Timperlake, writer for American Thinker: Vaccine priorities: Why Americans have good reason to despise Congress.
The mind boggles at such a selfish group of individuals serving in Congress.
Let this moment in time forever reflect that the Democrat-controlled House and the Republican-controlled Senate, if the members and staff do not meet CDC guidelines for their place in the queue but jump the line. What they are saying to the most deserving among us, our combat disabled veterans: Tough luck for you, we simply do not care if you die alone in the dark.
