Wednesday Short Cuts

Of Trump’s budget, Hillary calls it “an unimaginable level of cruelty.” Her solution would be to spend us into oblivion.

Insight: “I want to make one thing clear. This war against our Constitution is not being fought way off in Madagascar or in Mandalay. It is being fought here — in our schools, our colleges, our churches, our women’s clubs. It is being fought with our money, channeled through the State Department. It is being fought twenty-four hours a day — while we remain asleep.” —William Jenner (1908-1985)

For the record: “Leaks have … played a very significant, negative role relative to our national security. The release of information not only undermines confidence in our allies about our ability to maintain secure information that we share with them; it jeopardizes sources and methods that are invaluable to our ability to find out what’s going on and what those threats are. Lives are at stake in many instances and leaks jeopardize those lives.” —Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats

Braying Jackass: “This administration is mounting an onslaught against the needs of children, people with disabilities, women and seniors.” —Hillary Clinton, who describes the Trump budget as “an unimaginable level of cruelty”

Non Compos Mentis: “Iranians show the world how it’s done.” —Jane Sanders praising Iran’s 70% voter turnout, but missing the completely un-democratic nature of the system

D'oh! “To have a president say, if he did, to the director of the FBI, or the DNI, the Director of National Intelligence, or the NRA person that — um, uh, that they should not go forward, it raises questions that need to be answered in a facts and law way, and not hearsay.” —Nancy Pelosi [emphasis added]

And last… “[Jihadis] kill us any way possible. They run us down in our streets. They gun down or blow up our children enjoying the innocence of young life. They stab and hack and behead. We weep. Flowers pile up at the scenes of the carnage. Songs are sung. The Islamism apologists leap into action. We are warned not to draw any broad conclusions. Politicians tell us there is little that can be done. What they mean is there is little that they have the courage to do.” —Gary Bauer
