Quotes for our Times:
William Sullivan, writer for American Thinker: Federalism, not Democracy, is what protects American liberty.
And in spite of the progressive left’s best efforts to hide it, the truth is catching on. We were told masks would protect kids. Florida proves it untrue, and we all know it. We were told social distancing was science. A government official who helped disseminate that lie has told the public that this was untrue, if Florida’s disproving it wasn’t enough. We were told vaccine mandates are the only way to get COVID under control. And yet, there stands Florida, without a vaccine mandate and still boasting among the lowest COVID case rates in the country.
Florida is the big middle-finger of the American people, directed to the federal government. And other states are thankfully following the lead of that state’s heroic governor, Ron DeSantis.
Terence P. Jeffrey, editor-in-chief of CNSnews.com: As Biden met with the Pope, his DOJ filed a brief claiming the right to abort a baby with a beating heart.
In a Sept. 27 presentation to the Pontifical Academy for Life, the pope stated that abortion 'is truly murder.'
Thus, as Biden met with Pope Francis at the Vatican last Friday, his solicitor general was back in Washington filing a brief with the Supreme Court claiming on behalf of Biden's administration that murdering an unborn baby with a beating heart is a 'right' the Court must protect.
Spencer Brown, managing editor for Townhall: Attempt to disband Minneapolis Police Department fails at ballot box.
Republican National Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel applauded Minneapolis voters' decision and heralded the vote as a sign that the Democrats' 'defund the police' movement is untenable to voters even in the bluest of cities.
Leo Terrell, civil rights attorney who currently serves as a FOX News Media contributor: Elections put Democrats on notice — hear us or fear us in 2022.
The November election puts elected Democrats on notice — hear us now or fear our vote in 2022. You cannot rely on us anymore to do your dirty work. The time has come to earn our vote.
Laura Hollis, attorney and educator: Dear Republicans: Here's how to win.
Finally, nothing you do will matter if our elections are not secure. Do not let up on efforts to ensure election integrity. Every state needs statutes and policies that protect the actual votes of its citizens and prevent deceit and fraud. Call out all those who characterize these policies as 'racist.' It should be abundantly clear by now that 'racism' is the argument the left trots out when it has nothing else — which is most of the time.
