QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“This is a feeling, like this is an addictive feeling. I love playing in the playoffs. I love playing in the Finals. This is the moments I want to chase. I want the team to build off this and hopefully we can do it again.”
Giannis Antetokounmpo after the Milwaukee Bucks won the NBA championship

“Obviously I wanted to get the job done. That’s my stubborn side. It’s easy to go somewhere and go win a championship with somebody else. It’s easy. I could go to a superteam, and just do my part to win a championship. But this is the hard way to do it, and we did it.”
Giannis

“Can anybody point me to that one time in history where the side that was demanding censorship, segregation, propaganda, radical education, papers to move freely in society, plus government forces going door to door to demand compliance were the good guys?”
Candace Owens

“Earlier this month, Chicago Public Schools announced that it would be making free condoms available in schools, beginning with children in the fifth grade. … It’s time for some brutal honesty. This isn’t about the ‘health’ or ‘safety’ of the children. If it were, the adults would be up in arms at the mere prospect of elementary school children or middle schoolers having sex and would be doing everything in their power to prevent it. But sex is the only destructive behavior that the grown-ups just can’t bring themselves to discourage outright.”
Laura Hollis

“I don’t any take great pleasure … in clashing with the senator. I have a great deal of respect for the institution of the Senate of the United States. But [Rand Paul] was completely out of line. He totally distorted reality. And he made some inflammatory and, I believe, slanderous remarks about lying under oath, which is completely nonsense. I mean, and some of the things he says are so distorted and out of tune with reality, I had to call him on that. I didn’t enjoy it, but I had to do that because he was completely out of line. Totally inappropriate.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci

“I do think that [Dr. Anthony Fauci has] been giving us shades of the truth from the very beginning, but I also think that he is predictable as an elitist. People on the Left believe they know better than you and they think that the common man’s too stupid to make their own decisions, so these decisions need to be made by their betters. And I truly think that he believes that he knows better. … He calculates what the people need to hear and he tells them that regardless of whether it’s true.”
Senator Rand Paul

“Spending $3.5 trillion and expecting it to combat inflation is like throwing gasoline on a fire and hoping it goes out.”
Congressman Ralph Norman

“If Democrats in Washington cared about illegal immigration, they would be trying to finish Trump’s wall — a great infrastructure project. Instead, they’re trying to shove a massive amnesty plan into their infrastructure bill.”
Gary Bauer

“There’s nobody suggesting there’s unchecked inflation is on the way. No serious economist.”
Joe Biden

“Verdict: False. Larry Summers is worried about inflation. He has been the Treasury Secretary under Bill Clinton, director of the National Economic Council under Barack Obama, chief economist of the World Bank, and president of Harvard University. He is one of the most prominent economists in the United States today.”
John Carney

“Remember when the Democrat sales pitch for Biden a year ago was that he would unite America, calm things down, and help the middle class afford stuff like gas, housing and groceries? Hilarious.”
Buck Sexton

“There’s Mrs. Biden, Dr Jill to you. Anybody who thinks she will give up being the First Lady without a fight has badly misjudged her. Furthermore, the notion that she would merely stand by and let Joe hand over the reins to Kamala is ludicrous. Joe Biden might be able to brush off the fact that the Vice-President called him a racist and a rapist. After all, that’s just politics. But I’m certain that Mrs. Biden thinks about it every time she’s within 100 yards of the cackle.

“If Joe Biden passed away in his sleep, I have no doubt that Dr. Jill would have him stuffed and then prop him up as the need arose. Nobody, I suspect, would ever notice.”
Columnist Burt Prelutsky
