QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Many Democrats, including some current senior administration officials, are concerned she (VP Harris) could not defeat whomever the Republican Party puts up — even if it were Donald Trump. One Democratic operative tells Axios’ Alayna Treene that most Democrats aren’t saying, ‘Oh, no, our heir apparent is f***ing up, what are we gonna do?’ It’s more that people think, ‘Oh, she’s f***ing up, maybe she shouldn’t be the heir apparent.’ Some Democrats close to the White House are increasingly concerned about Harris’s handling of high-profile issues and political tone deafness, and question her ability to maintain the coalition that Biden rode to the White House, sources tell Axios’ Hans Nichols.”
Axios

“The same party that didn’t bother asking Americans how they felt about transgender sports or voter ID laws didn’t run radical race theory by them either. It’s just another example of how wildly out-of-touch the Democrats are with real people. The same real people, incidentally, who are launching recall efforts in a record-high 50 school boards this year. The Left can call this a manufactured controversy all they want. But we’ll see how phony it feels next election day.”
Tony Perkins

 “For decades, going back at least as far as the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that concocted a constitutional right to abortion, conservatives have placed a great emphasis on winning back culture war ground through judicial nominations. … The reality is that, as South Texas College of Law professor Josh Blackman recently wrote: ‘We don’t have a 6-3 conservative Court. We have a 3-3-3 Court,’ including three centrists of varying degrees of malleability. Unless fundamental changes are made that cut to the core of the modern conservative legal movement, conservatives will remain disappointed. The Court is not, and will not be, our savior.”
Josh Hammer

“Biden’s central message is that crime is up because of guns. That’s odd. When a police officer discharges his gun and kills a criminal, it’s always the fault of a ‘racist cop.’ But when a thug kills a police officer or another person, it’s the gun’s fault.”
Gary Bauer

 “We are a nation of immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws. We must address security at our southern border and comprehensively enforce the laws that are already in place.”
Senator Tim Scott

“When [Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark] Milley publicly apologized for standing outside of St. John’s Church with the former president, he said he shouldn’t have appeared in uniform with [Donald] Trump because it was ‘too political.’ … Critical race theory is just about the most political issue there is. If Milley truly cared about being ‘neutral,’ then he would stand up and fight this woke administration trying to radically remake our military.”
Tony Perkins

“I just want to reiterate: not just black lives matter, all lives matter.”
Philonise Floyd, George Floyd’s brother

“What is difficult to understand … is how on one hand, you can protest America for injustice, while at the same time representing America on the world stage. Activists like Gwen Berry have no problem representing the nation when it’s convenient for their career path. It seems lost on them that the nation which gave them room to flourish is the very thing that they’re spurning. To represent the United States of America is an honor, not a platform. Abusing such an honor for a display of contempt shows unfitness for that honor, no matter how physically fit an athlete might be otherwise.”
Tony Perkins

“The utter ingratitude with which so many Americans treat the gift they have been given in living in the United States is truly appalling.”
Ben Shapiro

“Staying safe has become a religion. ‘Safetyism,’ as it is sometimes called, like all religions, places what it values — in this case, being safe — above other values. Safetyism explains the willingness of Americans to give up their most cherished values — including liberty — in the name of safety for the last year and a half. … You can live a safe life. Or you can live a full life. You can’t live both.”
Dennis Prager

“One hundred years of the [Chinese Communist Party] is a century of killing fields and genocide. No political party has killed more people than the CCP.”
Mike Pompeo

 “There will never be unity. One side of the divide thinks that children should go to drag shows, women have penises, infanticide is good, and all white people are racist. There’s no common ground between us. I despise their worldview and have no respect for those who ascribe to it.”
Matt Walsh with quite possibly the best quote of the year so far

“The Republican Party is the party of law and order, defending the police, and we will always proudly stand with our men and women in blue. The American people know very clearly that the Democrats have led the dangerous and destructive agenda to defund the police causing today’s crime crisis in America.”
Congresswoman Elise Stefanik

 “It’s [right-wingers] mission to turn and twist everything I say until I am completely silenced.”
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar

“A recent Pew Research Survey on Twitter use concluded just 10% of users produced an astonishing 92% of all tweets, and nearly 69% of those highly prolific users are Democrats. That alone should put to rest the idea that anything that happens on Twitter represents the real world.”
Salena Zito
