Quotes for our Times:
Leah Barkoukis, online features editor at Townhall.com: Merriam-Webster Dictionary edits its definition of 'female'.
The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh, who recently released the documentary “What Is a Woman?” said the dictionary bowing to the woke mob was inevitable.
'It was bound to happen. Merriam-Webster has changed its dictionary definition of 'female' to appease the trans activists,' he wrote on Twitter.
'Never mind that the trans activists have always insisted that sex and 'gender identity' are two different things. If they can rewrite the dictionary then they can certainly redefine their own made up jargon as they please,' Walsh added.
Tim Graham, executive editor of News-Busters and director of media analysis for the Media Research Center: The media secretly hated Biden all this time?
This is the arrogance of the liberal media. Any attempt at 'honest reporting' trashes all Republicans as 'radical and antidemocratic.' So 'honesty' is defined as the opposite of 'bothsidesism.' Honesty requires keeping the 'antidemocratic' radicals off the Jan. 6 committee and off all the respectable TV interview shows. Earth to [ Washington Post columnist Perry Bacon, Jr.] Perry: The liberal media distorts the national discourse by barely featuring Republicans who aren't as anti-Trump as Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.
Imagine that. The Washington Post crowd posits that 'democracy' requires positioning the conservatives 'in darkness.'
Chad Wolf, former acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and executive director and chair of the Center for Homeland Security and Immigration at the America First Policy Institute: Biden’s assault on Border Patrol agents continues even though they were exonerated.
Leading a law enforcement agency like the U.S. Border Patrol takes special care and judgment. Politics should never take precedence over upholding and defending the law. We must return to a time when Border Patrol agents feel empowered to do their jobs and have the support of their leadership, regardless of politics. When leaders make law enforcement decisions to placate political agendas, the result is what we are experiencing today — a never-ending assault on the Border Patrol and the fallout that naturally accompanies it.
Liz Peek, Fox News contributor and former partner of major bracket Wall Street firm Wertheim & Company: Five reasons Joe Biden will not be 2024 Democrat presidential candidate.
Meanwhile, Biden might not beat Trump. Though the New York Times poll cited earlier says he holds the advantage, other recent soundings show Biden losing to Trump. People may not like Donald J. Trump, but they were better off when he was president.
How will Democrats stave off further disaster and keep Biden from running again? My guess: party leaders and his wife Jill will convince him to step aside. The real question is not whether they will intervene to stop this train wreck, but when.
