Quotes for our Times:
John Stossel, author of No They Can't: Why Government Fails, but Individuals Succeed: The poor get richer.
For thousands of years, the world had almost no wealth creation. Only when some countries tried capitalism did GDP grow.
Capitalists helped everyone, including the poor.
The media suggest that today's wealth gap proves that's no longer true. But they are wrong. Capitalism's gradual progress continues. Census Bureau data shows that the average family today is almost a third richer than 40 years ago (yes, adjusted for inflation).
Leah Barkoukis, online features editor at Townhall.com: New survey about inflation is bad news for Joe Biden.
In a recent Deutsche Bank report about inflation, the bank took issue with the Federal Reserve's new framework tolerating higher inflation.
'We are witnessing the most important shift in global macro policy since the Reagan/ Volcker axis 40 years ago. Fiscal injections are now 'off the charts' at the same time as the Fed's modus operandi has shifted to tolerate higher inflation,' the report said. 'Never before have we seen such coordinated expansionary fiscal and monetary policy. This will continue as output moves above potential. This is why this time is different for inflation.'
Julio Rosas, Senior Writer for Townhall:
Trump says if Biden or Harris won't visit the border to see their crisis, then he will.
'If this weren’t bad enough, Biden and Harris won’t even tour the scenes of the wreckage they created, or come down and visit with the Border Patrol and ICE heroes risking their lives to defend our Nation at a time when the White House is doing everything it can to make their job totally impossible,' [Trump] added. 'What Biden and Harris have done, and are continuing to do on our border, is a grave and willful dereliction of duty.'
J.B. Shurk, American Thinker journalist:
Biden is a joke on the world stage.
Which part of all that is too much to ask of the 'most powerful man in the world'? The standing part, the speaking English part, or the idea that Biden can appear in public that long without forgetting where he is or why he's there? If America needed any reminder that its doddering old fool of a puppet president lost what little mental fitness he once had sometime around when he was complimenting Barack Obama for being surprisingly 'clean' for a black man, it has seen more than any nation should have to stomach as Bag-o-Bones stumbles around Europe.
Terence P. Jeffrey, editor in chief of CNSnews.com: Biden wants to make Catholics pay for murder.
Biden sent a budget to Congress last month that did not include the Hyde Amendment, and, thus, would allow federal funding of abortion.
In other words, he would take money from every American Catholic with a taxable income — as well as from every other American with a taxable income — and then use some of that money to fund what the church correctly describes as the murder of unborn children.
