QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“This in fact is our new American moment. There has never been a better time to start living the American Dream. If you work hard, if you believe in yourself, if you believe in America, then you can dream anything, you can be anything, and together, we can achieve anything.”
President Trump during his State of the Union address

 “Tonight I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people. This is really the key. These are the people we were elected to serve.”
President Trump during his State of the Union address

 “My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans, to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream. Because Americans are dreamers, too.”
President Trump during his State of the Union address

 “And just as I promised the American people from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history. Our massive tax cuts provide tremendous relief for the middle class and small business.”
President Trump during his State of the Union address

“Let’s begin tonight by recognizing that the State of our Union is strong because our people are strong. And together we are building a safe, strong and proud America. Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs, including … 200,000 new jobs in manufacturing alone.”
President Trump during his State of the Union address

Consider “checking identification of all attending the State of the Union address and arresting any illegal aliens in attendance. Of all the places where the Rule of Law needs to be enforced, it should be in the hallowed halls of Congress. Any illegal aliens attempting to go through security, under any pretext of invitation or otherwise, should be arrested and deported.”
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) in tweets to the U.S. Capitol Police and Attorney General Jeff Sessions Tuesday prior to the State of the Union address

“The left wants more and more immigrants — including immigrants who enter or are in the country illegally — to come to America and become American citizens. The question is, why?

“The most obvious reason is political. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, chain migration, sanctuary cities and citizenship for immigrants living in the country illegally will give the left political power. An estimated 70 to 80 percent of Latin American immigrants will vote Democrat. So, with enough new voters from Latin America alone, the Democrats would essentially be assured the presidency and Congress for decades.
Talk show host Dennis Prager

“There’s no constitutional right to not be offended. There is a constitutional right to speech.”
Brantley Starr, Texas’ deputy first assistant attorney general, testifying during a state Senate committee hearing on campus free speech policies

“I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it. Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.”
U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley on a reading by Hillary Clinton during the Grammys broadcast

“It was unbelievable, man. Frank was always trying to hook me up with Marilyn Monroe, but Marilyn Monroe had a chest that looked like pears, man.”
84-year-old record producer Quincy Jones revealed his friend Frank Sinatra wanted to set him up with Marilyn Monroe. But Jones refused.
