Wednesday Short Cuts

Upright: “The resignation of national security advisor Michael Flynn has the anti-Trump media declaring the new administration a ‘mess,’ in ‘turmoil’ and thrown into ‘chaos.’ Funny, these same Chicken Littles barely shrugged their shoulders during the turmoil-laden first 100 days of Barack Obama’s first term. … [A] dishonest media and preening political establishment pretending there’s something ‘unprecedented’ about such stumbles only discredit themselves.” —Michelle Malkin

Food for thought: “[T]he media is saying that [Mike] Flynn’s conversation with the Russian ambassador back in December could have left him open to blackmail. Are we serious about this? Flynn was open to blackmail? Who was it that the Drive-Bys wanted to see as president? That would be Hillary Rodham Clinton, who could have been blackmailed six ways from Sunday by the Russians and who the heck else we know. … What you voted against — the reason you voted for Trump — is exactly what you’re seeing day to day now from the Left and from the Democrat Party and from the media.” —Rush Limbaugh

For the record: “Right now, the campus is plagued by several interrelated pathologies: staggering student debt and costs, administrative bloat (often in conjunction with the vast investment in race/class/gender politics), an increasing absence of free speech and due process, and a shallow and therapeutic curriculum that does not guarantee the indebted students even basic literacy upon graduation.” —Victor Davis Hanson

Alpha Jackass: “The bottom line is that most years in the U.S., ladders kill far more Americans than Muslim terrorists do. Same with bathtubs. Ditto for stairs. And lightning. Above all, fear spouses: Husbands are incomparably more deadly in America than jihadist terrorists. And husbands are so deadly in part because in America they have ready access to firearms, even when they have a history of violence.” —NY Times’ Nicholas Kristof (But by all means, let’s glorify an ideology that promotes marital rape, genital mutilation and “honor” killings.)

Out on a limb: “Let’s be VERY clear: Flynn DID NOT make that Russian call on his own. He was INSTRUCTED to do so. He was TOLD to reassure them. Arrest Trump.” —Michael Moore

And last… “Is it now the official policy of the Democratic Party that there is no difference between legal and illegal immigration?” —Frank Fleming
