QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“You had to put on your windshield wipers to get literally the oil slick off the window. That’s why I and so damn many other people I grew up [with] have cancer.”
Joe Biden

“You know things have gotten ridiculous when the President of the United States says out loud that he has cancer and everyone responds by saying ‘oh, that’s probably just his dementia.’”
Greg Price

“At 79, Joe Biden is the oldest president in American history. Concerns about his age top the list for why Democratic voters want the party to find an alternative for 2024. I don’t think this reflects an ‘ageist’ prejudice against those who have reached such withering heights so much as an understanding that people in their late 70s and 80s wither. … Joe, please don’t run.”
Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich

“How come it’s wrong to produce our own oil and gas here, but you can go to Saudi Arabia and fist-bump to try to get it from Saudi? … We have opportunities here to be energy independent and not have to worry about any of these other countries. And yet they’re intentionally not doing it, and you can’t run a modern economy on windmills. You just can’t do it.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis

“Americans are paying $4-$5/gal of gas, and President Biden is devoting his time to America’s ‘climate emergency.’ The economic pain caused by his poor leadership is the real emergency.”
Senator Tommy Tuberville

“Democrats think Americans who are struggling with $4.50 gas can afford $65,000 electric cars.”
Senator Tom Cotton

“I’m still astonished that some folks … seem to really struggle to let go of the status quo. The more pain we are all experiencing from the high price of gas, the more benefit there is for those who can access electric vehicles.” 
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg

“I’d love to watch Pete Buttigieg try to drive a diesel tractor in a field for an hour. Or work on a construction site for five minutes. What an ignoramus.”
Katie Pavlich

“One 22 yr old man at an Indiana mall was more effective than 400 law enforcement officers at Uvalde.”
Tim Young

“There’s a real problem with younger reporters because they don’t believe as much as their older colleagues do in objectivity. They believe in subjectivity, and they believe their job in journalism is to move the needle, and to move it in a leftist direction, certainly not a free-market or conservative or pro-life direction. And that’s what journalism has become.”
Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer

“The average household uses 17% of their electricity for air conditioning. … If that average household plugged in electric cars … it would take four times as much electricity to charge the average household’s cars as the average household uses on air conditioning.”
Congressman Thomas Massie

“People like [Joe] Manchin … are intentionally sabotaging the president’s agenda, what the American people want, what a majority of us in the Democratic caucus want. Nothing new about this. And the problem was that we continue to talk to Manchin like he was serious. He was not. This is a guy who is a major recipient of fossil fuel money, a guy who has received campaign contributions from 25 Republican billionaires.”
Senator Bernie Sanders

“I’m here to ask you to do what you know how to do ‘cause when you do what you do on all of these issues, the American people win.”
Vice President Kamala Harris

“For the first time in generations, the United States Supreme Court … took away a constitutional right that had been recognized from the people of America, from the women of America. We know, NAACP, that our country has a history of claiming ownership over human bodies.”
Kamala Harris

“It’s important to note that to support a woman’s ability … to make that [abortion] decision does not require anyone to abandon their faith or their beliefs.”
Kamala Harris

“We know, NAACP, that our country has a history of claiming ownership over human bodies. And today, extremists, so-called leaders are criminalizing doctors and punishing women for making healthcare decisions for themselves — personal decisions that it is her right to make in consultation with her doctor, her pastor, her priest, her rabbi, her loved ones, not her government telling her what to do.”
VP Kamala Harris at the NAACP Convention, comparing pro-life laws to slavery

“One of the wilder aspects of the all the LGBTQ insanity is how ready and willing this country is to declare something a ‘mental health’ problem and toss a bottle of pills at it. Or ‘therapy.’ But if a teenage boy thinks he’s a woman, that’s just science.”
Jesse Kelly
