Thursday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Alejandro Mayorkas, Adrienne Elrod, Gary Bauer, Byron York, and more.


“The safety and security of the American people are our highest priority.” —DHS Secretary Alejandro “Open Borders” Mayorkas

The BIG Lies

“The border security steps we have taken over the past 18 months are bringing order.” —Alejandro Mayorkas

“The fact of the matter is our policy is working.” —Alejandro Mayorkas

“In this administration, the different agencies and departments across the federal enterprise are … doing more robust screening and vetting than ever before.” —Alejandro Mayorkas

“With respect to the people from Central Asia, we have no evidence that they are individuals plotting to harm the United States. That is inaccurate.” —Alejandro Mayorkas

“When it comes to immigration, the president has always had a twofold program: secure the border, and make sure we have a welcoming path of legal immigration.” —Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Jared Bernstein

Baghdad Bob

“I think you’ve got to, first of all, take a step back and look at what President Biden has done for the economy. He’s created over 15 million jobs. GDP has been at a record high.” —Biden campaign spokeswoman Adrienne Elrod

For the Record

“Dangerous anti-female attitudes are invading our country because of open borders. Leftists deny the problem. They’re horrified that Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein raped women on a casting couch, but they’re in denial when Latin American illegals rape.” —Betsy McCaughey

Debate Food for Thought

“The idea that [Dana] Bash and [Jake] Tapper can impartially moderate a debate featuring Donald Trump is laughable. Among other things, both of them pushed Hillary Clinton’s absurd ‘Russia collusion hoax’ to undermine the 2016 election. It would be nice if they apologized to Donald Trump during the debate, but they won’t.” —Gary Bauer

“It is just a fact that both the president and the former president could be rusty. Neither has debated in four years. Biden has been in the bubble of the White House, and Trump sailed through a Republican nomination process that he dominated so completely that he did not need to take part in any debates.” —Byron York

“If the Trump of 2016 shows up on Thursday evening, Biden is toast. If the Trump of 2020 shows up, Biden will stand a chance … if he’s able to stand at all.” —Ian Haworth

“No one expects that Joe Biden will be on cocaine.” —House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA)
