Quotes for our Times:
Steve McCann, writer for American Thinker: The traits of the authoritarians among us.
Joe Biden, a life-long pathological liar, will never acknowledge that his Afghanistan withdrawal was an unmitigated disaster because he sincerely believes that it was not, as he achieved his goal of getting out of Afghanistan. Biden and the Democrats are unconcerned about the cratering economy brought about by unbridled government spending, money creation and inflation, as they believe it is an inconvenient by-product of their unerring vision of a quasi-socialist economy.
Spencer Brown, managing editor for Townhall: 40+ radical programs democrats don't want you to notice in Biden's budget.
Contradicting one of his own promises, Biden's budget will increase taxes on 'Americans at every income level' (RSC [Republican Study Committee] point #35) as '$2 trillion in tax hikes will fall on those making under $400,000 per year, contrary to what the White House says.'
And because all of this nonsense will require and expand the number of unelected bureaucrats in the federal government, the bill will provide for an '$80 billion slush fund to hire an 87,000-IRS-agent army to carry out the Biden administration’s plan to review every account above a $600 balance or with more than $600 of transactions in a year' (RSC point #40).
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and cohost of The Five: No kid cares about who Superman kisses.
My point – who really gives a damn? No kid cares or wants to care about who Superman is kissing. The guy is faster than a locomotive and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! I think that might pique a kid’s curiosity more than what or who he hooks up with. …
So that raises a question: why is this happening? Why is this being forced into a medium where it's not necessary? It’s like announcing they have gluten-free crusts at a pie-eating contest. Nobody asked, and nobody cares. But that doesn't matter.
Stephen Moore, economist and author: Biden thinks climate change is a bigger threat than China. He'll be sorry.
The danger is that we now have a president in Biden who thinks that climate change is a bigger threat to the world than the Maoists in Beijing.
And make no mistake about it; the communists are back in charge in China. Jinping has basically announced himself to be president for life, as democracy and free elections fly out the window. China is also sprinting back to command and control fascist government and industry 'cooperation.' That's a model that will eventually implode, but as we learned from the Soviet menace, they can do a lot of damage to peace and prosperity in the meantime.
