“This year we finally have the chance to get rid of Scott Walker, one of the worst senators this state has ever had.”
Dem candidate Mandela Barnes

That was quite the verbal slip by Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes Wednesday.

As Barnes accepted an endorsement from Alex Lasry, he blurted out “this year we have the chance finally to get rid of Scott Walker, one of the worst senators this state has ever had.”

The only problem: Barnes and Gov. Tony Evers already beat Walker, the former governor, in 2018.

And it’s Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson who Barnes is poised to take on in the fall.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“We need to hire more Black journalists, more Latino journalists and more Asian journalists. We need more women journalists in our newsroom and its leadership, too. A diverse and inclusive workforce helps us better connect and serve you, our readers and our community partners.”
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editor George Stanley. How about hiring more fair and objective reporters?

“I think there’s a very high likelihood of recession. When we’ve been in this kind of situation before, recession has essentially always followed when inflation has been high and unemployment has been low. Soft landings represent a kind of triumph of hope over experience. I think we’re very unlikely to see one.”
Former Obama economic advisor Larry Summers

“We’re likely to see some slowing of job creation. I don’t think that that’s a recession. A recession is broad-based weakness in the economy. We’re not seeing that now.”
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen

“Two negative quarters of GDP growth is not the technical definition of recession. It’s not the definition that economists have traditionally relied on.”
White House National Economic Council Director Brian Deese, July 2022

“The people denying we [are] in a recession are the same government officials and their shameless media enablers who for months denied we faced runaway inflation.”
Senator Marco Rubio

“After 18 months, we know what President Biden stands for. If you don’t know by now, you are as thick as a brick. He believes in bigger government, higher taxes, more spending, more debt, more regulation, open borders, a weaker military, and turning cops into social workers. And those policies have hurt the American people deeply. I’m talking about inflation,” he said. “Inflation, which is a direct result of the president’s policies, is a cancer on the American Dream, and it is rampant. It is unrestrained.”
Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.)

“Nearly 18 months of private chats between friends from the Trump White House show that Jan. 6 Committee star witness Cassidy Hutchinson dramatically changed her story about what she knew and how she felt about what she witnessed as a White House staffer. When Hutchinson testified in Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s Soviet-style show trial last month, the former White House aide to Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said she ‘still struggle[s] to work through the emotions’ of Jan. 6. … Yet in a series of private communications from December 2020 through May 2021 … Hutchinson commiserated with other targets of the probe about how little information she had about any wrongdoing that day, and lamented how corrupt the politicized committee was. Far from being upset with Trump, Hutchinson repeatedly spoke in favor of him and his presidency. ‘I would rather shoot myself dead into the Potomac than see marine one flying around this city without 45 again,’ Hutchinson wrote in one message nearly three months after the Capitol riot.”
Mollie Hemingway and Tristan Justice

“Journalists don’t usually share personal opinions or positions.”
Ex-CNN Democrat talking head Chris Cuomo. LOL

“DC [Mayor Muriel Bowser] calls for activating the National Guard to handle the influx of illegal migrants into the city, calling it a ‘humanitarian crisis.’ This is something she refused to do on January 6 but will do when 4,000 illegal migrants enter her city.”
Greg Price

“D.C. is experiencing a fraction of the disastrous impact the border crisis has caused Texas. Mayor Bowser should stop attacking Texas for securing the border & demand Joe Biden do his job.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott

“[She’s] running to the Pentagon, saying, ‘Oh, my gosh, we need the National Guard.’ Oh, you know what? Cry me a frickin’ river. Welcome to the party, pal.”
Congressman Chip Roy

“I didn’t recommend locking anything down. ”
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director  and liar Anthony Fauci

“Any state that is having a serious problem, that state should seriously look at shutting down.”
Fauci, July 2020

“When it became clear that we had community spread in the country … I recommended to the president that we shut the country down.”
Fauci, October 2020

“We’re gonna stand up against a law that says ‘don’t say gay,’ basically restricting kindergarten through third-grade teachers in Florida to be able to love openly and teach what they believe is important for people to understand.”
Vice President Kamala Harris

“We’re all gonna feel dumb when we find out AOC did get handcuffed by the same invisible guy Biden keeps shaking hands with.”
Jimmy Failla
