Thursday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Mark Zuckerberg, AOC, Christopher Wray, Mike Johnson, and more.

The BIG Lie

“The existing body of scientific work has not shown a causal link between using social media and young people having worse mental health outcomes.” —Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg

Non Compos Mentis

“One of the highest rates of childhood homelessness and one of the highest contributors and factors is if they’re LGBT. Because if they go home to a place that will kick them out of their house because they are gay or trans or queer, how can we imagine them doing well in school?” —Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)

Baghdad Bob

“For years [Republicans] have refused to heed the president’s request for action on much-needed funding for border security.” —White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

Belly Laugh of the Day

“We signal resolve pretty well.” —National Security Council spokesman John Kirby

The ChiCom Chronicles

“If you took every single one of the FBI cyber agents and intelligence analysts and focused them exclusively on the China threat, China’s hackers would still outnumber FBI cyber personnel by at least 50 to 1.” —FBI Director Christopher Wray


“The Obama administration detained 82% of illegal aliens. How do we go from detaining 82% to releasing 85%? It only happens if this is by design.” —House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA)

“Illegals can walk across the border, beat up cops in NYC and be released without bail. This is a national embarrassment.” —Florida Governor Ron DeSantis

“Joe Biden is in violation of federal law that already exists. [H]e is not living up to his duty to deny illegal entry across the border. Instead, he’s aiding that illegal entry.” —Texas Governor Greg Abbott

“One thing about that Ilhan Omar clip is that she speaks with such pride and admiration for the failed state of Somalia, a country that contributes nothing of significance to the world besides piracy and terrorism. Our representatives rarely speak that way about our own nation. Omar certainly doesn’t. But few of them do. Maybe we should ask ourselves why we keep electing people who can’t muster the same affinity for our country that Somalian refugees have for the country they fled from.” —Matt Walsh

“In light of Omar’s candidness, it’s fair to ask: Why is she allowed to serve in Congress? Why is she even allowed to remain in the United States? Omar is an immigrant and a U.S. citizen, but clearly she is not an American. She appears to have no allegiance to her adopted country — a country that took her in, sheltered and protected her, provided a safe haven from the chaos and violence of her homeland, and elevated her to a position of power and influence.” —John Daniel Davidson

“A grand total of zero people have ever been arrested for protesting outside the houses of Supreme Court justices after Roe was overturned, which is a federal crime. But peaceful pro-lifers now face 11 years in jail for praying outside an abortion clinic.” —Greg Price

“If you tear down a statue of Thomas Jefferson, you’re seen as a progressive hero and the government won’t touch you. If you tear down a satanist statue, you’ll get charged with a hate crime. Our country is ridiculous.” —Michael Seifert

“Violent activists tore down dozens of statues including Columbus, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington. None were held accountable or charged with a hate crime. Michael Cassidy knocks over a Satan statue made out of household items and gets charged with a hate crime. Welcome to America’s 2-tier-justice system. The police state made it clear who they worship. Wokeness and Satanism is the new religion.” —Libs of TikTok
