Quotes for our Times:
Spencer Brown, managing editor for Townhall: 'Cloth Masks Are Little More Than Facial Decorations': CNN Medical Analyst.
Excuse me? Cloth masks — the likes of which have turned into a cottage industry peddled everywhere from Etsy to grocery store checkout lanes to the CDC's guidance— are 'little more than facial decorations' now? Got it. But the White House doesn't seem to. …
As the CDC guidance on masking — last updated on October 25, 2021 — explains, including with renderings that seem to show cloth masks, that Americans should not choose masks 'specially labeled 'surgical' N95 respirators, as those should be prioritized for healthcare personnel.' In the section addressing mask guidelines for Americans who rely on lipreading to communicate, the CDC advises 'wearing a clear mask or a cloth mask with a clear panel.'
Brian C Joondeph, MD, physician and writer: Roses are red, Crime is blue.
ABC News’ conclusion of “no clear answer” seems as clear as could be. If you defund and criticize something, expect less of it. Red cities and states, for the most part, offer residents a rosy life. At the same time, the blue locales provide not violets, but crime, murder, and mayhem. Remember this when it comes time to vote, and more importantly count the votes.
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and cohost of The Five: CNN has successfully vaccinated itself against high ratings.
Yet, it wasn't enough to target Fox News. You got to go after Trump voters, parents, the police, anyone who dared question mask mandates, they became the mouthpiece for enforced conformity.
As they mocked real crime, they happily tried to cancel you for a meme.
They ignored mobs destroying cities while trumpeting phony hate crimes.
They'd be happy if we were all on terror watch lists.
But there is a bright side. If CNN is too busy focusing all their energies on FOX, at least maybe the kids are safe.
Karl Rove, Fox News Channel (FNC) political contributor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal: Team Biden will pay a hefty price for their attacks on Manchin.
Jen Psaki essentially called Manchin a liar and a traitor to his party. Who told her to do this? …
The problem for Biden – or any president – is that once his image of competence begins to decline, only a strong demonstration on another significant issue or crisis can stop and perhaps reverse it. That will likely require a major exterior event to occur, meaning Biden’s standing with voters is increasingly out of his control.
The powers of Biden’s office are awesome, but since his actions on BBB and so many other fronts have raised serious questions about his competence, he’s entered a cycle of decline he may not be able to arrest.
