Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Vicente Gonzalez, Kamala Harris, Gary Bauer, Armstrong Williams, and more.

Theater of the Absurd

“The rhetoric you hear from the Republican Party is shameful and disgraceful for Latinos. And you know, when you see ‘Latinos for Trump,’ to me it is like seeing ‘Jews for Hitler,’ almost, you know?” —Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX)


“In states around our country, extremists have proposed and passed laws that have denied women access to reproductive healthcare. … These attacks against an individual’s right to make decisions about their own body are outrageous and, in many instances, just plain old immoral.” —Kamala Harris

For the Record

“[Biden’s] border czar visiting an abortion clinic … tells you all you need to know about this administration’s priorities.” —Senator Steve Daines (R-MT)

“Politicians of both parties have long tried to show how loving they are by kissing the babies handed to them by proud parents on the campaign trail. Biden and Harris prefer going to places where babies go to die.” —Gary Bauer

Missing the Forest for the Trees

“I regret saying [inflation] was transitory.” —Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen (“Her regret should be helping President Biden cause the inflation with trillions in reckless spending.” —Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton)

The BIG Lie

“I was deeply involved initially in the civil rights movement.” —Joe Biden

Race Bait

“Women’s basketball needs faces of future to be Black.” —Lindsay Schnell in USA Today

Leftmedia Lob

“[Republicans are] avowedly against reading. They’re banning books!” —MSNBC’s Anand Giridharadas

Non Compos Mentis

“[Robert Hur’s report] represents the complete and total exoneration [of Biden].” —Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY)

The Lowdown

“One of the big takeaways from the newly released transcript of President Joe Biden’s two-day interview with Robert Hur is that the special counsel was being exceedingly generous when describing the president as a ‘sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.’” —David Harsanyi

Political Futures

“Given that there are currently no elections scheduled in Israel, what Schumer did on Thursday was nothing short of calling for the collapse of the democratically elected government of a close American ally during a time of war.” —National Review

“What stronger signal could there be that the Democratic leadership has heard the activist calls to rein in Israel than the previously staunch supporter of the Jewish state, Chuck Schumer, unloading on its wartime government?” —Rich Lowry

“America needs to recalibrate its priorities to protect the lives and aspirations of all its citizens, regardless of their race and gender. If our elites do not stop playing god and mandating their visions of heaven on earth, then they will surely ensure hell for us all.” —Victor Davis Hanson

Rainbow Mafia

“Science and common sense support the notion that by our mid-to-late 20s, the brain has reached complete maturity and development. This is why children often engage in foolish behavior without contemplating the repercussions, why a contract formed by a child is deemed void in legal terms, and why alcohol consumption hinders the development of children’s minds. Yet, when it comes to transgenderism, all that goes out the window.” —Armstrong Williams
