Quotes for our Times:
William Sullivan, writer for American Thinker: What issue was really at the heart of the Civil War, and is it relevant today?
Again, if the people of a state surmise that the federal government is pursuing policy which compromises the liberty and prosperity of its citizens, does that state have to conform to what is perceived by the people of the state as unconstitutional abuse of power, or can it express its autonomy and liberty without the prospect of being attacked by the federal government for having done so?
Ted Noel MD, retired Anesthesiologist/Intensivist who podcasts and posts on social media as DoctorTed and @vidzette: Leftist Supreme Court Justices abandoned the law and made up facts.
The President is not a king. He does not get to rule with a pen and a phone, and if our Supreme Court values our Republic, he’ll get slapped down. Again. If they don’t, then everything our Founding Fathers fought and died for is likely to be lost, because there will no longer be any defining rules.
Guy Benson, Townhall.com's Political Editor: Savage: Romney shames Biden, rips democrats' filibuster hypocrisy.
In short, Biden is abandoning his own long-held stance on the filibuster, insisting that Democrats change Senate rules in order to fundamentally uproot American election administration, all with zero Republican input, in a tied Senate. Democrats seek to supersede state-level laws across the country, eliminate popular voter ID laws, and enshrine fraud-inviting 'ballot harvesting' practices, among other toxic provisions. And if you disagree, President Unity intones, you're throwing in your lot with Bull Connor. What an ugly, disgusting speech. What an abject failure of a presidency.
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and co-host of The Five: The out-of-touch media should be glad Americans haven't caught on to them.
Jan. 6 was just one example. While CNN and others gushed endlessly about their own PTSD, the rest of America was like, what?
It's the same reliable hysteria they applied to collusion, Covington, Kavanaugh. Remember the classics — that perfect phone call was worse than Watergate? Climate change means the Earth dies in eight years. Jan. 6 is Pearl Harbor all over again.
You see the disconnect between them and you, and it's this gulf between their claims and actual reality that mirrors exactly the gulf between the press and the public they don't understand. And if you listen to CNN, well, it's got to be America's fault.
Tucker Carlson, host of FOX News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight: Biden's speeches reveal what he thinks of Americans.
Just hours before Joe Biden spoke, the Department of Justice announced the formation of a new domestic terrorism unit. … It's designed to hunt down and punish anyone who opposes the federal government or is otherwise 'anti-authority.' Anti-authority? Who's that? Well, pretty much at this point, all thinking people who aren't directly on the federal payroll. That means you.
It means all of us got the message? If you think voters ought to show I.D. at the polls, you could be hearing from the FBI because you're a threat. On the other hand, speaking papers, you should know that your COVID papers are still mandatory, and becoming more so because vax cards are not at all like driver's licenses at polling places, they're not racist. Vax cards are holy and they're essential.
