Quotes for our Times:

Steve McCann, journalist for American Thinker: The 21st century Ugly Americans.

In exchange for their support, the radical left’s policy demands, such as open borders, abrogation of the First and Second Amendments, defunding the police and citizenship for illegal aliens had to be implicitly validated by the same ruling elites that for years had opposed these measures. Additionally, faux issues such as “systemic racism,” “white supremacy,” “critical race theory,” and “non-binary gender identities” were tacitly endorsed and dominated the national discussion. This gave birth to a new Inquisition — cancel culture — which was unleashed across the United States and which is now invading Europe.

Guy Benson,'s Political Editor: Psaki: Let's avoid 'labels' about this border non-crisis — and talk to DHS because it's not 'our program'.

Not only do we have a border crisis underway, we have a border crisis in the midst of a global pandemic. And the federal government is releasing COVID-positive illegal immigrants into the United States, and the local authorities who perform the positive tests have no authority to stop this from happening. I'd suggest asking President Biden about this, but we're approaching 50 days with no formal press conference, easily the longest such stretch for any president in 100 years. As a back-up, I'd recommend asking the White House Press Secretary, but she'd probably just punt it over to DHS or HHS or some other agency. 'Not our program.'

Brad Slager covers politics and the business side of the Hollywood industry: Journalism is using Qanon as a crutch.

The very nature of Qanon makes this so easy for the press, and it allows them to attribute anything they choose to the conspiracy. The fact that Qanon has no discernible leadership nor a clearinghouse location for its intel allows for the press to accuse anything of its choosing to the movement. Once the unproven attachment is made the target of their scorn is dutifully smeared and discredited. There is no proof needed because of the hidden nature of the group, so anything can become a valid claim.

Leah Barkoukis is the online features editor at 'Written in hell by the devil himself': The bill Mike Lee warns will cement democratic rule for decades.

The For the People Act centralizes power, he said, allowing the federal government to make decisions it “really has no business making.”

Though elections have always been carried out at the local and state level, Lee said the reason Democrats want to concentrate power in Washington, D.C. is “in an effort to ensure an institutional revolutionary Democratic Party of sorts, one that can remain in power for many decades to come.”

He also called the bill “wildly unconstitutional” and said “bad things are going to happen” if power is taken away from states and centralized in D.C.
