A compilation of quotations on a variety of issues by national, state and regional writers, well-known personalities, just plain everyday people and from various publications collected by the editors of THE ADVANCE.

Quotes for our Times:

Liz Peek, Fox News contributor and political commentator: A vote for Biden is a vote for President Kamala Harris. Nikki Haley is right, America.

In other words, Harris is, characteristically, spewing dishonest talking points instead of engaging in thoughtful or serious debate.

What the Times fails to mention, is that Harris is more visible on the campaign trail mainly because she’s filling a void. Joe Biden has done little campaigning, for good reason. Almost any time he steps to a microphone, his aids steel themselves for the inevitable goof – not knowing where he is, getting facts and dates wrong, or wandering lost from the podium. These are not Republican talking points; these are signs that Biden should not run again.

Jonathan Turley, Fox News Media contributor and the Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University: What Trump's scowling mugshot means for an America full of rage.

Even law professors and legal commentators have called our Constitution 'trash' and called for the country to 'reclaim America from constitutionalism.' That is the greatest danger of these times: that our deep divisions will cause us to lose faith in our defining values and in each other. The Trump mugshot captures a defining moment for our country. It will define us going forward.

Tim Busch is the founder of the Napa Institute, a Catholic organization: Pro-lifers should back a federal 15-week abortion ban.

Only the pro-life movement can move the GOP in this direction. Pro-lifers are the beating heart of the Republican Party, just as the pro-abortion camp is core to the Democratic Party. If we rally around a federal 15week ban, we can rally voters and lawmakers to enact this policy in future years.

That would be a huge improvement over the abortion regime that existed under Roe, and the states that want to go further still could. While a 15-week ban is far from perfect, it would give the pro-life movement a chance to prepare for the bigger fight that lies ahead.

Let’s protect as many mothers and children as we can today, so we can redouble our efforts to change minds, win hearts, and transform the culture tomorrow.

Mark Levin, host of FOX News Channel's Life, Liberty & Levin: The Trump prosecutors have a grand jury problem. Where are the defense attorneys?

The use of these grand juries, where there is obvious evidence of chicanery by these prosecutors, must be scrutinized at the front end of these various cases. Thus, the question I have is: Where the heck are the attorneys representing President Trump and the other defendants? Why do they seem so passive in the face of potential grand jury abuses and, frankly, other government misconduct?

This juncture of the process is highly significant. In fact, the Supreme Court has held that the defendant loses any right to challenge the grand jury process, at least at the federal level, once a trial is held on the indictment.
