QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“As it pertained to Dr. [Christine Blasey] Ford, high-level Democrats said she should be believed, that they believed it happened. You said, if someone like Dr. Ford were to come out, the essence of what she is saying has to be believed, has to be real. Why? Why? Why is it real for Dr. Ford, but not for Tara Reade? Are women to be believed unless it pertains to you?”
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski confronted former Vice President Joe Biden over his past comments on the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, in light of Biden’s own denial of a sexual assault claim lodged against him by Tara Reade

“Look, women are to be believed, given the benefit of the doubt. If they come forward and say something that they said happened to them, they should start off with the presumption that they’re telling the truth. Then you have to look at the circumstances and the facts. And the facts in this case do not exist. They never happened.

“I’m not going to question her motive, I’m not going to get into that at all. I don’t know why these she’s saying this. I don’t know why after 27 years all of a sudden this gets raised. I don’t understand that. But I’m not going to go in and question her motive. I’m not going to attack her. She has a right to say whatever she wants to say. But I have a right to say, look at the facts, check it out. Find out if what any of what she says is true.”
Biden’s response

“And Reade is not alone. There are scores of women who have come forward to describe what could only be called sexual harassment, with Joey being handsy and smelling their hair. Now, we have a woman who says Biden complimented her breasts when she was 14 years old. This isn’t an old story either, like from the 1970s. This incident occurred at a fundraiser in 2008.”
Columnist Matt Vespa

“The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire. These are very good people, but they are angry. They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal.”
President Trump as an armed militia became involved in an angry protest in the Michigan statehouse 

What is the number of Americans who would have died from the Wuhan Flu under President Biden? That seems like a pretty basic question that no one ever asks these bozos (the media). You have to have a scale to measure these things by. Where is the cut-off between a good outcome and a bad one in terms of mortality? Is it 10,000? 20,000? What’s the number? All we know is that one death is acceptable. If it weren’t, the Dems would have cast off Floatin’ Ted Kennedy the minute he showed up with a neck brace and a martini.
Columnist Kurt Schlichter

“You’ve read many brilliant commentaries on the number of things that kill Americans every single year like choking, heart disease, cancer, auto accidents, medical accidents, and run-of-the-mill accidents. Of all of them, the Wuhan Coronavirus is the one medical villain our bureaucratic Avengers have decided warrants ruining economies and eroding Americans’ personal freedoms and way of life to ‘defeat’? Rather, from which they’ll ‘save’ you and me? Of course, that’s absurd. They can’t save you from getting sick. But they’re going to look like they’re trying.”
Talk show host Chris Stigall

“There is no normal. Whether it’s a retail or office environment, people will be returning in a heightened state of fear of getting infected, and they’re going to look for signs that property owners are taking the right measures to protect them.”
Paul Bedborough, chief executive for Cushman & Wakefield’s facilities management arm

“Does anyone believe that contemporary Americans could build another transcontinental railroad in six years? … America went to the moon in 1969 with supposedly primitive computers and backward engineering. Does anyone believe we could launch a similar moonshot today?”We have been fighting in Afghanistan without result for 18 years. Our forefathers helped to win World War II and defeat the Axis Powers in four years. The choice is ours whether America awakens as a roaring giant or a crying baby.”
Dr. Victor Davis Hanson is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, a military historian and a professor emeritus of classics at California State University, Fresno
