QUOTES OF THE YEAR


January

“I hope Mike Pence comes through for us, I have to tell you. I hope that our great vice president, our great vice president comes through for us. He’s a great guy, because if he doesn’t come through, I won’t like him quite as much.”
President Trump at a rally in Georgia prior to a joint session of Congress to certify the tally of the Electoral College, which met last month and voted 306-232 in favor of Joe Biden

“It is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not.”
VP Mike Pence prior to certifying the Electoral College votes for Joe Biden

“Vice President Pence was a profile in courage [Wednesday]. He understood that his oath was to the Constitution not to a party, policy, or person. He did what he believed was right and he did so under enormous pressure.”
Newt Gingrich

“I know your pain. I know your hurt. But you have to go home now.”
President Trump to protesters in a video message

“A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th. Now tempers must be cooled, and calm restored. We must get on with the business of America. My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power.”
President Trump conceding

“Pandemics are primarily urban diseases. If you want to minimize your health risks, get out of the big cities like Chicago or New York.”
Economist Stephen Moore

“If people blindly allow politicians to violate our rights in the name of ‘public health emergency’ on COVID, they’ll brand EVERYTHING a public health emergency…climate change, gun control, defund the police. So they can force it on us.”
Conservative political commentator Liz Wheeler

“Kamala Harris is a pathological liar and mediocre political talent who slept her way to power, flunked out of the primaries after garnering close to zero support, and was given the VP nod thanks solely to her race and gender. Other than that, she’s an inspiration.”
Matt Walsh, writer, speaker, author. Harris was accused this week of plagiarism, involving a story she has told frequently, and it’s very similar to one told by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in a 1965 Playboy magazine article.

“It’s the height of hypocrisy for people who claim to be the champions of rights for women to deny the very biological existence of women. … It’s mind-blowing because it shows just how out of touch with reality and the struggles of everyday Americans people in Congress are.”
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard regarding Nancy Pelosi’s bizarre House rules

“Hey democrats, I have a few more for ya: Mentos and womentos. Antarctica and unclearctica. Cement and cewoment. German and gerwoman. woMEN and woWOMEN.”
American actor Kevin Sorbo


“On the impeachment, it’s really a continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics. It’s ridiculous. It’s absolutely ridiculous. This impeachment is causing tremendous anger, and you’re doing it and it’s really a terrible thing that they’re doing. For Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to continue on this path, I think it’s causing tremendous danger to our country and it’s causing tremendous anger.”

“They’ve analyzed my speech and my words and my final paragraph, my final sentence, and everybody to a T thought it was totally appropriate. We want absolutely no violence. I want no violence.”
President Trump

“The ayatollah can tweet. The president can’t. Democrats can object on January 6, 2017, but Republicans aren’t allowed to object on January 6, 2021. Democrats say antifa is a myth. Republicans condemn all violence, all the time. The double standard has to stop.”
Rep. Jim Jordan

“If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. You voted for the person who incited a crowd to go into the Capitol and potentially take the lives of lawmakers.”
CNN’s Don Lemon

“Telling 75 million Americans they’re on the same side as the Klan may get the left nodding, but further alienates 75 million Americans at a pretty critical time in American history.  The media is sowing more division.”
Erick Erickson

“Unfortunately, too many American educational institutions — from elementary schools to universities — have become indoctrination centers. The riots that swept across the country last year are fruits of that indoctrination and the utter disregard for other people’s rights that accompanied those riots. At the heart of that indoctrination is a sense of grievance and victimhood when others have better outcomes — which are automatically called ‘privileges’ and never called ‘achievements,’ regardless of what the actual facts are.”
Thomas Sowell

“For those of us not in positions of power, the vast majority of Americans, we have to decide if we have a country worth saving. If we do, then we all have to change our behavior. There are practical things each of us can do. I’ve already started, and it’s working for me. Maybe this plan can work for others.

“No. 1: Turn off the TV.

“No. 2: Read news from a variety of sources.

“No. 3: Speak with more people outside your political bubble.”
Neil Patel co-founded The Daily Caller (www.dailycaller.com), one of America’s fastest growing online news outlets

 “All I hear all the time is because of COVID, we have to not travel and not get into big crowds. So, why are we having this Inauguration? Why not just junk the whole thing? Why are we going outside? I mean, all I hear all the time is because of COVID, we have to not travel and not get into big crowds. So, why are we having this Inauguration? Why can’t he just go in a room — all you need is a room, the wife, a judge, a balloon, a copy of the old book of Jewish fairy tales to put your hand on, and you’re done.”
HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher

“It’s highly offensive and frankly bigoted that they’re calling it impeachment instead of impeachwoment.”
Matt Walsh

“The prospect of a human tide coming to America now becomes very real. And the promise of U.S. citizenship for the 11 million undocumented already here can only serve as an additional enhancement for even more to come. … The left claims Donald Trump is responsible for the January 6 rioting at the U.S. Capitol because he ‘incited’ the crowd to insurrection with his rhetoric about a ‘stolen’ election. Why, then, can’t Biden’s language about easing the path to America and gaining citizenship equally be a cause and effect? Throughout history, uncontrolled immigration without assimilation has contributed to the collapse of other superpowers. The United States does not enjoy special protection from a similar fate.”
Cal Thomas

“You need a valid ID, credentials, and approved passage through a predetermined checkpoint before you enter the nation’s Capitol right now. Why shouldn’t that be the same standard we apply at our nation’s borders?”
Charlie Kirk

“There will be a trial and when that trial ends, Senators will have to decide whether they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection.”
Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in a Freudian slip

“There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.”
Joe Biden. Remember, he said this on October 15, 2020: “We’re eight months into this pandemic, and Donald Trump still doesn’t have a plan to get this virus under control. I do.”

“There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And, often, there are unintended consequences — people keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face.”
Anthony Fauci (March 8, 2020)

“If you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on, it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective.”
Anthony Fauci (January 25, 2021)

“As soon as [Biden] entered the Oval Office, he promptly signed more than a dozen executive orders and every one was a finger in the eye of conservatives. … Where is the comfort in telling people that he is going to be the president of those who didn’t vote for him when he has devoted his presidency to relentlessly attacking their values?”
Gary Bauer

“[Joe Biden] issued an executive order last week, which, if it stands, will potentially destroy women’s sports over the next decade, denying your daughters and granddaughters of the opportunities that Title IX has provided for the past 49 years. So, the president who is in office largely because he won the women’s vote has just created a regime where your 17-year-old daughter may have to compete against a 17-year-old boy in track and other sports. When she loses the competition, she may have to take a shower with him when it’s all over.”
Gary Bauer

“This ‘systemically racist’ nation has elected a black president and a black vice president. We have had a black attorney general and black Supreme Court justices. Many of our major cities, including our nation’s capital, are led by black mayors, police chiefs, and city councils. Yet to the left, this progress is never seen as evidence that America is a good and decent country. It is continually doubling down on the idea that America is racist to its core.”
Gary Bauer

“What happened on Jan. 6 was not an ‘insurrection.’ There was no serious attempt to ‘overthrow’ the United States government. Was there a riot? Yes. Was it deliberately disruptive of government business? Definitely. But an attempted coup? Ridiculous on its face. … The target of the ‘insurrection’ propaganda campaign is not so much Donald Trump as it is the 74 million-plus people who voted for him. Americans were stunned when Hillary Clinton referred to only half of Donald Trump’s supporters as a ‘basket of deplorables’ in 2016. But Trump had millions more supporters in 2020, and now all of them are being demonized by Democrats and their mouthpieces in the media as threats, as ‘seditionists’ and ‘white supremacists’ who need to be ‘deprogrammed,’ ‘reprogrammed,’ imprisoned in ‘reeducation camps’ or subjected to ‘Nuremburg trials.’ … This is beyond political difference. It is a sickness.”
Laura Hollis

 “[Ted Cruz] almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out. Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed. In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign.”
AOC

 “I don’t see how we can reduce racial tension in this country when the left is constantly pointing fingers and agitating. Everything is race, race, race. This exploitation might not be as toxic if Democrats, including Biden, hadn’t been trying to cast all conservatives as bigots, but sadly, they have. It also might not be as toxic if Democrats weren’t using race to villainize conservatives and as a Trojan horse to usher in their socialist agenda.”
David Limbaugh

“Is it too late to impeach George Washington for owning slaves? I don’t see how we can let that slide.”
Scott Adams

February

“The same people who tell me that fences don’t work on the border want to have this fence and turn the Capitol into a military compound. So we don’t know of any existing, emergent threat to the Capitol, but we do know of an existing, emergent threat to our nation through the border, people crossing the border illegally that are coming across.

“There’s two things here: They built a fence because they know fences actually do work, so we ought to continue our fence on the border. And the second thing is, they came in with overwhelming military personnel. So they had an overwhelming amount of personnel to respond as a secondary response, if anybody tried to breach the fence, we don’t have that on the border.

“If you don’t control your border, you really don’t have national security. It’s very easy for anybody to get across our border today.”
Arizona GOP Rep. Andy Biggs on the new fence that now surrounds the U.S. Capitol. The 7-foot fence was added after the Capitol riot on Jan. 6 and has not come down yet.

“The real story is that AOC was in her office and then a cop came and told her to evacuate. The end. That was her entire involvement in that day’s events. She managed to turn that into a harrowing tale of narrowly avoiding death at the hands of assassins sent by Ted Cruz.”
Matt Walsh

“If you are working on the #KeystonePipeline you can just find another job? Okay. If you are a teacher afraid to teach in person because of #COVID you too can just find another job.”
Kimberly Klacik

“Can you imagine how loudly [Rachel] Maddow, Chuck Todd and the hypocritical civil libertarians at the New York Times editorial page would have howled if Trump had brought 15,000 armed troops into D.C. for any reason — including a parade? He sent a few busloads of soldiers to protect a federal courthouse in Seattle from being torched by rioters last year and he was called Hitler Junior.”
Michael Reagan

“It’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle.”
Wealthy leftist elitist John Kerry on why he deserves to use private jets versus somebody like you

“Sending kids back to school this year is so fraught with anxiety and uncertainty. Why not just have everyone repeat the year? Is that such a far out idea?”
Joy Behar. And yes, it is.

“I have the utmost respect for what [police] do, for what our soldiers do, [people] that sacrifice their lives. I just don’t care for people who put those kind of people down. If it weren’t for them, we would not have the freedom to complain about what they do.”
Actor Denzel Washington

“In Wisconsin, we have over a $1 billion tax surplus. And I think the discussion should be on how we should be cutting taxes not increasing them. If he’s already decided to spend above that billion and needs additional revenue to meet some of these priorities then I think we’re in for a really difficult budget negotiation.”
State Representative Adam Neylon (R-Pewaukee)

“I’m not sure why the governor continues to throw out these proposals when he knows it’s likely going to be dead upon arrival. It’s his right to do so, but when it comes to legalization (marijuana). I don’t foresee that happening this budget cycle.”
State Senator Patrick Testin (R-Stevens Point)

“The day after Donald Trump issued a travel ban on China, Joe Biden said that this is no time for his xenophobia and that sort of thing. And then, a month later, he actually tweeted out that banning travel from anywhere did not work. So, to now read that they’re considering actual restrictions on Americans inside the country, I think, is unconstitutional, I think is going to be challenged in court successfully. But I think it also gives you some insight into who we’re dealing with here: hypocrites.”
Marco Rubio

“You have great personal courage. I’ve been with some of you when we’ve been shot at.”
Joe Biden in a State Department address (Biden has NOT been shot at anywhere.)

“Customer service in this country is, by and large, so aggressively horrible that a company like Chick-fil-A can stand out simply by having employees that don’t visibly hate you.”
Matt Walsh

“Just ask Brian Williams if AOC was at the Capitol. He was there with her!”
Ryan Fournier

“People keep calling Serena Williams the greatest female athlete of all time, as if Caitlyn Jenner didn’t even exist.”
Michael Knowles


 “The idea that you say artificially nice things about people after they die is weird. I’ve never understood the logic of it. Rush Limbaugh was a terrible person while he was alive. He made a living by attacking the powerless. His death does not in anyway change or redeem that.”

The Young Turks” host Cenk Uygur

“Rush Limbaugh has passed on, but worry not — his memory lives on through bigots everywhere.”
March for Our Lives cofounder Cameron Kasky

“I was 4 days into a weeklong break from Twitter, but Limbaugh dying felt like a necessary moment to reemerge. My sincerest condolences go out to hell’s other residents who now have to deal with being associated with him.”
Media Matters editor Parker Malloy

“I wouldn’t say I was happy that Rush Limbaugh died. It’s more like euphoria.”
Yale Law School professor Scott Shapiro

“If I had to say something positive I guess I’m glad Rush Limbaugh lived long enough to get cancer and die.”
Comedian Paul Tompkins

“Rush Limbaugh was a foul f—k rat who spread nothing but hate & terror throughout his career. His radio show poisoned hundreds of millions of people’s minds. He’s a racist, a misogynist, & homophobe. His death brings me joy.”
Actor Anthony Atamanuik

“It’s one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn’t have when we came into office…”
Joe Biden lying

“All that’s been in the news is Trump. The next four years, I want to make sure all the news is the American people. I’m tired of talking about Donald Trump. I don’t want to talk about him anymore.”
Joe Biden

“I take issue with what everybody says about the division. … The nation is not divided.”
Joe Biden (Then why is he calling for unity?)

“I personally would like an apology, not just to me and my family and the other silversmiths but to the fans, all the football fans the other team players. It just upset me that this trophy was disgraced and disrespected by being thrown as if it was a real football. I have a big history of this trophy being made by my father and it’s such an honor and I know all the craftsmen that made it when my dad was there also at Tiffany’s and it takes a lot of hard work. I’ve seen this trophy being made at the factory at Tiffany’s and it’s a beautiful trophy. My father had to chisel the seams, he had to chisel the seams by hand. There is a newspaper article that shows him working on that trophy. The ball is hand-formed and the base is as well. I only watch the game to watch the trophy come out. I like to see all the owners and the football players just hold it up with such pride and hold it up and show everybody and I get goosebumps…. like right now I’m getting goosebumps.”
Lorraine Grohs, the daughter of Greg Grohs, the silversmith at Tiffany and Company from 1967 to 1994, who crafted the very first Vince Lombardi Trophy, was insulted by Tom Brady’s decision to toss the Lombardi Trophy. And now, she’s seeking an apology from the seven-time Super Bowl champion.

“Vaccine priority should be given to teachers working in their classrooms over teachers working in their living rooms. We should reward school districts that implemented extensive efforts that have allowed safe in-person instruction from day one over those that denied students the education they deserve.

“Now is the time to give those teachers additional peace of mind and show them that we appreciate these months of hard work and dedication to their students.”
Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow

I expected, when I ran for the Senate, was that there would be partisan fights and a lot of my public policy priorities would be thwarted. What I did not anticipate was that my life and my health would be unnecessarily threatened by my colleagues.”
State Senator  Kelda Roys, D-Madison. Republicans who control the state Legislature are pushing their colleagues to debate and vote on legislation in person but won’t require everyone to wear face masks. Republican leaders of the state Senate have refused to allow Democratic members to participate in Senate sessions virtually and did not require the body to wear masks while sitting and bellowing together in one space. Roys asked Republican Sen. Alberta Darling, who wore a mask on the floor, if she would talk to her colleagues about wearing masks during floor sessions. Darling declined. 

“I chose to wear a mask today because many of you feel very strongly about it and I want to respect your opinion, but I will not take on other members of my caucus who choose not to wear masks.  This isn’t about masks, it’s about the individual’s ability to do what they think is right for themselves and I don’t think they feel the same as many about the coronavirus in terms of how it spreads and so I respect that opinion, too.”
Sen. Darling

“This is the second time I’ve been accused of not caring about the people in this body. One of the things I’m tired of is mask shaming … before people in this body automatically assume the worst, maybe if they could reach out and ask for a conversation — maybe there’s a reason people in this body don’t wear a mask.”
Sen. Mary Felzkowski, R-Irma, after Sen. Tim Carpenter, D-Milwaukee, listed off the 12 lawmakers who weren’t wearing masks at the start of a floor session,  accusing them of seeking to make political statements at the expense of health. Felzkowski revealed she was infected with COVID-19 in the past and criticized Democratic lawmakers for hammering their Republican colleagues over the issue, noting some people don’t wear masks because of medical conditions.

“In four weeks, the Biden administration has been known for two things: open borders and closed schools.”
Senator Rick Scott

“Sadly, it is now easier for an illegal alien to walk into America than it is for a New Yorker to walk into a restaurant or for your child to walk into a school.”
Gary Bauer

“Let’s see a conversation between the people insisting ‘teachers just want to be safe!’ and the grocery store clerks who’ve shown up for work without fail for 12 months — including when we thought the pandemic was far deadlier. Ah, but they don’t have powerful Democrat unions.”
Buck Sexton

“Watching a woman put her mask on between bites of food and I can’t help but wonder how we survived so long as a species.”
Sydney Watson

March

“Now, in a fractured, well-meaning attempt at inclusion, women’s achievements have once again been put at great risk of loss. Biological females are losing opportunities at titles, records, scholarships, and even participation. Additionally, by ignoring the scientific, biological fact that males have higher bone density, greater muscle mass, and often greater height, women are being put in physical danger of greater injury in competition. While the NCAA sets the standard that a biological male may participate in female sports after a year of testosterone-suppressing drugs, there are no hormonal levels or guidelines set in order to compete.”
State Rep. Barb Dittrich, the lead Assembly author of bills to prevent transgender student athletes from participating in girls’ or women’s sports from elementary school through college in Wisconsin. The legislation, which would essentially seek to prohibit schools from allowing students join teams that don’t correspond to their biological sex as assigned by a doctor at birth unless the sport is classified as “coed,” would apply to public K-12 schools, independent charters, private choice institutions, the University of Wisconsin System and technical colleges.

“I think it’s obvious that I’m target number one here. People are out to destroy me.”
US Senator Ron Johnson (WI)

“I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it. I wasn’t elected by politicians, I was elected by the people of the state of New York. I’m not going to resign.”
Governor Andrew Cuomo


“Covid-19: The U.S. Is Edging Toward Normal, Alarming Some Officials.”
The New York Times

“It turns out the pandemic is a pretty big part of the news cycle and that’s not going away anytime soon. It turns out it’s really good for ratings.”
The CEO of CNN’s parent company, Jason Kilar

“Biden says, and the MSM goes along, that anything less than $1.9 trillion in new spending is a ‘cut’, which is why Washington has a spending problem. That’s like a guy who makes $50k asking for a raise to $65k. His boss gives him $55k. The guy then claims his pay was cut $10k.”
Ari Fleischer

“My mother, who was a math teacher … often gave the Dr. Seuss book, ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go!’ to her students when they graduated. She also gave one to me. The story is about setting out in life, all the places that you’ll go, the challenges that you’ll see and how you will overcome them again and again. The storyline says that success is ‘98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.’ The challenges include the waiting place, where everyone is just waiting; and the fact that things will go well, ‘Except when they don’t. / Because, sometimes, they won’t. / I’m afraid that sometimes / you’ll play lonely games too. / Games you can’t win / ’cause you’ll play against you.’ That’s where we are as a country today. Playing games against ourselves. We worry more about the old illustrations and characters in books, rather than about children reading and attending school today. We are caught up in a game of division and reduction rather than addition and multiplication.”
Jackie Gingrich Cushman

“I’ve said before and I mean it, I wish Jen Psaki all the best. It’s a very hard job. But that being said, we took great pains during our administration to do hours and hours and hours of research beforehand, days sometimes… to get answers. And the great thing about being in the Trump White House was I always knew where my boss stood. Unlike other press secretaries that maybe didn’t have walk-in privileges to the Oval, I could walk in at any time, I always knew where he stood. Before every press conference, I would go in with a list of items that I thought the press would ask and go through one-by-one. I always knew where his head was at, so I didn’t have to do a lot of circling back President Trump gave a lot of access to me.”
Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany criticized current Biden press secretary Jen Psaki and her continuous promises to “circle back” with journalists when asked questions

 “If we do all this, if we do our part, if we do this together, by July the 4th, there’s a good chance you, your families, and friends will be able to get together in your backyard. Or, in your neighborhood, and have a cookout and a BBQ and celebrate Independence Day. That doesn’t mean large events with lots of people together, but it does mean small groups will be able to get together. A July 4th with your loved ones is the goal. But a goal—a lot can happen; conditions can change. The scientists have made clear that things may get worse again as new variants of the virus spread.”
President Biden said vaccinated people could celebrate July 4 with their families – but urged Americans to remain vigilant about the virus

“Who are you talking to? This is a free people, a free country. How dare you tell us who we can spend the Fourth of July with?” 
Tucker Carlson of FOX reacting to Biden’s primetime speech

“I stand behind my comment that the lockdowns are the single worst public health mistake in the last 100 years. We will be counting the catastrophic health and psychological harms, imposed on nearly every poor person on the face of the earth, for a generation. At the same time, they have not served to control the epidemic in the places where they have been most vigorously imposed. In the US, they have — at best — protected the ‘non-essential’ class from COVID, while exposing the essential working class to the disease. The lockdowns are trickle down epidemiology.”
Stanford University Medical School professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya

“Masking children is as absurd, illogical, nonsensical, and potentially dangerous as trying to stop ‘every case of Covid’ or ‘stopping Covid at all costs.’ Masks are not needed for children based on near zero risk in children. The risk of dying from Covid-19 is ‘almost zero’ for young people. The issue of masks in children is really a risk management question for parents and any decision-maker. The science is settled.”
The American Institute for Economic Research

“The spiraling tsunami at the border is overwhelming local communities, depleting budgets, crowding hospitals, and taking jobs from legal American workers. When I left office, we had achieved the most secure border in our country’s history. Under Biden, it will soon be worse, more dangerous, and more out of control than ever before. He has violated his oath of office to uphold our Constitution and enforce our laws.”
Donald Trump

“Migrants are showing up at the border wearing T-shirts that read, ‘Biden Please Let Us In!’ I suspect a lot of Americans would probably be interested in a T-shirt that read, ‘Biden Please Let Us Out’ … out of our homes and back into our schools, businesses, and churches.”
Gary Bauer

“We are not trying to close our borders. We are trying to … create an effective, moral, humane system.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki

“There’s nothing ‘effective, moral, or humane’ about empowering human, sex, and drug traffickers to increase their activity across our southern border and in American communities.”
Congressman Andy Biggs

“What is Jesus’s most cancelable statement? In Matthew 19, he says God made people ‘male and female’ and points to Adam and Eve as the model of marriage. That would get a lot of other people canceled these days.”
Frank J. Fleming

“Having children is about life, and life is about caring for more than just yourself. Calling abortion women’s health care and thinking that your job is three times more important than bringing new life into the world is not a sign of a healthy culture with a healthy soul. If we want insight into our baby bust, this is what we should be thinking about.”
Star Parker

“Biden claims he once told Putin, ‘I looked into your eyes and I don’t think you have a soul.’ I wonder if Putin replied, ‘I looked into yours and I don’t think you have a brain.’ In this case, of course, they would both be right!”

Dinesh D’Souza

“No king in history of the world has been the ruler of two billion people, but Mark Zuckerberg is. … You should not have power over two billion people. I just think that’s wrong.”
Facebook executive Benny Thomas

“Teens who fail to get a diploma are almost doomed to poverty. Nearly half the Central American adult migrants in the U.S. don’t have a high school diploma. Their education levels are lower than other immigrants or the U.S.-born population. And no surprise, they are also poorer. Worst of all, allowing this wave of migration to continue now will cripple our public schools and further set back our kids, just when they’re struggling to get back on the learning track. Message to Biden: close the border, protect our schools, and put our own kids first.”
Betsy McCaughey

“I would absolutely tip my hat. … The Trump administration made sure that we got in record time a vaccine up and out. That’s a great thing and it’s something we should all be excited about.”
Andy Slavitt, a senior adviser to the White House’s COVID team

“A couple months ago Gov. Cuomo was every Democrat’s hero while he was killing thousands of people in nursing homes. Says a lot about them that they’re only now coming around to the idea that he’s a terrible person.”
Caleb Hull

April

“The question in this case is not whether the governor acted wisely; it is whether he acted lawfully. We conclude he did not.” 
WI Supreme Court Justice Brian Hagedorn, after the court struck down Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’ statewide mask mandate as a coronavirus health-safety measure. In a 4-3 vote, the court decided Evers had violated state law by unilaterally issuing emergency orders to enforce the mandates without legislative approval.

“This is no run-of-the-mill case. We are in the midst of a worldwide pandemic that so far has claimed the lives of over a half million people in this country.”
Liberal Justice Ann Walsh Bradley

Residents “don’t need state government telling them how to live their lives.”
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos

“We are thankful for the people of Wisconsin, who are the real winners in this epic case that defied a tyrannical government and its puppets, namely Governor Tony Evers.”
Dan Miller, state director for Pro-Life Wisconsin Inc.

“Suddenly, like the recent shooter in Colorado, this lunatic is going to magically disappear from the news. If a depraved murderer doesn’t fit the woke narrative, he doesn’t exist.”
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz is predicting the story about the attack on the US Capitol will quickly go away, given the suspect doesn’t fit into the Left’s narrative about white supremacy

“I think it’s become clear that fairness is overrated … the idea that we should always give two sides equal weight and merit does not reflect the world we find ourselves in. That the sun sets in the west is a fact. Any contrary view does not deserve our time or attention. Decisions to not give unsupported arguments equal time are not a dereliction of journalistic responsibility or some kind of agenda, in fact, it’s just the opposite.”
NBC News anchor Lester Holt while accepting an award at the 45th Murrow Symposium

“They’re grotesque. Fairness is never overrated … If you don’t strive to be fair, you are certain to commit moral atrocities, but again, not just true for network newsreaders. By the way, when did newsreaders become philosophers? I think Lester Holt seems like a perfectly nice guy, but you don’t turn to Lester Holt for deepthink. The truth is, he’s saying that we know what we know, and we shouldn’t question it, when in fact the reality of life suggests that’s completely wrong.

“That’s like a perfect inversion of what journalism is supposed to be. It’s supposed to, in the famous formulation, make the powerful uncomfortable and comfort the afflicted. But that’s the opposite of what it does.

“Now the citizens of my community, they’re concerned. They are afraid. I had a meeting with them almost two weeks ago, near the location where all these immigrants are coming across. Now, they are concerned. They want to know what is their right to defend themselves and stuff. So, you know, I just try to ease their calm because a lot of these people they are basically family units, and they have been peaceful to this point.

“They just wiped out the old policy under the Trump administration and when they took over, the Biden administration didn’t have a plan to put their new policy in place. These people who are coming across are telling us the Biden administration was going to be more lax than the previous one, and that’s why they are crossing. That’s why they are coming and it’s only going to get worse.”

“You can’t have a good-paying job without a healthy business. But if you’re taxing and regulating businesses to death, you’re going to extinguish healthy jobs, millions of them. In other words, business is labor’s best friend. And to get the work done and produce, labor is business’s best friend. They both work together to benefit the entire country. The Biden approach is just class warfare. That is really their agenda. In a futile effort to redistribute income, they want to tax successful businesses and entrepreneurs. They don’t really care about economic growth. They’re only interested in these left-wing social policies, violating the American dream, violating American traditions, going all the way back to the Founding Fathers. They want to punish success. That runs completely against the American Dream. One thing about Donald Trump, he understood the need to reward success, not punish it.”

He is brave, he is bold, he loves our Country, our Military, and our Vets. He will protect our Second Amendment, and everything else we stand for. It is the kind of courage we need in the U.S. Senate.  He has no idea how popular he is. Run, Ron, Run!”

“Today, we witnessed a blatant overreach and attack on our second amendment rights. The sitting president of the United States of America signed six executive orders aimed at stripping millions of legal gun owners across the country of their sacred, unalienable rights.

“It’s been said time and again – our Second Amendment right to bear arms is the only thing protecting the American people from an overreaching government. Our Constitution is set in stone. You don’t get to pick and choose which sections you adhere to and respect based off of a political agenda, and this bill makes that crystal clear.”
State Senator Mary Felzkowski, a Republican lawmaker out of Tomahawk, is authoring legislation that would make Wisconsin a Second Amendment sanctuary state. The bill would prevent the federal government from confiscating firearms or ammunition which are legally owned and made in Wisconsin. Her announcement came on the same day President Joe Biden announced executive action on gun reform.

“It’s really unacceptable that Biden is so obsessed with Trump reversals that he’ll literally put the American public, and these [migrant] kids, at risk the way he is. And then he gives Kamala Harris — apparently, she’s the one in charge. This is the same person who encouraged 7,000 migrants to come to America. She referred to ICE as the KKK. She’s now in charge of this. She’s been missing in action, and God help us if she ever becomes president, because if this is how she handles a crisis, I mean, I just can’t imagine how she would run our country.”

“Minorities have IDs. They have IDs when they’re checking in hotels, they have IDs when they’re checking out a library book, they have IDs when they’re in senior citizens facilities. They have ID even when they get the COVID shot. So, you know what, that is just being intellectually dishonest. What it really is saying, though, [is] that white liberals think that black people are too dumb or too ignorant to even want to have an ID, and they want to hold their hands.”
Vernon Jones, a Republican hopeful for the Georgia gubernatorial race this November, slammed criticism of that state’s recently passed voter ID law, arguing that white critics who oppose voter identification requirements have a low opinion of the intelligence of minority voters. 

Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott, who is black, said ‘In this country, if you’re black and you get pulled over by the police, you have a very much higher chance of being dead just because you’re black, and just because you’re encountering police. That is a fact we have to all wrestle with. We’ve seen this far too many times where a young black man or woman is pulled over by police or encounters police and they end up dead. People protesting are asking when will this stop.’

“This is complete foolishness and utterly irresponsible rhetoric from the mayor of Brooklyn Center. I have worked with juveniles over the years and they hate three things: their fathers, the police, and all authority. What Mayor Elliot should have been saying was, ‘In this country, if you’re pulled over and resisting arrest by the police, you have a much higher chance of being killed just because you’re noncompliant, and just because you’re disobedient to police orders.’

“Another police shooting involving yet another race-bait narrative of a wannabe thug used to demean the authority of police. I have three sons and I train my boys to obey me and all authority including teachers, pastors, principals, and the police. This is setting them up for success, not blatant failure. Make Fatherhood Great Again! What if all dads would teach their boys how to obey and comply with authority? If black males want to stay alive with the police, stop resisting arrest!”

U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman, a Republican from Glenbeulah, said on the House floor that rapper Cardi B’s appearance at the Grammy Awards earlier this year was “inconsistent with basic decency” in a speech urging the Federal Communications Commission to ban performances like hers

“This gets me so mad ya don’t even know! I think we all been on the edge this week since we seen police brutality back to back including watching one of the biggest case in history go down DUE to police brutality but wait !

“In a recent Gallup survey, Democrats did much worse than Republicans in getting the right answer to the fundamental question: What are the chances that someone who gets COVID will need to be hospitalized? The answer is between one and five percent — 41 percent of Democrats thought it was over 50 percent. Another 28 percent put the chances at 20 to 49 [percent]. So if the right-wing media bubble has to own things like climate change denial, shouldn’t liberal media have to answer for ‘How did your audience end up believing such a bunch of crap about COVID?’

“Her message was clearly intended to get to the jury—‘If you will acquit or if you find the charge less than murder, we will burn down your buildings. We will burn down your businesses. We will attack you. We will do what happened to the witness—blood on their door.’

“This was an attempt to intimidate the jury. It’s borrowed precisely from the Ku Klux Klan of the 1930s and 1920s when the Klan would march outside of courthouses and threatened all kinds of reprisals if the jury ever dared convict a white person or acquit a black person. And so, efforts to intimidate a jury should result in a mistrial with the judge, of course, wouldn’t grant a mistrial because then he’d be responsible for the riots that would ensue, even though it was Waters who was responsible.”

Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz charged that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) was clearly trying to influence the jury in the Derek Chauvin trial when she traveled to Minnesota and said Chauvin should be found guilty

“Even after the (Chauvin) verdict, commentators who applauded the jury gave last year’s riots in American cities the credit for inspiring it. Not the facts. Not the law. But lawless protests. If a large faction of Americans really believe that only mayhem in the streets can guarantee justice in America, then this verdict will mean little and we are in for far more unrest ahead.”
The Wall Street Journal

Even though the video of what happened to George Floyd was horrifying and the case became a symbol of racial justice in America, there is zero evidence that the outcome would have been any different if George Floyd had been white. There was no evidence suggesting that Police Officer Derek Chauvin was motivated by racism. There were no racial comments made on the video. It may well be an example of bad policing. But it is not evidence of racism by law enforcement.

That being said, his actions were uncalled for. I don’t care what color the person is on the street. I don’t know what led to that video that we saw where his knee is on his neck, but the man had thrown in the towel.”

“The only people who wear masks outside are zealots and neurotics. Your response when you see children wearing masks as they play should be no different from your response to seeing someone beat a kid in Walmart. Call the police immediately, contact child protective services. Keep calling until someone arrives. What you’re looking at is abuse, it’s child abuse and you are morally obligated to attempt to prevent it.”

Tucker Carlson who also said seeing a vaccinated person wear a mask outdoors was like “watching a grown man expose himself in public”

“Last week the CDC said that of the 78 million Americans who at the time had been vaccinated (the number is now about 96 million) only 5,800 had subsequently caught COVID-19, or about 0.007 percent. Of those, 74 died, or about 0.00009 percent.”
John Daniel Davidson at The Federalist

“Dr. Fauci has been all over the place. Americans are so frustrated. First, he said no masks at the outset of the pandemic. Then, he said one mask. Then, two. Now, he’s saying we don’t need masks outside, except for children who are at very low risk from the virus. What I’m most concerned with is Americans’ First Amendment liberties that have been attacked by the government over the past year. Your rights to free speech, the right to practice one’s faith, go to work, school and other vital liberties.

“Last night, President Biden said ‘we should choose truth over fear.’ Yet, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says those who are fully vaccinated can gather indoors without a mask, but if you noticed the President, his Vice President Kamala Harris, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and others in the congressional chamber were all wearing masks despite being vaccinated. That’s succumbing to fear, not the truth.”

Ranking member of the judiciary committee, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, gave his reaction to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s inconsistent mask guidance damaging his credibility

“When we look at this administration, the way they’ve treated this whole thing has amounted to a huge amount of theater, as opposed to actual science. When the president comes out with a mask over, and over, and over again, he sends the message implicitly that if you get vaccinated, nothing will change.” 
Ben Domenech

“Dr. Anthony Fauci, the moment he came out last year and said that we needed to shut down schools, he should have been fired.”

“The message we get today from the Biden administration is that the government needs to save people — that people are unable to help themselves. When people believe this message, they begin to lose their own agency, which can ultimately lead them to become helpless as a learned belief, and therefore always dependent on the government. While we should help those who need it, we need to do so in a way that leads to a productive outcome, as well as a strengthened belief in oneself and one’s ability to move forward under one’s own agency. We do need to work together, but not with the government in the lead or in control.”

“If you did not watch the Derek Chauvin trial, but only heard the inflammatory comments spewing out of the White House and the media-Democrat complex, there are things about it you would never know. And you’d be apt to believe the claims that American law enforcement is systemically racist. I watched the trial day in and day out, so let me cut you in on a few basic facts. Not a shred of evidence was introduced at the trial that Derek Chauvin is a racist. None. There was nothing in the weeks of testimony that even hinted at such a thing.”
Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy

“You know the reason why advertisers in this country love the 18 to 34 demographic? Because it’s the most gullible. Yeah. A third of people under 35 say they’re in favor of abolishing the police — not defunding, but doing away with a police force altogether, which is less of a policy position and more of a leg tattoo. Thirty-six percent of Millennials think it might be a good idea to try communism, but much of the world did try it. I know, Millennials think that doesn’t count because they weren’t alive when it happened. But it did happen. And there are people around who remember it. … The problem isn’t that I don’t get what you’re saying or that I’m old. The problem is that your ideas are stupid.”

“People will wear a mask everywhere for a whole year because they’re afraid of a disease but won’t lay off the fast food and lose a few pounds. The latter will do much more to preserve your health. But sure, you’re ‘health conscious’ with that mask and all that extra body fat.”

Ben Shapiro

“[Democrats] are in fact defunding the police by demoralizing the police. As we have previously reported, cities across the country are reporting massive police resignations and retirements. Meanwhile, recruitment of new officers is nearly impossible. Why? Because many of our elites, including the president, constantly claim that American law enforcement is racist. Hollywood celebrities compare our police to Nazis. Millionaire athletes call our police pigs. Now the Biden Justice Department is launching investigations of entire police departments. Would you stay in a job where you risked your life every day only to be called a racist, a Nazi and a pig? Make no mistake about it: There is a war against cops in America. Some on the left are open about it. They demand we get rid of the police. Others claim they disagree. But they use rhetoric and push policies that will result in only one logical outcome — more crime and fewer police to protect you.”
Gary Bauer

“Redefining language is nothing new for the left. When they can’t win public opinion with the truth, they change the meanings of words to trick the public into their way of thinking. Examples abound. Bill Clinton famously called taxes ‘contributions’ and talked about how the government needed more of them from you. But if you actually treated them like contributions and decided that they were voluntary, armed IRS agents would knock on your door and put a lien on your home. And when it comes to abortion, there’s no such thing as a baby growing inside her mother’s womb anymore; it’s now called a ‘product of conception.’ That’s the left’s way of pretending that abortion isn’t the destruction of human life. … And what about when a politician tells you that they’re cutting spending? In typical Washington-speak, spending cuts aren’t actually cuts in spending but cuts to increases in spending. So they’re still spending more money than they did before — just not as much as they wanted. … The American Jobs Plan is being used as a Trojan horse to hide an agenda that would cost American families, chase jobs out of the country, add trillions to the debt, and concentrate more power with the federal government.”

State Senator Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green). Unemployed people in WI will again be required to search for work in order to receive government assistance, following the repeal of a rule waiving the requirement during the COVID-19 pandemic. The waiver was set to expire on July 10, but will instead end on Sunday. Republicans on the Legislature’s Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules voted 6-4 on Wednesday to reinstate the rule.

“Biden has been in office for less than five months, but that’s been enough to show that he was elected on false premises: He is not a moderate, he is not a unifier, and he will not rein in his party’s rabid left flank. The country is increasingly on edge, and the worst is likely yet to come.”
Andrew McCarthy

But instead, they put Hamas terrorists in charge, who started shooting missiles into Israel.

“According to AAA, when Biden was elected, the average gasoline price across America was $2.20 a gallon. Since then, the price has risen every month, and on May 15 of this year, the average gas price hit $3.04. Make no mistake: this 84-cent-per-gallon price hike is a highly regressive ‘tax’ on motorists, just as lower gas prices during the Trump administration were the equivalent of a tax cut for consumers. … Biden still has a straight face while saying that no one with an income of less than $400,000 a year will pay higher taxes under his economic plan. Come on, Joe. Get out of the Washington bubble, and go to a gas station. People of all incomes are paying your gas ‘tax.’”

“Recent revelations show that Fauci hid information from the American people, including a tip that the Wuhan coronavirus could have been ‘engineered,’ in a lab via gain of function research. Fauci chose to ignore this and other information given to him by scientists.”

Townhall.com“Emails sent to the nation’s top infectious disease specialist during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic raised questions about the origins of the virus, which remain unanswered today. ‘We think that there is a possibility that the virus was released from a lab in wuhan, the biotech area of china,’ read a February 2020 email to Dr. Anthony Fauci from Dr. Michael Jacobs, who stated he is a Cornell Medical School graduate and dermatologist.

“Jacobs asked Fauci to discuss the issue further, and records show Fauci passed the message to a colleague, writing, ‘Please handle.’

“The exchange was just one of more than 3,200 pages of Fauci’s emails obtained by Buzzfeed and The Washington Post via the Freedom of Information Act.”

“Why do Democrats remain so fearful of Trump? Remember these numbers: 4, 6, 8 and 12. In 2008, when Barack Obama got elected, his Republican opponent received 4% of the Black vote. When Obama won reelection, the Republican got 6% of the Black presidential vote. When Trump ran in 2016, he received 8% of the Black vote. When Trump ran for reelection in 2020, Republicans received 12% of the Black vote, a 50% increase over the previous four years. Republicans haven’t reached that percentage of the Black vote since 1980, when President Ronald Reagan got 14%. Quite simply, this 4%, 6%, 8%, 12% trendline gives Democrats nightmares.”

Except in large cities, such as New York, school boards are where the power is. … Of course, schools should teach about America’s past failures, along with its triumphs, and probe racial injustice where it still exists. But of paramount importance, young people should learn that their character and deeds matter more than their race.”

“We can never apologize enough, and I am so sincerely sorry for what happened to these individuals. The abuse they suffered was not their fault. It was the fault of criminals who used the sanctity of the priesthood to commit crimes, and I am sick to my stomach when I think about it. The Catholic Church in Wisconsin, if not the country, is the largest provider of training to protect children from sexual abuse. The (archdiocese) itself has provided safe environment training to almost 100,000 individuals who work with minors. It seems like the Church could be a model for others to follow and the Attorney General could be investigating ongoing crimes from today, not from decades past.”

“The Biden administration has also issued regulations to indoctrinate America’s school children with poisonous and divisive left-wing doctrines, such as critical race theory, and exact opposite of the American belief that we all are created equal in the holy image of God. We have a group of people, I don’t know where they come from, but it’s hell, I think.


“Just as the state House of Representatives has done right here in North Carolina, Republicans at every level should move immediately to ban critical race theory in our schools. And we should ban it in workplaces. We should ban it in our states, and we should ban it in the federal government, that it should be done immediately. It should be done very quickly.”
President Trump at the NC GOP Convention

“I was on Long Island this weekend and … I was really disturbed. I saw you know, dozens and dozens of pick-up trucks with expletives against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases just dozens of American flags, which, you know, is also just disturbing because essentially the message was clear. It was: ‘This is my country, this is not your country, I own this.’”
New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay

The most frequent question people pose to me is: What can I/we do to fight back against the nihilistic anti-American destruction of virtually all the country’s major institutions?

There is an answer.

The single best thing Americans can do to counter the left-wing attack on America — against its freedoms, its schools, its families, its children, its governmental institutions, its sports, its news and entertainment media, its medical establishment, the CIA, the FBI, the State Department and the military — is to take their children out of America’s schools.

Other than in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), the vast majority of America’s elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities teach your child or grandchild almost nothing important; prematurely sexualize them, thereby robbing them of their innocence; and harm them intellectually and morally.

“With so much money already flowing into Wisconsin from the federal government, this additional revenue gives us an opportunity to invest in the state’s priorities and to cut taxes for hard working families.”
WI Assembly Speaker Robin Vos after the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau announced the state will collect $4.4 billion more in tax revenues

“Last year was tough for everyone in our state. Now is not the time to change course and raise taxes on the hard-working families and businesses like the Governor proposes in his biennial budget. This surplus came from the hard-working people of our state and should go back to those same hard-working people. Income, property, and personal property tax cuts should all be on the table.”

“The Gestapo wants to see your papers, please.”

“I have to say to you, I’ve only been president for several months, but I think this will go down, for me, as one of the greatest honors I will have as president.”

Joe Biden at a ceremony signing legislation into law on Thursday establishing June 19 as Juneteenth National Independence Day — a US federal holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States

“First of all, our Independence Day is July 4th. Period. Independence Day celebrates the anniversary of our declared independence from Great Britain, and it’s been that way for 245 years.

“If you want to call Juneteenth, for example, Freedom Day or Emancipation Day then fine — that’s certainly worth considering. But calling it Independence Day is WHOLLY INAPPROPIATE.

“Second, we can’t just add new federal holidays without considering the ramifications.

“When Obama issued an executive order in 2014 giving federal employees an extra day off, that cost the government roughly $660 MILLION dollars, according to the Congressional Budget Office. So given inflation and the obnoxious growth of the federal government, this means a Juneteenth holiday should easily cost the federal government over a billion dollars Every. Single. Year. in federal payroll & holiday premiums with no offsets!”
Rep. Ralph Norman, a South Carolina Republican, was one of 14 House Republicans to vote against making Juneteenth Day a federal holiday

House Democrats “used their majority to balkanize our country and fuel separatism by creating a race-based ‘Independence Day. It is unfortunate that some have chosen to politicize the naming of this important historical event … to turn Americans against one another and foment division based on skin color instead of uniting us.”
WI Congressman Tom Tiffany who also voted against making Juneteenth Day a federal holiday

“Juneteenth is soooo lame. Democrats really need to stop trying to repackage segregation. I’ll be celebrating July 4th and July 4th only. I’m American.”

“Critical race theory is bigoted, it is a lie, and it is every bit as racist as the klansmen in white sheets. Critical race theory says every white person is a racist. Critical race theory says America is fundamentally and irredeemably racist. Critical race theory seeks to turn us against each other and, if someone has different colored skin, seeks to make us hate that person.”

“It’s really becoming a desperate situation, that’s why we’re calling it a workforce emergency. Businesses are trying to give away incentives such as signing bonuses, gift cards for people to come back, but then they don’t. [Evers] knows darn well we’ve got a problem and extra benefits are exacerbating it.”
Kurt Bauer, president/CEO of Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC). A recent survey conducted by WMC shows 86% of their members are struggling to hire and 85% support eliminating the extra $300 a week in enhanced unemployment benefits as a way to incentivize people to go back to work.

“We’re living in two different realities as white and black people.”
CNN’s Don Lemon

“What is the different reality he is forced to live in as a black man in America? We did a little bit of digging and here are the details: Don Lemon lives in a $4.3 million home in Sag Harbor, New York. No, he does not live in Section 8 housing. He lives in one of the whitest towns in America, in fact, 80%. Sag Harbor is just 3% African-American.

“In the interview, he said America needs to see more people like him. He regularly lectures America about diversity. What he didn’t tell the Washington Post is that, in his free time, he runs away from diversity. His reality is that he doesn’t like diversity at all. None of them do.”

FOX’s Tucker Carlson

“Crime is a problem all over America. It’s going to get worse as some of it is driven by gangs and drugs, which are pouring across the border in record numbers. But it is most prominent in places where the left is in complete control. At some point the voters of these cities have to wake up. By the way, I couldn’t help but notice the irony of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot declaring racism a ‘public health emergency.’ Not only is this the same bigoted mayor who refuses to grant interviews to white journalists, she had the audacity to declare: ‘At almost every single point in our city’s history, racism has taken a devastating toll on the health and well-being of our residents of color — especially those who are Black.’ Well, Democrats have dominated Chicago for decades. So, I guess we know who’s to blame for the city’s history of racism.”

If I was a true female — I can’t believe I’m saying that — and I was competing in weightlifting and lost to this person, I would be beside myself.”

“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.”

“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.

But we’ll see how phony it feels next election day.”

 “For decades, going back at least as far as the 1973 Roe v.

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.”

“This morning, I’m providing more than $2 billion in tax relief and cutting taxes for middle-class families at a time when our economy and families need it most.”

WI Gov. Tony Evers signing the state budget that was essentially written by GOP legislators

“Governor Tony Evers deserves NO credit for signing our budget. This was not a bipartisan process of colleagues sharing ideas. He got boxed into a corner and rather than fight for his unpopular budget and risk a political knockout, he and his team threw in the towel and signed our responsible budget. He is not a fighter. He is not a leader. He did not sign our conservative budget out of bipartisan motives. He is merely sensible enough to recognize a better budget when he sees one. Governor Evers proposed raising taxes by more than $1 billion to fund his tax-and spend budget. Instead, the Legislature listened to Wisconsinites and passed the most conservative spending plan in a generation including tax cut of more than $3 billion. The Legislature targeted funding increases to health care providers, special education, local roads, and mental health services – investing in areas of need while cutting taxes and holding state spending to historic lows. Today, despite minor, politically-motivated partial vetoes, our Wisconsin Budget will become law. The Legislature delivered a Wisconsin Budget that benefits everyone and sets our state on a solid foundation for the future.
Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu (R-Oostburg)

“Let’s not forget that the budget Governor Evers presented included a billion dollar tax hike.. As he tours the state today bragging about the bill he’s signing, we need to all remember that he’s signing Republican middle-class tax cuts: the tax cuts my Republican colleagues crafted, voted for, and took heat from Tony Evers and his allies on because they wanted to raise taxes instead.”
Sen. Kathy Bernier (R-Chippewa Falls)

“He gets some credit for signing it, but remember, he proposed major tax increases. We threw those out, and now we have major tax cuts. So yes, of course the governor signed it so he is able to say he agreed with us in the end, but we pulled him kind of kicking and screaming to get to that point. It’s kind of like when you’re in college and you have people working on a group project and when one person doesn’t show up until the last meeting and then tries to take credit for all of the good work done by other people. That’s pretty much what happened here.”

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) said Wisconsinites shouldn’t attribute the tax cuts in the state budget to Gov. Evers

“It is vital to understand that the [Capitol] ‘insurrection’ obsession is itself grounded in another claim of far more serious import: that there was no fraud in the Nov. 2020 election, and that Joe Biden won the presidency ‘fair and square.’ While this is certainly possible … the still-inexplicable simultaneous vote count stoppages in multiple battleground states, coupled with millions of unverified mailed-in ballots and massive middle-of-the-night vote dumps for Biden, raised legitimate suspicions that Americans deserve to have addressed.”
Laura Hollis

“Lots of people on the Left really really really do not want you to know what is happening in your child’s school. That tells you everything you need to know.”
Matt Walsh

“There is a connection between bad schools and lack of parental involvement. When you have strong parental involvement, parents pressure their schools to remove such teachers. Because of strong, protective teachers unions, these teachers are rarely fired, merely shuffled from school to school, until they land in one where few parents complain. And while the vast majority of teachers do not fall into that ‘bad’ category, look at where public school teachers send their own school-age children. Nationwide, approximately 10% of kids attend private school. Six percent of Black kids do so. But more than 20% of public school teachers send their own kids to private schools.”
Larry Elder

“Why don’t we have cameras in every classroom? It makes total sense that, obviously, we should want to know what our kids are being taught. Teachers as government employees, in their capacity as government employees working with kids, they shouldn’t get privacy or free speech. Is there anything that could happen inside a public school classroom that you absolutely would not want on film? And if you can think of something that could happen like that, it shouldn’t be happening in the classroom to begin with.”

Those are the people who are supposed to take the largesse and government handouts the educated dispense, and be grateful. Those are the people who are supposed to shut up and do as they are told.”

“[Democrats are] trying to label Republicans as people who want to suppress the vote.

Journalist Brit Hume

“If the left believes with all their heart that America is racist, systemically racist and terrible in so many ways, why don’t they build the wall on the southern border? Why don’t they stop illegal immigrants from coming into this terrible country? They welcome illegal immigrants coming in. In fact, illegal immigrants want to come into this country. Because they know it’s such a great country.”
Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO)

“If you are looking for systemic racism, don’t look in the American story; it can be found in an educational system that has yet to teach true history in its entirety. Our nation has always sought to form a more perfect union, and though not flawless, it has done better than any other in the history of mankind. Within our DNA is a desire to unify and encourage the acceptance of others.”
Congressman Burgess Owens  

“The two parties are switching class constituents. Some 65% of the Americans making more than $500,000 a year are Democrats, and 74% of those who earn less than $100,000 a year are Republicans, according to IRS statistics. Gone are the days of working people automatically voting Democratic, or Republicans being caricatured as a party of stockbrokers on golf courses. … The Democratic Party does not wish to admit it has become the party of wealth. All too often its stale revolutionary speechifying sounds more like penance arising from guilt than genuine advocacy for middle-class citizens of all races.”

Victor Davis Hanson

“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.

But sex is the only destructive behavior that the grown-ups just can’t bring themselves to discourage outright.”

“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.

“The labor crisis has reached every corner of our state. Yet Democrats have the gall to tell employers there’s no supporting data and that the worker crisis is fake. The governor has finally acknowledged it but thinks more government will solve the issue. We already have programs in place to help people find jobs, what we need is to get people off the couch and go back to work, and we do that by removing the weekly federal bonus check. I had hoped my Democratic colleagues would put politics aside to fix an actual issue affecting employers across the state, but it seems they’ll stick to their marching orders no matter the cost.”

“Governor, I appreciate your passion for education—however, as usual, you’re trying to fix problems by throwing more money at them. That’s just lazy leadership on your part.

State Senator Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) regarding Governor Evers’ call for a special session of the legislature to take up additional funding for education

“The initial goal of public policy was to flatten the curve so we wouldn’t overwhelm hospitals. At some point, federal agencies moved the goal posts. The initial goal was achievable.

“People need to see that police officers go through horrible things, and Jan. 6 was a horrible thing for some of those officers. But, quite frankly, I find this whole Jan. 6 Commission, frankly, a dog and pony show. It doesn’t tell the whole story.

“Myself, like millions of Americans, sat there watching the testimony thinking, ‘Wait, where are the police officers who appeared – appeared – to let some of the protesters in? Where is the police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt? In fact, why aren’t we talking about Ashli Babbitt? I mean there’s so much more here.

“I want the American public to hear about that (riots spurred by the death of George Floyd). The American public wants to hear about that. They want to hear the testimony. You know, we have a Las Vegas police officer who is still paralyzed from the Black Lives Matter riots. We have thousands of police officers around the country who are retiring because of post-traumatic stress because of the riots.

“The 2020 riots, we can’t just say the whole George Floyd thing was bad and that’s what cops have to deal with and then watch these four weeping men talk about their experiences, ignoring thousands and thousands of police officers, ignoring their feelings and their experiences and their injuries. she said.

“It’s heartbreaking.  I have some cops who would rather go back to Iraq than continue to work on the street, just because of the massive amounts of blood and bodies and everything they deal with that people don’t see.

“It’s taking its toll. We already had a police officer mental health crisis in this country before George Floyd, and now the uptick in police officer suicides is reaching a crisis level.”

National Police Association spokeswoman Betsy Brantner Smith.  Brantner Smith’s comments came the day after four law enforcement officers who responded to the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol gave testimony to a House select committee about their experience.

All over the world, the best educated white people are also the most likely to be stupid. By educated, I mean the number of years spent in school, and nothing more. By stupidity, I mean a lack of common sense, as in a denial of human nature.

The latest evidence to support this observation can be found in the results of a Pew Research Center survey, published July 27. Pew found that 56% of adults surveyed believe that “gender is determined by sex assigned at birth,” and 41% believe it can be different. Who believes the latter? “Liberal Democrats are particularly likely to say gender can be different from sex assigned at birth.” In fact, 81% believe this to be true.

Also, “those with a bachelor’s degree or more education are more likely than those who do not have a college degree to say a person’s gender can be different from sex assigned at birth.” Regarding race, white people are the most likely to accept this position; blacks are the least likely.

Here are some basic biological facts that are resisted by educated white people.

A male carries the XY chromosomes; a female carries XX. Sorry, folks, there is no third combination—no XYZ exists. It’s a binary fact of life.

Males have a penis, scrotum, and testicles. Females have a vagina, uterus, and ovaries. Yes, one can pay a doctor to mutilate his genitals and construct a Lego-type replacement—though many trans persons refuse to finish the job—but this is still not a game changer.  

Educated white people who deny what nature, and nature’s God, has ordained, need to be deprogrammed. Either that or they will continue to prove just how stupid they really are.

“I am declaring my candidacy for governor of the great state of Wisconsin because I’m a mom who has two daughters that I just want to come back to Wisconsin and live their American dreams and one day raise their families. But they need safe streets; they need schools with actual education standards, and we need great-paying jobs. And unfortunately, our current governor, Tony Evers, has failed the people of Wisconsin.

“White Americans might not have really felt true fear before 9/11 because they never felt what it meant to be accessible, vulnerable, and on the receiving side of military violence at home. But, white Americans’ experiences are not a stand-in for ‘America.’ White Americans might not have really felt true fear before 9/11 because they never felt what it meant to be accessible, vulnerable, and on the receiving side of military violence at home. We have to be more honest about what 9/11 was and what it wasn’t. It was an attack on the heteropatriarchal capitalistic systems that America relies upon to wrangle other countries into passivity. It was an attack on the systems many white Americans fight to protect.”

“Why is it that you’re trying to require anybody with a job or anybody who goes to school to get the COVID-19 vaccine, but you’re not requiring that of migrants that continue walking across the southern border into the country?” 
Reporter Peter Doocy questioning White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki 

“Well, look, our objective is to get as many people vaccinated across the country as humanly possible. And so the president’s announcement yesterday was an effort to empower businesses to give businesses the tools to protect their workforces — that’s exactly what we did.”
Psaki not answering Doocy’s question 

“There are elected officials actively working to undermine the fight against COVID-19. Instead of encouraging people to get vaccinated and mask up, they’re ordering mobile morgues for the unvaccinated dying from COVID in their communities. Right now, local school officials are trying to keep children safe in a pandemic while their governor picks a fight with them and even threatens their salaries or their jobs. Talk about bullying in schools. If they’ll not help, if these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic, I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way.”

“Rest assured, we will fight them to the gates of hell to protect the liberty and livelihood of every South Carolinian.”
South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster 

“When Joe Biden looked into the camera and told us that we had lost the right to make our own health care decisions, no buildings exploded, no lives were lost. But it was still an attack on America and our core values. In many ways, it has the very real potential to do what 9/11 didn’t: destroy the free foundations of our country. The White House will say that its vaccine mandate is about public safety and common sense – and that to beat the pandemic, we all have to give up some liberties. As John Daniel Davidson writes so insightfully for the Federalist, that’s a lie. This is about government coercion and raw power – and nothing, Biden made clear Thursday, will stand in their way of either.”
Tony Perkins, The Patriot Post

“[Dr. Anthony Fauci’s gain-of-function lie is] a felony punishable by five years in jail.

“The perpetrators of the former event, who were bent on no less than bringing the American nation to its knees, murdered 2,977 people that day.

“Wisconsin is still struggling to make up for the cuts that were made to public education during the Great Recession, despite the fact that over half the U.S. has found a way to do so.

We need to look at improving how they are being taught and why so many students are struggling with the basics – reading, writing, and arithmetic.

Hudson, Ohio Mayor Craig Shubert told the Hudson Board of Education after some high school students taking a college credit course had been given a book titled “642 Things to Write About.” Among the prompts were two that stood out to parents: “write a sex scene you wouldn’t show your mom,” “rewrite the sex scene from above into one that you’d let your mom read.” Hudson City Schools Superintendent Phil Herman agreed the book contained “inappropriate and offensive writing prompts” and has since been removed from the schools. Hudson High School principal Brian Wilch offered an apology to parents for failing to “exercise due diligence” in giving students the book. “We feel terrible. At no time were any of these inappropriate prompts selected or discussed, but still they were there and they were viewable, and you can’t unsee them.”

Milwaukee needs new leadership, and the people need it now. Milwaukeeans deserve better than a leader who has already checked out. Mayor Barrett hasn’t done enough to stop out-of-control crime.

“If we want to stop crime in Wisconsin’s largest cities from spilling into the rest of the state, we need to get serious about this problem now.

“That was the one that angered me the most,” he said, visibly pained. If he’d ever said anything like that in front of members of the military, there would have been a fight, he said. “Think of it. I’m standing there with generals and people in the military. Just from a common-sense standpoint, we’re all smart people,” he said. “If I said that in front of generals, I would say, despite the fact that I’m president of the United States, there would be fisticuffs. You understand that?”

“Sadly, data from the Department of Education indicates a majority of fourth graders don’t know why Europeans sought new trade routes in the 1400s, and only 8 percent have a full understanding of how Native Americans were impacted by European colonists. Further, only 34 percent can identify Jamestown as the first English colony, and fewer than 33 percent of eighth graders know why we fought England during the Revolutionary War. We have a good deal of catching up to do and erasing pivotal figures such as Christopher Columbus will only put us further behind. Instead of rewriting history, we should make every effort to study it.”

“A local newspaper featured a photo of some large local males and the deers they just killed. You instinctively know that they own trucks, drink beer, work with their hands, have tattoos, are often brutal and mean, and are bone ignorant. Or so goes the stereotype held by the elites who run things. A proud professor, I once held the same opinion, wanting to live in a university environment filled with ideas, great culture, and people who ‘mattered.’ In my old age, thank God, I realize that I had it all backwards. I know some of those hunters—we live among them—and have been consistently impressed by their common sense, decency, and patriotism. These rough rurals should be judged (we all judge) by their individual characters—the way all of us should be assessed. Forget the cruel stereotypes. And look what our universities have become: cesspools of leftist conformity and intolerance. I would trust one of those hunters any day ahead of the degreed totalitarians I spent much of my life with.”

“I realize I’m in the crosshairs of the woke mob right now. So before my final nail gets put in my canceled-culture casket, I think I’d like to set the record straight on so many of the blatant lies that are out there about myself right now.

“The great MLK said, ‘You have a moral obligation to object to unjust rules,’” Rodgers said, “and rules that make no sense. In my opinion, it makes no sense for me.” 

“Some of the rules to me are not based in science at all. “They’re based purely in trying to out and shame people. Like needing to wear a mask at the podium when every person in the room is vaccinated and wearing a mask makes no sense to me. If you got vaccinated to protect yourself from a virus that I don’t have as an unvaccinated individual, then why are you worried about anything that I can give you?” 
Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers in an interview Friday after he tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday

“Good luck to Rodgers rolling this one back. He will now be known as a guy who is slicker than his TV hair, who thought he was unique, too much so to follow rules, and more precious than anyone in the room. May he make a speedy return to the Green Bay Packers with no symptoms, but as for sympathy, that should be diverted to people who shared spaces with him when he was unmasked, who now have to sit around and wonder whether they brought something home because he was too coy with the coronavirus.

“Obviously, it’s Rodgers’s choice whether to get vaxxed, and there are plenty of defensible reasons not to — and he should be able to hold his beliefs without being publicly demeaned. But what Rodgers did was demeaning to others. He also had a choice about whether to be forthright about his status or be duplicitous. He chose the second option and apparently went around unmasked to make it convincing. Rodgers betrayed another belief with those actions — or, rather, a lack of belief. He does not believe that we all have to share some sacrifices in getting through this wretched minor-keys measure of history. Only you do. Not him. Your pandemic is not his concern. He is indifferent to it.”
Sally Jenkins of the Washington Post

“What went wrong is stupid wokeness. Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey. Look at Long Island. Buffalo. Look at Minneapolis. Even look at Seattle, Washington. I mean, this ‘defund the police’ lunacy, this ‘take Abraham Lincoln’s name off of schools’ — people see that. And it really has a suppressive effect on all across the country on Democrats. Some of these people need to go to a woke detox center or something.”
James Carville

“The reality is that America is not on board with decreasing the number of police officers in their neighborhoods. They do not favor injecting far-left wokeism into the nation’s classrooms. Moreover, many are beginning to grow weary of onerous COVID-19 restrictions.

“These are only a few of the issues on which the Democrats have proven they are out of touch with what the public wants. This, combined with the fact that President Joe Biden continues to botch every crisis he attracts, portends that next year’s elections might go even worse for the left than what people previously believed. The fact that Democratic lawmakers have failed to pass meaningful legislation is not helping either.”

“I stand by what I said and the reasons why I made the decision.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers acknowledged how his comment of being ‘immunized’ back in August could be perceived as misleading

“Instead of consulting immunologists, he consulted anti-vaxxer and podcast host Joe Rogan, who also contracted the virus. If he ever requires open-heart surgery, will he hand the scalpel to romance writers because they know about matters of the heart? While many who came into contact with him thought he was vaccinated, Rodgers had embarked on his own regimen to boost his ‘natural immunity.’ He failed, as any scientist could have told him – and as they have been publicly telling us for over a year.” Rodgers’ statements are bringing “back to life the old stereotype of the big dumb jock.”

Under Biden, you want to buy a home, it costs more; you want to rent a home, it costs more; to put food on the table, it costs more; to put gas in the car, it costs more; to get Christmas presents, it costs more. Everything costs more because they have the dumbest economic plan in history. Their plan is basically, lock down the economy, spend like crazy, pay people not to work. And then what are they going to do in this next bill for the people who have been working, they’re going to raise their taxes and spend even more money. Stupid plan. And that’s why we’re in the situation we are. And why families are being shortchanged like they are under this administration.”

“These people (leftists) are nuts. They spend all day on television and after they’re off the air talking to everybody, and they all agree with each other because they all live in one or two cities.

They make something up, because they can’t comprehend it.”

Kyle Rittenhouse was “on his way home. He wants to get on with his life. He has a huge sense of relief for what the jury did to him today. He wishes none of this would have ever happened.

In Wisconsin, if you don’t put a client on the stand, you’re going to lose, period.”

Mark Richards, a Rittenhouse defense attorney, speaking to reporters after Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges

“We are heartbroken and angry that Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted in his criminal trial for the murder of our son Anthony Huber. There was no justice today for Anthony, or for Mr. Rittenhouse’s other victims, Joseph Rosenbaum and Gaige Grosskreutz. It sends the unacceptable message that armed civilians can show up in any town, incite violence, and then use the danger they have created to justify shooting people in the street. We hope that decent people will join us in forcefully rejecting that message and demanding more of our laws, our officials, and our justice system.”

“The state’s bail recommendation in this case was inappropriately low in light of the nature of the recent charges and the pending charges against Mr. Brooks.”
Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm taking the blame for the low bail set for Darrell Brooks Jr. in a case earlier this month

“Is there going to be an individual I divert, or I put into treatment program, who’s going to go out and kill somebody? You bet. Guaranteed. It’s guaranteed to happen. It does not invalidate the overall approach.”
Chisholm in an interview with the Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal in 2007. Chisholm has long advocated lower bail as part of criminal justice reforms.

“Wisconsin continues to see examples of people with extensive criminal histories committing crimes while out on bail. Most recent was the tragic and horrific attack on the Waukesha Christmas parade by an individual with a long history of violent crimes.”
State Rep. Cindi Duchow, a Delafield Republican, proposed a constitutional amendment that would allow judges and court commissioners to consider how dangerous or violent a defendant is when setting bail. Currently, bail is to be used primarily to ensure a defendant will appear at future court hearings. 

“Mr. President, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial and understand the facts before you say [I’m a white supremacist]. It’s actual malice, defaming my character, for him to say something like that.”

If his (Biden’s) approval rating sinks too far below 50 percent, it becomes more likely than not that the next election will reinstall into power his exiled predecessor, who has never relinquished his claim and by all appearances is intent on running for a second term in 2024.

“I just feel like I’m being monster – demonized.”
Darrell Brooks in an interview with FOX News

“Yeah, sorry—he’s trash. He’s a career criminal. He’s a menace to society. He’s a child sex offender. And he could soon add murderer to his list of crimes. He faces life in prison if convicted. He’s being held on $5 million bail. He should be held without bail, to be honest. When you run over and kill six people, one of whom was younger than 10 years old—you deserve to be dragged through the mud.”
Matt Vespa, Townhall.com

Darrell Brooks Jr. should never have been on the street the night police say he murdered six and injured more than 60 at the Waukesha Christmas Parade.

He should have been in jail.

About two weeks before he allegedly drove his maroon Ford Escape onto the parade route, Brooks was charged with running over a female acquaintance with the same vehicle and was facing serious felony charges.

But the Milwaukee County district attorney’s office recommended bail of only $1,000 in the attack on the woman — a stunningly low amount given the gravity of the charges and his past history of violence. A court commissioner granted the low bail.

If Brooks had been kept in jail to protect the community from a dangerous career criminal, the carnage in Waukesha might have been avoided.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial board

“Prosecutors knew that [Darrell Brooks] had a lifetime of violence and bail-jumping and disregarding the law, but Wisconsin prosecutors recommended a $1,000 bond. … And now, six body bags later, prosecutors finally concede that bond was too low. We already know that. $1,000 was too low when you set it. Now, after six people are dead, and dozens more injured, you set the bond at $5 million. So what’s different now? He was a career criminal before he killed six people at a Christmas parade. We don’t need prosecutors to react after there are six bodies laying on a parade route; we need prosecutors and politicians who prioritize public safety beforehand.”

He’s been political. He’s been partisan. And the American people know it.”

“Mr. President, I hope you see this. … I’d have a sit-down and I’ll explain the facts to you so you can understand them. If he reached out, I’d be happy to tell him my side of the story of what happened.”
Kyle Rittenhouse says that he’s willing to meet with President Joe Biden in order to clear up any misconceptions surrounding the murder trial in which he was acquitted on all charges

“I understand, and we all understand, how people do not like to be told what to do. They wanna make their own choice and their own free will. I get that and I respect that. But these are unusual times, and you can’t think only of yourself and your own personal opinion. … I would prefer, and we all would prefer, that people would be voluntarily getting vaccinated, but if they’re not gonna do that, sometimes you’ve gotta do things that are unpopular, but that clearly supersede individual choices.”
Anthony Fauci

“Screw … all who are all about hiding behind religious exemptions because they don’t want anybody to tell them what to do. … [They] deserve whatever comes their way, including losing jobs, getting sick, and perhaps dying from this virus. … I don’t know why the GOP doesn’t just take those guns they profess to love so much and just start shooting all of their constituents who think this way. It would be quicker and ultimately safer than putting me and my friends and family at risk.”

If I’m in the health I’m in now — I’m in good health — then, in fact, I would run again. I’m a great respecter of fate. Fate has intervened in my life many, many times. You’re trying to tempt me now. Sure. Why would I not run against Donald Trump if he were the nominee? That would increase the prospect of running.”
Joe Biden

“Today, inflation’s the biggest threat I think we have right now. … No matter what we have done, we’ve sent out $5.4 trillion to try to help people to try to stave off a medical disaster, if you will, because of COVID when it first came. So, we’ve dodged that. We got a vaccine out earlier than anyone thought could happen. And then, on top of that, we dodged a financial crisis. But we’re getting into it because they’re making more of a crisis on the individual person today because of the high cost of inflation.”
Senator Joe Manchin

“Joe Manchin and his whole family are a criminal enterprise. Is he really the best WV has to offer its own citizens? Surely there’s someone there who has the state’s interests at heart, not his own!”
Bette Midler

“What #JoeManchin, who represents a population smaller than Brooklyn, has done to the rest of America, who wants to move forward, not backward, like his state, is horrible. He sold us out. He wants us all to be just like his state, West Virginia. Poor, illiterate and strung out.”
Liberal actress Bette Midler in a tweet. The attack came after the Democratic senator announced he could not move forward on the “mammoth” Build Back Better legislation.
