Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Kamala Harris, Pramila Jayapal, Gary Bauer, Jen Psaki, and more.

The BIG Lies

“Because of our economic policies, we now are reducing inflation. We have created over 14 million new jobs. … Wages are up. And so we’ve seen great progress.” —Vice President Kamala Harris

“The challenge that we have as an administration is we gotta let people know who brung it to ‘em! That’s our challenge. But it is not that the work we are doing is not very, very popular with a lot of people.” —Kamala Harris

Non Sequitur

“This is a double standard. The United States rightly called out Russia for its siege of Ukraine. … Our credibility and our authority on the moral stage is greatly diminished if we do not also call out this siege that Israel is launching on Gaza as violations of international law.” —Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA)

Non Compos Mentis

“The American people are actually quite far away from where the president and even Congress, the majority of Congress, has been on Israel and Gaza. … They do not support a war-crime exchange for another war crime.” —Pramila Jayapal

“The United States has a responsibility to deescalate the situation. … This is the moment for us … to call for a cessation of hostilities.” —Pramila Jayapal

For the Record

“No ceasefire with Hamas evil. If the world is truly concerned about Palestinian life, the answer is simple: Hamas must surrender.” —Ben Shapiro

“People who defend Hamas are your enemies. This is not a debate over tax policy.” —David Harsanyi

“The attack of October 7 claimed 33 American lives, making it one of the deadliest terrorist attacks for Americans in history. If, as Secretary Blinken suggests, another ten Americans remain captive in Gaza, then the attack of October 7 was also — is also — one of the worst hostage situations for Americans on record.” —Charles C.W. Cooke

“Does anyone think that anti-Semitism suddenly erupted on our college campuses overnight after Israel responded to the October 7th massacre? Of course not. This hatred has been festering in our universities for years. And left-wing ideologies, like 'diversity, equity and inclusion,’ are entirely responsible for it. Sadly, the more highly educated someone is, the more likely they are to be anti-Semitic.” —Gary Bauer

Leftmedia Lob

“It’s not just [House Speaker Mike Johnson’s] political ideology that should scare us. Johnson is basically a Christian fundamentalist. He believes that America is a Christian nation, and that those values should be reflected in our interpretation of the Constitution. His ideas of what America should be are completely out of line with what America actually is.” —MSNBC’s Jen Psaki

Lack of Self-Awareness Award

“Democracy will be on the ballot, as evidenced by the position that many of the election deniers on the other side of the aisle continue to hold.” —House Minority Leader/Election Denier Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY)

Belly Laugh of Day

“Biden is a leader with a vision for our future. He has the ambition to meet the challenges of the moment.” —Kamala Harris


“Today’s federal government is considerably at odds with that envisioned by the framers of the Constitution.” —Walter Williams (1936-2020)

And Last…

“We need to enforce the laws we already have. Hunter Biden is the poster boy for gun law enforcement! But there is nothing logical about taking away the rights of law-abiding Americans just because someone else breaks the law. And how many people were huddled in their homes wishing they had a gun when much of Maine was locked down Thursday?” —Gary Bauer
