Quotes for our Times:
Larry O'Connor, host of O'Connor and Company, the politics/pop-culture and lifestyle talk show and political commentator: Stop believing the 'Republicans are blowing the midterms' propaganda.
What you saw last week in the most divisive and vitriolic presidential address in modern American history was a giant, extravagant attempt to change the subject.
He has nothing to give people to vote for, so he had to drum up an over-the-top reason to give voters something to vote against. This was not the move of a confident politician on the verge of victory. It was an act of desperation. …
But the 'analysis' you're hearing and reading right now is merely camouflaged propaganda pretending to be news.
Don't fall for it. In fact, just don't read it. Katie Pavlich, Editor of Townhall.com: White House can’t shake major ‘MAGA Republican’ miscalculation.
It's been six days since President Joe Biden stood in Independence Hall, flanked by two U.S. Marines and surrounded by ominous red lighting, to declare 'MAGA Republicans' as enemies of the state.
Since then, Biden has been under fire from Republicans, Democrats, Independents and even some in the media for making the charge.
And the issue continues to be a distraction in the White House briefing room where Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre was again asked about it Tuesday by multiple reporters.
Andrea Widburg, writer for American Thinker: Stacey Abrams: Biden’s press secretary flat-out lies about Democrats and election denial.
I wanted to be amused by Jean-Pierre’s stupidity and mendacity, but laughter eluded me. America’s most powerful institutions (the federal government and the media) have spoken, and they’ve said clearly that what’s sauce for the Trump goose will never be sauce for the Biden gander. In true Orwellian fashion, they are instructing us to believe, all evidence to the contrary that 2+2=5. That is, when they opposed Trump’s election, they were using the First Amendment to speak truth to power and stand up for democracy while, when Republicans opposed Biden’s election, they were engaged in sedition that falls outside of the First Amendment and, therefore, deserves to be brutally suppressed.
Silvio Canto, Jr., writer for American Thinker: There are just two kinds of speeches in the world.
Speech A is where you enumerate all of the good things that happened under your presidency. For example, President Reagan's 'Morning in America' in 1984. Vote for me because you are better off today or something like that.
Speech B is what we've hearing from President Biden lately — I can't say enough good about me but the other guy will make things worse.
