Quotes for our Times:

Byron York, chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner: The 'No Labels' joke.

In any event, the search for a candidate goes on. The problem is, the lack of interest of high-level political players in running on a No Labels ticket means the process has become something of a joke. Perhaps No Labels officials could have an 'Idol'-style competition to identify a candidate. Or maybe they could hold a drawing — you've got to enter to win! Or perhaps they could just auction off the nomination to the highest bidder. In the end, though, who is going to take this seriously?

Mia Cathell, reporter for Townhall focusing on fact-checking and investigative stories: Fani Willis handed 'get out of jail free' card…for now.

Willis is additionally being investigated by a Republican-led Georgia state Senate special committee and the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, which has subpoenaed documents in possession of the DA's office after a whistleblower alleged that the Willis administration misused federal funds, blowing a $488,000 U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) grant on 'swag,' Macbooks, and travel. (The federal funding was supposed to finance an advocacy center for at-risk youth in the county, but it never opened.)

Betsy McCaughey, Ph.D, former Lt. Governor of New York State and author of Beating Obamacare: Is Laken Riley's life worth less than George Floyd's?

Kelly Girtz, Democratic mayor of Athens, Georgia, where Riley was killed, insists the focus should be on the individual perpetrator, not migrants. That's ridiculous. Was the focus only on Derek Chauvin, the cop with his knee on Floyd's neck?

Riley's murder should ignite demand for rigorous vetting of migrants entering the U.S.

Riley is dead because the Biden administration lets anyone in and lies about it.

Liz Peek, Fox News contributor and political commentator: The issue that could cost Trump the 2024 campaign.

Haley commented in one GOP debate, 'I don’t judge anyone for being pro-choice, and I don’t want them to judge me for being pro-life.' She urged her rivals, 'Let’s find consensus. … We don’t need to divide America over this issue anymore.'

Last year in Ohio, a state Donald Trump won by 8 points in 2020, voters approved by a 57% majority an amendment to the state’s constitution which would protect abortion rights. In that vote, the pro-abortion forces outraised the pro-life opponents nearly three-to-one, bringing in tens of millions of dollars from out-of-state groups. That win encouraged Democrats to ensure the issue is on the ballot in as many states as possible this fall.

This effort should galvanize Republicans and the Trump campaign. They need to adopt a position and message to voters on abortion that will help defuse the issue. Haley could help.
