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:

Matt Vespa, Senior Editor at Townhall. com: Biden's anti-gun speech was a trainwreck.

The father of a gun felon delivering a speech on gun control — you can’t make that up. It was riddled with inaccuracies and overall strangeness. Biden spoke about how he convinced a Delaware fisherman to relinquish his “assault weapon.” Then, there was this jabberwocky about magazines that could carry “200 shells,” botched a Thomas Jefferson quote, spoke about teaching jobs he never had, and then trotted the lie that no one could own a cannon. The president also said that guns kill more children than car accidents or cancer and that the gun industry is the only sector protected by a legal shield — all of which are lies.

Byron York, chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner: Push to promote transgender ideology is backfiring.

The contrast is extraordinary. And so is the change. For a time, the number of Americans who said that a person's sex can be changed, that it can be different from birth, approached a majority. Now, it is receding. If that trend continues, the ideology which the Biden administration has so energetically promoted might no longer be the political benefit the president thinks it is.

Gregg Jarrett, Fox News legal analyst and commentator, and formerly worked as a defense attorney and adjunct law professor: Hunter Biden guilty on all counts. What we just learned about smoke, mirrors and privilege.

In a poignant moment, prosecutor Leo Wise offered a rejoinder to this obvious effort to unduly influence the jury. He gestured in the family’s direction and calmly explained, 'The people sitting in the gallery are not evidence. You may recognize them from the news… but respectfully, none of that matters.' Indeed, it did not.

Wise then repeated the well-oiled legal idiom that President Biden invoked a week earlier when a jury in New York handed down a very different verdict in the trial of former President Donald Trump. 'No one is above the law.'

As it turns out, even a privileged and coddled Biden must abide by the rule of law.

Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives: Americans don’t care about Trump charges, they care about surviving what Biden has done to them.

Economically, Biden’s destructive policies make life more expensive. Culturally, people are sick of radical dictates which denigrate religious liberty and seek to indoctrinate children against the will of their parents. Finally, as a matter of safety, Americans realize that Biden does not have the knowledge, ability, or wits to defend our nation against our adversaries.

The 2024 election isn’t about what the establishment media thinks. It’s about America’s survival.
