The Quotes Of The Day


Quote I

“It has been an honor to serve as chief usher, a position whose loyalty is not to a specific president, but rather to the institution of the presidency,” Former White House chief usher Timothy Harleth


*


Quote II

“The survival of our Republic depends upon making decisions that have to do with things like the attack that we saw on January 6,Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY)


*


Quote III

“The science around this virus is settled, and if we can all wear masks and be very smart about congregating, and not do it unless it’s necessary, washing our hands, doing that social distancing, we will be in a strong position in a few weeks. And we’ll be able to do more. That’s the hope.”Gov. Karen Whitmer (D-MI)

*

Quote IV

“We have the third largest oil reserves in the world. We ship about, nearly $100 billion worth of energy to the U.S. every year. Keystone XL would have been a significant safe, modern increase in that shipment. It is very — it’s very frustrating that one of the first acts of the new President was, I think, to disrespect America’s closest friend and ally, Canada. And to kill good-paying union jobs on both sides of the border and ultimately to make the United States more dependent on foreign oil imports from OPEC dictatorships. We don't understand it. And at the very least, we believe that those who've invested in this project, trusting in the regulatory process in the U.S. should be compensated by the U.S. administration." Alberta Canada Premier Jason Kenney


*


Quote V

“Look, I think the great horror of living in America right now is the absolute, complete and total breakdown of trust in our institutions,” Meghan McCain

*


Quote VI

“Independent crafters get really taken for a ride by the federal government. We get taxed to the nth degree, and it wasn’t really worth it pursuing that as a business, even as a side hustle. Mitten maker Jen Ellis

*

Quote VII

"You immediately say everything's a lie instead of saying there's two sides to everything. Historically what would happen is if I said I thought there was fraud, you'd interview someone else who said there wasn't. But now you insert yourself in the middle and say that the absolute fact is that everything I'm saying is a lie."Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)


***

Quote VIII

If we are going to have unity in our country, I think it’s important to recognize the need for accountability, for truth, and justice. So I think there will be a trial, and I hope it goes as quickly as possible, but that’s up to the council on both sides.”Sen.Pierre Delecto (RINO-UT)

A medical break through on the Kung Flu.

MONTREAL -- A team of researchers from the Montreal Heart Institute believe they have found an effective weapon against COVID-19: colchicine, an oral tablet already known and used for other diseases.

For Dr. Jean-Claude Tardif, who led the study, this is a "major scientific discovery," he said. Colchicine is the first "effective oral drug to treat out-of-hospital patients."

"To be able to offer this, from Quebec, and for the planet, we are very happy," said Tardif.

Play stupid games win stupid prizes.

A Tacoma police car pulled into an intersection when a mob of individuals swarmed his car and according to one witness, about ten of them tried to bust the windows.

The News Tribune reported a witness telling them that “a lot of people swarmed in that direction (of the police car)….They were intending to block him.”

The officer attempted to back up the vehicle and was able to a few feet before moving forward and striking several people and then leaving the scene.

Social media brought it’s usual outrage but in typical fashion, just a portion of the bystander video was shown (below):

It appears that the citizens of the Netherlands have had enough of the Kung Flu imprisionmnet.

Netherlands Institutes Curfew Over COVID, Citizens Respond By Rioting And Burning Sh*T Down…

Sometimes luck is better than skill. Then there are other times with a little luck and a lot of skill really excellent results occur.

AN SAS sniper fighting ISIS in Syria has taken out five jihadis with a single killer shot.

The hero marksman used one of the Army’s most powerful rifles to kill a suicide bomber from almost 3,000ft away.


The SAS soldier radioed his base to report that the terrorists had emerged and he had a clean shot.

A source claimed the plan was to shoot the suicide bomber first, and then the leader if they were able to identify him.

But, the marksman “got lucky.”

That's some damn fine shooting.


***

At least politicians in Oklahoma have a sense of humor.

An Oklahoma state representative introduced a bill that would establish a hunting season for one of the state's most infamous species of alleged native wildlife: Bigfoot.

Rep. Justin Humphrey, R-District 19, introduced a bill to the state legislature that would call on the Oklahoma Wildlife Commission to designate a Bigfoot hunting season.


I guess there are other bigger wastes of taxpayers money.

I bet our friend Nevergiveup is rooting for one of you to receive this job offer. Earn $30/Hour as a Professional Candy Taste-Tester

Do you like candy? Do you have opinions about it? Are you looking for a job? If you answered “yes” to all three questions, you may be interested in learning more about a position that will pay you cash money to taste-test candy. And no, this isn’t one of those “dream job” contests—it’s an actual role with a candy company. Here’s what you need to know.


The position
There’s not just one job up for grabs: Candy Funhouse is hiring 10 people to taste some candy. Two of those positions are full-time (working 8-hour shifts) and the other eight are part-time (15 hours a week). They all pay $30/hour.

SUPPOSEDLY THIS FACEBOOK LETTER TO BIDEN WAS WRITTEN BY TED NUGENT: I can’t tell you if it’s true or not, but Snopes rates it as “not proven.” I grant you it would be more sure to be true if they said it was false, but still, it’s pretty good.

SUPPOSEDLY THIS FACEBOOK LETTER TO BIDEN WAS WRITTEN BY TED NUGENT: I can’t tell you if it’s true or not, but Snopes rates it as “not proven.” I grant you it would be more sure to be true if they said it was false, but still, it’s pretty good.

Dear Vice President Biden,

Although I refused to listen to it, I understand that during your presidential acceptance speech, you were calling for the unity of Trump supporters.

I remember four years ago my President Trump also called for unity. I remember how Congressional members of your Democratic Party responded by boycotting his inauguration. I remember how you and your Democratic party cheated and used the greatest law enforcement institution of this country to spy on my President Trump’s campaign. I remember how you and your Democratic Party created a fake Russian dossier to try and impeach my President Trump. I remember how your speaker of the house ripped up my President Trump’s beautiful State of the Union speech on National TV. I remember how you and your Democratic Party tried to impeach my President Trump over a Ukraine phone call. You accused my President Trump of pay to play. Come to find out Joe, it was really you and your son Hunter.

I remember how you and your Democratic Party blamed my President Trump over a pandemic that he had nothing to do with. I remember how you and your Democratic Party encouraged rioting and looting of my great United States of America. I remember how you and your Democratic Party used the media to spread lie after lie about my President Trump. I remember how you and your Democratic Party stole the election from my President Trump. This Trump supporter remembers all that Joe, and will NOT be unifying with your Democratic Party. Your abject criminal dishonesty is treasonous. You belong in prison along with the rest of the Swamp.

Ted Nugent

How do you fight the Karens of the world? It's easy to get in their face via a Zoom meeting.

A MICHIGAN Commissioner who whipped out a rifle on a Zoom call following a question about Proud Boys, prpomting a petition for his resignation according to reports.

Traverse County Commissioner Ron Clous flashed the gun as resident Keli MacIntosh expressed fear that members of the extremist group.

It's Madison, WI so not shocking. Who needs enemies when you have a Chief of Police like this?

UW-Madison Police Chief Kristen Roman recently banned the thin blue line flag and imagery on everything from coffee mugs, notebooks, decals, flags and a wide array of other items. Her decision comes after the agency was criticized after some in the community saw a thin blue line flag in the background of a photo the agency displayed on social media.

For being so smart. She really is a stupid bitch who doesn't understand basic math.

Orangeman bad, bad, bad. Higher priced insulin and epipens, good, good, good.

In his ongoing campaign to expunge the Trump presidency, President Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) executed an order that would rescind the Trump administration executive order eliminating the inflated drug prices caused by a “shadowy system of kickbacks by middlemen.”

Last July, President Trump issued four executive orders that instructed the Secretary of Health and Human Services to “end a shadowy system of kickbacks by middlemen that lurks behind the high out-of-pocket costs many Americans face at the pharmacy counter.”

Is the pendulum starting to swing back against leftists? Couric wanted to deprogram Trump supporters and it cost her a big job. LOLGF!

It looks like it cost the far-left elitist a big job. She was in the lead for the host of Jeopardy, but now she’s fallen off their radar, Page Six reports.

Jeopardy’s audience averages 64.2 years of age, and they are very conservative. The show steers clear of politics to keep their audience.

The producers are worried about picking someone as polarizing as Katie Couric.

A source said, “Katie’s comments so soon after she was announced as a host are very concerning to the producers. They are worried there will be a backlash against her. There have already been some complaints.”

And finally........Fat, ugly and delusional is no way to go through life.......

Lena Dunham openly fantasizes about being Hunter Biden’s wife, gets reminded ‘he’s married’

'You know it’s ok not to broadcast every thought via Twitter.'


Lena Dunham is getting roasted online after openly fantasizing about being Hunter Biden’s wife.

The failure on your part should not constitute a police call on your part. Genius Award Winner.

Staff refused to serve her a McMuffin meal so she called police whining that it was “unfair”.

Inspector Darren Taylor explained: “This, of course, upset her and she wanted us to speak to McDonald’s about the situation as she felt it was unfair.

“We kindly informed her this was an incident which she should take up with McDonald’s and was not a police matter and that we would not be investigating her complaint.”

Rehab is going to be a bitch. But worth every pain. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

An Icelandic man has received the world’s first double arm and shoulder transplant more than 20 years after a devastating accident that forced doctors to amputate.

Felix Gretarsson, 48, is said to be recovering well after going under the knife for the pioneering 14-hour surgery nine days ago in Lyon, France. The operation has been hailed as a success although doctors are waiting to see how the dad-of-two responds.

But it will be a ‘life-changer’ if he can ‘recover the possibility to actively bend his elbow’, lead surgeon Aram Gazarian told a news conference yesterday.
