Quotes for our Times:
Leah Barkoukis, online features editor at Townhall.com: Dem Senator: 'I think Donald Trump was right…'.
“I think Donald Trump was right. I mean, TikTok is an enormous threat,” [Democrat Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia] told host Shannon Bream. “So, if you're a parent, and you've got a kid on TikTok, I would be very, very concerned. All of that data that your child is inputting and receiving is being stored somewhere in Beijing.' …
'This is not something you would normally hear me say, but Donald Trump was right on TikTok years ago,' he said. 'If your country uses Huawei, if your kids are on TikTok … the ability for China to have undue influence is a much greater challenge and a much more immediate threat than any kind of actual, armed conflict.'
Derek Hunter, Washington, DC, based writer, radio host and political strategist: Pelosi gets worse as she gets ready to leave Congress.
I’m all for people retiring from politics, especially horrible people, and I don’t think we need protection against them milking suckers to pay for their lives afterwards. If you’re dumb enough to give what you earn to people who literally wouldn’t give a single damn about your existence if they had a pocket full of damns it was their job to give, that’s on you. All I ask is for an education system that helps people raise their IQ above that of their shoe size so not only do con artists like Nancy Pelosi lose the ability to scam them, but we don’t get people like her elected to office to begin with. Is that too much to ask?
Matt Vespa, Senior Editor at Townhall. com: Is this the most unbelievable narrative about the Hunter Biden laptop?
The reasoning behind the censorship was self-explanatory: the Left wanted to win an election, and the contents of the laptop placed that in jeopardy. Atheist Sam Harris, a frequent guest on Real Time with Bill Ma her, dropped an alternative narrative about Crackhead Hunter’s laptop that not even Maher could take seriously. Harris was a guest on the HBO host’s podcast, where he said that the media industry had no time to verify the laptop. Maher scoffed at the notion, as the liberal comedian has torched the liberal media for censoring this story.
Victor Davis Hanson, noted historian and social critic: The same old, same old deja vu.
Yet one thing that will be different this time around is that the Biden administration is in power. Garland remains an unapologetic, embittered partisan. He is fresh off siccing a now-weaponized FBI on school kids' parents and various MAGA enemies of the state.
After two prior failed impeachment trials, a failed special counsel's investigation, and a failed and biased January 6 committee probe, Washington government lawyers know that their last and only Wile E. Coyote chance of catching the Roadrunner and now presidential candidate Trump is to get at least something into the hands of a Washington, D.C. jury.
