QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Nowadays I am so upset because the things we did, and the things we fought for, and the boys that died for it, it’s all gone down the drain. Our country is going to hell in a handbasket. We haven’t got the country we had when I was raised, not at all. … That’s not what our boys, that’s not what they died for. It’s just not the same. That isn’t what we fought for.”
Decorated World War II Marine veteran Carl Dekel on the occasion of his 100th birthday, just ahead of the 246 celebration of American independence

“The American Dream is not something handed to us, like a gift, by government. It is something we alone can create and realize — and we can only do so in a nation that safeguards the God-given freedoms with which our Creator has blessed us.”
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

“Oil and gas companies are engaging in price gouging. This is why folks are paying record prices while corporations enjoy record profits.”
Senator Raphael Warnock

“You voted 4 times to cancel the Keystone Pipeline and against domestic drilling. Quit blaming others — you created this problem.”
U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker

“To the evangelical leaders telling us we shouldn’t celebrate overturning Roe when we’re not doing enough for moms and children: you’re wrong. For decades, Pro-lifers have been doing all the work you say needs to be done. You are welcome to get off the couch and join us.”
Allie Beth Stuckey

“WOMEN OF THE WORLD! We are being stripped of our rights over our bodies, our lives and even of our name! They don’t call us ‘women’ anymore; they call us ‘birthing people’ or ‘menstruators’, and even ‘people with vaginas’! Don’t let them erase you!”
Actress Bette Midler

“There is this sense that things are kind of out of control and [Joe Biden is] not in command.”
Barack Obama’s former chief strategist, David Axelrod

“I have no sympathy for this supposed epiphany among Democrats and the media that Biden is incompetent. Every honest person recognized it during the 2020 campaign and the Democrats and media pro-actively covered it up. The only thing that’s changed is their polling nightmare.”
David Limbaugh

“We got to take this stuff seriously, as seriously as you are — because you have been forced to have to take it seriously.”
Vice President Kamala Harris

“I can’t describe how painful it is to be here now, in a place where the Supreme Court has the power to erase 50 years of constitutional law. Make no mistake: This is not where it ends. Conservatives will not rest until they have come for all of our rights. Everything we have fought for could be lost unless we take it back. … And we have to raise hell in our cities, in Washington, in every restaurant Justice Alito eats at for the rest of his life. Because if Republicans have made our lives hell, it’s time to return the favor.”
Comedienne Samantha Bee

“I certainly think that the greatest threat to the liberal coalition are black conservatives who stand up and think for ourselves. We represent the fact that the African-American community is not a monolithic community. If you can ever break the stronghold that the Democrats have on the African-American community, the entire coalition falls apart.”
Senator Tim Scott

“For many on the Left, the only thing worse than Satan is a black conservative. They feel that Clarence Thomas is ripe for particular scorn because he is black and he’s supposed to think a certain way.”
Former HUD Secretary Ben Carson

“The Rise of the Far-Right Latina — Representative Mayra Flores is one of three Republican Latinas vying to transform South Texas politics by shunning moderates and often embracing the extreme.”
The New York Times

“I was born in Burgos, Tamaulipas, Mexico, and raised with strong Conservative values to always put God and Family first. I have received only hate from the liberal media and constantly [been] told by the left to go back to Mexico. They don’t support us immigrants, they only use us for political power and don’t care about our well-being. I am here now and I won’t allow them to continue taking advantage of my people. The NYT knows nothing about me or our culture.”
Mayra Flores
