QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Highest gas prices since 2014. Worst conflict in Israel since 2014. Obama’s third term is going exactly as planned.”
Elijah Schaffer

“President Biden had it easy. All he had to do was nothing. He could expect a new era of good feelings emerging from a tumultuous time. He could expect a booming economy, a more peaceful Middle East, a solution to the pandemic. All he had to do was calm the waters. This, after all, was what Americans voted for: not a transformational figure or a figure of radical change but a stodgy, supposedly empathetic grandfather figure who could barely be bothered to leave his basement for the entirety of the presidential campaign. Normalcy could be restored by installing a nearly inanimate object as president. Instead, Biden has served as a facade for the most radical administration in modern American history. And America is already paying the price.”
Ben Shapiro

“Our country going to [crap] is what happens when you elect a guy who hasn’t accomplished anything in his life. Being in government your entire career is not a real job.”
Lisa Boothe

“If Biden’s job report was off by 74%, imagine how bad their other projections are?”
Caleb Hull

“We can’t deny it, there is a real change in the weather. And if we go 1.5 degrees warmer, we’re gonna be in real trouble — the point of no return.”
Joe Biden

“[Taking questions] is not something we recommend. In fact, a lot of times we say [to Biden], ‘Don’t take questions.’ But he’s going to do what he wants to do because he’s the president of the United States.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki

“You’ve got to think that at least part of Fauci’s authoritarian germ hysterical is a cover for something else. Could it be that Tony Fauci is trying to divert attention from himself and his own role in the COVID-19 pandemic? … At the time the outbreak began last fall, the Wuhan lab was conducting experiments on how to make bat viruses infectious to human beings. Those experiments were funded by American tax dollars, the funding for those experiments was approved and directed by Tony Fauci in Washington. … In a functional country, there would be a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in the COVID pandemic that has killed millions and halted our country, changing it forever.”
Tucker Carlson

“Those folks on the far-left who insist that America is a bad place are trying to tear down our system. That’s why they talk about systemic racism. And they’ll do anything. Like packing the Supreme Court, intimidating juries, ending the filibuster, defunding the police, etc. etc. Because what they really want to do is transform this country from the greatest and most prosperous democracy in the history of history into some kind of socialist command and control autocratic country that would presumably support their left-wind ideological whims.”
Larry Kudlow

“I just want to live in a country where Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, LeBron James, and Meghan Markle are no longer oppressed.”
Matt Walsh

“You can’t assume gender but all cops are racist murderers.”
Kevin Sorbo

“I don’t think our young people are avoiding marriage and children because of concerns about financial security. I think they are avoiding marriage and children because they don’t want marriage and children. … The collapse of marriage, family and the national birthrate is the result of the secularization of our culture. Faith and values have been displaced by materialism and egotism. How do we turn it around? As a starter, let’s have more parental choice in education so parents can get their children out of public schools and into religious schools, where they can learn values that sustain life.”
Star Parker
