QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“I saved at least 8 Republican Senators, including Mitch, from losing in the last Rigged (for President) Election. Now they (almost all) sit back and watch me fight against a crooked and vicious foe, the Radical Left Democrats. I will NEVER FORGET!”
President Trump

“How did we go from starting a revolution over a tax on tea to collectively shrugging our shoulders when the government locks us in our homes, keeps us from seeing our families and arbitrarily closes our small businesses?”
Congresswoman-elect Lauren Boebert

“You know, nobody ever intended that governors would be sort of czars or dictators in charge of the economy. In my State, you can’t have indoor dining, you can’t have outdoor dining and your kids are not in school. We’re worse than New York City right now in Kentucky, our governor has shut the schools down, even though all of the science shows that and all of the evidence that you really aren’t having a surge when you have the schools open.”
Senator Rand Paul

“I said back in July what the country needed was a package roughly of a trillion dollars focused on kids in school, small businesses, health care providers, and direct cash payments … We started advocating that in July and August. The talks were unproductive, so I essentially put that bill on the floor of the Senate in both September and October. Not a single Democrat supported it. Their view was, give us everything we want or we won’t give you anything. It’s noteworthy that at the end they finally gave us what we could have agreed to back in July. I think what held it up was they did not want to do anything before the presidential election. I think they felt that would disadvantage the president.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., praised the coronavirus stimulus bill that passed after months of stalled negotiations, but added that Democrats could have had the same deal months ago had they not prioritized damaging President Trump’s reelection hopes

“Remember that time brilliant negotiator Nancy Pelosi turned down a $1.8 trillion deal from Steve Mnuchin?” Ben Shapiro regarding the $900 billion COVID relief bill

“Folks, we just received a 5,600 page PDF that represents one of the largest spending bills in our history, and NOT ONE Member of Congress will have had time to read through it before voting later today. This is awful governance, and a disservice to the American people.”
Rep. Ralph Norman

 “If money really did grow on trees, why not give more free money? Why not give it out all the time? Why stop at $600 a person? Why not $1,000? Why not $2,000? Maybe these new Free-Money Republicans should join the Everybody-Gets-A-Guaranteed-Income Caucus. Why not $20,000 a year for everybody? Why not $30,000? If we can print out money with impunity, why not do it? To so-called conservatives who are quick to identify the socialism of Democrats: If you vote for this spending monstrosity, you are no better.”
Senator Rand Paul

“Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election. Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!”
Tweet by President Trump

“Heartless, arrogant, unelected CDC bureaucrats have decided that the lives of elderly Americans just don’t count. For months the CDC has been telling us that the elderly are the most vulnerable. But now, they are recommending a 100 million so-called ‘essential workers,’ which means healthy people working at everything from liquor stores to telephone companies, that they can get the vaccine before our grandparents can. That members of Congress like me can get the vaccine before at risk seniors can. People like my aunt, who is imprisoned in her own home because of the danger that if she catches the disease, she could die. This is immoral and bad health policy.”
Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard ripped Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officials for prioritizing the Wuhan coronavirus vaccine for 100 million “essential workers” ahead of elderly populations

“Biden isn’t even bothering to try to convince you that he’s choosing the most competent people for key [cabinet] jobs. Instead, he’s telling you what they look like. Their appearance is all that matters. So it turns out your mother was wrong; you can judge a book by its cover. In fact, you’re now required to.”
Tucker Carlson

“[Democrats are] trying to essentially use the COVID lockdown model for the climate emergency model. And they are going to go from COVID lockdowns to climate lockdowns.”
Marc Morano

 “I don’t really let statues bother me, because, well… they’re statues. They don’t make me angry, because they’re just inanimate objects. The only way a statue can hurt you is if it falls on you while you’re tearing it down. I avoid this danger by not tearing them down.”
Jim Treacher

“I wasn’t expected to be alive today. I wasn’t expected to make it to October, and then to November, and then to December. And yet, here I am, and today, got some problems, but I’m feeling pretty good today.

“My point in everything today that I’m sharing with you about this is to say thanks and to tell everybody involved how much I love you from the bottom of a sizable and growing and still beating heart, and there’s room for much more. All because I have learned what love really is during this. You know, I have a philosophy there’s good that happens in everything. It may not reveal itself immediately, and even in the most dire circumstances, if you just wait, if you just remain open to things, the good in it will reveal itself. And that has happened to me as well in countless, countless ways.”
Rush Limbaugh during his last radio program of 2020

“Serving more than 40 years on the Wisconsin Supreme Court and writing more than 1,300 opinions, few others have given so much of themselves to the cause of public service in Wisconsin. Chief Justice Abrahamson was a meticulous jurist and a profound writer who believed in an independent judiciary. But she was also a champion for a more fair, more equitable state and country, and to that end, worked to hold our laws to account.”
Gov. Tony Evers in a statement on the passing of former Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson. She was 87.
