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:

Byron York, chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner: The 'Biden Bump' that didn't last long.

Again, it's all polls. But note this, from the RealClearPolitics analyst Sean Trende: 'Polls are just snapshots in time. The problem is that the political science literature is pretty consistent that this is the time when the electorate's views about the election start to harden, particularly with respect to the economy.' So public opinion can be volatile, but after a while, it is not. And remember that where the economy is concerned, voters believe Biden has done a terrible job. Put it all together, and while yes, there is a lot of time left, there are also lots of reasons for Biden to be worried.

Matt Vespa, Senior Editor at Townhall. com: Israel's latest move in Gaza is going to infuriate the pro-hamas college kids rebelling nationwide.

Moreover, there’s talk that Biden wants to resettle some Palestinians, most of whom support Hamas and the October 7 attacks, on American soil. This White House already accused the IDF of human rights violations, but prior to the October 7 attacks, it fell short of announcing a total cessation of aid per the Leahy Laws. It’s all about ensuring there’s no massive Muslim voter rebellion in Michigan with the Biden folk.

Gregg Jarrett, Fox News legal analyst and commentator who formerly worked as a defense attorney and adjunct law professor: NY vs. Trump: A trial in search of an imaginary crime.

It doesn’t matter to Bragg that Trump perpetrated none of the crimes alleged during opening statements or that any guilty verdict will inevitably be overturned on appeal. He doesn’t care about the damage his meritless case is doing to the legal system. The DA’s objective is to sully the presumptive GOP nominee for president to unduly influence the upcoming election. It’s a politically motivated prosecution and a disgraceful abuse of the rule of law.

Liz Peek, Fox News contributor: Biden White House signals pessimism about election in surprising way.

In addition, the president’s EPA has recently issued new power plant emissions rules that could force the closure of many coal-fired power plants, even as demand for electricity expands. It also requires by 2032 wide-spread use of carbon-capture technology that does not yet exist on a large scale. Similar rules adopted by the Obama administration were overturned by the Supreme Court in 2016; critics claimed executive overreach. The Biden team’s approach, which could undermine the nation’s energy security, is likely to meet the same fate.

These are not sensible policies; they are the wish-list and fantasies of a progressive White House not likely to pay the price for their damaging meddling. Here’s hoping.
