QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“@JoeBiden is unwell. He’s unfit for office. He’s incoherent, incapacitated & confused. If Biden wants to actually fix the inflation crisis he created, he should resign.”
Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.)

“The truth is, President Biden won the nomination because he promised not to be Bernie Sanders. Who has he tried to emulate? Bernie Sanders. After 14 months, we know that President Biden believes in bigger government, higher taxes, more spending, more debt, more regulation, a weaker military, open borders, taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand, and turning cops into social workers. His energy policy — here’s his energy policy: wind, solar, and wishful thinking. He thinks he can run the greatest economy, the most powerful economy in all of human history, without fossil fuels. And that’s one of the main reasons why the prices at the pump are so high. And the American people see this. They see that after 14 months, nothing is built, nothing is back, and nothing is better — and that’s why when you poll it, the American people say, ‘Well, the country is headed in the wrong direction.’ And the president, he has no self-awareness, or at least the people around him won’t allow him to have self-awareness about the real problem.”
Senator John Kennedy

“Remember those long lines you’d see on the television? People lining up in all kinds of vehicles just to get a box of food in their trunk. How quickly we forget! People were hurting. And what did the MAGA crowd want to do? Forget it. Forget it. God, this is the United States of America. The idea that people would have to wait in line an hour, an hour and a half to get a box of food in their trunk. It’s just unbelievable.”
Joe Biden

“In Joe Biden’s America, it seems like it’s easier to get a crack pipe in a government-funded smoking kit than it is to find baby formula.”
Congressman Mike Waltz

“Here’s my feeling about the [Dobbs v. Jackson] leaker. I would like to find out who the leaker is so I could make sweet love to that person, because that person is a hero to me. … If the leaker is a Republican, and if I get pregnant during our lovemaking, I will joyfully abort our fetus and let them know.”
“Comedian” Laurie Kilmartin

“I understand the frustration that many are feeling. I feel it too. Roe has been the law of the land for 49 years, nearly my entire lifetime. But it may not be the law of the land for my daughters. … If we do not use every lever of power we have right now, or if we succumb to complacency, Americans will suffer and may die.”
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer

“Real hard to take people seriously about Jan 6 when their political allies are vandalizing churches, firebombing pro-life centers, and harassing families in their private residences all because they don’t like a Supreme Court opinion.”
Erick Erickson

“This whole … argument about, ‘Well, it’s settled law.’ So was segregation…. So that’s a bulls*** argument.”
Bill Maher

“Over the course of my time in politics, the far left has called me a ‘prop,’ a ‘token,’ the N-word, ‘Uncle Tim,’ and worse all because I am a Black Republican. This type of divisive behavior is not what America is all about — and it will not stop me from speaking the truth.”
Senator Tim Scott

“Our educational system may not teach students much math or science, but students learn from gutless academic administrators that mob rule is the way to get what you want — and to silence those who disagree with you.”
Thomas Sowell

“The NBA, which pulled its All Star Game out of Charlotte over a transgender bathroom bill, is playing games next year in the United Arab Emirates where homosexuality is punishable by death.”
Clay Travis
