Quotes for our Times:
Katie Pavlich, Editor of Townhall.com: Biden turns Texas horror into a partisan screed full of bad jokes.
He also claimed it was time for Congress to 'do something,' but did not say what specific law would have prevented the killer from carrying out his heinous crimes. He blamed the situation on 'the gun lobby.'
Tucker Carlson, host of FOX News Channel’s flagship primetime cable news program, Tucker Carlson Tonight: The President addresses the nation following Uvalde killings.
The President of the United States, frail, confused, bitterly partisan, desecrating the memory of recently murdered children with tired talking points of the Democratic Party, dividing the country in a moment of deep pain rather than uniting.
Marc Siegel, M.D., Clinical Professor of Medicine and a practicing internist at NYU Langone Medical Center: We now know who stopped the Uvalde shooter.
Despite Border Patrol agents' and other authorities' heroic response to the horrific tragedy, President Biden did not once mention the first responders who intervened to stop the shooter. Instead, Biden missed the mark and failed to act as the unifier he portrayed himself to be on the campaign trail in 2020.
Rather than praising the courage of agents who raced into the school without backup, Biden called for 'courage' among lawmakers to 'stand up to the gun lobby' without saying what, if any, action by Congress could have prevented Tuesday's tragedy.
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and co-host of The Five: Biden takes every opportunity to divide America.
I mean, he was able to destroy a country that was doing just fine when he took over in just months. He replaced not getting us into endless wars with the brink of World War Three. Domestically, he's a double-barreled disaster. Sure, he's an empty vessel. But the emptiness has been filled by an opportunistic infection called Wokeism.
He's like a newborn child adopted by the Manson family. He isn't merely a president. He's a host. A host to a parasitic disease that infected his party and our institutions. So we got to localize this infection. And forget Monkeypox. We got a pox in D.C. and Joe's the monkey. If he invites you to a rave, don't go.
Chuck DeVore, vice president with the Texas Public Policy Foundation and served in the California legislature for six years: What Biden's Taiwan comments mean for China and the US.
The Biden administration is faltering and uncertain, reflecting the leadership at the top. Republicans are likely to sweep the midterm elections due to Biden’s terrible track record on inflation, domestic energy and the economy. But one area where Republicans must do all they can to bolster the Biden administration is Taiwan policy.
A Chinese takeover of Taiwan is fatal to America’s standing in the Pacific—the most important region in the world for our country in the 21st century.
