Tuesday Short Cuts

Columnist Dennis Prager: “In 2013, of America’s 6,261 black homicide victims, more than 6,000 of them — 97 percent — were killed by people other than police. About three percent of black homicide victims were killed by police. And of that three percent, nearly every one was armed and dangerous. To label that an epidemic of police racism is a libel. In addition, more than 9 in 10 blacks murdered were murdered by another black person. Now that is an epidemic — an epidemic of black murderers. … The left is not only engaging in demagoguery and creating hysteria when it claims that ‘Blacks Lives Matter’ in reference to police killings of blacks. It is also not telling the truth. Black lives don’t really interest the left. If they did, the left would focus on all the black murderers taking black lives. The left’s overriding interest lies elsewhere: in defaming America, with its ‘legacy of slavery,’ ‘institutional racism’ and ‘white privilege,’ and in depicting white police as racists. To understand the left one must first understand that it hates conservatives more than it loves almost anything. Because if it really believed that ‘Black Lives Matter,’ its message would be ‘Black Murderers Matter.’”

Insight: “The human race divides itself politically into those who want to be controlled, and those who have no such desire.” —American writer Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988)

The BIG Lie: “2014 was the planet’s warmest year on record. Fourteen of the 15 hottest years on record have all fallen in the first 15 years of this century. This winter was cold in parts of our country — as some folks in Congress like to point out — but around the world, it was the warmest ever recorded.” —Barack Obama (Last year was not the warmest on record based on the most objective evidence, nor have almost all of the warmest years in recorded history occurred since the turn of the century.)

Demo-gogues: “I have to say that there are times where the dysfunction in the Senate just goes too far. This is an example of it. It’s gone too far. Enough. Enough. Call Loretta Lynch for a vote, get her confirmed. Put her in place. Let her do her job. This is embarrassing, a process like this.” —Barack Obama (Translation: I’ve got more insidious work to accomplish before 2017, and it sure would help if I had Eric Holder 2.0.)

Non Compos Mentis: “I want to be sure that we get small businesses starting and growing in America again. We have stalled out. I was very surprised to see that when I began to dig into it. Because people were telling me this as I traveled around the country the last two years, but I didn’t know what they were saying and it turns out that we are not producing as many small businesses as we use to.” —Hillary Clinton, who’s suddenly concerned about the disaster known as the Obama Recovery

Applied science: “Scientists say they’re now several steps closer to being able to resurrect extinct species. Might want to start with the Founding Fathers, before it’s too late.” —Fred Thompson
