VILLAINS OF THE WEEK

Joe Biden. Why this week?

QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“[The J6 dog-and-pony show] was absolutely extraordinary because the normal way in which you conduct a hearing, whether in court or in the halls of Congress, is that you have members of both sides of different viewpoints. And the witnesses are put on to do their testimony, and then their testimony is challenged by cross-examination. There were no such witnesses last week except for a couple. What there was was really kind of a televised press release with soundbites. I’ve never seen anything quite like it in my life.”
Fox News political analyst Brit Hume

“Dear America, The government shut down your job, destroyed the value of your dollar, made you wear a useless mask, stopped any alternative treatments of COVID, and told you to take the ‘vaccine’ or be fired. And you didn’t get mad until gas prices got high. You’re the problem.”
Jesse Kelly

“If [inflation is] my fault, why is it the case in every other major industrial country in the world that inflation is higher? You ask yourself that? I’m not being a wise guy.”
Joe Biden

“The latest figures on inflation … indicate the following: Germany at 7.9%, France at 5.2%, Japan at 2.5%, India at 7.04%, Canada and Italy at 6.8%, and Saudi Arabia at 2.2%. Meanwhile, data released last week showed that U.S. inflation rose in May to a four-decade high of 8.6%.”
Fox News

“President Biden doesn’t have to travel to Saudi Arabia to bring down gas prices. Instead, he should travel to places like Midland, Texas. The American energy industry can pump just as much oil, and this will make America independent, not dependent.”
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

“An unprecedented 239,416 illegal immigrants were caught at the southern border in May — another month of the highest in DHS history. A 300% increase from the average May number under Trump.”
Republican National Committee

“That is not a question that we should be even asking.”
Karine Jean-Pierre when asked, “Does the president has the stamina, physically and mentally, do you think to continue on even after 2024?”

“The presidency is a monstrously taxing job, and the stark reality is the president would be closer to 90 than 80 at the end of a second term, and that would be a major issue.”
Former Obama adviser David Axelrod 

“To say our country was on the right track would flagrantly depart from reality. [Joe Biden] should announce his intent not to seek re-election in ‘24 right after the midterms.”
Democratic National Committee (DNC) member Steve Simeonidis

“Democrats need fresh, bold leadership for the 2024 presidential race. That can’t be Biden.”
DNC member Shelia Huggins

“[Thursday] I asked Fauci a simple question: Are there any studies that show a reduction in hospitalization or death for children that take a booster? His answer: No. Then why is the government recommending it?”
Senator Rand Paul

A year later, after four covid shots, Fauci got covid. Whoops!”
Clay Travis

“Now that we live in an age of uber-corporate responsibility where every large company in America bends over backwards to get on the politically correct side of every issue, Hollywood has to tell us — why doesn’t that include gun violence? When liberals scream, ‘Do something!’ after a mass shooting, why aren’t we also dealing with the fact that the average American kid sees 200,000 acts of violence on screens before the age of 18 and that, according to the FBI, one of the warning signs of a potential school shooter is ‘a fascination with violence-filled entertainment’? It’s funny, Hollywood is the wokest place on earth in every other area of social responsibility. … But when it comes to the unbridled romanticization of gun violence — crickets.”
Bill Maher

 “The current insane language of the Left is that it is ‘gender-affirming therapy’ to tell a little girl that she is a little boy, but ‘conversion therapy’ to tell a little girl that she is a little girl. Which makes a mockery of language, science, and logic.”
Ben Shapiro

For the first time in American history, we have a president who is championing the cause of child abuse. On June 15, the White House released a statement saying President Biden is issuing an executive order seeking to ban “conversion therapy,” the practice that allows someone who has “transitioned” to the opposite sex to reverse the process. He is putting the Department of Health and Human Services in charge of his policy.

In classic Orwellian doublespeak, the White House is saying Biden is taking multiple actions to “protect children across America,” falsely claiming that children who undergo “conversion therapy” face “higher rates of attempted suicide and trauma.” The facts are otherwise.

Six Swedish scientists studied those who had “transitioned” to the opposite sex and the findings were not auspicious. Their paper, “Long-Term Follow-Up of Transsexual Persons Undergoing Sex Reassignment Surgery: Cohort Study in Sweden,” found that in the course of 30 years, from 1973 to 2003, those who had “transitioned” had “considerably higher risks for mortality, suicidal behaviour, and psychiatric morbidity than the general population.”

A British study done by Birmingham University’s Aggressive Research Intelligence Facility, examined more than 100 studies on post-operative transgender persons and found that “none of these studies provides conclusive evidence that gender reassignment is beneficial for patients.”

What Biden is doing is worse. He said when he was running for president that he supports eight-year-olds who want to change their sex. Those are third graders. Yet if they were left alone, most would conclude that they do not want to switch their sex. Studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic found that 70-80 percent of children who had expressed an interest in changing their sex ultimately decided not to do so.

There needs to be a national moratorium on the pernicious practice of allowing children to switch their nature-assigned sex. Biden is spinning out of control in many areas, but his pathological obsession with encouraging little kids, who obviously have mental issues, to switch their sex (which technically cannot be done anyway) is simply off-the-charts.  
Catholic League president Bill Donohue

 “Ya know what’s not a problem for kids who are seeking a good education? Drag queens. Okay? Let me say this: Drag queens, not only are they not hurting our kids, drag queens make everything better. Drag queens are fun. Drag queens are entertainment. … I say this: a drag queen for every school! That is what would be fine for a kid and lift them up when they’re having emotional issues.”
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel

“Now that we have Joe Biden in office and full Democrat control, there’s an actual war on women. You can’t find baby formula for mothers, women’s sports has been completely invaded, men have taken over everything, they’re ‘women of the year’ in every category, in women’s categories. And, the latest news is, Bryan, that now there’s a shortage of tampons and that’s probably because men are buying tampons.

 “They put tampons in men’s bathrooms. Yes. The war on women.”
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA)

“According to CBS News out of the Top 10 deadliest cities in America, 7 of them are in Republican-run states.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

“Who runs those cities?”
Seth Dillon

 “The generation after me is just a complete trash heap. We need to have specific examples of how we’re dealing with things; it can’t just be pie-in-the-sky and kumbaya”
Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean
