Quotes for our Times:
Vince Coyner, journalist for American Thinker: What if proof of 2020 presidential election fraud develops?.
If it’s possible to steal the presidency with impunity, what office in the nation is beyond reach? The simple answer is none, and that matters because the government has police power and once the Constitution becomes superfluous, the coercive powers of government suddenly have no limits. And for those who say that the Constitution still stands, the Constitution is nothing more than a piece of paper. It is the citizens’ loyalty to that Constitution and the system built upon it that make it work.
Leah Barkoukis, online features editor at Townhall.com: Biden walks away from infrastructure talks with Capito.
'Despite the progress we made in our negotiations, the president continued to respond with offers that included tax increases as his pay for, instead of several practical options that would have not been harmful to individuals, families, and small businesses,' [Sen. Shelley Moore Capito] said in a statement. 'While I appreciate President Biden's willingness to devote so much time and effort to these negotiations, he ultimately chose not to accept the very robust and targeted infrastructure package, and instead, end our discussions.'

Liberal writer: 'Anyone who flies an American flag on a pickup truck is a…different breed of white people'.
Look, I may be biased because I have white parents, but what is this crap? I'll keep asking it. I know it's nothing new. The Left seems to have two obsessions. Donald Trump and white people. The latter of which they find new ways to manufacture false narratives in their minds to keep them perpetually miserable. Countless Americans drive pick-up trucks. Are we back to these snobby, elitist hot takes from the coastal and urban elites? I saw a Black man driving a pick-up truck last week. Is he a neo-Nazi? It just goes to the heart of the matter which is that the Democratic Party and progressive America, in general, do not get rural America. And because they don't get it—they hate it. They hate these people. Period. What's so wrong with flying the American flag? What's wrong with patriotism? This is why the Left is mocked constantly. This is why these people are killjoys at the parties. Who would want to speak with someone who is in constant misery about being…an American?
Justin Haskins, director of the Stopping Socialism Project and a research fellow at The Heartland Institute, a free-market think tank: Failing upward: How Biden’s bloated budget could cause an economic collapse.
The U.S. economy does not need more debt, higher deficits or larger government programs. It needs the Biden administration to restore fiscal sanity by reducing government debt to responsible levels and to limit burdensome taxes and rules so that businesses can grow and Americans can get back to work.
Unfortunately, that’s not likely to occur. Americans everywhere should plan accordingly.
