Quotes for our Times:
Spencer Brown, managing editor for Townhall: Is Biden about to use executive power to 'cancel' student loans?
However, if Biden thinks erasing some or all of the $1 trillion worth of student debt — that is, burdening all taxpayers with the debts incurred by those who pursued expensive degrees in low-demand fields — is a quick fix to turn around his approval numbers, he's likely in for another supposedly 'bold' decision that leads to significant blowback for him and his party.
Tucker Carlson, host of FOX News Channel’s flagship primetime cable news program, Tucker Carlson Tonight: Because of Elon Musk, tyrants are grieving.
Musk buying Twitter means you just became a little more powerful. …
'I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter,' Musk wrote today on his new platform, 'because that is what free speech means.' Now, that sounds like an entirely American sentiment, but in this atmosphere, that is a revolutionary posture. Of the five companies that control the flow of virtually all information that is consumed by the citizens of this country, Twitter is by far the smallest of the group, but it doesn't matter. One platform going rogue is enough to break the monopoly. That means you now have real options for expressing yourself.
David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United, the 2016 deputy campaign manager for Donald Trump for President, and the former chief investigator for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform and Oversight during the Clinton administration: On Hunter Biden, White House can run but it cannot hide much longer.
Furthermore, House Republicans should be putting pressure on the Democrat-controlled Congress to start asking questions about Hunter Biden now — or it’s going to make the tsunami that’s coming their way in November that much worse.
Never before has a party in control of Congress been allowed to ignore a story of this magnitude. Hunter’s international business ties to China, Russia and Ukraine alone are enough for even a casual observer to wonder if President Biden is compromised.
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and cohost of The Five: Elon Musk buying Twitter is great news for fans of free speech.
Finally, Jameela Jamil has announced she's leaving Twitter because Musk bought it, which raises the question, who the hell is Jameela Jamil? We’ll tell her the same thing we tell lefties who always say they're fleeing to Canada – don't let the door hit your a** on the way out. They're like drunks getting thrown out of a club, yelling, 'you just lost a customer.' Wow, how is Twitter going to survive without a B-list English actress who's about as popular as trans-fat?
