QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“So, what about the Americans who really, today, only want me to ask you about Hunter Biden’s laptop, how are you going to get them to see that you are fighting for them, when they’re so dead set against you?”
KCRG Anchor and Managing Editor Beth Malicki questioning Joe Biden

“By the way, there’s nothing to any of that, nothing to any of that. It’s all a smear. Every major outfit, every serious investigator has pointed out that this is a smear. This is classic Trump. We have four days left, and all of a sudden, there’s a laptop. And you may recall, there’s also talk about, four months before, there was a similar thing that somebody had, allegedly. There’s overwhelming evidence that — from the intelligence community that the Russians are engaged. I mean, look, this is — my son’s an honorable man. And all the investigations that were done around the issue of what was going on in Ukraine, if you noticed, every one of the major people who worked for Trump, during the impeachment, went under oath, and under oath said, [Joe] Biden did his job. No law was broken. … Hunter Biden broke no laws.”
Biden’s response

“They (the Bidens) stole from the business. They defrauded Bobulinski and the other partners. They’re doing business with Chinese communist spies, and taking money from Chinese communist spies. I would think even the most ill-informed would figure out taking money from a Chinese communist spy, gee, that could be espionage. None of the morons in the press pick that up.”
Rudy Giuliani accused the Biden family of defrauding their former business partner, Tony Bobulinski and doing business with Chinese intelligence assets

“The Biden family is looking more and more like a crime family.”
President Trump 

“My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military. In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump.”
Former Packer great Brett Favre

“Peace and prosperity normally get a president reelected. But for the last four years, our media, Hollywood, academia and Democrats have acted anything but normal. Sadly, that has become normal.”
Larry Elder is a bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio talk show host

“So, why is Donald going to win? Because he won in 2016 with pretty similar ratios. These last three weeks in particular, the spread was about the same as in 2016. Now Donald has poured it on. His voice has never cracked, and he has been a human dynamo. Joe Biden stayed close to his basement and prayed that no more stories would come out about Hunter’s sweetheart financial deals with the Chinese and evidence from Hunter’s laptop about setting aside a percentage of his deals for ‘the Big Guy.’

“In the Republican primaries more people voted for just one candidate, Donald Trump, than turned out for all the Democratic candidates. The enthusiasm for Donald is not just a matter of turnout at airports where he flies in and flies out. It can be tabulated in the electoral turnout. Throughout this race, the enthusiasm for Donald has been colossal. For Joe, it has been comparatively feeble. And there is more.

“Last week, I reported that 56 percent of people polled by Gallup in late September affirmed they were better off now, amid a painful pandemic, than they were four years ago, before Donald entered the White House. Another 79 percent of Americans said the economy was one of the most important issues for them in the race. And still another 56 percent of Americans said they expected a Trump victory. Forgive me for jumping to conclusions, but I, too, am expecting a Trump victory.”
R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. is founder and editor in chief of The American Spectator

“Trump has tightened virtually every one of these swing states to the point where—what are they saying this morning? … ‘Biden’s five points ahead in Wisconsin… maybe three [to five] points ahead in Florida, two points ahead in Arizona.’ Listen, don’t believe these polls, first of all. And second of all, the Trump vote is always being undercounted. Pollsters, when they actually call a real Trump voter, the Trump voter is very suspicious of the Deep State calling them and asking them who they’re voting for.

“So it is not an accurate count. I think the safe thing to do—this is not scientific, I’m just saying from my experience of being a Michigander—whatever they’re saying the Biden lead is, cut it in half, right now, in your head. Cut it in half, and now you’re within the four-point margin of error. That’s how close this is. That’s how desperately close this is!” 
Filmmaker and staunch Democrat Michael Moore

“Even as the Obama-Biden campaign tried to exploit the poor public perception of vice presidential candidate Palin in 2008, Biden reportedly said, ‘no one decides who they’re going to vote for based on the vice president.’ Maybe this year, they should.”
Joel Zinberg, M.D., J.D., is an Associate Clinical Professor of Surgery at the Icahn Mount Sinai School of Medicine and was General Counsel and a Senior Economist at the Council of Economic Advisers from 2017 to 2019

“We are not about to abandon the ideas we believe in because some of you have made a virtue out of hating and vilifying this president and demonizing the rest of us who disagree with you.

“We are not about to surrender to a leftist agenda of abortion on demand; lawlessness in our streets; bankrupting and unworkable environmental radicalism; the end of the oil industry; socialism; gender anarchy; the obliteration of our freedoms of speech and religion; and a weak United States because you have become unwitting allies of sinister forces determined to realize these infernal goals.”
David Limbaugh is a writer, author and attorney

“The biggest issue is, who is for the people of the state of Michigan? Who is for our constitutional rights and our moral values? Right now, I’d ask America: who do you trust with your first amendment rights? Who do you trust with your second amendment rights? Who do you trust with your freedom? I’ve always been taught that when your opponents tell you they’re going to do something, you better believe them. When they [Democrats] tell you they’re going to shut down oil and energy independence, you better believe them. When they tell you they’re going to bring forward the Green New Deal, that would decimate the automotive industry, you better believe them. When they tell you they’re going to abolish the Electoral College, that would shut out midwestern states from having a voice in the presidential election, you better believe them.”
Michigan GOP Senate candidate and Army combat veteran John James 

“Democratic intimidation tactics haven’t changed much since Reconstruction and the Jim (Dem) Crow South era. They just switched whips, chains, Ku Klux Klan (KKK) lynch mobs, German Shepherds and water hoses, for welfare checks, textbooks, societal pressure and violence from domestic terrorist organizations like Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM).”
African-American columnist Carl Jackson
