A compilation of quotations on a variety of issues by national, state and regional writers, well-known personalities, just plain everyday people and from various publications collected by the editors of THE ADVANCE.
Quotes for our Times:
Senator Rand Paul, Republican, Kentucky, and author: Here's my plan to hold Congress' big spenders accountable – and get transparency for American taxpayers.
For what it’s worth, I have legislation in the Senate to fix the issue, a resolution to give members ample time to read the bills before they vote. It would also increase transparency and incentivize legislation to be shorter.
Just imagine! What if we had one day for every 20 pages to read the bills before they were brought up for a vote? We would have had 137 days to truly consider whether the American people’s hard-earned tax dollars were worthy of all the ridiculous spending items included in the recently passed omnibus.
Thomas Homan, former Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Fox News Channel contributor: Biden tries to spin his disastrous immigration record.
In the first year of the Biden administration, we saw an historic illegal immigration crisis where over 2 million people entered our country illegally and in that same year, ICE has the fewest removals in the history of the Agency. It’s not mismanagement and it’s not incompetence. This is by design.
But you can’t have national security if you don’t have border security. Border security is far less effective if you don’t have interior enforcement, and the Biden administration has effectively killed it.
Tucker Carlson, host of FOX News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight: Answering this question should have been simple for Ketanji Brown Jackson.
In 2022, the power of science and literature crumble in the face of the trans lobby. So, actually, Ketanji Jackson's academic credentials are not, strictly speaking, all that relevant here, but still pause for a second and marinate in the awe-inspiring stupidity of her answer. 'What's a woman? I don't know. I'm not a biologist.' Oh, we see how this works.
Hey, Ketanji Jackson, is it raining? I don't know. I'm not a meteorologist.
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and cohost of The Five: Wasn't Biden supposed to be the calm after the Stormy?
So where are we now in this post-Trump world? Well, the media is telling us that we need to eat lentils, put our dogs to sleep, and give up our cars.
Gas is at 6 bucks a gallon in L.A. There's crime, inflation, overdoses, death. Under Trump, the only stress was psychological but ephemeral, coming from funny tweets and fleeting but relentless insults.
It was like following Don Rickles on Twitter. But under Joe, it's not scary words, but scary deeds. We went from a president who insulted celebrities to a toothless doofus stumbling into World War III.
