QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“To the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the Court was intended to undermine the integrity of our operations, it will not succeed. The work of the Court will not be affected in any way. We at the Court are blessed to have a workforce — permanent employees and law clerks alike — intensely loyal to the institution and dedicated to the rule of law. Court employees have an exemplary and important tradition of respecting the confidentiality of the judicial process and upholding the trust of the Court. This was a singular and egregious breach of that trust that is an affront to the Court and the community of public servants who work here. I have directed the Marshal of the Court to launch an investigation into the source of the leak.”
Chief Justice John Roberts

“Whoever committed this lawless act knew exactly what it could bring about. … Everybody knows what kind of climate the far Left is trying to fuel.”
Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell

“It’s impossible to overstate the earthquake this will cause inside the Court, in terms of the destruction of trust among the Justices and staff. This leak is the gravest, most unforgivable sin.”
SCOTUSblog on the Supreme Court leak

“The [Politico] article represents the greatest crisis that Chief Justice John Roberts has faced in his tenure on the Court.”
George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley

“Roe v. Wade removed much of the regulation of abortion from the democratic process. Under Roe, if everyone in Wisconsin woke up tomorrow and wished to outlaw third trimester abortions except for rape, incest and to save the life of the mother, they would have be unable to do so. For almost 50 years, Roe has, for all practical purposes, created a right to abortion at any time and for any reason.

“This may be about the end. Although a court can always surprise you, it is likely that, early this summer, the United States Supreme Court will overturn Roe in a case called Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The majority in Dobbs (as opposed to the left-progressive justices who can be expected to dissent) will not turn on whether or when abortion is a good idea or even whether a woman should be able to choose to have one. Our Constitution is not a license for unelected judges and justices to engage in a free-wheeling inquiry as to what rights we should or should not have.

“To the contrary, the Dobbs decision will focus on whether such a right can be found in — or fairly implied from — the language of the Constitution. And therein lies the not-so-secret problem with Roe. The ‘right’ to an abortion is nowhere to be found — at least not by any method that can be called law.”
Rick Eisenberg is president and general counsel for the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty

“The left insists that the American people overwhelmingly support abortion. Well, if that’s true, then why are they so afraid of letting the people in the states have a say?”
Gary Bauer

“Hearing a lot of Leftists … say that abortion is a ‘difficult choice.’ Okay, please explain why. The only answer: because there is the life of a preborn child involved. Now explain why your personal interests allow for its death.”
Ben Shapiro

“Dear people upset Roe is dying. I want you to remember the feeling of dread you have right now. Now understand this is nothing compared to the feeling you’ll have on the day of judgment you think is a myth. Repent.”
Erick Erickson

“Why is it that so many people who are ‘pro-choice’ when it comes to abortion are against choice when it comes to letting parents choose where their children go to school?”
Thomas Sowell

“The Republicans won’t stop with banning abortion. They want to ban interracial marriage. Do you want to save that? Well, then you should probably vote.”
Congressman Eric Swalwell

“Justice Thomas is leading the charge to ban interracial marriage? What if his wife finds out?”
Frank J. Fleming

“‘Consent to sex isn’t consent to pregnancy.’ Yes, yes, it is. That’s like saying eating food isn’t consent to digestion.”
Allie Beth Stuckey

“If we’re gonna have a pregnant man emoji, then I think it’s okay for men to have opinions on abortion.”
Greg Price

“I could be wrong but if you have 12 hours to protest outside the court you probably have 2 minutes to buy a condom.”
Jimmy Failla

“How can overturning Roe v Wade be an assault on women’s rights if you can’t tell us what a woman is?”
Liz Wheeler

“This is an incredibly asinine policy. The reality is today, 56% of all student loan debt is owned by people with graduate degrees. So what the Biden administration is going to say to … blue-collar workers across our country who never had the opportunity to go to college [is], ‘We’re going to take your taxpayer dollars and subsidize lawyers, bankers, and people that have graduate degrees, doctors across our country.’ It makes no sense. It’s an entirely regressive policy. There’s nothing progressive about it.”
Former vice presidential chief of staff Marc Short

“Biden is just a front man. Obama, April 21: social media censors ‘don’t go far enough,’ so the government needs to step in to do the job. Six days later, Homeland Security rolls out the ‘Ministry of Truth’ (aka Disinformation Governance Board).”
Former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard

“There’s not been many senators from Delaware. It’s a small state. As a matter of fact, there’s never been one.”
Former Delaware Senator Joe Biden

“President Joe Biden used Saturday night’s return of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner to reaffirm the role of the free press — a stark contrast to his predecessor’s toxic relationship with the media.”
Politico

“Joe Biden called the only reporter who regularly asks him tough questions ‘a stupid son of a bitch.’”
Jerry Dunleavy

“Republicans don’t want to tear down Mickey Mouse’s house. We just don’t wanna wait in line for 2 hours to ride ‘Snow White And The Seven Genders.’”
Jimmy Failla

“The film (HBO’s ‘Transhood’ (2020) documentary)follows four families in Kansas City, Missouri, all of which include a child who identifies as transgender. It takes place over five years. Two of the children, 12-year-old Jay (a girl who identifies as a boy) and 15-year-old Leena (the opposite), have been placed on hormone pharmaceuticals by their parents in order to suppress their natural puberty.

“In the most shocking scene, Leena, who wants his penis to more closely resemble a vagina (a procedure that literally involves splitting the phallus longways in half), visits a surgeon, Dr. Marci Bowers, who tells him, ‘The thing is, a penis is basically the same thing as a clitoris. Everything a girl has, a boy has and everything a boy has, a girl has.’

“Bowers is a man who identifies as a woman. And he should immediately have his medical license revoked for lying to a child, encouraging him to permanently mutilate his sex organs.”
Political analyst Eddie Scarry

“Only a stupid or sick person would believe that the best way to treat a gender-dysphoric child is to affirm his or her mental state with irreversible hormone treatments and surgeries, before the child is even old enough to sign a consent form.
Political analyst Eddie Scarry

“The ‘insurrection’ at the Capitol was another example thrown back in Musk’s face, as if that proves conservatives have become more radical. The rioting fools that day aren’t representative of conservatives. As for the vast majority of folks at the Capitol that day, again, they were reacting. Democrats changed the rules of elections all over the country — rules that both parties had generally agreed upon for ages, until COVID gave Democrats an excuse to change procedures. When the results were, ahem, less than reliable, conservatives reacted with alarm and anger. It takes some special chutzpah for Democrats to complain about that now.”
Nate Jackson

“If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 60 years ago, a liberal 30 years ago and a racist today.”
Thomas Sowell

“Anyone who says the Left has not radicalized over the course of the last twenty years is insane. In 2008, Barack Obama defended traditional marriage. The 2008 DNC platform said, ‘taking police off of the street is neither tough nor smart; we reject this disastrous approach.’ Twelve years ago, not a major Democrat in America would have contended that a boy can be a girl. Now the White House announces that states must be forced to allow puberty blockers and body mutilation for minors. Meanwhile, you literally cannot name a political position on which the right has moved right. It does not exist. The right has actually moved Left overall on issues ranging from gay marriage to deficit spending. By ‘moving right,’ the media means reacting to Left-wing aggression.”
Ben Shapiro

“Over the last 16 tortuous months of the Biden presidency, it’s become clear that the Democrats are running on empty. They are not even trying to reset their electorally poisonous policies. Politically this means they are heading for annihilation at the midterms. Yet they appear curiously relaxed, as if winning elections is no longer a priority. One thing you know is that the Dems are not hiding under the duvet sucking their thumbs. Like the Fantastic Mr. Fox, they have a cunning plan. They might not be any good at governing, but when it comes to seizing power by foul means or fair, they are world-class.”
Miranda Devine

We regulate many things in this country in the interest of public health and safety. Drugs, cars, professional licenses, etc. We need gun control reform. Now.”
Actor Alec Baldwin

“I think all rational people can agree the-gun control movement doesn’t want Alec Baldwin as its spokesman. In fact, I can’t think of a worse person to do the job. When you’ve allegedly shot and killed a woman, you should probably never lecture law-abiding citizens about needing ‘gun control reform.’”
David Hookstead

“It was a trans man!”
Dave Chappelle joking moments after an individual attacked him on stage, a reference to the fact Chappelle has publicly affirmed there are only two genders
