Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Andrew Bates, Matt Margolis, James Carville, John Kennedy, and more.

Braying Jenny

“I’m grateful that our leadership was willing to do, I think, the bold, strong, resilient thing.” —MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on the firing of Ronna McDaniel, an intelligent and articulate Republican voice

Projection and BIG Lies

“Joe Biden won’t let Congressional Republicans defund the police, abolish law enforcement agencies like the FBI, gut crime prevention, or rollback landmark legislation critical to the fight against gun crime.” —White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates

“Violent crime surged under President Biden’s predecessor, but this president immediately fought back and has now reversed that trend with a historic reduction in crime.” —Andrew Bates

“[Biden took] unprecedented action to hire waves of police officers [and] invest in … effective crime reduction strategies.” —Andrew Bates

For the Record

“The American delegation to the United Nations Security Council abstained from voting on a resolution demanding an ‘immediate cease-fire … leading to a lasting sustainable cease-fire’ in Israel’s war in Gaza. Declining to veto left the other 14 council member nations to pass the resolution calling for the ceasefire to last at least through the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. Hamas gave no such consideration to the Jewish holidays of Sukkot and Simchat Torah when raping, enslaving, and slaughtering more than 1,200 Israelis (and 32 Americans) on October 7.” —Nate Jackson

“This retreat hurts the war effort as well as the effort to free the hostages because it gives Hamas hope that international pressure will allow them to get a ceasefire without freeing our hostages.” —Israeli Prime Minister’s Office

“The real question I have is whether Jewish Democrats will finally realize that the Democratic Party will always side with the enemy of the Jewish people.” —political analyst Matt Margolis

Open-Borders Blackmail

“Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador went on ‘60 Minutes’ this weekend and essentially blackmailed Biden. As CBS News put it, ‘[Obrador’s] message was clear on immigration: the flow of migrants will continue if the U.S. doesn’t address the root causes.’ His demands for addressing the root causes are $20 billion a year to Latin American countries, an end to sanctions on Cuba and Venezuela, and amnesty for millions of illegal aliens in America. Clearly, the president of Mexico smells weakness in the White House… This simply would not happen if Donald Trump was in the Oval Office.” —Gary Bauer

Belly Laugh of the Day

“When I look at [Biden’s] polling numbers, it’s like walking in on your grandma naked. You can’t get the image out of your mind.” —Democrat strategist James Carville

Toxic TikTok

“TikTok is unquestionably toxic for both kids and adults. Pretty much everyone who uses TikTok very quickly drops several IQ points and learns how to twerk — at least in the U.S., where the algorithm is fine-tuned for that express purpose. It’s also a spy app under the control of a hostile foreign power that’s transmitting all sorts of data we don’t know about.” —Matt Walsh

And Last…

“If we discovered life on Mars tomorrow, Joe Biden would send it money. … I think his only plan is to put a reverse mortgage on Alaska and keep spending.” —Senator John Kennedy (R-LA)

“It’s disgraceful that Biden’s entire electoral strategy relies on his Department of Justice prosecuting Donald Trump. More befitting of a banana republic than America.” —Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR)
