QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Spending $40 billion on Ukraine aid — more than three times what all of Europe has spent combined — is not in America’s interests. It neglects priorities at home (the border), allows Europe to freeload, short changes critical interests abroad and comes [with] no meaningful oversight.”
Senator Josh Hawley

“We already start our shifts with 50% of our resources not even performing enforcement activities. They’re in administrative duties. Once this explodes, we’re going to have nearly 100% of our people doing administrative duties rather than enforcement duties. That’s going to give complete control to the cartels. That’s a scary situation to be in.”
National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd regarding Title 42 repeal

“Biden should be given an honorary membership in the Mexican drug cartels because nobody has done more to help the cartels than Biden with his open-border policies.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis

“Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi decided to give everyone in Congress a Peloton gym membership. … There are parents who are going to eight or nine stores looking for baby formula, paying for gas that you can barely afford. But instead of trying to help these struggling families, Democrats are plundering their pocketbooks to pay for Pelosi’s Peloton membership. You can’t imagine a more out-of-touch party.”
House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy


“The real president is whoever controls the teleprompter. The path to power is the path to the teleprompter. I do feel like if somebody were to accidentally lean on the teleprompter, it’s going to be like ‘Anchorman.’”
Elon Musk

“This administration doesn’t seem to get a lot done. The Trump administration, leaving Trump aside, there were a lot of people in the administration who were effective at getting things done.”
Elon Musk

“The Republican Party has moved further to the right than Democrats have to the left. … That idealogical divide breaks down to the the Republican Party being an extremist party, and the Democratic Party actually … moving more to the center.”
“The View” cohost Sunny Hostin

“49 out of 50 Senate Democrats just voted to require states to allow abortion on demand up until the moment of birth. This notion that the Democrat party has ‘moved to the center’ completely ignores everything elected Democrats have done these last few years.”
Matt Whitlock

“One of the bittersweet things about growing old is realizing how mistaken you were when you were young. As a young political leftist, I saw the left as the voice of the common man. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
Thomas Sowell

“In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold.”
Elon Musk

“I don’t like mandating things. I don’t like punishing people for not doing something.”
Anthony Fauci

“When a black supremacist committed a massacre at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, the President of the United States refused to visit the victims. Nearly a month after the attack, he sent his wife for a photo op. Biden will be in Buffalo personally on Tuesday.”
Matt Walsh

“‘Everyone who says things I don’t like is responsible for mass shootings’ is the predicate for ‘everyone who says things I don’t like must be stopped from talking.’ That’s the game. And the media are playing it to the hilt.”
Ben Shapiro

“When it comes to the climate crisis … we will work together, and continue to work together, to address these issues, to tackle these challenges, and to work together as we continue to work operating from the new norms, rules, and agreements that we will convene to work together on, to galvanize global action. … I know we will work on this together.”
VP Kamala Harris

“You compare and contrast [Queen Elizabeth] at the age of 96 with Joe Biden at the age of 78, and, frankly, it is embarrassing. She looks to have far more energy and life about her than the president does.”
Piers Morgan

“I will absolutely leave the Court when I do my job as poorly as you [the media] do yours.”
Justice Clarence Thomas
